I seem to constantly have a stash of beauty samples sitting about not doing very much. Unless of course it’s a product that I have been desperate to try, then it will be ripped into ASAP.
In the interest of using some of these up I started doing a monthly take 3 beauty samples first impressions post. Now I would say it’s actually been about three months since I have produced one of these posts. Slacking!! I know.
It’s about time I made use of some of those samples then.
The three product samples I have been testing out are;
- La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo +
- Bliss The Youth as we Know It anti-aging moisture cream
- Vichy Dermablend Foundation – Opal
I have been using this as a topical treatment for spots and old scaring from old breakouts. It actually is doing a great job at preventing any minor outbreaks from becoming worse. I also feel that it is fading the stubborn acne scar on my cheek.
I am impressed with this and would buy the full size product.
The formula is very rich and did skin in to the skin nicely without any greasiness.
I found it add an odd herble scent that I was not keen on. The snell didn’t longer though so.
The formula of this foundation was a lot thicker than I was expecting.
The foundation doesn’t blend well with just your finger tips so I used my real techniques buffing brush. This worked much better and provided a nice even level of coverage.
I didn’t feel that this lasted as long as some of my other foundations as it started to break down and look patchy by the early afternoon.
As there are other foundations I prefer I wouldn’t purchase the full size of this.
Have you tried any of these products before? What did you think of them?
