How ’bout Them Samples # 5 Review

how bout them samples |

I told you a few weeks ago that I would let you know what I think of each of these samples and if I would purchase these items based on my experiences with the samples.

Since I started doing this a few months ago I have really enjoyed using the samples and trying out these new things.

Here is the review of the fifth group of what I have tried out…

clean and clear |

Clean and Clear Deep Action 60 second shower mask

I was having some skin issues and couldn’t figure out what was going on.  I think it may have been because I was eating more sugar and candy, but maybe there was something else going on, I don’t know.  Anyway, long story short, I used this Clean and Clear Deep Action 60 second shower mask every day and my skin started looking awesome!  This 1 oz tube lasted me about 2 weeks.

A 5 oz bottle of this Clean and Clear Deep Action 60 second shower mask costs around $5. (worth every penny in my opinion.)

I have used this entire 1 oz sample and have already purchased a full-size bottle, so obviously…

YES, based on the sample, I would and did buy this Clean and Clear Deep Action 60 second shower mask.

dove purely pampering |
Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash

I have used a few different Dove body washes and I usually love them.  I don’t know if I just got a bad batch, but I didn’t like this body wash at all. The scent was ok, kinda shea butter like, not too strong.  The consistency was really thick and creamy, so I thought it would be great, but it let me down.  I had a really tough time getting this body wash to lather.  I also had a tough time getting it out of the bottle…too bad, I had high hopes.

A full sized 22 oz bottle costs $5.50, this sample size can be bought for $1.19.

Based on the sample, NO, I would not buy this Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash.

n4 prep and protect |
N4 Lumiere d’hiver Super Comb Prep and Protect

This N4Lumiere d’hiver Super Comb Prep and Protect has a nice pleasant soft scent. It has a lightweight formula that leaves my hair feeling soft, and looking shiny and healthy. My daughter loves to have me spray this in her hair.

A full sized 6.7 fl oz. bottle costs $32 and this sample 1 oz size bottle costs $9.

Based on the sample, YES, I would buy this N4Lumiere d’hiver Super Comb Prep and Protect

candied vanilla hand lotion |
Mor Candied Vanilla Hand and Body Lotion

While I did like the way this lotion smelled at first the longer I wore it the more I disliked it.  It has a very strong vanilla bean scent to it and it definitely smells sweet like candy.  But too sweet and too candy like.  The lotion itself was ok, but the scent was just too strong to get over.

The sample size costs $2.25 and the full sized 100 ml 3.3 fl oz tube costs $25.

Based on the sample, NO, I would not buy this Mor Candied Vanilla Hand and Body Lotion

Swisspers Cotton Rounds

I both love and hate these cotton rounds.  The exfoliating bumpy side is absolutely wonderful!  The opposite smoother side leaves little cotton pieces all over my face.  Because I like the bumpy side so much I can forgive it for the little cotton left overs.

Based on the sample, YES, I would buy this

vaseline intensive care |
Vaseline Intensive Care unscented lotion

This is one of the best hand lotions that I have used in a long time!  It sinks into the skin quickly without leaving a greasy feel to the skin.  A 10 oz bottle costs around $3.50.

As a nurse and mother, my hands get so sore and dry from washing them so many times a day. I have already used this entire 1 oz. sample and have bought a new full sized bottle.  So that already being said…

Based on the sample, YES, I would buy this Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion.

vitabath |
Vitabath Gelee

This bath and shower gel was great but kind of strange at the same time!  It had a wonderful lather that was actually a bright green like the color of the gelee. It definitely left my skin feeling clean without being overly dry.  And while it has a clean scent, I didn’t love the way it smells.  It reminded me of the soap that I used to use at the hospital to clean the patients. Pleasant, but kind of clinical at the same time.

A 32 oz bottle costs around $38, and as far as I know there are 4 scents available, so maybe one of them is better.

Based on the sample, YES, I would buy this Vitabath Gelee, but in the other scent that is available. 

I have been doing really well with not making any unnecessary beauty purchases!  I don’t think that I have ever gone this long without buying new makeup!  I think a lot of times the excitement of getting the new things is greater than that of actually trying out and using the samples.
