Finish It Up Friday | Empties #4 | Samples I've Used Up

Skinetica  Anti-Blemish Skin Treatment*
, £9.99, full size, Link
Unfortunatly this made my skin freak out. I don't know what it was but for some reason I reacted to it. I did use this up to see if it was some sort of bizzare "purging" thing because people rave about this but my skin didn't like it. I sounds like it's a rare reaction so it might be worth trying it out if you have problems with blemish prone skin.
Decleor Phytopeel Face Peel Exfoliating Cream, £23.40 full size, Link
This was okay. It wasn't really a big enough sample for me to use over a long period of time like I like to do with skincare but it was okay in the few times I could use it. I don't think I would purchase this because it's crazy expensive for me when I have cheaper skincare that works for me. 
Institut Esthederm Bronze Repair Anti Wrinkle Tanning Cream, £55 full size, Link
I didn't really get this product. I'm not sure what it was to be quite honest. Was it a self tanner? A SPF? I don't really know so I used it with caution. It didn't make me orange or anything but I couldn't see if it was SPF. I should have googled it but I just kinda used it to get rid of it. I don't have an opinion on it and I wouldn't repurchase for the HUGE price tag. 

 Icecrystals by Freezer 24-7, £35 full size, Link
Used this but didn't get it. I think it was just a face wash type thing and I wouldn't purchase the full size. Far to expensive for my liking and it wasn't amazing! 
Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream in Light, £9.99 full size, Link
I liked this BB cream but if I were to purchase a BB cream from Garnier it would be the oil free formula. I find that to be longer lasting and the fair colour matches me. It did even out my skintone, offer a little coverage and it helped keep my dry skin from looking disgusting. 
Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10, £34.50 full size, Link 
I got this free in the post from Vichy when I signed up on their sight. It was a nice sample and I liked using the serum but I couldn't notice any difference or justify the price with the small amount you get here. I would use it again if I had a sample or got it as a gift for some strange reason but I wouldn't buy it for myself. 
Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Eyes and Lashes, £34.50 full size, Link
I didn't like this all that much. I used it on my eyes and on my lashes but felt really strange doing it. I think I'm just gonna stick to an eye cream and nothing for my lashes. My lashes aren't great but they aren't that bad that I need a serum or treatment for them at the moment. I'm also only 20 years old so I don't need anything to special for under my eyes at the moment.  



  1. Do you use more in summer or winter? Do you change your regime?

  2. Do they give away lots of free samples?


I read and reply to every comment, and love hearing from you all!
