I have approximately seventeen million samples. I need to get rid of them before they take up any more space in my drawers.  I thought it would be fun to do some quick mini-reviews on the samples to see whether or not I would buy the full size.  I hope to do this fairly regularly!  Without further adieu, here are my impressions!

Benefit the POREfessional

2015-10-03 14.06.52

This is a primer that minimizes the effects of pores. My pores are not particularly visible, but when applied to my nose and forehead this product blurred them nicely. It also has a nice smell.

Purchase full size? If I had visible pores that bothered me, yes. As it is now, no.

fresh Rose Face Mask

2015-10-03 14.16.28

This is a hydrating gel face mask. It appears to have real bits of rose petal in the gel itself. It smells great and was cooling on my skin. When I washed it off my skin felt softer.   I bet it would be even nicer if you put it in the fridge first.

bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Maverick

2015-10-03 14.11.45

The product is a sticky sparkly lipgloss with brown undertones. The color isn’t for me, but the doe-foot applicator is nice.

Purchase full size? Nope

Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer

2015-10-03 14.08.38

This primer is formulated with salicylic acid to treat blemishes while also priming the skin for makeup. I only get a scattered pimple, but I used it when I had a small breakout. I didn’t particularly notice any difference in pimple size or healing duration. It does work as a nice primer though.

Purchase full size? No

L’Occitane en Provence Dry Skin Hand Cream

2015-10-03 14.04.59

This dry skin hand cream is silky and doesn’t make hands greasy. I popped this tube in my purse to use at work.

2015-10-03 14.04.47

Purchase full size? Yes

Boscia Thermal Black Cleanser

2015-10-03 14.06.23

This is a black colored cleanser that warms when used. It cleansed my skin adequately, but the warming effect seemed a bit gimmick-y.

2015-10-03 14.14.48

Purchase full size? No

Formula X Sheer Strength in Wondrous

2015-10-03 14.18.06

This product is a milky-pink color that is pretty and sheer. It is work appropriate.

Purchase full size? No, because I have a very similar shade already (Deborah Lippmann La Vie En Rose)
