April 2013 Empties Part 2!

I finished so many products this month, full size and sample size. I love the feeling of finishing up products and making space in my drawers. Generally, samples are reserved for travelling but I don't want them sitting around forever nor do I want to bring home empty sachets. Here are the samples that I finished up this month..

Primavera Hand & Nail Cream - I'm not usually a fan of ginger scents but this was really nice! It was light, fresh and the scent didn't linger for too long. It moisturized really well without feeling greasy or sticky. I adore my Weleda Skin Food though and, therefore, wouldn't purchase the full size.

Weleda Citrus Hydrating Lotion - This hydrates alright. I didn't think it was anything special and I didn't enjoy the super citrusy scent. It's not something that I'd purchase.

Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil - I just love this oil! It smells ever so slightly sweet, hydrates wonderfully and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I've already purchased the full size.

Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion - I finished 3 of these little samples and really wanted to love it. This smells just a little stronger than the body oil, which is nice, but I don't find it hydrates all that well on its own. I won't purchase the full size.

Cocoon Apothecary Petal Purity Exfoliating Facial Cleanser - I really enjoyed this sample. It doesn't have a very strong scent, but it does smell slightly like roses (which I normally don't like). It's provides a very gentle exfoliation, left my skin smooth and glowing. I'd consider picking up the full size.

Primavera Moisturizing Face Care Starter Kit (the 4 in the middle) - My mom and I weren't huge fans of this line. You can read the full review here.

John Masters Evening Primrose Shampoo for Dry Hair - I love John Masters hair products. Sadly, there was only enough in here to use once (maybe twice but I got a little product happy) and I couldn't tell if it did anything amazing for my hair. Not sure if I'll purchase the full size.

Suki Color Tinted Moisturizer in Porcelain - I was setting myself up to hate this product because Suki usually smells so strong but, to my surprise, this didn't smell like much. I mixed in a little Alima Pure Warm 2 foundation to make it slightly more yellow, applied it with my hands and out the door I went. It didn't cover, just evened out my complexion and made it glow. It's pretty expensive, not sure I'd purchase the full size.

I made quite a dent in my samples, feels sooooo good! 

Have you tried any of these products? I'd love to hear what you thought.


  1. So glad you like the Weleda body oil, I was left indifferent to the body lotions I wanted to love them but wasn't that bothered. x

    1. I know it's a favourite of yours and I know why! It's on sale right now, again, at whole foods and I'm debating picking up a back up lol. I'm glad you feel the same on the lotions, definitely nothing special xo

  2. I want to work through my samples's amazing how they all add up! I've been debating getting Weleda's Sea Buckthorn lotion (I love how it smells!) but maybe I'll go for the hand cream instead, if the actual lotion isn't all that great :)

    1. It's true! You get samples and just store then away until you look again and realize you have like a million of them. I too enjoy the smell of the sea buckthorn lotion. You should give it a shot anyway, you might like it.

  3. You really made a dent in your stash this month! I'm on the fence about pomegranate products. Some smell amazing and some smell a little too strong to me. I might look for that Weleda oil though to see how it smells, it does sound lovely.

    1. Thanks, I was so proud of myself! I don't normally gravitate towards pomegranate scents but this one is so faint. Let me know if you end up smelling it :)


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
