Wow, I haven’t kept up with this blog in over a year. It’s embarrassing really, but a new year means more self-motivation (at least for several weeks).

My first post back is just a recollection of a few products I ordered from Sephora online back in December. The benefit from buying them online instead of in the store is that the purchase comes with three free samples. In addition, I was able to get another free sample as a 100-point reward with my Beauty Insider membership (which is free by the way, so I definitely recommend it).

I’ll be doing some product reviews later once I’ve had time to test all of the products. There’s links for each product on Sephora’s website, but only for the full-size versions since most of the samples are no longer in stock.

Wei Royal Ming Firming and Hydrating Cream

First, we have the samples.

If you clicked the link, yes, you’re reading that right. The 1.7 oz version of this cream in $98. I just had to pick this sample to see if it’s so hydrating, because I’ll never be slapping any $98 product on my face!

Unfortunately, the bottle is absolutely tiny (smaller than my index finger), but hopefully will last at least a few days. I’ve always had problems with exceedingly dry skin, so that’s another reason I’m eager to try out this cream.

Gucci Guilty

I’m already loving this fragrance. It’s a little too strong for my easily affected nostrils, but still a very unique smell. I’ve never had a scent with a hint of citrus before, and there’s also pepper as well.

Soap & Glory Righteous Body Butter

I had actually ordered a Soap & Glory facial cleanser sample, but apparently it was already out of stock (or someone made a boo boo), so I have body butter instead.

That’s okay, because body butter is something I’ve never tried.

Itchy legs is something that’s been problematic for the last few years, so maybe this will help. The packaging says it was voted “Britain’s best body butter.” Challenge accepted.

Phyto PhytoSpecific Moisturizing Styling Cream

There’s mixed reviews about this styling cream on Sephora’s website, but since it’s just a sample I don’t mind giving it a try. However, my frizzy mane is really long and unruly too, so I’ll probably be able to test this product only one or two times before it’s empty.

Frizz is the number one annoyance I have with my hair, and it always has been. I’ve tried different serums and conditioners, but none have made any remarkable difference.

This serum is made with argan oil, which has surged in popularity lately. I’ve only tried the product once so far, but it did work better the current Garnier anti-frizz serum I’m using. The drawback? It’s $12 for a .5 ounce bottle. We only live once guys!

Sephora Fragrance Rollerball Sampler for Her

Sephora Listing

Fragrances have never been an interest of mine, but after gifting them for other people I decided to try this five-count sampler as a starting point.

If you’re not a fan of sweet, floral scents this isn’t for you. Pretty much all of the scents are floral. Fragrances included in this set are Chloé’s Chloé See, Gucci’s Gucci Flora, Juicy Couture’s Viva La Juicy, Marc Jacobs’ Dot, and Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb.

The bonus, though, is that it includes a certificate for a free rollerball of whichever scent. My favorite so far is probably the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, though the Marc Jacobs perfume Dot smells delightful as well.

In the next few weeks I’ll have some reviews of the products once I’ve been able to sample  all of them. Let me know of some great fragrances, because I’m still a newbie with this!
