This is the first post of the[Try it out] series! I tried out 3 new products this week. For every product I tried, I will post a picture, tell you the name of the product( obviously), my thoughts, price of the full sized item, my ratings, and whether I want to purchase the full size product.
1) Nivea Q10 Plus Anti-wrinkle Serum Pearls
Like the name suggested, this is an anti wrinkle serum. The packaging is interesting for a sample like this. The idea is to squeeze out the product like you would with the actual bottle. Through squeezing, the yellow beads inside will break and turn into a paste.
I couldn't tell if it's anti aging, since I don't have any sign of aging . I use this under my normal face moisturizer and it helps the absorption of my moisturizer. Honestly, I was surprised that it does not break me out or give me a reaction. I said that because the scent is so strong; It actually reminds me of men's cologne.
Price: $16.77 CAD 40ML
Would I purchase it: 1/5
2) Origins GinZing Coffee Booster Eye Cream
It claims to be a "refreshing rye cream to brighten and depuff". Origins described it "like a shot of espresso for tired eyes". So as I open up the packaging, I was expecting the smell of coffee. But there was no coffee scent at all. ( Am I nose blind??)
I like how light weight the cream is, but it really feels moisturizing and refreshing. The cream is not too thick so it is suitable for summer too. I have been staying up late for assignments, I noticed how it brightens up my under eye For eye cream, a little goes a long way. I have been using this product day and night everyday for about a week, I still have more product left.
Price: $23 CAD 0.5 oz
Would I purchase it : 5/5
3) Burt's Bees intense hydration night cream with clary sage
It is a face cream, but I already had moisturizer on my face, so I decided to try it out on the driest part of my body, which are my feet and legs.
I love how the scent is not fake nor powerful. It has a light musky feeling, very relaxing and calming.
As I massage the product into my skin, I noticed how the product itself is not greasy, heavy or sticky. It absorbs quickly without any residue feeling but my skin feel moisturized.
This tiny pack lasted about 3 day, I think it's a good sample size because I got to use it more than once.
Price: $29.99 CAD 50g
Would I purchase it: 4/5 ( I would, not now, I have too much creams to finish up)
