My sister is the best at seeking out mini samples of high-end brands and always manages to collect a few freebies to give me on Christmas and birthdays to go alongside a gift. That, added to the Benefit mini’s I received from my parents and a family friend, means that I now have quite an impressive skincare selection to sample!
I love trying out different brands and discovering which products I like. I think there is no better way to do it than with miniatures- especially if you can get your hands on free samples. The full size versions often require a bit of a splurge, so it’s better to be confident in the products first so you know it won’t be money wasted.
I got quite a mix of mini products this year – mainly skincare and a little bit of make-up too – including;
Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm
Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cream
Kiehl’s Precision Lifting & Pore-Tighening Concentrate
Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart DNA Enzyme Complex
Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion
Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream
Benefit That Gal Brightening Primer
Benefit High Beam Highlighter
Benefit Dandelion Lip Gloss*
Benefit Bad Gal Mascara*
Benefit Gimme Brow*
*Okay, so these are technically not ‘skincare’ items, but they are miniatures!
Do let me know if you have tried any of these brands/ products before, what you thought of them!?
