Sephora + Samples

Now I know why Sephora keeps giving out so many samples with each order.

...Because they work! And I'm left having a serious discussion with my credit card. I've only been able to try a few samples so far, but I just wanted to write a quick review on them to share my amazement.

First up, the Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream.
I get these really gross dry patches on my arms during the winter, and they're usually there until spring no matter how diligent I am with applying lotion. I've been using this .1 oz sample of cream for the past week, (and not even everyday!) and the patches are mostly gone.

At $19 for 1.25oz/$25 for 2.75oz, I can't call it cheap, but I'll be buying it anyway as soon as they stock it again because it definitely works.

Next, the Perfekt Gel. I'm not sure if this is necessary, but it makes my skin really soft. It's used like a primer. As with the Yu-Be cream, a little goes a long way if I'm careful with it.

At $17.50 for .25oz/$57.50 for 1oz., I won't be buying it anytime soon...but maybe one day when I feel like I deserve a reward.

ExfoliKate Treatment stung a bit when I put it on my skin, but pain is gain, right? I enjoyed that cinnamon smell, and my face felt really smooth after. I only used this once, but the reviews are great on this product.

At $19 for .5oz/$85 for 2oz, it's definitely too expensive right now, but I'll also be keeping an eye on this one for sure.

And there you have it! If you're looking for skin-care products, I definitely recommend giving these a try.
