Beauty: Mini Skincare Loves

So, mini products, they just the cutest huh? Beauty monthly subscription boxes, free gifts with purchases, and all that jazz doing the rounds around the beauty world - I end up just throwing them in a big box, and never really give them any attention.

So I have picked out the best of the best of the minis in my stash, and have finally give them the attention they most definitely deserve. 

mini skincare loves

Bioderma Sensibio H20: The queen of micellar waters. Yes it is a tad more expensive than the highstreet ones, but this is streets ahead.  This removes everything, heavy eye-make up, hard core stay on all day foundation. No rubbing, no scent, no irritation. It is just a pure pleasure to use. 

Pixi Glow Tonic: I have used this for many years now, an exfoliating toner that I use a couple of times a week. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, soft and exfoliated, without the use of any micro-beads. It is a very easy, and quick way to revitalise, brighten, and soften dull, and tired skin.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum: First time trying this cult product, and I like. I use every other night, it feels cooling and hydrating on the skin, and sinks in pretty quickly. I am not to sure about the scent. Overall improvements include texture, and my skin feeling tighter and firmer.

Emma Hardie Radiance Facial Oil: A sucker for a facial oil,  as you all have gathered, the smell of this oil is by far the nicest I have ever smelt. Packed full of 9 essential oils, I suppose you wouldn't expect anything less. It feels super luxurious, nourishing and non greasy. An absolute treat. 

Foreo: This sample Foreo caught my eye, and I thought I would try the £30 sample (100, one minute uses)  before forking out on the £90 rechargeable one. Less scary than a Clarisonic, this cleansing device vibrates its way around the face. Aiming to help de-clog pores, and loosen dead skin cells, this baby pimps up the whole taking the make-up off lark, to a new level. I use with my second cleanse, and I love the way my skin feels after. 

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream: The serums Sista, from another mister. This is cooling, hydrating, my eyes are less puffy and dry when using this every night. A little goes a long way. I love the texture, it feels a little like a serum, but with the creaminess and nourishing factor that a moisturiser would offer. 

All hail the minis!

What samples, or minis are you loving at the mo?

    1. I so agree. I am gonna buy the full one. Xx

  2. I had the mini Estee Lauder sample too, and I don't really get the point of serum samples as you have to e using it for around 3-4 weeks to see the effects anyway.. I didn't really like the smell if I'm honest, either! I'm loving your mini make-up stash though! xx

    1. I never ever see any difference with samples! But this serum, after 5 days I could see a huge amount. I only ever use them around the T-Zone, so a little goes a long way. Haha xx

  3. Oh my gosh how cute are all these minis? I so need to try EM Face Oil, can you believe I've never tried any of her products?! xx
