Sample Thursdays.....Week 1

So the first week was interesting, I started using things from my draw. It was like choosing anything of my liking from a huge store (or my draw hehe) its like I went shopping and had that feeling of  buying something new and getting to use it for the first time. :) For the first week I used a range of products from face to hair.

I will also be giving them a Staring system 5 being the best and 1 being Well not as good  :)

So Here We Go...............

This is what I chose this week to Trial :P

Palmolive Body Butter Strawberry Smoother, Exfoliating Body  Wash
This product smells great, it has exfoliating beads but dose not really give you a deep exfoliation.
i don't think i will buy this product again because if i did, it would only be for the smell :)
You can find the Products Here

Schwarzkopf Extra Care
I have long, thick hair and i don't think this product really suited my hair type. The shampoo went into my hair great, it cleaned it and took all the products out that i had used during the week. The conditioner was just as good as the shampoo but didn't give my hair that soft feel i wanted or get from my regular conditioner. The treatment was hair to get evenly through my hair and it didn't feel very nice either, i left it in for the time it had said but it didn't give me the result i wanted. I will not be purchasing this product, simply because of the fact that my Tresemme' shampoo and conditioner do a better job and are more suited to my hair type :)  
You can Find this Product Here

Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser
I really really Love this product, it has become one of my favorite foaming cleansers to use when im not exfoliating my face. It lathers up really well and leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed. I will be purchasing this product when i have run out of my other foaming cleanser.
You can find this product Here 

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Primer
This primer is a good one, it is gel like and when you put it on your face it is quick drying, which is always a good thing to have in a primer because you don't want to have to be waiting a long time for your primer to dry!. it also feels like it it protecting my skin under my makeup, and gives me a smooth surface to work with when applying foundation, concealer ect.
When my currant primer runs out i will be purchasing this product. You can find more information Here

All Avene Products can be Found Here


Avene Moisturizing Self Tanning Lotion

Im not really sure about this one, i like the way it gave me a glow, but it doesn't really have a nice smell to it, its like normal fake tan smells (im not a fan).
The colour after an hour was a nice natural tan colour no orangeness here ladies! 
I don't think I will purchase this product but i am still unsure.

Avene Micellar Lotion, Cleanser and makeup remover

I liked this product, I used it just to cleanse my face and also to remove makeup. It didn't leave my skin dry at all and removed the day dirt's from my face but it didn't really remove all my makeup as much as i wanted it to. i would recommend this product for light makeup such as BB creams and eyeliner removal just the light makeups.

 Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub
This product cleanses the face well, it dose not leave the face dry but it leaves it fresh, clean and moisturized. it has little pink beads in it which is cute if you like pink. The only thing i found about this product it that it doesn't give you that feel that your face has been properly exfoliated, because it is only a gentle one.

 Burts Bees Radiance, Body Lotion with Royal Jelly
This product was really enjoyable to use, i really liked the smell, the texture and the way it just glides on easily. I like the packaging its really cute and the end result? it leaves  your skin smooth and very hydrated. I even used it on my husband!  i will be purchasing this product in the future! 
You can find this Here

GAME by Davidoff Cool Water
Eau De Toilette for Woman

This product smells nice and fresh, it lasts about half the day then it needs to be reapplied. I quite like it for an everyday perfume but its one i could see my self getting sick of very quickly.
this is a Maybe purchase product. :) 

So i hope you liked Week 1 of Sample Thursdays, Please Subscribe to see what products i try next, and leave comments, i love seeing what you have to say about these products.
