Is It Worth a Full Size? Volume 2

I have a few more samples that I have used up and want to share another volume of Is it Worth a Full Size?  I did this before and you can view that post here.  The basic idea is, I have a ton of samples of products from beauty subscriptions and Sephora Orders, I try it out, and let you know my thoughts and specifically would I buy a full-sized version of the product.  There are only a couple here, and I am trying to get through more of these more frequently, so stay tuned for some more.

The Art of Shaving Shaving Cream

Is it worth a full size? Volume 2

I have posted about this here.  This is something that my husband uses.  This sample came from the original sampler kit that I purchased for him one Christmas.  It came with us to Mexico.  In fact of the samples in this post were used on that trip!  As you can see, we cut it open to get every last drop out!  That is always a good sign that the product is great!

What it is:
An advanced, soothing shaving cream for sensitive skin.

What it is formulated to do:
The Art of Shaving® Shaving Cream – Unscented softens and lifts the beard for a close and comfortable shave. This expert formula creates a rich, warm, protective lather that acts as a cushion between the blade and the skin, preventing irritation and razor burn. Skin is exceptionally protected and left smooth and moisturized.

Russell loves this stuff, and has said over and over this is the best shaving cream he has used.  He just finished another full-size of it, and I haven’t yet repurchased it.  He is now using something from Aveeno that I had, which he actually says he likes.  Well that is considerably cheaper….We shall see how that pans out.

Hask Bamboo Oil Strengthening Deep Conditioner

Is it worth a full size? Volume 2

A protein-based complex that penetrates  hair to build strength, reinforce & protect

This deep conditioner is a super strengthening, moisturizing treatment that will reinforce fragile hair. Silicone rich bamboo is known to provide a strong foundation for hair and fortifies to help improve flexibility, leaving hair resilient and less prone to split ends and breakage.

Directions: Apply a generous amount of deep conditioner to clean, wet hair. Massage into hair focusing on damaged areas. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse well. Style as usual. Ideal for use 1-2 times per week, or as needed. For best results, use the HASK Bamboo Oil system.

I thought this would be handy to have in Mexico, since I wasn’t sure how hard the water would be, and I knew I would be swimming in both chlorine and the ocean.  I did use it up.  I honestly don’t know if I would purchase it again, it was cheap and only a small amount, and really it went a long way.  It was fine though.  I bought it at Bed Bath and Beyond.

Philosphy Ultimate Miracle Worker Multi-Rejuvenating Cream SPF 30 and Ultimate Miracle Worker Night

Is it worth a full size? Volume 2

I used these up too.

Day Cream:

What it is:
A multi-rejuvenating face cream with broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen.

Solutions for:
– Fine lines/wrinkles
– Pores
– Brightness

Night Cream:

What it is:
A multi-rejuvenating nighttime serum and cream hybrid.

What it is formulated to do:
This overnight moisturizer targets all major visible signs of aging including wrinkles, firmness, texture, and pores—boosting skin’s radiance. The two-in one nighttime multi-rejuvenation combines the concentrated power of a serum with the nourishing benefits of a cream to create a youthful-looking appearance.

The day cream retails at $75 and the night cream retails at $80.  They were fine, but honestly, I have been trying some drugstore skincare that I have been loving.  Stay tuned for some posts on that!  I would not re-purchase.

I have used up quite a few more samples but need to formulate my thoughts around them.  Have you used any up lately?  Please share in the comments below.
