Three Garnier BB Samples - Light.

Three Garnier BB Samples – Light. I received these samples ages ago, tried it once and never bothered again as my skin was just too bad. My skin has been improving lately so I decided to give these another go. I wouldn’t wear this for evenings out as I like full coverage for evening wear, I did, however, find them perfect for work. The only reasons I haven’t re-purchased are a) because I’m trying to use up most of my current foundations before buying any more and b) because I want to try some of the other BB creams that are currently on the market, in particular the MUA one.

 Pantene Pro-V Shampoo, Conditioner & 2 min Repair Masque samples, normal-thick hair.

Pantene Pro-V Shampoo, Conditioner & 2 min Repair Masque samples, normal-thick hair.  These didn’t wow me but they didn’t do anything wrong either. I would probably re-purchase if they were on offer but wouldn’t go out of my way to track them down.

ELF HD Powder

ELF HD Powder. I swear by this stuff and panic when I’m running low. I use this everyday and find that it helps to combat my oily skin a little and my foundation hangs around for longer when wearing this. I have already re-purchased as I can’t live without it.

Sample Size White-Glo Toothpaste from February Carmine Box

Sample Size White-Glo Toothpaste from February Carmine Box. Originally I planned to use this alongside my usual sensitive toothpaste as I was worried that my teeth would play up if I switched to this. I then decided against being sensible and went straight into using this, thankfully my sensitivity didn’t kick in while using. I could see that my teeth looked visibly whiter when using, and actually still do. My teeth also felt cleaner when using. Would I re-purchase? Yes, but just for special occasions. I do worry about my teeth and the fact that this made my teeth look whiter and feel cleaner made me worry that it may be stripping away protective layers. It probably isn’t but as I said I am a worrier when it comes to teeth, they’re too expensive to mess with!

Boots Softening Foot Lotion

Boots Softening Foot Lotion. I’m not going to lie, this has taken me about a year to use. I am absolutely rubbish at remembering/bothering to moisturise my feet, which is probably why they are so dry and horrible. As a result of using it so infrequently I don’t feel that I can give a proper verdict. I wouldn’t re-purchase because my feet didn’t feel any nicer after using this, but who knows, maybe if used every day it may have worked.

Bionova Eye Wrinkle Treatment from December GlossyBox

Bionova Eye Wrinkle Treatment from December GlossyBox. This little sample actually lasted quite a while, a little goes a long way with this product. I do feel that my under eye area is smoother since using and wrinkles don’t seem as visible. I wouldn’t re-purchase simply because I wouldn’t dream of paying £43 for the full size product.

I finished the second of the Millennium Trilogy this month and am now onto the third, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest. I have really been enjoying this trilogy even though I found the first book quite slow starting. This book starts off a lot faster and held my interest in most places. Although I do find that the author sometimes goes into too much detail about irrelevant things for my liking, which leads me to day dream and not concentrate on the book. That aside I highly recommend this book trilogy.

Looking forward…
4.412 A BBQ at a friends house to celebrate her birthday.
5.4.12 Day off work followed by a works night out for one of my colleague’s leaving dos, not sure where yet, probably Cardiff.
14.4.12 We’re hoping to have a BBQ to celebrate my birthday the following week, depending on the weather.
20.4.12 My birthday 🙂 I’m not sure what we’re doing yet, I’m hoping to go away somewhere for the night, or possibly go to Jamie’s Italian in Cardiff for a meal. I guess I need to make my mind up soon.

I can’t believe how little I have planned next month, this excites me as I feel as though I haven’t stopped the past few months. Hopefully I can get my house in some sort of clean state as it is currently a tip and relax loads!

What products have you used up this month? What book are you currently reading?  Do you have much planned for April?

    I'm pretty sure I have my BB cream sample packs hanging around somewhere still! Should probably give them a try!

      You may as well give them a try, you have great skin so you'll probably get on quite well with it x
