Quick recap: This month, I’m attempting to work through some of the bite-sized beauty products I’ve accrued over the past several… years, to be honest. Unlike my sister I’m not blasting through my samples at warp speed, but like her, I have some samples that are older than my kid.
Speaking of my kid – this hasn’t exactly been a week for long leisurely showers or baths, between a baby working through sleep changes and the fact that Matt and I have been painting our living room every single night, when she goes to sleep. I’m tired. Time that could be spent using teeny lotion samples is being spent mashing a wipe across my face and going to bed. Maybe next week I’ll delve into some fun stuff.
But, this week, I did manage to pamper myself more than usual. I tried to use up the practical things like shampoo first, because no matter how tired I am, I have to wash my hair. I don’t have many little foil packets, so I suspect next week will see more samples killed, once I run through my larger products started this week.
This terrible photo of my bathroom floor in bathroom lighting brought to you by it being well past my bedtime.
Point form details – go!
- 15 samples killed in Week One
- The Jergens self tanner made me, and everyone else doing Sample Killah, apparently, turn 50 shades of orange. I was enjoying the product and thinking it made me look nice and tan all the way up to waking up on Day 3 wondering why the eff I was streaked with orange. I am too afraid to attempt the third package until my blotche fade out.
- I finally used up the Honest Company body wash! Matt signed up for their trial a few months back, mostly for the diapers. For the record, their diapers are pretty awesome for disposables – if we primarily used disposables, and if shipping to Canada wasn’t crazy, we’d use them.
- (Speaking of the Honest Company, Matt was really frustrated that he had to call in to cancel the trial package and couldn’t do it online. When he finally got through to them, after cancelling, the agent asked if he had any other needs and when he said no, she said, “Okay, love you, bye!” and hung up. He felt weird for the rest of the day, apparently.)
- I couldn’t get the John Frieda root repair foilies to open up in the shower. Those particular products are formulated with eucalyptus, which had a nice cooling action on my mouth when I ingested a bunch of it trying to rip open the foil with my teeth. #fail
That’s all, folks. Aside from the Jergen’s fiasco, I don’t really have any standout products this week, good or bad. Nothing smelled horrendous, nothing made me feel particularly pretty, nothing mangled my face. Could be worse!
