Lost Posts: Summer of Samples Week 1 Summary

(I went into my drafts section, and OMG I have so many posts I never shared! Here we go, Petite Feet: The Lost Posts)


I made it through the first week of my sampling!  Here's the roundup.

June 27

๐ŸŒ› Last night's sample: History of Whoo All in One cream. ๐ŸŒ› 

First off, I love this brand so much. I wish I could afford it on a regular basis! #brokegirlproblems! 
Just like the last cream of theirs that I used, I was not at all disappointed with the moisture payoff. If you have very oily skin or live in a humid climate like I do, you may want to skip this for day use. 
It almost had the texture of petroleum jelly in my opinion, until you apply it. It went on very smooth and didn't feel greasy. My skin felt like it had gotten an extra boost of moisture that my normal night creams just don't provide 
Smell is mildly medicinal, but not at all unpleasant.
Best part? No breakouts this morning! Heavier creams generally cause at least one breakout, especially when Aunt Flo is due in town, but I woke up this morning with plumper skin minus the breakouts. Win! 
Will I purchase? Maybe if i had the extra money. For now I will stick to what I can afford ๐Ÿ˜…

๐ŸŒ› Last night was all about Etude House๐ŸŒ› 

I already love the Baking Powder Crunch Pore Scrub, so I had great feelings going into the cleansing foam. I used it with my Etude face brush not expecting it to have the same grit as the scrub. It foams yet exfoliates very nicely. I felt clean yet not dried out. Definitely want the full size! 

Even though it's been out a while, I haven't tried the Moistful Collagen products mainly because I feared they would be too heavy. I couldn't have been more wrong! The essence is thin all while leaving the skin feeling moisturized without the weight. Same with the cream. It's got more of a gel texture in my opinion. It's light and smells ahhhmazing. I didn't feel like I had a million products on my face even after I'd finished my full routine. 

Etude never disappoints me ❤️❤️ Total toot!

๐ŸŒ› Tonight's sample is the Tony Moly Panda's Dream White Magic Cream ๐ŸŒ› 
If you're looking for an instant white to even out your skin tone then this is it. It's got a very light and whipped texture and a lovely smell, even though the scent is rather strong. 
I found that this went on smooth but didn't absorb very well at all. It took some work to get it to blend into my skin.

This cream completely lacks moisture, which is good if you put makeup on over it. I personally found it extremely drying, which made my nose area even oilier in the end as it tried to overcompensate for the dryness. 
Would I buy this? Probably not. I've seen lots of hype around this and I just didn't think it was worth it. I have a second pouch that I'll try again later to make sure it's not just my skin being ornery. 
Have you used this and had better results?

๐ŸŒ› Last night was all about Tatcha, another brand I'm absolutely crazy about๐ŸŒ› 
The indigo soothing rice enzyme powder lived up to all of the expectations I had based on my use of their other rice powders. It gently exfoliates while soothing thanks to the indigo. Bonus points for being blue! My skin felt clean without being irritated or dried out, which usually happens after I exfoliate. 
Ok, the luminous deep hydration firming serum... It's so damn beautiful. I sat there like a big dork and watched it sparkle in the light before I actually used it. I found it to feel rather heavy even though it's a very light serum. My dry spots drank it in, but my oilier spots rebelled. It is definitely best used in smaller quantities. 
I finished off with the ageless enriching renewal cream because I'm addicted to moisture. It smells like the other creams I've used from the brand, and felt like it went from cream to oil as I put it on. Very smooth, very moisturizing. It is a bit heavy so a little goes a long way. 
I'm not sure if using all of these together was a good idea since its the middle of summer and I did start to sweat it off not long after, but this morning my skin felt amazing and only had one or two breakouts - all hormonal thank blob. My skin really dug the combo of soothing and super moisture shot. 
What are your favorite Tatcha products! (I'm soooo addicted to their rice powders and lippies ❤️❤️❤️)

๐ŸŒ› Tonight's sample fare: Guรฉrisson 9complex essence and cream๐ŸŒ› 
I know I've talked about this before, but I really love it. 
The essence made my skin soooo happy. My dry areas drank it in, my oily areas drank it in, overall a very happy face! It is very light and moisture packed. It also smells deliciously citrusy mixed with floral. 
I can sing lots of praises of the cream, too. Creamy and goes on smooth, smells heavenly, and perfectly compliments the essence. I can only imagine what my skin would do if I used the whole line! 
This is definitely a tootie toot toot!



For those of you who don't already, follow my instagram for more of these micro-reviews! I'd love to have you as a part of the fam ❤️

(In the coming days I'll be putting out more of these lost posts. It's fun reading them and reliving the feelings I had when I posted them!)

  1. I've been wanting to try some History of Whoo All products but they're so pricey. That cream you tried sounds really lovely. You know it's good if it moisturizes well without causing breakouts.

    To answer your question, yes ChocZero is low glycemic and safe for diabetics. I had meant to include that information and have added it. I don't know how they did it, but it has a rich creamy texture and there is absolutely no chalkiness or aftertaste since it doesn't contain any artificial sweeteners. Your sister should try it :D
