I just love to get stuff in the mail that isn't bills. I don't do a lot of shopping online, so I was pleasantly surprised a few days ago when this sample set arrived in my mailbox. I had taken a survey online a while back on target.com in order to have this sent to me. Here's what's in the kit:
- Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in "Hot Pink"
- Fekkai Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner
- Pantene Color Preserve Shine Shampoo
- Nivea Express Hydration Daily Lotion
- Neutrogena naturals Lip Balm
- a really cute Sonia Kashuk makeup bag
So far, the only thing I've tried is the Neutrogena lip balm and the Nivea lotion. The lip balm is a little greasy, but I actually like it a lot. It is somewhat reminiscent of Burt's Bees, without the minty flavor. Burt's Bees, by the way, is my Holy Grail lip balm. I have a couple of tubes in use at all times. I like that it's a natural product, plus I really do love the flavor.
The Nivea Express Hydration Daily Lotion is probably fine, as far as lotions go. I have extremely dry skin, and have patches of eczema on my hands and legs. It takes a lot for a lotion to really "WOW" me, and this one is just average to me.
One other thing that came in the beauty kit was a huge pack of coupons. According to the label, there are $25 worth of savings included. Everything from hair color to shampoo to cosmetics is included. I'm looking forward to trying some new products with the coupons inside.
What new cosmetics have you tried recently? Do you have any old favorites I should try? I'm always open to suggestions - please share!
