Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, by the time I realised I didn’t have a post to put up I had to leave for work. I had a long day yesterday but I have the weekend off, today has been spent mostly at home but I did have a meeting with the bank and picked up some goodies in town. Superdrug’s B. range is being rebranded so they are selling all their stock really cheap. There wasn’t much selection in my store but they also have the online shop so if you are looking for a good deal I suggest you have a look.
Today’s review is of samples I received from Naturisimo, both from Kimberly Sayer.
I received two samples from this brand, the ultra light facial moisturiser and the light night cream. I’m not sure about the brand’s entire range but these two products are vegan and are not tested on animals. Their description states that they are vegan, mostly organic and free from parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, suflates, nano-technology, and artificial fragrances and colours. I also emailed them a query as one sample had different ingredients to their online description but they assured me that they have swapped out the beeswax in their original formula for a vegetable based wax, which is a great step forward. They were also really quick to get back to be, a great bonus.
Kimberly Sayer is made in the USA, certified organic and is non-GMP and chemical free which sounds great and I did review their cleansing lotion a while ago, I wasn’t too impressed but I decided to give them another go.
The ultra light facial moisturiser is SPF 30, so it provides some sun protection should you want to wear it outside by itself, or under makeup. I don’t particularly like wearing moisturiser under makeup as I find that mine has a tendency to travel when I do. It’s supposed to absorb easily and not cause clogged pores or breakouts. It also contains lemon oil which is supposed to detoxify, minimise oily skin and dry up spots. I have seen a few people comment that if you use lemon oil in the sun it can cause damage to your skin but I haven’t noticed any changes. The formula is non greasy and apparently ideal for oily or acne prone skin.
This cream smelt floral and was quite thick. It took a bit of rubbing in to absorb, a little like a suncream. The packet contained enough product for two applications. Afterwards my skin was very soft with just the slightest hint of stickiness, although I didn’t get the stickiness on my second application. I just found this cream to keep my skin super smooth and I really liked it. I paid 50p for the 1.5ml sample and the full sized product is £26.5o for 120ml, which like all the other samples I’ve tried is a bit out of my price range but it’s still nice to try samples of these products.
