Empty #14 (Tester Edition)

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash
This wash gel should use people with normal to oily skin, but I don’t find it very appropriate for people like me, who have normal skin, because it dries it. Otherwise the gel has thicker consistency that foams nicely and it also didn’t do the bad job by cleaning my skin. The scent is herbal-ish. I had cleansing gels from Balea and Yves Rocher and none dried my skin, so I decided to skip the purchase of a full size product.
(Re)purchase: No.

Greenland Fruit Emotions Vanilla Lime hand cream
This is definitely one of the best hand creams I ever tried. It’s light and it sinks into the skin fast, but it moisturizes and nourishes it nicely. Not to mention the scent. It’s not very usual combination, but I really like vanilla and lime scents together.
(Re)purchase: Yes.

Alfa Parf Reparative Shampoo
I was using Alfa Parf shampoo for damaged hair when my ends were so damaged that the only thing that helped them was cutting them off, so I can’t say I notice a huge difference on my hair considering the “reparing” effect, but I did like this shampoo. It cleaned my hair nicely, made them soft and they didn’t become greasy very fast.
(Re)purchase: Maybe. 

Farmona Let's Celebrate Pinacolada and Sweet Secret Chocolate body butters
Two okay body butters that moisturized the skin, although I can’t say I was a huge fan of scents. They were just way to strong for me. I kind of liked Pinacolada, while Sweet Secret Chocolate wasn’t my type of body butter scent.
(Re)purchase: Probably no.

Greenland Fruit Emotions Grapefruit Ginger shower gel
If I like Vanilla Lime scent, Grapefruit Ginger scent stinks to me. It’s a hard word to say, but it’s true. Otherwise this was an okay shower gel that didn’t dry my skin.
(Re)purchase: No.

The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee shower gel
I wrote about The Body Shop products recently. Shower gel was the product I used up first. It’s a nice shower gel that smells nicely and cleans well the skin, leaving it soft and nice smelling.  
(Re)purchase: Probably no. 

Farmona Radical Med Reparing shampoo
Luckily I had two testers of this shampoo, which means I had enough of shampoo to wash my long hair (before I chop them) and to test it properly to write my first impression. I actually liked this shampoo a lot. It cleaned my hair very well, didn’t dry it, it made it soft and nice looking even on a second day after wash, which is good, because this means this shampoo doesn’t make the hair greasy.
(Re)purchase: Maybe.

Farmona Cooling Firming and Anti-cellulite concentrate
This is a gel that sinks fast into the skin, although I have to say I didn’t feel the cooling effect, it gave me more a warm feeling on the skin. One tester was enough for one usage, but after one usage I can’t say if this product works or not, because for that I should test it for a longer time.
(Re)purchase: No.

Farmona Thermoactive Slimming and Anti-cellulite concentrate
Omg, I hate this product. It’s very similar to Cooling Firming concentrate, with the difference that this is a thick cream with warming effect. It takes more time to sink into the skin than Cooling Firming and the feeling that it leaves on the skin is horrible. I felt like something is burning my skin on places on which I applied it. And that feeling lasted for quite a long time. So if you’re thinking about trying Farmona’s anti-celulite product, avoid this one and get Cooling Firming concentrate.
(Re)purchase: Hell no. 

Afrodita Natural Care Aloe Vera mask and peeling
This is a two in one product. The peeling is very nice, it’s very gentle, but it works great. My skin was soft and it didn’t irritate it. The mask was also okay, although I should avoid using it right after peeling, because it burned a bit around my nose. Otherwise my skin felt great after I washed it, it was nourished and smooth.
(Re)purchase: Yes.

Montagne Jeunesse Erdbeer maske
This was an okay mask, it felt refreshing on the skin and it didn’t irritate it, but it made it soft after the usage, although I can’t say it made it moisturized. What I didn’t like about it is very strong artificial strawberry scent.
(Re)purchase: Maybe.

Vichy Nutrilogie 2 Intense Cream for very dry skin
I received this tester with my Vichy prize previous month and I had to try it first, although my skin isn’t anymore as dry as it was during winter. It moisturizes the skin very well, but that’s all I can say about it, since I used it only twice. But it made a good first impression and I think it would be perfect for winter season.
(Re)purchase: Maybe.

Clarins Orchid Treatment
I was preparing myself to write a review about this product many times and I even had few words written, but in the end I decided not to publish the review. Clarins Orchid Treatment is much hyped product and it seems like everybody loves it, but I have to admit I didn’t notice any difference on my skin when I was using it. The problem I had with it is that it took ages before this oil sink into my skin. I was usually using it alone, because it took about 40 minutes before it completely sank into my skin and because I was using it before bed time I didn’t wait that long to apply my face cream (I usually went to sleep, because I had to wake up early in the morning for work). The second thing I didn’t really like is the scent. The scent actually reminds me on men’s after shave lotion and I always had a feeling like I put my father’s after shave lotion on my face when I was using this product. But the scent is personal preference and some might like it. I’m not saying that this is a bad product, because it worked for many people, but I personally didn’t notice any difference on my skin, so I would not purchase a full size product.
(Re)purchase: No. 

Farmona Bamboo&Oils Repairing mask and Strengthening shampoo
I had one tester of shampoo and one of mask and I used up both while I still had long hair. Of course, there wasn’t enough shampoo for the whole surface of my hair, so I can’t say much about it, but the mask didn’t impress me. It didn’t make my hair as soft and smooth as it says on the packaging that it should.
(Re)purchase: No.

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque
This is a product that made a huge impression on me. It’s a thick mask that worked amazingly on my hair. My hair was as soft and smooth as never before. I couldn’t believe how nice my hair was after the usage. I’m seriously thinking about purchasing a full size mask, although I really don’t like buying very expensive products for hair.
(Re)purchase: Maybe.

Lee Stafford Arganoil from Marocco Nurishing Miracle Oil
I got 5 ml tester which was enough for few usages. It smelled really nicely, it made my hair soft and not greasy. I was using it on wet hair, like all other oils.
(Re)purchase: Maybe. 

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think about them? Thank you for reading!

  1. Uau to je pa veliko testerjev :) Ampak meni so te vrečkice za testerje tako smotane za uporabljat :/

    1. Boljše, da niti ne veš, koliko me jih še čaka. :D Niso najbolj fajn, I agree, je pa včasih dobro kaj potestirati, preden kupiš full size. :D

  2. Obožujem maske za lase in me tale resno mika, drugače sem zaprisežena Lee Stafford maski za rast las ali nekaj podobnega :D
    Farmona čokoladno maslo je meni všeč po teksturi ampak mi je vonj res presladek, čeprav sem bila prepričana, da mi bo všeč :/
    Alfa Parf sem imela isto verzijo, porabila sem celo stekleničko ob enkratnem pranju...ful se je lepo spenil in vse ampak me je še isti dan tako noro začelo srbet lasišče, da je bilo prav neznosno :S
