Starting with two Cartier perfume samples that I did not like at all. In my opinion Declaration smelled like a stuffy old lady and Baiser Vole smelled like a stuffy old lady's attic. Two different scents, same general theme.
I went through a couple of the samples that gin sent. This "aqua drop pack" is like a nighttime moisturizer that... is almost exactly what it says. Very watery, but absorbed pretty quickly and did moisturize.
Finally! Julep's Mighty Nail & Cuticle serum. I've never had problems with my cuticles, and from my previous (continuous) usage it didn't do anything for the staining (as far as trying to grow it out), but it does seem to have helped with growing out my ridges. My nails are still ridgy, but far less so. Could be this, could be the buffing, could be both. Who knows?
I'll be honest... I don't even remember using this. lol I swear next month I'll take notes.
This I do remember. It was a bit thinner than I expected, but foamed up really nicely so it at least felt like it was deep cleaning.
The "olive oil cream". Was about what it says as well. Like a cream moisturizer with olive oil in it. Smelled like olive oil, but didn't feel greasy or anything on my skin.
OMG Actual make-up! I love this! Pressed powder that does, in fact, "cover all". Gave me a very even, matte finish without foundation. Once I finish up my other pressed powders I will very likely purchase this again... assuming it's still available.
Lastly, Lancome's Hypnose Star mascara. Hated this, too. It was so thick and heavy that I could feel it pulling my lashes down; making me feel sleepy. I love free samples (this was a Sephora birthday freebie), but I will not ever buy this. My current essence mascara looks far more natural without weighing down my lids.
So, there we have it. I won't have a true update until tomorrow, but as of last week I've lost a total of 12lbs!! Eight in April and four for May isn't stellar, but progress is progress and I'm sticking with it. Welp, time to pee and throw some clothes on. See you next month! (^_^)"/"
