A Box of Benefit


I saw a post on Hayley's blog (here) and it was one of those moments where you read a post, think 'oh dear lord I need me that' and go straight to the website and purchase the product. (Ahhh the power of advertising.)


At the moment there is a deal on ASOS, where if you buy either Hoola or That Gal, you get two free samples with it. I went for the Hoola box, mainly for the Watts up because I wanted to try it so much. Also I loved the Hoola sample I got, and would've bought a full version anyway, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. (That is my story, and I'm sticking with it!!!)


As you can see, the samples are quite small, but still you can't grumble really.

For a review on Hoola, check here, I love this bronzer, not orange and gorgeous contour and all over bronze look.


So I don't know if I like this 'stain' idea. On my lips I placed it on top of carmex, mainly 'cause my lips are really dry at the moment and I didn't want it to cling. On my cheeks, especially in this picture, it looks like a rash on my cheek haha! It doesn't look that bad in real life, but I think I'll be sticking to powder blushes.


This product is kind of why I bought the box, silly I know, but I was really torn between getting this highlighter and the Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow in Ice Gold. I do really like this product, it gives a nice subtle glow, and I love the creamy formulation, however I think it's a bit too warm toned for me, which is fine for summer, but I think when it runs out, or when I get enough money to justify the Jemma Kidd, then I'll get that one! But I have nothing against this highlighter.



You can get this box, here!

What do you think, do you get things just for samples too, or am I completely crazy?

  7. I always buy things to get things free haha, you're not alone :)
    I like that colour on your lips, but I would feel weird putting it on my cheeks too, in my mind they're two very separate and different things haha. I think it looks nice on though, as does your finished face at the end! :)
    Xxxx
