Skincare Mini Loves

by Joyce in


I seem to be overflowing with deluxe samples (#storyofmylife) and I've been trying to use as many as possible these last few months. Skincare, haircare, makeup, you name it. I'm going to use up all those darn minis! 

In any event, I really wanted to share a few that I've been loving lately. I suspect a few of them will even make it to the repurchases pile!

Boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil, $46 for 1.7 oz
I've never paid much attention to Boscia, but I'm really appreciating the quality of their products and affordable price point. I love how this oil keeps my skin feeling hydrated despite the cold weather we've had this winter. It is lightly scented and absorbs super quickly so I can layer it with moisturizer or makeup. I've been eyeing their Cleansing Oil-Gel from the same line - have you tried it? 

African Botanics Neroli Infused Marula Oil*, $85 for 2 oz
I love neroli, and I've been dying to get my hands on this ever since I slathered some of this on at Space NK last May. I find this to be even more hydrating on my skin than the regular version, which I've seriously been obsessed with all winter. It is meant to hydrate, combat redness, and protect against the elements, and I really feel like it has done just that! 

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid, $39 for 5oz
I have mixed feelings about this product - while I love the light, liquidy texture and over feel of the product, I'm not so sure it works for me. I have been experiencing very minor rash-like reactions to something, and I suspect it is this but can't say for certain. Who knows, it could just be the weather or something else all together. In any event, this "liquid" is quite an affordable serum that definitely helps with hydration. 

I am definitely considering purchasing both the Bosica Tsubaki Oil and African Botanics Neroli Oil - but, I will be restrained and wait till I've emptied more products. I won't be purchasing Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid (or the accompanying Ceramidin Cream that I don't have much to say about), but that is really because I am testing out a similar product from Asian brand Hada Labo that I like better! 

All in all, I'm pretty happy with how these products turned out. Have you tried any great samples or minis lately? I'd love to know! :)
