I've got some interesting & exciting mail coming in the next week or so. Who doesn't love getting fun things in the mail? The first parcel I was expecting just arrived from Paula's Choice.
It occurred to me recently that I often talk about how much I love Paula Begoun and rely on her research & reviews from Beautypedia and CosmeticCops. If that's the case, why haven't I tried any of her skincare or makeup line? I went on Paulaschoice.com & started doing some research, when I discovered that she sells samples of her skin care so that you can try before you buy full size. Love that! So I ordered...a ton, just look at this stack.
The sample packages are typically not big enough to get a true idea about a product, at least for me. So I decided to order 2 of everything, just to give it a decent try. I bought these little jars pictured below, where I can transfer these into. Just so I'm not fussing about with the sample package, that drives me nuts.
In total I have 34 samples which cost me $24.10CDN with taxes, & included 3 free samples. I wasn't charged anything for shipping, which I didn't expect, so even better. I placed my order late night on April 2nd & received it on April 11th, along with emails that confirmed my order & gave me shipping information & tracking details. Very happy with that!
I plan to test these one line at a time to keep things straight, and then post my thoughts. It would be tough to do a real thorough review, given the size of the samples, but I can definitely tell you my initial impressions. First up, the CLEAR line which is meant to be her skin care line to help with acne. My skin has been a bit fussy lately so I am eager to try this. I'll keep you all posted.
Have any of you tried any of Paula Begoun's line? What are your thoughts?
