Sample Sunday in Boots!

Being skint is the worst, isn't it? No money to go out and enjoy the shops? Wrong! 

This week i headed to Boots beauty counters to see what tips for summer I could get, samples were up for grabs, and here's what i got! 

So, i'll do a little break down. 
Also, just to point out that I did not spend a penny! 

Diorshow mascara 4ml 
This was a sample given with a coupon through the post from Boots the day before. It is a relaunch of Dior's favourote mascara! I haven't tried Dior make up or anything by them before, so I am excited to see how this is. But by the looks of the wand, it will be an excellent everyday mascara and really a good size to carry around!

Elizabeth Arden Sun Defence cream
This was meant to be a free Sun Defence  stick for being a Red subscriber, but they had run out and so made up a sample pot of this. I am waiting to try it out on my holidays this month :) 

Benefit Instant Comeback serum 5ml
This month at Boots Benefit counters take along empty skincare, to swap for a Benefit mini skincare. 3 to choose; Instant Comeback Serum, It's Potent eye cream or Triple Performing lotion! Offer runs; 30th May to 27th June/ while stocks last! More information on that here: Free Benefit skincare offer

Estee Lauder Double Wear 4ml
Pop along to any Estee Lauder counter this month, to get colour matched for 1 of their 3 Double Wear foundations and recieve a free 10 day sample! 
I went for the light version with shade 01 as will definitely be buying one of their foundations at the airport this month! 
I have tried this out now, and it is a good light feel for my work look, but I think I will enjoy the Double Wear full coverage one a lot more and will add that one to my airport buys list!

Benefit License To Blot £15.50
New from Benefit, so i'll do a review on this later this week!
I got this with my Boots points! I had £28.57 so thought I might as well get this with those :) 

So, an excellent Sunday afternoon at the beauty counters. 
There is always lots to try out, you can get a make over or facial and enjoy browsing the products, all for free!
Sundays I always prefer, as it is so much quieter than Saturdays! :) 


  1. Giiirl, you did good! I love a good sample haul myself.
    I'm a long time wearer of the normal EL Double Wear but picked up a sample of the DW Light last week and 2 samples of benefit foundations. So handy as I'm going away for the weekend so don't need to pack my glass bottle...WHOOP.

    Would love to read more on that License to Blot.
