Because why not?

Saturday Sample.

12 July 2013
Welcome to Saturday Sample! I really wanted to be able to post quick and easy reviews on the weekend but I work and finding the time can be so difficult so I figured I could do quick sample reviews. Generally these will be like a first impression post as most samples aren't large enough to get a proper idea of what the product can actually do, but occasionally they are just the right size to fall in love or decide that they are oh so wrong.

Today I'll be looking at Molton Brown's Moisture Lock 24hr Replenisher.

I received this in a flight pack, the ones that you get from business and first class, it was full of a bunch of things, none of which were actually used on the flight.. If I'd known of the little miracle it contained I would have been able to stock up while I was away.

I've been using this 7ml tube for a little over 2 weeks and it's just run out sadly. The very first time I used it I was worried, it didn't seem to be absorbing as quickly as I liked and I was in a pinch because I had no other face moisturiser in the house (I have no idea how this happened), I didn't want to overload my already oily skin but to my surprise after about a minute it had completely absorbed and my skin felt lovely and soft.

The next morning I was brushing my teeth and I noticed I didn't have the usual oil slick that I tend to produce over night, I looked a little closer and the freakin' pores on my cheeks near my nose had shrunk! Seriously I had been battling these damn things for so long, nothing ever worked and all it had taken was a tiny sample of a moisturiser that is produced mainly for in flight care kits to fix my face!

How was I going to get more of this?? Fly business class every couple of weeks to keep up my supply? I wish. I researched the product and from what I can tell they use to make large tubes of this but everywhere is sold out except a few I found on Amazon so I'm assuming these are discontinued but they must still produce them for airline travel kits because you can buy the sample tubes in bulk on ebay! ha!

So I have come to terms that this is the end of the road for Moisture Lock and Me but it was so wonderful while it lasted, it was like a very short lived summer romance.. during winter.

Oh well, time to start looking for a new HG moisturiser.

Do you often find products you love via samples or do they end up in a box never to see the light of day again?
