Review: Artistry Essentials Samples2:06 PM
My bf gave me these to try. He recently started his IBO thing which is the business project I was referring to if you follow my personal blog. If any of my followers would like to learn more about it, I can give you my bf's contact information which he can tell you more about it. Anyways, when he started it, they gave him a box of samples of lots of different things. He got some skin care stuff and didn't know what to do with it so he gave them to me. These are the things he gave me:
- ARTISTRY sample packet
I will be reviewing the ARTISTRY essentials hydrating products since I have normal to dry skin.
You basically get a cleanser, toner, and a moisturizer. They also included samples of the eye creme. I used these products last week and I think they are pretty good products. I've only used 2 of each sample since that's all the hydrating ones in the packet. So this review will only be based on those two days I used them. The other samples I'm going to give it to my sister to try since she has combination skin. She haven't used them yet so if she doesn't, if my followers are interested, I might send it to them to try. I'll make a post later on if my sister doesn't use them.
ARTISTRY essentials hydrating toner: This toner was a clear/gray/white color. It's hard to describe. It felt a bit oily, but there was little to no smell. Again, I didn't smell any chemicals. The sample packet gave a lot of toner so I didn't use all of it. I used my hands when I applied it since I didn't have anymore cotton pads. After I applied it, I fanned my face with my hands so the toner will soak in my skin more.
ARTISTRY essentials hydrating lotion: The lotion/moisturizer was almost the same consistency as the cleanser. I think it was a bit lighter, and the smell was nice, too. Also, the sample gave more product than I needed so I didn't use the whole thing.
ARTISTRY essentials replenishing eye creme: They gave me A LOT of product in the sample even though the sample was smaller than the others. The consistency was similar to the cleanser and lotion/moisturizer. No chemical smells also.
The next morning when I woke up, my face felt so nice~. It was not "greasy" like how it was when I went to bed. It was really smooth and felt really hydrated. It definitely did what it said it would do. I couldn't stop touching my face because it felt so firm and bouncy LOL. My bf couldn't stop touching my face because it felt so smooth XD.
I only used one packet of the eye creme because I was too lazy to use it the second time I used the other three products. I'm not really sure how eye cremes are supposed to work, but I felt like it made the areas around my eyes brighter? My bf pointed out that my dark circles were less dark when he saw me. I'm not sure if it's because of the eye creme or because I had sufficient amount of sleep. I still need to use it more to find out.
- ARTISTRY Time Defiance Mosturizer
I've been using this moisturizer/lotion for my face for the past week. I like it. It replaced my Aveeno Daily Moisturizer. I only need 1 - 1.5 pump of it for my face and neck. It's a clear, white color and it smells nice. I think it smells almost like cucumbers. It doesn't feel greasy when I applied it to my face and neck. It feels like I'm not even wearing it at all. I use this product twice a day - once when I get up in the morning and once when I'm about to go to bed. However, I didn't use it when I used the ARTISTRY essentials hydrating lotion because both are lotions/moisturizer ahaha. Since I usually use the hydrating lotion at night, I use the Time Defiance one in the morning.
After using the Time Defiance one, my face have gotten smoother and firmer :D. I think I might ask my bf to get me this moisturizer after I'm done with the sample ^^.
[Disclaimer]: I wasn't paid to blog about this. These are my honest opinions that I thought I would share with my followers. To be honest, I was actually reluctant to try these samples because I never heard of the brand, but on the sample packet it said that the products were made with natural ingredients and on the back it listed all of the ingredients that were in the product so I decided to give them a try. I'm glad I did because my skin does feel really nice ^^.
