I keep all the samples I’ve collected in this plastic CD case I got at the dollar store. As you can see, it is quite a lot of samples. One of my goals for this year is to use up all of my samples because I often just end up throwing them away (what a waste!)
I recently ran out of my toner and moisturizer so I figured I might as well work my way through my sample collection. I can save some money too! To take inventory of what samples I have, I’ve organized them by type:
Cleansing Foams (There’s not that many but I do have a lot of my full size ones left)
MISC. Treatments (Masks, Peels etc.)
After using a sample I’m going to post a little mini review of it. So for this first week (or however long this lasts me) I’m going to be trying out the Origins GinZing moisturizer.
I put these packet samples in this old sample moisturizer jar from etude house. It help me remember it’s a moisturizer and prevents it from drying out (which is what happens if I just leave it in the packet. I open the packet halfway and squeeze it into the mini jar. Then I use a plastic spatula to try and get anything left out. I also use my finger to get whatever is left in the packet and use it as hand cream. This is the Asian side of me screaming “DON’T WASTE ANYTHING”
You get this neat little jar of moisturizer :) You can also use an old contact lens case, just remember to clean it out well and maybe even sanitize it with alcohol and let it air dry.
Look forward to my next sample post on how I liked the Origins GinZing!
How do you use up your samples?
