#365 Days of Samples: Vol. 22

Time to get back to my #365 Days of Samples series, where I randomly select from my overflowing sample box 7-10 items to use up in the next few weeks. I learned about this series from Elle S on YouTube, and find that it's a great way to steadily work through all those foil and deluxe samples I've accumulated. 
Items included in this go-around::

  1. Green Tea Milk Wash Cream Cleanser by Farmhouse Fresh (foil)
  2. Face Wash Powder by DHC (foil)
  3. Daily Exfoliating Towelette by Blum Naturals (1 towelette)
  4. Si Eau de Parfume by Giorgio Armani Beauty (spray vial)
  5. Prep-n-Glow Cleanse+Exfoliate+Hydrate by Nuface (1 towelette)
  6. Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer by Ole Henriksen (deluxe sample)
  7. Sweet Cream Body Milk by Farmhouse Fresh (foil)
  8. Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter for Body by Farmhouse Fresh (foil)
  9. Marula Oil by John Paul Selects (vial)
  10. Coconut Milk and Honey Nourishing Exotic Oil by Pure Fiji (deluxe sample)

I do want to update you on a few of the items from previous volumes, as I either decluttered or used them up:
  • L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (deluxe sample): finished, mainly by using it at night before bed time.  Not something I would purchase, as I have other hand creams I like better.
  • fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy Boosting Face Mask (foil sample):  I liked this!  It is supposed to boost the vibrancy of skin with it's proprietary vitamin fruit complex of vitamins, citrus fruit extracts, and minerals.  One use was not enough to see results and the $62 a jar price tag will keep me from purchasing, but I enjoyed the sample!
  • Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave In Conditioner (foil sample):  Did a good job of detangling and smoothing my hair.  I've got an abundance of these foil samples so am in no hurry to purchase.
  • boscia Purifying White Charcoal Mattifying Treatment Primer (deluxe sample):  still working on this one.
  • DHC Facial Scrub (foil sample):  a micro-bead free gentle facial scrub that uses apricot seeds.  It was nice, but not especially memorable.
  • Double Take Baked Powder Foundation by Laura Geller (deluxe sample): I used to love this stuff, but find it looks too powdery/cakey on my skin now.  Ah, the joys of aging skin.
  • bareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion Serum (deluxe sample):  a nice serum, but I'm swimming in serums/skincare at the moment.
  • Japonesque Pro Performance Makeup Wipes (foil, 1 wipe): got the job done, but not something I feel compelled to seek out.
  • Sonoma Scent Studio's Fig Tree (vial sample):  not my favorite of the Sonoma Scent Studio samples I acquired a while back, but not an offensive fragrance either.  Just not for me.
  • Ulta Beauty Mattifying Balm (deluxe sample):  Threw it out after a few tries, never going to use it.
