Since I’ve become a housewife, couponning for beauty products is my jam. It’s what I do to relax. I stack promo codes, gift with purchases, and special shopping events. I love deluxe samples because they are super adorable miniatures versions of the full size products.
It’s really tough being a mom. I like to buy little beauty treats for myself each month so that I can feel pampered and pretty. Sometimes I buy something I’ve been coveting, and other times I like to try something new. This month I spent $4.50 to sample some new things (value is based on sample weight and full size weight + price):
PURCHASE: Aveda ‘shampure™’ Shampoo
Gift w/ Purchase Aveda Botanical Hydrating Lotion 0.24 oz value $1.58, full size 5 oz $33
La Mer ‘The Lifting Contour’ Serum Sample 0.1 oz value $29, full size 1 oz $290
I have not yet tried La Mer because I always felt like it is something I would get when I am older. I am interested in the scent, texture, and compatibility with my skin.
Tom Ford Lip Color Sample in Casablanca 0.03 oz value $12, full size 0.12 oz $48
I love trying all lipsticks, glosses, balms, etc.! I also, love tiny versions of things, so cute!
Dolce&Gabbana Beauty ‘Dolce’ Eau de Parfum Spray Sample 0.06 oz value $3.38, full size 1.6 oz $90
I’m a sucker for packaging and I love the full size’s bottle. So I’m curious to see if I like the scent.
I feel like this was a very good value because I will actually get to try things that I might buy. I am a new mom, and I feel like everything about my skin has changed. I used to have oily skin, now it is dry. I’m on the hunt for moisturizing products, and little beauty treats to help me feel pretty while I’m loosing my baby weight. I wound up spending $4.50 total, so I won’t feel bad if I don’t like anything.
