Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

I know youโ€™ve tried a sample (or ten) of something and it was so magical it made you stop everything and buy a product cause it was love at first sample!  What was it and did the full sized version live up to your initial heart-melted impression? Or is it still on your shopping list to pick up at your earliest convenience?  

The first time I can recall this happening to me was when Sephora still carried Dermadoctor.  I had a sample of their KP Duty Body Scrub.  I used it just to push it through my stash and was absolutely blown away by how immediately soft and exfoliated my skin was!  Instant purchase!   Itโ€™s been six years and I have yet to find any body scrub that compares -and Iโ€™ve tried!

 

A more recent love-at-first-sample is the Dior Backstage Face and Body Primer!  Itโ€™s a slightly peach tinted,creamy gel consistency and is mega hydrating while blurring subtle imperfections on its own but making foundation apply so smoothly!!!  Plus it has a beautiful floral fragrance which may not be everyoneโ€™s cup of tea but itโ€™s very pleasing to me. ๐Ÿ™‚  

Dior BACKSTAGE Face & Body Primer 1.6 oz/ 50 mL

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

@lmaster I never thought I'd be a hair oil girlie but wow, they can make SUCH a difference!  This one hadn't been on my radar but now you have me curious ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

I would strongly recommend trying a sample before purchasing because the scent could be too strong for some people, however, that's one of the qualities I love about it @CookieGirl1 

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

@lmaster I usually love strongly scented hair products but that being said, can you describe the scent?  I wish that more stores actually carried the line.

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Ok I used it yesterday, it seems like the scent is the strongest the first couple uses, then it tones down. @CookieGirl1 @Loretta55 it's like a sweet perfume scent, a good one though

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

@lmaster is it very heavy or lighter?  Can you compare it to any other oils?  

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

When it comes out it seems like the same consistency of a hair oil, but when I apply it, it's very light weight, more like a serum @CookieGirl1 

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Do you blow dry your hair or do you let it air dry @lmaster? Your review has me curious about the product. When I air dry my hair it can take up to 10 hours to completely dry. Also can you please describe the scent.

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

@Loretta55 I rarely blow dry my hair, usually I'll wrap my hair in a microfiber towel and scrunch it ever 30 min or so. It's a strong sweet perfume scent

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

You scrunch your hair for 30 minutes @lmaster? Wow my hands hurt just thinking about it.

Re: Love At First Sample!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ

No lol I scrunch it for a few seconds every 30 minutes or so @Loretta55
