The Foil and Feedback thread!

Ever really loved a foil and wanted to scream your love from the rooftops?  Yes!?!

Ever really got on the hype train from a sample, but forgot who asked you for feedback?  Maybe?  Just want to rave about a sample you finally opened? Yes!


Post your experiences with your samples... Whether you actually scored all the ones you requested, or upgraded from foil to full sized.


Also, peruse other threads related to foils:

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

I was inspired to organize all of my foils to start the New Year more organized!


Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

@Mellmars1185 good job!!

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

Thank you! @lmaster 

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

I realized that I need to add my latest find. I received a sample of Youth To The People Mini Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 mL . My skin is plump and glowing after using this. The packet lasted my 3 applications and I immediately ordered the full sized version. I was not looking for an overnight mask but this product really convinced me.

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

@Loretta55 this is one of my favorite masks!!

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

Tried the perfume sample BURBERRY Her Eau de Parfum and instantly bought the set with the travel spray!!! It does remind me of the PATRICK TA Mini Major Glow Body Oil or the BBW scent under the stars I think it's the name,  I love it!!

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

September foils:


A few new loves here, including the Topicals Like Butter Mask for Dry, Sensitive & Eczema-Prone Skin 1.7 oz/ 50 mL, Summer Fridays CC Me Vitamin C Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL and the Edible Beauty Purifying Mask.
LANEIGE Water Bank Hydro Gel 1.6 oz/ 50 mL is a repeat and it works well for my normal-right-now skin. The AERIN Rose De Grasse has a fresh rose scent; it is very springy. Everything else was ok. My foundation pilled over the Caudalie Vinosource-Hydra Grape Water Gel Moisturizer 1.6 oz/ 50 mL, but other than that, it was ok. The Darphin Intralskin Eye Cream is rich and absorbs somewhat easily, making it best for evening.

@ather this is my start to the 30 by the end of the year challenge 🙂 18 (I did not count the JM Lavender and Silver Birch as it was just a peel back foil).

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

Love this thread so much @danielledanielle😊 


Technically not "foils" but recently I've been trying out perfume samples I had stashed away: Maison Margiela ’REPLICA’ Beach Walk and Maison Margiela 'REPLICA' Coffee Break Eau de Toilette 3.4 oz/ 100 mL Eau de Toilette Spray. I'm liking both! Does anyone have any other Maison Margiela fragrances they love and would recommend? 

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

Heh @GeorginaBT , samples and even deluxe sizes are welcome!  (I just like the alliteration of feedback and foil.)


From the same line, I like Maison Margiela REPLICA' Mini Spray Set - Jazz Club, Whispers In The Library, By The Fireplace .  Fireplace is, smoky, then it turns into a nice lighter scent. I love each one.

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

Knew I could count on you @danielledanielle @lmaster 🤗 Thanks for the recs! Fireplace does sound like a warm and cozy scent. Will have to give it a whiff during my next store visit! 

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

GUERLAIN L'Or 24K Gold Radiance Primer 


Tried this a few weeks back, did not care for it.  It's pretty to look at, but pretty watery in its consistency.  Also tried it with a Givenchy foundation sample, neither one wowed me.

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

I LOVE this thread , @danielledanielle!! 


I had a number of foils of the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Pore Perfecting Moisturizer 2 oz/ 60 mL but I had been waiting to try until I finished a serum with surprise AHAs (my nemesis). I hate the smell on these, it's like marine? Plus my skin was iffy so I just gave up on using more AHAs on my face. After using one foil on my face, I've started using the rest on my partner's back and that's a much better use. 

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

No one likes a nemesis, let alone a surprise nemesis @haleyvvvv 


And, clever usage of the foils for your partner's back 

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

I think that I just found my HG foundation thanks to a deluxe sample from a recent order. I received Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Longwear Foundation in   3 Cool. It really gives me good coverage and the match is perfect. Once I get through my foundations I will definitely be placing an order.

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!


All the curly hair beauties!!! This product is fabulous!!! It defines beautifully and eliminates frizz ♥️

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

@lmaster thank you for this! I need to define my naturally wavy hair, and have yet to start the journey. This will be on my list.

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

@eshoe I get so excited when I find a product that goes above and beyond my expectations!! 

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

Thank you very much for the recommendation @lmaster

Re: The Foil and Feedback thread!

No problem!! @Loretta55 I'm so glad I received two of these samples 😆
