tiny tubes and tubs
Nearly every other week I wander department stores and Sephora, hoping employees don't recognize me, and hustling as many samples out of them as I possibly can. I'm beauty and makeup obsessed and sampling is the only way I can treat myself to the products I covet (and know I deserve). Here you'll find reviews of those products, photos I take as inspiration, articles I learn from, and general ramblings of a yearning materialist.
Ya’ll, this is ridiculously expensive. I mean- REALLY, SUPER EXPENSIVE. So when I got a 0.14 fl oz sample from Sephora and then realized that I pretty much had a tiny packet full of gold, I knew I wanted to stretch it as far as it could possibly go. Is any exfoliant really worth ~$45/oz?
Based on about 6 uses (yeah, I got 6 uses out of 0.14 oz) I’d say… meh. When I got my Clarisonic I really thought I would never have to exfoliate again, but then all these skin care and make-up ladies started telling me just how wrong I was. You still gotta exfoliate. But apparently my skin is in good enough shape that ExfoliKate didn’t, like, change my life. Did it “work”? Of course. Duh. Did it smell nice? Feel good? Yes. But $45/oz good? Probably not. 
So… meh.
