Makeup Minis is where I feature deluxe samples I received with my online and/or in-store purchases. I'll give you a short description of the product, my initial impression and whether I plan to purchase a full-sized version. I am only listing 3 items per volume to keep the post short and fun! :)

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask

First Aid Beauty
Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask

I love the creamy feel of this mask! It's very gentle and soothing. There are small “oatmeal” bits in the formula that make for a fun massage session. It contains a blend of oats, botanical antioxidants, and skin-nourishing ingredients that work great to reduce redness and calm the skin. I don't like instant oatmeal for breakfast but I sure like to use this in the morning 3 times a week! It doesn't rinse squeaky clean, though, as it leaves a very moisturizing film on the skin. Not a big deal for me because I like to follow up with a toner.

Full-sized purchase? Definitely!

Dr. Brandt Skincare microdermabrasion skin exfoliant

Dr. Brandt
Skincare microdermabrasion skin exfoliant

Wow, this is one super grainy exfoliator! It's supposed to be an at-home alternative to in-office skin exfoliation procedures. It contains pharmaceutical-grade crystals, lactic acid, and soothing botanicals to polish away dead skin cells which all sounds very good for those who have a lot of acne scars (me included) that they want to get rid of. However, I find the “crystals” in the formula a little too harsh on my skin at the moment even when I use very, very little amount of it. Gotta love the yummy lemony scent, though! :)

Full-sized purchase? Maybe

US$78 | Sephora

Murad Clarifying Cleanser

Clarifying Cleanser

This is a great cleanser to combat acne breakouts! It has 1.5% salicylic acid to penetrate clogged pores and prevent acne, menthol to cool and soothe the skin, and green tea extract to reduce redness with antioxidant benefits. It's gentle and doesn't irritate my acne-prone skin even when I have active blemishes going on. Sometimes I like to mix it with my Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder as my morning cleanser. I love how it lathers so well and has such a nice and pleasant smell. Plus, it leaves my skin feeling so soft and extra clean afterwards!

Full-sized purchase? Don't see why not!

US$28 | Sephora
