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! :)

Fresh Rose Face Mask

Rose Face Mask with Soothing Rose Petals Hydrates & Tones

How about a gel mask that's infused with real rose petals? Each jar supposedly contains two-and-a-half roses! With the addition of cucumber extract, aloe vera, and green tea, no wonder my skin is left soothed, calm, and in fact brightened after each use. I like to leave it on for 10 minutes and only use it a couple times a week. It has a nice rose smell that's very relaxing. One thing I'm not entirely crazy about though is how it tends to sting for a couple minutes on the sides of my nose where the skin is drier. Otherwise, I think it's a very nice mask!

Full-sized purchase? Definitely!

NARS Pro-Prime Light Optimizing Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 15

Pro-Prime Light Optimizing Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 15

This is a primer that will give you a gorgeous luminous glow! The formula has plenty of micro fine shimmers that reflect light so beautifully for an instant brightening effect! It has a lightweight, mousse-like, white texture that spreads well and absorbs quickly. I detect a very faint smell of something floral but it's not overpowering at all. Besides the glow, this primer also extends the wear of my makeup. Despite the high shimmer content, it doesn't seem to make my face look oily or greasy one bit. The added SPF is a welcome bonus!

Full-sized purchase? Sure!

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

Estée Lauder
Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

I've lost count of how many times I have repurchased this serum! I'm already half way down on my jumbo-size bottle and plan to repurchase it again when I run out. It has a super lightweight (and slightly silicone-y) consistency that takes no time to sink in leaving my skin feeling fresh and hydrated instantly. There's no oiliness associated with it. The formula claims to help reduce signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles while improving the texture of skin with continued use and I think that it delivers on all claims!

Full-sized purchase? Yes, many times already!

    Hm, I’ve heard so many great things about the Advanced Night Repair by Estée Lauder. Think I might just finally purchase one after my current face oil is finished. :)

    I’m a big lover of Fresh as you know and their masks are some of my favorites. I like the idea of coming home, taking off my makeup, and putting on a mask for a few hours while I just chill at home. With Fresh, I never have to worry about irritation and my skin ALWAYS looks and feels better afterwards. The won’t undo years of abuse, sun damage, or serious wrinkles but they will do what they claim.

      I wasn’t big on masks when I was in America but now in Thailand, I do it often, probably 4-5 times a week! I love using both regular masks and sheet masks. :) I wish Fresh masks weren’t so pricey, though!

    The Estee Lauder ANR is my STAPLE!! I might stray but I ALWAYS go back to it. It works wonders!

  • Jen says:

    I sampled the Fresh Rose mask a little while back and it really is lovely stuff! Soothing for sure. Glad you enjoyed it!
