So being a woman with no will power I get a lot of samples from a little too much spending. Most of those samples are used up quickly, passed along to my mother and never remembered. However, there will be the occasion where I will try a product and be pretty much blown away that I have to go out and purchase it! These are a few which have travelled from being a sample to a purchase!

Le Volume De Chanel Mascara (£24)
When I bought the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua I received a mini of the Volume De Chanel and loved the thickness it gave to my eyelashes. My lashes were left with a very thick, clumpy rocker-chic eyelashes without looking messy! An achievement which usually takes a LOT of hard work however this mascara takes the "hard" and "work" out of "hard work, sexy lashes"!

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector (£17) 
I received a mini of this within a Clarins set and after a lot of the hype online wanted to try it out. I do love the formulation, I must admit that it isn't particularly long lasting however it leaves that irresistible just-bitten wet lip look without any stickiness! I love this on its own or layered on top of lipstick. I purchased shade 002 as I have the mini of 001 and wanted to try out a different colour. This is expensive for a glossy lip-balm and we will see whether I will re-purchase however I am very much enjoying my full-size purchase! :)

Origins Checks and Balance Frothy Face Wash  (£18)
Most online Origins orders come with free goodies! One of those was the Origins Checks and Balance Frothy Face Wash which I adore!!! I love this as it is quite refreshing and minty but is also best friends with a Clarisonic (my favourite duo!). I adore Origins as a brand so this cleanser is just the easiest way to get clean, fresh skin without it feeling stripped or sensitive! It is incredibly frothy so works perfectly with the afore mentioned Clarisonic and is the best cleanser-clarisonic pairing I have ever found!

Have you received a sample then purchased the full-size version?
