Do you have a huge stash of product samples? I always have a bunch on hand. Here I’ll tell you which to buy, and which to say buh-bye to.
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30
Ugh, what happened here? I received this in St. Moritz, a supposedly neutral medium. I can’t even tell you if this is any good because I had to remove it right away – it’s soooo orange.
THE VERDICT: Pass.
Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Lightweight Cream
This formula is a gel-like cream, feels instantly refreshing, and smells like spa heaven (aka lavender).
THE VERDICT: Would buy, like, yesterday.
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intense Exfoliating Treatment
The package is a lie, because it’s all orange and cheery, but the product itself is slime green. It worked really well, but it wasn’t a miracle considering this brand’s price point.
THE VERDICT: Sure, if you’ve got the dough.
