I’ve gotten loads of beauty samples over the course of me trying out various beauty products, but it all ended up in piles of trash because what use are those teeny tiny samples? Right? Am I right? Or am I right?
But at the other end of the spectrum, I am a cheapskate, and I always thought there’s always a first for every free products you can get your hands on. So, in the quest of trying out the remaining beauty samples that have not reached its expiry dates, I will be trying it out in random.
This week (oh who am I kidding, this particular sample only last two days, and that is already pushing it) I am trying out the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream that I got for free when I bought Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. Oh and get this, on Kiehl’s USA websites, the product is priced at USD 55 which should be around COP 154k-ish, but when I bought it in real life, it is actually priced at COP 200k-ish. Such a fucking price hike!
Whatever, we’re here for whatever happened to my face after I tried out the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream (or KUFC, because I am so tired of typing the ultra long name, okay?).
I don’t really consider my facial skin to be sensitive, but I’ll get zits here and there close to my period, and/or sometimes when I’m a bit stressed out. But, I’m not about to put random ass product on my face, because let’s get real here, this is my face we’re talking about. I know I’m not Disney Princess pretty, but I’m not about to willingly ruin it. So, the next best thing I can do is to Google some reviews about the said product.
Okay, not a lot of people are giving high praise for this product, but I’m not deterred yet, until I stumble upon someone’s review about this product and, damn, she was harsh. But, she was very thorough about her review; she lists all the problematic ingredients in this product, and let me tell you, I ain’t doing so well in my chemistry class back in high school, but those chemical in the ingredients creep the shit out of me. But did I stop at that? No!
I went to watch another review of this product in YouTube which is more recent than the article one, and, damn, she’s raising the same issues about the whole chemical stuff (one that I remember and I’m most familiar with is paraben).
Shit, should I not try it then?
Ah, fuck it, it’s a small sample, my face will probably be fine, right?
