Last month I was a bit spendy as so many brands/stores had amazing deals. One deal that was just too good to pass up was this SpaceNK GWP. With brands like Diptyque, Omorovicza, Ouai, Sunday Riley, By Terry, Eve Lom, Oribe, and more - I could not say no. I already had two items that I was keen on treating myself to this Fall, and those were the Diptyque Figuier and Diptyque Philosykos Eau de Parfum (yes, they are the same scent in candle and perfume form). I purchased a small Figuier candle last year and it lasted me sooo long. I had found myself missing the candle and scent, as there's something refreshing about the candle that just screams Fall/Winter to me. [Tenneil mentioned she recently got this candle as well and as it's Spring in Australia - this one's a good one for year round use ;)]Needless to say, coupled with this deal I bit the bullet and welcomed this massive roundup of samples into my life. Seriously tho - all the heart eye emojis.
I'm basically in mini product heaven, which is perfect as it's #OctoberSampleChallenge and I'm using up tons of samples already. I'm on a roll and I'll be sure to power through as many of these as I can. I love that SpaceNK provided a little cheat sheet with all the products listed on there. I'll probably do a more in-depth read of the products, their purpose, and their ingredient list (don't want any crazy breakouts / skin freak-outs).
Tbh, these products above are some of the ones I was most definitely excited to try out. I'm powering through the individual packaged shampoos/conditioners that I already have collecting dust before I bust out any of these higher-end ones. Also counting down the days till November as that is when I've decided I'll light the Diptyque Le Redouté candle (it just smells like the holidays).
I'm thinking of doing a purely minis/samples empties round-up as I'm powering through a lot of them lightning fast and it'll be like speed reviewing - a quick 2-3 liner on the product and whether or not they get a thumbs up/down from me. Aka whether or not I would even consider purchasing the full size.
PS - if you've spotted any of your favorites amongst these minis PLEASE let me know so I can go ahead and start working on those first!
PSS It's likely that I'll start giving away a few samples as I've got sooo many already. Those free samples that come with online beauty orders really do add up quite quickly. I'm also nearing 900 followers on Bloglovin' and I'm thinking that I'll do a giveaway once I break 1,000 followers! (Which I'm hoping will be soon-ish / by the holidays!) I loved having an international giveaway back in June and I'm highly considering another one - although budget wise the price of shipping makes me a bit nervous. I may consider doing a giveaway where I can order a product for the winner online from a site (ex: Net-A-Porter, Cult Beauty, etc.) that ships worldwide to some of the larger countries. If any of you know any websites that are great for this please let me know as well! Also, if enough interest arises, I may even consider just doing a mini Instagram giveaway for U.S./Canada readers as that's something that's a bit easier to manage.
I hope you guys have been loving #CHYtober so far, I've really been enjoying putting up these daily posts. I've received so much love / feedback on my last few posts and it really warms my heart! I'm dedicating some time this weekend to take photos / write up posts as last weekend was a bit of a hectic and fun one! Annnnd I may go to Disneyland next weekend *fingers crossed* so I definitely need to get my sh*t together. (Here's hoping my bf reads this and agrees to go :D)
Have a great weekend all!
