I've heard a few bloggers talking about Pai skincare before, especially during the #bbloggers chats on twitter, but I'd always thought they were a bit expensive considering you can't try before you buy if you're ordering online. Then I saw a post on Annabel's blog about the samples you can buy.
Turns out you can try before you buy! They sell a pack of 6 samples for £5 with free delivery and a free muslin cloth. I think that's a pretty good price! One thing about this is that the majority of the samples are moisturisers, I'd rather see less moisturisers and a wider range of products, maybe an eye cream?
Macadmaia & rose, avocado & jojoba and chamomile & rosehip skin creams: I'm going to group these all together for my review as I feel these all had similar effects for my skin. These are pretty much targeted at dry skins, they're very heavy. My skin is very oily so they weren't really the products for me. Despite not being suited for my skin they didn't make it go crazy which is a plus. They also smelt very nice and had a rather luxurious feel to them. These lasted me a week each.
Geranium & thistle skin cream: this is targeted for combination skin and therefore is much more up my street. This sunk into my skin really well and left it feeling very smooth. It also smelt really nice, I wasn't really expecting to after finding out it contains thistles although I'm not too sure what make me make this resumption. I really liked using this but it didn't wow me. This is £24 and I didn't think it did anything that cheaper moisturisers don't so I probably won't purchase the full size. This sample lasted me a week just like the other skin creams.
Camelia & rose gentle hydrating cleanser: this is a hot cloth cleanser than you use with the accompanying muslin cloth. I thought this was a very nice cleanser and it smelt very strongly of roses, which I for one like. This felt a lot nicer than my No7 hot cloth cleanser but it is £25 for 100ml or £35 for 200ml so I probably won't be repurchasing. I got 3 cleanses out of the sample.
Kukui & jojoba bead skin brightening exfoliator: this was my favourite product out of all of the samples. This smelt so refreshing, just like lemon sherbet. I want to buy the full size for the smell! This is one of the best exfoliators I've ever used, the beads in it are perfect. This is £20 at a full size but I'm seriously considering buying it. I got 3 uses out of this sample.
Now onto the giveaway part. I got two, thinking that a 5ml sample of each product wouldn't be enough for me to judge how much I liked it. I was wrong! So I'm going to give away one set and the accompanying muslin cloth. This will be a UK only giveaway. a Rafflecopter giveaway
