Try Before You Buy | Avene Skincare ♥


Hey beaut's!!!

Today I have abit of an exciting post that might be of interest to all you Skincare lovers out there that love a cheeky bargain or should I say freebie! 

A while ago I was browsing the interwebs as I was looking into buying some Avene Skincare products as they seem so well suited for my sensitive skin, and as I was browsing I came across a website I had never heard of before, called Mistrys Pharmacy. Mistrys Pharmacy have an amazing Try Before You Buy offer which allows you pick 5 Avene samples for absolutely nothing, and all you have to pay is the £3.25 delivery fee! I first thought that their must be some sort of catch or subscription but no... No catch, no subscription! Before I knew it I was browsing through all the Avene samples that where available, there was also some Lancome, Estee Lauder, Eucerin and Bio Oil samples up for grabs too but I solely wanted to give Avene a whirl.
The samples I picked up are the Extremely Gentle Cleanser 5ml, Gentle Purifying Scrub 5ml, Light Hydrating Cream 5ml, Soothing Hydrating Cream and the SPF 50 Facial Cream 5ml. When my samples where delivered they all came enclosed in a cute Avene Skincare Bag which I thought was a nice touch, also the samples all have squeezy tube style packaging with little screw lid's which I was pleased about as I thought they might have been sachets and I tend to get so annoyed with sachets as they are so messy and not easy to control when applying.
Overall I'm so glad I came across the Mistry's Pharmacy website, I certainly think they had a fabulous idea when they thought of the Try Before You Buy concept , I find especially with higher end Skincare products I'd always want to try before I buy, I mean who wants to invest in something pricey that they may not like or may not suit their skin type, not me! I wish more company's would do something like this as it would make life so much easier.

What do you think of a try before you buy concept beaut's?? Will you be taking advantage of this like I did hehe?? I'd love to know!

Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY!!! You could win an Urban Decay NAKED Palette of your choice!!!

  5. Thanks so much for sharing this. I've placed an order for a couple of items I've been really wanting to try but too scared to shell out for in case I don't like them. Such a great idea.

  9. This is such a great idea! There's nothing worse than spending a lot of money (or even a reasonable amount) on some new skincare and discovering that it just doesn't work for you or you don't like it x
