You ever have that moment at the drugstores or anywhere really where you’d just like to try a certain skincare product before you buy it. I’m not talking about a smallish sample! I’m talking about a decent amount of product that might last you a week or even two so you can decide if you really want to indulge in the larger size?
Well apparently Try before you buy sizes are becoming more common at the drugstore! Recently, Covergirl started offering their Tru Magic Perfector Mattifier in a mini size. I honestly thought this was the most amazing thing since that sliced bread. It’s just so great to be able to score a deluxe size of a product and give a test drive before indulging in a massive one that might not work out for me.
More and more L’Oreal is also offering MANY of their popular skincare products in Try Before You Buy Sizes as well! I ran across their newest products recently at CVS offered in sample sizes.
Take a look!
Revitalift Moisturizer as well as Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil are both offered in generous deluxe sizes (0.5 oz) marked at $7 each and the newest L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Eye Smoother and the original Miracle Blur formula for $7.79 each weighing in at .17 oz each.
I gotta admit I had a moment where I was like, “Gee I wish these were cheaper…” I think maybe $5 bucks would be a nice figure for some of the samples but $7-$8 bucks each I find myself saying well, might as well buy the larger size on sale and with coupons if I can find them.
But on the upside these new Try Before You Buy sizes are genius! I wish they did this with lipsticks, gloss, even blush…! At affordable prices of course! It would save me SO much money! As I happen to be a try it and toss it type of girl if something doesn’t work for me. I’m not terribly good about returner stuff and it ends up in my Makeup Graveyard if I hate it. So smaller sizes in makeup would be welcome! And skincare, well, that’s ideal to say the least especially for those with sensitive skin that aren’t sure if a product will work for them!
Do like this idea!
Just wish it ran a bit cheaper.
Do you like the idea of try before you buy sizes or does it suck some of the joy out of trying a new product for you?
Prefer indulging in the larger size?
