My husband, Andrew, bought me a fantastic gift from his last trip with work.
He got me a gift set of make-up, which if you’d like to see my first impressions of, you can go here and see my YouTube video about that.
The gift set also came with some free samples of the Impress Emulsion and Lotion. After doing a bit of research I found that the Lotion is basically a toner and the Emulsion is a moisturiser. The Impress website by the way is fantastic, some really useful instructions for all the products.
The first thing I’d like to say about these products is that they are samples, so you don’t get a lot of product which is fine! Perfect for a quick review. My only problem with the size and design of the sample bottle however is that the plastic is very hard, making it very difficult to get the product out as I can’t squeeze the bottle.
The toner is nice, it doesn’t have to strong a smell, I find some toners can have a slightly alcoholic odour. This one is quite sweet and I can’t smell any unpleasant medicinal scents to it.
The moisturiser similarly has a very pleasant smell. It’s quit a milky consistency which goes a long way, my skin loved it! It’s not greasy and didn’t leave my face shiny or sticky. It’s quite light so good for the summer. As far as I can tell from the bottle it doesn’t contain any sun protection which would be a draw back for me, but there’s always the option to wear a separate sun screen. Like I said, it was difficult to get enough product out of the bottle, I would like to have been able to more easily apply more, but I was cautious of wasting it!
