When traveling, not only do I take advantage of those little trial sizes at the local drug store, I also take along all my free trial cosmetics I have collected over the year.
This year, I was really lucky to get a sample of La Mer--yes, that really expensive moisturizer. ($130.00 for 1 oz.) A friend of mine is totally smitten with it and says it is worth paying the price.
It does smell good, but after a week, for me the jury is still out. I checked out other reviews, and found that the jury was still out for a lot of people. Some say I should try it longer. I think it may work best with dry/troubled skin, as it originally was discovered to work well for burns.
At the same time, I was trying another moisturizer sample for comparison. I really liked that one! Check it out on my Baby Boomer Beauty page~
