While searching for the best prices on some Avene skincare products I came across a website called Mistrys Pharmacy which is "the online arm of Mistrys Pharmacy, a large High Street Pharmacy based in the bustling English town of Market Harborough in Leicestershire. Mistrys Pharmacy was started in 1977 by Shantilal Mistry and his wife, Jasumati Mistry." They have a wide range of products from medicines, skincare, hair and body care to makeup and fragrances.
After browsing through the website I noticed an offer "try before you buy" on a selection of Avene, Eucerin, Lancôme, Estee Lauder samples. You can choose up to 5 different samples and all you pay is a postage £3.25. How great is that! More shops and websites should provide service like this. I don't mind paying higher price for a product that I know it will work well for me than splashing out on something that will be just a big disappointment. The samples are good size to test a product a few times so you can get the general idea how will it perform for you.
I chose to get a samples of:
Eau Thermale Avene Hydrance Optimal Light Hydrating Cream 5ml- I used it 5 times and it's a lovely, light cream, just what I was looking for which I will be buying the full size.
Eau Thermale Avene Very High Protection SPF50+ Normal Emulsion 5ml - I am looking for a sun cream with high SPF suitable for my oily but sensitive skin and will be testing this out soon.
Lancome Teint Visionnaire Foundation 02 Lys Rose 5ml - I was very excited to try this high end foundation, I've tried it a couple of times already but I haven't made my mind yet if it's worth the price tag for full size.
Lancome DreamTone 2 - Medium SkinTone 5ml - I was just curious about this product which claims to correct skin tone and as uneven complexion is one of my main concerns I want to give it a go.
Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector Serum 5ml - this serum has been on my wish list for a long time but it's very expensive so I am super excited to get a sample of it and if I can see even a small difference after a few uses I might treat myself to it for some special occasion like birthday:) It claims to tackle deep wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin tone.
Have you shopped at Mistrys Pharmacy? Did you take advantage of "try before you buy" offer?
