Sample Samplin' #2

I have a huge box of unused samples which I never end up looking at, so I think I might make this a weekly post to hopefully use up some of these minis and maybe find some new gems!
Another two bits from my lovely lady at work, this time from the drool-worth CHANEL counter. I snatched these up quickly and couldn't wait to get home to test them out, one was a disappointment and one was a possible new love.

Bad news first and that comes with the CHANEL Gentle Bi-Phase Eye Make Up Remover. First of all how cute is that little bottle? Mini's are just adorable. Secondly this is one of those oil/water cleansers which you shake up to create the mix. This is nothing to write home about, it doesn't really do much more than a drugstore oil based remover would, the only thing I would say is it isn't very greasy, but at £21.50 a pop thats not enough convincing for me!

Now on to the good stuff. My first application of the CHANEL Hydra Beauty Gel Creme was greeted with a familiar scent, after which I realised was the same as the Les Beiges Powder. I absolutely love this smell I couldn't wait to get it on my face and even though my skin can be pretty sensitive it didn't seem to react to it, but be wary. This is a really nice light weight gel cream and sit perfectly on my oily skin. I find this makes a great base for make up, with the right amount of hydration but not greasiness. The only problem? The price at £50 a tub, one to use your Debenhams or Boots points on ladies!

Any samples that have made you run out to purchase the full size recently?
