On one hand, I feel like short trips are perfect for trying out travel sized items. On the other, I know trying some brand new on my dry and sometimes fickle skin when I'm away from home is really kind of, umm, crazy. Or should I say stupid? Or both? Didn't stop me this time with Aqualabel White Clear Foam though (or any other time in the past, either...) xD
From the Meizhuang (美妝, Beauty) issue of FashionGuide Magazine TW, Fall 2012 Vol. 25, I got some nice freebies with a localized 50mL/1.7fl oz. bottle of Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Body Cream, Toms Whitening Renewal Mask which went to my mum, and a set of localized (as in made in Taiwan) Aqualabel White samples, which has 2 packets each of this White Clear Foam 2g, White Up Lotion S (Refreshing) 2mL, and White Up Emulsion S (Refreshing) 2mL.
I'm not sure about the whitening part, but as a foaming cleanser, let me tell you, with the help of a foaming net it foamed like there was no tomorrow! In fact, it foamed so well 1 packet lasted me the whole week's stay as I only needed a tiny bit for an adequate lather. It smelled nice too, reminded me very much of Shiseido Pureness Deep Cleansing Foam I used during my college days when my skin was still on the oily side.

Over all, it was my own damn fault to try the cleanser, and kept using it even when I noticed the dryness almost immediately after stepping out of the shower. I guess being crazy (and stupid) has a price. Ha...
