Of course I jumped at the freebies, not only because I really enjoyed using the previous versions but also because I was curious how the new formulas differ. Given the advertised value of each deluxe sample tube is $46(!), I was expecting a slightly bigger tube than the itty bitty I had back in January, only to be shocked when the order arrived - each tube was huge! The Cream is a 15mL/0.5fl oz. deluxe sample tube, about less than a third of the 50mL full size while the Eye Cream is 7mL/0.2fl oz., just shy of half the 15mL full size! O.O
Then just a few days after that, Beauty.com had this spectacular GWP and among the deluxe samples that filled the cool-looking sporty Richard Chai toiletry bag is another 15mL/0.5fl oz. tube of this Premier Cru The Cream! Am I just lucky left and right or what?
That was all the excuse I need to indulge in the Stila Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Set (currently using, will review soon), the Dr.Ci:Labo Enrich-lift Cleansing & Massage, as well as a new skincare brand Sothys!
Since then, I've landed two more mini 2mL/0.06fl oz. tubes of this cream, one of which I'm happily right now on our trip out east ^.^ If there's any noticeable differences between the two versions, I'll definitely update later.
