Twice a year, Murale has a wonderful event that includes the most fantastic gift with purchase. The Murale Fall Fab and Free is back starting September 17th! If you spend $125 or more, you’ll receive a gift with purchase which includes a very nice tote and a huge selection of deluxe samples! I reviewed the samples from the spring Fab and Free event and I have to say, the fall event has an even better value! I’ll be showing you the 34 samples worth $479 that could be yours during the Murale Fall Fab and Free event.
There are quite a few face creams available in the sample bag! In this photo, I have the The Better Skin Co. Better Skin Mirakle Cream (7.3mL), Filorga NCTF- Reverse Cream (7mL), Dr Roebuck’s No Worries Hydrating Face Moisturizer (15mL) and the Bioderma Hydrabio Serum (5mL). The Bioderma Hydrabio collection is my favorite for the winter time and is a must have for anyone with dry skin. The other 3 moisturizers are new to me!
The next group of moisturizers I have are the Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator (15mL), Kat Burki Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream (7mL), Estee Lauder Revitalizing Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme (5mL), Biotherm Blue Therapy Cream-in-Oil (5mL). All four products are new to me! The Clinique cream is more of a gel texture and is very light weight. I love the scent of the Kat Burki cream and is surprisingly light. The Biotherm texture is very unique as it looks like a gel but feels moisturizing like a thick cream.
In this last photo, I have face creams and some other skincare items. I have heard a lot of Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse (10mL) and it smells very luxurious. You can pair the Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Serum (5mL) with any of the face creams for added effectiveness. For more anti-aging, there is the Clarins Wrinkle Control Day Cream (15mL). Lastly, there is a sample of the Shiseido Bio-Performance Glow Revival Cream (10mL).
There are two options for eye creams in the Gift with Purchase. The YSL Top Secrets Eye Perfecting Fluid (3mL) is very light weight and serum like. It smells wonderful and instantly absorbs. The Darphin Stimulskin Plus Eye Cream (5mL) is a much thicker consistency. This would be better if you have dry or mature skin. The YSL eye cream leaves my skin feeling smooth while the Darphin makes my skin feel supple.
A new trend that I’ve been seeing is neck cream. This makes sense as the neck is often negleted of any moisturizing. While it’s too much of a step for me, here are two you can try. Stri-Vectin Tightening Neck Cream (7mL) and the YSL Forever Youth Liberator Y-Shape Creme (5mL). I am not sure how neck creams are formulated differently than face creams? If you know, please leave me a comment!
I’ve been enjoying face masks more these days thanks to the Eco-Tools Mask Mates set! The three to try in this gift with purchase are: Eve Lom Rescue Mask (15mL), Immunocologie Vital Clay (10mL), and Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel (10mL). The Eve Lom and Immunocologie are both clay masks whereas the Juice Beauty is a AHA/BHA mask.
There are two really large sized cleanser samples and a serum I forgot to put in the other photos. The Rodial Vit C Brightening Cleanser (20mL) is a gel cleanser with vitamin C and AHAs. The MyChelle Refining Sugar Cleanser (30mL) has sucrose as the first ingredient and gently exfoliates while turning into a creamy lather. My face cleansing routine is usually based around makeup removal so I’m excited to try cleansers that actually have more skincare benefits. Lastly I have the Lancome Youth Activating Concentrate (8mL) which is a classic anti-aging serum.
Some other random skincare tidbits include the Patchology Hydrating Lip Gel. I’ve always wanted to try lip masks so this is very cool. Then I have the Clinique Fresh Pressed set. I actually received this in the spring Fab and Free sample kit too but have not used it yet.
There are only 3 makeup items in this sample kit but one I am very excited about! There is a Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Perla, which is a light nude shade (check out my review). There are often many mini Stila samples so I’m not as excited about this. I am very excited for the Benefit Bad Gal Bang mascara as I’m a huge fan of the They’re Real mascara. Lastly, there is a sample of the iconic Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner. But the packaging of it makes me not want to bother to try.
As usual, there are a few samples for the men in your life. My boyfriend already uses the Lab Series Multi-Action Face Wash so this is a nice travel size. Also, there is The Art of Shaving Shaving Cream.
The two fragrance samples are Giorgio Armani Si and Dolce & Gabbana The One. Both have a sweet scent but the D&G The One definitely reminds me of something I’ve smelled on other people before. Neither are very new perfumes but appropriate for the fall. The only thing I don’t like is that both have a pull off tab. So I frequently spill on my fingers instead of being able to place the perfume where I want it.
Lastly, I have some miscellaneous items. There is an RMS Living Luminizer sample. I’m interested by the brand but the packaging of the sample makes it bothersome to try out. Next, a new St.Tropez Everyday Tinted Moisturiser + Primer (15mL). The only item for the hair is a Phyto Paris Phytomilleisme Mask (50mL).
Murale Fall Fab and Free
Overall, the number and size of samples you get in the Gift with Purchase is very impressive! I do wish there were more makeup samples but I like that there is such a wide variety of brands. The products appeal to a wide variety of skin concerns and I’m looking forward to taking these with me on my upcoming travels!
