I. LOVE. SAMPLE SIZES, and these travel kits are chock full of ’em. Those mini-bottles and jars make it easy to discover new products from a line without having to commit.
Case in point: the Radiance Collection Kit ($15), which I sampled last week.
It comes with seven mini-items from the Radiance Collection, a body care line featuring products containing royal jelly (a nutritious substance eaten by queen bees in the hive) to restore glow to dull skin: Radiance Exfoliating Body Bar, Exfoliating Body Wash, Body Lotion, Day Creme, Night Creme, Eye Creme and Lip Shimmer.
I liked everything in the kit, but my favorite product turned out to be the one I least expected to like — the Exfoliating Body Bar.
Scented with rose and freesia, she foams up like crazy and leaves my skin feeling clean without that annoying tightness some cleansers can cause.
I figured out that it also works fab as a shave cream, too (I have hairy Yeti legs…).
I was able to try a product I may otherwise not have tried and now may even spring for the full-sized $4 bar.

Whatever happened to Lil’ Ceaz?
I’m almost too ashamed to admit that I still know the lyrics to Crush on You, by Lil’ Kim and Lil’ Ceaz (“I know you see me on the video, TRUE!”).
Raise your hand if you remember being in a club when this song played. It always made everyone go NUTS! Ahhh… memories.
