Hahaha. I am exactly the same. I have tons of ingredient samples. And every time I am envisioning a new product, I want to stuff it with all the actives I know. Kind of go for the kill in a desire of making that one product that will make a skin overhaul overnight.
How did you train yourself to test one at a time?

Hi Sweetsation - Nice to know I'm not the only one!

Okey... we definitely have different kind of shopping places for our ingredients- ;) Most of the time I order from two little Finnish netstore, and they don't advertise too much. They are not offering any samples during the ordering process, but you might get something extra every now and then.

HI Signe - I don't get many free samples. Matter of fact, I think the first free samples I have gotten are relatively recent. I'm used to paying for everything - even for samples.

Boy was this a timely and kindred spirit posting! I am constantly suffering from "why the heck did I buy this additive, extract, etc..." I definitely need to get more organized with a list of what each thing is, what was my intention when I purchased it (ie, this would be great in my "eye serum" or something like that...I order it, and then by the time I get around to trying to create something, I can't remember why I ordered the ingredients, lol). So funny to think of many of us in the same boat!! Thanks for the article!
