Yes. I read those reviews too. Products were ok, about the same as Ren/Balance Me/Mychelle i.e. similarly priced natural/organic-ish products. I was expecting them to be better than that based on the reviews though, people were raving about it. And there wasn't anything wrong with them, they just weren't the amazing thing the reviews said. The only thing I can thing of it that the reviewers were either pr/paid people or they were all using something non-synthetic for the first time. Not bad, but not life changing either.
Naturismo have a good selection of samples by Pai. You can get them for about a quid when you buy one full sized product (not necessarily Pai), so maybe buy one thing and get samples of the other two? Or buy something you already like and get samples in all 3 if they have them? And they have lots of other samples too...
They look lovely, are popular with my friends who can afford the £££ but they aren't stratospherically different to products that cost less. So if you have the money, go for it but if its going to be a push you can prob do better elsewhere.
Ok thank you! I will check out the samples. I've ordered from Nautrismo before but didn't realise they did the Pai samples. Maybe I'll try one of the serums as I have a LRP one at the minute but Paula's Choice doesn't rate it at all and I also learned that as they sell in China they test on animals so that's put me off them.
Really like the cleanser - very gentle, takes off all makeup (even waterproof) very easily. I repurchase quite frequently. I've tried other products such as the rosehip oil and got some samples of the sensitive day cream and one of the toners. They were decent but I wouldn't repurchase. But the cleanser is excellent.
