Samples Received & Redeemed: November 2014

Posted by Riih at Monday, December 08, 2014 0 comments Links to this post
Finally! My phone decided to "surrender" my photos to me, after an almost all-nighter with a few phone cables. Wakakaka!! And hence, my humble apologies for delaying this much anticipated post by a week and without anymore yakking from me, let's take a look at the goodies I've scored for the month of November :D



Exuviance
Exuviance was previously hosting a sampling activity and I received Exuviance Night Renewal HydraGel x 2 sachets at 2g each.


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Sampling is now closed.



Dr Young AC Out Spot stOp Serum
The Sample Store had some new "Free" samples up for grabs. The first one I got was the Dr. Young's AC Out Spot stOp Serum x 1 sachet at 1ml.


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Samples have been fully redeemed.



b.liv
b.liv was previously having a birthday sampling activity. In short, b.liv celebrate it's birthday by giving out samples, how awesome and sweet can they be? :D No doubt, I requested for mine too. But unfortunately, they had to take the trouble to send it from Selangor, Malaysia and it was via DHL Express, mind you. Normally, when companies have their birthday and they want to give out freebies, they'd just mail it out as normal mail. But it seems that b.liv appreciates it's buying and sampling customers to actually use DHL Express for such a small package.


b.liv
The samples I received are (from left to right):

  • b.liv off with those heads blackheads sebum gel @ 3ml
  • b.liv drench me moisturizing cleansing gel @ 5ml
  • b.liv absolute matte Clarifying Mask with Active Charcoal Mask Sheet @ 28ml


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Sampling is over. But this is one of those many times I requested for b.liv samples and I can say they regularly host sampling activities too. Just keep a lookout on their Facebook page over at facebook.com/blivbycellnique



Watsons
Was doing my usual round of lazy browsing around Watsons when I remembered I ran out of foam-based facial wash. I normally use a foam-based facial wash at the end of the day to remove makeup while I use the daily exfoliating types in the morning to wake and freshen up my skin. Along the way, I saw this Bifesta goodie and couldn't resist grabbing it as well. And just before I head over to the cashier counter, I also recalled that I wanted to buy a box of aromatherapy masks that My Beauty Diary had previously released out. So, in order from left to right:

  • Biore Marshmallow Whip Acne Care Facial Wash @ 150ml
  • Bifesta BrightUp Cleansing Wash @ 200ml
  • My Beauty Diary Citrus Firming Aroma Mask @ 10 pieces per box


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: No samples available from Watsons.



Cetaphil
Every year without fail, Cetaphil will always mail out something fun alongside with a discount voucher that I can use when buying Cetaphil products. This year, I got a cute handheld eye mask with a gold moustache alongside with a $3 voucher.


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: First of all, you need to start requesting for samples from Cetaphil Singapore Facebook page at facebook.com/CetaphilSG. And every year during your birthday month, they will send you the voucher without fail. I normally gave mine to friends and colleagues who want to try out Cetaphil but don't dare to due to the steep price.



Kleenex
Kleenex Singapore was hosting a Puzzle Magic event where players who participated get a chance to win limited edition Kleenex Gift set and a staycation. Couldn't care less for the staycation since it's probably only for 1 night, at most 2. A real sponsored staycation should actually last up to half a week, which is at least 2 nights + 3 days, right? Anyway, I was aiming for the limited edition gift set instead. Having tissue paper is more realistic :D


Kleenex
I got a soft pack and 2 handy packs + 1 Mickey Mouse pen :D


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Puzzle Magic event is over, but at least once a year close to Christmas, Kleenex Singapore Facebook page at facebook.com/kleenexsg would host Christmas-related events where they give away limited edition tissue gift sets. This year is a little special, it came with a Mickey Mouse pen too!!



Essential
I saw that The Sample Store was once again giving out Essential samples and decided to try my luck and see if I could get the samples for their latest product, Deep Cleansing Care...


Essential
And nope, it's still the Light Finish Volumizing sample. Makes me wonder why they had so much hype, especially on the Deep Cleansing Care but only chose to give out samples for their old range?


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to Essential Singapore Facebook page at facebook.com/Essential.SG, Like their page as a fan first. Next, click on the Free Sample link and fill in your details, follow the prompts and wait for the sample(s) to be delivered to your mailbox.



Daiso
Was hanging around Daiso, trying to find the usual brand of Senbei my mother like, but it's still out-of-stock for the past 2 months. So, I just decided to aimlessly wander around and marvel at how certain things only cost a grand $2 while the same counterpart of the product that is brand-name is being sold for $50 and up. Along the way, I got these for myself:

  • Mini Nail Art Brush
  • Brow Stencils
  • Smartphone Stand


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: No samples from Daiso.



Frg
The Sample Store was giving away Bird Dropping Remover samples, no clue why I requested for it. Maybe I'll just randomly pick a car owner under my block and tack it to his/her windshield instead :D


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Samples fully redeemed.



The Body Shop
Spend X amount and receive a cute tote bag at The Body Shop. The reason why we popped by TBS is because it was my birthday month and I get discounts LOL


The Body Shop
From left to right:

  • Vitamin C Microdermabrasion @ 75ml
  • Pink Grapefruit Body Sorbet @ 200ml
  • Glazed Apple Body Polish @ 200ml


The Body Shop
From left to right:

  • Glazed Apple EDT @ 30ml
  • Frosted Cranberry Shower Gel @ 60ml
  • Vitamin E Skin-In Moisture Mask @ 6ml
  • Frosted Cranberry Body Butter @ 50ml
  • Mini Shower Puff


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: You can pop by any TBS outlet and try and opened bottles on the spot. Not sure if some of these have samples to take home and try though.



Cetaphil
I think DayLong is a sub-branch of cetaphil as my package had the Cetaphil logo on it, but then, I'm not 100% sure though. Anyway, I redeemed my sunscreen lotion samples. From left to right:

  • DayLong Kids SPF50+ PA++++ Liposomal Lotion @ 10ml
  • DayLong SPF50+ PA++++ Light Gel @ 10ml


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Sample link not available.



The Sample Store
More samples from The Sample Store. From left to right:

  • Vitas Scalp Rebalancing Shampoo @ 15ml
  • Vitas Scalp Treatment Conditioner @ 15ml
  • Dr Young's Triple Action B.B. SPF 33 PA+++ @ 1ml
  • Bio-Essence Face Lifting Cream @ 2ml


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Samples have been fully redeemed.

Samples Received & Redeemed: October 2014

Posted by Riih at Friday, November 07, 2014 0 comments Links to this post
Many apologies for the late update on this monthly post, my work schedule has been rather tight and almost feel like it's back-to-back. A girl treasures her sleep, you know. So without much further ado, let's all proceed along with the monthly samples and cheap and most-wanted goodies on my wishlist for who knows how long LOL



Watsons
So, I browsed around Watsons and only got this 3 new items, not including my usual monthly purchase of Collagen drinks and Collagen jellies. From left to right:

  • Essential Leave On Treatment Milk @ 100ml
  • Bio-Essence Miracle Water Jelly Makeup Remover @ 200ml
  • Milk Plus Bright and White Whitening Facial Scrub @ 100ml

The Essential Leave On Treatment Milk purchase was decided after I tried the many samples I managed to get my hair on when it first came out. When I realized I was getting less tangled hair when I woke up in the morning, I decided to get a retail bottle. As for the Bio-Essence Miracle Water Jelly Makeup Remover, it seems to be a new product and I am always on the lookout for better makeup removers and I'm always game enough to try new stuffs :D And lastly for the Milk Plus Bright and White Whitening Facial Scrub, it has been around for a while now but the reason why I didn't wanted to buy it back then was because the Watsons near my area looked kinda shabby then. It was only after they had their outlet renovations that I decided to get it :D


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: No samples for trying :( And the sample redemption for Essential Leave On Treatment Milk is over. However, I would recommend getting the retail version if you have hair that is kept past shoulder-length and you wake up to lion-mane hair in the morning :P



Daiso
I always like bringing hand creams to work since my hands (or claws) always gets so dry that everything I touched feels so powdery. I'm kinda OCD about getting that powdery feeling and sensation on my hands and feet. Urgh! But the catch is that, hand creams nowadays comes in those tin foil tubes version, you can find variations of them at:

  • The Body Shop
  • L'Occitane en Provence
  • Crabtree & Evelyn

so on and so forth, but just to name a few personal and classy stores that I always like to frequent. And because I am always lugging a big bag (big enough to bring my daily work essentials, but not that big to be considered a "runaway", according to my mother and my colleagues) and all that things around just kinda "squished" my precious hand creams. So, I just decided to get this so I can transfer my hand cream into this little dandy bottle. No more flattened hand cream tubes LOL


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Unfortunately, there's no samples for Daiso products. But hey, it costs only S$2 per item, what's there to complain? :D



Hada Labo
All those sample Hada Labo products, I always use them either via the traditional method. Or, I get those DIY mask from Daiso and use the products as a mask instead, if I feel really lazy in trying to "piak" them onto my skin LOL


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to http://www.hadalabo.com.sg/sample/, fill in your details and wait for the samples to be delivered to your mailbox :D



The Sample Store - Nivea
I've tried roll-on deodorant and most times, it just didn't work for me. So, I ended up switching over to deodorant sprays instead as I find that it's slightly more effective than a roll-on. Although I have to stress that if you tend to sweat a lot, or if your work/job/career demanded that you literally sweat buckets, you'll probably be better off getting those deodorant wipes to feel clean and fresh as it would seem rather ineffective. I got my Nivea Anti-Perspirant Whitening Happy Shave from The Sample Store previously and the sample bottle comes in a 35ml bottle and I thought it might be good to give the Nivea version a try as I am currently a Rexona user.


The Sample Store - Biorè
I got my Biorè Makeup Remover Micellar Cleansing Water sample (@ 6ml) from The Sample Store previously. Just when you thought Biorè has already come out with a new makeup remover, there comes another new Biorè makeup remover once more. It seems that makeup remover choices are getting more and more abundant, and I just love trying out new things all the time :D


The Sample Store - VDL
VDL samples I got from The Sample Store as well. The samples (3 pieces in total) I received are:

  • VDL Skin Expert Serum @ 28ml per sachet
  • VDL Skin Expert Cream @ 50ml per sachet


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: For sample redemption of Nivea Anti-Perspirant Whitening Happy Shave, go over to http://bit.ly/NIVEAWhiteningHappyShave and checkout/redeem with your TSS points.

Unfortunately, sample redemptions for Biorè Makeup Remover Micellar Cleansing Water and VDL Skin Expert are out of stock :(



Vichy Normaderm Oil-Control Duo
I redeemed a Vichy Normaderm Oil-Control Duo sample previously. The samples I received are:

  • Vichy Normaderm Tri-activ x 2 sachets @ 1.5ml each
  • Vichy Normaderm Night Detox x 2 sachets @ 1.5ml each


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to http://feelthevichydifference.com/#box4, fill in your details and wait for the samples to be delivered to your mailbox :D




Centrum
Centrum was previously hosting a sampling activity for a specific amount of testers. I was one of the lucky one to get a tube to try out. Simply put, I simply cannot digest and keep actual Vitamin C a.k.a Orange Juice in my stomach for long. I always end up puking everything out, so my next best course of action would be to go for Vitamin C tablets such as these Centrum Effervescent tablets instead. It stays inside my "system" long enough for me to reap it's benefits. Or risk feeling ill for the next 1 week after drinking a cup of pure, undiluted OJ. Hmm..


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Sampling activity is over.



Dr. Young was previously hosting a sampling activity and these are the samples I received from them :D The sample details go from left to right:

Dr. Young Sample Kit
  • Dr. Young Camellia Deep Cleansing Foam @ 1ml
  • Dr. Young Triple Action B.B. SPF 33 PA+++ @ 1.5ml or 2ml
  • Dr. Young Bamboo Blooming Booster @ 2ml


Dr. Young Sample Kit
  • Dr. Young Anti-Dryness Eye Gel @ 1ml
  • Dr. Young Pore Tightening Serum @ 1.5ml or 2ml
  • Dr. Young AC Out Spot stOP Serum @ 1ml


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to http://www.dr-young.com.sg/campaign/sampleredemption1.php, fill out a really short questionnaire and your details and wait for the samples to be delivered to your mailbox :D



The Body Shop
Previously, The Body Shop had some new items and store discounts. So, I went to get:

  • Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel @ 250ml
  • Red Musk Eau De Parfum @ 100ml


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: No samples for redemption although I have to say their new products are getting lesser while their current products are always on offer. I can't say no to offers, especially shower gels since I can't share the family soap bar due to skin issues and allergies :(



Essential
Essential decided to give their current shampoo and conditioner a new makeover and at the same time introduce a new product. I thought I would be getting sample versions of their latest shampoo and conditioner. But I got:

  • Essential Light Finish Volumizing Shampoo @ 15ml
  • Essential Light Finish Volumizing Conditioner @ 15ml

I really wanted to try their Essential Deep Cleansing Care Shampoo and Essential Deep Cleansing Care Conditioner since the description for these 2 products fit my hair/scalp type perfectly well D:


WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: If you want to give their Essential Light Finish Volumizing samples a try, go over to https://www.facebook.com/Essential.SG, Like their page as a fan first. Next, click on the Free Sample tab and follow the prompts, fill in your details. Wait for the samples to be delivered to your mailbox :D

Although I still find it weird that they seemed to place a great deal of emphasis on their Essential Deep Cleansing Care series but gave out the Essential Light Finish Volumizing samples instead :O



Why not like my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PuNiaosProductReviews to be informed of latest samples I found, which is duly updated? Also includes updates to health, beauty & lifestyle tips at least once a day. It will definitely save you the trouble of having to hunt them down :)
