Samples Received/Redeemed: 14 Jan - 18 Jan 2013

Yet another quiet week. But still, some samples/freebies is better than none. Without much yakking from me, here's a look at what I've got my paws on for the week.

So, Venus Beauty recently hit their 1000 fans milestone and everyone is eligible to redeem a pot of NOPS Hydro Mud Mask. But first, you would need to send them a PM (a.k.a Private Message) of your email, which allows them to be able to send you a redemption letter in return. Print out the redemption letter and bring it to Venus Beauty @ AMK for redemption, only on Weekdays.

Here's what the mud mask in the box looks like. Here's what my recommendation is, save the paper box in the event you need to bring the box back to redeem something else in return. So far, Venus Beauty has previously requested fans to bring back the empty box in exchange for another different NOPS product to redeem. So, I am guessing this is probably going to be needed too. Therefore, don't be in a hurry to dispose of the box too soon.

Here's a look at the NOPS Hydro Mud Mask, weighing in at 80g. Note that this is the actual retail size they are selling, not a small little tub of sample.

Here's another peek at the product itself. Awesome huh? It comes with an additional lightweight lid inside the actual lid, to prevent germs from getting in and most importantly, prevent the mud mask from drying out too.

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to Venus Beauty Facebook page at, Like their page if you haven't done so as you need to be a fan in order to get your hands on the freebies and goodies.

Next, click on the box that says Message and once a pop-up box appears, type in your email address to send. After that, sit back and wait for a email from Venus Beauty. The redemption letter is in the form of an attachment together with the email Venus Beauty sent you.

Do be aware that you need to print out the redemption letter in order to redeem your NOPS Hydro Mud Mask. No letter means no redemption, and no, you cannot flash the redemption letter via your awesome Android or iPhone either.

So, Estee Lauder Singapore had their latest product in the form of sample up for grabs as well. I got 5 sample sachets of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye via collection at Tangs Orchard @ Vivo City. The lady there is pleasant and polite, and she did took the trouble to explain to me how the sample is supposed to be used. Quite a remarkable difference from the Orchard Road ones (with the exception of DFS Galleria Orchard and Paragon outlets), I must concur *nods head seriously*

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to Estee Lauder Singapore Facebook page at, Like their page if you haven't done so.

Next, look for this app called Revive Your Eyes (or go over to Follow the prompts and do take note that you have to finish watching the video before the next stage of the app loads up.

Similarily, you also have to print out a redemption letter/email to redeem it. Just print it out as black-and-white, since there's no indication that you need to print out a color copy for redemption.

Why not like my Facebook page at to be informed of latest samples I found, which is duly updated? Also includes updates to contests that I've sourced out for you to join. It will definitely save you the trouble of having to hunt them down :)
