Samples Received & Redeemed: August 2014

How fast time flies for the month of August. Before we know it, it's the end of August as we embark into September. Featured in this monthly post are some Daiso goodies I happened to see and madly grabbed them while they were still available. Although not fast enough as the Daiso at my area didn't stock them after the products got sold out in the span of 2 days LOL

Her World
I was browsing around 7-Eleven in the dead of the night after a closing shift, spy a free tote bag that comes with the August issue and grabbed one. But not before choosing the Eiffel Tower design, since it's touted as a Agnes B. tote bag :O

P/S: When I flipped through the magazine, I was rewarded with yet another sample. A Nivea Body Lotion In-Shower Skin Condition Whitening satchet (10ml). So many Nivea samples LOL

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: You can still visit any bookstores, newstands, etc and see if they still have the August 2014 issue in stock. But if not, oh well.. :/

Nestle Fitness Chocolate
The Sample Store was previously giving this away via their "Sponsored" samples section (now changed to "Free" samples section). Of course, I just requested for it and little did I expect it to be the actual retail size LOL


I was browsing through Daiso when I chanced upon these Foot Mask Pack and grabbed 5 packets. And you can actually see the effects right from the very first use, which I decided to go back the next day and grabbed more. Only to see another 5 left remaining in stock. When I last left Daiso the previous day, there were more than 10 pieces. Of course, I quickly grabbed the remaining stocks. And until now, I still didn't see any new stocks for this product being put up :( At S$2 a piece, it's actually a steal.

Although I wouldn't recommend using Daiso makeup products, but anything else is actually fine :)

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: No samples from Daiso.

So, I finally finished up using my very last My Scheming masks and decided to head down to Watsons for some stocking up. Until I realized something... I couldn't find any My Scheming masks in Watsons at all. Thinking that maybe Watsons has sold out, I tried Guardian Pharmacy and the same thing happened. Not a single My Scheming masks in sight. And further thinking that maybe it's my area that's out of stock, I went down to JEM Watsons the next day. Still out of stock, same thing happened in Lot 1 Watsons and Causeway Point Watsons. Feeling a little emo, I decided maybe it's time to switch to another brand and bought quite a few boxes from My Beauty Diary. Only to have them had a sale roughly 1 week after buying so many boxes >.<

Apple Polyphenol Mask & Aloe Mask.

Beaute Forest (布萊斯森林) Witch Hazel & Chamomile Soothing Mask & Luffa Mask.

Watsons Soothing and Moisturizing Facial Mask & Watsons Calming and Moisturizing Facial Mask.

Watsons Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Strips - These are for use on my face instead of my nose.

Biore Fresh Grapefruit Nose Pore Strips & Biore Sweet Berry Nose Pore Strips - These are actually meant for my nose only LOL

Aqua Rine Japanese Aroma Bath Sea Salt - Kinda been eyeing this brand for a new years. But because Watsons didn't carry the full range previously, so I didn't get any. But recently the Watsons at my area underwent renovation and they brought in the full-range, so I got this one to try out :D Seems like there's a total of 6 different "flavours", but Watsons always seemed to carry only half the available "flavours". Hmm...

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: No samples from Watsons.

The Body Shop
The Body Shop had new EDT in stock, including more items from the same range, Fiji Water Lotus. And my mother had been silently hinting to me to grab it. So... I got the EDT and Shower gel for myself and got my mother the EDT and Body Lotion. After she got the Fiji Water Lotus goodies from me, she then went on to casually mention that the scent is great, as reported in the newspapers. Like Mum, be a little more ecstatic leh...

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: You can pop by any The Body Shop outlets near you and "sniff-test" the range :D

Kao Singapore was previously hosting a MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask sampling activity. So, I went to request one :D It's an innovative self warming steam eye mask that relieves and relaxes your hardworking eyes :O

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: If you still haven't got your hands on this sample, go over to and fill in a short questionnaire to redeem one. Sample will be mailed to your mailbox :D

Ocean Health
The Sample Store also had this Ocean Health Memore supplement sample to redeem. Same thing, I redeemed for it and received 3 satchet in the mail. Each satchet contains 2 soft gels.

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Sample fully redeemed.

Ah Yuan Soap
Ah Yuan Soap Facebook page was previously hosting a sampling activity. I only got to know about it on the last few days, so I simply just shared it on my personal page timeline instead as I'm not sure if there's limited samples for redemption.

Ah Yuan Soap
I got the Eucalyptus Yuan Soap (Body) and the sample soap actually came with a small booklet detailing many of their different soaps for different usage. Gonna find their physical store and see if there's any meant for clothes too. My skin sometimes get too angsty and break out in rashes from synthetic cloth detergent :(

P/S: When my family goes for holidays and I'm the only one left at home, I hand-wash my clothes instead of the washing machine. Let's just say I'm an absolute idiot to operating washing machine(s) LOL

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Sampling activity is over.

Summer's Eve
Summer's Eve Facebook page was hosting a sample giveaway, so, I requested for my sample :D

Summer's Eve
I received:

  • Summer's Eve Feminine Wash - Normal Skin @ 5ml
  • Summer's Eve Femine Cleansing Wipes - Normal Skin @ One Wipe

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: If you haven't tried Summer's Eve before, go over to and request for your sample today. The sample will be mailed to your mailbox :D

Curél Singapore previously hosted a sampling activity for their latest a.k.a newest Curél Sebum Care. I received:

  • Curél Sebum Care Lotion @8ml
  • Curél Sebum Care Moisture Gel @ 7ml

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to Curél Singapore Facebook page at, Like their page first. Next, look for the Curél Sebum Care Samples tab and click on it. Follow the on-screen instructions and wait for the samples to arrive in your mailbox :D

Innisfree Singapore has previously hosting a tag-and-share sampling activity. There were around 10,000 sample kits to be given away when you tagged and shared the affiliated post around. I don't think it really reached 10,000 tags and shares, but then, those whom I did tagged had already done the tagging and sharing. Hence, I didn't tag too much, although I did share it a few times around on my personal timeline instead.

The kit I received includes:

  • innisfree green tea balancing skin x 2 @ 10ml each
  • innisfree green tea seed serum @ 5ml
  • innisfree green tea balancing cream @ 5ml

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: This sampling activity is over. However, they have another soon-to-come sampling activity in lieu of their global online store opening. Party 1 has ended, but there's still Party 2, Party 3 and Grand Open sample kits to be won. So, head over to and bookmark your calendars to join :D

The Sample Store
Saw this Bio-essence Tanaka White sample at the "Free Sample" section and requested for it :D

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Samples fully redeemed.

3M Singapore regularly had a sampling activity of some sort where you can redeem for free 3M products to try out. I was looking around for a scotch tape that doesn't peel off nail polish when doing nail art. I think this 3M Magic Tape does a good job :O

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: I presume the sample redemption is over as I can't find the link anymore >.<

L'Oreal Paris
I was randomly clicking around L'Oreal Paris Singapore Facebook page and decided to tack down some old samples. Weird that this got through LOL

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: I forgot exactly which sample link/tab I got this from, but you can play around over at and click on the "More" tab for some sample fun xD

Bt the way, I redeemed the L'Oreal Paris Perfect White Laser sample :D

Exuviance Singapore was hosting another sampling activity. Kinda forget if this is the exact same sample as they hosted previously. But this time round, I requested for the Exuviance OptiLight Essential 6 Serum samples (2ml per satchet). Samples will be mailed to your mailbox :D

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to, Like their page as a fan first. Next, click on the "More" tab and then click on "FREE Sample" to request. You can only choose 1 sample of the 3 offered :)

Why not like my Facebook page at 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 :)
