Samples Received & Redeemed: November 2014

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 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 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.

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

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.

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 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 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

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 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!!

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...

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, 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.

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.

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

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.

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
