Samples Received & Redeemed: April 2016

At last, it's time for that post of the month that accumulates samples and some cheap buys included. Sometimes, it really amazes me when I walked into a run-down and small looking Giant hypermarket, only to find really cheap shower gels which makes me wonder, how come I never saw these cheap buys before when I browsed around inside? Anyways, here's a look at what I've gotten my grubby hands on for the month of April :D

Zen Garden
  • Zen Garden Goat Milk Bath & Shower Gel @ 300ml (left)
  • Zen Garden Lavender Bath & Shower Gel @ 300ml (right)

Goat Milk retails at S$1.00 per 300ml bottle while Lavender retails at S$2.00 per bottle, if you were to buy the bundle pack of 1 litre and the 300ml bottle together, you only need to pay S$3.00 altogether. Because I haven't tried this brand before, I didn't dare to buy the bundle pack in case my skin has an allergic reaction to it.

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: No samples for redemption.

The Body Shop Drops of Light Pure Clarifying  Foam Wash & Black Musk Shower Gel
  • Pure Clarifying Foam Wash @ 125ml (left)
  • Black Musk Shower Gel @ 250ml (right)

Well, I've tested a small amount of the Pure Clarifying Foam Wash right inside the retail shop itself, and I dare say, the skin on my left hand looks brighter when compard to the right hand. The shower gel is because I don't use soap bars at all due to sensitive skin.

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: I don't recall seeing sample sachets for shower gels, but for the foam wash, you can try asking. As I've tried it inside the retail shop, I'm guessing there's no sample sachet for the foam wash as well.

Essential Deep Cleansing Care
  • Essential Deep Cleansing Care Shampoo @ 15ml (left)
  • Essential Deep Cleansing Care Conditioner @ 15ml (right)

Well, I forgot where I saw the sample ad from. But no doubt, these samples are kinda "late" after I bought the trial-size version almost 6 months back LOL

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to and fill out your details. The samples will be mailed to your mailbox and it's while stocks last. Hurry~

Creighton Balance Sensual
  • Creighton Manga & Papaya Balance Bath & Shower @ 500ml (left)
  • Creighton Cherry & Wild Fig Sensual Bath & Shower @ 500ml (right)

Creighton Cocoon Revive
  • Creighton Vanilla & Macadamia Cocoon Bath & Shower @ 500ml (left)
  • Creighton Raspberry & Pomegranate Revive Bath & Shower @ 500ml (right)

There's a new Venus Beauty outlet opened at my neighborhood, so I went for a look-see and happened to see these 4 bottles retailing at S$6.95 per bottle, which is rather affordable. I debated for 2 nights and went back on the 3rd day and got all 4 flavours. And I regret not! The scents are heavenly~ xD

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: No samples for redemption.

Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash
  • Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash @ 200ml

Well, a visit to The Sample Store's "Free Samples" page reminded me of how long I've been deprived of writing anything on this blog. NEVER AGAIN!!!

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: The last I check, the "Redeem" button is still in blue, which means there should still be samples up for grabs. Hurry~

Crème Simon
  • Crème Simon Brightening Detox Gentle Double Exfoliation Scrub @ 5ml (left)
  • Crème Simon Crème Universelle @ 5ml (right)

Happened to know about 2 samples available for redemption at Crème Simon's website, but you need to register an account on their website first.

Just a warning, while attempting to check out my samples, the website kept giving me weird error messages and I though it didn't went through. Tried to re-request again and the website stated that I've already requested for the samples. If you encountered the same thing as I've mentioned, try re-requesting once again and it should inform you that you've already requested for the sample. Delivery took less than a week, so no harm in waiting.

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to, scroll down until you see the above 2 products, there will be a "REQUEST FOR SAMPLE" button that is clickable. The samples will be mailed to your mailbox.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer
  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ @ 15ml

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Also redeemable at The Sample Store, under the "Free Samples" tab. Same thing, it's while stocks last. So, hurry~

  • Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion @ 14g (left)
  • Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser @ 29ml (middle)
  • Cetaphil Daylong SPF 50+ PA++++ (right)

Anyway, I got my samples as Cetaphil was organizing some sort of online FB contest. But you can just skip the contest and get the samples instead, if you don't wish to join.

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to and fill in your details. The samples will be mailed to your mailbox.

Hada Labo
  • Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion @ 2ml (left)
  • Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Water Gel @ 2g (right)

Hada Labo wasn't organizing anything on FB, I was just bored and randomly surfing around. Saw Hada Labo website has samples, and requested for them xD

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to, on the right of the website, you'll see "Free Samples" flag. Doesn't matter which sample you picked, you'll get one of each when they mailed it out to you.

  • Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer @ 5ml

I don't really recall how I got to know about this sampling activity for Jergens, but the website is still working and it's while stocks last. Hurry~

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to, fill in your details and the sample will be delivered to your mailbox.

That's it for April's samples and cheap buys. See you all in this segment next month in May~ Walalala~
