Sample Room Haul #1

My first ever Sample Room haul! Was it worth it?




What is Sample Room? Sample Room is a site that offers free product sampling. Basically when you sign on, you get 100 free points which you can use to get samples. For every product you review, you get back the points you spent and an additional incentive point. So, for example, you use 30 points for a bottle of lotion, you get back 30+1 points once they've published your review.

Sample Room allows you to try different products, so you'll know what works for you and what doesn't. It is really a good way to save money since all you have to pay for is the shipping fee.

For these three items, I paid a total of 100 pesos shipping fee (as of June 9, minimum shipping fee is 110 pesos). Note: you're only allowed to get three samples per transaction. The fourth item is considered a new transaction (and therefore requires a separate shipping fee).

Olay Skin Whitening Bar with Vitamin C
20 points / 90g / Php 46.00
Sample Room

Immediately started using this after the unboxing, and my first impression - it lathers really well. The scent is very subtle, which I am mostly happy about. I sometimes prefer soaps with a stronger scent, but it's definitely a good option for those who put on lotions or creams after showering. My skin already felt smooth and moisturized from the very first time I used it.

Olay Skin Whitening Bar with Rose and Milk
20 points / 90g / Php 46.00
Sample Room
I switched up my white bar for this pink Rose-scented bar after a few days, and similar to the first one, it lathers and moisturizes well. The Olay Skin Whitening Bar claims to be a #OneWashWonder that will give you natural white skin from first use. It's true, my skin feels lighter, but isn't that the case after every shower since we wash off all the dirt and dust we've accumulated during the day? I'm being skeptical here since it might just be psychological. I will need to keep using these soaps to see if it really does make the skin whiter.
Sample Room
Zenutrients Aloe & Calendula Head to Toe Cream
50 points / 50g / 100g for Php 260.00
Sample Room
The Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Head to Toe Cream is a product I'd definitely buy. I've so far used it on my soles and my elbows, and it seems to be doing the trick. It's supposed to gently moisturize sensitive skin (perfect for those with psoriasis eczema), but it works on my skin as well. I really like its light scent; it's not too perfume-y, so I don't feel like there's too much chemicals mixed into the product.

Overall, I paid 100 pesos to receive 222 pesos worth of samples for free! I'll definitely continue using these products, plus I'll probably purchase the Olay bars when I run out. As for the cream, I personally think it's too pricey, but it really is a great product!

So, to cap this off, is Sample Room worth using? A huge YES!
Will do a new haul once I get my points back! :)
