Sample Room Haul #4

New month, new products to try!

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.
Sample Room 4
For these three items, I paid a total of 110 pesos shipping fee. 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).

For this unboxing, here are the items up for review:
Sample Room 4
Lux Magical Spell Body Wash
30 points | 100ml | Php 55.00
Sample Room 4
Lux Magical Spell is infused with the perfume essence of black orchids in every bottle. It is crafted by perfume experts from Paris, London, and New York, so you can feel fabulous as you bathe with perfume everyday.

Sure, the Lux Magical Spell Body Wash smells great, especially during shower. But after washing it off, most of the scent gets washed away too. It's one of those products where you really have to use a lot to get the most benefits, plus I'm kind of having doubts about its cleaning properties. They're really all about the smell here, so I'm not sure if it really cleans the body. It feels more of a perfume than anything, so I don't think I'll be buying it again soon.
Sample Room 4
NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner Whitening
40 points | 100ml | Php 124.00
Sample Room 4
NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner Whitening is the first rinse-off skin conditioner that gives silky, soft and smooth skin without the sticky feeling. It is activated by water that immediately absorbs into the skin and leaves a nourishing and caring film to keep your skin moisturized. NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner Whitening is available for normal, dull, and dry skin types.

So basically, it's like hair conditioner, but for your skin. At first, I thought it was weird, but now that I think about it, it shouldn't be that surprising. I mean, we use hair conditioner after shampoo, so I guess it's high time a skin conditioner becomes available to the market. It's such a unique product to offer, so to be honest, right now, I have one word for it - inconvenient. This just means that after I wash off all the soap from my body, I still have to apply the In-Shower Conditioner only to wash it off again. It's definitely not recommended for those always rushing in the mornings or already used to applying lotion after shower since it's really just the same thing. Although, the skin does feel soft after applying and it promises more radiant skin tone, softer and smoother skin with regular use. So if you love taking your time in the showers, you'll probably like this product too.
Sample Room 4
LipIce Sheer Color Strawberry - Color Changeable Lipbalm 
40 points | 1.2grams | Php 87
Sample Room 4
Out of everything, this color changeable lipbalm is my favorite. It glides on clear and gradually change to a natural sheer pink. It has gentle beeswax for long lasting hydration, which I need because my lips are so dry most of the time! I actually use lip balms on a daily basis, and if I'm going to be buying more lip balms in the future, I'm definitely going for this one. It helps that it also contains effective anti-oxidant Vitamin E to soften the lips and protect it against the harmful environment. There is nothing I don't like about this product. A++!
Sample Room 4
So overall, I received Php 266.00 worth of products for 110 pesos. But from the three items I've tried, I'll only be re-purchasing the lip balm. No thanks on the other two products just because I still like my Olay Skin Whitening Bar better. Haha :)

Will do a new haul once I get my points back!
