Sample Room Haul #5

Finally got myself a new set of products from Sample Room!

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 items, I paid a total of 110 pesos shipping fee. That's it. Pretty great, right?? I picked three items from their website - Himalaya Herbals Complete Care Toothpaste, Belo Papaya Soap, and a Uniqlo Seamless T-Shirt. The fourth item was a freebie - a sample size of Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Rejuvenating Night Cream. 

Himalaya Herbals Complete Care Herbal Toothpaste
20 points | 40g | Php 39.00
Complete Care Herbal Toothpaste is an advanced herbal toothpaste that provides your teeth and gums a 12-hour protection from harmful germs. Its Gum Expert Formula with the herbal actives of Miswak, Neem, and Pomegranate helps reduce gum bleeding and prevents gum inflammation and plaque build up, keeping your teeth and gums clean, strong, and healthy.

I can't believe I waited this long to try Himalaya Herbals' toothpaste! It tastes like the toothpaste dentists use and I really like the clean feel it gives my teeth after brushing. It's not as strong as other branded toothpaste, but I definitely feel like it's helping make my gums healthier and my teeth stronger. I will definitely purchase this again!

Belo Papaya Soap
10 points | 65g | Php 29.75

Harnessed from the power of nature, the new Belo Essentials Papaya not only brightens the skin, but also exfoliates with jojoba beads and helps the skin to be clear from pimples and other impurities with Beetox. Plus, it has an amazing and unique fruity scent that’s long-lasting and fresh.

When I got hold of the soap, the first thing I did was to smell it. To be honest, I thought the scent was really strong so I didn't like it at first. But when applied, it comes out subtle, so I continued using it. I like how it feels really gentle on the skin. The size is really good for its price as well, so great job to Belo for coming out with such affordable and effective product!

Uniqlo Women's AIRism Seamless Short Sleeve T-Shirt
102 points | 1 pc. coupon (to be claimed in store) | Php 590.00

Uniqlo Women’s AIRism Seamless Short Sleeve T-Shirt is a comfy innerwear that provides a gentle feel and stays invisible under an outer layer for that neat, stylish look even with light warm-weather outfits. With a powerful self-deodorization feature and a special breathable knit construction, it helps prevent and release sweaty odor from the inside for that daily cool and stay-fresh feel.

I like the fact that the Uniqlo Women’s AIRism Seamless Short Sleeve T-Shirt is very breathable. It's very affordable as well, though I think it's more for layering. I am having a little problem with the fit as it is tight-fitting and my unwanted curves are visible. But other than that, it does serve its purpose - it stays invisible under clothing, it's comfortable to wear, and it is breathable. So yeah, if you're looking for something like that, this one definitely works.

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Rejuvenating Night Cream
Formulated with PhytoCellTecTM and Aqua-Shuttle Technology, Céleteque Advanced Anti-Aging Rejuvenating Night Cream provides an advanced action in renewing skin cells, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and hydrating the skin for that smooth, youthful skin in just 4 weeks.

I don't really have a lot to say about this one since I only got a 5ml sample. Can't really tell if it can reduce wrinkles or whatever - all I can say is that I really liked the scent and how light it felt on my face. 

Overall, I received Php 658.75 worth of products and only paid Php 110 for shipping. Visit sampleroom.ph so you can try before you buy like I did! :)
