Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion 7-day challenge

I am a bit curios with my BDJ coupon from Jergens it says they give a free gift pack when you take the Jergens 7-day challenge. So I one time I’m in the supermarket I went to get one, honestly just so I can do the challenge and get my free gift pack. Well I’m glad I did because now I am also a believer with this lotion.

To tell you honestly I am not a fan of lotions. I am so lazy to slather thick smooth liquid all over my body hence I having dry skin. More likely I hate the sticky feeling after putting it.

Then comes Jergens. I never thought that Jergens has improved so much. It has lots off variants already which tackles different kinds of skin problems. My titas and titos abroad would always gave us Jergens lotion as pasalubong.

Since I am suffering with dry hands now from the super cold airconditioning of our office I tried this super handy pocket size variant of Jergens in Ultra healing and I am so hooked.

It just not give me smooth and moisturized hands its also smells so good but not too overpowering. It immediately made my dry hands super soft. I love that its not sticky even if I get out of the office for client visits. Other brands tend to be feel sticky at the end of the day. I am trying it now on my dry callused feet and its giving me the best results its making it super soft.

Definitely a staple now in my dresser and one of my favorites again.

After posting this review in Jergens facebook page. I get a message from them to get my shipping details and after 1 day I got my free gift set. But now more than the gift set I am so glad I found Jergens again.

New Freebies Haul for February

February Goodies

It’s the love month again. Happy Valentines Day everyone! I envy those who have dates today cause unfortunately my date (hubby) is too far away to celebrate it with me (He’s an OFW – Overseas Filipino Worker) and so I am here at home with my two babies  watching tv and surfing the net just to pass the time. It’s our first valentine’s day as a couple (as in first ever even before we got married) and it’s so sad that we are apart I’m getting emotional. So instead of self-pitying I just decided to post my freebies haul from Sample Room and BECAUSE Inc.

I got the packages  just a day after I sent my payment for shipping. It was a very fast transaction even though the courier had a hard time finding my address. I got my packages in good condition. Kudos to XEND!

The Cream Factory SCRUB-in-a-TUB

The Cream Factory SCRUB-in-a-TUB

Time to check the packages content. Lets start with what I got from BECAUSE Inc. I was contacted by Miss Anna Fernando of Because Inc. by my Facebook account and invited me to review their newly launched product early January. I was invited to go to their office so I could pick the variant that I want to review. Unfortunately my OB won’t let me travel and put me into full bed rest because I had high risk of premature labor. So I contacted them and ask if it can be shipped, I was willing to shoulder the shipping fee and they accommodate my request. I picked SCRUB-in-a-TUB Yummy Goat’s Milk with Almond. Thanks to Miss Anne Vitug for assisting me.

SCRUB-in-a-TUB Yummy exfoliates using cocoa bean bits, awakening your skin. It is pure indulgence for those occasions when you deserve an extra special treat.

Next is the loot I got from Sample Room, this is my second haul from them and like before I am very much happy with the transaction, super fast. Here are what I picked from them:

Whisper Cottony Long

Whisper Cottony Long

Get cottony comfort and 100% leakage protection with Whisper Cottony Clean. Now, the Whisper protection you love has been combined with the comfort of cotton in the new Whisper Cottony Clean. Its Whisper’s softest pad ever so you won’t have to worry about irritation. The New Whisper Cottony Clean also gives you all-side leakage protection and better absorption through its Circles of Protection, an all-new channel design in the front, back and sides that help direct the flow of your period and prevent leakage. So you can stay active or even dare to do the things you couldn’t do before during your period!

A pack of 7 pcs cost Php 39.00 on retail stores and groceries and I got a pack, I just gave birth and so I can use now.

Sappe Beauti Drink (L-Glutathione 100 mg)

Sappe Beauti Drink (L-Glutathione 100 mg)

Next is Sappe Beauti Drink (L-Glutathione 100 mg). Its a tasty apple drink that has L-Gluthatione added to lighten the skin. L-Gluthatione are known anti-oxidants that has a side effect of  inhibiting formation of melanin pigments through Tyrosinase activityor melanin production. Recommended daily intake is 100 mg per day which is 1 bottle and results can be seen in as early as 30 days

One bottle of 360 ml cost Php 35.00. Sampleroom indicates in their site that I’ll get 1 bottle but instead got 2. I was so happy with it though ofcourse I wouldn’t get a proper result with just 2 bottles. I need to do a 30 day challenge to know if it really works but its very tasty and I am always looking forward drinking this.

Calchews in Chocolate and Caramel flavor

Calchews in Chocolate and Caramel flavor

Third loot is Calchews, the first calcium supplement in the market in soft chew form that offers an easy and delicious way of getting one’s recommended daily dose of calcium.

It’s the only calcium brand that is enriched not only with Vitamin D3 but also with Vitamin K – vitamins essential for optimum bone health.

Calcium is one of the most important minerals that our body needs. It is essential to maintain strong bones and healthy lifestyles.  It has also been found to contribute to weight management, strong teeth, and helps with PMS and mood swings.

Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K both provide the perfect combination for a more superior Calcium Supplement. Vitamin D3 is essential for proper calcium absorption that helps prevent bone diseases such as osteomalacia and osteoporosis.

Vitamin K ensures that the full benefit of calcium is directed to where our body needs it most – our bones. Vitamin K is the vitamin that binds Calcium to our bones.

CalChews soft chew form makes it easier and more convenient to take. It comes in Rich Chocolate and Creamy Caramel Flavors making sure that you always get your daily calcium requirement in a delicious way!

A box have 15 pcs of chewable and a box cost Php 180.00 in drug stores. Recommended daily intake is 1 chews a day for daily calcium requirements. I got 2 boxes in different flavors and I love the taste of both flavors. I have to keep reminding my self that I can only take 1 chew a day. So tasty.

Céleteque Advanced Anti Aging (Anti Wrinkle Ultra Hydrating Cleansing Oil)

Céleteque Advanced Anti Aging (Anti Wrinkle Ultra Hydrating Cleansing Oil)

Lastly CÉLETEQUE DermoScience™ Advanced Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Ultra-Hydrating Cleansing Oil. It cleanses the face by removing dirt and make-up while moisturizing the skin. It has Dual Vitamin Regenerating Complex that promotes healthy tissue regeneration, resulting to increased elasticity and moisture levels. This helps in firming the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.

I didn’t order this I guess its just an extra loot for valentines day anyway I got a sample size of it I guess its 10 ml  just enough for 1 use and it really removes makeup and dirt from my face. It comes in 2 full sizes, 50 ml cost Php 199.00 and 100 ml cost Php 369.00.

So that’s it my free haul last February. Sorry for the late upload since I just got used from having a baby and taking care of an infant takes a lot of energy. But I guess its one of the things a mother has to go through. Even if its a pain in the ass its still a very rewarding thing in the world.

Till next time everyone.

Sample Room: Try before you Buy

Image

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I post something in my blog been busy with left and right shopping for the holidays. I’ve been all around the town to get something for my love ones of course hunting for bargains and sales. So anyway here I am to blog about a site that I have stumble upon while I was surfing the net and reading my co-bloggers post.

Everyone wishes they can sample first a product before buying it not only on food but also on cosmetics, skin and hair care, and even wellness products. This is to test if these products works for us, you see not all individuals have the same genetics structure and so we are unique from one another. One product may work for someone while it don’t to some. But sometimes it’s such a hassle to ask for samples in stores specially when the sales lady is so eager with their sales talk and all. And so I am so glad that a site have answered our prayers for letting us have a sample of a product to try before buying it in the market for free.

The Sample Room is the first ever sampling site in the Philippines where you can have a sample product absolutely free and lets you review them to share your thoughts and opinion on the product that you avail on their site. They have diverse brand partners both local and international brands and is still growing until now. Unlike subscription boxes that surprises you with different products, you can choose a product on their site that you want to try according to your skin type and preference. Availing of products depends on points that members acquire from reviewing products, referring friends and buying points (coming soon). Upon registration 100 points is given to the member so one can start having samples and after paying the amount for shipping and handling fee. The product will be sent to your home  or shipping address. The member needs to write a review following the posting guidelines on the site to regain back the points used and received more points. So basically that is how it all works.

Look what came in the mail.

I got my first sample products 2 days after I paid the shipping and handling fee which cost PHP 100. I paid through over-the-counter local bank deposit at Banco De Oro and inform Sample Room about my payment through e-mail attaching a photo of the bank deposit slip.

I choose 2 products which are both in full size. In my opinion it’s a steal since if I buy those products in the market It’ll cost me more than Php 100.

Here are the products that I choose from the site. I’ll give you the product description written from the site.

Céleteque Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream

Céleteque Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream

The initial offering of the CÉLETEQUE DermoScience™ Maternity Line, the Anti-Stretch Mark Cream is OB-Gynecologist-certified safe for pregnant women. The Cream has Elastonyl that helps protect and restore the tone and elasticity of the skin; Alchemilla vulgaris extract or Lady’s Mantle that provides firming properties; and Shea Butter that promotes strengthening of the skin and provides deep moisturization.

Full size of Celeteque Anti-Stretch mark cream is 100 ml and cost Php 445 in the market and I got the full size to try it. This product is very timely for me since I got old and new stretch marks from my previous and current pregnancy. So I badly need a regimen to minimize the old ones and prevent having new ones too.

Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner

Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner

Moringa-Ocombines powerful multi-vitamins, antioxidants and minerals from Malunggay, Olive Oil and Omega to deeply nourish and moisturize dry and sensitive skin.

Moringa-O2 is best recommended for those with the following skin conditions:

  • For dry and sensitive skin
  • For itchy skin
  • Aging skin
  • Skin asthma and Keratosis Pilaris

KEY BENEFITS:

  • Gently cleanses residual dirt without drying
  • May help reduce pimples
  • Stimulates cell regeneration and skin renewal
  • Minimizes pores
  • Improves skin elasticity and suppleness
  • Skin lightening

Full size of Moringa-O2 Herbal Facial Toner is 100 ml and cost Php 89.75, also comes in full size. I’m currently in search for a great toner right now since I can’t get my hands on any Clerasil toner anymore.

So I got 2 products which have a total cost of PHP 534.75 and it only cost me 100 pesos for shipping and handling fee. I get to try 2 product and write a review about them if they work for me. Not only will it help me save but also my reviews that I will write on the site will help other people if the product is worth buying.

You could register on the site by clicking this Sample Room or you can send me your e-mail address at vharaine@hotmail.com so I could refer you to join the site. Thanks for reading this post and hope it helps. Will try to blog more with the reviews I had with some of the products that I got from the boxes. Till next time.
