Ofra Lipstick in 202 | Classy + Modern Red Lips

Glamourbox subscribers were given the chance to try out lippies from a new brand called, Ofra. I received this in my Beauty SOS Glamourbox. I am not so sure with the availability of this particular brand in the market but for sure it is available online in Glamourbox.

Beach Hut MAX SPF 75++ Clear Spray Sunblock | Sunblock for Every Lifestyle

25 Nov

For someone who stay indoors most of the time, it may be quite weird that I use sunblock everyday. Receiving this full size sample of Beach Hut Clear Spray Sunblock from the July BDJ Box made me uber happy because I have a reserved sunblock already! This is almost like the Nivea Invisible Cooling Mist I got from Sample Room. I already used it up therefore I get to use this next. Actually, this is what I brought with me during our last family trip. Beach Hut MAX SPF 75++ Clear Spray Sunblock Review on this when you click Continue Reading. Continue reading

Vidal Sassoon Shampoo and Conditioner Premium Base Care Series | I got Sassooned!

21 Nov

I am one of those girls who got excited when Vidal Sassoon is finally back in the Philippines. I was even more excited when I found out that Sample Roompartnered with them. So when I saw that Sample Room offers a full size sample of Vidal Sassoon products, I gladly gave in. Though I am not a VIP member but I was able to try the Vidal Sassoon Shampoo and Conditioner Premium Base Care Series for 104 points. It was heavier than the usual rate so I paid ₱130 for shipping. I also added Godiva lotion for 25 points to make use of the ₱130 (which I will review next time).

It arrived two days after my payment and it came in a P&G paper bag inside the regular brown paper bag. The bottles look classy and sophisticated in the uniquely shaped bottle of maroon (shampoo) and burgundy (conditioner). It opens and locks easily for usage and less spillage.

MoringaO2 Malunggay Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil | Oil Healthy!

15 Nov

I am such a believer of Malunggay because of the benefits it gives. I am a lactating mother who takes 1-2 capsules of Malunggay Life Oil to aid in helping my body produce more milk. In lieu with that, I am beginning to see the value of having moringa in the products I use.

One moringa product I love is the moisturizer from the same company as this herbal therapy oil I’m about to review — MoringaO2. I saw their event in Instagram and found out that there is a new product to be added to the malunggay family — MoringaO2 Malunggay Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil. This is a bit mouthful and it explicitly says what this is for. And when I saw it in Mercury Drug almost a week after that, I helped myself to one.

Carbtrim Iced Tea Mix in Lemon Flavor | Be Fearless about Carb-loaded Food

7 Nov

For someone who loves to eat carbs but doesn’t want to gain more weight, Carbtrim is the best bet! I was really intrigued with this ever since I saw it in the commercial of Angelica Panganiban.

I was happy when I saw this in Sample Room! Only the lemon flavor was available but it was alright with me. Fortunately, even if I am not a VIP member, my points were able to sample both Digestics and this. In addition to this, I got two boxes of both products! Thanks to Sample Room’s generosity!

CarbTrim Iced Tea Mix (Lemon Flavor)

Product Description

CarbTrim works by preventing the alpha-amylase enzymes in our body system from breaking down carbohydrates from starchy food (e.g. rice, bread, pasta) into sugar. It reduces the glycemic Index and caloric impact from food; minimizing the conversion of starch-to-sugar-to-fat and thus help in reducing body weight, fat mass and waist and thigh circumference.

Carbtrim turns blocked carbohydrates into long-chain fiber. Since the human body does not absorb fiber, it just passes through our digestive system and comes out as waste.

Carbtrim should be taken before or during meals. Since it’s in a beverage format, the active ingredients, Phase 2 white kidney bean extract, works by blocking immediately the carbs taken in. For best results, drink Carbtrim with every meal with moderate to heavy carbs.

Instructions: Just add the contents of 1 sachet to a glass (250ml) of cold or hot water. Contains natural tea extract, stir until dissolved and enjoy! Drink one to three times a day, preferably before meals.

Full size: 1 box = 6 sachets

Price: PHP 144 / box

Sample Size: 2 boxes (12 sachets)
