Belo Essentials AcnePro Pimple Gel | Third Step to Clear Skin System

30 May

I don’t buy over-the-counter anti-acne gel products because, from my experience, it does otherwise on my skin. I have tried a few and each time I ended up with bigger zits that have pus way deep inside my dermis! I will not name them anymore out of respect, but I tell you, my skin went cray cray with every use of these products. Glad that Sample Room released samples of Belo AcnePro Pimple Gel first so I could try it out first before actually purchasing one. I am willing to try out yet another anti-acne gel to see if it will make me break out or not.

Nivea Sun Protect and Bronze Spray SPF 20 | Safe and Tanned Under the Sun

28 Apr

I have not tried any sunblock that has a tanning effect on the skin. Sample Room made it possible for us sample roommates to get to try this! The Nivea Sun Protect and Bronze Spray SPF 20 is among the four sunblocks I brought with me to our Puerto Azul trip. Since this sunblock has the least SPF to it, I used it during the afternoon swim, 4:30pm onwards. Nivea Sun Protect and Bronze Spray SPF 20 Product Description (from Sample Room)

NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze spray combines reliable protection and a natural looking tan.

Immediate sun protection that gives you a natural, even tan. Protection or tan? Have both!

– Immediate UVA / UVB protection system prevents sunburn and premature skin aging – Contains natural plant extract that stimulates skin’s own melanin production – Supports skin’s natural tanning ability – Contains no self-tan – Non-sticky and water resistant – Skin compatibility dermatologically proven

How to use: – Shake well before use – Apply before sun exposure enough to give a visible layer rubbing in, let it dry then repeat to ensure adequate coverage – Reapply frequently especially after swimming and towelling – Do not spray onto the face – Even when protected avoid intensive midday sun (11am-3pm) and prolonged sun exposure – Keep babies and young children out of direct sunlight – Wear protective clothing and use sufficient sunscreen for unprotected areas – Avoid direct contact with fabrics and hard surfaces to prevent staining.

Full size: 200ml

Price: PHP 599

Moringa O2 Toner | The MultiVitamin Toner

16 Apr

Around December last year, hubby got this one together with the Moringa Therapy Oil from Sample Room. He is somehow getting the hang of ordering for both of us to use. But most of the time, he will just try and then leave them to me.

On to the review now…

The Moringa O2 Toner has the same bottle as that of the Gluta-C toner, except that this one has a green cap and the other has orange. The scent is very refreshing, like green tea, which is the signature scent of the Moringa O2 line. For only ₱89, you get 100ml of product. It lasts for a month or two, depending on your usage.

Moringa O2 toner

Product Description:

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

Out of the 163 posts I have here in https://writingismyhappyplace.wordpress.com, 23 posts are products I got from Sample Room.

I am such a big fan of this company because they let people experience convenience – online shopping, trying out new products, sampling the available products, reviewing the products tried, reading other people’s review and help each other in the process.

Because of this, I would like to be part of SampleRoom’s blogger circle. I support their idea of reaching out to Filipinos, one sample at a time. Letting us try products first to see if they work for us before we splurge changed the way we think about shopping. Aside from teaching us the value of money, Sample Room proves that each one of us is beautiful and they are providing products that will help us enhance our natural beauty…plus it offers products suited for the whole family!

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.

Vidal Sassoon Shampoo and Conditioner Premium Base Care Series

 

Product Description:

Vidal Sassoon Premium Base Care series moisturizes and infuses each hair strand with elasticity to reduce frizz and enable effortlessly lifted styles.
RTB / Technology:

–           Amino Salon Essence – Deeply penetrates into hair and targets and helps repair the most damaged parts of hair

–           Dual Surfactant Formula – Enables deep  moisturization of every strand of hair –  for  hair that’s manageable and easy to style

How to Use: Apply to hair and gently work up lather without rubbing the hair strand against each other.

Shampoo: 190ml for ₱199

Conditioner: 184ml  for ₱199

I recently had a trim because I felt that I needed to cut the ends to prevent split ends from happening. I am very glad that this combo made me feel like I came out of the salon every time I use them.
