400th post! Oh my! :D
Anyway, this post is yet another late one. Just want to show you the "samples" I ordered from Sample Room about a month ago. Better late than never!
Cure Natural Aqua Gel
Celeteque Hydrolyzed Moisturizing Mist
Moringa-O2 Herbal Facial Toner
Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub
Read on to know more about these products!
One of the samples I was really excited to get was the Cure Natural Aqua Gel, Japan's No. 1 Exfoliator. I've heard a lot of people rave about this product, and since it's a bit pricey in my opinion, I made sure to catch SR's release of the sample.
"1 bottle sold every 12 seconds in Japan!" Come on, who wouldn't be interested in that product?! Inside the sample pack were five sachets, actually. I was so excited, I forgot to take a photo of the samples before using them. By the time I remembered, I had already used up two sachets. Haha. I like how gentle it is as an exfoliant. It's almost like water when spread on the skin. I have to say, though, that I'm still getting used to the 'squeaky feeling' that I get every time I rub this on my face, if you know what I mean. It's my first time using gel exfoliants with no scrub beads like this.
Next is a full-sized bottle of Celeteque's moisturizing mist.
At first I didn't find it that special. It's a mild moisturizer, almost like water. But then I realized that it's perfect for my morning routine. I usually skip applying moisturizer in the morning before applying my makeup to keep my face as matte as possible, but with this product, I can now moisturize in the morning without ending up with a too-dewy finish. It's perfect for really hot days and nights as well because it's really light on the face. I still prefer using a bit heavier moisturizers at night, though. Not really 'heavy,' but something a little heavier than this.
Next is Moringa-O2's malunggay toner, also in full size.
I like that it's alcohol free and doesn't sting my eyes when it gets near the area. It's not as powerful in cleansing as my previous and favorite toner, though. But the good thing is that it doesn't leave my face dry, making it perfect for use before makeup application.
This last item is something I'm loving. It's the Gluta-C body scrub.
Yes, full-sized again! As a body scrub, it's really effective! It leaves my skin smooth and soft every time. Regarding the whitening effect, I can't really say much, though, because I haven't noticed any significant change in my skin tone so far. But I don't mind. Whitening or not, I still really like this for its exfoliating power.
That's it for my 9th and 10th orders from Sample Room. As of writing, I've ordered my 11th and 12th batch of 'samples' already, and I'm actually currently waiting for my 12th to arrive (just ordered it the other day). So excited about it because all the items are full-sized!
