PINCHme BOX #1

Tuesday, July 11, 2017



After 2 months of being a member, I finally got my first sample box from Pinchme! It sure does have interesting products that are worth a try.




So, here is the list of the products I received:

1. Pure Leaf Home Brewed Teas - I received the Iced Black Tea with Peach flavor, and it was by far my favorite! It smelled so good like a real peach and tasted like one too! I love how it doesn't taste bitter or too sweet. Just the right flavor!




2. 100% Marula Oil & Organic Shea Butter Fragrance-Free Sensitive Skin Body Lotion w/ White Tea Extract - It was my first time trying a Shea Moisture product, and I loved it! I am always a fan of Fragrance-free and natural products with no harmful ingredients. I love how gentle this lotion was to my sensitive skin and how it gives my skin the moisture and protection it deserves. 



3. Purina ONE® SmartBlend® True Instinct Grain-Free Formula With Real Beef & Sweet Potato Dry Dog Food - How great it is to provide your dog the best dog food you can possibly feed them? This grain-free dog food was made with real beef that contains protein and energy active adult dogs need. Dogs loved it! And my Pinchme box included a fantastic coupon so I can get another pack of up to $12.99 value!



4. Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller - This is a surprise additional product included in my Pinchme Box! This comes in handy for my husband's coats/jackets. However, I am a little disappointed about this because when I used it, it did not entirely remove the lints from my husband's clothes.


Overall, I am still happy with my first Pinchme Box! Who doesn't like freebies, right? Not a member yet? Sign up here: https://www.pinchme.com

My First Sample Source Box

Tuesday, June 6, 2017




I always love the idea "try before you buy" and this was exactly the purpose of SampleSource -  another platform that sends their members' free samples of makeup, beauty care, household cleaning, even food, and snacks so they can try it and make smart shopping decisions. I recently join and got my first box of samples last month. What's inside? Read on.

After registering to SampleSource and completing your profile, you will be eligible to choose samples you would like to try that match your profile, and these samples are usually available during Spring, Summer, and Fall. They will email you once samples are available and you need to act fast since samples are only available while supplies last!


I was fortunate enough to pick 6 samples to try, and these are the following:
  • Method Laundry Detergent
  • RepHresh Vaginal Gel
  • Trojan Lubricant
  • Beyond Cereal Protein Bar
  • Clairol Root Touch-Up Hair Color - Coupon
  • Breathe Right Nasal Strip



I loved everything inside the box and was excited to try them all when I received them. I already used the products from this samplesource box except for the Trojan Lubricants. So here are my honest opinions about each of these items.

1. Method Laundry Detergent in Ginger Mango Scent


I never heard of this brand before, and this was the first time I saw a detergent in a recyclable 240 ml bottle that looks like more of a feminine wash or a hand soap. But I was impressed by how this detergent works from its smell to its cleaning power! This brand offers a variety of scent, and I was able to try the Ginger Mango one. The combined smell of ginger and ripe mango created a clean, mild and sweet scent that smells great! With its naturally derived ingredients and without the harsh chemicals from other detergents, you'll be amazed at how it works tough on the dirt of your clothes.  I would highly recommend this product to those who are planning to go all natural not only with foods but also with detergents.

2. RepHresh Vaginal Gel


Everyone has their first on everything, right? Yep, it was my first to try this RepHresh Vaginal Gel. I felt uncomfortable when I first saw this and thought it might be complicated to use. But this product came with an instruction sheet, and I found out that it was not really that hard to use. It's also safe to use as it has been clinically tested and does not contain any fragrances, colors, deodorizers, or drugs fo any kind. It was also not messy to use and can be used anytime though it is not recommended during your period. This gel claims to maintain healthy vaginal pH that in turn can help reduce the risk of vaginal issues. It also claims to eliminate vaginal odor and relieves feminine discomfort. As far as I can tell, it was a good first-time experience for me and might consider using one of this again.

3. Trojan Lubricant - Chain Reaction


Unfortunately, I can't say more about this product as I haven't used it yet. So, I will just quote what it says on the packaging: "Sensations keeps changing for non-stop thrills." For more information about this product and other reviews, you can visit Trojan Lubricants website.

4. Quest Beyond Cereal Protein Bar - Cinnamon Roll Flavor



I won't deny it, this cinnamon roll protein bar was the first thing I grabbed from my samplesource box, and it was gone in an instant! I always love the cinnamon smell and the sweetness of its taste and Quest perfectly incorporated all the goodness of a cinnamon roll in this cereal protein bar. Although it tastes like a treat and a dessert, it has all the protein you need, and it has a decent nutritional profile for health-conscious people's preference. This is also the first Quest product that uses Allulose, a revolutionary sweetener found in nature that offers all the taste and texture of traditional sugar, but with only 1/10th of the calories! With this protein bar, you can eat a sweet without guilt. :)

5.  Clairol Root Touch-Up Hair Color (Coupon)




This was one of the products I was excited about. I love hair color and regularly use them since I often grow gray hairs. This coupon just came right in time as my gray hairs are coming out from the roots. I immediately claimed and used it.



I chose the Clairol Root Touch-Up in Burgundy color since it's the last hair color I applied to my hair. The box comes with an applicator brush, permanent color creme, color activating lotion, a small mixing bowl, and an instruction sheet. 


Preparation wise, it's the same as other hair colorants. It has a strong chemical smell which I dislike. The color matches my current hair color which was excellent, and the results are significantly delivered. The color lasted for about a month.


6. Breathe Right Nasal Strip - 2 strips


These nasal strips were perfect for my husband since he has nasal congestion and nasal snoring at night. I can say that it's effective since it reduces his snoring and it relieves his nighttime nasal congestion. And it's good to know that it's drug-free. We can now both sleep better.πŸ˜€πŸ˜

Overall, I love all the samples I received from this box. But the things I will for sure buy upon trying are the Quest Beyond Cereal Protein Bar, Method Laundry Detergent and the Breathe Right Nasal Strips for my husband.

That's about my first SampleSource box, and I am now looking forward to receiving the next sample box coming this Summer!

My First Daily Goodie Box! (FB Won)

Thursday, June 1, 2017


Yay, I finally received my first amazing box of samples from Daily Goodie Box! Want to know what's inside the May Box I received and how I find each one of them after trying? Check it out!


So for you who doesn't know what Daily Goodie Box yet, it's a platform that sends a box of free goodies in exchange for reviews on each of the products in the box. Everything is free, even the shipping! And there's no need for credit card details, ever! Not a member of Daily Goodie Box yet? Sign up here: https://dailygoodiebox.com/

If you ask: "Does all member get a Goodie Box?" Well, they are trying to give out as much as possible to all members. However, it is not guaranteed you will receive one. According to their website, many factors come into play. Like for example, if you previously received a Goodie Box and you have completed all your product reviews, you may have a higher chance of being selected to get another box. But of course, they will also consider if your demographics match the brands and the products. They can't offer you a box with pet or baby related products if you don't have either of the two, right? Also, you can increase your chances of getting selected by showing interest in every month's products by viewing them from the 'Products' page and regularly visiting your 'Message' area. From there, they will know that you are really interested in the products and in the program itself. Moreover, keep your shipping information up to date! It'd be a bummer if you did not even provide a shipping address in the first place.

One more tip from them, follow them on their social media accounts like, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and actively engage with them! They are actively giving out Bonus Goodie Boxes to those who interact with them especially on their Facebook page! That's how I won mine.πŸ’—πŸ˜€πŸ˜



Yes! Just by commenting on one of their Facebook Posts, I got my very first Goodie Box! They are very active in posting on Facebook and giving bonus Goodie Boxes, so if you don't want to miss any of their posts, set them as "See First" from their page.



So, what's with my first ever Goodie Box? Well, some amazing samples! Below are the 10 products I have in my box:

1. ONA Treats - Cookies and Bars
2. Prince of Peace - 100% Natural Ginger Candy
3. Andalou Naturals Hyaluronic DMAE Lift & Firm Cream
4. Goviter - Viter Energy Mints 
5. Natralia - Eczema Body Wash & Shampoo
6. Kicking Horse Coffee - Kick A** Ground Coffee
7. Georgia Grinders - Creamy Peanut Butter
8. Swago - Cologne Wipes For Men
9. Volo Vitamins - Energy Stickpacks
10. Tiger Balm - Pain Relieving Patch

So, after trying each of every one of these samples, which some are full-size products by the way, here are my honest reviews and opinions:

ONA Treats - Cookies and Bars - 3/5


I like the packaging of the ONA Treats Cookies as it's cute and colorful. I also love the fact that it's Paleo Friendly, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, and contain No Refined Sugars which would be a healthy snack. The taste was a little bit bitter like dark chocolate, but you can get used to it especially when you are trying to eat more healthy snacks. It looks delicious too!


Prince of Peace - 100% Natural Ginger Candy - 5/5



This candy arrived just in time when I was suffering from a cough. I find the taste soothing, not too sweet with the kick of a real ginger. It also calms me when I am feeling nauseous. I totally loved its ginger sweetness. I tried putting it once to my tea, and it added a great flavor to it! And oh, I love how they are individually wrapped, making it easier to carry where you're on the go!


Andalou Naturals Hyaluronic DMAE Lift & Firm Cream - 4/5


First off, I didn't actually like the smell of this product. However, in the brighter side, it did brighten my skin in just the first use. It actually has that firming and tightening power. It's creamy but non-greasy at all. It made my face smooth and younger looking! Too bad, the sample was only for one use (but I did manage to used it up to 3 times😁😁😁)


Goviter - Viter Energy Mints - 4/5




These tasty little mints are packed with flavor and caffeine. It gave me an extra boost to do the things I have to do and give me extra when I fell short of energy. The taste was great! It goes from sweet to the bitter taste that's exactly what I need for fresh breath and an additional kick of energy. The sample I received had 3 pieces medicine tablet-like candies. My husband and I already ate 2, so I only have one left for the picture below.😁😁😁




This Body Wash and Shampoo soothes my scalp and skin's itchiness. Although I don't have Eczema, I sometimes suffer extreme itchiness in my scalp and some part of my skin. It's gentle on the skin and does not dry it out.  It has a faint smell, which is okay. It leaves my skin smooth.



First of all, the smell of this coffee is terrible that you just don't want to try it out. But I did try it once, it's definitely tasty but not that strong as it claims for a dark coffee. But you can simply add more grounds of it to make it as strong as you want it to be. I won't probably buy this coffee again. Just the smell of it makes me want to puke, sorry!



I love that they offer pouches for this peanut butter. It's easy to use and can be carried around on a road trip or picknick. It was indeed a creamy peanut butter! I love that it has natural ingredients with the right amount of salt that made it even tastier. It's not made sweet like other peanut butter I tasted which is good. This might become my new peanut butter choice! 



I had my husband tried it, and he was impressed like I was. It smelled really good and was perfect for him as he was always on the go in the morning. This is perfect for busy guys who still want to smell good. Easy to use with the fragrance that can get you to the day!

Volo Vitamins - Energy Stick packs - 3/5



This vitamin will come in handy when you need extra energy for the day. It's packed with real vitamins, fruits, and natural energy boosters. Although I didn't like its taste, which smelled and tasted like medicine by the way when I mixed it with my favorite juice, the taste tamed down a little, so it's bearable for me to drink. The good thing about it was, it actually did gave me energy for my whole day of stuff ahead. I got the berry and citrus flavor which can both go with my favorite juices.

 Tiger Balm - Pain Relieving Patch - 5/5



Most of the time I will experience extreme muscle & back pain, plus sore legs and feet. So this patch is an excellent addition to relieving the pain. I used this sample pain relieving patch on my back, and it did work well in relieving my back pain. No heat or burning sensation like other patches do, but it worked well and was indeed effective. It felt cold when put on my back but only for a couple of minutes. I love how it acted fast and made my back pain disappear! I might say it won't stay as long as you wanted it. In some parts, it can easily come off. But one more positive about this product is that it doesn't yank the skin when you pull them off as other patches do.


So, that was my awesome box of goodies and my reviews of each! Overall, I can say that this box was by far the most amazing sample box I received! It contains a variety of sample products including some full-sized items that not only I can enjoy but my whole family as well! My favorite was the Prince of Peace Ginger Candy that soothes my throat and gives my tea a distinctive flavor. The next thing I love from this box was the Georgia Grinders Creamy Peanut Butter that was perfect not only for my morning bread but also in between snacking throughout the day. Most of the products from this box I would definitely buy more and recommend to others. I definitely would love to receive more Goodie box to explore new, different products and share my valuable experience and opinion to other consumers like me. Thank you for letting me try one box!
