Samples Received & Redeemed: May 2016

By Pu Niao Riih @PuNiaoPuNiao
First off, my humble apologies for taking so long to write up this monthly post. My Canon camera is in the midst of douche-ness since I've been trying to charge it since 2 to 3 weeks ago, but it time, the battery bar just refused to fill up. It's not even charging at all, despite having the correct charger and the switch is on. Maybe I need to consider buying those cheapo charging wires that can be bought cheaply from Box Boss that you can find in neighborhood shopping malls. Anyway, I ended up giving up on the camera and used my Samsung S6 for the photo-taking of all these samples instead.
Post It

Sometimes, I think Post-It isn't really actually giving out any samples at all, the package is always so flat it makes me wonder if there's anything useful inside.

The sampling activity for this time is the Post-It flags, which I personally think are rather miserable, to be honest. It states 6, which means 3 of each size, which still boils down to 2 types of Post-It flags. I'd rather they give a little more of the flags as it's easier to gauge how useful the flags are if I need to make notes, for example, inside a travel guide book.

Not sure why Post-It always gives this, their sampling activity is always misleading to a certain degree lol
WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: I can safely presume sampling redemption is over as I can't seem to find any info or the actual link that brings me to the redemption page.

I got to know about it on Facebook rather late, and to be honest, just 2 days before the closing date for the sampling activity. But anyway, I managed to get a CALECIM® Moisturising Cream (10g).
WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: CALECIM® Moisturising Cream giveaway has now been fully redeemed.

The sample(s) comes with a sachet each for day and night cream, as stated just below:
  • Age Reverse Day Repair SPF 30 @ 2g (left)
  • Age Reverse Night Lift @ 2g (right)

The Sample Store

It feels like ages since I redeemed something a little more atas from The Sample Store's "Free Samples" tab.

I redeemed a IQueen Wrapping Mask EX @ 7g, it consists of:
  • Power Lifting Serum (top)
  • Wrapping Mask EX (bottom)

Expat Living Singapore

Expat Living Singapore was previously giving away complimentary one year magazine, Expat Living Singapore Body & Mind Guide 2016-2017. I haven't gotten around to browsing through it yet though ^^;
WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to and fill in your details. As the link is still working, the giveaway could still be available, so go on and request your copy.

Nescafe was previously hosting a samppling activity for their latest product, the NESCAFÉ Zero Sugar added and the samples I've gotten consists of 7 sachets which is just enough for my personal porcelain cup. Sometimes, instant coffee can be overly sweet, so it's nice to see Nescafe coming up with a version that does not contain sugar at all. Well, if you still want it just a teeny wee sweet, you can add in a splash of sugar yourself, but it defeats the purpose of getting a zero sugar coffee instead.
WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Sampling is over, although I still see their Sponsored Post floating around still.

Alpen Singapore was previously hosting a sampling activity, I've gotten:
  • Alpen Original Muesli @ 50g
  • Alpen Fruit & Nut @ 28g
  • Alpen Trail Bar Big Berries @ 48g

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Sampling has ended.

Bioderma was having a sampling acitivty, I got the 3-day trial of Hydrabio Perfecteur SPF 30 @ 5ml.
WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Go over to bioderma_fb/sg/redeem, fill in your details and wait for the sample to arrive in your mailbox. As the link and webpage is still working, I believe the sampling activity is still ongoing.

Freebie redemption with purchase, but I'm not going to go all the way to Jurong Point for a tumbler ^^

EverSoft was hosting a sampling acitivity, and I got a 30ml travel pack Yuzu & Mint Beauty Shower Foam @ 30ml. And needless to say, the scent is refreshing~
WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: I've tried the link, but it isn't working. So it's safe to presume the sampling activity is over as well.
