I like to join giveaways, contests, collect free samples and do surveys as well. Sometimes you get rewarded for completing surveys too. Today 4 items arrived by courier. They are prizes from the giveaways, contests and surveys I did online on Facebook.
They are a variety of items from food to pharmaceutical products. First to arrive was a 250ml feminine wash from Lactacyd. They have 4 variants which you can identify from the different coloured bottles for different purposes. I got the green all day fresh one. This was from the LACTACYD: DOUBLE UP TO #BETHEBESTME CONTEST GIVEAWAY.
Next were two bottles of Betadine Sore Throat Spray. It’s for relief of throat chapping, throat pain, throat swelling, throat discomfort and hoarseness caused by inflammation of the throat. This was for a survey I completed. I was surprised they sent me two bottles.
Finally, there’s K-Fish Korean Seafood with 3 types of cubed-shaped seaweed snacks, original, cheese with almonds and cranberry with walnut. This was from K-Fish’s Dr. Handsome Seaweed Snack Giveaway in celebration of their Facebook Page having over 10,000 Followers. Wow! Congratulations to K-Fish on that achievement. The bundle of 3 packets of snacks came in a nice soft black tote bag which is perfect for folding and keeping in my handbag for emergencies when I go shopping and forget my shopping bag.
I’m grateful for this opportunity to try out new products. Thank you to all the sponsors.
I noticed that those who love to enter giveaways and contests also share another thing in common. They love free samples and other freebies including door gifts at events etc. Well, okay not all of them do but some of them do like free samples as I do. I like being able to test out products before I buy them and I also like to try out new products.
Today, I managed to get free samples for two well-known Korean Skincare brands – Laneige and Mamonde. How lucky! Here’s the one from Mamonde. It’s the new Moisture Ceramide Cream with Hibiscus extract. I haven’t tried it yet but one thing I know is I will love the fragrance. Mamonde’s products are inspired by Flowers. Their products smell refreshingly natural, no chemical smells.
You can redeem your Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Intense Cream sample here while stocks last. Note that you have to complete a google form and flash your confirmation email to the beauty consultant to redeem. The sample is a 3-day trial pack with 6 packets in the pack. Sometimes they run out of stock so you get just 1 or 2 which makes it hard to decide whether the product is right for you. You should get 6 for the full pack.
I was also curious about the Laneige Focus Active Ampoule Trial Kit. The sample kit includes 3 pieces of 1.7ml ampoule. They’re so cute! They’re for brightening, firming and repair.
After you have completed the redemption form, you will receive an email with a redemption code. The code has an expiry date of 1 week from the date you complete the form, so don’t complete it till you know you have time to visit the counter. You can redeem your sample at any Laneige boutique counter nationwide by showing your unique code and your IC as verification. It is available on a first-come-first-served basis while stocks last.
If you are wondering when to apply an ampoule, here’s an article on what is an ampoule and which stage of your skincare you should apply it.
Today the courier came by with some chlorophyll drinks. It’s a little bit embarrassing to have the couriers dropping by and ringing my bell so frequently. The neighbours probably think I am addicted to online shopping or something.
Anyway, I won these from a Friendship Day Giveaway organized by Surya Malaysia. I had won Apple Cider Vinegar from Surya before in a contest organized by Big Pharmacy so I was expecting to see more ACV mistakenly.
I was surprised to find two bottles of chlorophyll drinks instead. They were Peach and Lychee Flavoured Chlorophyll drinks. I wonder how they taste as I have not got a chance to taste it yet. Chlorophyll reminds me of grass and leaves. Will they go well with Lychee and Peach?
Here’s a closer look at the two flavours.
Here’s a look at the ingredients. The Lychee one contains Water, Lychee, Apple and Chlorophyll whereas the Peach one contains Water, Peach, Passionfruit and Chlorophyll. You are supposed to mix 25ml of these with 125 ml of lukewarm water to serve.
I can’t wait to try it later. Thank you to Surya Malaysia for this opportunity to try these health drinks. Below is the contest I entered. My winning entry was reminiscing about the time when I was in college and we were playing hide and seek in a bungalow by the beach in the dark and one of my friends hid in the cupboard and the cupboard broke. It is one of the things that I will never forget. The fun times and things we did when we were younger. Happy Friendship Day 2019.
Today the giveaway prize that my foodie had been waiting for arrived. Every time the courier delivers a package, he would feel the package and if it turned out to be one of my skin care stuff again, he would be disappointed.
The package did not disappoint today. It was a whole big packet of Kow Kow Mixed Peanuts!
The mixed bag of nuts came in 4 flavours. They were Shandong Peanuts, Crispy Broad Beans with Onions and Garlic flavour, Coated Peanuts (Spicy) and Coated Peanuts (Original).
Here’s a close-up look at the four nuts. Crunch. Crunch.
Here are the four varieties of the packet of nuts.
I am not sure if the nuts will last the day. I think they will be all gone before the day is over!
Thank you Kow Kow for this wonderful gift which I won in a giveaway recently.
