Loots from Preloot!!

Even until today, when all the subscription beauty box crazy are dying down.. I’m still pretty much into beauty sampling.. So glad I chance upon Preloot on Instagram!

Preloot works pretty much the same. Try before buying..

Ya.. Different signboard but still selling the same soup? .. Second thought, not really..

The difference? They focus on LOCAL handmade beauty products..SUPPORT LOCAL!! 

I shall leave it to you to check out more on Preloots story HERE.

Without further ado… Let’s check out my first loot bag from Preloot!!

\(^_^)/

Yes… No monthly subscription.. Free samples.. What you need to pay is the shipping fee only. That’s S$8.99 for 5 samples.

Sounds expensive as compared to competitors? But .. they bring in local handmade products!! That’s the price I’m willing to pay! On the other hand, choose bigger items la! Max out the amount you pay! LOL

Here’s my bag, literally a (paper) bag! Not sure if they had mail this or delivered it personally because I don’t see my address anywhere on the bag. What you see is what I see too~

So how did I stretch my dollar???

I redeemed a FULL SIZE Rachel K CC Renew cream and pressed powder…

IMG_6192

If you didn’t know, which I doubt so, Rachel K is a Singaporean and was crowned Miss Universe Singapore in 2009!! Rachel K debuted her CC cream in 2010 and was an instant hit!

Which women doesn’t want to have beautiful skin!? Knowing that Rachel K’s product main targets combination skin, I’m pretty sure I wanna get my hands on this!! But first I need to get the right shade first!! Medium is lil dark for me! Guess I will redeem again for another tone!

After taking care of face, I think it’s good to take care of our body too! I redeemed these handmade herbal soap from Bodhi for my handsome fiance! Guys love soap bar isn’t it??

IMG_6194

Actually I didn’t realize I have a Bodhi product sitting at home until that day I was dazing in my study room~ A Bodhi Reed Diffuser! (I’ll show u next time!)

Eucalyptus – 100g

Banish fatigue and stress with this 100% natural soap. Contains Eucalyptus essential oil, which helps in easing skin irritation and insect bites and relieves muscle pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Anti-bacterial, refreshing and cooling soap.

Lanna Spa – 100g

100% natural. Lanna Spa soap contains various essential oils – Lavender, Tea Tree, Lemongrass and Orange. These oils purify, calm, and stimulate new skin cells growth.

The last product in my shopping cart is this body scrub from Basic-Theory.

IMG_6195 IMG_6196 IMG_6197 IMG_6203

And you’ve guessed it! This is a local brand too (of course)! They source the ingredient from all over the world and then carefully handcrafted in small batches, in Singapore!! 很有心right?

You must be thinking.. of sooo many flavours out there WHY COFFEE!???

Because coffee smells good mah~! Plus this is finest grade organic fair-trade Arabican coffee beans leh!! Good to perk you up while diminishing those stubborn skin imperfections.

I must say… when I opened up the packed, I nearly fainted. The coffee fragrance was a lil too bitter. Perhaps I’m not a true coffee lover.

But that aside, the scrub was good. It was a really good scrub and I enjoyed the whole scrubbing process.. A 40g pack from Preloot is definitely good for 2-3 wash!

IMG_6206 IMG_6212

Ehem.. but personal preference, I would like to use the scrub before my shower gel, else my skin is full of coffee stain.. eee.. Glad that I’m all smooth and rejuvenated after a evening scrub!

I’m glad there’s a platform whereby we can get to know more local brands and try before using!! Who says 新加坡没好货!?

 

Loot value: SGD137.00 !!

Rachel K CC Renew Cream: USD48.00 for 40g (about SGD62.00)

Rachel K CC Renew Pressed Powder: USD42.00 for 12g (about SGD55.00)

Bodhi Handmade Herbal Soap: SGD7.90 for 100g

Basic-Theory Body Polish: SGD18.90 for 180g (that’s about SGD4.20 for 40g)

I think I stretch my dollar pretty well! So paiseh~ >_<

Now’s your chance.. Try Preloot today! Hands on local product now!!

Ehem.. I’m looking forward to my 2nd bag already.. and 3rd bag soon!

20120913-225357.jpg

减肥咯!!2 mini tubes of Bio-essence Inchloss body scrub and body cream.

20120913-225411.jpg

The body scrub is really like normal body scrub! no hot sensation but it is definitely HOT! WHY? cuz i accidentally rub my eyes with it and i nearly cant open my eyes~ OOOH~~~

20120913-225420.jpg

This is the body cream.. smell sweet too.. really! they do not have those tingy hot smell.. u wun feel like using slimming products..

But seriously the effect.. YET TO SEE ANY! hahahahahaha!!!

20120913-225446.jpg

Tadaaaa~~~!! my samples from beauty counter! i hope they dun ban mi one day! but… i got these from my mom and friends…

20120913-225726.jpg

First, i got my Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion! this BB cream is lightweight and really soothing! but the coverage isn’t very good. Freckles! u can’t hide under them~! Yes, you can hide freckles! Do it correctly and you will have less visible freckles! How? Instead of swipe them across your face, dap them on spotted area…!

20120913-225747.jpg

A 4g sample is quite a reasonable i think… but probably only good for 2-3 use?? Tested. Good for at least a week!

20120913-225813.jpg

Sample comes w a mini sponge for application..

20120913-225821.jpg

See… this is while applying, u can see it isn’t really very heavy..

20120913-225833.jpg

i applied on my right half of hand.. can u see the difference?? well, i can’t! some of u may think its good cuz it doesn’t makes u look like wearing a “mask”.. but i think different. If there is no difference, then wat for i apply it???

20120913-225847.jpg

now this pic, i applied on my whole hand. Seems fairer but.. may be due to lighting!

20120913-225903.jpg

This isn’t some magnificent pic.. just wanted to show u my gel remover can remove this BB Cream tooo~ ^_^

20120913-225910.jpg

NOW.. bare hand after remove BB Cream, seems like hand looks brighter.. HAHAH! not bad afterall… 😀

Dirty Works works the way i like~

How does this looks?? This is my first bag of GSS 战利品!Ordered online and self-collected at Wisma Atrium.. This self collection made is so worthwhile! So wat do we have here???

Can you see it better now? Face scrub.. Body scrub.. Face Mask.. Lip Balm.. this are what i’ve bought.. did i count wrongly?? haha! NO b’coz.. BODY BUTTER is a free gift!! they probably had ran thru my wishlist.. but the lady told me that it’s actually the body scrub i bought and they decided to gift me this body butter to try out! Full size body butter! Wow.. this is so crazy! .. and im telling you.. I’m loving all this new babies!!!

OFF WITH THE OLD; UNVEIL THE NEW!

Scrub a dub dub… say hello smooth you’re in the groove! You’ll love this creamy scrub – it buffs roughness away and conditions the skin with Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E.

Good clean fun!!!

So here.. first thing that caught my attention is this body scrub!! cant decide to get this Buff Your Stuff Body Scrub or the Buttery Salt Scrub.. both seems as good! Finally when i decided to get this.. i know i wun regret coz reviews about it are so good! Indeed, this scrub did not disappoint me!! My colleague says the shea butter smell is quite strong.. so i guess it’s a good thing?? (seriously i can’t identity shea butter scent.. LOL!)

I like this scrub.. know why? cuz the “after-effect” is not oily at all.. some body scrub has oil content so i would usually use shower gel to wash over again.. but this is totally NOT oily at all.. and i feel totally clean after the scrub! best is.. it makes u smell so niceee too!

How much?? …S$11.90!

April Trove – Spring’s Surprises

Last night had showed u a sneak preview.. LOL~ today i’m gona show u more.. ok.. perhaps i should share my thots first.. (pardon my long winded opening..LOL) Here goes…

i think the courier guy is good.. he actually called in advance to inform me that he will be around my area between 5-10pm (thot the range was a bit too FAR APART..) but he actually take into account of my request. I asked if he could deliver to me last in the list (9-10pm) as i won’t be home early.. and guess what.. he’s totally fine~! how cool!

Jus bef i reached my void deck, he called again and asked me to gv him a call when i’m reaching as he’s alr at my void deck waiting.. (impressed!! btw, it was only about 8.40pm then..) and throughout this whole “process”, he did not show bits of fustration and negetive attitude!! He’s all POLITE and TACTFUL!! *thumbs up!!*

Indeed a S$25 box service is different! If he had show a bit of attitude, i might have stopped my subscription!! GOOD JOB Vanity Trove!! GOOD JOB.. *oops* i din get the courier guy’s name! T_T

20120423-092529.jpg

So here’s the box which i’m so looking fwd to!!! It’s a box of 5 sample items and vouchers (plenty!!!).. Clinique.. Style.. Nuxe body.. and a house brand soap??

20120423-092409.jpg

20120423-092422.jpg

I’m sure everybody is familiar with this brand, Clinique. In this month’s VT, i’ve got a lip gloss with SPF 15 and a liquid facial soap for dry combination skin type (it’s my type~! how coincident!! LOL!) Clinique products are Allergy Tested and 100% Fragrance Free! well.. at least that is what is stated in thieir website.. LOL!! But one thing true enough.. their products (skin care) are custom-fit for every skin type and concern.. i had been to a Clinique counter ages ago (when i was a TEENAGE!!) to purchase their product.The beauty consultant there will actually talk to you to find out a few things from you and there is this “survey” u need to do to let them know more about your skin type and concerns.. Very personalise indeed.. unlike other brands that i had been to, the beauty consultants tends to introduce only their latest product.. 😦

The lip gloss here is a nude pink shade with some microshimmer.. it looks pink and sweet in the tube.. but when i applied, it is quite transparent.. and quite sticky actually.. Not that it will glue up your lips but it feels more “fiction” when u “mmmm” ur lips together tightly and trying to rub them against each other, probably becuz its less oily?

As for the facial soap, no comments yet as i only used ONCE.. quite hard to tell if it is good.. i would be telling a lie if i say it is excellent! >_<

20120423-092416.jpg

Next is this coffee soap.. it smells good but i’m not a soap person.. so i passed this to my dad..! he’s a coffee person and also a soap person! i think this suits him best! hahah!! Hope he wun turn into some vixen after shower!! hahahaha!!

20120423-092427.jpg

Body scrub~~ come just in time! my Lemongrass House body salt is finishing..! thou this is not some full size scrub but better than nothing! hahahaha!! (i have a photo of the scrub, let me upload it here ltr..! it looks abit.. unpleasant tho! probably b’cuz of the colors… hahah!) Here’s the pic!!! looks very unpleasant ya?? hahhaa! anyway, i feel that the scrub is rough… as if it wil damage ur skin.. but after scrubbing, i feel much better.. 🙂 not bad!

20120423-092442.jpg

20120423-092511.jpg

I’m not sure if this is a full size hair moisturizer but this is the biggest item in my VT! Together with this hair moisturizer is a S$2 voucher for future purchase at Guardian! i wonder how “costly” is their product!! (let mi do some research and keep you guys update again!!) Of cuz, i hope this product works! gona start using it tonight!

20120423-092503.jpg

Apart from solid samples.. here is one complimentary spa voucher and a spa polish! i think this month theme is highly related to coffee!! this spa sample is some coffee pack too! Looking fwd to my spa treat SOON! i hope they don’t do hard selling.. BTW, this Masego Spa is at Jurong.. was it call JCube?? the Ex-Jurong Entertainment Complex..?? oh well..  SAFRA Jurong!! Click here to see one of the review on Masego!!

20120423-092451.jpg

Last but not least… here is the TONS of vouchers in the pink envelope! but sadly.. none suits me.. the clothing for sale are for regular size ladies.. and there are not much accessories i can get from these sites.. think im gona pass on to my sis.. 🙂
