Received another package last night, containing two shampoos and two masks. I needed a new shampoo after finishing up with The Body Shop Ginger Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. So in this shipment, I have the following items:

actual products purchased

  2. Skinfood Pomegranate Shampoo, $17.90, 320ml – for hair loss and thinning hair
  3. Skinfood Citron Scalp Care Shampoo, $17.90, 500ml – for clean and healthy scalp
  4. Etude House Pearl Extract & Pomegranate Sheet Mask, $1 per sheet, bought 7 and got 2 free – brightening and moisturising

And for these items, I got the following samples (which made me super duper happy!):

samples received for products purchased!

The nice seller also cleverly packed all my different orders (not made on same day) all into one shipment (not at my request, cos I forgot to), so I only paid for registered mail once, which cost me $3.

So far, I have tried items 1, 3, and 4, once each. Based on first impressions:

Item 1 –  A bit messy to apply, took a while to dry, hurts when peeling such that I teared quite a bit. I didn’t have a lot of exposed blackheads when I tried this (most of the ones I had were covered by a very thin layer of skin) so didn’t see much effect, but then again, I was desperate to get the mask off so I didn’t peel it out nicely enough to check the strips.

Item 3 – I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shampoo to bits simply cos of the smell. It’s like pink grapefruit with slight lemony/orange smell. I kept going into the bathroom to smell it after showering, couldn’t resist! It cleansed my scalp very well. I can feel the squeaky cleanness but not overly drying. Hair smelt awesome after shower and lasts till next morning! I don’t know if the smell can continue lingering, because I washed my hair again in the morning (I really don’t like to bathe in the morning, and usually never) just so I can refresh the smell in my hair!

Item 4 – I raved about this pearl extract mask the day after I used it, some time back. I remember telling my sister “It’s damnnnnnn good!” After using for 30min, I removed the mask and there was plenty of residue on my skin. So I massaged and rub and pat for the next 5 to 10 min. It was still super sticky and thick, and I thought oh crap, the sticky gooey type. So I rinsed my face with water, dried off and touched my face. And omg, I literally made a weird sound in my throat that sounded like “wa-woah”. My skin was super soft, matte but extremely supple, and there was a translucent pinkish sheen to it that lasted till I spritz on my toner :/ Anyway, I recall that I loved it so much, I posted about it on my Facebook (which is super uncharacteristic!!). On 5 June 2012, I posted “Omg I want Etude House Natural Mask Sheet Pearl Extract. Like a supply for the next 3-5 years! First rave ever about a sheet mask.”
