What I got from my First SampleroomPH

As a beauty & lifestyle blogger, I love to try new things whether high end or drugstore products. Whether international or local brands, I just loooove to try new things & like to share them to my readers here in my blog. 

It was my first time to be part of the SampleroomPh customer & hopefully someday, be a beauty insider (one of my wish)

They have given me 100 points upon registering so I immediately use it to try things I haven't tried out yet, you just have to pay the shipping fee. When I received the package I was so excited, the product was neatly packaged & they will give you an update of the delivery on your email once you have deposited your payment of the shipping fee.

The first samples that I got was the a small size jar of pond's age miracle day cream & 5 different scents from Bambini Cologne.

These are the things I got from SampleroomPh

The first product is the Pond's Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Day Cream. If you have read my morning routine, you know that the moisturizer I've been using is the Olay total effects before I apply my primer & foundation.

This has an SPF 18 PA++ which I always want in a day cream. It should have an SPF in it. 

Net Weight : 10g

As you can see the size of this moisturizer. It's so cute. This was also sold in stores everywhere for just Php 99.00. They have also a bigger size 50g which was priced at Php 499.00. You can also buy this online at, BeautyMNL &

Pond's trademark cream color is a light baby pink - very feminine. It has this mild creamy scent to it which is been known even before.

The texture is very smooth & light which easily can be absorbed to the skin. I think it has more water base rather than a silicone one. Basically, it acts just a moisturizer. Because it's so light & it's like a gel like form that easily melts so that's why it easily absorbs by the skin, it can't act as a primer not like other moisturizers that are creamy in texture which it can act as a moisturizer & primer in one. Not that I don't like it, don't get me wrong. I also love this type of texture. 

As you can see the swatch above when it's blended. 

The next product that I got is from Bambini

It contains 5 pcs. of different scents in a 50 ml bottle encased in a pouch.

And look what it says on the pouch, how wonderful.

These 50 ml bottles are also sold in all nationwide stores near you. 

Sunny Playtime - light orange-y powder scent that reminds me of morning sunshine. Like you just an aftermath of taking a bath. Smells fresh & new.

Ocean Kisses - smells like ocean breeze that reminds me of seaside scents where you can feel splashes of ocean waves hitting the stones as if giving you lots of kisses.

Cotton Cuddles - smells like cotton candy berry flavored scents that makes me feel like being wrapped in a soft blanket while sleeping in my bed.

Starry Lullaby - a light sweety scent that imagined myself going to a very peaceful sound evening.

And lastly,

Morning Tickles - a sweet orange, lemony scent that ticklishly wakes you up in the morning which makes you giggle.

Overall, I love the things I got from SampleroomPH. The Pond's Age Miracle helps you to achieve a youthful glow while Bambini Baby Colognes brings you back to your childhood memories.

EvoLuderm Eau Micellaire

Ever since last year when Micellar water became a hype. Lots of different brands of their micellar water version pops out from every beauty section in every mall that I went to and probably in other malls that I haven't been to as well both high end and drugstore products. On my beauty shopping at the beauty section at Landmark Trinoma, I saw this huge bottle at a very affordable price of 500 pesos. I also did a review of another micellar water brand - Simple. You can check my review HERE

But first, before I jump into my product review, I would like to tackle a little more of micellar water. What is micellar water? 

It is not just water but it's made up of small, tiny gentle microscopic oil molecules called micelles that's suspended in soft water but this does not foam like those soaps and cleansers do so, you don't need water to rinse it on your face because it dissolves the bad stuffs like dirt and grime makeup but don't worry it still keep the good stuffs on your skin intact.

How Micellar Water started? Well, we can thank the French women about that. As you all know and of course, everyone knows fashion and beauty starts from France. So, who really started this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G beauty product?

The very first Micellar water, that really started it all. Bioderma H2O which was created by Jean-Noël Thorel, a pioneering pharmacist in the 70s.

Now, that you know a brief history of the Micellar Water; let's go to the main topic review shall we?

Evoluderm Eau Micellaire

There are two (2) types - one in blue cap which is for dry skin and the other is the green cap for oily combination skin which I did took.

NET WEIGHT : 500 ml / 16.9 fl. oz.

At the back of the clear bottle are the ingredients and the directions on how to use this product which obviously to apply on your face using a cotton pad.

The cap is a flip open/close one which for me, I like it better than a twisted one because it control the dispense of the product and also, it prevents spilling too much which leads to wasting a ton of the product.

I do have a very sensitive and combination oily skin, so, when I tried Evoluderm Eau Micellaire I don't have any problems with this, it doesn't give any irritation too! I don't feel any oil in it just micellar water.

Have you tried Evoluderm Eau Micellaire?

What do you think?

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water

Last year, miscellar cleansing water became a rave here & even before - it was being raved in other countries that's an advantage when you are watching beauty gurus at youtube haha. I've been waiting for it to be available here in the Philippines & when Simple - a good drugstore product is readily available here I cannot contain my happiness. 

Finally, it's here! 

PACKAGING  : The packaging of this product (by the name of the brand itself is SIMPLE but there's an elegance overall). A semi-cylindrical shape, it's trademark is the green cap. I believe this the very first drugstore brand to have a micellar cleansing water. It's comparable to the ever expensive Bioderma H2O.

Net Weight : 6.7 Fl/ oz. / 198 ml

Shade : A clear liquid form

At the back are the step by step on how to apply this product and the ingredients as well.

Overall, I've been using this for months now and I've never experienced any irritation nor breakouts on my skin. It's gentle and soothing to my skin. There's no strong scent to it.

So, have you tried Simple Micellar Cleansing Water? If not yet, I highly recommend this product.

Peppermint Crinkles' Approval : 5/5

Thanks for stopping by :

Hugs & Kisses,
