The Body Shop Tea Tree

The Body Shop Tea Tree Facial Wash  5ml

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil  1ml


We got them from Scratch and Win at The Body Shop Singapore.

We went to collect the samples at Parkway Parade and are really angry with the impatient, rude and unfriendly attitude of the chubby fair skin China Sales Assistant.

Jericho Premium Eye & Neck Gel Sample

I received a Free 3ml sample from Jericho store.


Consists of Dead Sea minerals, age-defying ingredients, plant extracts and natural oils.  Use daily to keep the skin around the eyes and neck look young and healthy. 

The gel minimizes the appearance of wrinkles by penetrating deep into the dermis and renewing the cells.

Directions : Apply a small amount of the gel and massage gently into skin.  Allow for complete absorption.  Use daily at night.

Ingredients :

My Experience

This is a refreshing gel that keeps the eyes and neck moisturized.

A little gel is sufficient for my eyes and neck.  After a few rubs and pats, it absorbs fast into the skin, leaving it as if I have applied nothing.  Since it is non oily and sticky, I feel very comfortable applying it in the hot weather.

After a week of application, day and night, I do not see any improvement on the lines at my eyes and neck.

My Encounter

2 months later ........ my unpleasant encounter ........

One evening as I was passing the store, a shop assistant ran to me with a sachet of sample.  I did not want to take it, but she insisted.  When I lifted my hands up to receive it, she immediately brought out the other hand ( which she put behind her back ) and poured big pieces of sea salt onto my palm.  At the same time, she put her hand that held the sample behind her back.  Her action is super fast, which gave me no time to react. 

She forced me to go into the store to scrub and wash my hands with the sea salt.  I was so surprised with her action that I became tongue tied.   I walked away immediately to the toilet and throw the sea salt away.

That was the first time I met such a weird shop assistant.  She pretended to give and insisted that I take the sample.  In the end, she kept the sample and poured sea salt onto my palm without my permission. 

I really hate to rub myself with the rough and hard sea salt that hurts my skin so much. 

Now, when I shop at Suntec City Mall, I totally ignore the store.

Eucerin Samples

I have exchanged this coupon for a Free sample set.

Hyaluron-Filler Concentrate 1.5ml 
Wash Lotion 30ml
Hyaluron-Filler Day Cream 1.5ml

My Experience

Hyaluron-Filler Concentrate

This diluted concentrate has a nice perfume scent. It is non oily and sticky.

I applied it onto my face, eyes and neck. After a few rubs and pats, it absorbs fast into my skin as if I have applied nothing. It keeps my skin well hydrated under the air condition.

Hyaluron-Filler Day Cream

This thick white day cream has a nice perfume scent.

I applied it onto my face, eyes and neck. After a few rubs and pats, it absorbs into my skin leaving it sticky. After sometime, my face turns oily.

During the hot weather, my face has the uncomfortable oily and sticky feeling.

Wash Lotion

This transparent white wash lotion has a heavy perfume scent. It is mild and does not lather to rich soapy bubbles.

Squeeze out a handful of wash onto my palm and add water to lather. Apply to body and wash from ears to feet.

A handful of wash is not enough to go on to my feet. I need to use 3 handfuls of wash from my ears to feet.

After bath, my very dry skin feels smooth and moisturized.  Its scent on my body will last for quite a while.

With the smooth skin, it is much easier to apply the body lotion.

I normally wash my body with this wash lotion and my feet with a stronger type of bath foam, as I feel that this lotion is too mild to thoroughly cleanse the dirt and germs away from my dirty feet.

When I am out on the streets in the polluted air, I prefer to use the stronger type of bath foam. I do not feel this mild wash lotion will thoroughly cleanse the dust and dirt away from my skin.

I prefer to use this wash lotion in the morning or when I am at home the whole day, where the air is cleaner.

Hada Labo

These are two Hada Labo products which I have bought from Hong Kong.

Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion


Hada Labo AHA / BHA Exfoliating Face Wash

I personally think that these products are the same as the ones retailing in Singapore.

I noticed that Hong Kong products do not state the ingredients and where they are made in.

Nivea UV Whitening Extra Cell Repair Body Lotion

It comes in a twin pack. One bottle with a pump cap and one with a flip cap.


Extra Cell Repair Body Lotion is suitable for frequent sun exposure skin.

My Experience

This white lotion has a strong perfume scent.

I apply it every night to my whole body from shoulders to legs, except my back which I cannot reach.  After a many rubs, it absorbs into my skin, leaving it smooth and moisturized.  

It leaves a lotion coating on my skin.  Though it is non oily and sticky, I still feel uncomfortable.  But after a few hours, the lotion coating disappeared.

However, this lotion has not cured my very dry skin.  It only helps to temporary moisturized my dry skin.

I do not see my skin getting fairer, radiant, soft and smooth.  My skin is still dull and dry.  My dark spots are not lightened at all.

When under the air-condition for long hours, this lotion will not keep the skin well moisturized. 

When under the hot sun for long hours, this lotion is not strong enough to protect the skin.  My skin became very dark and dry when I went for an excursion.   
I definitely have to apply a sun block lotion when I need to be under the scorching heat of the sun for long hours.
