Points needed per product varies. Some products will cost you a full 100 points, some only needs 30 points. In short, you need to make your points grow in order for you to grab more samples.

Here's how to earn points...

I have been a member of Sampleroom ever since they opened in 2012. I was very curious about trying out some products from Celeteque since they released different skin care lines. I got the chance to try some products from their Age Care line and Brightening line through Sampleroom, which I ended up loving and still repurchasing up to now.

These are the samples I recently received from Sample Room and most of them are Full Sized. They have a wide variety of product samples up for grabs. It ranges from Skin Care, Hair Care, Body Care, Cosmetics, Tools, Health and even Lifestyle products.

You only need to pay for shipping and handling fee and that's it. The fee may vary depending on your location. In my case it's only Php 130.00 per transaction since I'm from Cebu City. (about $3 only)

Ziaja Phytoaktiv Face Toner Review

Good Day ladies! I'm slacking on my blog posts again. I just had a very busy week, and I didn't have time to take product photos. To summarize everything that happened, my younger sister graduated from college with a BS Psychology degree and my little Enzo just graduated with honors from Kinder 2 (I'm a Proud Mama!). My sister-in-law and my husband just graduated from law school, Yay! on to the Bar Exams! My older brother and I just celebrated our Birthdays. So, there were a lot of food feast involved, thus explains my busy week. LOL

Okay, enough blabber from me on to the review.  Like some of you, I am still on the hunt for my HG (holy grail) Face Toner. After finishing up my Moringa O2 Facial Toner, I decided to try out the Ziaja Phytoaktiv Face Toner which I bought at Beauty Bar last December 2013. I was just randomly looking at products from Beauty Bar then this baby pink cap caught my eye. When I read what was written on the bottle, it said that it was for sensitive skin and it was alcohol free, so I immediately bought it. After finally finishing up the whole bottle, here is what I have to say.

Product Info from Ziaja
Delicate skin with dilated capillaries problem.

Thoroughly cleanses and tones the skin.
Helps to reduce capillary walls propensity to break.
Effectively soothes irritations and smooth out the skin.
Alcohol- free.

Key ingredients
provitamin B5 (d-panthenol)   

200 ml / 7.0 fl oz

Retail Price:
Php 250.00 at Beauty Bar

comes with a baby pink flip top cap

contains 200ml of product and it is made in EU 
the expiry date is also indicated

Strengthening treatment for skin with dilated capillaries

What I like about it...
* inexpensive at only Php 250 for 200 ml
* thoroughly cleanses, I can see traces of dirt on my cotton pad even after I use my facial wash
* literally feels like water with a mild scent
* it's alcohol free, so it doesn't sting at all
* does not feel dry after use, my skin feels fresh and well hydrated
* the 200ml bottle lasted for three and a half months, I use it twice a day
* no allergies or irritation experienced

What I don't like...
* I cannot vouch if this will work for those with dilated capillaries, because I don't have that kind of skin condition.

My rating: 4 / 5

Overall, it's an awesome alcohol-free facial toner considering the affordable price. I would highly recommend this to those with sensitive skin as this really feels like water.

Would I repurchase? Maybe, since I still want to try other alcohol-free toners available locally. But if I can't find anything else, I'd be repurchasing this for sure.

Until next time.
