The Sample Store Haul - Try BB creams for free!

This is going to be a long post, but I just GOT to share this website with you guys ^____^! Last year I had read a lot about The Sample Store on dblchin's blog. The Sample Store is an online store in Singapore which sells samples of a lot of products including Asian cosmetics, skincare products and even weight loss cookies lol xD. So you can try the products first before you buy the retail size products which they are selling as well. They only shipped their products in Singapore back then, but they recently changed it and they are shipping their products worldwide now (which I saw on Naomi's blog). I recently purchased a few samples there, so I will talk about my haul and my experience with this awesome website with you girls ^__^.
What's so awesome about this store?
Recently I have been searching for some good BB creams to try, but the best way to do that is to have samples. With samples you will know if it suits your skin tone or not. I saw that you can get samples of BB creams at The Sample Store of the brands Bio Essence, BRTC, Skin food, Lioele, Dr. Jart and more.. So I was very excited when I saw it since I wanted to try those BB creams for a long time now xD!! And they don't only have BB creams, they have sheet masks as well and eye creams from Skin food and Naruko for example. Whoaa, so many products that I still need to try!!!

How does their system work?
You need to make an account on their website: Thesamplestore.sg (registration is for free). You will have 6 points when you register, each sample will cost you 2 points. You are only allowed to order max. 4 samples per time. The samples are free, you only have to pay for the shipping. The shipping costs depends on the weight of the samples that you're choosing. TIP! There are samples with FREE SHIPPING, like the Bio essence BB creams! When you've paid the shipping, you will loose your points on their site. When you received the products you have to write a very short review about the samples that you had ordered on their site. For each review you will get 2 points and when you have gained 8 points by writing reviews, you are allowed to get 4 samples again. It's THAT SIMPLE ;)!

What did I order?
♥ Two Bio essence BB cream (free shipping)
Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel, removes black heads. (free shipping)
♥ Two BRTC Jasmin water BB creams
♥ Dress me revitalizing & firming sheet mask (I just bought this on their website)
Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion, one of this product is sold every 4 seconds in Japan. That really attracts me to try it.

I will make swatches and reviews later, so stay tuned ^___^!

I only paid around 2.- for shipping (=$3,55 SGD) and it's totally worth it! However, you really need to check what you're ordering since some products are heavy, which means that your shipping costs will be high! It took around 2 weeks to get here in The Netherlands. The package was well packed - the samples were wrapped with bubble wrap. 

YES, I've got great experience with this website and it's trustworthy. I LOVE it and I will definitely make an order again anytime soon. So this website: Thesamplestore.sg is totally RECOMMENDED =D !!! Lol I'm so enthusiastic about this website because it's so great XD! Oh btw, you can also get a sample of CURE - natural aqua gel that I mentioned on my blog before at their website ;)

Disclaimer: I've purchased these samples with my own money, the products aren't sponsored. I have not been paid or influenced to write this review. This is my personal experience with this website.
