Mail of the Week (May 2 - 6)

MuLondon products: The lovely Boris (founder and head cream-whipper) very kindly sent me some of his products to review. MuLondon products are made by hand, they are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. What's not to love? Here is what I received:

  • Organic Marigold, Frankincense & Myrrh Face Moisturiser
  • Organic Rose Moisturiser

Products to review from Farleyco.ca: I was recently given the opportunity to review some Batiste Dry Shampoos, but I never expected to receive that much goodies! Included in the package were products distributed by Farleyco to major retailers across Canada:

  • Batiste Coloured Dry Shampoo 'Black'
  • Batiste 'Tropical'
  • Batiste 'Blush'
  • Batiste 'Original' 
  • EcoTools Bamboo 6 piece brush set
  • Montagne Jeunesse Chocolate Masque
  • Montagne Jeunesse White Chocolate
  • Montagne Jeunesse Apricot Scrub
  • Montagne Jeunesse Peel-Off Masque

Free Glad Garbage Bag: This is totally random, and I can't remember where it comes from LOL

P&G brandSAMPLER samples: I'm always excited when new samples are available! These are the samples for the Spring Edition:

  • Puffs Non Lotion White facial Tissue
  • Head & Shoulders Dandruff Shampoo Itchy Scalp Care
  • OLAY 2-in-1 sample size facial cloth
  • Pringles Baked Wheat Stix Jalapeno Flavour
  • Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Scope Outlast Mouthwash
  • Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPac

All the online samples have been requested, but if you don't want to miss the next edition, be sure to check their website often and sign up for the newsletter.

P&G brandSAMPLER For Men samples: I think it's a great idea to offer samples especially for men! I requested these for my boyfriend:

  • Gillette Odour Shield All Day Clean Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant
  • Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor
  • Gillette Odor Shield All Day Clean Body Wash 
  • Gillette Fusion ProSeries Intense Cooling Lotion
  • Gillette Fusion ProSeries Thermal Face Scrub

Those samples seem to be still available, so hurry up and order yours!

Coupons for two bottles of Aquafina Plus+ Vitamins 10 Cal: I completed a survey on Aquafina Canada Facebook page and I was rewarded with these coupons. I love this beverage, it's really yummy, and good for your health, too!

Udderly Smooth products: I was so fortunated to receive these products as you know I have really bad eczema and super dry skin, and nothing seems to really work. Did you know that Udderly Smooth products were originally invented for use on dairy cows and that they are now used for dry and chapped skin? Here's what I was sent to try and review:

  • Udder Cream 
  • Moisturizing Lotion
  • Shea Butter Foot Cream

I thought it would be fun to start the week-end with a song so in each of my Mail of the Week posts, I will share with you a song that I hope you will enjoy.

  1. Chanceuse d'avoir des beaux produit comme ça pour faire des Review =)

    Moi aussi j'ai hâte de recevoir les produits pour homme j'ai rien reçu encore =(

  2. yay i got some p&g samples as well, but i didn't get as much as you haha, i guess its limited quantities? and i recently ordered the male samples for my bf too :D

  3. Ooh some lovely stuff there.

    I'm intrigued by the MuLondon stuff and look forward to a review in the future.

  4. Moi aussi j'ai eu les mêmes samples de P&G brandSAMPLER + ceux pour hommes :)

    haha j'trouve ça trop drôle le sac de vidange! il y a plusieurs mois on pouvait commander un coupon pour une boîte de sac Glad gratuite, mais je pense qu'ils ont été débordé par la demande et qu'ils ont vite épuisé leur réserve de coupons. Donc, ça vient peut-être de là?

  5. ooo bcp de goodies!!! ^^ pour les p&g samples jai recu moins que toi =( peut etre que je suis arrivee tard x__x

  6. So many samples! :D
    Please write about the batiste dry shampoo if you get a chance to! I've only tried the original and really liked it but haven't bought another one in a while because I tend to use it up quickly >__<

  7. Great mail you got this week Gaby! Yes I knew about the Udderly smooth being made originally to moisturize cow udders LOL I haven't given it a shot as I do love my various Cetaphil and Aveeno branded moisturizers. But you're so lucky you get to try out and review these products for blogger!
    I saw the P&G sampler for Men too and signed up for my Dad or Dale. It's great I think! Oh and I love Scope Outlast! It seriously keeps my breath minty for the longest time compared to any other mouthwash.
    Dale picked up a Batiste Dry shampoo for me the other week - it's the pink bottle one. It smells not bad but it comes out really white!! I don't think I would purchase it again on my own :(
    The ecotools brush set looks very nice and that's so cool you get to try out hand made organic products! Awww, lucky girl!

  8. Wow, so many great things!!

  9. Wow, so many great things!!

  10. Everything looks good! But the MuLondon stuff grabbed my attention- vegan stuff! That's so cool! lol xD

  11. Those EcoTools blushes are love! :P

  12. ooh lucky you!! :D that udderly smooth lotion stuff looks amazing! i have eczema too :(

  13. Nice!!! I had no idea about that web site! I just checked it out but there are all out of samples =\ enjoy yours! I have the Eco tools brushes and I like them for cheap brushes.. I would really like to know how u like the dry shampoo, I've never used that kind so keep us posted!

  14. damn, those are some nice samples! I do the sampling thing too so I'm expecting some packages soon. I love the gillette samples you got. I actually use the pro glide mens razor for my legs. It gives me the closet shave ever!

  15. @Hypnotiz3m3: As-tu reçu les échantillons P&G "normaux" au moins? Moi j'ai reçu les deux en même temps.

    @Rakhshanda: I will (=

    @christine: Yes you always to hurry up with those samples!

    @ cornflakegirl : It looks amazing, but I haven't tried it yet, as I'm currently testing some face creams already.

    @Vintage Makeup : Don't be hun, you always get interesting stuff too =P

    @Cocovanilla: Ah bin tu vois, ça me dis absolument rien ça, je n'ai vraiment aucun souvenir d'avoir commandé quelque chose de Glad ahahah

    @Katie @ Supergirl @ Linh: Absolutely =D

    @petitechouxx : Oui c'est sûrement à cause de ça, il faut se dépêcher avec ces échantillons là, ils partent toujours très vite!

    @mandy: Yes that's what happen with aerosols products, that's why I prefer to use cornstarch as dry shampoo, but Batiste smells so much better (=

    @Karen Law : I couldn't believe it at first, I thought it was a joke because in French, the instructions are not the same, it's written as if the lotions were to be used on a cow, that's really funny! I prefer to use my Cetaphil and Aveeno lotions only on my hands as they are expensive, and these Udderly Smooth products moisturize really well, I'm happily surprised! Yes Scope Outlast is great, it really works, and I always keep this little sample bottle to refill it and keep it in my handbag (= Yes that's the problem with most dry shampoos for us brunettes )= the EcoTools brushes are sooooo soft, I can't believe it, I wanted to try them for such a looooong time!

    @Beauty By Rosh x: Yes, I can't believe my luck to be able to try vegan beauty products!

    @Pammy: Yes I've started using them recently and they are soooo soft!

    @Cerina: It is, it seems to have imediately moisturized my elbows and helped my eczema a bit, I'm super happy!

    @TEA aka MonsterGirl: Yes these P&G samples always go out fast, you have to be real quick to get some! Those EcoTools brushes are amazing and soooo soft! Yes I'll definitely post about Batiste (=

    @MaviDeniz: I actually kept the razor to use on my legs hehe =P
