My First PINCHme Box(es)

In one day I received a bunch of samples.  Some of which I had to pay for, and another two boxes that were totally free.  I love free.  

I signed up for PINCHme via FreeStuffFinder, and thought how it was cool that you can choose what samples you want, and get them shipped to you for free.  When they release new samples, you better be ready to hop on it before they're sold out.  They're relseasing some tomorrow and I've got my alarm ready!


In one day, I ordered 4 items.  They arrived at my doorstep 3 weeks later in two separate boxes.  I was happy and surprised to see these boxes and have my first PINCHme experience.  

I received the following products:

- Suave Skin Solutions Body Lotion: I could always use a good lotion on the go.  My hands have been quite dry lately, so I applied some to give it a test.  The lotion is not too thick, it actually has more of a light consistency.  It also has a fragrance that smells clean and not girly.  It does leave a clammy-like feel on my hands for the first few minutes.  I don't really like that feeling.  This is supposed to provide 24 hour moisturization.  After a day of work at the office, after washing my hands, etc., my hands look and feel pretty moisturized.  Although it does provide good moisturization, I don't really like the feeling after application, so I don't think I'll be purchasing the full size of this.  


- method Laundry Detergent:  This sample size is so cute.  I appreciate how this is a plant based formula.  I also appreciate how it came with a $1 off coupon.  Excited to try out a new detergent.  I started by washing some of the rags.  I liked the pump squirt method of the bottle, and it said only two squirts should be good for a small load.  It has a nice light fragrance and it did start some bubbles in the wash.  


- Clear Damage & Color Repair Shampoo:  I have damaged and colored hair that is in need of repair.  I put a few generous drops into my palm.  I liked the fragrance and the shimmer of the shampoo.  That was plenty of shampoo because it worked up a good lather. I probably could have gone with one big drop.  I didn't use any conditioner because it is a conditioning shampoo, but I really should have.  It says that hair will be "stronger, more beauiful in 7 days " (less brakage when combing vs. non-conditioning shampoo).  

 
- Gevalia Mocha Latte:  I was hoping I would have a Keurig by this time, but I don't, and I don't even drink coffee.  Too bad I can't give this a try.  It looks good!

So the deal is that you have to review these items after you get them.  The surveys are on the site and will give you points after completion.  The points you collect can get you to different levels with different access.  Currently, I am at Level 1, which means I can claim and try samples.  That's a good level to be at!
