Hauls: Origins Knot Free Hair Care with Free Gifts

Last Friday, I decided to order from Origins.com with good free gifts. One account can only use each promo code once. I was so glad I made my two orders quick because from a makeup forum discussions, these free gifts were gone in bolting speed, and replaced with other stuffs that I don't want. There were a lot of posts mentioned their free gifts were cancelled due to out of stock. There were even a few greedy ones created up to six accounts with Origins.com just to get 6 from each free gifts!! (Very morally wrong. What do they want to do with so many bottles of the full size samples? Resell them?? How about people who really wants to get this chance to try the Origins products for free? Origins need to do something about this kind of exploitation.)

When I received my shipping confirmations, I felt slightly relieved. But still with some skeptical as one of the post mentioned her shipping did not come with the free gift.

Even though I made the two orders in 10 minutes difference, both of them arrived on different days.

In fact, my second order came first yesterday.

Then, my first order arrived today.

I was so happy to see all my 6 items came in complete list and sound conditions.

The first parcel was a Knot Free Finishing Rinse (US$13 plus tax), a Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash as free gift (one of their best rated and best selling products, original price US$18.50) and a small sample that comes with every order (I chose Peace of Mind, a calming and relaxing cream).

My second parcel also came with three items. A Knot Free Shampoo (US$13 plus tax), a Plantidote Mega Mushroom Eye Serum as free gift (original price US$45) and another Peace of Mind.

Both of these orders came with free shipping as I was using their Promo Codes.

I am very excited with the Knot Free Shampoo and Conditioner. They are a few times more expensive than the TRESemme products that I am using, but no harm in pampering myself with these products twice a month. My hair is dry, curly, rough and easily get tangled. I really hope the Knot Free will do what it claimed to do.

I am using Checks and Balances every night, and I have to say I love it. It suits and work well on my skin. This is the free gift version packaging. I don't mind, as long as the content inside is the same as their regular product.

I am very happy with this gift, though I still have yet to try it. It is an eye serum, and for US$45, I don't think I will make it my purchase choice. Now it comes as a free gift, I can test how good it is on my eyes without costing me a fortune.

I get these for FREE instead of paying the regular US$70 for them.

If those are not good enough, I also got two small tubes of Peace of Mind. I have tried it. A bit watery, but it feels so good on my temples. Refreshing and calming, especially good for me on these extremely hot days and stressed time in my life.

XOXO, Fish Fish
