Every few months Proctor & Gamble put out a FREE Sample box filled with household and personal care products for their customers to try. This Summer season they had three different boxes that you could sign up for. I was lucky enough to get two of the three before they sold out and here is my review of the first one.
This Try Before You Buy sample box was sponsored by Walmart and could contain up to 8 different samples. When you log in they ask you a few quick questions about the products that you use now and then depending on your answers match you up the best they can with the samples that they think you would be interested in trying. You don't have to choose to receive all of the samples that they choose for you but why wouldn't you?? They are FREE! I was lucky enough to receive all 8 of the available samples.

Now onto the products in this box!
1. Tide Pods
Sample Value - 1 pod/$0.36
Full Size - 14 pods/$4.99
These pods can be used in both front load and top load washers and include detergent, stain remover, and brightener. One pod equals one load of laundry. I got the scent "Spring Meadow". I give all my laundry samples to my mom because I still live at home.
2. Cascade All-In-One Dishwasher Pacs with Dawn
Sample Value - 2 pacs/$1.90
Full Value - 20 pacs/$18.99
These pacs include the grease fighting power of Dawn and one pac equals 1 load of dishes. Because I live at home I will be giving these to my mom. We are a fan of the pacs instead of liquid soap so these will go to good use.
3. Dawn Ultra Concentrated Dish Soap
Sample Value - 9ml/$0.05
Full Size - 709ml/$3.99
This sample is enough to do one sink of dishes. We like to use Dawn at my house so this is another sample that will go to good use.
4. Febreeze Set & Refresh Starter Kit
Sample Value - $4.69
Full Size - $4.69
This is a full size product and a good one at that! I got the scent Mediterranean Lavender which smells quite nice. I'm not the biggest fan of lavender but the other notes make it a subtle scent. Mine came in purple packaging which is perfect because my room is purple.
5. Bounty Trap & Lock Technology Paper Towels
Sample Value - 1 sheet/$0.07
Full Size - 88 sheets/$5.99
They sent out one sheet to sample to prove that you only need one sheet of Bounty to clean up life's little messes. I think I am going to use this sample when I clean my makeup brushes this week.
6. & 7. Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo & Conditioner
Sample Value - 100ml/$1.24
Full Size - 675ml/$8.39
Both the shampoo and conditioner have the same full size value and I combined their sample value together. Normally at Walmart or the Dollarama you would pay $1.50-$2.00 for each of these 50ml samples but I wanted to stick with what it is actually worth compared to the full size. I like that they sent both halves of the hair washing combo and I enjoy getting samples like this because they are perfect to bring on vacation. Samples this size also give you a good idea whether or not you are going to like the product.
8. Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects
Sample Value - 2 strips/$3.50
Full Size - 40 strips/$69.99
I recently bought a box of whitestrips so it is nice to receive another top and bottom set to use. It is hard though to gauge if you would like the whitestrips with only one application so I think more than one sample needs to be sent.
Overall this brandSampler was a success and I received lots of products that myself and my family can benefit from. I should be receiving my next brandSampler box soon so stay tuned for that upcoming review.
Value of Try Before You Buy BrandSampler - $11.81
