Sample 5

A month ago, I was invited by Sample Room to experience a day of R&R at the beautiful Balay Indang for their 3rd year anniversary. I was so excited to go ’cause I’d been dying to get a day of pure relaxation and “me time”. If you have noticed, I don’t really attend events that much due to my work schedule but I really tried to make time for Sample Room. If you haven’t heard of them, then you are so missing out!

Sample 1

Sample Room is a website where you can order samples (sometimes full size!!) of the beauty products that are locally available for FREE. You can specifically choose the products that you want to try on their website, pay for the shipping then just wait for it to arrive to your doorstep.

I strongly believe in their concept of “trying before buying”. As a very curious beauty product consumer, this is something that I absolutely need in my life. I take risks at finding the products that best work for me- just imagine how much I’d already wasted on trying and trying and trying until I find what I’m looking for. You can’t expect products to be what they claim to be. Sure, it might be for others but in the en, it will still depend on your body and preferences.

Sample Room is more than a sampling website. After trying out their samples, you can write reviews of the products on their website. You, too, can read honest consumer reviews of the products before choosing the samples to get. They have already created a community where people can come together and learn about each others experiences. Cool, isn’t it?

I’m so excited to share my experience at Sample Room’s media launch. I must say, it’s one of the best events that I’d ever been to (lol, as if I’d been to many). But, please scroll on~

I took some snaps of Balay Indang on the way to the event area. This place is so preeetty. Great job, Sample Room, for choosing the perfect venue! I already felt relaxed seeing these. <3

We were greeted by these cute pink mini luggage (which we will use for the activity later) and some pretty wreath head pieces at the registration!

I didn’t know that the theme was Bohemian. Still, I somehow blended in. Hehe!

First on the schedule was to have lunch! Food was really good.

Then, it was time for a talk. The owners of Sample Room were introduced. They shared about their inspiration in coming up with their concept of “tryvertising”. Nothing beats experience to really learn so I’m a real fan. What sets them apart from the others is that they let you choose which products to try- YAY!

After the talk, we moved on to the main activity! We were given a checklist where we’re supposed to go to each of the partner brand’s booth and review their products.

The Sample Room’s partners are Beauty & Butter, Belo Nutraceuticals, C-Lium, Cure, Laneige, Lux, Pantene, Shiseido, Soffia Brushes, Vaseline, and Zenutrients which are only some of the best brands out there!

The brand that I look forward to the most: Laneige! They carry one of my 2 ultimate fave cushions.

If you watched Full House and Descendants of the Sun, the lead actress, Song Hye Kyo, has been their endorser for several years now. She also uses some of these products. Her skin is #goals!

I reviewed their lip gloss. I immediately felt like Song Hye Kyo when I had put it on. Lol! She was sporting glossy lips on DOTS if you didn’t notice. Hihi!

My current hair conditioner. I’ve been a Pantene-user since childhood. This product is THAT good.

According to Pantene, my hair’s health is at 60%. I’m actually surprised. Apparently, after all the bleaching, my hair is still alive! Yaaas!

We wrote our reviews on a notepad and stuck them on the boards.

A brand that I recently welcomed in my daily routine. Their intensive care lotion saved me from my forever dry skin.

This new brand in the market, Lux, was there, too. If you’ve been curious, it’s time to try it out at Sample Room.

I wanted to win the Cure Aqua Gel but I suck at these. Lol!

I heard good things about Baby Foot, but I keep forgetting to try my sample.

Kill those dry skin! This product is amazing. Japanese beauty products are almost always super good.

I gave my Shiseido samples to my mom. Hehe! I only hear good things about this brand but I’m not very open to trying skincare products on my face that much – maybe one day. Hehe!

I have their foundation brush! So soft! *.*

If you’re a fan of natural products, try this one out! I know people who use their whitening soap and get good results from it.

Not your ordinary juice! It has collagen in it and I didn’t notice at all.

Collagen has countless benefits! The secret to younger looking skin!~

Beauty and Butter was giving free mani-pedi. Sadly, I didn’t have enough time. 🙁

I was able to enjoy a free foot massage, though. Just what I needed!
