A few weeks ago, it was a beautiful day at Balai Indang when Sample Room finally had their official launch for friends from the media, their partner brands, partner bloggers and bloggers circle members.
So I'm sure that a lot of you already know about Sample Room because I have been talking about it over and over here on my blog, but just in case you're not,this is what it's all about.
There is no doubt every woman has had buyer's remorse over a beauty product- because it's not for her skin type or because it was a shade too light... or just because. Imagine a beauty market where every woman is given the power to make informed purchasing decisions and the power to try a beauty breakthrough or an established classic, a drugstore pick or an ultimate splurge before actually buying it. What sounds like every woman's dream is now a reality with Sample Room, which has been changing the landscape of the Philippines' beauty sampling service since 2012.
These are the beautiful ladies of Sample Room with the host for the day, Ingrid:
Sophie, Diana, Nats and Kaths
As Sophie told us during the launch, the concept is Tryvertising. Read real reviews by ladies who have tried a product and assess if it could be right for you before you make the purchase. Only Sample Room lets you "tryverse" easily, without regrets, and anchoring on the Zero Moment of Truth, when every woman gets everything she needs to learn about a beauty product before making the purchase decision.
Here's my vlog during the event. It was a fun-filled, activity packed day.

I even won a dream catcher that matches my outfit perfectly!
Gave it to Jes because she really wanted it. Haha!
In layman's term, you can get beauty and lifestyle products (usually deluxe sizes, sometimes full) for free. This way you can "sample" the items first before buying in-store.
At Sample Room, there's also a product review section where you can review the products you got to help educate other people as well. In turn, you actually get your points back to use for another sampling run.
There are several beauty boxes out there but what's different with Sample Room, you don't pay any monthly fees and you choose what you want to try from its well-curated mix of beauty brands and products.

As I mentioned, it's a "point system". As a new member, you instantly get 100 points which allows yu to get as much as 3 samples. You may re-earn the points by rating and reviewing the items you availed. And you can also earn 1 point for every registered referral to the site.
If you want to fast track your points acquisition, however, you may opt to become a VIP member and purchase 1,000 points for P649, which you may use to avail of more premium products for two months. The VIP membership also gives you exclusive invites to events, parties, and workshops, earlier notifications for new product uploads, as well as occasional bonus gifts from its brand partners. This VIP membership is renewable every two months.
