I'm really a sucker when it comes to beauty products. Whenever I decide to buy a product that I have never tried before, I always end up with the terrible ones and regret ever purchasing it. There was one time I bought something online and as far as I could remember it was a set of whitening soaps and it was kinda costly. The morning I took my bath and tried the soap on, I eventually felt something irritating on my face. I didn't bother at first because I was thinking maybe the soap was just taking effect. Days went by, my face's t-zone was starting to turn pink and I kinda felt a mild burning sensation. I immediately stopped using the soap thinking that it's not good to my skin anymore, especially on my face. There I realized that we, as customers, should have the privilege to try beauty products before investing a lot of money on actually using them. 

Who wouldn't want to try the product first before buying them? Thank goodness I found out about Sample Room. It's here to give us that option.

Sample Room is a sampling site that banks on the power of free product sampling. It is an online community that changes your beauty-shopping pattern; and an interactive community where your opinions matter and where all beauty lovers are valued.

You DON'T need to:

- Take a risk at a full-sized product that may not work for you or may give you an allergic reaction.
- Rely on reviews alone that might not jive with your skin type (as you get to try the product yourself).
- Waste money on a product the might not work for you.

You will be ABLE to:

- Patch-test, and road-test the product you are interested in purchasing- if the product suits you and works well with your skin.
- Experience the product, and decide after finishing a sample size if the product is right for you.
- Read reviews from consumers who have the same skin type as yours.
- Enjoy your purchase, as it is a well-researched and well-informed purchase. Definitely value for your money!

  12. That is such a good point. Why can't we try before we buy. I'm always reluctant to buying beauty stuff because I have sensitive skin so I don't really bother.


    1. Yes, they really have the most brilliant idea. This is the answer to our needs! Thank you Sonia for your thoughts :)

  13. This is a great idea! I am allergic to some eye make up and am not exactly sure what causes the reaction...sampling is just what I need. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Sampling is really what we need to know if we are allergic to a product or not. You're welcome Shiela and thanks for dropping by :)

  14. This sounds like a great idea. Next time I'm in the mood to try some new products I will give sample room a try. Thanks for sharing this with us.


  15. Why can't we try before we buy.
