Roommate of the Month for June 2017
Friday, 22 September 2017

 

Hello there, roommates!

We bet that you are all excited to know who’s been consistently popping in our ‘roomie radar’ these past few months! Well then, we, together with our Sample Room detectives, are more than proud to announce who made the cut to our ‘Roommate of the Month’ for June!

The spotlight goes to the 28-year-old Executive Graphic Designer, Princess Peralta!

 

 

She has been our active roommate since 2016 as she shares written and video reviews about her Sample Room finds on her blog, Instagram, and YouTube account.

Curious on how she perfectly blends her art-related profession to her beauty blog, we asked her a few questions.

 

ABOUT PRINCESS’ BLOG

1. Tell us about you and your blog.

“It’s supposed to be a Graphic Design blog. I wanted to share my experience, techniques, and design skills to everyone who aspires to become a Graphic Designer.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to push it through due to work schedules. Instead, I found myself reviewing beauty products and then came up with a creative idea to combine my design skills and interest in beauty products into a blog. I called it ‘Beauty & Art’.”

 

2. When did you start your blog and what inspired you to create one?

“I started blogging way back 2008 when I was in college. I found myself reading others’ blogs that inspired me to do my own and I actually didn’t expect that I would definitely love it. As far as I remember, I was a Tabulas blogger during that time until I switched to Tumblr then to Blogspot.”

 

3. Who is/are the blogger/s that you look up to?

“I always look up to Nikki Tiu (AskMeWhats) as she’s one of my favorite top beauty bloggers. Also, I am inspired by her lifestyle and how she takes care of her family. She’s a smart and beautiful woman inside and out.”

 

4. Top 3 advice you can give to our roommates who are interested to start up a blog.

“If you want to be a blogger either on beauty, travel, fashion, lifestyle, or anything that will suit your interest, don’t hesitate to be one; just do it.

You don’t need a luxury camera or a laptop to start doing your craft. You can do it even in your own smart phone. I used my Samsung Galaxy J5 when I started blogging. All you need is a creative mind, and a unique purpose and content.”

 

ON HER BEAUTY ROUTINE

1. Share us your skincare routine!

“Since I have a normal to combination skin, most of the skin care products I use are oily and acne-free formulated essentials that can be found in any local drugstore and mall beauty sections.

I do the basic and simple skincare routine, starting with removing my makeup using the Esfolio Green Tea Facial Cleansing Tissue, and then cleanse my face using the Pond’s Clear Solution which is one of my favorite products to control and protect my face from breakouts.

For moisturizer, I use QuickFX Pimple Eraser as it helps my skin to be well-moisturized and pimple-free in just a minute. For my dark spot areas, I use Pond’s Day Cream then, Esfolio Aloe Vera Mist to keep my face hydrated. The last step would be putting a face mask. I always make sure that I put on face masks twice a week.”

 

2. How about your make-up routine?

“I wanted to make it simple, fresh, and elegant. The products I always prepare are sunscreen, primer, BB cream, powder, eyebrow, lip tint, and blush.”

 

3. What are the top 5 beauty products (skincare and make-up) that you can’t live without?

“To make sure that I don’t get breakouts, I can’t live without my makeup remover which is the Cleanser Pond’s Clear Solution, Pond’s Day Cream, and QuickFX Pimple Eraser.

For makeup, since my face looks pale, I can’t live without a powder, lip balm or lip tint and of course, an eyebrow pencil to keep me feeling fresh and beautiful.”

 

ABOUT HER SAMPLE ROOM JOURNEY

1. When did you first find out about Sample Room?

“I found out Sample Room from my favorite beauty bloggers and decided to create my own account. When I made my first sampling, I immediately purchased the VIP membership. It’s really worth trying as their goal “Try before you buy” has helped me to explore various products and share it to my readers.”

 

2. How did Sample Room help you in your journey into the world of skincare and make-up?

“When I started blogging, I invest and buy products using my own money. With my Sample Room VIP Membership, I can still save up and try products before I buy. This site guided me to widen my knowledge in terms of choosing skincare or makeup products and also, they helped me to grow my beauty blogging journey. Most of the products that I started to review were from Sample Room.”

 

3. What were your best finds that you discovered through our site?

“Of course, the Belo products! I also love the Cathy Doll Ready 2 White Milky Cream, Dove Advanced Care Ultimate White Deodorant and their Straight & Silky Shampoo and Hair Conditioner.”

 

4. Do you see yourself still sampling in Sample Room in 3-5 years?

“Sample Room is a part of my beauty blogging journey. I would love and definitely still sampling in the future.”

 

5. Any advice for your fellow roommates for their sampling journey?

“Sample Room is a perfect starting point for everyone who aspires to become a beauty blogger. I would recommend you to get the VIP membership. It’s really worth it! You can ‘Try Before You Buy’ and you can review products as well!”

Oh and take note, roomies! Our Sample Room detectives are always on duty. 😉

I was convinced at an early age that being natural was a great and admirable trait —a belief that stemmed from my parents’ inclination towards ‘inner beauty’ and my early exposure to romantic comedies. This concept has followed me all my life which unsurprisingly, led me into developing an affinity towards natural care products.

My zest for investing in natural items have somehow increased when my older cousin gave birth to her first born daughter. Being the youngest in our family, I treated my niece as a younger sister and partly took the responsibility in taking care of her and overseeing her activities when my cousin was not around. Overtime, I felt so invested and completely attached to her that I made the conscious decision to help my cousin in selecting her baby products. And being the ‘naturals aficionado’ I am, I wanted her to experience the same kind of care and mildness I got from natural products, starting with this latest baby powder from Sample Room.

 

 

With their impressive commitment in providing natural and mild baby products that are environment friendly, Tiny Buds has proven their genuine care for consumers, especially their concern for the safety of every baby that will use them. Being the first brand to introduce a baby powder made from 100% Rice Grains, Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder’s benefits and mildness is truly deserving of its international acclaim.

 

 

Trying it out on my niece’s skin, we noticed how it’s soft and smooth texture, and its calming scent gave her the soothing feeling she craves. Without toxins that can be coarse to her skin, I was even more persuaded that products made with natural ingredients are perfect for babies.

When compared with other talc-free powders that my niece had tried before, Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder doesn’t mix with her sweat which keeps her dry and fresh despite playing all day long!


After a week’s usage, we have noticed no signs of skin irritation on her at all! Which made me pretty confident that she still feels the soothing effect she initially experienced, whenever we apply this baby powder. Upon seeing its cooling and lasting effect on my niece, it urged me to try it out for myself.

 

 

I started using this natural baby powder daily and like my niece’s experience, the powder stayed on my skin. It didn’t mix with my sweat as well, a dreadful occurrence that would usually clog my pores and result to breakouts! Who would want that, right? But fortunately, with Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder, I was in the clear!

It has been fun finding another great product to trust, and to include in my own and my niece’s arsenal of natural care goodies. Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder proved that products made with 100% natural ingredients not only gives us the option to go natural; it also delivers its promising honest-to-goodness claims!

So for all the daddies, mommies, sisters, brothers, and aunts out there who may or may not be as lenient towards natural products as I am, give Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder a try for your babies, younger siblings, nieces, nephews, and even for yourself, and discover how this baby must-have offers a different kind of care that’s #NaturalToTheTiniestDrop! 😉

How long does it take us to be selfie-ready? For girls like us who love taking photos, it will always be our top priority to be fresh-looking and naturally blooming before hitting that shutter button. To nail that perfect look, we always allot our time and effort to do quick touch-ups – concealing dark under eye circles, putting on powder and blush to our cheeks, and the like – so as not to look dull and pale in our pictures.

Yet sometimes, touch-ups are not as quick and reliable as we think it is.  It’s kind of frustrating that we end up wasting so much time to religiously achieve that natural-looking and beautiful blushing face, isn’t it? But why not start having it with a soap that cares to give us that beautiful blush and brightest glow in a more refreshing way? 😉

 

We don’t have to worry too much as this incredible Glutathione and Vitamin C-infused face and body soap from SkinWhite will not only aid us to be instant selfie-ready; it’ll also help us discover our brightest look even without applying makeup!

 

 

To add, it has an Advanced TriPower Technology and Vitanourish Formula that fight melanin production, prevent skin darkening, and help block nasty UV rays as it provides a full-on moisturization to our skin keeping us looking and feeling good inside-out. And because it’s made with twice the power of Gluta and whitening, it claims to give a beautiful blush white skin in as fast as 7 days*

Since I got a shot to lay my hands on this creamy floral scented soap alone, I decided to focus more on my recent experience with it and how it did its job in giving its honest-to-goodness claims.

 

 

Upon using SkinWhite Glutathione + Vitamin C Soap, I was gladly able to savor my bathing experience as this whitening bar quickly lathered on my skin while spreading its creamy floral scent around the bathroom! And surprisingly, it was able to deliver that subtle yet noticeable change in just a week usage.

 

 

This is me on my 8th day of using the soap and I would say that, indeed, SkinWhite Glutathione + Vitamin C Soap turned my dull and pale face skin into a bright, blooming, and blushing white one – giving me that instant selfie-ready look! Now, I won’t have to take a break for a quick touch-up before taking pictures with my friends or portraits of myself as this baby already gave me that perfect, natural-looking complexion. Even though it’s subtle, I believe that it’ll bring more visible results after continued use. For now, I’m feeling more confident to ace my ‘selfie’ and ‘groufie’ game! 

So, for our dear roomies who want to get that glowing ‘selfie-ready’ look, give SkinWhite Glutathione + Vitamin C Soap a try and you might just #DiscoverYourBrightest! 😉

Discover your brightest with the 2x power of glutathione and whitening of SkinWhite PowerWhitening Glutathione + Vitamin C Soap! It has anti-oxidant properties that work from the inside of your skin for that radiantly glowing skin on the outside.

Plus, it comes with an Advanced Tripower Technology and Vitanourish Formula that are responsible for skin’s full-on moisturization as they safely combat the three stages of melanin production, prevent skin darkening, and help block harmful UV rays from entering your skin*

*For best results, apply SkinWhite Glutathione + Vitamin C Lotion after bathing.
