Roommate of the Month for March-May 2017

Hi there, roommates!

We know you’ve been wondering about who the next Roommate of the Month is! Well, the long wait is over. After much hunting and searching, we’ve finally spotted the next roommate who is deserving of the spotlight!

She is none other than 20 year-old beauty blogger and travel consultant, Hanna Nicolas! She has been consistently popping-out of our “roomie radar” as she’s been sharing and posting all her Sample Room beauty loots ever since she became part of the community.

To get to know more about this loyal roomie, we asked her a few little questions…



1. Tell us about you and your blog.

“Writing is my first love, makeup and beauty products come next.During my puberty, I suffered from terrible breakouts and was able to manage keeping them at bay after trying out a lot of products! I then preach to my friends how to keep skin healthy and they began approaching and consulting me about which beauty products they should use. This made me start my own beauty blog, and there I shared my rants and rave reviews about the products that work and did not work for me.”

2. Who are the bloggers you look up to?

“I’ve been silently reading Martha’s blog (beautyjunkee), Liz’s (projectvanity), and Donnarence’s (mylucidintervals) and some other beauty bloggers I know.”

3. What advice can you give to our roommates who are also interested to start their own blogs?

“If blogging makes you happy, just do it. Don’t let any circumstances stop you. Believe in yourself that you can do it and it will come naturally.



1. Share to us your skin care and makeup routines!

“I do the basic skin care routine: cleanse, tone, moisturize and scrub. I don’t mind spending a little beyond my budget just to make sure that what I am using will really suit my skin type.About my makeup routine, I like to keep it simple. I’m not the type who likes putting on layers of foundation. Mine’s more on sunscreen, tinted moisturizer, finely-milled loose powder, and slightly tinted lip balm. In short, fresh look! Haha!”

2. What are the top 5 beauty products you can’t live without?

“Considering my frequent change of mood (lol), right now: a good gentle cleanser, a lightweight moisturizer, a reliable sunscreen, a good BB Cream, and a lip balm will do.



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

“I knew about Sample Room when I was still a student.I was on a tight budget back then, and was so desperate to find the best products for my acne-prone skin. I decided to search for samples online, and that’s when I stumbled upon Sample Room. I decided to give it a try after knowing that I can just use points to get free samples.

Eventually, I found myself splurging on VIP subscriptions because I know I’ll get much more than what I’ve paid for.”

2. How did Sample Room help you in your journey in the world of skincare and makeup?

“With Sample Room I was able to try what’s blazing and trendy in the world of makeup and skin care. It helps me big time to look for products that–who knows–may soon become part of my holy grail items, and to look for products I can talk about in my blog. The best thing is spending a fraction for full-sized products!”

3. What are the best finds you discovered through Sample Room?

“Mostly Belo SunExpert and Zenutrients products. I’m currently obsessing about Belo’s After-Sun Gel and Zenutrient’s CocoHoney Firming Mask!”

4. Any advice for your fellow roommates with regards to their sampling journey?

“Spend on VIP subscriptions now and never miss out on what’s hot! It’s worth it, I promise!”
