Roommate of the Month for March 2019

Being a parent is one of the most gratifying titles a person can hold. But the responsibility that comes with it is no easy feat. Mom’s in particular often have to sacrifice things they love doing the most or set aside favorite hobbies in order to put focus on the well-being of their families. And often than not, they forget to take care of themselves as they are busy putting the family’s needs first before theirs.

But for Debbie Domingo Moreno, our March #RoommateOfTheMonth, a hectic schedule and a busy lifestyle is not an excuse to let go of self-care, our dreams, and our passions. With the hopes of inspiring moms her age to find their inner confidence and be able to age gracefully, Debbie decided to share her beauty know-how's and favorite Sample Room finds on her social media pages all while trying to balance the responsibilities of being a mom, an entrepreneur, and a government employee at the same time.



Let’s get to know more about this boss momma as she answers a few questions from us about her beauty and sampling journey!



1. Tell us about you and your love for beauty.

“I am a kikay working MOMpreneur. Juggling work, business and passion is no easy task. I want to make sure everything is in order and make sure that nothing is left out. The struggle is real I must say. Despite the busy schedule, I really want to look my best. That’s why I always see to it that I am fully equipped with products that can help me boost my self-confidence and conquer the age that life is throwing back at me. I am not afraid of aging but I want to do it gracefully. ♥”

2. When did you start and what inspired you to share your beauty finds on your social media accounts?

“I just started going public last September 2018. I realized that I am not getting any younger and there’s no better time to start it than now. I want to inspire moms my age to still look good and feel good about themselves despite having little time trying to juggle several responsibilities.”

3. Who are the bloggers that you look up to?

“I really love Kryz Uy, Nay Isha, Verniece Enciso, Anne Clutz, Love Chella and Mhay Guerrero.”



1. Share with us your skincare routine!

“My daytime routine includes:

STEP 1: Washing my face with kojic soap

STEP 2: Cleanser

STEP 3: Toner

My nighttime routine includes:

STEP 1: Micellar Water to remove make-up

STEP 2: Washing my face with kojic soap

STEP 3: Cleanser

STEP 4: Eye cream

STEP 5: Rejuvenating cream”


2. How about your makeup routine?

“I usually do my everyday make-up look like this:

STEP 1: Primer. For my skin type, I choose a primer with a pink undertone.

STEP 2: Foundation or BB cream

STEP 3: Loose Powder. I apply loose powder before putting pressed powder because when I don’t, I usually experience skin breakouts.

STEP 4: Pressed powder. What I usually do is that I spray facial mist to the sponge before applying the powder to my face.

STEP 5: Eyebrow gel

STEP 6: Blush stick

STEP 7: Lipstick”


3. What are the top 5 beauty products (skincare and makeup) that you can't live without?

“The Top 5 beauty products that I can’t live without are:

1. Kojic Soap

2. Rejuvenating cream

3. Brow gel

4. Loose powder

5. Lipstick”



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

“I first discovered Sample Room when I stumbled upon a post on Instagram. When I learned that I can try out products just using points, I immediately signed up for it.”

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

“Having sensitive skin, I always find it hard to find products that will match my skin type without my pocket suffering for it. I have to buy products only to find out that it’s not good for my skin. Through Sample Room, I get to try the product first so I’ll have an idea if a certain product is really for me before I spend a hefty amount buying it.”

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

“I love the Derma-C Serum Face Mask, the Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Day Cream and the Naturals by Watsons Argan Oil Conditioner.”

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

“Definitely, yes! I love trying out Sample Room’s new products. There are lots of products to discover and I am always checking on them if there’s something new I want to try.”

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

“Try products that you are only interested in. You need not to try all of the available ones just for the sake of trying it. Try it because you really want to use it. And make sure to make an honest review based on what you’ve experienced.”


It is quite overwhelming when we have a lot on our plate but once we find the right balance between our day-to-day activities and responsibilities, we’ll find that we are much more capable of doing a lot more for ourselves and for our families. And just like Debbie, no matter how busy life gets, we should always give time in doing things that make us happy so that we can live life to the fullest and conquer life’s challenges confidently.
