Roommate Of The Month for August 2019

Love and acceptance of one’s self is not an easy thing to do, especially now when a lot of people post about their seemingly perfect lifestyle on social media. But Jennifer Rose Vivar, our August #RoommateOfTheMonth realized at a young age of 17 that being beautiful means being yourself and loving yourself despite the flaws. And once we've learned to appreciate and love everything about ourselves, it'll change our overall perspective and magical things will start to happen in more ways than one.

Let’s get to know more about this charming teen as she answers a few questions from us!


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

“I am a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see and to experience. My love for beauty is a reflection of what I believe in. I believe that to be beautiful means to be yourself, and loving yourself is one of the most magical things you can do.”

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

“I love watching beauty reviews online and being active in social media. When I thought about sharing my beauty reviews, I kept on thinking that no one will be interested in what I will share. But surprisingly some of my friends and followers responded to what I share. I am just a newbie though. I just started to post about my beauty finds last year.”

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

“I am an avid fan of Andrea ”Blythe” Brillantes. I love her not just for her acting skills, but also for her beauty and fashion style. Watching her vlogs on YouTube also completes my day.”


1. Share with us your skincare routine!

“Since I am still on my teens, I try not to use a lot of products for my face so I just usually stick to the basics:

· Drinking around 8-10 glass of water or better to drink water every hour

· Sleep early

· Be careful when using beauty product to avoid side effects on my skin”

2. How about your makeup routine?

“Since we aren’t really allowed to wear makeup everyday in school, I only apply makeup during events. It’s just a simple BB cream, blush, eyebrow, and liptint then I’m good to go!”

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

“I can’t live without:

· Liptint

· Cheektint

· Eyebrow pencil

· Hair and Scalp Shield

· Face Soothing Gel (Night)”


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

“I discovered Sample Room just this year while browsing through Instagram.”

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

“I like that you can read reviews on different products because it is a great research when I am trying to look for new products to try. I also like that it gives me the opportunity to share my experiences in using the products as well.”

3. What were your best finds that you discovered through our site?“My best finds are:

· Derma-C Brightening Serum Face Mask to keep my skin hydrated and glowing.

· Belo SunExpert Hair and Scalp Shield to keep my scalp protected.

· Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Ultra Treatment Crème to keep my crowning glory soft and shiny.”

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

“Of course! Sample Room is a great tool to everyone to have an opportunity to try products and see if it is a fit for you before buying it in the market.”

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

“It feels different when you know that you are being helped and you are helping others too. From one to another we are making a different impact by sharing our reviews.”

Like how Jennifer believes in loving one self, she also believes in the power of sharing knowledge to others with the things she loves. Which is why while using Sample Room as one of her platforms to learn from others, she also sees it as an opportunity to share her reviews and experiences by posting about it on her social media account.
