Roommate Of The Month for April 2020

In this day and age where new products are being introduced left and right, it’s sometimes difficult to control ourselves and differentiate what will work for us and what will not before buying them. Although at a young age of 21, our April Roommate of the Month, Andrea Severano knows that being practical is the way to go to save up for her future.

With Sample Room, she was able to test out products she loves that evetually became her constants. It also made her discover her interest in sharing product reviews through her Youtube channel, blog and social media platforms.

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

“I am Andrea Severano. I’m just a simple person and I think I always find beauty in simplicity.”

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

“I started sharing beauty contents on my social media accounts about a year ago. I got so inspired by the beauty vlogger that I follow, so it led me to creating my own content as well.”

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

“I’m a huge fan of fashion and beauty icons Heart Evangelista, Tina Yong, and Raiza Contawi. I look up to them and they inspire me.”



  1. Share with us your skincare routine!

“For my skincare routine, I start with cleansing my face with soap and water. Then I apply toner, and use a sheet mask at least 2x a week. I follow it with serum, acne spot treatment, moisturizer and sunscreen. I sometimes do exfoliating too!”

  1. How about your makeup routine?

“These days, I rarely wear any makeup at all because I'm focused on my skincare as I have acne-prone skin. But, whenever I do my makeup, I always start with a moisturizer and sunscreen. Once all of that’s absorbed, I put on some powder, lip balm, and just curl my lashes. I don’t really do a lot for my makeup routine because I like my makeup very simple and good for everyday.”

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

“For my skincare, I can’t live without these products:

  • LuxQueen's LuxBar Face & Body Soap (cleanser)
  • LuxQueen's Secret Radiance Sun Shield (sunscreen)
  • LuxQueen's Secret Radiance Toner (toner)
  • A.stop Clear Serum (serum)
  • LuxQueen's Secret Radiance Skin Balm (night cream)

And for my makeup, these are the products I can’t live without:

  • Careline or Forever Living Lip balm
  • M+Cream Moisturizer
  • Liptint
  • LipLux Lipstick
  • Powder”


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

“I found out about Sample Room back in 2019 on a sponsored ad. I got curious so I explored the website and then discovered they have free sample products to try. I got hooked and have been using Sample Room ever since.”

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

“Through Sample Room, I've became more practical in life. I can always try the products in small portions first before actually buying the full size. It saves me more money indeed and I can try different products I’ve never seen or heard of before!”

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

“The best finds I've got from Sample Room are: Head & Shoulder Supreme Moisture Shampoo & Supreme Smooth Conditioner, the Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Wipes. and the Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Ultra Treatment Crème.”

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

“Yes, definitely!”

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

“I like to be practical nowadays, so I suggest you get the products you really want try and you think that you will use in the long run. And maximize the points that you have to try out new products as well.

To more discoveries on our sampling journey!!”
