Roommate of the Month for January 2021

Self-confidence is a hard earned crown you wear on your head. It is the trust you build in yourself - in your strength, abilities, capabilities, and accepting everything you are in between, both your best assets and even your flaws. While everyone occasionally has self-doubts, it is very important to not let it get in your head and focus on the things that make you happy and uniquely you.

Take our January Roommate of the Month as an example, Cezka Artificio has had her share of lows with insecurities and self-doubt; but she picked herself up, mastered up the confidence to accept and embrace all that is her, and she has never felt more beautiful ever since!

Get to know more about this proud and confident gal through our Q&A!


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

“Just a short story – I’m always the chubby girl. Before, I wanted a skin and a body that the media told me I must have in order to have value. I wanted a clearer skin and thinner thighs like those women from magazines. Then one day, I come to realize that my so-called “imperfections” was actually an asset I shouldn’t be ashamed of. Since then, I started taking care of myself and flaunting what I have. Not because it’s what’s acceptable to society, but because it’s what’s acceptable to ME. And through that new found confidence, people started adoring me even more.”

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

“I started joining Brand Ambassador searches last August 2020, mid-pandemic. It’s been my dream for so long and I’m so happy that I’m finally doing it now. The people around me kept pushing me to do YouTube and share my beauty routine, and that’s how I started posting my discoveries. I want to become an inspiration to the people around me because they also inspire me a lot.

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

“The bloggers that I look up to are Ry Velasco, Toni Sia, and Rei Germar.”


  1. Share with us your skincare routine!

“Currently, I am only using two products for my skincare routine – the Pond’s White Beauty Perfect Potion Essence and the Pond’s White Beauty Serum Burst Cream which I got from Sample Room. I really love the combination of these two because it gives me a bouncy and dewy feeling on my skin whenever I use it.”

  1. How about your makeup routine?

“My makeup routine when I go outside the house is just sunscreen, concealer, mascara and liptint or lipstick (depends on my mood) and highlighter for that extra glow.”

  1. 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:

  • Cleanser
  • Sunscreen
  • Liptint
  • Highlighter
  • Toner”


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

“I discovered Sample Room just last year, back in October.”

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

“Sample Room really had a big part in my life ever since I signed up because I love to try new products and it’s awesome that I can try it for free. I was able to discover new brands and products that have become a staple in my kit. I like that I was able to try it personally and share it with my family as well.”

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

“The best find that I discovered in Sample Room is the Belo SunExpert Transparent Mist SPF50 and PA+++. I rarely use sunscreen before but since I tried this one, I always use it. I really love this and it is very easy and convenient to use.”

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

“Yes, I still see myself trying new products in Sample Room. I’m just fairly new but I already availed the VIP Membership because I really love trying new products with Sample Room.”

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

“My advice to my fellow roommates is that don’t be afraid to explore new products but always read first the reviews or recommendations of such product for you to be able to know if this product will work for you or if it really fits you so that you won’t regret buying or availing it. Always be a wise buyer and a best user. ”
