Roommate of the Month for March 2021

As cliché as it sounds, life is short – so we should live life, enjoy it, and make the most out of it as we don’t know what tomorrow may bring. Take our career for example, doing what we love and what we’re passionate about can make us feel more fulfilled, productive, and live life with a sense of purpose.

Angela Villarta, our March Roommate of the Month, knows that there’s no better time than now to do what she loves. Her dedication for vlogging and content creation has pushed her to grow, but also enjoy her journey and be an inspiration for others.

Get to know more about Angel’s story through our Q&A!


1. Tell us about you and your vlog:

“Hi, I'm Angela Villarta or you can simply call me Angel. I am 24 years old from Manila. I'm truly passionate in creating content about beauty, lifestyle, fashion, and travel. I also do shopping hauls, unboxing, and product reviews on my YouTube channel and Instagram account.”

2. When did you start your vlog and what inspired you to create one?

“I started creating my YouTube channel way back in 2016 and it's all about makeup tutorial. During that time, I'm not really active in creating content since I'm still a college student and I'm really shy on camera. But last year, March 10, 2020 to be exact, I got inspired when I get back home after climbing at Mt. Pulag. So I started to be active again on my YouTube channel and I also used my Instagram account as my personal blog. With consistent uploads, honest reviews, and quality postings on my Instagram account, I started receiving requests for brand collaborations and I also got paid sponsorship from big brands.

I'm very thankful to those people who trusted me. To my mom, who consistently shared all my posts with her friends and relatives. To my sister who provides me good quality equipment for my vlogging. To my family and friends who inspire and support me all the time. They are my inspiration."

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

“First is Toni Sia, because I love the way she's being so pure, humble and natural when she talks about her flaws, insecurities, and anything in between. The second is Rei Germar, I love her travel vlogs. Both of them inspired me a lot to create my own YouTube channel.”

4. Top 3 pieces of advice you can give to our roommates who are interested to start up a vlog.

“My top 3 pieces of advice are:

1. Find your niche. You need to know your interests in order to create a unique and catchy vlog brand. This one will help you to introduce yourself to this industry. Make sure to be authentic, real, and honest to your readers or viewers so that you can make a good connection with them.

2. Have a good quality content. You don't need to spend a lot of money on good equipment, you just need to improvise and be creative. You can use your phone camera, and natural light is the key!

3. START CREATING YOUR VLOG NOW! No more what if's or next time. Do it now! Do it for yourself. Do it because you're passionate about it."


1. Share with us your skincare routine!

“My skincare routine is very simple because I believe less is better when it comes to skincare routine.

I always start with cleansing my face using Pond's Anti-bacterial Facial Foam. The next step is to put my toner, serum, moisturizer, and eye cream at night. And for daytime, it's the same procedure but instead of eye cream, I put my sunscreen and Pond's Anti-bacterial Refreshing Face Mist. I also make sure to drink a lot of water to make my skin more hydrated and healthy.”

2. How about your makeup routine?

“For my makeup routine, I use light foundation or tinted sunscreen. Next is my multipurpose blush for cheeks, eyes, and lip. And of course, the most important part of my makeup routine is my brows and mascara. Because for me brows and mascara is life!”

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

“I can't live without my favorite mascara, multipurpose blush, tinted sunscreen, eyebrow pencil, face mist, and makeup remover. “


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

“I saw someone posted on their Instagram account about Sample Room and I got curious about it. That's why, I decided to check Sample Room’s Instagram account and site."

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

“Sample Room is very helpful for me. Because whenever I try to buy skincare or makeup products I got the chance to try them first for free and I'm also thankful because I have the opportunity to share my experience and thoughts about the products that I tried from Sample Room.

And of course, product reviews from my fellow roommates help me pick which products I need to try or which suits my skin.”

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

“My best finds that I discovered from Sample Room is the St. Ives Sheet Masks and the Pond's Anti-bacterial Facial Foam and Refreshing Face Mist. I super enjoyed using them on my face.”

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

“Definitely, yes! As I've said before, Sample Room is a very helpful site for me, and I still want to learn and experience more amazing products from Sample Room.”

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

“My advice for my fellow roommates is to take samples that you only need or that suit your skin type. In that way, you can share your honest thoughts with your readers, which can also help them decide which products they need to try. Always remember: Be honest, be authentic, and be real, when it comes to your reviews about the products. Also, don't be afraid to try and discover new things from Sample Room. Because every product in Sample Room is worth trying!”
