Changing the landscape of the Philippines’ beauty sampling service since 2012, Sample Room is committed in empowering consumers through an interactive online community with the power to try and the power of knowledge. It is committed in helping you find your perfect match when it comes to skincare, cosmetics, and other beauty and wellness domains by trying the product before buying it by providing real and honest details about the product and customer reviews.
To celebrate our three year mark, we have invited members of the media and partner bloggers to a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Guests were treated to a boho-chic themed, relaxing and fun getaway filled with fun activities and de-stressing, and of course, sampling of new and all time fave beauty products from a beauty addict’s favorite brands.
The event brought to life what the website has to offer. We are extremely grateful to our brand partners for the event : Beauty & Butter, Belo Nutraceuticals, C-Lium, Cure, Laneige, Lux, Pantene, Shiseido, Soffia Brushes, Vaseline, and Zenutrients all have prepared different activities so that the guests can try their new offerings, and encouraged everyone to write their reviews on their review board.
Our media partners that day had fun roaming around, trying out the Sample Room experience by sampling on the spot and leaving reviews at the respective booths of our brand partners!
It was quite a fun-filled day, full of great food, great company, and great brands that showcased their products for everyone to try, and make a review of! Everyone just got excited to try them all!
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
There is no doubt every woman has had buyer’s remorse over a beauty product—because it’s not for her skin type or because it was a shade too light… or just because. Imagine a beauty market where every woman is given the power to make informed purchasing decisions and the power to try a beauty breakthrough or an established classic, a drugstore pick or an ultimate splurge before actually buying it. What sounds like every woman’s dream is now a reality with Sample Room. With its huge online community of beauty experts, beauty junkies, and fellow consumers, Sample Room doesn’t only let you choose which free products to try, it also provides real and honest details about the product and customer reviews—more than enough information to help you make an informed decision before you buy.
TRYVERTISING IS THE NEW SHOPPING
Don’t just get into shopping—go Tryvertising. Read real reviews by ladies who have tried a product and assess if it could be right for you before you make the purchase. Only Sample Room lets you “tryverse” easily, without regrets, and anchoring on the Zero Moment Of Truth, where every woman gets everything she needs to learn about a beauty product before making the purchase decision. The premise of Sample Room is simple: It allows you to acquire beauty and lifestyle products in deluxe-size samples, and sometimes in full-size for free with the goal of educating you about your choice products first before you decide to purchase in-store—saving you the hassle of and the time and money from getting huge beauty-ballistic-bottles that apparently don’t work for you. Sample Room is the Philippines’ first and only beauty and lifestyle sampling and review website, which now has over 46,000+ members, 400 featured products, and over 115 partner brands.
Sample Room allows you to specifically choose what you want to try from its well-curated mix of beauty brands and products. All you have to pay for is a minimal amount for shipping & handling fee, and you’ll get the comfort of having your beauty loot delivered at your doorstep.
It works by using earned points as its currency. As a new member, you instantly get 100 points upon registration, which allows you to get as much as 3 sample products in your shopping cart. Points required for acquiring items range from 15 points to 1,000 points, depending on the brand and the item itself. Bar soaps could be for 15 points, a sample size moisturizer could go for 50 points, a good-for-a-week sample of a luxury perfume requires 60 points, and a full-size tube of lipstick could be for 100 points, for instance. With many items requiring minimal points, your 100-startup credit goes quite a long way. You may re-earn the points you’ve spent by rating and reviewing the items you have availed. For instance, if you availed of pre-glued eyelashes for 70 points, rating it on the site instantly earns you 1 incentive point. Writing a review about it and having it approved by the site’s admin gets you an additional 1 incentive point plus 70 points rebate. This way, you can keep on availing for new items throughout your membership. You can also earn 1 point for every registered referral to the site.
If you want to fast track your points acquisition, however, you may opt to become a VIP member and purchase 1,000 points for P649, which you may use to avail of more premium products for two months. The VIP membership also gives you exclusive invites to events, parties, and workshops, earlier notifications for new product uploads, as well as occasional bonus gifts from its brand partners. This VIP membership is renewable every two months.
DIGITAL AND ACTUAL
One of the best things about Sample Room is its real community with members interacting beyond the digital sphere. Apart from the online site, members get the chance to attend beauty events—from summer getaways and makeup sessions to spa parties, beauty blogger get-togethers, and other lifestyle activities and events that help in making every woman knowledgeable and empowered in every beauty aspect while adding to her arsenal of beauty brands.
With Sample Room’s wonderful mix of luxury, niche, and drugstore brands, every woman will definitely find a favorite amongst its brands partners. In many cases, too, samples come in full-sizes such as lipsticks, BB creams, and mascaras, among other thrilling surprises.
