Want to receive beauty samples for free? All you need to do is sign up at the Sample Room.
I don’t even remember how I ended up on their site. Maybe from trawling beauty blogs one morning? Anyway, I signed up at the Sample Room, and received 100 points. I then used the points to shop on their site. (Unfortunately right now the site is nearly empty of sample products – wait for them to restock.) I only paid 100 pesos for the delivery fee. You will earn more points by reviewing the products you receive. You may only get three sample products at a time.
I got Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Moisturizing Lotion, Venus & Mars Mineral Eyeshadow in Halo, and Neolia Olive Shampoo and Conditioner. I still have 40 points left. Please restock Sample Room!
Some short reviews:
Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Moisturizing Lotion :I love natural products, and this is one that delivers. I used it on my hands and legs, and it instantly softened my skin – a plus in my air-conditioned workplace. (Dry skin has always been my problem.) The only drawback is the scent. It smells like an ointment. Hope they’d come up with fruity variants!
Venus & Mars Mineral Eyeshadow in Halo :This mineral eyeshadow has good pigmentation. Might be too shimmery for some people, but this will work for nighttime looks. The packaging, though, is a con – I’ve never been a fan of loose powders. This went everywhere when I screwed it open! It’s a waste of product. Pressed eyeshadow please?
I’d buy this, but maybe in another shade. :)
Neolia Olive Shampoo and Conditioner – This has organic products, but is not SLS-free. Bummer. Smell is mild, which may attract men and women averse to strong scents, and the shampoo and conditioner combo leaves my hair smooth, but I won’t replace my own hair products just yet.
