“Try before you buy” – This is exactly what we want to do when we make any purchase, whether it be clothes, shoes, accessories, and more so when it comes to makeup and skincare. Who among here have a stash of beauty products on their vanity table that were only used once, twice or thrice just because they didn’t work with their skin? What a waste, don’t you think?! Your hard-earned money down the drain because you bought a full-sized product without even trying it out. Although sample-sized products do exist, not all brands have them. Well, if they do, more often than not, you still have to purchase something from the brand before they include samples in your loot. This is why sampling websites have been a big trend these days. Most of us, if not all, would want to TRY BEFORE WE BUY! As a proof, this year we’ve seen sampling websites budding here and there, but I wouldn’t really say Sample Room is one of them. It’s a whole different concept, which I’m sure will excite everyone! Sample Room gives product sampling a new twist. Why? How?
What is Sample Room?
Sample Room is a sampling site that banks on the power of free product sampling. It is an online community that changes your beauty-shopping pattern; and an interactive community where your opinions matter and where all beauty lovers are valued.
What makes it different from other sampling sites?
To keep it short and simple, samples are supposed to be free right? As mentioned above, Sample Room is giving them for FREE! We, consumers, even get to choose which samples we want from their list! Unbelievable? Well, as the song goes, the best things in life are FREE! LOL! 😀
Also, more than just a sampling site, it’s an interactive room, where beauty enthusiasts share the same passion. Sample Room provides reviews from local consumers who have availed of the samples, beauty experts and partner bloggers- making it a one-stop avenue where beauty shoppers get to read, learn and try all at the same time! Oh, and I’m excited to share with you all that I’m one of Sample Room’s partner bloggers! 😀 It’s truly an honor to be part of this beauty room! 😀
What are the benefits of Sample Room to consumers?
- Patch-test, and road-test the product you are interested in purchasing- if the product suits you and works well with your skin
- Experience the product, and decide after finishing a sample size if the product is right for you- No need to take risk at a full-sized product!
- Read reviews from consumers who have the same skin type as yours.
- Enjoy your purchase, as it is a well-researched and well-informed purchase. Definitely value for your money!
