Unboxing my first sample from SampleRoom

Posted on: December 13, 2012

One of the recent interesting things going around the beauty blogging sphere is this thing called Sample Room. It’s a site where you get to try beauty products through free samples. The mechanism here is very simple: upon signing up you are given 100 points with which you can claim samples for certain amounts of points each. You pay a minimal amount for shipping, then you receive your sample straight at your home. You try out this sample, then go back to Sample Room, write a review for the product you tried, then you get your points back! As a bonus, you get extra points for writing a review! The aim of course is to make Sample Room a review hub for beauty products.

I signed up shortly after Sample Room went live. Unfortunately there must have been hundreds of other girls who are waiting for that moment, and I ran out of samples to try in the first round of samples. Fortunately, a few days later Sample Room restocked and I was able to score a Benefit Porefessional sample. It was a breeze to go through the check out process. Unfortunately, I chose GCash as a method of payment, which meant I had to pay an extra Php20 on top of the Php100 delivery fee all because I paid through a GCash outlet. Perhaps I will try to use GCash through my phone instead next time. Or use Paypal.

On to the actual unboxing!

I ordered and paid last December 7, and the package arrived December 10! They are pretty fast! It came wrapped in the blue XSEND envelope, and inside is a brown paper bag with the Sample Room sticker seal.

Inside is the Porefessional sample, which came in a very attractive box.

Opening it up, I finally see the tiny tube of Porefessional nestled inside, with nice illustrations on how to apply it.

Here’s the actual tube alone.

To show you how tiny this tube is, I put it beside a standard gel pen. It is after all just a sample.

There you have it! I will have a separate post for the review of the product itself.
