Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

My favorite Sample Room finds

I've been a Sample Room blogger since the service first launched in the Philippines two years ago. I'm proud to be! I love how people can choose the samples they want at SR (for free, practically!) and to buy more points if they wish. Options are always good especially for those who have limited resources to allocate to beauty products.

There are a lot of great finds at SR, but below are my favorites so far, i.e., the ones I regularly use ever since I got them (except for the most recent one). You see I'm not really adventurous when it comes to skin and body care; I stick to whatever works. What's nice about being a member of Sample Room is that I get to experience the latest products without having to go out and hunt for them. ^_^ SO! Here they are!

Cetaphil Daylong sunscreens. I actually raved about this line of sun protection products and recommend it to practically everyone who asks. It's the best sunscreen brand IMHO, drugstore or otherwise. The products are super light, smells like nothing, and feels like nothing. The Liposomal Spray SPF 30 PA+++ is definitely something I would purchase when I run out. 

Dial Coconut Water Hydrating Wash. You guys, you should try this! At first I was like, "Dial? Why would I want to use a Dial body wash?" I would hate to smell like a dude + I find Dial washes drying. But not this one! It smells fantastic, like sweet coconuts, and leaves my skin feeling moisturized after rinsing. It's super good!

Hygienix Hand Care Anti-Bacterial Hand Sanitizer. This is something I always endeavor to have in my bag. Hygienix probably is the best-smelling alcohol sanitizer I've tried. The gel is nice to use when my hands are feeling dry, versus the liquid alcohol spray.

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Raisin. I love the one in Rhubarb, but Raisin is quite pretty too! It's an intense red that won't dry out your lips. Yes, Sample Room also has full-sized cosmetics every so often. ;)

Olay Aquaction moisturizers. This is actually the latest drop at Sample Room; it's still available if you wanna try it out. I've always been curious about Olay Aquaction because I LOVE gel moisturisers. It's perfect for use during the day when it's hotter and skin tends to get oilier.

I haven't used Aquaction yet since i just got it the other day, but swatches are super promising. The gel feels like a legit gel should - light, fluffy, without a greasy feel. I'll try it on the side of my face first to see if I break out. Crossing my fingers! I would love to try a cheap alternative to the rather pricey Clinique Moisture Surge, which is my HG moisturizer. The Olay ones are just P860 per jar!

Now, if you want to try out more Sample Room releases, do become a VIP Member. It's just P799 for 1,000 points that you can consume in two months. Here's the link if you're interested. FYI!
