Picks of the Month

Finally I have something to share in my monthly favourites. Though it’s not massive ( because I’ve been MIA) it’s totally gratifying for me to share something that I love that is worth the buy and hoping that you’ll get to remember me if ever you pass by stores and sees them and know that it’s been Chubbychicsdiary approved!

Okay, let’s start with the new and I have three.

Bellic Peel and Glow Brightening Soap- I’l be honest guys. This soap and I didn’t get a good start. I put fault on me being drastic on my shifting to brands that I didn’t give justice to this but now I’m happy that I could finally give credit to where it is due. It helped me a lot in maintaining my skin (at least) pimple free. And what I loved most is that it gave my face that youthful glow. For further information about this product, see my review.

Ovale Tomato Mask

Tomato based skin care products have been proven and tested in giving my skin good results. In fact I always look for them whenever I’m on a skincare aisle. So when I saw this new brand from Ovale (and it’s Tomato!) I didn’t waste my chances. It really helped in giving my face that . What I love most about this product is that it’s super affordable. I could use one pack for a good seven times.

Ovale Whitening Facial Lotion (Aloe Vera)

You always get tempted to try a product specially if it’s new. Even if you don’t have any idea what will become after not minding how much you spent. Hey! It’s experience that counts anyway. How will you know if you wouldn’t try?

This is my mindset whenever I see something new along the cosmetic aisle or even in supermarkets for that matter. Well, good if I got to discover that is worth the buy. And this is my experience with Ovale Facial Lotion. I’m looking for a substitute because at that time my facial lotion is failing me.

I’ve been using Ovale for a month now and suprisingly it did the job. I specifically choose whitening stuff for my face because I easily get tan whenever I go out.

How about we shift to something famous?

Cosrx Centella Water Alcohol-free Toner

This is my first introduction to the famous CosRx specifically known for healing acne troubled skin. I have seen it for awhile but inhibits me to try price wise. I have incorporated this toner in my night skincare regime after applying my Ovale Facial Lotion. I used this mainly as a facial mists to lock in moisture and let it dry naturally. What I love about this is that it keeps my face moisturized and looking fresh.

CosRx Centella Blemish Cream

This is what I use after spritzing my face with the toner. It really does prevents my skin from having recurring acne and it dries up pimples easily. I also love that Centella has an anti-aging properties which is a must for me.

Etude House Zero Sebum

I actually got mine in trial packs as a freebie (the special thing on purchasing Korean beauty products ūüĎć) I use this as a primer or lately wear it alone. It helps keep the oil on my face at bay for the whole day.Trial size really helped in determining wether to buy or not also waste of product will be avoided. Definitely will buy a full size mow.

Gatsby Powdered Oil Control Clear Sheet

I having an oily-combination type of skin have a penchant on everything that is oil control. That is why this is my holy grail in combating oiliness. What I love about this oil control sheet is that it’s powdered, meaning to say no retouching of powder for those of you who are too lazy or no time for touchups. I also find it convinient that this sheet is a tad wider than the usual ones in the market ( which reminds me of Mary Kay’s)


Nestea Milk Tea (Hokaido and Wintermelon)

I know this isn’t beauty related but that won’t stop me from including this on my favourites list. I know most of you were tea lovers specifically the types of Serenitea and Gong Cha. This would definitely excite you. Very affordable at Php13.00, two packs is already equivalent to a large size of your favourite bubble tea ( unfortunately no pearls included) How about that? The Hokaido variant is ( for me) kinda similar to Serenitea whilst the Wintermelon is very much similar to Gong Cha. The only downside is that it’s only available ( not that I know of) in 7-11 branches which is always out of stock.

There you have it my August picks of the month. I know most of you (specially here in the Philippines) are excited because we’re hitting the ber months already. It seems like only yesterday that we’re bidding adieu to 2016. I guess I’ll be more attentive now on posting my blogs and so happy to be creating more. Till our next favourites guys!

Picks of the Month

It’s the time of the month again ladies that we share our same likes or favorites. The month of March is the birth month of my dear mother. It is also the month where my father got to meet our Creator. I believe these events will forever be engraved in my being but I never thought that another life changing one will add up to this. Well anyways it’s another story to be told. As I gather all the things I noticed that most included in this segment are somewhat became my comfort. Things that had given me consolation in this trying times.¬†
I’ll start with this scent that really uplifted my spirits everytime I use it. The name pretty much says it all. At the same time it’s smell is my prelude to summer.

Bath & Body Works White Citrus 

Though March would usually be ¬†hot and humid, we got to have the opposite. Since the global warming is pretty evident now almost for the whole month we experienced cold winds. And what a better time for this is to have coffee. I really am not an avid drinker but I’m keen on trying everything new that is out in the market. This two newly released got me hooked up.

Great Taste Double White which for me resembled Starbucks White Mocha and although this is not a coffee Coffeemate Salted Caramel has taken my ordinary coffee days to the next level. pixlr-2

Come latter week of the month that it became hotter than the previous, taking a shower seems to be my favorite pass time. Well figuratively, just because the heat is so much to bear that you’ll be thinking of taking a shower every now and then. And very timely that I got a new body shower to try out. After a few days, I’m officially loving it!

Dial Soothing Care pH Balanced Body Wash¬†with¬†Collagen¬†simply takes my breath away every time I take a bath. Contrary to the last¬†Dial Body Wash¬†that I had, the effect of this one is quite similar to¬†Healthy Moisture with Soy and Almond Milk¬†( also from Dial) It gives my skin that healthy glow and softness. Also I don’t bother applying lotion afterwards because it doesn’t dry up my skin. Surely the Collagen is working out here.2017-04-10-17-41-53

For almost half of the month that I haven’t had a good decent sleep. If this is the case, chances are breakouts will be popping out here and there. As predicted I actually had the cystic ones. I should really thank my brother for lending me his first aid solution to budding pimples.¬†Calayan Skin Calming Solution¬†has been my saving grace.¬†InstaBox_201741217207685

I’m still with my usual stuff in terms of makeup since I always lean on the light ones and weather changed finding it still appropriate.

The month of March has changed me emotionally. It gave me a sense of maturity in an aspect of acceptance and moving forward. These guys have been with me, lifting my senses. I believed even though these were just petty ones incredibly they made me survive. Lastly, though it may sound cliche¬†Blogging¬†has kept my sanity and I couldn’t thank you enough my virtual friends for being with me. Until our next¬†favorites.
