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 👍) 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)

add-ons

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!

My Bellic Peel and Glow Experience (a review)

I’ve been out of the blogging game for months now. There are few reasons behind the impromptu hiatus and one of this is my battle with hormonal acne. I considered myself one of those lucky teenagers who skipped the “acne period of growing up” Yes, I had smooth skin. I enjoyed it and really took my time taking good care of what I have. I do have skin care regimes suited for my skin and I didn’t abuse it. I sleep well, drank eight glasses of water religiously and ate healthy foods. In return I was given a healthy young looking skin as I grow old.

I’m in my forties now and enjoys the youthful compliments every now and then. But as I come closer then to the big 4-0, I noticed that cystic pimples were slowly emerging. First I woke up with one, then next week two until I realized that some part of my face have troubled acne. Not to mention that my pores are now larger and I even experienced a sudden change of skin type. From oily combo to dry skin. Being in that position now from my 40 years of existence, I lost confidence. I got paranoid. I can’t perpetuate the shame that I felt. I can’t even put up a good skin product review because there’s fear of not being credible with my current situation. So it’s all true, the feelings, the shame. What now? Believe me I have tried many products but I ended up not keeping anything for most doesn’t solve the problem. I’m scared even to put it in the hands of a derma for some personal reasons. Until I just let it be.

Looking back, one of the products that I have tried during that period is the Bellic Peel and Glow Brightening Soap. To be frank it was a love-hate relationship. We really didn’t go along well at first until I ended not using it. But you see I have this weird reactions to new products. I always don’t get the desired results at a first try well not that it’s not effective but maybe i have experienced drastic transition problems or results. So what I always do is give it a rest and then take another shot. Mostly on the second time around are a lot more in their proper place.

And this is now what happeneds to my Bellic soap experience.

Earlier this month that I decided to incorporate this in my new skin care routine after maybe six months. But before I proceed here is a scope of Bellic’s potent ingredients and claims.

Glycolic Acid – exfoliator, anti-aging, lightens skin discoloration, alpha hydroxy acid (aha)

Salicylic Acid – anti-acne, beta hydroxy acid (bha)

Daisy flower extract (Bellis perenis) antiseptic, great alternative for Hydroquinone and Kojic acid in treating hyperpigmentation, lightens skin.

Kojic Acid – known to limit melanin formation.

What to expect when/after using Bellic:

Skin tightening, micro peeling (thus the rough skin texture), lightening of blemishes, drying of pimples.

My Experience

I know for the second time around that I have given justice to this product and very thankful for doing so. What I would usually do is cut the soap in parts like this whole bar is divided into four.SONY DSC It’s priced at Php 66 which some might find a bit pricey in compared to its sister soap. (Yes they’re manufactured by Bevi, the one that broght us the famous Koji-san.) So cutting it in portions is economical since this suds up well. I leave it on my face for a few seconds (concentrating to the pimple infested area) and noticed a slight tingling sensation which is all good for me. ( my sign that it’s actually working) I love that it lathers so fast. A little caution though is that the bar soap dissolves easily. It has a tendency to melt in your soap dish so store it dry. I also noticed the tightening of my skin but not overly drying. Your skin will feel rough or like it’s peeling. This might be drying for those of you who have a dry skin type so it is advised to apply moisturizer after using to avoid irritation.

To wrap things up, Bellic is highly recommended for those of you who are looking for a soap that would help dry up pimples, lighten blemish spots and also with an anti-aging properties. I was truly pleased of what I see now and I could say that my confidence has gained back and kinda learn to accept aging. 👍

*Bellic Peel and Glow Brightening Soap is available in all leading supermarkets nationwide. ( just a reminder that it might be sold out in some leading drugstores) This is based on a personal experience and it’s not sponsored. What works for me might not be the same with you so highly precaution is advised.*

Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream Review

My first encounter with the brand Cathy Doll was during the hype of Thai beauty products here in the Philippines, long before the Korean fad started. It was then that thousands of beauty and skincare products from Thailand are floating on my Instagram feed. The testimonials are really very convincing seeing how Thai women has come about such lovely and flawless skin synonymous to that of a Korean. To think that they also belong to the tropics country of Asia. So when my brother got the chance to visit Thailand, I specifically asked him to buy me a Cathy Doll. In fact I also made a review on one of the products he handed me when he got home. Unfortunately my happiness was cut short when I finished one bottle after the other. You see, though they are abundant on online sites you can’t be so sure that they are legit. Just imagine my happiness when finally after a year Cathy Doll has decided to venture business in the Philippine shores. You won’t be having difficulty anymore of finding your favourite product because they are already available here. Actually I was pretty much overwhelmed when I saw one of their stall in Watson’s. I can’t figure out what to buy! Until I finally decided to have their AA Cream.

What is AA Cream by the way? 

I know you are all confused with the number of letter creams ( BB, CC, DD and ZZ ) coming out in the market nowadays. To what is their use? Benefits and the likes. 

I really wonder what’s AA to be exact.

Automatic Aura is what Cathy Doll’s AA stands for. Usually from the letter itself that you’ll find its use like BB for Blemish Balm or CC for Color Correction. 

This AA cream foundation provides incredibly lightweight texture like the air. This easy-to-blend formula automatically delivers an aura complexion all day long with the Auto Aura, Anti-Acne, and Anti-Aging effects. It provides perfect coverage and naturally smooth appearance to the skin. Moreover, it contains the properties of Tea Tree Oil that helps to control oil and reduces the occurrence of acne; Korean Herb Extract that helps to fade off dark spots caused by acne, while Titanium Dioxide brightens skin tone and protects skin from dullness with the 45x sunscreen protection benefit. This item is well-suited for every skin types including sensitive skin.”

 I suppose from the name Aura it’ll give you that instant glow. I purchased the trial pack only which costs me Php 54.00 at Watson’s. They only have two color variants which is Light Beige and Natural Beige. I chose the latter since it’s leaning closer to my skin color but not exactly.

Here are the following thoughts on my Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream SPF 45 PA+++ 

  • Has a strong tea tree scent upon application but fades eventually
  • Turns grayish on skin
  • Creamy and thick consistency makes it easy to blend
  • Feels lightweight on the skin though it’s a little bit tacky upon application
  • Medium coverage
  • Good oil control coverage
  • Tends to emphasize some dry parts of my face
  • Matte finish
  • Good spectrum coverage ideal for summer ( SPF 45 PA+++)
  • Has a tendency to cake when applied with brush or by using your fingers.

As you can see it has a very thick consistency that I resent applying it using my fingers on first use. 

I’m not sure if you noticed but it looked cakey on me. But surprisingly it held up to my face without the oilyness for 4 hours. Really not bad since the only oily place noticeable is around nose area. 

As oppose to this one wherein I used a beauty blender. I love that it adhere to my skin very well though you might notice that it emphasizes the dry parts in my face ( side of nose and side of  mouth ) The freshness it gives due to its matte finish is very ideal for everyday specially this summer since it already has SPF 45 PA+++ in it.

Though it was never a love at first use I learned to work it’s way out to be a suitable companion this summer. It really pays that you have to try everything possible before you ditch a product. The only downside is the grayish color it gives to your skin making it difficult to find match. And I do hope they would have at least four color variants for the in between. Other than this, everything is workable.

Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream SPF 45 PA+++ is from the AA Series. Other product included is the Cathy Doll AA Matte Powder Cushion Oil Control SPF 50 PA+++

The Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream SPF 45 PA+++ is available in tube and trial packs. Both are sold in all Watson’s and 7-11 branches nationwide. 

Cathy Doll is a Korean inspired brand made in Thailand.

Baking or Jamsu? Which works better

I stumbled upon Jamsu  which means submerging thru Facebook. The word originated in Korean and it’s their version I believe of Baking. Contrary to the latter, Koreans doesn’t dust off the excessive translucent or loose powder on their face but dunks it in a bowl of cold water. Intriguing isn’t it? Korean being the trendsetter in makeup trends, who wouldn’t give this a try?Since the arrival of baking up to the present day, I have been introduced to different ways of how this technique is done. Primarily it just started with the under eyes to prevent it from creasing and withstand the day without looking mummified. Until it goes on to the whole face, to set everything and make it lasts. I did try though but not religiously. Yes, it upholds to it’s promise and really for an oily combo skin like mine, there’s more that I need to bake.

Then after a year, Jamsu came up. I’m not really a professional in terms of makeup. I just rely on what I believe will look best on me. So when I saw and read how this new makeup technique came to be, I immediately thought of comparing it to know which one works best and share this experience to you. So far amongst Filipina vloggers, only a few have tried and reviewed this so it hasn’t really penetrated deep yet. I must say the finished product is really promising which I admit, what compelled me to try and feel it for myself. If this succeeds, well I’ll sing my bye bye’s now to oiliness.

Getting ready with the procedure, I used San San Matte Finish liquid foundation for my face and Pink Sugar Our lil Secret Concealer for my under eyes. My inspiration is to go all local with my makeup brands particularly on these two basic ones. 

And for my loose powder, this one has been with me for quite sometime now. Unfortunately the name of the brand is not imprinted in the label. It is of your preference what to use in this step, actually the first that I have in mind is to use Johnson’s Baby Powder. If you noticed I still used a matte finish for my foundation just for an optimum results of being an oily faced and applied it using a damp beauty blender. 

 And so I go on to the main event of this technique which is the submerging of that face into cold water. This should last for 30 seconds or merely counting thirty. You could go up every now and then if you think that you feel drowning. I was told that for oily 3o would suffice but for normal to dry, 20 will do. Prior to the dunking you shouldn’t forget to put a generous amount of loose powder to year face. The best image that I could think for this is kabuki

Yes, be as white as a kabuki. After the submersion, pat dry your face. Do not rub or it will take away that foundation. Wait for a few minutes to settle. Don’t fret if you’ll see some caking, I think it’s the initial reaction of the powder to the cold water. Eventually it’ll take form of what you expect it to be. Super matte finish.

My Thoughts

I noticed that there’s some caking under my eyes. I actually fret a little so my initial defense was dab it with the damp beauty blender. But it did came out well, and I really am true to my word saying this. The texture of the skin looks soft and kinda peachy. Though I must say that the color difference between my face and neck is really o-vi-ous! It’s just a teeny weeny problem. And since the powder who acts as a sealer really adds up to the color, it is suggested that you go one tone lower than you’re usual color of foundation. That is if the color change really overwhelmes you. For me it eventually sets to my skin color so I didn’t mind. Other than that, I’m impressed. The matte finish for me isn’t flat looking. And the application of blush is just perfect. At first I remind myself to not go overboard with my blush, you know not steady hands. Suprisingly I was able to control the amount that I want and it just glides on so smoothly. The idea of baking is to allow the heat of your face to set the base foundation and concealer wheareas in jamsu you let the cold set your base. Baking takes 10 minutes to take but jamsu with all the preparation of the cold water and stuff, will take you to 20-30.The entirety of the technique will give you a whole day of smudge proof, fresh looking face. I swear! I didn’t get this on baking for I usually end all oiled up in the afternoon. But jamsu is very forgiving on just making my face a little dewy at the end of the day. I just noticed that the first to oil up is my nose but what really gave me the infinite go is my laugh lines. The foundation that I used, in any brand always settles on this area. But Jamsu washed those fears away. 

For Filipinas on the go, this isn’t really commendable. I must say that if you really, really would like to incorporate this on your makeup routine before going to work, spare some time ahead. You may come in your office with a bang but still, late. So just stick to baking instead. But if you will to attend a function, gathering or event that needs a superlative beauty to lasts, I highly recommend this.

Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint Review

Hello Ladies! 💋

I believe I owe you a very warm greetings since there are so many occasions that’s been missed and Oh! how I miss our interactions. How long has it been? Very!..

I’ve been contemplating a lot what to put up first. Will it be the empties, favorites or simply do an intro for the new year? Say I chose what I feel the most comfortable on doing which is this lip tint review. So here we are.

It’s actually lip tints that I’m addicted to. Or is it? *smiles* I find myself always wanting what’s new where in fact there are still of the same hue. Rhyming! I know we all makeup lovers do. Anyways, going to with my “what’s new”, you might be wondering why would someone hoard on liptints. I mean you could perfectly understand why we would love to own a lipstick eventhough mostly are of the same color BUT there’s a variety right? Texture, formula, finish and price. With liptints, aside from the color variation, is there any thing that you could think of? ( comment down below 👍😁)

Longevity I believe is the sole category for any liptint hunting. Hmmm.. I guess any liptints would. But just imagine when a brand gives you this promise? Of course who won’t give in.  So when I finished watching Tina Yong review on Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tints, I told myself “where on earth will I find these?!” 

Chateau Labiotte although sounding French is actually a Korean brand. Very fascinating though that they also have their skincare line. I believe it’s a good move for this makeup company to be noticed in Westen countries in putting up a name that is very French. I even got caught with the marketing strategy thinking this must be worth something. Actually the brand name is simply Labiotte and from my understanding, this company mainly focuses on botanical infused products. And you should check out their skincare line, so promising indeed.
As I said that this liptint must have worth something.. sure is. The fact that it’s Korean brand and new in the Philippine online market must have cost me so much. I found that this is available in full and trial size (7g and 3g respectively).

And because a full size costs around Php 600-700, the wise girl will opt for the trial size. There are 6 color variants ( 3 reds, ranging from light to darkest. 1 orange, 1 coral and 1 pink) I was lucky to have found a trusted seller online thru lipsticklover (also a personal friend) that I was able to snag a deal of 3 for the price of Php 500.

photo from Beauty Box Korea

I was actually in die need of the RD01. What I got were 3 mini sized cute little wine bottles with colors RD01, OR01 and CR01.

Thoughts on the liptint

The first one that I got to try was the OR01. Im not sure if you noticed but Koreans do love their orange don’t they? Always present in every lipstick brands. Anyways, as I told, longevity is what got me. The promise is that it could stand for a whole ( even the following day??! Really??) day without touch up. That’s my kind of liptint there! Going back, orange for the brave so I was surprised though I wasn’t thinking that I could pull it off but their orange is applaudingly a good color match for my Filipina skin-tone.

RD01 is very bold red but not intimidating, build it up and it could pass for a bare-face-red-lips kind of makeup.

CR01 if you noticed is very subtle in color. If you aren’t for a heavy colored tints, this number will happily suit your lips.

These lip tints has a faint wine scent in it accompanied with a tad bitter taste which is very tolerable. The qualities of a wine was really embodied in this product that also adds up to its character. The only difference is this won’t make you tipsy. Texture is creamy actually as opposed to the usual liquidy lip tints in the market. I must say that if you will wear it full not the gradient type of application, it would definitely lasts you a whole day. I find that I could still see a faint color stain the day after. The best part for me is that it didn’t dry my lips.

Recommendations

If you are a liptint fanatic like me but still in doubt whether to purchase the full size, I suggest that you look for an available trial size first. This would really cost you less. Aside from the availability problem, color variant is just so-so for me. I couldn’t expect more for a Korean makeup line with their color preference though but fortunately their orange is a thumbs up. Although it costs a bit high from other leading liptints but if you love this, it’s more convenient to buy the full size because indeed it will last you a lifetime considering the longevity matter per se. Packaging, I really have to give a hands down to the creative minds behind this. I appreciate it much to have a neat wine-sampler-looking-liptint inside my makeup bag. So adorable! Ending my review I would give this a 8/10 only because of the color variants.

I enjoyed it very much whenever I get to review and share my thoughts with you bearing in mind that like me, women out there would like to know a non-bias opinion first before diving in. Let’s all get our money’s worth.

Until next time lovelies!

The Battle of the Best ( Pond’s vs Olay)

This post was originally inspired by my monthly favorites which I kind of skipped ( only for this month) due to a few product consumption. Anyways, these brands were supposed to be included on that post until I thought of documenting my comparison. I know Filipinas would definitely agree with me that at one point in their life they had used these or maybe still until now. I know how much we are such penchants for anything that whitens. So let’s get started on choosing between Pond’s White Beauty Non Oily Day Cream and Olay Natural White All In One Fairness Day Cream.

The first thing that we’ll do whenever we see something new that we would like to try is to read or search about it’s claims. Could it answer our concerns if we have one. So for the obvious we all know our main reason. There are a lot of choices actually in the market but these two are the tried and tested. 

Starting off with Olay. It’s claims were the following.

  • Lightens skin tone
  • *Reduce appearance of dark spots,
  • Evens skin tone
  • Hydrate and 
  • Protect skin from harmful UV rays to give you a fairness that glows.

I’m just not sure of the asterisk for the ..reduce dark spot. If it’s to highlight that specific claim? Olay is what you call an all-in-one product that includes a Moisturizer, Fairness Cream and Dark Spot Remover in one. Not to mention the UV protection. So if you happend to look for these qualities on a Day Cream, this is a check.

Next would be Pond’s which is available in the market in three variants. Since mine is susceptible to breakouts so I opted for the Korean Ginseng + Saffron which is for Acne-Prone Skin. Written on the label are the following claims.

  • Translucent Pinkish White Glow
  • Fade Pimple Marks
  • Spot-less* ( in bold text)
  • Non Oily Day Cream
  • Detox (also in bold text)
  • With Korean Ginseng+ Saffron+ Spot-less Complex

The list is really overwhelming I should say. Not only that, written on the back are as follows.

  • Best fairness in just 7 days**!
  • Clinically proven results on Asian skin
  • Purify skin layer by layer
  • Lighten dark spots
  • Helps prevent future breakouts
  • Unique light moisturizing cream with a powder finish for a translucent rosy white glow

Don’t ask me why this product got me. I mean who wouldn’t. If you promise me a Korean skin. Push! 

An advisory also is included stating not to stay long in the sun  and stay away from direct sunlight which for me is very helpful. I guess whenever or if ever we’ll have such results such as mentioned above, a little pat of reminder from time to time is needed. People tend to get overwhelmed sometimes. 

Although Pond’s has the pinkish glow claim, it was Olay who has a pinkish tint in it’s formulation

I’ve started using Pond’s actually because efficiently wise, it’s true when they said results will be achieved in just 7 days. Take note of that if you want a faster progression girls. I would also want to emphasize that I have oily skin. I have used it for three weeks, enough I believe for me to notice of the results. 

Having oily skin, I very much chose matte finishes due to the uncontrollable oil buildup it might later cause. In this case although matte it is, I’m not sold to the formulation. It’s easy to blend but I find a little tugging after awhile. I feel that on some areas of my skin dryness and a little flaking is emphasized. Some wee lines around the mouth area is also evident. I have a some Pimple marks on the left side of my cheek and I don’t see any changes in the color. After two weeks I stopped for a week, I noticed some breakouts which really happens whenever I discontinue using Pond’s products. Also just so you know, I used Pond’s Acne Control facial wash with this. 

Formulation

Going on with my Olay experience. For starters, though the formulation is non-greasy it’s not matte. So better be warned. But to be honest I find myself more comfortable using this because I love the dewy effect it gives. My skin looks more radiant on top of being fair which I most prefer. I’m still on my second week but aside from the radiance, my face is already fair enough with all due credit to Pond’s. I’m still nursing the pimples left behind but most are now on it’s healing stage.

Matte ( Pond’s) vs Dewy (Olay) Finish

If I were to chose between the two I’ll chose Olay. I’m more on a healthy glow which Pond’s failed to give. But fairness wise, I praise Pond’s for giving the fastest whitening results. Price wise Olay is available at 7.5g for only Php 18. While Pond’s has 3 sizes which is more convenient. Their 6g costs Php 10.

As the saying goes to each is own. Go for what will suit your needs/concern best. Ending my comparison here, I hoped that you were able to take some notes on choosing your brand and that always remember not to go with the fad. Know your skin concern first and if it was properly addressed with the brand you chose. Don’t go with the fad. What works for them might not work for you.

Monthly Favorites

I wasn’t able to update my favorites of last month so this will be a merge of two to keep in track. But don’t worry, it’s not a hefty list.😁 Some old and there’s a lot new so let’s get started.

Maybelline Touch of Spice

I’ve been wanting to own this since of last year but due to the limited stocks and high demand that I failed to grab one. Until they included this color in their creamy mattes brown edition.  I find it also very timely because it’s high time of nudes and browns and this is specifically what my heart beats for. Indeed I was right. Though matte it’s creamy formulation makes this moisturizing and easy to wear. The color is not intimidating, a brown that you can call MLBB.

Colourette Uno Lipstick Primer

The problem when you own a lot (lipsticks/lip product) you tend to forget the best ones. This applies true to this as it happens to sit in my stash for so long until I decided to declutter. I specifically pair this with my mattes that are very drying and other lipsticks that fades easily. I didn’t know that I own a life saver.

KJM Tinted Lip Balm in Pandora

 Though we don’t have Autumn here, we Filipinas are not shy to follow it’s color trend specifically with makeups. This one here is my version of Autumn feels for my lips. For a lip balm, the pigmentation is truly amazing. I love the very relaxing minty smell and the big plus which it’s all natural.

MUZ Aqua Cool Gel

Applying Moisturizer is now easy peasy for me with this on hand. Don’t you just hate the greasy after feel a typical Moisturizer gives? Well, not on this one, it’s a gel type that keeps your face fresh and moisturized. For a humid hot weather that we have, I opt to use this.

Avénine White Extra Rich Collagen

I never knew that I could find an affordable Collagen lotion that suits my needs. I thank Watson’s for having a wide array of products for answering my call. I use this before bedtime for our skin regenerates during sleep and this is a good partner. Waking up to a healthy looking skin can never be this good.

Hortaleza Professional Black Pelan Hot Oil

 If you are too busy to book for a salon service but you need to revive those mane asap,  I highly recommend this. For Php 15, a smooth, shiny hair is at your fingertips within the comfort of your home.Definitely a quarter of a price against any serums or hair treatments available in the market. 

Essensa Body Contouring Soap

For the past months, I vowed to strictly follow my exercise routine for a flat stomach together with less meat/carbs diet. To adhere on this is by using this soap which I believe has given me good results.

Makeup Plus Application

I have been using this long before the famous vloggers promoted it. The precision of the makeup application can mistakenly look original. I love the wide selection of lipstick colors that are all in trend. No need to apply makeup if you need a picture on the go. 

The Royals Series

My spare time is mostly spent watching TV series and this is my latest addiction. Anyone rooting for Elena-Jasper?

I warned you, not hefty but indeed exciting. Any of these familiar to you? In any case you happend to stumble upon these remember they are my favorites and it may also do wonders for you. Till next. 💋
