Review : Mabelline Clear Smooth Aqua Gel Foundation

I had this for awhile now and really like using it so I thought, why not make a write-up about it. For a small bottle at Php349, it's not that cheap to buy without knowing if it'll suit your skin specially if its sensitive.

Product Says :
1) Water-based formula gives skin a light and fresh sensation.
2) Controls shine for an all day perfect and healthy-looking complexion.
3) Evens out skin tone and covers imperfections.
5) Feels soothing and cares for your skin with chamomile, aloe and Vitamin E.
6) 100% Oil Free.
7) Dermatologist tested.
8) Allergy tested.
9) Fragrance free.
10) Hypoallergenic.
11) Won't clog pores.

Tutorial : Multicolor Necklace

I saw this necklace on Instagram a few days back (click here). It's really simple but I think it'll be good for everyday outfits. When I check the website,, it cost £13 or roughly Php800 plus shipping. It may be worth its cost since its made of sterling silver and combination of precious gems but I just won't spend that much on a fashion jewelry so I decided to make my own.

Review : Beauty Credit’s Night Water Pack with Relaxing Herb Tea

I bought this  for Php390 from Beauty Credit at SBMA. For those who doesn't know, Beauty Credit is a Korean cosmetics and skincare brand. Their stores is not as cute as Etude House but the products are just as great. The prices are also more affordable compared to Etude House and Skin Food. Anyway, I was looking for a daily sheet mask but they don't have any so the lady suggested me have this. I was hesitant at first because I cannot read the back label since it was all in Hangeul. I can't even find the expiration date. I guess this is  the only thing that I don't like about most Korean and Japanese products.

Product says :

The Night Water Pack with Relaxing Herb Tea calms and relaxes you to sleep with aromatherapy properties, while it soothes and regenerates your skin throughout the night. It contains extracts of lavender, rosemary, sage, willow, herb and artemisia, exquisite herbs often used in essential oils that give you the calming, scented ambiance of a luxurious spa. It also helps to open clogged pores, neutralizes bacteria and reduce discomforts of inflamed, sensitive or acne skin.

Nail Swatch : Bobbie Nail Polish in Lush

This is my very first nail polish from this brand. My mom said this is also a good quality polish just like Caronia so I tried one. I was looking for an emerald color to join this season's fad and this is the closest I can find. I really like the fact that it compliments my skin tone without looking so green. Actually, it made my skin look fairer.

Review : Royal Jelly Essence Mask

I got this from Beauty Credit a few months back as a free gift but I kindda forgot about it. I was looking for the Somang or Beauty Credit mark at the back label but I didn't find any so I suppose they're just distributing it for MJCare. That explains the English translation because most Somang and Beauty Credit products doesn't have translation. I checked out their website ( and surprisingly, it's on their best products list.

Product Says :
     -Power relaxation skin with moisturizing treatment for professional spa results at home.
     -Make your skin elastic, moistened, clear and relax. For all skin types and 4 seasons.

My Product Experience :

Upon opening the package, you can see the liquid goodness squeezing out. The thick cotton mask is well soaked but there's still enough liquid for neck and elbows left in the package. As I expected, it is relaxing and it smells nice like tea with honey. Of course, my skin turned sticky twenty minutes later but almost dry like it's all been absorbed by my skin.

The sheet mask fits me nicely apart from the eyes, nose and mouth area which is typical.

I was kindda surprise that it was almost the size of an A4 magazine, though. It makes me think if my face is really that big.

The next morning, my skin feel soft, smooth, tight and really moist clearly the same as what it says  in the package. My skin looked less tired, too. I'm not sure about the four seasons but I think this is good during the cold days if you want to keep your skin moisturize.

Will I buy it again? :
Definitely. This lives up to what it claims. At least that part that I can read.

Review : Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Very Cherry

Red lips is a classic. It will instantly brighten up your bare face and look effortlessly gorgeous just like the Burberry runway models for Spring/Summer 2013 show.

I went to SM Department store and saw this five color range of red lipstick from Maybelline. I tested the color and decided to get it on #635 or Very Cherry because it compliments my skin tone well.

Of course, I had to try it as soon as I could so I wore it to the office the next day and it was really noticeable. My office mates complimented me and told me I should wear it more often. Probably because I always pick something nude or pink or anything subtle so it was kindda new for everyone.

Back from POC!!!

Hello everyone, I know I missed posting on a Sunday so here I am writing an apology post to explain why I was gone .

I was in the hospital for five days since February 6 because of the tumor operation. I'm finally discharged but still not home yet. I'm currently staying with some relatives in Manila so blogging time is really limited.

I had my operation at Philippine Orthopedic Center. My phone is broken so I wasn't able to take much pictures. I also have to stay at the ward's hallway because it was already full when I came. Actually, I stayed at the hallway the whole time I was there. It wasn't really that bad. I actually think it's much better than staying inside a crowded space because the air flows freely at the hallway.

Review : Strip it! Sugar Waxing

I got this on my November Salad Box and the package also includes a stick applicator, a strip of waxing cloth that you can divide into six pieces and instructions. I have tried a homemade sugar wax before but I wasn't that satisfied. Plus, there's a lot of cleaning to do. Homemade sugar wax can also be too sticky/watery and it solidifies.

Base on the card included on my box, 100g cost about Php130. I haven't really bought one so I'm not sure if it includes everything I got from my Salad Box. When I was reading the instructions, I thought it was gonna be easy. Just clean, apply and then strip it off to the opposite direction of your hair growth. When I was doing it, I think it took me more than three times before getting the hang of it. It can also be tiring to wax your armpits while sitting so better do it while laying down. Consistency is good. It's not too thick nor too thin so it's easy to spread on.
