I love summer vacation. Ah love it because there’s no stress and pressure from schoolworks.
We are going to the beach this Sunday and I have a problem. I’m still on the peeling process. It’s just a light peel on the face but I know I need to stay away from sun exposure. I also need to wear sunblock.
But sunblock is useless here even if it’s SPF 100. The temperature is so hot plus,the sun’s heat is too much.
I admit, Im not the outdoor type but I like seeing amazing places. I only go out at 8am and go out again at 4pm. Especially during summer vacations. )
I’m like “hey let’s go to the mall and watch movie and pigout” instead of travelling. Me and my close friend are the same, yes we’re boring. ) I think my body is weak because I always get dizzy when I go to hot places. I ruin the situation and my family ends up worrying about me instead.
Well I dont want to disappoint them so I’ll still go. I decided to do a chemical peel because I want to lighten dark spots. Too much sun exposure after a peel will lead to skin darkening.
I want to stay at the cabin more than the shore. But I dont want to be KJ. I’ll just put on sunblock and wear a hat.
Hi readers, I’m here again to review a Korean product. It’s a snail cream from Mizon.
I read some reviews about it and I found out that it gives a matte finish compared to Elisha Coy’s snail cream. I have oily skin so I thought this one would work well for me. I bought this for less than 1000 pesos including the shipping fee. It’s much affordable compared to other sellers.
The packaging looks like this. It’s in a glass jar.
Here are the description, instructions and ingredients:
Im using this for 3 months and as you can see in the pic below… I’m almost done with my first jar.
What I liked:
** I think this product has the highest snail secretion filtrate
** Does not contain any paraben
** Moisturizes my skin especially the dry areas
** A little amount goes a long way
** Makes my skin soft and plump
** Gives a matte finish
** Helped to heal my “unintentionally” popped pimples (yes, I dont pop them anymore)
** Did not make my skin more oilier BECAUSE I use enough cream only just to make my skin moisturized
What I dislike:
** Did not prevent breakouts and did not lighten my super duper dark spots. I can officially say now that my skin got used to snail secretion.
For those who have dry and wrinkly skin, this one’s perfect for you. I still think this works wonders for the skin although it didnt prevent my breakouts.
I took the pics above last week and right now Im finished with my first jar. I’m thinking of buying Emu Oil because it has antibacterial properties that might help to heal and prevent pimples.
Good evening readers! Im officially back to blogging. It’s difficult for me to post anything because Im just using a tab. I cant view WordPress on desktop and on my phone. It’s so difficult for me to upload pics. I hope you’ll understand.
Anyways, Im prepping up for a TCA Peel but Im still not yet ready for that. I hope I’ll have the courage to do it. I read a lot of tips regarding the peel and dermatologists recommend gentle cleansers.
So I bought Cetaphil’s famous gentle cleanser. It costs 319 pesos. It’s a bit expensive.
Here are the instructions and ingredients:
There are some things I like and dislike about this cleanser.
What I like:
It doesnt make my skin feel tight
Fragrance free which is good for those who are sensitive to strong scents/smell
Non comedogenic… it doesnt clog pores
Makes my skin retain its moisture
Can be bought at leading drugstores
After using it, my skin feels soft
What I dislike:
Contains lots of Paraben
The soap free thingy because it feels like my skin is still not clean after using this
I think this is too gentle for my super duper oily skin.
Got some pimples maybe because it doesnt remove all the dirt and I paired this with a gentle toner
Overall, this is a so so product. Im just sad because it’s too gentle for my skin. Hmmmmp. I think my skin got used to products with alcohol and other harsh chemicals.
What’s your favorite cleanser? Do you know other gentle cleansers, please share them below.
Hello readers! I’ve been inactive for almost three months. It’s because of our finals. Exams are over and it’s our summer vacation.
I’m gonna be active again, yaaaay!
Watch out for my upcoming reviews:

** Whitening Detox Clay Mask
** Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream
** Kojie San Kojic Acid Skin Lightening Soap
** Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser
