Review: Belo AcnePro Gel Face Wash & Treatment Toner

Hello readers! This is a quick review. I’ll be straight to the point because I don’t want to talk too much and give you information overload. Hehe. :) After using these items for almost a month, I can finally share with you my thoughts.

Belo AcnePro Gel Face Wash

Pros:
-Affordable (PHP 99.75)
-No parabens
-Non comedogenic & oil free
-Lathers up quickly
-Little goes a long way

Cons:
-not sure if it was one of the reasons for my recent breakout
-Leaves a thin film for me which was kinda slimy/sticky even if I rinsed twice
-Size is too small if used daily

 

Belo AcnePro Treatment Toner

I’ve used up all the toner already because it’s just in a small bottle

Pros:
-Affordable (PHP 79.95)
-No parabens
-Non-comedogenic & oil free
-Fragrance-free

Cons:
-Caused my recent breakout. This was the only new product in my skincare routine since I stopped using the gel wash. But I still kept on having breakouts. I’m sure this was the reason
-Stripped natural moisture & oil. It was drying for me.
-Size is too small if used daily

A lot of people raved about these products. I have to try anything that’s for acne prone skin. They said it’s effective but not for me. I didn’t put Bee Venom as a pro since it’s not new to me. If you’re updated with Korean skincare, you’ll know what I mean.

Verdict: these are “okay” products. It’s just that my skin is extra sensitive that’s why my skin reacted differently. I checked the ingredients and Bee Venom is the only one that’s new to my skin. Now I know that my skin doesn’t like it because I kept on having breakouts. Sad.

Remember: What didn’t work for my skin, might work well for your skin or… not because we have different skin type.

Review: VMV Hypoallergenics Red Better Spot Corrector

Im back again with another skincare review. Sorry I was busy with school works. This product was included in my wish list.

Im having breakouts because of health reasons. I need a quick solution to it so I bought this. :)

What is it?
“A uniquely non-drying acne balm made specifically for rosacea-related acne papules and pustules.”

image

Size: 8ml

Packaging: it’s in a plastic tube and comes with a glue-free box. Environment friendly, huh? :)

Price: I bought it for PHP 460. It’s a bit expensive for students like me.

Texture: cream type and sometimes runny when just got out of the tube.

Experience: dries pimple for about 2 to 3 days for small ones. 3 to 5 days for cystic ones. It can sting but I love the feeling! Hehe. My skin is extra sensitive and I easily get dark spots not matter what I do. Continue reading

July 2014 Mini Haul

Im back! Im gonna post my reviews about these products after using them for 2 to 4 weeks.

Unfortunately, LUSH Fresh Farmacy doesnt really work on my skin anymore unlike before. I need to find something that has a great effect like what Fresh Farmacy did before. I also need a good toner for acne prone skin because this semester is stressful. I only use Celeteque Hydration Toner during vacations since I use little to no makeup at all.

I repurchased Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Foundation and Purederm Makeup Cleansing Tissues. I feel uncomfortable when I do not double cleanse (makeup remover then facial wash)

image

1. VMV Hypoallergenics Red Better Spot Corrector – PHP 450 approx $10
2. Purederm Makeup Cleansing Tissues (30 sheets each) – PHP 119 for 2 packs approx $2.76
3. Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Foundation – PHP 99.75 approx $2.30
4. Belo AcnePro Gel Face Wash – PHP 99.75 approx $2.31
5. Belo AcnePro Treatment Toner – PHP 79.00 approx $1.83

Review: OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum

Hello sissies & gents. Im back with another skin care review. Please make sure to read everything because I also included some tips.

I can finally review this after using for 2 weeks. I think that’s long enough to see the effects. This is one of Wishtrend‘s bestsellers. It received a lot of positive feedbacks. I already have high expectations for this serum even before ordering one for myself.

image

It comes with a dropper. You just need to replace the cap with this one. Here’s a tip. If you’re going to buy, make sure to choose the one with the latest manufacturing date. This is very concentrated. You need the freshest one to maximize the effects on the skin.

image

The serum is a bit yellowish. It means it’s still fresh. It’s much better to get this kind of shade instead of yellow, orange or brown. The lighter the serum, the fresher the product.

image

Packaging: It’s a glass bottle and I think it’s classy. It should be kept in the refrigerator even if it’s unopened yet. The bottle effectively maintains the cold temperature.

Texture: It’s a bit sticky. For better absorption, I dab this after I spread it all over my face. It takes more minutes to be absorbed unlike other serums. Take note of this if you are going to put makeup after. It stained my pillowcase. Maybe I applied a lot on my face that’s why it happened.

Effect: I noticed that my skin is brighter after 5 days of using it. My skin looks Continue reading

Review: MC Skin Care Citrus Whitening Body Scrub

Hello ladies… And gents. Im back for another review. :)

Body scrub at spas are usually expensive. Now we can exfoliate our body without spending a lot of money. This is a product from MC All Natural Skin Care. ;)

image

 

It comes with a wooden spoon which is hygienic. You don’t have to dip your fingers in the bottle anymore. Here’s the packaging. There are only few ingredients as you can see.

The main product. ^___^

image

Packaging: It comes in a bottle. The expiration date is also included at the bottom.
Stickiness: Not that sticky. It’s easy to rinse. I did not expect that. :D
Whitening: My skin looks bright after use. Exfoliating brightens our skin.
Moisturizing: My skin felt naturally soft and it’s Continue reading

Review + Swatches: Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies

Hello ladies, it’s me again! :)
I actually scheduled to post this months ago but I was busy.

Here we go. My sis bought these cuties for me. Btw, I forgot to include in the pics but they have caps/lids. :)

Happy Skin Lippies

 Description from their website:

Whether torrid or tame, your lips will say it all! This Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie is sure to help you make that smackin’ statement. This lip-loving moisture stick is loaded with Shea Butter and Collagen to get fans to line up for a taste of those supple, hydrated, and ultra-kissable lips. High-pigmented, and moisture-packed, this lippie glides on irresistibly smooth (without the stickiness!) and leaves behind a rich, creamy pout that’s way tempting to kiss.

The colors are very pigmented especially the First Kiss. They also have a hint of shimmer. It’s like Continue reading

Review: Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream

Im back for another quick review. It’s a drugstore product so anyone could purchase it easily. :)

today Im going to review another whitening cream. I haven’t used whitening creams for almost a year, I think. Im afraid to use one again because it might break me out. But I still did, since Garnier claims to have natural ingredients. There’s just a little chance that my skin would react differently. :)

I bought sachets only because I just wanted to try it. Here’s the packaging:

Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream

The ingredients:
Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream 2

My thoughts on its benefits:

1. Oil Control: This has good oil control. It must be the powder-like finish. But for me, it’s less than 8 hours, maybe 1 to 2 hours. I usually start getting oily 15 to 30 minutes after I finish my skincAre routine.

2. Visible fairness: I didnt see any improvements on Continue reading

Nivea White Repair Pore Minimiser Foam review

Hi girls. It’s almost two months since I posted my latest haul. Since most of my haul are skin care, they need time to see the results. Unlike makeup, which can be reviewed within a day of usage. Sorry if you waited for so long.

So let’s start. Here’s the packaging:

IMG_2326

 

I bought this at a supermarket. I wanted to buy the other variant which was meant for those who use makeup daily. Unfortunately, the biggest size was the only available for that. I could only afford the small one so I got this instead of my preferred variant. *student problems lol*
