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)

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.

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.

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. ^___^

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*

Updated: March 2014 Mini Haul

Hello ladies! It’s summer vacation so I can really observe closely if a product is effect or not. :)

I’ve been looking for something that I could try, online and in-store.  And here are the products that made me curious. :)

Image From left to right: Professional Skincare Formula 20% TCA Peel, Nivea Pore Minimiser Foam and Garnier Light Completle Multi-Action Cream

PSCF TCA Peel
I’ve been looking for a 20% TCA peel. Luckily, I bought one online. I had one session of 20% TCA Peel on the face before and I liked it. Before applying this on the whole face, I did a patch test first. So far so good. I didnt see any bad reactions.

Nivea Pore Minimiser Foam
I bought this at the supermarket. I needed to have a substitute for my soap.

Garnier Light Complete Cream
I bought this at the supermarket too. I’ve tried the old one before. It was called Dark Spot Corrector Cream. I wanted to buy that one but I couldn’t find any.

image From left to right: Cleene Cotton Rounds/Pads, Celeteque Hydration Alcohol-Free Toner and Nature Republic Aloe Soothing Gel

Cleene Cotton Rounds/Pads
I used this to apply the 20% TCA Peel on my face. :)

Celeteque Hydration Alcohol-Free Toner
I didn’t like it at first, but now my skin got used to it. It gives moisture to my skin after cleansing my face. I reviewed this already. If you want to see it, please click here. :)

Nature Republic Aloe Soothing Gel
I bought this as my post-peel moisturizer. It has soothing properties, perfect after a peel! Expect that this will be one of my earliest reviews since this doesn’t have any whitening ingredients. I’ll post it soon! :)

I’ll post the reviews soon. Since I’m using the foam and cream for about two weeks now. :)

Btw, if you haven’t seen my latest reviews please click here :)

Corderm Products review

Good evening! This is going to be a 4 in 1 post. I’m going to review four products tonight. I’ve posted about my December 2013 mini haul. I think trying out for almost four months is okay to say if a skincare product worked or not. Let’s start. :)

CorDerm Clinda + Azelaic Toner

Pros:

  • It did not sting
  • Did not irritate my skin
  • Cleansed my skin really well at night
  • A little goes a long way because my dermatologist instructed me to use it once a day
  • Affordable

Cons

  • Did not control the oiliness of my skin

      Overall, it’s still a good toner. My skin is really sensitive so it’s nice that it didn’t sting unlike other toners. I did not expect big improvements on my skin since this is just a toner. The only problem is it didn’t help to control the oiliness of my skin which is what I’m looking for in a product.
