My Top 5 Spot Treatment Products For Acne

image
Hello readers! This is my first time to do a Top 5 post. I’ve tried a lot of spot treatments for acne. I guess I can now sort them out and list the products that works best on my skin. These products can eliminate acne within a week based on my experience. Well of course the cystic ones would take longer since they are under the skin. I’ve included the prices so you can select which one fits your budget.

What is it:
Coal Face is ideal for those of you who loving washing your faces with a good, old-fashioned bar of soap. Except, there’s nothing antiquated about this preservative-free facial cleanser. Inspired by the complexion bar in ‘Annie Hall’, we created Coal Face for combination to oily faces. Powdered charcoal absorbs excess sebum and acts as a mild exfoliator, while rosewood and sandalwood oils reduce redness and clear up blemishes. Use Coal Face daily for clear, balanced skin.

Review: Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Do-It-All Powder in 03 Natural

Happy Sunday readers! Tonight’s review is about my current powder foundation. I’ve used the old version of this for more than 3 years. I’m pretty sure they just changed the name but the formula and finish are still the same. Let’s find out.

One thing that I immediately noticed was the embedded logo. It’s much better. The printed logo before fades and it annoyed me. I dont know why. I never bought the original one with the mirror. I have a separate mirror and I like to keep things small in my makeup bag. Refills are fine with me because they are more affordable.

“The Blogger Interview” tag

image

Hello readers and bloggers! I’ve been tagged again and I’d like to thank Denise for this. Visit and show some love on her blog. She has awesome posts! :)

How did you get into blogging?
My blog was originally dedicated for KPOP news until I got tired of copy pasting news from other websites. I wanted an original content. My skin started to get breakouts when I was 16. My love for kpop influenced me to take care of my skin. Not because I wanted to get really flawless skin but to improve my skin’s condition. And this blog became active again.

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?
My advice, write about what you love and what you’re interested in. Write whenever you feel like doing it. Never force yourself to publish contents that you don’t like. You dont have to post everyday unless you want to and if you’re motivated.

How has your blog changed since you started writing it?
It changed a lot. My reviews are more detailed and realistic. I’m meeting new people around the world. We do not talk a lot but it’s fun that we all share the same interests. I’ve collaborated with companies and local online sellers. I even had repeat collaborations. I was invited to a blogger event this summer unfortunately I had chickenpox that time. ✌🏻️ Last but not least, more people are appreciating my posts. I’ve learned a lot from their tips too. It’s a give and take thing actually. :)

My LUSH Cosmetics Wish List

I was browsing Lush’s website for a few days so I went to their store last tuesday. I thought I should make a wish list for this brand. I hope you’ll enjoy this and comment your opinion especially those who have already tried these goodies. :)

1. Cosmetic Warrior
It has lots of anti acne ingredients and no irritants. My mission when I went to their store was to buy this mask. Unfortunately Lush in our country doesnt have a lab/factory to make their fresh masks. 💔 I ended up buying my first love, Fresh Farmacy. It makes me a little sad that I live here. Now I want to work abroad. 😂 UK, EU, US, Canada, Japan, Singapore and Korea carry this mask. I’ll probably ask my aunt & brother to get this for me when they return from KR, SG & Japan this year and next year. It doesnt have any preservatives so it expires quickly. Aunt and bro, please buy this on the day before your flight to make sure it’s fresh. 😭✌🏻️

2. Mask of Magnaminty
They recommended this to me instead. I heard lots of positive feedbacks on this one too. I’m not familiar with its ingredients. I’ll get the 120-gram tub first to test if it will irritate my skin.

3. Eau Roma Water
I know there are lots of rose water toners out there. But this one from lush has few ingredients. I used to think toners are just for removing excess dirt. And later found out toners also prep the skin for moisture. Can be used as toner or mist.

4. Herbalism
Welp, this is one of the few cleansers in the market with few ingredients. It’s specifically for oily and blemish prone skin. It doesnt dry out the skin according to reviewers. That’s a plus for me because my cleansers are usually drying.

5. Tea Tree Water
This product focuses on tea tree. It can also be used as a toner or mist through out the day. It’s really affordable too. What’s holding me back in buying this is its greasy feel according to some reviewers. I have to take a look on its sample bottle when I return to their store and see if it’s really greasy.

There you have it. What’s on your wishlist? Share them below. :)

I’ve mentioned that I ended up buying Fresh Farmacy which is my first love. I already reviewed it few years ago. I think that was in 2011. I’ll do an updated review on it soon! ;)

Review: Victoria’s Secret Makeup Remover Wipes

Hello readers! Im sorry I’ve been inactive for a week. But Im back now with another review. I got this during our Subic trip. I didnt know there were a lot of branded stuff in Subic. It’s a place for vacation and shopping at the same time. 👯

I was searching on VS’ website and found out this is the old design. I got this on sale, from $9 to $2. Yes, the store’s prices are in USD but they convert everything in peso. I’ve used it while we were on vacation and observed if it will break me out.

Let’s start with the product description:
Refresh your look in seconds. Quilted wipes whisk away makeup and gently cleanses skin in one easy sweep.
