Review: Rucy’s Vanity Acacia Whitening Body Lotion

Im back!!! Continuing with our theme this week, body care… Today’s review is from a Korean brand. Rucy’s Vanity is known for their affordable products… Mostly below 200 pesos ($4). Ranging from skin care, body care, makeup and fragrances.❤️

I’ve been eyeing on this brand for a long time now. Im grateful to receive some products to try out. The first thing I’ve tried is this lotion. Let’s proceed. :)


Makes your skin whiten, soft and elastic. Protect your skin from free radicals, contaminations and irritations. Contains extracts of aloe vera, portulaca, moraceae, centella and green tea to calm and soothe skin.


– Available locally, online & in supermarkets
– Very affordable, Php 120 for 100ml
– Subtle fruity & flower-y scent
– Packed with Niacinamide, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Vitamin E; extracts from grape seed, macadamia, peach, aloe & licorice
– Moisturizes skin even if you’re using small amount
– Sinks in the skin
– Doesnt feel sticky/oily

-Has parabens

I couldn’t tell for the whitening part but overall, Im liking this product mostly because of the relaxing scent. Flowery & fruity scents are my favorite!❤️ It does its job quickly probably because of essential oils, shea butter & aloe. I have really dry hands and this gives life back to them. I think this is also nice as a gift considering it’s only 120 pesos. Little goes a long way so it’s really worth it.✨

Before and After
imageLook at that healthy glowing skin! It did not feel greasy. I hope the camera gave it justice.😊 Please dont mind my oldie hand.😅

My skin is sensitive and this did not cause irritations. I’m very sweaty too. That’s the reason why I dont use lotions during day time. Im glad this one met my expectations. I road tested this, literally. I applied this and went out to observe while I was commuting. It was not sticky nor oily at all. It sinks in the skin and gives complete moisture while feeling light. My skin is still hydrated even if it’s washed off after taking a bath. If you want instant glowing skin, this is for you. It’s also nice on the shoulders, chest and legs while wearing sleeveless top or dress. It’s like a highlighter but for your body.✨ Overall, I’m impressed and my sensitive skin approves this lotion. 😊

Foods/Drinks That Cause & Reduce My Breakouts


This is the continuation of my skincare routine. Everything listed in this post works best for me and all based on my experience. Im not saying that this will work for everyone. Some people are okay with sweets, salty food and dairy products.

Foods/Drinks that CAUSE my breakouts

  • Skipping breakfast and meals
    Skipping meals especially breakfast will cause hormonal imbalance.
  • Sweets & salty food 
    I gave up sweets already. All candies, cupcakes, chocolates and etc. Aside from home-cooked salty foods, this includes fast food and processed food.
  • Dairy Products (cheese, milk and etc)
    I ate pizza whenever I want to. But as soon as I avoided it, I saw improvements on my skin. I’ll get a cystic acne once I eat a slice of pizza & other dairy products.
  • Eggs
    Eggs can cause blemishes for me. Egg is good for us but just to be sure, I don’t exceed one egg per day. We usually eat it for breakfast. Remember it’s not a tapsilog anymore without the egg.😉
  • Soft-drinks/sodas, artificial juices & sugary drinks
    Have you seen all the soft drinks experiments on social media? Have you seen the amount of black sugar in it? Black sugar is the sweetest kind of sugar. Artificial juices have high sugar content too. Still included as sweets for me. Milk tea is a no-no for me. I’m glad I gave them all up. I’m always about to throw up whenever I see a bottle of those sugary drinks.
  • Alcoholic drinks
    Alcohol will dehydrate the body. I breakout as a result of drinking it. I got a lot of whiteheads before especially on the chin area. I havent drank a single shot of alcohol for almost a year now and I rarely get breakouts on the chin area.

Foods/Drinks that REDUCE my breakouts

  • Vegetables and fruits everyday
    This literally reduced my breakouts. I eat vegetables everyday. I saw a huge difference. Plus they are very affordable. Win-win. :)
  • Water
    This one is also a main reason why I get less breakouts. Water also helps the body to flush out toxins. Your body needs to stay hydrated. I don’t know about you guys but I breakout when Im dehydrated. I make sure Im drinking enough. Not to the point I’m drowning myself. I drink big glasses for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The rest of the day & before going to sleep, drink in small glasses every hour so you’re not forcing your body.
  • Fresh fruit & vegetable juices
    Im talking about freshly squeezed juices. Not the pre-made juices that you can find in convenience stores. Those drinks contain a lot of sugar.

I’m taking a supplement once a day aside from these things. Again, Im realistic about acne. Yes, I still get blemishes but not as much as before. That makes me happy. I do not take accutane/isotretinoin or birth control pills.

Healthy foods especially vegetables will help the biggest & most important part, targeting the inside. Do not rely on skincare products alone. Yes, products will help you but for a small part only (outside skin).

Updated Skin Care Routine

It’s my first time to post my updated routine. My skin’s better with less breakouts these past few months. I think these things help a lot; my diet, skin care & Im slowly saying goodbye to puberty. Hyper-pigmentation is my main problem now. Let’s start~

image Oops, I forgot to include my EH Cleansing Tissue in this photo. It’s too big and it’ll take a lot of space.😅

1. BLOT OIL & USE MAKEUP REMOVER: blot skin whether bare-faced or wearing makeup then use cleansing wipes
I dont want the oil to cover my skin when Im splashing water. It feels like the cleansing step will not be effective. I blot my skin with a regular tissue before anything else. Then I use Etude House Every Month Cleansing Tissue if I have makeup on or after a long day of sweating & commuting. Full review here.

Review: Bath Origins Oatmeal Honey Soap

I haven’t reviewed enough local brands here on my blog. So today’s review is from a Filipino brand, Bath Origins. They offer products like soaps, body scrubs, diffusers and insect repellent. I saw Andi Manzano’s photo of their tea tree soap. She said it’s her mother’s business. The simple packaging caught my attention.


I went to Megamall and decided to get Oatmeal & Honey. I only found one review on this. The blogger used it on her face. She said it prevented her breakouts. I used it on my face once. It gave a very squeaky feel that was a bit drying. Now, Im using this soap as body exfoliator. 😊

My most awaited review…. Finally it’s here! I’ve been waiting for myself to review this.😂 I don’t know if you’re excited as much as I am. It’s one of the most recommended products by lushies on Youtube and Instagram. I had to try it out and see for myself. :)
