My 300 Peso ($6) Haul From BeautyMNL

19 Mar

Hello readers! I’ve been MIA these past few weeks but now I’m back with a haul. I’m a reviewer on BeautyMNL and earned some credits. I bought 5 products using the reward. I think I managed to get the most out of it. The technique here is to watch out for announcements about free shipping so you’ll be able to add more items on your cart.

Here are the five products that I got:


ZENUTRIENTS Balancing Tea Tree Soap

Description: Cleanses, purifies, and balances skin with acne-busting tea tree oil; leaves skin feeling refreshed and invigorated; made with the best blend of natural ingredients with no artificial additives

I’m about to run out of my current cleanser. I need new ones to try. Zenutrients has been in the market for quite some time now and is well-known local brand. I read all reviews about their tea tree soap. I know what to expect. As a realist, I have to look at the good and bad sides. I’ll find out if it’ll work for me after a month. It’s 100 grams for 88 pesos


LUX White Impress Body Wash

Description: Exquisitely created by Master Perfumer Nicole Mancini; features the sheer, sparkly notes of peach, apple, and bergamot; features a unique triple-action system containing natural mulberry extract and honey; enriched with minerals and antioxidants; leaves skin soft, smooth and more radiant

I’m going to give this to my sister. She’s into body wash. It’s a part of her de-stressing routine. I prefer the bestseller variant but it was sold out. White Impress is next to it based on the 4-star rating on the site. It’s 220ml for 120 pesos.


JERGENS Mild Soap

Description: Softly cleanses with a rich lather that won’t strip away essential moisture; all-natural formula is safe for sensitive pelts; refreshes and rejuvenates with a light fragrance for a silky, supple feel

My current cleanser for contact dermatitis was prescribed by my dermatologist. I read its ingredients list and honestly I dont think it has enough cleansing properties. But it doesn’t break me out which is surprising. It’s quite pricey though and I needed an alternative. Jergens Mild Soap has similar ingredients. It’s 135 grams for 36 pesos only. The price can’t be beaten.


CARONIA Green Tea Hand Sanitizer

Description: Purifies skin by killing 99.9% of germs; nourishes and moisturizes the hands; leaves behind a hydrated feeling.

I wash my hands like crazy! Minimum of 10 times daily. Yes, I know I’m “OC”. It’s uncomfortable for me if I can’t wash my hands when I’m out of the house. I want a little sanitizer or alcohol that I can carry in my bag. I got Caronia’s 50ml hand sanitizer for 35 pesos only. I chose Green Tea because well… I like green tea. There are other variants like Lavender, Eucalyptus and Watermelon.


SWAN Royalex Round Latex Sponge in Pink

Description: Flat shape and rounded edge allows for seamless makeup application even in hard-to-reach spots; travel-friendly size.

I had 23 pesos left in my credits. Sinagad ko na. I found this 20-peso sponge. I’ve always had white ones. Actually I bought it because of the colors. It’s available in purple, green, orange, blue, pink, light pink and Red. I chose pink because it’s the cutest in my opinion. I think you can use it for liquid, baking and powder foundation.

April 2016 Favorites

30 Apr

A lot of things have happened this month. Stressful stuff but I still had time to switch products and use them all up. I’m going through my stash because I dont want to waste anything.

SKIN CARE

BELO Kojic + Tranexamic Acid
My skin got used to my holy grail cleanser. I took a break from it and tried this soap. My main problem is dark spots and I need to lighten them. I noticed this soap has Salicylic and Lactic acid for antibacterial and exfoliation. It’s too harsh for the whole face. I’m using it on breakouts only. Full review will be up soon!

COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid
My current spot treatment. It’s effective to turn my cystic acne into a whitehead/that stage when it’s healing and about to dry out. I think its formulation is too strong so I dont use it for big areas on the face.

MAKE UP

THE FACE SHOP Lovely Me:Ex Stick Concealer
I lack sleep these past few weeks and my undereye area became darker. I’m reaching for TFS stick concealer to cover my dark circles. It does the job and it’s not cakey.

ETUDE HOUSE Oh M Eye Line
I think I need a liquid liner with thinner brush. I’m just using it all up. I’m practicing how to do winged liner on my monolid. I’m getting the hang of it. This liner is good for beginners because it’s easy to remove. It crumbles and doesnt smudge when you remove it.

BODY CARE

JERGENS Hydrating Coconut
I love to use this at night. It smells so good and the scent relaxes me. It’s sinks in the skin quickly and doesnt leave sticky/oily feeling.

ACCESSORIES

ETUDE HOUSE My Beauty Tool Lash Curler for Monolid
I didnt know there’s a curler specifically for monolid. It grabs the lashes easier and curls them up effectively.

BEAUTY BAR Compact Mirror
Im confident to use this mirror because my flaws are not prominent when I look at it. It has two sides, regular and a magnified one. Nope, it’s not like in the department stores. Those mirrors at makeup counters are too magnified that they just show flaws. Haha. It’s their strategy too, I guess.

MUSIC

SS501 – Love Ya
I watched Boys Before Flowers again and finished all episodes in 3 days. I was focused on Gu Jun Pyo before. This time, I was into the character of Kim Hyun Joong, Ji Hoo. I missed his group SS501 after watching the drama. Love Ya is my favorite song. I started listening to it again everyday. Seriously, it’s my LSS. I still support their group despite his issues. I’m glad their sub-group SS301 performed this year.

2NE1 songs
2NE1 is my one and only favorite girl group. They changed the Kpop game to fierce and badass in 2009. The whole fandom of blackjacks were devastated on YG Entertainment’s statement. Minzy didn’t renew her contract and she’s leaving the group. I kept on watching their last performance as 4 members at Mnet Asian Music Awards 2015. We’re waiting for their comeback for too long while the other members are doing side projects. Maknae was kinda left out. No, I’m not blaming the girls. The management should’ve done something. This is the negative side of being an artist/celebrity, income and projects are not fixed.

So that’s it. Sorry this post has too much text. I need to reduce my ramblings.πŸ˜‚

21 Nov

Hello readers! Our theme this week is body care. To start off, I’ll be reviewing a product from a trusted brand, Jergens. It’s always recommended by a lot of dermatologists… Including my brother’s doctor. I’m not skeptical to use this because I know we have the same sensitive skin.

I was lucky enough to receive a sample. Oh boy, it’s a full size bottle! ❀️ I’m ready to share my thoughts after using it for quite a while now. 😊✨

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.πŸ˜…

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 likeΒ a highlighter but for your body.✨ Overall, I’m impressed and my sensitive skin approves this lotion. 😊
