My 2015 Birthday Haul

This post combines my haul from February to April (which is my birth month). Some products are not in the pic. I already forgot I purchased them. Lol. They are still in this post. Thank goodness I saved a draft months ago. The serums are in my wishlist so I had to buy them. I just grabbed the others quickly without even realizing it until I paid at the counter. Hahaha. image

Review: Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

11 Apr

Hello ladies! As promised, I will review all the products in my latest haul.

So here’s the first product. Let’s start! πŸ™‚

Image

I posted on my facebook page that I did 20% TCA Peel on my face. TCA peel can be irritating so I thought I needed something to soothe the itchiness. Aloe vera is known for it’s soothing and moisture benefits. πŸ™‚

For a product that’s worth less than 250 pesos, this is a steal! Why? It’s because of the size! It’s 300ml! It’s huge and it will take a long time before I empty this container. Btw, Im using this for my face and hands.

Image

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Huge size (300ml)
  • Skin quickly absorbs the gel
  • Soothing and cooling effect
  • Doesn’t cause more skin oiliness
  • Lightweight
  • No paraben, mineral oil and artificial colors

Cons:

  • contains alcohol and perfume
  • no spatula, make sure your hands are super clean! πŸ™‚

Overall, I liked this gel from Nature Republic. It provided enough moisture. I would repurchase this if I already got rid of my pimples.

Updated: March 2014 Mini Haul

30 Mar

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

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

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.

Cleene Cotton Rounds/Pads
I used this to apply the 20% TCA Peel on my face. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚

I’ll post the reviews soon. Since I’mΒ using the foam and cream for about two weeks now. πŸ™‚
