October Faves: ASMR, Makeup, Skin & Body Care

28 Oct

I’m back with my latest favorites!☺ It’s been weeks since I posted on this blog. I received messages on Facebook this month and that inspired me. Hello Maggie and Jacqueline!☺

ASMR

I listen to Autonomous sensory meridian response or ASMR before going to sleep. It gives me a tingling feeling mostly on the head/hair. At first, I thought it was weird but it really is effective. I just dont know how will I explain this to someone in real life. Haha! It relaxes my mind and body. My favorite artists are MassageASMR, ASMRsurge, ASMRsoundspace, Rapunzel, My favorite sounds are hair cut, slow tapping, lids, ear cleaning, metal dental picks and kinetic sand.

Makeup

Dermacol Make-up cover in 110
I ordered 2 testers of this raved foundation. I chose 110 because it leans to yellow undertone. It’s not full coverage in my opinion but I use less concealer over it. It’s creamy and easy to blend. I have combination skin now. It can accentuate dry areas. So be sure to moisturize especially for dry skin. It’s a stage makeup. I look “snatched” when I use it. Skin looks smooth and totally flat without blush and contour. The longevity is good too.

Skin Care

Purederm Q-10 Makeup Cleansing Tissues
My favorite makeup remover isnt available for a month now. I needed to find a replacement that’s less than 100 pesos. This variant is 89 pesos in Watsons/SM Department Store. The others like Collagen & Argan is at 108 pesos. I really cant tell the difference in the ingredients. I always go for the cheapest. πŸ˜›

Desert Essence Cleansing Bar Tea Tree Therapy
This is my face wash for almost 3 months now. This is one of the few cleansers that did not irritate me. No initial purging when I used it for the first time. It doesnt leave any residue/film. It heals my breakouts in as early as two days. You can get this at Healthy Options branches for 299 pesos.

Olivarrier Fluid Oil
This is a fast absorbing oil. It’s pure Squalane. I was worried because Squalane has a comedogenic level 1. It can block pores and cause breakouts for some. Luckily, I didnt get any negative reactions from it. I use this twice a day on wrinkle prone areas like undereye and sides of mouth. Argan oil is liquid gold because it gives noticeable glow. Squalane gives a subtle glow.

Body Care

Benton Shea Butter and Coconut Hand Cream
My hobby lately is washing clothes. I’m back to working out. I wash my clothes immediately to avoid germs and odor. This hand cream from Benton is my savior. It’s quite thick which instantly gives moisture. It makes my skin soft. I apply this every night as intense hand treatment. I just dont like the scent. I reminds me of butter. Like I’m marinating something. πŸ˜…

That’s it for my favorites. They’re only few, right? I guess I’m not a hoarder anymore.πŸ˜› My audience ranges from 12 to 23 years old. I’m trying to use products that are locally available. I know it can get expensive sometimes for young people. So comment below if you have any review request. I have local brands lined up.☺

My Top 5 Makeup Removers

18 Feb

I’ve been doing reviews since this year has started. Honestly, I’m already getting tired of it. So we’ll do the Top 5 series this week. I’ve tried a lot of makeup removers since I got into skin care. I have extremely oily and sensitive skin that’s prone to breakouts. I’m skeptical to use new products. Most of them are okay and some became my favorite. For the past six years, here are the products I’d gladly repurchase.


Skinlite Make-up Cleansing Tissues

I’m using this for 2 years now since I couldn’t find Purederm’s Acne Cleansing Wipes. It has green tea, chamomile, sage,Β  lavender, rosemary, aloe, ginseng and allantoin for cleansing. Its size, texture and performance are the same with Purederm’s. No breakouts too. I usually get mine in the beauty section of Landmark Makati. 30 sheets for Php 89


Etude House Every Month Cleansing Tissues

image

This has many cleansing ingredients too. It’s packed withΒ broccoli, tea tree, garlic, camellia leaf, apple, rice bran, aloe, avocado, blueberry, oatmeal, spinach, cucumber, walnut & wine extracts. What I like most about itΒ is its size. It’s bigger compared to other makeup wipes. One sheet is actually big for my full face makeup. I could get the most out of it and remove everything. Available at your local Etude House branches and kiosks. 15 sheets for Php 128 / 50 sheets for Php 248


Purederm Acne-Cleansing Wipes

image

I think this is phased out already but this was my first ever favorite. The cloths are moist enough to remove my full face makeup. It had no specific scent in my opinion. I was using this when I had many breakouts. It did not aggravate my acne. I remember this was under 100 pesos too.


Loreal Refreshing Micellar Water

img_1979

My first micellar water. It has minimal ingredients. It really feels refreshing while you’re wiping off makeup. It feels like I’ve already washed my face. No sticky feeling. It says no need to rinse but I still proceed to my face wash and other steps because we can’t skip those. I didn’t break out while using this. This is good for 6 months use after opening. 250ml for Php 225


Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil – Moisture

images

Cleansing oils are for heavy duty makeup. I’ve only used one and it’s from Etude House. I followed the instructions after I posted my full review on this. The results were better. My makeup melted away plus it foams up when rinsed with water. It added moisture to my skin. A great prep step especially if you’re using a drying face wash. Little goes a long way. It has a light lemon scent. It did not cause breakouts. 185ml for Php 848

September 2014 Haul

24 Sep

Hello ladies. Today is a shopping and derma day for me. I went to my dermatologist and had injections on my 8 huge pimples. I had a major breakout again this month because of stress and overthinking. 😦 Anyway, let’s start! πŸ™‚

haul

1. Etude House Baking Powder Cleansing Foam Moist – PHP 428
I wanted a new facial wash because I think my facial wash is not doing its job, my skin feels heavy. I remove my all-day makeup with cleansing tissues before I use facial wash. I found out that baking powder is a good cleanser. The normal version causes dryness even if you have oily skin so I chose this version to maintain the moisture of my skin. πŸ˜‰

2. Etude House Dear Darling Tint in Red – PHP 248
I dont know why I grabbed this. My impulsive buying skill is attacking me again. Haha. πŸ™‚

3. VMV Hypoallergenics Id Monolaurin Gel – PHP 795
I’ve been wanting to buy this for so long. I want to buy the 50ml bottle because I want to try it out and see if it will work. Unfortunately it’s always out of stock so I bought the full size instead. Let’s see if this will work well for me. πŸ˜€

4. Purederm Makeup Cleansing Tissues – PHP 119
These are in Lavender and Cucumber. It’s 119 for a total of 60 sheets. Been repurchasing this because it’s affordable. Im just waiting for the right time to review this. πŸ˜›

5. Etude House Pearl Aura Brightening Essence (sample) – Freebie
This sample is a GWP for every 500 worth of purchase. I will do a first impression post for this.

July 2014 Mini Haul

19 Jul

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)

image

1. VMV Hypoallergenics Red Better Spot Corrector – PHP 450 approx $10
2. Purederm Makeup Cleansing Tissues (30 sheets each) – PHP 119 for 2 packs approx $2.76
3. Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Foundation – PHP 99.75 approx $2.30
4. Belo AcnePro Gel Face Wash – PHP 99.75 approx $2.31
5. Belo AcnePro Treatment Toner – PHP 79.00 approx $1.83

Purederm Acne Wash Cleansing Tissues review

10 Aug

I was going to buy either Etude House or The Face Shop’s cleansing tissues but my budget was only 100 pesos. Their tissues worth 98 and 95 pesos are out of stock. I have to stick to my budget because I’m saving up for BIGBANG’s Alive Tour. I know Watsons have different skincare products that are affordable so I went there and bought this. This is my first time to use a Purederm product. πŸ™‚

Pros:

  • Affordable. It costs 99.75 pesos only for 30 sheets
  • Removes makeup
  • Contains anti-acne ingredients
  • Available at all Watsons branches. I Β don’t know if this is available at other stores.
  • Did not cause breakouts/pimples
  • The packaging, it comes with a box. πŸ™‚

Cons:

  • The scent is strong for me
