November 2014 Mini Haul

8 Nov

Hi. As promised, here’s my haul. I ran out of supplies. I had to replenish or even find an alternative. It’s difficult to find my cleansing tissues at Watsons so I wanted a new one. We went to Landmark Makati for a change. I found an alternative cleansing tissue. I also bought a spot treatment because Im out of budget if I buy VMV Hypoallergenics Red Better Spot Corrector again.

Here’s the list of the products:

  1. SKINLITE Make-up Cleansing Tissues (Green Tea Extract)
  2. SKINLITE Make-up Cleansing Tissues (Cucumber Extract)
  3. Belo Essentials AcnePro Pimple Gel
  4. Skinmate Shark Oil (7.5ml) – click here for my review

So that’s it. I would love to know what products can you recommend for makeup remover, spot correctors and whitening/dark spot remover. Please share yours on the comment box below. πŸ™‚

Skinmate Shark Oil review

12 Oct

UPDATED: AUG. 25, 2013

Directions

  • This is applied as spot treatment only, not for the whole face.
  • NEVER use cotton when applying Skinmate Shark Oil as it will irritate skin.
  • Apply Skinmate Placenta Cream right after applying Skinmate Shark Oil. It works as a moisturizer.
  • After applying shark oil for one straight week, one can now apply it every other night.

My tips

  • It is better if you consult a dermatologist about your skin problems.
  • Apply it on the affected areas only like on dark spots. Take note that you should not apply it on the whole face.
  • After applying it for one straight week, let your skin rest for one to three weeks. Then apply it again but make sure it’s every other night only.
  • Don’t use it too much. Too much peeling may lead to skin darkening
  • Avoid sun exposure
  • Wear sun block if you’re going out

Packaging:

Pros:

  • it peels skin within 3 days
  • lightens dark spots within a week
  • the peeling is not that obvious unlike other peeling products
  • affordable

Cons:

  • It has this smell but it’s completely tolerable
  • I don’t like the redness of my skin when I’m under the peeling session.
  • Can’t peel my deep acne marks
