June – July 2016 Favorites

31 Jul

It took a while for us to select these products. I combined them because I didnt want to make a short post. I use the same routine but I added new items. Products for sunburn and skin repairing. I also included my favorite food and music.


Skin Care

Skinlite Makeup Remover Wipes
Etude House Every Month Cleansing Tissue is always sold out in stores. This became my favorite. Purederm is its sister company. It has 30 sheets for 89 pesos ($2) only. How affordable is that? It removes my makeup with just one sheet. It’s in plastic packaging and box. You’re sure that they wont dry out. It’s always available in Landmark Department Stores.

SKQIN Dual Sissi Mask (Gold & Silver)
I felt that my skin wants extra hydration. These masks fit my face shape perfectly. It wont slide off. I can move freely. It moisturizes skin like a baby’s bum.

Gloria’s Lavender Soap
My sister bought a soap set during our Boracay trip. The first thing we used was the lavender soap. We’re using it until now that we’re back home. We are obsessed with lavender. Even our diffuser is in that scent.

Foodaholic Snail 100 Soothing Gel
This gel helped to soothe our sunburn. It calms the skin right away. Instantly, like few seconds after application. We use it for the whole body because it’s not sticky. No residue and it feels like we didnt apply anything.

My sister knows that I love snail. She saw me using TM’s line in 2011. She finally tried the magic of snail slime. Her sunburn and peeling on the face got better in just 2 days of using Foodaholic Snail Soothing Gel. She loves it now!

Rucy’s Vanity Whitening Lotion
I bought foundation and it matches my face skin tone. But my neck, chest, arms and legs became dark when we went to the beach. I’m using this lotion on my neck and chest. Hoping it would at least help to whiten those areas.

Most products in this post are for hydration. My skin felt super dry when we’re in the plane. Probably because of the pressure and lack of air. I could really feel it and it’s uncomfortable.


Food

Fries
I kept on eating fries these past few days. I know it’s unhealthy. I’m trying to control myself. I’m craving for Potato Corner’s cheese flavor and McDonald’s. Aaaah. So good!

Dunkin Donut Choco Butternut
My all time favorite donut. It’s just right and not too sweet. They said choco butternut is now in the premium line. It just got thicker. Nothing changed with its taste.


Music

Green Day
I’ve been listening to Green Day songs lately….. as in everyday. Some of my favorites; Give Me Novacaine, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, American Idiot, Wake Me Up When September Ends, 21 Guns, Holiday, Good Riddance, Basket Case and the 9-minute song, Jesus of Suburbia. I grew up listening to them. I want to see them live someday. Their fans say they sound so good in live concerts. Punk rock will always have a special place in my heart. One of my most favorite genres.


What were you obsessing on for this month?

First Impression: SKQIN Dual Sissi Mask – Gold & Silver Sissi

9 May

These were included in Wishtrend’s package. My first impression is they all look weird. They’re not like your regular sheet masks. Which is way better in my opinion.

There are 2 variants, Gold sissi for anti-aging and moisturizing while Silver Sissi is for anti-aging and brightening.

Gold Sissi: The product which has the instant improvement for wrinkles with filling moisturizing that has lifting effect.

Silver Sissi: The instant improvement for wrinkles with filling moisturizing, the instant whitening with using BIO BRIT 3 Complex through the long study.

PROS:
-Affordable, a set of 5 sheets is priced at $17. It’s discounted now on Wishtrend’s website for $15.75
-Sheets are thick and wont rip apart
-Light lemon scent
-The ear part does help to match any face shape
-Good amount of essence to make the sheet moist
-This mask covers my entire chubby face including the jaw area. Normal sheet masks neglect that area.
-Doesnt slide off and I can move freely
-Moisturizing and calming

CONS:
-None so far

Here’s my selfie. I put it on then watched tv while eating ice cream cake. Haha.

It’s my first time to try a mask that covers the jaws too. I thought they’re just made to help you get that v-shape. These were also designed to fit any face shape. It does feel like that because all parts of my face absorbed the essence.

The silver variant has instant whitening after every use but it’s only temporary like other brands. Both variants are moisturizing but I prefer the gold one because I have dry patches right now.

Overall, these are good addition to any routine. No breakouts for me. They’re like customizable masks because they’ll fit with your face shape. It wont slide off so you can do whatever you want while it’s on your face. I’d totally recommend these.

April 2016 Birthday Haul

1 May

My birth month is done already? That was fast. I dont celebrate my birthdays and never had parties. I just like to get stuff off my wishlist so I did a small haul again. Most items here are gifts from my sister and collaboration with Wishtrend. Let’s start

SKIN CARE

BELO Tranexamic Kojic Acid Soap
I bought this to lighten my dark spots. I find that it’s too harsh because it has 4 types of acids. I only use it on breakouts. It dries acne fast.

ETUDE HOUSE AC Clinic Spot Patch
An impulse buy and my sister got it for me.

ETUDE HOUSE Wonder Pore Freshner
Another gift from my sis. I’m not yet sure if I will declare it as one of my holy grails.

KLAIRS Midnight Blue Calming Cream
Wishtrend sent this to me. It has lavender which is one of my favorite ingredients. It has ceramide too that’s needed for my dry flakey flare ups. I’ll post my full review next week!

LUSH Mask of Magnaminty
I was praying and asking signs if this mask is available then I should get another tub. If not, it’s time to try a new one from another brand. To my surprise it’s available when I visited their store.

LUSH Fresh Farmacy
My all time favorite cleanser. I took a break from using this for almost a month now. I want to have it on hand just in case I like to go back to it.

SKIN & LAB Dr. Color Effect Red Serum
This is a sample size in my recent Wishtrend package. It’s a raved product in 2014 or last year. Maybe I’ll do a first impression post soon.

SKQIN Dual Sissi Mask Moisturizing & Brightening
These masks were added to Wishtrend’s package as a bonus. I’m so glad they gave us 4 masks. I’m excited to try them out. It’ll be my first time to try a mask that also gives love for our chin area.

MAKE UP

MAYBELLINE Clear Smooth All in One Powder Foundation
I set my concealer with this foundation. It’s so matte and adds coverage to my  makeup. It’s really affordable, 169 pesos (approx. $4)

BODY CARE

GOODAL Cherry Blossom Hand Cream & THE FACE SHOP Kakao Friends Hand Cream Apeach Cherry Blossom
Gifts from my sister again. I’m spoiled. Haha. It’s spring time in Korea and now brands are releasing cherry blossom lotions.

ACCESSORIES

ETUDE HOUSE Lash Curler for Monolid
Another gift from my sister. I actually prefer the silver curler because it’s more affordable. But my sister said this rose gold one looks even better.

There’s not so much in my hauls, right? I’m trying to reduce hoarding or making impulse buys. I’m having a hard time storing them. Haha. Aaaaah, sometimes the beauty world is tiring for me with all the consumerism and hyped up products.
