Review: Sooper Beaute Pimple Away Day Cream

5 Feb

Yesterday, we reviewed body care products. Continuing our local theme this week with Sooper Beaute’s spot treatment. I found out about this brand from Instagram reviewers. I have read a lot of positive feedbacks. BeautyMNL reached out to me before and they gave products of my choice. And as usual, I wanted skin care. I found this day cream when it was on sale. I got it for 100 pesos.

Am I satisfied? On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate it a 7. Natural ingredients take some time to be effective but they’re safer than chemicals. I did not expect that it will make a difference even in small blemishes. I was wrong. It’s effective for small ones. I did not see drastic change on cystic acne though.

I experienced mild peeling on spots where I applied it. Is it just me? I like the peeling because it minimizes hyperpigmentation. It has citrus limon. I assume it’s included for its cleansing ability, not as fragrance. The cream has mild scent but I couldn’t describe what exactly it is. Dont worry because it will be gone once absorbed. Another plus for not causing irritation. With the results I got, I’d recommend it for those with mild acne. You can get this on SooperBeaute.com or BeautyMNL.com

The last con has nothing to do with the product’s performance. But when it comes to packaging, color combination is important so the texts are easy to read. The label has yellow background, the product name should be pink or dark colored instead of white.

BeautyMNL Haul: Skin Care, Makeup and Body Care

8 Oct

It’s been 2 months since I posted a haul. I’m back with another one. This time it’s from a local/Philippine-based beauty website. BeautyMNL carries hundreds of local and international brands from drugstore to high-end. They have korean brands as well. COSRX, Klairs, Innisfree, Tony Moly and YET to name a few. I got the opportunity to order from them.

My haul is a mix of products with high ratings, bestsellers and a new release:


Loreal Refreshing Micellar Water

 Micellar water became a huge hit last year and many brands are releasing their own version. Loreal just released one here. I received a newletter from them telling me this was on sale. I knew I had to get it. Can’t say no to discounts. This is my first skin care product from Loreal. It only has 8 ingredients. It’ll be a good makeup remover especially if you’re a minimalist like me. Full details here

Detail Mineral Pressed Powder

Detail MakeOver is a local/Philippine brand. Mineral Pressed Powder caught my attention because of its size. It’s 10 grams for 199 pesos ($4). It’s such a steal compared to other powders. They have matte liquid lipsticks and palettes as well. Full details here

Maybelline ColorSensational Matte in Clay Crush

Now this is THE trend for lipstick addicts. If you want brown shades for a drugstore price, go for Maybelline’s Creamy Matte Brown line. Yes, they are perfect! I know the bestselling colors are quite difficult to find in-stores. Good thing all shades; Nude Embrace, Daringly Nude, Clay Crush, Nude Nuance & Burgundy Blush are available on their website.


Sooper Beaute Pimple Away Day Cream

This pimple cream is one of the bestsellers. Sooper Beaute is a local brand. I found out about them on Instagram. I’m seeing many positive feedbacks after using their products. I’ve been stessed lately and it’s automatic for me to get breakouts. I’m using this cream since the day I got the package. I’m liking it so far. This will probably be the first one to be reviewed here on my blog. Full details here

Baroness Green Tea Mask

A new korean brand in PH. They have different face masks but I chose green tea. We all know green tea is good for calming and detoxing. It’s great for oily and acne prone skin. Full details here

Golden Cup Balm

This menthol balm received high ratings from reviewers. It has a relaxing and soothing scent. I got the 4g tin to test it first. We all know menthol balms are pinoys’ savior when we get sick. We use it if we have fever, colds, cough, muscle pains and etc. I’ll use this mainly for muscle pains and especially for my severe migraines. Full details here

Instantly Ageless Eyebag Remover

img_1984
When this came out, it was all over social media. I watched some before and after videos to see its purpose.I was really amazed on how quick you’ll see its effect. I knew I had to see it for myself. It’s like instant botox without the needle. I ordered this because I have malar festoons also know as eye bags on the mid cheek. It’s a difficult condition to treat. I dont know how I got them, from lack of sleep or hereditary. I’ll share my own before and after photos in my full review. Full details here

Olay Skin Whitening Bar with Rose & Milk & Black Beauty Shampoo with Conditioner

img_1986
I got these two as freebies. A good combination of sample and full sized items. Black Beauty comes in a 10ml-sachet while Olay Whitening Bar is 90g. Its size is enough on my short hair for at least two uses. You can use Olay Whitening bar for a long time.

So far I’m using two items in this haul. Can’t wait to use the rest! Which one would you like to try in this post? Share them below. My whole shopping experience will be posted tomorrow with bonus tips! 😉
