Strawberry Purifying Facial Scrub from Human Nature

No exaggeration at all but I do think that this facial scrub from Human Love Nature is one of the best skin care products that I have tried so far. I am so excited to share with you how I love everything about it.

First what do facial scrubs do? Facial scrubs literally scrubs the face in order to remove dead skin cells, deep seated dirt, black and white heads and all that bad stuff. This process is called exfoliation. Now, exfoliation can be harsh to the skin that is why it should only be done not more than three times a week. Most importantly, you have to choose a product that is gentle, mild and free from chemicals.

Having a sensitive skin, I did not dare using facial scrubs of any sort before. However, since Human Nature is known for their all natural and chemical free products, I did not think twice the minute I saw their Strawberry Purifying Facial Scrub at the Beauty Bar.

BENEFIT : How To Look The Best At Everything Flawless Complexion Makeup Kit

img_7442

For the record, I have never bought a single product from Benefit because man they are not cheap! There is no way that I am going to spend on an expensive item unless I am sure that it will work on my sensitive skin. I did own a Benefit Gimme Brow Gel and a POREfessional License to Blot oil-blotting stick but they were given to me as gifts. 

Thus, I am more than happy to come across this kit which contains travel sizes of Benefit’s primer, foundation, concealer and powder. 

The packaging of this kit is so pretty! Below is the front design of the box.img_7460

The back part of the box already tells you what products you got. As you can tell, I am in the shade “light”. The kit also comes in fair, medium and deep shades. Each kit costs P1,800.00 that I purchased from Sephora.

Did I lost 10 lbs in 3 days? The Military Diet Challenge

img_7429

So I have been interested in this type of diet where you can lost a maximum of 10 pounds or four kilos in a matter of three short days. The claim seemed catchy for me because eventually you do not have to be on a strict diet forever. Basically, you will be eating calorie counted, specific meals for only three days and eat normal on the next four days.

Now, there are things to consider that may affect the end result. The amount of weight that may be lost still depends on how a person eats normally or if there is an exercise involved etcetera. In my case, I eat rice during breakfast, lunch and dinner and lately I have not been exercising like I used to before.

The big questions is … did I really lost 10 pounds after going through the military diet? Well, you are in for a treat because I am going to be a guinea pig to those who are skeptical about it.

Most Affordable Micellar Water from Maybelline

I cannot justify enough how it is important to remove everything from the face before going to bed. I know that there are times when we feel too “tamad” (lazy) after office or school and it seemed like skin care is a massive work for us to do.

For times like these, there are micellar waters. Just get a cotton pad and saturate it with it, sweep it on the entire face (no need to rub) and that’s it! Congratulations, you have just cleansed, remove your makeup and moisturized at the same time. Cool right?!

The thing about Micellar waters is their price point, brands like Bioderma, Avene and Happy Skin cost at around P600.00 to P700.00 a bottle, pretty expensive for just a water-based makeup remover. It is a marvelous move for  Maybelline to release their version of this product for just P199.00 for every 200 ml bottle.
