Cleansing in Tandem! Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water & Sanicare Compact Cotton Pads Review

– Current favorite duo! –

I’m such a big fan of micellar cleansing waters. In fact, I already tried micellar cleansing waters from brands such as: Maybelline, L’oreal, Garnier (pink cap-for sensitive skin), Simple, Nivea, Ponds, La Roche Posay and Benton Cosmetics. They all did the job of effectively cleansing my face and some of them can even remove waterproof makeup. But if you’ll ask me what’s my top favorite, that would be my latest discovery… the Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water from Garnier. Want to know why? Let me break down the reasons.

IMG_8343

I’m such as sucker for product kits and deluxe samples be it for skincare or makeup and I’m positive that I’m not the only one … Am I right or Am I right? :p

It’s very important for me to try a certain product first to check if it will suit my skin type or if it will irritate me because …  girl,  nobody wants hives, extreme redness and itchiness on her face!

I have listed below some of the Pro’s and Con’s of  product kits and deluxe samples based on my opinion.

IMG_7642

When I first saw this set, I felt ecstatic! Click HERE to watch the Video. 

Huxley is a cult favorite Korean skincare brand named after the author, Mr. Aldous Huxley. The entire brand is leading the trend of utilizing cactus oils for hydration as what women of the Sahara desert does. Their price line is a bit on the pricier side that’s why I’m glad that they came up with this deluxe collection set. Now I have the chance to try each of the products and see for myself if I’m gonna love them or not before splurging on the full size versions.

Tony Moly Egg Pore Nose Pack Review

Hey there!

Blackheads and whiteheads are really pain in the ass (who woudn’t agree to that right?) and mostly they like to “camp” in the pores of our nose where they are really noticeable, it’s like they are waving hello!. For me squeezing them out using my bare hands or extracting tools are not good ideas because one, it’s not hygenic and two, I feel like it can damage the skin or worst enlarge the pores even more.  Nose strips are my kind of guy for the job of safely removing these strangers off my pores … and the one that actually work is the Egg  Pore Nose Pack from the brand Tony Moly.

Sunscreen and Primer in One! Biore UV Perfect Bright Face Milk Review

If there is one product that constantly touches my face every single day, it is this sunscreen from the Japanese brand, Biore. The brand has quite a reputation in terms of the effectiveness of its skin care products and how gentle they are in the skin. Let us look at the claims of this Biore UV Perfect Bright Face Milk one by one and I will let you know my thoughts about them.

Superior Double UV Block for Maximum Protection

With its Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 50 PA ++++, Oh yeah! I put this sunscreen to the test last summer when we went for a short vacation at Boracay. It was scorching hot there as we walked to explore the island and as we enjoyed the beach. Knowing that my sunscreen contains a sufficient amount of protection factor, I did not worry that my face will be totally damaged by the sun’s UV rays. Though my face and body in general became a little tan because of sun exposure, my skin recovered really fast and I did not experienced painful sunburns.

Current Evening Skin Care Routine

Title Poster

Heys guys! How is it going? It’s been a year since I shared my last skin care routine and there are a lot of changes since then. Yes, I have been utilizing more products than before and this makes my skin smoother and healthier than ever. 

STEP 1: CLEANSING

If you are an avid reader of this blog, I trust that you already know how sensitive my skin is. It’s no surprise that I am very picky when it comes to the products that I am getting … and then there comes SIMPLE! This skin care brand from UK which came to the Philippines just last year, claims to be the “senstive skin experts” (ugh! like music to my ears). Simple’s Moisturising Facial Wash is so gentle it does not sting my eyes. It’s bubbly but not too foamy. Aside from the fact that it is way more affordable than Cetaphil, it also has multi-vitamins in it.

STEP 2: TONING

Skin Care made FUN! Bubble up with Elizavecca Carbonated Clay Mask

I love indulging my face on various sheet masks (mostly korean’s) because of countless reasons. Clay or mud types of masks however are not the best options for me because I feel like they are so messy to work with. Until I came across and became intrigued with the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Bubble Carbonated Clay Mask (whew! that’s  a mouthful!). This clay mask is not your ordinary “mud pack” kind of thing. Right after application, it instantly bubbles up like crazy until it dominates the entire face which sounds fun!

Elizavecca Cosmetics is a Korean brand and I actually have their Skin Liar Primer which I love. I do not know about the term “milky piggy”  and what it’s got to do with the product but it’s still cute so carry lang din (or maybe because pigs loves to play with mud like Peppa hehe!). It is said that the mask is carbonated for it contains carbonic acid, I searched it’s scientific definition and my mind collapsed lol! Just imagine fizzy drinks like your regular soda, it contains carbonic acid which makes it fizz and bubble up when opened. Some of this clay mask’s ingredients are green tea extracts and charcoal powder. I got it for P550.00 from Althea Philippines.

The product itself  is a clay-based mask that promises to deep clean the pores, makes the skin moist, soft and smooth. It is said to be suitable for all skin types. Read more below to know if these claims are true.
