Sample Room Products for August + Haul

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

     Hello! I'm back with a haul post and products that I got from sample room. I'm on a budget/ tipid mode again because I still have lots of skin care and makeup products to try. I just bought my essentials that I'll be using everyday especially for my face and body. Since I'm on the resting period/stage on using Snoe White Special Black Beauty Bar, I opted to use a milder soap from Beauty and Bright. I also repurchased another bar of my favorite Cyleina Kojic Soap because I miss the scent of this bar. If you'll ask me why I don't use the same brand or kind of soap every month, well I alternate the soaps that I use because I don't want to be immune to any of them.

My Skin Care Regimen

Monday, August 13, 2012

     Hi loves! I'm worrying that another typhoon (Helen) will give sleepless nights and panic attacks to those living near rivers, creeks and low lands. After a day of sunshine here's another day of gloomy sky. If only we can talk to mother nature and ask her to give us normal amount of rainfall then we'll all be appease. Let's just pray that God will guide and give us strength and patience to endure all these natural disasters that we have to face.
     Today is errands day and we're off to Sm Fairview for some grocery and window shopping :D I'm also excited because the kiddo in me wants to play arcade games, weeee!~ So before going outside, I want to share my skin care regimen. Almost all of these skin care products became my HG (holy grail). Believe me when I say that I've tried and tested these soaps since 2009. Some brands specially with the soap only became my favorites this year. 

     My facial soaps- I use this soap once or twice a day. I also use a special soap e.g my skin is acting up or I want to lighten dried up zits.

Step 1: I leave the soaps lather for 2 minutes then rinse.

Step 2: After the Calamansi soap (ALL ORGANICS/SNOE WHITE) I leave the soaps lather on my
face for 2 minutes then rinse.
     I only use one toner before until I tried something that is almost close to organic because of its ingredients (will make a review soon)- All Organics Lemongrass Facial toner and Dr. Skin Oil Control Toner

My new love! I included this on my skin care regimen because it helped me lessen my pimples during my monthly period.
     For my moisturizer- I only use GNC Vitamin C Moisturizer and Camaru Naturals Camellia Oil
     And for my face mask- I use Purederm's Dual Well-Being twice a week.

     Basically that's it! I will update this post later. I want to add something but I can't find the pictures of them. Hope you enjoyed reading this. Stay safe everyone!

Good Times!~

Product Review: Cyleina Organic Carrot Soap

Monday, June 11, 2012

     Another organic soap review! If my memory serves me right, the first time I bought an organic soap was 5 years ago. I'm sooo curious with the label natural and organic during that time. My mind is easily swayed by positive feed backs from GT forum and I can't resists when someone swears it's effective! my skin got lighter, I noticed that I'm glowing, blah, blah, blah. Cyleina is the first brand of organic soap that I've tried. I had a good experience with their soaps before. I can say it's both effective and affordable but after some time I just got bored with it. Maybe my skin got immune with it and the effect that I wanted just plateaud after two years of daily use but their Kojic Acid became a staple in our bathroom. 

     So when I ran out of my favorite organic soaps and have no time to visit Trinoma, I always end up buying Cyleina. Without a doubt, their soap still deserves a review in my blog. I can call this a life saver! My love for organic soap will go on and on. After two weeks of using Cyleina carrot soap, here's my initial review. I will update this post once I finished the whole bar.
Cyleina Organic Carrot Soap
The organic carrot extract in Cyleina soap is  power packed with anti-oxidants, Alpha  Hydroxy Acids and vitamins A&C, formulated to lighten skin tone, revitalize skin, get rid of blackheads, provide acne relief, promote smooth, younger and glowing healthy skin.
Cyleina Organic Carrot Soap
The soap is white in color but has this orange-y patches on it.
size: 120grams

price: 65php (Around $1.50)

place bought: Watson's Health and Beauty Store, Sm Fairview

instruction for use: Use as bath soap and facial wash, for face and body

ingredients: Vegetable Oil, Almond Oil, Cocao Butter, Carrot, Pineapple Extract, Cinnamon Powder and Essential Oils

What I like:
  • It's organic!
  • The scent- smells like candy, sweet but not overpowering.
  • Gives a "glow" on skin after use.
  • It lightened (just a bit) some very small dark spots on my face but it took two weeks.
  • Affordable
  • Easily accessible- now available at Watson's.
  • Wide selection of soap for different skin needs.
  • Has manufacturing and expiry date.
  • Their packaging is cute and eye-catching.
  • The soap produces rich and thick foam.
What I don't like:
  • Melts easily unlike All Organics (same organic soap which doesn't contain any soap hardener).
  • A bit drying on skin.
Will I repurchase? Maybe, If I see good results within a month. Carrot soap is new to me so I need to gauge it first before getting hooked.

     I give this soap a 4/5 rating. What amazed me is the soap's ability to give a rosy glow on my cheeks. I'm still giving this a month to see if there's a change on the color of my pimple marks.

     That's all for now. I'm having a Mini THANK YOU Giveaway here:

Good Times!~

Product Review: Cyleina Organic Kojic Soap

Sunday, February 12, 2012

    Hi dearies! How's your day? I know it's gloomy and raining outside. The lazy in me just wanted to lay down in bed and sleep all day.  But I want to make a review because some thoughts are swirling on my mind and I want to say it right now. Anyhoo, before I fell in love with All Organics soaps like Calamansi, Papaya with Glutathione and Singkamas, my staple organic soap was Cyleina. I've been a user of Cyleina for 2 years and it's the first brand of organic soap that I love! So today, I'm rekindling my love to their kojic soap which I purchased last week when I saw it at Watson's.

     I know this soap earned a lot of raves from different forums and I'm sure most of you have tried one or two variants. I used to buy Cyleina soaps from re-sellers before and now Watson's sells what I think the most popular variants of their soaps like Black Pearl, Rice Bran, Strawberry, Kojic, Grape Seed and Payaya with Goat's Milk. To know more about Cyleina visit their website here:
     Kojic soap is a powerful anti-oxidant with pure natural whitening agents, this triple action skin whitening soap ensures a clear, smooth even toned complexion. It helps repair existing skin damage, preventing wrinkles that are signs of skin ageing, and improve the overall condition of the skin leaving it more vibrant healthier glow.
     Kojic acid was discovered as a natural product derived from a mushroom in Japan. This is considered a very important ingredient in cosmetics because of its medicinal properties. It has been successfully used to lighten pigment spots and skin discoloration and considered as a popular inhibitor for melanin. At present, it is used in various kinds of cosmetic therapies for pimples, freckles, acne, sunburn, eczema, skin blemishes and other skin problems.

size: 120grams

price: 65php (Around $1.50)

place bought: Watson's Health and Beauty Store, Sm Fairview

instruction for use: Use as bath soap and facial wash, for face and body

ingredients: Saponified Vegetable Oil, Organic Papain Enzyme, Organic Orange Peel Oil, Kojic Acid, Orange Essential Oil

What I like:
  • It's organic!
  • the scent- smells sweet but not overpowering
  • gives a "glow" on skin
  • it lightened some dark spots on my face but it takes a long time
  • affordable
  • easily accessible- now available at Watson's
  • wide selection of soap for different skin needs
What I don't like:
  • melts easily unlike All Organics (same organic soaps which doesn't contain any soap hardener)
  • no batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the box
  • a bit drying on skin
Will I repurchase? Yes! I need to use it again to lighten some marks left by pimples on my face

     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. I really love organic soaps and this kojic acid is one of them. For maximum results, leave the lather for 3 minutes then rinse. Use your favorite lotion or body butter after. Since this organic soaps doesn't contain soap hardener, cut it into pieces so that it will not melt easily.

     Have you tried Cyleina organic soap?Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

Good Times!~
