Korean skin care

Watsons K-Beauty Launch

Sunday, January 22, 2017

     It's a no brainer that most of Korean women have beautiful skin. It's a mixture of genes, climate, and tons of skin care products they apply religiously everyday. Have you heard of their 10-step skin care routine? It's crazy and tedious but if that's the road to young and glowing skin then let's give it a shot!

     It’s no longer a surprise to find more Filipinas becoming infatuated and obsessed with Korean beauty habits – face masks, ampoules, essence, etc. It’s fun, it’s never too serious, and you’ll definitely enjoy the quirky products that aren’t only cute, but work, too! Wondering why most of the Korean actresses have dewy complexion and ever glowing look – well, fret no more as Watsons can help you channel your inner Koreanovela dream with it’s new Get It K-Beauty section! See some of the exclusive line-up of K Beauty products that will make your skin healthy and glowing below :)

Product Review: Mamonde Rose Water Toner

Thursday, January 05, 2017

     Hello dearies! I want to share with you my thoughts on my current fave toner- Mamonde Rose Toner that I bought last year from Althea Korea. At first I was hesitant to try the product because of the price and thinking that it will just go to waste if my skin will react negatively to it. On the other hand, there's a whispering voice telling me to try it because it's rose water- and skin care products with rose extracts are known to give a moisturizing and calming effect on the skin.

     I made a research online and it looks like that only a few made a review of this product. After finishing a bottle, I'm proud to say that I experienced little to no breakouts. This is also the mildest toner that I've tried to date. So without further ado, here's my thoughts on Mamonde Rose Toner.

Cathy Doll Philippines Grand Launch

Monday, June 06, 2016

     Hello dearies! Last May 12, I was invited to the grand launch of Cathy Doll Philippines at Crowne Plaza with other beauty bloggers/vloggers who were so excited to see the wide array of cosmetic line this Thai favorite brand has to offer. If my memory serves me right, I've seen a few Cathy Doll products sold online and I was eyeing on their bb creams because of good reviews. I also saw different skin care products but I had a had time availing them because I have to wait for the products to arrive since it will come all the way from Korea.

     Looks like the angels in heaven have heard the wishes of Cathy Doll fanatics because our friends from Karmart brought not only one or two Cathy Doll products, but the entire line of makeup, skin care, and personal effects line. I'm so excited to share with you some of their products or my haul that day.
