Product Review: Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder

Sunday, August 05, 2012

     I have a love and hate relationship with the weather lately. I love it because it made me and my son sleep better while the non-stop rain prevents me from doing errands outside the house. I don't like getting wet. Besides I really need to keep my self dry all the time so that I will not catch cough and colds. It's sick to be sick! Today I wanna share with you another review on skin care product that my sister gave me weeks ago. If you remember my post about Just sharing you'll see something that's use by babies and ladies with sensitive skin- baby powder. When I received this product from my sister I thought that this baby powder was for my son. She said that I have to try and make review of the product. I asked why and she just said that it can be a finishing powder for sensitive skin and for those who likes something natural/organic. I got intrigue with what she said so I decided to try this rice baby powder.

     I don't use finishing powder ever since. With bb cream and powder foundation, eyebrow powder, eyeliner and sometimes mascara plus lip balm or gloss then I'm good to go. I love the finish of my HG powder foundation but sometimes I really want something light for my skin. I also want to feel good about my skin that's why I'm putting less makeup these days. 

     Going back to the product, I know some ladies using Pigeon baby powder as their setting powder. I also read about Youngblood rice setting powder way way back but the price for me is a bit steep. So after reading the tiny leaflet about Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder, I was excited to try it out, it's also natural and organic so my sensitive skin has nothing to worry about.

Why is Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder a better choice?
  • Rice starch is often used as one of the ingredients in infant formula.
  • Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder is especially formulated using advanced technology which helps in repelling moisture and keeps the skin dry from perspiration.
  • Rice starch is biodegradable which makes it harmless even if inhaled unintentionally.
  • Rice starch contains natural proteins and amino acids that are essential building blocks for the skin.
  • Rice starch is clinically- proven hypoallergenic. Its soothing and softening qualities has been recommended by dermatologist for years.

Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder
This product is suitable for babies but I'm doing this review to test it on my skin. As you can see, I use my unbranded kabuki brush from landmark.

size: 50g (1.76 oz)

price: free (99.75 php Around $2.30+)

place bought: free (The Landmark Trinoma, Infant section)

instructions for use: Use a small amount, lightly sprinkle and smoothen out on baby's delicate skin.

I use this alone or as setting powder after bb cream.

ingredients: Rice Starch and Mild Fragrance

MY BARE FACE (get ready to see the ugliness)

Bare Face: Excuse the freckles, oilies, panda eyes and other imperfections.

Used the powder ALONE: No concealer and moisturizer that's why you'll see some dryness on my nose, there's a bit of white cast but it's only the flash of my camera and from natural UV ingredient.

What I like:
  • It's natural and organic!
  • Talc-free and biodegradable.
  • The price is really affordable.
  • Keeps the oilies at bay.
  • There's a bit of powdery scent.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • No irritations or breakouts or whatsoever.
  • There's manufacturing and expiry date.
What I don't like:
  • Loose powder- a bit messy to apply.
  • You have to transfer the product in a sifter if you intend to use this as your setting powder.
  • There's a white cast because the protein and amino acids present in the product is a natural UV protection. We all know that UV products/ spfs can cause white cast on flash photography.
Will I repurchase? Yes! I'll also buy one for my son. I tried it on his back and it can really control the sweat.

     I give this a 4/5 rating. I like this product because it's natural/organic and I can share this with my son. But I'm still on the look for the real setting powder since I always use bb cream and I hate the white cast that it gives on photos. 

     What's your favorite setting powder?Any recommendations?Thanks for sharing!

Good Times!~

     O-M-G! It's end of season sale once again. I know it's crazy! I'm planning to lift my no buy mode (parang coding lang =P) hehehe! but here's my bipolar personality again. I would love to shop new clothes and shoes since the last time I bought a pair of flats was months ago. But I'm worried that I will regret buying those stuffs. It's weird, I know! I'm also confused what brand to buy. Most stylish items are on sale so this will make me go nuts! Even if I already made my shopping list that I restricted only to three items (THREE ONLY) I'm sure that I will ignore it most specially if the items that caught my eye is 70% off the tag. I'm an impulse buyer before. I hope I can resists the power of temptation. So before I go on bargain hunting later, I want to share this post so you know what to expect on my next reviews. 

     Please bear with me for the long introduction. If you can still remember my post about being lucky on giveaways, well thanks to my lucky charm because I also won from other giveaways that I joined. This GC is for my son Kenzo and the hubby who loves eating chicken and burger :D and oh, coffee float is enough for me.

     My sister-in-law gave me this new product from AVON to review. She said this new hair treatment is on a special introductory price that's why she wanted me to give it a try. The hair treatment costs 199php. It's a steal because the shampoo is free.

     This loot came from my sister. It's a way of saying thank you from asking a very important favor. She also saw this Tiny Buds baby powder at The Landmark baby section. At first I thought its for Kenzo but she told me to try it as finishing powder. When I read that it's made of real rice grains, I doubt it on keeping oilies at bay. But I have to road test it first, who knows this can be an HG material.
     I will end my post here dearies! My allergies are still there but not as itchy as day 1 and 2. I'm just worried that it will leave marks. I accidentally scratched them while sleeping :(  So to those who are going to spend their day shopping, take care and relax! Enjoy your day.

Good Times!~
