     I was in high school, I often hear my mom talking to my titas who live abroad about makeup brands that are not available locally. Two of my aunts work at Macy's that's why if there's a new shade of lipstick from my mom's favorite brand, she will just tell it to them but it will take a year before the balikbayan boxes will arrive at our doorsteps.

     To cut a long story short, it's hard to buy makeup from brands that are exclusively available abroad but now, hoarding buying is a breeze because all the coveted brands from different parts of the world are exclusively available at SM World of Beauty! Let me share with you some of my fave brands from around the world below :)

Sample Room Products for September + Haul

Sunday, September 22, 2013

     Ten days to go and hello October! Before the month ends, I would like to share another mini haul for the month of September. If you're a long time reader of this blog, I'm sure you've seen these products on my past haul posts.  I hope you'll not get bored of this same old skin care products haul. Good news is, I got new products from Sample Room! Already a member of Sample Room but having a hard time getting samples? Fret not because we have the same fate. Haha! My ninja moves doesn't work all the time hence the products that I'm eyeing always get OOS whenever I logged into my Sample Room account. I believe that Patience is a Virtue so when I saw Sample Room partner bloggers announced on their social media accounts that there will be a restocked of products, I patiently waited and tadah~ I got what I really want to get from their samples this month. 

     Yay for a full-sized tube of Colour Collection BB cream! Thank you very much Sample Room for spoiling us- your roomates with promising skin care and makeup brands both coming from local and international names. I'm currently road-testing this bb cream and as of the moment my initial thoughts are mostly positive. Can't wait to make my detailed review and share it to you my dear readers :) Click CONTINUE to see the rest of my Sample Room haul!

Product Review: VMV Hypoallergenics Essence Skin-Saving Antiperspirant

Friday, August 10, 2012

     Hi Manila, Mr. Golden sun is rising up in the sky again. I'm sure new things will come our way. New hope and a brighter day awaits us. Smile everyone, we can make it! So now this post is super long overdue. Actually I want to say finally after sixteen months, that's almost a year and a half I will reveal what keeps me from the yucky icky feel. Prolly you know what I mean because the title of this post says it all. Yes, I'm going to share my thoughts about the best among the bestest underarm care that I've used so far. But before you make any reactions and raise your eyebrows or cover your nose ha ha ha! I will tell you that being sweaty runs in the family. It's in our genes. My father sweats a lot but this is not considered excessive. I guess it's because he drink lots of water and a little move specially during summer makes him sweat faster than others.  This goes same with my brothers and sisters including me. It's the same reason why sometimes I hate summer. Since we sweat a lot, we need extra protection not only in our face because sweat also leads to pimple infection but with our underarms too. 

     Sweaty underarms? No way! I had some embarrassing moments during my high school days where I'm very active with school activities. I'm also a volleyball player so it's really normal for me that I sweat a lot during and after the game. I hate it when the arms of my clothes feels wet. There were also times that you can really see that it's wet specially with colored blouses and shirts. So there comes awkward and embarrassing moment. Let me also emphasize that sweaty underarms doesn't mean there's an unpleasant smell. But if you ignored it, doesn't have proper hygiene (e.g. takes bath every other day) and just use an antiperspirant then I guess worse things will happen. 

     I've tried so many antiperspirants and deodorants in the market before. From cheap to cost-effective ones. I also got tired of trying and testing new brands but a couple of years ago I decided to buy something pricier, something heavy duty to avoid irritation and darkening of my underarms and sometimes chicken skin. I've tried Godiva underarm whitening antiperspirant, Jao Ming underarm all in one underarm cream and Flawless Deo Whitening Antiperspirant. I can say they're all effective but the effect plateaud after I emptied two or three bottles. I searched through different forums and I'm glad that I've found VMV Hypoallergenics Essence Skin Saving Antiperspirant that I really looooooveeeeeee! This is my second bottle and up to now I say it's ahh-mazing after every spray :D

NOTES fr VMV website:  Due to high concentration of drying crystals, spray may plug up- remove + rinse under warm running water. Before using any product, test a tiny amount of it on skin (we omit allergens, but you may be sensitive to an ingredient that isn't an allergen). Introduce new products one at a time, with at least 3 days in between to make sure you are not allergic. Do not store in extreme temperatures, or in direct sunlight. Do not (re)introduce removed portions of product, water or other substances into product. As with all things skin, consult your dermatologist.Important: Ask a doctor before use if you have a kidney disease. For external use only on specified areas as directed. Stop use + consult your doctor in the unlikely event of discomfort or sensitivity. If contact with eyes occurs, flush out with plenty of water. Keep out of reach of children. While safe for its intended use, ingesting large amounts of this product - as unattended children may do - is potentially harmful. If this happens, get medical help right away.

Good Times!~

My Recent Hair and Skin Care Haul

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

     Here's another haul post guys. Actually the first photo was purchased two weeks ago while the latter was bought yesterday. One of hubby's rest day is reserve for grocery and mini shopping day. We usually buy Kenzo's stuff at Sm Supermarket but this time we decided to go at Trinoma. I always enjoy our grocery time because Kenzo loves riding the push cart. When I saw those cute push carts at The Landmark grocery, I'm very excited for my son. So when we went their to buy our grocery, Kenzo's very eager to ride the push carts with kiddie ride thingy. 

     So here's what I bought two weeks ago: My second bottle of VMV Hypoallergenics Skin-Saving Antiperspirant Spray. Would you believe that my first bottle lasted for a year? I'm really in love with this product. I sweat a lot because it runs in the family. We have active sweat glands and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. I'm glad that I discovered this skin care line from VMV and will post my review soon. The price is a bit steep for an antiperspirant but one things for sure, it will really make you feel comfortable! I also bought the Pure Beauty Treatment Conditioner. I read somewhere that this hair treatment line from Pure Beauty is somehow a dupe of Shiseido's Pure Tsubaki Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner. I already made a review on Pure Beauty Treatment Shampoo and I love how it made my color treated hair smooth and shiny. 
VMV Skin Saving Antiperspirant from- 420php to 380 php
Pure Beauty Treatment Conditioner with Camellia Seed Oil- 249.75
     And here's what I got yesterday: Asian Secrets Lulur Body Scrub in Licorice and Mulberry Leaf Extract which I really love! I think it's my 5th or 6th tub now? I just, just love using this scrub. Then I purchased only one soap from All Organics- Calamansi which I really miss since I'm fond of using Snoe soaps lately but this doesn't mean that I totally forgot this brand. This is my first HG organic soap and will always have a very big place in my heart :)))

     Reviews will be posted soon :D I need to make sure I use the product before making a review so please bear with me if it takes me weeks or months on sharing my thoughts. So that's all for now. Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you enjoyed my haul post. Have a great ahead!

Good Times!~
