Skin Care Essential Haul + Bazaar

Friday, November 23, 2012

     Hi dearies! I just want to share things I accumulated from my "tipid mode"/ beauty on a budget shopping and an unexpected purchases from the Bazaar for All Season last November 4 (Sunday) with le hubby and my parents. 

     This mini haul is always on my list whenever I go shopping for my skin care essentials because all of them are my HG's. I forgot how many times I bought these products except the Quick FX which was my second sachet. If you wanna know why these products tops my list and why I considered them my skin's best-bestest friend read my reviews here ^_^
     I wanted to support my favorite fashion bloggers that's why I decided to drop by at the Bazaar for All Season last November 4 and that's a Sunday. Shopping wasn't a plan at all until my parents got delighted with the mark down prices of shoes and clothes. Even though we only have an hour to window shop, they managed to buy something that's worth every peso :D Surprisingly, the hubby gave his signal for me to shop ^_^ but there was a limit to my budget and this were all I got.

Product Review: Soft White Body Scrub Lulur Mandi in Bengkoang

Saturday, July 21, 2012

     Hi! I'm back (hopefully) to normal programming :D I want to make a review or an update here everyday maybe 2 to 3 post, whatchatink? Hehehe! But I can't promise you that because I still have mommy duties and my son always watch Cars toy reviews on you tube. If I have all the time in my hands, I will really make more reviews daily. I hope I can maintain one post everyday so that I can still have time commenting on other blogs that I follow. Sometimes, watermarking pictures and editing post takes all of my time and then I left my post unpublished. So on to the review. If you read my post about the allergies that's very annoying and itchy, you will see on the last part of that post this Soft White scrub. My sister gave it to me to test if it's on par with Asian Secrets that I really love. When my allergy has subside, I decided to use the scrub every other day to see the maximum result. I know one tub is not enough compared to nth tubs of Asian Secrets that I emptied but still I saw a bit of difference. 

     What I also like bout this scrub is the Olive oil because of it's moisturizing properties. I'm a fan of whitening soaps that leaves my skin dry so I need the help of moisturizers. The only downside of this product is it's contents. If you already tried Asian Secrets, you will surely notice upon opening the tub is the heaping scrub. With Soft White, the scrub is only 3/4 of the tub. Now here's my take on Soft White body scrub.

The color and texture is the same as Asian Secrets and Purbasari 
but SoftWhite has nude beads for this variant.

After 3 uses, I emptied the tube in less than a week. 

What I like:
  • The price! I know this is same as the small tub of Asian Secrets and Purbasari.
  • Exfoliates really well, I think it's because of the  beads.
  • Has Olive oil that is known for its moisturizing properties.
  • It somehow helped my allergy marks lighten a bit. 
  • The scent is okay, a bit comparable to baby powder.
  • Manufacturing, batch and expiry date printed on the tub.
  • Sealed upon opening.
  • Makes my skin smooth and glowing.
What I don't like:
  • The contents, it's not full like Asian Secrets so I emptied the whole tub after 4 uses. I use it  every other day.
Will I repurchase? Yes! It's a great substitute for Asian Secrets Mulberry and Licorice (violet) that's always OOS! 

     I give this a 4/5 rating. This scrub will be my alternative if Asian Secrets is OOS again. To avoid contamination use a spatula in scooping out the product. For maximum results you can leave it on your skin for 5-10 mins and as instructed use it everyday. I had a review of SoftWhite  Pink Variant before and I just use that twice a week. With this variant, I wanted to see faster results that's why I brave myself to use it every other day even if my skin is a bit sensitive because of the allergy. 

     Have you experience lulur scrubs before?Share your thoughts. Stay safe everyone!

Good Times!~

Love Package + Hate Situation

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

     Hello lovelies, how are you? Don't forget to join my 100th Follower Giveaway. I will just make a quick post. I'm still experiencing this freaky skin allergy/insect bites thing-y for days now. I don't know what to do! I've taken lots of anti-histamine and applied anti-itch creams and ointment but none seems to work. The last option I think I need to do before things get worse is consult a doctor. This thing is really freaking me out. It's like my worst nightmare. I can't sleep and my mind seems empty. My concentration level is down and I get irritated most of the time. I hope this thing will just go away without a mark. I'm afraid that I scratched some part of my body unconsciously and this will lead to scarring. Gaaah! But before ending this post, I will just share what I received last week. I won from another giveaway and this time it's from a fashion blog. I soooo lurve these stuffs and thinking of doing another outfit post soon. 


Thank you Ms. Aisa and Romwe for this wonderful giveaway! Will post photos soon :D

     My sister also gave me a tub of Soft White Body Scrub in Bengkoang. She wanted me to try it first. Will make a review after a week. I can't use this right now because of this allergies/insect bites spreading all over my body.

      I will end my post here guys. I hope you will visit my blog often, read my reviews and join my giveaway. 

     Good Times!~

     As promised, I will continue my post today. Sorry for leaving incomplete deets about what I received recently. If you'll notice, I already placed the Bloglovin' badge on my sidebar. So follow this blog with Bloglovin'

     Anyhoo, most of the items were given by my youngest sister. I'm the eldest among my six siblings, two brothers and three sisters. I know it's weird that she's the one sending me gifts, she's  really sweet and caring that's why I made this post to show that I really appreciated her kindness. 

1. DEOMAX All- Around Deodorizer in Citrus (Orange) and Fresh Linen Scent (Pink)
4. Unbranded Hair Bun Maker
5. Unbranded Cologne/Perfume Atomizer
6. Multi-colored Earring

      Excited much for this gifts! Will blog everything later. I feel sleepy now. Laterzzz! Will make a review on San San eyeliner this coming weekend. I will also use the earrings on my upcoming OOTD if the situation permits. I want to update my blog now but my son keeps on bugging me. We're sharing one laptop all the time. He's watching Little Einsteins on Youtube while I'm reading posts and editing reviews that's why there are times you'll see typo error on my entry. Hope you'll understand. Have a great day ahead! 

Good Times!~

HG's Haulin'

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

     I've been very busy last two weeks because my father underwent cataract operation and I'm the one responsible getting his laboratory results and cardio-pulmonary clearance. I'm also sleep deprived so my skin is acting up lately and I ran out some of my skin and hair care essentials that's why I need to replenish my stocks. So here's what I got from recent trips to Trinoma where I usually take MRT and purchased my haul.
     That's it for now, I'll post my review on Color Me Happy soon. Been thinking of coloring my hair again because the roots are starting to show now. I'm torn between Kao Prettia in Chiffon Beige or Kao Prettia Platinum Beige. I want my hair really light this time bordering from light brown to blonde. Any suggestions? Thanks for sharing!

Good Times!
