Product Review: Natura Organics Fruit Bio-Active Complex C- Miracle Body Polish

Saturday, April 05, 2014

     Ah body scrubs! First thing that comes to my mind when someone says exfoliate. There are different types of body scrubs in the market today and I'm sure you're having a hard time looking for the one. I've tried more than 5 brands of body scrubs before and I can say that based on the scrubber used as the main ingredient, you can see really tell which one will agree to your skin. There are salt type body scrubs, paste type with very fine beads, cream type with fruit seeds or fiber as exfoliant and etc, etc. I presume that you all know I'm an avid fan of organic products and I'm still on search for the best or at least better alternative to chemically-harsh skin care products in the market today. As for the body scrubs, I think I haven't found the best in terms of the quality and price but I've discovered one of the cost-effective especially if you're into luxurious body scrubs. I'm a cheapskate that's why even if the product is worth the price, I'm still having thoughts if I'll push through with it or just look for another alternative.

     I think this body polish comes with a hefty price tag compared to the brands that I've tried before but if you'll look closely to the ingredients, the natural ingredients used are of high quality and yes they are expensive too. Take for example the grapeseed fiber used as scrubber, I love eating grapes but whatever season we have the price of this fruit is high compared to other fruits in the market. But if you have the money to splurge a little on a skin care product that contains effective ingredients then I recommend you try this body polish. So without further ado, here's the review of Natura Organics Fruit Bio-Active Complex C-Miracle Body Polish. Click CONTINUE READING to know more about the product.

Product Review: Mischka Derma Secret Green Papaya Body Scrub

Sunday, February 16, 2014

     Hellos! How's your Valentine's Day celebration? I hope ya'll had a blast. My apologies for updating this blog just now. I had a very wonderful week with my family and friends and also received good news from brands that I never thought will become part of this blog. Thank you very much for all the support dearies, without you all the blessings will not be possible. March will be an exciting month for my dear readers. There's a lot of giveaways from my lovely sponsors so keep your eyes glued!

     Let's start the week right with another review :) Summer is fast approaching and this season is one of the worst for me when it comes to taking care of my skin. I have a hate relationship with summer. My skin starts to react badly when the temperature rises. Breakouts here and there and my body starts to sweat a lot! I hate the icky feeling when I sweat a lot. That's why I always make sure to add a product or two to my skin care essentials for that extra squeaky clean feel. This is also the time that I usually skip or apply light lotions to avoid the greasy and heavy feeling on my body. Thanks to body scrubs because some of them doubles as moisturizers and polishes the body from dead skin cells accumulated by the skin from dust and other forms of pollution. I already have my favorite body scrubs but that doesn't stop me from discovering new brands and variants to try. Thank you Mischka Derma Secret for sending your body scrub. The moment I opened the tub, I sensed that the product is very promising. When I scooped a dollop of this scrub in my hand and spread it gently, I said to myself that this can pass as a dupe to my favorite Asian Secrets Lulur Scrub. Excited to see how this scrub has fared with my skin? Click CONTINUE READING to find out!

Product Review: ENVO CALAMANSI + LEMONGRASS Radiant Eclipse Body Scrub

Saturday, June 08, 2013

     Hello dearies, let's continue our mini discussion here about ENVO. If you're a new reader of this blog, click here to know more about ENVO Bath and Body products. I presume you all know that my favorite scrubs are A Bonne Spa White C Salt and Asian Secrets Lulur Body Scrub and been using both alternately for more than 2 years now. I never expected that I will come across with an organic body scrub that will do the job in the exfoliation department. At first I'm very hesitant that it can remove dead skin cells because when I touched the "scrubbers"- apricot kernels, I said to myself that it's very fine and won't be able to exfoliate dirt from my skin. Since my skin is already used to harsh scrubbing (I know it's not good) because I really want to get rid of dirt and to have that uber squeaky clean feeling, small, tiny or fine particles will just slide off my skin. It's like scrubbing with no scrubs at all feeling. (hope you get what I mean) But lo and behold, this product is amazing! Now I need to believe in the saying "don't judge the book by it's cover" particularly with this product. haha!
     Join the fight against dark and damaged skin, with the perfect blend of Calamansi and Lemongrass; you can see nature take effect in no time. Its main purpose is Whitening giving its users that fair light skin they have always wanted. Its main benefits consist of skin lightening, tonic, aromatic, minimizes oil secretion, revitalize and strengthens skin. This body scrub is lotion based so you get lotion plus scrub in one. It has a generous amount of apricot kernels which are used to exfoliate the skin instead of micro beads.

Sample Room Experience + First Haul for 2013

Saturday, January 19, 2013

     Happy weekend guys! We're fortunate that beauty comes in boxes now. I mean we can try beauty, skin care, wellness products and everything in between with these beauty subscription boxes. I presume that you all know these beauty boxes and had subscribe from them depending on your preferences. It boom last year around August if I'm not mistaken but I'm contemplating which box to get. The price ranges from 400-500 php for a month of subscription,  you'll get different variety of beauty and skin care items, some are samples while others are full-sized ones. 

     I've joined the club now! Finally got my first beauty product sample from Sample Room. I will not get into full details of SR since beauty bloggers already discussed everything on their blogs. I will just share my experience and how considerate they were because my first transaction from them was cancelled and it's my fault. I'm lucky that they'll going to return the first 70 points that I used and wasn't able to pay the shipping on time and totally forgot my order. I used my remaining points to purchase this...
My order comes in this eco friendly paper bag, sealed with SR sticker :)
     This is what I ordered from the remaining points that I have. I have read all the reviews from SR that's why I'm convinced that Gluta-C is effective in terms of lighten dark marks and spots. I'm not sure if I'll use this on my underarm, I'm planning to use a little of this on my freckles and I hope this will work there too.
Gluta-C Skin Whitening Gel- FULL SIZE 20ml
Only 25 points for this one, not bad eh?
     So now to my haul, basically these are products that I already use everyday. Nothing new except the Nichido Mineral Concealer that I will use as an eyeliner for my waterlines and the HBC Keratin Hot Oil Treatment that was always OOS. I was intrigued months ago why among the DIY hair care treatments from HBC this is always OOS. Now I can try this and see what's the rave about :) I also bought this top from a shop near our subdivision selling factory priced clothing from Lee and Jag. Got this for 50& off the tag! But it's to tight for me, I need to lose weight before I can wear this confidently.  The Tony Moly 7 Day Eyebrow Tattoo is the bomb!!! I will muse everything about it on my next post. I really LOVE LOVE it!!! It's the cheaper version of K-Palette (I guess) :D

     And by the way, the cutie bottle cap earrings was a gift from le sister on my birthday. She said she won in a giveaway and this was her prize from Hodge Podge. She's very shy to use this because of the word blogger written on it. Thank you so much Krystal! I'm also shy to wear this even if this is the craft that I love doing. I don't want others to misinterpret me wearing those earrings. But if I'm with blogger friends, I'll wear it because I'm sure they'll understand me 100%

     That's all for now. Drop a comment below if you have tried these products before. Have a great weekend ahead!

Good Times!~

November and December Hauls

Monday, December 31, 2012

     Before the year ends, I would like to squeeze in pending posts from my November and December haul. Since I'm on a tipid mode, I only bought few products for the last two months. Some products here are my HG's while some were purchased just to try if they're worth of my tight budget. 

     Before the Glorietta Vibe fashion show walk, I decided to buy a makeup remover wipes that can melt waterproof mascara without using an eye makeup remover. I think it's more convenient than bringing a bottle of eye makeup remover and cotton balls during the event. I also bought this foot socks and nail polish remover wipes for my feet. The Mondes Ionic Keratin hair treatment was purchased out of curiosity. I'm not happy with the product, I develop pimples and wound like itchy flakes on my scalp. I guess I'm allergic to one of its ingredient but I don't know what to pinpoint :(

Tony Moly Floria Cleansing Tissues

Wish Nail Polish Remover
     I also bought a back up of my favorite makeup remover wipes- Purederm  just in case my skin will react to Tony Moly Floria makeup remover wipes. This soap was given by my SIL when I visited my parents house. I was surprise when I read the label that it's manufactured by Splash- a local company selling beauty and bath products. But this was only sold through their direct-selling line like that of AVON. So now Splash is also making it's way on direct-selling, let's wait and see if they'll make noise this 2013. You know how I love Asian Secrets, and based on my experience this body scrub already replaced my first love on Abonne. I find this more convenient to use and doesn't hurt my skin if I use the scrub everyday!

     My last haul for this year came from Snoe. Yay for new variants: Licorice and Organic Papaya :) I bought these two from a BOGO sale at Cinderella. The SA their informed me that they're having a sale so I grabbed the opportunity. I already reached my third month of using the black bleaching soap so I need to rest my skin from bleaching and use a milder one. When Ms. Jen of Snoe suggested the Special Kojic and Glutathione combo as a substitute for black bleaching I followed her and loving the results! 

     My sister just gave me this toner to try. At first I was hesitant because I find this toner too strong for my thin skin. But Janet's review of Eskinol convinced me to try this product. Let's see if this product will fare good on my skin.
