     Did you know that as early as 25, one can start their anti-aging skin care regimen? I just discovered this when I'm already 30 years old. I'm not sure if I'm already late because I just incorporated those anti-aging moisturizers and eye creams two years ago in my skin care routine. Since we live in a tropical climate, we are often expose to sun when we go outside the house. Sun exposure can lead to skin damage and premature aging. Visible signs include age spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. The damage is usually irreversible or may require expensive medical treatments to correct.

     Now, you can combat sun damage and bring back the youthful glow of your skin with the fast-acting solution from Helix-D. A scientific breakthrough in skincare, Helix-D surpasses all current anti-aging products in the market, combining potent ingredients and patented technologies to provide amazing results once thought impossible from an over-the-counter product. Let's discover more about the product below :)

  • With its advanced formula, Helix-D works to rejuvenate your skin from the very first application and builds stronger action each time you use it. 

     We cannot hide from the damaging rays of the sun but we can combat those pesky effects of damaging sun rays. Aside from using sunblock and sunscreen, using umbrella, wearing sunglasses, caps, bonnets, and other things that will protect our skin from UVA/UVB rays will do. Most importantly, using skin care products that is suitable for reversing the signs of aging is highly recommended. I'll try this product soonest and update you if it's a yay or a nay.

     I hope this products works for me. With the hefty price tag, I have high hopes with Helix-D because most of the effective eye serums in the market today are in this price range.

Do you use eye creams and eye serum?

Good Times!~

Product Review: Be Organic Emu Skin Perfecting Cream

Thursday, October 17, 2013

     Hello dearies! I'm very excited to share my review today because it's another first :) It's my first organic/natural face cream to date :) I'm a long time user of GNC Vitamin C Moisturizing cream and consumed more than five tubs already. And because I'm slowly incorporating organic products to my body and hair care essentials, I think now is the right time to have one for the face. 

     Remember my post about my discover of a new brand of organic soap that I've posted months ago? I mused my story there when I first saw the brand Be Organic. Aside from the soaps, this EMU Skin Perfecting cream caught my attention. I asked the SA about this cream and she said that it's a new product from Be Organic and explained to me that it's packed with vitamins and natural skin perfecting ingredients. Sounds very pleasing to the ears and kudos to the SA who knew what she really sells. Back to my story, I was tempted to buy a tub that time but I just brought an exact amount of money that day. So I said to myself that I'll come back for this cream on my next visit to SESOU store whether it's at Trinoma or Robinson's Galleria branch. But this lemming or wish came true when Ms. Cheryl of Be Organic Bath and Body sent me samples of their products. I'm really not expecting that she included a full-sized EMU Skin Perfecting Cream when I received my package. All I know is that she will just send me soaps because it was the only thing that I've mentioned on my previous post about my review on the Papaya Kojic soap. It's very heart warming when you're not expecting to receive products beyond your expectations. Don't get me wrong but I'm really overwhelmed with the products she sent me. 

     Are you familiar with Emu oil? Have you heard this miraculous product that came from the Emu bird? Click CONTINUE READING to know more information about the benefits and of course about this cream.

Product Review: Nature Republic Watery Sun Cream 30 PA++

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

     Hello ladies, happy Monday! Start your week right by smiling and think of positive things coming your way :D Today I'm going to share an important addition to my skin care routine. I'm guilty of neglecting this ever since I became aware on the importance of basic skin care. I always skip sunblock. I have this notion before that sunblock is only used during summer and when you're going to the beach. I also have sensitive nose that I dislike the scent of most sunblock being sold in the market before. The only brand that I knew was Coppertone and Banana Boat. Silly me! The effects of UVA/UVB is now taking its toll on me. Tiny dark spots or freckles are visible on my cheeks. But I'm still lazy putting sunblock on my face. When bb creams came out, I'm relieved because it's all-in-one. Tinted moisturizer + sunblock + whitening + anti-aging, it's like a miracle in a bottle. So I rely on bb creams for sun protection. 

     When I read a post that spf on a bb cream is not enough to shield the skin from damaging sun rays, I decided to include sunblock on my skin care regimen. There's so many different brand of sunblock in the market today. The higher the spf, the better in shielding your skin from the damaging UV rays. My current sunblock contains only spf30 that I think is good for me since I'm always indoors. This sunblock is also a part of the birthday blog sale giveaway that I won so it's only half of the tube when I received it. I considered this as my first sunblock since I'm using this everyday :D

Nature Republic Watery Sun Cream 30 PA++
Simple packaging, tube type

I like this nozzle type because you can control the amount of product coming out of the tube.

This white cream has a medium like consistency. Swatch under different lightning

Nature Republic Watery Sun Cream 30 PA++
Blended on my hand, you can see there's a white cast. I had a hard time taking photo with flash on because it's too reflective.

What I like:
  • The scent is nice. It's not overpowering like Coppertone and Banana Boat.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Water-proof.
  • Applies velvety smooth and has a bit of glittery effect that's not noticeable
  • Doesn't break me out, no allergic reactions whatsoever.
  • Doesn't make my skin oily.
What I don't like:
  • Has only spf 30. ( I searched the internet and saw that this variant has spf 50 too)
  • There' a white cast even though it has low spf content.
  • Since I bought it pre-loved, I don't know the product information.

Will I repurchase? No. I want to try western brands like Neutrogena and Nivea.

     I give this a 3/5 rating. I'm happy with this purchase at least I got to try a sunscreen on its own. Now is the time to hunt for my HG sunblock, since this is important to prevent aging skin and cancer I will consider buying even those expensive ones.

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

Good Times!~
