     Have you heard about the latest skincare craze in Korea? If you're a fan of K beauty, I presume that you know what I'm talking about- glass skin. Koreans are going cray cray to have a glass skin and in order to achieve that, investment in the right products is a must even if it's expensive plus the fact that they have a nice weather, right?

     I'm not against glass skin. Who doesn't want a youthful and glowing skin, so smooth and radiant like a glass? Of course, I want that but I'm having second thoughts if this is achievable by using their suggested products because one thing is for sure- it's not compatible with our hot and humid weather. But hey, ladies of the tropics are still lucky because there are skin care products that can make skin radiant and fresh. Enter Goodal Green Tangerine- a skin care line perfect for summer!

Product Review: Goodal Keratina Anti-Aging Double Serum Light

Monday, December 04, 2017

     Taking care of aging skin is not a walk in the park. You have to address different skin care issues in the aging department. Think of wrinkles, premature wrinkles, uneven skin tone, rough and dry texture, sagging skin, sunspots, melasma, and others that need to be taken care of seriously.

     I started incorporating anti-aging products into my skin care routine in my early 30's. I've tried a handful of products from cleansers, moisturizers, serums, masks, and eye creams from the local and international brand and I can say that the more religious I apply these products, the more I see the effects. When it comes to hydrating the skin, I only use either moisturizing gel or serum. My current fave is Goodal Keratina Anti-Aging Double Serum Light which I'll be reviewing below :)

     Did you know that petroleum jelly has many uses? When I was in grade school, I always see a tub of petroleum jelly in my mom's vanity table. I'm not interested to know that time that's why I just ignore the tub and never dare asked her what's it for.

     Fast forward when I was in high school, I had a sunburn that's so annoying because it is so painful and itchy. Mom handed me a tub of petroleum jelly and told me to apply the jelly in the affected area to lessen the pain. After that, my sunburn healed and I became curious on other uses of petroleum jelly. Last week, I received tubs of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in a blue box that says 101. Intrigued? Click read more and discover different ways to use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly below :)

Product Review: Fracora WHITE'st Placenta Serum

Wednesday, September 07, 2016

     Hello dearies! Sharing with you another review of my recent skin care product. I received a bottle of Fracora WHITE'st Placenta Serum months ago from Cheska's Store Online but did not use it right away because I'm still road testing a moisturizer from a start-up brand. I was intrigued with this serum when I read the description because it says made from 100% concentrated undiluted placenta extract. So basically it's really pure and water like when I peek inside the small bottle.

     I almost cringe in my seat to find out that a 30 ml bottle costs Php 2,200. Is this the miracle skin care product that we are looking for? Knowing Japanese standards, they will produce products that are effective even if some are not budget-friendly. To feed my curiosity and to know if this product is worth the price tag, I road-tested it for more than a month by applying the serum religiously day and night. The verdict? See my honest to goodness thoughts below :)

Fracora Whitest Placenta Extract Serum (description taken from Cheskas Store Online)
  • Contains 100% concentrated undiluted pure placenta essence. 
  • Placenta Serum is a type of skin treatment product normally made from sheep placenta which is normally applied topically as a skin restorative.

Use the dropper to get the product. Be careful not to spill a drop or two. There's a line in the dropper as you can see in the photo above. I always pump until it reaches that line and apply what I got on my entire face.
Product Review: Fracora WHITE'st Placenta Serum
I don't have perfect skin. I have large pores cheek and nose area plus my Hori's Nevus 
What I like:
  • It's package in a small bottle which is very handy and travel-friendly. 
  • Fracora White'st Placenta Serum is made from 100% undiluted placenta so it's pure. 
  • The texture- very light because it's like that of water. 
  • This water-type serum is easily absorbed once applied. 
  • Non-greasy. Not sticky. 
  • The glow is really obvious in the morning after waking up. 
  • Made my skin soft and smooth to touch. 
  • It made my face brighter or should I say lighter and less oily. 
  • Batch and manufacturing date printed at the bottom of the packaging. 
  • Free from paraben, fragrance, and mineral oil.

What I don't like:
  • The scent- there's a weird scent. A bit fishy for my sensitive nose but I can tolerate it as long as I will not inhale during application. 
  • Since the texture is watery, it runs out fast. I always try not to spill a drop or two of this precious serum. 
  • Expensive especially for budget conscious individuals or those who have tight budget. 
  • Available online.

Will I repurchase?: Maybe.

      I give this product a 4/5 rating. This serum is one of the best skin care products that I have tried to date but it's soo pricey. No breakouts, irritations, or whatsoever because the texture is watery. Still contemplating if I will buy another bottle since I find it so quick to run out. You can see in the photo above that I still have large pores and my Hori's Nevus is till there but lighter based on my observation.

     I will recommend this product if you have the budget to splurge and you have sensitive skin. Since the product is made only of three ingredients, I guess the percentage of breakouts and other skin reactions will be low.
