MoringaO2 Malunggay Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil | Oil Healthy!

15 Nov

I am such a believer of Malunggay because of the benefits it gives. I am a lactating mother who takes 1-2 capsules of Malunggay Life Oil to aid in helping my body produce more milk. In lieu with that, I am beginning to see the value of having moringa in the products I use.

One moringa product I love is the moisturizer from the same company as this herbal therapy oil I’m about to review — MoringaO2. I saw their event in Instagram and found out that there is a new product to be added to the malunggay family — MoringaO2 Malunggay Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil. This is a bit mouthful and it explicitly says what this is for. And when I saw it in Mercury Drug almost a week after that, I helped myself to one.

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Facial Day Cream With SPF 25 | An Essential Daily Moisturizer

9 Sep

I wanted to join the Sample Room and Gluta-C contest but I guess it’s now too late. Nevertheless, I really like this product I got from Sample Room and couldn’t help myself but include a review about it even after the contest and the winner had been announced.

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Facial Day Cream With SPF 25 is another Gluta-C product that is full sized which I got to experience when I slept over my mom’s house. She got this sample from Sample Room and since I stayed there for almost a month and I did not have any skincare product with me, I used it when I was there.

Human Nature 100% Natural Body Butter Cream in Berry Bliss | Oh so Yummy for my Body!

31 Jul

It has been raining most days this July and I find myself grabbing this every night. What makes me want to use it is its very thick and creamy consistency. I think that my skin feels dehydrated whenever its cold and to keep it from feeling that way, I have to use something thicker than what I usually apply.

Here comes another product from a company I truly love — Human Nature!

Human Nature 100% Natural Body Butter Cream

Product Description

Have you always stayed away from butter and cream because they’re so sinful? Indulge in rich, buttery cream without the guilt. Made with a fusion of nature’s best, ultra-succulent and potent ingredients, our antioxidant packed, deeply moisturizing Body Butter Cream will transform your thirsty, dry skin into velvety soft, supple skin. And because our Natural Care Labs made sure it’s 100% Natural with 0% calories, luxurious indulgence can now be guilt-free.

Did you know:

Most if not all available body butters and creams in the market right now use synthetic feel modifiers.

Feel modifiers is a term used for petroleum by-product ingredients usually ending in “-one” likesilicone and dimethicone. These sit in a layer on top of your skin keeping the moisture in but at the same time, clogging your pores and trapping in sebum, dirt, and bacteria. It’s like applying a layer of plastic wrap all over your body, suffocating it, and not allowing your skin to breathe. What’s even more disturbing is that according to www.ewg.org, there is insufficient toxicity data to know if dimethicone and silicone are safe for use in personal care products. So why use them at all?

Our Body Butter Cream contains none of these modifiers. Instead, we use premium all-natural plant oils to give your skin the deep moisturization it needs.

Céleteque Dermoscience Brightening Multi-benefit BB Cream | BB Cream with Benefits

11 Jul

I’ve seen this before in watsons and I swatched it. I didn’t get it then because it has a pink undertone. I have a yellow to neutral undertone so I thought it wouldn’t suit me well. Thankfully, I saw this in Sampleroom and got myself a sample.

Complete Information on the box

It has this plastic squeeze type tube that has a very small hole which dispenses enough product. It also locks it in place so no product will be wasted and spilled.

Nivea Baby Smoothy Cream | Hope in a Tub

28 Jun

My little girl has gotten a lot of insect bites on her legs this past month. I think it is the carpet that is to blame. Foam mites exist even if we clean it daily.

I don’t put bug spray on her skin all the time, I only do when we’re out. I know I have to do this more often from now on. There are no recent bites now but I am just worried of the marks the bites left her with.

To remedy the bites, I apply Human Nature Baby Oil stat! [review for this soon!] It does its job well but it sort of leaves an obvious black mark on her skin and it is such an eye sore for me!

So last week, I got her the Nivea Baby Smoothy Cream.

Nivea Baby Smoothy Cream

Product Description

  • Deeply moisturizes and helps soothe irritations on face & body.
  • Calendula and 24h moisturizing formula soothes skin irritations to keep skin healthy and soft.
  • Non-greasy and easily absorbed.
  • Hypoallergenic and especially skin-friendly ingredients reduce risk of allergies.
  • Skin compatibility clinically and dermatologically approved.
  • 0% parabens, alcohol and colorants.

HOW IT WORKS

The 24h moisturizing formula with calendula soothes skin irritations and promotes a stronger skin barrier. Non-greasy, it is easily absorbed.

PHYSIOGEL Hypo-Allergenic Intensive Cream | BDJ Box 7-day Challenge

26 Jun

I think this product has already been part of the second BDJ Box way back November. How I wish it had been part of the recent boxes then I was really surprised to see it in the June BDJ Box. This box has three come-back-items (L’oreal Fall Repair 3x shampoo and conditioner and Physiogel Intensive Cream) which to me is still fine.

I’ve been meaning to try this one out since this is a lot like the Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. I love products that are safe to use for babies because it is also safe to use for those who have sensitive skin like me.

The packaging is a smooth, squeeze tube type that is filled with product. This isn’t like some squeeze tube ones that are filled with air. I also love that all the information are already in the sturdy tube — indications, directions, etc. from the date manufactured to its expiration date. I love that it is a product of a trusted company, Stiefel. My trusted soap, Sastid Soap is also a product of Stiefel!

physiogel intensive cream

It also has this cap that keeps the product from coming out. It comes in only one size, 50 ml and retails for 574.50php. The price may turn you off since you can get other creams that work but cost cheaper.

Myra E lotion | Vitamin E beads Work

19 Jun

A friend suggested that I try Myra Hand and Body Lotion and since I am a sucker for moisturizers, I gladly picked this one up. There were four variants, I think. The blue, purple, gray and this. I am just not sure of the other three but since I have normal (and sensitive) skin, I picked the simplest of all in the smallest size.

The packaging is completely labeled and the plastic squeeze tub is a bit sturdy. I just think that it is a bit chubby, bulky and not handy at all to bring anywhere. I am a fan of the slim typed bottles which can easily fit my pocket.

REVIEW: SkinWhite Powerwhitening Face Cream Powder

16 May

Almost two months ago, while I was doing the grocery, I found this in the buy 1 take 1 section. I haven’t been there again so I don’t know if it is still on sale. I only got it for 56php for buy1 take1!  What I  am very sure of is this is widely available and is not hard to find in your local department stores, drugstores and groceries!

This is my first time to try a product coming from Skin White and I was a bit doubtful if this works. But hey, for the price, I guess it is worth the risk.
