KRAVE Eyebrow Definer Kit in Pecan Deluxe | Obsessesed with this Very First Organic Eyebrow Powder

2 Dec

I have been obsessed with well groomed, natural looking eyebrows. So when Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals released their organic eyebrow powder, I got it immediately. I am a Krave distributor and ordered this last March 2013. This is my very first eyebrow powder! I have reviewed Shawill and IN2IT too! I know this review is kind of late already but I still have it and still using it.

KRAVE Eyebrow Definer Kit in Pecan Deluxe

This eyebrow definer kit comes with a black box with a little fuschia design. The box and the eyebrow definer kit look so sleek and sophisticated. The eyebrow kit has a thin, sturdy plastic container with brush and mirror included. The brush is two-way: one for lining and the other for blending. It has an eyebrow wax and powder, which is unbelievably organic!

REVIEW: Krave’s Oil Eliminator HD with super fruit

31 May

Remember the Krave event last January 12? This was one of the items I got for free, the other one was Visibly Rosy Mineral Veil.

This is actually an improved version of their Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator. Improved in packaging, weight, price, benefits!

For 520php, you get 6g of product. Better than the 285php for 3g of product, right? The product now comes in a box, too. The box is where all the information you need are in.

I tried this once way back February without using the sponge that came with it. I used my Ecotools kabuki brush in applying it and it did mattify my face but only for about 2 hours. So I thought to myself, “I like the Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator from the Poreless series better.”

This went on a hiatus for awhile since I still have some Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator left. Just recently, when I accidentally dropped my Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator and emptied the whole product compact (BOO! My bad!), I told myself why not make use of the improved version, the Oil Elimator HD, which has better packaging.

Click Continue Reading to see if the improved Oil Eliminator HD is better than the old version.

REVIEW: Human Nature 100% Natural Bamboo Body Scrub

21 Mar

It’s bikini season once again! Are you ready to show some skin?

If you want to achieve soft, smooth, clean and radiant skin, exfoliate!

Why exfoliate? Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells (which settles on the epidermis, the top most layer of the skin), revealing your skin’s radiance. Exfoliating your skin from top to toe will get you glowing and ready for summer!

BUT…make sure what you use to exfoliate is safe, effective and gentle on the skin. Try Human Nature’s 100% Natural Bamboo Body Scrub in Vanilla Paradise!

I’ve had this product ever since it first hit the shelves. I attend Human Nature Manila’s magalogue turnover most of the time and I think I got this September 8 of last year. Check out my haul post last September.

I know this review is late already, but I think it just gave me enough time to test the product.

??????????????????????????????? I haven’t tried their old body scrub but the HN Manila Team says this is better than the previous one.

Product Description

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and step into paradise in the comfort of your own home. Our 100% Natural Bamboo Body Scrub will give you the complete bath pampering experience so that you and your skin can get that much deserved TLC. It has bamboo scrubs and black rice to gently yet effectively exfoliate deep-seated dirt leaving your skin radiant, polished, and so much softer. Experience paradise in a bottle.

Look your best on the beach by getting a beautiful sun-kissed look. 100% Natural Bamboo Body Scrub helps prep your skin by exfoliating dead skin cells that get in the way of an even toned tan as you soak up the sun. Smooth away deep-seated dirt with the help of bamboo scrubs and black rice for radiant, polished and soft skin. Not only does it give you the ultimate pampering experience but it also leaves you looking beautifully bronzed this summer!

???????????????????????????????

 As always, Human Nature provides the complete product label: ingradients, expiry date, address of the company, etc.

It’s great that this comes in a squeeze tube for hygienic purposes. This body scrub comes in 2 sizes: 50g for 129.75php and 200g for 349.75php.

???????????????????????????????

This all natural body scrub boasts of black rice and bamboo scrubs that effectively exfoliates dead skin cells and deep-seated dirt without being harsh on the skin. It has a rich, thick and foamy consistency that spreads easily on the skin. I can really feel the granules work and clean what soaps/body washes tend to leave behind. It is advisable to exfoliate the skin once or twice a week but when you have this, I think you would want to use this more often!

???????????????????????????????

I also love the scent of vanilla infused in this tube! It has this subtle vanilla scent that is not overpowering nor overwhelming. The scent lingers on the bathroom and on my skin! It is simply aromatic!

What I love most is that it leaves my skin lightly scented with baby soft, smooth feel, and a healthy, radiant glow. It doesn’t sting, itch,or  irritate any part of my body. (I usually get boils after I use salt scrubs so I stayed away from them!) Ever since I replaced my old salt scrub with this, boils didn’t appear at all!

I use this once a week or whenever I am stressed and want to pamper myself. On lazy days, I find it enough so I don’t slather on creams. But most often, after exfoliating, I use thick moisturizers or body butters to lock in moisture on my skin. Our skin absorbs better after exfoliation so I make sure to apply moisturizers.

Reasons why I love this:

(+) Pro- Philippines, Pro-poor, Pro-environment

(+) the labels have complete information on the product: ingredients, expiration date, etc.

(+) available online, in some stores/kiosks, thru dealers (like me! you can order this from me!) and in Human Nature branches

(+) affordable for 50g/129.75php and 200g/349.75php

(+) vanilla scent is so yummy

(+) doesn’t sting, itch, irritate and dry out my skin

(+) doesn’t leave any residue after rinsing

(+) makes skin feeling soft and smooth

(+) leaves skin with a healthy, radiant glow

(+) works best with lotions/moisturizers

What I wish: 

They will come up with a strawberry scent and green tea scent! 🙂

REVIEW: Krave’s Triple P Fruit Masque

6 Mar

Since the 10% off discount from Krave is still ongoing, I grabbed the chance to try out the other mask they have. I have done a review on the Detox and White Mud mask  which you can check out here.

???????????????????????????????

Triple P stands for Papaya, (Green) Papaya, and Pineapple.

Product Description:

USDA ORGANIC
NO IRRITATING CHEMICALS
NO HARMFUL PRESERVATIVES

PRICE: P285

Ripe Papaya is rich in vitamin C and enzymes that take away dead skin cells while the pineapple softens the skin and fights free radical damage!

Our unique formulation includes Green papaya that effectively exfoliates & lightens the skin as much as the ripe papaya does. Combining these 3 Ps with the spot & blemish control ability of WITCH HAZEL, they work synergistically to give you one of the best face masque your skin will truly crave for. 

SKIN BENEFICIAL KEY INGREDIENTS:

1. WITCH HAZEL contains tannins that help to tighten skin proteins which then form a protecting covering to help promote skin healing & deeply moisturizing.

2. PAPAYA exfoliates the skin revealing a healthier, whiter & glowing skin. Rich in antioxidants such as vitamin A.

3. GREEN PAPYA help reduce freckles & blemishes due to exposure to sunlight.

4. PINEAPPLE contains enzymes that make skin elastic, improve skin hydration, diminish age spots and remove damaged and dead cells.

APPLICATION:
Wash your face with CUPINE ALOEPA facial wash. Apply evenly on face avoiding the eye area. Leave for at least 15 minutes or until dry. Wash with water. Tone & apply moisturizer, for best results use FRUITTIE PORELESS toner & MOISTURE SOUFFLE night crème.
Use 1-2x a week.

As you can see in the picture, the tub is filled with a clear gel type mask. It is somewhat like the Cupine AloePa facial wash which has a gel like consistency. I think this is a newbie in masks since the face masks I know are on the creamy muddy side. Since summer is approaching, I am switching to gel-type products. Gel type products are easily absorbed and as not as heavy as the cream type ones.

???????????????????????????????

I am using this once a week as I kept the mud mask for awhile.

After washing my face, I apply the mask with clean fingers. I just get a product using my index finger and it is already enough for my whole face. I let it dry while I get busy with mommy stuff, that is roughly 30minutes. It gives a cooling tingling effect, but far from the tightening effect the mud mask gives. This means that the product is taking effect. This does not sting as much as the mud mask but I can feel its effect too.I rinse it after and follow with my toner, moisturizer, sunscreen and eye cream.

???????????????????????????????

Here’s a summary of my likes and dislikes:

(+) USDA certified organic without parabens

(+) feels light on the skin

(+) easily absorbed by the skin

(+) works instantly!

(+) imporoves skin elasticity

(+) gives hydration

(+) lessens oil and prevents oil build up

(+) sloughs off dead skin cells

(+) has anti-aging properties!

(+) tightens pores and brightens my skin giving it a healthy glow

(+) available in a new improved formulation which comes in a bigger size!!! YAY!

(-) double dipping because of the tub [the new triple p mask comes in a better packaging!]

REVIEW: Human Nature 100% Natural Cleansing Bar

19 Feb

For the first time in the history of Human Nature, they released an all natural fragrance free natural cleansing bar. Everyone was giddy excited the time it was available in the market. I usually attend the Human Nature Manila Branch magalogue turnover during mornings but just this time I got to attend the afternoon’s session. And to my (and fellow dealers) surprise, it was out of stock already. All those who attended the morning magalogue turnover hoarded.

I got this after a week’s worth of waiting.

???????????????????????????????

Product Description:

Why go for soaps that leave chemical traces on your skin and the environment? Choose only the good!  Our 100% Natural Cleansing Bar harnesses nature’s goodness to wash away the day’s dirt and grime while leaving your skin feelingcleanfresh and moisturized. And because it’s  fragrance-free, your skin is left clean and clear from all synthetic irritants found in chemical soaps.

Our cleansing bar is cold-processed, which means that it takes more time to make than your usual chemical soaps, which are hot-processed. Hot-processing removes the naturally hydrating glycerin in soap, which is often replaced afterward with synthetic fillers and harmful additives that leave the skin dry and dull after bathing. Cold-processing, on the other hand, produces high-quality soap that retains beneficial natural glycerin which keeps skin soft and hydrated. As a bonus, cold-processing consumes less energy and produces less waste – so it’s not only skin-friendly, but eco-friendly as well!

Do the earth and your skin a favor! Each time you use our cleansing bar, you help make our environment a little greener and your skin a lot cleaner!

???????????????????????????????

Before using this, I cut it into four parts to save it from melting away. I have done this to other easy melting soaps (Ceraklin soap of my daughter before and Snoe’s Oatmeal Soap). I don’t mind using small parts of soaps, though some may tend to have a hard time holding and keeping it in their hands as they lather.

???????????????????????????????

The 90g soap sells for 64.75php. Not bad for an all natural soap! The cleansing bar is white in color and is fragrance free (as said in the label).

I’ve been using this for a month now. Roughly, I use a part for about 10days. The number of days the soap lasts depends on the number of times I shower. On normal days, I take a bath twice a day. I never go to bed without hitting the shower. During hot and humid days, I take a bath more than 3 times because I just hate feeling hot and sweaty.

Thankfully, this cleansing bar doesn’t dry out my skin, no matter how many times I use it. It lathers well but is not as sudsy as other commercial soaps I’ve tried. It also rinses out quickly without leaving any residue on my skin. I didn’t experience stings and dryness with this. It cleans well but doesn’t make my skin feel tight. It hydrates well because I always come out of the bathroom feeling fresh. I love that it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturized. Oh and it really helps if you follow it up with a lotion/body butter to lock in the moisture. The perfect combo for beautiful, soft, healthy skin: Cleansing Bar + Berry Bliss Lotion in the morning and Cleansing Bar + Berry Bliss Body Butter at night! Love the results!

The only downside I think is that it feels a bit gooey if left wet. I usually leave my soap ‘dry’ in the sense that it is free from excess water so it won’t melt and be wasted.

Reasons why I love this:

(+) HHN product means its Pro- Philippines, Pro-poor, Pro-environment

(+) unique packaging with complete information, ingredients, expiration date, etc.

(+) available online, in some stores/kiosks, thru dealers (like me! you can order this from me!) and in Human Nature branches

(+) affordable for 64.75 for 90g of product! 

(+) fragrance free and mild yet cleans very well

(+) doesn’t sting and dry out my skin

(+) doesn’t leave any residue after rinsing

(+) makes skin feeling hydrated, healthy and moisturized

(+) works best with lotions/moisturizers

I didn’t want to write a negative comment here because I can live with its soft creamy side that melts easily with water. I cut my soaps even before and I’m so used to ‘drying’ them up before putting it back on the soap dish. Tee hee! 🙂

I just love this so much and I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for an all natural soap that delivers!

Great job HHN!
