Krave Clear Queen Gentle Makeup Remover | First Step to Clearer Skin

9 Sep

If you have been reading my blog way back, you would have come across this proud Philippine brand, Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals. My uber sensitive, oily acneic face did not go haywire with any product I used with them. I have been loving their new products lately so now I am raving about one of their newest products – the makeup remover named CLEAR QUEEN.

Product Description

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque | New Found Love

28 May

The face masks I’ve been using are finished so I was on a hunt for a new one. I get masks from BDJ Box but I am not a fan of those masks in a sachet, where you stick the wet tissue/cloth type on your face.

I was watching a youtube video of ShebbyChic one night and I saw her use Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque as an overnight acne spot treatment for her face. When we were out one weekend, I dropped by Healthy Options in SM North Edsa and was looking for the tube with the old packaging. The SA told me Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque changed their packaging, but the amount is still basically the same. I got this for Php 395 for 8 oz of product! Steal!

25 Aug

The August BDJ Box for this year is focused on giving our crowning glories a treat, hence the theme – Luscious Locks.

August 2014 BDJ Box Luscious Locks

I don’t mind receiving hair care products lately. I realized that I have not been giving my hair attention. I still use shampoo, conditioner and hair serum. I skip hair masks for months so maybe that’s why my hair feels heavy already.

Though there’s a product repeat on this box, I am still happy about it.

Snow Skin Whitening Soap | Gentlest whitening soap I’ve tried

19 Aug

I know I have a lot of backlogs with reviews and all I post recently are unboxing… I have two overdue unboxing posts that I need to catch up on when exam days are over.

Anyway, almost two weeks ago I received a package which contains 4 Snow Skin Whitening Soap and 1 box of Snow Caps. I was really happy to get them and was really excited to use them. For now, I will be reviewing the Snow Soap.

The box is sealed and bubble wrapped guaranteeing consumers that what we get is new and original.

Belo Essentials AcnePro Pimple Gel | Third Step to Clear Skin System

30 May

I don’t buy over-the-counter anti-acne gel products because, from my experience, it does otherwise on my skin. I have tried a few and each time I ended up with bigger zits that have pus way deep inside my dermis! I will not name them anymore out of respect, but I tell you, my skin went cray cray with every use of these products. Glad that Sample Room released samples of Belo AcnePro Pimple Gel first so I could try it out first before actually purchasing one. I am willing to try out yet another anti-acne gel to see if it will make me break out or not.
