Avon Skin Goodness BB Cream in Nude | More of a Tinted Moisturizer

23 Oct

Thanks to Glamourbox, I got to try another yet promising BB Cream — Avon Skin Goodness BB Cream in Nude. I got it from the Special Avon Glamourbox which you can view here.

I like that this squeeze tube comes with a gold box (not in the picture). I love the gold/bronze and black twist cap combo this tube has because it looks sophisticated. It is very handy since it fits just more than a half of my palm, meaning, I can stash it in my bag when I travel.

Too Cool for School BB Foundation | Very Handy for Girls on the Go

23 Aug

Too Cool for School is a new Korean brand which recently launched here in the Philippines. Thankfully, BDJ Box had included it in the last July BDJ Box.

I fancy the cute packaging — it’s almost like that of Etude House’s. I think it has a long brand name but hey, with its acronym, TCFS — I think it is fine.

Product Description

The travel-sized version is perfect for girls always on the go, as this BB Cream quickly covers all skin imperfections for a natural, flawless skin! It has SPF 37 PA++, so you’re always protected wherever you go.

Too Cool for School BB Foundation

I haven’t been to any of the two stores they recently opened (SM Mall of Asia and SM North Edsa) so I don’t have any idea if this BB Foundation has other shades or other variants. The one I got is the sample size, 219php, which I think will last me months because I don’t need to put a plenty amount to cover the whole face. The packaging is very convenient and can fit the smallest kikay kit.

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.

L’Oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UV Protector | More Than a Sunblock for Me

11 Jun

Rainy days are here again and that means summer is officially over. But that does not mean you have to stash away your summer skin essentials! Our skin needs UV protection all year long!

I was very excited when I saw this in my March BDJ Box or their “L’oreal Box”. It was a full-size sample worth 545php!

REVIEW: Snoe HyperFunction Foundation + Serum

12 Feb

I got this little baby from the box Snoe Beauty Inc. gave away during the 2012 Bloggers’ Event. It’s one of my most favorite item from the samples!


Product Description:

Snoe Premium Cosmetics HyperFunction Fond de Teint + Serum is a lightweight formula that gives skin perfect coverage, skin healing ingredients, antioxidants and broad-spectrum sun protection. This feel-good formula is extra emollient to instantly “melt” into skin and give it a fresh, healthy glow. Over time, it also helps replenish and strengthen skin. 

It’s a multi fuctional serum foundation that will also protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays while creating a flawless finish.

Directions: Apply directly on skin or use a Stippling or Foundation brush. For perfect and matte application set with any Snoe finishing powder.

Infused with:

  • Escargot – repairs damaged skin cells, repair scars, and boost production of collagen and elastin. It has anti-bacterial, anti acne, anti inflammatory properties.
  • Broccoli – rich in vitamin C and K that helps whiten and improve the skin elasticity 
  • Acai berry – said to be the fruit that has the most powerful antioxidants in the world!
X0 - Vanilla Creme - Light with Neutral Undertones

The sampler is really convenient for me, especially in toting around my kikay kit. I don’t double dip to keep this tub clean. I just ‘pour’ a dollop onto the back of my palm and use my finger or a foundation brush to apply it on my face.

Luckily, the shade XO – Vanilla Creme (Light with neutral undertones) blended well on my skin.

Who could say no to the benefits it gives? It heals, whitens, protects with SPF20, gives a flawless finish and has antioxidants to boot. I was hooked immediately with this, plus the scent is amazing. It has this light fresh scent to it which I really like.

This has a creamy consistency which can easily be blended. It blends well on my skin (too well that it disappears!) and stays that way. I am so happy because there was no obvious foundation streaks, no redness around the nose and no noticeable pores seen. It looks so seamless and is great for getting the no make-up make-up look! It smoothens, evens out skin tone, and gives a flawless, semi-matte finish.

It does not feel thick and heavy on  face. I think this is more of a tinted moisturizer than a foundation because its lightweight and gives a light to medium coverage. You will still need a concealer to hide the imperfections. Snoe Poudre Extraordinaire is a perfect match for setting this foundation serum.

The full size of this foundation serum sells at 1199php. It may seem too expensive, but if you read the label, a bottle has 55ml of product. Quite a steal since most foundations in the market are only available in 30ml sizes or less.

What I like about it:
– the rare ingredients and their benefits
– it is a product of Snoe!
– has spf 20 (I still use my trusty sunscreen though)
– gives a flawless complexion with light to medium coverage
– smoothens and evens out my skin tone
– no need for primer because it makes pores less noticeable
– a little goes a long way
– doesn’t feel thick, heavy or oily
– doesn’t cake
– has a sweet scent to it
I wish:
– I could buy the full size version soon!
I will definitely get the full size when this tub runs out! I will be keeping this tub so I can just refill and bring this with me.

DIY: tinted moisturizer

4 Dec

I currently ran out of Myra E Tinted Moisturizer so I thought of making my own do-it-yourself concoction from two of my fave Krave products.

Here are the products that we need: moisturizer, foundation (or concealer), spatula, extra containers

moisture souffle night cream + ricotta liquid foundation

moisture souffle night cream + ricotta liquid foundation

I am not sure of the ratio but I used a 1:5 ratio, 1 drop of foundation is to 5 drops (or more) of moisturizer. You can add up to any of those two.


I didn’t use extra containers. I opened a new moisturizer to replenish the one I am currently using. The new night moisturizer will be the plain moisturizer and the other is for my day tinted moisturizer. I just continuously stir the two together until the color settles into a beige-ivory shade.


It may be a bit messy but don’t fret. I just wiped the excess with tissue and VOILA!

I now use two different moisture souffle moisturizers. The tinted one for mornings and the original one at night. 🙂

You can try this out too using your own favorites! Let me know what you used, alright?

I will try mixing the Snoe BBfied sampler I have and let you see soon.

Myra Vitaglow Tinted Facial Moisturizer – REVIEW

8 May

I was really eyeing on Olay Total Effects Touch of Foundation when I came across this 35ml tube. I bought it then and there and decided to give it a try first. It has become one of my fave products because it is never time consuming! Myra Vitaglow makes it easy for me to prep myself for the day. Its liquid consistency makes it very easy to apply. You just apply it with your fingertips (or with a sponge) and voila, you are ready to face your day.

Since I became a mom, my time for skin regimen has been cut short. I really need to use products that do more than one job. And with this product, you don’t only get two benefits. It is a moisturizer with a hint of color, plus it is infused with minerals, vitamin E, and SPF 15 to boot. The minerals are quite obvious because your skin becomes luminous after application. They literally give my skin a healthy glow (like a Cullen!). Since it is from Myra, Vitamin E is an expectation. This fat soluble vitamin helps keep skin looking soft, healthy and young. Its SPF15 protects my skin from the sun’s harmful rays. It was not really specified if it protects skin from both UVA and UVB. Lastly, it is dermatologist-tested so it is safe for daily use.

To sum it all up, here are the pros and cons of this product.

(+) moisturizes with vitamin E

(+) with SPF 15

(+) the ivory shade is perfect in giving me natural coverage

(+) evens out my skin tone

(+) mild and derma-tested

(+) very cheap! (135.00php) Definitely a must-try.

(-) it has only 2 shades (Ivory and Beige) to choose from

(-) the too obvious glittery effect that makes me look like Edward Cullen’s sister

(-) the expiration (October 2012) which is a bit near (I am so tipid with products that sometimes they last a year)
