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!

Topaz Mommy x Bobbi Brown Makeup Workshop

13 May

I arrived in Bobbi Brown Megamall (between Bldg A and Bldg B) 11 am sharp. There were mommies too, I assumed, my fellow winners/readers of Topaz Mommy, a blog by Ms. Frances A. Sales. We were all waiting and when Ms. Frances arrived, my jaw dropped. I whispered to my new mommy friend, Aubrey, “Ang ganda ni Ms. Frances!” She walked through the store, wearing a black tube top, black pants, pearl necklace and a bare face– simply gorgeous!

I love this Bobbi Brown store because it is beautifully arranged, and the products are so pretty!

We were doing some icebreakers and just chatting before the workshop started. We also took turns swatching which shade will match our skin tones.Ms. Frances gave out Leuchtturm notebooks (Php 1200) to each of us.

Bobbi Brown Manager also dropped in to say hi. Ms. Sam Sadhwani was also there! We did not know that there was a mini workshop room inside the Bobbi Brown flagship store! Ms. Tamara was the one who taught us about the basics of makeup application. The model, of course, was Ms. Frances!

The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer | For that summer-y, smitten feel

29 Sep

I don’t know what’s happening with me but my love for blushes has somehow put to rest and contouring powders replace them.

I got my first product from The Balm Cosmetics. I ordered this from My Pretty Haven, an online shop in Facebook and Instagram. The seller’s name is Kristy and she is super nice and accommodating. I first asked if the Bahama Mama is matte, because if it is, I’ll purchase one. I paid Php 600 to own this popular contouring powder.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate | BDJ Box 7-day Challenge

6 Sep

Ever had that feeling when you hesitated to try something out, gave in, then find yourself getting addicted to it? This is the same feeling I had when I used the newest product from Shiseido!

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

I had a ginormous zit near my left eyebrow and I think that I had an allergic reaction to something I ate or used. I went to Aesthetics Institute of the Philippines (AIP) to avail of the voucher from a previous BDJ Box but they didn’t inject it.

I still used this new Shiseido concentrate all over my face, twice a day for seven days straight. I am just thankful for BDJ Box for letting us sample products to test if they work on us or not.

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.

Unboxing the Beauties and Babies Glamourbox

20 Aug

I was thinking twice if I will still get the Beauties and Babies Glamourbox since I’ve seen in instagram that most of the products here are sample sizes. I still gave in since I thought it included a full-size product of Bio Oil and it’s better to pay ₱595 for a glamourbox than pay ₱495 for just the Bio Oil.

Beauties and Babies Glamourbox

Anyway, here is what’s inside the Beauties and Babies Glamourbox:

1 BIO OIL

2 EDEN’S PARADISE Whitening B lue Salve

3 NATASHA BEAUTY Heel Mate 

4 MUSTELA 9 MONTHS Comfort Nursing Balm and Stretch MArks Double-Action
