Belo SunExpert Body Shield SPF60 | Skin Friendly Summer Must-Have!

28 Apr

Our family spent our weekend in Ocean Villa in Puerto Azul. There is a beach nearby, approximately a 10-minute walk from where we were staying so I packed four sun care products with me, all of which came from Sample Room!

I am going to go on a detailed review of the Belo SunExpert Body Shield SPF60. This was also included in the special edition #BeloGlamourbox which I already have an unboxing post here.

Belo SunExpert Transparent Mist SPF50 | Love at First Spray!

28 Apr

Ever since I got to try this in the special edition #BeloGlamourbox, it did not leave my bag ever! I always bring this with me everywhere! I remember I had physical therapy sessions in UST Hospital, most of which are scheduled in the afternoon and this had been my bestfriend since!

Then I almost fainted when I saw this being sampled in Sample Room! I gotta have a backup of this, so I helped myself with one sample of this plus the Skin White body wash.

The Cream Factory Bath Cream | Give in to Skindulgence

13 Feb

It seemed that the change of climate has affected our country and we experienced cool weather until early February. Now, we’re back to feeling a bit of summer.

Back to those days when cold weather was on, I like keeping my skin hydrated and moisturized by using The Cream Factory Bath Cream. The season was the perfect excuse to use warm water for bathing. Add in some creamy goodness of this and it feels like heaven after every shower.

The Cream Factory Bath Cream

Product Description:

THE CREAM FACTORY begins with goat’s milk which is packed with vitamins, minerals, and probiotics which moisturize, exfoliate, heal, and promote collagen growth. But THE CREAM FACTORY didn’t settle for just any goat’s milk – it uses real Netherlands goat’s milk which is known for its purity and quality.

But THE CREAM FACTORY didn’t stop there! It went around the world to find high quality active botanical extracts to add to the creamy goat’s milk. Imagine luxurious Spanish almond oil and exotic Brazilian acai berry. These make each concoction of THE CREAM FACTORY especially delicious.

Flavors: Goat’s Milk & Almond: The Detoxifying Soap

            Goat’s Milk & Jojoba: The Clarifying Soap

            Goat’s Milk & Yogurt: The Soothing Soap

            Goat’s Milk & Seaweed: The Revitalizing Soap

            Goat’s Milk & Cinnamon: The Purifying Soap

            Goat’s Milk & Avocado: The Radiating Soap

            Goat’s Milk & Acai Berry: The Age-Defying Soap

            Goat’s Milk & Witch Hazel: The Rejuvenating Soap

            Goat’s Milk & Honey: The Germ Killing Soap

Full size: 768 ml / Bundled pack (3 bottles of 221 ml)

Ofra Lipstick in 202 | Classy + Modern Red Lips

29 Nov

Glamourbox subscribers were given the chance to try out lippies from a new brand called, Ofra. I received this in my Beauty SOS Glamourbox. I am not so sure with the availability of this particular brand in the market but for sure it is available online in Glamourbox.

Ofra Lipstick in 202

Priced at ₱650, I think this is the most expensive lipstick I own. It has a red shade like that of Avon Vitaluscious with a blue undertone to it.

AVON True Color Eye Shadow Quad in Purple Pop | Elegance in 1-2-3-4

20 Aug

I got this full size sample from the Special Edition Avon Glamourbox I got last July. Though I am not into eyeshadows, I think this eyeshadow is a big help for me to try different looks with.

AVON TRUE COLOR EYE SHADOW QUAD in Purple Pop

Avon has this standard sleek black packaging that has the AVON logo embedded in front. It looks nice but I think the packaging is not that sturdy. It is a bit bulky if you’re going to bring this with you anywhere. But this bulkiness is somewhat because of the big mirror and the brushes included in it.

REVIEW: Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm

13 Mar
Thanks to Glamourbox February box, I got my first ever Carmex Lip product. The full size sample I got is the Carmex Moisturizing Lip balm that is in a squeeze tube type. Actually there are two Carmex freebies – the jar type and the squeeze tube type.
IMG_0584
Here is the picture of the product information at the back of the carton packaging:
???????????????????????????????
Carmex products are easy to see because of their trademark colors: red and yellow. As you can see in the picture, the squeeze tube is yellow and the twist cap is red. I was excited to try this out so I gave my other lip balms a rest just to road test this one out. I just can’t get enough of this and I find myself using it more often than I thought I would.
???????????????????????????????
For 109.75php, you get 10g of the product. Niiiccceee!
???????????????????????????????
I like the simplicity of the product which suits users of any age and gender. The red cap is easy to use, twist to open and twist to close. It keeps the product clean and makes it very hygienic to use. You can swipe the tube directly on the lips when you’re on the go, just be careful not to squeeze too much so you will just use enough. You can also use your clean fingers to get a little amount from the tube then apply on your lips. I prefer using my fingers though so I can apply thoroughly.
???????????????????????????????
I use it whenever  I feel my lips are starting to chap. I use it before going to bed and as soon as  I wake up the following morning.
I use it before heading out to do errands. I use it wherever I am actually. It gives off a cooling, tingling mentholated feel that subsides after 10minutes, give or take.
???????????????????????????????
It does its job well — helps to moisturize lips and relieves dryness. I also love that it is not sticky at all. There was no heaviness or waxy feel on my lips. If you are keen on the ingredients, you have to be aware that there is petrolatum and salicylic acid in the ingredient. I would still give this a go but I still prefer organic products.
What I like:
(+) colors that standout and shout, “PICK ME!”
(+) the packaging would suit any gender who would want to use a lip balm
(+) easy to open twist cap
(+) complete information labeled at the back
(+) squeeze tubes are better than jars/tubs for hygienic purposes
(+) the round opening makes it easier to apply directly on the lips
(+) upon application, you will feel the cooling, tingling sensation because of the menthol
(+) not sticky, not waxy and not drying on the lips
(+) prevents dryness or chapped lips
(+) makes my lips soft and healthy looking
(+) heals chapped lips due to extreme temperatures
(+) may last for three months because a little goes a long way (depends on the usage)
(+) affordable for 109php/10g
What I wish:
(-) its ingredients would be on the organic side (no pertrolatum and salicylic acid)
(-) it has SPF
(-) it comes in bigger sizes for home use
OVERALL: I love this lip balm! It relieves dryness, moisturizes lips and keeps it healthy-looking.
Will I repurchase? Maybe. I am more of an organic gal and prefers to use organic products.

Will I recommend this? Yes! This is good for anyone of any age who needs a lip balm to moisturize lips and relieve dryness and chapping.
