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.

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Ultra-Hydrating Cleansing Oil| Double Up as a Moisturizer

4 Jul

The first makeup remover I’ve had is the one from Human Nature, the Human Nature Sunflower Cleansing Oil. So as not to put this to waste, I alternately use them both.

I am kind of putting my loyalty now to makeup removers which are in an oil form. I think they just melt the makeup away and keep skin moisturized.

I actually had this in my February BDJ Box, the Shiseido Special Box. I know it has been with me for quite a bit and I haven’t written a review about it yet — until now.

I like the simplicity of the packaging. The bottle is a little hard to use since the oil gets stuck up and does not come out quickly. I like the cap because it prevents mess.

As directed, soak a cotton ball with this and apply directly to face and neck. I tried applying the cleansing oil on my face directly and wipe it with a cotton ball. Same results in dissolving and removing makeup but I think the latter is better since I tend to save more of the product.

Since it is oil based, it did well in removing makeup and dirt and doubles up as a moisturizer too. It also easily removes the stubborn waterproof mascaras and eyeliners and I don’t have to tug the delicate skin around the eyes. And when all the makeup, dirt and grime was wiped away, it doesn’t feel like my face has been stripped of its natural moisture. Thumbs up to that! I’ve tried using the product as a leave on moisturizer a couple of times in the evening  too and I love how my skin felt the day after.

With just one use of an almost soaked cotton pad, all the makeup and dirt are cleansed away!

Regarding the price, I think it is a bit pricey than most cleansing oils in the market. But with the anti-aging benefits this product claims, I think it will suffice.

REVIEW: Human Nature 100% Natural Cleansing Oil

18 Dec

This is one of my favorite products from Human Nature. I’ve pledged to myself to be kind to the environment and to myself so I am trying to incorporate organic in everything I use. Sunflower cleansing oil is an addition to that.

Product Claims:

100% Natural

Take it all off with our premium cleansing oil. It gently erases all traces of makeup, even the most stubborn waterproof mascara! Just apply on your face and wipe off. It works double-time too – whereas most cleansing oils and make-up removers are packed with chemicals that strip your skin, ours is a naturally healthy oil which actually conditions your lashes and nourishes your skin.

Did you knowMineral oil, commonly used in personal care products, can actually clog pores. It works by sitting on the skin’s surface, thus blocking pores and impeding the skin’s ability to release toxins. It also dries skin and speeds up premature skin-ageing.

I am really not into using makeup daily, just powder to nix the oil in my face. I thought a makeup remover like this was relatively unimportant. Until I tried Human Nature Sunflower Cleansing Oil!

This is the first and only makeup remover I have used… and I am not planning on switching to any other product other than this one. Let me tell you why.

I started using this around May this year. And as you can see, the bottle is still half full. Well, I don’t use this everyday since I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis.

First of all, one pump is more than enough for the whole face. I pump a small amount of product in my palm, rub my hands together and pat it gently all over my face. I let it settle for about 5-10 minutes then use a cotton ball to wipe my face. Magically, it dissolves and strips away the makeup and dirt accumulated in my face.

Second, I don’t have to tug my face and eyes just to remove the stubborn waterproof mascaras, it melts them away just that. Easy peasy right? It doesn’t end there, once all the oil and makeup are wiped off, soft, smooth skin is revealed. I just follow it up by rinsing with a facial wash,then using a toner and moisturizer.

Third, it has a faint citrusy scent that somehow relaxes me after a long day.

Fourth, I use the remaining oil in my palm in my hair. It is like a hair serum since it softens my hair and keeps frizz away.

Fifth, I use a drop of this as my body oil/inshower moisturizer and my skin feels soft and supple.

Sixth, the price is relatively inexpensive for 200ml of natural product. The new version is 5ml less than the old one. I just wish there is a 50ml version for this so we can bring it along whenever we travel or have a sleepover at my parents’ house.

Seventh, the packaging and the pump bottle is improved and I can’t help myself to get a hold of a new one so I will have a reserve. As you can see, the pump is significantly changed, making it look more sleek and elegant.

better pump, better packaging

better pump, better packaging

I can’t get enough of the hearts on this bottle! I am now inspired to use this more often! Yay for hearts!
