Unboxing the Special Edition SNOE Glamourbox

4 Feb

Glamourbox had tied up with SNOE Beauty, Inc. late last year and this partnership blossomed into something wonderful. They were able to come up with a Special Edition SNOE Glamourbox.

There were very limited boxes and I was not able to get one on the first batch. Luckily, they were able to open more slots and I made sure that I get to subscribe on the second batch.

It came around the third week of January and I was amazed to find that the box felt heavier than usual. Though somehow, I expected it to be one. Giddily, I opened the box immediately and this is what I found:

MoringaO2 Malunggay Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil | Oil Healthy!

15 Nov

I am such a believer of Malunggay because of the benefits it gives. I am a lactating mother who takes 1-2 capsules of Malunggay Life Oil to aid in helping my body produce more milk. In lieu with that, I am beginning to see the value of having moringa in the products I use.

One moringa product I love is the moisturizer from the same company as this herbal therapy oil I’m about to review — MoringaO2. I saw their event in Instagram and found out that there is a new product to be added to the malunggay family — MoringaO2 Malunggay Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil. This is a bit mouthful and it explicitly says what this is for. And when I saw it in Mercury Drug almost a week after that, I helped myself to one.

Unboxing Beauty SOS Glamourbox

12 Oct

Apologies for not remembering the exact day this Glamourbox came. I think end of September or first days of October. I have a ton of things to think about and do so I did not really remember that fact.

Anyway, I was not really ecstatic when I got this box. It felt a bit light and when I opened it, there were still empty parts in the box. Well, Glamourbox has a big, sturdy box that is a bit hard to fill completely.

9 Sep

I wanted to join the Sample Room and Gluta-C contest but I guess it’s now too late. Nevertheless, I really like this product I got from Sample Room and couldn’t help myself but include a review about it even after the contest and the winner had been announced.

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Facial Day Cream With SPF 25 is another Gluta-C product that is full sized which I got to experience when I slept over my mom’s house.

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.

Unboxing the SM Beauty Box

10 Aug

After seeing this from established bloggers, I have been excited to get this. So this August 1, my little girl and I dropped by in SM North Edsa (the nearest participating mall to our place) to get a box, and in this case, two boxes! Honestly, all I want is the Olay Eye Cream which is worth 1499php. Technically, it is better to get the beauty box instead of buying the Olay Regenerist eye cream for its regular price.

The SA told me that there were only 15 boxes and when I came there there were only a few left. She said that even they wanted to get one for themselves.

Human Nature 100% Natural Body Butter Cream in Berry Bliss | Oh so Yummy for my Body!

31 Jul

It has been raining most days this July and I find myself grabbing this every night. What makes me want to use it is its very thick and creamy consistency. I think that my skin feels dehydrated whenever its cold and to keep it from feeling that way, I have to use something thicker than what I usually apply.

Here comes another product from a company I truly love — Human Nature!

Human Nature 100% Natural Body Butter Cream

Product Description

Have you always stayed away from butter and cream because they’re so sinful? Indulge in rich, buttery cream without the guilt. Made with a fusion of nature’s best, ultra-succulent and potent ingredients, our antioxidant packed, deeply moisturizing Body Butter Cream will transform your thirsty, dry skin into velvety soft, supple skin. And because our Natural Care Labs made sure it’s 100% Natural with 0% calories, luxurious indulgence can now be guilt-free.

Did you know:

Most if not all available body butters and creams in the market right now use synthetic feel modifiers.

Feel modifiers is a term used for petroleum by-product ingredients usually ending in “-one” likesilicone and dimethicone. These sit in a layer on top of your skin keeping the moisture in but at the same time, clogging your pores and trapping in sebum, dirt, and bacteria. It’s like applying a layer of plastic wrap all over your body, suffocating it, and not allowing your skin to breathe. What’s even more disturbing is that according to www.ewg.org, there is insufficient toxicity data to know if dimethicone and silicone are safe for use in personal care products. So why use them at all?

Our Body Butter Cream contains none of these modifiers. Instead, we use premium all-natural plant oils to give your skin the deep moisturization it needs.
