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!

Moringa O2 Toner | The MultiVitamin Toner

16 Apr

Around December last year, hubby got this one together with the Moringa Therapy Oil from Sample Room. He is somehow getting the hang of ordering for both of us to use. But most of the time, he will just try and then leave them to me.

On to the review now…

The Moringa O2 Toner has the same bottle as that of the Gluta-C toner, except that this one has a green cap and the other has orange. The scent is very refreshing, like green tea, which is the signature scent of the Moringa O2 line. For only ₱89, you get 100ml of product. It lasts for a month or two, depending on your usage.

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 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.

St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Cleanser | A Refreshingly Rare Find

10 Aug

This is such a steal since this is not often available in malls and drugstores. I was looking for this for a long time because I’ve had my share of using St.Ives products when I was younger and they work. When I saw this, I wanted to get more than two bottles actually. But hubby disagreed even after I explained that this is such a rare find. He told me that with my usage this will last me a long time already.

Product Description

  • Clears breakouts and reduces redness. 
  • Salicylic Acid Acne Medication With 100% Natural Green Tea. 
  • This cleanser deep cleans to gently remove dirt and make-up and helps maintain skin’s moisture balance.

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.
