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.

Belo Essentials AcnePro Pimple Gel | Third Step to Clear Skin System

30 May

I don’t buy over-the-counter anti-acne gel products because, from my experience, it does otherwise on my skin. I have tried a few and each time I ended up with bigger zits that have pus way deep inside my dermis! I will not name them anymore out of respect, but I tell you, my skin went cray cray with every use of these products. Glad that Sample Room released samples of Belo AcnePro Pimple Gel first so I could try it out first before actually purchasing one. I am willing to try out yet another anti-acne gel to see if it will make me break out or not.

MAKEUP TAG

26 Apr

I gave in to the tag from RareVanity. I am an avid reader of Ms. Gem’s blog and she is even one of the reasons why I started blogging. I read her post and thought that this was quite interesting… So without further ado, here are my answers:

SKINCARE

How many times do you wash your face daily?

On a regular basis, I wash my face twice daily though there are days when I wash it thrice because a) it’s sooo hot and b) I have to prepare for something.

What skin type do you have? (dry, oily. combo)

I have sensitive, oily and acneic skin. I breakout due to hormones (pms and menstruation days) and reaction to new products.

What is your current facial wash?

I alternate using Krave Cupine Aloepa Facial Wash (morning) and ZA facial wash (night).

Do you exfoliate?

I only exfoliate at night and not more than twice a week. I feel it’s better at night it’s as if I’m preparing my skin for its “renewal time”.

What brand do you use?

Depending on m my mood, I alternate using Human Nature’s Purifying Facial Scrub, Cure, and Olay regenerist megasonic.

What moisturizer do your use?

I collect moisturizers but currently I am using different moisturizers for the morning and at night. In the morning, I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then Celeteque Anti-aging moisturizer with SPF15. At night I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then ZA Collagen Moisturizer.

Do you have freckles?

I have none.

Do you use eye cream?

Yes! In the morning I use Olay Regenerist Eye Cream and Lash Serum. At night, I use Avon Anew Genics Eye Cream.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

Sadly, yes. I easily react to products with harsh ingredients so I always opt for those safe for sensitive skin.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ? I wanted to but I haven’t used it yet.

Unboxing March 2014 BDJ Box | Exclusive BENEFIT Cosmetics Box

9 Mar

I got giddy when BDJ Box uploaded a teaser photo of what will be inside the March 2014 Box. I was guessing one includes Porefessional PRO Balm…and it did!

For the first time, BDJ Box was able to release an EXCLUSIVE BENEFIT BDJ Box!

March 2014 BDJ Box (Exclusive BENEFIT Cosmetics Box)

I was happy to receive the box personally but I got a wee bit disappointed when I got hold of it. It did not seem heavy compared to the previous boxes they released. When I opened the box I felt happy to see samples of Benefit’s famous products. I looked for one full-sized product but there was none.  This box was just like the August 2013 BDJ Box where the  exclusive Shiseido box contained only sample sizes of products.

Nevertheless, it is still BENEFIT and we get to try and own their products for only ₱580.

Here are the products inside:

1 Porefessional PRO Balm

2 Stay Don’t Stray

3 Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow

4 Stay Flawless

5 Benetint

AVON Anew 360 White CC Cream SPF 30 PA+++ 15-in-1 | BDJ Box 7-day Challenge

25 Feb

Avon Philippines just joined the CC Cream bandwagon as they released their latest product — AVON Anew 360 White CC Cream SPF 30 PA+++ 15-in-1. That’s quite a mouthful isn’t it? The bottomline is that this is more of a skincare product than a makeup. More on the moisturizer side but with high SPF content.

I got this particular one from the January-February BDJ Box. This was the first thing I noticed and loved among the rest of what’s inside the box. Anything with SPF tickles my fancy so I tried this at once… and I love it! Oh, if you want to subscribe for a BDJ Box, you can go to http://bdjbox.com/register.
