Ponds and The Faceshop

Back when I was in high school, I’ve been using a lot of Ponds skincare like their facial wash, toner, and whitening cream. I’m sure you will question it why some asian countries would want to have more lighter skin, it’s because of the weather. It’s a tropical country, so most the people here have darker skin colour. But my family had a different skin colour it’s more fair, because some of the Filipino people already had a little mix but mostly it is spanish. People would always want to have a lighter skin colour, they will probably find some whitening product to used.

When I was still in high school, there’s only a few brand of skin care products before. But Ponds is popular at that time. My mom introduce to this brand. My skin doesn’t really irritate whenever I used their product. If you are using skincare at the early age, you would still look younger and skin still better when you grow old. But it takes some effort and also you needed to give time for it, the skin care routine during in the morning and evening. For me it will take more than 30 minutes to be done after I take a shower. How bout you girls?

The Ponds released another new product, the “Instabright tone up milk cream”. The product is actually from Thailand i think, because of the letters from the package. This product is hard to find sometimes, I bought this from Watson on the 3rd floor of Festival Mall. I was looking for this product for a few months, luckily I find it. This is perfect to used even if you have oily skin, since it is made for asian skin. I love the smell of it, it’s really smells like milk. It also have a spf, and can brighten your skin instantly. Also good for pores since it have milk, my skin became a bit bouncy like a baby. It also helps my blemishes. I super love this product. It is one of my favourite for this month.

The faceshop had promo last month (save it as a draft first), you can buy two “Jeju aloe ice” for only the price of one product. One of the popular beauty guru from youtube, used this product but a different brand. She had a good result on her skin, I was curious to try it. I’ve been seeing this product last year, but never been interested to try it since i prefer the aloe vera. You have to put this in the fridge, before using it. This is good to used, especially during the summer.

Before using this, you have to put this on the fridge first for about 7 hours. I used this every night before i sleep. It does have a cooling effect when you spread the cream on your face, and it feels good. The jeju aloe ice can easily absorb on your face for about 10-15 minutes. I am using my fan on my face so it may help. The cream texture is very soft, it feels like ice cream when you touch it and it smells like a coconut. My face become a bit smoother than before, it also helps if you have acne prone skin. I recommend to used this during at night only.

Strawberry

Japanese snacks is the best! I used to buy snacks before in Daiso and my favourite is Hello Panda. This is the first time i try their strawberry flavour, it taste really great. I didn’t buy the box, cause i’m on a diet as well lol. I always love the taste of the biscuit in Hello Panda. I haven’t try the Strawberry Pocky. I’m going to eat it, while i’m working on my scrap book.

There are a lot of different flavours in Pocky. I was surprised, when I saw that they have a pizza and barbecue flavour haha! But i’m more interested to try the matcha flavour, maybe next time. Banana chips is my favourite snacks, but it’s hard to say no to japan snacks. I remember when my bestie came back here from Japan two years ago, she gave me a lot of japan snacks. I’m in heaven, when i received it from her. You are the best best-friend lol. And my other bestie also will go to Japan for work. So i’m going to received another stuffs again from Japan from my second bestie haha kidding!

Life is boring without sweet foods, but at the same time we need to lessen it. Just one cheat day per week is okay.

Ben’s Halo Halo

I had a date with my bro last Thursday night after we went for a grocery. He mention this small restaurant that served the best halo halo near in our place, that you only need to drive for about 20 mine. Amazing right? We could messed up our diet every time we are in the mood lol. For bro he told me that he likes their halo halo. It is one of the best halo halo that h I tried. So i was so excited to try it and wait for one week before he would take me to the place.

Next to the Ben’s halo halo resto, there’s a barbecue resto as well. It’s unli barbecue according to bro, i haven’t try it but he did already with his friends. Ben’s resto place is just a small. But i like the design inside their resto, you could read some inspiration quotes about sweet foods. Outside the resto, there’s some table and chairs since their place is just small. But i prefer it to be outside cause i love the fresh outside.

Their halo halo is just only 90 pesos which is nice, and they served it not that small. The taste is not too sweet, and the ice is just too small and soft (i think? Lol) and easy to crash it while you mix all the ingredients. I really loved their ube and leche plan. It is one of the ingredients that really make the halo halo taste better. They also served other foods like pasta, sandwich, and other filipino desserts.

I will definitely go back here and eat their halo halo again and try their pasta. I haven’t done any food review. I’m going to try other foods as well next time.
