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.

K-Drama makeups

BLK released their new K-Drama makeups collection last April. If you buy the set with the box, you’ll get a 200 pesos discount in Lazada. I didn’t buy the whole set, cause I just wanted to buy these two products. Look at that.. their packaging are always cute. Every time I bought some of their product, I always keep the boxes lol.

The “Sweet lip duo” is a lips scrub, which helps your lips patches and can make your lips smooth. Decided to buy this one, I run out of lips scrub. It also have lip balm, I pick the shade of Snowdrop. The packing is cute, the design and with small mirror on it. It looks like a cute toy. But the lips scrub smells nice.

The “Creamy All-Over Paint” is a multi-purpose, that you can used on the cheeks and also to your lips. I tried using it on my cheeks, it’s easy to blend even if you already put a foundation on your face, it blends really well. I also tried using it as eyeshadow, it’s kinda hard to blend it or they have a technique on how you put this on. If it is on cheeks, it’s easier. It last longer on my cheeks. I pick the shade of Peony. I haven’t try it on my lips, i think i would prefer to used it on my cheeks. I’m planning to buy their new lipstick as well next month.

Nice BLK, I really love the Sweet Lip Duo. I hope that they will released more good products soon.

Korean bbq

Got a date with my childhood friend yesterday. It was unexpected! She invite me if i can eat with her at any Korean restaurant at the mall. What more surprising it was her treat, hard to say no right? I quickly said i’m on my way lol. I haven’t try a Korean grill restaurant before so it was my first time. A buffet but it’s not a totally full Korean food, they were mix it with Japanese and other cuisine from different countries. This time it is really a full Korean restaurant. They also sell some ice cream from Korean which is cool. I am mostly eating at French or Italian restaurant.

What i love is that sweet potato with honey on it? I am not sure if it is honey they mix, but it taste so great. Perfect after you eat some spicy food haha. Korean people always love spicy food even their noodles. I’ve noticed something if you eat with any Korean restaurant, if you want to drink water or iced tea their glass is.. not that really small but it’s cute haha!

And i didn’t know that i will be addicted watching a Korean drama last year lol. I was so hooked watching Goblin before.

This Korean restaurant also have a tv that let you watch some korean girlband or boyband music video, so i could really feel that i’m also a korean haha!

I also love that salad. It taste like a bagoong they put in it, but it’s not bagoong (bagoong – it is a filipino dip). Not that really spicy. And of course the Kimchi that not everyone loves to eat here in my country. It was fine for me. Korean food is still healthy just like the japanese.

Anyway i have fun yesterday, cause i haven’t hangout with my childhood friend for such a long time. Although two weeks ago i was in their house. I mean we haven’t seen each other for two weeks now lol. She also have reason why she wants to hangout, something about the result of her checkup. I would always listen to a friend if they needed someone to talk with.

I would love to go back on this restaurant again. Their price is affordable, the only problem is you have to wait and reserved a table first.

Hope you all have a nice weekend everyone!

New things for this month

Hi everyone! I noticed i have a new followers.. thank you for following me. I would try my best to update my blog every week. Last week i was been so busy and got many errands.

Two weeks ago i did some searching of new things to try, like i promise i would try new things every month as long as it’s not the expensive though haha. Did a little grocery and buy shower cap and bath ball. Lately i been so obsessed checking out a korean store lol. Even their food it’s so addicting also. Their store will always been a lots cute stuff and interesting. Since landmark building is recently open for a couple of months. You will also see some korean products.

I bought Ph care feminine wash, it smells really good. I guess if you want a fruity smell of feminine wash you could try Ph care.

And also for the skin care, i tried taking myra e. I don’t really know the difference now on my skin. I am not sure about the result if it is good or not. But yea it added a little glow on my skin. Maybe i needed more time to used it and tell the final result soon. The price is not that expensive with 30 capsules, so you could try it for a month.

The “Matcha Latte Tea Milk Tea” only have 80 calories. I keep this for like so many months. I have the box for about 4 months haha but only drink it sometimes. But later found out the benefits of Matcha. It can boost your immune system since it also have vitamin C and it can enhance your mood. And boost your metabolism and burn calories. Search all the benefits and started drinking it like twice a week in the morning. I could tell the difference, i am more energetic in the morning after drinking it, and helps me to workout well. The taste is a little weird but not bad thinking all of those benefits.

The “Belvita” cookies. It has a lot of vitamins that you really need in a day. You could eat this during breakfast, only this cookies and it’s fine. I try eating this in the morning with the partner of matcha latte milk tea. It really helps me to workout in the morning and give that nice mood to start up my day. But the only thing that i didn’t like is.. The box only have 4 packs of cookies. If you open one, it have 2 not quite big cookies. So in a box they only have 8 cookies. I wish they have more bigger box like 20+ cookies inside lol. But i decided to stop only buy two box of this in every month, since the matcha latte really helps. I was taking care of myself even more for this past two months especially on my health. I think i’ve lost a little bit weight. That’s a good sign. Just needed to push it some more.

And i visit my dermatologist, i always buy one product from her. The cream is to whiten your skin and also have anti-aging too. One cream with two benefits. So you don’t need to put so much on your face. Kinda wanted to try korean skin care also haha! I have one korean skin care which is the aloe vera gel. I already blog it about it before. It doesn’t irritate my skin. My doctor also gave me two free products haha lucky for me. She gave me hand cream from Aveeno, i think that’s their new product. She gave me the sample product lol. But that’s okay i still feel thankful about it. And one product for acne. It’s a sample also. She is my friend also for more than two years, she would sometimes help me with my skin problem and i don’t have to pay for it haha! The benefits of having a doctor friend lol.

I forgot to blog about my eyebrow mascara that i bought from my Maybelline two months ago. It can really volumized your eyebrows. The price is a quite expensive, but not bad. And Maybelline have new products lately. Wanted to try some of them soon.

And i’ll be blogging about food next time haha! Just wanted to try different food lately.

Have a lovely day everyone! *hugs*

New things for this month

New things!

Trying out new things every month. I noticed every month i been buying new things like skin care or make up, since the new building of the mall here open few months ago. They have some more products interesting to buy, especially on that store that you can buy some stuffs for make up like brushes and some applicator to used for your powder compact. A lot of new stores open then.. and it’s up to you if you would want to buy or not but it’s tempting can’t help it sometimes haha!

I bought Cream Silk ultra conditioner for triple keratin rescue, i pick the ultimate straight which is the pink one. It is their new products.. Saw it from the commercial at first, i was so interested, since i never used that much on my hair. I try it two days ago, my hair became more smooth and easy to comb it and more shiny. What i really like about this is.. i like the fragrance it’s smells so good. Makes me want to smell my hair every time lol. But i’m also using Loreal damage treatment for hair every two weeks. The treatment can last on your hair for nearly two weeks. But it doesn’t have fragrance.

And the hand cream that i buy which is very affordable. You can buy it for only P100. The hand cream is not bad. It’s not sticky after you apply it on your hands. My hands became more smooth and i am not sure if it’s shiny. According on the packaging it will also make your hands shiny lol. I’m sure it will make your hands more smooth, but again it doesn’t have any fragrance haha! Before i am using body shop hand cream it’s a bit expensive but it has benefits on your finger nails also.

Going back to draw regularly for at least once a week haha! So i bought a new sketchbook which is really cute, you can also used it as a journal. I needed a.. not so small sketchbook. I have a bigger sketchbook and a small one too. The smaller one was running out of page now. I did really good on drawing last year though lol cause there’s only few pages left haha! I am thinking of using my only favourite medium on this new sketchbook, maybe pencil and ball-pens. Hmmm yea maybe i can used different colors of ball-pens then.

Phew so many stressed things haha! But still going in life. Guess when someone leave.. someone better is coming! I’m glad too. And i couldn’t believe there’s was something exciting to look forward next year omg can’t wait. I’ll tell it next on my blog.

Have a lovely day everyone *hugs*.

New things!

Girly things

The last lipstick that i bought is a little failed not smooth on lips and heavy also. I’m sorry BLK, i still love the Sleek Matte lip cream. So smooth on lips and not heavy and more lasting, cannot easily remove even when you eat and brush your teeth. I always been choosing the nude shade like my Sissy says “classy” lol. I have the shade of Birthday Suit their best selling shade, and the latest that i buy is Bittersweet shade a little darker also one of their best seller. You can wear this shade on any occasion.

Also i buy dress for summer haha! The dress color is blue (sorry a bit lazy to take a pic on it) and flowers print on it. I’ll be wearing this dress on sunday, our family and bro’s wife family will be bonding together to a resort. So i am bit busy this week for the preparation. (This will be posted on scheduled so it was a week late now lol).

I am using Kinepin Cotton Pads now for my toner, i am not using ordinary cotton anymore. You can save up your toner lotion if you are using this. And this is more affordable, it has 160pcs cotton pads, you can used it for about two months. I’m trying out some new stuffs lately, supposed not to buy Wax sugar yesterday haha! Went to watch Deadpool yesterday with friends and we are rushing up a bit cause of the time. My plan is actually to go to a waxing salon after watching the movie haha but i’m pretty sure the mall is closing after the movie, so i decided to buy this. I need a little effort for myself on this lol. Alright i’m gonna wax on Saturday before we will go to resort.

And the coffee scrub that i am using is also nice.. it can make your skin so smooth, reduce your cellulites a little, and improve your blood circulation. I’m using this for two years now! It is one of my favorite products, it is organic and locally made so it’s affordable. Lip scrub is also organic.. it exfoliates and lighten your lips color.

Yes girl! Never forget to pamper yourself. It’s been a bit hard these days. But that’s okay.. only few more days before closest friend is back from his trip. Time is really slow when you are waiting haha!
