Product Revew: Chu Lip

Chu Lip
I first came across this trendy Japanese lip balm called Chu Lip during our visit in Tokyo. My sister and I couldn't resist its cute design so each of us bought one for ourselves! Unlike a regular lip balm, it's bigger and rounder. It comes with a variety of flavors. They have a fruity smell, which we both love! They are all colorless. This product does a great job on keeping my lips moisturized. Since it's bigger than a regular lip balm, it can last for several months. We loved it so much that we bought another one on our next visit to Japan!

Product Review: The Face Shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream

The Face Shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream
BB cream has been a part of my routine since it became a hype. BB cream got me covered during the many mornings when I am in a hurry. It's a great starter product if you're hesitant to try heavy duty makeup. It is also great for lazy girls who want to look good minus the hassles. If you're still not a BB cream user, why don't you give it a try?

In this post, I am going to give my impressions about a BB cream I've purchased months ago. My old BB cream, The Face Shop Face It Aqua Tinted BB Cream, was already used up. I was planning to purchase it again but the store ran out of the light beige shade. Instead of going home empty-handed, I bought another product from the same line, The Face Shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream. Unlike the Aqua Tinted BB cream, Power Perfection BB cream comes in two sizes. The larger size is a bit more expensive than my previous BB cream so I bought the smaller size (I was feeling very frugal). Let's see how this product fares.

Product Review: Laneige Light Balancing Emulsion

I"ve been using Jason Natural Soothing 98% Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel for my daily skin care routine. In general, it works fine, but the texture is too tacky for my liking. So I decided to go to the mall to hunt for a new moisturizer. I decided to go for a bit high-end type of product, so I chose Laneige Light Balancing Emulsion, which has many positive reviews across the net. However, the emulsion is supposed to be applied before the moisturizer, which is being sold separately. Knowing that Korean skincare routine requires tons of products (FYI, Laneige is a Korean product) as compared to my preferred routine, I neglected to buy the moisturizer as a combo to this. Instead, I would just use the emulsion as my sole moisturizer.

My New Dermatologist and Some Updates

Early this January, I decided to visit a new dermatologist. I had previous experiences with a dermatologist. Although I saw a lot of improvements after those visits, I realized how costly it could get for maintenance. Simply put, my original dermatologist caters to well-off patients. Each tiny bottle of skin care product costs 300-400 pesos. His cleaning sessions alone costs 800. I just didn't feel I was getting a great value for my money.

Acne, Air Pollution, Poor Diet, and Suggested Solutions

Source: Danilo Rizzuti |
Lately, I've been having serious acne flare ups on the face and I am not proud of it. It must be the air pollution or the poor diet I'm having. For some reasons, the vehicles passing by our neighborhood has increased, making dark smogs to be a frequent sighting whenever I go outside home. Ice cream and dairy products have also become more frequent in my diet.

Ingredients that Whiten the Skin

Image Source: stockimages |
any women, especially in the country where I live, yearn to have a lighter complexion. We are constantly being bombarded by advertisements of these products to convince us that having a fairer skin is desirable. Thus, many whitening products exist in the market to address this demand. 

Several creams, lotions, soaps, BB creams, and other skin care products contain whitening agents that may or may not work. In this post, I will be giving you an overview about the different substances (arranged alphabetically) found in our products that are known to whiten the skin. I will keep adding to this list in the future so stay tuned!

The Danger Triangle of Your Face

I have a habit of popping my pimples despite hearing and reading several warnings against this. It is said that the act may infect the pimples and or leave permanent scars.

When the news about a boy getting hospitalized due to an infected pimple was relayed to me, at first I couldn't believe it. The "danger triangle of the face" sounds absurd and illogical. But research made it clear to me that it does exist.
