Laneige White Plus Renew Bubble Cleanser review

Laneige is one of my fave Korean skin care brand ever since I tried their Snow BB Cream. Laneige products are not as affordable like Etude House, Tony Moly, etc. but based on reviews, it’s one of best Korean brand especially when it comes to skin care. So when my friend Czjai held a pre-order when she went to Seoul a few months ago, I ordered the Perfect Renew line which I will review on my succeeding post.

Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Touch of Spice

I was at SM Mall of Asia yesterday and I passed by the beauty section, and ladies, you know what happened next. *wink* It’s a lippie swatch fest for me whenever I’m in the make-up section and I swatched the new Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks. I said I won’t buy another lipstick until I finished a tube but this changed my mind.

Belo Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid soap review

I’m adventurous when it comes to whitening soaps, I think I’ve tried quite a number of them in the market. It’s not because I want my skin to be fair, but I just want some parts like my arms which are exposed to the sun, elbows, and knees to be even. So when Belo launched it’s Intensive Whitening Bar, I just had to try.

Kojie San Kojic Acid and Dream White soaps – a review

I think my skin is getting immune on my current whitening soaps that’s why I need to switch brands. Here’s a story on why I discovered Kojie San Kojic Acid soap. I noticed that our helper’s skin lightened, she has been with us for just around 3 months. She’s from the province and her skin is not that fair. So I was surprised that her skin lightened, of course, I have to ask her what soap she uses. She said Kojie San Kojic Acid Soap. I then bought Kojie San soaps come the next day because it’s already proven effective by our helper, :p

Laneige Snow BB Cream – a review

Part of my beauty haul in HK is this Laneige Snow BB Cream SPF 42/PA++ in #2 Natural. I always pass by the Laneige store which is just around the vicinity of our hotel and one night, the staff volunteered to test the BB cream on me. I’m not fair-skinned so I got hopeless in finding BB creams that will match my skin tone. So anyway, I was told that Laneige Snow BB Cream only has 2 shades: #1 Brightening and #2 Natural. The staff both tested the 2 shades and suggested that Natural looks best for my skin tone (as expected :p).

I was easily convinced so I walked out of the store with a new BB cream. It is priced at HKD 260 (around Php 1,300++ when converted), I inquired at Laneige in Trinoma and it’s around Php 1,700.

Snoe White Soap No. 3 – a review

Another local beauty brand is added on my list, and its name is Snoe. The Snoe Poudre Extraordinaire is part of my daily beauty regimen. I also bought their Snoe whitening soaps to try. Since my primary concern is to whiten my skin, I chose Snoe White Special Kojic and Glutathione Combo Beauty Bar. Kojic and glutathione are known for their whitening properties so I chose this soap. This is also one of their bestsellers according to the staff.

Human Heart Nature Balancing Face Toner – a review

I love Human Heart Nature products! I love HHN mostly because it’s proudly Pinoy and it uses natural ingredients. I’m a fan of their shampoo and conditioner so I gave their facial washes and toner a try. I love all their facial washes, I enjoyed using them so much that I emptied the bottle that fast without making a review, hihi, maybe next time.

For now, here’s a review of Human Heart Nature Balancing Face Toner.

Maybelline Hypersharp Liner – a review

Liquid eyeliners seem to be a must-have in everybody’s kikay kits these days. Maybe because liquid liners can instantly transform your eyes dramatically. I’m a fan of eyeliners and I use the pencil-types since college  (my version of an eye make-up consists of an eyeliner+mascara). On my recent Sasa escapades in Hong Kong, I was confused with all the varieties of liquid liners from Japanese brands, waterproof, etc…

One of the most affordable liquid liner I got is this Maybelline Hypersharp Liner in Intense Black.

Tony Moly Tony Tint in Red Apple – a review

My first lip and cheek tint is Bench’s Pretty When Pinched, it’s a purple color but gives off a reddish tint when applied on cheeks. Bench’s PWP has been in my kikay kit back in college. A few months back, I bought Pretty When Pinched again for old time’s sake but got disappointed because it’s not that pigmented and doesn’t have the staying power like their old formulation.

So I decided to try a new brand, this time with Tony Moly. I asked the SA for their lip and cheek tint and she gave this Tony Tint. It comes in two shades, Red Apple and Cherry Pink. Unfortunately, Cherry Pink is sold out. I bought the Red Apple for Php 278, I don’t have anything to compare with anyway.

I’ve been using this for months hence the beaten up packaging
