Nanay Earth The Flowers and The Bees Premium Lotion – a review

Nanay Earth is an online Multiply shop that also sells natural products for the skin. They have facial masks, creams, lotions and soaps, most of the products contain emu oil. Having a good experience with emu oil-based products, I decided to try The Flowers & The Bees Premium Lotion after emptying a tub of Vanilla & Co. Whipped Buttercream.

Vanilla & Co. Organic Cocoa Whipped Butter and Whipped Buttercream – a review

Since my pregnancy, I’ve dreaded the day I’ll see stretchmarks in my tummy. So I searched for recommended products online and health and beauty stores until I zeroed in on Vanilla & Co.’s Organic Cocoa Whipped Butter. I chose cocoa butter because it’s a natural antioxidant that clears and smoothes the skin and is frequently used for treating dry skin and stretch marks. It has vitamin E that will be beneficial for my pregnant skin. I also considered trying out Shea Butter from another online seller but it’s too expensive, so I first tried the most affordable one.

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Balm – a review

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Balm ads and flyers caught my attention because I’m a sucker for natural looking lips or my-lips-but-better-shades. And the idea of long-wearing lip color is too hard to resist!

Ponds Pure White Deep Cleansing Foam with Activated Carbon – a review

Any Filipino teenager has been familiar and used any Ponds product at some point in their lives. It became a household name for beauty products, it’s a drugstore brand, it’s cheap and it delivers. But as years go by, we found and used other products, some are even expensive than Ponds. In the recent years, Ponds has evolved and from one variant, it released new range of products that cater to everyone’s special needs.

A recent TV commercial from Ponds shows the Ponds Pure White Deep Cleansing Foam with Activated Carbon. Activated carbon promises to remove deep-seated dirt and detoxify the skin from impurities. I wasn’t sold at the TV commercial but when I saw this product in the grocery with its sleek black packaging, I snagged a tube, yeah packaging counts!

New Cyleina Organics Soaps I’m using

As an expecting mom, I’m wary of not only what I eat but also on what I put on my skin. There are a lot of discussions on beauty products safe for pregnant women, some products to avoid are those containing salicylic acid, retinoids, atni-aging products, hair depilatories and hair dyes. Good thing products I’m using are mostly organic and natural, and now, I’m trying out other variants of Cyleina Organic Soaps that have more moisturizing properties to keep stretchmarks at bay.

Venus and Mars Lulur Soap – a review

I ordered Venus and Mars Lulur soap together with the Emu Mineral Lip Butter Tints. I’ve been wanting to try this soap ever since it was first launched in VnM’s Multiply shop but I find it impractical to order only just one soap. Fortunately, I was able to try this soap last month.

Ilog Maria products: Honey Propolis Shampoo and Royal Jelly Hair Oil

In my quest of organic shampoo, I tried using Honey Propolis shampoo from Ilog Maria. I’m also searching for a cure to my greying damaged hair due to consecutive years of hair rebonding. I wanted my hair to be free of chemicals by cutting it short and then use organic and natural hair products. After using Human Heart Nature shampoo and conditioner, I explored other options and found that Ilog Maria can now be ordered online.

Pureglow Emu Mineral Lip Butter Tints – a review

Venus and Mars has come a long way from just selling emu oil-based soaps, they now have emu-oil based cosmetics and a mineral make-up line called Pureglow. I’m a fan of their Emu Lip Detox, a lip balm that does not contain petroleum jelly, but still keeps my dry lips moisturized throughout the day. Venus and Mars’s sister site, Pureglow, made the Lip Detox even better with Emu Mineral Lip Butter Tints.

G-lish Duo Foundation – a review

I’m a low-maintenance gal, I just use baby powder on my face and I’m fine. But whenever I’m on a rush in the morning for work, I don’t have time to allow my sunblock to set and to dry for additional minutes that’s why I apply baby powder after. This causes some powder to clump in some areas, unsightly and very childish. So I decided to buy a powder foundation I can use this summer. I previously used Neutrogena powder foundation but I want to try other more affordable brands.

G-lish has stalls in malls and their very pretty and girly kiosks made me check out their products. They have Duo Foundation in a very sleek all-white compact, reminds me of VMV packaging. It’s also very slim, perfect to slip in a girl’s small bag. The sales attendant said that when it’s time to buy the refill, they will replace the whole compact with a new one, just bring the old compact too. Pretty neat especially that the compact is white and it will really get dirty over time.

I got the Duo Foundation in Shade #10 for Php 300. The G-lish Duo Foundation claims to have SPF and oil control.

Etude House Lippies review

On my first Etude House visit, much of my haul are lip products. I don’t wear make-up, just powder, cheek tint and lipstick/lip balm and I’m set. I use mascara and eyeliner sometimes but no eye make-up for me. Anyway, let me review the lip products I bought from Etude House, Code B Dear Darling Ultra Firming Lips, Plumping Lip Tint, Apricot Stick and Dear Darling Lip Tint.
