Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream Review

I have seen this fancy blue cream all over the internet especially in the AsianBeauty Community and it got me really curious. At that time I was looking for a night-time moisturiser, and although this was supposed to be a calming cream I thought that this might pass as a good moisturizer, hence an order was placed.

Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream

Product Description: A gentle spot treatment cream that provides comfort to rapidly calm & soothe sensitivity. Powered by nature, its star ingredients are Guaiazulene, a natural component extracted from chamomile oil, which carries powerful skin calming abilities, and Centella Asiatica, which helps hydrate and relieve redness.

Packaging:  This is probably one of the most photogenic creams I’ve seen.  It’s popular in #ABcommunity and #TextureTuesdays posts on Instagram. Who couldn’t resist on photographing the elegant glass packaging and the periwinkle colour of this cream? Also, this comes with a nice spatula for application.Read More »

Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Botanical Peony Review

Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence is my ultimate Holy Grail sunscreen. I do not leave the house/ condo without putting this on. So when I found out that Bioré released a limited edition last Spring in Japan I did not have any second thoughts, I immediately purchased it.

The Face Shop Watery Tint Review

Hello, guys, I’m back! My schedule is crazy, I’m mostly on duty during weekends and I have to recuperate during the weekdays, so basically I’m still adjusting to my new schedule. I do promise to keep up with my blog and follow a feasible blogging schedule.
The Face Shop Watery Tint

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Review

I’m not a fan of mascaras because I already accepted that my short, straight and stubborn lashes are hopeless. Even the cult fave Shu Uemura curlers can only provide a temporary fix for my lashes. Although I wasn’t blessed with long and full lashes, I rely on falsies when I needed the extra drama. But there are days that I don’t have much time to put on false eyelashes that’s the time I resort to mascara. My favourite mascara is Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara. As for drugstore mascara, I haven’t found the right one. I have tried some but it did not work for me. It only end up in my shelf only to be disposed after a few months when it have dried up.
L'Oréal Paris Lash Paradise Mascara

There has been a hype over the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara last year and also early this year when Lash Paradise was finally available in the Philippine Market. I got curious so I picked up one: the Waterproof Blackest Black during a trip to the department store.

Product Description: Take your lashes to paradise! Our 1st mascara for volume & length. Soft wavy bristle brush holds maximum formula for a dramatic volumizing charge. 200+ bristles catch every lash for a full fringe effect. Smooth glide formula provides silky volume in one coat. Lashes are feathery soft to the touch. Women agreed: 91% saw intense & volumized lashes and 87% saw more beautiful lashes. +98% lengthening effect.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Review

The worse thing than the unbearable summer heat is the sticky feeling of my makeup melting and sliding down my face. Even though most of the makeup products I’m using are relatively long-lasting, sometimes there are just limits to their longevity. That’s why I felt the need to resort to setting spray. If there’s a product that could make my makeup last the entire day without any touchups, I’ll definitely try it. When it comes to setting sprays it, (based on reviews), it seems like Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray is the gold standard. Let’s see what’s the fuss is about…

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Product Description: Is makeup meltdown ruining your midnight mojo? Mist on this weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power. Developed in an exclusive partnership with SKINDINÄVIA, this groundbreaking, clinically tested formula is suitable for all skin types and features patented Temperature Control Technology.

Korean Sheet Masks Haul

I love K-Beauty but I do not have the time for their 10 step skincare routine. But I do love their sheet masks; they’re cheap, effective and fun to use. When I was reviewing for my diplomate board exam, my idea of relaxation is a 15-minute sheet mask study-break while watching PONY syndrome make-up tutorials on YouTube. I did it every day for almost a month and boy my skin looked really great during the day of my exam. There are so many sheet masks in the market but these are my top picks:

#5 TONYMOLY I’m Real  Makgeolli Mask Sheet Skin Purifying
TONYMOLY I'm Real  Makgeolli Mask Sheet Skin PurifyingWhat it does: Makgeolli mask makes uneven skin tone look radiant and glowing.
What I love about this: I love the I’m Real sheet masks collection from TonyMoly, especially their cute packaging. Makgeolli a.k.a. Korean rice wine contains amino acids and vitamins that supposedly help brighten the skin.Read More »
