Benton Snail Bee Ultimate Hydrogel Eye Patch Review

So here’s the tea.. me and my boyfriend broke up after I got back from my trip to Australia. I hate to admit it but I cried incessantly for days following the breakup. (So much for sharing my personal life haha). There’s no use in denying my sobbing episodes because my eyes got really, really swollen and puffy. It was very timely that Benton had sent this tub of Hydrogel Eye patch for me to try.

Product Description: Snail Bee Ultimate Hydrogel Eye Patch hydrates and nourished skin with Saccharomyces/Snail Secretion Infiltrate Ferment Filtrate, Bee Venom and seaweed extracts. The hydrogel eye patch vitalizes and refreshes skin, living the eye area bright and supple.

COSRX Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun SPF 50+ PA+++ Review

G’day, mate! I just got back from my trip from Sydney and also from my major hiatus from the blogging world. I got really busy after my European trip late last year that I was not able to keep up with beauty blogging. I was about to abandon my blog, but then I realized even though I stopped posting for a long time I still got readers viewing some of my skincare reviews– so I think that’s a reason enough to continue blogging.

Summer is already here in the Philippines and I just got run out of my Biore sunscreen, so yeah I need to get a new one. I have been loyal to Biore for the past years so maybe it’s time to try out other sunscreens out in the market.

Product Description:

Essence-like light-weight texture!

Refresh your skin with snail mucin and rich humectant components which give the skin a petal-like, baby-skin soft finish.

Holy Grail Cleansing Oil? DHC Deep Cleansing Oil Review

I am one of those people who used to believe that cleansing oils are not for oily people. I love micellar water too much that I never thought I’d be using other products to remove dirt and makeup until I have to remove most stubborn mascara ever. So I googled the best cleansing oil and based on several lists on the internet, I have encountered the Japanese brand DHC several times. An online store even pointed out that it’s the Holy Grail of cleansing oils. So maybe this is really something, let’s see…

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

Product Description: An olive oil–based facial cleanser that dissolves makeup thoroughly with zero residue. Its nutritive formula effortlessly breaks down stubborn, waterproof mascara and eyeliner and emulsifies into a cleansing milk when you rinse. Great for removing excess oil and sunscreen, it’s a daily must-have even if you don’t wear makeup. Your skin will feel soothed, refreshed, and balanced. One try is all you need to see why millions of women swear by it.

편강 율 Pyunkang Yul Acne Line Review

I first heard about Pyunkang Yul when Gothamista raved about it in her youtube channel. Not long after, I’ve started seeing a lot of that gorgeous blue glass bottle packaging all over Instagram (I’m a sucker for blue packaging). I haven’t tried any of their products but I’ve heard a lot of positive reviews about it. Recently, they released their Acne Line and I was fortunate enough that StyleKorean picked me to try and review Pyunkang Yul’s new stuff.

Pyunkang Yul Acne Line

The entire line is composed of the following:

  1. Acne Facial Cleanser
  2. Acne Toner
  3. Acne Spot Cream
  4. Acne Cream
  5. Acne Dressing Mask Pack

For your reference: My skin type is oily and my face used to be acne-prone during my teens and early 20’s, good thing it already calmed down. Although my face cleared up, my acne on my back did not. I have tried cleansers and toners recommended by Dermatologists but my back acne never really went away.

What’s in my Travel Makeup Bag: Cambodia

psx_20180724_0944271945939947.jpg

If you read my previous post you already know that I visited Cambodia last month. The last time I went to Cambodia was eight years ago, but we only visited Phnom Penh and skipped Siem Reap. Of course, I have to come back for Angkor Wat. Given that it was raining hard the whole month of July in the Philippines, I’m not sure what to expect with regards to Cambodia’s weather.

Because I was there for only less than three days I only packed a few things. Most of the products I packed with me are my daily essentials. Here are the products I brought:Read More »

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.

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.
