Drugstore Micellar Water Review: Biore, Garnier, L’Oreal & Nivea

If you’re a busy (and a lazy) girl like me then micellar water is your best friend. It’s cheap, hydrating and it removes dirt and makeup in an instant. I wished I have known micellar water when I was in 1st-year residency, a period when my skincare routine is non-existent. But now I can’t live without it, I have a bottle in my house, in my condominium unit, in the hospital and in my travel/duty bag.

So for this post, I’ll review four popular drugstore micellar cleansers in the Philippines. Criteria for this review are affordability, ingredients and performance as a cleanser. As for ingredients, I’ll base this from CoSDNA, a site where product ingredients are analyzed for Comedogenic and Irritation (0-5) and Safety index from (1-9). The lower the number the better.

What’s in my Travel Makeup Bag: Cambodia

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 »

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.
