VMV: ReReview: Superskin 3 Toner and Moisturizer.

If you backtrack my blog through the years, you'll see that I've been a fan of their products... but not their prices. Such that though it pained my heart, I stopped buying since it hurt my wallet.

However, during one of their sales ages ago, I decided to buy again during one my bad face days....

And some things change, some things stay the same.

UCC Variety Pack Review

Whenever someone in the family travels, I am grateful when they return with a new drink for me to try. Last family member who travelled came back with a UCC variety pack.

Naturally, when I saw there was a piece of blue mountain coffee, I tore into it and claimed it for myself.

Belo Sunexpert Tinted Sunscreen

I have been using this product on and off for the past 6 months, granted more off than not. Last month, I saw it exploding across youtube as a possible foundation... and since it IS tinted, then you can probably use it as a foundation with sheer coverage (idk why that was even a question).

However, can you really use it as a sunscreen (as its name so blatantly states)?

The Shelf: June 2018

Sans the face stuff, this is basically what I've been using for my body...

Not the best things in life, but not bad either.

Travelling Tip: Leave On Conditioner

I've seen people recommend bringing Leave On Conditioner in lieu of styling products. But if you are a lazy girl like me, consider bringing it INSTEAD of your ordinary conditioner!

Am  I crazy?

The Daily Look: Ellana Lip in Luxe Love is Noble

The daily look this June 2018:

I've talked about my brow products before. I've been using Snoe's What's Up Brown in Khaki and The Face Shop's Designing Eyebrow Pencil in 05 Dark Brown.

What's basically changing in my routine is my lip. Now that it's constantly raining, I've found myself using a darker, matte lip. Right now, I'm using one of Ellana's liquid lippies in Love is Noble.

Travelling Tip: Shampoo and Body Wash

I am not the only one that does this, but it deserves some consideration in this era of super specialized products. When travelling, consider using the same shampoo and body wash to save the hassle of packing a lot of stuff!

I do this for both long trips away from home and short ones. For the former, I use a bottle of shampoo I know to be good at cleaning but not stripping to the hair and body and smells good. For the past year, I have been using both the red and purple versions of Hana shampoo. This is the purple one, Garden Blooms and Lychees.

It is even better for short trips with sachets. I use one a day and it's great because I don't like keeping them for later use. Using 1 sachet for the whole body is better than 1 sachet for 2 and 1/2 uses as shampoo of some sort.

Of course, I just buy the bottles which come with sachets as part of the purchase since I am not much into purchasing sachets. :D The price of 200ml of product is around P150-180 and usually can be found with a lot of sachets as a freebie.

Personal Care Acne Control Treatment Pads

Currently out of town and I realized that I just emptied this without talking about it!

So before I throw it out, here are my thoughts regarding these pads:

Nivea Sun Protect & White Whitening Sun Protection Face Cream

I'm sorry, I tried my best to like you but I really can't.

Maybe it's you, maybe it's me, maybe we're just not meant to be.

Massive Sun Protection Post

Since it's summer, it's only right to post a lot about sun related products and reminders. This is one of the latter: Guys, regarding sunscreen, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends 3 things:

1. SPF 30 or higher
2. Broad spectrum
3. Water resistant

But why and what else?

FYI, you can just end here (check out the beautiful infographic by informationisbeautiful).

An Empty and a Bit: Bare Lotions in Rosemary and Green Tea

A long time ago in a post far, far away from the top, I reviewed a conditioner by Bare, which I enjoyed. Better than that though, is their key product:


I actually reviewed a lotion mix by Bare before this but this is a bit more in depth.

Banana Boat Ultra Protect Faces Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50

Last week, I posted on why I disliked Beach Hut's sunblock. I was glad that I wasn't a complete leech and brought my own facial sunblock! Banana Boat's Ultra Protect Faces Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 was the sun protector I used during my last provincial trip and this is what I've found.
