Etude House Brush Shower Cleaner Review

Last week, I was on a 3 day juice cleanse and it was driving me NUTS whenever I smelled food so I locked myself at home and made a list of things to do so I’d stay productive. #1 on my list would be to clean my makeup brushes with this Etude House Brush Shower Cleaner. (P428.00/250mL or P648.00/ 500mL) The product is pretty potent so you only need a small quantity to clean a single dirty brush. This oval brush is also from Etude House and I’ve been using it with liquid foundation for over a month of no cleaning.Read more

Yosi Samra 2.0

Yosi Samra — a New York brand that is well-known worldwide for its comfortable ballet flats and effortless style has elevated their quality to a whole new level this 2017. I passed by the SM Aura Premier branch to see and test out if Yosi Samra 2.0 is indeed more comfortable than the old one. Although I have never owned the old version of YS before, my friends that bought one after seeing my pair said that there is a HUGE difference with the sole. It is also way more comfortable than the leather ballet flats that I own likeRead more

Sunscreen For All Seasons: Physiogel Daily Defence

Whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall… One thing remains in my skin care routine and that’s Physiogel Daily Defence sunscreen. We might not have winter in the Philippines but since I travel a lot, I get to use the two types of moisturizers in this line to protect my skin from the harmful rays of the sun or pollutants of whichever city I’m flying into. I never travel without it; if I realize that I’ve forgotten it on the way to the airport, I’d turn back to get it from the house. It’s just as important as my passport!Read more

Paradise Dynasty : Best Xiao Long Bao in Manila

It’s hard to impress someone like me when it comes to dining because I love to try all the best restaurants whenever I’m traveling to a new country. I feel like there are only a few outstanding restaurants in Manila despite the numerous number of establishments opening left and right. I did not expect to be blown away by the food when I was invited to Paradise Dynasty because I’ve never heard of it before and I wasn’t able to try it on my last trip to Singapore. But damn, they have the best Xiao Long Bao in Manila. InRead more

Watsons K-Beauty

Long before Korean drama addiction began in the Philippines, I was already hooked with Korean skincare. It all started when I visited Korea back in the early 2000’s and I fell in love with Etude House. Since then, I would always bug friends and family to bring home Korean makeup and skincare whenever they fly to Seoul. But now, it’s so convenient to buy my preferred brands because most of these Korean products are already available in our local stores and most of them can be found in the Watsons K-Beauty section! With the booming popularity of K-Beauty, Watsons is curatingRead more
