Belo SunExpert Review | Soak Swimwear OOTD

The extremely hot weather in Manila only means one thing…. It’s time to pack your sunscreen and swimsuits because summer is officially here!! To kick off this season, let me share my review of the Belo SunExpert line and their latest products. I booked multiple trips to Boracay this summer with different set of groups and didn’t realize that I’ll be staying for about half a month in the island! Dream come true! <3 That’s why I’ve fully prepared myself as early as now by stocking up on these sun care products from Belo. My favorite would be this Belo SunExpert UltragentleRead more

Just Jewels: How People See You When You Wear Gold Jewelry

You are a sophisticated dresser. Accessories are for girls, while jewelry is for ladies. Punctuating an ensemble with the right gold jewelry pieces elevates the look to a new level. When styled properly, these dazzling accents can transform an otherwise bland outfit to something more exciting and a lot more sophisticated. Some of the most effective pieces that create this effect include a diamong ring, a gold bangle and a statement necklace. You work hard. Gold is not considered a precious metal for nothing. It is recognized for its intrinsic value and for the many uses it offers across industriesRead more

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

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

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

RIOT Makeup Brush Set | My Current Makeup Faves

I recently discovered this posh but very affordable makeup brush brand called RIOT BRUSHES on Instagram. It was started by a very young entrepreneur named Rya Petines because of all the expensive and imported makeup brush sets that most beginner beauty junkies can’t afford. So lo and behold, she created this Riot Girl Complete Set for only P2,500. (Tip: She has special discounts for students!) It includes the following (15) brushes: Powder Brush Angled Flat Top Kabuki Paddle Foundation Brush Angled Brush Flat Contour Fan Concealer Buffer Angled Liner Smudge Brush Bullet (crease) Brush Blending Brush Pencil Brush Shader AngledRead more
