10 Things Every Pink-Obsessed Person Must Own

I’ve always been attracted to all things pink ever since I was young. At one point I was ashamed to admit it because of the fear of being called ‘maarte’ or too girly by my sporty friends from our volleyball team. Eventually, when I graduated from highschool, I embraced the legally blonde girl in me and started to buy everything in pink. Here are the top 10 favorite pink items that you’ll find in my room: STILETTO 3M SCOTCH TAPE DISPENSER Before this was released locally, my BFF from the US sent me the black version of this (as seenRead more

Origins GinZing Peel-Off Mask Review

One of the skin care staples in my bathroom would be masks; tissue, hydrogel, leave-on, wash-off and peel-off masks – you name it and I’ve got it! The very first type of mask that I was able to use back in the 90’s was a peel-off type mask. My parents would make me peel it off their faces as our past time. I know, we’re weird, beauty addicts like that. Haha! The Origins GinZing Mask comes in two types – the refreshing face mask (clear) and the peel-off mask (metallic orange). I usually leave on the clear mask on my cleanRead more

LEADERS INSOLUTION Coconut Bio Masks Review

I am sharing one of my best-kept secrets as to how I am able to have flawless skin despite many factors like having a very stressful job (deadlines left and right daily), my bad habit of binge-eating on salty food & chocolates, being a heavy makeup user, trying on X new makeup and skincare almost daily and having little to no sleep most of the time. My best advice would be to drink as much water as you can throughout the day. But I’m sure everybody already knows that. What I do when I feel like my skin looks dull,Read more

Aesthetique Microdermbrasion Device & DIY Peeling Products I’ve Tried

The diamond peel gods have answered our prayers and sent us this do-it-yourself Mircrodermbration Device from Aesthetique Solutions. I know a lot of people are intimidated by diamond peel treatments because of the word ‘peel’ because that means having flaky skin and downtime after having it done. But the process is actually just having extremely mild abrasion on the skin to rid of dead skin on the most outer layer of our skin. It’s somewhat similar to getting a foot scrub – the nail tech uses a giant spatula nail file (sandpaper texture) to scrub off the dead and dryRead more

Etude House My Beauty Tool Secret Brush 121 & Play 101 Stick Contour Duo Stick Review

Contouring is your best friend when you have a round or square-shaped face like mine. It gives the illusion of a slimmer face and you can also use it to make your nose look sharper or define your cheek bones. Contouring can be tricky or hard for some but I found these two very easy to use tools at Etude House. The My Beauty Tool Secret Brush 121 Skin (P848.00) is an oval brush that can be used for both wet and dry application. It also has an interchangeable head so you can change the brush into a foam applicator.Read more
