CESA SKIN

I was first acquainted with this homegrown after-beach care brand called CESA Skin last year. I was hesitant to use it at first because my skin easily reacts to exfoliation even if it is mild. But after one use, I found myself using the Cesa Skin after-sun scrub and cooling soap even if I didn’t come from swimming or sun exposure because our weather is crazy-HOT! You probably find this brand familiar because of my CESA swimsuit OOTD post last year. The packaging is neat and chic so it’s something that I’m easily attracted to buy. The CESA Skin Body Scrub (P350.00)Read more

Cathy Doll Whitening Sunscreen SPF50 PA+++ Review

Are you tired of hiding under a big floppy hat during summer, especially at the beach? Afraid of the sun or conscious about your bare skin? Then Cathy Doll’s Whitening Sunscreen is the product that you’ve been waiting for. I’ve heard of Cathy Doll long before it hit our local counters because I frequently fly to Bangkok.

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.

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
