Physiogel Daily Defence Apple Experiment

I’m sure you’re wondering, “What does an apple have to do with skin care?”. Well, I tried out an experiment to see the difference of using the right sunscreen brand VS a cheaper face cream. I’m currently using Physiogel Daily Defence with SPF 15 so I’ll use that and a moisturizer that I bought from the drugstore. You can try it out yourself by preparing the following items: Physiogel® Daily Defence Protective Day Cream Light SPF 15 Any facial cream for comparison (I’ll call mine “Brand X”) Apple Knife STEP ONE: Cut the apple into half, revealing two equal innerRead more

Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Collection

Brands nowadays are getting more competitive with product launches. Sometimes I feel like it’s getting quite routinary already so I always look forward to creative events that can spice up my day. AGC surely threw us an afternoon party that we’ll never forget when they launched the Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Collection. That’s right, the Korean cosmetics brand launched a makeup and skincare line with super kawaii packaging inspired by these gentle giants! Not only was the collection in full-Panda mode, all the guests were also dressed up in Panda onesies! It’s my first time and probably the only timeRead more

Physiogel Daily Defence Range Launch

I just got back from a 5-day trip to Bangkok and as usual, the weather was as hot as its food! It was a business trip so I had to move around a lot. The cab drivers there aren’t exactly friendly so I prefer to take long walks on their BTS (train) skywalk. There are a lot of similarities between the streets of Bangkok and Manila especially with the presence of messy side street vendors, pollution and terrible traffic (*yet, I still keep coming back for the amazing food, shopping and culture*) so I keep myself protected with Physiogel’s first-everRead more

What Makes An #EverydayStrong Woman

What makes an #EverydayStrong woman, you ask? The three main qualities she must posses would be self-confidence, determination and wit. Having self-confidence gives one a great personality that is ready to face the world. We need to be proud of what we have and not let anything, especially the pressure of society, dictate how we act or how we should look like. Don’t apply makeup or dress well to impress people around you, do it to feel good about yourself. I’ve lived with sensitive skin my entire life but I’m lucky it’s in hidden places. It worsens whenever the season is changingRead 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
