It’s 2018. For the last few years since I learned putting makeup, I had been on the hunt for Philippine-made, or Philippine-based makeup, because I want to spend on affordable and locally-made products. As if that isn’t enough, I am transitioning to a cruelty-free and ethical-based mindset. Before 2016, all I can gawk and invest […]Read more "Current Favorites, pt 1: Ellana Cosmetics Iris Face Brushes!"
Just to clarify, I had done this once and back in 2018. I have managed to use this up and have long just put it on my personal ‘disposal’/expired storage. Makeup and skin care has shelf lives so I did it once on that particular item only. Please do your research when making a DIY […]Read more "Reusing Cushion Compacts: my ‘ingredients’, experience and what I really think of it + mini-reviews!"
For this review, I’ll be focusing on sunscreen! I am a big enthusiast for sunscreens, but in my youth I definitely wasn’t. Only in my late teens, around 19 years, did I finally take sun protection, but it would take years more before I finally took it seriously. It’s been a decade since I learned […]Read more "CosRx Shield Fit All Green Comfort Sun sunscreen: A Review"
Careline is a local Filipino brand that has been around as far back as I can remember. Alongside Ever Bilena, another long-time brand, Careline has gone through a lot of changes since their debut in 2005. However, they remain to be the makeup brand for teenagers and being budget-friendly, and with the expansion of Blythe […]Read more "Careline blushes: A Review"
We have seen an influx of ‘reboots’ lately, especially kids/general audiences’ shows that long ended more than a decade ago, and the generally negative reaction towards these works. And I understand. I have a confession to make: I’m a gamer (no that’s not the confession) and…I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the ‘reboot’ version of the Devil […]Read more "REBOOT ‘reBo0tS’: Why reboots are bad and how they don’t have to be (a venting post)"
The first European branded skin care and the most expensive I’ve had is from France’s Nuxe Paris. I got a taste of their items back in 2018 and came to the conclusion that at least I get to try their products, but personally wouldn’t come back to their brand again (spoiler). By the way, I’ve […]Read more "Nuxe Paris’ Brightening Moisturizing Lotion: A Review"
Hello there! Coming in with another Filipino-made/local product from ‘The Good Goods’ brand. I’ve only ever encountered them back in Pasay’s S’Maison Mall, connected to SM MOA. I will say that I got this back in 2018 and had forgotten to post a review of it back when the stall was active and when I […]Read more "The Good Goods Micellar Water: A Review"
Human Heart Nature is among the Filipinos’ staple brands and which I personally really admire for their mission for cruelty-free, 90%+ vegan and ethical standards for finding their resources, ingredients and particularly workers, who are from the impoverished class, all locally-sourced and grown. I also admire the variety of products: skin care to repellents, they […]Read more "Human Heart Nature Radiant Grace Night Cream Review and Formula Comparison"
I’ve got two reviews for technically one product in this post. It’s Human Heart Nature’s Hydrating Creamy Wash in Moringa, an affordable face wash which comes in their regular size and a small travel size. They’ve repackaged it to a new bottle, reformulated the product and added more in the new one. I got mine […]Read more "Human Heart Nature’s OLD vs NEW Moringa Creamy Face Wash"
Hey, sorry it’s been so long since I updated. But no more moping around. I want to start with this one, especially since I finished the bottle.It’s V&M’s Eternal Pearl Pore-Perfecting Face Creme For Luminous Glow. It’s a Philippine-made product from V&M, a cosmetics, skin and bath care brand that’s for ladies and gentlemen.It’s Pros: […]Read more "V&M Eternal Pearl Face Creme: A Review"
I finished this product quite a long time ago now and saved my thoughts on this. I will say the price for this is WAY HIGH that I’ve forgotten to notate that when I had it and, most importantly, for just needing a good moisturizer. Since it’s been a few years now, the price point […]Read more "Sea of Spa labs Bio Marine day moisturizer review"
