Exfoliator for oily skin.

Exfoliator for oily skin.

I’ve been struggling with acne for the past 3 years, it started when I gained weight excessively back in 2015. It wasn’t that bad and I didn’t mind back then if I get breakouts or not. I’m a person that is only contented with just a facial soap, toner and a cream. Trust me, I was so lazy to follow beauty regimen and very inconsistent due to my studies but of course that is not an excuse. Looking good was not my priority πŸ˜‚. My pimples got worse when I had my OJT and my thesis study because I had sleepless nights but still I didn’t really mind. Until I looked myself in the mirror and felt like my face was totally a disaster. I had a lot of breakouts and dark spots which made me feel a bit insecure and I promised myself to fix it when I finished my studies. I used several products to minimize my breakouts and pimple marks but didn’t work out to my skin.

Recently, I found this Exfoliator from Avon as my mom has been a huge fan of avon since when I was just a little girl.

So I tried this Natural Lime Peeling Exfoliator to lessen my pimple marks. This product cost around $2.69 or 139 PHP. According to the description of this product this is an alcohol free, instant whitening and exoliates without irritating your skin. It can remove light make up and suitable to all types skin. Lime has citric acid that helps skin lighter.

Directions to use:

1. Apply a small amount all over dry face.

2. Massage gently in a circular motion all over face for 30 seconds to 1 minute until you see dead skin cells peeling off

3. Once you see the exfoliated dead skin cells, wash it off with water

I started using this Exfoliator for 2 weeks now and so far my pimple marks are fading. I used this every night as it is suitable to use everyday (Note: This is not my main regimen for pimples). I have an oily skin and get irritated easily whenever I touch my face without washing my hands. I felt fresh the first day I used this product and I didn’t feel greasy or sticky on my face. Usually I get really sticky whenever I’m sweating due to hot weather. And when it comes to peeling, it doesn’t lliterally peel your skin but it does scrubbed the dead skin on your face. I also noticed I have now less whiteheads and blackheads, my pores got smaller as well. I was a bit hesitant to buy this one because of the brightening part. I was a but hesitant to brightening part because I am not into brightening my whole face but so far only the pimple marks got lighten a little but not instantly. I would repurchased this one in the future.

Pros:

– Less oily face

– mild lime scent

– can help to reduce blackheads and white heads

– very good as a scrub

Cons:

No cons 😊

Closing..

This is only an honest review. This is not even a sponsored πŸ˜‚ I bought this product on my own money.

Beware of Fake Korean Products.

Beware of Fake Korean Products.

WARNING: Gallery contains graphic images that some readers may find disturbing.

Recently, there was a post from a teenager here in the Philippines that gone viral because of how a Fake Korean lip tint destroyed her beautiful lips. Before you purchase products online, make sure it is authentic and safe. I know a lot of people get really tempted to buy cheaper products but buying a very low quality products does it save more money?

Fake

The photo above is the fake Korean lip tint that were given to her as a gift last year that cost only $1 or 68 pesos. According to the owner, after 2 weeks of using the lip tint she noticed the tingling sensation and later on it got worse. According to the laboratory where these tints tested, the products contained bacterias which affected her lips.

OPINION:

Korean cosmetics has been popular all over the world, in fact South Korea is the biggest beauty market nowadays. I, myself has been obsessed by lip tints as well because in my opinion they are more convenient and easy to apply. I also decided to try Korean Lip Tint because I heard they are long lastin. I do have a lip tint same brand as Ms. Corda but I bought it for myself and spent almost $6 or 300 pesos (excluding the shipping fee). But mine is not fake, I bought this to an authorized seller that are has direct contact of the shop.

My Holy Grail

Closing.

Don’t be tempted with counterfeit or fake products. Especially if the products are for skin care, make up or anything that can goes directly into your system or body. I have few fake stuff but skin care, hygiene or cosmetics aren’t included. If you think you can spend less then you are wrong! Worst case scenario, you will spend more money if your health deteriorate by the products you intake or apply. Don’t waste your money! Be observant!

Super Blue Blood Moon (31-1-18)

Super Blue Blood Moon (31-1-18)

Earlier at 9:29 pm there was a Super Blue Blood Moon, it was so huge and beautiful. According to the reports, this lunar phenomenon was last seen in Philippines 36 years ago.

They say it would’ve been better if you are looking at the moon with someone you love lol how I really wish. I witnessed how huge the moon was and how creepy it is. While looking at it I thought “Oh gosh Dracula has risen” πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‚

A lot of people were excited because they were expecting that the moon would be blue. I did wish it was blue because I would probably be so amazed. Whilst looking at it, I decided to play the song blue moon by Frank Sinatra but then drunk men nearby ruined the moment haha πŸ˜‘.

Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

– Frank Sinatra

Longing Heart

Longing Heart

How my heart act this way,

it beats so fast like there’s no ending.

I can’t cry nor laugh, He’s inches away from me.

Finally, I’ve met the person that bothers me.

I can hear his breathe,

I can smell his scent,

I can see his breathtaking blue eyes,

I can hear his chuckles and I can finally hear his voice.

Who would’ve thought that I’d be in this heavenly moment.

Small things that make a girl feels like in heaven.

But now you’re thousand miles away,

my heart is longing to your embrace.

Xoxo,

Korean Style Diner for Pinoy Tongue.

Korean Style Diner for Pinoy Tongue.

Korean idols are known in Southeast Asian countries as well as K-dramas and K-variety shows. I am not a huge fan of K-pop but I am a fan of Korean variety shows. They have a lot of cooking shows that keeps your mouth watering. I started watching 3 meals a day and Running man in 2016. I know I am so late considering the fact that running man has a lot to catch on. Whenever the casts of these two program starts to eat Korean cuisine makes me feel like drooling LOL πŸ™‚ I know I am not the only one.

So yesterday, I was able to visit a Korean diner with my best-friends and of course we immediately checked the menu. I am familiar with TteOkbokki, Bulgogi, Kimbab and Kimchi soup but we did not try all the dishes.

We ordered…

  • TteOkbokki

The one that we had I believe is what they call Rabokki, the combination of ramen and tteokbokki (korean rice cake).

Rabokki

I have been craving for this. It tasted a bit sweet and spicy, you can choose whether you want it to be 2x hot or more but I chose mild as I want to taste and distinguish the texture of the Korean rice cake. It has cabbage leaves, spicy sauce, hard boiled egg and sesame seeds on top. It was perfectly cooked and heaven in my mouth πŸ™‚

  • Sam gyup Kimbap

KImbap is a rice roll like sushi. It has veggies on it with pork.

Kimbap

I was excited to try this out but I was not a big fan after one bite. It tasted a bit weird and I wanted to dip it with soy sauce, maybe because my tongue is not used to but I will try to have some next time.

  • Galbi

Though the Korean diner we went to did not use a Korean beef, still it was worth it. The one we had was a marinated pork and grilled it.

And the moment of truth, my mouth was watering during the grilling time LOL it was so good though and I couldn’t get enough. It is good when the rice and galbi with hot pepper paste on top is wrapped with lettuce and eat the whole thing. Trust me, it is a bomb! πŸ™‚

Thoughts..

Hmm who doesn’t love to eat :). Regardless of some of the ingredients that were used for these delish meals aren’t originally from South Korea, I am satisfied although I did not try all their menu but there’ll be next time. I would love to try some Indian food in the future.

That’s all for now.. God bless!

Xoxo,

My first English song that I learned.

My first English song that I learned.

I’m speechless and shocked at the moment. I just don’t know what to react, whilst writing this probably you heard the breaking news that Dolores O’riordan passed away. I grew up with The Cranberries songs and Zombie was a big hit in the Philippines back in 90’s. I remember when I was just 4-5 years old the only word that I can correctly pronounced was the Zombie, and of course Dolores was admired by many including myself. My dad had cassette tapes of the cranberries before and would listen to their music everytime he’s at home. It’s totally shocking. She’s one of the favorite that never fades. I’m still amazed of her powerful voice until today.

My condolences goes out to the family and fans out there πŸ’”.

RIP Dolores. πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”
