Fernberry Daily Body Scrub Review - Their Moisturizing Mousse Ultra-Fine Formula Works Wonders!

I have an addiction for body scrubs and for a good reason. Ever since I've hit my 30s, my normally supple and smooth skin has been prone to bouts of dryness that leads to dry skin patches. Of course that issue can be remedied with a good exfoliating body scrub and moisturizer but too much exfoliation can damage the skin...and I'm not really a fan of applying lotions. This is the reason why I was intrigued by the Fernberry Moisturizing Mousse Ultra-Fine Daily Body Scrub!


You see, from the name itself, the Fernberry Daily Body Scrub is gentle enough for everyday use. I have also seen and read a few reviews from all over the world saying that the scrub is really good. Thankfully I was able to try (ehem,they are on sale!) and OMG! The Fernberry Moisturizing Mousse Ultra-Fine Daily Body Scrub is worth every penny!

Beauty Treats of LA Makeup and Skincare Review - Here are Their Best Products!

A few months ago I talked about the soft relaunch of the Filipino makeup brand BTLA or Beauty Treats of LA here in the blog. Although I share some of my thoughts about their products in that post, I would like to share an update post and a more detailed review of their products with you guys.

Beauty Treats of LA Makeup and Skincare Review

The thing is, Beauty Treats of LA Makeup and Skincare are quite good, but they are virtually unheard of in the beauty community. I brought up liking the BTLA Pureskin Anti Acne cream to another beauty creator who they sent the same PR parcel to and she couldn't even remember them. I had to show her my IG post just so she could remember the products that she didn't even try. 

With the above said, I'm aware that this blog post would probably be met with disinterest...but if you're a real beauty enthusiast and not just listening on what is hyped in social media, you ought to keep reading this Beauty Treats of LA Makeup and Skincare Review!

GT Cosmetics Pressed Powder Review - Great for Oily Sensitive Skin!

I seldom hit pan on powder products because I have quite a few (see photo at the pinaybeautyandstyle instagram) so when I test out a pressed powder product and end up hitting pan, I know the product is a keeper! Such is the case with the GT Cosmetics Pressed Powder!

my shade is light beige

Found The Best Hair Serum in Good Virtues Co's Black Seed for Hair Formula!

I've recently colored my hair with Liese Blaune and although the formula of that DIY Hair Color Kit did not damage my tresses, I knew for a fact that my already damaged hair would need some extra TLC in the coming weeks, good thing I found the Good Virtues Co Hair Serum!

Good Virtues Co Hair Serum Reviewed! 

I must admit that I only used the Good Virtues Co hair care products that were gifted from a party because I forgot to bring toiletries and stayed at my other place. I did not have preconceived notions prior to my first use as I have not yet used anything from the brand before and their products are not hyped-up. I believe they are very new to the Philippine market (They are a Malaysian brand). 

Intros aside, I am so happy about that incidence of serendipity because I believe that I've just found a new holy grail hair product for myself, no other than the Good Virtues Co Hair Serum!

What Makes the Good Virtues Co Hair Serum one of the Best Hair Serums in my opinion?

Aztec Secrets Healing Clay Review + DIY Aztec Clay Hacks for Sensitive Skin

I've been using the Aztec Secret Healing Clay as a mask since late 2014 so I guess a review is finally in order! I'll also be sharing some DIY Aztec Clay Mask recipes and tweaks to make the mask work better for my sensitive skin so keep on reading if you want to hear more!

Aztec Secrets Healing Clay Review 

So first off, what is the Aztec Secrets Indian Healing Clay thingy, to begin with?

Liese Blaune Now in the Philippines + Demo and Review Liese Blaune Rose Brown!

I have a thing for hair products that were specifically formulated for Asian hair so I'm so glad that Liese Blaune is finally here in the Philippines!

Truth be told, I've seen Liese Blaune haircolor in other Top Asian Beauty Blogs I follow but the products were only brought here in the Philippines in October 2017. It was right around the time when my hair roots were showing with streaks of gray and white (yikes!). Good thing their PR contacted me and so I eagerly waited for a sample instead of having my hair done at a salon...but who am I kidding? I have no time to go to a salon haha!

Liese Blaune Rose Brown for Gray Hair Coverage

I ain't gonna lie; the signs of aging came early for my hair. I have a lot of grays and white and they are very visible though I have long thick hair. I usually use 2-3 boxes of DIY at home hair color or spend close to 2K at a salon to help maintain the appearance of my brown locks. You see, my job in academe means that I am constantly in front of people and have to deal with a ton of kunsumisyon day in and day out. No wonder my hair is greying prematurely!

Seoul White Korea Instant White Tone-Up Whitening Milky Cream Review

I recently blogged my review on the Seoul White Korea Double Whitening Soap, and I figured I might as well post a separate review of the Seoul White Korea Instant White Tone Up Cream and here it is!

Seoul White Korea Instant White Tone Up Cream - Instant Chok Chok Koreana Skin!

So, what is this first-of-its-kind in the Filipino market new skincare?

The Seoul White Korea’s Instant White Tone Up Cream is a brand new type of product that gives hydration and instantly lighter skin upon application. It isn't heavy unlike other whitening creams and can be used on its own as a sort of tinted primer and a skin-lightening moisturizer.

Seoul White Korea Double White Whitening Soap Review

I was on the fence about trying another whitening soap but the name and the main ingredients of the Seoul White Korea Double White Whitening Soap caught my eye!

Seoul White Korea Double White Whitening Soap - A Korean-Filipino Soap Fusion!

 As I've written in an earlier blog post about the Seoul White Korea Launch, the products are Filipino made using Korean Beauty formula and ingredients, but the soap's base is proudly pinoy coconut oil!

Esfolio Phillipines Haul! Affordable Korean Skincare Haul!

I've been hearing about Esfolio Kbeauty products for more than a year and have also tried the Esfolio Aloe Vera Gel from a friend but I haven't gotten around to getting my hands on their products until a few days ago, thanks to their expanding list of establishments and online stores you can purchase Esfolio products from!

I was first introduced to the brand via my friend a long time ago, but she bought her Esfolio Aloe Vera Gel abroad. Then I kept seeing their products popping in social media but hadn't really looked because I thought that I would have to have a tita in Korea just to purchase. Imagine my glee when I found out that they are available in Metro Department Stores!

Seoul White Korea Skincare Launch - Korean Formula but Proudly Filipino At Heart!

Seoul White Korea... the name alone brings forth images of kpop beauties with amazing skin but this new #kbeauty brand to have made it to the Philippine beauty scene is proudly pinoy!

You've read that right, all the products (the Seoul White Korea Double White Soap and the Seoul White Korea Tone Up Cream) are both made for the Filipino market using Korean Skincare formula and technology. What's not to love, right?

Seoul White Korea Skincare Launch

Speaking of the launch, I wasn't able to go because I can't book an Uber or a Grab. I was really sad to miss it because the people behind the brand are people I trust, meaning I know for a fact that they won't launch a half-baked product. Good thing is that they sent me a kit (and I also bought some na at Watson's after trying my kit, will talk about this later) so I was able to try asap. Truth be told, I've been using the soap now for a week and have worn the Tone Up Cream both as a makeup base and as a skin brightener so a more detailed post with reviews will be posted soon. For now, I just want to talk about what was launched by Seoul White Korea.

What Makes Seoul White Korea Special?

We Made it! 100 Top Asian Beauty Blog list of the Best Beauty Blogs in Asia!

OMG! I know I've been away for an entire month in here (but I was active in the Pinay Beauty And Style Youtube Channel y'all!) and was shookt when viewers and PinayBeautyAndStyle blog readers sent me DMs and PMs that we've been named as one of the 100 Top Asian Beauty Blog in their list of the Best Beauty Blogs in Asia!

Fernberry Review - Japanese Cruelty Free Luxury Skincare That Works!

I first heard about Fernberry luxury skincare products a few months ago via some Canadian influencers and was intrigued by how much they liked the products. I knew that I would be travelling a lot in a few weeks back then and wanted to ensure that I won't be caught with flaky dry skin once the weather turns. Luckily for myself, the Fernberry skincare products were on sale at that time!

Fernberry Review - Cruelty Free Luxury Skincare 

As you can see in the photo above, they even have a beautiful secure box that you can use if you are giving the products as a gift to someone special, and each of the Fernberry Skincare products are secured via elastic bands and further housed in their own boxes - SWEET!

Tipid Beauty Finds Under P300 #PinayBeautyAndStyle #TipidBeauty

I don't know why but my Youtube Subscribers at the Pinay Beauty And Style Channel really love anything #tipidbeauty. This is the main reason why I post different things on the blog here and at the YT channel and IG. The reason why I am cross posting here is I've received a few emails in the last weeks from blog readers who are asking me about affordable makeup recommendations and of course I am happy to share!

Tipid Beauty Finds Under P300

I would also want to make it clear that my #TipidBeauty Series has been around since early 2016 so I am not copying from anyone like some nasty comments on my YT suggest. Nauna po ako mga beshie! :)

Without further ado, here are my Tipid Beauty Finds Under 300 pesos!

Pinay Beauty Favorites (Philippines) October 2017 #PinayBeautyAndStyle

It's been a long time since I shared beauty favorites here in the Pinay Beauty And Style Blog because I usually just post in either instagram or the #PinayBeautyAndStyle youtube channel. Anywhoo, I filmed a taglish video featuring my beauty favorites that happen to feature mini reviews of each product mentioned!


Luke Skin Ph Launch! Luke Skin Solutions is now in the Philippines!

So Kbeauty brand Luke Skin Launch is officially now in the Philippines and I was one of the Philippine beauty bloggers that they invited for their October 11, 2017 launch in Ortigas and of course I went because I'm a total skincare junkie and a Kbeauty fanatic!

Luke Total Skin Solutions Launch in the Philippines

They brought in 3 products. Their hydrogel eye patch, their sheet masks, and their nose cleansing strips. I love the packaging for the products and how the event went. It was super chill, organized and fun! Thanks to the careful planning of brand consultant and blogger Nikkie of AskMeWhats.com

Himalaya Herbals Toothpaste Review | Switching to Natural Toothpaste!

I first heard about Himalaya Herbals toothpaste from a colleague but I didn't think much of the raves she shared because she's been trying to get everyone to convert to using natural vegan products, haha! I thought  she simply wanted everyone to switch to a natural toothpaste. Truth be told, although I've already tried some products from the brand, I wasn't very keen on looking for the toothpaste just to test it out because I was pretty happy with what I was using...or so I thought.

Switching to a natural toothpaste or at least testing some out has long been at the back of my mind. My brother has been using the Himalaya Herbals Sensitive toothpaste and liked it but since I am a coffee drinker, what I was looking for was a teeth whitening toothpaste. As mentioned earlier, I liked what I was using and wasn't really looking to switch to a natural toothpaste or anything like it...then one day I opened up my blogger mail stash and saw that Himalaya Herbals has a whitening toothpaste! 

Not only that, but they sent in 3 other varieties too via Sampleroom (I receive products from the website because I'm one of their trusted bloggers). I got the idea to test all varieties with the fambam because I was planning a body and skin detox at the time. No harm in going all natural, right?

Himalaya Herbals Toothpaste Review

I'm a bit if a nerd, so I went online sleuthing to see whether what I was planning will be worth it. The other reviews I've read are overwhelmingly positive, so I went ahead proposed to the fam that we will all use the different variants. I grabbed the Himalaya Herbals Whitening toothpaste for myself!

I also found out that Himalaya Herbals is a well-established brand that is available in 92 countries. And that even doctors endorse it! I can understand why because I tested their skincare for a week when I went soap free and got positive results!

Anyway, on to the Himalaya Herbals toothpaste review!

BYS Peach Palette Review with Swatches and Price plus Peach Makeup Wear Test!

You have no idea how much I've been lusting after the BYS Peach Eyeshadow Palette! I've waited for about a month before I saw this at a Watsons near me and I immediately bought one. I was so happy coming home when I discovered that BYS Philippines will be having a makeup sale! 

 BYS Peach Palette Review with Swatches and Price plus Peach Makeup Wear Test!

The BYS Philippines makeup sale offers 3 palettes for P1499! I was like, NOOOOOOO! Coz I've just bought 2 palettes when I discovered that haha! Lugi ako besh! Anyway, I decided to review the BYS Peach Palette because the sale is ongoing til the end of October 2017. By the time I publish this blog, you will still have 3 weeks left to shop if you're from the Philippines!

okay, let's move on to the 

BYS Peach Palette Review!

Benefits of Going Soap Free by Using Himalaya Herbals Skincare for a Week

So I decided to go soap free for a week and chose to experiment with Himalaya Herbals because it is one of my go-to skincare brands when I am having a skincare detox. In fact, I still have 2 tubes of the Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Wash that I use whenever my skin needs to take a rest from testing out and reviewing tons of products that I usually share on my blogs and vlogs. But why did I do that? Are there really benefits to going soap free?

Yes there are!


Wowed by what you see above? I am too! There are really benefits to going soap free more so when you have inflammed skin like I do. Let's talk about those below!

Benefits to Going Soap Free

EB Liquid Lipstick (Limited Edition) Review and Swatches #EBLiquidLipstick

I was on the fence about writing a full review of these Ever Bilena Liquid Lipsticks because I know that they are limited edition...but its been months and I still see them in my local Watsons and almost no one else have mentioned they exist (they were outshined by the slimmer EB Matte Liquid Lipstick that I wrote about and did a video on earlier). This version has a thicker almost mousse-like consistency.

Biore Micellar Water Review (Moist Up) with DEMO

Micellar water review posts are one of my favorite ones to write and film because I really believe in the skincare benefits of cleansing the skin properly. I'm also not into harsh cleansers more so now that my skin is extra sensitive because of my PCOS and being in my 30s. 

I reviewed the Maybelline Micellar Water in the past and also compared it with the Loreal Micellar Water. I've also written about the Biore Micellar Cleansing Water variants when I first got them months ago.

So for the unfamiliar, below is a short write up on what is micellar water and why its worth a try before we move on to the review.

What is Micellar Water?

Abbys House of Glycerin Shop Product Review Part 1! Organic Skincare in the Philippines!

This might be one of the longest-running and longest 'in-the-making' blog post I will ever post. I've been testing out these amazing products from Abby's House of Glycerin Shop since May of this year and finally posting a review!

It took me so long because every time I am almost ready to post something, the brand owner would come up with new products and I would be thinking, "might as well wait til I get a hold of the new ones for a full review"

Well, guess what, I don't think the owner will ever stop creating new skincare products so I might as well post this 'partial long review' and then post separate ones of my favorites later, right? The reason why I finally said now is the time is because October is my birthday month and I wanted to share blogs and reviews of all my favorites for this month!

Abby's House of Glycerin Shop Brand Review

I think that it is obvious by now that this would be a rave post. I usually refrain from posting about Instagram shops because a lot of them just sell repackaged or relabeled goods. Though I understand that business is just business, I am very 'maarte' when it comes to skincare and what I recommend to people. Why? Because trying to fix mishaps caused by wrong skincare and/or questionable products is expensive!

Enter Abby's House of Glycerin Shop. 

Cathy Doll Snail DD Cream Review | What is DD Cream?

What is DD Cream? This is the question that popped n my mind when I first saw the Cathy Doll Snail DD Cream. Sure I have heard of BB Cream and CC Cream, but what is DD Cream and what's so different about it that sets it apart from other creams?

What is DD Cream

Cathy Doll Snail DD Cream Review

Okay, so this post will be a review of the Cathy Doll Snail Cream but I figured we should talk a bit about what is a DD Cream. So what is it?

Vice Ganda Cosmetics Launch #ViceCosmetics

I don't usually post about product launches unless I've tried and tested the products on my skin, but I am just so impressed by how clean and organized the Vice Cosmetics website is that I can't help but give them a dedicated blog post (also, a lot of people say the website isn't loading up for them)...and to make tsismis that Vice Cosmetics will also be available in BeautyMNL! 

CLICK HERE for the official Shopee store of Vice Cosmetics where they offer discounts, especially around sweldo days.

Vice Cosmetics Launch

As of this time, the website is currently down and I think that is partly because they are offering free concert tickets with purchase. I would also want to make it clear that they did not give me anything for me to post this (their PR did not contact me because they prefer influencers not bloggers). It's just that so many people are asking me on facebook about the products because they cannot get into the website so here's a blog post about what is on the website!!

GT Cosmetics Color Wand Review | Best Lipsticks for Dry Lips!

I have never heard of the brand GT Cosmetics before coming across these lippies and their face powders. Probably because I mostly review colour cosmetics and their line is quite new. That's why I was so surprised that not only GT Cosmetics is a Filipino company based in Cebu but that their makeup products are actually the bomb!

Now, I don't usually review products this fast unless I am blown away and oh boy, I was!

I was expecting run of the mill products but for a small-ish brand, they sure did put a lot of thought and effort in their products. These are not simply repackaged stuff too, these are especially made for the brand. Anyway, enough of my nerdery talking about the brand and let's talk about lippies!

video review at THIS LINK too :)

GT Cosmetics Color Wand Review and 

Why It's One of The Best Lipsticks for Dry Lips

The ber months are upon us! My lips are cracking from the constant exposure to cold airconditioned environments and traveling. Don't get me wrong, I love liquid matte lipsticks for when I am going out or giving a lecture but for chill days, I want something more moisturizing with a dash of color. 

Beauty Treats of LA Makeup and Skincare now in the Philippines!

I seldom get excited about new makeup releases particularly for face products because I find that most locally available brands do not have products for my skintone or my specific skincare needs, that's why I'm so stoked to share when I received the PR Kit for the brand Beauty Treats of L.A!

Beauty Treats of LA Makeup and Skincare now in the Philippines!

Can we just talk about their 3 shades of face powders and that cream foundation? Time to rejoice pale gals of the Philippines yasss!

Ever Bilena Contour Duo Review | Most Affordable Contour Powder Besh!

Y'all know that I am on the lookout for the most affordable contour powder for this blog, and I'm glad to share that the EB Contour Duo might be it!

Ever Bilena Contour Duo Review

So what makes the EB Contour Duo different? Well, first of all, the price. This baby retails for just P165 in most stores. Although prices may vary, I doubt you will find a retailer that sells this for more than P200. 

But that alone does not make the EB Contour Duo the most affordable contour powder there is (at least not in the Philippines!); it is the fact that each compact contains 2 powders and 8 grams of product. Gram per gram, this is the most affordable contour powder that works for me - even when compared to Wet N Wild, another drugstore love of mine when it comes to contouring powders.

Pink Sugar Sweet Cheeks HD Cheek Color in Morocco Review | Under 300 Pesos Contour Powder

I've been looking for the perfect contour powder for a long while now and I think I just found a new favorite in the Morocco shade of the Pink Sugar Sweet Cheeks HD Cheek Color blushes!

I am not kidding guys. Most of you who are avid readers of the Pinay Beauty And Style Blog or those who've found me via the Youtube Channel are aware that finding a contour shade that works for my skintone is a challenge. I'm usually between NC13 to NC20 so I really need a subtle contour shade that isn't too warm but most of what is available in the local market typically run on the warm side. Imagine my glee when I find out that the Morocco shade of Pink Sugar Sweet Cheeks HD Cheek Color.

Tipid Beauty Haul at Watsons Philippines! #WatsonsPhils Haul!

First of all, this is NOT a sponsored post and the video isn't sponsored as well but I just want to share this because I saved so much moolah! I have a video series called Tipid Beauty Haul in Youtube and people there love the series because that is where I feature good deals, sales, and all tipid hauls!

Tipid Beauty Haul at Watsons Philippines!

Total is P8,253 but got 10% off my bill so only paid P7,427! Tipid much!!! Take note this is on top of the other sales so I saved around 2K if we will compute everything! This was all made possiblle because Watsons Philippines had a sale last August 17 to 23, 2017 and there was also a one day SMAC holder sale! I wish they do more sales like this!

Caronia Free Spirit Collection is HERE!

Calling all those who love pastel nail polish! Caronia Free Spirit Collection is here and brings to us 5 new nail polish colors for everyone!

Caronia Free Spirit Collection

Trivia time! Do you know that Caronia was the first nail polish I used when I was a kid? I vividly remember trying them out in secret with my enabler tita because I'm a #nailpolishaddict since I was young! Here is a link to the proof haha! 

The Caronia Free Spirit Collection features the following nailpolishes:

  • Purple Punch: a purple-yam color frosted nail polish that can go from night to day and can suit a variety of skin tones.
  • Golden Bronze: a bronzy gold frosted nail polish for the perfect kind of earthy sophistication. This one pairs well with almost anything!
  • Gypsy Green: a mix of mint and avocado green in frosted nail polish room. This color is adventurous yet still prim and proper.
  • Bohemian Blue: my favorite from this collection! This cornflower blue satin nail polish has a subtle hint of frosting for a glow from within peg. I think this one is the most bohemian in the whole bunch!
  • Pink Lily: a frosty light pink nail polish with a play on cooler undertones. I think this would look stunning for tanned skin.
What is your best bet in this collection? Stay tuned at the following pages of Caronia Philippines so you won't miss their new releases! Of course these are available everywhere Caronia products are sold and are just around P40 pesos each! The list below are all links so click away!

EB Advance Cheek Color Review, Swatches all shades and Price

Am I a blush addict? I don't think so...but my tapered down collection of more than 80 blushes from drugstore to pricey brands says otherwise haha! With this said, I really can't turn down a good blush plus I always tell myself that I donate/review/give them away within a year anyway..so yeah, nothing sets in my collection for too long gathering dust.

EB Advance Cheek Color Review

Okay. I admit it, I am quite a blush addict and so I couldn't resist completing all 6 of the EB Advance Cheek Color  blush shades when they were on sale. These blushes are only P175 a pop but hey, 40% off was hard to resist you know? I mean look at them and tell me you won't grab them if you were in my place!

Belo Kojic Extra Moisture Bar - Whitening Glycerin Soap with Lots of Benefits!

It's been 2 weeks since I blogged about my first few days of trying out the Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar and I'm here for a review update!

I noticed that some of my Instagram followers and friends at Facebook are not aware of the benefits of glycerin soap. I mean, they don't know what makes glycerin soaps special and why they are often priced above market norms. Yep, glycerin soaps are wayyyyy cooler than their mere translucent looks communicate! Read further down below to know more about the awesome benefits of glycerin soap!

Belo Kojic Extra Moisture Bar Review Update + Benefits of Glycerin Soap

Belo Kojic Extra Moisture Bar - Whitening Glycerin Soap with Lots of Benefits!

I've talked about some of the benefits of Kojic Acid in my earlier blog. For some of you who've been following this blog and the PinayBeautyAndStyle Youtube channel, you are already aware of why I love the Belo Kojic line and what benefits of Kojic Acid I am a fan of. Anyway, just to refresh your memories guys...

LA Girl Smoky Palette Review, Price and Swatches Philippines

Is it just me or does smoky eyeshadow just look good on everyone when done right? There's something about smudged eyeliner and mix of gray and dark browns layered with black that can look so sweet and sultry at the same time! This is why I love collecting smoky eyeshadow palettes even though I don't always wear makeup. If you're on the same boat, then the LA Girl Beauty Brick Smoky Eyeshadow Palette is worth a closer look!

 What makes the LA Girl Smoky Eyeshadow Palette special? 

Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review! Super Affordable Setting and Finishing Powder!

Althea Petal Velvet Powder certainly did not disappoint! I've been looking for a dual purpose powder that does not cost an arm and a leg and can be used as a setting powder and a finishing powder in one compact packaging...but my years of trial and error and buying 'smaller' packagings of cult favorite powder products have left me disappointed; that is, until I found the Althea Petal Velvet Powder!

Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review

I am not raving just because this product was sent to me for free. There are a lot of PR products that do not even make it to my Instagram or random FB posts (just saying), but the Althea Petal Velvet Powder caught my eye (and my heart!) from the packaging to the product's performance!

Meet Careline's New Better Than Basic Makeup and #CarelineGirlGang Endorsers!

It feels like it was only yesterday when I came across Philippine drugstore makeup brand, Careline. Back then, I had no idea that Careline was under Ever Bilena together with EB Advance and I mostly thought of the brand as a makeup brand for teens. Well, things have changed quite a bit and Careline Cosmetics now has a new look, new set of endorsers, TONS of new makeup, and a truly Better Than Basic campaign. Read on below to find out more about Careline's new makeup and endorsers!

OMG! they did not disappoint!

Careline is Better Than Basic Indeed!

Careline Matte Liquid Lipstick Swatches + Mini Review! ft LunaLinaBeauty

Tomorrow marks the official relaunch of Ever Bilena's and EB Advance's baby sister company, Careline. The brand has grown up so much in what seems like a matter of months and I can't wait to share with you guys all the goodies that they have in store for you for the coming months. 

We start off the Careline rebranding (aka coming of age debut) with a lip swatches post of the Careline Matte Liquid Lipstick courtesy of the talented makeup artist Selina Romero of LunaLina Beauty! The photos below are all from her, published with permission, of course. I still have to find 10 of the lippie shades so an in-depth review will be posted soon!

No OUCH! Kojic Acid Soap! Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar Review

Kojic acid soaps are a dime a dozen these days! It seems like almost all brands (and fly-by-night shops) have managed to concoct their own version of the popular whitening kojic acids...So what makes Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar special?

I'm not much for skin whitening (because I already look like a ghost) but I love the micro peeling effect that kojic acid typically gives me. I've also written a few blog posts featuring some skin whitening and skin lightening products I trust, but one thing that I dislike about kojic acid products is that they can be irritating to sensitive skin and cause skin dryness. Good thing that Belo Essentials found a way to address that!

New Look at An Old Favorite! Palmolive Naturals Intensive Moisture Shampoo and Cream Conditioner

It's been a while since I reviewed anything related to hair care so I thought it would be best to write a comeback post featuring a local favorite - the Palmolive Naturals Intensive Moisture Shampoo and Cream Conditioner duo!

Palmolive Naturals Intensive Moisture Shampoo and Cream Conditioner Review

The Palmolive Naturals Intensive Moisture Shampoo and Cream Conditioner duo are Colgate-Palmolive's response to those who are looking for a creamy and nourishing shampoo and conditioner from their brand. I've long been a fan of the variant for color-treated hair and the one one for normal hair but because of my wacky hormones (PCOS + hypothyroidism), it seems like very few of my old favorites work for me now. 

I need help...

Bobbie Cosmetics Poppin Cheeks in Chisel Review | P100 Contour and Bronzer

I created this blog because I want to share great find from local manufacturers of makeup and skincare; hence, I'm beyond thrilled to have something to add to my growing list of affordable makeup finds from the Philippine drugstore!

Bobbie Cosmetics Poppin Cheeks in Chisel

I kid you not. The local drugstore makeup aisle is brimming with treasures! I know this is easy to just cast aside and label as mere pa-hype effect but hey, I got nothing to gain if I spend my time blogging about the Bobbie Cosmetics Poppin Cheeks in Chisel and it turns out to be a dud, right?

Ever Bilena Matte Liquid Lipstick Swatches and Review ALL 12 shades (with lip swatches!) #ebmatte #ebmatteliquidlipstick

Finally! Your long wait is over! Here is my review of the newly released Ever Bilena Matte Liquid Lipstick that I featured 2 weeks ago when I first shared their swatches. At that time, I had no idea that they would be sending these over and was kinda losing hope of ever getting my hands on the entire shade range hahaha!

Ever Bilena Matte Liquid Lipstick COMPLETE Swatches and Review

So yeah, the Ever Bilena Matte Liquid Lipsticks were sent to me but as you well know, that won't affect what I will say and what I think about the product. Just putting this out there so we can move on to the review!

LA Girl Beauty Brick Nudes Eyeshadow Palette Review Price and Swatches

Rose gold eyeshadow always gets to me. I don't know what it is about romantic golden-pink hues but I am definitely obsessed with them! You might be thinking, oh no! Not ANOTHER pink eyeshadow review please! Well, you might change your mind because the LA Girl Beauty Brick Nudes Eyeshadow Palette isn't just another 'pink' eyeshadow palette, not for me at least.

Origins Exploring KBeauty? Origins Flower Fusion Sheet Masks Launch Philippines

To say that I love sheet masks is an understatement. Some of you know me from the Pinay Beauty And Style youtube channel and know for a fact that I'm a sheet mask junkie! It's like whenever there is a new promising sheet mask in the market, I gotta try it!

Origins launched their Flower Fusion line recently in the Philippines and I've been meaning to get a few. However, being a north girl, I just can't bring myself to travel all the way to SM Makati or Megamall to purchase them.

#ProjectVanityXOrigins Floral Soiree

Enter the #ProjectVanityXOrigins Floral Soiree event. Being a reader of Project Vanity, I was thrilled that I'll get to try out the masks, learn something new (because the event announcement said there will be a flower arrangement activity), meet the Project Vanity team, and pass time (because I was supposed to meet up friends later that day!) if I sign up for the event. I did and here we are!
