Esfolio Gold Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch Review - Really Great for Tired Eyes!

I love snail skincare! I know I haven't talked much about using skincare with snail ingredient here in the blog but I talked about it so many times on YouTube and Instagram. This is pretty much why I got the Esfolio Gold Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch last year as can be seen on my post about my Esfolio Philippines Haul! Warning, that blog post is picture heavy and comes with a video!

Althea Korea Holidays Haul 2018 - I Got All My Kbeauty Wishes!

Althea Korea is my favorite overseas online shop for KBeauty products. I don't even know how many hauls and reviews I've posted because sometimes I film an entire Youtube video, sometimes I just write about, sometimes just an IG post or IG stories, and of course there are times when I am too busy to write or share about my Althea haul. This time, I am just too happy because this is the first time in a long while that my Althea Korea haul came in a holiday box (a special edition Althea Korea box) so I wanted to document this moment hahah!

Althea Korea Holidays Haul 2018 - I Got All My Kbeauty Wishes!


I uploaded a new Althea Korea Philippines Haul video on YouTube a few days ago and I really thought that would be the last Althea Korea video for 2018. However, this parcel came just 3-4 days after placing an order at the Althea Korea website so I decided to write about this too! :)

note: you can watch that video at the end of this post.

So, what Kbeauty items did I get from Althea this time?

Detail Makeover Stannic Matte Lipstick Review Swatches Price

Detail Makeover Stannic Matte Lipstick is on my list of metallic lipsticks that you should try for the holidays. I thought that since New Year is coming up, I ought to share a written review of the Stannic Matte Lipsticks from Detail Makeover but if you're a video type of gal, scroll below and watch the embedded video!

So Detail Makeover is a Filipino brand of makeup that is now also available in some Department Stores and Grocery Stores. They used to be just sold online under Cosmetix Unlimited and Detail Makeover IG and website. Don't worry though, you can still buy these online, I just mentioned that this is available in stores for those who feel iffy about purchasing online. 

I personally buy from the Detail Cosmetics Shopee store
because they usually have sales and discounts.

Detail Makeover Stannic Matte Lipstick Review

As far as I know, the Detail Makeover Stannic Matte Lipsticks are available in just 4 shades,

Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Chocolate Pink Frizz Palette Review, Price, Swatches

I've had the Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Chocolate Pink Frizz Palette for almost 2 years now and I think it is time for a review. Truth be told, I only got this palette from a friend's destash because I was curious about how it will perform. At that time, I wanted a palette with a lot of shimmery shades for creating a Korean Makeup look and this palette did deliver.

Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Chocolate Pink Frizz Palette Review

Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Chocolate Pink Frizz Palette Price

This retails for $10-$12 online. In the Philippines, I've seen resellers sell this for P600-P1,000. 

Lebaton BanBan Cream Review - Best Cream for Dry Skin?

BanBan Cream was a term I first heard from one of my Korean medical students but she wasn't able to explain what it is for and what I can do with it. All she said was that it is the best cream for dry skin. At that time, I also didn't have any idea where to buy and so I just forgot about it. Fast forward 2017 when I finally got to try Lebaton BanBan Cream and boy, it's great!

Sanosan Baby Products Review - NEW Baby Care Brand in the Philippines!

I have come to terms with the fact that I am now officially a tita blogger, hahaha! I mean, I tried to kept this blog all about beauty reviews but I have to admit that the YouTube videos that get the most view at the PinayBeautyAndStyle YouTube channel are mostly those that deal with tita topics such as shopping, skincare, lifestyle events, and whoa, even baby care!

I don't have a kid yet but I've gone through a ton of little brothers, cousins, and nieces and nephews. I believe the essence of being a woman is to have that nurturing side and so I'm finally blogging about baby products and child care products even though I'm not a mom yet. Tita bloggers for the win!

I chose to write about Sanosan as one of my first forays into the world of tita blogging because I have personally tried and used some of their products (I use some baby products myself because I have ultra-sensitive skin). I've also gifted Sanosan products to friends and family with little kids and newborns in the past year or so. 

Sanosan Baby Products Review - NEW Baby Care Brand in the Philippines! 

So anyway, Sanosan baby products are relatively new in the Philippines. I think they only became locally available in 2017 but I've first heard of the brand in 2016 if I am not mistaken. My first Sanosan product was given to me by my English friend and she got it from Germany. That's why I was so happy when they finally came here in the Philippines! I've only personally tried 3 Sanosan baby products so far, the Sanosan Anti-Stretch Mark Cream, the Sanosan Natural Kids 3-in-1 Shower, Shampoo, and Conditioner for Girls and my personal favorite, the Sanosan Baby Ointment.

2019 New Makeup from Ever Bilena, EB Advance, Careline, and Kris Life Kit! #parabenfree and #crueltyfree

Ever Bilena held the #EBHouseParty on December 19, 2018 at Ascott Makati. I was invited as one of the bloggers, vloggers, and makeup artists. I thought it was just a Christmas Party event but it turned out that it was also a sneak peek of some of the new makeup from Ever Bilena, EB Advance, Careline, and Kris Life Kit that will be released in 2019! What made me even happier is the fact that these are all #parabenfree and #crueltyfree, yay!

Catriona Gray Red Lipstick - Red Lipstick for Filipinas for the Holidays! (Nothing over P300!)

Catriona Gray wore a one of a kind red gown when she won as Miss Universe 2018 and of course a lot of gals and gents are raving over her makeup and how incredibly vibrant and seductive yet sophisticated her red lipstick is. Because she supports local brands and is an endorser/model for Ever Bilena Cosmetics, I really think that she's wearing one of their products. Below are some of the red lipsticks that closely match what Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray was wearing when she won as Miss Universe 2018 and happen to be great red lipsticks for filipinas especially for the holidays!

12 Catriona Gray Red Lipsticks that Match Her Red Gown!

Some By Mi Makeup Review - Lipstick, Eyeshadow, and Cushion from Some By Mi

Some By Mi is known for their Miracle Toner and Miracle Soap so I was really surprised to see Some By Mi makeup when I visited their Korean website earlier this year.

I blogged about buying Some By Mi products in the Philippines, by the way. 

Some By Mi Makeup Review 

It took me a long while to create a Some By Mi makeup review because I really believe in using and testing products first for at least a few times before publishing reviews. Since these makeup products are more for the Kbeauty look, I didn't have frequent enough opportunities to test them out.

Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask Review, Price, Buy in the Philippines

Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask intrigued me because I love the Althea Fresh Skin Detoxer products. I figured, if this is from Althea, this has to be good, right?

Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask Review 


The Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask is a hydrating and peeling mask in 1. It has BHA and AHA Extracts, proven gentle exfoliators that work gently on the skin. 

EB Sculpt & Strobe Stick by Ever Bilena Review Swatches Price

EB Sculpt & Strobe Stick by Ever Bilena is a current beauty staple of mine because it is perfect for the cooler weather these days! At just P225 per piece, the EB Sculpt & Strobe Stick gives you a contour/bronzer stick and a highlighter stick in one sleek packaging!

EB Sculpt & Strobe Stick by Ever Bilena Review

Can we just appreciate how the packaging was designed? I really got to hand it over to Ever Bilena because they went beast mode in their product and branding revamp. I like how compact the product is and that the cream sticks are retractable.

I happen to have 2 shades of the Ever Bilena Sculpt and Strobe variants:

Must Buy KBeauty from Althea Korea! My Althea Christmas Wish List and Recommendations!

Althea Korea is my go-to website whenever I want to buy anything K-beauty! I have so many Althea Haul videos in the PinayBeautyAndStyle youtube channel and have also accumulated a lot of blogs featuring Athea product reviews and hauls. Now what I want to share is a holiday special because this post is about my Must buy Kbeauty items from Althea Korea! Some are products that I've personally tried and some are highly-raved by my fellow Kbeauty addicts so I want to try them out. If you're planning on shopping at Althea Korea Philippines, then be sure to check out my list below!

My Althea Wish List and Recommendations! These are All Must Buy Kbeauty for 2018!

I'll talk about the products in the photo in a future post but basically those in this picture are my highly recommended base products from Althea Korea! My holiday recommendations and wish list are below!

Ever Bilena Liquid Lipstick Beauty Set High Heels Review and Swatches (Limited Edition)

Ever Bilena Liquid Lipstick Beauty Set High Heels was released a year ago as part of the limited edition (holiday) collection together with the set called City Romance. At that time, I scoured several Watson's but couldn't find a set and it took me until about the mid of this year to finally get my hands on this set. I didn't blog earlier because I thought this will be hard to find (speaking from my previous experience) and I really thought that they will pull this out of the market since this is limited edition but hey, these days I find the Ever Bilena Liquid Lipstick Beauty Set High Heels in almost all SM Beauty and Watson's I visit!

Ever Bilena Liquid Lipstick Beauty Set High Heels Review and Swatches

The limited edition Ever Bilena Liquid Lipstick Beauty Set High Heels comes with 3 MLBB matte liquid lipsticks. Each lipstick comes in a tube with a doe foot applicator containing 3 grams of product.

This retails for P395 usually but from now until the end of 2018 they are having a promo so you can get all 3 for just P199! Wow, right?

Get Holiday-Ready Skin With Jergens! Best Way to Moisturize Skin!

I've been web-searching for the best way to moisturize skin lately because the nippy weather is back and with it comes my dry skin with a vengeance! That was why I was really thrilled when I received a holiday pampering kit from Jergens Philippines!

I wrote about  my love for Jergens lotions back when I went to their 100 years with Jergens  celebration event and I think it is that time of the year to share additional tidbits about why I like using their products.

I have really sensitive skin. I don't know why but there are times when even products that are labeled as sensitive-skin friendly cause a reaction for me. Good thing that doesn't happen with Jergens or else I'll have to suffer having scaly legs all winter long!

Okay, we don't really have winter in the Philippines but I'm often in air-conditioned environment and travel a lot. Air conditioning and travel really zaps the moisture off of the skin, no kidding!

Kris Matte Liquid Lipsticks Review Swatches Price from Ever Bilena - Complete Shades Kris Life Kit!

Kris Life Kit Liquid Lipstick collab with Ever Bilena was released a few months ago but I've only completed them recently. I had to hunt for the shades Learn and Let Go and I will update this post when I receive them from my friend who bought them for me. Struggle is real talaga just to complete the entire collection so I'm blogging my review now since I've had a few months to try and test the first 5 shades if Kris Matte Liquid Lipsticks they've released.

Kris Matte Liquid Lipsticks Review and Swatches from Ever Bilena 

Kris Life Kit Liquid Lipsticks were initially released in 5 shades, namely Love, Life, Loyal, Laugh, and Lucky.

Air Optix Colors Review - Tried Air Optix Graded Lenses and it's Life Changing!

Graded contact lenses somehow scared me for some reason. I've been using Air Optix Colors contact lenses for a few years now but I've only recently tried their graded contact lenses for my myopic astigmatism and I'm glad I did.

Air Optix Colors Review - Tried Air Optix Graded Lenses and it's Life Changing!

I don't know why it didn't occur to me to find out whether color contact lenses were available in graded version but I somehow thought that graded lenses are always clear haha!

Anyway I was drawn in to try Air Optix Colors graded lenses because I love their colored contacts for the following reasons:

Vice Cosmetics Velvet Lip Kit Review Swatches Price COMPLETE COLLECTION #GandangGaan #ViceVelvetLipKit

Vice Cosmetics just launched the Top Cheekret Aura Collection just 2 weeks ago and they've now come up with more pasabog in the form of a totally new product, the Vice Velvet Lip Kit!

LIP LINER THOUGHTS (0.25 grams per retractable pencil): The lip liner totally improved from their previous formula. 

Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway Review - Super Light Sunblock with No White Cast!

Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway is usually mistaken for just another sunblock, but this product from none other than the Althea Petal Velvet Line is a lot more than that!

Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway Review - Super Light Sunblock with No White Cast!

Readers who've been fans of this blog for a while know that I love using sunscreen and sunblock products but am not a fan of sticky feel and white cast. I am very picky when it comes to sun protection products that I use on my face and the Althea Petal Velvet Powder passed my standards so yey!

The Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway is the newest product in the Petal Velvet Line from Althea Korea. It promises to shield the skin from the sun while being lightweight, invisible, and bringing skin-saving nutrients to the skin.

Beauty Glazed Palettes Swatches Price and Unboxing! Shopee Haul Series

Beauty Glazed is a makeup brand that caught my eye in facebook because their palettes are reportedly dupes for high-end makeup palettes.

I mean, how can you go wrong with these? Just take a look!

Beauty Glazed Palettes Swatches and First Impressions

So when I found them for sale via Shopeeph, I immediately made several purchases from various sellers and waited for my parcel to arrive. Here are my first impressions about the products.

GirlStuff Nail Polish Bases - Perfect Gift for Your Girlfriends!

This post has long been in the making but I wasn't sure how I can showcase nail polish products that are supposed to go under nail color. I've blogged and vlogged about Girl Stuff Nail Polish a few times in the past by featuring them in several YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram videos but I feel that my review of these particular products will help people if I write about them (after all, Facebook Live and IG stories have limited audience). Below are why Girl Stuff Nail Polish bases will make the perfect small gift for your bffs!

Girl Stuff Nail Polish Bases Review

I've confessed in my videos and older blogs that I have a nail polish obsession that comes and goes. There are periods when I won't touch a nail polish bottle for a month or so and periods when I change my nail polish every day! Needless to say my nails tend to really suffer when I'm in my nail-polish-loco-mode...but that was before I discovered using nail polish bases.

EB Advance Lip Define Matte Matic Lipstick Review Swatches Price | Nude Lipstick for Filipinas

I have a ton of reviews featuring EB Advance products but I can't help but also create a dedicated post for the EB Advancce Lip Define Matte Matic lipstick as well. I loved the EB Advance Matic Lipstick released in 2016 and after 2 years, they created and released a much better version!

EB Advance Lip Define Matte Matic Lipstick Review and Swatches

The EB Advance Lip Define Matte Matic Lipstick are 6 nude shades of demi-matte crayon-type lipsticks that promises to have a perfect shade of nude lipstick for every Filipina.

Each one retails for about P200 for 2.5 grams of product and can be bought wherever Ever Bilena and EB Advance products are sold.

Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxers Uses! KBeauty Idols love them too!

It has been a while since I blogged about the Althea x Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Launch and I've been enjoying the skin detoxers so much that I purchased again (which I shared via IG live unboxing @pinaybeautyandstyle IG). I'm writing again today because I found out that you can use the detoxers for other parts of the body too!

The Real Fresh Skin Detoxers shown above are a collaboration between Althea Korea and Get It Beauty, a Korean beauty show that is very popular in TV. The show will often have experts in the beauty field like dermatologists, pharmacists, and even celebrities. Their primary audience are young professional women who love Kbeauty. 

So I saw a video from Get it Beauty wherein EXID member Jeonghwa and Korea's well-known beauty influencer Minsco were having a girl bonding time trying out the Althea Skin Detoxers. It turned out that they caught in on the hype and created their own video using the products!

watch the video by clicking the play button

watch the video by clicking the play button

So as you can see, the Althea Skin Detoxers collab with Get It Beauty are 2-in-1 cleanser packs that allow you to detox your skin in just 10 seconds while also injecting it with loads of skin-loving nutrients. My personal favorite is the Green Tea version as what I showed in my FB live video a few days ago at the FB pinaybeautyandstyle page. 

You can also read about the Althea x Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Launch  from my earlier blog post.

The good news is that for a limited time, you can get

Vice Cosmetics Aura Collection Swatches and Price Blush, Contour, and Glow!

Vice Cosmetics launched their cheek products and called it the Aura Collection. The collection consists of Aura Blush (8 blushes), Aura Contour (2 contour powders), and Aura Glow (3 highlighters). This post is not yet a full review but more of a swatch fest and first impressions review of the Vice Cosmetics Aura Collection.

Vice Cosmetics Aura Collection Blushes, Contour, and Highlighter Swatches

I was honestly surprised that the Aura collection is this big. I know this isn't as huge as collections released by foreign makeup brands but local brands typically release just half of these number at a time. I like the fact the blushes came in 2 finishes and 8 shades and that the contour and highlighters were chosen to fit the various skin tones that pinays have.

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

I like the no fuss and frills packaging. No unnecessary mirror or applicator that I don't use anyway. I think they made a great decision doing away with those to bring the pricing down.

lots of swatches below!

Soothies Foot Care Line Review - Giving my Feet a Makeover! (with before and after)

I wasn't blessed with pretty feet. My grandpa used to tease me that I have "paang luya" or "paang magsasaka" hahaha! And so I for the longest time, I haven't taken much care of my feet and will often wear closed shoes. I don't even frequent spas and also opt to do my own pedicure at home because I'm embarrassed by how my feet looks. It doesn't help that I'm not very lady-like so you can say that my feet have really been used and abused...more so that I give lectures standing up 8-10 hours a day! 

I tried the Soothies Foot Care Line because my feet really needed tender loving care. I figured I better give it a makeover first before I walk around wearing strappy shoes or book an appointment at the foot spa. Also, honestly speaking, I don't have time to go to salons and spas so why not try to pamper my feet at home, right? Bonus points that the entire Soothies Foot Care Line is available at Watsons and everything is reasonably priced! Yay!

Soothies Foot Care Review

The entire Soothies Foot Care Line retails for a little less than P700 pesos. That's not bad considering that an appointment at a foot spa can cost just as much. By going the DIY foot care route, you can pamper your feet anytime and anywhere!

Below are all the products in no particular order plus what I liked about each one.

Waking Up From Blogging Hiatus

I've literally gone silent for about 3 months and I'm not going to sugar coat the reasons why. I got burned out and got too busy. Beauty blogging is a hobby for me (not my career) and it just got to the point where I was spending more time on it than my real job and it wasn't healthy. 

I also noticed that I was getting influenced by the "influencer culture" of hyping things up and wanting to be the first to post about "reviews" when the truth is they've only held the product for like a few seconds or swatched the product on their arm. That's not my style and trying to be more like  that really got to me. Instead of being an enjoyable hobby, blogging became a rat race thing for me so I got tired and decided to focus on my post graduate studies and detox from all the beauty blogging hoolabaloo for a while. 

Anyway enough of the real talk. I'm back to blogging but not sure if I'll still continue posting review videos at YouTube. My videos are getting flagged as adult content because the channel name reads like a popular search term for sleazy youtube videos. I might have to change channel name, hahah!

I know I'm rambling at this point but I just want to make a note of this to remind myself not to fall into the same void in the future. I have plenty of nice things to share. They may not be "uso" or always talking about new releases but they are real. Real reviews that are meant to share information and document experiences...not just to gain views :)

Still alive and went to an event after 10,000 years hahaha! This will be in the next posts!

Oh, just an update...over the course of the past 6 months I lost 33 pounds and gained back 15 in some photos I may look slim and in some I may look a bit bigger. I'll be posting about things I tried and beauty products I explored for the past 6-8 months. I'm really glad that I still took photos and notes even when I was not actively blogging. They're real documentation material of the time I was testing certain items.

I'm also thinking about focusing more on products and brands that matter to me so every now and then I might post about relatively unknown products. Isn't that what real blogging is about? Sharing discoveries? For some reason, blogging in recent times became synonymous with posting about whatever is the "in thing". Naging pa-hype na lang. Not my cup of tea so I'll keep creating in the way that I enjoy while being true to myself. 

This blog is meant to be my "escape" from work and stress so please bear with me na ayoko ma-toxic makiuso. This is also why I don't entertain lots of sponsored crap and post about things I actually tried. Hope y'all get what I mean. Peace out, char!

More blogs (not rambling ones) coming soon!

Where to Buy Miracle Toner by Some By Mi Philippines and Unboxing!

Been wanting to create a review for the trending Some By Mi Miracle Toner, so I didn't pass the chance to try the Miracle Toner out especially that I'll be getting them straight from Korea to my doorstep in the Philippines!

Where to Buy Miracle Toner by Some By Mi Philippines and Unboxing!


The Some By Mi Miracle Toner is a toner that promises to make inflamed and acne-ridden skin feel and look better after just 30 days of use. According to the information available ob their website, the Miracle Toner is able to do this because it:

  • has a high concentration of tea tree oil which kills bacteria and other microscopic causes of acne
  • has ingredients that work towards skin exfoliation to minimize dirt and sebum, making sure that bacteria will have less hiding places
  • has Niacinamide which brightens and rejuvenates the skin
  • has low pH, the exact pH range of the skin so it is mild and non-irritating
  • is free from 20 harmful ingredients that can aggravate existing skin conditions
So you can see why I am drawn to try out the Miracle Toner for myself, more so that my brother also recommended it to me. I am currently testing out the toner and will share my findings in a future blog post.

Ever Bilena Chocolate Palette Review, Swatches, and Price - It is SOOO Sulit!

Ever Bilena eyeshadows are a favorite of mine from the local drugstore. I mean, I think I've reviewed all the eyeshadows they're released so far hahaha! See my list of reviews for Philippine drugstore palettes here. Anyway, what drew me to the new Ever Bilena Chocolate palette is the packaging. It looks like it is going to be a Kylie Eyeshadow dupe!

It wasn't, by the way... but I'm glad that it isn't.

Ever Bilena Chocolate Palette Review

So, what is the Ever Bilena Chocolate Palette?

The Ever Bilena Chocolate Palette is a compact eyeshadow palette composed of 9 matte shades in varying shades of browns. Swatches below!

EB Lip and Cheek Roller Swatches and Review NEW SHADES from Ever Bilena!

It seems like it was only yesterday when I published my first Ever Bilena Lip and Cheek Roller Review and now, we finally got new shades of the EB Lip and Cheek Rollers! See my Review of the Ever Bilena Lip and Cheek Tints HERE.

EB Lip and Cheek Roller Swatches and Review

What is the Ever Bilena Lip and Cheek Roller?

The Ever Bilena Lip and Cheek Roller is still the newest line amongst all the 'tint-type' products in the EB Arsenal (see last photo below)

Cathy Doll Skinny EyeBrow Pencil Review - A NYX Micro Brow Pencil Dupe!

I have a thing for brow pencils and so when I saw the Cathy Doll Skinny Brow Pencil that looks just like my favorite pencil from NYX, I was drawn to it, albeit with a hint of skepticism.

My skepticism is partly because I've been loving my NYX Micro Brow Pencil for almost 3 years (so I think its irreplaceable, haha!) and partly because the Cathy Doll Skinny Eyebrow Pencil is so cheap! It is only P259 to P269 pesos or just around $5, half the price of my favorite!

Cathy Doll Skinny Brow Pencil Review -  A NYX Micro Brow Pencil Dupe!

The Cathy Doll Skinny Brow Pencil is true to its name. For comparison in the photo below, I've laid it beside a gel pen so you guys can see how thin the retractable pencil is.

Ever Bilena Matte Nude Lipsticks Review and Swatches from Ever Bilena

The Ever Bilena Matte Lipsticks are an icon. My review of the EB Matte Lipsticks got more me more than 30K hits for this blog alone, that's why I'm thrilled to share my review of the Ever Bilena Matte Nude Lipsticks because, in my opinion, they are as good as the original formula of Ever Bilena Lipsticks but are in a more flattering soft matte form with 6 beautiful nude shades to boot!

EB Matte Nude Lipsticks Review


The Eb Matte Nude Lipsticks are Ever Bilena's take on trending nude colors made similarly to their iconic EB Nude lipstick formula. There are 6 shades in the collection that are inspired by Italian names. The shades are Amore, Baci, Bellissima, Caramello, Dolce, and Fia.

Althea x Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Launch

It was just like yesterday when Althea Korea launched the Althea Velvet Powder and the Althea Bare Essentials line. This month,  they're not only celebrating Althea Turns 3 and the launch of Althea Angels, but they're also celebrating the launch of the Althea x Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer in Rose and Green Tea!

Althea x Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Launch

The reason why I'm one of the first ones to try the new Althea Rose Detoxer and Green Tea Detoxer is because the Pinay Beauty And Style Blog was named as one of the Althea Angels. Maybe they've seen how many unboxing videos I made of my Althea hauls, hahaha!

Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer

What is Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer?

The two variants of the Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer are meant to be an extra skin care step to help get rid of toxins in the skin. One is designed for use in the morning and another for use for night skincare. The Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer is a collaboration with Get It Beauty.

Althea Turns 3 and They've Named PinayBeautyAndStyle as one of their Althea Angels!

I still can't believe that it has been 3 years since I first heard about Althea Korea. They've only been in the Philippines for 2.5 years but I can vividly remember when they first launched in Malaysia 3 years ago because I was super jealous that we didn't have them in the Philippines that time. Fast forward to early 2016 and they launched in the Philippines and I've been shopping my Korean beauty goodies from them since then.


Althea has a lot of promos and goodies in store for everyone for their 3rd birthday. Call me shallow but I am totally digging the birthday kit of 3 cute boxes included when you make a purchase this month.

DIY Bath Bomb Recipe for Beginners that Really Work!

Search DIY Bath Bomb Recipe and you're sure to come across multitudes of recipes; however, not all of them can work in a hot, humid, climate like the Philippines because bath bomb recipes are sensitive to the level of moisture in the air. I've tried and tested a ton of DIY Bath Bomb Recipes online and found one that works for me. I've tweaked it over the years and sharing my basic bath bomb recipe below!

Basic Bath Bomb Recipe for Beginners

My bath bomb recipe is quite simple. All you need are the following:

Careline Multi Sticks Review with Swatches and Wear Test! Contour Stick, Blur Stick, and Strobe Stick!

I've been excited to get my hands on the Careline Multi Sticks ever since I first saw them during the Careline Girl Gang Better Than Basic launch that I attended a year ago (blog here). I almost thought that I'll never get to see them and all I'll ever have are Careline Multi Sticks Swatches hahaha! Good thing that BeautyMNL started carrying Careline products and I was able to buy the much awaited Careline Blur Stick, Careline Strobe Stick, and Careline Contour Stick!

Careline Multi Sticks Review with Swatches and Wear Test! 

I decided to buy only the Careline Blur Stick, Careline Strobe Stick, and Careline Contour Stick and opted to get the brighten, peach, and rose stick later because I wasn't sure how they will perform but now I am tempted to buy all and complete my collection of Careline Multi Sticks!

I love BeautyMNL na, I've had issues trying to buy from Lazada eh but BeautyMNL always hassle-free and delivered the following day agad-agad!

What are Careline Multi Sticks?

Cathy Doll AA Cream Review! What is Automatic Aura Cream?

I've been hearing about the Cathy Doll AA Cream for a while now but this product is seriously so difficult to find (for me at least!)! My blog readers and YouTube viewers have been telling me to try the Cathy Doll Automatic Aura Cream since last year but no matter where I looked (andaming 711 and Watson's!!!) either out of stock or they have no idea what it is. I've considered getting the Cathy Doll AA Cushion but wasn't sure if that will be as good as the famed Cathy Doll AA Cream so you can just imagine the level of anticipation and high standards I have when I finally got my hands on this baby!

100 Years of Glowing Skin With Jergens Celebration in the Philippines!

I seldom write celebratory blogs, but I can't help talking about celebrating 100 Years of Glowing Skin with Jergens as I have a lot of fond memories with products from the brand. Jergens was the first ever lotion I used on my skin. I fondly remember my grandma asking me to give her a massage (apply Jergens lotion on her legs because she can't bend over) when I was around 5 or 6. I bet she'll be happy to see me getting a glimpse of the very first Jergens bottle in person!

100 Years of Glowing Skin With Jergens

I'm a bit of a snob for invites. I won't go if I don't care about the brand/product or bad trip ako sa PR, hahaha! Anywhoo, Jergens and I go wayyy back so of course I said "YES!" to Digify's invite :)

The invite itself was pretty neat too!

Below is a clip of me right after I arrived at the venue. You can watch the rest of the video at my vlogs for my reviews of the Maybelline Superstay Foundation and the EB Advance Contour Palette over at the Pinay Beauty And Style YouTibe channel :)

MCO Cosmetics Iconic Lips Bold Matte Liquid Lipstick Review, Swatches, Price ALL SHADES (almost)

MCO Cosmetics Iconic Lips Bold Matte Liquid Lipstick looks like an expensive liquid lipstick, so I was a bit surprised to find out that a tube retails for just P259 each. I've heard of MCO Cosmetics in social media but I can't seem to find them in North Metro Manila area so it took a while for me to review them for you.

MCO Cosmetics Iconic Lips Bold Matte Lipstick Review!

MCO Cosmetics reviews have long been requested by my viewers and readers so I am so glad to finally write this review and have something to share when someone asks again, yey!

I have 11 shades of the MCO Cosmetics Iconic Lips Bold Matte Liquid Lipstick, they sent me two of the same shade called Red Drama. I'm not disappointed because Red Drama is a super flattering red on me like WOW!
