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. 

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 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!

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?

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:

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!

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.

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:
