Clio Water Kill Founwear Cushion Review

This post has been long overdue and honestly, I have already finished the first cushion and I am already using the extra cushion that comes along with the box. I think it is just proper to publish my review before I run out of stock. Being a korean drama addicts, i have learned about their best beauty secrets of korean celebrities and even though I cannot practice them all, i have a better view on what is good for your skin.

Since the hype of korean cushions, many korean brands and manufacturers are releasing their own version of cushion and I have learned about this product since my fave korean actress Gong Hyo Jin is their newest endorser after Sandara Park or Dara   I have watched a majority of drama of Hyon Jin and i have seen her using this product in most of her drama so the curiosity grows a lot inside me.

This brand is not easy to find in our place and yes, there is still no local beauty shops that carry this brand but if you are a follower of korean skincare and makeup cult, you probably have heard about it and been wanting to have one.  There are several reviews of their cushion but not this particular version.

EDITED Update:  Club Clio can now be found in the Philippines.  Their flagship store can be found at Trinoma, Quezon city,.  I do hope they will soon have a store near the Malate area. 

The Clio Professional Water Kill Founwear Cushion is easy to use just like the other cushion brand in the market, it has a air puff and a protective covering before it reveals the bb cream itself but unlike with the other cushion I have used, the air puff  does not last for long.

They have four shades to choose from, Lingerie, Linen, and Ginger .  I have tried the ginger based on my seller suggestion since I have been using no. 23 on other cushions. It’s a more of foundation and bb cream in one and it does not oxide into your skin which means it will last long, which I have hope for.

Looking at this, you may get the feeling that it was near my skin tone but when I applied it on my face, it was really way more lighter than my original skin color which is a little bit distracting at first. I thought it must just be the lighting or the angle where i took the shot but my daughter told me that my face is really whiter than my usual color but you cannot deny the fact  that it has a good coverage since it covers the dark areas in my face especially my dark under eye.

I guess you need to put little amount at first until such time you know the right build up to put on your face. The second time i used the cushion, the result is no longer as whiter as this.

VERDICT 

This cushion is good for people with normal and combination skin but not too dry nor to oily since it has a dewy finish, it’s good to use a good face powder to set the look. The refill has its own spare sponge which I think is their solution with previous review that the old version has no sponge on it.  It has a nice packaging and sturdy compact, my son accidentally played with it and it fell but unexpectedly it does not broke that easily. It has no distinct smell and it stays for a long period of time, (like five to six hours) for my part. Since, I have oily skin, it tend to look a little bit shiny that’s why the need for a good powder to fix the problem.

You can buy this on online store but I got mine through a trusted seller in facebook, if you want to know more about her, just leave a message and I will add you on her group where she sell lots of korean skin care and cosmetics that you will truly love.  Checked this out from Hallyu.com and it cost $50.00.  A little bit pricey but one cushion last for a month for me and I have used it daily except weekends.

Color Correcting Concealer : NYX Concealers Review

I have heard many MUA and make up lovers talked about their favorite color correcting concealer and they actually featured different brands on the process of creating their everyday look . Honestly, i have no idea that concealers have different colors and different purposes as well.  One product that caught my attention is this NYX concealers.

This jar concealer only cost $5 and promise to hide your blemishes, dark circles, red and dark pigmentation too. For someone who have been battling acne for years, hiding them for a while is just too good an option. I have tried different concealer before but it’s just too sad that i was not able to find that works best on my face.

IMG_7877

There are many different color correcting concealers. This time, let us talk about my experience with the green and yellow concealers from NYX.

Green concealers actually works to hide red blemishes on your face. It reduce redness and gives an even toned base before applying your foundation.

The yellow concealers helps hide eye dark circles and can be used as an eye shadow primer.  Since my eyes are a little too dark spending sleepless nights. I believe this yellow concealer will do some trick or better yet magic on my eyes.

yellow nxy concealer

The neutral shade of concealers covers imperfections and other blemishes on your face. This NYX HD concealer are in medium shade.

Tried it on my hand and looks like the color would blend well in my face.

So, does it works? You be the judge!  I have seen that there are less redness on my face and yes some of the pigmentation and dark spots has been covered but i guess I need some precision and learn more skills to do it.

Horse Oil : A review of Korean GUERISSON 9•COMPLEX HORSE OIL CREAM

I have been thinking of whether to share this skin care product which is causing a great rave and discussion within beauty bloggers and skin care users. I am adamant myself to believe that the use of horse oil in skin care products are just a natural thing. Whether you see this post good or not, you must understand that we all have our own opinions and my opinions may not be according to your liking but at the end of the day, it is still up to you whether you will buy them or not.

It’s around 1970’s when Toru Naoe founded the “Bayou” company.  He studied and observed the benefits of horse which actually paved the way  to extend the popularity around the western country. Around 2000 an application was made to the US Personal Care Products Council to recognize horse oil as part of  skincare ingredient.

Many essential oils have been a part of skin care products, widely used are argan oil, geranium, lavander, tea tree oil, almond oil, different oils has different purposes some it helps heal skin irritations and gives moisture and prevents aging but most of the oils i have known comes either from fruits, plants or flowers. But there are also products that comes from sheep’s wool. You might have heard about Beeswax in lip balms and even lipsticks has red dye carmine, which is full of crushed up beetle bodies and also the slime of snails which was proven to be effective in giving a smooth skin or have you heard about Pig collagen which is another strange beauty ingredient offered by  Holika Holika’s Pig Collagen Jelly Pack.

So, the big idea of using horse oil into your skin regimen seems a little bit odd thinking of how it was produced.  I’m not a vegetarian but there is still a certain what if’s in my mind.

For some country like Japan and Europe, horse meat has been a part of their delicacy, never tried it and just the thought of slaughtering horse makes my heart not at ease.

Authenticity

Since, it’s been causing a great rave, this product is now being reproduced by fake companies. So, make sure to get only the original product since we could not determine the oil that comes from the fake one.  To verify the authenticity of your Gurerisson 9 Complex cream, make sure to check the bar code below the box.  It looks like this.  Some of the boxes differs but most of them provides the details of the website and the manufacturers name and can you see the hologram mark on the bottle itself, it should and must have a name of Claire’s and decorated with some flowers.  

Claire’s has already made a post how to spot a fake product, you need to look into the label, box,. packaging, label and seal and of course the smell of the product.  I have not find a fake one but the original product has a citrus smell, it’s very prominent so you will not missed it.   The box also comes with a small scoop.

Yes, the box and packaging of the product is quite beautiful. It looks expensive inside and out but comes again the thought that this one comes from horses and i feel a bit weird about it.

Another plus factor on this product is it comes with a see though plastic spatula which is very hygienic instead of using just your fingers.

Uses & After Effect: 

So, how can you include this on your six or ten skin care routine as the South Korean Skin Care regimen?

This product was promoted by well known Korean celebrity Lee Honey but we all know how good her skin was.

The cream has a pale yellow color and smells awfully nice.  I haven’t tried it in my face yet but since I have read that this is great for chicken skins and smooth skin but since it has a heavy feeling, it’s best used during night time also to help the skin absorbs the product.

It doesn’t feel greasy or oily and fast absorbing.  I am still debating whether I will use this on my face since I have been using out Laneige (another South Korean skin care) and testing how it will work on me.  For the meantime, i have been using it on my legs, hands,  feet and my stretch marks.

Yes, the picture below show it all. Look how it gives a hydrating and glossy look (this one is unfiltered and shot on daylight). It’s moisturizing formula  preserves the skin in its best condition for 72 hours.

 Yes, it gives a long lasting effect and smooth feeling. Some says that they have break outs when using this on their face so make sure to do a spot test before finally using this in your face.

I bought this for Php 600 pesos or less than $3 on an online seller but you can get this online at Althea ( online shop shipped directly from Korea), you can also get this at Beauteque.com or Amazon but make sure to buy on trusted online shops only.

Pros

hydrating and helps smooth skin

for all skin type (great for dry skin)

hygienic

a little goes along the way (affordable)

absorbs quickly

Cons

the idea of horses on your skin

may cause break out to others

the texture is heavy (not suitable for morning)

Would i repurchase? I’m still thinking about it but honestly, it gives a smooth feeling on my skin.

Would you use a horse oil in your skin care regimen? Let me know your thoughts, reactions and ideas on the comment box below.

It is been a while i’m on a hunt of good products that can help minimize my face acne problems.  Yes, you must think it’s becoming a skin obsession but who doesn’t want to have a young looking and blemish free skin? Although it is not that terrible, i really hate seeing those dark marks and red spots and battling those imperfections is sometimes very annoying.

I have heard and read reviews about products used by many beauty bloggers and gurus but sometimes i have to think twice whether they really worked on their skin or their skin is just blessed with immaculate perfections and if it is indeed true prices of those products are just beyond the budget of moms like me.

So, when someone told me about this Innisfree Bija trouble skin blemish control toner, i know that i have to check it out and give it a try. natural from jeju

Innisfree Bija Trouble skin is composed of torreya seed oil and green complex and said to control blemishes for a clear looking skin. Since i purchase this directly from Korea, the back of the bottle is in korean so i could not read and understand what’s on there.

But i have checked out torreya seed and found out that Torreya which is an evergreen leaves may be found in Japan, some parts of Asia and it was called Bija in South Korea hence the name and can be found on the famous Jeju Island. It’s oil has many health benefits and one of them is to treat acne , inflamation and if eaten can help lower cholesterol levels.  Based on Innisfree World website, the Bija seeds are a rare ingredient that can only be used after they have survived 20 years in the wild.

I have been using this for almost a month and although i still get acne and pimples from time to time, it’s no longer as reddish and big as before but I still have to check if it can really clear out my blemishes.

How to Use:

After using your cleansing gel, facial foam you can use this skin (toner) and follow with your lotion or cream and then spot essence if you really have irritating pimples.

Recommendation:

I will recommend this for someone who are looking for inexpensive natural skin care products who are experiencing acne problems and blemishes that you want to get rid away.

Where to buy?

Too bad, there’s no Innisfree in the Philippines but you can get it from reliable online stores and you can order directly from Korea through Ibuybeauti.

Innisfree White Tone Up Sleeping Pack Review #innisfreeworld

innisfreeworld

I have often read from magazines and online websites that having a great skin starts from choosing the right products. 

When I first begin my search for a skin care product, I have to ask around and read interesting posts about real people talking about their skin care regime. I have tried american brand before but not the high end ones since I think they are just too costly for a mom like me. So, i have to look for something that will work fine with my skin yet worth for my money.

You must have heard about the buzz about whitening products. Some woman indeed wanted a whiter complexion so they have invest on products promising whitening effect. But for me, i don’t know whether I still have the chance to have that white glossy pore less skin effect since I was born with a natural asian tan but nevertheless I wanted to have a more clearer acne free skin.

innisfree white sleeping pack

I have learned that Korean ladies have more than 10 skin care regime and putting a sleeping pack is the last step on this regime. Ooh, you must say that I have skipped the first 9 but it’s not the case.  I haven’t done the ten steps yet but I am in between the middle and for almost three weeks of daily use of this product, I am definitely renewed.

This Innisfree White Tone Up Sleeping pack as specified in the package is formulated with fresh berry ingredients that helps refine skin texture and Vitamin B3 to brighten the skin, the gel type sleeping pack helps to present a brighter and milky complexion.

Directions:

During your evening skin care routine, apply an ample amount and pat on your entire face and neck  leaving the eye and lip area. Gently massage for absorption and yes massaging your face is indeed very helpful in so many ways. Just leave on overnight and rinse in the morning.

Benefits as promised

It has whitening factors , Jeju green complex – jeju green tea, white lotus, sasanqua leaf, orchid is contained.

No paraben, synthetic scent, synthetic hue, animal ingredients, mineral dust

Blueberry, Raspberry, Cloudberry, Gojiberry, Cranberry for natural whitening / brightening.

You can see the watery consistency of this product with small white like thing which i believe is the whitening ingredients. It has a distinct smell but not that bad so you don’t need to worry.  Just leave them on your face before going to sleep, you don’t need to rinse it off.

In the morning, you will feel the smoothness it gives in your face.  You only need a small amount so the tube will go along way perhaps 3 to 4 months depending on your usage. It’s a very lightweight product and gives soft skin every morning which I believe is what most woman would want.

Owl Coffee – Coffee Obsession

IMG_6129

If there is one thing that I am so obsessed, definitely it’s drinking coffee. I love coffee so much that i can’t last a day without drinking a cup. Here’s a new find for all coffee lovers like me out there.  I have come to know about Owl Coffee when i have won this set on a fellow bloggers online contest.  The name itself is so interesting that I told myself it’s really nice to try it.

Surprisingly, Owl coffee was established way back 1950’s and based on Singapore and now boasts for being the leader on their field, now, i wonder why i only learned about this coffee just now when the taste is definitely something every coffee lover would obsessed for.

Here’s something to know for first time Owl drinker like me;

The Straits Asian region weaves from Penang through the Straits of Malacca and down to Java – cultural crossroads that influence and create eclectic mix coffee drinking language and rituals.

OWL has created profile system to make sure you pick the blend that suits you perfectly.

Sweet: A good choice for those who are new to coffee drinking. Full- bodied and free of harshness, sweet coffee is easy on the palette – making it a delightful finish to a heavy meal or even as a substitute for dessert.

Strong: Strength in coffee flavour is something that would appeal to long-time coffee drinkers. Characterized by a dark tone and slightly bitter aftertaste, strong coffee is often enjoyed with warm toast at the start of a day.

Milky: The addition of milk to coffee brings out a rich full body and mild flavour. Milky coffee is the perfect accompaniment for the sweet biscuits and pastries taken during tea breaks. source:  owl.com.sg

Tried this Owl roast milky coffee and it was really delicious.  This is for those who prefer coffee with less sugar. The coffee tea version is also something to try.  I love how foamy it is when you stir it for several times.

IMG_6127

These are just two of the many flavors Owl coffee offers. You can get this on leading supermarket and malls.  Now, i’m procaffeinating.

 DAY 1 

A beautiful challenge to begin my week. When I accept the challenge , I know that I have to be flexible and do whatever the challenge told me so. So, for this first challenge, Jergens wanted me to share a bottle of the new Jergens Moisturizer to a complete stranger. 

jergens_skin_care1

 

Sharing is Caring as they say.  So, this first mission helps me to radiate not just physically but also emotionally.

jergenschallenge1

It’s great that a friend of my friend pays her a visit today and although she was obviously more whiter than me, she complains that since her pregnancy, her skin becomes drier.  I told her that since  she is experiencing dry and chappy skin, Jergens Daily Moisturizer is perfect for her.  It’s safe even if your pregnant since I remember using them on my belly before when the itchiness attacks.

Ms. Lolet was really happy learning about Jergens and although she’s familiar with the brand, she never tried it before , so she was very enthusiastic to learn more about it.  I’ll be keeping in touch with her to know how it works on her skin.

So, Challenge 1 is COMPLETE and I’m all set for another day of a beautiful collaboration.  Here’s a cheer for beautiful fair skin with Jergens!

DAY 2

It’s Day 2 and I really had a rough day today. My head is spinning like it’s going to explode any minute. No, I’m just kidding but this migraine is really giving me a hard time.  But on the good side, I still get the chance to enjoy playing with the kids even we all arrive home  a little bit late because of my daughter’s tutorial lesson.  I  even let my daughter took this picture for my second mission.

Jergens_2

The second mission looks really simple but gives me a great insight on how Jergens really works. Since i received this new Jergens Daily Moisture, it’s been a habit for me to used it after every shower.  But, just like the mission stated, i only apply Jergens on my left arm and the other without it. You can visibly see in the picture that my left arm is shining and looks smooth and more lighter. It was a surprised for me to see the difference since I usually put the moisturizer on both of my arms and legs so perhaps I was not able to see the big difference then.

jergens2

Look at the right hand. It looks like it’s dry and the color is uneven.  I’m definitely loving this new Jergens Daily Moisture because i know that I will definitely achieve  a more smoother skin than ever.

So, what do you think? Can you see the difference?  Mission 2 COMPLETED.

Day 3

Honestly, I have a rough day today.  My son is sick with fever due to his coughs and colds and I have to take a leave from office to stay home and check him from time to time. My body is not 100%  fine and it seems my migraine keeps on coming back.

But this Day 3 mission seems a good thing for me since I really need lots of fluids but skipping on my daily routine of drinking coffee seems a hard task for me.

jergens_3I really know that WATER is best not just for our skin but for our entire body and lack of it can even cause big problems.  But honestly, although I keep on telling my kids to drink a lot of water, I tend to forget it myself sometimes especially when I’m busy.

3.1

My first glass was consume before breakfast time. I usually make it a habit that after I wake up, i drink one glass of water before eating or taking a bath.  But since, i received the task, my first documented was 10:18 AM.

Although I’m on leave, i still need to fetch my daughter from school and eat lunch with her.  We went to the nearby mall so we don’t need to go home and stuck on traffic. So, my 2nd glass was around 11:36 AM.

3.2

So after sending her to school, i went home and check on my little son. He was still awake at that time so we watch a little bit and went to take a nap.  My third glass was registered at 1:28 PM.  I wake up at around 3:00 and consume another glass around 3:49 PM.

3.3

My fifth glass took a while at around 7:44 after we went home fetching my daughter from her tutor class and before eating our dinner since I really feel exhausted and my head is heavy.  My sixth glass came shortly around 8:07 after taking our dinner.

3.4

And after the kids had their medicines and settled in bed. I immediately went to the computer to do my daily task, checking my e-mails, waiting for any advertisers or answering inquiry and catching up with my facebook and doing my daily social rounds. So, my seventh glass was around 8:35 PM and since my head is really not fine and although I don’t want to drink some medicines, I think i have to do this time so I can think clearly so my eight glass was consume at around 9:31 PM.

Time check, it’s already 10:34 PM and my mouth is already dry and will have my 9th glass of water for today. That’s a great water day for me and looks like I have to do this everyday so that my body would get the daily needed water consumption.

Mission 3 is completed and I am now signing off for today and check on first with my little boy.

Day 4

It seems only yesterday when I accepted this challenge and yes the days are really fast and one week to go before the end of October which means it’s less than two months before the Christmas season.  The kids are already excited to set up our Christmas tree but they have to wait until after the celebration of all souls day.

For this day, I’ve got a nice surprised from the mail as part of the mission.

jergens_4

Apart from giving yourself a treat. It’s really nice to give back the love to others specially for the people we cared about.  As much as I wanted to treat them at Cabalen yet too bad since we don’t have that here.  I love Cabalen, it’s one place we always goes to when my Dad was still alive.  We definitely raves about their eat all you can package wherein you can enjoy a sumptuous meal of different Capampangan dishes.

Although, I cannot personally treat my mom, I’m definitely sending this gift certificate for her to enjoy along with my other siblings since she just celebrated her birthday last October 21.  (and i’m going to ask her to send me their pics for a nice remembrance)

But today, I would not want to miss this opportunity to dine and have a good laugh with my own family, after all the true mission of this day’s challenge is to find time and nurture your relationship to the people you cared the most. (look at that little one, his seems so fine yet he has this terrible cough)

jergens_6

Anyway, for today’s mission, I would love to share with you one food me and my family loves to eat.

IMG_2797

Teach your children to eat vegetables as soon as they started eating.  In that way, they will learn to love it and eating vegetable will become a habit.

Chopsuey is one of my kids favorite for the fact that there are shrimps, carrots and mushroom on it. Add a little corn and it will not last longer in front of the table. 

It’s easy to make, prepare all the ingredients before hand.  Pre-heat your pan and saute garlic and onions, include the shrimps, mushrooms and bits of pork or beef.

Put the remaining ingredients like  sayote, broccoli or cauliflower, carrots.  Add a little bit of water  Let them cook for around 10 minutes.  Add the peas because this one is easy to cook.

For the sauce to thicken, you can use a little flour dissolved in the water and place them on the boiling sauce. The sauce will then have a thicker consistency.

Chopsuey and mixed vegetables are very easy to make.  Even if your a busy mom like me, cooking time will be fun especially with the help of your children. Having a healthy diet is really very important. As a mom, you need to think of a variety of dishes for your children to enjoy. Always remember that having a Healthy diet is synonymous to healthy skin.

Tokyo Love Soap: Best Love Soap Review

tokyo love tokyo

Smelling fresh, smooth and glowing, that’s what we always wanted for our skin.  I have heard many women raving about this Tokyo Love Soap and for someone as curious as me, i told myself that I have to get hold of this soap and experience it for myself. But checking out the website, my initial reaction was it’s not as affordable as I thought it was be and thinking of the shipping fees that I might incurred.

But then, I’m so blessed and thankful that I am a blogger because I  get the chance to try amazing products for free.  Tokyo Love was so willing to send over a sample of their premium brand soap for me to try.  For  a fair skin like me, it was always my dream to be more whiter and my skin to be smoother.

So, let’s begin with the introduction since there are many news and talks that there are online shops selling fake Tokyo Love Soap.

Tokyo Love Soap as claimed was 100% organic and vegan.  Since I could not understand the words on the packaging, i have to rely on their website for the translation and description.

My Two Cents :

It was so far the most expensive soap i’ve got to try.  Some online shop sells it for 850 Philippine Pesos and for the premium as high as 1K.  Although, you might say that it’s expensive, the benefits and effect afterwards was somewhat rewarding.  It’s one of the reason why my skin today is soft and smooth.

I can attest that my skin is more subtle that before.  But for the whitening effect, i could not really attest to that since I guess, continue usage is still important and play a vital role for attaining what I desired.  Overall, the experience is worth it. Tokyo Love Soap is indeed something worth using.  No wonder it was still the number one intimate soap in Asia since it was first introduced in Japan.

Where can you buy:

 Since the growing popularity of this soap, make sure to buy only on the authorized distributor or better yet, order directly from their website since they ship internationally.
