Review: ELF Studio HD Blush

I don't usually experiment when it comes to blushes but somehow, I found myself caught in a blur of different blushes lately. I started with lip and cheek tints when I was in high school. Tints turn into powder blushes as I reach college. And now, I'm discovering HD and baked blushes. I don't know if I should be excited or confused with all the choices. Haha. But for whatever reason, I wanted to do blog reviews on the different kinds so I ended up purchasing a few online.Let's start with the most interesting one, the HD blushes. <3

Review: Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel

Today I finally have time to spare time and the first order of business: take blog photos and edit them. I have so much stories and reviews to share that literally I don't know where to start. As I'm trying to get my groove back, why not start with a short review on one of the products I've been using (and abusing) ever since it came out in the market - the all new Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel!
Product Description:

The New Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel contains Pearl Essence known to whiten skin and an oxygenated formulation which refreshes and cleanses effectively without drying skin. Because of its mild formulation that locks in moisture, the Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel is suitable for sensitive skin.

Shiseido Salutes Moms + New Robinsons Place Manila Branch!

Being a mom is a full-time job and yet we tend to overlook their role in keeping the family balanced. A day each year is not enough to show our appreciation but it's a start. It's always a good idea to treat our moms to a fabulous "me time" every once in a while. A few days ago, I was invited to Shiseido Salutes Moms event to celebrate women and their newest branch in Robinsons Place Manila.
Shiseido is one of the luxury brands that I don't mind saving up for especially when it comes to skincare products. To them, everything they do is an art that requires certain precision and diligence - even makeup removal! During the event, I got to learn more about skincare and basic makeup application.. the Shiseido way, of course. And who better to teach us than their very own training head, Ms. Carmel Villongco.

Sexy Clean Revolution: BETADINE® Feminine Wash

I know majority of my readers here are ladies, well, this is a beauty blog after all. So why not talk about something intimate. A topic a lot for you are curious about but couldn't openly ask other. I'm talking about feminine hygiene. So if you [yes, you, the one reading this] are a guy, I suggest clicking on a different tab or post, haha. It's not going to be pretty. Proceed at your own risk. :P
Just last week I was invited to a fun afternoon at Intercontinental Manila for BETADINE® I Do It Twice A Week campaign. Before we go to the nitty gritty parts of common misconceptions and proper hygiene down *there*, let me show you what happened during the event.

May Member of the Month + April Winner!

What do you think of the widely popular #flatlay photos on Instagram? I just love the clean, minimalist look of the photos. I'm slowly appreciating the art of #flatlay, haha. So much so that I even consulted Google on how to make proper flatlays for postings. Hashtag NOOB! Haha. Pareng Google said that to get great impact, the flatlay should have a have a plain background and one color to be highlighted so when I was practicing my flatlay-ing skills, I grabbed all the pink products I could find and fit them all in one frame. Tadaaa! The products in my first color-coordinated flatlay would be the prizes for the most active member for the last month of summer. <3
Prizes: Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel, Covergirl Cheekers, Belo Underarm Whitening Cream, Belo Whitening Roll-on Deodorant, SkinStation Pink n` Plump Lip Plumper
