Cleanance EXPERT: Eau Thermale Avene Launches The Solution To Acne-Prone Skin

Breakouts spare no one. Lucky are those who only get a few pimples here and there every once in a while, but in reality, no one is absolutely safe. I started getting pimples when I was in high school and to this day, pimples still surfaces every now and then. So no, it's not just a puberty thing. Given our environment, our choice in food and the constant stress we are in, we all do need a hard-working skincare range we could trust to keep the balance.
Eau Thermale Avène is a trusted brand in skin care as it soothes, softens and restores the skin’s natural balance. In fact, more than 300 stringent biological, pharmacological and clinical studies have been conducted on the Thermal Spring Water to prove its healing properties. This core ingredient has been used for centuries at the Avène Hydrotherapy Center to address even the most severe dermatological conditions like atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, ichthyosis and burns.

Review: BYS Jumbo Liquid Eyeliner Pen

Generally speaking, I can skip eyeshadow on a normal day but never eyeliner. It's one of the things that could instantly change a look. Somehow my eyes look dull, tired and droopy when I don't line them properly so I have to say that eyeliner has become a necessity for my work makeup, along with concealer and lip balm of course.
Product Description:

BYS Jumbo Tip Liquid Eyeliner Pen. This liquid eyeliner pen features a large pointed brush - with a flexible tip for precision & control - which allows you to create thicker more dramatic lines or super thin ones depending on what you need. This liquid eyeliner also boasts a waterproof and smudgeproof formula so you don't have to worry about it all day.

Giving Flavorfully This Holiday Season with The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Giving Journal

There's this post that's been circulating on Facebook ever since the announcement of start of the "sticker season" for the coffee house planners. It irks me how easy it is for others to judge those who buy (and I quote) "expensive coffees just to get a planner they never really use". Like, seriously? We're not being pa-sosyal, okay? Can't it be for the simple fact that I genuinely love coffee and that I need the caffeine boost to keep on working during late nights? Sheesh! People these days.. so quick to judge, so slow to understand. :/
Well, in the spirit of the merriest season, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has taken upon itself the mission to spread joy in all forms, giving flavor, one cup at a time. In launching their two new holiday drinks, they are also introducing the best comeback to those who judge us for spending more than Php8 for a cup of coffee - no, not everyone likes coffee sachets! Haha. See, what if I tell you that  by buying coffee at CBTL, you're actually sending someone to school? *know that I'm smiling smugly as I type this, haha*

#DoveDeoGetaway: Experience Real Care from Dove Deodorants And Win a Getaway for Two!

Like me, more and more women have turned to underarm hair removal mainly because we are aware that plucking, shaving and waxing actually damage our underarm skin, leading to irritation and bumpiness. Eww chicken skin! :( But as the diode laser targets the hair follicles to prevent hair regrowth, I rely on deodorants to not only keep me fresh all day long but also to deliver a bit of skincare benefits to help lighten my underarm.
And I belive Dove has the key. Dove believes that everyone deserves to experience real care. With its unique 1⁄4 moisturizing cream, Dove lessens underarm skin irritation due to plucking, shaving and waxing, leaving women with lighter and smoother underarms.

November 2015 BDJ Box: [Pink Sugar] Sugar, Spice And Everything Nice

Okay now that I've finally tried Pink Sugar, I regret not being able to attend their media event last month even more. I was supposed to attend but got held up at the salon all afternoon. I did get upset for not making it but I got over it quickly. However, now that I got to try their makeup.. Argh! I can't tell you how much I'm kicking myself for not making it to the event. *sob*
Good thing BDJ Box decided to curate a whole box around the new brand. Pink Sugar is a recently-launched, homegrown brand that offers promising products at affordable prices. Although I missed the event, I kept seeing bloggers rave about this brand so I'm beyond excited to try them myself! Yey, finally!

October 2015 BDJ Box: [Celeteque] Be 2X Beautiful + Giveaway!

There's this radio station I like to listen to when I'm driving, and they have this quick segment wherein they'd share a few little things they're thankful for that day and then pause a bit so the listeners could do the same. And today I'm thankful for the APEC holiday; not for the relentless traffic and walkathon I had to endure, but the 2 extra days mid-week so I can finally catch my breathe. Well, a day and a half to be exact since I still had to work at home today. Haha. But still, it's better than no rest day at all.

First order of business is to finish as much blog-related backlogs as humanly possible before going back to Makati. What better way to get my groove on than to start with unboxing posts!
This post maybe a month late but that doesn't lessen my excitement about its contents. Celeteque, one of my trusted skincare brands, recently launched a new makeup line, and I was certain that it was only a matter of time before BDJ Bellas get their hands on them, too. I actually attended the media launch for this, and I just love the idea for combining the benefits of both skincare and makeup because honestly, with all the stressors in our environment, our skin needs all the help it could get to keep up. Do your skin a favor and consider how your makeup actually affects your skin. *wink!
