July Skin Care Essentials

Wotcha, gorgeous ladies! The weather as of late has been sooo unpredictable. It'd be sunny during the day and then would rain at night and this has made my skin dry like the Sahara desert! LOL.

Anyway, I'd love to share with you my current skin essentials. I normally change the products that I use every two months just so my skin won't be immune to them especially if they're affordable and effective. So here goes.

Beauche Kojic Soap - My brother sold me this soap since they were tasked by their professor to sell at least 5 bars (part of their entrepreneurship class which I doubt! Prolly that professor's a reseller. haha). I loved it's tangerine scent and that it does not sting! Been using this for almost two weeks now and my colleagues have noticed that I am slowly getting my lighter skin tone back.

Etude House Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam - Some reviews said that this tends to dry the skin but luckily for me, that didn't happen. I use this twice a day, four times a day and it has helped keep my skin squeaky clean. Love it's green tea scent too!

St. Ive's Apricot Scrub - This scrub has been very helpful in getting rid of the old skin on my face. I use this alternately with the cleansing foam. I also liked it's mild fruity scent.

Myra Facial Moisturiser - This one's not in the photo above because I have ran out of stock when I took that shot. LOL. I am using the red tube and this is the only product that I've been using for almost a year now. Very effective in keeping my skin soft and moisturised.

Celeteque Acne Spot Corrector Gel - I have this two pimple marks on my right cheek that has stayed for two or three months now. It's a bit lighter now thanks to this corrector gel!

Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream - Since I have been on graveyard shift for almost four months now, I rarely get six hours of sleep thus, hello dark eye circles! Hello eye bags! This cream helped a lot in minimizing puffy and dark eye bags. Very effective as I've seen the results before the 10th evening of using it!

Nivea Body Milk Extra Whitening Cell Repair & Protect lotion - I abhor greasy lotion that's why I love Nivea lotions a lot! They're easily absorbed by my skin and very effective. This is already the 2nd bottle that I've consumed since their May sale and I have one more sitting at my drawer waiting to be used. Admit it, you also hoarded Nivea products during that sale? Haha.

Well that would be it for my July skin care essentials. Care to share what products keep your skin clean, supple and soft?

Cheers ladies!


  1. The Celeteque Acne Spot Corrector Gel looks promising. I will look for it on my next trip to Manila :) I have pimple marks on my face too and Paula's Choice glycolic acid is helping a lot in lightening them :)

    1. Yes Miss Jacq, you might want to try the Celeteque Corrector Gel. It's only around PhP160+ if I'm not mistaken. :)

  2. Haven't tried any Etude Facial Foams yet but it looks promising. :) There are a lot of variants I see whenever I enter their store and I get overwhelmed. :)

    1. I feel the same. I've only been to their store several times and I always find a bunch of products that I wanted to buy.

  3. Mejo sketchy yan professor na yan ah! Haha Seryoso someone should look into that. Anyhoo I never got to hoard any Nivea products during the sale boohoo. :( Hope they bring it back maybe around December. :)

    1. Hindi pa naman naulit na pinagbenta yung brother ko. Pero if it will happen again, I'll report him sa admin ng school (^-^)
      Regarding the sale. I hope so too that they have another sale this December.

  4. Staple na sa skin care essentials ako ang St. Ives Apricot Scrub since college days pa. Kahit marami nang newly developed facial scrubs ngayon bumabalik pa din ako sa St. Ives.

    1. I agree =) This has been my mom's fave and she passed it unto me. Affordable yet super effective!

Withdraw Paypal Funds To Your BPI Express Teller Account

Hello there my fellow online adventurers! Paypal is indeed the world's most loved way to pay and get paid. Most of the time, you get your payments sent to your Paypal account, right?

Renew Placenta Herbal Beauty Soap

Wotcha ladies! This one is long overdue and the product is not new in the market BUT I felt I needed to share with you this amazing whitening soap. This wouldn't cost you more than a hundred pesos which makes it all the more wonderful, right?

Introducing, the newly improved Renew Placenta Herbal Beauty Soap! This one's so common, you've probably seen them in the grocery store a hundred of times now. However there's another placenta soap being sold in the market so to avoid confusion, just look for the soap that has Pauleen Luna's face on it. 

Ingredients:  High-grade coconut oil, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoate, Sodium palmitate, Cocodiethanolamide & Placenta extract.

Would you believe that this 135g bar only costs PhP 85? There's a smaller bar that's sold at PhP 55, too! I was amazed when I saw the price tag so I got one for myself and my mom.

I cut the bar in half - not only to avoid it from melting but to save it from my youngest brother. Hilig din nya gamitin …

The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain Review

I'm anemic and look pale when I'm bare-faced. So whenever I go out, I try to look as healthy and pretty (lol) as possible. But the weather's been so hot (to think that it's already October!) and chances are, when I go out and put make up on, it'll fade in a couple of hours. Effort lang talaga ang magpa-pretty, gahd! That's when I started using lip and cheek tints. And now, I'll share with you one of my favourites-
The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain.

Burnt Face & HHN Sunflower Beauty Oil (Review)

In my constant search for a new moisturizer that I can use, I came across Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil. This one is very popular and a favorite among ladies. After some research, I decided to try it out. I had high hopes on the product since it claims 23 miracles, so how did it go, you ask?

Mestiza (The Healthy Skin Soap)

Wotcha ladies! Yes, this is another (affordable) whitening soap post. I am a big fan of Miss Kaycee of Kikaysikat and she recommended that I try this soap. Drum roll for Mestiza Soap!

Price: Php 53/ 120g Available in all supermarkets and drugstores
