Giveaway Loots

This post would be about the gifts I received from two bloggers/ blogs that I stalk almost everyday- Miss Gem of Rare Vanity and Product Arena by Celline Reyes. At the moment, I can't hold one yet but soon, I know I'd be able to sport my own giveaway here. (^-^)

Going back... I was lucky to be chosen as their Commenter of the Month (both for the month of May) and I must say that the prizes they sent me were all awesome! Some of the items here were already stashed away in my mom's and kapatid's drawer.

I am yet to take photos of the package sent to me by Miss Celline; however, the gifts from Miss Gem was delivered to me about a month ago and I already have used most of them. Like what I have mentioned above, I gave some to my brother and to my mom and they were both very happy! 

Etude House Happy TeaTime Green Tea Cleansing Foam, Body Recipe Papaya Facial Wash, Hortaleza Dermatox Facial Toner, H20+ Cleansing Water and mosituriser

It's Potent! Eye cream from Benefit, falsies and Etude HouseMini Brow Class.

Excel lip gloss, Colour Collection eye shadow, blush and lipstick.

Cream Silk Dry Rescue conditioner

SanSan BB Cream in Beige and some BB cream samples

The Papaya Scrub I used to shared with my brother until I got tired of asking him to return it to my toiletries so I had him keep it instead. He's been using it for two weeks and I can see that his face is brighter now. He also told me that it was effective in keeping new zits at bay.

The Dermatox Facial Toner is now my mom's best friend. She rarely uses toner but she has religiously used this for ten days, I believe and she also has clearer, more radiant skin now.

I gave the Cream Silk conditioner to my younger sister since at the time being, I only use sulfate-free hair products for my chemically-treated hair.

While hubby uses the cleansing foam from Etude House from time to time. He loves the green tea scent (although it was very mild) and that it didn't dry out his skin too much. The tube is almost half empty now. 

The rest? I kept all for myself. Haha. (^-^)

It really feels wonderful when you get rewarded/ appreciated. Actually, the mere fact that these bloggers share with us their stories and reviews is already a gift, much more getting a prize, right? As a frustrated blogger who look up to them, I feel happy whenever they would reply to my comments and questions. It makes me want to come back to their blog more and more.

That's it for now. Again, thanks a ton for dropping by and to the two beautiful lady bloggers- Miss Gem and Miss Celline for all the freebies!


  1. wow dame sis ah! congrats!


  2. You've got quite a loot there. :) You are indeed very consistent in commenting to blogs I have no doubt you deserve to win 2 Commenter Of The Month. :)

    I am looking forward to reading reviews on the Benefit eye cream, the Colour Collection lipstick, and the cleansing water. The other stuff look amazing too.

    Dawn | Keep Calm & Beautify

    1. Hi Miss Dawn! Yes, I have been using the eye cream for four days now and I plan to share my "review" prolly after ten more days just to make sure that I have seen its full potential =) The lipstick, I will share that soon too! Now the H20 Cleansing Water is still untouched but I intend to use them prolly by the end of the month.

      Thanks a bunch for dropping by!

  3. I once joined a monthly reader give away too... I've won din naman... kaso it's very tiring. Lalo na dami kakumpetenxa. It's not easy to think of what to say pa naman when I don't have a lot of experience with high end skincare products and make up. One of the reason why I want to join din is to give some to my mom and tita. They get jelly kasi whenever they see me using something.

    1. I agree. Nakakapagod nga mag-comment pero on my end, since I have not much to do, I end up reading a lot of stuff on line. Winning as COM wasn't planned, hilig ko lang magbasa at maki-chika be it in person or on line (^-^) Thanks by the way for dropping by!

  4. Let me know what you think about that San San BB! :) Great loot!

    1. Hi CJ! Thanks for dropping by. The San San BB Cream didn't work well with my skin. Aside from making my face look and feel all the more oily, I had breakouts too. The packaging looks promising pa naman sana :((

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
