I'm Mom to 2 wonderful daughters & 3 adorable cats (also 2 gerbils). I am married to an amazing man!
I love testing all sorts of products, especially in the beauty category; it's also super helpful when I get to try out stuff that I can use around the house or for my husband/kids/pets.
I am SO in love with K-Beauty products. If you like my lists please make sure to leave a comment telling me which of your lists you want me to check out. Have a great day! :)
Review for: I CREATE, I RULE, I AM WORTH IT more...
Another amazing L'Oréal product! I received three free shades in a voxbox to review: I Create, I Am Worth It, and I Rule. I Am Worth It was my favorite. I Rule was a wee bit pale for my skin tone but still wearable. Nice packaging, very sleek.
The more nude shades were very forgiving, though the bold red shade wasn't terribly hard to apply thanks to the awesome teardrop applicator. Consistency is quite liquidy, but nicely pigmented and dries down beautifully. Minimal transfer, doesn't bleed, and feels like it's barely there. This lipstick stains so after hours of wear and consuming drinks and food, it fades gracefully. Reapplying doesn't feel weird like some liquid lipsticks do.
My lips are pretty dry, but this formula wasn't as drying compared to other products I've tried. These shades were a wonderful addition to my makeup collection, and I look forward to purchasing more shades!
Review for: 29N Light-Medium (Light To Medium Skin With Neutral Undertones) more...
I was really excited to try this, and even splurged on it because $20 is a bit more than I usually spend on concealer. I thought it was just ok. It is thick and has coverage, but I find that it is drying on me and makes my fine lines worse. I've tried different products like moisturisers, sheet masks, primers, etc. to try and make it work for me, but I always have the same problem.
I think it is hit or miss depending on the person! It just wasn't as great for me, personally.
This lip balm smells so good! It is good at moisturising and nourishing my lips, I just find myself reapplying more than I'd like. It isn't the best lip balm I've used but I did use my tube of this up, and it lasted a long time. I might purchase again in the future.
I like layering this over an overnight lip mask or a moisturising balm! I actually have this in creme brulee. On its own it is okay, but I think it is better used to lock in moisture. The consistency is just like regular Vaseline.
I'm half Filipino; my mom is from Bicol. I grew up in the US with a mix of Filipino and American culture. My mom had a few brands of bagoong throughout the years that she would use, but this brand was always my favourite! Now I buy this for my household. I love this bagoong with green mango, kare kare, rice, sinigang, and so much more! It is the perfect amount of salty. Highly recommended!
I won a set via Influenster from Viktor & Rolf a while ago after participating in a virtual vox! It was full size body cream, roll on, and perfume.
Because these things are a bit more than I can generally afford, I use the products for special moments. This perfume smells SO good! It is a sweet floral scent, super feminine. It is heavenly and luxurious. I feel like I leave a trail of flowers wherever I walk with this stuff.
One day when I do run out, I plan on having saved up enough to splurge on a Flowerbomb product! It is such a special scent to me.
I received a free Elizavecca Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack from 08liter to try and review! It came in a cute box and the product packaging is really cute, too.
Upon opening the product, I saw that it came with a little spatula, which I think is really nice! I'm not exactly sure how to describe what this stuff smells like, but I find it to be sweet and really pleasant. I know some people don't like scents in their facial products but this one didn't bother me.
The consistency is like jelly, which is fun to jiggle, but it easily turns to more of a liquid consistency. I used it as an overnight mask, and it was very moisturising! My skin was glowy after using this product. I have combination skin but it didn't seem oily to me. I didn't break out at all from it and I feel that it made my skin look better. A little bit of this product goes a long way!
Overall I'm extremely happy with this collagen jella pack. I think Elizavecca is a really good Korean brand and I definitely recommend it! I am interested in purchasing more of this pack when I run out.
I had good experiences with L'Oreal clay masks thanks to a previous voxbox, so when these scrubs came out I had to get one! I purchased the kiwi sugar scrub.
It smells soooo good, and has little kiwi seeds in addition to sugar granules! It is such a pleasant scrub, not too harsh. My skin glows afterwards and feels so smooth!
I also use this as a lip scrub as suggested on the directions. If you do this make sure you don't eat it! It isn't supposed to be ingested like you could with some sugar scrubs, and once I accidentally got some in my mouth and it doesn't taste good. It leaves my lips soft and smooth, too! But, I prefer to use it on my face.
When I use up all of this container I will purchase one of the other scrubs from this brand! I would repurchase this one but am interested in trying them all. I just don't have a need for 3 sugar scrubs all at once!
I think I received this for either free or discounted via 08liter (I think it was complementary to review but it's been a while so I can't remember).
This Elizavecca serum is great! It is scented but I think it's a pleasant scent and it doesn't bother me. This serum makes my skin soft and moisturised. Absorbs really fast into my skin and takes about 5-10 minutes before I can feel how soft my skin is.
I'll be really sad when I'm out, and will have to purchase more! This has become one of my favourite products in my skincare routine. I really like using it along with the Elizavecca Bifida Ampule!
