Avon's ANEW

I've tried all sorts of face creams, mostly local products, as imported ones are so expensive..As I've said before, Moisturizers need not be expensive. Local products can also do the same tricks! They can also deliver on their promises of a supple and smooth skin..

My Olay Regenerist has been all but used up so I've ordered another face cream and an eye cream by Avon.

I've heard a lot of good things about Avon's Anew line. It's time to try!

Bottom: REJUVENATE 24 hour Eye Cream Day Cream SPF 25 Night Cream

Maybelline's BB Cream

BB creams or Blemish Balm creams are so popular nowadays. What exactly is a BB cream?

A little info:
BB cream is among Asia's hottest beauty products right now. It is said that the formula originated from Germany where dermatologists prescribe it to heal laser skin surgery because it has skin-regenerating properties.
BB creams are referred to as the secret of Korean actresses. Korean cosmetic companies like Skinfood, Hanskin and Etude were the first to adapt the technology from Germany and started making their own formulas. And its popularity has now spread all over Asia and Europe.

Maybelline now has a BB cream. This one-shade-fits-all cream is a miracle skin perfector(as written in the cover).
I have yet to try a BB cream(shame :)); this is the first time for me to use one. I have high hopes that this cream will truly live up to what it promises! :)

Maybelline's 8-in-1 BB Cream

It says:
  • Moisturizes like skin care
  • Protects like sun block
  • Covers like a foundation

Skincare!

You should start caring for your skin in your 20's, as what most beauty mavens always say.. It's never too early to start something as important as skincare, especially if you always stay under the sun. UV rays and our skin are not the best of friends...

The 3 important steps in skincare:
(4 if u include exfoliation)

1. Cleansing
Finding a good cleanser is key. Good cleansers need not be expensive. Avoid bar soaps as they tend to dry the skin. Choose creamy cleansers if you have dry skin or clear cleansers if you have oily skin.

I use Pond's cold cream because I have dry skin. I simply apply the cream at night to remove makeup, then I wipe it off with tissue.

2. Toning
Toners are meant to remove all traces of makeup, oil and dirt. There are lots of good toners to try: Clean and Clear, Pond's, Belo's, Nivea..

3. Moisturizing
Moisturizers seal moisture into skin. A good one to try: Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream which has 'hyaluronic acid' as secret ingredient.

4. Exfoliation
Most people exfoliate once or twice a week. You can exfoliate by using scrubs. They remove the top layer of dead skin cells that tend to dull the complexion. Use a gentle scrub like St. Ive's.

I'd like to share with you guys these 2  very informative videos:

Want Nago?

Another thirst-quencher for the summer season...
With taro and nago, super texture.. winner!

 so many different flavors to choose from

 My favorite: Choco Loco Super


Quick! Lets go  to QUICKLY!
NOW NA..

Really Whitens Skin!

If you want to have fair skin, here's one to try:  MESTIZA  Complete Herbal Soap
Active Ingredients: Papaya, Banana, Carrot, Virgin Coconut Oil and Calamansi

Wow, that's a lot of ingredients. So, that's why they named it complete! :))
Imagine 5 whitening ingredients in one soap?! "Pag di ka pa naman pumuti nyan!"

Actually, a friend of mine has been using this soap for months already and I can really see the difference.
Although they say I already have fair skin, I still want to try  because I'm fond of papaya soaps.

For pimples, black spots, stains on skin, sunburn, blisters, acne, skin allergies, hemorrhoids, bad odor, psoriasis, baldness, etc.

Loco over POTATO

What is it about you, lowly potato?
There's just something about you that I really, really like.
Why did they call you lowly?
There's nothing lowly about you at all.
You are full of nutrients,
and only the 4th largest crop in the world!
after rice, wheat and corn...
See?

I like you either mashed or fried
in salads or as chips, so versatile
any which way is A-okay.
So now you are not so lowly
because for me, I regard you
highly!
