DHC Deep Cleansing Oil | Review

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

The DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is not the first cleansing oil I’ve used but it’s certainly the first cleansing oil I’ve come to truly appreciate. This is also around the time when I learned the importance of “double cleansing” in the world of Asian skincare. Continue reading


Japan Makeup and Skincare Haul


Hello, hello!

Today’s just a showcase of what I bought from Japan. This should’ve been up a long time ago but life interfered. Anyway, don’t expect a major haul because I was only there for a short time and since there were a lot of places to go and see, I didn’t focus on stuffing my luggage with a lot of beauty products.

Curious Girl Asks: Which Makeup Cleansers Do You Use?

Makeup cleansers

I have a lot of questions on my mind. Some are makeup-related, and some are well, not. But for quite some time, I’ve been wanting to ask anyone who is willing to answer this question about makeup removers.

Which type do you prefer? Lotions? Oils? Facial wipes?

I have about more than half a dozen of different makeup removers sitting in my vanity table (the ones in the photo above are just some of them) and I don’t have a particular favorite. As long as they get the job done without irritating my eyes, I’ll keep on using them. Although I’m always on the look out for new wipes, it doesn’t mean I’ll abandon the rest. But tell me, what do you guys use to take off all the junk from your face at the end of the day?

And if you would be kind enough to tell me your favorite brands in the comments below and the reason why it’s your favorite, that would be lovely.

ZA Cosmetics Deep Cleansing Oil

ZA Deep Cleansing Oil

Before I retire for the night, it is imperative that I take off ALL the makeup I had put on in the morning. I’ve been using the Bifesta Sebum Cleansing Lotion as soon as I saw it displayed in stores last year. I was content with it but I wanted to experience for myself what the fuss is surrounding cleansing oils. I mean, what kind of beauty adventurer would I be if I didn’t stray every now and then from something that works to try out something new?

I actually wanted to try Shu Uemura’s Anti/Oxi Skin Refining Cleansing Oil but a small 150mL bottle costs Php 2,295 around here. Say what? Uh, no thanks? I’ll have to pass on that at the moment.

So I took to searching for a cheaper alternative. And there was ZA Cosmetics. Continue reading

August Mini Haul

August mini haul

Hello there!

This haul did not happen in one day because for the past 2 weeks, I’ve been purchasing items one by one. Curiosity sometimes gets the better of me and I end up giving a few things a go without a second thought. Before I know it, I’m in front of a cashier paying for bits I impulsively pick up.

Well, I’d like to share with you guys what I got, some I’m already trying out and others I have yet to open (yes, I can be lazy a blogger).

  • Snoe Beauty Hair Heroes Extreme Curl Defining Creme. I actually wanted to get the Super Fresh Texturizing Beach Waves from the same brand but the SA personally recommended this instead. She told me she has tried both and she prefers the creme one as it holds a curl better and lasts longer than the other.
  • Za Cosmetics Deep Cleansing Oil. This was one of those impulse buys. I’ve wanted to try it for ages ever since I heard Za was coming back to the Philippines. Incidentally, Victoria from The Vee Side casually mentioned how this was a disappointment to her. Then a week after, I was in Watson’s checking out a couple of things. I passed by Za, chatted with the SA and poof! I suddenly have this in my hands. Completely forgot about what I read. Oh well, I’ll just have to see how it works for me.
  • Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil. Another impulse buy, you guys. I featured this when I was challenged by Julep for a DIY pedicure when I used it as a cuticle softener. Other than that, I’ve been mainly using it as an overall body and under eye moisturizer. I must say, it’s pretty damn good.
  • Beauty Buffet Masks. Since last month, I’ve been getting into these facial masks. It all started with a resolve of mine to finally use up some skincare samples and gifts I received. I’ve been using one per week and I’m trying to make it a part of my skincare routine at night. So far, I’m loving how it makes my skin so soft in the morning.
  • Gatsby Moving Rubber Loose Shuffle. My frustration with having loose, wavy curls got the attention of my friend who was sporting some seriously gorgeous ones the day we had lunch at the Powerplant Mall in Rockwell, Makati. She insisted I try the small-sized container.
  • Limecrime Velvetines. After months of lemming and overthinking, I finally gave in and ordered 2 shades. I know they are much raved. I’m hoping my dry lips can take them. Hang tight to see which ones I got.

So, did any of you picked up some new items? Or are you familiar with my purchases? Do tell.
