Last July, Shiseido Philippines had a promo wherein we can exchange any empty or unused makeup or skincare product for some of their GC’s. Makeup was equivalent to a Php 500 GC while any skincare product is equals to 2 GC’s. The catch is only one GC can be used for each item you’ll purchase and only for selected products, not including their recent releases. So basically, Php 500 will be deducted from any Shiseido item as long as they’re included in the promo. It was supposed to end last August 31 but Shiseido is extending it until September 15! (YAAASSSS!!!)
Anyway, here are some of the products I bought that I had been eyeing from their store. Continue reading →
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 →
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.

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.
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 →
