Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioners | Review

Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioners

Last month, I received Dove’s new 1 Minute Conditioners in the mail. I was so excited to be one of the first people in the Philippines to try out their new conditioners because I have been using Dove for years — I think for more than 20 years now. Their bath and skincare products have long been a part of our bathrooms and vanity tables. Here are my thoughts about them now. Continue reading


EYENLIP Professional Hair Ampoule LULU | Review

Eyenlip Professional Hair Ampoule LULU

So here’s another Eyenlip product review for you guys. This is a hair ampoule and this will be the first time I’m reviewing something like this. To start off, my hair is fuss-free, I think. I mean, I leave it well alone enough and strands don’t fall too much. Having fine hair all my life, I’m always hesitant to to undergo any kind of hair treatment even if they promise all sorts of benefits because the risk of something going wrong — or my hair all falling off, is there. Anyway, here’s my review of the hair ampoule. Continue reading

Snoe Beauty Hair Heroes Extreme Curl Defining Hair Creme

Snoe Hair Heroes Extreme Curl Creme

Your hair is your crowning glory, right? Well, I’ve always dreamed of having lush, gorgeous wavy curls. If only magic exists, I won’t have such a hard time curling my hair to my exact preference — loose, soft waves, neither stiff or dry.

Like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley after she was spotted leaving the gym one day.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley curls Girl-crushing right here.

Ugh. Why was I not born with these kind of locks? (Or body? Height? Looks? Modelesque physique?)

The problem is my hair is so fine and limp that whenever I curl them for some of the important events I attend, it falls back to its lifeless form after a few hours or so. It’s like the curls never happened at all. I was hoping the hair cream I bought from Snoe Beauty can remedy that.  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.
