Daylong Sunscreen by Galderma: Daily. Deep. Complete.

I don't know where people got the idea that sunscreen is only a skin care product for summer-this is sheer heresy because the sun doesn't only come out during this season-even on a cloudy or rainy day, Mr. Sun is out and so are his buddies, UVB and UVA. Oh, before I forget, I should mention that there's a new, certified proven harmful ray in town called IR or Infrared Rays, or the rays that emanate from your computers, tablets, cellphones, and indoor lighting.

Everyone should be educated properly that sunscreen could be the only skin care product that will save our skin-it's time for everyone to adopt a healthy skin habit by using sunscreen everyday and brands should promote this too.

WEAR.SUNSCREEN.EVERYDAY. This is a newfound mission of Galderma, the makers of Cetaphil-they want to make wearing sunscreen 'in' all- year round with Daylong, a sunscreen range that's specifically formulated for everyday use.

Shu Uemura, Shiseido, and Fanny Serrano Eyelash Curler-these are some (if not the only) of the most notable lash curler brands locally, but here's a new contender: Heroine Make Eyelash Curler. The fact that it's from Japan, I had no doubt that it's good and truly, it is. :)

BELO ESSENTIALS ACNEPRO: The Most Affordable Anti- Acne Skin Care Range I Have Ever Tried

We all know that life can be a lil' stressful, and with stress comes breakouts-I've had my fair share of stressful moments and breakouts. However, not everyone has a budget for a weekly derma treatment so the next best thing would be a targeted skin care line that will address those pesky zits. Luckily for us, there are effective yet affordable options in the market today!

What I’m raving about lately is Belo Acne Pro by Belo Essentials-I’m on my second batch now and it still works for me! One special thing about this line is instead of using the classic acne- busting ingredients Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil, and Crownwood Fern, it contains Bee Venom.

A brief info about Bee Venom: Apparently, Bee Venom has been found to be a potent anti- aging (induces collagen production), anti- acne, and anti- inflammatory ingredient. Sourced from Honey Bees, the venom itself is poisonous, but the compound called Melittin found in it is the one that delivers all the positive effects aforementioned. Kate Middleton, Kylie Minogue, and Victoria Beckham are reportedly fans of Bee Venom- infused products.

Yllume: Brighten Skin Naturally, Effectively, and Safely

We have always been told to eat our tomatoes because it is very rich in Lycopene, which is very good for the health. Little did we know that beneath these red, juicy fruits lie Carotenoids, a mega supplement for the skin that can brighten and stall the signs of aging-that's what Yllume is all about!

Yllume, one of UK's leading premium dermaceutical range has just arrived in the Philippines!

Yllume is an overall brightening range for the skin--no, make that from face to foot because aside from the topical products, Yllume includes a Skin Supplement that brightens from within to give you the most even glow.

Her name is Momay Hossand, founder of Yllume. Momay's exceptional reaction to severe acne had led her to a life- long passion of researching for the best and cutting- edge skin care technologies in the realm of skin brightening and eventually, after decades of research with the top laboratories in Japan, UK, and Germany, she had founded Yllume.

What is Yllume made of? What can you expect from this range? Be one of the firsts to know after the jump!

Etude House Color Lips-Fit Review + Swatches

Here's a review on Etude House Color Lips Fit.

Price: P498.00
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Etude House stores


Don't get me wrong, I love lipstick to death, but sometimes, I hate them because they feel a little heavy on the lips, especially matte lipstick. I recently discovered Etude House's  Color Lips-Fit lipsticks that claim to be weightless and "fits your lips". A matte lipstick that feels as light as air? I would love to have that!


Color Lips-Fit features a revolutionary airy fit texture that saturates your lips with color, but sans the weight of traditional lipstick. The unique combination of light silicone oil and powder makes the color sink into the lips for an unbelievable weightless feel.

Unfortunately, the ingredients list is not printed on the box and the tubes. The good thing though is the transparent tube gives you an idea of what the color truly is and it's pretty accurate!
