My Reviews:
I’m working in an environment that requires staring at a computer almost 99% of the time. This is the reason why my eyes always turns red due to breakage of blood vessels. Sometimes I also experience itchiness and blurry vision due to fatigue. I’ve tried almost all eye drops available in the local drugstore such as Visine, etc. but none of them really works. I’ve tried googling stuff and later discovered that Rohto Z Eyedrops is an effective eyedrop that can relieve redness and at the same time refreshes your eyes. 

At first, I was quite hesitant to try it out because some users mentioned that your eyes would feel burn and stingy on the first 10seconds but later subsides into refreshing cool sensation.
Despite the scary reviews, I still decided to try it out. The moment I received my order it took me like 15minutes to inhale and exhale before actually placing a drop of Rohto eyedrop into my eyes.

I was expecting for the stingy/burning feel as users mentioned but fortunately I did NOT felt anything; NO sting, no burn, none at all! After like 10 seconds, I could feel the minty feeling on my eyes;very refreshing and cool!! and the redness in my eyes have been reduced. I super loviit!! 

See before and after pic: 

In the before pic you could see some red veins but after placing a drop of Rohto Z it did help tame down the redness and my eyes felt so refreshing!

I would totally rate this 10 out of 10 because Rohto Z eyedrops really relieves my fatigue eyes and eliminate the redness of my eyes instantly! And I DID NOT experience any sting, burn, or any discomfort at all. 

Hauls + Reviews: Tony Moly, Neutrogena, Revlon, CoverGirl and A BONNE’

Discovered that there’s another Korean Beauty shop namedTony Moly” opened in SM Manila. Since it’s new, so I just have to check what nice goodies I can get from this new Korean Beauty Shop “Tony Moly”.

Tony Moly pretty much carries similar goodies as to Etude House ; ranging from make-ups, skincare to even hair dyes! The only difference is that Etude’s packaging/brand image are mostly targeted to teens or young adults(designs with lots of floral, pastel and rainbow colors) While for TONY MOLY, the brand tends to capture in between the range because their packaging is somehow elegant/classic but of course with a twist of cuteness.

Even though they have lots of products but I didn’t find anything interesting. But since I’m running out of makeup remover and the SA is so insistent thus I splurge on the following products:

1)      TONY MOLY: Floria Milky Cleansing Cream
Price: PHP580 approx USD13      Size: 100g

What it Says on the Jar:
This milky cleanser removes makeup residue and impurities from the pores as the cream melts and turns to an oily texture when it is massaged into skin. In contains Calendula officinals flower extract, Viola tricolor extract and phunus serrulata flower to maintain the skin’s moisture balance and provide vitality to skin stresed by environment and frequent makeup use.

What I have to Say:
Basically it’s similar to  a Pond’s Cold cream, a cream based cleanser that targets to remove make-up and at the same time also provide instant cooling sensation upon usage.
It does remove my foundations but NOT the mascaras and I didn’t feel any cooling sensation but instead stingy with a mix of burning feel. What’s the use of a cleanser if it doesn’t remove makeup entirely, plus the stingy feeling is kinda distrubing as well.

Will I Recommend? NO.

2) TONY MOLY: Party Lover Nano BB Cream SPF50+ PA+++
Price: PHP1450 approx USD33      Size: 60ml

Mentioned in the Box:
---> Triple functional BB cream of whitening+ decreasing wrinkle + blocking ultra violet ray certified by Korea Food and Drug Association.
---> Will make your skin bright and shiny as gold
---> With the nano-gold ingredient contained to make the gold ingredients absorbed into your skin easily.

What I have to Say:
To start with I don’t even know why I bought this because I don’t use BB cream at all! I think the SA hypnotizes me or did something which made me bought this.

Anyway here is my review for this BB cream:
I DON’T LIKE IT! Why? Because it’s so thick&heavy plus it’s difficult to blend/spread through skin. Once you applied them on skin you will feel ‘something’ heavy is stuck on your face. I think my face is not breathable and it clogged my pores. Despite the thickness of the cream, the coverage is not good as it doesn’t cover acnes/scars well enough. The worst part of this BB cream is that it will definitely make your skin look white! Yes, White as GHOSTLY white. Creates SCARY white cast on photos with flash.

Will I Recommend? NO.

After roaming around the mall, I passed by Watson’s and was able to find something interesting from the REVLON’s and CoverGirl’s counter.

1)      Revlon: ColorStay Aqua “Mineral Makeup” in LIGHT shade
Price: PHP1350 approx USD31      Size: 9.9g

What Revlon Says:
--> Instant hydration with coconut water
--->Luminous look that lasts all day.
--->Shine-free formula made with water, not oil
--->SPF 13
-->Available in 8 shades

What I have to Say:
This is by far the BEST powder foundation I have ever tried! Trust me, this MINERAL powder gives me luminous, smooth and flawless looking skin and would lasts all day! (even though I have a terrible terrible skin with lots of scars etc) I super love the fact that this is non-irritating, fragrance free and able to provide enough hydration to skin because the formula is made with water. It also protects my skin from the sun as it has SPF13. Another wow factor that I'd like to mention is the feeling of "instant cool sensation" upon application!!!Makes your skin feel so refresh and light!

I think the only thing I would complain is that the brush provided is so small and short! making it so difficult to apply. I prefer using a bigger brush when applying so that  it would be easier to swirl and blend the entire face equally.

Would I Recommend or Buy again? YES!!!

2)      Revlon: Satin Eye Shadow in 01 Polished Bronze
Price: PHP350 approx USD8      Size: 2.4g

 Super LOVE the color, so shimmery bronze!

3)      CoveGirl: Pink Cheekblusher
Price: PHP300 approx USD6

LOVELY shimmery pinkish color!!!!

 I ran out of my staple Asian Secrets bodyscrubs and Watson’s are out of stock so I decided to get this instead:

1)      A BONNE’ Spa MILK Salt 2in1
What it Says on the Tube:
---> Moisturizing Bath Salt with whitening yogurt that will make skin soft and smooth.
---> Natural exfoliating and anti bacteria

What I have to Say:
This is a Spa Milk Salt Scrub so expect it to be rough and scrubby similar to a rock salt texture. But once you rinse it off, your skin becomes ULTRA SOFT and SMOOTH like Baby’s!!! Since I just started using this so I haven’t notice any whitening effect yet but who knows maybe if I finished the entire tube I would see some effects!

Would I Recommend or Buy again? YES!!!

2)      Neutrogena: Liquid pure mild facial cleanser
à a fragrance free mild cleanser that is suitable for all skin types

What I have to Say:
Nothing special, works pretty much just like any liquid cleanser. Able to cleanse off dirt and excess oil but does NOT dry my skin.

Would I Recommend or Buy again? No.

Review on KOSE: Junkisui Moisturizer

Price: PHP1.050   aprox. USD23

A lightweight moisturizer that feels fresh to the touch and provides optimal levels of hydration. It enhances skin’s barrier function by providing detoxifying benefits, while giving skin a radiant, clear complexion.

My Reviews:
The Likes:
1)      Super light weight but quickly absorb into skin
2)      No weird scent/smell
3)      Does not break me out
4)      Skin becomes soft after application
5)      Recommended for oily skin as this provides sufficient moisture but won’t experience oiliness on skin

The Dislikes:
1)      Quite expensive for just a moisturizer
2)      Available only in Kose counters

My Verdict:
Basically this is merely a moisturizer that provides enough moisture and hydration to skin. What I like about this moisturizer is that it is super light weight but you can feel the moisture absorb into skin.

 Let's all strive to have a clear blemish free complexion!

I paired this with Sekkisei White Liquid Wash and this is my Overall Experience for both products:

I’ve finished using both products and it lasted me around 3 weeks or so. So basically it’s a one month supply products. The reason why I wanted to share this overall experience is because my skin actually gets better by using above products. I’m pretty sure the credit belongs to Sekkisei White Liquid Wash and Junkisui Moisturizer because I didn’t use any facial products or change my lifestyle/eating habits during the period. So I guess these two combinations are the ones who helped me heal and improve my skin better. I didn’t experience any breakout or one single pimple during usage of these products. My skin gets softer and smoother day by day and my old acne scarS are slowly lightening so I would recommend this to people who are suffering from mild acne oily dehydrated skin.

Review on KOSE:Sekkisei White Liquid Wash

Price: PHP1,200   aprox. USD27
140ml/4.7 oz

A milky texture forms a rich, thick foam that envelops the skin and washes away dirt and impurities without stripping essential oils.

How to Use?
Apply 1-2 pumps into a wet palm, work into lather with lukewarm water. Wash gently over face and rinse well.

Herbal Extracts: Rubus Suavissimus Leaf Extract, Coix Seed Extract, Akebi Extract, Angelica Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract

My Reviews:
The Likes:
1) Skin felt calm and refresh after wash
2) Able to wash away dirts and excess oil but still skin remains moist (not drying)
3) Skin will feel clean and soft after rinse

The Dislikes:
1)      Quite expensive for just a facial cleanser
2)      Available only in Kose counters
3)      Has a weird awful smell (but tolerable)

My Verdict:
       Although I didn’t notice any whitening effect upon using this liquid wash but what I did experience is that my old acne scars are gradually lightening. Aside from washing away all those oils and dirt it still leaves my skin soft. I was quite surprise as I really didn’t expect it would lighten my scars but it DID!

My Reviews :
Note: I have a dehydrated sensitive acne prone skin

The Likes:
1)      Paraben and Benzoyl Peroxide Free
2)      Since it is  BP free thus you will NOT experience any redness/itchyness/tingly after application
3)      A thin application is enough and is quickly absorb by the skin
4)      Able to reduce and conceal a massive red acne/pimple after application
5)      It does heal a non-cystic acne fast (in my case, around 2-3days completely gone!)

The DisLikes:
1)      Pricey and difficult to find (only available in Dermalogica counters)
2)      Consistency is too runny
3)      The dropper/applicator might be a little tricky to use
4)      Once it dries up, it would turn into a crusty finish

My Verdict:
I love the color of this spot treatment as it can conceal and at the same time heals the affected areas.  The only cons is that once it dries up it would form into a crusty finish which is really NOT appealing. But as for the effecacy, it DOES heal non-cystic acne is just2-3days! But for cystic acne, it might take longer to completely heal. I have a cystic acne on my chin area and I have been applying it for almost a week already but it is still there. Though the redness has tame down but the acne is still there.

Review : Dermalogica Chroma White Brightening Regimen Pack

What is Chroma White Brightening Regimen Pack?
A complete daily regiment for reducing the appearance of hyper pigmentation and uneven skintone.

 What it’s used for:
This comprehensive kit includes everything you need to cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate and protect while reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation.

The Chroma White Brightening Regimen contains all 6 products for brighter more luminous skin.
Price for the entire kit: PHP6.595.00 approx USD153

The Kit Contains:
1) Tri Active Cleanser 150ml- A triple-active concentrated cleanser that improves surface clarity, lifts dulling skin cells and prepares skin for maximum penetration of our unique complex of enzymes, peptides and active brighteners.

My Reviews:
Smells terribly BAD!  But after rinsing the smell tends to go away so DO NOT worry that the smell might stuck on your face.  However, I don’t know why it’s called a “Tri-Active cleanser” because it DOES NOT cleanse at all! It was NOT able to remove dirt and residues on my face! Aside from being a useless cleanser I did NOT notice any improvement of clarity or such as mentioned in the product.

2)  Powerfoliant2 0.3oz - Remove dulling surface cells and help maximize the absorption of brightening treatments

My Reviews:
This Powerfoliant aka as Facial Scrub tends to sting a little while using. Does exfoliant skin pretty well but skin becomes dry after use. Did not notice any brightening result as mentioned in the product.

3) C12 Concentrate 30ml -
is a silky rich, high potency treatment that brightens, helps treat cellular discolouration and improves skin clarity. Velvety silicones absorb quickly to condition skin and help reinforce the barrier lipid layer.

My Reviews:
At first you might think the consistency is too creamy and will be sticky once applied. WRONG! Once applied it is quickly absorbed through skin and DOES NOT feels sticky or oily. Skin felt calm and hydrated upon use. Did NOT notice any brightening effect.

4) Extreme C 0.5g -
is a unique powder-to-emulsion treatment which delivers a high concentration of Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP) combined with brightening agents and exfoliants to optimise skin clarity.

My Reviews:
Mixed it with C12 Concentrate and applied to areas with uneven. Did not notice any brightening result as mentioned in the product.

5) Pure Light SPF30 50ml
- is a medium weight daytime moisturiser that conditions and brightens while chemical free sunscreens help defend against pigment inducing UV light. Peptides, Vitamin C and botanical extracts help treat and prevent cellular discolouration while Hyaluronic Acid hydrates, helping to minimise fine lines.

My Reviews:
A very light moisturizer with added high SPF30. Skin will feel smooth and moisturize. Recommend to use this if exposing to sun as it has high SPF to protect skin from the sun.

6) Pure Night 10ml-
is a nourishing and brightening overnight treatment designed to help minimise surface spots while conditioning and hydrating skin. Use nightly to help treat and prevent cellular discolouration, smooth fine lines and defend against  environmental damage and moisture loss.

My Reveiws:
Upon application skin will feel smooth and deeply moisturize. The consistency is just adequate definitely NOT thick or sticky but creamy and smooth. The most significant effect I notice on this product is that everytime I wake up I noticed my skin is WHITER(compare to neck).

Overall Reviews for the entire Range:
The reason why I purchased this range is because I wanted to lighten my acne scars or at least fade a little. The first thing I notice about this range is that it is quite drying! Yeah, its weird cuz’ I have an oily skin but it still dries out my skin! I would see flakes and (slight)peeling of skin upon application of these products. Thus, I decided to apply a hydration serum beneath just to balance it out. It didn’t cause me major breakout but did experience stingily and itchiness while using this kit. Overall, I would say that my skin becomes a tiny bit brighter! But did NOT reach the whiteness as the product promises.

Will I buy again? No
