Review: DermXpert L-Placenta & Gluta White Soaps

With a very unpredictable weather here in the Philippines, it’s hard to decide what we should use for our skin. As the weather changes, our skin care routine also adjusts. But there’s one thing that we, Filipinos doesn’t skip. Whitening & anti-aging. As much as we love our morena skin tone, we also want to have a healthy and glowing skin.  To be honest, I don’t really pay much attention to such, but I also don’t ignore the idea. That’s why I’m here to review these super affordable & effective soaps from DermXpert.

NOTE: I only had one L-Placenta Anti-Aging Soap and one Gluta White Lightening Soap. Meaning to say that I can’t show you the result on my skin since it is not that visible in the photos.

I’ll start with L-Placenta Anti-Aging Soap.

Just because you are still young doesn’t mean that you don’t have to use any anti-aging products yet. The truth is as early as 15 years old; you can actually use an anti-aging product because that’s when your skin is starting to age.

L-Placenta Anti-Aging Soap is a clear soap with a very mild scent. A 135g is actually small and it will only last at least one and a half weeks if used every day. On the third day of using this soap, I noticed how soft my skin is. I also noticed that my skin is getting tighter, but just a teeny tiny difference. I really wanted to share a photo of that result on me, but the difference is not that visible in the photo.

I am sure that with continued usage, I’ll be able to see a more obvious result. But as of now, I will leave you with that. And for P145, this is definitely worth the try.

They said to save the best for last, and that’s what I’m doing right now. Because in just a week and a half, I learned to love Gluta White Lightening Soap. P145

How would I not love a soap that makes me feel like I am bathing in milk? Really, whenever I shower with this soap, all I can smell is milk, milk, and milk. By the smell itself, you can already feel relaxed! Obviously, the main active ingredients of this soap are glutathione and milk protein – both are for whitening, and nourishing the skin.  What more can you ask for?!

I like it so much that I have to slice it into three cuts to make it last! LOL This soap is very moisturizing and leaves my skin really soft and smooth. As for the lightening part, I didn’t really notice much but my skin do feels and looks like healthy glowing. That’s a good thing, right?

It’s a good thing that I didn’t have any allergic reactions and whatsoever while using these soaps. Plus, they’re very affordable! DermXpert have other variants of this soap for different skin types too, so make sure to visit them!

Review: Krave Outrage Restorative Lipstick

My collection of lipsticks includes different shades of pink and red. What I have with me now is yet another pink lipstick. But this one is different because it is from Krave Cosmetics. We all know that the Krave’s products are all made out of natural ingredients – and so is this lipstick. Would you believe me that this lipstick amazed right after I wiped it off? Interesting, right? So why don’t you continue reading my review of Krave Outrage Restorative Lipstick in Lychee!

Krave Outrage Restorative Lipstick has Pomegranate seed extract that is rich in lipids, polyunsaturated fats, fatty acids, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, sugars, pectin, poly Phenosis, isoflavines and estrone. It was formulated with 95% less chemical and helps to repair and restore dry chapped lips. 

Honestly, I didn’t like this lipstick the first time I used it, but after I wiped and removed it on my lips. My skin is dry and so is my lips, it’s really a dry, chapped lips that I have to exfoliate it every other day.

Krave Outrage Restorative Lipstick glides on smoothly onto my lips. It has a smooth and soft texture and has moist finish. I also noticed that there’s a cooling sensation upon application of this lipstick, which is very refreshing especially in my dry chapped lips. This lipstick is very moisturizing too, that you don’t have to use a lip balm at all!

The pigmentation is not that good, but you can build up the color by applying at least two-to-three layers. Lychee is a very nice shade; it turns out a baby pink color on my lips.

I have a very short story to tell:
Once upon a time I was doing a product shoot for Krave Outrage Restorative Lipstick and tried it for the first time. After applying it to my lips for the swatches, I realized that it accentuates the chapped lines of my lips and it is so disgusting to use for the review. So I removed it. And then, I fall in-love.  The end.”

What's the reason you fall in-love with the lipstick? Because while wiping the lipstick off, the dry skin on my lips comes off too. 

It turns out that what Krave claims for this lipstick is actually true! This lipstick is indeed can help to restore and repair dry chapped lips. I’m sure that you’ll also love it; it doesn't just have a very pretty shade, but it can be your chapped lips rescue! 

What about you, have you fallen in-love with a lipstick too?

Available at Krave Mineral Cosmeceuticals in 6 different shades

August Most-used Makeups

August has been such a very busy month for me. Midterm exams and getting ready for final exam coming this next two weeks in fact made me lessen the use of my favorite makeups. I mean I don’t have the time to properly put my makeup on! But thanks to them (the makeups shown in the photo above and below), I still able to make myself look presentable even when I’m in a rush. They’ve been the best makeup buddy to me! Wanna know why? Continue reading then..

Maybelline BB White & Pixy UV Whitening Compact Powder is a perfect combination! These two are very natural and perfectly matches my skin tone. Not to mention that both of them have SPF to protect my skin from the sun. Though these two doesn’t really cover my flaws, I still love ‘em to bits! They give a natural smoothness and healthy, glowing effect on my face.

A’PIEU Hair Match Browcara is my brows go-to product. There’s always a time when I don’t have enough time to draw my brows (as if I’m good at it *eye roll*) and this one is my best choice to rescue my brows. Now I’m wondering why I haven’t used this one ever since I got it! Btw, thank you for this one, Rini! J

Sariayu Triple Eyeshadow Palette. So I don’t have the time to draw my ever-favorite winged eyeliner anymore, but this palette is just right to give life to my sleepy eyes; especially the dark brown shadow which I usually use as my eyeliner. Every. Day.

Sariayu Lipstick. You know I prefer a bold lipstick than nudes but after trying this one? I think I should reconsider buying a bunch of nude lippies from now on! I didn’t know what I was missing until this lipstick. Who would’ve thought that I will love nude lipsticks? J

And those are my most used makeups of August 2014. Now you know why I love them and why I abused them every freaking day! Because they’re just awesome! Share with me what are your favorite makeups too! ^^
