CosRx: Acne Pimple Master Patch

Sunday, May 6, 2018 Philippines


PRODUCT REVIEW: COSRX ACNE PIMPLE MASTER PATCH

Back in the days, I was not impressed with the power of pimple patches because I never seen them effective on my skin. I tried a couple of drug store brands but both failed to do its job on me. I never bought one again, I used spot gels or creams instead. After seeing great recommendations for the CosRx Acne Pimple Master Patch, I decided to give it a shot. One last time...

This CosRx is a brand from Korea and somehow I wished that it will work because Korea is known for creating outstanding skincare products. Without further chit-chat, let us now look more closely. 

Brand: CosRx

Type: Acne Pimple Master Patch

Product Description, How To Use, Ingredients: 


Pros: 

Since the patch is hydrocolloid in nature, it feels natural and barely visible. The texture is smooth and thin that I did not feel any weight or irritation that I am wearing something on my skin.

The patches are available in different sizes (small, medium, and large)! I can freely choose the size that applies to my acne. No need to waste a bunch of large patches for small ones like the other drug store brands that I was able to use in the past. 


I will now re-state my words that I AM NOW A BELIEVER FOR PIMPLE PATCHES! I tried it while I have a fresh pimple spot. I took a photo before I applied the patch. My before photo if you can see is red, irritated with a little swelling. A white pus also started to form inside the pimple. (Sorry for the gruesome details.) I immediately applied the patch in medium size. 


Leaving it on overnight, I am happy that it did not fell off during my sleep. The patch is attached to my skin with good intact. With the previous drug store brand patches that I used, I usually see it attached on my pillow or clothes upon waking up. 

With the CosRx in good attachment to my skin while I slept for about six to eight hours, I knew that my skin was exposed under the patch for at least in a prolonged time. Upon waking up, I noticed that there is a white discharge inside that patch. It was able to pop my pimple without any effort from me! I just used the patch alone overnight! 

The "after" photo was taken after I removed the patch and washed my face. If you can see from the photo, my pimple became small, no redness and swelling noted! The white pus was gone and it attached to the patch. 

I just found my holygrail in CosRx Acne Pimple Master Patches and I cannot wait to try their other variant that can be used under makeup, the CosRx Clear Fit Master Patch. I am so glad to give it a shot because it is so worth it! 

Cons: 

Available mostly online. 

I just noticed that if the pimple does not have a white pus yet, it is not that effective in making the pimple dry. I suggest that you use this if you have a fresh acne. 

Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 5/5

Price: 200php

Where to buy? CosRx Online Store, BeautyMNL

Thank you for visiting my blog and reading my review. I hope you find it helpful Beauties! Take care!

TRAVEL FRIENDLY COSMETICS BY CATHY DOLL

Summer is the busiest time of the year, this is the time that most travel adventures happen. Of course, each and everyone of us has to bring our essentials in our luggage. To tell you the truth, I am guilty when it comes to packing. I always wanted to bring almost my entire room with me. LOL. Kidding (or totally not kidding) aside, Cathy Doll saves the day as they now offer travel friendly products from their famous product collection! 

For example, one of my favorite product line from Cathy Doll is their Nude Me Liquid Matte Lipsticks, they now have it in mini version! Yay! The mini version that I got from Cathy Doll is the shade 7 or Moss Rose. The original size is in 4ml but for this mini version, the net weight is around 2ml. The mini version only costs 199php! 

Fan of cushions? Cathy Doll is also known for their remarkable cushions. I love their AA Cushion and Sculpting Cushion. I wish that it will also be available in minis soon! As of today though, the mini versions are only available for Oil Control Film Pact, Magic Gluta Pact and White CC Powder. Each of this only costs 129php! All these compact cases can fit in one hand! It is that small. :) 

I am a fan of face mask sheets and if you remember, I posted in my Instagram story before on how I hoarded Cathy Doll's face masks for Christmas Gifts last December. I love the idea that you can put in your personal message into the packaging. No need to wrap the gift! Plus, it is affordable for only 59php!!! :) The variants I received are the following:

2. Fighting - Black Magic Mask Sheet

Cute Press: Beauty & The Beast Brightening and Hydrating Rose Mist

Sunday, April 22, 2018 Philippines


PRODUCT REVIEW: CUTE PRESS' BEAUTY & THE BEAST BRIGHTENING AND HYDRATING ROSE MIST

Tale as old as time...true as it can be...anyway enough singing. I wonder if you can relate to me because whenever I see a red rose, Beauty and the Beast always comes inside my mind first. I love Disney movies and Princesses but my all time favorite is Belle. 

My friend Rochelle of www.rochellerivera.com knew about it and she gave me this Cute Press' Beauty and the Beast Brightening and Hydrating Rose Mist after she came back from Bangkok. 

At first, I thought it was the usual setting spray but after using it several times, I find it more helpful in terms of hydrating my skin instead of setting my makeup. 


Brand: Cute Press

Type: Beauty and the Beast Brightening and Hydrating Rose Mist

Weight: 50ml

Product Description: 


Ingredients: 




Pros: 

If you love using Evian, then you will also like to use this. The difference is that, this bottle smells strongly like a Rose. I enjoy spraying it on my face. I feel like a Princess whenever I spritz some. LOL. Laugh at me but it makes me feel good. LOL. 

Not only does it make me appear great, I also feel refreshed whenever I spray it. The moisture stayed on my face throughout the day. 

It seems that the Arbutin content is working because after a whole week of continued use, I noticed my skin to be brighter and have a slight glow. 

Cons: 

If you have an oily skin, you might want to think about it before using this. I have a dry to combination type of skin and I usually find my skin greasy by the end of the day whenever I use this (even with just one spray). In contrary to their statement that it will not disrupt your makeup, I beg to differ. My makeup did not last long. I advice that if you wanted to use this with makeup, use it before you apply your makeup instead of over it. It lasts longer that way but still not as long as when I skip using this. 

Not yet readily available in Philippines. I hope soon! Thank you Rochelle for this bottle!

Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 4/5 (I would give it a 5 if I it made my makeup last long.)

Price: I looked around online and it is about $18. I am not sure how much it would cost if bought directly from Thailand. 

Where to buy? Thailand. Cute Press has an online shopping site but it is written in their writing. I am not sure if they ship directly into Philippines. 

Thank you so much for visiting my site Beauties! For more reviews to come. I am thinking if I should transfer my blogsite into self-hosting, what do you Beauties think? :)

Skincare Resolution For Perfect Skin This 2018

Thursday, April 12, 2018 Philippines


THE NEW SKINCARE RESOLUTION FOR PERFECT SKIN THIS 2018!

We are only at the first quarter of the year ladies and gentlemen, it is not yet too late to go for the perfect skin this 2018! There is no doubt that for each and everyone of us, we all wanted that perfect flawless skin - it is the ultimate skincare achievement. However, there are times where we take our skin for granted, I admit that I am guilty of that. As much as I post that I do the usual skincare routine, when I am too tired (dead tired) from work, I skip it and sleep instead. This new year, let us take it up a notch to include taking proper care of our skin with just the right products! As we all know, healthier and youthful glow is all about indulging our skin during downtime and making sure that we invest in a proper and effective skincare regimen. Agree?

L'Oreal Paris, the world's leading skin care brand, is here to help us achieve our best skin yet with this new year with its highly-raved lines: Pure Clay Mask and Revitalift Laser X3. 

Pure Clay Mask is a potent in-jar mask formulation that helps address different skin problems. It comes in four variants, each made with natural pure clay with botanical extracts allowing you to #ClayYourWay to a more revitalized and nourished skin. 

The four variants includes the following: Illuminating, Hydration, Detoxify, and Anti-Pores. The Illuminating Mask is made with British Kaolin Clay and lemongrass extract that helps to gently cleanse the face and make it soft, radiant, and instantly renewed. 

The Anti-Pores Mask made with Morrocan Lava Clay and infused with rosemary extract makes the skin softer and eliminates dead cells. Made with mineral-rich Bentonite clay and Lemon Balm essential oil. 

The Hydration Mask (the only mask I haven't tried yet) is perfect for removing dirt and providing moisture to the skin. 

Last, formulated with Kaolin, Montmorillonite, Moroccan Lava Clays and enhanced with Charcoal, the Detoxify Mask draws out build-up of impurities and dirt, reduces dull skin, increases luminosity, evens out skin tone and refreshes and allows skin to breathe. 

All of these variants can be mixed and matched together to address multiple skincare problems and achieve a radiant skin in just 10 minutes! The L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask is available in Lazada at 399php each or at Watsons store for only 449php each. 

But achieving that perfect skin is not complete without a proper and effective skincare regimen. Get that youthful glow this 2018 with the number one anti-aging line from L'Oreal Paris, Revitalift Laser X3

L'Oreal Paris' Revitalift Laser X3 has triple anti-aging benefits that help refine pores, tighten skin and reduce dark spots. Infused with 3% Pro-Xylane, LHA, and Adenosine, it also replumps skin and corrects lines and with proper daily use, women get to prevent further signs of aging and thus, maintain youthful skin. 

This is the best time to invest in a trusted anti-aging skincare with the Revitalift Laser X3 line: Day Cream (1,499php), Night Cream Mask (1,499php), Eye Cream (995php), Total Care (1,499php), Serum (1,499php) and the Power Water (499php).
