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).

L'Oreal: Revitalift Laser X3 Day Cream

Tuesday, April 10, 2018 Philippines


PRODUCT REVIEW: L'OREAL'S REVITALIFT LASER X3 DAY CREAM

Day Creams are usually neglected to be used in the Philippines because of our weather. I skip using them because I feel greasy and hot. Like my face has doubled its layers. But with product made by L'Oreal, I want to try it specially as I loved their Revitalift Laser X3 Eye Cream, Power Water, and Night Cream

The ingredients included in this day cream were same with the Night Cream, the difference is that it has a lighter consistency and thinner in texture. 

Let us now check it out! 


Brand: L'Oreal

Line: Revitalift Laser X3 

Type: Day Cream

Weight: 50ml

Product Description: 


Ingredients: 


Pros: 

The ingredient Pro-Xylane (same with the night cream) retains the moisture of your skin that prevents aging lines. It also has LHA that mildly exfoliates the skin that can smooths the texture of our skin and eventually minimize the pores. With this ingredient, we can also use this like a primer in our makeup routine specially if you have a dry skin. 

The cream has a thinner texture and consistency that feels lighter for my skin compared with the night cream. The feeling after application is not greasy and it reminded me of how primers feels like but this is a little heavier compared to primers. 

Using my Mili Moisture Detector, I tested my skin before I used the L'Oreal Revitalift Laser X3 Day Cream and the result is 37.1% and it is considered average. After the day cream was fully absorbed, the moisture level of my skin increased to 38.8%. The level of moisture increased by 1.7%. It is lesser compared to the night cream but still quite high. 

In my opinion, since it does not have an SPF included, I can use it as a night cream as well. Specially for combination to oily type of skin because it has a nicer texture with lesser greasy feel. 

Cons: 

No SPF for sun protection. 

By the end of the day, my skin feels a little oily even with makeup on but it is not that bothering. I was able to quickly fix it with powder. At least I know that the moisturizer does it job. LOL. 



HOW IT LOOKS LIKE: 


Buy Again? 95%

Overall Rating: 5/5

Price: 1499php

Where to buy? Lazada, BeautyMNL, L'Oreal stalls in Department Stores, Watsons. 

Yay! Now it is complete! All the products under L'Oreal Revitalift Laser X3 reviews are now available on my blog and I hope you will find it helpful Beauties! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and have a great day everyone!

L'Oreal: Revitalift Laser X3 Night Cream

Sunday, April 8, 2018 Philippines


PRODUCT REVIEW: L'OREAL REVITALIFT LASER X3 NIGHT CREAM

In my skincare routine, most of the times, I am already asleep during the mask time and I seldom forget to put my night cream or moisturizer. The best time to prevent aging is during our 30's and I am already 30 years old right now so I better start to seriously take care of my skin. 

Thanks to L'Oreal for sending me their Revitalift Laser X3 Product Line and for today I will be reviewing the Night Cream. 


The Revitalift Laser X3 Night Cream Mask is known to its effect like you had a laser treatment done but instead of having it done outside your home, you get to do it conveniently by yourself through topical products. 

How it works? Let us find out by getting into finer details. 

Brand: L'Oreal

Line: Revitalift Laser X3

Type: Night Cream 

Weight: 50ml

Product Description: 


Ingredients: 


Pros: 

With the ingredient Pro-Xylane, it helps our skin keep the moisture that can improve its density to prevent lines. Laser treatments decreases age lines just like how this moisturizer works. 

At first, I expected the night cream mask to be greasy because the texture is thick. After a while upon application, it was fully absorbed by my skin without leaving any greasy feel. My skin instantly felt smoother and soft. 

I have a combination type of skin so usually the next day upon waking up, my skin is more greasy than usual if I used a serum and moisturizer than the night before. With this product used alone, I can see that it was effective in hydrating my skin as it also felt greasy upon waking up. Just like the effect when I use the combination of serum and a moisturizer.

If you really have a dry skin, I would suggest that you try this one as I find it very hydrating. I tested it with my Mili Moisture Detector, my skin's moisture level before application is 33.2% which is considered average. After the night cream was fully absorbed and felt dry on my skin, I tested it again and the level increased to 35.8% and that is at least 2.6% increase in my skin's moisture level. Yay!

With continued use in a month, I noticed that my skin is a little brighter and younger looking. For the lines, there is no visible difference yet for me. 

Cons: 

Slightly expensive for 1499php per tub. 



HOW IT LOOKS LIKE: 


Buy again? 90%

Overall Rating: 5/5

Price: 1499php 

Where to buy? Lazada, BeautyMNL, L'Oreal Stores in Department Stores, Watsons. 

The last Revitalift Laser X3 that I will be reviewing is the Day Cream so stay posted! Thank you for visiting my blog Beauties! 

Beauty For A Better Life Celebrated 1 Year Of Changing Lives

Friday, April 6, 2018 Philippines


EMPOWERING WOMEN TO TRANSFORM COMMUNITIES: L'OREAL PHILIPPINES' BEAUTY FOR A BETTER LIFE CELEBRATES ONE YEAR OF CHANGING LIVES

Last April 3, 2018, L'Oreal's Beauty For A Better Life has completed one full year of training for a total of three batches of beneficiaries. I met some of them November last year when they treated my hair from hair color. Time really flies and I just realized that L'Oreal has now completed three batches. Just wow! 

When I first learned about L'Oreal's Beauty For A Better Life Foundation, I also believed in it. As they place beauty at the heart of re-building identities and lives, they were able to create a long-term social impact to those (women or men) who are vulnerable both in social or economic situations. Since it was launched in the Philippines, 62 beneficiaries were given an opportunity to go into jobs and even own businesses in the field of hairdressing. 

Led by the L'Oreal Foundation, Beauty For A Better Life is deployed in 27 countries globally and their key programs to empower women in situations of social and economic instability by training them for careers in the beauty sector. For its first run, L'Oreal Philippines along with the partner organization, Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), all decided to focus on training women within one barangay to allow for growth within the community and co-empowerment among themselves. 

The program's first adopted community is Barangay Sto. Niño in Marikina as it is one of the priority areas for unemployment. 


As shared by Ms. Carmel Valencia, L'Oreal's Philippines Corporate Communication Manager, "We believe in the power of beauty to change lives, and Beauty For A Better Life expands the definition of beauty by using it as a way to provide skills and livelihood opportunities to those most in need. A renewed sense of self-confidence, dignity and motivation are fundamental changes that we see in our graduates and it is our hope and vision that Beauty For A Better Life empowers these women to gain a better quality of life through increased access to livelihood opportunities, and thereby becoming socially and economically empowered to also serve as beacons of hope for their own families and communities.".

Up to this day, 62 individuals were able to complete the program, 22 of which come from the third batch that recently graduated this April 2018. Each batch of beneficiaries underwent daily classroom sessions in Barangay Hall for three months wherein they were taught different hairdressing skills such as blowdrying, hair coloring, hair cutting, and application of hair treatments - under the tutelage of L'Oreal Philippines trainers.

The skills that they acquired were modeled during the graduation. Photos of before and after were also shown. I am happy to see how good their skills have become. All their exposure to one-week internship in L'Oreal's partner salons across Metro Manila definitely paid off. 

Chairman Rizaldy Josef of Brgy. Sto. Niño now turns over the program to Chairman Ariel Lazaro

As the last batch from Barangay Sto. Niño's graduations signals to a new chapter, the program was now turned over to a new Barangay in Marikina. Ms. Carmela Valencia concluded, "It is truly heartwarming to see the hope that the program has brought about to the lives of the women (and men) of Brgy. Sto. Niño. For the next cycle of Beauty For A Better Life, we are hoping that we will also open opportunities to individuals from Brgy. Dela Peña and continue our advocacy of changing lives through beauty.".

The graduates received a starter kit for home service business from L'Oreal. It was awarded together with their certificates during the graduation. Special awards were also given as well as to the top notchers of the batch. 

Ms. Ricalyn Bernadette Sioson received the Neatness Award. 
Ms. Remy Desonia received the Behavior Award. 
Ms. Jenny Lou Esmabe received the Initiative Award. 
Ms. Aimee Darlena Camacho as Top 5. 
Ms. Erlie Soliven as Top 4. 
Ms. Anna Lou Rejalde as Top 3.  
Ms. Kenche Lyn Arana as Top 2. 
Ms. Lovely Gladice Mae Guibao as the batch Valedictorian also gave her speech to inspire the upcoming batches and she also imparted on how much she appreciates the L'Oreal Beauty For A Better Life Foundation.

Starting April 4, 2018, the first batch of beneficiaries from Barangay Dela Peña began their training. During the turn over, the new batch also got their uniforms. 


I hope that this foundation will flourish more and venture out to more far places in the Philippines so that they will be able to help more people! I am grateful for this foundation, it is nice to see how it changed the lives of this women (and men) who now feel more empowered. 

L'Oreal: Revitalift Laser X3 Power Water

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 Philippines


PRODUCT REVIEW: L'OREAL'S REVITALIFT LASER X3 POWER WATER

With the summer's unforgiving hot weather, my skin already suffers from dryness. Just being under the sun in a prolonged period makes me feel dehydrated, what more for my skin! Plus, my skin is not getting any younger so I do not want to make it look any older by neglecting a good skin care routine. 

I just newly discovered this L'Oreal Revitalift Laser X3 Power Water when I got a package with the complete line of products from Revitalift Laser inside. (Thank you L'Oreal!) I first reviewed about the amazing Eye Cream with metal applicator. My next curiosity is to try this L'Oreal's Power Water. 

At first, I am really confused on how to use this because it is neither a toner nor a serum. Heck, I even do not know on where to insert it in my skin care routine. I kept thinking on WHEN should I apply it. LOL. I thought that this is like an essence wherein it will help my skin boost anything that I apply after it but after reading from the box, this can be applied before essence or moisturizer. It only means that it is not also an essence...LOL. 

To enlighten you better, I will be sharing some product description stated on its packaging. 

Brand: L'Oreal

Line: Revitalift Laser X3

Type: Power Water

Weight: 175ml

Product Description: 





Ingredients: 


Let us now find out how it worked for me by sharing my Pros and Cons. Okay?

Pros: 

Well, with my statement earlier, it is true that I do not know on what kind of product this Power Water belongs too, no need to think further because it just stands out! It is amazingly a miracle water! I will leave it as that. If it works, why make it difficult in looking for what family does it belongs too, right?

Anyway, let me make it clear again that this product is NOT a toner, essence nor serum. It is suggested to be used after cleansing and before application of essence, serum or moisturizer. For me, I use it after cleansing and toning my skin. After that, I usually apply my essence, serum, face mask then lastly my moisturizer or night cream. Finally, I was able to find where best to use it. 

I now prefer using it twice a day, in the morning, after cleansing, I use it to hydrate my skin. In the evening, I do the usual skincare routine. 

The first thing I loved about this product is the floral-like scent that deeply reminded me of Shiseido products. The scent is quite relaxing. 

I tried applying it without a cotton pad, I was able to spread the product well without using too much  product compared with the use of a pad. 

Immediately after I use it, I already felt that my skin feels smooth and soft. As the day goes by that I continue to use it, I noticed that my skin looks healthier than dull. I can even skip using the other products because this alone makes my skin feel VERY hydrated. 

In fact, I tested its power with the help of my Mili Moisture Detector. 

The hydration level of my skin before using this product is 38.5% which is considered average. After the L'Oreal Power Water was absorbed fully by my skin, I re-tested again and the moisture level increased to 39.3%, it increased by 0.8% which is not bad as it is just like water. Of course if I will compare it to serums and face masks, the increase in hydration level is not that significant. Still, it is not that bad at all. 

Most of all, I love that the water was quickly absorbed by my skin and there is no greasiness experienced at all! Even under my makeup!

The packaging alone is great that it looks like a luxurious high-end bottle but it only costs 499php! The bottle has wide hole because the water is thick like serums or a watery gel. 


Cons: None noted! However, I heard from my fellow blogger friends that this product is soooo good, it tends to be out of stock in some stores. Maybe, the only problem for me is that, should I hoard? LOL. 

HOW IT LOOKS LIKE: 


Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 5/5

Price: 499php

Where to buy? L'Oreal stores in department stores or Watsons. 

I only have two products left from the Revitalift Laser X3 to be reviewed. It is the day and night cream. So stay posted Beauties!
