Benefit & Solique Collaborates For The Best Pink Nail Polish

Friday, November 16, 2018 Philippines


One of the best collaborations ever made in the Philippines was Benefit partnering with one of our beloved local brand, Solique of Girlstuff. If you are not yet familiar with Solique, it is a variant under the local brand of nail polish Girlstuff that were developed and imported from France. The great thing about Girlstuff is that it is made with ingredients that are absolutely free from harmful chemicals such as Toulene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde resin and camphor. That is why using these nail polishes does not create any strong scent and it is gentle to our nails. Most importantly, since it is free from harmful chemicals, it does not create damage and yellowing of the nails. (Yellowing of the nails is one of the reasons I avoid using nail polish before. Thank God for Girlstuff in making this possible to avoid!)

I am sure most of you already know the brand Benefit - it is a high end cosmetic brand that originated from United States, the brand was famous for brow products and services. Besides their brow products, there are a lot of cosmetics and skin care items that are quite remarkable. Some of them are on my must-have list. (What is not to like with their cute packaging and high quality products?)

Imagine my excitement when both of my favorite brands made a collaboration for the perfect PINK nail polish for us Beauties! With Benefit inspired packaging and colors - I am so giddy with excitement to try it!

Watch the video coverage of the event at: 

This is just me enjoying the day! 

The collection is easy to collect as they released four shades only: Whimsy, Charmed, Dream, and Twinkle. All these polishes are gel polish without the need for use of UV light. Since it is a gel polish, my nails stays intact for at least a week. My usual problem is that there are spaces forming from the growing of my nails, amazingly though - my nail polish are still intact without any chip for at least a week before it starts to peel off at the edges. This is great because I am exposed to strong cleaning chemicals at the hospital and my nail polish can withstand it all. 

1. Whimsy is a pink shade with a touch of pearlescent. This is easy to wear that I even use it at work. 
2. Charmed is a light pink shade with a touch of pearlescent too. Even with its sheer shade, it looks so pretty on my nails. 
3. Dream is a whitish pink shade. This shade is perfect for this generation - Minimalist. 
4. Twinkle is a combination of pink polish with chunks of glitters. I remember my art stuff whenever I see this nail polish - it is so wonderfully colorful!

With these nail polish collection, you are set and ready for the Holidays! Get this Gorgeous Goodies collection by Benefit and Solique for only 1300php including a base coat and top coat! That is a good catch since you will be getting a total of 6 bottles. If you are in need of a restock, it is also available in two pieces per set with combination of one top coat and one shade of gel polish for only 450php. If you want to buy individually, you can get it for only 250php per bottle. 

All the shades were used on my nails. 

Not only that, Benefit also offers limited edition collections for gift-giving this Holiday season. It is a yearly tradition of Benefit to create a set containing deluxe samples that will make the buyer save money and save us from the stress of wrapping a gift.

You know what Beauties, I always thought that waxing hurts compared to threading but when I tried it for the first time at Benefit, I have been fooling myself all along! The pain of the eyebrow waxing was totally bearable and more comfortable than the threading! From now on, I will only have waxing done on my brows and of course - at Benefit! You can book your appointments for eyebrow waxing at

Maymay: Megan's Newest Endorser Shares Beauty Tips + List of Products

Saturday, November 10, 2018 Philippines


The other day, I just finished watching MayMay's movie at Cinema One then I got a surprise invite to attend MayMay Entrata's press conference with Megan. Yay! I could see her up close! 

Known as an actress, model, and singer - MayMay is now also known as the newest face of Megan. The brand Megan is a skincare brand that caters to Filipina's skin by keeping it clean. 

With MayMay onboard, the campaign started with her as a celebrity endorser and called the campaign #MegandaSiMayMay. She is the perfect representative for the brand all due to her witty nature, caring attitude, and a personality that radiates confidence. MayMay surely embodies the brand. Megan stands for strong, capable, practical and true to one's self-qualities and these are the qualities that both Megan and MayMay shares. 

Filipinas are known to be naturally beautiful and Megan believes that us Filipinos should embrace our natural nature and take care of it. This campaign, #MegandaSiMayMay will help us choose the best product for our facial skin care needs. 


During the press conference, Ms. MayMay shared some of her beauty tips in keeping herself naturally beautiful. First, she uses Megan's Peel Off Gel Mask to exfoliate her skin at least once to twice a week. MayMay also quoted that Megan could remove "tsismis" in our skin. 

Second, she suggested that if you want to fight aging, we should try the Gold Collagen Extract while the youth may use the Cucumber Extract. 

Last, to keep yourself happy and radiant, one must be positive and just be true to yourself. Go natural in and out. Watch the full video coverage of her press conference at: 


With that in mind, Megan also stays true to its mission of taking care of Filipinas' skin by stressing the importance of a clean skin that can easily be achieved with Megan's facial skin care products that leaves skin free of blackheads, whiteheads, and skin impurities also known as "tsismis" for MayMay. 

There are a variety of products by Megan and I am sure that you will find what is best for your skin. Megan's best selling product is the Megan Peel Off Mask which removes blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities. It comes in four variants: 

1. Megan Peel Off Clay Mask with Charcoal Extract to remove blackheads and whiteheads as it detoxifies and lightens skin
2. Megan Peel Off Gel Mask with Gold Collagen Extract that helps lift and rejuvenate the skin (Review posted here.)
3. Megan Peel Off Gel Mask with Cucumber Extract that gives a firmer, brighter and healthy-looking skin
4. Megan Peel Off Gel Mask with Papaya Extract that leaves the skin lighter after use and is recommended for gentle peeling

These Megan Peel Off Gel Mask is available in 10g sachet and 50g tube amounting to 25php and 99php respectively. In short, this product helps remove impurities to detoxify and lighten skin.  

There are also other facial products made by Megan. Like MayMay's favorite, Nose Pore Strips that can also remove her "tsismis" on her face specially on the nose part. The Nose Pore Strips are available in three variants namely: 
1. Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Strips enriched with Volcanic Ash Extract that removes dirt, blackheads and whiteheads - leaving the skin feeling fresh and free from impurities. 
2. Purifying Nose Pore Strips enriched with Witch Hazel Extract that takes away oil, dirt, and blackheads that clogged pores. It can remove impurities trapped inside the nose, leaving you with softer and smoother skin. 
3. Firming Nose Pore Strips enriched with Rose Extract that instantly takes away oil, dirt and blackheads that clog the pores leaving skin firm and soft. 

Each box contains four strips and costs 59php per box. 

Facial Wax Strips is also available. Per box, it contains four facial wax strips and one cleansing wipe for only 59php. The facial wax strip by Megan is easy to use and can be used more than once. It is enriched with Sugar Honey Extract to help moisturized the skin. It is effective to remove even short facial hair and underarm hair, making skin smooth and hair-free. 

One of the newest products released is the  Megan Facial Sheet Masks and it comes in two variants: 
1. Megan Facial Sheet Mask with Volcanic Ash Extract (23ml) which detoxifies the skin through exfoliation and cleansing leaving the skin smoother and glowing. 
2. Megan Facial Sheet Mask with Collagen Extract (23ml) which gives skin a radiant and younger look. It can maintain skin's elasticity and renewal of skin cells for a brighter, firmer and younger looking skin. 

Each mask sheet costs 49php and I hope they will offer more choices soon. 

Last, Megan also offers Hydro Cool Eye Gel Patch that helps rejuvenate and brighten skin under the eye area for a more energized look. It reduces eye puffiness and dark circles. One pair of these eye gel patch costs 25php. 

All Megan products are dermatologically tested so they are proven effective and safe to use.

Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway Review

Thursday, November 8, 2018 Philippines


The weather in the Philippines is hot and sunny even though it is not summer. That is why it is always handy to have a sunblock in your bag or stash. One of my usual problems though is that I hate using sunscreens that are thick and causes stickiness to my skin. I am always on the lookout for the best sunscreen I could use. My newest find is Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway, thanks for being an Althea Angel! 

The Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway is a sunscreen that gives moisture to the skin and yet controls sebum. It offers an SPF 50 Pa++++ protection and that coverage is already good! The formula is lightweight, creamy but non-thick and invisible that it does not create a whitish look on my face. The finish is semi-matte, which means it is not too moisturizing nor drying. 

The packaging is cute and minimalist. The bottle is light and the tip can control the dispensing of the sunscreen well. 

Let us now go into the details. 

Brand: Althea

Type: Petal Velvet Sunaway 

Weight: 55ml

Ingredients: (From Althea's website) 
Damask rose extract - Deeply hydrating and soothes irritations, leaving the skin feeling healthy 
Hyaluronic acid - A humectant that attracts moisture to the skin, preventing dehydration 
Geranium oil - Gives the skin a radiant boost and heals acne 

How To Use: Shake well. Just like any sunscreen, apply an even layer to your skin and allow it to be fully absorbed before going out into the sun. Re-apply as needed. 

Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Zinc Oxide, Disiloxane, Proanediol, Titanium (IV) Oxide, Methyl methacrylate crosspolymer, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Sage Oil, Pogostemon Cablin oil, Bergamot, Rosa Damascena Flower Extract, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Stearic Acid, Aluminum hydroxide, Vinyl Dimethicone, Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Sodium chloride, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Sorbitan caprylate, Glyceryl caprylate, Polyglyceryl-6 Polyricinoleate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Butylene Glycol, Ethyl Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol


Since it contains a Damask Rose Extract, it smells like Rose and I love it. Most sunscreens smells strongly of chemicals. 

Petal Velvet Sunaway is made up with natural ingredients without chemicals. 

The formula is light on my skin and I just used a moisturizer. The sunscreen did not cause any greasiness nor white cast. I felt comfortable wearing it even with the humid or sunny weather. It controls excessive sebum of the skin with its micro powder system while hyaluronic acid ensure the skin is kept hydrated all day!

With its light formula, I was able to apply my makeup over it without any problem. In fact, my foundation was easier to apply - it feels like I used a primer instead of a sunscreen. All the more reason to use this as a must for the base of my makeup application.

The sunscreen offers a high sun protection of SPF 50 PA++++. 

The bottle is lightweight and small that it is easy to bring it along with me. 

Cons: None noted.


Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 5/5

Price: 621php (They offer 10% discount during the launch until now, so if you want to try it now is the perfect time to buy!)

Where to buy?

Thank you for visiting my page and reading my review Beauties! 

Marian and Maine For Maxi-Peel Zero

Tuesday, November 6, 2018 Philippines


One of the most exciting night for me is to be able to witness personally Ms. Marian Rivera and Ms. Maine Mendoza in just one event! It is rare to see a popular celebrity in one major event, right? But I did during the press conference of Maxipeel in announcing their newest brand ambassador, Ms. Maine Mendoza, in addition to their long-time endorser Ms. Marian Rivera. 

Since Marian Rivera, the Primetime Queen, started in showbiz industry, she has been an icon of beauty and sophisticated grace. She has this radiant glow, along with her dedication to her family and many advocacy. Marian is well-known celebrity supporting charities. There is no wonder why she has earned her rightful pedestal as one of the country's top celebrities. Watch full video coverage of the event here: 

Marian Rivera's beauty is timeless. Classic. I even think of Audrey Hepburn whenever I see her because she is very feminine and definitely a woman that I could idolize. Her flawless skin has been taken care of by a brand she has stayed loyal to for over 10 years, and that is Maxi-Peel. Marian's supporters who have watched her grow in the industry love her candor and authenticity - so much so that they've also supported every brand she chose to work with, knowing that she'd only endorse products she has a genuine regard for. She has been a long-standing partner of Maxi-Peel, ensuring that every campaign they release is more successful than their last one. 

To make it more simple, Marian is an inspiration to everyone who knows her name, including the Phenomenal Star Ms. Maine Mendoza. 

For days, it has been hot news that Ms. Maine Mendoza has switched from her old cleanser and will be joining Marian in endorsing Maxi-Peel ZERO, an innovative new mirco-exfoliant that promises glowing and radiant skin. Her main reason for making the switch? It is none other than her Ate, Marian Rivera. 

Much like her Ate Marian, Maine's rise to stardom can be attributed to her candidness on and off the screen. In an industry that thrives on playing roles, Maine's fans remained loyal to her because of her youthful spark and bona fide authenticity to herself and to everyone else. Every product she ever endorsed was a successful sold out situation that drew snaking lines and top trending topics on launch day. (I believe that because I also bought her MAC Maine Lipstick!)

Maine Mendoza's natural self is her best feature. She has this effortless beauty that is desired by millions of loyal supporters. And it won't be long before those supporters make the switch to the latest addition to Maine's beauty arsenal and the secret to her glowing skin, Maxi-Peel ZERO

With both Marian Rivera and Maine Mendoza working together, it's safe to say that this might be the most powerful endorsement tandem we've seen in years. Their influence across all ages transcends beyond social media, print, and TV mediums. Maxi-Peel, with both Marian and Maine's loyal support, is truly a force to be reckoned with. 

The Science Behind Maxi-Peel ZERO

The road to clearer skin is a confusing jumble of cleansers, toners, moisturizers, serums, and so many more overwhelming terms. Are you oily, dry, sensitive, or all three? Why are you breaking out? In a country where humidity and pollution are your ultimate acne inducers, when do you draw the line between "I need this"and "No, my skin might not be able to handle that?"

The solution might be as simple as an innovative new frontrunner in the beauty and skincare industry - Maxi-Peel ZERO

Here's the tea: Maxi-Peel ZERO is the pioneering micro-exfoliant made up of skin renewal properties that remove dead skin cells and help prevent the development of pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. It contains salicylic acid which aids in penetrating the layers of the face, lifting away dirt, oil, act as exfoliation that gently lift away the outer layer of the skin cells, bringing new skin to the surface. And to top it all, these benefits are readily achieved, with zero peeling and zero redness! 

Maxi-Peel ZERO is also full of good skin vitamins such as Vitamin A to eliminate acne and improve aging skin, Vitamin C to protect skin cells from damage, vitamin E to moisturize, ease dryness, and strengthen skin UV defense, and Vitamin B3 to boost hydration and brighten the skin. 

Now you might be wondering, "Can't my regular cleanser do all that?" Most facial cleansers only have two main objectives: removing dirt and reducing acne-causing bacteria. But many, if not all, dermatologists would recommend to use an exfoliator. Why? Because removing dead skin cells is essential to revealing the fresh, new skin beneath. 

Here's where Maxi-Peel ZERO comes in handy. As a micro-exfoliant, Maxi-Peel ZERO is a potent yet gentle solution with quick effects. In fact, it's safe for daily use and effective in preventing your skin from breaking out while maintaining a radiant glow. 

Maxi-Peel ZERO is best for people constantly on the go. With pollution and everyday stress as their main foes, this product gives them the convenience of a simpler skin regimen with even better results than a regular facial cleanser. It also won't burn holes through their pockets with an SRP of 75php. 

It promises anti-acne benefits, smoothening, and skin lightening. Zero breakout, zero hassle!
