DIY Hair Care At Home With HBC's Haircraft Products

DIY HAIR CARE AT HOME WITH HBC'S HAIRCRAFT PRODUCTS

The pandemic greatly affected our usual self-care routine. Most of us now have long overdue hair colors and hair treatments. It does not mean though that we have to further neglect it. 

HBC - the brand that caters all that a spa or a salon needs, they are the team behind one of our favorite drugstore brands for cosmetics, San San. Now HBC released their own hair care line, HAIRCRAFT

I am one of the chosen few who got lucky to be able to receive their DIY spa treatments that includes shampoo, conditioner, and hair spa or treatments. 

The first that I tested is the Frizz Control Shampoo with Argan Oil



The shampoo's refreshing fragrance is great. It is easy to lather on hair and does not leave any residue on my hair strands. Still, my hair is soft and smooth once dry. It kind of reminded me of how my hair feels after the hair shower at a salon specially when followed by a conditioner. Argan oil when used on hair has many benefits because it has an ability to restore the hair's softness, strength, and its shine. 

The shampoo bottle is available in 300ml and 1 liter ranging from 120php to 380php. 



The Sulfate Free Conditioner with Vitamins B and E is designed for chemically treated hair. This is to maintain the hair color and moisture after the chemicals that may have harmed your hair. Since my hair is not yet dyed for a long time now, I am reserving this bottle for future use. I tried smelling it though and used it once, it has a strong scent and managed to make my hair soft after use. 



The Frizz Control Conditioner makes my hair feel soft and smooth. I noticed that whenever I use this, my hair has less tangles and became more manageable. 

I prefer using products with Argan oil for my hair because it always gives wonders to hair recovery. With my hair always being colored, it tends to be dry and frizz, with this conditioner - it also improves its texture and shine. 


The Haircraft Coco Milk Hair Treatment is what I use now at least once a week for additional care to my hair. This can be used for normal to dry hair. After shampoo and rinsing your hair, you will use this to soak your hair for at least five to ten minutes. My hair strands are extra soft after use! Amazingly, it does not leave any residue too! 

For the other two hair treatments remaining in my stash like the Macadamia Oil and Argan are currently reserved when I have time to color my hair again. If the good for daily use gives a boost for my hair, what more are these specialized treatments, right? 

I really hope I have the budget and time to bleach and color my hair soon! I want that ash gray or the light brown shades that Koreans have in K-Drama shows. ;)



What are you eyeing to try from the Haircraft products? It is nice to try and affordable! If you stumble upon their brand on stores, make sure to check it out! :)

Foreo UFO: Detailed Review And Comparison To UFO Mini

FOREO UFO: DETAILED REVIEW AND COMPARISON TO UFO MINI

Who does not dream of having a clean, smooth, glowing, almost ethereal skin? Unfortunately, what we want and what real skin concerns we have happens to be on an entirely different level.  Bear in mind that with great skin, comes an equally systematic skincare regimen that is to be followed religiously. Consistency is definitely easier said than done.


I am a full-time nurse and currently handling a Covid Unit.


To say that frontliners are under stress is an understatement.  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are mandatory and the prolonged time of wearing the said PPEs are causing unavoidable side effects on our bodies.  The wearing of silicone respirator for hours is taking a toll on my skin. Appearance of breakouts started specially under the masked area. Redness, indentations, bruising and skin irritation occur on the pressure area of the respirator's edges. The stress of long duty hours, busy environment, dehydration, lack of sleep and the increasing number of patients, created more fine lines and wrinkles on my forehead too early for my age! I sometimes stare at myself in front of the mirror and I definitely do not look my age.  My undereyes and skin looks dull and totally dry. It is simply mortifying! 


I used to have a skincare regimen that help keep my skin on the healthier side.  However, since the ECQ started last March 15, 2020, where all our lives have changed one way or the other, I am ashamed to admit that I started to slowly neglect my skin.  For those times that I knew I needed to do my skincare routine, I chose to just sleep after a long and tiring day/night at work. For every month that passed, I am reducing the products I use more and more. Sometimes opting to just crawl back in bed and just sleep.  I knew I needed to change that and I needed to do it quick.


That is when Foreo came to the rescue!


What is Foreo? Foreo pronounced as FOR-RAY-OH is a Swedish high-end beauty tech company founded in 2013. I am already a user of Foreo UFO Mini and Luna Play Plus. I still have a few remaining treatment masks that I bought in Hong Kong last year and is planning to use it for special occasions in the future. 


Having a new UFO with the new advanced UFO Activated Masks, I can finally restart and reset my skincare routine. This is the best way to begin a road to recovery for my ailing skin.  I ignored my bone tired body and decided that I too need to take care of myself. 


I started using my UFO every night for two weeks in a row. 


HOW TO USE: 


1. The Foreo UFO (16,320php) is rechargeable via USB so make sure that it is in full capacity before using it. Once fully charged, it really lasts long. I used it every night for two weeks and the battery is still going strong. 

2. Download the Foreo Sweden App in your mobile device through Google Playstore or IOS. Make sure to register your device to make it officially yours after installing the app.

3. Wash your face and pat dry. Make sure that make up was removed prior to washing your face.

4. Scan the bar code found on your UFO Treatment Mask to start the process of the facial treatment.



5. Place the face mask sheet in the UFO device and lock it in with the attachment ring. 

6. Start by gently gliding the UFO in a circular motion on your face. The app will guide you on what to do, explains the treatment and it even has a background music to relax you as you use the device. 

7. After the 90 second treatment, you can repeat the process. In my case, there are still a lot of serum left in the mask sheet that I can use so I repeat the process for my neck area. Yes, not a drop wasted for this girl! 

8. Sanitize after use. The device is waterproof and easy to clean with mild soap and water. Foreo also offers a Silicone Spray for cleansing in case you want to try that too.



DETAILED REVIEW: 

UFO by Foreo is a complete smart mask treatment that uses Hyper-Infusion Technology combining heat, cool, and T-sonic pulsations while using it on your skin. This is perfect for a healthcare worker like me because for me, time is of the essence. My usual 20-30 minute skin regimen can be shortened into a 90 second one! Awesome, right? I am 100% recommending this for busy people who are always on the go like me! 

The UFO instantly applies the mask's essence and massages it on the skin's surface for better, longer-lasting results so even though the time was shortened, with the help of the device, it is still effective in delivering the same results as if you were wearing a sheet mask for 20 minutes. 

The Thermo-Therapy Mode helps our skin prepare and enhance the skin's absorption of UFO Power Activated Mask Ingredients. It helps in softening our skin. The heat prepares the skin for the treatment and the heat that emanates from the device will help open the pores, enabling the mask’s essence to penetrate the skin’s surface. 

The Cryo-Therapy helps by refreshing, lifting, firming, and shrinking the appearance of pores. This feature greatly helped me reduced my puffy eyes due to lack of sleep. This is my favorite part of the treatment. After the heating mode, it sure feels nice to be followed up by a cold treatment all from once device! When cold touches your skin, it closes pores, sealing in the serum that was applied by the UFO. This is the perfect way to end the skincare regimen. 

Another feature of the UFO is its T-Sonic Pulsations which stimulates the blood's microcirculation. It makes for better absorption of the products and facilitate skin renewal. This feels like a face massage or like a finger-tapping motion usually experienced when you undergo facial spas by aestheticians. 

UFO utilizes LED light therapy by using three different light colors specifically - red, green, and blue. Each light targets photofacials to rejuvenate the skin. The RED helps erase signs of aging and stimulates collagen production. The GREEN brightens dull complexion and evens skin tone for an instant boost of radiance. The BLUE targets acne-causing bacteria and stimulates blood circulation for a healthier complexion. 

In my experience using the various masks, I have observed the light change from red to green. I have not seen my UFO change to a blue light. It may be because the masks I have been using are not targeted for acne and similar skin conditions.  
There are several UFO Activated Masks offered by Foreo and the first ones that I was able to try during my UFO Mini days are the famous DAILY DUO: Call It A Night (640php) and Make My Day (640php). 

Make My Day UFO Activated Mask contains Hyaluronic acid and red algae which provides deep hydration combined with pollution protection for a more radiant skin. I use this in the morning before I go to work. Basically its main skin benefit is to hydrate. Whenever I use this, my skin looks energized and refreshed. The hydration is just enough for day use. It did not make my skin oily and is suitable for all skin types. 

Call It A Night UFO Activated Mask contains Ginseng and Olive Oil which nourish and replenish the skin overnight with its revitalizing formula. The first few nights that I used this, the liquid from the mask was absorbed quickly by my skin. My skin was so dry that it lavished on the moisturizing ability of the UFO and mask combined.


My current skin condition truly needs all the help it can get, it is definitely dull and dry so I chose to apply the Glow Addict (1240php) and Youth Junkie (1240php) from the advanced collection. 

The Glow Addict's main ingredient is the Pearl Extract designed for enhanced brightening of the skin by illuminating dull skin for a healthy and radiant glow. I observed that it was able to visibly brighten my skin. Dullness is gone! This mask can be used for all skin types. 

Youth Junkie's main ingredient is Collagen targeting intensive renewal by reducing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a younger looking skin. This is what my skin definitely needs. I noticed that among all of my UFO activated masks, this one is the most moisturizing. It also improves skin's elasticity and help restore the youthful plump. Days after I used this mask, I noticed that my skin is indeed plumper specially on the cheeks area. This is more suitable for dry and mature skin like mine. I do hope that with continued use, I will be able to decrease the fine lines and wrinkles or at least prevent more formation of these signs of aging.

The great thing about these FOREO masks is that, these are dermatologist tested and formulated with the highest quality plant and fruit extracts. No Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Silicones, Disodium EDTA, or Mineral Oil. 

These UFO Activated Masks were developed and sourced in Korea and made with ultra-soft microfiber and drenched in premium skincare formulas. Each type of masks has its own use depending on your skin needs. 

With this device, I was able to deliver the products evenly around my face and neck. There is no wastage of any essence from the mask sheet. The liquid was also absorbed rather quickly, so my skin feels hydrated after each use. 

Upon waking up, my skin feels softer, smoother and has always has this radiant and fresh look that definitely helps to improve my mood throughout the day knowing that I am seeing results. 

How often do I use the FOREO UFO? I now use this daily. Either at night or in the morning. Sometimes both when I know that my face will be exposed to pollution outside. 

Check my before and after photos of straight 1 week use:
My overall experience, I noticed that my skin is definitely smoother in texture, softer and plumper. Best of all, I love the radiant look that I get with its continued use. 

Other than the noticeable improvement on my skin after just a week of use, these are also my reasons for loving my UFO device: 

1. Saves time - Being a frontliner takes up a lot of my time so shortening my skincare routine down to 90 seconds is definitely a big help for me. I am now able to care for myself no matter how busy and tired I may be at the end of the day. 

2. Facial Spa At Home - With its pampering effect of warmth to cooling effect, music, and facial massage from the T-Sonic pulsations, I feel like I am undergoing a facial service every night! 

I know that this device is on the steep side since it is a high-end product but you actually save more because you can now skip regular visits to facial spa appointments. It is definitely a skin investment device! 

My most favorite feature of the FOREO UFO is its warming and cooling effect on the skin added with the T-sonic pulsations. In short, I love everything about it. As for the masks, of the four variants that I was able to test, my favorite is the Glow Addict! The total experience is definitely invigorating and the end result can be seen the following day.

COMPARISON TO UFO MINI:

The Foreo UFO and UFO Mini is almost the same in terms of the T-Sonic pulsations and the Thermo-Therapy. The major difference is the Cryo-Therapy which lacks in the UFO Mini. The size and roundness of both devices are almost the same, the UFO looks bigger but not that noticeable.


The major difference is the design on the front as seen on the photo below: 


On the back though, it is the same, as well as the size for the attachment ring. 


Adding to the major difference is the price. UFO is 16,320php while the UFO Mini is 11,000php. With the added Cryo-therapy for the UFO, I think it will be a better purchase even with the price difference. 

Do I think it is worth the price? Definitely. In fact, the price is the only CON that people can find deterring in owning one. For me, the PROS supersedes the CONS on this. I can’t see myself doing my skincare without my trusty Foreo UFO.

Improve Skin, Improve Life With Niks Skin

IMPROVE SKIN, IMPROVE LIFE WITH NIKS SKIN

The newest, fast-rising local skin care brand wants to empower Filipinos through confidently glowing skin and entrepreneurship. 

If you read most of my posts recently, it always included on how the pandemic affected me and this is one thing we totally did not expect to happen in the year 2020. When the new year came, I am full of hopes and dreams about what I wanted to achieve this year but all of that went down the drain. 

All of a sudden, we were all made to stay in our homes and life as we know it came to a halt. Even though I did not stopped from working, life still feels that it stopped. Like the movie from year 2006 by Adam Sandler, Remote, like someone just pressed a pause in our daily lives. I miss everything. I wish that we could all turn back to when everything is as carefree. 

For most peoples, this pause was taken as an opportunity of enrichment. To focus more on self-care. A chance to make up for those missed moments of pampering, of thoroughly looking at their skin and assessing properly its needs, and personal, spiritual, and mental learning. Some create opportunities by looking for more or new channels of incomes because if there is one thing this pandemic has taught everyone, it is the value of having a Plan B! 

Being a frontliner, I know that I should feel empowered but I have my own set of problems and insecurities. Others may have taken their time to pamper themselves with giving what their skin needs, and I am the opposite. Working full time in a busy hospital, made me neglect my skin. 

Recently though, I began to take extra rest when I felt burned out. I plan to focus on myself in order to give care to others too. I simply want to empower myself. 

The modern definition of beauty is to feel empowered from the inside and out. With Niks Skin embracing this message through beauty and entrepreneurship and they wanted to empower us by improving our skin and in turn our life!

Armed with her dreams and vision, Nicole set out to create Lily's Touch in 2013 - her first breakthrough brand in the local beauty-reselling industry. (Personally, I was able to try use the Mircale Cream religiously before and I find it effective in whitening my elbows!)

Well-loved by Filipinos, beauty influencers, and even celebrities, Lily's Touch, particularly the MIRACLE CREAM, became a huge hit and sold millions in the Philippines and around the world, and still remains well-loved by many. 

Lily’s Touch has gained recognition here and abroad, and its products and business model eventually became a benchmark for many local beauty brands that came after.

Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel: Dry Skin Remedy

Friday, July 31, 2020 Philippines


PRODUCT REVIEW: BIO-OIL'S DRY SKIN GEL

Ever since the Covid-19 reached our country, I had been more cautious and did hand washing more than the usual specially at work. 

Working in a hospital makes me use the strong and harsh disinfectants like the Lysodex or Sterilium. Even cleaning the desk's surface with Clinelle causes extreme dryness in my hands. 

Skin started to peel and sometimes when its already too deep - it hurts when I wet my skin with water or disinfectant. So, being safe means adding a counterpart problem of dry skin. 

Lotions or creams does not suffice anymore for my the light peeling of my hands maybe because most of these products are made with at least 70% water and it quickly evaporates when coming into contact with the skin so it is already no benefit if you have extreme dry skin like mine. 

Glad to discover this Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel! It is a gel that will replace water with oil, thereby creating a product that is 100% active!

Brand: Bio-Oil

Type: Gel

Weight: 100ml

Ingredients: 


How To Use: 


Pros: 

Based on the clinical trials made by Bio-Oil, the company is proud to share that it is suitable to be used even with sensitive skin. No subjects who used the products experienced any adverse reactions or skin irritations. In my experience, I did not experience any reactions too. 

Not only that, this product is also non-comedogenic, so it will not cause any additional problems to your skin specially if you want to use it on your face. 

Since it contains mostly of oil in form of gel instead of water, small amount of product will be enough to moisturize your skin. So this bottle will really last a long time! 

The gel helps our skin to be moisturized by making the oil help the skin to hold the moisture in. Because oil does not easily evaporate like water. Bio-Oil also contains 3% water just enough to contain Humecatant that binds the moisture to the outer layer of the skin. 

I tried it out on my dry hands first, see the before and after photo below. In my experience, I like to use it better as spot care instead of applying it to my whole hand because of the oily consistency that leaves residue. 

It was advised not to be used on broken skin so I just use it on the dry parts of my hand that has light skin peeling, thankfully during the time that I tested this, I do not have an open wound from dry skin yet. 

I did not experience any irritation or pain while using Bio-Oil. The gel was able to soothe the dry skin and after a few days of use, it became nourished and moisturized again. No dry skin to be seen, though I also tried helping myself by using Dermclens (milder form of hand disinfectant) disinfectant at work instead of Sterilium. Though I still use Lysodex most of the times as hand soap at work. I still prefer to hand wash than to sanitize with alcohol or disinfectants.   

I also used it on my feet's dry and hard calluses, it helped greatly in softening the skin that I know that if I will follow it up with brushing the calluses, these dry skin will fall off. 



Cons: 

The gel easily leaks out of the bottle, make sure to store your bottle well to avoid any spillage. But I plan to just transfer it to a glass jar if I will have the chance to buy one. 

HOW IT LOOKS LIKE: 


Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 4/5 (I wish that the packaging will be improved.)

Price: 495php

Where to buy? Online via BeautyMNL and Watsons

Revlon Colorstay Full Cover Foundation Review + Swatches

Sunday, July 19, 2020 Philippines



PRODUCT REVIEW: REVLON'S COLORSTAY FULL COVER FOUNDATION + SWATCHES

Revlon is one of the pioneer brands for cosmetics. Ever since they always up their game to what is new and needed in the present time. Nowadays, we appreciate using full cover foundation because of the high quality lens of the cameras that we use. Slight blemishes, uneven skin tone, and pores can easily be seen just by zooming photos! 

That is why, some are using full cover foundation for a more flawless look, camera ready any time! After receiving this whole set from Revlon last December, I used it and tested its capacity to cover my skin. 

There are several shades that I received but the one perfect for my skin tone is the shade 210. I am a MAC NC15-20 user for your reference. Continue reading for my full review. 

Brand: Revlon

Type: Colorstay Full Cover Foundation

Weight: 30ml

Ingredients: 


Pros: 

This is not a matte foundation but it looks matte when applied which I liked better because it does not feel dry on my skin and yet for a mousse foundation, it also does not add any oil on my skin. Though my skin is naturally dry to combination. I am not sure on how it would affect oily skin. Plus, it feels light on my skin like it can breathe! 

I did not encounter any problems in blending it well into my skin. The texture and consistency of the foundation is easy to work with. 

In coverage, I was amazed because my skin literally looked smoother. Gone are the pores and most of my blemishes. The dark circles under my eyes lightened and my skin tone looked even. I must say that the coverage is from medium to full. 

There are several shades offered by Revlon but for this review, I am sharing the commonly used  six shades. 

This high coverage foundation is affordable for only 825php!

Lasts up to five to six hours on me. Not bad if you will just go for a short time outside. However, if I will use it on my 12 hours shift at work, I would need a back up.  

The foundation was able to give my skin a boost in glow because the dullness lessened after it was applied. It gives a natural fresh vibe look that is why I enjoy using it. 

Hygiene wise, I love that they cover the tube with a seal so I know that it is really new whenever I will buy this product. Plus, having the squeeze tube will be easier to clean and touching the tip of the tube will be avoided. I can also control the right amount of the product that I need. 


Cons: 

I did not experience any that will not make me use this again. I just wish that it can last longer. 

SWATCHES: 




Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 4/5

Price: 825php

Where to buy? Revlon stores in department stores and Watsons, online through Lazada and Shopee - make sure that it is the official stores. 

Review: UFO Mini By Foreo

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 Philippines


PRODUCT REVIEW: FOREO'S UFO MINI

I cannot remember the exact time when I first purchased my first Foreo device and this is my first Foreo. I think it was late 2018 or early 2019. I had put off reviewing this because I love it so much that I do not know on how to start writing my thoughts about it. 

I was able to include this device on my post about Beauty Gadgets last May 2019. It makes me laugh now that I even reviewed the Foreo Luna Play Plus first before this UFO Mini. What I want to imply is that I had always been a fan of Foreo ever since I started using it. 

The convenience and ease that I can do a facial-like skincare at home is an amazing discovery. Without any more unnecessary comments, I will go straight to my review. 

Brand: Foreo

Type: UFO Mini

Color: Fuchsia


Pros: 

Basically, the UFO Mini device is a 90 seconds mask treatment that combines device-activated formulas with heating and T-Sonic pulsations. 

The package comes with stand, one free treatment mask, and USB wire for charging. 

You can purchase masks that can fit the device from Foreo or Sephora PH. I hoarded these masks  (Make My Day and Call It A Night) from my last travel in Hong Kong (January 2019) because it was on sale at that time. I was able to purchase it cheaper than the price at Sephora. 

Anyone can use this device, whether you have a normal, dry, combination or even oily skin. According to Foreo, it addresses skincare concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, pores, dullness, and even uneven texture. 

With the continuous pulsations, I am sure that it was able to massage my skin like on how it can be given love from facial services. 

My skin became more supple when I use this regularly. My complexion looked fresher and brighter and my skin is hydrated. 

The usual 10 to 15 minutes face mask regimen will be shortened to 90 seconds! This is a great help to a busy person like me! Foreo is a good skin care investment for me!

The device is rechargeable and water proof. I can clean it with mild soap and water but Foreo also sells silicon spray cleanser. 

The warmth and the pulsations that the device gives is really relaxing. I love using this before sleep. I consider it my treat after a long day at work. 

Cons: 

Masks needed to be from Foreo but if you are innovative, you could try cutting up your regular face masks to fit into the device. Just save your old masks packaging to scan the code with. 

Compared with the UFO, this one does not have a cool setting or the green led light setting. 

You need the app of Foreo (Downloadable in Google Playstore and IOS) to make the device work. :)

Well, the product is expensive but like I said, consider it as an investment for your skin. 

Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 5/5

Price: 11,000php

Where to buy? Foreo, Sephora PH

It was my plan to try and collect all the Foreo devices out there because I simply love the benefits it gives to my skin! Stay posted for more posts about Foreo!
