Althea Box #18: Trouble Breaker Box

June 12, 2017
Confession: I don't enjoy reviewing or writing about anything breakout related. I guess it stems from the fact that almost 34, I can't get my head around the thought that I'm still nursing pimples every so often. Still, if I want to keep myself from going to my dermatologist for another acne surgery (!!!), I have to give my skin that extra cleansing and healing without compromising moisture and texture.

That said, you can tell that when Althea Korea announced a box curated to keep pimples at bay, I fumbled to throw it into my cart. It cost me Php 1440 and looking at the roster of products, I thought I got a bargain!

Cathy Doll's All Dolled Up Birthday Party

May 30, 2017

Can you believe it's only been a year since Cathy Doll said hello to the Philippine retail scene? Beauty bloggers fans (including myself!) flocked their birthday party in touches of boho chic. I love how this brand brings me and my best girls out, pulling us away from our extra busy schedules! <3

At the same party, they also launched their All Dolled Up Collection with 4 superstars to boot:

The Sculpting Highlight & Shading Cushion SPF 50 PA+++ comes in two oh so flattering shades -- Fair Skin and Honey Skin. I immediately tried it and found Fair Skin suitable for those with extra fair complexions. I'm a #23 in most Korean BB creams and cushions and the Honey Skin shade's down right perfect. Here are the two shades side by side:

Happy Skin EYE Woke Up Like This Collection (plus haul!)

May 15, 2017
Like you, I'd always love to have the perfect I-woke-up-like-this selfie. Smooth skin, bright can truly dream! Happy Skin being our skin-caring makeup fairy godmother wants us to get a step or two closer to that goal with their latest collection that makes us makeup mavens exclaim -- EYE want them all!
This May, Happy Skin—the country’s favorite homegrown brand of skin-caring makeup—is giving you the tools you need to achieve exactly that! It’s no secret that your eyes tell all. When they’re droopy and shadowy, you look tired; if they’re healthy and gleaming, you look happy. Even the area around your eyes is crucial—your brows, when groomed and filled-in, properly frame your face. And with a little color on them, your lids can make you look more striking. But the thing is, eye makeup isn’t the easiest to apply. That’s why Happy Skin is taking the guesswork out for you with hardworking, easy-to-use eye makeup products, from a mascara that does it all to a dual-purpose brow tool and a double-ended eyebrow pen.
