HIMALAYA HERBALS CLEAR COMPLEXION WHITENING DAY CREAM

Few weeks ago, I decided to change my skincare routine to test out the Himalaya Herbals products that were sent to me. 

Frankly, I am not adventurous when it comes to skincare products. I try to stick to my rituals. My skin has been breaking out so badly recently and as much as possible, I only use products that are hypoallergenic. 

When I received these products, I did a little research about the company, and some details of the products that were sent to me. I found out that their products are 100% herbal actives and they do have their own research and development team to ensure that they only deliver good quality products. In spite of that, all their products are affordable. Nothing is more than Php 200, even the creams! 


HIMALAYA HERBALS CLEAR COMPLEXION WHITENING DAY CREAM

This day cream is housed in a heavy jar.
The consistency is very rich and creamy. The thickness of this cream is comparable to that of a sunblock cream. 
I was skeptical at first whether it will work on me. I normally hate thick-cream because it tends to be very greasy and heavy on my face. 
BUT THIS! THIS IS AMAZING! The cream feels light on skin, and it’s non-greasy! It is easily absorbed by my skin. 
I like putting this underneath my makeup. It dries out really fast, that’s why I prefer using this when I’m in hurry.
This cream is enriched with extracts of Licorice and White Dammar to provide triple whitening action. Regulates melanin synthesis to give a fairer, brighter complexion. Helps clear dark spots and uneven pigmentation. Breakthrough herbal Cinnabloc provides UV protection and prevents skin darkening.
Apply it on skin and gently massaged on cleansed face and neck. Although, it’s a day cream, it’s alright to use this at night. It can be used on its own or under makeup. 

Overall, I really like it and recommend it.

AUTHENTIC RAY-BAN FOLDING WAYFARER AND MORE!

“Hey Eloisa, where’d you purchase your Rayban, is it authentic?”

I’ve been bombarded with personal messages on my personal and fan page accounts with questions like this when I posted a picture of the RayBan package I received last Monday (September 21).

I normally reply to messages as soon as I read them but I intentionally ignored all these messages. No, I’m not being “snob” or anything close to it. The reason why I didn’t reply to your messages is because I want to share about this online store on my blog! If you want to know where I got my Ray Ban, keep on reading! 


AUTHENTIC RAY-BAN FOLDING WAYFARER AND MORE!

Glassesonline.com.ph is an online store I recently discovered that offers wide range of sunglasses and eyewear from top fashion brands such as Ray Ban, Gucci, Christian Dior. They do offer private label products too at EXTRA low prices! 
When I first visited their online shop, I couldn’t believe it! Where in the Philippines can you purchase a Rayban under Php 5000? Well, now you can! Believe it or not, they have Ray Ban under Php 5000. 

Not only that, they are also offering “FREE DELIVERY” and “CASH-ON-DELIVERY” mode! Oh, forget that long lines in the Bank! Now, online shopping is made even more convenient!

I sounded like I’m their marketing-person LOL. But, I’m just really head-over-heels with this shop.

Aside from the hassle-free transaction, their service is highly commendable. The shipping takes about two weeks. But, there are “Fast Shipping” items which can be delivered within a week. They normally keep stock of trending items which are best selling items.

Anyway, during the day of delivery (since I availed Cash-on-hand mode), they texted me to inform that my package will be delivered. Great! I don't have to guess when. 

The doorbell rang, I knew it was them! I handed the payment to the delivery man and the package was immediately given to me. Easy-breezy. 

The package was delivered in a shoe-like box so your glasses are safe and secured during travels. 
Also, the Rayban is nicely packed with bubble wrap inside the box.
This is how my Rayban looks like! It is packaged in a branded retail box. 
I checked the retail box label.
Yes, I ordered two Rayban!
The Rayban wayfarer glasses come in a black case with logo and a dust cloth. 
These wayfarer glasses are soooo gorgeous and I only paid around Php 13k for two RayBan already!!!
NO extra charges like TAX! Free shipping and Cash-on-delivery!
I will do a separate post to give you further detail on the wayfarer and perhaps, a look wearing these glasses. So, stay tuned!  

What do you think of these Ray Ban? If you're interested to see what are the items available in their shop, don't forget to visit their WEBSITE!

BDJ UNBOXING: SEPTEMBER 2014 BOX

I received my box last September 21 and I’m so happy that it’s a hugggeee box! Just like July’s box, today’s subscription box size is twice larger and heavier than usual. 

Anyway, are you ready to unbox this BDJ box with me?


BDJ UNBOXING: SEPTEMBER 2014 BOX

The theme for the month of September is “Beauty Innovations.” This month, the box is filled with products from established and trusted brands that we’ve known almost all our lives. 
I used to love these brands back then, but when I began blogging, I became more adventurous in trying out different brands. I’m really glad I subscribed to BDJ box and excited to try out new innovations from the brands I used to love. September box is truly a flashback box for me. Can’t wait to try these out!

CREAMSILK DAILY TREATMENT CONDITIONER
Full size: 180 ml, PhP 134
Inside the box: 2 – 180 ml, Php 268
I’ll start with the heaviest item in the package; I received 2- 180ml of Cream Silk Daily Treatment Conditioners. I received the Standout Straight and Hairfall defense! I used this conditioner for almost 3/4 of my life, believe it or not. So, I know it’s a good product to try.  

FANNY SERRANO GEL LINER
Php 299
Gel liner is my fave kind of eyeliner ever. It’s easy and perfect for starters. BDJ team amazingly made the right choice to pick Brown shade as I still have two black gel liners at home (one from Elf and the other is from FS, too!). You guys are awesome!

BEACH HUT CLEAR SPRAY
Full size: Php 180 ml, Php 390
Inside the box: Php 390
If you have been following me on my page, you’ll know how much I love Spray sunblock. I love them to bits, and I will never get tired of using it. Compared to typical lotion sunblock, this is much easier to use and really convenient! Not to mention, it feels better on skin. I will definitely, definitely use this product. I really like spray sunblock under my makeup ‘cause it doesn’t feel sticky or heavy. The best part, Beach Hut clear spray will not only protect you from harmful UVB, it also has UVA protection! 

DOVE INTENSE REPAIR DAILY HAIR VITAMINS
6-ml x 6 capsules, Php 75
Inside the box: 2 – 6 capsules, Php 150
I’m inlove with Dove Hair products! I really do! It’s currently my Holy Grail brand for my hair. I’m excited to try out these Hair vitamins! 

POND’S DEWY ROSE GEL
Full size: 10g, Php 150
Inside the box: 2- 10 g, Php 300
Pond’s is one of my fave brands for skincare. Moisturizer is a definitely must-have for every woman. Girls, I tell you, never skip moisturizer especially if you wear foundation for everyday. I heard some formulation of foundation can make skin so dry. Plus, if you have well-moisturized face ladies, foundation will look better on you! So, never skin moisturizer, ever! 
Soooo creamyyy! Can’t wait to use youuuu!

GODIVA CLEANSING KIT

GODIVA LICOWHITE WHITENING TONER
Full Size: 60 ml, Php 60ml
Inside the box: 60ml, Php 60

GODIVA LICOWHITE WHITENING FACIAL WASH
Full size: 50 ml, Php 85
Inside the box: 4- 6ml, Php 40
I have tried Godiva lip balm and soap back in my highschool years(or maybe, elementary? Can’t remember. LOL). My sister is a huge Godiva girl back then. Though, I still have tons of Facial washes and toners, I will definitely test these out one of these days. 

JERGENS MOISTURE PACK

JERGEN’S ULTRA HEALING LOTION
Full size: 100 ml, Php 88
Inside the box: 100 ml, Php 88
This is their newly relaunched body lotion that’s formulated with Hydralucence Blend that go deep beneath skin’s surface to heal dryness at source. If your skin is extremely dry, ladies, you might want to check this out

JERGEN’S DAILY MOISTURE
Full size: 200ml, Php 153
Inside the box: 200 ml, Php 153

This one, I believe, I have already tried. And in all honesty, I really like Jergen’s products. They’re quite affordable, and really moisturizing on skin. 

FS SINGLE EYESHADOW
Php 150
The packaging is soooo high-end looking. I really like FS packaging, very sleek-looking. 
I received an eyeshadow in a yellow/gold shade, which I don’t think I will use that much. ^_^ I wish I had it in brown shade or white, or anything that’s more wearable. Anyways, I might give this away nalang!

PAC FREE MAKE OVER
Php 1500



• OVERALL •


Surprisingly, I’m more excited to try out the skincare and hair products inside the box than the makeup I received. I will definitely, definitely use most of the items in the box. 

Overall, I'm extremely happy with my subscription box for the month of SeptemberI received 10 items + 1 voucher for this month. Only 1 item (Godiva Whitening Facial wash) is in sample size. 

The total amount of the box is Php 3398 and I only paid Php 580 for all of these!!!! Really worth it!

Maybelline New York: Perfect Airbrush Challenge

Yesterday, I received a makeup challenge to achieve an airbrushed look using Maybelline New York’s best selling foundation Dream Liquid Mousse! 

Maybelline is one of the most trusted drugstore brands in the market today. If you haven’t heard about them, you’re probably not from planet Earth. Maybelline is a popular brand for two reasons: affordability and quality

If you want to know more about my challenge, keep reading!


MAYBELLINE NEW YORK: PERFECT AIRBRUSH FINISH CHALLENGE!

STEP 1
As always, start with a clean face. 
Washing your face first will remove dirt and excess oil on your face. As they say, “Start with a clean canvass”

STEP 2
Moisturize skin!
Whether you have normal, dry, oily or combination skin, it is extremely important to use a moisturizer on your face. Moisturizer hydrates skin for a healthy looking skin. 

STEP 3
Let your moisturizer sink in your skin. 
Applying foundation immediately on top of your moisturizer can make your foundation look blotchy. Who wants that?

STEP 4
Apply Maybelline Liquid Mousse foundation for that flawless, poreless, natural-looking skin
To guarantee an airbrushed look, apply the foundation in stippling motion (dotting) using a Duo Fiber Stippling brush. 
In this manner, you’re creating small dots of foundation on your skin, making it poreless and flawless.
Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse is really one of the quickest and easiest solutions to a perfect airbrush makeup finish! This foundation evens out my skintone and looks soooo good on photos!
What makes it even wonderful is that this foundation is very light-weight. It feels nothing on skin! It has an airy texture, lightweight feels, poreless finish, flawless coverage, it’s far more convenient to use than airbrush foundation and most importantly, it’s affordable! 
The Dream Liquid foundation Mousse sells for only Php 599 and with a minimum purchase of Php 799 inclusive of Dream Liquid Mousse, you can get a FREE Duo Fibre Brush. 

*I will do a separate post for the detailed review of this product*
Now you can have an airbrushed look everyday with Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation. 

BEFORE AND AFTER
How about you girls? Are you ready to take the challenge? #airbrushedlookeveryday

xoxo
