Guys! I finally got my glow back—and I think it’s even better than before!
I was soooo surprised when this organic night cream that I used actually delivered! I’m not wearing any makeup at all here!!
Organic?? Can you believe it?? I swore off organic products for my face years ago when switching to VCO caused a horrible cycle of cystic acne (I used it for a year to no avail). So when I decided to try this organic line, I was wary, scared, and doubtful. But guess what? It obviously worked, and now, I’m hooked!

I have a lot of products that I’m testing out this month…and it’s driving me crazy! Because I don’t know where to start, I thought I’d show you what’s on my lineup. This way, you can leave a comment and decide which ones you want me to review first. The (beauty) power is yours!
First up: L’Oréal La Palette Nude in Rose and Beige (P800 each) and Color Riche Lipsticks (P400 each).
I also have a moisturizer and eye cream from French brand, Nuxe.
My fave skincare brand! I also have to test the rest of the Perricone MD No Makeup Makeup line, but I already reviewed the foundation here and here.
When I noticed that my undereye area was becoming more dry, I knew I needed to bring out the big guns. The skin around our eyes is the thinnest and most delicate, which is recommend that women invest a little more when it comes to eye creams—it’s really the secret to looking young.
I’ve been using the Algenist Complete Renewal Balm, $65 at Sephora. Locally,it’s available at Rustan’s Department Stores (will update this post with the price once I find it).
What I like about this balm is that it suits all skin types and it targets all my concerns: fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness. Most eye creams I encounter only really focus on one concern, so I like that this is a beauty multi-tasker.
Here’s a peek at what it looks like inside. When you dip into the pot, it feels pretty dense and cushy—not light or watery.
I do wish that this came with a spatula, or better yet, was packaged in a pump to prolong its shelf life and prevent germs from contaminating the pot. I’m also not that big a fan of the scent (sometimes it smells kinda funky or sour after I pat it on and I can’t figure out why TBH). But despite these setbacks, I still use it! Why? Because it works!
More deets about ingredients that make this eye balm fantastic and swatches (you’ve got to see the sheen) after the jump! Continue reading →
During the last quarter of 2015, I had a lot of trouble sleeping. I was going to bed at like 2 a.m. and waking up at 8 a.m. Needless to say, it was horrible and my undereye area was definitely suffering.
And this was my savior!! The Laneige Time Freeze Eye Serum, P2,500.
Prior to using this, I was loyal to these two eye creams (see them here and here). Unfortunately, I noticed that the Estée Lauder one I was using had reached its peak and that it wasn’t doing anything for my skin anymore. So I made the switch!

No matter how tired I am, there are two things I do before bed: cleanse my face and put on my eye cream. I was in love with the Elizabeth Arden Prevage Eye Serum for years, but now, I have a new favorite.
Compared to the expensive eye creams in the market, this one is pretty affordable at $65. The great thing about it is that it delivers, too. I won’t think twice about buying this again when I run out. After using it before bed for about three weeks, I noticed that the lines around my peepers weren’t as deep in photos. It’s light, intensely hydrating, and is easily absorbed by my skin. It doesn’t do much for dark circles, but it does help (slightly) with puffiness. If crow’s feet is your main issue, then be diligent, sleep earlier, and use this. You won’t be disappointed! Do you use eye cream once or twice a day? The Estée website says you can use this in the a.m. also, so I’m wondering if I should! ♥ Beauty DirectoryEstée Lauder Available at Rustan’s Department Stores.
