New Skin Products: Glutaderm Set

Hello there!

I've been neglecting this blog. I'm a bad blogger. :( 

But, I got new skin products in my stash that I wish to share with you.

But before that, just a little disclaimer. I LOVE my morena skin. I am merely using this product because I got way too curious of it that I pushed the "BUY" button on Ebay rather too quickly and without giving it much careful thought. Rather than have a bad rating, I proceeded on buying it.

Here are my new skin care products:

It's a set of Glutaderm, which includes a bar of soap, a small jar of cream, and a 120ml bottle of lotion. 

I have only tried it for two days. No significant results is showing yet. But, man, this lotion thing is quite thick and filmy. It leaves a luminous trace on my skin. It's rather awkward I tell ya. Imagine a morena skin topped with a thin luminous film of cellophane, but really really thin. Did I make sense?

But anyway, the soap bar label stated that I should see "instant results in 5 days". Well it ain't instant if it took 5 days right? lol. I'll see you after three more days then? Hehe.

Haul: Skin Food Sample Packs and More!

Hi guys!

Last week I decided to try some sample sized products from Skin Food. I got them from Ebay and they're affordable, too. 

I have mentioned before that I am partial to Korean skin care products because I think they just use the most amazing natural ingredients there is on the planet! I am not even exaggerating. But the most amazing thing about Korean skin care prods, they work so damn well on my skin!

So here are my loot:

Skin Food Acorn Jelly Mask, Acai Berry Mask, and Ginseng Mask

Skin Food Black Sugar Mask Wash Off and Black Sesame Hot Mask 

Beauty Credit Green Tea Yellow Soil Foam Cleansing and Baviphat Cleansing

A-Defying Foam Cleansing Cream and Skin Food Lettuce and Cucumber Water Drop Essence

Tony Moly Cheek and Lip Tint

I have already used the Skin Food Ginseng Mask last night and it works well. I used it on my dad and my brothers. Haha. That's what happens when your sister's not around. :)

Basically, I'll try and see which of these products will work best on me then I'm going to get the full size. But I can already tell I'm loving the Lettuce and Cucumber Water Drop Essence from Skin Food. :)

My Wish List...

I am on a makeup ban for a while (I am saving for something more practical. clue: gadget) but I decided that I cannot really do without good skin care products. 

So while beauty loots are out of the equation for a while, here, on the other hand, are some of the skin care items I would love to have right after, or before- whatever is more convenient-  I have bought that much-needed gizmo. 

Clinique Eye Cream

There are a few Clinique eye creams and I am not quite sure which one to get yet. But definitely I want to try one from the line.

Clinique Moisturizing Lotion

I kinda sorta already know where to get this for an affordable price. I can't wait to get my hands on it actually.

Face Mask 

I'm not quite sure what brand to get yet. I'm still on the lookout for something really promising. But the priority on that "to find" list are Korean brands. Or Japanese. Whichever comes first.

Novuhair Products

This is actually for my dad. I saw it featured on TV and decided to get one for him. It is an all natural shampoo designed to encourage hair growth. It has good reviews ( or good marketing strategy really. shame on me) so I decided to try it. I have to buy this from Manila though. I wonder how I could do that... 

Marks and Spencer Bath and Body Products

I used to love these products from Marks and Spencer but I stopped when I had to go back home. There are no Marks and Spencer stores here I'm afraid. I especially loved their talcum powders! All the scents were just sublime. Oh, memories... Snapping back.

That's it. Hopefully I get to accomplish this wish list. But for the meantime, I can't wait to buy that freakin' gadget!

You Disappoint Me: The Body Shop Mango Body Butter

Do you enjoy using body butters? These products are so luxurious because they are so rich and creamy, not to mention they smell really good. 

However, one thing that I find disappointing about body butters are their greasy and sticky feel on the skin. Whenever I use one, I feel like dusts start to stick all over me. It is really uncomfortable and annoying. 

One body butter I have never tried to finish is The Body Shop Mango Body Butter.

I initially loved its ripe mango smell. I find it appealing and that mango is one of my favorite fruits. But this hype faded a few uses into it. The icky feel on the skin is simply bothering...

Therefore, I decided that no matter how I love mangoes, this body butter simply has to go. Ever Bilena's body butters were so much better but I think they discontinued it already.

Take note though that some body butters are not as thick as The Body Shop's therefore they might feel lighter on the skin.

Have a nice day everyone!
