Product Review: Nature Republic 92% Aloe Vera Soothing Gel

 A few weeks ago, I've scoured the mall for a new brow product as my eyebrow pencil is down to its last few uses. But of course, I ended up buying a bunch of stuff and NONE of those were brow product. Still, I'm very happy with my purchases especially this Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel from Nature Republic. I may be extremely unobservant but it is only now that I've heard of aloe vera soothing gel and I noticed that most of Korean Skin Care shops have one (and we've gone through all the Korean Skin Care shops at MOA). Nature Republic's soothing gel was the cheapest one though (PhP. 245) and so I decided to give it a try.

Top 5 Tuesday: Summer Essentials

Summer is HERE! 

Okay, it's been a few weeks since summer officially started and we can really feel the heat. This may be an unpopular opinion but summer's not my favorite time of the year and I think anyone who lives in a tropical country is of the same opinion. But still, it's the best time to go to the beach and unwind and look at the brighter side of things. 

So today I'll be sharing a few tips on how to stay cool (in the literal sense) and still enjoy summer without hurting your wallet (each product is less than PhP. 500).

Product Review: Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation, Primer and Pressed Powder

Coverage is a big deal for me and if you're a makeup enthusiast like me, you'd know how important coverage is. That's why standards are set high for products that are dedicated to this - from foundations to BB creams to CC creams to tinted moisturizers, you name it;  there's much research to perfect this make up "base". As a girl with oily skin this comes extra hard for me for I not only need to cover up, I also need to keep shine away from my face. That's why I thank the heavens for these lovely products.

Manicure Monday

Happy Monday everyone! I know, I know, happy and Monday don't usually go together but let me tell you a secret to make Mondays more bearable, HAVE SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO.
For me, I usually have my nails done on Mondays (or Sunday nights), and I know a LOT of women out there are with me when I say that Mani-Pedis are the best way to unwind. I stick to one nail color a month (so as not to keep stressing myself on nail polish shades) and just keep fresh on a regular basis (I usually remove them Friday night if I don't have anything special for the weekend so as to let my nails "breathe").

RYOB Challenge 2016: March Update

The first of April is upon us and it's really amazing how another month of 2016 has gone by so fast. Anyway, in February I talked about the Read Your Own Book Challenge (read all about it here) and, as promised, I will be giving an update on the books I've crossed off my list.
