Kojie San Sunblock Face SPF 50

Sunblock before applying makeup in the morning makes me think it might be unnecessary thinking most of my foundations already have SPF. Please be informed that not all sunblock feels sticky like what other brands offer, not all sunblocks are applicable for both face and body.

Most of us think that sunblocks are white, thick and would make the skin oily thinking it might not be appropriate to use to face on an everyday basis - As well as use it under makeup.

As I was looking inside Watson's Shop, I compare several face sunblock and it's really hard to choose if you have several options to try considering the price, size, SPF, brand name, etc. Some sunblocks that contain ultra high SPF usually have higher levels of active ingredients making it feeling heavier. I'm also worried that I might end up to those sunblocks that I discuss before. Most sunblocks are sealed and do not have testers, I'm lucky and I'm fine that I choose Kojie San Sunblock Face with SPF 50.

Essence Soo Glow Highlighter [REVIEW]

Hi everyone, adding a luminous glow to the face also known as strobing is the current makeup trend I've read from several beauty websites. Strobing to enhance facial features? Why not!
I'm interested to try this highlighter from Essence because of several pretty swatches I found all over the internet. I ended up trying this Essence Soo Glow Cream to Powder Highlighter in 01 Look on the Bright Side.  Since I haven't got my the Balm Mary Lou-Manizer, I'm looking for a dupe in a cream form - just looking for something quite similar to its shade prior to buying Mary Lou.
Description from Essence:
glamour glow! the new highlighter conjures a beautiful shimmer. its creamy texture turns into a velvety, powdery formula upon application. easy to apply with your fingers, it sets gorgeous accents on your cheekbones, underneath the brows or in the inner corners of your eyes. the highlighter is available in two different colors – one light rosé and a pretty champagne tone – so it’s ideal for every complexion.
Swatch and Thoughts:
It got a tolerable amount of pretty shimmers however it doesn't last long to my skin. It fades at the middle of the day, and I'm not the type of person who always re-apply makeup.
The cream can be built up and can be blended easily. It's lightweight and I use my fingers to blend instead of other applicators. 01 shade looks pretty to my skin tone, but I just hope it could stay longer. It could last for 3-4 hours for me. Anyway it's still a nice product for the quality and price!

This specific product was not locally available here in The Philippines, I pre-ordered Soo Glow from Jean of BeautyShopPh. I forgot the price but I believe it was not more than ~Php 200.

Skin Potion's Lip Candy in Snow White's Kiss

Lately, I'm having one of my mannerisms, pulling the chapped part of my dry lips. I decided to stop using lipstick just because I'm lazy to do my makeup in the morning. I have a lip balm from Nivea Lip balm Active Care SPF 15 - the blue tube - yes it's for men, yet it doesn't heal the lips completely, but I like how it moisturize. PS: I'm taking a lot of fluids every day. Probably the rainy weather of June - July and the lipsticks I'm using before made my lips a bit more drying.
