Liese Creamy Bubble Color

Have you tried to color your hair or often go to salon to do the touch ups? Hair coloring would be easier after trying this Liese Creamy Bubble hair color. I received 2 different colors from Liese Philippines (Thank you!)
Price: Php 449/box
Milk tea Brown: A soft and sweet brown
Rose Tea Brown: A lovely brown with a tint of pink
Usage:
  1. Prepare Mixture. Pour Solution 1 into the bottle containing Solution 2. Tilt the bottle 5 times slowly, dont shake
  2. Hold the bottle upright and gently squeeze the center of the bottle to dispense the foam on gloved hand. Apply plenty of foam onto DRY hair
  3. Massage well until the foams becomes CREAMIER
  4. Cover your hair entirely with foam and leave on for 20-30 minutes.
  5. When time is up, rinse well, shampoo and finish with the enclosed after-color rinse-off treatment.
Thoughts:
Check out my before and after(next day) hair photo. For some reasons, the color developed better the next day. My color results vary from what the box shown because of my natural hair color is really dark brown. I think I should blow dry my hair next time I try the other color. The color is even till the roots. Some people say the color fades after several washes, but its not after 2 weeks (I write this post about 2 weeks after using the bubble color). Hair coloring fades might depends on the hair products you're using.

Honestly, I really love everything here. I love the how easy I can apply it at home and feels like I just shampoo my hair. It's not as messy since bubble foam doesn't drip unlike hair color creams. The rinse-off treatment is great! I hope they're also selling a separate one, it just smells lovely for hair <3

  • Cheaper than having your hair colored in the salon. 1 box is too much for a short length hair like mine.
  • No sting smell and doesn't hurt the eyes even it has ammonia coloring like other color creams
  • Doesn't hurt my scalp
  • No drying of hair after wash
  • Not as messy as coloring creams
  • DIY at home! :)
  • Their colors are all lovely!
My Liese Creamy Bubble Hair Color came out amazing.

Farm Stay Grape Stem Cell Essence

If you need another skincare step on your routine, try adding up Essence. I feel like essence and serums are the same things but as per Korean Skincare, the essences should be traditionally more lightweight and less concentrated than serums. Essences are usually used prior to serums.
Product Claims:A lifting & anti-wrinkle facial essence Formulated with pea callus extract & gold kiwi extract Works quickly on skin to offer vitality Contains adenosine & grape callus extract for lifting effect Reduces the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines Unveils a firmer, smoother, re-sculpted & younger looking complexion
 Product information is written in Korean and English

PRICE & WHERE TO BUY:
PHP 690- www.mcdellbeauty.com/


I'm told be a Korean friend that it's filled with glycerin and hyaluronic acid which is an active player to immediately hydrate and comfort skin in restoring natural pH balance.

I got a chance to try this fab product from Farmstay. It's called Farm Stay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Lifting Essence. Thank you Farmstay!

Grapes has been discovered to have anti-aging benefits coming from the grape peel and seeds. I've researched that Grape Stem Cells can help to protect, maintain and regenerate epidermal adult stem cells.

For 2 weeks of using this product, I didn't break out (I have combination skin type). I'm using the essence before going to bed - when I skip my face mask. At my age of 20ish, I do not have yet any wrinkles, therefore I can't tell right now its efficiency in terms of wrinkles. As an essence product, it gives the same feel as my facial masks. I also smell somewhat fruity - like grapefruit. Skin feels well hydrated the next day I wake up.

This is a great essence for those who just getting started in trying essences.

KJM Cheek and Lip Tint

I have a lot of lipsticks at home and limited choices for lip tints. Now, I purchased some KJM Cheek and Lip tint online. The hype is real girls!


Where to buy:

  • KJM Cosmetics Official Website - If you order directly to their website, you can choose the label color if gold or silver Php 110 each + shipping fee. Their SF is quite expensive since they're from Davao and I'm in Manila Area. If you're planning to resell, SF would be worth it of course.
  • Jerwin Shop (Shopee App) - Php 120 each - free shipping fee during shopee promo. I bought mine here since I like to take advantage of the shipping fee ^_^
  • Other KJM Resellers Php 110 - Php 180

Thoughts:
  • A little sweet taste for the colors I got (during application only)
  • Lasts for a couple of hours - I honestly love the staying power
  • Available in a variety of colors
  • Not drying on lips
  • Comes with a roller ball container - no spills
  • Affordable
  • Not too bold and flashy
  • Runny consistency - easily stains the teeth if not properly applied
  • On Cheeks: It doesn’t even look like makeup, just blooming look even when I oil up already.

Pink Puff barely colors my lips so I just gave it to my younger sister.
Might post her photo here soon. ^_^ Here's a swatch of Dolled. I make it look like a gradient here - my favorite application for tints instead of covering the lips.
I think they are perfect for a natural look. In my case, Dolled looks adorable. I'm also waiting for my order of Bittersweet Magenta shade (I'll be updating this post as well when I received it).

MUZ Facial Sheet Masks

Due to work and family events I'm attending lately, I have no time for those pampering facials. For sure most of us face the same struggles and not all of us have the time and the money for those facial treatments.

Good thing there's a lot of masks available lately on our local drugstores such as Mercury and Watsons. These MUZ masks help me to take in control with my skincare at home. I've tried MUZ Facial Sheet Mask in Whitening + Collagen (Blue) and Whitening + Oil Control (Pink)

Blushing Beauty Aqua White BB Cream

Everyday commuting and staying hydrated is important to me - expect heavy traffic during rush hours in Manila. Hydration not only affects how I feel inside but outside as well. My skin would look dry and tired if not well hydrated. Water is part of my makeup routine as I feel like makeup adheres to skin longer if its damp.

I received this bottle of Aqua White BB Cream during the Blushing Beauty opening in SM North last  May 2016.

It claims to have a 3-in-1 Benefits
  • Whitening: Helps even out skin discoloration
  • Coverage: Covers skin imperfections; Comes in beige-bright, natural looking finish
  • Moisturizing: Moisturized and provides freshness as it touches the skin.
Price: P1,250
Thoughts about the product:

  • I like the yellow undertone of this water burst BB Cream. I thought it would be too light for me but it evenly blends to my skin color
  • Skin feels refreshed and hydrated
  • Semi-medium coverage
  • Provides instant hydration that lasts compared to non water burst BB Cream
  • Non Sticky feel
If you need some skin moisture boost but likes no moisturizer available, I recommend this BB cream from Blushing Beauty. A great, multi-tasking product to carry around with you.

FarmStay Snail Sun BB Cream

Did you know that snail enzyme commonly from their trails, contain proteins, glycolic acids, and elastin and helps to firm skin, regenerate cells and replenish moisture at the same time? Its commonly used in skin creams and face masks.

This good stuff slime is produced and used to self-heal their cuts on their soft bodies, thus making the skin firm and restores skins in the beauty products. It thinks I heard about this Snail around 2011 when it started mostly in Korean Face Masks and face creams but it been into the beauty lane date back to ancient Greek cosmetic.

I really wish no snails were harmed in the production of Snail Beauty products, hope they're producing it the safe way. It's my first time to try a BB Cream with Snail mucus ingredient and I got them from FarmStay Philippines.

Price & Where to Buy:
Php 500 - mcdellbeauty.com




Product Claims:
  • Whitening & Anti-wrinkle Blemish Balm with SPF 50 PA+++
  • With snail slime to repair skin
  • Dewy “youthful” finish
  • Great coverage for pores and fine lines
  • No strong scents
  • For all skin types

Thoughts:
  • It's not heavy or sticky.
  • It gives me a "lit from within" look - dewy!
  • Comes in 1 light shade only, but was able to blend in to my skin tone
  • It has a light to medium coverage
  • Packaging comes in Korean and English (Great help)
  • I didn't experience any breakouts after using it for several days
  • The thought of using a bb cream with Snail Extract feels fun and healthy.
Tube sealed!
