Glowhill Beauty Makes me Glow Aurora Whitehole Glow Mask

This was my second time using this glitter peel off face mask. I realized that it's better to apply it thinly and even but enough to cover the whole face.

You can from GLOWHILL WEBSITE: http://www.glowhill.com/
PRICE: 25,000원
Tightens as it dries
✨Absolutely not so painful compared to my peel off masks before that even my small facial hairs got pulled off
✨It dries longer than non glittered peel off face mask
✨no glitter residue after completely peeling off
I tried to take a photo for the ingredients and noticed some favorites:
Centella Asiatica, Chia Extracts, Houttuynia, several flower extracts such as Chamomile, daisy, magnolia, hyaluronic acid

Silkygirl BB Cushion Review

I often rotate my foundations, from the liquid foundations to concealers to BB Creams then cushions. As for cushions, I'm lucky to receive these Silkygirl Magic BB Cushion from Silkygirl Philippines.

Cushion compact comes in elegant white packaging and a cushion puff
It contains 15g of a foundation.
Refills are not currently available in the Philippines
Price: Php 675 each

It comes in two shades: 01 Natural Light and 02 Natural Medium.

I already assumed that these are like my other cushions which might need some rework/adjustments (meaning I have to use another darker shade to contour) since most cushions, even their darkest shades were 2 to 3 tones lighter for me considering I'm NC25 in MAC.

BENTON Tea Tree Face Mist Review

BENTON Tea Tree Face Mist
Benton released an upgraded version of the Tea tree mist from the 40ml to a new bottle containing 80ml. 

✨Main Ingredients:
The main ingredients of this product are Tea Tree Leaf Water and Hyaluronic acid. Tea Tree Leaf Water helps for soothing the skin and hyaluronic acid for skin rehydration and keeping skin moist and firm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Where to buy: Benton Cosmetics $14.25 Was: $19.00
This has been my savior during my last week beach trip and whenever I take public transportation. Glad I didn't react to this face mist and I'm really enjoying using it. It refreshes my face and body - I often spray to my sunburnt arms because someone here loves snorkeling at lunch time, it felt cooler after spraying that lessens the discomfort (if you get what I mean). When using to face, It does rehydrate my skin and looking moist. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨Packaging and Scent:
It comes with a clear spray bottle that I find sturdy because I had it inside my check-in baggage from my last week trip. I also tried it on my hand carry and it doesn't leak at all! Its packaging comes in a sealed vacuum container that reassures minimum contact with air and suppresses oxidation. Minimal tea tree scent to almost nothing. The spray nozzle also spreads the content better and finer than other face mists I've tried. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

SOME BY MI Miracle Toner Review

SOME BY MI Miracle Toner
You might notice the advertisement of this toner everywhere in SNS - the 30 days skin improvement of the brand's model - nice marketing because I really bought this from a friend XD

So after using this AM and PM as my current toner for 3 days, 3 pimples appeared and the biggest one is under my nose tip which is really painful (I have it shared on my IG stories btw) and my COSRX patches can't help it as well 😶

I'm still going to use it for a week straight and let's see what will happen after the weekend ❤️

Skin Potions Dream Cream in Stella and Harper

I have literally no plans to buy it but really amazed when I swatched the tester of @skinpotions dream cream. I was only planning to buy the tinted balm for my sister but she asked me to try this dream cream then sold! 😋
I bought mine from Skin Potions Sta. Lucia Mall branch (nearby French Baker) for Php 249 each.
It's really pigmented for a little dot can already make my apples flush!

I just noticed that the colors of the cream inside the tube doesn't show how it really looks like when blended, but still happy with the shades I got. Stella looks lighter on the tube but when blended, I got amazed with how it changed the color.
Skin Potions Dream Cream in Harper
Just purchased shades, Harper and Stella. I like 2 dots on my cheeks and it was able to cover my apples! I have to practice how to make it close to equal application tho, a bigger dot = more color. Not yet sure how long could it last but let's see.
I have also posted a video of applying this on my cheeks, you can check my Instagram post for the video here

Purito Centella Green Level All in One pad

🌸Just a short background about the brand. PURITO is one of the new brands I've heard when I started here on AB Community, the brand ensures that their ingredients are EWG Green (safe) and toxin/chemical-free whenever possible. Most of their products don't come in fancy packaging and preferred to use eco-friendly packaging and also spend it to formulation and ingredients instead.

Price:  $21.00 @ Purito Mall Site

So here it is guys after 3 weeks of using this Purito Centella Green Level All in One pad. Contain great skin loving ingredients some of you might be familiar already:

  • Centella Asiatica Extract
  • BHA
  • Licorice Root
  • Tea Tree
  • HA

🌸It doesn't have AHA, which causes more irritating for pad use thus no need to worry about photosensitivity, but of course, I still use sunscreen.
🌸The packaging comes with little plastic tweezers. I often use this after face cleansing and it does wipe out remaining makeup and oil residue. I also noticed that my whiteheads are extra visible, no longer pore-stuck after a day of using it. BHA unclogs the pores but I can't totally remove them with the pad. (best time to use my nose pore strip!)

🌸Embossed side of the pad exfoliates skin, removes makeup residues, sebum, and oil in a mild way, while the soft side of the pad is decreasing irritation of using pads on thin skin area. I have also used it with my bacne and it doesn't feel getting bigger. No purging and breakout based on experience

TIAM Arbutin Blending Powder

TIAM Arbutin Blending Powder For Dull Skin
Special blending powder that transforms your cosmetics into lightening care products
✨Contains Arbutin and Niacinamide which are whitening functional ingredients that transforms dull skin to the bright complexion. It improves pigmentation by reducing melanin production and brightens uneven skin tone. It can be used as sebum powder for oily areas of the skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

✨Synergy Effect boosts the lightening effect of skincare and makeup products. It can be added to cleanser, toner, sheet mask, lotion, cream etc.
Texture - super fine powder and easy to add to any skincare.
✨How I use it:
Tiam Arbutin powder + Tiam B5 Toner mix dissolved completely whenever I rub my palms together but not completely when I tried to mix with finger only. My current problem is when I tried to use it as a sebum powder, because its super fine, there's a big chance to inhale some of the powder ☹️ I would prefer to mix and pat it to my face with my toner or cream. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have used it morning and night. It has immediate effect and noticeable too as you can see with my photo. It lightens the side with the mixture of Tiam Toner and Powder, the redness of my PIE subsides! As for me, it performed what exactly is expected. The side where I apply the powder even lightly toned up than the other side with using the toner alone. It didnt break me out so far. ❤️
