Laziz Restaurant Antipolo 
I probably forgot the taste of Mediterranean Cuisine but when I got a chance to tried it out, Dang! I can really tell how the taste was different from other cuisines. I was invited to try Laziz in Antipolo, The only legit Arabic Mediterranean Place in Upper Antipolo.
They're Halal Certified and the Shawarma is same with Saudi Style. Their dips are perfect especially the hummus ✨

Faith in Face - I am always bright Sheet Mask

 This mask from Faith in Face is a pearl cellulose sheet mask - thinner than the most cotton sheet mask and adheres very well to skin.
 Main Ingredients:
Niacinamide; Marlow leaves; cow-slip and other herbal extracts complex
 However, the downside maybe is that the essence was so runny like water and it drips to my shirt when applying the mask~
you might know the feeling of saving the essence for your skin during applying face mask!
Another thing even it adheres fine, it dries saggy for lip and cheek area - check my photo wearing the mask, but that's about it.
▪️Moisturises? - yes, it does!
▪️Brightening effect? Yes!
▪️Soothes my skin redness? Absolutely!
▪️Gentle to skin - Yes for me and not irritations after use :D

This could be the cheapest Cellulose Sheet Mask I found so far. If you're in the Philippines you can find @faithinfaceph Masks @watsonsph 😊

Glowhill Glam Gold Make Up Facial Mask Review

Love glitters? Check out Glowhill beauty's glam glow makeup facial mask.
It's a mask that can be used as a makeup base if you prefer glossy makeup, I remembered some YT vloggers use serums with pearls to have a healthy canvass, I think this is similar to those serums, just in the form of face masks - that's how I understand how to use it.

It helps the skin look more healthy and dazzling because it contains a gold pearl.
To be used during the morning or prior to makeup application.
The sheet mask is made up of tencel material which is smoother than cotton and wool. The mask also contains 20 ml of the glittery essence.
I have used it for 20 minutes. And have to wait for another 20 minutes to let it set more, my cushion absorbs most of the pearls (which I don't like, id rather keep them on my face that's why I use the mask😅). I end up using my fingers to apply a little of concealer instead of my cushion

I looked really glowy after removing the face mask. The essence in mostly gold color makes my faces looks more on the yellow side but my concealer can balance. Skin tends to oil up a lot whenever I'm staying outdoors. Things go well when I came back indoors with AC, my skin doesn't look dry anymore.

I recommend using this mask if you would prefer to have a glossy dewy look and not bothered with the glitter pearls. It's best to use before applying dewy look makeup.

TMYS - Iconic Brightening Essence

I recently received a product from TMYS Thailand, it was their best seller essence: the Iconic Brightening Essence. TMYS is an indie brand from Thailand which offers gentle and efficient products, Vegan & Cruelty-Free, and offers worldwide shipping. For every purchase of TMYS products, $1 will be donated to UNICEF - The UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) promotes better health, education, and quality of life. I can't read Thai so I do my best to use google translate.

Product Claims:
Essence formulated with fortified with the powerful brightening ingredients, Pure C, B3, and HA. It helps visibly correct skin tone, reduce dark spots and restore moisture balance.
TMYS is Vegan brand and the iconic brightening essence is free from Paraben, PEG, Silicone, Mineral oil, Petrolatum Phthalate, Mercury, Retinoic acid, Steroid, Hydroquinone, Synthetic colorant, Fragrance
Thoughts:
If you have skin allergies, I recommend testing patch first as the essence contains Vitamin C which may cause irritation to some.
Taking a daylight photo to see how it does brighten the skin. I have combination to dry skin
Just be informed that since the product contained pure vitamin C, we have to be a little careful on how we store our skincare - should avoid direct sunlight that may cause oxidation.
Scent:
It smells like a little of lime, not sure if some people might even notice it.
Price:
Price and where to buy: www.tmys.co.th - 1290 Baht
price may change without prior notice~
I also saw a note on their Instagram page that they offer a discount if interested buyers would send them a direct message! https://www.instagram.com/tmysthailand/

Ingredient analyzer from CosDNA:
The formulation feels a little bit grainy when I start to spread out to my face, I think it has to always shake it. I'm not sure if it was the dried essence from the dropper or it was the essence itself.
I like how easily my skin absorbed the essence but it feels heavier than my most essence.
I like that it brightens up the skin but I can't use it during the day, just because I prefer to use vitamin c essence during my PM Routine.

TMYS sent this product in exchange for my honest review

Watsons BodyXpert Cute Lip and Cheek Tint Set

I'm checking out Christmas gift sets at Watsons. Here in the Philippines, Watsons offers high-quality and affordable Christmas gift sets for face, bath, and body. I found out these set for Php149 (buy any 3 gift sets for Php399; almost P50 or ~1 USD per tint)!
The set comes in 3 shades:
  1. Sunny Sparkle - coral shade
  2. Frosty Pink - red pink
  3. Candy Cane - red-orange
Directions mentioned to lightly dab the tint on lips and cheeks and blend evenly for a glowing look!
Here's the skin swatch:
L-R: Sunny Sparkle, Frosty Pink, Candy Cane
L-R: Sunny Sparkle, Frosty Pink, Candy Cane
Candy Cane
Sunny Sparkle
Sunny Sparkle
✨ Decent lip tints, worth it for 149
✨ 2.7ml content for each color
✨ Very hard to remove with micellar water makeup remover, oil remover, balm
✨ Bitter taste
✨ Have to carefully apply it might stain teeth and skin, applying too much might look too neon so apply light then build if needed.
✨ Recommended if you're looking for hard to remove lip tints, but consider exfoliating iif you have dry lips like mine.

My photo below for frosty pink and candy cane looks similar because I have applied candy cane first and it stained my lips already. I have to apply powder and concealer to give a little justice for frosty pink.

I think it's an affordable and nice gift for your BFFs this coming holidays. It might get out of stock as well very soon so better get a set one now :D
