First #FreyjaBeautyHaul

Last November 23, I woke up checking the emails and found a massive 50% off from a newsletter of Freyja. I've created an account several weeks ago when they launched. Yet, I haven't bought any nor even got a chance to visit their store in Ayala.

Now is the chance! I was able to get several items from them

I got some face masks and beauty blenders. My total purchases reached more than Php 5,000 and so I was able to get a freebie kit from Dirty Works. It contains 4 pieces of Bath Essentials.

The original beauty blender pink costs Php 990 and was able to buy them for only Php 495! good buy!

23 Nov - Order placed

27 Nov - My order was by Ninja Van courier

Fast shipping!

OMG Oh My Girl Hair Color Cream in Dark Copper Review

While doing my normal grocery, I found these new products from OMG. OMG is a nail polish brand from the Philippines. Now, OMG offers more salon products such as these hair color cream and the Brazilian keratin serum.

  • Hair Color Cream Php 129.75
  • Brazilian Keratin Serum is Php 29.75 for 5pcs
Since I'm going to color my hair, I'm expecting to get a dry hair so I decided to get this Brazilian serum. The Serum has a full size, but I realized to try it first before purchasing the full size.

McDonald's and SM Supermalls #NationalThankYouWeek

Althea Korea x Get it Beauty - Real Fresh Skin Detoxers

10 seconds skincare? Could that be fast?! A few months ago, I received this set of Skin Detoxers and I find it great. I already finished half of the green tea tube. Let's talk about both variants for this blog post. I got the two tubes from Althea Korea What are these Real Fresh Skin Detoxers? - 2-in-1 cleanser pack that nourishes the skin in 10 seconds - Contains real rose petals and extracts to refine - Leaves the skin fresh and smooth


Another purchase from StyleKorean was this set of Stay Young Box which you can purchase from their site. Update: As of 27 Nov, this box is already out of stock. This set costs $9.9 or ~P535. I personally think of it as a good deal because these are like travel size, and not the sachet samples sizes.

The following kit contains:
  1.  COSRX; Salicylic ACID Daily Gentle Cleanser
  2.  d'Alba; White Truffle Mist Serum
  3.  Sulwhasoo; Essential Balancing Emulsion EX
  4.  Benton; Fermentation Eye Cream
  5.  Etude House; Soonjung PH 5.5 Relief Toner
  6.  Pyunkang Yul; Nutrition Cream
  7. AVAJAR; Perfect V Lifting Premium Eye Mask
  8. HYGGEE; All-In-One Tightening & Firming Mask
Excited to try these items!

The Skin House Vital Bright and Black Snail Bubble Mask

The Skin House Vital Bright Serum and Cream
Last month I got these items from The Skin House, this is a fresh naturalistic cosmetic brand exclusively for online Korean Market founded in 1970 and launched 2011. The brand's motto was "Cosmetics good for skin", the skin house offers newly manufactured fresh cosmetics for the customers.

It's been a while that I have been using these 2 items from their Vital Bright line. The Skin House Black Snail Bubble Mask was used once a week since I find it more of like an exfoliator.

    Our Home brins the joys of Christmas to your home with its Merry Styles of Christmas collection. We’ve put together five-holiday looks - ranging from the festive to the pristine, to the avant-garde, to the classic, to the lavish – that you can choose from to express your yuletide style.
    • Christmas Le Grand 
    Festive, outlandish, spectacular. Our Home’s take on the yuletide season takes a major turn as the circus comes to Christmas town. Jewel tones and bright and vibrant hues take center stage against dramatic black furniture and gold furnishings; while harlequin masques in black and white revolve around golden circles. The circus has truly come to town in Our Home.

    • Christmas in Calm Splendor
    Frosted, pristine, pure. Snowflakes and icicles suspended in mirrored decorations, garlands adorned with frosted teardrops in icy blue and trees embellished with pearls and silver trinkets, all give off a serene and silent vibe – another way of celebrating the other side of Christmas. Our Home gives off a different way of celebrating the most wonderful time of the year - modern, contemporary and sleek.

    • Boho Christmas 
    Avant-garde, laid back, muted. The look is different. The feel is carefree. This is Our Home’s take on bohemian chic. Pastel colors, soft tones and a hushed and gentle atmosphere complete an unconventional Christmas theme. Trees and garlands adorned with strings of pearls in light and pale hues, large roses and poinsettias that fade into a blissful background while butterflies with their glittered wings a-flutter embellish wreaths and twigs giving off an ethereal and whimsical character.

    • Christmas Tradition 
    Established, classic, time-honored. A traditional celebration takes place as Our Home pays tribute to an immortal and enduring combination of red and green. A forest of garlands and wreaths drop from the ceiling as inverted Christmas trees form a chandelier… arches are numerously decked with lights… Santa Claus, Frosty and Rudolph reunite while toys and candies dangle above… this is how Christmas is celebrated the traditional way.

    •  The Wizard of Posh
    Affluent, lavish, lush. Our Home pays homage to the emerald city as elegance and opulence become a unique statement of Christmas. Luxurious, exclusive and classy – Christmas never looked this posh as black and gold provide a backdrop for the rich and lavish emerald tones to shine through.

    Shop and pay in 24 months at 0% in Our Home's Best Deal Ever!

    At SM Kids, the holidays are all about fashion fun! And this means putting pieces from key trends together and letting young imaginations work.

    With celebrity children and young Royals like Harper Beckham, North West, Blue Ivy, Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge leading the way, fashion for kids has never been more exciting. And they’ve influenced young fashion not only in trends but in attitude.

    There is a return to classicism, traditional children’s clothes that are elegant and timeless as influenced by Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. For girls, there are romantic details, delicate floral prints, and full voluminous skirts, as well as fun and festive ruffles that add volume and dimension, and have a dramatic flair. For boys, there are checkered fabrics, corduroy making a comeback, and classic shirts.
    And this is where the fashion fun begins with layering, which takes young style to a whole new level while being functional and fashionable. The look is slightly mismatched, delightfully over the top, but strong on young independent style.

    Let the little missy wear an oversized denim jacket, corduroy or coat over a statement tee or a printed top with a metallic skirt or a denim bottoms. Little guys, on the other hand, can layer sleeveless hoodie over a chambray polo and knit jogger or match an oversized hoodie over a printed polo and a colored trouser.

    Heimish Bulgarian Rose Water Hydrogel Eye Patch Review

    I'm glad to receive this Heimish Bulgarian Rosewater Eyepatch from Go Bloom and Glow. Its one of the most instagrammed patch at the moment. It's really pretty to look at specially those sparkles! perfect if you go for Texture Tuesday shots (IG peeps, you know what I mean here!).
    Where to Buy: https://gobloomandglow.com/products/heimish-bulgarian-rose-water-hydrogel-eye-patch (click image to go to site)
    Price: ₱841.50

    Product Info:
    Perfect for tired eyes, this multifunctional Heimish Bulgarian Rose Water Hydrogel Eye Patch not only brightens dark circles under eyes but also helps skin stay firm and bouncy. With Bulgarian rose water as its star ingredient, each patch is full of skin-benefiting vitamins and minerals, plus ultra-hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties. Made with unique highly elastic hydro-gel material that allows essence to fully absorb into the skin for maximum benefits, the Heimish Bulgarian Rose Water Hydrogel Eye Patch can also be used anywhere on your skin that needs extra care such as your forehead and cheeks.

    Major Ingredients:
    Water, Ethyl Hexanediol, Sucrose, Allantoin, Calcium Lactate, Pentylene Glycol, Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Extract, Cellulose Gum, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ceratonia Siliqua (Carob) Gum, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) Powder, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Glycerin, Arginine, Nelumbo Nucifera (Sacred Lotus) Flower Extract, Propanediol, Pinus Sylvestris (Scot's Pine) Leaf Extract, Fragrance, Niacinamide, Calcium Chloride, Adenosine, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Tripropylene Glycol, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Potassium Chloride, Titanium Dioxide, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chlorphenesin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Disodium EDTA, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Water, Tin Oxide (CI 77861), Carmine (CI 75470), Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Portulaca Oleracea (Green Purslane) Extract, Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (Guar) Gum, Dipropylene Glycol
    The tub was filled with Bulgarian Rose Water that a great ingredient which helps moisturize skin. I use it not only under eyes but all over my face! It comes with a spatula which I find very helpful in getting the pieces of the patch. There are also times wherein the essence turned into a jelly residue - I'm not pretty sure what is the reason behind this. I love using it when refrigerated - such a great stuff for tired eyes. I can also have it dissolved on hot water and use as essence! It does help to brighten my under eye but not in a permanent way because of my sleeping schedule and irregular work shifts.
    Overall, I love this eye patch!

    Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway Review

    If I can only choose one skincare, I will always go for sunscreen! Why? I'm 27 and glad to see I do not have any dark spots yet thanks to sunscreen. Most ladies from my family line already have dark spots and usually not comfortable of using sunscreen on a daily basis. 

    Where to Shop: Althea Korea Product Link

    Price: Php 480

    One of their reason was stickiness and the white cast. I'm currently using this sunscreen for weeks now, it's lightweight sunscreen that gives a velvety finish and glowing skin.

    The Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway has SPF50, a great choice for skin protection! I told me, family, that it's not the typical sunscreen they have tried. It's not sticky and for the white cast?
    It does have but goes away after my skin absorbed it. Petal Velvet Sunaway is made from Damask rose extracts perfect for me who loves the scent of rose! Did I already say that this is also waterproof? Oh yes! however, I think we always need to reapply every 30 minutes when doing outdoor activities. I would definitely repurchase!

    Love and Hate: Sunnies Face

    I honestly hate how challenging it was to order these fluffmatte lipsticks of Sunnies Face during their launch, even ordering online, or going to store itself (they have limits in purchasing and queue before entering the store). What a hassle. I even think of not buying them anymore. πŸ˜’

    Until last 11.11 Caccie (Thank you for PSA! 😘) mentioned all colors are back on @lazadaph! πŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ

    I immediately checked out these colors. I thought I'll still hate the brand but I'm amazed at how flattering the colors looked on me, I don't look washed 😍 I have mixed feelings for the current packaging but still same formula as what they claim.

    Do you have local makeup purchases last 11.11? 😻
