The Face Shop Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit in N203

My newest foundation for 2019 is from The Face Shop Ink Lasting Foundation. I'm in search for a good foundation that helps the skin looks good and healthy even in the afternoon. Foundation should be like the second skin, and this foundation claims that their thin but powerful formula smoothes onto the face, covering up blemishes with a natural but buildable finish. It also got SPF for sun protection

THE FACE SHOP Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit is available in 4 shades: V201, V203, N201, and N203.

I purchased the darkest shade N203 from Althea Korea for Php 670. For reference, I'm NC20-25 in MAC SF. 

The packaging is in clear plastic with a black cap and pump.

JUMISO - Yes, I Am Toner

I received this from Jumiso as part of the Vitaminers Program. It comes with their Vitamin serum, sheet mask.

  • AHA Ingredients - that's the Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid - known to remove dead skin cells and refine skin texture
  • Panthenol and Lemon Myrtle play as boosters that help maintain the water-oil balance of the skin
This toner is lightweight. Light fragrance.
Best for people who look for alcohol-free toners.
I'm using it with cotton pads since this is a runny type. This type of toner can be drying a bit because of the AHA. It's not something I prefer for layering - since it contains acids. 1 layer of acid type toner is enough for me as I have combi-dry skin.

Yesterday I have this pimple coming from the center of my lip cupid(scared with this one because it hurts and might grow really big) and below the lips, growth didn't proceed today!
I like how to help my pimple stop from growing - so on more acne scars and redness! For my pores, I still have the clogged pores especially around my nose area - I probably need a deep exfoliation here. It makes the skin glowy than without any applied toner at all. I like it!
It's available locally in the Philippines at @gobloomandglow and if you're outside the Philippines, check out @stylekorean_global

The Philippine International Pyromusical Competition (PIPC) is a tradition at the SM Mall of Asia that has brought endless enjoyment to millions of Filipinos each year.

Canada’s turn to paint the night sky bursting with colors on March 23 with their very own “Fireworks Spectaculars” and China’s Polaris Fireworks will surely stun the crowds. Sharing a video clip of the two countries.

To cap off the competition and close a decade of giving the best pyromusical exhibition in the Philippines, March 30 promises the most spectacular display of colors and surprises with Poland’s Surex Firma Rodzinna and the Philippines’ own Platinum Fireworks Inc. in a grand finale like no other.

Bata Heritage x Coca Cola Launch Capsule Collection

Global brand Bata’s Bata Heritage partners with Coca-Cola for an iconic capsule collection that puts a fresh spin on the legendary Bata Tennis and Hotshot styles. Coca-Cola—the second best-known word around the globe after ‘OK’—shares with Bata Heritage its distinctive red and white colors as well as values of authenticity, community and trust. The two family brands join their DNA to unveil an array of fun and graphic styles.

The Bata Tennis shoe has been manufactured since 1936 in India for school children to wear for their Physical Education classes and continues today to be one of the brand’s best-selling shoe. For this collaboration, the spelt-out Coca-Cola logo is applied in white on red canvas on the whole upper shoe and matches the piping and laces. Another Tennis model features the Coca-Cola red dot logo all over the front upper of the white canvas shoe, with matching red piping and laces. The same style is available with white dot logo (and white piping and laces) on red canvas. All styles feature white rubber outsole and toe cap.

Benton Shea Butter and Coconut Body Lotion

Some of you might not yet heard of the story behind the Benton Cosmetic.
‘Benton’ is inspired by and named after the movie ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ in which Benjamin Button grows younger with time. Benton desires to restore your skin back to its original healthy condition with healthy recipes, rather than to give temporary effects with harmful ingredients. Also, Benton presents freshly made products by
sticking to small batch production.

A few weeks ago, I got this huge yellow body lotion - the BENTON Shea Butter and Coconut Body Lotion. It was launched together with the Shea Butter and Coconut Hand Cream. I've checked that it's recommended for rough sensitive, dry skin, and when skin needs instant hydration and moisture boost. I felt really excited when I'm trying products for dry skin well, of course, I'm a bit dependent on them no matter how much I drink fluids. Aside from Shea Butter and Coconut oil, this lotion was greater than other lotions because of the ingredient 5-Hyaluronic Acid Complex - which maintains outer moisture on the skin, suppleness, hydrates fibers and damaged skin plus it contains hyaluronic acid.

Price: TBA
I tried it over my body especially my legs and feet where I think needs most of this product. I even have dry scale legs during the previous months and my heels got cracks. I also tried it on my face - yes! as moisturizer.

 How to Use
1) Dry yourself after a shower and apply the product to the skin. It may be used on the body and face.
2) Rather than completely drying yourself after a shower, it is recommended to start your skincare quickly while the skin is still moist as the skin loses moisture rapidly after taking a shower. 

Scent - I'm okay with the scent but I think some people are sensitive to scents, it got shea butter and strong natural coconut scent - it's like the Virgin Coconut Oil available on the market. 

Product - It's not too thick and it spreads well and absorbed by the skin easily. For the stickiness and greasiness - I think it depends on where I use it. When I'm in the office wherein there's AC - it doesn't feel sticky and greasy however when I'm home wherein the current highest temperature for the day was 33 Celsius in my place here in the Philippines - it does get sticky and greasy - well any lotion for me gets the same feel specially when its midtime of a summer day. So instead of using this during my morning, I prefer to use it at night and during non-summer days.
