Haul: Skincare stuffs

I bought these last wednesday because i ran out facial wash. My skin is in a bad state. i have so many rashes and tiny bumps on my cheeks. I have super dry and sensitive skin and finding the right products for skincare is the hardest (oh next to finding my right shade of foundation,, hehe). I have an inkling that the weird weather was the root of this plus nivea soft. I think mine got expired because i have been using the 100 ml tub for months now. I think dipping on the tub is really unhygienic (and i always double dip :S) , perhaps some bacteria or other minute organism infected my moisturizer.. :S

I bought clean and clear clear fairness moisturizer because my friend recommended it!! this moisturizer sucks!! This can't withstand the dryness of my skin.. hmpf! also, this leaves a white cast when applied that makes your skin a bit luminous. I could use this alone though without using any powder on top but it's really hard to blend.

This facial scrub is really nice. Better than the regular st. ives apricot scrub imo. The granules are finer and the consistency is watery which is way better than the chunky and abrasive st. ives facial scrub. It smells good too not that strong scent. The plus factor of this product because this contains salicylic acid and zinc. :D


I bought these two stuffs today. The gigantic tub of St. Ives moisturizer costs only 225 Php. The scent is not overpowering which I love because i have allergic rhinitis.
It is really moisturizing too..

^^Look!!This will last me for a very looooong time but i must transfer it to a pump bottle for hygienic purposes. I passed by Body Shop today and it is on HUGE SALE!! I went out buying only a lip butter!!weehh.. that is a huge success.. I am actually on a NO BUY policy but i could not resist the lip butter.
Tantalizing lip butter.Only 195 Php. I love the yes yes yes/ oui oui oui.
It mean YES YES YES to SAFE SEX.
MTV and The Body Shop collaborated in the fight against HIV. For every purchase of this tantalizing lip butter part of it goes to their partner charity, The Staying Alive Foundation which raises HIV and AIDS awareness around the world and empowering young people to stay safe.
This really smells so good and is really addicting. :D

My college buddies and I will be going to Tagaytay tomorrow and will be staying overnight. I packed two bags! This contains makeup alone. Is that too much? hehe

I want to share with you one of my favorite blush.
L'oreal Hip Limited edition cream blush in coquette. I bought this on ebay too for 180 Php only!! The compact is very handy. It has a built in mirror on the bottom side. The color is hot neon pink on the pan but when applied it gives me the prettiest pink glow. Sadly, i only get to use this when i don't have any rashes. :C

  3. Hey hun! Thank for stopping by my bloggy, hehe. The lip butter you got looks really good. I hope I can find it at my the body shop! I've actually never stepped inside their store before, lol. The HIP creme blush looks really cute too! I bought one of theirs before, but I didn't really think the texture was creamy at all. Is yours? :) I love the colour you got!

  5. @fifi: i saw pure block.. :D it's different though,, :D

    @nikki: correct!! hehe :D

    @ms. juliene: hip blushes are not creamy (i am comparing this bloom sheer colour creme because i have lots before until i discarded them) at all but applies beautifully. the plus factor is it is not sticky.. :D the texture is akin to paula dorf's cheek creme.. i have candy apple before.. :D)

    @ms. giling: i did not know it too until i read reviews in girltalk.. :D

  8. Oooh you did very well!! I love the Yes, yes, yes lip butter too! It's so soft on your lips! Only trouble is you just want to lick it off after you put it on.. oh wait, or is that just me :P Haha I LOVE that you have a big bag chocka full of makeup, now I don't feel so bad. I usually pack more makeup than I do clothes, even for an overnight trip! But it's too hard to leave anything behind, who is to know what you might need right :) Have a fantastic time :)<3

  15. sis, the c&c moisturizer works better for those with oily skin. i guess thats their target market, considering all of their products that i've tried
