Review: Kevin Beautymaker Aqua Light Cream Founadtion

Kevin Beautymaker Aqua Light Cream Founadtion(credits:
30 ml
This revoluntionary new formulation contains valuable minerals. This moisturizer cream foundation hydrates the skin, evens out skin tone, and provides a radiant satin finish and a natural, healthy glow. 
DIrection: Use sponge or fingertip and apply foundation to your face making sure to blend into the hairline and jaw line.
Ingredients: Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Deep Sea water, Silica, Dimethicone, Methyl Paraben, Dipropylene Glycol, Polymethylsisesquioxane/titanium Dioxide/stearic Acid/Alumina, Titanium Dioxide/Aluminium Hydroxides/Acrylates Dimethicone Copolymer, Cyclopentasioxane, C12-c15 Benzoate, Sorbitan Stearate, Alcohol, 

I first learned about this foundation from Tracy of I was very curious with this foundation since she said that it has a full coverage. I thought I have found my HG and exact color match in MAC's Studiofix Fluid in NC 37 but this foundation changed my mind. I got this from a swap in girltalk. I was really disappointed with Revlon's Photoready foundation. The shade does not suit me at all. 
When I got this jar, I immediately opened it and I actually got dismayed. It looked too light and yellow in the jar. I was like "ohh great,, I knew it another fail. " When I came home and tried it on my face I was really amazed that it blended perfectly on my skin. The shade fits me so well you would not even notice I put something. I tried using this with my hands and sponge. However, applying it using my Lumiere's Stippling brush creates that beautiful air brushed look. Hands Down!! I hate the packaging though. Look at my jar so dirty with the products all over it.
Look how thick and creamy this foundation can get. It gives me that full and flawless coverage. The texture of this foundation is the best I have tried. It glides easily and covers my imperfections. There are times that I skip the concealer process because this foundation does a good job of evening my skintone. I have super dry skin but this makes my skin looks luminous!! I set it with my in2it powder foundation and ellana white choco velvet finishing HD powder and my face looks beautiful for hours (ohh not the whole actually like 4 -5 hours the most). I do not look oily but it gives my skin a dewy glow after hours of using it.
Look how light it looks on my skin but melts perfectly when properly blended.
Here is a quick shade comparison with my MAC Studiofix.
This foundation looks yellow while MAC NC37 has a hint of peach on it and darker too.

I will definitely buy one when I ran out!!!

My skin looks almost perfect noh? I love it.

Review: The Benett Joyce Nails and Spa Experience

is a premier quality spa and a sanctuary of relaxation and renewal.
We offer an essential union of luxurious therapies infused with the intimacy and comfort of your own home. We invite you to discover the haven of restoration that your home can become. Designed for pure relaxation and pampering, we offer a range of treatments from an extensive menu including massages, hand and foot care, as well as body treatments for skin whitening and anti aging using pure natural ingredients. We also help organize special events, parties and many different celebrations. Our goal is to keep you and your friends together.

I always hear about home service massage but spa within the comforts of your home is very new to me. I am very excited to try their services with my bestfriend!! It was our  one of our memorable bonding moments after a very long time. It was very timely when Bennett , the owner of this wonderful spa, contacted me if I want to review her spa services. I cannot resisit such opportunity!!  Benett  was very nice to accommodate us early in the morning. Take note their operating hours does not start until 2 pm and she booked us. Thank you so much Benett!! I was really giddy when I saw this cute vehicle with their banner on. The service arrived on time (were it not for the fact that they got lost because I do not know how to give proper directions!!yay) Her therapists were in blue scrub suit uniform complete with white shoes and they look so neat and professional. It was like a makeover team arriving at my bestfriend's house.. haha
They set up the massage bed quickly. The room of my bestfriend was instantly turned into a spa!!tada!!hehe

Scrubs, masks, body souffle and cleanser!! They look yummy and smell heavenly!!

Look at this!! Aren't they cute? I really think that this spa deserves an A++++ for this! 

Chanel Polishes

For nail polish lovers!! 
Not my foot!! haha 

I know you are all curious to know what service I availed. I tried the Green Tea Whitening Sugar Glow Body Polish with Massage. This is complete with Dry Body Brushing, Cleansing, Exfoliating, Masking, Warm Wrap and Moisturizing Body Souffle. The process took almost 2 hours or so. I felt like a queen/princess being bathed!!Move over Cleopatra! Well, the green tea was very soothing and I smell so good right after the process! I was can't stop touaching my arms and legs because they feel so smooth! Look at me at the picture above... I was almost drifting to sleep because of the massage.  She gave me this service for free.. wow thanks benett!!

My bestfriend tried the Chocolate Indulgence Body Treatment and she told me that she smell sweet even after the end of the day. She also had her nails done thru Express Cucumber Melon Manicure and Pedicure!

Guess what,, if you are a first time customer you get a 20% discount on any of their services!!yay we saved a lot.. I can't wait to try more of their services!

What I love the most is their effort to make you feel that you are in a spa! It was complete with candles and relaxing background music !! I was sharing this exprience to my sorority sister and she told me that she always have her home service massage but without this spa effects at all!!   I highly recommend this spa to all of you!!! Benett would love to know your opinions where to put up her first branch. :D thanks

Purederm Nourishing Repair Hair Mask

Purederm Nourishing Repair Hair Mask

Hi everyone. This a very late post. I takes pictures of this product before but this is are  the only ones left.. I accidentally erased a lot of pictures. **sigh** Moving on, I got this hair repair mask from Purederm Package months ago. I am really excited to use this one because my hair back then was really dried out. 

Things to love about this product:

  • The scent is really relaxing
  • It gives a refreshing/cooling feeling
  • Made my hair a bit shiny and softer for a day
I thought that it has a lot of product in the sachet but turned out it was just enough for my long and thick hair. It did not do much in moisturizing my dry locks. For me, it felt like a regular conditioner but with a twist. The minty feel is what I really love about it.. I recommend this to those with those who have normal hair. To those with super dry hair like mine, it does not do much difference at all.

This product is locally available at Watsons for around 79 pesos. :D

Have a nice day everyone!

To All My Thomasian Readers

Please vote my sorority sister, Lorraine Taguiam, for President in the upcoming election for the Central Student Council. She does really well in her studies and an active student leader too.

What is inside my Makeup Kit?

ohh shoot I accidentally deleted the picture!geez.. I am so sleepy. 
I had my political law exams today. I just hope it went well.
I made this Philosophy Purse as my makeup kit because it was really roomy and the red vinyl material makes it water resistant. This is part of Philosophy's Travel kit. I am loving their Microdelivery wash and Hope in a jar. 

Here is a peek inside my makeup kit. I bring these everyday to school:
1. Bench Sanitizer in Kiwi Frost
The scent is really addicting. I lather this on my palm every now and then when I am studying my individual studyroom in the library and smell my hands thereafter. I know I am such a weirdo.

2. Wet n Wild Blush in Berry Shimmer
This is my blush for the day. I now alternate different blushes and lipstick every other day to finish my makeup.

3. Lancome Sample Size Juicy Tubes in Pink Bling and Butterflies
These smell like candies!!

4. Vaseline Lotion

5. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Raspberry. This never leaves my kit  and it is my default blush/lipstick if I forget my blush or lipstick for the day.

6. Carmex

7. Eskinol Pressed Powder 
I am trying this one. I am in a search of a locally available powder that would be perfect for my dry skin.

8. Fanny Serrano Lash Curler

9. Ecotools Kabuki Brush

10. WetnWild MEgalash Mascara

11. Nichido Brow Pencil

12. Revlon Softstroke Liner in Black Brown

13. Nichido Lipliner in Rosette

I do not bring much naman di ba? 
Godbless everyone.
