Review: Happy Skin Sealed With a Kiss (Limited Edition) and Valentine’s Kiss

After being swayed with the matte line of lippies, I refrained from using the ordinary kind. However, I recently opened my heart again to these regular ones and this time, it was with Happy Skin.

I have heard about Happy Skin couple of years ago and bought myself one from my Zalora credits a little late last year but since I got a whole bunch of lipsticks in line, I only used them recently.

Happy Skin is one of the few local lipstick brand that has very cute and dainty packaging. Their team really put hard work on their design. I love each design on their products, not only on their lipstick line but with their other items as well. 

I got the Sealed With a Kiss lipstick inside a tin cute box with this very pretty design and the Valentine's Kiss in a separate lipstick box. The latter was endorsed by Kris Aquino and it was a limited edition. 

The color pay off of each lipstick was great. One swipe and you'll get good color. It is highly pigmented and has rich moisture too. My only issue though was about it's longevity. I hope it lasts more on the lips.  

I got all of these lippies at a very good discount. I bought it for only a total of P1373.60. I got the Sealed with a Kiss for P909.30 and the Valentine’s Kiss shade for only P384.30. I paid P80 for shipping. Actually, it’s already a pretty good deal because the Sealed With a Kiss kit comes at P1299.00  and Kris' fave is at P549.00. I think I already got a good deal with that. 

These lipsticks are the moisturizing type. I am not afraid that it will dry my lips compared to the matte I am using. However, I found it difficult to use because it is transfer-proof and easily removed. For my lifestyle, I need lippies that lasts really long because I always talk everyday in front of my class. Reapplying will take much of my time. But it is nice to take a break from the matte lippies once in a while.

  • It isn't long wearing and transfer-proof. 
  • A little pricey compared to other drug store lippies. (This is good quality though.)
I don’t have much to say with its effectiveness. I like the simplicity of the product. Bloggers also rave about this and I think I now know why. You can try using it for yourself and see the difference.

My love for lippies will still stand through. Good thing I was able to try Happy Skin and I know I love the brand. Hoping to experience and get more shades from their line soon. 

Review: Holika Holika Golden Monkey Glamour Lip 3 – Step Kit

Lip exfoliation is one of the things I always forget whenever I exfoliate my skin. So when I had the experience of using Holika Holika Golden Monkey Glamour Lip 3 – Step Kit for the first time, I liked it so much despite the long process and application.

I already have used nose sheets, face masks, eye patches and the like. But this is my first time to use a lip kit patch, I was amazed with the results that I am all positive in reviewing this.

The packaging is really cute which has a money picture in front. I personally chose to get this because I want to experience applying lip kit on my lips. It is a 3-step process and each has different purpose on the lips. It includes lip peeling patch, volume lip pack and honey lip essence.

I purchased this together with the other items from Althea using my coupon. Original price is at P180.00 but I got this on sale for a P100.

I like the effect of each procedure. The peeling pouch needs to be used in a clean lips. You need to lightly scrub it on the lips and it will exfoliate the lips gently without harshly scrubbing off the dead skin cells. 

The volume lip pack is my fave because I felt that it's the reason why my lips turned out moisturized after the process. It is a hydro gel lip patch that you need to patch on the lips for 15 minutes and removed after the allotted time. 

The last step was the honey lip essence which acts as a treatment for moisturizing dry lips. It's a little thick on the lips so this is better to apply at night before sleeping. 

Yay for me! (◕‿  
  • Got it at Althea using my coupon. It's good as FREE.
  • Very cute packaging
  • It really removed dead skin on the lips gently.  
  • It has a bit of translation so it aids in the application.

Nay! ()
  • It’s a 3-step process making application really long.

Price: P100.00 each
Bought from: Althea Ph
Size: 2g.

For lip exfoliation, I think this one deserves to be tested out. I admit that most of the time, I forget to exfoliate my lips but I exfoliate my face. This pucker needs TLC once in a while.

Pardon those faces as I was about to dose off that time and I look haggard for the day! 😁

Try it and I know it is something that you would love to experience. Can you suggest other lip product that targets pampering the lips? I'm reading!

Xoxo. ♥

Review: Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Black Head 3 – Step Kit

Whiteheads and blackheads are always my main concern when it comes to skin care. As much as I can, I always find time in using nose strips so that those little icky yucky particles will be removed. Actually, I feel that my skin already improved a lot compared before. Thanks to all my sponsors and myself for all those effective skin care products which I'm currently using. I will draft a separate skin care post soon.

Anyway, it is the time again to put on those nose pack which I usually do once every week or twice or whenever I feel like doing it. Now I have a new product to try. It is this Pig Nose from Holika, Holika. It is something new to me so let me go on with the review.

It is a cute packaging of a 3-in-1 product. I like that the photo is catchy and it attracts customers. Actually, it’s the packaging that made me decide to get this because I really think that it’s so cute. The downside though is that it doesn't have any translation so it's difficult to understand how to use it. I just relied on the digits shown per area. 

This was also included from the Althea loot I got using a coupon. If bought individually, it is sold at P 160.00 but got it for a discounted price of P80.00.

The kit includes a 3-step process. The first one is a nose sheet which has a little moist in it. It's like a cleansing sheet for me. It's like a preparation for the pull-off. The second is a dry nose sheet and I used it just like the other individual nose sheets I bought. It is for the pull-off but I really didn't see any whiteheads/blackheads removed. I feel that it isn't effective in pulling those yucky particles. The last one is a heavy moisturized nose sheet for post-application. It soothes the nose for the second process. 

Yay for me! (◕‿  )

  • Got it using coupon
  • Very cute packaging
  • I like the 3rd nose sheet since it is heavy moisturized for post-application process. 
Nay! ()

  • Doesn’t have English translation in it. I tried putting it based on how much time it was indicated on the package.
  • It’s a 3-step process making application really long.  
Price: P80.00 each
Bought from: Althea Ph
Size: 7g.

It is something new and I liked using new products to discover if they will be effective for me. However, I felt that the process was really long and it took so much of my time. The pull-off sheet isn't as effective as other nose sheets I tried. I encountered so many nose sheets and one after another is effective. This just doesn't pull off anything. The whole kit would be great for me if the 2nd sheet is effective in pulling whiteheads and blackheads.

Overall, I felt great in trying the product but to be honest, I won't repeat using it. Aside from it took much of my time, I didn't feel it's effectiveness in targeting my skin care concern.
