Review: Benton Tea Tree Mist

I am always grateful whenever I am picked in review events or whenever I got lucky in a giveaway. This time, I got the chance to review one of Benton's newest launch, their Benton Tea Tree Mist. I am really a sucker for mists so this is great because I am also almost running low on my mist stash. I read good reviews on this so let's see what are my honest thoughts on the product. 

What is it?!
Benton Tea Tree Mist is a mist that contains Tea Trea Leaf Water, Hyaluronic Acid and various botanical extracts that provide instant hydration while leaving skin refreshed and clear.  It is actually the new name from being Benton Honest Mist. It is the newest and improved version of the product. Same Formula, Larger Volume, Better Spray. 




PACKAGING - The product is in a clear and spray type bottle which releases the mist in a very crisp and fine form. 

SCENT - Unscented. I like that it was really unscented. I am actually expecting it to have like a tea tree scent but I was surprised not to smell anything at all. I kinda feel like having a bit of that scent is okay but unscented is equally okay for me. 

PRICE - The price wasn't indicated at Benton's website but there are shops like StyleKorean which price revolves around P900 for the regular price. Most of the time, it's always on sale so make sure to grab one whenever they have those promos.

EFFECT - First, I like that the bottle is easy to hold for a spritz. I am impressed by how it expels a fine mist. It didn't put too much pressure on my face and didn't feel heavy at all. There are some mists which gives off that big chunk of water in every spritz which didn't felt good. That feels like your face is being splashed with water. Benton really had a better spray on this.





Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Got it for FREE.
  • Easy to hold with one hand.
  • Travel-friendly sized but with a lot of content.
  • Has powerful ingredient in moisturizing and hydrating.
  • Excellent spray which emits fine mist 



Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • I am actually thinking what I dislike about this one but I just can't come up with any. Not much of a dislike but I think I'd like to see a miniature version of this. Like a tester perhaps.

Price: P990 @ StyleKorean
Bought from: Got it for FREE
Size: 80 ml.

Let me know in the comments below if you have tried it or planning to purchase one.

Also, let's have a healthy conversation if you also have mist in your skincare routine. What brand and how do you incorporate it. For me, I use it whenever I'm out at work or the weather was extra hot for that day or whenever I just feel like doing so. 

How about you?

Review: Maybelline Creamy Matte

I know these lippies were already released a long time ago but I only had the time to review them now. I had so many lippies and I don't want to just open new ones when I have so many pending to review. That's what happened to me, so for the longest time, I really hold back in using these. I only opened them this year and only had the time to review them now because you know, mom duty calls, as always. 

I got myself 6 of Maybelline's Creamy Matte. I originally wanted to have all nudes but I don't have much pink on my lipstick stash so I got one. 



I noticed that their nudes are the nudes I don't normally use. It looks good when swatched but some looked so different on my lips.



I randomly selected these shades from the counters because I wanted to try and review them but I didn't expected that it would take my review this long. Anyway, here are the swatches I got from that purchase. 

Daringly Nude
This shade is a mid tone taupe which has pink tones. It is patchy on my lips so I suggest you exfoliate before use or better put lip balm before.

Nude Nuance
This shade is a muted dark medium brown with slightly warm undertones. It's rich and creamy and glides easily on the lips. It has a soft velvety finish. 

Divine Wine
This is a bold and deep burgundy red which is great for parties. This can be classy but knowing my personality, I can't really pull it off. I only use this whenever I want to look strict in front of my students and to establish more of the angry-look feel.

Mesmerizing Magenta
This is a velvety pretty floral pink shade. Easy on the lips and is very pigmented. 

Nude Embrace
This one is caramel beige in color. It has the same formula with Daringly Nude which is kinda patchy for me but still blendable. Same thing. Need to put balm underneath. 

I have the clay crush which is a muted dusty peach brown  before but I gave it to my sister because she liked the shade and since I have a lot of lippies, I gave it away. 

Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Bought it on sale for P199.00.
  • Available in different shades.
  • Some shades glides easily on the lips. 
  • Maybelline lipsticks can be use for a long period of time. 

Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • There are shades that are patchy.
  • This is personal but I look pale on some.
Price: P199.00
Bought from: SM Department Store
Size: 4.2 g.

Overall, I like the Creamy Matte line of this brand. I also loved the Powder Matte line and will be posting a review also on that. Others may be patchy but it is still blendable and you can still work on it. I love the buttery-soft formula this line has. Above it all, I like that it's comfortable to wear. 

Have you tried this line? Any thoughts?

Review: Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Cleansing the face is not a tedious task, but it becomes one when you are so tired and would just want to sleep already after a long day's work. Just like what always happens to me. Every. Single. Day. 

Being a full time working mom, I'm making sure I'm still hands-on with my son and the household. I even make sure that I still do my advocacies. I also blog whenever I can and do reviews which I am most fond of. So to rescue me with the hectic schedule of life, I have Garnier's Micellar Cleansing Water to help me on my most "lazy" days. 




PACKAGING- It's in a pink packaging and the product inside is transparent. The label claims that this product doesn't have perfume and suitable for sensitive skin. It is tightly covered and the hole where the product is dispensed is just right so everything about the packaging is okay. 

SCENT - This has no scent at all. It's just like you are using water on the face. Not even a hint of an alcohol-smell. 

PRICE - Bought this at Robinsons Dept. Store for P149.00. Sometimes this go on sale online like on Shopee and Lazada so better score those deals.


EFFECT - This cleanses the face really well. It removes stubborn makeup and deep seated dirt on the face. Even my waterproof eyeliner got no power over this.

Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • No strong scent. 
  • Removes waterproof makeup easily. 
  • Great for sensitive skin. 
  • Doesn't leave the skin dry.
Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • None that I can think of. 

Price: P149.00
Bought from: Robinsons Department Store
Size: 125 ml.

Overall, I like this cleanser because this is my go-to product whenever I wanted to cleanse my face and I don't like to use oil. I often do double cleansing but in times that I feel soooo terribly tired, this is what I use. It feels great on my skin because it didn't make my skin dry.

Review: Half Moon Eyes in Pink Fruity

After a long time, I finally sat down and currently writing this review of another product. I do not know how long I have this with me which I got as a freebie after purchasing from Althea using my coupon points long time ago. I love that store so much because I usually get my Korean beauty stuff there. They have very affordable products and they even offer free shipping at a certain amount. All items are from Korea so the shipping is already a good deal! They also have amazing freebies and huge discounts.  What I miss on the site though were their Althea boxes. They discontinued it already and everyone's missing it.


So today, let's talk about this product called Half Moon Eyes in Pink Fruity. If you're following me on Instagram, you already know how I am obsessed with sheet masks. Despite that, I still try different kinds of masks. As I clean my skincare stash, I found this and opened it.




PACKAGING - I like the cutesy packaging of this product. The combination of yellow-green and pink hues is already an eye-catcher. This kind of product is also something that's new to me. A mask in a tiny container. At first I thought, it would be finished in one-time use but I happened to use it twice.

SCENT - I was waiting for that dragonfruit smell but nah, it didn't happened. But there's a slight perfume scent to it which is not too overpowering so it's okay.

PRICE  - Since this is a freebie, I got no idea how much this cost but upon checking on other reviews on this product, random answers were in between P100-200 or roughly $2-4. If that's the case, I think it's a little costly knowing that I will only use it once (if you have bigger face) or twice. No, don't start me with the pricing of my sheet masks hahaha. 😜

TEXTURE - Upon observation, there are those teeny, tiny particles inside the produce and I think it's like the dragonfruit seeds. But the texture is smooth. You will almost not feel the seeds.


EFFECT - I spent 20 minutes of it on my face and it's easily removed. There's a brightening effect after wash. No visible effect on the pores though. I think this product is all for brightening.



Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Got it for FREE! 
  • Gives a brightening effect.
  • Perfect for traveling. 

Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • Unhygienic because no included spatula. You may opt to use if you have one. 
  • If you will use it the 2nd or 3rd time, it turns slightly rock-hard so putting a little water would soften it up. I find this a little hassle though.
  • A little drying after use so follow-up with moisturizer.
  • Maybe this is just me, but I noticed whiteheads suddenly showed up. So not recommended to use before you go out. I made a wrong move. I actually used this one morning before I went out. Good thing my other skin care essentials saved me.

Price: FREE
Bought from: Althea
Size: 35 ml.

So if I will be brutally honest, I do not like it. I thought it will make my skin ready but it did not. It made the matter worse which is sad. Anyway, if it's for brightening, then I'll give it some plus points. 

Have you tried this particular product? Any thoughts to share?
