My hard earned money was worth it in BellaVita. This house and lot is a great investment that can be pass on to my children and my grandchildren.

Review: Leaders Summer Skin Savers Insolution Masks

Masks has been staple in my beauty routine. I may skipped serums, essences, lotions but not a mask. I don't know, I feel that my routine is just not complete without it. 

Recently, I received these masks from Leaders when they released their newest bio cellulose mask sheets. The goal of these is to achieve a healthy sun-kissed skin. 

The first one is the Juicy Pina Colada Bright Mask. It is a coconut fermented gel sheet with pineapple extract and coconut water bright mask makes skin look clear and moisturized and provides vital care. The ingredients are Ananas Sativus Pineapple Extract which is rich in Vitamins A, B, C that brightens skin. And there's Cocos Nucifera Water which not only moisturizes but also calms and soothes the skin with its cooling effect.  


Next is the Juicy Mojito Clearing Mask which is a coconut fermented gel sheet with lime peel extract and peppermint leaf extract which makes skin look smooth and tightens pore. The ingredient Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Peel Extract is rich in antioxidants that rids dead skin cells and keeps skin healthy. While Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Lead Extract contains menthol compound that soothes sensitive skin. It also opens pores and helps removing excess sebum and moisturizes skin. 


Another one is the Coconut Water Gel Volume and Glow Mask which is a coconut fermented gel sheet with coconut water and Phytosqualene that provides intense nourishment to damaged skin. The 30% Coconut Water gives essential minerals that naturally moisturizes the skin and Phytosqualene fights off skin-damaging free radicals that contributes to the signs of aging. It balances oil production, provides moisture that keep the skin clear and healthy. 


Lastly, the Coconut Water Gel AC & Pore Care Mask is a coconut fermented gel sheet with coconut water, witch hazel water and eucalyptus globulus leaf extract moisturizes and soothes sensitive skin. The 30% Coconut Water gives essential minerals that naturally moisturizes the skin and Witch Hazel and Eucalyptus Leaf Extract reduces skin inflammation, soothes skin and gives astringent effect. 


I like the whole experience I had with these mask sheets. It is not my first to try bio cellulose mask sheets. I've had my share of using those in the past but I can say that these are of high quality. I feel special using it because of it's double protective film. I'll jot down all the things I liked on these masks. 

Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Got it for FREE!
  • Adherence of sheet on skin is pretty great. Can last even when I am standing or sitting. 
  • Elasticity is strong. Doesn't tear easily. 
  • There's a cooling effect. 
  • There's abundant nourishment on these masks such as Vit. C, E, minerals and organic acids. 
  • Provides excellent moisture. 

Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • I think it's a little pricey but given the benefits you'll get, I think it's worth the amount. 

Price: Ranges from P189 - P209
Bought from: CNA (Got it for FREE!)
Size: 250 g.

It's difficult to find a favorite among the four because everything was great in their own thing but if I am going to choose one, it would be the Juicy Mojito Clearing Mask. I am more after the effect than the scent. I may dislike its scent but I felt great after using it. I noticed my skin looked smooth and it tightened my pores because my makeup looked great the next day after using it. As for the two coconut gel masks, I like the cooling sensation it gave but the coconut scent really bothered me. 

Wanna get more of these soon! I hope they go on sale! Hihi. You? What's your fave variant? 

Review: Gluta-C with Kojic Plus Shower Salt Scrub

My pregnancy has a lot of advantages and disadvantages for me. Apart from getting a very cute ball of baby, my struggle was getting really bad and dull skin during the whole pregnancy. I think I only had the pregnancy glow on my face but my body didn't had it. Good thing I was able to rummaged my vanity/beauty cabinet and found this hidden gem underneath. 

During the whole time I was pregnant, I felt so bad. I felt dirty, dull and down. I think every pregnancy is really different. I felt so heavy that time that I easily get tired which makes me so lazy on taking care of myself. I cut shower in minutes and most of the time skipped skin care and beauty stuff. I think most moms can relate to me especially those who experienced the same thing like I did. 

So after giving birth, I had to get back on track. I felt the need to bring back the glow of my skin and I know I have to take care of it again to achieve the youthful glow I was eyeing. I know that I needed to use a body scrub to make my body clean and bright again.

PACKAGING - It's an orange container in a screw cap jar which had an inner plastic lid that you can dispose after. 


SCENT - This has great scent just like most kojic soaps do. I like it even when I was pregnant and very sensitive to different odors. However, I used this post-pregnancy. I only opened it when I was on my last trimester but declined using it for lazy reasons. 

PRICE - Got it from Sample Room and only paid for shipping. If you wish to get it, it retails for P164.75 in leading supermarkets nationwide. 

TEXTURE - It has fine to medium granules which exfoliates the skin but isn't abrasive. It cleanses the skin gently which feels so good afterwards and I don't feel guilty doing it on my skin. 

EFFECT - This cleanses my body really well. It removes all dead skin cells and deeply exfoliates my body. I liked how clean and smooth my body feel after use without the drying feel. It claims to whitens the skin but for me, it just gives the brightening glow but doesn't really whitened it. I've been using it twice to thrice a week but didn't noticed any lightening effect. 

Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Got it for FREE!
  • Good scent. 
  • Cleanses my skin really well. 
  • Leaves skin feeling smooth and clean. 
  • No drying effect even after exfoliating the skin.

Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • I think because it's summer time that the granules and the liquid part kind of separated inside the tub. I had to mixed it altogether to apply it easily. 
  • The tub is only half full
  • No whitening effect as it claims it have

Price: P164.75
Bought from: Sample Room (Got it for FREE!)
Size: 250 g.

There's a few content left and I think it's only good for 1-2 more use. I like it and would love to repurchase again soon. I think it's affordable and is effective in exfoliating the skin without making it dry. I hope that it has more content though because it is just half full when I started using it. It only lasted me a few times. 

Overall, I would recommend this if you want a scrub that's affordable and does what it claims. However, it doesn't have the whitening effect on me. It may have a different effect for you though. Always remember that what works for me might not work for you.

AMW Workshop Series IX

It's been more than two months since I last attended a beauty workshop. It was #AMW Workshop Series IX. I attended last years' workshop by Miss Nikki and because I love her and trust her beauty tips and advices, I know I can't missed out this year as well. 

Miss Nikki or simply known as @askmewhats on IG is one of the beauty guru I look up to and respect because of her genuine and quirky personality. She's one of the beauty bloggers who has been my inspiration to start my beauty blog. Ever since I discovered she's having workshops, I then make it a point to attend those events.

This year's #AMWWorkshopSeries9 is entitled "Get Your Glow On" which was held last March 23, '19 at Space1851 Co-Working Hub. Since bringing myself with my big belly (7months preggy) would be difficult, my husband accompanied me because he supports my beauty events all the way!

The new venue was great because it was spacious than before and there's unlimited coffee (very Miss Nikki). Snacks were also served for the event goers.

Since I arrived early, I saw Mr AMW supporting Miss Nikki all the way by shooting Miss Nikki's live updates. Woah! They are always #relationshipgoals.

Also, there's a free mani session courtesy of Girl Stuff. The brand being safe because it's free from harmful chemicals may be used by pregnant women and kids.

According to Miss Nikki, the goal of the workshop is making sure that we have glowing skin from head to toe, hence the workshop title.

She shared that in Chinese medicine, wellness starts from down going up. That's why she introduced products from Soothies like its foot scrub and foot spray. Paying attention to our feet can help a lot because our feet absorbs all the tiredness from all the walking we are doing all day.

Working our way up, we can also opt for peeling body scrub and  lotion if we want to achieve whiter skin, like some instant whitening products from Cathy Doll.

So as Miss Nikki targets each area, she shared more tips on the face like:

  • For bubble product like a cleansing foam, if theres no bubbles, it means you have an oily face or oily hair. Bubble helps to decrease the oil in our face.
  • Apply bubble cleanser first then exfoliating scrub. Scrub from center going up. 

More tips on makeup application.

  • Green corrector is for red pimple
  • Lavender corrector is for sallow skin
  • Orange corrector is for dark areas
  • First part to apply is where you think the most dark part of the face
  • Use hand as palette to warm the product so it will adjust with your body temperature
  • Apply everything with small strokes
  • When you apply product on your face, use two fingers
  • Use fingers especially on color correct products
  • For skincare use upward stroke
  • For makeup application, use downward stroke. Application should be with the growth of your facial hair
  • For big pores use primer
  • Sleeping pack acts as a barrier
  • Two products on one face is okay
  • One side of the brush is for application, the other clean part is for blending
  • For concealer, use brush. Especially if it's cream because fingerprints can be seen
  • Dub down, then dubbing motion
  • Closer finger on the brush, gives more pressure. Far finger, less pressure
  • When applying eyeshadow, never go beyond the bone felt near the eyes
  • Concealer creases than foundation. Add powder then brush it in circles
  • Blot using brush in the afternoon, also in the neck. Don't use foundation sponge sIn the afternoon because it absorbs the sweat

That's a whole lot of tips and many moooree!!! Plus a lot of gifts from sponsors too! 

I'm so grateful to be part of this experience. It was always a pleasure to be part of Miss Nikki's makeup tutorials because I always learn a lot. As early as now, I'm hoping to be part of her 10th-year workshop.

Kudos to your anniversary Miss Nikki and more years and workshops to come! Lovelots 💗
