CURE Natural Aqua Gel Review

Hello! Have you heard about Sample Room? If you are a blogger or someone who loves trying out what’s new, I’m pretty sure you know what Sample Room is. But for those who don’t, read this…
So yes, basically you can get samples for free, but be fast because stocks always run out fast. :) Sample Room lets you TRY before you BUY. :D
This is my first time to try Sample Room and this is the first product that I got. I’m one of those lucky people who got the chance to avail the sample of this talk of the town exfoliating gel from Japan: CURE1 bottle sold every 12 seconds in Japan!~ Isn’t that amazing?!
What is Cure?
Its made up of 90% water! Very gentle but can exfoliate those dirty dead skin! That makes it more aaamazing!!^^
Sample Room provided 5 sachets for us to try. Thank you Sample Room! :)
I transfer its contents to a small cream jar. I usually always transfer samples in a small jar like this, I even use contact lenses case sometimes. :))
How to use? The pictures pretty tell us how. :)
Now let’s try it? 
1st use. I tried it on my hands. Can you see the difference? Maybe not because its the first use, but I tell you its really cool to see those white particles… Want a closer view? here.
Eeewww? But I just want to show the white particles to you -_-
Then on my fingers/cuticle, look at the before picture (red box) it looks tired and old, but look at the after (blue box) it looks clean, fresh looking (baby skin?).~haha.
(Oh yes, I have short chubby fingers, can you recommend me some exercise to make them slimmer? O_O)
AFTER 3 days
I used Cure again for the 2nd time. It makes my skin pretty nice and young looking (oh I'm not yet old!^^)
And of course I also tried it on my face. I’m quite shy to show you but okay, here.
Don’t my face look brighter after using Cure? Well if you don’t see the difference, try it! My face feels cleaner, softer and brighter after using Cure gel :) You can actually see those white particles come off (dead skin and dirt) after you massage Cure.
What I like:
-Its a gentle exfoliator
-It removes dead skin and dirt
-Its preservative, coloring, mineral oil and artificial fragrance free
- You can use it on your face, neck, elbows, knees, cuticles, almost all over your body!
-It enhances moisturizer absorption by removing dead skin cells on your skin surface.
-It makes my skin cleaner, softer and brighter!
- I didn't have any allergic reactions
-One bottle lasts up to 4 months (use it twice a week only)
-Its locally available! Visit Beauty Bar stores near your place!
I wish:
-It comes in smaller bottles too so that I don’t have to shell out P1,500 (250 grams) at once. :))
Cure is exclusively available in Beauty Bar and exclusively imported and distributed by Beautybox Corp.
That’s it! I’ll continue using this and I’ll update you guys if it will solve some of my skin problems and if it will make my skin smoother. Thanks for reading! :)

I see the Beautiful in YOU!

You! Yes you! Whoever is reading this post, you are beautiful! Everyone is unique and beautiful in their own ways. Yes, we may say or even wish we look like someone we idolize or look up to, like for example: those pretty Kpop idols or the Victoria’s secret angels. Its okay to admire and adore others, but still, we should appreciate what we’ve got and remind ourselves that we are beautiful too. :)
photo from BDJ fb. :)
So, BDJ included stickers to our boxes to inspire women and spread the word. I personally like to share it with others, if I just have lots of stickers I would give it to anyone I’ll see. :)) So for the month of April, the stickers included say “I SEE THE BEAUTIFUL IN YOU”. There are 5 tasks for us and I think its fun and easy. :)
1. Stick it on an object you see everyday to serve as a daily reminder.
“Mirror! Mirror on the wall!” I chose to stick it on the mirror! Don’t we all look in the mirror every single day? So there, every time I’ll look and face the mirror, this will remind me that I’m beautiful. ~~lol.hihi.now I sound so narcissistic :))
2. Pass it to someone you always see everyday.
Sure I see my mom too everyday, but I gave it to my sister instead. (Don’t worry, we’ll gonna stick it around the house where everyone can see it, share share! :)) )
3. Give it to someone you know who is beautiful inside out.
She is one of my closest friends whom I met during college. She’s kind, smart, cheerful and fun to be with. :P
(And if you are reading this my friend, I’m sure you are smiling/ laughing now. ~hahaha :)) )
4. Stick it on an area where a stranger can see it.
Sssshhhhhh… I placed it inside a fitting room so that anyone who’ll fit some dress or whatever, they could read this, as if someone’s telling them that they are beautiful. Vandalism? NO! Not really. But please don’t tell anyone that I’m the one who did it! O_O haha. By the way, the color of this top is cute right?
5. Get creative and figure out the best way to pass on this message.
What a better way to share this to other people, friends or even strangers? Social networking sites! (Instagram, FB, Twitter and Tumblr!) 

That’s it! Have you watched Dove’s real beauty sketches video? You are more beautiful than you think :) 

Thanks BDJ team for these kind and inspiring words for us to pass on to all the beautiful ladies! :)

Bifesta Cleansing Lotion Review

What do you use to remove your makeup? It is important that we also clean and take care of our skin after a long day wearing makeup. Instead of the usual cleanse+tone+moisturize, I add double cleansing too. I use a cleansing milk and an eye and lip oil makeup remover first before washing my face. Let me share with you a product from Japan, Bifesta Cleansing Lotion. :)
Photos above are from Bifesta Facebook.
This sample size is included on April BDJ Box that I got. I’m happy that I got a chance to try this product. Its Age Care, I don’t know if its really for me but I still used it anyway. :))
Oops, its really full at first but the first photo that I took with my sister’s phone is dark, so I decided to take another photo again using mine, I already used this 3x.
“Conveniently remove your makeup with the power of oil cleansing minus the oily feeling! Bifesta Cleansing Lotion is Japan’s first ever water based makeup remover that not only cleanses, but nourishes deep down the skin. Use this to cleanse your face after a long day of wearing makeup.”
I’m now trying this on the back of my hand. From left to right: Clinique Lasting Lipstick, Revlon lipstick, Clinique Eyeshadow, Revlon Foundation, Maybelline waterproof mascara and Maybelline waterproof eyeliner.
After 1 wipe…
After 3 more wipes…
Let me soak it for a minute…
Still there? O_O
Rub Rub Rub! Okay, its clean now, finally!!! What a tough waterproof products! :))
What I like:
-It doesn’t have a strong smell
-Its gentle and it didn’t irritate my skin
-It removes makeup such as foundations, eye shadows and lipsticks
-Its not messy to use, I mean just put some on the cotton just like a toner. :)) So simple, perfect for those nights when I feel so lazy or sleepy to remove my makeup.
-You can actually skip washing your face and go with moisturizing or go to bed and sleep! :)) Or rinse with water.  (But I still like to use facial foams, then tone and moisturize afterwards, maybe I’m just used to it and it became a habit).
-Its available locally, you can see it in leading department stores and Watsons.
What I don’t:
-Difficult to remove the waterproof makeup like the eyeliner and mascara (Well I think because its not oil-based after all)
-I pour a lot of it on the cotton pads just to clean my whole face. Its just sad that I have to use a lot to remove all my makeup, considering I don’t really wear a heavy makeup at all. 
~~~Well I think for the price P419, its a good makeup remover, it works and do its job in removing regular makeup. It offers 4 different variants for you to chose from depending on your skin needs. I think I’ll just keep this little baby and bring it when I go for an overnight or travel, the size is perfect! :) So how about you? Have you tried this? :)

Clinique Chubby Stick Mighty Mimosa Review

Hello! How are you? Hope you’re having a great summer! :) I’m back with a review. I hope I can post more reviews on the following days. *crossingmyfingers. All the photos are on my drafts folder waiting for me to put words and publish them. :( Anyway, here is my review about my first Clinique chubby stick. This is a gift from my aunt, so I’m not really the one who chose the shade but I’m glad that this is pretty good.
The original chubby stick~~
“Super-nourishing balm loaded with mango and shea butters. Just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth. Sixteen natural-looking lip tints in all, each with a subtle sheen.”
Crayon like shape and tip.
As you can see, the color is very sheer. I think all the chubby sticks just have a hint of color because its more of a lip balm.
The color looks very natural right? 
For me, sad to say but its not moisturizing enough for my dry lips. (Okay I have a serious problem with dry lips remember? So if you have a normal lips, I think this will work for you and you’ll love it). I use another lip balm before applying this. What I like? Its not sticky, and it doesn’t have a weird smell. It doesn’t look too glossy or matte. I like its color, I can use it everyday as it looks very natural. But for the lasting power, its so-so.
Final words for this lip balm? Its nice to try.^^ But I wouldn’t shell out P920 for a sheer colored balm that’s not moisturizing enough FOR ME. But maybe I’ll go for the new siblings of this. Continue reading! :P
Want to have a stronger and more intense color that last? Don’t worry, Clinique now have the Chubby Stick Intense! I want the Plushest Punch and Mightiest Maraschino!! (Yes these chubby sticks intense babies are on my wish list now!)
“Tempt lips with the new Chubby Sticks Intense’s soft cushion of colour that’s not quite sheer, not quite opaque-just the perfect happy medium. Available for Php920 at all Clinique counters!” -Clinique FB
Wait for my next reviews! Sorry if I doesn't post often.~~

Unboxing April 2013 BDJ (Belle De Jour) Box!

How is your summer going? Its very hot now here in the Philippines (are we inside the oven?!). Its the perfect time to go to the beach and have a vacation!
I sooo love the view! :) No filter, taken from my iphone. Just pure beauty.
Our family just came back last Monday from our summer vacation trip in Ilocos (will share more photos next time) and when we got home, a box is waiting for me. My first BDJ Box :)
I won an APRIL box! I’ve never subscribed in any beauty boxes though I know there are quite a number of boxes already here in our country. So in short this is my first time getting one, and I felt so lucky when they announced the winners because its also my birthday, its like a surprise present :)
*oh sorry if I used a black background, I should have used a colorful/ light colored one (summer theme?^^) and I just used a new photo editor, still practicing.
The box is small but heavy! You know you got loads of products inside.
What’s inside?
April box really has a mix of stuffs, and 5 of them are in full size! I think I’ll be using the mist to freshen up, my Innisfree mist is already running out. The whitening products are just right for me now, I got a bit dark (and I think I even got a mild sun burn O_O) so let’s see how it works.  I already registered to their website http://bdjbox.com/ . For only P480/ month, you will get your own box that contains 5-6 (or more!) beauty products from premium brands handpicked for you! You’ll get to try the latest beauty products and have samples. It saves you money as you can try it first before buying a full size (and you get more than what you paid for) I’m now thinking of subscribing, I think its worth it. :) Hurry up as the boxes gets sold out very quick! MAY BOX is already Sold Out! The only chance for me now is to join their challenge~ haha, anyway I think its fun and interesting so I’ll do it!
Wait for my reviews! :) I know I have pending reviews and posts on my drafts, I’m slow but I’m trying my best to post at least every week. :))
Thank you BDJ team and more power to you! :)
