Blotting Sheet Review: Kleenex Facial Oil Blotter

Blotting Sheet Review: Kleenex Facial Oil Blotter

I used to ignore Kleenex blotting sheet despite of its being highly accessible. I had a mistake of assuming it resembles the thickness of onion paper. The reviews on internet about Kleenex blotting sheet are mostly good. And since my Gatsby blotting sheet has all used up, it won't hurt to try.

Unwrapping the plastic reveals the prettiest blotting sheet I have ever seen. Such an elegant box is hiding in its less eye-catching plastic cover.

Nichido Matte Lipstick Pink Lush Review

Nichido Matte Lipstick Pink Lush Review

The pink lush is a very attractive shade. Little did I know that this isn't the lipstick for me. Even though some say I’m fair, I am warm toned. Maybe that's the reason why I don't believe when they say “Ang puti mo...” since it only gets true when I am under the sunlight. But when indoors, that glowing and radiant skin ends.

This could be the manufacturing date. I really prefer lipstick that indicates their ingredients.

Blog update... This week.

Sorry for unorganized frequency of my post recently. I thought I could make a blog post daily but I just can’t make it over night. If the reason is not being totally distracted I am just sleeping too early. I don’t know what to say too. It seems I cannot also find the right topic for worth remembering life events have been so scarce. I cannot even watch a movie and finish the book I’m currently reading. Woah, I thought this month would have the highest number of blog post, but it appeared I’m wrong. Epic :D

So what made me busy? Most of my time was spent sleeping and probably dreaming. I got set of nightmares recently; even people I don’t want to remember appears in my dream. The other I spent reading information about my skin type and thinking what product would suit me.

Yesterday I watched The Love from the Star in GMA. Perhaps it’s the last week of its airing because the comet has already arrived. It’s the TV series boyfie and I always do watch and talk about. Unfortunately, he can’t watch it anymore due to his new hectic schedule. This is one of the most intense portions of the series that made me cry. I was in the verge of crying but the several ‘I might cry’ turned into mild tears. That episode moved me. (Recalling it is silly, I only became aware of it due to the powdery taste of the tears from the loose powder I put on my face instead of being salty)

My 2nd Sample Room Haul Experience

My 2nd Sample Room Haul Experience

Did you just see that? I save P142.20 if I would buy those products in the market. But do I really need them? I only want the lotion, because I don’t leave our house without applying any lotion on my skin. If I bought the 200ml Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion alone, I still saved around P60. But in my case, for sure I will only buy 100ml. :) (Because I tend to get bored of using same lotion)

But since I would be paying P130 for shipping fee and has only consumed 50pts out of 100pts, why not include another free sample? And so I included Hygienix Anti-Bacterial Hand Spray and OraCare Cool Mouthrinse.

Cd-r King 4 Port USB Hub

Cd-r King 4 Port USB Hub

With 3 Ports I still do sacrifice some of my devices, then I saw my Aunt’s Toshiba laptop that only has 2 USB port and I can’t imagine what I’d be feeling for myself if that’s mine. Older laptops have 2 USB ports so if you are planning to buy a laptop, make sure it has 3 USB ports. I do multitask, I use broadband kits, attach external keyboard and mouse. That would give my flash drive no more room.

Avon Skin so Soft Body Lotion with Argan Oil Review

Avon Skin so Soft Body Lotion with Argan Review

“Silky moisture”
“Ultra moisturizing body lotion”

I’m not a fan of Avon lotion but they have some products I love to use. When I think about of Avon, it reminds me of brassiere, deodorants, lovely umbrellas, their magazines and those old sweet tasting lip balms before. The pink strawberry one. :)

This lotion was given to me by mom, which was also just given to her. The tiny +argan word was labeled in the front bottom of the bottle. This essential oil not very familiar to me. I only used it as my spare lotion in work.

When I am about to Join this Samsung Giveaway...

I am about to join this pink Samsung NxMini Camera giveaway from this site and even made a selfie that meets the requirement. A picture that can either have “Low lighting, bad angle, pixelated shots, and anything that shows why you need to get your hands on the Nxmini.”

"Who wouldn't want a free samsung camera for a hassle free selfie photos with just an easy way to have an entry?" -Taken from my draft. I created a draft prior to this. I don't have a smart phone and how much more if its about "instagram". I need to install it in a phone and create an account. Silly Probinsiyana...

So here is another from my draft:
What I will show you is a reality from my 8 years old Nikon digicam. The shots is vulnerable to blurriness due to shaky hands and the flash can remind and take you back to that old intense and blinding light used in the past photography. This is my first camera that has been loyal to me up to now. In fact, almost all of my pictures here are taken from this cam. The truth is, I usually wait when the sun is up to take my blog photos and I always do it outdoors. Though daylight can be an effective source of light but it is not predictable nor controllable to my liking. How dedicated I am to be patient like that.

The following photos are taken in a normal room lighting. I usually have a blurry picture and I can't and I don't use my flash if I still care for my eyes. This is honestly the main reason why I did stop taking selfies when I was once addicted to it.

KW089-1555 Unisilver Watch Review

Stainless steel back
Water resistant
Japan movement
1 year warranty

I've mention this watch here. It was 50% off and yet it was at the far end display, hidden like it doesn’t want to be sold. The style reminds me of old school and the photographic effect that Instagram is famous of.

The strap of my watch is like a silicon if it's not a plastic. A bad thing about buying a very cheap plastic watch is that it tends to get smelly. The stink might have come from the substandard material used. I wonder why those plastic watch came a trend when for me it's harder to clean and looks non-environmental friendly. It might even have a lead on it.

It’s a cheap and with quality watch.

The strap is nice.

Just Got my Unisilver watch, Nivea Sale, RRJ Sale

Nivea Sale: 50% off
I stumble into a blog where I found out about the recent 50% off promo of Nivea. If only I went to the supermarket, I could have known about the promo too. Just yesterday I went there and still saw the remnants of the banners of the said promo. I am interested to try their hand cream but I didn't find any. Maybe I could have bought their milk lotion too.

RRJ Sale: One buy take one in Jeans, 50% off for blouses in CSI
I saw it last Friday. I almost bought me a pink blouse. Unfortunately, the fitting room is dark since there's no light. I tried fitting it but can't figure out if it does look good. Other than that, I always find their blouses unfit to me. It's either vertically long, the shoulder is too short or my size is in the middle or none at all. For jeans, I don't like skinny type. I almost bought a buy 1 take 1 shorts too if there's a gray one that fits me. I like a light brown and gray short. In the end, the idea of having a tight budget won over the lure of the sale.

Pond's Complete Solution Acne Clear Review

Pond's Complete Solution Acne Clear Review

I just finished washing my face with this when my sister said to me, “What happened to your face?” I thought my face is reddish but instead it was ghostly white. I wonder why every time I use Ponds, even their other variants, it felt like my face is super white. As if I was soaked in vinegar. How lovely it is to have a radiant and youthful face instead of just bright.

Venus & Mars Naturals Pure Fully Refined Emu Oil Sample Review

Venus & Mars Naturals Pure Fully Refined Emu Oil Sample Review

Price: P475 (30ml)

Placenta, charcoal, papaya, oatmeal, sulfur, kojic acid, gluthathione, etc. Remember those days? Did you even try any of them? And now here comes the miracle oil, the Emu oil. Or maybe I'm just late to know.

This is one my first loot with Sample Room. If you didn't know what Sample Room is, I have a post that tells my first experience there. The small size of sample can be quite unsatisfying but is considerable if you think about the expensiveness of the full size and the gathering process of the emu oil.

Here is my review in Sample Room:
I was bit disheartened that the sample is not large but still greatly surprised with its effect. I got small patches of bruise in my legs and it did lighten it in a very short span of time. It’s miracle oil indeed. It even works with fresh bites and helps lighten blemishes. It’s a multipurpose product and I want to have a full size of it.
Emu Oil Sample Review bottle

How Emu oil works?
The natural oil from our body protects our skin and makes it soft, smooth and well-hydrated. The fatty acids found in Emu oil are somehow similar to the natural oil our body produced. With the use of Emu oil, it helps in protecting, repairing and restoring our skin in a sort of natural way.

There are too many believed benefits of Emu oil. It helps in pain reduction, relief of irritation, reducing redness (anti-inflammation) and of moisturizing the skin. It is said to treat several skin illnesses and is anti-aging. Others I don't mention here.

Olive Hand Cream Naturals by Watsons Review

Certified Organic Olive Oil
Natural Grape Seed Oil
Shea Butter
Vitamin E
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract
Sun Flower Seed Oil

Olive Hand Cream Naturals by Watsons Review

In woman's everyday dealings, part of it has our hand's exposure. Pretty good looking hands will leave an impression, give rise to admiration and perhaps respect, or will somehow reveal our personality and how we’re taking care of ourselves. It is one of the parts of the body that usually undergoes criticism. Other people does look at our hands.

A hand cream is a necessity and part of the personal hygiene. Unfortunately, I am endowed with a very sensitive skin. It dries quickly and looks ugly especially in cold temperatures. To address the issue, I started using different hand moisturizer and gloves whenever I wash clothes or the likes.

Safeguard Derma Sense for Acne Prone Skin Review

Safeguard Derma Sense for Acne Prone Skin Review

-Dermatologically Tested
-Face & Body Bar (Suitable for Daily Use)

Isn't it nice if this product was already made in the past? I’m always been a Safeguard user and I always find my way back even if I try another brands of soap. Safeguard is our regular bar soap since it is very well advertised even before. It’s been there ever since.

Ingredients of Safeguard

After I saw the ingredients, I’m quite discouraged. The main active ingredient is Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract. There’s nothing grand or spectacular about it. But it is dermatologist tested and Safeguard has made its reputation for its long life in the industry. Kumbaga subok na.

Even then, some of my friends just use a plain safeguard in their face and viola! They have a clean pimple-free face. Some use eskinol afterwards. But this alone doesn’t work for me. I still have to find the right product that will work for my face.

Safeguard Eucalyptus oil health benefits

The color of the bar is green. It doesn’t smell eucalyptus at all and it reminds me of those soaps that have deodorizing effect. The smell is quite a turn off. There is a same safe guard bar that smells like this, I’m not sure if it’s the blue or the green one. Luckily, I’ve found a smaller box to try, there is another bar for sensitive skin and I wonder what's the color and smell of it.

Make Your Own Home Made Beauty Recipes

I am smitten into anything organic and natural. I always wanted to try the old ways. You can experiment without getting afraid of over indulging into different harsh chemicals. But it is also a hard task finding the right recipe and matching it to the type of skin we have.

Cleopatra has her own beauty secrets, how else could she seduce Mark? Unfortunately, the recipe didn’t survive to reach our time. And before the dawn of modern medicines, home remedies are used as a treatment or cure. Their beauty products came from plants and herbs that sometimes can be found in their own backyards. It is in natural form unlike the products that we use now that has preservative like paraben. How else could those products reach its 2-3 years of shelf life if it doesn’t have preservatives?

We have to lessen getting acquainted into chemicals and those chemicals used to gather them and be kind to Mother Earth once again.
