Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Cleansing Cream Review

I’ve been switching to different cleansers mainly for this blog and because of boredom. There are still a lot of samples in my waiting list which made me cringe sometimes.

The cream is not thick or very watery. It is light, rich and very easy to spread. It feels mild and it doesn’t lather. It has a seal, which is something just appropriate for a product with natural ingredients. The sample only last for 1 week and few days and perhaps because it’s a cream type cleanser.

The coolness it leaves in the skin lasts for more than a minute. It’s the only beauty product I’ve tried that has a long lasting coolness. The scent is very calming and feels therapeutic to me. The experience is nearly similar with how liniments feel in the skin.

I am so drawn in this refreshing experience that my interest soared. Hopefully, I would be able to try all their other products someday. Who knows I might be sticking with their products eventually.

Iwhite Aqua Moisturizing Cream (Review)

I always have a stock of Iwhite peeling masks (both the nose and face mask). It didn't cross my mind to use their moisturizer though due to my oily face. Some products are not just meant for me. To still insist is very silly. The thing is, I missed the part of it's being “water-based”. It learned and finally took notice of it through other blog post.

I still use moisturizer sparingly. It's not for everyday routine. I wait for my facial skin to show signs that it needed moisturization. The frequent changes of climate in this country changes the condition and needs of my skin too. I skip using this with cleansers that makes the face feel already moisturized but not for cleansers that gives squeaky clean and dry skin after.

Sample Room Products Received #13

I was waiting for the delivery and arrival of this products since this always been the easiest to blog. Unfortunately, it was not the case this time. After 2 despondent weeks, those previous ideas that should have been included in this post has slipped my mind.

And then there was this guy friend who asked for any blog updates. Seriously? A guy reading girly stuff? Books are not counted though. Why is that the majority of the guys I knew are not interested with books and as if they're allergic of it? Even if my other guy best friend started reading Dan Brown's books, I can't still coerce him to read books that is for him “baduy” and “nakakabawas ng pagkalalake”.

Going back, it's really getting harder to think of what to say. There's this researching, reading articles, and polishing. I also want that a part of me reflected on those written words. There's also the pressure of catching the frequency of posts versus the quality. But I feel incomplete in the idea of abandoning this as there's something in this blog that give me a supplementary purpose.

But still there's ecstasy from stocking new products and to trying them later on...

Celeteque Anti-Stretch Mark Cream | Review

Celeteque Cream Tube

In old books and in televisions, they used to tell that there's no other way to remove stretch mark unless it's surgery. It gave me the impression that there's no other option and that the rest of my life will be spent with stretch marks. I learned about this marks during my high school days when my always frank sister pointed it out when she saw it.

It was an existing old stretchmarks that is definitely not caused by pregnancy. I don't remember scratching those areas. With the lack of knowledge before, I assumed it was the culprit.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Book Review)

This book has been mentioned in different reading materials I encountered before. Finally I decided to read it and gave it the attention I withhold before. Why not when I consider myself as a wallflower in the past and it was even my friendster name. It was a codename that a few who cared knew.


This book is different from what I have in mind before. Instead of a female character, it was actually like a diary of a guy in a letter form. I initially thought it was a collection of advantages of being single. It shows that Charlie, the main character, is not the worst kind of wallflower at all. He’s actually lucky and has plenty of people who love him yet he feels lonely in some way.

It’s very easy to relate with especially that the time frame was during his freshman year. Being a first year student is such an unforgettable moment. It’s the first step towards a lot of changes and exposures while we leave the memories of our childhood years behind. It makes me remember the song of Taylor Swift, the “Fifteen”.

Dear Alex Break na kami Paano? (Book Review)

This book is mostly for those who are in a bad relationship (even though you don’t realize it) and those who are planning to move out. It’s good for NBS (No Boyfriend Since Birth), for those single in status yet haven’t learned the wisdom of breaking up and for those who are in need ideas to cope up from a failed relationship.

Book Title: Dear Alex, Break na kami. Paano?! Love, Catherine
Author: Alex Gonzaga

I was quite fond of Alex when she was not yet a Kapamilya actress. With that and her quote above, it sparked my interest. A celebrity writer? That’s something new.

The Fault in Our Stars (Movie Review)

The Fault in Our Stars with review
From Wikipedia

It was bf who wants us to watch the film after being advertised in local televisions. The book cover may look very cute but that doesn’t mean I am enticed to watch it. I have its e-book version owing to some mild curiosity (just to know what the buzz is all about) but the idea of prior reading was abandoned because it felt like it was more special when both of us is oblivious to spoiling details.

It was weird not to be moved when the majority who watched this got tears and was touched. Did I gotten cold? I feel like a total alien due to contrasting impression. Just like the movie “If I Stay”, this can’t stand alone without the book. It’s only through subtitle that I was able to catch up, but the subtitle was still quick and unnatural. It’s hard to absorb or I‘m really that slow.
