BB Cream and Korean Products Haul




1. Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream
Missha M perfect Cover BB Cream offers a novel skincare concept with BB Cream, which lightens skin tone by healing visible wrinkles and blemishes with excellent skin-cover ability, and prevent skin aging though effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties.
I got Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in natural beige. I bought the travel size 20 ml for 420php from ebay.ph.. It is certainly wonderful as YT gurus say. You may use it alone as a moisturizer, or foundation. Provides great coverage. My mom used it too and her freckles became less obvious. Also, it gives an instant whiter and clearer skin. It has a pleasant smell, too. Unlike other creams which have medicated scents. You can also easily squeeze out the product with a controlled amount because of the narrow and pointed nozzle.




2. Biuret Make up Solution Magic Tint Base
Biuret Magic Tint Base is an Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer. It is a hydrating tint keeping skin tone natural. The hydrating tint keeps skin soft without tightness with fine pearl powder making skin brightened and healthy. With smoothing up and skin tone up effect, the product makes skin soft and radiant. Also it is highly effective in brightening and caring face line with tint as a primer lasting make up long enough, evening out uneven skin tone making it clear.

I already tried it for a few days now and here's what I think about this product. It is easy to blend unto the skin. After application, it creates a sheer, silky and glowy effect with tiny specks of shimmer(meaning silky look and feel). It makes the skin soft and smooth. It is also a good base for foundation. After applying this tinted moisturizer, I applied my foundation next and it was easy to blend and spread the foundation over the face. I did not have my foundation cake up and rubbed out easily. It serves as a good face primer. With or without foundation, you can leave it alone. Though not much good coverage but it gives your skin a glowy finish. Havn't encountered any cons for this product yet, so far. It also has a pump nozzle which makes it easy to control the amount of product.




3. My freebies.
This are trial samples I suppose. They came in the package with the missha and biuret as free gifts. I havn't tried them yet but I will update soon as I use them.
The upper left sample is a Skin Food Acai Berry Mask. The one on the upper right is Skin Food Ancient Rice Cream. Lower left still, Skin food Gold Caviar Lifting Eye Serum. (I wonder what it's for. The back letterings are in Korean). And the last one on the lower right is Golden Ratio Etude HOuse Face Glam.


Hope you enjoyed this post.
See you again soon.

Sugars and Spices in the Life of a Mom


"I need to do something to feel good about myself." a friend of mine recently posted on her facebook.

Sel is also a hardworking mom like me. She has a good looking guy, takes care of her 5 month old baby boy and works at home online at the same time. I also have my 1 yr and 6 month old daughter to take care and I also work online at home. Sel is luckier her husband is with her who helps her look after her angel, whereas my hubby is working far away from home. We finished college together in the same university. Though we weren't that much close during our schooldays, we share similar emotional statuses and posts on FB. We sympathize with each other. We chat and exchange stories, feelings and happenings in our lives, as wives, as mothers.

People don't know the sacrifices and hardships of being hard working and multitasking moms.
Though they think we just sit, look after the baby and stay at home all day. Hell! These aren't easy baby!
We wake up early in the morning, prepare food for breakfast, feed the baby, clean the house, do the laundry,
catch up with time to get online and work. These aren't jokes. It is hard. It is stressful. It's just crazy.
We mothers don't mind the hardworks. We are super moms! But, the hard part is, after what you've done,
after all the efforts, hardships, people would not even notice nor appreciate, instead give bad comments!
If only they were in your position, they would try to understand. But no! They are just selfish, heartless
and unappreciative people who are close minded.

They don't know how it is like to sacrifice your beauty sleep to start the day. To skip breakfast cause
you had to feed baby and grandma, and rush to get to work because the boss is calling you.
To sacrifice manicure and parlors for laundry and eyeliner and eyeshadow with eye bags.
To trade nightclubs with children's park and friend gatherings with babysitting. To exchange dress and stilletoe
shopping with baby foods and diaper groceries.

Nah! Forget the beauty stuff and nightclubbing. My point is, we sacrifice a lot for our family, to take care of them
yet receive no credits, but instead bad comments! Don't we deserve some appreciations and rewards?

So Sel, yeah! We need to do something to feel good about ourselves. My advise? Once in a while, go get yourself
rewards. Go to the salon and get a make over. (or if you want, you can call me and I'll doll you up.
Your guy would worship you when he sees you. hehe) Go shopping and gift your selves with the latest fashion.
I feel great when people see and say "hey! I like your outfit." or "That make up looks good on you."
These words boosts my confidence and lifts me up. Somehow, despite the stressful life of a mom, I am appreciated.
I feel good and these compliments somehow overcomes the pressures. You can also invite your friends
over for a get together party. It's what I do. We catch up with each other. Or dine in a fancy restaurant and
munch on all your favourite foods. (Mine are Yellow Cab pizza, Pizza hut Carbonara, among others) Though
it's expensive, it's worth it. You deserve it. Do it once in a while. Gift your selves with life's pleasures.

So yeah, that's my thought on that. To all mom's out there, don't give 100% of yourself to your family
(though we really do even at 101%), leave at least 10% for yourself. Don't forget to love yourself.
Enjoy the pleasures life can offer. For without you, who would take care of your family, if you wouldn't take
care of yourself. We, too need to do something to feel good about ourselves.
