Bioessence Facial Treatment

It has been almost two months since my last facial treatment so when I felt the sides of my nose yesterday, I came close to screaming.  It was lined with coarse little bumps that could only mean one thing– blackheads!

So I immediately picked up the phone and called Bioessence Davao to schedule an appointment for a basic facial treatment for me and my friend, Dulce.  We both have Bioessence gift certificates courtesy of Andrew and Ria who got them from a press event they attended last year.

e.l.f. Get The Look: Smokey Eyes

E.L.F. Get The Look Smokey Eyes

I have been wanting to try out e.l.f  cosmetics ever since I read a ton of reviews about it.  Consumers believe that most of their products deliver and of course, the price tag is really, really affordable.

So during a trip to Manila, I made sure I dropped by Watson’s  to purchase a couple of e.l.f.  cosmetic items (Watson’s do have branches here in Davao City but they don’t carry the brand).  I didn’t have anything in mind so I just decided to buy something I could use almost everyday.

Korean Exfoliating Gloves (Italy Towel)

Korean Bath Gloves

I love to exfoliate so about 2-3 times per week, I go for a total body scrub for some serious exfoliation.  I tell you, nothing beats the sensation of having soft pinkish skin after a body scrub!

Most of you may have used loofah, bath scrubbing gloves, or those nylon or ramie bath mitts to slough off dead skin cells and remove impurities.  I have used those items and once thought them to be effective but I was so wrong!  Because nothing beats the Korean exfoliating glove (daesugun or ddae soogun) or Italy towel when it comes to exfoliation.

Categorizing Skin Care and Beauty Products

We all have our own list of skin care and beauty finds that we simply can’t live without.  I’m sure you painstakingly built your skin care and make-up collection and have updated your stash by carefully weeding out items that did not deliver.

My skin care and beauty items are divided into 5 categories:  the regulars, the occasionals, the  forgettables, the regrettables, and the totally indispensables. I just came up with the categories  and here’s my definition:

  • Regulars–  Products that I like and  use almost everyday but may be substituted by  better products in the future.   My Tony Moly and Maybelline lipglosses, an inexpensive Korean cheek color, Maybelline unstoppable eyeliner, Loreal UV Perfect sunblock, and MAC Powder plus Foundation fall under this category. Some other skin care products and most of my toiletries belong to this group.
