Review: Neogen Dermalogy Real Fresh Foam Green Tea

Neogen is one of the brands that I’ve been wanting to try for the longest time. Aside from being a cruelty-free and all natural brand, they also use six core technologies for ultimate skin benefits. They really take skin care to the next level. One of the products I’ve set my eyes on is the Real Fresh Foam Green Tea. I’m really into products that have green tea because it has so many benefits (anti-aging, helps with acne, less sebum) for our skin. It was a no-brainer when I bought it. Neogen Dermalogy Real Fresh Foam Green Tea is a non-irritating, extremely gentle foam cleanser with fresh green tea water and natural nutrients. It gently yet effectively cleanses skin and lifts away impurities without upsetting skin while leaving skin smooth and moisturized. I have to be honest, even if Soko Glam says that it is the perfect water-based cleanser after an oil-cleanser, I paid it no mind. I was convinced that I could use this as the only cleanser in my skincare routine. That’s my …

Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder vs Innisfree No Sebum Blur Powder

These two powders are my favorite powders in the entire world. Not only do they get the job done but it’s also dirt cheap! If you’re looking for a powder that can help with the sebum on your face, I highly recommend any of these two from Innisfree. The original one is the Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder. It has a faint inexplicable smell to it (but I like to call it the mineral smell) that helps control sebum for the whole day. It has a brightening effect that I attribute to its white color. When using this product, I highly advise to blend it into your skin really well as it sometimes gives off a subtle white cast. The Innisfree No Sebum Blur Powder, on the other hand, doesn’t have any distinct smell. It also has a beige color which helps in its blurring effect. It helps cover up any pores or subtle impurities that your face might have. It also greatly helps with controlling sebum and keeping you matte and fresh all day. One …

Matte Lipsticks

I’m not a fan of lipsticks, in general. I’m just a simple girl who prefers to use her lip and cheek stains for everything! However, with the rising trend of matte lipsticks partnered with my then consumeristic mindset, I bought some to try. 

Watson’s Hair Removal Cream/Wax Strips

Since I have an upcoming wedding, I have been trying to save money left and right. I am not buying new products until my old products are emptied. I am also looking for dupes or cheaper alternatives for my favorite products. I have come a long way and I am proud of myself. It might seem silly to be proud of this small feat but the extra money I save can be used for far better things. I am a hairy girl. To keep all my hair at bay, I use hair removal products religiously. My brand of choice is, and always will be, Veet. I decided to give the Watson’s hair removal cream and wax strips a try since it was cheaper by a few pesos. Upon using the Watson’s hair removal cream, the result frustrated me so much I wanted to cry. It didn’t remove any hair at all. I followed the instructions to the T but it just didn’t work! I don’t know if my leg hair was too long or I should’ve …
