The Beauty Bakery Milk and Vanilla Sea Salt Scrub - First Impressions

I have never tried a sea salt scrub before ever... haha... at least in the comfort of my home... I've tried some foot spa before, when we had our vacation in Baguio though.  My friend, Judy gave this to me, since she has an extra according to her... (Whew... good thing though, I'm running out of things to review hahahahaha... since all the products I've reviewed are NOT Sponsored in any way.)

So let's begin... this is a new experience for me too... 😊

Packaging 
It comes in a very cute plastic bottle with a cork cap.  The plastic bottle is translucent with sticker label.  It also comes with a wooden spoon.  The jar contains 200g of the product
Smell 
Mild vanilla scent.  I couldn't smell the milk, if there's supposed to be a scent, nor the "salty" smell like the oceans haha.
Consistency 
It's like fine salt.  Less coarse than the rock salt, but coarser than the iodized salt... (if that makes sense?)




Application 
Let me show you first my bare feet before application....
EEWW!!!... So many dry flaky skin and it's not picture worthy....
A small amount can go along way.  Here I applied the scrub in my wet right foot and my left foot none.  It's not harsh... It feels like you're rubbing salt/sugar onto your foot.  While I was applying this, my geeky mind was thinking... "Since my foot is wet when I applied the salt... won't it dissolve???"  Anyways, that's beyond the scope of this blog.

I then rinsed it off.  It didn't turn into anything milky, ( I was expecting it will emulsify to milky texture since there was a word milk in its name.) 
Here's a comparison of my both feet.  I thought that there's no difference in both my feet.

That's what I thought.... I felt my right foot more smooth than my left foot.   And since I did this after my morning shower, when I went to work.. My right foot really FELT IT!!! It's more sensitive than the left one.  I can really feel every step whenever my right foot lands on the floor while walking.  In Filipino, "Damang Dama ng paa ko talaga."

I'm recommending that you do this on a weekend, when you will be expecting to just rest at home.  This can be part of your pampering routine at home.
Duration of use1 day
Pros 
Exfoliates your skin
Smells good
Gentle
Cons 
I couldn't think of any con
Recommend?
Yes
Rating
9/10

I may be biased since I'm not the type of person who's into body scrubs...  I guess I have mixed feelings on this: I don't think this is essential though and if maybe I have extra money, I will buy this.

Oh yeah, since this is a gift, I'm not sure how much this is.  But in Beauty MNL it's Php 350.  I think not bad already.

A Simple Act Producing Full of Joy

Have you ever experienced before wherein a stranger, did some random act of kindness which made you really, truly happy that you will remember it for the rest of your life?

During that time, your heart was filled with so much joy that nothing could ever destroy your day.  And not all people have the luck and opportunity to experience that especially if you receive it from your idol.

Mr. Jerrod Maruyama is my favorite Graphic Artist, I literally have a folder in my computer containing all of his works.  And it gives me great inspiration seeing all his kawaii works.  Whenever I have my phone cases customized, it's always a Jerrod Maruyama design.  That's how much I love and adore him.

When your in the medical field, you're taking care of sick people, some in one of their lowest times of their lives, and sometimes, you get affected of the negative energy revolving inside the hospital.  Crafting has always been my escape and it has forever given me my touch of positivity.  It never left me alone when I was depressed.  It's very patient, that despite I don't have time to make anything crafty and artistic, arts and crafts have never left my side. 

So when I decided today to think of something or an event that made me really happy, I thought of this event which happened last July 30, 2014.  When one of my creations was featured by my favorite artist from another side of the world!!!  Featuring my work, from a humble resident physician in the Philippines.  Who could ask for more?!

Biore UV Perfect Face Milk - Review

The Biore sunscreen is just my holy grail sunscreen.  At SPF 50+, you can get the sun protection you need without being too heavy on your skin.

I've just finished my Biore UV Perfect Bright Milk and though I really loved that sunscreen, I bought a different variant since I wanted to try the others as well.

I ordered this at Beauty MNL and as expected I got the package the very next day after I made the payment.  This is one of the reasons why I loved buying from them.


Packaging 
It comes in a plastic bottle with a pointed tip.  There's I think a ball inside, you can shake the bottle and you get the satisfying feeling of the sound of the ball inside.  This is one of the 3 variant, the one with white pearl colored cap.

Kuromi Face Powder - First Impressions Review


Ok I will admit it, the main reason I bought this is because of KUROMI!!! Kuromi is my favorite sanrio characters, I'm a sucker for this character.

So when I saw this, without hesitation bought it.   Then I came to look what is the brand.  This is from Angel Cover Wonder Collect Face Powder.   I bought this on instagram last year, I forgot the online shop sorry.  But recently I see these often in Bazaars already.  I really have to hold my restraints from using this since I still have a face powder during that time.

PS: you can check availability of other characters 😍

Packaging The main reason I bought this is because of the packaging.  I really didn't care if the shade wouldn't match me, I'll just replace the contents with something that matched me, but thankfully this comes in a light shade. Anyways... Don't you just love looking at this???

Fashion 21 Eyeshadow Palette - First Impressions

There's been a slight delay of my review posts, well it's because I've been busy preparing for my report (in urocon).  After the conference I felt really drained, like I've used up all of my energy for that conference.

Anyways... I'm supposed to review the Laneige Lip Mask, however I've decided to use it a little longer so I can make a more reasonable review for it.

Let's just have a first impressions first of this local brand, Fashion 21 Eyeshadow Kit.  This is the eyeshadow palette I've been wanting to buy since it offers a wide range of colors for you to play with. 



Packaging The packaging is a standard plastic black packaging.  There's no mirror in the cover which is a con for me.  There's no applicator also, which is another con also.  I feel that the plastic packaging will break easily.
