Twenty-Seven Things I've Learned So Far...

March 29, 2020 2 Comments

Mizdee turned 27 on the 27th. In this time of my life, I decided to reflect with my life and see what I've been doing so far. I'm definitely not young anymore. I'm in my late twenties now and been living as an adult already. I'm somehow mature enough to understand the word "Earthy Living". Now, I would like to share with you my own twenty-seven things I've learned so far...

  • Family comes first because they are irreplaceable. Despite all your different view, opinion, likes and dislikes or preferences, they will still gives you a great lesson.
  • Always think twice in making decision. This will help you to make less mistake.
  • Take three Steps towards your dream everyday. Because in life, sometimes things didn't go according with our plans, but it gives you an advantage even you step back because you done two step ahead.
  • Force yourself to take risk, go out to your comfort zone so you can learn. If you don't try you will never learn or  know what it gonna feels like.
  • Never deprive yourself with good things. Enjoy the things you love, foods that comfort you so you'll be happier.
  • Seek happiness for you not to other's expense. Never depend your happiness to others.
  • Live a life that centered God. In everything you do, put God first and always ask for his guidance.
  • Embrace your imperfection because that makes you unique.
  • Failure is part of the process of Success. It's a cliche but still worth remembering.
  • You will always fall, make wrong decision multiple times, but don't let it stop you from trying again. Those wounds will heal and scars is left for you to remember it and learn from it.
  • Balance your Earthy Living and Spiritual Living. Earthy Living is a life on earth, and spiritual living is your life after. 
  • Fall in Love and Get Hurt. Because that's how love works.
  • Stand up for yourself. Don't let others decide for you.
  • Close the door if you need to. Don't stay with toxic people.
  • Fight back but still learn how to respect and empathize for the others.
  • Talk less, Argue less. Sometimes, you don't need to prove you're right to the person who choose otherwise.
  • Tomorrow will be today, and today will be yesterday. So make everyday a worth living day.
  • Spend your time equally for your family and friends, work and for yourself. 
  • In this time of your life, Some of your priorities will start to change according to the person you are with now.
  • Keep Smiling. There's a lot of things you should be happy.
  • Never regret nor forget your pass because those are the reason you become a better person now.
  • Make mistakes and learn. Don't make mistakes and just redo it again. It means you haven't learn from it yet.
  • Be yourself Always. If the person really loves you, that person will accept everything you about you and still see you beautiful even at your worst.
  • Accept constructive criticism because it help you to be a better person. Its different from bashing or pure insult at all. Those kind of things should be block.
  • Focus on your life. Do not compare because you have different story to tell.
  • Beauty Upgrades, Makeup and Pampering yourself is not a crime. Just don't overdo things, everything is alright. Those things is part of treasuring yourself, your beauty and the creation of God.
  • My life as adult haven't end here. The best is yet to come.

Yes. The best is yet to come. And I hope you learn something in this post. To those people who have the same age with a different story to tell. I would love to read your thoughts too. Just feel free to comment below. Tell me one thing we have in common or the thing I've learned that You learned it too?

Getting Ready to a Brighter White Glow with Cathy Doll Ready 2 White Collection

February 08, 2020 24 Comments

 Cathy Doll has been innovating and perform beauty upgrade for since 2011 through their products that perfectly compliments Asian Skin that even Pinay Beauty Enthusiasts start loving their (1) Cute Dolls Characters (2) and for its quick effective results.

For today, We will be sharing my thoughts about my latest sample I got from Sample Room PH, the Cathy Doll Ready 2 White (1) Foam Cleanser (2) White Boosting Cream and (3) Whitener Body Lotion.


Let me start off on our face care which are the Ready to White Foam Cleanser and White Boosting Cream.

READY 2 WHITE FOAM CLEANSER

This Cathy Doll ready 2 White Lightening Facial Cream deeply cleanse your face. It said to have 5 step cleaning which deeply remove your (1) make ups, (2) impurities, (3) pollutants, (4) oily residues, (5) and lastly it protects your skin for dust.


This Facial Foam Cleanser is very foamy even you just had a pinch of it. It naturally brighten my complexion and reduce the dullness of my face. What I really love about the product is that it also have anti-pollution ingredients which makes me feel at ease that my skin is protected even I travel from home to work and back.

CATHY DOLL READY TO WHITE WHITE BOOSTING CREAM

Cathy Doll Ready 2 White White Boosting Cream penetrates and delivers nutrients across multiple layers of skin with Nano Triple Encapsulation technology which embeds triple layers of glutathione, arbutin and snail secretion filtrate that improves skin elasticity, smoothens skin, and tighten pores through deep nourishment. It also combines various properties of Korean Herbs to nourish skin for a brightened look. The cream also guarantees a brightening and whitening experience from the first use


After washing my face with the Foam Cleanser, I also got a good amount of Cathy Doll Ready 2 White Boosting Cream which gives me an instant white effect which radiates a brighter and lighter look for my skin. It definitely gives me a fresh look.

White Boosting Cream is also light weight and non-sticky which is perfect for my oily -combine face. It is indeed reduce the oily residues I usually have in my face after a long day. But with this cream I still looks perfectly fine after work. 

CATHY DOLL READY TO WHITE WHITENER BODY LOTION

Cathy Doll Ready 2 White Whitener Body Lotion contains intense Glutathione and Arbutin for a sparkling aura appearance. The product has an intensive Milk Nano Protein that provides a deep-moisturizing effect for a youthful appearance through a lightweight and non-greasy texture.


Looking for an Instant White from your lotion? Why not try this Cathy Doll Whitener Body Lotion! I recently got this brand and indeed! It gives me glow and instant bright skin. 


It easy dry to your skin so you have to apply and spread it fast. It is also non-sticky and lightweight which  why I love it. It smells a real flower and not to strong. Indeed, it gives me instant result and last long to my skin even after few hours later. 

OVERALL VERDICT:

Lightening Facial Foam is definitely a must-have product for me especially if you travel a lot. The size of the sample is worthy already which is perfect if I go travel. What makes it unique today is its anti-pollution effect which is indeed very essential for today life. Its 4 out of 5 rating  for me.
 Whitening Boosting Cream is also a good deal product of Cathy Doll because it helps me to look fresh and brighter. It also last a few hours which is a good thing for those with oily - combined skin type. It really help me reduce the oiliness to my face and instead it gives me a great glow. Its 4 out of 5 rating as well for this product.
White Body Lotion is perfect if you have better skin color already. Though it gives me a lighter color, an instant white glow, It's a bit patchy for me or it doesn't even out properly. I don't know if I misuse it or I just need more product to apply. I'm not a fan for quick dry lotion because I feel that it doesn't gives me time to at least spread and massage the product to my body. Its 3 out of 5 rating  for me in this product.

At the end of the day, What works for me may or may not works for you because of our uniqueness and differences in terms of skin adaptation. So, for these collection I can recommend the greatness of their face set from facial foam to its cream, because I instantly get the glow I always fall in love with.

Let's Talk About Skin Rejuvenation

January 24, 2020 13 Comments

Skin Rejuvenation is a process of attempting to renew your skin and attempt the reversal of visible sign of ageing. Through Skin Rejuvenation, fine lines and wrinkles are reduce and help you achieve a fresh and younger looking skin.


What are the Benefits of Skin Rejuvenation?

  • It minimize fine lines and wrinkles
  • Help to tighten and lift your skin to get back that young look
  • It improves acne scars, sun damage and pigmentation that are visible to your skin.

How Long You should use a Rejuvenating Set or Products?

As advice from Dermatologist, Rejuvenating set must be use at least for 30 days or One Month. Then take a break or use milder or maintenance set for a week or 2 weeks. This will also help your skin naturally renew your skin cells.


What the usual effects of Rejuvenating Sets?

Once you try any rejuvenating set, there will be visible changes that you will see. Some of the usual effect of nay rejuvenating sets will be

  • Peeling
  • Redness
  • Skin stinging
  • Break outs
  • Darkening
So if you want to try any skin rejuvenation, you must be aware first if you really need one. Some people, just like me, I use a rejuvenating set to even out my skin tone and to whiten my face since it is darker than my body shade. 

As part of my ganda story, I also want to share a bit of information about skin care and beauty information I learned or will be learning. See you to my next post :)

GANDA STORY INTRO

January 18, 2020 11 Comments

Ganda is a filipino term which means beautiful. Ganda Story is about getting my beauty upgrade and share it with you as a journey on how I be able to improve myself, be more confident and become a better version of me.

Yes, I'm not a perfect person and I'm not trying to be one. And though I'm confident about myself, I still have a lot of insecurities and things I want to improve about myself.  One way of it, is by fixing the way I look, be who I am, and the way I wanted to be.

This is basically about some products I used to beautify me or some services I avail to enhance my beauty.

This is my new segment I'm planning to post in the next few days. I'll be sharing to my story and actual experience I had just to achieve the goal I wanted to be.

This is not just about the physical beauty but also the true beauty inside and out.

DISCLAIMER:

I love my color, es, but I wanted to get a better shade of my skin color right now because I feel more confident with it. I also just wanted to remove some of my dark spots and acne marks that is visible and be more fresh and get a healthier skin. 

So please, if your against with whitening or something, its your choice, not mine and I think there's nothing wrong if I wanted to improve myself.

CLOSING THE LAST CHAPTER OF 2019

January 04, 2020 12 Comments

Just like everyone else and just like every other year, we have to stop, look back and feel grateful about our ending year, no matter what happened and whatever emotion linger for the past few months. 

For this year, 2019, I don't have great story to tell but I'm still thankful for surviving and still living for this year. I be able to meet new friends, try new things but manage to relax a bit and just enjoy life as an adult. 

I expected that sometimes in my life being, I will feel the real struggle of Adulting but experiencing it for real is a very different story. 
Indeed, even you prepare for an upcoming event in your life, it will always be a different feeling and unexpected things will still be happening during that time.

I honestly breakdown and cried for the hardship but I know it'll makes me stronger and better. And thankfully, that even in my lowest, there's someone who help me to stay focus and surpass that moment. 

I know, some of you having it worst, as they say, but remember, Both small or big problems are still problem for you to solve and the feeling will always depend to the holder. For you it maybe small but some may considered it as big problem to solve.

I've learned a lot in my 26th years of experience, and soon I'll be a year older again, and the real life still have a lot of works to offer me, but I'm ready. I may fall, stumble a few step back, but I double my steps to move forward. 

Thank you 2019. And as I close this chapter, and open a new chapter of my life, I want to say few more things...
  • Thank you for making me cry about my problems I've face because you help me to improve myself, to be better, to be proud of my achievements, and that I survive till the end.
  • Thank you for letting me see the value of friendship and family which I somehow neglected it, because this time, I know what to prioritize first and what to sacrifice first.
  • Thank you for helping me understand that I'm not alone because I be able to connect and have stronger faith in God's Miracle and Blessings.
And for my readers and avid followers, Thank you for staying and making my 2019 something worth remembering. 2019... Thank you for everything but for now, I want to say my goodbyes for all memories we had, because now, I'll open a new chapter of my life. I'm here and ready now, 2020.

To the Man I Loved Before... Thank You. || To Him From Her Series

November 12, 2019 30 Comments

Sometimes we overlook the goodness in every goodbyes we had in our lives because we dwell too much in pain. Then later in our lives, we got the courage to smile back to our painful past and turn it to a beautiful memory instead. And now that I can be that woman who can smile back and laugh about the past, I just wanted to tell you this... Thank you, especially to the man I loved before.

Thank you for giving me a chance to see myself and understand my worth as a woman. Because back then, my world is you and it was not Me & You. And now I understand that love should be equally shared by both of you, to make it work and make it last.

Thank you for letting me go and allow me to find someone who will love me despite of all my flaws and still love me even I don't feel loving myself. Because if I hold on to you, I may not see the other way of loving myself and won't allow others to love me for who I am. Because back then, I'm young, insecure and felt a need of validation from you to let me feel better.

Thank you because we both choose to grow separately and find our own happiness. Because, if We stayed with our relationship, I'm sure both of us will not be happy and we won't see a better way of loving ourselves and someone else.

Don't get me wrong. I don't hate you now and I know you're not a bad person, We are just young and on progress of growing back then. We don't really have firm decision and just a curious cat about love before. 

But now, I'm really grateful about what we had before because without you or if I didn't experience that kind of love, we will not grow as a better person now and find love that we both deserve. So thank you, for being part of my past and hoping for your happiness.

SMILE CONFIDENTLY WITH THIS NEW WHITE ATTRACTION TOOTHPASTE

November 03, 2019 12 Comments

"  A smile is the best make up any girl can wear" - Marilyn Monroe. Indeed, Though make up can make as stronger and more confident, a great smile can still beat them all. And to make you feel confident with yourself, of course you have to take good care of your teeth with proper oral hygiene.


For the past few weeks, I've used this new product of Closeup White Attraction. This gel toothpaste that said to gentle polish and remove the stain of your teeth. They have two variants : (1) Bamboo Charcoal with Coconut Extract and (2) Lemon Essence with Sea Salt.

NATURAL GLOW (BAMBOO CHARCOAL & COCONUT EXTRACT)
- These combination helps your teeth become whiter and brighter. It also remove bad bacteria to have better oral and gum health. The bamboo charcoal also help with the pH balance in the mouth.

Pricing: 76 pesos for 100ml
Availability: Available in Watsons and all leading supermarkets, groceries, and drugstores nationwide. Also available in Shopee and Lazada.


OVERALL PRODUCT EXPERIENCE:

I can't say more with the product packaging and design. It really classy and different with the typical "red packaging" of closeup. In terms with the overall quality and effectiveness of the product and with the value of it for money, It's around 7/10 rate. This is because it only keep my breath fresh but it doesn't work as teeth whitening. So for a 76 pesos worth of toothpaste who only gives fresh breath and as a flavored-toothpaste, it doesn't seems to be worth it.

NATURAL SMILE (LEMON ESSENCE & SEA SALT)
- These combination helps your teeth become whiter and brighter. It also remove bad bacteria to have fresh breath and plaque. It also help to neutralize the pain sensitivity that your teeth have.

Pricing: 76 pesos for 100ml
Availability: Available in Watsons and all leading supermarkets, groceries, and drugstores nationwide. Also available in Shopee and Lazada.


OVERALL PRODUCT EXPERIENCE:

Same goes with this variant. The packaging is unique and very classy. I like the color a lot. As for the performance of the product, in comparison with the "Natural Glow" I prefer this variant. I really felt that my teeth is clean, I got fresh breath and the taste is better. I also felt protected from germs. Though again the whitening property to it is not really showing. There's no chance at all.

These both products is something new in Closeup. Its best quality is its flavored-toothpaste that really gives you a strong fresh breath after brush. But in its whitening property, it doesn't work for me. How about you? What is you current toothpaste that you really enjoy using?
