Flawless Beauty in a Box Review

January 31, 2018 6 Comments

Beauty begins when you accept yourself fully. It should be within yourself - in your heart and by just doing it the true beauty radiates in your physical features.

At first, I wasn't really confident of my own beauty. People like me, those Morena Girls, are usually neglected to the society of true beauty but through the years, peoples' perspective changes which leads to a much more demanding roles or have more variation about what true beauty means.

I'm not your girly girl type of women and I can survive a day without anything on my face. But when 2017 ends and here comes 2018, I decided to accept the challenge - #RacetoBeauty by Flawless Face and Body Clinic Philippines.

BEHIND THE CHALLENGE

Flawless (@flawlessfaceandbody) wants everyone to achieve that "confidently beautiful" look to every Filipina when they turned 16 last November 2017. As a celebration, they give back to their solid flawless family by providing a lot of promos and big discount.

So I grabbed the opportunity and bought my Beauty in a Box - Flawless Skincare Kit for only 499.00 php which usually sold for a thousand pesos plus. The kit includes almost everything (soap, toner, and night cream) but it lacks the sunscreen lotion/cream.

Continue reading to understand and know what I got.  But before I start, just a DISCLAIMER:

I'm not financially compensated for doing this review. I personally bought the product for review purposes only. Any opinion made is my own and 100% true and honest based on my personal experience.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION



SKIN WHITENING SOAP 90g. It contains Kojic Acid which lightens and provides the skin antimicrobial protection. Just like the typical kojic acid, and from the term itself, it is acid. Acid have that burning sensation when intake but for the skin, it has that "tight" feeling every after wash. 

HOW TO USE: Apply and massage in circular motion on the entire body or face. Rinse with water. It can be use for face and body and for your morning and night routine.

WHAT I DID: I apply and massage from my face and neck while counting 100 seconds or clock-clicks style. Then I rinse it with water. I even cut the soap in 3 equal rectangular shape so I can use it longer.

PROS:
  • First effect to my skin : My face is blooming. It feels like all the dirt were washed off properly and it tightens my skin.
  • After a few days of using it, it already have an effect to my skin.
CONS:
  • If your not fond of strong sensation, then using it will be painful.
  • It easily melt when it contacts with too much water or when frequently use. So I highly suggest to divide the product so you can use it longer.
RATING:
4 stars - loved the product






WHITENING TONER 120ml. It lightens the skin. It helps to restore the pH balance of the skin. It minimizes the appearance of future discoloration and hyperpigmentation. It smells alcohol so it has scent. I can compare it to some of those commonly used drugstore brands that are highly commercialized by artist in the Philippines.

HOW TO USE: Apply with an upward stroke on face and neck using cotton balls. It is for morning and evening use.

WHAT I DID: I followed the instruction. That upward stroke usually help our face not to get more wrinkles and helps to tighter our skin. Using it twice a day also help you to improve your skin color. 

PROS:
  • Toner helps me a lot with my discoloration and hyperpigmentation especially in my forehead. 
  • It gives me the feeling of a much cleaner feeling in the face.
CONS:
  • It has strong pH value that can dry your skin easily.
  • When applied, make sure to apply ample amount of it because just for some few strokes, the cotton balls seems dry already.
RATING:
5 stars - strongly loved the product.




SKIN WHITE THERAPY CREAM 15g. It is for acne prone skin and hyper pigmentation. It helps to exfoliate the skin. For the first few days after starting using this, I saw my face dry and my face are a bit peeling off. It's a norm thing when using whitening products, and it only show how effective the product is.

HOW TO USE: 
Apply evenly over the entire face every evening.

PRECAUTION:
Use sunblock/screen before sun exposure and this product is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women.

WHAT I DID: I just take a dip from the cream and make a dot across my face. I put it on my forehead, chin and cheeks then I'll spread it all over my face. Then the excess, I'll put it to my neck.

PROS:
  • Its light weight and non-sticky.
  • It really moisturized my skin and help me cover the dryness and peel offs in my face.
CONS:
  • I really love this cream so I don't have a bad thing to say other than it is a small pack.
RATING:
5 stars - strongly loved the product.

FINAL VERDICTS


PS :  I usually don't wear make up and this is just captured with room light (fluorescent). Sorry for my eyebags. lol. Please focus to my forehead. Though its not perfect yet it lightens my skin. #nofilter 

Overall I really love the product because of its effect to my skin. My face radiates and brightened after a month. The product last a month and I used the product every morning and night for exactly 32-days. There are times when my pimples show but it dry up quickly. I'm guessing this is because I maintain my face clean for a month.

A few tip also is to avoid contact with your bare hands to your face. If you can't avoid touching your face just like me, I always keep my hands clean and sanitize.

Anyways about the product/promo, it already expired last December 31, 2017.

OTHER PRODUCT USED:

  • Alcogel Aromatherapy Hand Sanitizer
  • Natural Republic 92% Aloe Vera Soothing and Moisturizer Gel (Morning Use)
  •  Belo Face Sun Expert Sun Screen (Travel Pack) *will have separate review for this one. so please stay tune. ^_^
THOUGHT OF THE DAY:

"Our face are usually exposed with dirt and germs so we have to clean them regularly. It goes the same way in keeping our hands clean every now and then to avoid transferring the dirt from the hand to your face... because pimples occur when our face are left uncleaned."

My First Experience with SampleRoom PH

January 12, 2018 8 Comments



Online shopping was been listed as one of the new trends today and it quickly increasing to its peak. I myself enjoy online shopping rather than going to the mall and purchase some item. Being a lazy person, a ONE CLICK purchase is a big yes for me.

If your an apprentice beauty enthusiast like me and looking for something to review or try before purchasing a full package, Sampleroom PH gives that to you.


www.sampleroom.ph is an online shop that let you "TRY BEFORE YOU BUY" in sample sizes. It is a community of beauty blogger as well that gives you their honest opinion before try things as well with their products.

HOW SAMPLEROOM WORKS:

  1. Sign up / Log in to your account. 
  2. After signing up you will receive an automatic of 100 points for you to start purchasing.
  3. Choose your item and make sure to is available. You can also check its equivalent points by clicking the picture. Make sure that you won't exceed to your points. You can subdivide it.
  4. Click the Cart and "Check out" if you're done choosing an item or click "continue shopping" if you have additional order. Please note that the MAXIMUM order per transaction is good for only 3 products.
  5. Choose your mode of payment. For my transaction, I pay through paypal. They also accept bank transfer and bayad center. you can visit their site for more details.
  6. Wait until 3 - 5 working days if your in Metro Manila and may add few more days for provincial shipping.
  7.  Try the product for at least one week before giving a REVIEW. Make a honest and sensible review for you to get back the points and for you to be able to purchase an item again.
To get more about Sample room you can visit their site at Sampleroom PH



What I love about Sample Room?
  • Worth it Sample Sizes that are FREE. All you need to pay is the shipping fee that will depends to the weight of the product. They have some full sizes but they also have sample sizes that already enough for a week or so.
  • Greeting Cards in every purchase. Though its not personalized I still love the effort of giving all the "Rommies" who purchase their product with a card of appreciation.
  • Variety of Option. They have sample products for Skin Care, Body Care, Cosmetic, Baby Care, and a lot more and so if your lucky enough, you get the items that you want with "Stock" label
Room for Improvement.
  • Availability of the product. Most of the items are Out of Stock so I have few option to choose of which I should purchase next.
  • Redeeming of Points. it took me  at least 2 weeks or so before I redeem my points again. 
An "Okay" part of the Service
  • Transaction and Shipping. Just follow their transaction method and you're good to go. As for the shipment and delivery, it took at least 3 days before it arrive to my place. It is not in they best mode of transaction but it is way better compared to other kind of services. :)
OVERALL RATING

Overall, the service of Sample Room is great from the packaging to the product as well as from placing the order to shipping.

ITEM BOUGHT:




  • BELO SUN EXPERT PROTECTION TRAVEL PACK

For the two tube, I prefer the face lotion in terms of consistency since the body lotion feels too dry for my skin. What I don't like about the facial lotion is the glowing effect or shining effect that happened to my face after using it. I just that like it especially I have oily skin.

  • HIMALAYA HERBALS GENTLE EXFOLIATING APRICOT

This exfoliating scrub had granules included and smell like oatmeal. I like the gentleness whenever I use this product.

This is not a paid post nor advertisement of the site or product. This is a personal information and honest review for the service and the product.

How about you guys? have you tried any sample room products?

Interview Series : Nutrition Therapy for Alcoholism and Substance Abuses

For more personalized and in-dept assessment with you current health situation, please consult a physician first  or directly message me for an individualized nutrition counseling. 

Thank you!


There are only five questions given to me and I responded it in the most possible way that people can understand. I hope that I'll be able to drop down all the technical term and converted it to a layman's term.  

Anyways, Just a quick introduction about the interview, there are three students of one of the prestigious University School, visited our hospital to conduct an interview about their assigned topic which about the Nutrition Therapy for Alcoholism and Substance Abuse. 

It wasn't a well-known topic for nutrition and there are limited resources to begin with. But these are one of the few health problems we currently dealing with here in the Philippines, but we neglect to discuss the implementation of the solution. (or maybe not?).

But Our President is very vocal about his stand about Drug Users and he has his own platform to wave them out but for those who "survive" we might as well take a step to resolve the problem through rehabilitation (I know its being done now) and the inclusion of nutrition therapy during those phase of recovery. 


Please refer to the Document below for the Question and Answer of the Interview.

Rehabilitation and complete recovery for an addiction will only happen with the "Will" of the person and with the continuous support of the Relatives, Friends and the whole Health Professional team. Moving as "ONE" can resolve everything.

Let's all discuss something more by give me your stand and opinion about the topic. and if you happen to like this post and please do share the post through social medias. Thank you for reading!
