#RIXREVIEWS: NATURE SKIN SECRETS Skin Purifier Black Toner

First things first, let me begin this post by telling you some things that must be considered:

  1. I had not used any toners before I got this. It’s been ages since I last used one.
  2. I was having a bad skin day when I received it – more like bad skin dayS – so my skin was rough and I had several pimples on my forehead, somewhere on the cheeks, and around the mouth area.
  3. I’m not a doll so I don’t have a perfect skin. I’ve had pimple marks and scars and that’s that.
  4. I don’t get facials. The first and the last time I did was at Flawless Sta. Rosa back in 2016, and that’s how I got my huge pimple scar on my right cheek underneath my eye. I had an acne when I went there, and my attendant pricked it.
  5. Of course, this is not the only product that I’m currently using. However, I can tell that the results I got was from this product, since the other products were already being used even before I had the toner.
  6. This product was sent to me to try and review.
    DO NOTE, THOUGH, THAT I ALWAYS GIVE MY SUPER DUPER HONEST OPINION AND I BASE EVERYTHING ON HOW I FEEL DURING THE PROCESS AND HOW GOOD THE OUTCOME IS. SO IF I SAY I LOVE IT, THAT MEANS I LOVE IT, AND IF I SAY I HATE IT, THAT MEANS I HATE IT.
    ALSO, REMEMBER THAT NOT BECAUSE IT WORKS FOR ME, IT WILL WORK FOR YOU. BUT WHO KNOWS? RIGHT? BETTER TRY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. 😉

Okay, let’s get started!

You may have read two Nature Skin Secrets products on my blog – the Detox Mask with Black Combo and You Glow Girl Gold Collagen Detox Mask. In case you haven’t yet, I mentioned on both posts that the thing I don’t like about them is the lack of information on labels. I always read the labels before actually diving into any product. (Comment below if you do it, too!) Continue reading “#RIXREVIEWS: NATURE SKIN SECRETS Skin Purifier Black Toner”

Foot Spa at Home!|RIXREVIEWS: Calmia & Purederm Foot Peeling Masks

“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

The most exhausted part of our body might be the feet. They bear our entire weight, as we go about our day. Sometimes, they’re even squished in really tight shoes. They’re often the least loved.

It is fortunate that nowadays there are plenty of ways to pamper our poor feet. Some might cost Galleons, but I know one that does not cost that much! Or at least, two! 😉

My sister and I decided to try out the trendy foot peeling masks. We had seen promotional videos on these products and we got really curious. Though the peeling stage scared me a bit, I knew that exfoliation was the only way to a smoother pair of feet. Continue reading “Foot Spa at Home!|RIXREVIEWS: Calmia & Purederm Foot Peeling Masks”

#RIXREVIEWS: NARUKO Tea Tree Purifying Clay Mask & Cleanser in 1

One of the perks of having attended Glamcon MNL last January 21st was being able to get free samples from participating brands. One of those brands was Naruko.

Naruko was founded by Niuer, whom everyone in Taiwan refers to as the “Beauty King”. The brand was awarded the “Best New Brand 2010” in Taiwan and China, and for three consecutive years (2008-2010), it was considered as “the most outstanding contribution to beauty”.

The brand has established itself as distinctive and highly regarded, so I consider myself fortunate to be able to try at least one of their most sought-after products. Continue reading “#RIXREVIEWS: NARUKO Tea Tree Purifying Clay Mask & Cleanser in 1”

Bring out the sparkles in you! | UNBOXING: ALTHEA’S Gold Sparkling Box

“You’re worth more than gold.” -unknown

The past year was definitely like being on a giant swing. Adventurous. Thrilling. Terrifying. Exciting. Nauseating.

It wasn’t really that bad, actually. There were still a lot of things to be grateful for. One of these amazing things was being given the opportunity to try the products in this cleverly curated box from Althea! (Thanks, Ms. Tammy and to Althea Mermaid and Pixies! 😘)

Few weeks ago, I was given the privilege to pick among their three holiday boxes: the Red Sparkling Box (P1420), the Gold Sparkling Box (P1,330), and the Black Sparkling Box (P1,460). (Obviously, I picked the gold one. Hehe!) Unfortunately, as of this writing, the Gold Sparkling Box is out of stock! You can still purchase the other two boxes, but you need to hurry! ‘Cause they sell like hotcakes!

I WON IN ALTHEA’S SELFIE CONTEST!

A couple of months ago, Althea held the Petal Velvet Powder Selfie Contest where they’d be choosing 10 lucky winners of $50 worth of Althea shopping credits. Thanks to my girl Christine (@theglamourhour) for making me join. Had she not, I wouldn’t have had this rare opportunity!

The $50 shopping credits appeared on my Althea account on October 31st, as promised by one of their “pixies”. Prior to this, I had already picked all the items I wanted to get and added them all to cart. (The winners were announced beginning of October.) By the time I was ready to check out, some of the items had already been out of stock. So I had to go through their vast ocean of amazing Korean skin care and makeup products again.

Thanks again to my beshy Christine, I learned that I could use Althea’s Halloween promo code at that time to get 13% discount. So, yep! I got to pick more items just to use up all P2,600 ($50) credits.

Had it not been for the shopping credits and the promo code, I would’ve paid P3,194! I got a discount of P415.22 so I only had to pay P178.78.

The best part? I only had to wait 10 days! They’ve been consistent, by the way. This was the third time I purchased from them, and I have never been disappointed. They shipped out my parcel on the 1st of November, and it was delivered to my doorstep today, the 11th. No problems with ‘croicky’ Customs.

Let me now show you the products that I picked. Continue reading “I WON IN ALTHEA’S SELFIE CONTEST!”

Love your skin. Moisturize! | RIXREVIEWS: HERA Cell-Bio Trial Kit II | GABISTAR PH

For years, I was led to believe that moisturizers were a major no-no for someone who had oily skin such as me.

This turned out to be a huge mistake since all skin types need proper amount of moisture and hydration in order for the skin to work properly.

I’ve learned that our skin produces more oil if it’s too dry. So it’s not really good when it feels squeaky clean. Continue reading “Love your skin. Moisturize! | RIXREVIEWS: HERA Cell-Bio Trial Kit II | GABISTAR PH”
