I did my facial skincare routine on my underarm and this is what happened

I know it’s not just me, but a lot of us would rather keep our pits hidden so as to save our faces from embarrassment. I’ve used several underarm whitening products, and while some of them showed positive results, a lot of them barely even worked.

I’d end up blaming the product for not being as effective as they were claimed to be, not thinking of the condition of my underarm skin.

USAPANG KILI-KILI with SKIN KLARITY’s Total Care Underarm Kit

Sweaty armpits? Nakakadiyaheng B.O. (body odor)? Dark secrets?

If all your answers were YESes, read on.

Last August 4th, I had the privilege to join beautiful bloggers and beauty enthusiasts at the soft launch of a new local skin care brand called SKIN KLARITY. I was invited by Ai Zel, one of my pretty friends; and despite the location of the venue, I gladly and immediately said yes!

The company owners Ms. Cheryl and Sir Mark shared their interesting journey with Skin Klarity. They said it all started with Ms. Cheryl’s own issues, particularly sweating. They couldn’t find the perfect product, so they thought, “Why not make our own?” Continue reading “USAPANG KILI-KILI with SKIN KLARITY’s Total Care Underarm Kit”

My Best Friend and I Tested Out Pinoy Whitening Soaps | The Opulence Skin

Remember when I received a box of goodies from Opulence Skin Philippines? You can read my post here.


They generously gave me three variants of their whitening soap – the Ultra White Protect Glycolic Peel Whitening Soap, the Ultra White Protect Skin Clarifying Soap, and the Ultra White Protect Charcoal Detox Whitening Soap. I had my childhood best friend, May, whom I call Gerpren, try the Ultra White Protect Skin Clarifying Soap.

May and I were never lady-like or kikay. We were both too lazy to keep up with skin care routines, that’s why we consider ourselves “late bloomers” in the skin care category. We never trusted any whitening products since none of the ones we tried really showed any difference, that’s why we stuck to what we were already used to – regular bath soaps. (Hello, Safeguard!)

Opulence is a local brand that makes good quality skin care products. I’ve used their Time to Glow Brightening Set, and if you want to read about my experience with it, please click  here.

They’ve been UBER-ly generous to send me some of their products which all came in a very cute pink box called the “Love Box by Opulence”.


I posted a quick unboxing video on my IG stories and on Facebook. Continue reading “UNBOXING + FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Love Box by OPULENCE ❤”

BOTTOMS UP! Product Empties #1

I have been collecting empty boxes, jars, and bottles for months, because I’ve planned on posting my “product empties”. My mom was already eyeing on them and was itching to throw them away. So I just kept them all in a shoe box.


Actually not all. 😪 I got rid of some because I kept forgetting that I’d be posting my empties!

I have been meaning to post this, but see, it took me ages before I actually did! Thanks to Dee! I am finally doing it.

So yeah, I’m doing this in collaboration with Dee, and you can check out her blog here.

Dee and I collaborated last December 2017 on YouTube, and we both did a Holiday Glam makeup look.

This time we’re doing a collab on our respective blogs. I’m so excited to know what products she’s used up, and whether or not she’s going to get them again.

Mine consists of products that I used up from way, way back. Everything is listed in random order.

By the way, isn’t it satisfying to see ourselves actually finishing up items we spent our money on whether or not we like them? Continue reading “BOTTOMS UP! Product Empties #1”

Brighten face in 7 days?! | #RIXREVIEWS: OPULENCE Time to Glow Face Brightening Set

First of all, I’d like to thank Ms. Trish of Opulence for sending over their Time to Glow Face Brightening Set. Rest assured, everything I’m writing here is purely my honest opinion. Everything is going to be based on my personal experience.

Prior to this I had a different routine, which consisted of some other local products, Korean brands, and Opulence White + Renew. I stopped using the other products for a good seven days, and used only the products from Opulence. I wanted to be sure that any changes that would occur were solely because of these products.

What is Opulence Skin?

Opulence Skin offers skin care products that are all made in the Philippines. According to their website, they use “the best local and important active ingredients.

What’s included in the kit?
