Review: PanOxyl 4% Cream

Pimples occur when too much oil clogs our pores and get infected by bacteria. It can worsen if you're having too much stress or if you're using a cosmetic that doesn't suit your skin. That's why it is always advisable to wash your face twice daily and know the products that's good for your skin.

But, what if you wake up and there's a sight of zit on your face? Especially a big one that hurts.

Just like what I had four days ago. You can almost see that there's a pus in it. 




I'm glad that we have benzoyl peroxide PanOxyl at home. But this one's new because it's not the gel type that they used to sell, it's now the PanOxyl Cream. According to the pharmacist, the PanOxyl Gel was already discontinued.





I like how the manufacturing date and expiration date can also be seen at the back of this tube just in case you lost the box.

Review: Garnier BB Eye Roll-on

8:41 PM Elle 12 Comments

Let's admit that no matter how strict our beauty regimen is, there will still be a time where zits appear unexpectedly and dark under eye cirlcles are obvious. It's a good thing that Garnier has products that can address our dilemma. There is the Pure Active Pimple Roll-on that dries out pimples and the BB Eye Roll-on that instantly hides under eye imperfection and gives you a fresh look.

Thanks to my sister who purchased the Garnier BB Eye Roll-on. She was supposed to repurchase the Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-on but I saw the BB Eye Roll-on product online and I thought it functions the same as the Brightening Eye Roll-on so I told her to try it this time. When she came home, I inspect the product and that's the only time I noticed that it's like a concealer. Though she bought the wrong one, the good news is, she bought it on sale. That time it was a buy one take one and she gave the other one to me.

Review: Ever Bilena Extreme Lipstick

Hello, ladies! It's a weekday again! Time to get up early and be smitten by the morning rush to school or work. Do you still have enough time to put a little make-up on before leaving the house? Even if we have a make-up haul, we should know at least what is our go-to product especially when we are running late. Mine would be a foundation, for my oily skin and a lipstick, for my pale lips.

Did you know that the first make-up I had was a lipstick? I had it when I was 14 or 15 when my mom gave me. Since then, it became a staple in my kikay kit. The current lipstick that I'm using is from the Ever Bilena Extreme Lipstick line.

Toilet Paper Roll Speaker

8:44 PM Elle 4 Comments




























I found this craft online and decided to make one at home. Who would have thought that we can still repurpose this stuff instead of throwing it away? There are only few things that we'll be needing, but I've decided to be a little bit tedious on this one. I'll decoupage the outer part to give it a different look.


Things we'll need:
  • Toilet paper roll
  • Cutter
  • Pencil (or any marker)
  • Ruler
  • Push pins or paper clamp

For the decoupage:
  • Glue
  • Water
  • Brush or sponge
  • Torn pieces of newspaper
  • Masking tape


How to do it:

Measure the length and thickness of your mobile phone and mark the toilet paper roll.

Cut according to the mark.

Review: Color Trends Nail Polish

I know some of you ladies are painting your nails with popping colors and even trying out different nail arts. Isn't it just like a happy pill when we see our nails done in such a beautiful way? From nude, matte, metallic and neon, we just love putting on different styles and show our creative side.

My sister went to Watsons last month and she found this new brand of nail polish on the shelf. It's the Color Trends Nail Polish. This product is only Php 19.75 for this 11 ml bottle. Quite a steal, huh?

Review: Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil

12:10 PM Style and Glow 9 Comments

I've seen a lot of good online reviews about this product and some of them consider it as their HG. It is not your usual target whitening product that comes in a form of a cream or soap. Hence, it is made of sunflower oil. Some of you may not like the idea of putting an oil into parts of your body especially on your face, but this one claims that it is a miracle bottle. Sunflower oil is known for its moisturizing properties and it also contains vitamins A, C, D and E which makes it good for skin application.




Here's a list of what it can do to your skin:
1. Helps soften and lighten underarms 2. Helps lighten dark spots & pimple marks 3. Under eye moisturizer 4. Helps prevent & diminish the appearance of stretch marks 5. Helps lighten dark under eye circles 6. Softens feet soles, knees & elbows 7. Removes stubborn makeup 8. Overall body moisturizer 9. Helps diminish fine lines around the eyes 10. Helps soften cuticles and dry skin 11. Makes skin glow and helps keep it youthful 12. Helps relax tired, puffy eyes 13. Helps relieve itch & redness caused by insect bites 14. Nourishes & conditions eyelashes 15. Helps lighten dark lips 16. Adds shine to dull hair 17. Helps ease dry & itchy scalp 18. Helps improve skin condition after sunburn 19. Smoothens dry, rough skin from shaving  20. Helps calm skin & ease rashes 21. Helps relieve symptoms of skin infections 22. Helps hydrate dry patches on face 23. Helps lighten lesions and scars 


So many benefits, right? That's why I've decided to give it a try and see if it really works. I've been using this for two months now and I'm applying it on my face and on my ankle joint once a day.

Review: Human Nature Balancing Face Toner

8:38 PM Style and Glow 0 Comments

I admit that I have a lousy skin care regimen and if I won’t be wearing a makeup, I wouldn’t apply a toner or a moisturizer either. But now I’m starting to follow the basic skin care routine which is to cleanse, tone and moisturize. I was at the mall when I chanced upon this product at The Landmark, Trinoma’s skin care section.



(There is the manufacturing date and expiration date)
