Even though my blog has turned to paper, I did not completely swear off makeup and skincare. Especially now that the weather has turned a bit colder, I’ve started wearing more makeup again and felt more confident that it will not melt off five minutes after I put it on. Admittedly, I have not been using any skincare either beyond sunscreen and sunblock during the summer months (que horror!) but I’ve now started picking up where I left off. Here’s what excites me recently:
My go-to sunscreen in the colder months is Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Essence, SPF50+. I like the texture of this sunscreen, very smooth and silky and more importantly very light on the skin. It does not feel like I have something thick or heavy when I have this on, and I think it does not easily melt or sweat off. I could not comment on the whitening effects of this because I don’t really take note of that.
Biore is now available in the Philippines, distributed by Vibelle Corporation (also handles Jergens and Caronia). Biore products can be bought from Watsons, Landmark, and certain supermarkets! I’m very excited because I’ve seen Liz’s review of the Aqua Rich Watery Essence, which is something I’m keen on trying.
My go-to skin lotion is SkinWhite Advanced Whitening Lotion. It’s a nice moisturizing lotion for the body, and is quite nice smelling. It’s a little heavy for the summer months, but perfect for recent cooler times. It’s very easy to spread and feels great on the skin.
I’ll be featuring my recent beauty favorites in this section maybe every couple of weeks or so.
