Review: Aztec Secret Facial and Body Soap with Bentonite, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Moroccan Argan Oil

Review: Aztec Secret Facial and Body Soap with Bentonite, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Moroccan Argan Oil

Remember the time when people go gaga with Aztec Indian Healing Clay? Due to its popular demand, different brands have been innovating products with Aztec clay. Now, the brand “Aztec Secret” offers Aztec soaps that are locally made in the Philippines. As of the moment, they have three variants of soaps available but I chose this one because of its argan oil ingredient.

Price:

P 219.00

Net Weight:

130g

Product Description:

Aztec bentonite soap is made from the same powerful minerals of Aztec bentonite facial clay, proven to cleanse and detoxify your skin and draw out impurities. This soap is combined with Argan Oil and Apple Cider Vinegar which will help balance the pH levels of your skin and give a skin a youthful glow. It restores elasticity and leaves skin feeling plumper and softer.

My thoughts:

The moment I saw this soap in social media, I got too excited so I was not able to read reviews but when I went to Watsons, I read all the ingredients and details listed. I thought all their soaps are good for all skin types and since I know that there are a lot of benefits that we can get from argan oil, I chose this variant. Unexpectedly, when I arrived home, I saw a post from an Influencer promoting Aztec Secret’s soaps and there, I was able to know that this soap is good for dry skin. My skin is oily! I was shocked but I still used the soap because I already bought it and I was hoping that it will still work on me.

After less than a week of using Aztec Secret soap, I decided to stop. The reason is simple. I got breakouts and my skin got more oily. This soap didn’t work on me but that does not directly mean that this soap won’t work on you as well. Maybe it’s just because this is advisable for dry skin. We all have different skin types, conditions and issues, so our skin reacts to products differently. I am only sharing my experience with the soap and I do not intend to harm the brand. This post is for review purposes only.

Final Verdict:

2/5

Will I repurchase?

No

Prititit’20

Cebu’s most awaited festival for Sto. Nino devotees, street photographers and as well as party-goers had finally happened! We may all have different plans for the festival but I hope everyone had a great time.

For the first time, I tried shooting in the grand parade and for the first time, I was able to use a 50-230 mm lens. Ever since I joined the school publication, I always dreamed of being able to try using a zoom lens and finally, it happened.

To cut off my introduction and without making this long, here are my shots for this year’s Sinulog Grand Festival.

Review: MISSHA Airy Fit Sheet Mask in Potato

Review: MISSHA Airy Fit Sheet Mask in Potato

The moment I saw this mask, I was reminded by the time when Bok Joo in Weightlifting Fairy tried the DIY potato mask. Raise your hands if you’ve seen that show haha kidding. It was a cute episode and if you want to read about it, you may click here. Of course, this mask is way different from what Bok Joo used but aren’t you curious about how a potato mask works since the use of potato in skincare products is still not that common in the public?

Product Description:

Potato extract brightens pigmentation and soothes sensitive skin.

2019_1216_20542500.jpg

Claims:

  • Perfect adhesion like a glutinous rice cake
  • Skin-fit daily sheet mask to deliver active ingredients to the skin effectively by sticky adhesion
  • Containing potato extract with rich vitamin for dark skin due to external stimulus, it helps to make skin radiant and soothe the sensitive skin

My thoughts:

According to its description, this mask claims to improve skin pigmentation and it soothes the skin. Yes, it soothes and moisturized my skin but since I only have one sheet, I can’t see any improvement for my skin pigmentations. If I continue using this, maybe there will be an effect but we never know. Overall, this is a good mask to try. I love the consistency, it’s not drippy unlike most of the mask that is available in the market.

wp-1577888384328.jpg

What I like about this product?

  • Mask sheet is smooth
  • It fits well on my face
  • Consistency is not runny, it is creamy

What I don’t like about this product?

  • Takes time to fully absorb on the skin because of its thick consistency

Unfortunately, I was not able to take a photo before using the sheet mask but this is how my skin looks like after applying the mask.

Final Verdict:

4/5

Will I repurchase?

Yes

My 5 Favorite 2019 Fashion Trends

My 5 Favorite 2019 Fashion Trends

This year, I made changes and improvements in my style. As much as possible, I try to shop more often at thrift or ukay and I only shop at retail stores when needed. I can proudly say that this year, I am not a fashion victim. I became more careful with what I buy and when to buy things. So, before the year ends, let me share with you my top five favorite fashion trends for this year.

Chains

Just in time when the year is about to end, I discovered a new accessory that I did not expect that I will love, the chains. It can be everywhere, from earrings, belts and obviously, necklaces. If you’re a K-pop fan you would definitely see a lot of artists wearing different chains for accessories but for this trend, I think the word K-fashion is vague, so let’s just use the word E-girl. If you have a Tiktok account, you would not miss knowing what is an “E-girl.” The emo before is now called E-girl/E-boy but this time, there’s a starter kit for this style lol.

Pearl/Beads

Pearl/beads are not only for accessories because you can now see pearl/beaded bags and tops. I am not a fan of beaded tops because I think it’s not necessary especially when you don’t have big events or fashion events to attend to and you only commute but I am loving the trend of beaded bags. They can be expensive, of course, because they are handmade but trust me when I say they are just not “cute” because beaded bags add a “pop” on a boring outfit.

Biker Shorts

Style over comfort? Why opt for one when you can do both? Admit it, sometimes we sacrifice our comfort for the sake of fashion but isn’t it great to wear something comfortable but at the same time look fashionable? Through the years, athleisure continues to grow. I did not expect it to stay but I am definitely living for it. I can still remember the time when I was new to athleisure, it was three years ago and I made a post in this style, click here if you want to check it.

Cardigan

The cardigan game is strong this year. I can see bloggers or influencers wearing cardigans as top whole year-round. Wearing a cardigan as a top gives the look a 90’s vintage “soft girl” style.

Square necklines

From the usual round neck, we moved to v-neck, and now we have the square neckline. This style is most commonly seen in the ladies’ section. It is flattering for every body type and I love how this style gives so much vintage feels to the outfit.

Coincidence

Coincidence

Writing an outfit post is not always that easy. There are times where I just want to post the photos because I can’t think of anything to write and there are also times where my head is full of ideas but I just can’t put it into words. In times like that, I usually check other people’s blogs or read my previous posts for some inspiration. While I was scrolling my own posts, I was astonished by what I saw. Well, the color coordination with my last outfit post is the same with this post. “Suit Up” is my 2019 welcoming year outfit post and this post might be my year-ender. What a coincidence.

 

Anyway, today marks as my fourth year in blogging. Happy anniversary to my blog!

Review: So Natural Ph 5.5 Red Peel Tingle Serum

Review: So Natural Ph 5.5 Red Peel Tingle Serum

When I received an Instagram dm from @seoulunnie_official saying that I can choose a product from them to review, I then went to their website to check their products because it’s my first time to hear about this brand. At first, I thought that it’s just another Korean skincare brand but when I was scrolling through their website, I was able to discover a lot of products that I would love to try and as of now, they are continuing to release new products in the market. Well, you might probably ask why did I choose this product. My answer to that is simple, it’s my first time to hear about a wash-off type of serum. So, I told myself to give it a try!

Product Description:

So Natural Peel Tingle Serum is a chemical exfoliator that removes dead skin cells and prepares the skin to absorb the products of the next skincare routine step. Its an exfoliator in a serum form!

Price:

Php 1,580.00

Net Weight:

35 ml

0000_0000_00000000(2115) (1).jpg

Consistency:

Watery, not sticky and easy to apply.

Packaging:

The product looks expensive and I can say that you are truly paying for its price. The print looks elegant and the glass bottle of it looks like it won’t break easily.

Scent:

The scent reminds me of wine or berries. I’m not used to products that have this kind of scent but its bearable.

0000_0000_00000000(223).jpg

How to Use?

Apply a generous amount on dry skin after cleansing, gently massage and wash off with water within 30-60 seconds. Use 2-3 times a day.

My Thoughts:

It’s true to its name, it does tingle especially when you have breakouts and apply a generous amount on the skin but don’t worry because it’s not bad at all. The tingling effect only lasts for a few seconds on your first few uses and right after rinsing, my face feels clean, clear, bright and smooth. It deep cleansed my face but it does not feel dry at all.

0000_0000_00000000(2113) (1).jpg

Final Verdict:

5/5

Will I recommend it?

Yes, if you’re not a fan of using acids, at first you will obviously be having doubts but there’s no harm in trying especially when you do your research.

Review: Purederm Hydro Soothing Cucumber pads

Review: Purederm Hydro Soothing Cucumber pads

Everyone knows that cucumber is good for the skin especially on the eyes but if there’s an alternative that won’t consume your time in preparing, would you still want to use the real cucumber or the alternative? Lazy gals who wants to achieve healthy skin might prefer the alternative but of course, we also have to test the quality of the alternative.

Purederm Hydro Soothing Cucumber Pads are pre-moistened with real cucumber pads soothe tired, stressed eyes and help reduce puffiness and dark circles.

Sheets:

10 pcs

Packaging:

The packaging is simple, small and straightforward.

Product Smell:

It has a cucumber scent that smells a bit artificial.

Performance:

Upon opening the product, I then noticed that there is only minimal essence and the pads are thick. So, while using the pads, I already had thoughts in my head but after application, I realized that my thoughts were correct. Since you have to put in on your eye area for a few minutes, I had a hard time using this one because whenever I move, it kept on falling even if I move slowly lol. Unlike other pads that mostly have a lot of essence in it, I think the reason why there is only a minimal essence is because it says that we will put this on the eye area and our eyes are sensitive. Nevertheless, I left like there is really inadequate amount of essence that’s why after using, nothing happened.


Note: I placed the pads below the eye area for selfie purposes only. I felt a bit extra that’s why I applied on the forehead haha.

What I like about this product?

  • Packaging is perfect for travelling
  • Cute pads, perfect for aesthetic
  • Zipbag container

What I don’t like about this product?

  • Not effective on me

Final Verdict:

2/5 because pads are cute lol.

Will I recommend it?

Since it did nothing on me, I won’t recommend this product but I suggest you to try using real cucumber because for me, it’s better and cheaper.

Where did I buy the product?

Review: Berrisom Water Bomb Jelly Mask Pore Care

Review: Berrisom Water Bomb Jelly Mask Pore Care

Masks are so mainstream right now and with the wide variety of masks, brands have to be creative so that they can innovate more options for the consumers. Today, I tried a different mask, its a sheet mask but its not the usual because the essence of this one is jelly.Claims:Pore care mask with jelly essence controls the moisture and refine the pore.Packaging:The packaging is really cute and the print makes it look expensive.Product Smell:It has a lime scent that honestly, reminds me of a car fragrance but when you apply the mask on your face, you won’t be able to smell the fragrance.Performance:The consistency is not runny at all because obviously, it is jelly-like and because of its consistency, it takes time for it to absorb but the long wait is definitely worth the wait! I honestly did not expect that this mask will do great on my skin especially on it’s pore claim but surprisingly, it does its claims. It instantly moisten and smoothen my skin and it also refined some of my pores.

My skin after using the mask. 

What I like about this product?

  • The mask perfectly fits my face
  • Not runny
  • Gives an instant glow
  • Refreshen my face
  • Helped my pores
  • Effective!

What I don’t like about this product?

  • Nothing!

Final Verdict:5/5!Will I recommend it?Yes. As a regular student on a budget, this mask is already considered as expensive for me but I won’t mind spending a penny with this mask because the performance says it all!Where did I buy the product?Dara Beauty
