Deoproce Bubble Brightening Mask

October 26, 2014

Monday is such a fresh start! This is like the best day to go back to basics and to switch things up a bit when it comes to skin care.

It's no secret that I have been freakishly obsessing over Korean Skin Care Products. I googled a few brands and stumbled across Deoproce. The name sounds new to my ears but my curious brain tells me that I should give this a try. So I did a bit more research and found out that this mask is one of their best sellers. Immediately, I contacted their company to give their products a try and in less than a week I have my own bottle of  the O2 Bubble Brightening Mask.

It claims that it does 4 things like:

1. Deeply Cleanse the skin
2. Whiten dark spots and acne marks
3. Minimize the appearance of enlarged pores
4. Control excess oil

This is one of the few Korean Skin Care Products that actually has English instructions written on the packaging. Yehey for that!

So here's how it looks like... It comes on silky and smooth. but once you rub the product on the rest of the skin... Magic happens...

It bubbles up on its own. The longer you leave it in, the more froth it will produce. If you want to see how I apply this on my face, check out the video below.

What I love about the mask is its technology of self cleansing. It cleanses own its own leaving your skin smooth and supple. The smell isn't funky too. It has that cottony smell and a hint of an herbal scent infused in the product.

Right after you wash the product off, you might notice a bit of redness, but don't bother. It's just a minor skin reaction to the deep cleansing technology of the mask. You'll also see that after a few hours, your face will be less likely to get oily.

It is recommended to use this 2-3x  a week to prevent any sin irritation.

If you have tried the product, let me know how it works for you. Please feel free to comment below.

Nu Skin AgeLoc Gentle Cleanse & Tone

October 21, 2014
It’s no wonder that the secret to great skin starts at the basics, CLEANSING.  Cleansing is the very first step you must do in order to ensure a healthy looking skin. Before you decide to slather on all sorts of anti-aging products,  make sure that you are cleaning your face thoroughly.

So here I share a breakthrough product that will forever change your face cleansing routine.
NuSkin AgeLoc Gentle Cleanse & Tone is a 2-in-1 product that will reveal fresh and pure skin. It gently cleanses, purifies, and hydrates skin, preparing it to receive advanced anti-aging ingredients. The dual-action  formula works gently at skin’s own natural healthy pH, combining cleansing and toning into a single step while leaving skin looking refreshed and youthful.

Directions: Moisten face with warm water. Place 3 pumps on finger tips and gently massage face, avoiding contact with eyes. Rinse with water and pat dry.

What I love about the product is that it pumps out froth that you can directly massage on your face making skin cleansing experience so invigorating and refreshing.
Due to its price, I use it sparingly. I use this twice a week during maintenance day both on my morning and night routine. (Would you like to see a maintenance day video? Let me know down the comment secion)

Ara's Secret Skin Glow

October 15, 2014

Well hello there! If you are obsessing over having "fair" skin, this post is worth the read. So a few weeks ago, I saw this episode on Kris TV and the featured some beauty products by Ara Mina. That segment was quite short but long enough to convince me to give the product a try.

I sent them a message over on facebook to see if I can feature them on my blog. I immediately ordered a few items and I was given the recommendation that I should start with their best sellers.  Tadah! take a look at these bad boys! The Skin Glow Lightening Scrub and the 3-in-1 Soap.

I love how they made sure that 3 active ingredients such as Kojic, Glutathione and Calamansi are present in every product. Kojic acid inhibits melonasis by interfering with the uptake of oxygen required for enzymatic browning. In normal language, that just means it prevents your skin to urn brown.The strong antioxidant effect of glutathione helps keep cells running smoothly which makes it easier to shed skin. This results to newer brighter skin all the time. And lastly, calamansi is nature's wonder. This is a natural bleaching agent, promoting fairer skin.

Don't leave me hanging here! Watch the video below to hear more about the products! Oh! Join the giveaway as well... Have a good one!  ^_^

Envie AesthetiCare and Medspa Experience

October 7, 2014

A few weeks ago, I was invited by Envie AesthetiCare and Medspa to try out some of their breakthrough beauty services. They let me chose which service I would like to try out and they also did a few suggestions of what is perfect for me. After much discussion, I decided to try out their RF Facial Contouring and Cavitation.

Let me just give you a bit of a background of what RF Contouring is. RF Contouring employs Radio Frequency (RF) energy to reduce cellulite for multiple areas of the body. In my case I chose my facial area so I can get that noticeable fat reduction. I also asked the aesthetician to  focus on the jaw area to make it more defined.

Here are some of the cool machinery in their spa. I felt like I was at a Futuristic SciFi movie set. Although the machines that they use seem to be overwhelming and scary, their staff makes it a point that the moment you enter their spa you get that VIP treatment.

Let me just give you a bit of a background of what RF Contouring is. RF Contouring employs Radio Frequency (RF) energy to reduce cellulite for multiple areas of the body. In my case I chose my facial area so I can get that noticeable fat reduction. I also asked the aesthetician to  focus on the jaw area to make it more defined.

This deep tissue heating increases the metabolic breakdown of fat cells (or adipocytes) in the superficial fat layer and increases the diffusion of oxygen in the cells. At the same time, the vacuum therapy intensifies the treatment to facilitate deeper penetration of heat, stimulate lymphatic drainage and enhance the elasticity of the body layers (or septae).

If partnered with Ultrasound Cavitation, the results will be more amazing. This treatment  is a relatively new aesthetic treatment.  Using leading edge technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system.

When the treatment of ultrasound cavitation is followed by a lymphatic drainage the process is faster, as the drainage is very effective at eliminating liquids.

Generally one fat cavitation treatment lasts 35 – 40 minutes where a single part of the body is treated.  72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat. The minimum suggested number of fat cavitation sessions is between 6 and 10.

And at the end of the session, a seductive after shot must be done...(hence the awkward pose..hehe) You will definitely see noticeable results after each visit. It felt light and my skin is actually tightened and invigorated.

Minute Monday: V&M Naturals

October 5, 2014

Today on Minute Monday, I will put the spot light to the star of my week.... ORGANIC BEAUTY PRODUCTS!!! So here's a quick haul! yehey!

I am a big fan of all natural products. 'Coz why not? We live in a 21st era where almost every thing is synthetic and artificial. I could say that finding beauty products made from natural ingredients is like finding the golden pot of joy at the end of every rainbow. 

So here are some beauty products I love because of the brand's advocacy of going au naturel all the way.

All V&M products are made from scratch using only the finest oils and herb to create an all- natural experience. No pre-made bases, sulfates, surfactants, alcohol, sugar solutions and parabens are used. V&M Naturals follows only 100% pure and premium oil recipes.

Inspired by age-old beauty rituals, we bridge the world through wondrous products that deliver, while empowering it with the beneficial effects it brings to the people and environment.

V&M Naturals simply means goodness for your skin.

Taking a sniff from this bar of soap reminds me of that alluring smell at Lush. Just take a look at the ingredients in it.  Waaahhh! All that essential oils on your skin? And sure enough it can be used a substitute for a shaving cream. A 2-in-1 product eh?!

This body butter is my favorite among all the products I have tried. I like to rub this right after every shower while the skin is still damp. I can't seem to figure it out but the way my skin absorbs this is just amazing. It doesn't feel greasy nor is it sticky. Maybe I should blame it all on that Emu Oil, huh? 

If you have been to my Youtube channel, you have probably seen those nasty Halloween tutorials. Oh come on check them out! Hurry! There! Now that you are back... I'm so inlove with this lip and cheek tint because its so light and natural looking on the skin and lips.

My skin care routine, may it be morning or night, should religiously include this lip balm. The peppermint scent captivates your senses and it sorta reminiscent of spa aroma therapy sets.

The last product is this mineral blush that applies so heavenly on my chubby cheeks!

V&M Naturals are available on all leading department stores. Please feel free to test out these products and let me know about your experience below.

Thirsty Thursday: Detox Water

October 1, 2014

We all know that our body is most likely composed of 75% water. Having said that, it just makes perfect sense that we continually replenish this element to keep our bodies functioning. 

Today I share with you my at home easy Detox Water Recipe!!! Yey! 

For more info, check out these 10 REASONS why you should give it a try:

1. Promotes Fresher Breath

We don't want any dragon breath girlfriends! Detox Water contains mint leaves, cucumber and lemon  that will certainly leave you with fresh breath. Those ingredients stabilizes the level of acidity  and ph in the mouth.

2. Ensures balanced pH Levels in the Body

While it seems like a counter-intuitive move, drinking fresh lemon juice is actually good for maintaining a balanced pH level in the body. Most people assume that lemons are highly acidic, when in fact they have incredible alkalizing properties.

3. Improves digestive function

Detox water helps in keeping the digestive system on tract, which allows food to be digested properly (and more quickly). This is highly beneficial to those who often suffer from indigestion, bloating, and heartburn, all of which can be painful and inconvenient.

4. Strengthened immune system

Detox water aids in keeping the immune system alert and strong against malaldies such as common colds and the flu. The adage “prevention is better than cure” could not be more true in this case because people can very well avoid these types of ailments if they take better care of their health.

5. Promotes skin repair

Haven't you noticed that lately, skin care brands are infusing their products with natural ingredients derived from lemons, cucumbers and more? So imagine drinking the benefits of those instead of slathering them on your skin? The process of detoxing allows proper cell regeneration, which then manifests by way of glowing and younger looking skin. Vitamin C also promotes the production of collagen, which is a type of protein that is responsible for the skin’s elasticity. It is a well known fact that skin elasticity begins to decline once a person hit 40 (or sooner for some people depending on their genes and lifestyle). Drinking a glass of water with lemon juice daily is more preferable to getting a face lift because it is all-natural and it costs next to nothing. People who have not been taking care of their skin well over the years should start this simple morning ritual and get reap the benefits outright.

6. Cleanses and revitalizes the urinary tract

Water is a natural diuretic , making a daily habit of drinking it ensures that you have a cleaner (and more functional) urinary tract. In the long run, this would also have cumulative detoxing effects since the body disposes waste materials through urine. Flushing out liquid waste at a much faster rate reduces the risk of accumulating bacteria in the body, thus preventing a number of diseases such as urinary tract infection and many others.

7. Detoxifies the liver

The liver is the body’s primary cleaner, which means it shoulders a lot of grunt work in order to keep the entire system from shutting down. For people who live less than healthy lives, the liver often needs help to clean up all the sludge and regain the body’s status quo. Drinking lemon water daily ensures the increased production of bile, which is a substance necessary for digestion. 

8. Promotes faster healing and regeneration

Vitamin C happens to be one of the most important components in cell regeneration, which is a necessary step in keeping the body healthy. A healthy supply of vitamin C ensures stronger bones and teeth, healthier skin, better eyesight, and better joints. The body heals itself on a daily basis (during REM sleep), but it can always use the extra boost, especially for people advancing in years.

9. Effectively curbs appetite

For people who are desperately trying to lose weight but are often overcome by nagging cravings and urges to binge, the daily lemon juice-water routine is a great trick to use. Not many people are aware that lemon juice works well in terms of curbing a person’s appetite, thereby allowing him/her to effectively lose weight. In fact, most at-home detox diets involve the use of freshly squeezed lemon juice, which is not only good for getting rid of toxins but also for reducing appetite for solid foods. The lemon juice allows you to feel full and satisfied for longer periods, which eliminates snacking in-between meals.

10. Improved overall health and wellbeing

Lemon juice simply brings countless health benefits, such as lowered cholesterol levels, normalized blood pressure, reduced blood sugar level, and improved blood flow. In addition, it also helps avoid depression and anxiety so your mental health can benefit from the daily lemon water routine as well.
It is amazing how one glass of water with lemon juice can change people’s lives, if they only keep up with the daily habit. Starting today would certainly be a great idea.
