Hi guys! I miss writing here in my blog and I know you miss it too! I hope you guys are having an amazing day as always. I have been really busy juggling work and personal life. But you know me, I will always make time for skincare haha. So today, I will share with you another product review from the brand Hyacinth.
Hyacinth is a growing local skincare brand here in the Philippines. They offer affordable quality products from skincare to body care. They have lots of distributors nationwide and a lot of people are loving their products which is why the brand is creating a buzz in the online world.

As promised, I will share with you my review of the products that I personally picked and tried. Per usual, this will be an honest review because you deserve to know if this brand is worth the hype or not. :)

So let's start with:


Price: P150.00
Size: 135 grams

It is a miracle-healing soap that makes the skin healthy and hydrated. It protects the skin from all types of diseases making it radiant and flawless.

This one is really interesting because it is my first time using a Himalayan salt-based soap. Himalayan salt is believed to help improve circulation and detoxify the skin. This salt can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, and even dandruff. I have very dry skin and eczema and yes, this product works.

First of all, for a bar soap, this is not drying. Since I have flaky skin, I avoid using cleansers or soap that is way too drying. Thanks to its ingredients such as coconut and jojoba oil, this soap didn't strip the moisture of my skin. It also contains skin loving ingredients such as niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, vitamin c,e, glycolic and lactic acid, and tea tree. I even tried on my face and it's good too! This has been an instant fave from the brand! This I recommend if you also have skin issues because it works!

Next is the


Price: P330.00
Size: 300 grams

It is a cocoa butter-infused formula that contains a blend of physical exfoliants. If I am not mistaken, this kind of no-rinse scrub is first in the market. It contains great ingredients such as glycerin, triglycerides, kaolin, glutathione, niacinamide, vitamin c, and vitamin e. Before trying this product, I thought it will be itchy on my skin since it is a no-rinse formula but I was wrong. It feels very comfortable, lightweight, and creamy on the skin. I noticed that my skin is glowing every after use of this product. I also love how my skin is so soft and supple.

This one is great if you want to achieve whiter and glowing skin. It's good for face and body too!


Price: P240.00
Size: 120 ml

This lotion contains brightening ingredients such as vitamin b3 also known as niacinamide, aha or alpha hydroxy acid, and lactic acid. It is also moisturizing because it contains mineral oils.

You know I am a huge fan of body lotion as I featured so much here in our blog already. For someone with very dry skin, this is a must for me. It has everything that I am looking for in a body lotion. It is lightweight, non-sticky, very comfortable on the skin, and smells really good! I honestly enjoy using this lotion and it is part of my nightly routine already.

That's it! Overall, I am so impressed by the brand Hyacinth and it is one of the brands that I can personally recommend if you are looking for affordable yet good-quality skincare products.

Apart from these products that I tried, they also have a lot of great products. You may visit their website https://www.hyacinthglassskin.com/shop or like them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hyacinthglassskin to order and know more about the brand.

As a skincare enthusiast, I love talking to people with the same interest and passion as mine. Last February 5, 2021, I was privileged to talk with the internationally renowned skin expert, the beautiful, Ms. Olivia Quido. She's a Filipina who owns OSkin Med Spa located in Cerritos California and another one in Los Angeles.

Apart from having skin clinics, Ms. O also established her own skincare line called Olivia Quido Skincare. This world-famous skincare line was carefully formulated by doctors and experts including, of course, Ms. O herself. And because of the success of her clinic and skincare line, Ms. O also took the opportunity to release her own collection of luxury home pieces named Olivia Quido Home Collections. Her collection is now being sold in luxury stores in the USA such as Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and Martha Stewart Shop to name a few. Like, wow! She's truly an inspiration! isn't she?

During my talk with her, I was able to ask her a few questions and I want to share her answers because I learned a lot from her and I want to share the learnings with you.

How OSkin started?

She said that ever since she was young, she loves anything beautiful including beauty products. When she went abroad, she needed a side hustle so she studied cosmetology, and later on got her license as an esthetician. That's when she started her own clinic. She said she's the happiest whenever she makes someone prettier because of her services and products.

Was it hard to start your own career abroad as a Filipina?

She said that it was indeed hard because of the processes that she had to go through. Also, getting a license abroad was like going through a hole of a needle because of their high and strict standards in the health and beauty industry. But because of her passion, she was able to successfully overcome the challenges.

How's the business during Pandemic?

The clinic was re-opened amidst the pandemic implementing strict health protocols with her advanced equipment for the safety of her clients and staff.

Also, during this challenging time, her beauty products online are continuously blooming as people from around the globe are ordering Olivia Quido Skincare.

What makes Oskin Different?

According to her, once you stepped into her clinic, you will experience a complete pampering session as she will surely satisfy all of your five senses. The first thing that you will see is the beautiful interior of her clinic combined with a relaxing fragrance to calm and make you feel welcome. They also have food and drinks to offer to their guests. Most importantly, their estheticians are well-trained to make you more beautiful or handsome. They went through very strict training to make sure that everything is done perfectly.

As to her skincare products, the edge of her brand is the research and time they put into making each product. It takes them a year or two to develop one product because they want to make sure its efficacy and also they take time to conduct a stability test so people can get the most out of their money.

No wonder, Olivia Quido skincare products are being patronized by beauty queens and Hollywood actors.

Ms. Olivia also shared that the secret to her success is her love for the lord. She shared with us the importance of giving back to the Lord, praising him, and putting him first in everything that we do. I couldn’t agree more! She's indeed a beautiful soul.

If you guys are interest to try Olivia Quido Skincare products, they are available in their official online store: https://www.oskinmedspa.com/

You can also follow them on Facebook and Instagram: https://facebook.com/oskinmedspa/https://www.instagram.com/oskincareph/ I am also about to try her products so stay tuned for the full detailed review very soon!

Garnier Vitamin C Serum Review

by 6:58 PM

I received a lot of requests to review this new product of 

First of all, I like idea of putting the vit c serum in a plastic foil like this because it protects the vitamin c from oxidizing. Although, they also have one in a glass bottle dropper.

I am truly amazed by its key ingredients. They mixed Niacinamide with Vitamin C. Although there was an old study that Niacinamide can't be mixed with Vit c, there's no clear evidence proving that. The truth of the matter is mixing Vit c and Niacinamide can be beneficial for our skin.

When I first tried the product (patch test), I experienced redness and itchiness. I knew from the start that it's sensitizing because of the ingredients. I still gave it a try tho because there were some products that I tried before containing fragrances and didn't cause irritation on my skin. But yeah, this one is highly sensitizing I must say because of its other actives.

It contains parfum, lemon oil extract, benzyl salicylate (fragrance), citrus oil, and alcohols. Those are extremely sensitizing even if you don't have sensitive skin. Most specifically lemon oil and citrus oil. Oh no! 😱

I am honestly disappointed with this product and I don't recommend it.

It has been more than a month since I started taking the Relumins Oral Acne Treatment. In my last blog post, I discussed what this product is and its benefits. If you haven't read it yet, you may click here. To give you an idea, Relumins Oral Acne is a supplement packed with amazing ingredients to help reduce acne breakout and excessive oil production.

Here are the things that you need to know:

Where to buy?

My experience

Honestly, I am not new to oral acne supplement. However, what makes this product special is the added ingredients. It contains essential vitamins that makes us healthy. The first thing that I noticed about this product is, it's making me sleepy early at night. I would usually go to bed by 2AM flipping side to side, finding the best position to feel sleepy. When I started taking this product, I noticed that I 'm dozing off at around 11PM. Woah! That's way too early for me lol! The good thing is, I am not having a hard time to fall asleep.

When it comes to its main purpose (reducing acne breakout), I can say that this product is really working. And I am honestly not surprised. There were clinical studies conducted proving that its ingredients are beneficial to those people with acne-prone skin.

Although I don't get as much acne as before, I noticed that my pimple heals faster than ever when I started taking this supplement. It also prevents future breakouts because I rarely get pimples from the time I took this product. Amazing! The best part? Since I have oily combination skin, I noticed that I get less oily especially on my T-Zone. Although, I can still see oil it's still peeking through, but it's not as shiny as it used to be! Good job!

I don't know but I also think this supplement gives me glow that I usually get when I'm taking glutathione or collagen supplement. Maybe because it contains Vitamin E (which is known to its repairing properties) and Vitamin C that can boost our immune system as well as glutathione production in our system. The Relumins Oral Acne Treatment is indeed a beauty supplement in my personal opinion!

All in all, I think it's a nice product to try if you are suffering from acne breakout. It's safe, FDA approved, and contains a lot of beneficial ingredients.

How to know your skin type (PHILIPPINES)

by 10:50 PM


Do you know your skin type? I bet a lot of you are still confuse which skin type you have. In today's blog post, I will be helping you out to determine which skin type you have. It is important for you to know your skin type because every skin type reacts differently to each ingredients. Some products might not be the best products for your skin. Which is why knowing your skin type is extremely essential for your skin care.

In order for you to know your skin type, let us do this simple steps.

First, use a gentle cleanser and foam it up to your hand and gently rub it across your face for about 30 to 45 seconds before rinsing.

Second, after cleansing your face, pat dry and wait for about an hour and let it rest. Make sure not to apply any product or moisturizer during this time.

Third, after about an hour look in front of the mirror and examine your skin.


If you notice that your skin is greasy or shiny in most areas especially around your nose area and cheeks then you have an oily skin type.  Oily skin happens when the sebaceous glands produce too much sebum. Sebum is an oily and waxy substance found in our skin.

SOLUTION: Look for products that contains  the following ingredients:

  • Salicylic Acid - exfoliates skin, unclog pores, anti-inflammatory and has antibacterial properties.
  • Hyaluronic Acid & Glycerin - Keeps your skin hydrated, it works by attracting water from the environment into the skin.
  • Bentonite -  this clay helps remove sebum, or oil from the skin’s surface it may also have a calming effect on inflamed breakouts.
  • Benzoyl Peroxide - exfoliates skin, kills the bacteria that causes acne though this can also cause dryness and irritation that is why it is best used as a spot treatment only.
  • Retinol - Brightens dull skin by exfoliating at a cellular level, which results in brighter and smoother new skin. Regulate oily skin and minimize breakouts. Fades dark age spots, sun spots and hyperpigmentation and even out complexion over time.
  • Centella Asiatica - provides just the right amount of moisture that your skin needs. It hydrates the skin and also keeps the oiliness away.


  • Mineral Oil
  • Petrolatum Alcohol


If your skin feels tight and stripped and notice some flakiness or tiny lines whenever you make a facial expression then you have a dry skin type. People may experience dry skin on their face as a result of many factors such as changes in temperature or humidity, using harsh skin care products and skin conditions such as eczema.

SOLUTION: Look for products that contains the following ingredients:

  • Hyaluronic Acid & Glycerin - Keeps your skin hydrated, works by attracting water from the environment into the skin.
  • Centella Asiatica - Provides just the right amount of moisture that your skin needs. It hydrates the skin and also keeps the oiliness away.
  • Ceramides - Lipid (fats) that naturally in skin, it helps the skin by forming a protective layer to help prevent moisture loss and visible damage form environmental stressors. Ceramides also help to keep your skin supple.
  • Antioxidants -Helps skin repair itself,  protects your skin and reduce pigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles.


    • Retinoid
    • Benzoyl Peroxide
    • Alcohols
    • Salicylic Acid
    • Fragrances and Preservatives


    If you notice that your skin in some areas of your face has shiny spots typically within the T-ZONE area (forehead, nose and chin) and feels tight or flaky on certain area then you have a combination skin type. Several factors contribute to the development of combination skin, but sometimes it's just genetics. Other causes of combination skin are out of your control like the weather and your age.

    SOLUTION: Look for products that contains the following ingredients:

    Hyaluronic Acid - It hydrates and smooths the skin and is able to fight both oiliness and dryness

    AHA/BHA - Exfoliate your skin and help cleanse your skin of excess oil or debris while killing the bacteria that causes acne. 

    Niacinamide - this ingredient is actually good for all skin types. Repairs damage skin, neutralize free radical that can cause skin cancer and the breakdown of collagen and elastin. It also increases the production of ceramides, improves skin discoloration, anti-inflammatory, decrease oil production and reduce the appearance of visible pores. 


    Normal skin is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced skin not too dry not too oily, normal skin has zero to few imperfections, less likely to break out, pores are normal size not too large not to small, feels soft and supple, less irritation, no rough texture or flakiness. If you have this kind of skin type then CONGRATULATIONS you are BLESSED.

    If you have normal skin, do not be complacent. Cleanse, tone, moisturize, and never ever forget to wear sunblock. You should also consider using antioxidant serum to prevent collagen breakdown and signs of aging. Your skin is already balanced so your focus should be on prevention and maintenance.

    So there your go I hope I was able to help you out finding your skin type.
