by 7:06 PM
I wanna say sorry guys for this super late review. I know I promised to share you my experience using this cushion few months back so here I am trying to fulfill my promise and yeah it's absolutely late but it's better to be late than never. 😊

Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract - Vitamin C helps brighten and purify skin tone.
Jeju Aloe Vera Leaf - Provides long lasting nutrition and moisture.
Euterpe Oleracea - Helps prevent skin from aging and skin oxidation, providing a vibrant luminous skin. 

Where to buy?

How much?

I was as excited as a kid seeing a bucket of candies when I first saw this cushion in my package because I've been wanting to try it for quite some time now. I've been hearing positive feedback about this product from different bloggers and vloggers so yeah! I'm so happy I got to try it. 😊

Gladly, the product doesn't have strong smell in it. Knowing it's a Korean brand, I was expecting a perfume-like fragrance like most KBeauty products have but I'm glad it doesn't have that smell. Just like any other BB and CC cushions, it has a compartment  for its fluppy sponge.

I just don't like that the packaging of this product is kinda bulky for my liking. It's made of sleek black case with its label printed on top and that's it. It is that simple same as its textured box (printed with korean stuff that I really can't read).

I think the sponge that it came with blends the product pretty decent on my face. I sooooo loovveee the coverage of April Skin Snow Cushion guys. Promise! It's a full coverage cushion and I like it! It covers my dark spots and redness around my face very nicely. It's also so easy to blend wether you're using its puff or your favorite brush.
Amazing coverage: Used 1 thin layer to cover my blemishes and redness

In terms of longevity, it lasts! I can wear the product the whole day knowing that I have an oily combination skin, the product stays intact. However, I noticed that the product tends to cake specially on my nose area. It's settling like tiny particles huhuhu. So make sure to have a good powder for touch ups and it will surely solve the problem.p
It cakes on my nose after 7 hours. The blemishes are slightly visible already but it still covers my skin very nicely.

I didn't experience breakouts using this product and I also like the fact that it has SPF 50. It's perfect for our weather here in the Philippines. The downside of its high sun protection is a white cast on flash photography. That won't hinder me from buying the product though. Aside from that, the cushion itself is sucking all the liquid formula inside making my cushion super dry. That's a waste of product and so the money. (That's only when you open it and will not use product for a long time.)

Look: The cushion itself is drying

What I like:
• Amazing coverage
• Doesn't have strong smell
• High SPF
• It lasts
• Easy to blend
• Shade is perfect for my complexion
• It somehow cover the pores

What I don't like:
• It cakes after you oil up
• Bulky packaging
• The cushion itself is sucking the liquid formula making it dry

All in all, this is a great cushion and I highly recommend it specifically if you're like me who's always in a hurry. You can just tap tap tap this cushion on your face even if you're in the car and you're good to go with a well toned fully concealed face.

San San HD Concealer Review

by 7:05 PM
Having dark under eyes is not flattering at all. Thankfully, I don't have very dark under eyes (then why I am writing this review? πŸ˜‚) However, I still put  (sometimes) concealer under my eyes just to create a fresher look because sometimes I look haggard specially when I didn't get enough sleep.

San San HD Concealer Review

This San San HD Concealer covers skin imperfections and achieves photo finish look. No fears, just fierce!

Ingredients: Aqua, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Titanium Dioxide, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamte, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Isononyl Isononanoate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Talc (and) Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Beeswax, Cyclopentasiloxane, Phenoxyethanol, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Caprylyl Glycol (and) Ethylhexylglycerin May contain: CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499

Where to buy?
HBC Stores nationwide

How much?

First of all, I love that this San San HD concealer is loaded with different vitamins just like their other makeups. I think that's their trademark and they're known for having makeups with vitamins so I salute San San for that.

The first downside of this product for me is the smell. I don't know if it's because of the vitamins and minerals in it but I am really not a fan of its fragrance. It smells like chemical for me. That won't hinder me from using the product though. The smell disappears in just a minute or two anyway.

The product is very blendable and easy to set. Yes, it dries quickly so you should be fast doing it or else it will cake. The shade, Beige suits well on my skin and it makes my under eyes looking fresh and it creates an illusion like I've had enough sleep haha. Since the product is thick, my technique is applying just few dots under my eyes (because a little goes a long way) and blend it very nicely using my favorite beauty blender or finger tips.

I am so impressed with its coverage and lasting power and I swear, I can wear it the whole day without touching up. I love how it makes me look fresh and more handsome  (at least for me lol). I am also amazed by its packaging. As you can see, the product comes in a pen type container and it also has a brush applicator which I super love.

What I like:
• Coverage
• Affordable
• Easy to find
• Contains vitamins
• It lasts
• Easy to blend
• Genius packaging
• Brush applicator

What I don't like:
• Thick
• Smell
• Cakey (if not blended well)

All in all, I highly recommend using this concealer because it's really effective in hiding dark under eyes and some blemishes. Aside from it's affordable, it is also manufactured by a trusted cosmetics company, HBC. This is my current favorite concealer to be honest and I encourage you to try it too. 😊

Opulence Ultra White Protect Glow Booster Body Lotion with SPF30 Review

by 6:05 PM
Hello awesome people of the universe! How's it going? I have been so busy working on random things plus my bank was hacked online so my mind was literally flying over the clouds. Guys be careful when you're like me who loves purchasing online using Visa card. Please be extra careful because a lot of hackers and money launderers are just around the internet.

Anyway, let's forget about the money for a while  (even though it's so hard for me not to think about that haha πŸ˜‚) because today, I have for you a review of the whitening lotion that I've recently tried so I wanna share you my loves my experience and thoughts about:

Opulence Ultra White Protect Glow Booster Body Lotion with SPF30

Luxurious whitening body lotion that help stops melanin production, stimulates skin rejuvenation and prevent formation of pigmented spots that cause skin darkening.

With SPF30 to help protect the skin against the UV rays
Helps the skin fight free radicals and other toxic elements.
With Glutathione, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin C and E, Clair Blanche and Sunblock

Where to buy?

How much?
P650 (200ml) They're on sale now for only P495! 😊

When I first opened this product, I was honestly disappointed with its smell because the smell was too strong so I swatched it on my arm and few minutes after it turns into a mild floral soothing scent and to tell you, the fragrance lasts and I liked it.

If there's one big thing that I really love about this lotion is that it has an instant whitening effect. I love how it makes my skin looking white, flawless and glowing specially when I'm under a good light or under the sun. Though, it's undeniably great too in any light condition (I am telling you this because I've tried many instant whitening lotions and there are some who gave me like grayish thing on my limbs when I'm in a darker place). 

Look at this photos:
As you can see, it gives my skin a natural looking instant whitening effect.
Another great thing about this product is that it's matte and not sticky at all. Even if the lotion was just freshly applied, I didn't feel any sticky or something like oily feeling. I also love the fact that it has a pump so it's very convenient for me and for you to get the product out of the bottle.

Just like some other lotions, a part of it specifically around the mouth of the pump and around the hole of bottle itself is turning into solid. You see what I mean? Yung nag bubuo buo sya ganon (jusko English why you're so so haha πŸ˜‚). I hate it and it's a no for me but it won't be a reason for me not to buy the product again because honestly, I am finishing my second bottle now.

As per whitening, I noticed an improvement on my complexion specially on the areas where I've got insect bites, they lightened quickly. Though, the whitening is not that dramatic, at least I know that it whitens and it's effective. I love the glow it gives though, and I think that's the forte of this product eh because it really gives me like super Tisoy looking skin whenever I am wearing it I swear guys plus it's not dripping when my skin gets wet (walang hulasan bes πŸ˜‚).

TIP: If the product is too white for you, dilute it with your favorite moisturizer or mix it with other watery lotions so it can blend well on your skin. That's what I am doing when I am applying it on my feet because my feet are darker than the rest of my body huhu.

What I like:
• Instant whitening effect
• Not sticky
• Smell
• Packaging
• Effective

What I don't like:
• A little pricey
• Part of it is turning solid in the hole and pump area.

All in all, this is a very good lotion and it's true to its promise. I will definitely recommend it to you guys. 😊
