I already featured some Pervil products few years ago. You may read my review of their Magic Cream, lotion and soap here. Just like what I have said, I can't help but to talk how this product works on my gadgadgaran I mean face hahaha. For full disclosure guys, this review is not sponsored by Pervil ok?

I was in the province "Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija" where Pervil Magic started and my original plan is to buy another set of Pervil Magic lotions and soaps because my skin wanted to experience them again. As I was looking at the set of products, the ACNE KIT caught my attention because it's the only set in green color. Everything's in a yellow or orange shade. So I was intrigued by it and bought the product with the hope that it will satisfy me as much as their Magic Cream, lotion and soap did. I even shared the picture of the product after my purchase on our #VanityFriends private group. If you guys wanna join in our group, just click here. We share here current skincare routines, sales, giveaways and kulitan of couse. :)

Here's the said post:
Hnd Hada Labo ang salarin huhu. Yung Snow Caps. Visit nyo YouTube Channel ko: Vanity Room Philippines para sa full details hehe.

As you can see, I have zits on my forehead and some acne on my jaw area and cheeks. In short, I am breaking out huhu. I started using the product few days after the purchase date and saw an amazing improvement after 3 days. Literally it was able to flattened my zits and tiny bumps plus the pimples are healing (drying) really quick. Here's the current state of my face now after finishing just one set:

I can say that everything in the set is my favorite. I love the smell of their toner and the cooling effect it gives not to mention that it is so moisturizing as well. The soap is a cold processed one so my skin is absorbing most of the active ingredients it contains. The Acne Solution Gel also has its cooling effect and the best thing about this product is when I applied the gel on my acne, I can feel that the product is working because my acne is feeling cool and a little itchy and I love that feeling hahaha. Also, a pump can treat 10 to 15 zits on your face, literally a little goes a long way. I also like the consistency and lightness of their sunblock plus the smell is so mild.

My Routine:

(Morning and night)
Wash my face with Glutathione soap -> Acne Solution Toner -> Acne Gel -> Sunblock (once the gel dried up)

I literally skip using moisturizer because the toner itself as I have said is so moisturizing. I'll just apply my preferred moisturizer if I am going to put on makeup because it's a must to create a perfect canvas. :)

There are just few things to consider, hmmm it will not hinder me from buying the product though. The Acne Gel smells like a medicine and I hate to smell one (it smells like liquid Robitosin). The packaging is not so appealing for me too. Though, all of the products (except from the soap) comes with a pump which is so convenient and hygienic so the not-so-appealing packaging has been compensated. It's not really the packaging (bottles), maybe the sticker and bag are the ones that don't appeal me much? What do you think?

Ohhh I also wish it is available in all Mercury drugstores and Watsons nationwide but don't worry because Pervil has a lot of provincial distributors around the country and abroad so ordering is not a problem.

All in all, I highly recommend using Pervil Magic Acne Kit because it simply works and it's so affordable as well. Using the product is so easy and it dries up pimple overnight. Mind you guys, it is really effective and working like a magic. Now that my acne is clearing, I will be using the Pervil Magic Rejuvenating Set next and I'll keep you guys updated for sure.

Wet N Wild Coverall Foundation Review

by 6:52 PM
I promised to review the Wet N Wild Coverall Foundation for you guys on my last BeautyMNL haul, you'll see there that I picked the said foundation because it has great reviews. I've been using this product for a week now and here are my thoughts about it.


Wet N Wild Coverall Foundation

Wet n’ Wild is one of the most recognizable and popular drugstore brands out there—but it’s certainly more than just-your-average. The LA-based company was one of the first to offer makeup under a dollar, without sacrificing hot beauty trends. The brand has always centered on the spirit of experimenting with color, staying up to date with fashion, and having fun with your makeup. Today, Wet n’ Wild has reinvented itself with sexy new packaging and new formulations with skincare benefits.

Where to buy?

How much?
P399.00 (29.6ml)

It's "Oven time" I mean summer hahaha so it's perfeect to review a foundation. Not only we can test its longevity, we can also see if it looks great under the sun. By the way, this is not sponsored by Wet N Wild hah. :)

I like its squeezable tube packaging because it's hygienic and easy to carry around "handy". I also like the fact that everything you need to know about the product is printed on the tube. That's something a meticulous buyer would look first.

In terms of longevity, I must say that the product still looks good after more than 7 hours with very minimal touch-up. I wore the product the whole day and I walked under the sun, around the market and mall. I only blot once to collect some sweats and very few oils on my face. After that, the product and my face still look like a couple. :)

Freshly applied in the morning.

After more than 7 hours. Blotted once. No filter.
It has a medium to full coverage which is perfect for my not-so-perfect face hahaha. I also like its consistency because it's not too liquid-y nor too thick. It is just right for my liking. The product is so easy to blend using my damp beauty blender and it didn't cake on my face.

What I don't like about this product is the smell, I don't know but for me it smells like a burning plastic "You know, like your old friend lol." just kidding hahaha. Seriously smells like plastic or mild chemicals and I hope they can do something about it. I also don't like the mouth of its tube because it looks really messy. I wish they can put a stopper for that. Look:

In addition, I hate the feeling of heaviness on the first few minutes after applying this product. It feels thick and sticky but it disappears after 5 minutes or so. I also wish they can release more shades here in the Philippines.

All in all, the Wet N Wild Coverall Foundation is an amazing base considering that it's a drugstore makeup. One proof that not because it's affordable, it's low quality. NO! This foundation is really great and I highly recommend it. It's affordable and good for oily to combination skin types.

I made a video review of this foundation on my YouTube Channel. You may watch it here:

Product Feature: Relumins Premium Collagen Blend is now FDA Approved

by 7:17 PM

If you are like me, a person who's always on the go and in a hurry because of busy schedule and heavy works, our go-to refresher is a nice cold drink or a cup of energizing coffee in the morning. We always want instant as much as possible specially when it comes to drinks (I used to squeeze fresh lemons and oranges to make a glass of refreshing drink) sadly I can't do it because of the above mentioned reasons. However, I am always eyeing for a healthy and tasty alternative drinks of course, I won't settle for unhealthy instant juices like the ones in pouch and bottles.

Great thing there's Relumins Premium Collagen Blend. The Most Advanced "FDA Approved" Collagen Supplement in Blueberry and Pineapple flavor. This is one of the ultimate skin care products in the market.  It contains 100% Premium-Grade ActuMarine Collagen, a low molecular weight fish collagen peptide that was developed in Japan.  It is now being recognized as the gold standard in collagen because it is tasteless, odorless and highly absorb-able.

Convenient and Delicious. They mix collagen with natural fruit juice to create a delicious Pineapple and Blueberry  flavor drinks. This premium grade collagen is tasteless and odorless so you don't have the bad taste that comes with other collagen drinks.  Just pour a sachet into a glass of water and enjoy.  This ultra pure, premium peptide will rush straight to your skin and joints, keeping them young, healthy, and strong.

Full Spectrum Skin Support  Each sachet contains 9 advanced ingredients to fight signs of aging, whiten skin and reduce wrinkles.  Antioxidants such as L-Glutathione, Vitamin C and Green Tea protect skin from damaging free radicals and whiten skin naturally.  This formula also contains Hyaluronic Acid, Peral Coix Extract, Glucosamine, Vitamin B2 and CoQ10.

Support Natural Collagen Production  Vitamin C and CoQ10 have been shown to naturally support collagen production.  This means that in addition to the more than 4000mg of collagen found in each sachet, your body will be producing more of its own collagen.  This direct and indirect increase in collagen will keep your skin at its best!

I have been taking this Collagen since last week and I am enjoying it. I personally like the Pineapple flavor. I started taking it after finishing my Meiji Collagen milk. Both reviews are coming up in the next weeks.

No matter what the day throws your way, keep your skin looking young, healthy and elastic with the best tasting, and refereshing collagen drink. :)

DIY Instant Skin Bleaching Using Agua Oxinada?

by 2:03 AM
I wanna start this blog post by saying that I am not an expert so all of the statements you are about to read were based on my own opinion. It's always your discretion if you're going to follow it or not.

Alright! Few weeks ago, I received two messages from two different people asking if I know the formula for that DIY Bleaching kemerut! The first person even asked me if I'm a user of that. Alright guys, to be honest, I am also curious about it because I haven't tried it yet.

I made my research about it and I decided not to do it or create my own formula. I also don't recommend you guys doing it. There are several reasons why so let me share you some.

1. You're not an expert a.k.a chemist or dermatologist to formulate your own skin whitening chorvalu haha. If you're like me who's an ordinary person without enough knowledge about chemicals specially when mixed together. Hala na! Guys we are not aware of the chemical reaction when mixed with other chemicals or ingredients.

2. Too much exposure to Hydrogen Peroxide or Agua Oxinda can harm our skin, eyes, nose and lungs.

3. There were cases of skin irritation because of doing their own skin bleaching formula.

4. The instant whitening it gives is temporary. What's happening is Capillary embolism. It prevents blood from flowing to the capillaries at the affected area for some time and that is why your skin will appear light or fair. After awhile, our capillaries will go back to normal and so do our skin color.

Those are just some of the many important  reasons why you shouldn't take the risk to create your own skin bleaching formula with Agua Oxinada.

I also have a video version of this article you may watch here:

If you really want to achieve fairer skin complexion, try the safest method like using whitening lotions, soaps, pills and scrubs. You can also eat fruits and vegetables because they contain highlevel of glutathione and antioxidants that is proven to give a healthier white looking skin.

How to Quit Smoking? My Journey to A Smoke-free Life Part 2

by 2:17 PM
Hello my #VanityFriends. It's Lenten season and I thought it's the perfect time to share you my life far from cigarette. Let's have a break from beauty reviews and our usual agendas. Today let me share you a story, yes, just like Eat Bulaga and Showtime, we also have a Lenten special for you and it's based on the true story of my Smoke-free life.

If you haven't read the part 1 of this story yet, you can check it out by clicking here. In the first part of this Telenovela haha, you saw that I suffered from depression and anxiety. I shared the first 18 days of my smoke-free life in the part 1 of this story and let me share you now the rest of what happened.
I was rushed in the hospital because of GERD and too much anxiety. :(
During the first 3 months, I was still craving for cigarettes specially when someone's smoking near me. You know that feeling of too much cravings to the point that your mouth is watering? Parang ginigiyang ba bes haha. I thought I succeeded this craving stage during the first 18 days but no I was wrong. During that 18 days, the nicotine withdrawal effect was not yet totally manifesting. The real struggle began after a month.

After few months of my no more cigarette life, my depression and anxiety were getting worst. There were times that I am so afraid to go out and socialize. There were also days that I was worrying too much about tomorrow thinking what's waiting for me.You know the feeling of being worthless? That's what I thought. Since cigarette is a mood enhancer, I also experienced a lot of mood swings and bad days. It came to the point that even Yoga and meditation were no longer working to calm myself down. I was crying each day thinking of sacrificing my health and go back to nicotine just to make me feel good again. 

My partner was almost quitting on me because my behavior surprised my partner too much. I was almost thinking of ending my life but I thank God for giving me my partner who never gave up on me, my friends and family who cheered me up. This month is the 8th month of my smoke-free life and I can say that I am better now! No more cravings at all, I am no longer in favor of its bad smelling smoke, no more mornings full of phlegm, no more bad breath, no more unfavorable sweats and most of all, I can confidently breath now and my stamina is getting back to normal.

You can see an improvement on my skin and overall appearance. Yeah I look healthier and happier now. 😊

So what's my secret in quitting cigarette or nicotine? There's only one thing that you must have to totally quit. Courage! Yes! It only takes courage to quit smoking. It may sound so simple but it is not. In fact, it is so hard but when you have the path and the courage to quit, you can make it. Just believe in yourself and think of all the negative things smoking can bring you. I remember a friend who told me that smoking wasn't bad because he knew a neighbor who's smoking since high school and now a senior citizen, still alive and continuously smoking. I made him realized that his one neighbor is nothing compared to millions of deaths recorded because of smoking.

It is never too late to quit! The sooner you plan the better. Take action and have courage! Don't let nicotine control your mind and eat your life. You are the master of yourself! Embrace and own it! The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now! 😊 ❤

"Everything in life has its own time. There is time to celebrate and there is time to mourn. This is the time for reflection and transformation. Let us look within and change into what we ought to be."

Vitapack Facial Mask: Why it's the best facial mask in the Philippines?

by 6:51 PM
I have been using this  facial mask since November last year. It took me months to review this product since facial mask is not something you can use everyday. I don't want to give my verdict about this product with just one use because it will unfair for the brand and for you. Good thing VitaPack sent me a lot of this masks for me to try and share some to my monthly giveaways.

Vitapack Facial Mask: Why it's the best facial mask in the Philippines?

Vitapack Collagen + Arbutin + Q10 Perfecting Pepetide Facial Mask is the perfect treatment to rejuvenate your skin. As skin matures, it becomes thinner, begins to sag, and develops sun and age spots. Our facial mask will let the ingredients of collagen, arbutin, and Q10 sink into your skin, helping boost energy production in the cells to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and skin blemishes. This mask promotes fairer, brighter and smoother skin tone and texture, and helps restore and maintain the elasticity of the skin. The result is supple, radiant, and beautiful skin. 

Where to buy?

How much?
P199.00 per sachet

I use this product once, twice or thrice a week and I'll explain why. On the normal days, I use Vitapack twice a week but when I have an event to attend to, I use VitaPack Facial Mask to prep my skin.

It's the only mask that gives my skin a nice dewy finish that turns into matte when fully absorbed by our skin so it's perfect for all skin types. My makeup stays longer when I prep my skin with this amazing mask.

I am just not so impressed with its packaging. I mean there's nothing wrong about it it's just that I see a lot of quirky and cute korean facial masks that why haha. On the lighter note, its packaging contains all the things you need to know about the product. It's very detailed so the not-so-appealing packaging will not hinder you from buying the product. Another thing that I noticed is the sheet. It's kinda shorter than normal ones. However, it's overloaded with serum. The serum inside is generously packaged so I use the excess to moisturize my arms and legs.

As per whitening, I noticed a more radiant skin specially when I'm not wearing makeup. I noticed that the redness on my face were lessened not to mention the overall condition of my face. Though it has a matte effect on my skin, it's also hydrating so it's perfect too if you have a dry skin. Did I say that it also has a cooling effect? Yes! It's perfect this summer season! :)

For me this is the best whitening and anti aging facial mask in the Philippines and I highly recommend it. You know how sincere I am when recommending you a product. When I say it's the best, I mean it's really the BEST!
