#RIXREVIEWS: OPULENCE Time to Glow White + Renew

Back in October of last year, I was lucky to be a part of the first Meet & Greet and the third blog-versarry of MJ Perez of Vanity Room Philippines! The event was fun-filled and was truly inspiring. I loved that he wanted to share his blessings, not only to us – his friends/followers, but also to the less privileged children.

After the charity event, we had a sumptuous dinner at Dong Juan where we also played fun games and received loot bags filled (literally) with skin care products!

MJ and his sponsors have super big hearts! Many, many thanks!

Anyways, one of the products I received was the Opulence Time to Glow White + Renew.

The product is housed in a round transparent acrylic pot with white screw cap. The label has all the basic information that you’ll need to know – what it is for, the amount of product in the container, what it is made of, where and when it was made, how to use it, and when the expiration date is.

#RIXREVIEWS: NATURE SKIN SECRETS Skin Purifier Black Toner

First things first, let me begin this post by telling you some things that must be considered:

  1. I had not used any toners before I got this. It’s been ages since I last used one.
  2. I was having a bad skin day when I received it – more like bad skin dayS – so my skin was rough and I had several pimples on my forehead, somewhere on the cheeks, and around the mouth area.
  3. I’m not a doll so I don’t have a perfect skin. I’ve had pimple marks and scars and that’s that.
  4. I don’t get facials. The first and the last time I did was at Flawless Sta. Rosa back in 2016, and that’s how I got my huge pimple scar on my right cheek underneath my eye. I had an acne when I went there, and my attendant pricked it.
  5. Of course, this is not the only product that I’m currently using. However, I can tell that the results I got was from this product, since the other products were already being used even before I had the toner.
  6. This product was sent to me to try and review.
    DOย NOTE, THOUGH, THAT I ALWAYS GIVE MY SUPER DUPER HONEST OPINION AND I BASE EVERYTHING ON HOW I FEEL DURING THE PROCESS AND HOW GOOD THE OUTCOME IS. SO IF I SAY I LOVE IT, THAT MEANS I LOVE IT, AND IF I SAY I HATE IT, THAT MEANS I HATE IT.
    ALSO, REMEMBER THAT NOT BECAUSE IT WORKS FOR ME, IT WILL WORK FOR YOU. BUT WHO KNOWS? RIGHT? BETTER TRY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Okay, let’s get started!

You may have read two Nature Skin Secrets products on my blog – the Detox Mask with Black Combo and You Glow Girl Gold Collagen Detox Mask. In case you haven’t yet, I mentioned on both posts that the thing I don’t like about them is the lack of information on labels. I always read the labels before actually diving into any product.ย (Comment below if you do it, too!) Continue reading “#RIXREVIEWS: NATURE SKIN SECRETS Skin Purifier Black Toner”

#RIXREVIEWS: NATURE SKIN SECRETS You Glow Girl Gold Collagen Detox Mask

“My skin is 24 karat gold when the sun hits it.”
– Kevin Gates

Previously,ย  I posted a product from Nature Skin Secrets and that was their Detox Mask with Black Combo. I honestly loved the result the product gave me, so despite the lack of information on the labels and my messy first time experience, I still recommend this mask. It’s just a matter of knowing how to properly use it.

Fortunately for me, the kind people behind the brand loved my review so they sent me a couple of their other products to try. They even included a cosmetic bowl with a spoon and a brush.ย (Thanks so much, Ms. Maui and Ms. Cecil! ๐Ÿ’•)

DO note, though, that I always give my SUPER DUPER HONEST opinion and I base everything on how I feel during the process and how good the outcome is. So if I say I love it, that means I love it, and if I say I hate it, that means I hate it.

Foot Spa at Home!|RIXREVIEWS: Calmia & Purederm Foot Peeling Masks

“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

The most exhausted part of our body might be the feet. They bear our entire weight, as we go about our day. Sometimes, they’re even squished in really tight shoes. They’re often the least loved.

It is fortunate that nowadays there are plenty of ways to pamper our poor feet. Some might cost Galleons, but I know one that does not cost that much! Or at least, two! ๐Ÿ˜‰

My sister and I decided to try out the trendy foot peeling masks. We had seen promotional videos on these products and we got really curious. Though the peeling stage scared me a bit, I knew that exfoliation was the only way to a smoother pair of feet. Continue reading “Foot Spa at Home!|RIXREVIEWS: Calmia & Purederm Foot Peeling Masks”

#RIXREVIEWS: NARUKO Tea Tree Purifying Clay Mask & Cleanser in 1

One of the perks of having attended Glamcon MNL last January 21st was being able to get free samples from participating brands. One of those brands was Naruko.

Naruko was founded by Niuer, whom everyone in Taiwan refers to as the “Beauty King”. The brand was awarded the “Best New Brand 2010” in Taiwan and China, and for three consecutive years (2008-2010), it was considered as “the most outstanding contribution to beauty”.

The brand has established itself as distinctive and highly regarded, so I consider myself fortunate to be able to try at least one of their most sought-after products. Continue reading “#RIXREVIEWS: NARUKO Tea Tree Purifying Clay Mask & Cleanser in 1”

#RIXREVIEWS: NATURE SKIN SECRETS Detox Mask with Black Combo

As we go about our daily life, our skin gets exposed to dirt and other unpleasant stuff. Gunk, makeup, dust, and bacteria sit on our skin and clog up our pores. This causes our skin to break out.

That’s why thorough cleansing is important.ย Imagine your kitchen sink drain if it’s filled with lots of gunk, pieces of food, and toothpaste!ย (Ugh!)

We need something that can draw the bacteria, chemicals, and dirt out of our skin. According to the experts, one of the best ways to do it is to use activated charcoal. Nowadays, there are a handful of products whose main ingredient is activated charcoal — from toothpaste to face masks.

I was fortunate enough to win this Detox Maskย  in Ms. Karen Liz’s Christmas giveaway. This was my first time trying a charcoal mask in powder form. I used it on my #MondayMask night after washing and scrubbing my face. Continue reading “#RIXREVIEWS: NATURE SKIN SECRETS Detox Mask with Black Combo”

Bring out the sparkles in you! | UNBOXING: ALTHEA’S Gold Sparkling Box

“You’re worth more than gold.” -unknown

The past year was definitely like being on a giant swing. Adventurous. Thrilling. Terrifying. Exciting. Nauseating.

It wasn’t really that bad, actually. There were still a lot of things to be grateful for. One of these amazing things was being given the opportunity to try the products in this cleverly curated box from Althea! (Thanks, Ms. Tammy and to Althea Mermaid and Pixies! ๐Ÿ˜˜)

Few weeks ago, I was given the privilege to pick among their three holiday boxes: the Red Sparkling Boxย (P1420), the Gold Sparkling Boxย (P1,330), and the Black Sparkling Boxย (P1,460).ย (Obviously, I picked the gold one. Hehe!)ย Unfortunately, as of this writing, the Gold Sparkling Box is out of stock! You can still purchase the other two boxes, but you need to hurry! ‘Cause they sell like hotcakes!

PUREDERM’s SPArty with JESSICA GODINEZ

Last October 21st, Jessica Godinez and Purederm held a Spa Party at Manos Nail Lounge. Eleven lucky women had been picked to join; Mikk and I were two of those fortunate ones!

IMG_20171021_152145

Despite looking luxurious, the place felt comfortable and welcoming. There were cozy couches and ratan chairs all around. There were pillows on every couch. I swear anybody could fall asleep in it!

As soon as Mikk and I got there, we were given a drink called Bayani Brew. I got the flavor Lemongrass Pandan and Mik got Moringa Dalandan. That was our first time to try Bayani Brew. It may have sounded strange, but it was surprisingly good! We were then asked to choose which Purederm products we would love to try. I chose the Nail Masks and the Hand Masks. I would say that I was truly impressed to see that they do not only offer face masks, but also masks for the nails, hands, and feet. The hand masks smelled so good and the nail masks absolutely moisturized my dry nails! Purederm also has cucumber eye patches and peel-off masks.

I WON IN ALTHEA’S SELFIE CONTEST!

A couple of months ago, Althea held the Petal Velvet Powder Selfie Contest where they’d be choosing 10 lucky winners of $50 worth of Althea shopping credits. Thanks to my girl Christine (@theglamourhour) for making me join. Had she not, I wouldn’t have had this rare opportunity!

The $50 shopping credits appeared on my Althea account on October 31st, as promised by one of theirย “pixies”. Prior to this, I had already picked all the items I wanted to get and added them all to cart. (The winners were announced beginning of October.) By the time I was ready to check out, some of the items had already been out of stock. So I had to go through their vast ocean of amazing Korean skin care and makeup products again.

Thanks again to my beshy Christine, I learned that I could use Althea’s Halloween promo code at that time to get 13% discount. So, yep! I got to pick more items just to use up all P2,600 ($50) credits.

Had it not been for the shopping credits and the promo code, I would’ve paid P3,194! I got a discount of P415.22 so I only had to pay P178.78.

The best part? I only had to wait 10 days! They’ve been consistent, by the way. This was the third time I purchased from them, and I have never been disappointed. They shipped out my parcel on the 1st of November, and it was delivered to my doorstep today, the 11th. No problems withย ‘croicky’ย Customs.

Let me now show you the products that I picked. Continue reading “I WON IN ALTHEA’S SELFIE CONTEST!”

Love your skin. Moisturize! | RIXREVIEWS: HERA Cell-Bio Trial Kit II | GABISTAR PH

For years, I was led to believe that moisturizers were a major no-no for someone who had oily skin such as me.

This turned out to be a huge mistake since all skin types need proper amount of moisture and hydration in order for the skin to work properly.

I’ve learned that our skin produces more oil if it’s too dry. So it’s not really good when it feels squeaky clean. Continue reading “Love your skin. Moisturize! | RIXREVIEWS: HERA Cell-Bio Trial Kit II | GABISTAR PH”
