Neostrata Acne Skincare

 

For my must shop, this would be my personal share about what to do to fight acne during winter. Since I came from a very hot country then transfer to Winnipeg which is the coldest city I’ve ever been. It’s a given that there will be some changes. The reaction to my face was really severe to the point that I have no idea what to do.

I went to a pharmacy and asked for a skin consultation. Since dermatologist are pretty expensive here (which was my last choice if this doesn’t have an effect) getting an advice from the pharmacist might help…even for a little bit. After some skin test and the long interview, the pharmacist recommended me Taro Clindamycin as a toner then the Neostrata line.

I was really scared about using the Neostrata since this thing is very new to me and my face is super sensitive.

She told me to give it a try and observe what would be the effect on my skin.

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this February

Both products have salicylic acid and glycolic acid so it does target acne. The facial wash is like a gel like blue substance that’s quite unique. I love how it turns into a creamy texture once you massage it into your face and cleanses away all makeup, dirt, and oil.

On the other hand, The Neostrata Acne Solution is a highly concentrated toner that specifically targets the big zits and helps to unclog those dirty pores. This solution is so strong that it stings! I advise to used it only to affected area and only once a day at nighttime. The only disadvantage of this product is it’s extremely drying. My face is peeling (which is a good sign) and totally dry that you need loads of moisturizer to put on before going out.

It’s been three weeks since using these products and I can see the improvement on my skin. I got less breakout now and some acne scars that I have to whiten but thanks to this line, my face is getting better.

Of course, I’m watching this! So much eye candies and my handsome Minho from Shinee.

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

Hi guys! Sorry for not updating anything on the blog. I was really busy with my finals, and looking for part-time work (which I have now….wink*) that I got no time to post. Now that my exams are FINALLY OVER….and CHRISTMAS is near… I got loads of time to update my blog.

First off, My Must Shop Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER.

Must SHOP

These are the things that I bought from  BLACK FRIDAY MADNESS last November… (apologies for my super late upload)

My Floral Bag from ALDO from $60 to $30 sale with FREE SHIPPING.

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

It’s super cute and I think I need pink stuff this winter to brighten the gloomy aura here and to amp my dark clothes.

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

and this Fur Checkered Coat…

15645564_10210157512761914_738422310_n

I went to a thrift store near Pembina Highway (cuz…I’m really thrifty) and saw this FOREVER 21 jacket in True Value (brand new..with original tag!) that cost $13 dollars…. I LOVE THRIFT STORES!

 

Must SHARE

If you’re broke (like me) that seriously need to give gifts this Christmas, the very inexpensive item that you could give and will still appreciate your love ones is a handmade gift.

Like for instance, BATH BOMBS

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

HERE’S HOW TO MAKE:

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

1 cup of Baking Soda

1/2 cup of Citric Acid (you can buy this on Amazon)

1/2 cup of Epson Salt (I choose lavender)

1/2 cornstarch (our binding ingredient)

1 tsp water (or you could use a water bottle spray, It’s much easier)

2 tsp essential oil (you can use any scent that you like)

3 tsp of coconut oil or olive oil

food coloring (any color you want)

Bath Bomb Mold (e.g cookie cutter, plastic cups or clear ornaments)

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. (baking soda,citric,cornstarch and Epson salt)

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

In a separate container, mix the liquid ingredients together then add the food coloring you want. Don’t forget to add your desired essential oil ( I chose lavender to relieve stress and perfect for relaxation)

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

Slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture so that the baking soda won’t react easily. Mix it with your hand until you reach to a wet sand-like texture. That means it’s ready to mold!

15665991_10210157554642961_386841128_n

Put the mixture in a mold and press it tightly with a spoon or by hand. Make sure you press it real tight.

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

Like this… 

Although the mold that I bought was not really good in making bath bombs so I failed for the first try….

I made my second attempt and this time I used the plastic cup in shaping the bath bombs… good thing it worked. 

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

Leave it hardened for 1-2 days then wrap it up with a clear plastic.

You can customize this whatever you like and add some decorations like a pine tree leaves or some rose petals to make it look more festive.

Instant gift 101. :p

Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

I am seriously addicted to this drama.

The story is about love, friendship,sports and achieving dreams.  It’s not your typical Korean drama.

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this DECEMBER

Inspired by Olympic gold medalist Jang Mi-ran first love, an uplifting coming of age story about a 21-year-old weightlifting student experiencing love for the very first time.

Plus, Nam Joo Hyuk’s eyes are so charming. His acting immensely improved since School 2015

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this November

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this November

 

Hello, Guys! I am so sorry for not posting anything for the last two months. As you can see, I’ve started studying at the University of Manitoba this Fall as an International Student and it was challenging since I’m new with the “studying” and “reviewing” from my last school, which was 5 years ago.

Moving on, there are so many things and stories that I wanna share with you guys! Here’s the highlight of my November Must Shop, Must Share, and Must Watch.

Must Shop: Shoppers Beauty Haul

I am so lucky to have Shoppers Mart as my neighbor… it’s like the Mecca of Drugstore Makeup! I can go there every day to spend all my allowance just for makeup. (kidding…I gotta save)

So here’s what I got:

Nyx Eyebrow Gel, Nyx Liquid Suede, Nyx Regular Lipstick and Nyx Matte Lipstick

Must Shop, Must Share, Must Watch this October

The Nyx Eyebrow Gel is one of my favorites right now. This small tube comes with greatness!

Must Shop, Must Share, Must Watch this October

This is a highly pigmented brow gel so you’ll only need a small dot of this and angle brush in doing your eyebrows. It’s super blendable and smudge free!

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this October

It provides a long wear result so no need for a retouch. The Nyx gel comes in five shades: blonde, chocolate, brunette and black. I got mine in chocolate.

Nyx Matte Cream Istanbul

The most talked about lip cream where lipstick and cream combined.

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this November

The only problem that I have with this product is its packaging. It is so small and the price is almost the same with Nyx Liquid Suede.

I guess the main purpose of its small packaging is to collect and spend more on different shades. Which I would totally do.

 

Ogx Argan Oil Morocco

My favorite hair product right now. This little one is my go to product and used to tame my frizzy hair after a shower.

Must Share

That moment when you realize that you’re moving to a different continent in ONE WEEK!  I am panicking right now.

The Must Shop, Must Share, Must Watch this August

Yes, dear readers, the very reason for my slow updates in my blog is because of my moving to Canada. I got accepted to the University of Manitoba with a business management course that would take a year or more to complete and an internship. I’m very excited about my journey and nervous about what will happen and if I can survive being away with my family…

It hurts to stay away from them and I just can’t imagine myself talking to them on the phone or skyping and not in person. If only Canada is only an hour away from home.. but the google map failed me and says 14 hours by plane.

This new journey seems difficult but I am very thankful to my mom by always there to support me and help me in my needs. I know this time I also owe it to her but I’m hoping to repay it twice what she gave and will strive harder to achieve her dream.

Our dream.

Thank you and hoping to have fun and memorable adventures in my new home!

P.S.- Don’t worry, I’m still going to blog (wink*)

Sukina Hito Ga Iru Koto

Are you into J-dramas?

Well, I found one interesting romantic drama that will make your heart wild.

If you’re a fan of Kento Yamazaki then this one for you.

sukina_hito_ga_iru_koto-p01

Misaki Sakurai has not dated in a long time. She has focused on her work as a pâtissier to eventually run her own business. One day, she gets fired from work and then meets her first love from high school, Chiaki Shibasaki.  He offered Misaki a job in a summer restaurant and offers her to stay in his house together with his two younger brothers, Toma and Kanata (Kento).

Train to Busan

train_to_busan-p1

The most talked about movie in Korea with over 10 million viewers  and one of the films presented at the Cannes Film Festival.

New action thriller film Train to Busan is about the passengers of one KTX bullet train and their struggle to survive from the zombie outbreak. 

On board are several strangers including Gong Yoo (Coffee Prince) who must unite with others against the hordes of zombies. 

It’ like World War Z version 2.0 on a train… How cool is that?!

Still showing in korean cinemas and overseas….. (will wait for them to upload on the net hohoho)

Hi Everyone! I apologized for my lazy updates and for not posting anything related to the monthly must share. (especially last June).

I am so sorry for that and as a peace offering, Here is my latest (late again..) Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this July!!

The Must Shop, Must Share, Must Watch this July

 

The Must Shop:

Colourpop Lipsticks

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this July

I’m not actually a fan of matte liquid lipstick because they dried faster than any normal lippies and regular matte lipsticks. But it’s rewarding that this Colourpop Lipsticks from Your Makeup Store PH stays longer for 6-8 hours on me.

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this July

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Donut and Ultra Satin Lip in LAX.

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this July

I honestly love the Donut shade. The color is more of a peach pink vibe that is perfect for girly girls like me. The shade is great and it perfectly suits my skin tone. The only problem for me with colour pop is it dries wayyyy to fast…

Must Shop, Must Share and Must Watch this July

The LAX is the one that I’m not satisfied with. The color is amazing  with a dark cherry tone but the formula sucks…..it’s terrible.

It looks amazing for the first 10 minutes but it wears off horribly over the course of the day. It gets worst if you put on another coat and feels super sticky. The hardest part is when you’re trying to remove the lipstick and it won’t come off.

(I’ve tried using brown sugar and olive oil to remove this)

It’s a creamy matte substance that is very easy to apply and what I love about this lipstick is its deep violet shade that is very similar to MAC Heroine. Totally worth it and would love to purchase more from the Color Sensation Line.
