Great moisturizer

I’ve mentioned in my previous entry that cyleina soaps tend to dry my skin,. So I was in constant search for lotion and body oils to counteract dryness and peeling.. And the winners are: Olay in-shower body lotion and Palmer’s moisturizing body oil (so far..)..

Olay Age Defying In-shower body lotion:

“Olay moisturizers and vitaNiacin penetrate deep within the surface to condition skin for up to 24 hours. Fights dryness that comes with aging skin. Daily use will reveal younger-looking skin in 5 days!”

Sounds nice eigh?!! But true enough, it lives to its promises,. My skin was supple, soft. smooth and moisturized.. no more peeling and dryness.. So how do you use this? After cleansing, smooth onto wet skin . I prefer to wait for 1 minute before rinsing coz I think it allows the product to penetrate deeper into skin, hence getting the most out of the product. After that I rinse off, but don’t rub off your skin too much! It will really leave a sticky after-feel, but ounce you’ve toweled off your body and have your body’s totally dry, you’ll love the super smooth skin you have..

It also leaves gold glittery flecks on skin, Its not flashy anyway, it shows though when sunray hits your skin,. I think this will also be great for gals who party out,. No need for body dusting, its like body make-up already, makes skin instantly radiant!

Im totally inlove with this product and I’m sticking on this,. I think the “age-defying” thing sounds like bells on my ear…

But what about if Im on a hurry, and that I cant afford rinsing twice and an extra minute of waiting.. the answer :

Palmer’s Moisturizing body Oil:

“A no-rinse moisturizing light oil with pure cocoa butter and Vitamin E to help soften and soothe rough and dry skin.”

It absorbs quickly, a little goes a long way,. Love how my skin really smells like cocoa/choco.. So what makes it more special than Nuetrogena body oil (which I’ve used too before)? The price! It’s a hundred or too bucks cheaper.. Plus Nuetrogena’s main component is sesame seed oil,. That’s it, its minimalist coz its supposed to be hypoallergenic.. In Palmer’s you got soybean oil, SESAME SEED OIL, safflower seed oil, cocoa butter, Vit E and A (in form of beta carotene) .. that’s way better for me, more moisturizing agent to prevent aging.. and the best part of it, its devoid of parabens. **grin**…

You might be thinking its too sticky for use of those with oily skin, then I guess just use lesser! It will be absorbed anyway.. And yah USE LESS, I once got exaggerated in using this, and my) officemate (when she held my arm) commented “ang lagkit mo” (you’re skin is sticky)..

Geez,. Im loving both of them, that I sometimes use it alternately.. Skin is really hydrated for 24 hours! And the best part of it, I can still slather on SPF lotion on exposed area (arms, legs) without feeling like a walking grease ball (well that’s me coz I’ve dry skin)..

Stop sweating with Driclor

Ever experience an overly sweaty UA? Embarrassing, eigh? Fret no more, the ultimate solution for overly active sweat glands - Driclor,. At first i was hesitant to buy one coz its way expensive for an antiperspirant, this costs P800++.. But I really want to be able to use my coats going to office without worrying of having marks on my clothes. I also wanna be able to use closed shoes without wearing foot socks you cant hide. And most of all I wanna put an end on my sweaty hands,.

So then I decided to buy one myself,. Instruction says it is to be used on night. On the first week I used it for 3 consecutive nights. Upon application my UA is so itchy and red. I tried hard not to scratch it to avoid darkening. My feet and hand felt weird. Its not as soft as it was before but it sure does stop sweating on my UA and minimizes sweating on hand and feet.

After the 3 straight nights of using it, I switched to every other night (for 2 weeks only) after that I tried weekly ( for 2 week ) My UA, hand and feet are back to normal, soft and smooth, no sweating at all now. Now im on every 2 weeks stage. It sure does feel itchy still on UA but at least I only have to suffer this every 2 weeks,. Sooner I’ll be on my maintenance stage wherein I’ll minimize my use to once a month. That is why driclor is economical in a sense that a bottle l last very long. Highly recommended for you active gals!

Cyleina, new HG soap

I've used almost all variant of this soap namely:

black pearl
* Whitens skin tone instantly!
* lightens dark spots and pimple scars
* Effective in lightening dark underarms and inner thighs caused by imbalanced hormones, chemical burns from deodorants
*anti-wrinkle&best skin moisturizer
*safe and will not sting!
*see results as early as first use!

Recommendation: This product performs best when used continually and also recommended for oily acne prone skin

Black pearl inspired soap made from the finest high grade quality of arbutin, collagen oil, and Vitamins C & E. Only the best ingredients that mother nature can give are used in this creation.

kojic papaya with gluta

If kojic soap dont dry your skin, this one is an excellent whitener for you

reduces fine line and tightens skin,. I can actually feel the tightening effect on my face o a moisturizer is a must.. not a whitening soap..

a mild whitening soap with fresh fruit to counter act sunburned and heavily blemished skin, poppy seed serves a scrub.

I've always wanted to create my own blogg since last year. Finally got the courage to do it. I've always wanted to share my views regarding different beauty products and make-up i've used. I'm a mineral make-up convert (which i will write a review soon), but i will share also my view on non-mmu (traditional make-up) i've used.
