Bronze Lipstick by Jordana (Review)




The taste of this lipstick is sweet. Honestly, this shade, bronze doesn't look good on me. It will suit to girls with a dark/tan skin specially during evening event. I should have bought jordana crushed plum red instead bronze shade. :(
  

I'm wearing Jordana Color Wave Lip Color Baja Bronze

Pros: I love the sweet taste. So yummy!
    Lovely  glittery glossy shine
         The smell is not strong.

Cons:   Not available locally.
                            Bronze shade is not for me

Tretinoin For Acne Review (Blackheads and White Heads/Milia Solution)


Tretinoin Gel .1%
                                                                          

Tretinoin (Retin-A, Atralin, Renova, Avita, Altinac)  is the acid form of Vit A. It is a drug used for mild to moderate acne, whiteheads and black heads. Tretinoin is available in gel: 0.01%, 0.025%, 0.04%, 0.05%, 0.1%. and cream: 0.02%, 0.025%, 0.05%, 0.1%.  It increases the cell turn over and unclogged the pores. As it increases the cell turnover it prevents new pimples from forming. Tretinoin is also popular for improving wrinkles. It is very effective for whiteheads and black heads but it will take 6-9 weeks to see a noticeable difference.

Tretinoin saved me from pain and spending alot of money to derma. I remember those bloody painful facial pricking sessions (2x a month) with my derma just to remove milias/whiteheads.  I experienced severe milia/whiteheads due to my unhealthy eating diet (fatty foods). I started using tretion cream this year, July. I'm using tretion gel .1% generic (without Rx). If you have a sensitive skin you should consult a derma before using tretinoin.  For the 1st month, tretinoin will cause a pimple/whiteheads/blackheads breakout. Don't freakout! That is normal.  Tretinoin will cause some peeling. I experienced mild peeling that usually lasts 1-3 days. After 1 month you will see a noticeable difference. My nose is now clear from whiteheads and milias. It also reduced my pores.  I experienced another breakout last month because i shifted from tretinoin cream to gel. To avoid another breakout, just stick to 1 brand. If you have a dry skin you will need to apply a moisturizer while you are on tretinoin. You have to apply tretinoin religiously, before going to sleep, to see the immediate result. You can stop, if you already achieve your desired result. And never forget to wear sunblock. Tretinoin will cause thinning of the skin that may be prone to sunburn.

How to use Tretinoin

1. Wash or cleanse your face first.
2. Dry your face.
3. Apply the cream/gel in thin layer at night.
4. Let it absorbed by your skin. You can put a moisturizer after 10-20 minutes.

Note: Tretinoin should not be used during  pregnancy and breastfeeding

 I purchased tretinoin gel from Dare to Bare Shop .

20 Minutes To Luscious Lips

Who doesn’t want full luscious lips? They are incredibly sexy and represent youthfulness, fertility and an allure that not many other facial features can match. That’s why us ladies love our lipsticks, lip glosses and shines! But no matter how much product you expertly apply to your lips, in the end there’s nothing much you can do if your lips are thin and wrinkled. If you weren’t blessed with naturally luscious lips like Angelina Jolie, no worries – you can still get them in about 20 minutes.

A 20 Minute Lip Transformation With Injectable Fillers
You heard right! A sexy pout can be yours with injectable fillers, a cosmetic medical treatment that involves an injection into your lips, making them fuller and more supple. The product injected is a naturally occurring substance in the human body known as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a type of sugar that exists in our skin and is essential in keeping it supple and elastic. By adding more of it into our lips, more moisture is attracted to its molecules thereby boosting overall volume, creating the pout you’ve always wanted. Hyaluronic acid-based injectable fillers are totally bio-compatible, which means you don’t need any prior allergy test.
The process takes about 20 minutes, and you’ll be able to see the improvement immediately. Results last a few months to a year.

For those of you who have low pain thresholds, this treatment may sound a little painful. After all, your lips are incredibly sensitive and have more nerve endings than other parts of your face and body. But you’ll be happy to know that your discomfort can be eased with a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) that can be applied right before the injection. You can also apply ice to create the same effect. Choosing a qualified and experienced injector will also help make the treatment more comfortable, since their expertise will allow you to feel less pain.

How Much Does It Cost? 

Millions of injectable filler treatments are performed every year around the world, because it has become one of the most popular ways to enhance the lips. The price depends on where you’re located and how much product you’ll need to be injected, amongst other factors. In Toronto injectable fillers treatments are about $500-$700.
Not bad for fuller, sexier lips in 20 minutes!

Kikay Pink Shop Underarm Whitening Set Cream Review (Underarm Chicken Skin Solution)


I have a very problematic underarm before. My underarm is very sensitive. On my teenage years i used deodorant which irritates my skin that caused me to have a dark underarm.Most of the Deodorants contain harsh chemicals that irritates the skin. As early as 17, i'm already plucking my UA and that's why I have to suffer from having chicken skin underarm. I undergone skin bleaching to whiten my Underam.It lightens my underam yet it did not help me to remove or even reduce the chicken skin texture. I even tried pricey derma underarm creams and other branded underam creams but they all end up disappointing me.
No Edits! No blemish free Edits! :)

I found this undearm whitening set from Kikay Pink Shop in the forum. I did not hesitate to try this Cream because of the good feedbacks. Much more I'm so despirate to achieve that flawless Underarm. LOL! I am using this cream before going to sleep. At first it will cause a visible peeling. It did not irritate my sensitive underarm. As early as 2 weeks it reduces the chicken skin texture of my Underarm plus it has a whitening effect. I immediately noticed the whitening effect of this cream on my underarm. I have been using this product for almost two years. It's a stop and go process, wherein, i will stop for one month then i will continue again for 2 consecutive months. I have been using this cream for 2 years! I'm still experiencing mild peeling with this cream. I love this cream so much! I owe my beautiful underarm from Kikay Pink Shop Underarm Cream . I highly recommend this cream for those ladies who don't want to spend big money for underarm peeling at derma! Give this a try ladies. I'm confident enough that you will not regret it! But ofcourse patience is a virtue when it comes to whitening!

5 Things You Didn't Know About Wrinkles

There’s a multi-billion dollar industry that supports our quest for smooth, wrinkle-free skin, and  BOTOX has become a household name.

Wrinkles are a mystery to many of us. Here are 5 things you probably didn’t know about these unsightly creases in the skin:

1. Suntanning accelerates the development of wrinkles. Contrary to what many people believe, tanning does not make you healthier. Long term sun exposure has been proven by dermatologists to be one of the biggest causes of wrinkles. This is because UV rays have a damaging effect on the skin, destroying collagen and elastin (proteins that are the building blocks of healthy skin) as well as robbing the skin of moisture that keeps it supple and elastic. The cumulative effects of years of suntanning cause rapid development of wrinkles and other signs of aging.

2. Dry skin wrinkles more easily than oily skin. If you’ve got a gleaming t-zone and are constantly trying to keep your oily skin under control, at least there’s one piece of good news: you probably won’t have as many wrinkles as someone with dry skin. Natural oils (sebum) serve to protect the skin from environmental damage and keep it supple, both of which keep wrinkles at bay.

3. Eating too much sugar can cause wrinkles. Unfortunately, this is a fact that has been proven by scientists. When you eat sugar, it kickstarts a process that ends in the development of a molecule called Advanced Glycation End Products. AGEs damage biomolecules, and the most important of these when it comes to skin are collagen and elastin.

4. You can’t fight wrinkles by drinking water alone. Although we all say to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, this consumption doesn’t directly moisturize the skin, smoothing away wrinkles. Drinking water is just a healthy habit that keeps our body’s physiological processes operating optimally and helps us flush away waste products that can contribute to the development of wrinkles.

If you want to complement your diet with wrinkle-fighting foods and beverages, look for flaxseed, walnuts, fatty fish and borage oil. All of these contain essential fatty acids that can help keep skin supple.

5. Women get wrinkles around their mouths faster than men. A Netherlands doctor found that women developed deeper wrinkles faster than men because of fewer oil glands, fewer blood vessels and muscles that are located closer to the skin (which means that there’s less padding between the two tissues, facilitating the development of dynamic wrinkles).

We’ve turned to all types of treatments to keep our skin flawless, but like any problem, the best solution is  prevention. Follow a healthy lifestyle, get your beauty sleep and protect your skin from the sun!

 I bought CALECHE by Hermes for WOMEN, a gift for my Mom. I bought it for $130.00 at ebay.

Hair Removal Hot and Cold Wax at Home (Epilin Review)


Epilin Hair Remover  (hot wax) and Cold Wax.

I hoard Epilin. Epilin is always out of stock. Sometimes i have to order online to purchase Epilin. The cold wax tubs came from Qatar (A pasalubong from my cousin). I don't know the brand of this cold wax because it is labeled in Arabic.  I'm not that hairy. I am using Epilin wax to remove armpit hair once a month. I love the Epilin hot wax more than the cold wax because it removes the root of my armpit hair. Instead  I'm using the cold wax to remove my hair down there. Compared to our local cold waxing products for  hair removal, this Qatar cold wax is stickier and can pull a lot of hair. Middle East have the best wax hair removal products. In Middle Eastern societies, removal of body hair has been considered proper hygiene.  


Instruction for  Epilin Application:

 It is advisable to do waxing after bathing and before going to sleep.

1. Place the melting pan on low heat. Press the wax down with the spatula; the melted wax will rise to the surface. Melt only as much wax as you need.
2.Let wax cool until consistency is similar to honey - not too hot. Spread wax in a strip on clean, dry skin - one strip at a time. For good result, wash skin with soap or astringent before waxing.
3. Let wax strip cool for a few moments until it doesn't stick anymore when touched. Then lift the lowest end of the wax strip - against hair growth - and pull it off the skin in one quick, smooth motion.  Repeat as required. To avoid breaking, don't let the wax harden too long.
 

Warning: Slight reddening of the skin is normal after wax treatment. Do not use on sensitive, broken or irritated skin.
                Be careful with hot wax because it can burn the skin.

Yes, it is painful but you will  get used to the pain. :) You can also put a talcum powder on your skin before doing the procedure. Talcum powder keeps hot wax from sticking to skin. Do not wash, apply creams or any solution within 8 hours after waxing. Your pores are open at this time and prone to skin irritation.  Epilin is so cheap. It is available in 100g (₱180.00), 45g (₱120-130.00) and 500g

I purchased epilin at http://myworld.ebay.ph/bodylicious.beauty/

Happy Waxing. :)
