What it says on the website:
An unscented eye balm applied under the eye during the night to diminish puffiness, firm skin and reduce lines. It also lightens dark circles and moisturizes the most sensitive area of the eye.
organic beeswax, sweet almond oil, apricot seed oil, coconut stearate, collagen, vitamin k, calendula extract, vitamin e, grapefruit extract and orris root extract
What I honestly think about it:
- It looks and smells like Sebo de Macho. But it does not bother me at all.
- The pot was filled to the brim when I got it. You get maximum value for your money.
- I find it quite unhygienic dipping my fingers into the pot to get some product out, but to solve that, just make sure that you have clean fingers before you use this.
- The product actually works! I have been using it for 3 weeks now, and I have noticed that my under eye area is moisturized and puffiness is nowhere to be found now.
- For only Php100, it is well worth the money you paid for it.
- Will I repurchase? I definitely would.
SkinHour products are available at Shopsui and Backstage-Serendra outlets, and through their Multiply site. Grab this item now to enjoy the benefits that it offers,at a price that you'll definitely not regret.

Hello there! I am down to my last two weeks of vacation,which means less time for my son and blogging. Ugh. Anyway, being at home most of the time allows me to surf the net more, and visit one of my fave sites, eyeslipsface.com, and upon doing so, I stumbled upon these babies:

Aromaleigh, or AL for short, has been making women beautiful through its makeup line for the past 12 years. It has been a long and winding journey for the company, and I'm sure the people behind Aromaleigh have enjoyed this and have reaped the fruits of their hard labor.
Unfortunately, every journey needs to come to an end, and the time has come for AL to bid farewell to its loyal customers. Rumors have circulated thru the Net, which forced Kristen, the owner, to finally close AL's doors. We may never know the real reason behind AL closing down, but Im certain that this MMU (mineral makeup) line will be missed by many.
Nuff said. On to the "good" stuff. AL's offering a 35% discount on remaining stocks (code: ADIEU35). This prompted me to purchase full sizes of their famous ultra resolution finishing powder (or URFP, for short),which is one of the best products AL has to offer.
URFP is AL's version of high definition powder, but better because they made 4 different shades of it to match different skin tones. I got 2 of their best selling shades: Translucent and Peaches and Cream.
I got my package in about 2 weeks, which is kinda fast for First Class International mail option.

If there's a cartoon character that I absolutely adore, that would be Hello Kitty. Weird though, because Im not fond of cats,but this cutie is an exception. :D
Last year, MAC had a collection featuring Hello Kitty. This time, it's Maybelline's turn, although we're just talking about one product here. This adorable limited edition Hello Kitty mascara comes in the same formula that the regular Volum' Express Cat Eyes mascara does, so if you're a fan of this mascara, then there's no reason for you not to get this one. After all, it's limited edition (I'm such an enabler). :D
This will hit the Maybelline counters by August 2010. SRP is Php 499 only. Limited stocks only, so grab this while you could!
ELF eyelash curler, Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Blush, Revlon Photoready foundation in Natural Beige (I believe I got the wrong shade), ELF All over cover stick in Honey, ELF Cream eyeliner in Black, Maybelline Volume Express Cat Eyes Mascara, Marionnaud's Pointed eyeshadow brush, and Marionnaud's slanted blush brush
And I am so broke, LOL.
How about you? What comes in your mind when you're restless? :D
Lots of Love,
Finally, I was able to get my grubby hands on some NYX round lipsticks. I immediately grabbed the chance to purchase when sis Sol of digitaltraincase announced via her blog that she has some NYX items for sale. I've heard so many good things about these babies, and being the "inggitera" that I am (LOL), I decided to give them a try as well.
Lip Swatches (with flash, please forgive my dry old lips)
What I like about it:
- Very creamy texture. I actually dropped Indian Pink and created a small mess on our floor,and when I scooped it up with my finger, I was welcomed with,well, a very creamy mess.But of course, upon application, I also felt the creamy texture that comes with every swipe.
- Pigmentation is very,very good. I am very delighted with the fact that with every swipe that I make,it makes the colors even more vibrant and lively.
- It glides smoothly across my lips,even without lip balm underneath.
- For Php 160, you cant go wrong with it.
- Wide selection of colors available thru their website.
- These babies are rare gems; Generally,they are not available locally. You cant find these in our malls. I was only lucky when I saw that announcement from Sol's blog.
- Lasting power is just so-so. But again, with the price that you pay for it, I guess that's okay.
I am very much anxious to try out other colors! But I guess it'll have to wait for now,since I have my baby's baptism coming up in a month's time, and finances will be a bit tight for me since I'm still on maternity leave.

I have seen numerous reviews from fellow bloggers about these masks. I think I've seen these before at Landmark Makati, but never paid any attention to it until I saw reviews from Pinay bloggers. So far I have only seen good reviews about it, and I can't wait to get my hands on them! Unfortunately, when I dropped by Megamall 2-3 weeks ago, I couldnt find the masks! Huhuhu, but anyway, I googled them up and found out that they do come in several yummy and irresistable flavors.. I just hope that they stock up on these here in Manila.
Here is the actual site: Montagne Jeunesse Masks
And some of the to-die-for flavors are (pics and descriptions courtesy of Montagne Jeunesse's official website):

Hi! I'm currently on maternity leave,waiting for the arrival of my lil bundle of joy. Im expected to give birth soon, and once that happens, I'll let you guys know. :D
I have to tell you that my pregnancy taught me a lot of things, and one of them is using organic products. Lately I have been on an organic products splurge, and one of the organic brands that I'm currently addicted to is By Nature Handmade soaps. The soaps are very skin friendly, and is reasonably priced since the bars are kinda large, they would last you a long time, provided that you follow the instructions given.
I made my purchases thru Ebay and Dianne's site. I ordered Olive Beauty, Cocoa Butter Melt, MilkenHoney, and Icy Choco. Descriptions are from the official By Nature website, but I have added a few things just to let you know on what I personally think about them.

Olive Beauty - Using this castile soap everyday will keep your skin soft and supple. Olive oil is known to nourish the skin and help it retain its moisture. It also provides protection for all skin types, especially for dry and sensitive skin. This olive oil-enriched bar is so mild that it is safe to use even on infants. Price: P155.00 for a 120-150g bar
What I think about it: This is a very good soap for those who have uber dry skin. It kept my skin moisturized, but still it wasn't enough for my uber uber dry skin. I guess being pregnant made my skin very dry,and with the kind of weather that we have right now, having dry, dehydrated skin can't be avoided. But for those who just wants extra moisture, this is the right bar for you.
Milkenhoney - The perfect soap for those who love anything with milk and honey. The milk makes your skin feel extra soft and supple after every wash, while the honey acts as a natural moisturizer and antibacterial. Price: P95.00/120-150g bar
What I think about it: I love this soap. It cleanses very well without leaving any icky residue behind, and moisturizes at the same time. I use this on my face twice a day for about 2 weeks now, and I havent experienced any nasty breakouts with this soap. Highly recommended.
Icy Choco - For chocolate-mint lovers, enjoy bathing with the stimulating scent of peppermint and the mild exfoliation of cocoa powder. This delicious-looking soap will leave your skin feeling cool and refreshed all over. It also gives out a wonderful lather which is simply a bonus for you! Price: P95.00/120-150g bar
What I think about it: LOVE! This is my favorite among all the bars that I have purchased. The minty feeling is perfect for the scorching hot weather that we have right now, and the scent leaves me and my bathroom smelling good. Even hubby likes it.
Cocoa Butter Melt - Your skin will get all the pampering it needs from the cocoa butter in this soap, with soothing and emollient qualities that will leave your skin all soft and moisturized. Price: P95.00/120-150g bar
What I think about it: I was surprised when I saw that this bar had very small grains in it, since it wasnt a part of the description. But that did not make this a bad soap; Surprisingly, I like this better than Olive Beauty because I just think that my skin loved this soap more than the latter. But it's just my opinion.
Overall, I'm happy with BNHS soaps. Caring for your skin has never been this good. I will definitely repurchase once I've run out of them.
