My skin's best tool: Watsons' Facial Massager

Hello ladies! It's a week before Christmas, and I guess everybody's looking forward to spend time with their loved ones. I wish every one a safe and happy Christmas! ^_^

Recently, I decided to de-clutter my closet, and found out that I have some items that I could use on my already stressed out skin. Sure, I like to go out and get facials and diamond peels, but there are times that I would be too lazy to drag my a** to Dermaline (that's where I usually have my facials and DP sessions) and would rather stay at home. I know, a have a very un-healthy lifestyle, and true enough, it sometimes manifests thru my skin. Thank you to whoever inventedClarisonic (been lusting for it for a few years now), but no thanks to the hefty price tag. I really don't see a need for me to spend over $100 for something that I would only use to wash my face!

And then, I saw this,sitting inside my closet.

It's a facial massager from Watson's. This was a gift given to me by my SIL for my birthday last year.

It comes with the main unit, 4 attachments and an instruction manual. The main unit runs on 2 AA batteries.

What it looks like when taken out of the box.

Massaging Roller. This is used after putting on your moisturizer before you go to sleep. Simply run this all over your face, and feel its relaxing and soothing action.

Cleaning Brush: This is my favorite among all 4 attachments. Say goodbye to manual cleaning. This effectively removes all of my makeup at the end of the day, which only means that I have less chances of developing acne because of makeup. Yey!

It comes with soft bristles that do not irritate the skin at all! On how I use this to wash my face, I simply put a pea size amount of my facial wash onto the brush, switch on the unit, and then I run it all over my face for about 1-2mins. Then I rinse the suds off, leaving no residue behind, only clean, clear skin!

Pumice Stone. Now, this is the attachment that I have NOT used on my face. I use this to soften the callus on my feet after I take a bath.

Sponge Applicator. I used this once to buff out my blush when I put on too much. I find this a bit rough, though, but it did a nice job of buffing the excess color.

The power button is so soft to touch.

The best thing is that, this baby costs less than P500, I think. This may not be as good as the Clarisonic, but it sure does similar things just like a Clarisonic would. So if you don't have a lot of cash to burn, but would like to maintain clear looking skin, then this is definitely worth a try.

One thing that you should remember is that this unit is NON WATERPROOF. So if you would like to use this in the bathroom, make sure that one of your hands is dry. You can wet and rinse your face with just one hand. :)

Available in selected Watsons' outlets nationwide.

I think I need to dig further into my closet. I may find more useful stuff in there. Hahaha!

Stay pretty, ladies! ^_^ I love reading your comments, so keep on posting 'em! ;)

Careline Lipgloss tubes and palettes from Props

If there's anything that I love the most, it's getting good deals out of my hard earned money. I have always believed that there are quality products that wont create dents on your budget, and makeup is no exception to this statement. So whenever I see something that's worth buying and affordable at the same time, I do not think twice. Call me impulsive, but I guess that's me. :)

Props Tools and Cosmetics. Sometime in September or October of this year, Ensogo sold discounted vouchers for Props Tools and Cosmetics. Props is a brand that's new to me, so when I saw this offer on Ensogo, I bought some vouchers and placed an order for 2 of their palettes. I got The Carnival and The Disco Matte palettes.

Let's start with The Carnival palette. Encased in a matte plastic finish, this is very similar, if not the same, with Dollface's Avant Garde palette. Great for everyday and party looks.

Picture with flash. It looks shimmery, but they are highly pigmented, believe me. I was also surprised!

Picture without flash. This palette comes with 88 eye shadows and each pan is about the size of a ten centavo coin. See the vibrant yellows, reds, oranges, blues and neutrals? I'd call this a year-round, all around palette. :)

Swatches. Yes, they're very pigmented baby!

This is the Disco Palette, matte version. Same matte case, but without the Props logo. I wonder what happened to it? Hmmm.

It comes with 32 eye shadows and 10 cheek colors (mix of blushes and bronzers). This palette is not 100% matte, though. I have spotted a few semi shimmery colors in this palette.

Swatches. Not as pigmented as The Carnival palette, but this can be easily fixed with a good primer.

The blush pans is like the size of a 5 peso coin. They matte ones are pigmented, so a light hand is necessary in applying them, and the shimmery ones are nice when applied over the matte ones.

The pink one is gorgeous.

Careline Lipgloss with Vitamin E. I have read reviews about these babies, about them being good substitutes for lipsticks, and since they're only Php 60 per tube, I decided to get some of them. I have tested the shimmery colors and found them to be too shimmery and gritty, so I settled for the matte shades.

From L-R: 107, 101, 111, 102, 110

Swatches: From L-R: 107, 101, 111, 102, 110 (Look how pigmented they are.. these are lipsticks in test tubes!)

Shade 107 for me is a nude,raisin colored lip gloss, while Shade 101 leans towards the nude-beige-y side. Shade 110 comes in a bold red orange-y tint, while Shade 102 is a fun baby pink color. Shade 110 is a brown colored lip gloss that would go great with a smokey eye look, IMO.

Do you like great bargains? Post your thoughts here! ^_^

Love lots,
