Daiso Falsies and L'oreal BB Cream

I went to Daiso and saw a lot of falsies! It's only $1.50 a set so I grabbed a couple to try. I also bought a pill box to store my lashes. I haven't tried the lashes yet, so I can't really tell anything about it yet.

I dropped by Ulta to use my coupon and membership points. I got the L'oreal BB Cream (about $9) to try. I want something quick to put on my face, just to even it out. Being a new mom, sometimes I have no time to fully wear makeup. So far, I'm liking the coverage. The only thing that bummed me out is it doesn't contain SPF. So I still have to put my moisturizer + sunscreen underneath. It's working for me, no breakout, glides smoothly and even out my skintone. I don't have that much to cover up, and my skin is behaving right now, so I only need to cover my dark circles (from lack of sleep), redness on my nose, and a few acne scars. I will definitely repurchase this one when I ran out. I'm wearing LIGHT and it color blends well on me.

My April Favorites!

I'm posting my skincare favorites for the month of April!
I haven't been putting on too much makeup lately so this time, I'll say thank you for my skincare routine that helped my post-pregnancy skin! I can say that most of the time now, I don't have to wear makeup to go out to do a quick errand.
I'm loving Philosophy Skincare! I got the whole set last Christmas (from hubby) and regret not using it earlier! My skin got really nice and even my aesthetician noticed it! I added the Etude House Wonderpore Freshner recently, which I also got last Christmas (given by my younger sister). The whole set is by far my favorite regimen!

Hourglass Immaculate Foundation

My recent buy during the Sephora Chic Week: Hourglass Immaculate Foundation in Nude.
I've been wanting to try this for a long time now and finally was able to with the 15% off coupon for $50.96. Original price was freaking $55 (tax not included) for 1 fl. oz.!
Anyway, I got to try it and I really want to love it. But it just won't work on my skin type. This works best for normal to oily skin. I do have dry to combination skin so wearing this accentuates the dryness on my upper lip, around my nose and the creases on my forehead. On my cheeks it is very flawless. It does look and feel like powder once it sets on your skin, mattifying too. I was shine-free in about 5hrs of wear and no need for touch-ups.
I applied this both using my fingers and using a foundation brush. No primer and no setting powder. Didn't transfer on clothes. But like I've said, I really want to love this, because it really look flawless, but up close...you can see the dry patches. Again, this will work best on people with normal to oily skin. Sadly, not for me :(

My Latest Discovery

It's the Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer.
I tried it today and this is my first impression:
If you're familiar with spray sunscreens, it is similar to this. However, I find that you have to spray this away from anything or anybody else to avoid spraying lotion on them too...like my dresser. It wipes away but it's a hassle to clean up every after spray.
Anyway, I find it easy to use once you get the hang of it. Really saves time when in a hurry. And you have to spray continuously to avoid spraying too much product on one spot.

BzzCampaign: Schick Hydro Silk


Hi Guys! I got another box from BzzAgent to try and review. It's the Schick Hydro Silk Razor. 

What They Say:
With the Schick Hydro Silk® razor, you go beyond an incredibly close shave to actually care for your skin. Only Schick Hydro Silk® razors include Water-Activated Moisturizing Serum to hydrate your skin for up to two hours after shaving and 5 Curve-Sensing blades with skin guards to help reduce irritation.
Couple that with a soft touch handle and compact oval cartridges that fit the contours of a woman’s body, and you can see why the Schick Hydro Silk® razor was last year’s most awarded new razor.* Make the simple switch to a Schick Hydro Silk® razor in 2013. (The silky smooth legs will follow, trust us.)

This is what's inside the package:

I'm actually using this brand for a long time now, and I have one exact item. So I gave it to my sister for her to try. I also gave away the coupons to my female friends and my husband's female friends too. They were so happy to get extra savings (coupon) so they can try the item themselves.

My own opinion: Like I've said, I've been using this for a long time now because I don't need a shaving gel or cream prior to using this. I use this during shower and it does glides on smoothly. Never got dry patches after shaving.

My sister and my friends said: They like it too, they like the idea of 5-blades. They said it left them nick-free! And skipped the hassle of using shaving cream / gel as well. They will continue to use this and will try other Schick products as well.

Overall: this product is for keeps :)

* I'm a BzzAgent and got the whole package (item and coupons) for free. I get to try them and review them. Go to BzzAgent website for more info and how you can be a BzzAgent too*

BzzCampaign: Morning Star Burgers




I got another package from BzzAgent.
I'm a BzzAgent and I get stuff to try and review. Go to their website for more info.
Anyway, it's the Morning Star Burgers. I got the coupon to use to get a free box to try and review. I also got a few coupons to give away to friends.
I got 2 boxes, one I used the " free" coupon and the other one I used the dollar off coupon. I got to try it with my dad and my hubby one evening when I didn't have time to cook! Perfect for a new mom like me.
I was impressed on how easy to cook this straight from the freezer! Just heat up a non-stick pan and cook it for 8 mins. I bought some burger buns earlier so we had burgers for dinner! Put some spinach, cheese, cucumber, mayo and ketchup...yummy!
Taste: it doesn't taste like frozen dinner. It tastes fresh.
Portion: regular box comes with 4 burger patties. Circumference is a tad bigger than the burger buns ;)
Would buy again! I think I'll use all the coupons for myself and buy all the flavors they have!
