Too Cool For School Blending BB Cream

Too Cool For School Blending Cream BB Review

Please note that I only have a sample packet of the Too Cool For School’s Blending Cream BB and I’ve only used the product for 3 consecutive days. With each use, I applied the product right after toweling my face dry, without a primer underneath. I haven’t seen any other swirly bb cream before. I also haven’t seen any other bb cream that doesn’t have SPF. When I checked the website, titanium dioxide was high up on the ingredients list. But there was no mention of how much the SPF rating is. Here’s a photo of a full-size bottle taken from…

Avon Skin Goodness BB Cream Review and Swatches

7 years ago, in a Skin Food store, I sampled what I now realize is the first BB cream I’ve ever tried. I didn’t like it because there wasn’t a shade that matched me and it was so hard to spread out. They say BB creams were initially made to protect skin after undergoing a laser procedure. That makes a lot of sense because BB creams, particularly the earlier releases, form a layer of product similar to a diaper rash cream. Since there is no certifying body that qualifies which tinted face cream should or should not be labeled as…

Kanebo Freshel Moist Lift Mineral BB Cream

Kanebo Freshel Moist Lift Mineral BB Cream Review

I am disappointed by the lack of google-able information on Kanebo Freshel Moist Lift Mineral BB Cream. I couldn’t find the ingredients list aside from a vague blurb in the kanebo.sg website. Moisture Ingredients [Yeast extract] will soften the skin that hardens from dryness. Penetrating [Adhesive Collagen] and [Double hyaluronic acid] sinks deeply and quickly into the skin. To be honest, “yeast” and “adhesive” doesn’t sound enticing to me. This product has SPF 23 PA++ as stated on the website. Unlike most BB creams, this doesn’t have strong ashy grey tones. To all my light-medium yellow-olive ladies out there, this might be…

Lush Ponche Shower Gel Review

Technically, my first drink was wine because our dad have us drink it every New Year’s eve. But, my first real drink was in college, at the end of our 2nd year. I can still remember clearly that we drank a bottle of tequila. My college friends stopped me on my 9th shot because they knew it was my first time and they were worried for me. Only I was far from drunk, my face wasn’t red at all, and I can still walk a straight line. They said it was beginner’s luck. I say I got it from my father. My dad is not an…

Conclusion: 7-Day Shiseido White Lucent Challenge

Sometime during the earlier part of the week’s challenge… I will forever remember last week as the week when I found out how much E takes my beauty blogging hobby seriously. He kept checking how my face is doing. Haha. After 7 days, I didn’t experience significant change spots-wise, but skin texture-wise, oh… my… goodness… My skin looked smoother, my pores seem blurred, and my fine lines seem diffused. My skin got the most compliments it’s gotten in 29.75 years. Wish my skin could look like this forever. The serum and the mask didn’t make my skin lighter. I didn’t…

Starting the 7-Day Shiseido White Lucent Challenge

I wasn’t supposed to do this but considering how much it’s priced, I need to do a before-and-after. One 30 ml bottle costs Php 5,650 — with that price tag, I want to see a significant change on the evenness of my skin. Shiseido and Sample Room gave out samples of the Power Brightening Mask as well as 9ml bottles of the Spot Targeting Serum (proportionately, it would cost Php 1,695.) If you take a quick look, my skin already seems even-toned. My skin has been behaving well the past months and my post-acne pigmentation marks are down to the…
