When I was in college and still studying, I admit that I have tons of “I want these,” “I want that,” and so on. My wish list is never-ending while my money is only enough for what I need. As much as possible, I would only buy things for myself that are very useful and not just because everyone has it. Fast forward to the present when I already have my job and earning enough to give back to my family and finance myself, I make sure that I treat myself from time to time since I’ve been working 5 ½ days a week. (I always tell myself: TREAT YO’ SELF!!!)
However, working from home has its pros and cons. I could list down all the pros in a different blog post, but one of the cons of working from home is that you’ll end up not having much time to go out and do some shopping. (Well, for me it’s also a good thing because yes to saving money!) Since I’m always at home, online shopping sites have been my best buddies. When I’m shopping for clothes, I always go to Instagram to check out online shops there. When it comes to makeup and skincare products, I always go to my trusted online shopping site, BeautyMNL.
Why BeautyMNL? Simple, because I can reach affordable products without having a hard time to order, pay, and receive my items. I’ve tried buying from other makeup and skincare online shops, but BeautyMNL is the only one that relates so much to all of us women in different colors and skin types. That’s why when BeautyMNL reached out to me to give their site a test run, I obviously gave it a go and accepted their generous offer!
I know it’s not only me who wants to take care of their skin and look more beautiful without breaking their bank, that’s why I’m sharing you what I got. PS: These products are all under P500!
L’Oreal Paris True Match Concealer P300
To be honest, I’m still in love with Maybelline Fit Me concealer; it took me 6 months to finish one tube. Just in time to choose the products, Maybelline Fit Me concealer is out of stock. I checked out L’Oreal Paris since I don’t know any affordable concealer. After reading the reviews on the review section, I was convinced how soft and easy to blend it is. Two weeks have passed since I received my order and I still haven’t tried this yet. I’ll make a separate blog post, a review perhaps, about this soon!
Pond’s Flawless White BB Cream P299
My one and only BB cream!!! I’m not a foundation type of girl and I always opt to use BB cream as my makeup base since it’s more lightweight for my liking. This is my third purchase of Pond’s Flawless White BB Cream and the Beige shade matches my skin tone. I tried their first shade, Light, and I think it’s too light for my skin. Pond’s Flawless White BB Cream is a 2-in-1 product: a whitening cream and a light foundation that gives a “naturally flawless no-makeup look.” Indeed, this product can lighten my blemishes and dark spots; it evens out my skin tone without looking cakey; natural to medium coverage and of course it protects my skin from harmful rays with its SPF30. Talking about multi-functional, right?
St. Ives Face Scrub Blemish Control Apricot P205
This product is not new to everyone since St. Ives has established a good reputation for almost all women around the globe. Despite its popularity, I haven’t tried using St. Ives not until I decided to add face scrub in my skincare routine. I use St. Ives Face Scrub Blemish Control Apricot every weekend and this is my instant favorite!!! I was literally shaking when I tried it for the first time – I almost cried. After using it, my face got smoother and squeaky clean. What amazes me most is that it removes (or lessen) my white and blackheads! I can almost remove the pore stripping step to my skincare routine. Ron tried this once and he was also shocked and amazed with its magical effect to our faces. My Holy Grail skin care product!!!
Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream P294
Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream has been sitting in my shopping cart for a long time before I checked it out because I’m still convincing myself as to why I needed an eye cream. Upon buying and trying it, I did not regret; this works so well! It effectively lightened up my dark circles and reduced the puffiness, I wouldn’t mind going out without putting concealer sometimes! Even though the package is 5ml only, it will run for a long time because you will only need a little amount for the skin around your eyes.
It took me an entire day contemplating and choosing the products I’ll get, and I already received the items the next day! I didn’t even try to track my order because I know it will knock on my door in a couple of hours. Talking about the how fast their delivery, right? Aside from how awesome they really are, what I also love is their magazine, Bloom. I always check Bloom for transparent and up-to-date reviews and articles. Some of my recent reads are 5 Products That Help Control Hormonal Breakouts, Top Reviews This Week: Colourette, Sleek MakeUp, and More!, and Shade Matcher: Foundation Swatches for L’oreal Paris, Maybelline, and NYX.
