Living in a tropical country with its pollution and busy lifestyle gives me so much to stress about especially to my face. My face has an oily skin type and finding good products to lessen the oil was quite hard. These past few months, I have used several skincare products such as facial wash, BB cream, and concealer for me to find out what is really best for me. This Christmas, I was able to receive few skincare and hair products that (I think) works best for my skin type. All thanks to my family for giving these as their gifts; they really know what I want, eh? 🙂
I have to admit, my hair is not really good and I always have the need to visit a salon for some hair treatment but it costs too much. I received this Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner together with the new Volume Nourishment Root Lift Spray. What I love about Dove’s Oxygen and Nourishment products is that it is formulated with Oxyfusion technology giving the hair with more volume, softness, and smoothness. I love the smell, too!
I have been seeing Simple products around the internet for some time now; being reviewed and featured by various bloggers and makeup/skincare enthusiasts. The Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash claims to be a soap-free facial wash that gently cleanses sensitive skin. What I love about it at first is the packaging and its design; so simple! I am about to try it once I am finished with my other facial wash, pretty excited to see how amazing it really is.
Micellar Water has also grown its name to the makeup/skincare world now. I honestly do not know how it works, but I know that I got to try it (really cheap, though.) Maybelline’s Micellar Water 4-in-1 has a water-based formula that removes makeup; cleanses, tones, and moisturizes skin. It removes oil, dirt, and other impurities. I also love the fact that it is fragrance-free, alcohol-free, and oil-free. I used it once the other day before I go to bed and I was really satisfied how my face feels and look like the morning I woke up. Again, I do not know how micellar water works, but it works so amazingly.
I use BB Cream as the base or primer for my everyday makeup. I tried several products and Pond’s is what I like best. Pond’s BB Cream in shade of Beige is a whitening cream plus light foundation; it gives a naturally flawless and no-makeup look. I have been using this for a few months now and I like its lightweight consistency that gives me the feeling like I am not wearing any makeup at all; very natural, not sticky, not oily, perfect for my everyday look.
When it comes to concealer, I have been a lover of it since I was in high school. I used it to cover up my dark circles and other skin impurities. I tried to use Etude’s but I decided to put it off because of its dewy finish – not really what I like. Because of various convincing reviews, I gave Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer a try. Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer in shade of Sand delivers a buildable coverage; it evens out skin tone and conceals blemishes. Just like the Pond’s BB Cream, I love how lightweight it is and feels very natural to my face. My holy grail concealer!
That’s it! I cannot wait to try these all out and see what good these will bring to my face and hair. Happy holidays!
