Review: Hello Everybody Nature Holic Body Lotion (Moringa)

Hey reader! Thanks for dropping by my blog. I’ve been wanting to post about my review on this product as I’ve been using it for a month now. 


I’m totally happy with the moisturizing effect as my skin has always been dry. I’ve read from Althea Korea before I purchased this product about its benefits and ingredients. They also included reviews which is really cool! I love Althea Korea

Aside from the lotion, there are other Moringa products to choose from. There is a shampoo, conditioner and body wash. I’ve used the body lotion so far and I’m really happy about it. 


According to their product info, they are using Ceramide and natural ingredients for moisture lock up. Another thing I love about this product is it has amazing scent. It reminds me of The Body Shop’s morninga perfume that I’ve used years back. 

If you have dry skin and you love scented body lotion, I’d recommend this product! 

I’m giving this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 

An SPF would make it a perfect 5 for me!

First Impression: Aqua Blossom White Effect OLED Cream

While shopping at Althea Korea, this caught my attention. I was actually looking for a moisturizer which can also lighten dark skin areas so this would be perfect! 

Got this for 73% off! 

P440 instead of P1640👏🏼

These are found on Althea Korea website:


50g/ 1.6FL Oz.


It’s got a nice packaging 😍


There’s a button to press for the product to come out! 🤗 It’s hygienic 💕


You can also regulate the amount of product you wanna get from it.


There’s an instant effect. My arm obviously has been applied with the product. 😊

I’d have to do another review for the long term effect of this product. 

Description on the box:

“WHITE EFFECT OLED CREAM” which contains diamond powders, brings clear and pure skin for it is using much pearl extracts instead of purified water and it contains authenticated whitening ingredients as much as possible which feels like cream and will brighten user’s own skin color by using it immediately. 

How my skin feels: It’s not that moisturizing. It leaves a matte finish but because my skin is quite dry, it highlights my lines. However, this is on my arms and hands. On my face, it’s good to be used as a primer for my BB Cream. 

For my first impression rating, I’d give it 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Review: Innisfree Manuka Honey Mask

From Innisfree Website:
Moisturize your skin with the manuka honey It’s real squeeze mask!

1. It’s real squeeze mask – manuka honey
Manuka honey from New Zealand’s manuka flowers has abundant nutrients for healthier skin.

2. Jeju green complex
The Jeju green complex consists of green tea, tangerine, cactus, camellia leaves, and orchids to keep your skin healthy.

3. Triple-layered sheet
This triple-layer sheet has a long-lasting moisturizing effect so that the essence can gradually be absorbed into the skin.
How to use

1. After washing your face, gently apply toner on your face to even out your skin texture. 

2. Then, apply the mask over your entire face, avoiding your eye and lip areas.

3. Remove the mask after 10-20 minutes and gently pat your face to allow the remaining formula to absorb into your skin.


My experience:

I have a combination type of skin but it’s more on the dry side. This mask is super hydrating! Others might find this greasy or too heavy in moisture but for me, it’s just right. 😊 I might not always prefer this over fruity or herbal masks but I’m fine with this mask every 2 weeks to give my skin more moisture. After using the mask, I had to let the remaining formula be absorbed on my skin since it’s not a wash off type. It’s really a  thick formula, I’d say. 

I’m currently using avocado emulsion and it’s great at doing its job in keeping my skin moisturized but I don’t mind using this mask every two weeks to get the many skin benefits from Manuka Honey 🍯. 

In case you haven’t encountered Manuka Honey, here are some benefits from Mindbodygreen :

Heals acne: Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, manuka honey reduces redness and heals congested or inflamed skin and eczema. Additionally, Manuka oxygenates pores to draw out bacteria, drastically improving acne-prone areas.
Repairs skin: Manuka promotes skin regeneration, repairs cellular damage and lessens scarring.
Hydrates: When applied to your skin, manuka will hold in moisture and absorb moisture from the air for a dewy, glowing complexion.
Anti-aging: Because of its moisturizing properties, manuka retains moisture without making skin oily, the first step in wrinkle-free skin. It also inhibits MMP, a group of enzymes that destroy collagen.

My Pore Care Essentials

I don’t have too many open pores but a portion of my cheeks and nose have more open pores than the rest of my facial skin. I’ve been using these two products to help me take care of my pores, minimize them and keep them away from breakouts. 


I’m using A’Pieu Stone Peach Pore Less Freshner after cleansing my face. I use a cotton pad to wipe my face with it. This product is mild, it doesn’t feel like there is any alcohol content. I like that it can show visible results in minimizing my pores. I love that I can buzz off right after using this product and I won’t feel dry on my face. It’s like a liquid moisturizer/ cleanser. 

I’m also using EcoSkinLove Witch Hazel Toner. It’s really a great buy! It’s the only toner which makes my skin really feeling clean while minimizing my pores, too. What I like about this product is it also helps in getting rid of pimples. Witch hazel has a lot of skin care benefits and being anti-acne is one of those. I always have these period breakouts. They appear on my temple or forehead usually and they’re painful sometimes. When I use this toner, the pimples easily dry up and starts healing. Unlike the other brands of witch hazel toners I’ve tried in the past or even those I just sniffed at Watson’s (LOL), this toner doesn’t smell too strong. I get that witch hazel is a medicinal plant and it should have some herbal scent but there are brands that I really can’t use because of the strong scent! I love this EcoSkinLove witch hazel toner.

I hope this can help anyone who has large pore problems.

Review: Snow Skin Whitening Soap

I’ve been hearing good things about this product so when I was buying some medicine at Mercury Drugstore, I took one box to finally give it a try. 

To my readers outside Southeast Asia, you might not know this but whitening is huge here. I personally don’t believe that people who are more fair are the only ones beautiful but I believe that uneven skin tone looks weird unless it’s a swimwear tan line 😀 Moving on…

Snow Skin Whitening Soap 7Plants Extract from the Swiss Alps. (Made in the Philippines)


On the box, it has ingredients, directions and warning. 

Inside the box, it has 2 sheets of information about their formulation (Alpaflor Gigawhite) and a little diagram on its effect to the skin, its inhibition of tyrosinase. They claim to be using 7 plants which synergistically work in maximizing whitening effect by inhibiting tyrosinase which largely involved in melanin biosynthesis. 

Functions:

•Skin lightening activity

•Reduction of age spots color intensity 

•Evening of skin tone 

They also claim to use raw materials that are according to ecological and organic cosmetic standards.

My observation

PROS:

It showed significant improvement in skin lightening. I have uneven skin tone on my arms and legs due to frequent sun exposure recently. I could see the effect on my skin in just 5 days. It lathers well and it doesn’t dry my skin as much as other whitening soaps. Value for money. It’s only 149 PHP for 135 gms. 

CONS:

It has a funny scent of something fermented. I think they do not want to add any scent but I also think it would be better to have one to mask this weird scent. Floral would work for this kind of soap 😉 It said on the directions to leave the soap for 2-3 minutes before rinsing but I couldn’t leave it longer than a minute because it feels itchy. I feel a little irritation while it’s on my skin. No redness but the ‘feels’ is kind of strong. That’s why I didn’t use it on my face. It’s glycerine-based but unlike most glycerine-based soaps, this one melts faster. 

My Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5

This soap is overall a great buy. Value for money, proven effective! I might buy another one to continue my mission of evening my skin tone :p
