[Review] L'oreal Lucent Magique BB Cream

If I am not mistaken, this is the first beauty product review that I have written. The creators of the  BDJ Box encourages their subscribers to review the contents inside. Since I won one last week, I would like to give back by writing about the products.  I'm new to beauty blogging so pardon me if I miss out some points. 


The first product that I tried was the L'oreal Lucent Magique BB Cream. Why? It's because it reminded me of Korean cosmetics. BB cream is a Korean innovation and I am curious at the western brands's take on it.

Here is the official statement from the BDJ Box:


L'oreal Lucent Magique Skin Illuminating BB Cream 
Instantly brightens skin and evens out your skin colour with its lightweight formula.
L'oreal Lucent Magique BB Cream sample from BDJ Box.

As shown above, the sample came in a small 5mL squeeze bottle. I started using it on my birthday. The content is a viscous glossy white cream. The product spread smoothly to my face upon application. True to its claim of being lightweight, I could not feel the heavy powder finish that I usually get with other Korean brands. 

The result? This product gave me an instant illuminating effect as it proclaimed. My skin gave out that pearly sheen which is just light and not so 'in-your-face'. I like it. It seems that my face really gave out that glow. It reflected light excellently! As for the other effects, I now have firmer skin. I guess this product also have anti-aging ingredients. 

For breakouts, I cannot tell you that much. I usually have tiny pimples on my forehead and cheeks, which pops out every now and then. It didn't change or disappear with the BB cream. But the product did provide a decent concealment for my blemishes. 

Whitening? This part requires long term observation. As far as I have experienced, the whitening effect of this product was the instant pearly sheen it did on my face. 

I am currently using this sample once a day and it has lasted for more than five days now. Overall, I like this product and I am all the more curious about its long term effects. I already asked the saleslady in a department store about it and its price is P695.00. Hmmm?

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
