[Review] Eternity Acqua by Calvin Klein

This is the first time that I would be reviewing a fragrance. Here is Eternity Acqua by Calvin Klein. I got this from the October BDJ Box and it came in a sample size of 1.2 mL. As this only came in a sample size, I can't give you my point of view with regards to its packaging. All I can share with you is its scent.  As I write this, I realize how hard it is to review this sample. How do I describe the smell and interpret it in words?

Here is the official statement from the October BDJ Box:

Crafted for the stylish and sophisticated woman, this modern scent is inspired by the ocean breeze.

The 1.2 mL sample bottle. 
True to its claim, the scent really reminds me of the fresh cool sea breeze: little saltiness, leafy smell, and gentleness of water. The soft floral notes only becomes apparent when you smell it longer. The smell is gentle and not strong. It gives you a bit of sophistication. This fragrance is feminine and is ideal for the busy woman in the corporate world. 

I didn't get any spontaneous compliments when I wore this scent. However, when I asked head on about it, my colleagues told me that it smells great. It doesn't last for long so you need to reapply it. This is a Eau de Toilette after all. Being alcohol-based, the scent lasts for two to three hours on me. 

Even if this product is good, I won't buy a full bottle of  it. I am a fan of full and sweet floral scents and Eternity Acqua just falls short. Though I won't mind wearing this in formal parties and meetings. But if soft and sophisticated fragrances are your type, then give this one a try.

[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!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
