[Review] Yves Rocher Pure System Stop Blemish Lotion

The second product from the October BDJ Box that I will review is a moisturizer from Yves Rocher. It is from the Pure System range and is aptly called Stop Blemish Lotion 4 in 1. This is also the first time that I used a product from Yves Rocher. With that, I was very curious as to how it would react to my skin. 

Here is the official statement as written in the BDJ Box card:

*YVES ROCHER PURE SYSTEM STOP BLEMISH LOTION, 4 IN 1, 15ML
Helps skin against blemish and residual marks with organic Aloe-Vera and anti-bacterial Salicylic Acid.


Yves Rocher Stop Blemish Lotion 15mL Sample from the October BDJ Box.

I assumed that this product is a facial moisturizer, even though it is officially termed as 'lotion' as per label. The content is a viscous light greenish-white cream. Everytime I use it, I smell the strong scent of fresh leaves that hints of aloe vera. No wonder, upon looking at the ingredients list, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice is fourth. This means that there is a significant chunk of aloe vera juice in the product. 

In cosmetic formulations, the ingredients are listed in decreasing volume. So, whenever you read an ingredient list in any personal care product, the first one you see from the top left is the dominant one. For this Stop Blemish Lotion, the most abundant ingredient is water. It is then followed by Glycerin, Alcohol, and finally Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice.

I decided to use this out of the blue. What perfect timing too! I watched the Korean drama Faith last week. Having been addicted to the story, I didn't have enough sleep and my skin was in the perfect condition for breakouts! 

Knowing my skin, a big zit would come up overnight from lack of sleep. However, thanks to this product, no major blemish came up. There were small zits popping up but it got dried it just a few hours from applying the product. My blackheads have diminished too. However, It didn't have any effect at all with my whiteheads.  I guess that is tougher to beat. But over all, I can say that this product is effective in its claim of stopping blemishes. 


As for the cons, this product did not offer me sebum control. Just a few hours after application, my face would start to get oily and I need to blot it out. Though it is that way, no new pimples or blemishes appeared. 

Overall, I was satisfied at how effective the product was. There were no lingering negative after effects with my skin after I applied it. It is a good product to use if you have acne prone skin like me. To find out more, you can visit the Yves Rocher boutique in SM North The Block.

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

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi
