A Gift from Shiseido and Sample Room

I joined the Sample Room Shiseido Ibuki blog contest with hopes to win! But God heard my prayer in a different way... 




Yay! I didn't expect to win on Instagram! I am not even active in there. Actually, I just saw the photo that I won three days later from the post date. It was the most wonderful surprise for me, especially now that my birthday is coming in about a month. 

Then I had a quick flashback when I visited the Shiseido Oxygen Lounge in TriNoma. The booth was made up of transparent glass walls and you could see different Shiseido products from makeup, skin care, and the latest Ibuki line. Below is the winning Instagram photo:



Christine was the Shiseido lady who gave me an introduction about the new product. She also gave me a short facial to experience the Ibuki line. Actually, it wasn't my first time to try out this product as I got samples from Sample Room days before. But I love the facial! Christine was so good at massaging and the whole experience was very relaxing! It was quick as well, lasting for only twenty minutes. Shiseido Ibuki does live up to it's claim that it is for millenials! See, even the facial was fast. 

Then weeks later, I won the contest! Yay! I thought I would only get one product. So I decided to wonder what it would be. Everything in the Shiseido Ibuki line is promising. My favorite is the Refining Moisturizer and it would be great to own it. However, I still don't have an eye care regimen so the Eye Correcting Cream would work just fine. 

But I really don't mind what it was! The feeling of excitement, or being surprised was coursing through my veins. And last Saturday (Oct. 19), I lost my breath for a moment when I saw the package lying on my bed. 

It came like a gift, wrapped in a Shiseido paper bag with a heartwarming message. Awww... (^_^)


The package! Wow! 

.. with the Sample Room Sticker! Cute!

I really appreciate this. Thanks, SR Team! :)
It was sealed well. I had to remove the adhesives first but in every second, my heartbeat went faster. The thrill of knowing what's inside made me eager to open it the soonest! 


The pink paper inside completed the gift look! 
And now...
I got Refining Moisturizer AND the Eye Correcting Cream
Tadaah! My eyes got teary when I found out that I got BOTH of my heart's desire! Thank you to Shiseido and the Sample Room team for this wonderful and early birthday gift! 


The gift! :) 

I realized that the old saying is true, then: all you want in this life comes true, they just come in different packaging. (^_^) I'm so happy, very very happy!

[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
