[Review] Jean George Llong Sun Block for Women

Playing the Yutnori game in the Too Cool for School booth last BDJ Box Beauty Social got me three skin care samples as a prize. One of the things that I got is a sachet of Jean George Llong Sun Block for Women. 


My sachet is of Jean George Llong Sun Block
This is the first product that I have tried from Too Cool for School. So I researched about this and I am satisfied with the description:

Hmmm.. So, it is a sun block but doubles as a makeup base or primer. Cool! It is kinda like BB or CC Cream in that sense. But it is labeled as sun block so let's stick to that. Ooh... the packaging of the full bottle is very lovely too! Heehee~ (^_^) 

Here is the sample that I got from the event. It is a small sachet but it lasted for two weeks with once a day usage. See, I only road test one product at a time up until I use up the whole sample. It is in this way that I can fully observe the effects and results on my skin. 


The description at the back is in Korean.
This product has a good powder-like smell. It has that creamy consistency, too. Upon application, it glides well and gets absorbed by the skin easily. However, it looked too unnaturally white on me at first. But don't worry, after about 5 minutes, it adapted to my skin color. See, it didn't feel like sun block at all. It gave me that BB cream feel. 

Here are a few swatches:

It disappeared, leaving a healthy whitish glow on my skin. :) 
My skin adapted well to this product. They didn't declare sebum control on the packaging but I have observed that my face didn't get oily for up to four hours the most. Good news, right? Breakouts didn't occur and my face looks more plump. So the anti-wrinkle claim works, then. 

Lastly, unlike BB or CC Creams, this one doesn't give a dewy-shiny look on my skin. And I like it like that, just plain matte and naturally white. Having a huge amount of sunblock, claimed at SPF 50, I am not scared to be exposed to the sun at all! 

I haven't visited a Too Cool for School store yet so I don't know the price of the full bottle. But online, it costs about $12 - $15. With an impressive product like this, it made me all the while curious to try out the other two samples I got from the Yutnori game. Or better yet, I guess it's time for me to pay them a visit in SM North EDSA.

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

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
