[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.

[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

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
