Lovely Samples from THEFACESHOP

The only instance when the word 'samples' bring me happiness is when they come in the form of little sachets or bottles with colorful graphics. The contents inside should be soap, facial wash, toner, cream, moisturizer, or what-not.  

See, in my line of craft, 'sample' means 'deadlines', and of course along with it comes stress. Hehehe... It feels so conflicting whenever I encounter the word 'sample'. To me, it either means stress or happiness.

This time, it means happiness.

There is no getting over THEFACESHOP at Wisma Atria! I went for a visit there with boyfie, and to my surprise, they were celebrating their 8th anniversary and they had activities to boot! They gave us a drink which was suppose to rejuvenate your skin, something which was made from aloe vera and wheat grass (not sure though, I forgot). It was sweet and refreshing at the same time. But the best part is, they gave away a sample set! Yay! 

The boutique looked great with posters of Kim Soo Hyun hanging on almost every wall. The products were lined up in perfect order as well. Some had cute packaging, while others had the formal look. 

Oops, since we were in a hurry, I wasn't able to take photos of the lovely place and the friendly ladies who greeted us. I do have pictures of the samples though!


My lovely samples from THEFACESHOP!

I'm most excited to try the Aura CC Cream! This is my first ever sample of CC cream. I'm very curious of this innovation and how it compares with BB Cream.

Next is the cutest sachet from the bunch: The Chia Seed Moisture-Holding Cream. This claims to have Chia seeds extract which does the job of moisturization.

Sleeping packs are a regular in my regimen. But a sleeping mask? Are they even the same? Let's find out, shall we? THEFACESHOP gave away this sachet of Baby Face Sleeping Mask Aqua Drop Pack.

Sun block should never be skipped in your skin care routine. I'm so glad that this SPF 45 sun cream is included in the sample kit! 


Natural Sun Eco Power Long-Lasting Sun Cream SPF 45 PA+++

Lastly, we have the cleansing foam. This is part of the whitening variant which has rice water as one of the ingredients. 


Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam

Going through the whole post, I have deduced that I was actually given a complete skin care regimen: wash face with Rice Water Cleansing Foam, pat dry, then apply Chia Seed Moisturizer; nest is the sun cream, and lastly, the CC cream. Now that is awesome! Wheee~ Unfortunately, I haven't seen these products in the local THEFACESHOP stores here in Manila. I will definitely go and check their availability once I have taken a liking to any of them. If not, I'll have boyfie get them for me. :P 

Happiness!

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[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!

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
