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!

[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
