I have an event on Dec 1 and I decided to wear false eyelashes. The first time I used false eyelashes was for a wedding and I did not put it on myself. I knew I needed to practice so I browsed online and found out that Red Cherry lashes are quite good and not very expensive. It costs 160 pesos each pair in Digital Traincase. I was set to order from there but Duo lash glue was out of stock so I browsed online for a lashglue and stumbled upon BeautyMNL’s site. I’ve been to the site before because they’re the sister company of Deal Grocer, which I frequent a lot. Lo and behold, I also found Red Cherry lashes there! I was able to find a lash glue too and they offered free shipping so I ended up ordering from them and not DTC. Heh. (I still love Ms. Sol and DTC though.)

I ordered a total of 4 lashes and 1 lash glue. My total was 940 pesos. I learned that Deal Grocer Platinum and Elite members get to enjoy free shipping! Uhm, yes, I am a platinum member ._.

I ordered it end of day  Friday, Nov 21 and the order arrived on Monday, Nov 24. Their service is super fast. I am very impressed!

All beauty lovers will love this site.  They have makeup, skincare, and haircare items. You can shop for high end brands like Dior, Nars, MAC, Bobbi Brown, etc. but they also have drugstore brands like Revlon, Neutrogena, Max Factor and the like. They also have Tarte, Korres, Buxom, which are brands are that are not yet available locally. After your first purchase, you’ll get 10%   rebate on your succeeding purchases. That’s some nice perk, don’t you think? I think this is a nice way to finish some of your Christmas shopping to avoid traffic (human and cars alike) as well as long lines in stores. They also deliver nationwide so this is a plus for people outside Manila to enjoy products that aren’t usually available locally.

Hope this post helps you with your shopping list! 3 days to go and it’s December, oh yeah! 🙂

Origins Clear Improvement Mask

2014-11-26 00.57.18

Yes it’s the time of the month. You want to cry for no reason at all. You crave for sweets and salty food like there’s no tomorrow.  It’s also the time when your skin feels most vulnerable. Breakouts here and there, on your forhead, chin, on your nose. It’s not a pretty sight, right? I was already not feeling well  because of my colds when my monthly visitor sneaked right in. Double ugh. I hate dysmenorrhea.

So after my lovely anniversary date with Chard, I decided to treat myself a mini pampering session. I knew my skin needed some TLC so after a hot shower, I got my Origins Clear Improvement Mask and slathered it on my face. On initial application, you’ll feel that it tingles and warms up a bit. I leave it on for a good 20 minutes until it sort of hardens on the skin. To remove, I splash my face with warm water and use a face towel to make sure my face is clean and sans all the residue.

This is how it looks like when spread out on the skin.

How it looks like when dry

This mask is actually a good way to clear your skin of toxins because activated charcoal is its main ingredient. It draws out impurities from your skin and leaves your skin feeling cleaner and smoother. That’s what my skin feels like every single time I use this. It looks brighter as well, definitely looking much healthier.

I give high priority to skincare so I don’t mind shelling out a little more for it. I don’t think Origins is available locally. I usually buy Origins in duty free shops whenever I travel or I ask relatives/friends get it for me in the US.  This is quite pricey at 25 US dollars per 100ml but I think it’s worth it. I only have the 50 ml version since I got it from a set.  There’s an Origins Mask set that’s gonna be on sale for Black Friday (link from Temptalia) in Sephora so grab it if you can.
