Yay or Nay? Yay!
Got this as a gift. Being an oily girl living in a humid world, moisturizers aren’t my thing. But owning some for a while now has proven its use to me.
The Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX has a mild, relaxing scent yet it does not give me any allergic reaction. I have a history of skin asthma so I am happy that this product does not give me any redness/itchiness. Unlike lotion, it does not leave a heavy or slippery feel to the skin which I like. I am not a lotion user.
To test how moisturizing it is, I used some on my elbows and true enough, my elbows felt softer and moisturized.
One night, I had a mild finger burn once (clumsily burnt myself a little with boiling hot water for bathing), and I used it to soothe the pain. It was effective rather than dipping my fingers in cold water for a long time (not to mention the ugly trapping of water in the burnt area). It’s fast absorbing. I applied more whenever I felt like the pain was coming up again. The next morning, the pain was gone and it did not leave any mark/scar.
It’s an amazing product. Safe to use on break-out prone face, too, unlike the Clinique Moisture gel.
I’ve tried the Neogen Black Volume moisturizer as well, read here:
Yay or Nay? Yay!
Price: P160 (Watsons)
Okay, this is my facial saving grace.
My old routine wasn’t working for me anymore and I’ve been doing that routine since college. I guess 10 years later, hormones do kick in and decide to change.
I tried trying various products and they worked a bit but not as much as this Pond’s Acne Clear Anti Acne facial wash.
I was skeptic at first because the old Pond’s I’ve tried years back wasn’t doing my skin any justice. But this new product? I was very surprised. And amazed! Why? Let’s say I have this big, ugly hormonal chin zit and some mini pimples (pimplets lol). I used the mini sample sachet I got for free weeks before. After one wash, my mini pimples dried up and the big one became smaller. (I won’t post pic results because I wasn’t able to take pics and I’m a lazy blogger.)
I am using the toner from the same line and it’s okay. Not amazed but okay (better than Eskinol). I am also using the clearing gel from the same line and again, it’s just okay. It’s not a spot treatment; it’s more of a pimple-prevention gel+moisturizer.
For my quest against pimples, I tried Unilab Lactezin Pills as well. Read here: https://unpaidreview.com/2017/03/02/face-care-supplement-unilab-lactezin-pills/
If you’re familiar with #FrankenFood, then this is basically what this post is about. I love food and sometimes I like to experiment with them in weird simple ways. (If anyone of you can relate to this, just holla!)
Below are some of the food twists I did and actually liked/worked (for me, but if you don’t like then don’t do it lol). If you try any of these, don’t forget to holla back and lemme know your thoughts. 😉
- Nongshim Shin Ramyun chili instant ramen + Maple syrup
I like the ramen as it is but I just felt like it’s lacking something. I wanted to add a bit of a sweet factor into it and syrup came into mind to make it easier to dissolve/mix. I thought the deeper flavor of maple would harmonize with spices of the ramen and it did. (Korean + Canada fusion cuisine, anyone? LOL)
2. Stir-fry hotdogs
From where I’m from, this is normal. But usually, it’s done with oil, garlic, onions, soy sauce and ketchup then you add the sliced hot dogs (they should look like coins when you slice them up).
But my version, is the same except I substitute soy sauce with Thai sweet chili sauce. Oh, trust me on this one. Even my mom (who’s a huge critic btw) liked it.
3. Can’t think of anything else right now but will edit this post as soon as I remember or discover something.
So there you have it. If you do try it and think it’s a success, then we can call it a hack, maybe..? lol
If you have your own versions of taste discoveries as well, be sure to share it so we can enjoy the experience you had! 🙂
