After 2 years of restraining myself from online shopping, I'm at it again. So while I was trying Shopee, I decided to buy makeup brushes, a portable white box for photography and a huge bunch of lashes which I will be reviewing and making a post in the near future dates.
What: Unbranded Makeup Brushes from Shopee
Where to buy: Fancy Shop and tfscloinph.ph
Price: P554.00 (10pcs) and P192.00 (12pcs)
So how does Shopee work?
When you open the app, the first thing you would see are the Flash Deals, Shopee Live and Top Selling items. Upon check - out, you would need to pay shipping fees to each shop that you're ordering from then your package would arrive individually packed. Delivery period may be vary depending on which shop you're buying it from and the courier that would deliver it. The longest I've experienced is two weeks from a shop that ships from overseas.
Biore is a Japanese brand of skin care I personally love because it works great at a very affordable price. The product I'd be reviewing is Biore's Uru Uru 2 in 1 Cleanser. I've been using it for quite a while now so I thought its time to do a review.

The first time I discovered it was last April. During summer time, my face can be quite oily on my t-zone and since I'm commuting to work everyday, so expect the dirt to really stick.
What: The Therapy: Secret - Made Anti - Aging Eye Treatment
Where to Buy: The Face Shop
" This soft, moisture - rich cream provides 360 - degree intense care around the eyes and helps make skin smooth and bright."
I'm not getting any younger so skipping skin care is no longer an option. I do go to clinics for treatments but I don't follow a good skin care routine religiously. Having combination skin and a very oily T - zone, I would simply wash my face with Cetaphil followed by Eskinol Cleanser in the morning and I'm good to go. At night, I only add moisturizer in my morning routine.
A month ago, I decided to change that after observing dry patches in my face. I searched online and found Soko glam's 10 - Step Korean Skin Care Routine Set being sold for $199. Instead of buying that, I searched for product alternatives that would suit my skin and budget the most while following their directions as to which to apply first and what to look for in other products.
Here's the product combination I came up with:

Bobbie Nails have released the Bloom Collection for summer. It’s composed six nail polishes: Azalea, Carnation, Dahlia, Layla, Peony, and Petunia. As to finish, it’s a combination of a regular nail polish, two glitters, two holographic and one that seemed metallic from the bottle but is actually foil when you swatch it.

If you're up for some Korean food and good coversation with your friends I would suggest you to visit Dongane. It's located near the old Park n Shop.
What: Dongane Korean Restaurant
Where: SBMA near old Park n Shop
Price range: P250+ per head
After entering the first gate to SBMA, just walk straight ahead. You would want to turn left before the first Ministop (not the one on the other side of the street) and pass through the old Park n Shop to DBP's block. Turn to your left from there and you'll find it.
The thing I love about Bobbie Nail Creme is its variety of unique finishes. Their latest, Supah - GEL Collection, promises to "give your mani a voluminous, gel-lific finish" and "long - lasting gleam of a salon gel manicure sans UV light".

Where to buy: Watsons (Exclusive)
Price: P79.75 each
I've been busy reviewing recently for my exam so I hardly had time for other things. I recently got these but this isn't anything new since I've been seeing some of it in the shelf for awhile. I went ahead and bought it anyways since I don't have any substitute in most of the colors in the collection and I'd be using it for the nail art challenge I joined.
What: Chic Fangirl Collection
Where: Watsons and SM Department Store
Price: P35 each
Bobbie Nail Twinsies is a collection of nail polish duos sold for only P60 each. The first collection is composed of Rock & Roll, Cherry & Blossom, Aces & Spades and Yin & Yang.
One side of the bottle is a regular creme nail polish and the other end is packed with mostly round, stripes and hexagons with a few bits micro glitters in different colors. The middle holds the brush on each side.
I've been into nail polishes and nail art and I've constantly searched for products that would make it fun and easy. So when I found this OMG (Oh My Girl) Peel Off Base Coat, I immediately purchased one to try.
The thing that I don't like much about wearing nail polishes is removing it. specially the glitter ones. Too much acetone damages the nails and dries the cuticles. This is the very reason why I started swatching with nail wheels to test different collections.
Hopefully, with OMG Peel Off Base Coat clean up and swatching will be convenient and less damaging to the nails.
Still looking for ways to lighten and pamper my skin, I found these whitening products at Watson's. It's Hollywood Style Herbal Formulas Whitening Body Scrub, Peel off Mask and Whitening Lotion. No, I didn't read any review before trying this and I didn't buy it ll at once. I tried the body scrub first and since I was satisfied with the result, I purchased the other two whitening products available a few weeks later.
I used up the products first until there's almost nothing left before writing this article so the tubes in the photos were pretty much beaten up and empty.
