Review: HerSkin Secret Glow Tone Up Cream with SPF 30

Hello August, I am still alive and kicking! I know I've been MIA far too long. I procrastinate too much. Nowadays I've preferred a laid-back back life of just working at home. No make-up, just a layer of sunblock. I lived with just using my Pax Moly Doctor Whitening Cream but then I finished my stocks so I knew I needed a new brand. I became curious about Her Skin Secret Glow Tone Up Cream with SPF 30.

What is it? 
Her Skin Secret Glow Tone Up Cream with SPF 30 is a brightening cream for an everyday glow that makes every skin tone look healthier and more radiant with SPF 30 to protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays.

Packaging
It's in a cute baby blue plastic tube which is cute and portable. The expiration date is clearly printed on the back of the tube. It dispenses just the right amount of product every time which is great because a small amount of cream goes a long way.

Experience
I initially bought Her Skin Secret Glow Tone Up Cream with SPF 30 because I needed an alternative to my previous trustworthy tone up/ sunblock cream. I didn't have any expectations at all. My first impression is that it smells so nice with its mild floral scent. HerSkin Tone Up cream itself feels like silk on the skin. It is not watery by any chance but it is absorbed quickly when applied. It makes my pores less visible, adds up the glow, and evens out my skin tone. The cream is very lightweight like you did not put any cream at all.

How much and where to buy?
Retails for P200 for a 50g tube.

What I love
  • Gives a subtle healthy glow
  • Evens skin tone
  • Comes with SPF 30
  • Tube dispenses just the right amount of cream
  • A little cream goes a long way
  • Makes my pores less visible
  • Affordable
  • Locally made

What I don't
  • Nothing I can mention

TIPS 
You can use this underneath makeup as a primer. It helps makeup glide on smoother!

Will I repurchase? 
YES!

Overall~ 
Need I say more? I am satisfied with Her Skin Secret Glow Tone Up Cream with SPF 30 and I see myself using it more. If you are mostly at home nowadays this is a gem! I love how this feels like nothing yet you'll still look naturally glowing. If you are going out then you can use this as a primer or extra protection from the sun. It's very affordable and it works! 

Are you also using Tone up creams or sunblock? Would you be trying this cream?

Back to reading: APOP Books Loot!

Reading is one of my long lost hobby. Ever since I've started working I lost all the time and enthusiasm I had for reading. While scrolling through my Facebook feed I've seen one of my friends showing her book from APOP.

I've checked our their page and the quotes from their books quickly captured my attention.

I want something fun yet inspiring at the same. Something that can spark my love for reading once again. And so, fast forward to now I got all of APOP books (back in June). 


I was able to finish Origin 1cm then slowly reading Being comfortable without effort. I can totally relate with the author's experience in life. I dedided to live as me seems to be anothrr good book for self-reflection. Then the other 2 books Love is... are like photo books I've seen related to the korean drama W 2 Worlds.

Anyhow, I am just happy to be able to finish read books again. How about you, what is your current hobby?

Review: Merry Sun Shining Colored Cellowax in Pink

Have you ever heard the saying if you can't change your surroundings, change your hair color? I am feeling a bit gloomy so to change my state of mind right now I've decided to recolor my hair. I don't want to spend a fortune on changing it though, and I don't want to use harsh chemicals. I have searched for something easy to use and also temporary because I can't decide on a  fixed color. I've found Merry Sun Shining Colored Cellowax and saw positive feedbacks on it so I bought various colors!

What is it? 
Merry Sun Shining Colored Cellowax is a hair coloring product that gives your hair  fantastic shine and adds a layer of color. It's an easy to use hair coloring product that can be used right at the comfort of your home. Just follow the instruction and you can treat your hair without fuss. It would only take a few minutes to change the color of your hair. 

I got Merry Sun Shining Colored  Cellowax in black, pink, blue, violet, light blonde, natural, fiery orange, black, blue, and believe it or not, they even have rose gold!

Packaging
It's in sachets, quite a pain to keep if you are only using half of it. 

Experience
I have used it on dry hair. At first I've mixed the pink Cellowax and conditioner together before applying it on my hair. I've only used 2 sachets in order to get the correct shade on my hair. I've noticed it didn't have any bleeding on water or towels afterwards which is a huge plus. I usually stain even the tiles when I was using the Chroma Cellowax which is another temporary diy hair color brand.

To be honest, I like the faded color better because it looks like rosegold. But the bubble gum pink shade is also lovely. 


(this is how the product looks like except the round sticker says pink. I've already thrown the sachet I've used as of writing this entry)





How much and where to buy?
I got this for only 45 per 60ml sachet.

What I love
  • Color is temporary
  • Didn't stain my towels
  • Doesn't fade fast
  • Affordable
  • Smells like bubble gum!
  • Made my hair soft
  • Has many colors to choose from
What I don't
  • Full color won't shot on black hair. 
TIPS 
You can dilute the color with conditioner if you want to achieve a pastel shade.

Will I repurchase? 
YES!

Overall~ 
Merry Sun Shining Colored Cellowax is a very convenient way to color your hair without any commitment on any shade!

Games I play this Quarantine Period

With the existence of COVID 19's Delta variant, strict restrictions was implemented once again. I thought of doing something fun for a change so while on a month of quarantine I've decided to play some games. During this time I also signed up with Steam and tried getting used to using Discord. We use Discord to talk while playing, I'm amazed how there is no lag or stutter. Anyway, I'm sharing it here so in case you like any of the games, we can go and play together!



You've inherited your grandfather's old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life!

The game is pixelated and brings back old game visuals. I remember the Pokemon game in Nintendo. There is much more to the game than farming. It has this calming, laid-back feeling which calms me while I play. You can also make a coop farm with a friend so you can nurture your farm together. Our farm's name is My Applepeach which is our favorite fruit. I've chose to play this on Steam (or via computer) because the Android version won't allow multi-players.


Join your friends in a brand new 5v5 MOBA showdown against real human opponents, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang! Choose your favorite heroes and build the perfect team with your comrades-in-arms! 10-second matchmaking, 10-minute battles. Laning, jungling, tower rushing, team battles, all the fun of PC MOBAs and action games in the palm of your hand! Feed your eSports spirit!

A MOBA game which is This game is kinda stressful sometimes if your co-players keep on trash talking. I am slowly learning the other  hero roles here. I am mostly playing as a mage, support or tank. Right now I am slowly learning how to play as a fighter. I think everyone in the Philippine has installed  this game at one point.


Cooking Battle is a fast-paced multiplayer cooking game! Play with friends! Choose different stylish chefs to compete in kitchen.

This is a really fun casual game. I thought it will be a highly upgraded Diner Dash, but no. I like the whole gameplay. It is so enjoyable. You will be heated up on how fast the time ticks and you are still not done in chopping and cooking. The excitement comes from the need to play with someone and you are both allowed to choose your own chefs with different cooking abilities!

---------------------------

So that sums up my top 3 games for this quarantine period. Hope one or two sparked an interest with you, comment down below or send me a message in my Facebook page if you like to play with me!
