Review: Pax Moly Real Aloe Vera Face Mask Pack

Did you know? The best way to moisturize your skin before makeup is to use a hydrating face mask. I watched in one of Daddoa's makeup tutorials that she used a face mask right before applying makeup. It actually makes sense! Have you ever experienced that no matter how much moisturizer and primer you slather on you still end up with a cakey foundation finish? The solution is face sheet masks. There are different kind of sheet masks but basically there is more to it than giving glow and hydration. The recent one I've used is Pax Moly Real Aloe Vera Face Mask Pack.

What is it?

Pax Moly Real Aloe Vera Mask Pack 
[Dual functional cosmetic for whitening and anti-aging]
Formulated with aloe vera extracts, it provides skin hydration and nourishing
Featured ingredients: Niacinamide, Adenosine

Foil type pouch is easy to open and the design is simple and straight-forward.

Pax Moly Real Aloe Vera Face Mask Pack offers a very mild aloe vera scent. Its not over powering so if you are not a fan of aloe vera you might still like this one. This face mask also contains just the right amount of serum in it which I like because it means the mask is not dripping wet. I like how mess-free it is. Pax Moly Real Aloe Vera Face Mask Pack fits my face perfectly.

Its not too big unlike the previous masks I've tried before. I am a bit skeptical at first on using a new face sheet mask because I tried a mask before that stings like crazy! That is why I am glad that this is very gentle on my skin. The serum is light and gives a cold relaxing feeling and its easily absorbed by the skin.

I was amazed with how supple and bright my skin looks after use. My skin is plump, hydrated and smooth.

How much and where to buy?
P25/each. Just P100 for 4 pieces at or Oh-some MNL

What I love
  • Mild aloe vera scent
  • Sheet masks fits perfectly
  • Doesn't sting
  • Doesn't clog pores
  • Hydrated skin
  • Fits my face perfectly
  • Light serum is easily absorbed by the skin
  • Mask doesn't drip with serum=no mess
  • Smooth skin for good makeup base
  • Great pamper time mask
  • Reduced the size of my pimples with just one use
  • Affordable compared to other masks in the market
What I don't
  • Nothing I can mention
Will I repurchase?
Yes! Its very affordable compared to other face mask. There are also new variants like honey and aqua in addition to aloe vera and vitamin C.

I would honestly love to put on mask everyday if I can. Gone are the days that the only ones available in the market are P80-100 face sheet masks. I recommend to use a pack of Pax Moly Aloe Vera mask everytime you have break outs from your period, works like magic. Cheaper doesn't always mean low quality, Pax Moly Real Aloe Vera Mask Pack proved its worth every penny.

Review: Prestige Chocolate Keratin Daily Conditioner

After using several so-called keratin treatment products in the market I honestly lost my hope in looking for a hair product that can work on my really dry hair. I am looking for a cheaper alternative for my Mondes favorite for some reason and I found Prestige Chocolate Keratin Daily Conditioner.

What is it? 
Prestige Chocolate Keratin Daily Conditioner says:
FOR heavenly damage, stressed, colored permed hair Chocolate keratin daily conditioner is formulated for nourishing and strengthening every strand of the hair as it restores and repairs damage and stress hair due to several factors like chemical and environmental factors. It has delight full chocolate aroma that keeps your hair smells fresh all day. Moreover, keratin provides protein to the hair that makes you hair healthy and shiny. Active Ingredients: - Pro vitamin B5 -Dimethicone -Keratin -Amino acid
The packaging is similar to a bulb. Its made of plastic and of course the product says chocolate so obviously they made the color brown.

Prestige Chocolate Keratin Daily Conditioner like the name suggests smells like chocolate! You may love or hate it. At first I don't like it because I don't get the idea of having a chocolate smelling hair however I got used to it. The conditioner compared to other brands I have tried the formula is runny and its color white, I was actually expecting for it to be brown because it says chocolate. I apply the conditioner from roots to tips and I wait for 5 minutes or so. The instructions actually say 30 minutes but the label says daily . that is a bit contradicting because who in the world now have the luxury of 30 minutes everyday? Anyway so I rinse it off after 5 minutes. Behold because I can run my fingers to my hair without tangles. There is also an added shine to it. It made my hair manageable and yes smells chocolate.

How much and where to buy?
P350 for 500g. Available at Shopee and Lazada

What I love

  • Made my hair manageable
  • No more fizz
  • Hair smells like chocolate
  • Added shine
  • Hair is softer
  • Affordable

What I don't

  • Not accessibly available


Will I repurchase? 
Yes. I like this product actually.

Prestige Chocolate Keratin Daily Conditioner is a decent everyday hair buddy. I love how it makes my hair soft, manageable and fragrant. It also doesn't hurt my wallet so that is another plus I am expecting for this to last one month or more with everyday use, awesome! If you like sweet smelling hair and a keratin treatment product that won't break the bank then grab Prestige Chocolate Keratin Daily Conditioner now.

Review: Snow Skin Whitening Lotion

Last week I went in a company outing with my boyfriend in Masasa Batangas. Last days of relaxation before the real battle with my training at work begin! Anyway since we went swimming I was left with bad tan lines on my legs. I was wearing rashguard so my upper body is alright but my face is also darker now. Luckily Snow has sent me their products last month which includes Snow Skin Whitening Lotion. Will this help me with my uneven skin tone? I haven't used any whitening lotion for a while now so I am excited to try this out.

What is it?
Snow Skin Whitening Lotion says...
Brighten your everyday mood as you caress your beautiful skin all over. Snow Whitening Lotion gives you Elite 7 Skin Whitening Actives for skin whitening as well as skin protection and cell repair. Snow Whitening Lotion keeps up with its promise of non-carcinogenic and ultimately safe yet most beneficial ingredients to give you that beautiful feeling inside and out.

The box is well thought out, its a bit different compared to the usual way of opening boxes because it opens from the side. The bottle is cylinder shaped and its made of durable type of plastic. However the weight of the product might not be fit for the bottle because it gets easily knocked off. The plastic cover of the lotion broke due to this reason. *sad*

The first thing I want to highlight is the scent of Snow Skin Whitening Lotion. It has a mild luxurious floral scent which uplifts my mood everytime I use it. It lingers on my skin. Unlike other brands, Snow Skin Whitening lotion has a thick consistency and might be a bit heavy for summer however its still very easy to apply. The lotion gets absorbed easily and I think it can be a great lotion for the rainy cold season because it hydrates the skin well. My skin feels softer and there is an instant lightening effect.

I am yet to start using Snow Skin Whitening Lotion religiously but I want to see if this will work now that I badly needed to even out my skin tone. I will update this post with the before and after results, crosses fingers!

How much and where to buy?
P799 for 175ml. You may get it from Watsons nationwide or Lazada online.

What I love

  • Immediate whiter skin with one use
  • Well hydrated skin
  • Luxurious Mild floral scent
  • Made my skin softer
  • Radiant bright skin

What I don't

  • Sticky for summer
  • Steep price might be a con if you are a girl on a budget (like me!) But it the product is of quality, there is no reason not to splurge sometimes!

Will I repurchase?
If this works on my tan lines!

Snow Skin Whitening Lotion offers unconventional whitening ingredients which can be a good reason for you to try it out as well. I really like the mild floral scent on my skin and the softness. I am yet to comment on the whitening effect so make sure to bookmark this post.

See you in my next post! *wink*

Review: Red Lips Goat Milk Moist Up Foam Cleansing

Have you ever heard how good milk is for our skin? During the old times women are known to bathe in milk in order to hydrate their skin. Milk and honey bath is in fact, one of Cleopatra's best kept beauty secrets (its not a secret now though, lucky us!) The lactic acid content of milk is said to lessen pigmentation, and it can heal not just dryness but also acne on our skin. I actually remember myself using honey and milk face mask before. Having known these benefits I thought of giving  Red Lips Goat Milk Moist Up foam Cleansing a try because it contains Goat's milk goodness.

What is it? 


✓Rich in essential fatty acid, lactic acid, AHA, Vitamin A and Selenium 
✓Skin Lightening 
✓Gently slough off dead skin cells 
✓Hydrates skin 

Net wt: (180ml)

❤HOW TO USE: Spoon a generous amount on hand then mix it with ambient water. Gently massage in a circular motion on face with foam and rinse thoroughly.

They also have it in honey version: Red Lips Honey Moist Up foam Cleansing. I think the honey version is best partnered with the Pax Moly Honey Radiant Glow Cream.

Red Lips Goat Milk Foam comes in a plastic tube flip open cap. It has a protective foil too to guarantee product freshness. It only comes in one big size, so I know this will last a long time because it dispenses pea size amount of product which makes it economical. I have been using mine for 2 months already and its still not empty!

The label is very cute and not boring! Its very korean for me and I feel like they've thought about it well. Sometimes I have feelings that a product won't be very effective if the label is cute because it seems like it was made for kids or its supposed to be very mild. However I do not generalize products so I still gave this one a try. 

To say things truthfully I have tried a lot of face foams already. I was really wondering how Red Lips Goat Milk Moist Up foam Cleansing can be any different? First of all it really smells like milk and I like it because its mildly scented. When I massaged it on my face it formed creamy lather which is perfect because I let it sit on my skin for a while for maximum benefits. I use Goats Milk foam both on my face and back. I noticed that the pimples on my back is slowly drying up.

I cannot attest on the hydrating claim though because it is a bit drying on me. I don't use face scrub as much now ever since I started using Red Lips Goat Milk and my face seems also lighter now and there is glow every after wash.

How much and where to buy?
P240 at Pax Moly Distributors nationwide or from Oh-some MNL

What I love
  • Slowly dried my pimples (especially the ones on my back)
  • Thoroughly cleanses skin *No need for extra micellar if you feel lazy like me*
  • Doubles as makeup remover (it can remove my eye liner!)
  • Brightens up my skin tone
  • Glowing effect after wash
  • Tube dispenses the right amount each and every time
  • Mildly scented milk foam
  • Lathers soft creamy foam
  • Value for money
  • Did not break me out
  • Safe and effective
What I don't
  • Drying I need to put on my favorite moisturizer of the day *right now I use Pax Moly snail gel*
My current routine as of now:
Red Lips Goat Milk Moist Up Foam Cleansing
Pax Moly Snail Mucus Gel
Pax Moly Doctor Whitening Cream

Red Lips Goat Milk Moist Up Foam Cleansing
Pax Moly Snail Mucus Gel

Will I repurchase? 
I want to try Red Lips Honey Moist Up Foam Cleansing next!

So far after trying a lot of face foams, I can say Red Lips Goat Milk Moist Up foam Cleansing is for keeps. I read even preggy mommies are also using this however better ask your OB because we all have different sensitivity to products. I like how economical this product is because given the price, the size is just so big and will last a long time. I recommend this if you are a bit on a hurry every night on cleansing your face, this does save you a step because it cleans and gets rid of makeup all at the same time.

Red Lips Goat Milk Moist Up Foam Cleansing
With favorite face foam now!

Hope you can try Red Lips Goat Milk Moist Up Foam Cleansing because its all natural. 

What is your current face wash? 
Do you prefer face wash or face foams?

Back to Black with Mondes Dark Brown!

So this is not supposed to happen or is it? I thought of sharing a story with you guys.

Last night I came home with a paper bag filled with hair supplies. It was actually weird because I really don't have any idea what to buy but I still dropped by to check. The attendant in Hortaleza asked why I should recolor when I just dropped by two weeks ago? (Ate, that was 2 months ago already!! Hehe but glad you remember me)

Maintaining blonde hair is quite a feat for the scalp and budget. Its hard to keep the color even. I thought of getting dark ash blonde, ash gray etc but they are all out of stock! I want a slightly dark shade this time so I can spare myself from the high maintenance color of blonde. I ended up getting dark brown, did I make the right choice?

My purchase:
Mondes in Dark brown

Oxidizing Lotion at 9%
Shine Moist Henna Wax Color Treatment
Swallow 1 Minute Hair Smoothing Cream

I asked my sister to help me with the process. She only used one oxidizing lotion and one box of color. I waited for 30 minutes and rinsed. Make sure to buy hair spa or henna wax like what I did! This is a must, believe me. 

I now conclude that 'dark brown' would not really result to anything close to brown. This is a sure ball to go black, lol. I like the outcome, when you are blonde and you're going dark, one box usually is enough. Going light on the other hand requires more color. I feel more like a normal person now although I am not so sure if that is on a positive or a negative note.

Anyways enjoy the weekend!

Review: Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor

"Lipstick can't solve all problems, but its a pretty great start"

Yes indeed! This is the reason why a girl can't have too many lipsticks, can she? It doesn't how bad the day was, a good lipstick can definitely save a part of the day. A few weeks back I've received a set of goodies courtesy of Silky Girl Philippines. A sneak peak was shown earlier here. Does Silky and matte go well together? Let us find out with our review of Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor!

What is it? 
Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor
This matte Lipcolor is formulated with Shea Butter, Safflower oil and Papaya extract to moisturize, nourish and smoothen lips. With its long-lasting light texture, you can now go about your day comfortably, and confidently. 

Go Matte Lipcolor is available in six shades and 4 bold, new shades – 07 Daring Pink, 09 Loud Fuchsia, 08 Foxy Red and 10 Spicy Marsala

Glides easily
No Fragrance
No carmine and free from animal testing.
Net wt: 4g

I really like the transparent middle of Silky Girl's lipstick tube. I can immediately see the shade of the lipstick without looking at the bottom. The bottom of the lipstick tube actually bears the shade number and shade name. I think the names are well thought of.

Due to my careless I lost the cap of Shade 10 Spicy Marsala and it even was my favorite color from the bunch. :(

There are 10 shades in total and they sent me their newest shades! Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor is my very first lip product from Silky Girl. I remember doing swatches on my hands when I was at their Landmark kiosk a few months back.

Silky Girl Go Matte is a non-drying lipstick and I can sing praises for its consistency. For me its like putting on butter because it glides on easily unless you have severe chapped lips. For that, you can always wear lip balm underneath so it will not be a problem. I tested this applied on dabbing motion (to make it look like tint) and if applied heavily. When dabbed, the product only lasts for one hour (or less!) because I have a bad habit of biting my lips. However when I heavily applied it on it lasted 3 hours! I do not mind reapplication because its like adding moisture to my lips once again, thank you shea butter, safflower oil and papaya extract! 

All shades leave some sheen which makes my lips look hydrated! You see, its not so matte as the name suggest but I can blot off the sheen to make it matte! 2-in-1 product teehee. In case you are wondering yes I do use it on my cheeks as well. I am fond of using lip products on cheeks to make it match.

Kudos also for not adding carmine and not testing this lipstick on animals, thank you! thank you!

First time to do swatch fest (yes I know its messy huhu..)

Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor in Daring Pink

07 Daring Pink - Reddish pink
For me is not as daring pink as it says. This shade has more red in it than pink. The shade instantly brightens up my complexion! Its sort of hot pink with a mix of red. Its just the right kind of bright color which can make you feel young.

Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor in Foxy Red

08 Foxy Red - Warm orange red
This red is a mix of orange and red. Its like a warm orange which can be mistaken for nude but I like it. This is a great everyday color in replacement to red or the usual nude shades. Orange depicts youthfulness and freshness! I am not sure if I am making sense here but try it. This shade will definitely lift up your spirits.

This particular shade however, has the tendency to make me look orange because I have warm undertone so I won't use this during summer. The shade would also looks good both on fair and morena skin.

Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor in Loud fuschia

09 Loud Fuchsia - Cool blue based pink
Its a cool bright pink which can make you look younger. Wearing this makes me look young with positive vibes. Its such an awesome bold color. Fret not, this color is very wearable. During the days wherein you want to have the Barbie doll look this will be your best bet! If you are not a fan of heavily applied lipstick then try my tinted way of application by dabbing it on your lips.

Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor in Spicy Masala

10 Spicy Masala - Brick Red shade
I like how it makes the person stand out with its unique color. Its brick red shade which leans more on brown is perfect for days when you want something different from your everyday pink or nude. This is actually my favorite shade out of all four.

See how all colors pop? They are so lively, the color payoff is amazing! The shades are pretty and lasted pretty long. This is not your typical matte lipsticks because its lightweight, layering is fine and there won't heavy feeling on your lips. There also won't be any uncomfortable feeling, bleeding or dryness at all.

How much and where to buy?
Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor is sold at Silky Girl kiosks for P279.

What I love
  • Buttery consistency
  • Light-weight lipsticks with non-sticky consistency that doesn't dry lips
  • Rich color pay-off, get opaque color with one swipe
  • Silky matte finish
  • Healthy lips because it has a slight sheen 
  • Smooth and velvety finish
  • Sophisticated new colors
  • All day wear with minimal eating and drinking
  • Fragrance free
  • Highly pigmented and one swipe gets you an opaque color
  • Affordable
  • Accessible products at Silky Girl kiosks
  • Unscented and Carmine free (safe for sensitive skinned gals, yey!)
  • Not tested with animals
What I don't

  • Nothing I can mention

  • To use Silky Girl Go Matte as tint, dab it on instead of swiping it on. 
  • To make the color last longer remove the moisture on the lips by using tissue then apply baby powder to slightly mattify and seal the lipstick on
Will I repurchase? 
I would love to get my fave shade once I finish it. Its such a rare color!

Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor exceeded my expectations and I love the variety of shades! I am glad they released this line in the Philippines. I find myself reaching for Silky Girl Matte tubes nowadays because its non-drying formula which is perfect for the cold weather. I recommend this to girls who likes healthy yet matte lips. You will definitely love the creamy consistency and opaque color, one swipe and you are good to go!

Indeed wearing Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor might not solve all problems but it surely brightened up my day!
