Life Updates: White Skin, New Hair Color & Fave Streamers

Hi guys it's the end of the week right here. I am still amazed on how time flies so fast and it's nearing October! Just thought of giving a bit of an update with this post.

New hair color!
I finally got tired of my blonde turned pink locks and I dyed it purple! In case you see entries or blonde hair vlogs then it is definitely something from my backlog haha.

Did a splurge shopping!
I normally just go with what is cheap and affordable but last weekend I cannot help but buy this set of top and shorts. It isn't like I don't have something similar but it just caught my eye somehow. Goodbye to my hard earned cash, this was from Surplus. The top is from Forever21 but I forgot the brand of the shorts.

New line of skincare from Minjun's Philippines: White Skin
Minjun's Philippines is the official distributor of Pax Moly Korean skin care products. Now they made their very first local brand line called White Skin. I ordered my first set as I am real curious on the promised 3 days effect. The skincare line is based mostly on glutathione and collagen.
It's basically a whitening set and it comes with a bleaching soap, toner, serum, cream and lotion. I am praying real hard that hopefully if this is effective they can do some line for anti-acne as well, yes?

Weekend Plans
I will be with my fam this weekend but my dad is sick so I am not sure if we can still go out and celebrate my sister's birthday. And oh, we lost 2 kittens as mentioned by my younger brother. 🙁

I might still do something else on Monday too.

Watch my Fave streamers!
I have also started playing Mobile Legends Bang Bang. I even recorded my 60th day brawl to commemorate but I've decided not to post it. The game really stresses me out so instead of playing I watch game streamers. My favorite is BobongGamer. Do watch his live stream, he can make his audience laugh, that is why his audience is so engage in watching daily even without any skin or diamond give aways.

If you want a pro-player livestream, tips and tricks you may want to try RollerGaming instead.

That is about it! I really do hope to get more subs in my Youtube by the way but I can't find the time to edit my videos. I got a couple pending now haha. Anyway do share your plans for the weekend, Happy Friday everyone!

Review: Skin Potions Set of Tomato Serum, Acne Pie Soap and Snowberry Cream

I found this sampler set from Shopee. You know I have tried a lot of products and not every product will work good so to avoid wasting money I opted to buy a sampler kit. I can attest that she is legit because she also sells authentic full-sized products. I really like the whole concept of this all-natural and cute beauty brand. Look at how adorable they did their website too.

About the brand:
Skin Potions offers organic and natural based products which was often available in bazaars and collaboration stores. Right now they also have kiosks at SM Supermalls too. Skin Potions offers a selection of innovative, high quality skincare and cosmetic products at affordable prices in whimsical packaging that’s guaranteed to work their magic for your skin!

I can't say much about the packaging coz this was a repackaged product but the original packaging of Skin Potions is very cute! They have cartoon-style labels I really adore.

Skin Potions Set of Tomato Serum, Acne Pie Soap and Snowberry Cream 

Shoo away those eeky acne with this sweet treat! It mildly whisks away dead skin cells, irritation and redness, heals and dries up your acne, bacne and pimples in no time. Leaving a soft and moist glow behind. 😍
Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Lye, Vegetable Glycerin, Water, Salicylic Acid, Butyrospermum parkii, Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Papaya Extract, Aloe Vera Oil Extract, Oat Kernels, Shea Butter, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum, FD&C Brown

Review: The soap has this round circles design on it, it reminds me of a honey comb and a bubble wrap. I am not sure why but this photo on their website doesn't show the design, but I swear they have it! The soap doesn't melt easily and it's foamy. It doesn't make my skin dry and it cleanses well too. The scent is not over-powering. 

P295/ 30 g
For a radiant, glowing look; helps restore skin’s natural pH balance; minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores; reduces irritations and inflammations such as acne; relieves and heals sunburnt skin; fights free radicals with an antioxidant powerhouse that includes vitamins A and C, lycopene, and proteins. Recommended for combination to oily skin. 
Ingredients Aqua, Carbopol, Propylene Glycol, Tomato Extract, Witch Hazel Extract, Collagen, Aloe Vera, Vitamin C, Whitenol, Triethanolamine, Phenoxyethanol, Fragranc

Review: I am aloof to try tomato-based products because I find that I am a bit allergic to it but I took the plunge. I like the sweet scent of this serum but it doesn't smell like a tomato. Is there even a tomato scent? 

Price: P465/ 50g
This all-in-one cream fights and heal acne, lightens dark spots, hyperpigmentation, insect bites and even stretch marks! It can also be used as a make up primer, pore filler and pore minimizer while it gives the skin a nice matte finish. This cream is definitely what dreams are made of!
Ingredients: Papaya Extract, Bearberry Extract, Licorice Extract, Snail Filtrate, Whitenol Extract, Acerola Cherry Extract, Ruce Bran Oil, Titanium Dioxide and Essential Oils

Review: This cream smells so sweet like strawberry and I love it. The cream is very thick so you need to blend it well for it to be absorbed. It minimizes my pores and brightens up my skin tone. It does make my skin oil up a bit after a while though but it's fine.

How to use:
1. Create lather of Acne Pie soap onto hands by adding water. Spread the lather gently unto the skin. Rinse and pat dry.
2. Apply a thin layer of Tomato serum, massage onto face gently and leave it for two minutes before applying Strawberry cream.

What I love
I was able to try the products before buying the full-sized!

What I don't

Tomato serum broke me out somehow

Will I repurchase? 
I want to buy a full-sized Snowberry Cream!

I've used this set for a month but I still get breakouts. I first tried using the soap first and it was okay but I got breakouts when I added the Tomato serum. I had no problems with the Strawberry cream though, it's a really good moisturizer. Skin Potions Set of Tomato Serum, Acne Pie Soap and Snowberry Cream is a good skincare set as it's all natural but effect varies from one person to another. You can still try this set and see for yourself it it's a good fit. Let me know in the comments how it went for you!

Review: Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line

It has been a full week of nothing but rain. Giving us more reasons to stay indoors, I bet the malls are not as jam-packed compared to when it was summer. I also want to share that I was able to get hold of a promo Cebu Pacific flight for March and I can't be more excited. Guess where we are heading to? Yay. I'll tell you at the end of this post. So for today, our entry is still related to our search for products for clear skin. Today's review is about Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line.

Human Nature says: 
Be acne-free in three! This three-step regimen is infused with the power of tea tree oil to effectively reduce the appearance of pimples while being gentle on your skin. 
Step 1: Cleanse your face with Acne Defense Facial Wash. 
Step 2: Apply Acne Defense Face Toner using gentle swipes. 
Step 3: Boost your acne-fighting skin care regimen with Acne Defense Solution Gel.

Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line is in the usual plastic packaging with flip top cap for the toner and face wash while a push pump dispenser for the acne gel. They are very hygienic and travel friendly.

I'd really appreciate it if the packaging will be nature friendly as well but I know how convenient plastic bottles are. I am kinda hoping of a policy in the future wherein there is a drop box for plastic discards and it will be collected by the brand where it was from so they can make use of it.

I remember the very first product I tried from Human Heart Nature was their Sunflower oil. I like it but I stopped buying it because it smelled like adobo after some time of using it. Fast forward today, I truly liked how their Acne Defense Solution Gel worked for me so I've decided to try the whole Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line.

Facial wash
100ml/ P169.75
Packed with pimple-fighting tea tree oil and skin-soothing aloe vera, this non-abrasive, alcohol-free facial wash combats pimples without harsh chemicals that can irritate skin.

This facial wash smells and feels refreshing. I like the scent somehow minty and herbal like if I am making sense. The main component of this face wash is tea tree. Per instruction it says to shake well first before using a button-sized amount to massage the face while humming a catchy tune. I've noticed that this face wash doesn't lather up but my skin feels so soft and bright after I pat dry with a towel.

100ml/ P109.75
Break free from breakouts without the harsh chemicals. This tea tree oil powered toner effectively reduces the appearance of pimples and helps reduce skin oiliness. Natural AHAs aid in skin exfoliation, gently promoting skin renewal.

The toner has the same scent with the face wash (well because it is also tea tree! hehe) It goes on clear and clear like usual toners. I find that I need to apply a lot to use this toner. It also somehow felt drying. It doesn't pick up much dirt so I am assuming that the face wash did the job for cleansing.

Acne Gel

Get clearer-looking skin without the harmful side effects of chemical treatments. This potent blend of tea tree oil and pimple-fighting actives penetrates the skin to help crack down on breakouts and dry out blemishes.

Well I don't really feel like digging into how much I love this Acne Gel. I basically finished 5 bottles of it already. It comes in grayish gel which dries out my acne without leaving dark marks.

Clause from this line says 
Purging may occur when first using this product. You may experience a few more pimples coming out and your skin may seem oilier than usual as dirt bacteria and excess oil surface deep-cleaning.

Purging may last 1-3 weeks as it said but mine lasted more than that. I was using the entire line for a month and my case worsened. I figured out it was the toner's fault because at first 3 days I was only using the face wash and my skin was fine. I had recurring pimples which I can't get rid of.

How much and where to buy?

Whole set is available for P429 in their Human Nature online shop before but they often change promos. You can also buy each item separately. 

What I love
Tea tree scent
Face wash fully cleanses my skin
Bright skin after washing
 Acne Gel works as fast as 2 days
Acne Gel doesn't sting
I can buy each item separately
Cruelty free

What I don't

Toner is drying for me
Toner made me break out

Will I repurchase? 
Sadly due to the toner, I will have to pass out in using the entire line but I will keep on loving the Acne Gel.

I realized that this line wasn't for me. I got nothing but breakouts due to the toner but I feel like I can still use the face wash and stick with the acne gel. 

Despite what happened I still adore the brand because they are not just locally made but they are also NPA certified which means they have 100% no harmful chemicals: No parabens, synthetic fragrances, alcohol, SLS/ SLES, formaldehyde or other toxic chemicals. Human Heart Nature is also cruelty free which means they do not test on animals. Keep in mind that if you want cruelty free products you must avoid brands that sell in China. China still requires all imported cosmetics and special-use cosmetics to be tested on animals.


So that is our review for today, and yes before I forget location reveal for our get-away on March - Palawan! Yes we'll be on an early summer get-away and I am very excited! I think the last time I was there was when I was on college during a tour.

Do comment and share your current skincare regimen. For now I went back to my Safeguard and Acne Gel combo to be on the safe side.

Review: Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water

Raise your hands if you love doing makeup! I'll also raise my feet if I can. With all of the new brands and kinds of makeup popping like crazy, who wouldn't love to try and prettify themselves with it? Now I know we all face the hardest part of the day and that is removing all of the makeup! When you're so tired nothing matters anymore, lol. So I am glad I was able to use Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water which was made for the lazy bones like me.

Garnier says:
Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water is the 1st Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water, powerful at removing make-up, even waterproof yet surprisingly gentle on skin. For the 1st time Garnier combined its Micellar Technology with nourishing Argan Oil. The micelles capture and lift away residue like a magnet, while the oils dissolves traces of makeup.& nourishes the skin.

I like the small clear cute bottle plastic packaging. It's similar to the usual Micellar Cleansing water but the cap is in color flesh.

Garnier Micellar Oil-infused Ingredients
I have tried 3 different kinds of Micellar cleansing water before, namely: Maybelline, Loreal and the usual Garnier cleansing water. What made this new product stand out is that it says that it's the very first oil-infused  micellar cleansing water. I was so curious how will it fare because oil and water won't mixed and who knows, it might make me oily!

Just the same I bought Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water. I was able to use 3 cotton pads to completely remove my foundation, waterproof eyeliner, eyebrow and lip tint. Unlike the usual micellar water, this new variant is lightly scented which I really don't mind because I am used to the scent of my Argan Oil at home. It was able to remove my waterproof eyeliner without tugging. The formula is non-greasy nor left an oily film even with the inclusion of oil in it. I seriously tried to use it without rinsing once and it was good because I didn't get breakouts from it. It somehow seemed like my skin was moisturized afterwards.

How much and where to buy?
P149 for 125 ml of product and I got mine from Watsons. The usual Garnier Micellar cleansing small bottle costs P125.

What I love

Removes waterproof eyeliner
Gets rid of makeup without tugging the skin
No need to rinse, perfect for lazy nights!
Moisturizes skin is the extra benefit
Gentle and still feels like water even with the inclusion of Argan Oil
Affordable and accessible product
I got the travel size which is so handy

What I don't

Nothing I can mention

Will I repurchase? 
I might! I like this better than the usual micellar cleansing water but I also want to try the Banila Co cleansing balm.

I commend Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water for a job well done. I like the idea of a Micellar Argan Oil infused product. It simply works! I've already mentioned all of the reasons why I like it, and there is no reason not to.

What cleansing water or make-up remover are you using at the moment? Let me know what you think about this product, just drop down a comment.

Relumins Advance Nutrition Gluta-1000 First Impressions

Have you ever felt like you need to cleanse not just from the outside but also from the inside? Have you ever felt like your skin doesn't get any better even after putting your trust in a complete skincare line? When I bought this Relumins Advance Nutrition Gluta-1000 I wasn't thinking of the whitening benefits. I know that at this point in my life I need to detoxify. I have looked for a new Glutathione to try and saw Bing's Vlog Review which seems very promising.

It was not long until I've decided on getting 2 bottles to make sure I'll know if it's effective or not.

Glutathione Facts: 
Immune booster
Skin whitener

Relumins says:
Proprietory formulation of L-Glutathione complex with Reduced L-Glutathione with Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Rose Hips to improve Glutathione Absorption.

Directions: Take 2 capsules once per day or as directed  by your physician. 

For the Ingredient list please zoom into this photo:

It comes in a box which is good as it secured the product. The plastic bottle inside is tinted red. The brand label's minimalist design is clean looking and was also applied to their other products as well. I've discovered they have whitening creams and other types of Glutathione capsules besides the Gluta-1000. 

This brand is also said to be made in the US. It has a US authenticity sticker on it.

I have tried a couple of Glutathione brands before and I must admit sometimes it's hard to see the difference if you are not observant with your skin and all. I am fair-skinned to start with but my problem is not with my skin tone but the fact that I get a lot of breakouts.

I've started to take Relumins Advance Nutrition Gluta-1000 more than a week ago and I've gotten a pimple on my forehead, eyebrow, and cheeks. It's not as bad as my first breakout because this time the pimples dried up faster than before.

 I was also looking forward to getting rid of the dark spots left by bacne and hopefully get rid of it altogether (I also use a few bath products alongside with the Gluta) I am taking this daily. One capsule 30 minutes after breakfast and another capsule 30 minutes after dinner. I wasn't able to buy a Vitamin C yet and I am not sure if I should take it with Vitamin C because I am quite acidic.

One time I took the capsule wrong and it stuck on my throat. I guess it's a bit big for me, I've learned my lesson to careful in taking the capsule.

How much and where to buy?
P990 at BeautyMNL. I believe you can also find this in Watsons and Shopee but be diligent in buying as there are a lot of fake ones. Make sure to read the feedback first to make sure you're getting the real deal.

So far~
It's too early to comment on the effect of the Relumins Advance Nutrition Gluta-1000 although I've been taking it continuously for more than a week now. My boyfie says I am glowing nowadays which might be a hint that the Glutathione is working somehow but I can't give all the credit to Relumins just yet. I will be making 30 days and 60 days video for this product so stay tuned!

Do follow me in Youtube channel as I'll be posting an unboxing too and the next updates. We also have a Facebook page for any questions etc. Or you can comment down below, let me know if you're also currently taking Glutathione capsules for detoxification!

Life Update: BER Month and Shopping haul

BER months just started with a BANG! It's suddenly cold and breezy right now and it adds up to the early Christmas feeling. I just want to give an update, do subscribe to my Youtube channel right now if you haven't yet.

I have just gotten a LED ring light that I can use for my next Youtube videos and it was the best decision I've made so far. Life has been good lately and I couldn't be any more grateful. I just had a quick haul, check out below photos.

Been able to watch John Wick 3 and The Innocent Witness and both are good movies. For small screen drama I am not watching Hotel Del Luna which is ending soon, too bad! It is a great korean drama with a very unique interesting plot about death and ghosts. Do watch it, it's highly recommended.

I got this new products from my online shopping, Watsons and the supermarket. I might still need to practice more in photography though as these photos below doesn't give justice to the led ring light haha. But forgive me now, just scroll through them.

Review: Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner in Fresh and Bouncy

Hello September! Now that it's cold and breezy my hair doesn't get too greasy anymore as compared in the summer. It's not a big secret that I am a big fan of Cream Silk, during Lazada's sale I got myself 5 big bottles of Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue! How crazy is that? Next time I'll get a one year supply if I have the funds LOL. Anyway so I ran out of my favorite conditioner and just in time, I saw a new commercial which was the Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner in Fresh and Bouncy which is for limp and flat hair. At first, I wasn't even aware of the variant, all I know is this new variant is baby pink!

What is it? 
Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner in Fresh and Bouncy for limp and flat hair. 
Cream Silk's lightest and freshest conditioning system yet. Infused with the power and Hydracollagen Technology, It gets instantly absorbed to feel hydrated and quench dryness.  

3 Main Points:

After shampoo massage through hair from mid to tip. Rinse well after 1 minute. For best results use every day.

I will be honest in saying that the reason why I purchase this was because of the packaging's color. Call me shallow on this matter but pink plays a big part in my decisions haha.

The flip cap opening is typical for the Cream Silk conditioners. Too bad because I got a defective one which won't close and the product was a mess when I got it from the plastic bag.

So like I've mentioned I didn't even know I was buying a variant for limp and flat hair, my hair is neither very oily though so I think I am somewhere in between those lines. My hair as you all know is chemically treated and usually dry. For this line, Cream Silk has this in Fresh and Hydrated variant for Oily and Greasy hair. This one, on the other hand, is a baby blue bottle.

The first impression is that it smells very feminine although I like my Triple Keratin Rescue scent more. That can just be me though, this one also smells nice but to each is own. The conditioner itself is white and more on the watery side. If this is some other brand I will think that it won't moisturize my hair at all because it seemed so light. The formula is water-based true to their claims and it's very easy to spread on my hair strands. Rinsing the conditioner is also quick and easy due to the easy rinse formula and I've only left it for a minute. Good on the days where you are in a hurry and it won't leave a residue as it's non-greasy. On weekends I like to let it stay longer  on my hair.

True enough, my hair is bouncy after it air-dried. My hair has the natural volume so I can't say it's volumized but it's light and fragrant. I want to believe the intense hydration because my hair doesn't feel dry to touch now.

How much and where to buy?

P228.75 for 300ml in Puregold Supermarket. You can also snag a bottle in Watsons or leading supermarkets nationwide.

What I love
Water-based which makes it a conditioner that will weigh the hair down
My hair is bouncy but still light
Hair is soft to touch and not dry
Non-greasy formula
Easy rinse which means it'll save me water
Perfect conditioner to use when in a hurry
Product is available almost anywhere

What I don't
Nothing I can mention

Will I repurchase? 
I might try the blue one next time!

Although I really really love the Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue, I must say that their new line Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner in Fresh and Bouncy is also true to their claims. I was able to hydrate my hair in as fast as 1 minute and I couldn't be any happier. Price is also a big thumbs up of course. Overall, I recommend you guys to try this conditioner.

Below is a sneak peek to my Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner in Fresh and Bouncy Vlog Review coming up soon on my Youtube channel do subscribe!
Have you tried this hair conditioner ? Or what is your current brand? Let me know in the comments.

Review: EPSA Brazilian Blowout Keratin Treatment

Heavy rains everyday! As you can see I am trying my best to be active my social media accounts lately. This post is a bit of a throwback, I already finish this stuff! We are more on hair care ladies and gents as I seldom do makeup nowadays. I am mostly at home because I started  my homebased job back in June. Okay so to start, our review for today is for EPSA Brazilian Blowout Keratin Treatment. I have gotten this for my heavily bleached hair. I needed to get some shine even though my hair is real dry. I don't really cut my hair but I'm fond of changing colors.

What is it? 
EPSA Brazilian Keratin Blow Out Treatment is an innovative Solution to a healthier and smoother hair. Frizz-free and Tangle-free for normal, colored, treated, rebonded or bleached hair, making it more manageable and straighter.

One set of EPSA Brazilian Blowout comes in 3 bottles - shampoo, keratin treatment and after treatment conditioner.

They are in big brown plastic easy to pump bottles.

So based on instructions:
Shampoo hair using #1 EPSA Clarifying Shampoo bottle to open the cuticle of the hair for optimal results.
👒 Wash hair twice for all hair types.
👒 Towel dry hair leaving enough moisture.
👒 Section hair into four parts. (wearing of gloves is important).

Let us start with EPSA clarifying shampoo. I am already aware that this will be drying as this type of shampoo cuts through product buildup and oils to leave your hair squeaky clean. Read more: what is clarifying shampoo? The consistency is very thin, and I have no complaints on the smell. Given that my hair is bleached I tried to use as little of this  product as much as possible.

Next is the EPSA Keratin Blowout:
👒 Apply #2 EpSA Keratin Blow Out bottle into hair using brush, 1/8 inch away from scalp to the ends.
👒 Do not over-saturate, remove excess product using a fine tooth comb.
👒 Do not rinse, blow dry the hair up to 100% dry using a round brush.
👒 After blow drying the product on the hair.
👒 Proceed with ironing.
👒 Using a flat iron with 230°c, start at the nape of the neck taking 1-2 inch sections (Paper thin sections).
👒 Slowly move iron from root to ends.
👒 Pass over each section 3-4 times for sensitized hair or 4-8 times for resistant / virgin hair.
👒 After ironing the hair, rinse hair with water and apply #3 EpSA Conditioning Cream bottle then rinse thoroughly. 
👒 Towel dry hair then final blow dry up to 100% dry before ironing again (optional).

The keratin treatment smells like chemical. I literally had my eyes crying because of the scent lingers even when I have already covered my head with the shower cap. While ironing I felt like my strands are being drier with each pass of iron.

Lastly will be the conditioner. The conditioner is very thin as well. I doubt that it will do anything to my dry strands. So here is my before and after photo. I actually managed to finish this set and I must say nothing changed with my hair condition.

How much and where to buy?
P1300 via Shopee

What I love

  • I like how straight my hair looks after the process and it stays that way for 3 days even when I wash it.

What I don't

  • The whole treatment is a tedious task.
  • I felt my hair became drier after the whole process
  • Didn't gave any shine 
  • The keratin treatment smells like very bad chemical, and it tears me up

Will I repurchase? 

I don't really feel that EPSA Brazilian Blowout Keratin Treatment did any wonderful for my hair as the effect was only temporary. The process is also very tedious and the effect is just mediocre. I also don't like the fact that I am tearing up every time I use it. Sadly this hair care product is not for me, I might try have another brazilian treatment but the next time, I will go to the salon.

Review: Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Solution Gel

Hello lovelies! Don't you just love binge watching kdrama every now and then? I can't praise enough how immaculate their actors and actress skin is. Being born with acne prone skin I seldom experience clear complexion. Maybe there are good days but there are more breakouts than I can ever imagine! And so, I am always on the lookout for acne gels. I tend to jump from one brand to another because I have noticed that after a while, my skin gets used to the product and it stops on being effective on me. I found Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Solution Gel which seems promising. It's offered by a really good local brand Human heart nature. They vouch for natural and local sourced ingredients. What is there not to love? I have been dying to try their mineral makeup, I'll maybe buy one when I finish my stash.

What is it? 
Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Solution Gel
Clear skin without the risk
Get clearer-looking skin without the harmful side effects of chemical treatments. This potent blend of tea tree oil and pimple-fighting actives penetrates the skin to help crack down on breakouts and dry out blemishes.

Fewer pimples in 7 days*
In an independent 7-day clinical trial, fewer pimples were observed on 76% of Acne Defense Solution Gel users compared with only 26% of Popular Brand B users and 29% of popular Brand P users.

*2-week independent clinical study on users of Human Nature Acne Defense Solution Gel and users of popular chemical acne treatment brands

Be acne-free in three!
Step 1: Cleanse your face with Acne Defense Facial Wash.
Step 2: Apply Acne Defense Face Toner using gentle swipes

source: Human Heart Nature

The packaging is sanitary. It offers an easy to press top.

The acne gel indeed smells like tea tree and smells soothing for me. I dab this on my zits and it doesn't sting. I always make sure to apply Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Solution Gel whenever I get breakouts and I noticed that it minimizes the acne after 2 days. It quickly diminishes the bump afterwards and I really like how it doesn't leave dark marks. It's like I never had acne at all.

I've tried other acne gels in the market before but it leaves dry patches and dark marks. This on the other hand is a winner on both categories. 
How much and where to buy?
P200 in Human Heart Nature stores. Trinoma Malls offers their product already!

What I love
  • It minimizes my pimples in as fast as 1-2 days
  • It doesn't sting as much as chemically laden anti-acne skincare
  • It didn't leave dark marks
  • It's very affordable
What I don't
Nothing I can mention

Will I repurchase? 
YES. This is my beauty staple now.

 Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Solution Gel just simple works. It is on sale for P200 but only you can get it for P160 from authorized sellers in Shopee.
