Review: Pax Moly Acne Spot Eliminator

If you're like me, you've probably tried every acne spot treatment out there. You know, the ones that are supposed to dry out your blemishes and make them disappear. Hoping that it won't leave any pesky marks on your skin. But sometimes they just make your skin worst, making it feel drier and more irritated. And, sometimes, they even seem to cause the breakouts. So what's a girl to do? This is when I remembered about a good ole product I've used before, enter Pax Moly Acne Spot Eliminator~

What is it?

A powerful treatment to remove existing acne and help preventing future breakouts. 
How to use: Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying. Apply a thin layer on affected areas.


It comes in a shiny black box with english translations and clear expiration date. I might have gotten a product from the old batch because mine's expiry is March of this year. I don't mind but I do hope to get a product from the fresh batch next time. Below is the Pax Moly Acne Spot Cream ingredient list:

Pax Moly Acne Spot Eliminator says it'll help to fight fade and prevent future blemishes for spotless looking skin. The cream itself smells medicinal somehow. It is a watery type of cream which makes it quickly absorbed by the skin. 

I use the Pax Moly Acne Spot Cream after I wash, tone and moisturize. I only need a pea size amount and it'll be enough for the whole face. I use this both before and after my breakout. I find that this works best as an after breakout cream rather than before. It diminishes dark spots after a few days. 

What I like best about is it doesn't sting, it doesn't contain nor smell like it has harsh chemicals in it.

How much and where to buy?
I got this cream for P320 in Shopee.

What I love
  • Call me weird but I like the scent.
  • It's quickly absorbed.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Affordable
  • Cream gives no stingy feeling when applied
  • It does get rid of my dark spots

What I don't
  • Only available online 
  • I got a product near expiry :(
Will I repurchase? 
YES! This is my 3rd one!

I am quite satisfied with how the cream eliminated my dark spots as it promised. It is even moisturizing so that's a plus! If you're looking for a spot treatment that actually works, check out Pax Moly Acne Spot Eliminator. You won't be disappointed.

New Year, New Eyes with Executive Optical

Executive Optical Love your Eyes

Executive Optical Prescription Glasses

Executive Optical Glasses

So for the first day of the year I have decided to get a new prescription glasses. There are a lot of options and I've visited all of them - George Optical, Owndays, Vision Express but alas I have ended up on Executive Optical.

The Why:
The staff in Executive Optical is highly welcoming and so does their shop. It's bright and there are frames available to be tried on. I also like how there are available seats around so you can be seated while waiting for your turn.

When buying glasses it is recommended that you have 8 hours of sleep (and I do!) I'm glad I slept early on New Year. 

The free check-up is really good! The check is very thorough. They don't just check using their special devices, they also do it again using the manual method of trying out different kinds of the actual lenses. The optometrist is highly friendly as well and I got to ask a lot of questions about taking care of the eyes and such.

She said our eye grade can possibly be maintained when you reach 30 or 40. Then there are 2 ways to improve the eyesight. 1 is through lasik which not everyone is a candidate of then 2 is by using an overnight lens which you can wear while sleeping. The special lenses she mentioned is available in vision centers and might definitely be priced high but I want to actually look for it. 

My eye grade was 2.75 years ago and I wasn't able to have it checked for 2 years due to pandemic. It quickly jumped to 4.00 but I was allowed back then to just do 3.75. Now when I got checked, my new grade is 5.00! My optometrist said I can get a 4.75 grade contact lenses (a less .25 grade than my actual) because she said the lenses adhered to my eyes and there will be no distance to it unlike with glasses.

What did I get?
I've purchased an EO Eyewear frame (P2,599) with a multicoated/blue light lenses (+P900).

What I love
For the longest time, I didn't know they give out this cool boxes when purchasing EO Eyewear brand frames. I guess I have never bought the EO Eyewear frame in all of my years of getting frames here, lol. But it is cool. They even give out a free book.

This is your sign to get your new prescription glasses!

Happy New Year, Welcome 2023!

What are your Resolution for this New Year? Any plans or things you want to thank for in 2022?

Looking Back
The start of each year has always been a hopeful one. However a few months into the year my job contract ended due to the company's financial issues. 

I got a new contract after a month but seriously, having no job for a month gave me anxiety. 

Fast forward:
I enjoyed my time in my new job and I was also able to land on a side gig of creating reels for an Interior design company.

Welcome 2023!
I have setting unimaginable goals for my family this 2023. I really hope I can do it and I hope to become really productive. 

A few things I wanna do:
  • Create more blog entries by reviewing more products I got in 2022.
  • Meet my friends I have not seen ever since pandemic started
  • Get my Youtube channel rolling
  • Be more visible in social media - Start a new account for my freelance whatnots
  • Learn new skills that I can offer as a service
  • Finish the current books I have and buy more

I am pretty much again, hopeful of what lies ahead. Thank you for visiting my blog and if you're new here I hope you can go bookmark this page so I can see you again!

Luckily, we have a lot of options in these terms. I was looking for something light as it was often humid in our place. Our product spotlight for today is on Vaseline Healthy Bright Gluta-Hya Serum Burst UV Lotion.

Do not stay long in the sun even while using a product with sunscreen. Store products away from sunlight. In the unlikely event of skin irritation

It's in a big squeeze-type bottle. I like how Vaseline made it luxurious looking by making the bottle gold and rose gold.

I was back from a recent beach away and I needed something light to soothe and lighten my skin. I saw Vaseline Healthy Bright Gluta-Hya Serum Burst UV Lotion and it was long since I used Vaseline so I gave in. The first thing I noticed is the luxurious smell. It is similar to perfume and I really like it, especially the Dewy Radiance. Once applied to the skin the lotion is quickly absorbed. My skin feels moisturized but not sticky at all. I love how it doubles as a UV lotion. 

How much and where to buy it?

What I love
  • Serum texture
  • Smooth soft skin after use
  • Non-sticky
  • Very light on the skin
  • Smells like an expensive perfume

What I don't
  • Nothing I can mention

Will I repurchase it? 
I might try their other variants!

Vaseline Healthy Bright Gluta-Hya Serum Burst UV Lotion is something I don't regret purchasing! I love the scent, the light non-sticky texture and it's definitely good to use even for Philippine weather!

Review: NRB Magic Underarm Whitening Deo Cream

It has been pretty rainy lately. I couldn't go out with friends yesterday — but it wasn't raining too much today. Talk about timing. Today's review is long overdue. I was looking for a product to brighten my underarm when I found NRB Magic Underarm Whitening Deo Cream.

What is it? 
NRB Magic Underarm whitening Deo Cream is a deodorant that can whiten your underarm in as fast as 2 weeks. 
Deodorant/Removes Odor 
Antiperspirant/Removes Sweat ​
Smoothens Skin 
Removes Chicken Skin 
​Lesser Hair Growth
Non-sticky ​
No yellow stain 
100% No mercury content
Safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mommies. 

Effective also for:
Dark Elbows 
Dark Knees
Dark Bikini Lines 
Foot Odor 
Lightens Stretchmark 

Special caution: 
Don't apply after shaving or plucking, because the pores are open, there's a chance it can irritate the underarms. 
Best use Waxing for faster results. Apply the product after 24 or 48 hours. Manufactured by a Multi Awarded Brand!

It's in a typical plastic container with NRB sticker label. The product is not filled to the brim.

I bought NRB Magic Underarm Whitening Deo Cream with hopeful spirits that it will work so I made sure to buy at the correct price and availed 2 tubs. It has a fragrant scent and the texture of the product is pretty much similar to tawas. I am not sure why they call it 'cream' because the texture is nowhere similar to a cream. When opened for too long, the product loses moisture as well (similar to tawas) then I needed to rehydrate it with water so I can use it again.

How much and where to buy it?
It comes in 2 sizes 20g and 40g.

What I love
  • Affordable

What I don't
  • It didn't make any difference on my underarm.
  • Texture is not cream but grainy, similar to tawas or rock salts.
Will I repurchase? 

Sadly NRB Magic Underarm Whitening Deo Cream didn't work on me. It was great to see other positive reviews on this underarm whitening product, but I didn't see any difference after 2 tubs. I was actually late when I searched and found out that FDA warned consumers regarding the purchase of the product last year.

My search for the best underarm whitening cream continues!
