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.

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.

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 it?
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

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

Will I repurchase it? 

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 creams or sunblock? Would you be trying this cream? 

Kindly let me know what else you want to see from me in the future and if you want to catch up I am available on Instagram as @meowchien, not sure if you're already following me but I am also on Facebook and Youtube!

Review: Nature Republic Soothing and Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

I bought this on a whim. Lels as you see, I am fan of multi-purpose products, it makes me feel like I save up money. But hehe funny is that I am easily swayed by such promotion which leads me to buy more which is not saving at all. How ironic is that?

Anyway for today I will be reviewing a product I got from Nature Republic, its Nature Republic Soothing and Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel which I call Aloe Vera Gel for short. When I entered their store I was welcomed by this in-store signage.

8 purpose in one! Sugoiii~
And I have this certain thing for 'aloe vera'. I like how refreshing aloe vera is and yes its a no brainer! So off to the review:

What is it? 
It is a soothing aloe vera gel with 8 uses.

It's in a tub. I know I know, you might say its unhygienic but I think its the best way to keep a gel product. It has a screw cap with a transparent lid inside to make it secure

I really intend to use Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel as a moisturizer. Crazy, I haven't tried the other uses but I will! I promise to update this when I am not as busy. I really like how non-sticky it is and it is easily absorbed by the skin. The scent is love love love! Its therapeutic~ <3 Just like how I expect this aloe vera gel should be! Its a total treat on the under eyes, especially now that its summer. Its very timely that I bought this as its an instant refreshing product to use after a long tiring day of work.

I also use an exfoliant now but with the help of Nature Republic Soothing Aloe Vera Gel I bid the flaky skin goodbye!

How much and where to buy? 
Nature Republic stores in SM. 300ml of product only costs P245.

What I love
Not sticky
Not oily
No more flaked skin during exfoliation
Soothes skin
Easily absorbed by the skin
Aloe vera scent

What I don't 
It has alcohol in it

This is a bomb if used to relax swollen eyes! Hooray for pamper time~
Can be applied using fingers or with cotton pads

Will I repurchase? 
I am guessing that I will!

A great aloe vera product. Nature Republic Soothing and Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel is my new favorite moisturizer. I am serious in getting back my skin care routine to ensure clear complexion hehe ...And my first step is to change what I use to products I can really count on, hello korean products!

Have you tried this product from Nature Republic? Feel free to share your favorite moisturizer at the moment. *winks*

Review: Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream

Ayo beauties! It's been so long since I have been missing in action. I was even contemplating if I should go back or what since I really do not have the time to produce entries anymore. Good thing, I was inspired to continue by a new friend! Hi there Alyssa! ^^

I will do my best to get entries up during my not-so-much free time. There has been too much stress that I felt I need a break. But hey, duty calls, that is why don't have much chance to see the sun lately. Everyday is like just me and the air conditioner. Hello dry skin! Yikes. Dry skin makes my pores more prominent, another problem eh? Based on my story you can tell that my skin haven't been spoiled much lately. Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream to the rescue. Yay, something I bought online after some research. I am intrigued on what wonders Snail Filtrate can do to my skin so I gave in.

What Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream says:

 Rejuvenate your skin using the powerful ability of snails!
Snail Slime’s Surprising Regeneration!

1. Regenerate your skin, the same way snails regenerate their own shell!
The benefit to human was discovered after workers in a snail farm found that the skin of their hands was baby soft after handling the snails all day. Therefore it’s obvious that what restores a snails shell can have equally astounding reaction on human skin.

2. What is snail slime extract? Snail slime is a source of copper peptides. Most of the research on copper peptides relates to wound healing and there is a large base of evidence that the same magical effects can repair wrinkles.

Highly Recommended For:
- Acne scars
- Sensitive and tired skin due to environmental factors
- Skin pores losing elasticity / large pores
- Uneven dark skin tone
- Irritated skin from shaving or skin clinic procedures
- Increasing fine wrinkles from losing moisture and elasticity

Korean No.1 Snail Cream contains at least 92% of Snail excretion.
Don't be fooled by cheap creams which only contain less than 10% of the active snail excretion ingredient. This is the only one with so many quality ingredients, including vitamins.

Buy with confidence. * Why is it so famous Snail Cream in Korea? Mizon Snail Cream is a miraculous cream made with the natural secretion of the snail. It improves skin elasticity and supplying nutrition to the skin, in a concentrated and optimal way by utilizing scientific cosmetic technology. It prevents skin problems, which can be cause by various factors, and keep the skin youthful and healthy by protecting and regenerating.

Snail Secretion Filtrate, Butylene Glycol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether, Dimethylsilane, Polysorbate2-, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Glycosyl Trehalose, Hydrogenated Starch Hydolsyate, Triethanolamine, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Caprylyl Glyocol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Polyacrylate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Camellias Sinensis Leaf Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, Betula Platylphylla Japonica Juice, Tropolone, Copper Tripeptide-1, Allantoin, Panthenol, Olea Europaea (olive) Fruit Oil, Helianthus Annuus (sunflower) Seed Oil, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA

Snail Secretion Filtrate – This product is comprised of 74% snail mucin. Snail mucin is skin friendly because it contains an array of antioxidants, and proteins as well as elastin and glycolic acid. It’s also antimicrobial, and in addition to being shown to effectively promote wound healing in a couple of in-vitro studies, there was a newer study released in April of this year that showed snail secretion to be effective when it comes to repairing photodamage. It’s especially helpful for acne, overall skin tone, and reducing acne scarring. (Study: Effects of Snail Secretion Filtrate on Photoaged Skin)

What it is?
A gel type of skin moisturizer which is said to have anti-aging and healing properties. You can tell that I'm sold on their claim to give elasticity to pores.

Tube type packaging is simply cute. Just the right size filled with 45ml. snail goodie. There is even a seal to prove its authenticity. It is hygienic and the plastic tube is pink! Need I say more?

My Experience:
Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream has a similar color and texture to a jelly. It is thick like a cream but spreads like a gel. It is unscented (but has a distinct very faint smell) and leaves a cool soothing feeling to the skin once applied. I usually use this before going to bed as a night cream and before applying make-up as a make-up base. I notice that my face looks fresh when I wake up. Besides seeing radiant skin day after day I noticed that my skin looks firmer as well. However I can't attest if it reduced wrinkles because I got none of those yet.

How much and Where to Buy? P295/ 45 ml. tube in Facebook Korean online shops.

What I love?
  • It's a good make-up base
  • Soothing to the skin
  • Skin looks radiant the next day
  • Not sticky nor greasy.
  • Did not broke me out
  • Easily absorbed by skin but leaves a thin film afterwards
 What I don't?
  • Product is not accessible
  • Sadly no visible changes on pores (which was expected)
  • Not moisturizing
  • Does not clear up acne nor lighten scars
Tap tap your skin for better product absorption.
Can be a good makeup base or night cream.
Do not forget to moisturize because this baby does not hydrate skin.

Will I repurchase?
Yes. Mizon Snail Cream is 74% snail filtrate, natural and not to mention affordable. I would not mind repurchasing because it has a multi-functional product for me: makeup base and night cream.

So far I have not experience drastic change based on what Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream promises. However I am positive that natural products can give visible results with continuous usage. Natural products are safe and okay to be use for a prolonged time so I wouldn't worry. If you would want to try out snail secretion filtrate products then you might want to try this first before venturing into more expensive snail products.
 JUST AN UPDATE: Yay~ Lookie! I've thought of adding more fiber into my diet by eating oatmeal for breakfast. I've bought two different brands of the same oatmeal flavor I like for Cerelac - Banana! <3
