I believe it was a year ago when I learned about the Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless foundation. It was that kind of product that I’ve been wanting to try out for so long but couldn’t. It seemed to be, from what I’ve been hearing, a very […]
Picking an outfit may not be the best moments anyone experiences every day. And I am guilty of that. I tend to spend most of the mornings rummaging through my closet and ending up still nothing to wear but my frown. Believe me, not the […]
Did you ever get the feeling of excitement when a makeup product you’ve been eyeing for so long suddenly becomes at your reach? I did. A bunch of times and this one was not an exemption. Rimmel London’s Stay Matte Primer had been in my […]
Aside from my obsession with body butter and hand creams, I also give a fair amount of love for face masks. I have a few collection of sheet masks (to be exact) from Olay, Innisfree and Etude House for the time being. But I’m starting to shy away from them because I feel like I’m not getting my money’s worth. Don’t get me wrong, these brands have amazing sheet masks (and quite affordable, too) but I believe I can save up a lot if they’re not on sheets (wait, what?).
As someone who has never used masks that is not in sheet form, I was pretty excited to finally try one and the fact that this one came from the dead sea got me even more riled up. Although, I got a little skeptical about how my skin would react to it since I do have such sensitive skin. It could either go completely great or completely bad. And I was hoping so hard that it’s not the latter part.
This mask is 100% natural containing more than 27 natural minerals and vitamins plus Aloe Vera, so there’s no doubt that my skin will benefit a lot.
When I first opened the package and poured it into a container, it looked (not gonna lie) kinda gross. Swiping a small amount on my face, I noticed that it goes a long way. So, this pack can pretty much last you a month or more, depending on how many times you will use it.
It doesn’t have a very pleasant smell for some obvious reasons (it’s mud, guys.) and it did feel tingly or itchy on the face and the feeling heightens as the mask dried out. But I did feel that my face was glowing and that it minimized my pores (which is a struggle for me). It gives your face more moisture and it definitely works for someone with oily skin.
Overall, I’m liking it a lot and so far, it’s been my go-to face mask.
So, what mud masks would you recommend?
Everyday a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never […]
When I first learned that we’ll be visiting Universal Studios, I got really excited. Pete knows how much of a sucker I and my brothers are for theme parks. It’s basically our favourite kind of park. So, I packed a really comfy outfit (because I know I’ll be wandering a lot) and brought a sling bag. And during our trip, my camera was on, capturing every nook and cranny, and filming the entire time. It was pretty tricky but I was able to manage and balance between being a full-time photographer to a model (lol).
The line at the studio was crazy. It seemed like everyone had the same plans as we did. And despite the fact that we came minutes before the studio was about to open, we were still last in line. In addition to that, the weather wasn’t on our side. It was already drizzling when we came and it rained heavily when we got inside.
Talk about luck, huh? So, we spent the first hour under the sheds to stay dry. We even bought plastic raincoats to be able to wander around. I remember just looking sadly at the huge roller coaster right in front of us and wishing it would stop raining.
Unfortunately, some of the outdoor rides remained closed during our stay. It was heartbreaking especially the fact that queues for the indoor rides were crazy long. I practically wasted hours just falling in line.
Even though I wasn’t able to ride almost anything, I still enjoyed taking pictures of the amazing, colourful structures inside. It actually felt like we were celebrating something because of how festive it was there. We even had the chance to see the minions live in action on stage, performing.
But what I truly enjoyed was seeing a castle for the first time. It may be Shrek and Fiona’s but still a castle nonetheless. It was so pretty and magical. The walk to the village made me feel like I was one of the townspeople. And again, the castle was breathtaking (for me though).
And of course, we checked out what’s inside. Inside the castle, we met Pinocchio and the pigs (who were all trapped in a box). Everyone was asked to watch their little skit before instructed to go inside the theater. Turns out, there was a short 3D film where the seats move and something from the inside sprays us with water. It was good, childish but good.
