Last December, I traveled to the States with my family. It was winter, and my skin is not a big fan of the cold (and frankly, neither am I). I knew my skin was going to need some extra nourishment, so I took my Josie Maran Argan Oil with me to use as a daily moisturizer. It really helped keep my face hydrated, and when I went back to the Philippines, I continued to use it, despite the humidity and the fact that I have an oily t-zone.

Unless you live under a rock, then you know how popular kBeauty is in the world today. From fun face masks to 10-step skincare routines, Korean makeup and skincare have definitely been making waves. I’m not too big on kBeauty, but lately I’ve been really curious about some Korean skincare products. Luckily, Korean products are easily accessible in the Philippines, and we also have Althea!

Today’s post is a little on the TMI side, but I think it’s something that should be talked about more. Ladies, I know you all know how hard it can be to be on your period. Not only do we experience cramps, mood swings, bloating, and other different physical and emotional symptoms, we also have the added hassle of bleeding everywhere. Luckily, we have a lot of different options on how to take care of this bleeding, from pads to tampons and even to period panties. For this post, I’ll be talking about one option we have whenever it’s that time of the month: the menstrual cup.
Now, I love skincare as much as the next beauty junkee, and I’ve tried and tested loads of products before. Because of this, it might come as a shock to you that my daily skincare routine only consists of 3-4 products. My routine is completely streamlined, and honestly, my skin has never looked better. I was able to reduce the number of products I use on my face by clearly telling myself what my skin needs: hydration and acne prevention.
Not only is it my birthday today, it’s also the day that this blog goes public. I’m extremely excited to have a space where I can write about anything I want (but I already know that I’m going to write mostly about makeup and skincare).
