NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder Review

Some say that eyebrows are as important as a good set of teeth—both are immediately noticed by many. Eyebrows highlight a person’s features, and a groomed pair frames one’s eyes better.

Review: Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack

The thing with Korean skincare is that they can be very tricky to try on, if there’s any English translation on the packaging at all. I once got beauty samples from a friend who was in Korea but up to this day, I still have not figured out what I’m supposed to do with them […]

The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion Review

A cushion foundation that recharges skin with moisture while controlling sebum for long-lasting freshness! I’m not a fan of cushion foundations or any foundations for that matter because I easily breakout when using these products on my face. I only use specific base products na hiyang sa face ko.

Review: Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream

I am very cautious when using anti-oil or any form of whitening creams on my face because of my abnormal sensitivity to beauty products. Remember the Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream from one BDJ’s previous beauty boxes? When I got my sample sachets, I was not very excited to try them. Garnier Light Complete […]

The Art of the Facial and My Top 5


Being quite synonymous to the adjective “pain,” I’ve shied away from the ritual of going through monthly facials. To me, they were nothing but stones to crack upon one’s head with all that pricking.

I got a huge, huge, huge pimple over my cheek the other month (it was a hormonal-related breakout). I didn’t have time to go to the derma, so this one was ripening before my eyes and it was taking all of my self-control not to pop it. Unfortunately, it ended up bursting after I took […]
