My philosophy on being beautiful is to keep everything simple, and stay as true as possible to my natural look. I’m not a strong believer in make-up. Most of the time, it feels to me like wearing a sticky mask, or wearing war paint. Beauty should never, ever be an act of war. It should be effortless.
I do wear lipstick, eyeliner and eyebrow pencil almost every day. But all this is just to enhance what is already there and not to mask it. Besides, too much chemicals on your face is not very good at all. I prefer to have a beautiful, glowing skin than wear make-up to cover it all up. And so, we move on to what this whole blog entry is all about — skin care products. And we’re reviewing some.
First on the list is Purity by Philosophy.
On my hand is a travel size version I got as a freebie from all my purchases, the one in the background is the regular size that I use all the time
i am the type of person who gets loyal to a brand. that’s why, when i found the perfect moisturizer for my skin type, i never tried any other moisturizer again until today…
i started using moisturizer on my face since i’ve arrived in Singapore. in the Philippines, my face would always get sweaty sticky oily all throughout the day, so i never really developed the habit of moisturizing my face on a daily basis.
Crabtree and Evelyn, my all-time favorite brand of body lotion
but in Singapore, for some reason, i found it less humid and more drying not just on my face, but on the rest of my body. this is why is started using Kiehl’s facial moisturizer. it was one of the brands recommended by a friend for the best lip balm ever. it’s a good thing i didn’t stop at buying a simple lip balm and extended my curiosity with the moisturizer because it turned out to be just perfect for my skin. i even bought a facial wash to go along with it. and it was also perfect. Kiehl’s is absolutely one of my favorite brands.
