Holika-Holika Egg Soap

Cute stuffs are very tempting. I always end up buying stuff because they are cute. Bad me, I know! Packaging always attracts a customer (like me). The cuter or prettier it is, the more I would likely to buy it. However, some of this stuff will end either in my beauty basket or in the my sister's beauty basket or perhaps the trash bin. So where did Holika-Holika ended?

Holika-Holika Egg Soap

-two soaps in one box :)-

My say:
Performance: 3.5/5 stars
Packaging: 4/5 stars
Pricing: 3/5 stars

An egg on my face?!?Well it can. A lot of bloggers do recommend an egg mask to help tighten your pores. Though I haven't tried it so I'm not sure if this little thing actually works. But it does. There is a tightening feel after using it. My skin felt tight and clean. Help keep breakouts at bay. It can be a bit drying for me though. It also did little help on my blackheads. Still a great face scrub will do it. It doesn't have any overpowering scent. It was just pleasant enough for my nose :) I think I've used one egg for almost 4 months. That is in daily use and twice a day (morning and night). The egg-like packaging really works. However, finding the right soap dish can be bothersome. I like my soap dish that has a cover. Most soap dish in the market are kinda flat. Finding bigger/rounder that would really fit it is not that easy. I think I bought this on sale from my suki. I can't remember anymore the exact price :( I still have the other soap with me. I'm using another cleanser right now. If I'm done with it, I'll probably used it. I'm not yet sure if I want to try this again. I'm not really a fan of bar soap. I prefer either the liquid or cream type. There are 4 other variants of this soap. 

              1) White (like mine) - good for tightening pores and makes skin sleek
              2) Green - helps control excessive sebum and moisturizes
              3) Yellow - deep cleansing of pores
              4) Black - suitable for sensitive skin and removes blackhead


Looking for a good cleansing soap? Probably you would like this. Keep safe everybody :)

Nature Republic Eau de Shine Blossom Powder Pact SPF 25 PA++

Powder is essential for an oily babe. It helps reduce the oiliness of the skin plus gives that smooth, clean finish. It also provides a fresh look and feel.However, not all powders can do this. Finding the right one that you can call as HOLY GRAIL is not that easy. I had some powders which works wonders while some were a disappointment. How would I rate the Nature Republic Eau de Shine Powder?

Nature Republic Eau de Shine Blossom Powder Pact #21
- a long-lasting, oil-free matte powder foundation -

My say:
Performance: 2/5 stars
Pricing: 2/5 stars
Packaging: 3/5 stars

This is not the first powder I tried from this brand. Sad to say, both were a disappointment. No matte finish at all. This is a terrible powder. However, it didn't gave me any allergies plus it comes with an SPF 25 :) At least I got some sun protection. I think they have a new packaging for this. I'm not quite sure if this is still available since I can't find it in their site. But I'm not gonna buy this again.The packaging is cute but its hard to look for a back up puff for this since we don't have (yet) a Nature Republic store here. I bought this on sale for Php 575 at again my suki

How's the first day of the week?!? Keep the positive vibes coming :)
