My Sephora Lip Scrub Review..

This post is about Sephora’s Honey Lip Scrub that was given to me by a sweet friend. I haven’t really notice the effect of this lippie so I can’t really tell if it’s a good product especially for those who are having the same dilemma that I have – dry lips. Anyway, read on my short review about it.

Who is it for:

  1. If you have dry lips
  2. If you want to exfoliate and softens your lips

What it claims:

  1. It nourishes, heals, and sooth troubled lips
  2. It exfoliates and soften dry lips

How to use:

  1. Apply to your lips
  2. Use 1-2 times a week

My verdict:

  1. The effect – Its has sugar like crystals that helps in exfoliating lips. The scent is somewhat similar to a perfume. I can’t comment much about the effect because I’ve used it for 4 times and I don’t see much difference on my lips.
  2. Will I recommend it? – Yes. Why not? It’s an affordable lip scrub from Sephora. Just make sure you don’t overuse it. It’s not recommended to ALWAYS exfoliate. Isn’t it?

 

My Vanilla Lip Balm Review..

Do you love using organic products? Well, if yes, this one’s a must buy.

I have dry lips which made me search and buy for lip balms and creams that can help me bring back my soft lips that enables me to wear any kind of lipstick that I want. I previously used a hydrating lip balm of The Body Shop but unfortunately it’s out of stock. So I went to BHG (a department store here in Singapore) to check if there’s a good alternative that I can try.

As I start looking at the organic products I found this. A vanilla lip balm made with shea butter that promise to nourish and moisten any lip type. So I purchased one. How is it? Read and find out.

Who is it for:

  1. If you have dry lips
  2. If you love organic lip balm

What it claims:

  1. It nourishes, heals, and sooth troubled lips

How to use:

  1. Apply to your lips
  2. Use as often as necessary

My verdict:

  1. The effect – It’s a white non-glossy stick. Once applied it does not give you the glossy look and feel just like a regular lip balm or lip gloss. There’s no vanilla scent.
  2. Will I recommend it? – If you love using organic products then this is a must try. I prefer lip balms that hydrates my lips at the same time giving it a glossy look.

My Valentine’s Day..

It’s February!!! You know what that means, right?!

February is known to many as the “Love month”. This is mainly because everyone is excited to be with their loved ones to celebrate Valentine’s Day a.k.a. Hearts Day.

Flowers have started to be seen all over the places. Vendors, especially in shopping malls, have prepared their own techniques to attract people to purchase flowers, chocolates, stuffed toys, balloons, etc. There are also tons of promotions available from commercial establishments such as restaurants, beauty clinics, online shops for various products.

This is one of my favorite photos I took using my Sony NEX 3N..

 

Most of the couples around the globe started posting photos on their social media accounts, from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. I’ve seen couples from all ages hold hands as they walk. I’ve seen some men did proposals. 90% of the posts I’ve seen on February 14 which is just yesterday are about my friends getting a bouquet of flowers and chocolates, getting proposed; being showered with so much love!

I also saw funny memes about warnings for couples to avoid getting pregnant and some are for those who doesn’t have a special someone. Some “Single” ladies/men are sad, some are proud, but I’ve seen some who are happy!

As for me, it’s just a normal Tuesday. As cliche as it may sound, for me, it doesn’t need to be a special day to show our love to people we care about. Every day can be Valentine’s day. Well, I wouldn’t mind getting a flower or going on a date, but if there’s none, it’s fine with me as long as the people who love me expresses their feelings every day.

So, to everyone, let me greet you all a Happy Valentine’s Day! May all of us be showered with love because we all deserves to. Let’s also spread love and happiness to people that matter in our life. Cheers! =)
