Watsons Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Tape


Watsons Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Tape




                      Watsons Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Tape is used to remove blackheads. One box contains 10 sheets of pore tape .It was made in Korea. The storage period is three years.



                      I bought Watsons Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Tape hoping that it would remove a lot of my blackheads and whiteheads. I was easily attracted to it because it was cheaper than the one I used to remove my blackheads and whiteheads. It was also easier for me because it was on tape that I don't have to apply it like a mask made of cream which would be messy. But I got it wrong because with its fixed shape of the nose it did not cover some of the areas where my unwanted blackheads and whiteheads are prone. After I consume the 10 sheets of nose tape, I would use again the mask that is made of cream which was more effective in removing my blackheads.




Directions:

Wash and clean the nose area then wet it to adhere the tape to the nose. Remove the nose tape from the plastic then apply it by pressing it firmly in the nose. Leave pore tape for 10-15 minutes then remove it and rinse nose with water to remove the residue of nose tape.


Caution:

 Avoid using on broken, damaged or sensitive skin. Avoid prolonged use. Keep away from children.
Don't leave the nose tape too long because some parts of the nose tape would stick to the nose when you pull it out. ( I've tried it two times ). 

Ingredients:

VP/VA Copolymer, Aqua ( Water ), Silica, Dimethicone, Polysorbate 60, Titanium Dioxide, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Camelia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Hamamelis Virfiniana ( Witch Hazel ) Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate Tocopheryl Acetate

What I like about Watsons Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Tape:

It is easy to use.

It removes some whiteheads.
It's not that messy.

What I don’t like about Watsons Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Tape:

It doesn’t remove the blackheads fully. 
There's a residue left after removing the nose pore tape. 
It does not cover all of the areas where the blackheads are prone.

Silk Secrets One Minute Hot Oil Treatment

Silk Secrets One Minute Hot Oil Treatment


                     Silk Secrets One Minute Hot Oil Treatment claims to moisturize, revitalize and refresh hair while adding shine to hair after a minute of application. It can be bought on Watsons.


                         I've got my hair rebonded and I needed to condition it but the one minute hot oil treatment that I'm used to was not available so I bought Silk Secret One Minute Hot Oil Treatment. It made my hair soft and smell good but caused my hair to fly away and wave. I didn't really like that effect on me because the other hot oil treatment that I've used retains my straight hair. 

Directions:

Shampoo hair and apply Silk Secret One Minute Hot Oil Treatment thoroughly. Massage hair and leave it on hair for one minute then rinse. It can be used daily.

Ingredients:

Water, Steartrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Amodimethicone, Cyclotetrasiloxane (and) Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Fragrance Aloe Vera, Trideceth-12, Methylparaben, Cetrimonium Chloride, Propylparaben, Magnesium Nitrate, Lactic Acid, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Magnesium Chloride, Methylisothiazolinone, Ascorbic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate

What I like about Silk Secrets One Minute Hot Oil Treatment:

It contains Aloe Vera, vitamin E and C.
It smells good.
It makes my hair softer.
It is sealed with a foil.
It is easy to use. 

What I don't like about Silk Secrets One Minute Hot Oil Treatment:

It made my hair fly away and wave.

Vitress Hair Polish Sun Protect

Vitress Hair Polish Sun Protect



                         Vitress Hair Polish Sun Protect helps in protecting the hair from UV rays and making the hair smooth and look shiny. It also aids in removing the frizzes of the hair. I bought this in Mercury Drugstore worth 50Php. It is available in 50ml and 100ml tubes. There are also other variants of Vitress Hair Polish such as long lasting fragrance and strengthening. 

                     Now, I no longer worry if my hair is in such a mess. It really makes my hair softer and manageable. I can style my hair whatever I want which I usually use to put volume on my hair. My hair doesn't look dry anymore. I always apply a small amount of Vitress on my hair whenever my hair blower is not available and when I'm prepping at school because it takes me longer to style my hair if I put so much Vitress. After applying Vitress, the hair will stick to each other like hair gels or wax but unlike these products, it will not be stiff after you style or brush your hair. It will be soft when the hair polish is finally dried up.

Ingredients:

Aqua, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Alcohol Denat, Fragrance, Carbomer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Panthenol, Phytantriol, Propylene Glycol, Bioflavonoids, Hydrolyzed Adansonia Digitata Extract, Dextrin, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Tetrasodium EDTA

What I like about Vitress Hair Polish Sun Protect:

It smells good.
It gets rids of the frizzes.
It makes the hair look shiny.
It lasts longer.
It is non-greasy.
It is affordable.

What I don't like about Vitress Hair Polish Sun Protect:

None.

YSA Skin Care Center Review




YSA Skin Care Center Review


My mom and I decided to treat my acne. It was only mildly but because it was my first time, we went to skin care centers with dermatologists. The first clinic we went became unappealing to me because the receptionist ( I guess one who gives facials because she was wearing medical scrubs) was unpleasant and her face has many acne. The dermatologist was not around and it was already in the afternoon so we went to the YSA. 

We waited for long hours for the dermatologist to come and I still insisted to my mom that we should wait because a lot of people keep on entering for their services such as cleaning and chemical peel and products like Erythromycin. The dermatologist didn't come that day so we just asked them what to do with my acne and they suggested a cleaning. 

They asked me to wash my face in the washing area where their liquid soap product and tissue were provided. The one who was going to do the cleaning applied something in my face, placed a tissue on my eyes and placed the steamer beside my face. She went out for a while and went back to put a face mask on my face. After a few minutes, she removed the mask and started to prick and get the dirt out. She used a machine and started to massage my face with it ( I don't know what that really was) after pricking. Then she applied Erythromycin on my face and took me to another room where I have to face a fan. ( I guess to let my face cool so that my pores would close )

After that, I asked them if what should I use to maintain not having pimples and they recommended the Erythromycin and Acne Lotion Mild. They told me to use only the Erythromycin for that day and wash my face and use the Acne Lotion Mild the next day. I also bought their YSA Botanica Green Papaya.

I went back after a week and had my face cleaned again. I really liked the one who has done the cleaning this time because she was very patient. I paid 560Php for my second cleaning compared to the 600Php+ because it was my first to their skin care center.

( Left - Acne Lotion Mild ; Right - Erythromycin Lotion )


What I like about the YSA Skin Care Center ( Festival Branch ): 

They don't force to sell their products. 
The center smells good. 
Their Erythromycin and acne lotion mild products are effective.
Their service is good but it really depends on who will do the service for you. 


What I don't like about the YSA Skin Care Center ( Festival Branch ):


The washing area is dirty. 
The area is too small to accommodate many customers.

Cyleina Black Pearl


Cyleina Black Pearl



         I bought the Cyleina Black Pearl mini for testing which is also recommended by some of my friends. At my first use, I felt a cooling sensation on my skin and red small bumps started to appear. I don't know if it was an allergy or the first effect but the red small bumps disappeared after a few days. Whenever I use it, I feel a cooling sensation where I have applied it. Some of the dark areas in my skin whitened but it progresses slowly so I'm going back to my old soap which is Diamond Orange Peel with L-Glutathione. 

          The Cyleina Black Pearl mini is worth 65Php which is 45g and the bigger is worth 125Php which is 100g. It is made in the Philippines. It can be bought at supermarkets and Watsons.

            At the back portion of the box, it states that Cyleina Black Pearl is inspired by the rare beauty of South Sea black pearls, Cyleina gives your skin a luminous clarity using premium skin enhancing ingredient such as:

Collagen which promotes a smooth, radiant firm and well hydrated skin.

Licorice has anti-bacterial and natural skin whitening complex

Alpha Arbutin gently exfoliates dead skin cells and inhibits melanin production.

Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant with excellent moisturizing properties.

Ingredients:

Glycerine, Distilled Water, Myristic Acid, Marine Collagen, Licorice, Alpha Arbutin, Peppermint Essential Oil, Vitamin E

What I like about Cyleina Black Pearl:

It is effective in whitening the skin.
It doesn't melt fast.
It smells good.

What I don't like about Cyleina Black Pearl:

None.

Shine Moist Henna Wax Color Treatment



Shine Moist Henna Wax Color Treatment



                      I used to go to salons for cellophane treatment which is worth 400Php and up. Now, I’m very thankful that I saw Shine Moist Henna Wax Color Treatment in Hortaleza because some of the salons I went to uses this. I bought the medium brown color of Shine Moist Henna Wax which is 100ml worth 185Php. One box contains the Shine Moist Henna Wax Color Treatment, pair of plastic gloves and a plastic cap. It is also available in HBC.



               Available colors are black, dark brown, brown, magenta, cyclamen, medium blonde, ruby, natural, golden brown, light golden blonde, magenta red, red blonde, chestnut brown, chocolate brown, medium brown, burgundy red, chocolate red and orange red.

( Medium Brown color )

                   This is what is written at the back portion of the box: Shine Moist Henna Wax Color Treatment is especially designed for dull and damaged hair with its unique formula which is competent to penetrate deeply with protecting the cuticular layer of hair while the color treatment is processing. Exclusive natural color treatment and rich protein bond ingredients helps give nutrition, leaves hair exceptionally soft plus natural color looking.

Note: Try a skin allergy test before using Shine Moist Henna Wax Color Treatment.
Wear dark clothing or use any protective coat to avoid stains from the Henna Wax Color Treatment.

Directions:

  1.    Shampoo and towel dry hair to 75% dry.
  2.    Apply color treatment beginning 3 mm from scalp and comb through the hair thoroughly.
  3.    Keep hair moistened and heated with a steamer or heater for 30 minutes.
  4.      Allow hair to cool for 5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly until the water runs clear.
  5.     Squeeze out excess water and apply conditioning rinse and leave it in the hair for at least 1 minute.
  6.    Rinse thoroughly with water, blow dry and style.



What I did:

                    I followed the first and second directions from the box. I left Shine Moist Henna Wax in my hair with the plastic cap they’ve provided for almost 45 minutes because I don’t have a steamer or heater. I removed the plastic cap and let my hair cool for 5 minutes and then rinsed it with water. After that, I followed the fifth and sixth directions.

                    It’s not a permanent color so I don’t expect it to last long. It still makes my hair look good and shiny so I’ll definitely buy another set. It’s quite messy when applying the Henna Wax Color Treatment but I’ll get used to it. (It’s unavoidable Hehe)


What I like about Shine Moist Henna Wax Color Treatment:

It is affordable.
One box provides plastic gloves and cap. (I don’t know if the 500ml comes with plastic gloves and cap.)
It makes my hair shiny.
It smells good.

Ever Bilena Advance Make-Up Remover

                                 


                      Ever Bilena Advance Make-Up Remover is used to remove make-up specifically for the eyes and lips easily. I bought this in Watsons which is 80ml worth 95Php. It was made in China.

                  The container was horrible. The liquid always spills on the container whenever I soak it on the cotton. I accidentally wiped the cotton into my eyes once. It was really painful so I washed my eyes (hehehe..I’m so clumsy). Nothing serious happened. 


                        This was my first make-up remover and I’m not satisfied with it so I’m going to find another that is better but also affordable. 

Ingredients:

Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Isohexadecane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Propylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Tetrasodium Edta, Dipotassium Phosphate, Potassium Phosphate, Sodium Chloride, Tocopheryl Acetate, Benzyl Alcohol, 2-Phenoxyethanol, C 42090

Directions:

Shake Ever Bilena Advance Make-Up Remover and soak it with cotton then apply it to eyes and lips.

What I like about Ever Bilena Advance Make-Up Remover:

It is cheap.

What I don’t like about Ever Bilena Advance Make-Up Remover:

It stings in the eyes whenever I use it around the eyes.
It doesn’t remove make up easily.
It is oily.
It is messy.
