Pure Water Facial mist from TheFaceShop

http://twitter.com/shanen10/status/315482135454691328/photo/1

I am going to Legaspi this summer and I can't bring my Evian facial spray since it's an aerosole and that is prohibited in the plane.  So I went to The Face Shop in ATC Mall in Alabang and got this Pure Water Facial Mist Jeju Marine for only 250 pesos- it is way cheaper than Evian. I just hope it will not break me out after several use.  Well I definitely trust Korean brands since they are very particular on their skin.  I have a terrible oily skin but I don't break out often though.  I know that mist is very important especially during summer to keep our face hydrated.

I will definitely update this if I am satisfied with this product.

What it says:
A spray type toner leeping the skin refreshed and moisturized with Jeju Samdasoo water and Jeju gulfweed extract

Makeup by Sephora Collection

I love the Sephora Collection- primer, wrinkle filler, mist and powder foundation.  It's a bit expensive in Singapore though. 

The primer- fills in wrinkles/ it gives a nice glow unto my face.  I use this primer when I go out at night because it's good with lights

The Wrinkle filler- I use this after my usual moisturizer and before I prime my face.  I love it because it hides my wrinkle between my brows- my frown line.  grrrr I really hate this sign of aging... What I dont like about it, is that it hides my wrinkle for just 4-6 hours.  

The Mist- I use this after Im done with my make up to give it a natural glow.

The powder foundation- I love it since I can just wear it alone and it doesnt look powdery or grayish in photos.  I have exact match D35 but I have oily skin, so it oxidizes after few hours.

Overall, I love Sephora line- I just hope they have a branch in Manila.

Oil Mattifier by Mary Kay

I have oily skin and this is my problem ever since.  I bought primers because I thought it will decrease my oil factory hahahahah unfortunately, it didn't.  I saw Mary Kay's oil mattifier for only 580 php and I gave it a try!  I grabbed one and tried it, I put it on after my moisturizer and before my foundation and concealer.  I didn't put powder or blot for more than 8 hours!  Miraculously, it worked for me.  I didnt get any skin irritations as well.  I love it and you should try it if you have oily/combination skin.

Etude House Sunblock

Since it's Summer, I decided to get sunblock from etude house with high spf as 50+, it costs 398 php only.  I think it's really great since it has high spf which I badly need since this summer summer is ridiculously hot.  It is also for face and body.  I only use this when I go out in the morning, noon or afternoon- as long as there's still sun hehehhe :)  I didnt get any rashes or any skin irritations with this.

Thumbs up Etude!

Pagudpud Tour

I woke up as early as 6am and grabbed the complimentary breakfast and took a tryc to Pagudpud bus terminal for only 10 php.  The bus ride costs less than 100 php, we left at 8:45 am since we waited for other passengers.  After 2 hours, we arrived at Pagudpud and met the tryc driver.  I told him to tour me around for north and south Pagudpud Tour.  It was raining but I didn't bother so we continued our trip - first was North Pagudpud Tour (600 php)
1- Patapat Viaduct

2- Paraiso ni Anton

3- Kabigan Falls

3- Timmangtang Rock Formation

4- Bantay Abot Cave

5- Maira-Ira Beach or Blue Lagoon
I didn't enjoy the beach because of the strong wind and rain due to Monsoon. 


After the tour, we headed back to Polaris Resort where we stayed for a night.  I honestly didnt like my stay there because the same night, there was a group of men on the other room and was shouting, laughing and drinking all night.  (I told the people in charge at the restaurant the following morning and they said that they couldn't sleep too...) I was really scared that night thinking they might crashed into my rooma nd do something really bad.  God is so good, He didn't allow that to happen!

I left early morning and waited for the same driver who will tour me around the
South of Pagudpud. (600 php)

1- Bagui Windmill

2- Kapurpurawan Rock Formation

3- Cape Bojeador

Note:  You can't tour around by commuting.  There are trycs that offer fixed rate 600php for North PAgudpud Tour and another 600 for South Pagudpud Tour.  Keep in  mind that when you travel, you are willing to pay the agreed/fixed amount by the local government.  Please don't haggle since the places are too far and the amount you're supposed to pay is just enough for the gas alone.  I always pay extra as a Thank You to the driver- I always think that I'm still fortunate and I should share my blessings to others.
Driver: Kuya Marlon - 09302845897
