Skin Care Review: The Body Shop's Tea Tree Skin Clearing facial Wash

Hi everyone! Today I'm going to do a review about The Body Shop's Tea Tree oil Facial Wash. This is my facial wash since 3rd year college. When I was in College I started to break out due to stress from school works and duty. It really bothered me that I was badly breaking out on my forehead area. So I was on a hunt for a perfect cleanser then I stumbled upon this product. 

I used this product for 1 year straight and it really helped me to not break out. I used this together with their Toner, Moisturizer, and the Tea Tree Oil.   

Aqua, Glycerin, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, PEG-120 methyl Glucose Dioleate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Polysorbate 20, Alcohol Denat, Panthenol, Melaleuca Altemifoila Leaf Oil, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil, Allantoin, Citric Acid, p-Anisic Acid, Benzophenone-4, Menthol, Sodium Hydroxide, Butyl Methoxydibenzolymethane, Limonene, Leptospermum Petersonil Oil, t-Butyl Alcohol, Denatonium Benzoate, Tocopherol, Caramel, Cl 19140, Cl 42090. 

  •  Does not dry out my skin 
  • Has a cooling effect after washing the face which feels refreshing
  • Helps minimize breakouts 
  • Totally cleans up my face 
  • Has a reasonable price (500++ I think.) 
  • It has a strong smell  
Where to Purchase: 
  • Available in all The Body Shop stores nationwide.  

I hope this review helps you if you are planning to buy this cleanser. :) I cannot guarantee you that it will work on you because we all know that not all product works on the same skin type.  
That's all for now.  
'Til my next blog. :)

Summer 2013: A Trip to Vigan (Day 2 and 3)

My second day in Vigan was really the gist of our trip. This was the day that we went all over Vigan. First, we went to Bantayan Bell Tower, Baluarte, Hidden Garden, Syquia Mansion, Burgos Museum and Crisologo Museum.

Vigan mostly has museums, due to its rich history. So Our over all trip was mostly museum visits. I don't mind that because it helped me appreciate how rich our country's history is. So here are some pictures to summarize my trip to Vigan. :)

Food Trippin': Coffee Break

Hi Everyone! It's been a while since my last post. I was busy lately and preoccupied with finding a hospital for me to apply or train on. Anyways, This coffee shop is located in Calle Crisologo, Vigan. My cousin and I use to chill here whenever we have spare time during our trip to Vigan. I am a certified coffee lover so anywhere there is coffee, I am there. hahaha.

What a cute display.

Pictures of their customers.

Their freedom wall. You can post anything you want. :)

The place is very cozy. :)

Banana Toffee Nut

Black Forest

Choco Macadamia Nut


The prices of the coffee are really affordable. It ranges from P40-140. Their best sellers are Choco Macadamia Nut, Cookies and Cream, Black Forest, and Mocha Mint.  A must try in there is Rice coffee, Tsokolate, and Soya coffee. Sadly, I did not try any of the three. :(  i hope you try them and tell me how they taste. :) They offer food like pesto pasta, corned beef pandesal, and many more choices. The don't offer cakes though. When we were there they only offer bibingka and braso de mercedes. 

Overall, the coffee was okay. It's not starbucks good but I still recommend you to try their coffee if you go to Vigan. :)

Summer 2013: A trip to Vigan (Day 1)

It's been weeks since my last post. I was busy ( i think?) hahahaha. My uncle, auntie, cousin and I went to Vigan for vacation. I was lucky because my Aunt asked me to come with them. It was really a family vacation but the let me tag along with them.The trip going to Vigan from Manila was 10 hours. My butt really aches for sitting that long.  It was a 3 days 2 night stay. We left Manila at 4:00 in the morning of April 5. We arrived at Vigan at 3:00 pm. We stayed at Cordillera Inn. It is located along Calle Crisologo which makes it very convenient for walking around. Many souvenir shops nearby, walking distance to restaurants and fast food.

Make-up Review: Fairydrops Volume Burst Waterproof Mascara

I just heard about fairy drops recently from my friend. She was really raving about this brand so I was curious to try this mascara but I don't really splurge on mascara, so I was really lucky to have won this mascara on Liz's Project Vanity Event.  
How much? 
Php 950 

Where to Purchase? 
Available in all Beauty Bar stores nationwide or you can visit

Directions on removing the product and Some friendly reminders. :)
The ingredients of the product  
Without Mascara

With Mascara (1 Coating)


With Mascara (2 Coatings)
  • The packaging is really cute. :) 
  • It really defines my eyelashes. 
  • Water proof, tear proof, sweat proof.  
  • Smudge proof
  • Lightweight feeling. Its like not wearing a mascara. :) 
  • I can use it even without curling my lashes.
  • It's a bit pricey.  
  • If you are lazy on removing mascara, this is not a product for you. You need to use an eye make-up remover or a cleansing oil to remove this. A simple soap-water ritual can't remove this mascara.
I was using this product for about 2 weeks now, and I was really satisfied. I am thinking of buying again when I finish this one. I am also thinking of trying the Fairy Drops Platinum Waterproof Mascara

I suggest that you try this mascara. It really delivers and I like it.

Till my next blog. Byerrssss. :)
