The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub

Another thing I learned is that, your facial wash is not enough to clean your face. You still have to use another product to fully cleanse your face. And for that, I honestly recommend you The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub. It is a facial scrub used to exfoliate your face.

All kind of facial scrub is better to use two times a week. Usually it has tiny stones or product used to exfoliate your skin so it is better not to use it daily to prevent it from damaging your skin. 

For a short story, I remember when I already consumed all my facial wash and I was not able to buy a new one that time, I tried using The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub daily. Yes, I tried it daily and thankfully because of its ingredients, it did not damage my skin. I just had to do that less than a week because of course, any exfoliating product or facial scrub is better to use two times a week.

It is a facial scrub product used to exfoliate and remove the dead cells in your face. You may see that they are claiming that it is a daily facial exfoliator and as what I experienced and told above, it will not damage your skin but still, better just use it two times a week to prevent any problem.

My Skin Care Routine

I was too young when I started to love makeups. I still do remember buying a cheap lip gloss in the shop in front of our school. And how many times I asked my big sister to buy my first eye shadow pallet.

I was in fourth grade when we found a cosmetic shop, HBC to be exact, that sells makeups for younger age. I had my first eyeshadow pallet that had three colors in it: blue, pink and violet. I felt so professional every time I use it. 

Time flies so fast, and little did I know, I was slowly destroying my face. It was only 2017 when I decided to invest in skin care products. I was so surprised knowing the price for each product but I am still thankful that I learned how important they are. 

Many will ask why beauty gurus have that perfect skin, and yes, that is because they invest in their skin care. It is important to remove all kind of products in our face, keep it hydrated and bacteria free. So now, I will show you the product I use for my skin care routine. 

My Skin Care Routine

SparkElle Pretty in Pink Soap
I love washing my face with this soap. It leaves my face so soft and it promises an acne free face that I dreamt of. I use this three times a day: during morning when I wake up, when I take a bath and lastly before I sleep. 

You can read in My Everyday Makeup Routine that I do not usually put heavy make ups. So by this soap, it really cleanses my face without worrying that some make up products or dirt are still on my face.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub
Facial scrub are indeed important but take note that you cannot use it everyday. I usually use The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub only two times a week. Specially when I feel bumps on my face. But thankfully, thanks to SparkElle Pretty in Pink Soap, it lessen the possibility to have bumps but I still use The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub two times a week to keep my face smooth and soft.

It is a good facial scrub because it does not dry out my face and it keeps my face soft.

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream
Even we use products that make our skin so soft and smooth, it is a must to use a moisturising cream to keep and face hydrated. And The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream is perfect for that. I use this product every time I finish washing my face to keep it smooth. 

You can read that it is a day cream but do not worry, you can use it as well during night to keep your face moisturised and hydrated and it will save you a lot of money.

Vaseline Lip Therapy
I love using  Vaseline Lip Therapy after washing my face so whenever a lip product left on my lips, Vaseline Lip Therapy is able to remove it for me and leave my lips so smooth again. No more dry and cracked lips!

It is a relief to remove and feel fresh again after a long day with makeup. Let us not forget how important our face is and how important we take care of it. 

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Secret For Acne Free Face

Most of us are suffering from acne. It is because of hormonal imbalance, sleepless nights, stress and bacteria. And to be honest, it becomes one of my great problems. It is normal to have pimples and it changes every time people notice it. So it causes to lower our self confidence.

Just like you, I tried different products that they say will remove my acne. I spend a lot of money but nothing changes. My pimples keep of coming out. There was a time when I stopped using any products and kept on my facial wash but still the same. 

I felt hopeless until my sister recommended a facial soap that helped her face. I tried and I am amazed that it worked on me. 

Pretty in Pink Soap by SparkElle

SparkElle is an online shop that sells beauty products. They have different products such as beauty and skin care products that you will surely love for they are all affordable.

Pretty in Pink Soap is a facial soap for camera ready, glowing and more radiant skin achieved. 


SparkElle sells this product for only 50 php. Yes, that is too cheap for a product like this. Another thing is, it takes time to  melt so you can use it for a longer time that usual.


The Pretty in Pink Soap by SparkElle is FDA approved so there is no reason to worry. It contains Glutathione, Goat´s Milk, Alpha Arbutin, Baking Soda, Lemon Extract, Virgin Coconut Oil, Tomato Extract, Snail and Avocado.

How To Use It
  1. It is a big soap that usual so I usually divide it into two
  2. Apply water on it and apply it just like a normal bar soap into your face
  3. Massage your face carefully
  4. Rinse your face

What I Like

I really love how it solves my acne problem. I can say that it is the only product that removes my pimples. And yes it removes, not just prevent, but removes! Other facial products or  anti acne product usually prevents your pimple to come out. Or most of them dries the pimple for you but after few days, pimples keep on coming out. But for this product, it removes your acne and promise you to keep your face soft and clear.

It is made of natural ingredients and whenever I apply it, my face feels so soft and it does not make my skin dry.

Another thing I like is it is too cheap and it melts so slow. I am using my own The Pretty in Pink soap, I divided it into 2 but it has been a month but I am still using its half.

What I Dislike

I felt weird when it takes time for it to melt. I swear, it really is. So I had to put it where I am sure that it is clean because I am kinda afraid that it has a lot of bacteria inside of it. But I think that is just psychological.

Is It Worthy?

Of course it is! It is so cheap and it really works. There is no reason not to buy it.

Where to buy it

Nichido Eye Pencil For My Eyebrows

Hi gorgeous! Another blog for you. We all know that eyebrows on fleek are indeed on trend rights now and you might ask what product I am using to achieve my kilay goal. So now I am going to reveal it for you.

It is already obvious in the picture, and yes, I am using the Eye Pencil of Nichido Cosmetics. And I just noticed right now by writing this blog that I am using an eye pencil and not an eyebrow pencil. But do not worry for I am already using this product for 3 years.

I already tried different types of product for my eyebrows such as pencil, liquid, gel. And after trying those product, I finally found the one. And I will always go back to this.

Nichido Eye Pencil Dark Brown

Have an eyebrows on fleek is a little bit. People invest for expensive products and we all keep on trying different brands and products to find our the one.
Nichido Cosmetic is a brand originally from Japan and it is well known for its cheap prices cosmetics. They also have variety of cosmetics and they really recommendable for beginners.


The Nichido Eye Pencil will only cost you 75 php. Yes, it is that cheap. I tried their eyebrow pencil that cost me 125 php and I am telling, I keep going back to their eye pencil. It is indeed cheap so it is worthy to try.


Because it is an eye pencil, its texture is similar to a gel type. And we know that gel type products for our eyebrows are way expensive that pencil ones.

How To Use It 

  1. First of all, I do not apply it directly to my eyebrows for it may looks so dark.
  2. I am using a brush to apply it. You can try different type of brush but it is better if it is soft so you can easily adjust to it.
  3.  Use your brush and get the product from the eye pencil. I like it more when I swipe the sides of the brush to its ink. 
  4.  You can now apply it to your eyebrows. First, make a line to your lower eyebrows then on its upper and fill your brows.
  5. You can use an eyebrow mascara to keep your brows on their place 

What I like

For an eyebrow product that only cost 75 php, it is indeed something. I like how it works like an eyebrow gel without spending too much. 

What I Dislike

You can see on its pen that it says it is a waterproof, it is not. During summer season, you really need to re apply for it is easy to get removed.

Is It Worthy?

It is really worthy! The price, how it works, is really worthy. It is not only for beginners but for all make up lovers.

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream

As I said to my previous blog, Why You Should Start Moisturizing, ¨the key for a perfect make up is a perfect skin¨. And to achieve a baby soft perfect skin is a combination of various skin care products. 

Being a human, I really advice people to have a skin care routine. It is not only for women but also for men. Not only for those who wear make up, but for everyone. We should take care of our face as it is what we show first when we interact with other people.

What I like about The Body Shop is they have a variety of skin care products, make ups, etc., for all type of skin. And they are all cruelty free and made of natural ingredients. So you do not have to worry for they have the answer for all your worries. 

One of their product that I really love is The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream that is good for sensitive skin like me. People may keep on trying different products but just others, what is good for their skin may not be good for me and vice versa. So I really choose wise on products that I would be trying. Thankfully The Body Shop offers something that is really good for sensitive skin. 

                     Aloe Soothing Day Cream

Use this gentle moisturizer to help calm sensitive and dry skin. Formulated without fragrance, color, preservatives and alcohol, this is the perfect choice for sensitive skin. -The Body Shop

Living in a country that has 4 sessions is really hard. You need to adjust your skin care products every season for it may not be good for all these seasons. And winter is indeed my enemy. My face gets really dry that I cannot help and it always causes pimples on it. But thanks to Aloe Soothing Day Cream, I do not have to worry anymore for it moisturizes my face at its best. 


¨Formulated for sensitive skin¨

As I said before, I have a sensitive skin that whenever I try some products, even if it is for anti acne, I keep getting pimples. But by this product, I never had an issue.


Aloe Vera

Within the tough, rubbery exterior of the aloe plant, lies a soft center that gives our products a naturally soothing power. A natural survivor, the aloe plant manages to thrive in the harshest terrains.

18€ / 50 ml

Seeing the price, I can say it is indeed expensive. And maybe you would ask me why I am still using it. I have a very sensitive skin, and it has been years since I got an acne problem. So because of those issues, I won´t mind spending a little bit for my face if it helps me from my issues. 

If you do not have a sensitive skin or acne problem, you can try other moisturizing cream that are more cheaper than this. But I am telling you, you should be aware of cheap products for it may distroy your face.

How To Use It

1.Wash your face, put everything you need such as toner. 
2.Get you The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream and apply it directly to your face
3.Let it dry
4.After it dries, you can now put your make up
In the product itself says that it is a day cream, but if you want to save money, you can also use it as a night cream. 

What I Like

I really like how it moisturizes my skin at its best. And I can also use it as my night cream without spending too much.

What I Dislike

Of course, its price. It is really expensive for me . But I know, the price is worthy.

Is It Worthy?  

It is really worthy specially if you have a sensitive skin and acne problem. But if you don´t, you can try other cheaper moisturizing cream.

You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you

Sleek Matte Me Liquid Lipstick

It has already been years since liquid / matte lipstick became on trend. Of course, girls like me who are obsessed with make ups will definitely try them out! I tried variety of liquid lipstick, expensive and affordable ones. After trying a lot, I finaly found the one! And it´s already been almost 2 years since I am using it and I am not thinking of changing.

Sleek Matte Me Liquid Lipstick

Matte Me is a matte finish liquid lipstick that glides on in one smooth application, with no need for a second coat. The light as air texture provides you with comfortable wear for hours, that does not cake, flake or dry out, ensuring long lasting colour all day. -Sleek Official Website

I remember 2016 when a lot of youtubers became obsessed with this liquid matte lipstick, you might already watch a lot of reviews about it. One of its best seller is the Sleek Matte Me Birthday Suit. You know it is the best when you try to buy it and it is always sold out!


6,49€ / 6 ml

Here in Spain, you can buy your sleek matte me for 6,49€. You can buy it at Primor, a cosmetic store in Spain. Compared to other matte lipstick I tried, this one is already affordable and you already have a lot of variety of shades.


  1. Before applying it, better to prep your lips. What I use is Vaseline Lip Theraphy.
  2. After letting the Vaseline dries, you can now apply the Sleek Matte Me Liquid Lipstick. Try to apply it first on your lower lip then on your upper lip  by filling them.
  3. Let them dry without touching your upper to your lower lip
What I like about it is you do not have to reapply just to see its color. It is too pigmented and it will save you a lot product.

Matte Lipsticks are known for making your lips too dry or making you feel like it is too heavy. 

But with Sleek Matte Lipstick, it is really different. Maybe it is a little bit dry but not to the point that it will leave your lips too dry after removing it. It will also not let your lips crack. 

It is also light weight so it will not bother you. It feels like your lips but bette!


It is indeed durable! The only time you need to reapply is after you eat specially if you eat something oily. If you are in your work or on an event, you can fully trust this liquid lipstick and it will not let you down.

What I like

I like it being so pigmented, by that, I do not have to re-purchase every now or then and I save a lot of money. It doesnt make my lips to dry and it doesnt crack compare to other lip product. 

You may think that it is impossible. But just like any make up product, you always need something to take care of you face and lips to keep them at their best condition.

What I dislike

Their shade! They are really hard to match with your type of make up or with your outfit. But we do not have to worry because they have the birthday suit and bittersweet that we can use in our everyday make up.

Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
