2nd BlogNniverSary..


Oh how time flies!

Never did I imagine that I will continue blogging up to this date. 2016 has been a memorable one indeed. I’ve met such lovely people all over the world, it may not be in person but hey! chatting and interacting with you is more than enough.

I’ve had quite an amazing moments last year. Some of the highlights were, our new place, visited home and spent time with my family back in November AND I’ve guested on the December episode (19) of Cat Forsley aka MyLipAddiction.com Beauty Podcast!

Aside from that, I also discovered a good number of beauty products that I fell in love with.

I only have one criteria in choosing these products, and that is… they have been used for at least ten (10) times in the last 12 months.

It’s a lot, so let’s begin!


Skin care


Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer – Review shared HERE.

Bio-Oil Multiuse Skincare Oil – This has been mentioned in my Monthly favorites a ton.

Rodial stem cell cleansing cream – I received this in my Ipsy Glam bag back in June ‘2016 and I love it so much!

GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD Tinglexfoliate Treatment – My holy grail! this helped cleared my skin and helped prevent from having breakouts. Review shared HERE.

Facial Wipes


SIMPLE EXFOLIATING FACIAL WIPES – I cannot see myself not having this exfoliating wipes in stock. When my skin needs attention, this is my go-to product to date.

SIMPLE MICELLAR MAKEUP REMOVER WIPES – This didn’t irritate my sensitive skin, super convenient to use and it does an amazing job in removing my makeup. Reviews shared HERE.

Hair care


It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin – I’m not sure why I haven’t mentioned this product that much when this is such a wonderful miracle leave-in plus keratin hair treatment. I use this almost everyday after I wash my hair and this leaves my hair feeling soft, smooth and strong. This helps my hair free from split ends too.

PUREOLOGY Travel Size Colour Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier – I love this brand a lot. Their shampoo and conditioner were amazing (but pricey though) and this hair treatment spray protects my color treated hair, enhances my hair color and it also adds shine and vibrancy to my hair. I use just a tiny bit and I’m all set! This was featured on my Monthly Favorites back in April.

Keratherapy -Daily Smoothing Cream – Another product from Ipsy Glam bag back in June ‘2015 that I enjoyed so much! This helps my hair stay manageable and also lessen the blow drying time.

Body care


Palmer’s  Shea Formula Body Lotion – My body care routine won’t be complete without this body lotion. I am not meticulous when it comes to body care as long as I feel clean and fresh. But this lotion is everything to me! It’s very hydrating and smells really good too. Product mention in my May Favorites.

Now on to the beauty products!

  1. So sorry I missed the celebrations on the day of your blog anniversary! Happy 2nd!! I also enjoyed that you combined your favourites list in here too. 😀
    Oh I see, this is the Rimmel foundation you mentioned to me – now I recognize it. I’ve tried that concealer a long time ago and I really liked it! And I’ve been quite curious to try the Milani foundation although reviews have been mixed on it.
    And wow, look at all that PAN on the MAC Mocha blush! I can’t wait to see the day when you finish it completely!
    And oh my gosh, you listed both the Milani Earthy Elements Palette and the Too Faced PB&J Palettes – I just recently got BOTH. I can’t wait to try them out.
    And yes I agree, that CoverGirl Super Sizer is pretty great.
    So are you SURE your blog is turning 2? Not 3, or 4, or 1? LOL I’m teasing you! XD

      Hahahhh!! Now you just made me think..🤔 yes! It’s 2! I guess.. oh wait! Oh yeah it’s 2.. hahahah but yes! Majority if my faves are here.. had to narrow them down as much as I can.. yes! PB&J and Milani are both the easiest to grab when im in a rush or confused on what to wear. The foundation is def. a must have for me.. I don’t remember how many times I’ve purchased this foundation. It’s just amazing! I wanted to hit the pan on the MAC blush but at the sane time, I don’t..hehe and yay! We’ve known each other for two years now? How cool is that!! 😍😍😍

  2. You’re such a blush gal!!! By the way, a blogger friend just passed on some makeup stuff because she was clearing her stuff out and had duplicates. One of them is the Wet and Wild contour brush! Can’t believe the price considering how soft and fluffy it is!!

      I am obsessed with blushes!haha and yes! The WnW brushes are amazing.. I paid $1 for this brushes since they were sold at the Dollar Store. I have back-ups too as I thought these were Limited Edition when they first came out. 🤗
