May Favorites!

Where did the month of May go? I’m sure you’ve asked the same exact question right? Anyway, the good thing is that summer is here and May Favorites is now happening so stay tuned!

I have been very minimal last month, in other words (LAZY) haha. This might not be a very interesting post but hey! this products got me through the entire month with a smile. 🙂

Now, let’s get started.

  • 2015-08-6--18-52-10Simple Cleansing Micellar Water – At first I didn’t like it but the longer I used it, I started loving it. It cleanse really well and the best part is, it doesn’t break me out.
  • Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer – Surprise Surprise!!! What else can I say about this moisturizer?? hhmmppp.. THE BEST! ❤
  • Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation (oil free perfecting creme repairs skin with vitamin C complex, licorice root and pea extract. – I found this product in the “isle of doom” at Sephora as I was looking for a product that will help eliminate or reduce this pimple scar on my face. I’m not 100% sure if it did help but I noticed a difference on the spots so I thought to just continue using them. I just got the sample size because I was worried that it might irritate my skin, gladly this creme is very gentle and I like it. 🙂
  • Glam Glow Youthmud (Tinglexfoliate Treatment) – My Savior, a Must Have, Holy Grail. This product played a huge part on my face. Because of this, I stopped getting “sparkles”, the moment I can feel that a pimple is popping-up I dab a small amount on the spot and leave it overnight. The next morning, the monster is gone! I am so glad I found this Glam Glow Youthmud. I got the sample size again just to try it out and it lasted me for months since I don’t use this on my entire face. THIS PRODUCT IS A MIRACLE!


  • Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – you guys know what this is.. 🙂
  • MAC “BlushBaby” Sheertone Blush – This is a re-discovered product and I have been loving it ever since we met again.
  •  Maybelline “Fit Me” Pressed Powder – I’m killing this pressed powder to death. I love how it kept me shine-free all throughout the day and very very lightweight too which is good.
  • Maybelline “Fit Me” Concealer – This concealer is great in covering some unwanted scars/spots on my face. I love how it feels on my skin and most importantly, it doesn’t break me out.
  • 2015-08-6--19-01-44NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Milan – This shade is good for everyday wear, it’s matte, non-drying, smells really good (yummy) and can be worn during the day or even at night.
  • Covergirl Clump Crusher by lashblast Mascara – Another item that I’ve been reaching a lot for this past month. It’s really a clump crusher, though it’s not volumizing but they do keep the curl. It’s another product that is good for everyday wear but I don’t recommend this for night time or if you are going for a glam look.
  • Carmex Original Lip Balm – Please note that as long as you follow my posts, you will forever see this lip balm. You all know that this is another item that I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT.

Let me squeeze a non-beauty item in this post. This two items below have been my go-to footwear since Spring arrived. They are just so comfortable, easy to wear and can be paired with anything. I’ve had this items for over a year now and they still look great. The sandals are from NY&Co. while the “loafers” are from Nine West. They both have a hint of gold on them as I love gold so much. You will see me wearing these babies a lot for sure.

My Skin Care Routine!

It’s been a month since I changed my skincare routine and used products that is very convenient for everyone to find. Most of these products can be found in your local drugstores and is very affordable too.

Since I used the Simple Skin Care Products, I’ve noticed a huge difference on my face and especially on my pimples. I can assure you all that these products are awesome and they are very gentle on any skin types.

First, I start my morning with the Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash.

Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash thoroughly cleanses your skin, removing oil, dirt, and other impurities.

  • 100% soap free wash leaves skin cleansed and revived
  • With added Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E; Contains skin-loving Bisabolol
  • Suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin
  • No Dyes, No Artificial Perfumes and No Harsh Irritants that can upset your skin

Then followed with the Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub.

  • Gently exfoliates and cleans skin
  • Brightens and evens skin texture

Next, to keep my skin soft and smooth I apply the Simple Protecting Light Moisturizer.  I use this before I apply my concealer or my foundation. It helps dehydrate my skin and makes my makeup look flawless too.

  • 2 vitamins: pro-vitamin B5, vitamin E
  • No harsh irritants that can upset your skin

As soon as I arrived home from work or after wearing any makeup on, I always use the Simple Facial Cleansing Wipes. This wipes is tough on make-up and gentle on skin. And to make it even cleaner. I use the Simple Micellar Cleanser Water, and yes! they do a great job in removing all makeup and dirt.

Now, let’s talk about a non-Simple Skin Care products.

I bought Ole HenriksenSheer Transformation in their sample size to hopefully clear some of the pimple marks on my face. I am not sure if they are working great but I did notice some changes on my skin or shall I say on my pimple marks.

Research results:
In a consumer use study on 52 respondents:
– 96% said the product softens skin and smooths uneven texture
– 95% said their skin looks brighter and more radiant
– 86% said that product treats discoloration/hyperpigmentation

My pimple savior… ❤

I bought the GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD™ TINGLEXFOLIATE TREATMENT because I heard so many people talking about this product. While I was at Sephora over a month ago, this sample size GlamGlow Youthmud caught my attention.

A lady from Sephora recommended it as well. Instead of using this product all over my face, I’ve decided to just use this only on my pimple. Guess what? it cured some of my sparkles for sure. My right cheek is now pimple free, though you can still see some marks but I’ll take it rather than seeing a huge ugly looking red monster that sparkles all over.

Now, before I go to bed and after cleaning my face with my Simple products, I just dab a tiny amount of this product on my pimples and let it stay overnight. I am not sure if this is even advisable but it works for me.. what can we do?? 😛

This mud mask leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing. It works with the body’s natural moisturizing collagen to provide gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer. While providing tighter skin texture and tighter pores, it provides a more youthful appearance and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils.

Research results:
Based on consumer trials:
After 1 day of use:
– 97% agreed it left their skin smoother, brighter, and softer
– 91% agreed it brightened their dull skin
– 94% agreed it provided gentle surface exfoliation

After using it 3 times during a 7-day period:
– 100% agreed it brightened their dull skin
– 97% agreed it provided gentle surface exfoliation

So yeah! there you go.. 🙂
