Kikay Finds: The Face Shop WaterProof AutoLiner and Gel EyeLiner

What part of your body is your best asset? Mine is my eyes and nope! it’s not a self-proclaimed. Most people says that they love my eyes most especially when I don’t wear my eye-glasses and it get dolled up. They say that my eyes are so expressive (maybe because it’s big!). If some women can’t leave their house without their brows, well in my case I can’t leave the house without my eye liner!

Kikay Finds: The Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil

Hello everyone! My goodness, I haven’t updated this blog since last week. A lot of things have made me busy lately– Christmas parties, project deadlines (work!work!work!), family(as always and forever!), dance rehearsal for the Christmas presentation, household chores, and A LOT more! Oh and did I mention that I haven’t started buying Christmas gifts?! Shocks! Could you imagine what’s the date today?! Oh-My-Gulay to the highest and maximum level talaga! Nakakaloka!!! Gusto kong mag-cartwheel! Mas busy pa ata ako sa busy bee! Tee hee! I need to do a lot of catch up here, ladies and gentlemen so please bear with me! There are thousands of things that I wanted to share with you but I have so little time to share it. Alright, so I guess a beauty review is a nice starter and (hopefully) will bring me back into the blogging world.

******

I soo love this season and I bet you too! But there’s one thing I hate about the Christmas season– it’s my driest skin season eveerrr! As in! Just two weeks ago, I’ve been battling with my dry skin especially on my face (it’s disgusting, I tell ya), I’ve tried lotsa moisturizer but nothings working! I felt so bad because my face looked like I had an-an, as in! Super nagbabalat talaga siya, kulang nalang peeler kumpleto na! But of course kawawa naman ang peslak ko kung gagamitan ko ng peeler diba?! So there.. my battle begun. I’ve recently been loving the Moringa scent and so the beautifying oil I chose was in Moringa. The beautifying oils are dry oils which can be used on face, body, and hair which are meant to moisturise, smooth, and illuminate. I usually use this oil on my hair and body, I tried using it on my face before but my face got irritated so I stopped using it. However just a few weeks ago, I felt that I had no choice and so I gave it another shot, surprisingly it works! In less than a week it it brings back the moisture of my super-duper-uber-mega-dry-face! I used to apply it every night before bed time and viola! I wake up in the morning with a supple, smooth, and moisturised face in the morning! It was fantastic because in less than one week I saw the effect in my face! It’s not advisable for those who have oily skin because it will make your skin more oily since it’s an oil based.

The Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil

If you’re not into this particular scent there’s a ton of other scent to choose from such as Olive, Coconut, Shea, Strawberry, Mango and many more! So there is definitely a scent for everyone! I soo love the smell of moringa, for me it smells divine! My sister loves the smell too! It’s a really, really nice body oil – easy to massage in, light-textured, and beautifully scented. It works marvellously all over my body not to mention on my face! It’s a fantastic all-rounder for beauty nerds (like me!) and people on the go. Oh how I love using it on my hair too! It moisturize my dry and damage hair naturally. And it leaves a lovely scent to my hair! If you also want to apply this on your face I suggest that you try it first because that’s the most sensitive part of our skin and we have different skin types too so you better be careful on using it! Remember, not all beautifying products will work on your skin especially when you have a very sensitive skin type like mine. If it doesn’t suit to your skin then stop using it, alright?! But I just am glad and happy (actually giddy) because finally I was able to solve my skin problem! Woo hoo! So next time when the dry skin season comes around again, I know I’m ready for the battle! And I am trusting nothing but The body shop Moringa beautifying oil. 🙂

How about you?! Have you tried any of The Body Shop’s beautifying oil?!

Kikay Finds: Benefit Flawless Complexion Makeup Kit

Its 12:09AM already and I was about to start this post, my boys are still up and playing in our room so while they we’re busy I quietly sneaked in front of the computer and saw this post at my drafts. So, I decided to continue this so I can share it with y’all. So please forgive my grammar (as always) because my mind is off to LaLa Land now…. Teehee! Moving on, I’ve mentioned on my previous post how I fancy Benefit Cosmetics because its really good to my skin, very lightweight, and so easy to use. I also purchased their complexion makeup kit together with the lip and cheek kit that I mentioned from my previous post.

I’ve been using this makeup for almost two weeks now and so far so good, actually when it comes to cosmetics I only use TheFaceShop. It was my first time to try different brand of makeup but I like it, and I really really like it. I could not ask for more because I’ve got everything I need in this kit. Benefit’s custom skin perfectors come together in this convenient kit to give you an even, luminous complexion. It blends away imperfections and minimize the appearance of pores with the must-haves in this collection. The complexion makeup kit is available in light, medium ,and deep skin complexion. I recommend medium complexion kit for those girls who is also morena (tan), like me.

Oh, I really love how they named their products and I’m a sucker for them! They’ve got a good marketing strategy and they’re notorious because they’ve got the coolest and cutest packaging designs that are indeed catchy to the eyes, and oh they really got me! To my surprised, this frugalicious momma immediately purchased two kits in one stop, without thinking twice. For only Php1500 you can try all their best products. Their “star” product POREfessional is also included in this kit, this is one of the best base makeup that I have ever tried (I swear!)!

Kikay Finds: The Body Shop Moringa Body Mist

It’s so hard to find the perfect happy-medium scent that is not too sweet and not too floral,but I am happy because The Body Shop Moringa Body Mist is just perfect. This spray is fab and the smell lasts all day when sprayed. It also has the right amount of sweetness and floral scent that keep you from feeling like your grandma. This spray is richly floral that gives you a gentle burst of delicate florals. The fragrance is very light and airy, it doesn’t give you the cloying feel that stronger eau de toilettes can give, the smell is so refreshing.

Kikay Finds: Benefit “Go TropiCoral”

Hello! Hello! Gosh! I’m too excited to share this post because it’s all about kikayness (Giddy me!)! Have you heard about Benefit cosmetics? I’m not really familiar with it, not until they opened their branch in Rustan’s Makati. They recently opened their 3rd branch in Rustans Makati and I’m really excited to see it! Oh well, what do you expect to a “Make-up geek Mommy”? After all I’m just a girl who loves kikay stuffs and would die without it. 🙂

And here’s a little trivia about Benefit Cosmetics: (Courtesy of Wikipedia)

Benefit Cosmetics is a manufacturer of cosmetics founded and headquartered in San Francisco, California.

Benefit Cosmetics was founded in 1976 by twins Jean and Jane Ford. Initially founded as a beauty boutique, the shop specialized in quick-fix products for beauty dilemmas.

Benefit make up is unique compared to its competitors and draws in the customer due to its quirky packaging. Different products each have their own individual humorous design which makes the product stand out. The approach which Benefit have gone for is to appeal to the female market hypnotizing its customers into such a “pretty and cute” design; the numerous range of fonts, images and colours break all rules of a consistent house style yet Benefit manage to pull this off incredibly well.

Just so you know. Now, let’s move on to my review. Continue reading
