Purederm Vitalizing Green Tea Pack: Review

English instructions at the back. :)

For the past couple of months, I've been struggling with acne problems. Yes, it's been established since way back then that I do have acne prone skin. Recently, however, my breakouts have been extreme to the point where I feel like my self esteem has been affected or something to that effect. But really, I don't want to dwell on that on this post. Just to give myself something to look forward to, I bought this face pack. I have previously tried the strawberry one (also from purederm) which is specifically made for acne prone skin but when I went to Watson's, this was the only one available. I still got it since it said it's for all skin types. Sadly, however, I do not remember getting any significant results from this particular pack. Here's what I think:

- moisturizing
- cheap (PHP39.75)
- available locally
- good for all skin types
- does not break me out
- one sachet is good for more than one use
- nice green tea smell

- did nothing for my existing breakouts
- if you're planning to use it a couple of times, the packaging could be a hassle

I guess if I were to describe the product in two words, I'd say it's an intensive moisturizer, much like the night creams but I guess a tad better. Now if you're only looking for a product like that, then I recommend that you get this one. As for me, I probably wouldn't buy this product again. I mean, I might re-purchase the strawberry one but not this particular variant. I just don't think this is the product I'm looking for.

.Etude House Haul.

Hi guys! I'm just here to share a photo of my latest haul in Etude House. Because I bought their beauty kit, I got 2 tickets to the pink fair and 2 makeup 101 pass. Later that day, I bought more Etude House products and got an additional 1 pink fair ticket. A week before the event, I found out I would not be able to attend the event because I had work to do. I urged my sister to attend the event even without me and she agreed to go with my mom and a friend. A day before the said event, though, they told me they wouldn't be able to ! I wasted 3 pink fair tickets and 2 makeup 101 passes. If I found out earlier, I would've given the tickets out to you, my dear readers. But anyway, it's not like they deliberately planned not to go. I'll probably film a haul video featuring these products next time. That's all for now! I have to go prep for work. Toodles~ :)

.Pure Beauty Treatment Hair Mask.

Hi! I know I've been really lazy lately and I do have a lot of back logs piling up so I won't be placing much intro and will just go ahead with the pros and cons of the product.

 you may click to enlarge to check the contents and all that
sealed nicely, right? :)


- makes hair soft and smooth
- available in Watson's
- affordable
- doesn't break me out
- 200g is quite a lot
- made in Korea (I trust Korean made beauty products. ^^)

- smells like butter ball (if you don't mind this kind of smell, then I guess it won't be a con for you)

My sister really likes this product and it's so rare for her to actually like a particular product. If you ask me, though, I'm pretty neutral with this product. I think I can live with or without it. Will I repurchase? Hmmm... I'm not so sure.

with love, Anna Luisa

Purederm Dual Wellbeing Pack: Review

It's been a long time since I purchased this product and I only got to use the product last week. Purederm Dual Wellbeing Pack is a 2-step face pack that you apply one after the other. You first massage the deep cleansing peeling gel onto your face for about a minute and apply the nutritious vitamin pack. This product is made in Korea. Don't worry though, there are english instructions at the back. :)

I personally love this face pack and I believe it's one of the best I've tried. I will surely be repurchasing this product once I drop by Watson's.

- cheap
- locally available
- has english instructions
- smells super good (yum!)
- makes skin feel soft and smooth
- doesn't break me out nor give me allergies
- 1 sachet is good for more than one use

- doesn't come in a full-sized/bigger (with better packaging) version

with love, Anna Luisa
