Sweet Speckles Nail Polish by Bobbie (Review)

I'm not gunna lie.. I used to be obsessed with nail polishes. It was like my most favorite thing to do! But when I went for College I kinda forget all about it because my school was not allowing nail polishes. Ikr! What a bummer. 

Buy anyways, now that I am finally done with College and just started working.. I am kinda making my way back into love (pun intended) lol into nail polishes actually. Then I saw this little cutie called "Sweet Speckles" by Bobbie nail polishes. I fell inlove with it because of the fun going on with those colors. And for 60 pesos I was like "it's a steal!"
At first coat, it was kind of sheer looking but after a few more here's what it looks like! 
I love love this! It doesn't give much of a justice because I was just using my iphone. But this looks really good and neon! I highly recommend this girls. If you see this anywhere, go grab it! :)
Any cute nailpolishes finds lately? Share them, I would love to know. x

Empire Home: Saint Tropez Scented Candle Review

Hello beauties, if you've been following me on my instagram then you would know how much I've been obsessing over candles lately. So today I'm gunna share with you guys this candle that I bought recently. It's called "Empire Home" in Saint-Tropez scent. I've been seeing this at Robinsons Department store eversince I was in college. But I have't gotten a chance to actually purchase it but when I saw this last friday on a 50% off sale, I figured it was time for me to try it. Oh yes, you know me and sale. Cheapskate right here! lol
The first thing I actually like about this is the fact that it's very chic and classy looking.. I like the detailed print to it. I think this would look stunning on your vanity table as a decor candle.
Empire home candles were all carefully hand-poured. They used premium soy waxed (or so they claim) so I had high expectations to it. On a cold sniff, the scent is very mild, and rather summery or beachy. I can definitely imagine being in Saint Tropez with this candle.
I burned it yesterday just to try it.. 
Within few seconds..
I can already tell that this candle would tunnel..
And I was right! 
I hate when candles do this.. For every candle lovers out there, I know you would feel me with this one. We all love candles to have an even burning. But this doesn't do that. I tried to give it a chance and let it burn for a few minutes more but it just keeps on tunneling on me. Plus the scent isn't there at all.. It was very mild and I can't really smell anything at all even if it was just burning beside me. What a shame! 
This candle was originally Php345 but I got it for only Php175 (50% off) so I can't really complain. Good thing I bought this now because if I happened to buy this on its regular price I would be very mad. Haha
This is what it looks like after cooling it down for a few minutes.. So sad! I would definitely still recommend though this as a decor because this would really look cute on your home or room. But this definitely not for burning. This comes with two more scents though New York and Manhattan. Still thinking of getting them to be honest as I would like to give this another chance. lol

You, what are your fave candles? :)

The face shop haul (SALE)

Last friday night I decided to drop by The Face Shop to check if they were really having SALE because honestly, they rarely ever go on sale.. Infact this is the first time I've ever seen them on sale. And honestly, they didn't even have like a sign infront of their store that says they're on sale. It just says "best sellers with better prices" or something that rhymes like that. But anyways, just to try my luck I went inside and saw that some of their products were really on sale!! So I was like "is this really happening??". And as always.. I went there just to check, and now I have a haul. lol

The first thing I picked up was this make-up remover wipes.. Which was not on sale btw. But I've been meaning to try this eversince I ran out of my etude wipes. I know that wipes are like really bad for our skin but this has been my life saver evesince I started working because ya know when you arrived home from work ain't nobody got time for a full on oil make-up remover routine.. So (Lezz be honest home gurls ahkay?) I just slap one of this on my face and then proceed with my facial cleanser as usual.. I still do the double cleansing.
I will review this stuff soon vs. the etude wipes. Just a hint: I like this one better.
Then I also picked-up these Special Zone Care masks specifically made for the smile lines. These were on buy 1 take 1 so I grabbed these for Php120 I believe.
And last but not the least... This AURA CC CREAM that I've been eyeing for the longest time! Yes oh yes!! This was on sale! I love this one and I've tried this on sample before and I fell inlove with it but it was like Php1,500+ something which is way expensive for me. But this is what it looks like on my face the first time I've tried it. The coverage was just awesome!

Anyways, I was thinking of getting the full compact for Php1,195 (sale price) but it was still too steep for me so I bought the refill instead.
I figured I won't be bringing this with me anyways though so it's okay. Plus I've been trying to cut my spending. Because I buy way too much stuff. lol
good thing the refill comes with a sponge. I bought this for only Php765 I think? Which is way more cheaper if I buy the full compact. So yesh! Kudos for me!
If you haven't tried this one what you actually need is to push that thingy mah jiggy for the product to come out.
A little goes a long way with this CC Cream! It's very buildable and I actually don't need any concealer because of its great coverage. 
I really really love this one and I would highly highly recommend this eventhough its a bit on a pricey side. I'm not sure how long there's gunna be a sale butdefinitely  check them out if you're at the mall. :)

Creightons Revive Raspberry and Pomegranate Bath and Shower Review

As you all know, I have a great love about toiletries as I love having my "me time" in the bathroom. Today, I want to share with you guys my new bubblebath/shower gel from Creightons. I bought this for only Php275 at the Beautybar Podium. 
The product claims that this can awaken your senses and revive your soul. I especially like the color of this one and that actually what attracts me the most. I've been eyeing this for awhile now and finally I was able to pick it up and try it for myself. 
The texture was a bit thick but still runny. The smell was amazing too and fruity.
