Bioessence QuadWhite 4-in-1 Soap To Exfoliate The Skin

This week, I am very fortunate to get a 3-day off from work. Yesterday was the first day but I pretty much did nothing. I've been procrastinating a lot lately and I want to put an end to it (at least for now lol). Today, let me share with you my thoughts about Bioessence QuadWhite 4-in-1 Soap.

Bioessence is one of the skincare brands that I genuinely love. I remember how my first facial turned a success and following it up with using their Acnetrol line gave me the clearest skin I've ever had in my entire life. If only I can bring back the time... I guess this is when it hits hard when they say, 'you're not getting any younger'.


This premium soap contains a blend of 4 whitening ingredients (L-Glutathione, Carica Papaya Extract, Kojic Acid and Vitamin C) that helps the skin to be fairer, brighter, brighter, and young-looking.

Benefits: removes skin impurities and excess oils; lightens skin discoloration

So much whitening ingredients for a single soap, eh? To be honest, I didn't know this soap exist until this one time when I wanted to repurchase Acnetrol products online. I key in the brand name and it showed me all the products available. I saw this soap and got intrigued because the seller said that this is great for underarm and bikini areas. I've had problems with chicken skin and uneven skin tone for quite a while so I guess trying it out won't hurt that much.

Let me just appreciate the packaging - I like that it's made of eco-friendly materials with a little bit of plastic. Nothing fancy but I like minimal designs so.

This soap lathers richly and it goes a long way. It's one of those soaps that has a sudsy formula to the core so there's nothing to waste. It gets mushy easily, mind you, so make sure to store it in a dry place after use. What I normally do is cut the soap in half (or even smaller if possible), so I don't have to wet the whole soap at once. I don't know 'bout you, but this is me being practical.

I didn't take this soap seriously and I didn't expect that much either. I initially thought that it works just like other soaps wherein you just have to lather and rinse and wait for a miracle for your skin to lighten up.

My main target were the parts that seemed darker than the rest of my body - bikinis areas, underarms, knees, elbows, ankles - so I only apply this soap to these areas every time I take a bath. I leave the lather on for about 3-5 minutes before rinsing it off. I was surprised when I noticed that my skin is peeling on the 3rd day of use. Ooooh, that was quick! The good thing is that it's peeling but not to the point where it's uncomfortable. No severe dryness or irritation from having the urge to scratch the skin from time to time. Whenever I do, maybe it's just my hair starting to crawl up. LOL.

I've tried peeling oils or body exfoliating products before but nothing feels gentler than peeling with this soap. It doesn't force your skin to shed excessively (if you know what I mean). There are visible peeling but the dead skin cells that it removes are very fine so skin peels evenly. As a result, you get softer and smoother layer. Skin feels tighter and more even. It also lessens textures so it would be great if you are looking for something to smoothen out your chicken skin.

I haven't used it for the rest of my body since I'm not into lightening anymore. My dream now is to make my skin to look more even. I haven't tried it on my face either but I might give it a shot especially I have a lot of blemishes and pimple scars. I'll just give an update once I'm able to try it out.

The only thing I hate about it is that it's hard to find, all Bioessence products are. Because of the pandemic, I couldn't drop by any physical stores (they are also far from where I live) so online buying is my last and only resort. I'm just lucky to maybe spot one or two sellers who have available stocks.

So would I repurchase? Surely, my answer is yes. I'll continue using until I'm satisfied. For only P180. this product is worth buying.

Pond's Anti-Bacterial Refreshing Face Mist Review

I've been binge-watching Love Alarm but I'm against the couple who will end up together so I'm turning my phone off and out of frustration, here's comes an entry to this blog. I'll share my quick review of Pond's Anti-Bacterial Refreshing Face Mist (50ml/P100) which I got together with Pond's Anti-Bacterial Facial Foam a few months back.

There's nothing really fancy on the way it looks but I appreciate the minimalist design. I think it's very neat. It's also small so it's quite handy but sometimes I mistook it for my alcohol spray bottle. LOL. All the information and claims are printed in the back part, as well as the ingredient list.

Pond's Anti-Bacterial Refreshing Face Mist
Fresh and protected from germs instantly. Refreshing face mist with Skin Defense Technolog, 100% organic roses and 5 vitamins. Fits 99.9% germs on skin for fresh, clean and healthy glowing skin - even when wearing mask. Gentle on skin. 0% alcohol.

I do believe that Pond's develop their anti-bacterial range to cater to the most common skin problem we experience nowadays: maskne. I am thankful to be working at home now because I don't have to commute and wear face masks. I remember some time in June when I was asked to report onsite and my face itches every now and then. I get breakouts on areas where face masks could cover so despite the discomfort, it's the only thing that saves me from people who would stare at my skin. Up to now, they still left blemishes especially on my lower cheek, chin and jaw area.

Now that I'm working from home, it doesn't guarantee that I am safe from germs and bacteria. Having face mists that are anti-bacterial is genius because it kills even before microorganisms invade your inner system.

Pond's Anti-Bacterial Refreshing Face Mist has a floral scent because of the natural rose extract. Some may probably find it off-putting but I like it. It's very refreshing on the skin and is quite hydrating too. It reduces dryness and dark patches and most of all, helps in keeping the skin clear and prevents infections. Depends on your usage, one bottle may not last you a long time. Mine only lasted for about a week but that's because I was so into it that I apply it multiple times everyday. I guess it just kind of became a habit just like how spraying alcohol has been in our daily lives.

Pretty In Pink This Summer With Ever Bilena Eyeshadow Palette

Summer is coming, which means it’s time to welcome more colors into your everyday look! This season, bring out your cute and fun side and try experimenting with pink hues with the help of Ever Bilena’s Eyeshadow Palette in Pink (P150), but currently on sale for P38 only at select participating stores to celebrate Ever Bilena’s 38th birthday!

Here are some easy eye makeup looks you can try:

Pink Glossy Lids

Upgrade your basic eye makeup to something more runway-worthy by adding gloss to the lids. To achieve this look, prime the eyes with primer or concealer. Apply the pink shades from the EB Eyeshadow Pink Palette on the lids then top with lip gloss. Be warned, one of the downsides of sporting this look is that you may experience some slipping or creasing on the lids - thanks to the gloss. So don’t forget to have your eyeshadow brush, gloss, and EB Eyeshadow Pink Palette (don’t worry, they’re pretty handy!) in your purse for a quick touch-up.

Cat Eye

For added drama, try the cat eye makeup. You will need a thin angled brush for creating precise lines. Draw a line from the outer corner of the eye then connect it to the middle of the upper lash line. Fill it with the pink hues from the palette. Clean the edges with makeup wipes or cover excess eyeshadow with concealer.

Upside-Down Eyeliner

This easy-to-do eye makeup look may be simple but can be very impactful. The trick is to keep the eyelids neutral so the color on the lower lash line pops. Apply concealer before applying the eyeshadow and before sure to blend well to avoid harsh lines.

Soft and smoky

If classic is more your thing, go for the soft and smoky eye look. Complement your pink lids with black liner on the top lash line and then smudge it out with a brush.

Feel the vibrant vibes of summer by incorporating pops of color into your makeup looks using the Ever Bilena Eyeshadow Palette in Pink. Available on Ever Bilena’s official page on Lazada and Shopee. Avail of the sale, visit Ever Bilena’s official Facebook page (@everbilenacosmetics) and Instagram (@everbillenofficial) to know the participating stores.

NITA: My New Favorite Local Clothing Store

Loading your wardrobe with unique pieces that have beautiful cuts and great craftmanship is an investment for me. It's not enough that you can create millions of OOTDs with what you have. It's owning clothes that not only fit and emphasize your body, but clothes that are so you, regardless of the brand and the price tag. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what kind of style you're into, because they aren't supposed to define you, set you apart or make you stand out. You make them shine and that's the truth.

I've had enough of neutral, plain garments and denims that lately, I've been obsessing over fashion prints. It's not that I forget my old clothes or how my taste was. I have this purpose of mixing and pairing them up to take my dressing game up a notch.

Since I hate to go out, I've been spending time browsing different online shops for unique, high quality printed and patterned dresses and tops with the hopes of getting the right size. Affordability is one thing I always consider, but nothing should be greater than quality clothes that won't go out of style.

This might be a hard feat considering that fashion is fast-changing, yet here comes Nita Clothing.

Nita. Just a name for some but for sisters/store owners Krisna and Carla, Nita stands for so much more. Aptly named after their mother, the person who spurred their passion for fashion, Nita Clothing is an indie shop that is all about the love for variety, color, and individuality.

Proudly 100% Filipino made, clothes from Nita are designed by Krisna and crafted by her team from high-quality materials. They are then lovingly packaged and branded by the sisters.

The Nita store makes sure there is something for everyone - whether you are looking for office outfit staples, date night dresses, trendy numbers, casual chic attire, or sweet ensembles. Always striving for originality, designs are sold in very limited quantities - a personalized gift from Nita to you.

I am not in any way sponsored/paid to write this blog but writing about clothes got me so hyped up. So far, I only own total of four (4) dresses from Nita - I never know they existed until only a couple of weeks ago but so far, I love the first few picks I got from them.

You ever browse through a shop and feels like their style speaks to you and calls your name? You probably think that it's too early to gush about it but it's not always everyday that you come across a brand and think of bulk buying because you are having a hard time deciding which dress is better!

This is not me being an impulsive buyer here. I feel that the shop deserves so much because I can tell that they put so much effort in making each piece looks like it's personally made for someone. I can feel that the clothes I bought were just made for me. Their sizing is accurate. They have good customer service. I love how they choose good quality materials and how they cater to everyone's style. And most of all, Nita Clothing is a Pinoy brand.

I am loving their dresses more than anything - I'll never worry about running into someone who wears the exact same thing. I think the prints and patterns are so rare, dainty and delicate. Each style is so classy and easy to pair with. But most of all, I think I'd wear them forever LOL!

I first saw them on Shopee but you can also place your order through their Facebook page. They also have a physical shop in Greenhills.
