I hate pimples! I really don't like waking up to one and when I do, I have to resist the temptation of popping it or drying it out with toothpaste!
The worst thing you can do to pimples is popping them or scratching it. Pimples could be either painful or itchy. It can either have an "eye" or just a red bump. The best thing to do is really care for them. They take about 3-4 days to clear, but when they do, the battle isn't over. You have nasty acne scars and marks to deal with.
2 Fridays ago, I was on an outdoor shoot where we were under the sun for about 3 hours. I seeked shelter under the shade of a huge tree for about half the time but when I got home, I found that some parts of my face darkened, and parts of my legs and arms as well. I looked like a dalmatian! I figured that it would go away in time but it really wasn't nice to look at.
I did some reading and the only way to stop my skin from further darkening was to use whitening products because these products control melanin production which darken the skin when you have been exposing yourself in UV in long periods of time. I have always been afraid of these products because I was afraid to look white-pink or even gray! So that's why I avoided whitening lotions and soaps at all cost.
This is the first time I bought anything from IN 2 IT and the brand seems to have some very promising products up its sleeve!
I need your help! I have fair skin but I have dark knees and elbows. I have tried everything: bleaching, lemons, vinegar and salt scrub, and whitening soaps but nothing seems to work! I am working in a hotel and we are required to wear short skirts and no stockings. I can make do with the dark elbows because we wear a blazer, but I get really embarrassed with my knees. HELP!
Thanks so much Sabs. I hope to hear from you soon!

I was in Rustan's last night when I came across VO5 Hot Oil treatment for treated hair in their cosmetics section in the supermarket. I dye my hair once in a while so my hair is all dried out. I took a shot and got myself a box for PhP 97.75 for 2 tubes.
I went to Subic just last weekend. And as we went to Royal Subic, the first thing I searched for were their imported cosmetics. I wanted to see what products they had from Korea and China just so I can test them. Royal Subic has a lot of brands which you can't find here in Manila so I got 2 products to review.
Ever since I did that review on Maybelline's BB Cream/Tinted moisturizer, I got curious what "BB" meant. Take for example the model I put makeup on (photographed) a few months ago, Rica. She's Filipino-Korean and I just admired her skin. I just thought that they were born with it. But after a little research, I found out about the BB Cream.
Doesn't it seem like every Korean actress is blessed with naturally flawless skin? Well, maybe so but now we know that they are also armed with a secret weapon called the BB Cream.
I have always been a fan of Lancome's La Base Pro. A skin primer that works wonders, specially on mature skin. Lancome would send me about 2-3 tubes of L'Absolu Rouge La Base every time I would request for new products and I never gave it much attention. Today, I decided to apply it on my lips before applying my lipstick and it works wonders!
After the wedding I did yesterday, I was killing time in the mall and I chanced upon Maybelline's new tinted moisturizer, the B.B Cream. I didn't have any second thoughts to try it since it only comes in 18ml tubes for PhP 200.00. It's the perfect trial-phase size.
It only comes in one shade. A shade that promises to suit most skin colors. Now that really intrigued me. I've always had the hard time in looking for the perfect tinted moisturizer since most of them came in peach undertones. It usually turns ashy on my skin, which I hate.
I got to test the product today when I went out to meet one of my brides. So, I decided to put the tinted moisturizer to the test. The texture of the product is very creamy. It doesn't run so it feels very much like liquid foundation. The color (when not contacted with skin) is nude, a little on the beige size which is good.
