My only post last year was a skincare routine so I might as well update it:

Facial Wash:
1. The Body Shop's Tea Tree 3-in-1 Facial Scrub  - I've been using this since November 2016 and it works great to dry up my pimples and tone down my skin's oiliness. I'm still sad that Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub got discontinued and was replaced by a whitening one.
Toner:
2. Dickinson's Witch Hazel toner or Etude House's True Relief Moist Mist Toner - I use the Dickinson's one at night to remove leftover impurities that my facial wash didn't get rid of, while I use the Etude House mist toner in the morning to freshen up my face. I've used the Dickinson's one since August 2016 while I got the Etude House last month.

Because I'm one of those cheesy dog parents, I actually used the word "barkday."

Jan 21st
I planned on writing this the day after Chewie's birthday but laziness got the best of me and the rest is history.
It was a small celebration and the boyfriend attended, of course. My mom cooked baked mac and I bought donuts for us hoo-mans while I ordered a birthday cake online that Chewie could actually eat. It was liver-flavored and topped with cream cheese.

We couldn't make him sit still so this is the only decent photo I've got.

Instead of foundation, I wear a BB cream for my everyday routine. Skinfood's Peach Sake Pore BB Cream isn't the first BB Cream I tried but it's the best one so far.

According to the website, it contains peach extract that soothes oily, troubled skin, and Sake that controls excessive sebum secretion, which is why I bought it.


Photo courtesy of makeupalley.com because mine has run-out.

First off, the packaging: I love that it comes with a pump because it's hygienic and travel-friendly. I don't like the wooden cover of the plastic cap though because it goes soft when you get it wet.

As for the product, a little goes a long way even though it's still light coverage. It has a semi-matte finish that gives you that dewy Korean skin while not looking oily.

It keeps oil at bay for a while, which is around four hours in my case because it is hella hot here in the Philippines. I set it with a foundation powder so that it lasts throughout the day.

The first beauty product review of the month goes to The Body Shop's Tea Tree Rescue Kit!
A little skin type background: I used to never wear and care for makeup because I didn't need it. Then came summer of 2014 and all hell broke loose. My skin became oily and acne-prone during that hot summer. My acne lessened a year later and I only get cysts during that time of the month now but I'm still an oily to combination skin type.

I bought this in November because I was looking for a facial wash that has salicylic acid in it to combat my oiliness. It is now my holy grail facial wash because Garnier's Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub isn't being sold here anymore. I tried using Garnier's Pure Active Anti-Acne White but it isn't the same anymore. So sad.

It seems that men think and act like they have the right to judge a person's--most often women--value by their face and/or body.
