My Pimple Fighting Routine… (part 1)

My Pimple Fighting Routine ; My Cheap Accessible Easy to Find Items in My Pimple Fighting Routine / Drugstores Finds.

“This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me”

Haha Intro music muna for this blog post. Warning lang mahaba-haba eto . Pero the catch is most of these products you can buy at the mall, groceries and normal drugstores without breaking the bank so mejo worth-it basahin!

Ready Start!

I decided to blog about this kasi a lot of my friends keep on asking me ano daw ba ginagamit ko sa mukha ko at kuminis. Even the facialist that usually do my anti-acne treatment started to ask me every visit  kung ano daw ba gamit ko ngayon, hindi na kasi aka masyado nag papa-facial at walang time, nagkikita na lang kami kapag nag papa-underarm waxing ako hehe. But I’ll try to have a diamond peel treatment from them, sale kasi sa Mall today and the past 2 days so pati ang Dermcare nag-sale for their services na pwede mo gamitin in your own time convenience, Galing diba? Okay, going back so ayun kinuwento ko sa kanila yung mga ginagamit ko tapos my sister and childhood friend went to Watson’s immediately para bumili ng mga products. Hinanap ko pa talaga sa google isa-isa at nag effort i-save sa mga phone nila para tama yung bibilhin nila hehe #feelingInfluencer. Medyo maganda naman yung effect ng sa sis ko, kaka-start nya pa lang kasi eh. Update ko kayo next time. Yung sa childhood friend ko I still have to check. Yung sa office mate ko naman, nakuwento ko lang sa kanya then she told me she bought some of it tapos ang sarap daw sa feeling parang ang linis linis ng mukha nya hehe. Sige let’s start the discussion / tsismisan.

Isa ako sa mga di pinalad magkaroon ng makinis, poreless, blemish free face. It all started when I was on 6th grade, during that time nauso yung mga powder na may color  like the Ponds one where it has 3 varieties, yung brown it acts as a foundation, tapos may color blue that serves as powder lang then may color pink na supposed to be eh blush on kaso I used it as a powder so imagine I am walking thru out the school pink yung buong mukha ko haha. Kaso hindi ata sya hiyang sakin I started to have small bumps in my forehead tapos syempre my Mom was not here she was working abroad since I was in 2nd grade kaya nung nakita ng Papa ko sabi nya safeguard lang daw katapat nun haha. So ayun I went to hi-school with pimples na mejo madami, I always hear my classmates comments like  “maganda sana sya may pimples lang” and once teased as tigidigyawat. I felt inferior during those times nawala konti yung self confidence ko, ewan ko ba kung bakit ako lang tinamaan ng puberty during that time sa klase namin. Good thing when I was on 3rd year nag-subside na sya ng slight, pero I still have 1 or 2 spots in my face lumilipat lang sila ng pwesto but  you can still see their presence. After hi-school nawala sya but the little bumps in my forehead stays forever. Hindi sya halata sa malayuan pero pag malapitan kita sya.  Nakakawala din ng confidence mag no-makeup look haha.

Fast forward nung nagtatrabaho ako, nagkaroon ako ng pimple break-outs maybe because of unhealthy food, smoking, stress and puyat. Mejo nahihiya ako kasi I am incharged in customer communication and sometimes I go thru meeting and they send me in Exhibitions kaya dapat I should look good. Below you can see some of my photos

Yes, kasama ko si Ms. A in most of my photos. Di ako mahilig mag selfie magisa eh. As you can see in the first photo mejo magaspang yung mukha ko, forever kasi kami ng little bumps sa noo ko na sometimes I think na rashes sya or fungal infection o allergies pero maliliit na pimples lang talaga sila haha. Second and third photo you could see  na gumamit na ko ng filter may pimples pa din haiist, at may mga pimple marks pa.These are the reasons why I take matter on my own hands. I went to Dermcare for acne treatment, it hurts sobra kasi they are going to pop out every blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and zits in your face. I think it helps din kasi you will have a clean face after pero yung after care ang mejo mahirap since may tendency na mainfect sya eh. I tried their after care regimen which consists of soap, antibiotic for your face and toner. I only like the SNS soap but the rest is so-so, nakukulangan ako plus drying sya sobra. The facial  treatment and soap is okay, but I still have to find products that can help.

So dito na pumasok yung try and error, if you are going to look for a product na hiyang sayo, maghanap ka ng common denominator sa mag na-test mo na product na hindi okay, yung mga product that gives you itch, break out and redness tapos yung same ingredients sa kanila yun ang dapat iniiwasan mo. In my case upon research I discover that mineral oil is bad for me so I am always try to look for products na water based or walang mineral oil. I also dont use hardcore whitening products on my face, nagiging itchy kasi sya eh.

These are the items I am currently using;

PureDerm Argan Oil makeup remover– (PHP 198 in Watsons) First, after long day of wearing make-ups and powder you should remove it before washing your face. Otherwise mag smudge lang sya sa mukha mo. Also it will give time for your face to breathe. Pagkauwi ko pa lang at pagkapalit ng pambahay I reached out for this para tanggalin ang make-up then after ilang hours pa bago ako maligo. Double Cleansing ata tawag dito,

20170714_205104.jpg

Garnier Pure Active Anti Acne White Foam– (PHP 159 in Watsons) Eto ang break through discovery ko, ang lakas makadry ng pimples. Never ko syang pinalitan simula  I started using it a few months ago. Di sya mahapdi sa face. At di sya makati. I use it every morning and evening, with by barehands and water. I dont use loofah in my face kasi I read it somewhere na you should only use your hands for your face. Hindi abrasive kasi sensitive ang mukha natin. Malilinis sya promise specially if you do double cleansing like me. No need na for loofah.

Garnier Pure Active Anti Acne White Scrub– (PHP 89 in Watsons) I use it every scrub night. Usually twice a week. I use my ring and pinky finger pag gamit ko to, para di masyado madiin tama lang yung pressure. It really helps in drying your pimples. Kaso after mo gamitin parang na-stretch yung face mo kasi drying din sya.

20170714_204834
 
SNS Anti-Fungal Soap- (SNS PHP 80) I use this 2 times everyday. After my bath I still wash my face with this. Kasi diba after you rinse up  your hair conditioner will still run in your face. I use this as a finishing touch in my bath rituals.
Image may contain: indoor

Eskinol Classic White Toner + dalacin-c – ( I already forgot the price pero a set will not cost you more than PHP150) This one I’ll need to put a disclaimer, I read an informative post on FB from a Pharmacist, that it is harmful to use the dalacin-c without a prescription. Kahit na you’re not going to take it orally and just put it in your toner, bad pa din daw sya it can cause AntiBiotic resistance and worst, colon problems on the long run. That is why Watson’s are not selling them without prescription / reseta. Sa Mercury Drugs naman they’ll sell you the smallest dosage, that is what I’m buying, pero as I read it bawal pa din yun. I am not aware of this when I started using the anti-bacterial medicine. I put the powder from the capsule inside the bottle of Eskinol and mixed it up by shaking. Nung marami pa kong pimples I used it everynight and it’s effective naman kasi nga it will prevent infections. And then nung nawala na yung mga pimples ko I only use it pag may lumitaw paisa-isa or as spot treatment meaning I put it in the cotton pads and  damp it on the problem areas or where the zit appeared. It works for me everytime I do that, Pag-gising ko the next morning dry na yung pimples and wala na yung redness. Again, you can use it on your own risk. And not because it works for me it will also do the same for you. You have to check if you have allergy for this certain anti-bacterial medicine. Or maybe it will be better if  you skip the dalacin-c and use the toner only.20170714_205247

Eto naman ang no make-up face ko ngayon. By the way no filter and no hilamos din yan. The bottom 2 is taken inside the house that is why mejo iba yung lightning the upper 2 naman sa terrace at may natural light. Di na sya tulad ng sati diba? Tyagaan lang talaga, On the other news,don’t mind my eyebags ha, puyat aka lagi eh, #PinaghirapanKoYan ahaha!

IMG_20170716_083914_895.jpg

This one below naman is with make-up and filter, makaka-peke na ba haha? Unlike before di na kita yung ilong mo sa filter tapos yung mga pimples mo bonga pa rin hehe.

So yan na nga yung mga sabon and facial washes I use in my face. Aside from the Argan Oil make-up remover, these items dry up the pimples so fast and will make your face squeaky clean that even part of your face will dry up too so kelangan mo ng moisturizer na kayang i-reverse yung dryness with out making your face very oily para bumalik is pimples.  I’ll post the moisturizer in Part 2.

Kayo ano secret nyo, share nyo naman sakin hehe.

ADD is A SUPERPOWER…

Last week I took an online test to see if I have an ADD or Attention Deficit Disorder,

(ADD, or attention deficit disorder, is a type of ADHD. Depending on symptoms, three types of ADHD have been identified: Predominantly Inattentive Type ADHD is also sometimes called attention deficit disorder (ADD). … Hyperactivity and impulsivity are mild in this type.)

 

before that I thought that this is just a “pina-sosyal” (posh) name for KSP or Kulang sa Pansin (seeking constant attention). I used to tell myself and to joke people around na papansin lang ako (attention seeker). I know that maybe what I really have is cyberchondria because I keep on diagnosing myself from the internet. But on my defend I always hit the right thing, just like the time I got pompholyx eczema, I knew the moment I looked up on google that I have it, I just went to the Doctor for confirmation and for treatment, on the other hand I don’t self medicate serious concerns, good thing it doesn’t flare up anymore but I am still avoiding things and foods and enviroment that may trigger it.

So back on ADD the result of the test is quite shocking I scored 46 and moderate to severe  ADD/ADHD is between 26-33. I know I used to get hi-scores in most of the things I even aced my drivers license exam and all those tests they’ll give when you applied in the call center. Pero I am not that aware that even Psychological test eh kakarerin ko. I also took the psycho tests and good thing is I dont have any tendencies to be a serial killer :)).

Screen Shot 2017-07-01 at 2.53.10 PM.pngSo  while I am taking the test my officemate and good friend Ms. A is beside me, so I got moral support. But everytime we read the questions she will be like “That is so you!!” or “It sounds familiar, just like you” or “that is what I always complain about you” and of course the “Its not a test anymore, most of it is a description of you”. But really most of it, tho not all, is describing me. From the things that I do to my attitude. Like when I try to do everything at the same time. Or when I unintentionally cut someone when they are talking, I know that is plain rude but during that time I remember something and I should let them know right then and there. Or when I hyperfocus and I zoned out from everything, the output will be great but sometimes people will get annoyed because I am  not minding them. And sometimes when I zoned out and they start talking to me, they will just look at each other and giggle, I am okay with that. That is why we made a rule that if they are going to ask me important things I should have to look at them or to their eyes, because most of the times I will just say yes even I dont understand what they are saying, so if I didnt look that means my answer is not valid and they cannot use it.

There are so many times I became a victim of it, once our previous technician asked me if he can have a half day, and of all the time he can drop the question, he did it while I am hyperfocusing on my paperworks. Few hours later our Engineer  looks for him so I ring him up and he told me he is out of the office already I asked why and he said I already grant him permission in the afternoon and I said yes. So that is why we have the rule because after the technician noticed it, he took full advantage of it.

Ms. A already did the briefing to our new Engineers in a joking funny way, they are godsent for understanding me and she also told them if sometimes I am zoning out, dont take it too personally because it is not really my intention.

So I did my research and I found out that ADD can be a super power. Here are the good things about it

IMG_20170608_165051_879.jpg

Without exageration, I would like to say that I experience most of it from the Insomia to the motivating others. The no. 25 is not really my thing haha. I know what it feels like to have so many thoughts in your head that it makes you impossible to sleep. It’s like you are a computer and all of your tabs are open at the sametime and you are having a hard time to shut down naturally unless you force quit it. And the anything is possible term, I honestly believe that you can do everything you could think of, you are just limited by your fear and imagination.

Here’s a quote written by Dr Edward Hallowell, who is a pretty big name in this study. so we can understand ADD better, also below are my experiences in some certain part.

images (1).jpg

Just like what I said sometimes I can hyperfocus, but sometimes, no matter how hard I try I can always find a distraction.

Sometimes I feel that I am invincible and I can conquer the world, I just have to wear my red lipstick and stilletos but sometimes I feel that I am inferior and it makes me scared.

I  feel that I am Not giving my best, I always feel everytime that there is something I could do and that I am not doing enough.

I know there lots of people who loved me and I know also the equal half who wished I didnt exist. But what I know is that tiny little voice at the back of my mind who says I am an unlikeable human being can shut the eff up, because I know my worth.

One of the symptoms I think links me to ADD is that I am easily diatracted like most of the time I am thinking of doing this and then something happen there is always something happen, right? And when you realized it the day is over and you didn’t even started it.

And lastly about ideas, yes I have lots of them. That is why I made a blog to somehow vent it out. If I tell all those things to my friends they might end up having insomia like me. And the feeling unaccomplished part, I am always feeling that and somehow I am learning to just breath and think that there is always tomorrow.

Okay, maybe I have ADD or maybe I dont have it and my mind are just making things and exagerating those little symptoms, I might consider having it checked or just live with it. It doesn’t do any harm for me and if I really have it, I think this one works in my favor.

But let me tell you one thing even I might not have it , after all what I read “ADD IS A GIFT”. It’s not about you lack of something and there is something wrong with you, there isnt! Everybody, even the normal ones have some missing parts and you just do things with a little bit of extra and you are a gifted person.  I want you to know that you are special. You have this wonderful brain inside that beautiful head. You have an amazing mind that can lined up with the Geniouses we knew today. You can be an artist, a musician, an athlete or a sales man its up to you, sky is the limit. And with that gift that you think that everything is possible, I know you will be fine.

On the other news, I have to sleep. While I am typing this entry in my phone because I left my laptop at the office, I am also cleaning my apartment and doing the dishes at the same time. So yes I am weird cause I clean my apartment at 12am.

Good night Guys! 😘😘

P.S: I wrote this last night.

Don’t Let Anyone Dull Your Sparkle….

I am writing this because someone closed to my heart hurt me…

Well, I don’t know if she intentionally do that or she just lacks of word to make it sound better. I asked someone what does she think about my blog, I asked her because I am happy on what I’m doing and I’m proud of it. At first she doesn’t answer I get it, she might be focusing on something in her phone. So I asked her again if she ever read my blog, and this is what she said in exact words “I read it once but it’s not interesting, the way you wrote it is not interesting” the moment I heard that, confidence slip easily in my shoulders I totally loose all the confidence I have. I know this person loves me or maybe care for me, but why are you going to hurt someone you loved right? I told her it’s not nice and she could have picked a better word, and there it goes those sentences like “you are asking I’m just answering” and “don’t ask if you don’t want to hear my answer” before that we are fine, we are talking and joking. I don’t know maybe it makes her feel better if everyone around her is not as good as she is, 

The thing is that this person is really hard to pleased, She doesn’t even proud of me and like everything I do is not as good as she do it. She doesn’t know how to drive but every time she is in the back seat she will always tell me that I drive like a lunatic and I can never impressed her with my driving style because once she learned it she will be a lot better than me. I don’t know if this is tough love but it’s not right.

I am just thinking she have a rough past and every time she say something like that, makes her feel  a little bit good of herself, so why I should robbed that feeling from her. Maybe it makes her feel a better person, so I just need to be silent about that and gave it to her, its the least I can do. .

For those who don’t know me, I did not finish college, I barely step in the classroom. I’m a tough kid back then. I run away from home most of the time and I like doing things my way. By the way I’m also the only one in my father side who doesn’t have a fancy degree. So how could I defend myself from her? And does it make sense if I know from inside who I am,. I may not be academically smart, don’t have that PRC card, and doesn’t have a profile picture in my fb in that grad gown. But I have street smarts and a little bit of luck, I have a full time job and lived by myself, paid my own rent bought my own car, bought my own furniture and built my very own fortress of solitude. But people has everything to say. I don’t have to state everything I did for validation but for proof that you should NEVER EVER LET ANYONE DULL YOUR SPARKLE!!- NEVER!! If I listen to those people who said I’m not smart, I’m not good, I’m not beautiful,  I’ll never see Koln Coliseum , Nurnberg Messe, Dusseldorf, Beijing and Shanghai for free! So maybe I’m smart or lucky or maybe I’m just kind. You don’t have to be really smart you just have to be yourself and be the kindest person you can. You can never go wrong with being kind, TRUST ME! 

If there is one thing I learned from living in the street, is that most people will hate you for no effin reasons, they will hurt you badly it is not just as bad when people dear to you did it, but it still hurts. They will torn you down to little pieces and try to make you feel insignificant. But always remember nobody can make you feel inferior with out your content. You may not be the brightest crayon in the box, someday you will have just the right shade to paint something wonderful.

And for the person who hurt me, It’s okay…. I understand you and I will keep on understanding you. It’s my duty to do that, and I’ll still take a bullet for you and care for you. But baby, sometimes please be sensitive because not all the people you will meet will understand and overlooked the details you will say and see that you have a good heart. I don’t want anyone to hurt you and if they did I will still be in your side and will fight for you.

Work Perks…. (plus people in our office)

Last February me and my office mates went to Canyon Cove in Nasugbu Batangas for our summer outing. It’s our company’s second time there, the first one is two yrs. ago when we are just starting, before we only have an overnight stay but this year my Boss is being generous and we stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights, all expense paid and free food!! YEHEY!! But I admit he is more generous last year, when he treat us in one of the best resort in  Panglao Bohol the Henan, free stay for 3 days and 2 nights, in my case they added 1 day because I was hospitalized for food poisoning (and takaw ko kasi eh) plus he also got us free pick up from the office to the airport back and forth and a round trip ticket, Grabe yung amo ko noh? below you will find pictures we take in Batangas13082487_622656577887279_278676421709703922_n.jpgThis picture was taken last 2015, I’m with my Officemate Ms. A, she is really nice and we are working together for 3 years, thru all the stress, pressure and heart aches. There are many times when I cry in front of her she ended up crying too!18950937_1481745775181285_2547480629486040884_n.jpgThis one is from our latest trip, there you could see the AP Manila Team, (clockwise) Glenn is our Service technician he is mainly incharged with our servers and office maintenance, Eric is also our Service technician he is in charge for the tooling department (that is what call the die and moulds we put in the Extruder to give shape for the profiles we used in our windows), Ms. A is our Office Admin and partly HR, sometimes she helped me in some of job too; Airon is our Service Technician that is in charge with some of our machines he is really a funny guy; then there is Me, I am in charge with sales in Asia, Europe and US market, I also look for suppliers and most of the time coordinate with our customer request; then our Engineer Sir RMP, he is like a consultant / Manager, he is a nice guy and very down to earth; next is the person we all love Mang Erning but our foreigner Boss call him Ernie, much easier for him to say and more posh hahaha, Mang Ernie is our office caretaker, he attends in almost all of our request, food for lunch, cigarettes, beer and sometimes I askedhim to pay my electric bill, he is really nice.Screen Shot 2017-06-25 at 9.29.13 PM.png 17799286_800323543453914_6087657307497338491_n.jpg

This is the one we called secret island, we went to the nearby small boat port and ask the fisher man to take us to a nice Island, first they brought us to the island called Layag-Layag, it is nice but crowded it’s like a public beach and we told the fisher man that we came from the Canyon Cove, and we want something isolated. 2 hrs floating in the sea and we found this gem, it doesnt have a name yet and it is actually near to Canyon Cove it just took us 2 hrs because we keep on going farther without realizing there is something great near our area. There is only few locals  and they cook the 2 big Tuna fishes we bought earlier for us, and rice. We have boodle fight and my Austrian Boss was really amazed on the boat and on the food. We paid PHp2,500 to the fisher man and PHP 2,000 for the cottage and food cooking, some beer and softdrinks . They also provided utensils to us. Next time you will be going to Nasugbu you could try that place promise, It is worth it. You could also do camping theres, just bring your own tent.17757555_797963273689941_79009996293531945_n.jpg17814028_1200948173336169_1198351284_n.jpg17796032_796729237146678_4425938464298438093_n.jpg

In regards of the Hotel it is okay, a little bit expensive I think, and there is not much food choices. What we did is we eat outside and we drove 15 mins. going to the city and we ate in Lady Christine’s Baby Back Ribs, sorry I don’t have a picture. The platter with beef bbq, roasted pork, chicken and my favorite the the sausage was really great. Next we drink coffee from the Dunkin Donuts across the street.

The hotel room is nice, I would say average but I like the view from the terrace, And every time I woke up, I’ll go to the terrace and drink my coffee, Isn’t it relaxing. The room really looks like the picture below, and I love sleeping in the bed near the window, I am small so I can fit there.

55322.jpg

The road going into Nasugbu is also nice, One of the things in my unofficial bucket list is to take a picture at the middle of the Bitukang Manok (Chicken intestines) Road. It is called like that because of the spiral and tricky road next to a cliff., You will also passed Keybiang Tunnel going there and Marine Conservatory / base that you can visit during daytime called Cavite de Boracay.17629677_796125700540365_4490538361856078829_n.jpg

Now you know people in our office and our summer getaway, I hope I have lots of time to post my travel here for business and of course for leisure.

Thank you for reading!

 

I Am 32% Done….

Hi, Sorry for my almost 3 months hiatus. Alam ko meron naman sigurong iilan-ilan na nagaabang ng future post ko haha. There is a lot of things going in my work/job, my Boss has been here in the PH for almost 2 months and it’s hard to have a break. My Mom also went home from her work in Malaysia and my sister graduated from college. There is some family dinner, family vacation, and also the little time (2 weeks to be exact) my Mom were here, I have to accompany her and make sure she is enjoying her short break. So I have a lot in my plate the past 3 months. Plus those long weekend holiday I decided to go home in Manila and enjoy the weekend with my Papa, he doesn’t getting any younger and I have to spend some more time with them. I know that I have so many things to do that I often forgot our parents are getting old too. Sana meron talagang pause and replay button in real life noh, or kahit slowmo lang just to make you cherish and enjoy all the little things and important people in your life.

Now about the tittle of my blog post I Am 32% Done…. I watched some one minute video of Nas Daily yesterday. I first saw the video he made to promote our beautiful country the Philippines!! I got interested that I ended up watching 10 more. He always wear a t-shirt saying his age, but not his actual age but the percentage he already lived- the same as below.
Screen-Shot-2017-03-13-at-5.01.47-PMAs you could see it says here he already lived 32 % of his life. He made this theory by looking what is the average life expectancy of the men in their place. In his case US it is 76 years old and he is 25 years old now, thus putting 32 % there. Upon realization I think it makes sense. If somebody ask your age most of us answer it with our actual age, it’s either people will reply oh you don’t look like it or in my case every time Im in an exhibit people will say I’m too young to be here, then that’s it – end of the conversation. While if you say the percentage age, it will be a good conversation starter make people wonder and ask. You will also sounds like an interesting person, right?

In my case I am also 32% done same like him, I am 22 years old and the average life expectancy of the Filipinas are 68.27 as per 2014 statistics (gosh, Pinays should eat more healthy and exercise and be happy to make that number up). I won’t bore you with the Math detail because I just look it up in Google hahaha. So the next time somebody will ask me in a friendly manner, how old I am I will say “I am 32% done”. I will really do that haha.

It makes me think what I have done in the first 32% like, did I just waste 32% of my life worrying about everything and not actually living the life I wanted? Or how can I make the remaining time to live the possible best life I want to have. And make people around me happy and feel loved.

I know some people will say it’s morbid, it’s like counting the remaining days of your life and it’s like you made a ticking bomb timer, but it’s not. It will be a reminder that the next time you are about to do something you don’t want, you will think should I waste my precious moment  doing that?

But there is a catch here. You have to make sure you will live up to 100%, means you have to be careful and to fight and not loose hope. It will also be nice if you exceed that life expectation, who doesn’t want to have a 110% or 150% of life or of something this beautiful? That is also why I updated my blog today, to make something I like and I love, I love to talk and share my stories, hence the name Cramming Daldalita, right?

Okay, Times up. Sorry for wasting some of your time reading my random ramblings, I hope you also see the meaning of that battery looking graphics in Nas shirt that I would like to buy.

And as Nas said, “See you tomorrow”!!

PS. if you would like to have the shirt, please check out this link Nas Shirt… Cheers!!

 

Inside My Kikay Kit…

The main purpose that I made this blog is to make amateur review for products that we can usually see in the drugstores and groceries, mapa-food, cosmetics, pampaligo anything you can find there.

Now, for starters I’ll show you things that I used. This entry is a quick review (pero mahaba sya, haha) for the make up that I have and mga abubot sa mukha inside my make-up kit. And most of these products you can see at Watson, groceries and dept. store.

Here is my simple and payak na make-up pouch, I got it for free when I bought a shampoo and conditioner from TRESemmè,

17424655_788778507941751_4172377559069436245_n.jpg

I don’t really used make-up a lot. Si face powder girl, mascara, kilay at lipstick lang ako (ayy teka ang dami naman pala nun). Pero yun lang talaga. And hindi din ako ganun ka knowledgeable sa make-up, I don’t even know the difference between a face powder, loose powder and foundation, para sakin isa lang sila hahaha (someone please enlighten me). Also I don’t know the use of a primer haha, alam ko pintura lang yun. So kung anong meron sa pouch ko yan lang talaga gamit ko, weather it’s going to the office, to the mall, date, business events. I just add eyeshadow if I go to the exhibitions and also a bb cream kung talagang pang-malakasan haha.

Going back, here are the things inside my pouch;

For my face
My Maybelline Satin Foundation – Of all the powders and foundation na nagamit ko, I like this one the most (mga drugstore brands lang din na test ko dati) kasi it’s so light and kahit walang anything under it kakapit sya & hindi sya mukhang Pam-Bu haha, I think It’s around PHP 400 I am not sure because I bought it  4 months ago and matipid ako gumamit haha. Also one of the good thing about this foundation is that it has SPF32++ sun protection so no more sunog and pekas. Below you can see the difference when applied, I think these photos don’t do justice since it was taken inside the room I’ll try to test it again with natural light next time ha.

Glam Works Bath and Body Essentials Peach Pink Lip and Cheek Tint- I bought it for PHP 75 lang in SM Dept. Store, it smell so sweet and nice. Maganda din ang texture nya a little bit oily/ creamy but it makes your cheek more buhay and will give you a healthy glow, hindi OA yung blush nya. I haven’t tried to use it as lip tint because I am not into pink lips.
As you can see in the photos there’s part of my hand that is a little bit pinkish it’s like that when  applied in the cheeks. Nice sya kasi di ka mukhang nasuntok haha, mukhang blooming ka lang. The only downside of this blush is that it is best applied with fingers, therefore it makes the content un-hygenic.

For my eyes
Daiso Eyeliner Gel- It’s good but not as good as the Maybelline one. My officemate used the Maybelline eyeliner it cost around PHP 400 if I’m not mistaken. However, this one cost around PHP 88,  It is also not smudge proof and water proof but it is very pigmented and soft that makes it easy to apply medyo may glittery effect din pala sya.,After it is dried nagiging smudge proof sya, I’ll show you in the  photo, I even spray alcohol on it and try to remove it on a soft force di pa rin sya nabura kagad. Kelangan pwersahan haha. It comes with an applicator, just keep the little plastic tube after opening it, it serves as a cap of the applicator. I like buying from Daiso since bukod sa cheap they have make-ups that are made in Japan and Taiwan which makes it safer, yun ay according sa paniniwala ko.

When applied                               After spraying alcohol and wiping with soft force

Bobbie Retractable Eyeliner in Medium Brown- Before I don’t really put anything on my eyebrows. Kelan ko lang na-discover ang “Kilay is Life” haha. Now, I am still trying products that will work on me and will make things easier for me to achieve my kilay goals. This is one of the products I use. It is cheap for PHP 150, it is a retractable eyebrow liner that comes with a spoolie on the other end. It is not smudge proof and water proof but is very pigmented and easy to blend.

Maybelline Fashion Brow 3D Brow and nose palette- Yung brow powder nya is good, easy to blend sya, tipid din sya kasi pigmented sya so konting kuskos lang okay na unless peg ng kilay mo eh si Snooky Serna ng Blusang itim hehe. What I have is the light brown shade. Also matibay din sya I dropped mine yesterday and got afraid na mabasag sya pero salamat naman at okay sya hehe (I’m also clumsy talaga). Yung wax portion naman nya I haven’t tried kasi i use the Bobbie eyebrow liner eh. And ang winner dito kahit umaga pwede ka mag nose-line ng hindi halata at di ka magmumukhang parrot!  I got this for PHP 300, If Im not mistaken, makakalimutin kasi ako sa presyo eh.

Daiso Eyebrow Gel- I like this one kasi it’s cheap like PHP 88 per pc, then it holds and color your eyebrow for a long time as long as hindi ka makiki-pyesta sa San Juan eh safe ka hehe. Pero even tho it’s not water proof sulit na sulit sya made in Japan din sya so medyo kampante kang gamitin sya.ang taba ng utak ng naka-isip nito haha

On My Lips – Swatches are attached 🙂

Nivea Lip Balm- I only used this when I was on Germany last November. Ang O.A kasi ng lamig dun and it will make your lips so dry. Anong say ko? It does the job like other lip balm I supposed plus it smell so nice.

Maybelline Creamy Matte- This one is amazing! It has the matte lipstick with the smooth glide. Plus really affordable at PHP 299, I have the Nude Nuance which is my favorite, it has little bit of pink undertone I think, but it is much realistic and appealing in their nude series. I heard people dubbed it as dupe for KLK Dolce K, I cannot attest in it since hindi pa ko nakakagamit nun I think it cost around PHP1,800 on a local reseller so wag na lang haha.

Next, I have is the burgundy blush. This one is the reddish brown goth looking lipstick. It is just hard to apply, dahil pag lumagpas sya and you wipe it magmumukha kang duguan haha.

Then, the Siren in Scarlet it is like the pinkish red lipstick na mas lamang yung red side nya.

Avon Perfectly Matte Wild Cherry- gusto ko din ito kasi isa ito sa lipstick na you can wear in the morning and in the evening. It is plum-maroon-brownish color. Ang lakas make-elegante ng kulay na ito.

Focallure Taupe- I bought it in Lazada for PHP 250, I am not sure bakit ko ito binili haha.The color is nice, but it’s not that long lasting, uminom lang ako ng tubig wala na haha

EB Advance LTD Liquid Lipstick
Fire Opal- A perfect red with bluish undertone, ang lakes makapag-papansin ng lipstick na ito haha! And it is so easy to apply because of the applicator ang lambot nya pramis!

Chocolate truffle- Ang Sarap ng pangalan ano? It is a solid brown lipstick, na malakas maka goth. And the same with fire opal ang dali nya i-apply.

Estee Lauder Pure Color  Long Lasting Lipstick / Rouge in Beige- Ang haba ng pangalan noh? Eto lang yung mahalia ko ng lipstick (meaning above PHP500) hahaha, nagkaroon din naman mako ng MAC na Ruby Woo pero nawala ko kaya ayun nadala na ko haha. Unfortunately etong Beige color na to, di sya bagay sakin. Ewan ko ba di pwede sakin yung mga barely there / pa tweetums na lipstick hehe. I tried the Magenta Matte lipstick ng EB before pumasok ako ng office na feel na feel ko tapos sabay sabi ng office mate ko mas bagay daw sakin yung mga vampy color ahaha atleast she cushion the blow diba! Anyway, narealized ko na mukha akong Bratz na doll pag ganun hahaha!

So yan, ayan lahat ng laman ng pouch ko haha!  Yung BB cream na gamit ko next time na lang, di ko kasi dinadala yun pang malakasan kasi yung eh!

Sa tagal naman ng pag aayos ko usually 20 minutes tops, I have a problem kasi in being punctual so kapag nag ayes mako rush. And my office mates can attest to this I can do full makeup kahit nasa sasakyan, di nga lang ganun kayos pero acceptable naman haha.

Dito naman tayo sa finish product haha! kala mo tinapa lang eh. Sorry sa background ko sa first photo pantry kasi namin yan eh.

My First Entry…

 

Really hindi ko alam ano yung first entry ko!
It’s my first time and hindi ko din alam kung may magbabasa nito.

By the way I am Ira, an almost 23 year old corporate slave/ Assistant to G.M of a European Machinery located in a sub-urban area of the Philippines.

I love reading blogs and reviews, so sabi ng friend ko I should make one because I am a very opinionated person, like lahat ng bagay may comment ako just like an average millennial haha..

I am also planning to do reviews for some products dito sa blog, mostly drug store products and items that you can find in the grocery that are affordable and kaya ng budget because I am known as a kuripot person. Kuripot and shoppingera in one (yes it’s possible). Also some segments like people in our office kung papayag yung ka-opisina ko haha and bag raids plus OOTD portion yung mga ganun.

I discovered blog reading while I was bored before going to the S.M so I tried  reading reviews about the products that I use, so dun na discover ko na bawal ako sa mga products na may “Mineral Oils” or any other oil based products specially on moisturizer data water based lang otherwise mag-kakaroon ako ng break outs.After that I discover that I can learn a lot of things in reading blogs, kasi mga opinion yun ng mag totoong tao, hindi mga artista na scripted choss!!

Now, on my blog name. Yes, I named it “CrammingDaldalita”

simply because sometimes I procrastinate a lot and at the end of the day I cram kasi hindi ko gingawa yung mga bagay na dapat kong gawin haha. Then the daldalita was a suggestion  of my officemate kasi ang daldal ko daw sobra! Anyway, I see it as a gift kaya nila ko nilagay sa sales hehe. I have an input kasi to most of the topic na ibibigay sakin eh.

By the way, the picture below is my bunso , “Taylor” is her name. I am not married yet and I don’t have kids, That’s why I treat her as my second baby, the panganay is my car Sentra. Yes, I treat them as my kids and I am weird like that haha!

Oh sige gotta go back to what I’m doing office hours pa kasi haha!

I check later what I have in my bag para ma review, at pagaaralan ko din how to use the word press free version di ko pa kasi masyadong gamay.

If there is anyone who read this blog entry, please leave a comment pang confident booster lang choss!!

P.S wag tayo magpaka-grammar nazi / spelling nazi ha, Love love love lang!
