Products I'm Trying Now: AKA Products You'll Be Expecting a Review About

Hi everyone! I know I've been MIA lately and I AM SO SORRY! Midterms were so tough, I felt like I was going to die, but now its all over so I can finally update this thing and keep you guys posted on what reviews I'll be making soon.

I'm really excited about this next batch because there are so many new things out there that I just want to try them all! Siiigh, if only money was not an option, but of course I just chose the few things that caught my eye and tried as much as possible to BUY FILIPINO!
So here are the newly-bought products:

1) Pond's Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam

This facial wash really caught my eye because its such a stand-out! Imagine, a black facial wash? I also have to admit that its the first time I've ever heard of a facial wash using activated carbon as an ingredient. I thought that was usually reserved for pore strips. I bought this especially because my blackheads are a BIG problem, so hopefully this will help.
What Pond's says:
New Pond's Pure White Facial Foam is formulated with Activated Carbon. The Activated Carbon is known to easily absorb and lift away dirt and impurities from skin surface and deep within pores. Cleanses your face thoroughly to reveal your natural pure white looking skin.
I got so excited that it's grayish!!! So it does have CARBON!

2) Maxi-peel Exfoliant Soap
I have to admit that I'm a Maxi-peel junkie. I love ALL their products and try to get anything on their line as much as I can. So far I've tried their lotion and their exfoliant facial cream which have proven to be quite good in making my skin clearer. After I saw Marian Rivera's billboard in EDSA saying "FROM BACK-NE TO BACKLESS", I wanted to try it!
So far I've been using the soap for a few weeks, and it has green exfoliating beads. It smells good but I've yet to see any results.

3) Garnier Light Overnight Whitening Peeling Cream
This peeling cream made me break out on my first 2 uses! I swear from totally clear skin to pimples in an instant. I wanted to try this because the facial wash was great but this one...well maybe if I give it a few more weeks we'll see how it works. 
What Garnier says:
The association of pure lemon essence and natural peeling fruit extracts to peel off dullness overnight and let whitening action diffuse. Wake up to a freash and fairer skin in the morning. 
I think it was a mistake to use it everyday so I just put it on every other day. Hopefully that's the right solution!

4) Belo Essentials Night Therapy Whitening Vitamin Cream
I remember buying this for only P55. This thing is super small, its only 20ml. But I've always wanted to try something from the Belo line so this was my choice after the product prior to this caused me to break out. I haven't really used this for so long to give a good judgment so let's give it a week for me to properly evaluate it.
What Belo says:
This nourishing vitamin night cream lightens skin safely in as little as 7 days with Dermawhite PLUS -- a combination of Glutathione, Kojic Acid, Gigawhite, and Skin Vitamins. It contains fruit extracts that make skin feel soft and smooth.
That's it for now guys! I hope you're looking forward to my reviews!


  1. can the maxi peel exfoliant soap be used in the face?

  2. I don't think so,but maxi peel came out with a facial wash, I think you should try that!

  3. How is the maxi peel exfoliant soap so far?

  4. hey there! can't really say it made a huge difference for my skin, but i liked the scent of the soap.


Anything on your mind? Let me know!:)
