College girl Budget friendly beauty stuff (Moisturizing Stuff)

Okay soo~ I must urge this saying of mine... "SKIN! SKIN! SKIN!" before you buy those pretty pretty makeup stuffs... you must take care of your most precious SKIN! Don't neglect it or your bad skin condition will get worse. ;) so... today :D I will show you my moisturizing stuffs~ LOL! here we go! (/^o^)/

#1 My Skin Lotion: NIVEA Extra Whitening Cell Repair & Protect Body Milk

Opinion: I've been using this body lotion for almost 2 years now and I'm still loving it! :) It keeps my skin radiant and smooth... and it also prevents my skin on darkening. :) 
Usage:  I use this twice a day~ after bath and before going to bed.
- it's not sticky after you put some on your skin.
- lovely smell~ :)
- affordable! :) I bought the 125ml bottle it costs like 139php(available @ Watsons and Supermarkets  here in the Philippines)
BAD :(
- none :)
RATE: 8.5/10 may not be the best whitening lotion but it's budget friendly :)

#2 My Facial Moisturizers
- there are two brands of facial moisturizer that I use daily :)


iWhite Aqua Moisturizing Cream
- I indicated the details and review of this moisturizer on my previous blog post you could read it here ==>(
Opinion: this is water-based so it's best using it during the day. Your skin wouldn't be oily~ :)
My skin is a combination of dry and oily~ my T-zone is the oily part and my cheeks are kinda dry~
PRICE: 22php/sachet(available @ Watsons & Mercury drug stores here in the Philippines)
RATE: 8.5/10 --- it is a must try facial moisturizer :) and really effective!


Nivea Creme
- I'm really new with this moisturizer... I've been using this for I think two months now... I saw my friend using it and she said that she uses it before she goes to sleep. sooo I gave it a try :)
Opinion: this moisturizer is so oily~ so it's really best using during night time. I don't recommend that you also apply it on your nose if it's oily~ 
When I wake up in the morning my skin feels moisturized :) soo I'm kinda loving this moisturizer.
Price: I think this costs like around 175php? It's the medium sized one :) I think the smaller size costs around 70php... but I think it's best to buy the medium sized one 'cause it is more budget friendly and I'm still using it for like 2 months now and I haven't bought another one~ ;)
- well I like waking up in the morning feeling my face is really moisturized. So thumbs up for that :)
- I've been using it for 2 months now and I haven't bought a new one. :) really practical :)
BAD :(
- it's hard to use it when you apply it with your's really sticky and oily so I use this  pack spatula from ETUDE HOUSE(69php)
about the spatula: I know the price is kinda not worth buying but it's really safe for your skin~ the spatula's surface is really smooth :) really great for the skin. :)

RATE: 7.5/10 --- not the best moisturizer that I have but for budget purposes... it is a must try product. :)

#3 My Body Soap: Dove Beauty Cream Bar

(photo source:

Opinion: I'm using this soap for almost 2 years now :) and it never failed me! :D Well I really think this is a soap that most ladies use... :) am I right? xD
Price: 55php(available @ Watsons & Supermarkets) --- this is the large size one :)
RATE: 9/10 --- the best soap I'm using so far :)

#4 My Body Scrub: A Bonne Spa Milk Salt

yeahhhh~ I'm kinda lazy....xD LOL!

SOO... yeah! that's about it :) That is all the moisturizing stuff I use :) and are all my own opinions...and I know my skin is not that really perfect but taking care of your skin is VERY VERY important! My reviews on these products might vary to some of you :) well I'm just sharing some great products to yah~ ;)

College Girl budget friendly BEAUTY stuffs + REVIEW(repost from my tumblr blog)

Hey gals :) well I just want to share something I usually buy at Watsons which are really budget friendly when it comes to us girls whom are still students most likely girls here in the PHILIPPINES ;p soo here it goes... :)
(sorry bad photo :p took the photo using only my phone's camera)

Let's start with A BONNE Spa Milk Salt (Php 75, Watsons) I've been using this for like 6 months now but I stopped for 2 months cause I haven't been able to buy because I was busy at school. xD
About A BONNE Spa Milk Salt:
is a skin whitening and slimming product.
- with Milk Formula and natural spa salt benefits.
- provides nourishment to your skin with Pure Milk, Dermawhite and Allantoin.
- removes dirt deposits and dead skin cells from your body giving you a new and radiant skin.
- Made in Thailand
- Best in using for Scars from backnes, Bikini Line and Armpits.
my opinion---
- well I don't know about the slimming part which was included on the description LOL~ I think I didn't noticed it... xD
- I usually use it once a week since it's like an exfoliant. :)
- I noticed that my skin is more moisturized and smooth. :)
- lightened my knees and elbows :)
- it smells nice~ milky~ xD
BAD :(
- none :)
RATE: 9/10

I White Masks and I White Moisturizing Cream(Made in Korea)

1.) I White Whitening(Face) Pack (Php 22/per sachet, available @ Watsons & Mercury Drug stores)
- this pack is good for removing whiteheads and blackheads, it also whitens skin and keeps your skin firm and radiant looking. You can use it 2-3 times a week.
- I noticed that I don't breakout too much and my skin looks smooth and Radiant. :D
- it's very cheap and effective :)
BAD :(
- Well I think there's nothing negative about the product. :)
RATE: 8.5/10
2.) I White Nose Pack (Php 18/per sachet, available @ Watsons & Mercury Drug stores)
- this pack is different from the face pack and it is specially made for the nose. So if you're thinking that the face mask also includes the nose... well it is not... :/ anyway this nose pack well... obviously removes whiteheads and blackheads.. LOL :)
- it lightened my nose cause back then my nose were darker than my face's skin :/ and it really removes whiteheads more effectively... well blackheads are really hard to remove but it really does remove quite a bit of those nasty blackheads...
- it's very cheap and effective :)
BAD :(
- Well I wish that it could be more effective on removing blackheads... :(
RATE: 7.5/10
3.) I White Moisturizing Cream (Php 22/per sachet, available @ Watsons & Mercury Drug stores)
- is a water-base moisturizer.
- revitalizes and improves skin condition, protects skin against cellular damage and premature aging , maintains elasticity and firmness of the skin and leaves a cool and refreshing feeling.
- it's good for using during the day cause' it is water-based :)
- the description of the product is true :)
- it's very cheap and effective :)
BAD :(
- nothing! xD
RATE: 8.5/10
I was eager to buy these new Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balms when I saw it on their facebook page ;p cause' it's has a hint of color :) and I thought the color names of the Lip Balms were cute :)

(I got the photo on their Facebook page xD, photo credits to Maybelline Philippines' Fb page :D)

Maybelline BABY LIPS COLOR Tinted Lip Balm(Php 89, available @ Watsons) has 4 available colors which are Pink Lolita, Berry Crush, Cherry Kiss and Rose Addict. I got Pink Lolita and Rose Addict.

I love Maybelline Lip Balms :) it never failed me to have moisturized lips. I remembered buying the ones that they released a long time ago but these BABY LIPS Lip balms are the best :) I also got BABY LIPS GLOW .
it's tinted so... it is best just to create natural looking colored lips. :)
- very moisturizing... cause' here in the Philippines we have a very hot weather. Usually you'll have chapped lips because of the heat but these lip balms proved their effectiveness. :)
- affordable :)
- cute colors xD
BAD :(
- well I don't have any negative comments about the lip balms... :)
RATE: 9/10
Well I hope I have shared enough info about the products that I usually use but these are the few ones that I have...and these are all my opinions... :) I'll blog some of the products that I haven't mentioned here on this post well I'll post it some other time...
If you have any questions or comments about this products just let me know ;)
