Review: POND’S CLARANT B3 & REJUVENESS ANTI-WRINKLE CREAM

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday. About me, I’m grateful to God for everything today.

Today, I am just going to share my number one and all-time facial skincare products from POND’S (you can find them at your local Walmart store). I started using POND’S products back when I was still in the Philippines over ten years ago and I fell in love with it! I experienced great results using these products since then, so, I am not looking for a replacement at all.

How I Used Them?

I applied them on my face and neck twice a day alternately. Example: Today, I applied the Clarant B3 on my face and neck after shower or cleansing and before going to bed. But you can use it daily though. I just preferred using it every other day. By the way, Clarant B3 is a dark spot correcting cream. The following day, I applied the Rejuveness Anti- Wrinkle Cream. It helps tighten the skin on your face for firmer younger-looking skin. One solid reason why I’m sticking to these products.

POND’S CLARANT B3

  • Ideal for normal to dry skin.
  • Dermatologist tested.
  • Won’t clog pores.

CLARANT B3 is formulated with vitamins B3 and C. This daily moisturizer evens skin tone in 2-4 weeks and visibly diminishes the appearance of dark spots (that’s why I love this product).

POND’S REJUVENESS ANTI-WRINKLE CREAM

  • Dermatologist tested.
  • Won’t clog pores.

REJUVENESS is formulated with AHAS (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and COLLAGEN. Visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in just two weeks, leaving skin firmer and younger-looking. You can apply this product twice daily.

If you haven’t used any of these two products from POND’S yet, you should probably give any of these a try. And when you do, I would love to hear your feedback.

REVIEW: MY LORAC MEGA PRO 4 EYESHADOW LOOK #1+SWATCHES

NORDSTROM.com

Hello everyone! How’s your day? I hope you had a wonderful day. Today, I am going to share my new favorite eyeshadow palette. Lucky me, it was on sale when I got it. When I received it, the first thing that came to my head was “I don’t want to ruin this pretty thing”. What I meant was, I hesitated using it because it’s too pretty and I want it to stay untouched. However, we-ladies (or anybody who loves makeup) know that’s not going to happen. I tried it for the very first time and to be honest, for the price, it did not disappoint me.

THE COLORS

It has such good colors. My Favorite colors so far are Spice and Blackberry. These two colors go really well with my skin tone.

Textures

It has a soft, powdery texture and it blends seamlessly.

What I Don’t Like

  1. The first thing I don’t like about this palette is the pans. They are smaller than I thought.
  2. The shimmers don’t stay on my eyelid.
  3. Not enough pigmentation.

[ REVIEW ] WET N WILD MEGAGLO MAKEUP STICKS: HIGHLIGHT & CONCEAL + SWATCHES

For quick makeup days, I would highly recommend Wet n Wild Makeup Sticks from Walmart, especially the “conceal” makeup stick. This “conceal makeup stick is my new best friend. I’ve been using this for over three months now. So far, I’m happy with the result and how it quickly conceals some red spots on my face with just a few applications. I used this “conceal” stick as my face foundation alone and eyelid primer. Adding a little blush on my cheeks and eye shadows, and I’m done. Hey, it works! For me, this stick is a must have especially for busy moms. I actually carry this in my purse all the time as well.

About the highlighter one, I have nothing negative to say. It gives my face a nice glow! It comes in ten different shades.

  1. Call Me Maple
  2. Flora Majority
  3. Follow Your Bisque ( This is “conceal” shade I am using )
  4. Hustle & Glow
  5. Nude For Thought
  6. Oak’s On You
  7. Peach Bums
  8. When The Nude Strikes ( This is the highlighter I am using )
  9. Where’s Walnut
  10. You’re A Natural

I’m really impressed how effective these sticks are, and for the price, I can’t let these two pass.

My Daily Makeup Products + Reviews

Hello everybody! How are you all? I’m hoping everybody is doing great. Today, I’m going to share my favorite makeup products for my daily use. A high school friend of mine asked me what makeup products I am using. Mostly, Walmart, Target, Dillard’s and Victoria’s Secret products. Okay, let’s start, shall we?

Daily Makeup Products
My Daily Makeup Products

WET N WILD MEGALO MAKEUP STICK 

I’d rather forget my cup of coffee, but not this makeup stick. This stick gives me naturally flushed cheekbones and glowing complexion. Sometimes, when I’m in a hurry, I just use this product alone. For under twenty dollars, this stick is so worth it!

COVERGIRL CLEAN MATTE

This oil control liquid foundation #535 is by far the best liquid foundation. This product is made with ultra-light oil-absorbers that control oil, and conditioners that help prevent dryness on your face. Also, it won’t clog your pores. That’s the best part!

WET N WILD MEGALO CONTOURING PALETTE ( Caramel Toffee ).

Obviously, I’m almost out. It’s time to get a new one, lol. Gosh, this product is my favorite contouring product. As you can see the image above, I really need a new one! This duo contouring powders give me a flawless sculpted face within just a minute. Sometimes, it doesn’t even take a minute to do it using this product. The lighter color is for highlights and the darker one is to define. If you haven’t used this duo yet, you should at least try. I’m sure you’re going to love it.

E.L.F HIGHLIGHTING POWDER

This is my most favorite shimmer highlighting powder. It helps me achieve that photo-ready finish look. This product is under ten dollars only and it lasts a long time.

Powder makeup products
Contouring powder, highlighter, and eye shadow palletes.

L’OREAL LA PALETTE NUDE

Creating a sophisticated eye look is my fave thing. I used lighter colors as base on my lower and upper eyelids. With ten high impact pigments and three shadow finishes, I always get that look I want.

MILANI EVERYDAY EYES EYESHADOW

I always use this metallic eyeshadows over my base on my eyelids to add a little dramatic look. This product is perfect for eye contouring and highlighting with an extra dramatic look after. The shades are richly pigmented and I just love it!

EYE SHADOW STICKS SET

I’m loving this set. It’s perfect!

Mug isn’t just for coffee.

EOS LIP BALM

This is my everyday lip balm. My lips dry fast in winter, and this lip balm hydrates and nourishes my lips.

VELVET MATTE LIP STAIN

This lip stain is a must have. I get a lot of compliments all the time ( not bragging ). If you want a full-coverage matte finish and lasting effect, this is it!

Now, I’m gonna stop right here and goodnight to all.

Xoxo, Ester
