Review: BeauuGreen Eye Patch

July 7, 2017
Oh, sleep, how I missed you! And what I miss equally is my bright eyes sans eyebags and undereye circles! Thanks to BeauuGreen Hydrogel Eye Patch, I have a shot to getting rid of these bags and circles.

BeauuGreen is a Korean brand specializing in skincare masks and eye patches. They are known for their Hydrogel Eye Patches that are enriched with essences that penetrate deep inside the skin to supply nutrients to the sensitive eye rims. It's said to restore hydration and elasticity.

I've got to try their Sea Cucumber & Black Hydrogel Eyepatch variant that is said to be firming. The other two variants are Coral & Aqua (hydrating) and Collagen & Gold (anti-wrinkle). There are a couple of eye patches in the pot soaked in nourishing essence that provides moisturizing and calming effects to the skin around the eyes. As this eye patch provides superior skin adhesion, it allowed me to be productive even while wearing it.

How to use:
1. After washing face, tone the skin around eyes up with a toner.
2. Take the patch out of the pot using a spoon and apply the eye patch to desired area of your face.
3. Leave on for 20~30 minutes and let remaining essence absorb into the skin with gentle patting.

I can't speak much about the moisturizing effect of this patch but I definitely instantly felt some calming effect on my eye area. I also saw not much of a difference on my eye bags. A couple more of wearing these and it might just do the job.

BeauuGreen Eye Patch can be purchased at BSKOS Philippines Facebook page at P1,680.00.

Sun Protection that is Eres Tu

July 7, 2017
If there's one thing I miss on my pregnancy, it's the luminous skin it temporarily gave me. Now, not only is my skin back on being unpredictable, I now have to worry about early signs of aging due to well, my age! Just as I was researching what I need to get my skin back in its younger condition, Eres Tu sent a few of their sun protection products as it arrived Manila through Watsons. And as I always say, sun protection is the one thing you can't skip when it comes to skincare!

Thanks for this summer must-have loot, Watsons!

What makes these products from Eres Tu special? Here's what you need to know:


With Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, this BB cream works like Botox to eliminate signs of aging. The Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 in the formula causes reduction of fine lines like crows feet and laugh lines upon continued use but does not provide instant muscular relaxation as botox. It also acts as a makeup base as it instantly covers blemishes and skin imperfections. Lightweight and non-greasy, it's the ideal sun protection you can wear comfortably every day against UVA and UVB rays. 

I've personally tried this and here's my experience:

The texture is definitely light and more like liquid than cream. It only has one shade but is said to adapt to any skintone after fifteen minutes. 

Upon application, I got a bit scared as it appeared two shades fairer than my skintone. Though after waiting for just three minutes, it gradually blended into my natural color. Application was a breeze using just my fingertips. I was impressed on how it immediately covered my face's dark spots, even that pesky pimple on my chin! It evened out my skintone. It can serve as a primer for others but for me, it's already the light foundation I needed. 

After application of the BB cream, I just patted my face with a bit of translucent loose powder to set it and did my usual makeup routine. I checked my face back in an hour and successfully, no creases! 

Evened out my skintone with this BB cream with Botox effect. Bye bye fine lines! Hello freshness!


Rich in Beta Glucan that restores skin vitality, this multipurpose BB Cream has micro-fine mineral powder that perfectly evens out skin surface, color, tone, and instantly conceals open pores to a smooth finish.

SUN SPF 50+ PA+++ | P599.00

The non-sticky, greaseless, and non-tacky feel of this SPF 50 sunscreen is what I'd recommend for sunny days in the beach and when doing outdoor sports. It's water-proof formula can last from 6 to 12 hours while containing a high dosage of Beta Glucan to boost moisture.

You may also opt to try their other day creams in cute sealable sachets (at just P99.00!) that's perfect to tote around anywhere you go. 

Eres Tu is available in all Watsons outlets and SM Beauty Stores nationwide.
