Weekend Food Trip at: Crisostomo

Whenever we have time in our hands and we are itching just to get out of the house, Nuvali Tagaytay is always our choice because...just because we're boring that way!  *hahaha*

Thanks to Mr. AMW he actually booked an overnight stay at my favorite hotel at the area called Seda Hotel.  It was for our post-anniversary celebration and this momma couldn't be happier!

And since we're boring that way, we also go to our favorite Filipino restaurant around the area called Crisostomo -- funny how we haven't tried dining at Crisostomo in Manila but thrice in Tagaytay!

Of course, we obviously went for the "usuals" too because when we're on vacation, our brains are in automatic shut-off so we'd rather go for what we usually order so no brain cells are wasted!

It was saltier than the last time we had this, it was perfect the first 2 times but with extra garlic rice, you don't have to worry at all!

Tiny Buds Rice Baby Products Review

The first time I blogged about Tiny Buds products, I already knew about the brand as it was Kyle's FIRST toothpaste brand!  Little did I know that they have a wide range of products and so far, I've used them all up and I'm impressed.

Then, their product line expanded and I've tested their Rice Baby Powder and loved it so much I purchased more for my dad (who's bedridden from stroke) and every time I massage his back, I tease him that he's my baby too!

So the brand is very close to my heart!  So when I saw their new line of Rice Baby products, I gave it a go right away!

Tiny Buds Rice Baby Bath (Php175.00) is a low foaming wash.  I love the mild baby scent and it is paraben free so my son's skin is soft and smooth after every wash.  

Tiny Buds Rice Baby Lotion (Php185.00) on the other hand is what I use, Kyle is not a lotion user but the mom is, so to make sure my son is safe, I use baby products on my skin so kissing and hugging is widely welcomed!

And of course, my review still stands on the Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder, feel free to read full review HERE.

Teen Crush Problem Glow Cushion Review

Remember my first Teen Crush Review?
I'm not yet done!  The brand has a lot of exciting products to try for beauty lovers like YOU and ME!

When I first unboxed this and gave my first impressions on #AMWIgStories , a lot of you messaged me right away to ask me about this "glowing product".  Yes, you can actually see through IG stories on how it gave my skin that ultimate impact.

So, are you ready?

COSRX One Step Original Clear Pad review

If you follow me on #AMWIGStories , you probably heard me rave about Dermatory Azulene Gauze Pads  - I swore by them because these pads helped lessen skin irritations and because of the said product, I can easily review one skincare product to another!

When COXRX One Step Original Clear Pad landed on my desk one day (well not really, I attended their launch couple of months ago!)  , I've heard so many raves about these pads (the Pimple pads to be exact) and I've seen fellow beauty enthusiasts went crazy hoarding these during my most recent Korea trip.  Finally, I have the original version so I gave it a go!

Oil and excess sebum control just got easier. The award-winning COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads are pre-soaked in betaine salicylate and willow bark water to chemically exfoliate without drying out your skin. Active ingredients penetrate deeply into pores to dissolve oil and dead skin cells, which help in controlling breakouts. Not only are they good for the face but also recommended for blemishes on the chest and back.Includes 70 patches

That One Shadow Look

"I don't have time in the morning!"
That's the second reason why a lot of my AMW readers do not wear eyeshadow!  First one would be: "I don't know how!"

Don't worry, I KNOW how to apply eyeshadow but you always see me in this type of eye makeup application, I call this the "One Shadow Look".  And the thing is, I don't even have that extra 1 minute to blend my powder eyeshadow with a brush on some days (because sleep is life!)  so, I leaned towards to cream shadow sticks and it has to be waterproof!

Tested really well by yours truly, my favorite brand Make Up For Ever's Aqua Matic is my go-to eyeshadow for those days I just need a wash of color on the eye area!  This is also a perfect technique for monolid friends!

Aqua Matic is a waterproof and smudgeproof eye shadow that comes in an automatic retractable pencil. Thanks to its integrated sharpener the tip is always sharped as desired. Its ultra gliding formula is easily blendable just after application, offering an intense and even coverage with no transfer on the upper eye lid.  A feather weight formula for maximum effect! Aqua Matic is available in 10 shades: from classical to vibrant pop colors.
