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.

Soothies Foot Care Products Reviewed

 How many of you takes care of your feet aside from your face?

Not a lot huh?
I'm one of them!  Guilty as charged!  The most I've done was during the time my heels were cracking from going barefoot at the play area several times a day, so I ended up putting petroleum jelly on my heel area wearing socks at night before I go to bed.

That did not make the cut.  My feet sometimes look like it does not belong to a Beauty Blogger (there I said it!)  Embarrassing yet true, so thankfully, because of the launch of new Foot Care line called Soothies - I was forced to take care of my feet and after giving this a try for more than a week, I think I've found a good reason to start taking care of them - consistently!

"Peace Out" BLK Review

Peace Out!
That's what we all say in the 90's in rap music and well, trying hard cool students like yours truly *lol*

And who would have thought several decades after, we will be celebrating that era of Boy Bands, Girl Groups and brown lipsticks?

Ohhh, I love brown lipsticks!  And when BLK launched #BLKtothe90s Collection, I gave one of my favorite lip color from the collection a try immediately.

It's All About Giving Today (and the days to come!)

In the AMW-household, you'll find a LOT of Unilever products, so when I was invited by Unilever to join their Unilever x Shopee All About Giving campaign (a special e-commerce partnership between the 2 for Holiday), I had to be there!  And what made the event even more special?  The fact that I can listen to the Shopee's First Christmas Ambassador - Jose Mari Chan sings live!  (Kinikilig ako just talking about it!)

In today's event, I was able to watch Ben & Ben singing Live onstage!  I've known this group when I watched them on TV and guess what?  Their voices and talent are even more amazing in PERSON!  I mean I was already impressed when I watched them on TV but the goosebumps were real!

Heard their new single "Branches" which will be available on Spotify!
