Now I am tagging everyone who wants to answer this! :)
I'd love to hear from you guys!
Spill the beans!


  1. Great post i love it
    i was going 2 tag u btw lol

  2. WOW...
    you took ur time to answer all these questions?? hehe..
    it's quite informative..
    I was going to get the CLinique's liquid facial soap.. are they good??
    in terms of getting rid of traces of make up?? but not drying out ur skin like crazy???

    wow.. love ur last package from Toma

  3. i want to get my hair done...does getting it bonded(?) damage it at all? how does that work?
    my hair used to be very straight idk what happened :(

  4. Wow, another Clinique fan. Yay! :p

    Thanks for doing the tag :)

  5. Beautyaddict1one1, thanks, it's nice to have done this tag :)

    Purple snowflake, pretty girl! :P Yes, i did take some time doing this! lol but it's good, I enjoyed this. Well the Clinique Liquid soap is mild and I am nearing to finishing up the whole bottle :( I plan to repurchase because it's very mild, I don't have any allergies or itchiness anymore. Can't you ask for samples? Give this product a try first before buying the whole bottle!

    Aireen, if your hair is just "wavy" and ok, do not rebond it anymore. I do advise not to rebond it because it gets expensive to manage it. You have to do monthly treatments to take care of your hair as rebonding treatment really is a very strong chemical treatment. And if your hair grows, it honestly will look a bit weird having half of it super straight and half of it wavy again. Having a super straight hair at start and now having it wavy does have to do with the change of weather, hair products, etc..I suggest not to fight with your hair (i've been doing it many many years) and I ended up damaging it more. Work with your hair! If it gets wavy, work with a wavy hair :) Just make sure to test on the hair products you're using, maybe it's too strong for you! Tell me how it goes ok?

    Tine, I KNOW! When I read your tag, I can see we both use the same Clinique products :) Thanks for tagging me, I enjoyed it

  6. yay for loreal makeup remover!

    I also use Fasio 3D mascara but its such a pain to get off! But loreal makeup remover does the job

  7. Hi! I was just wondering, where do you get your nail art pen from? Available ba ito sa SM? (Nasa Visayas ako, so I'm hoping that they have it here, too =()

  8. i love clinique's 3 step system! it's the only thing that doesn't dry out my face :)

  9. You have so many expensive products!... lol~ So you're that rich... haha j/k :P

    You know how it feels looking at food post when you're full. It's nice huh? ;)

  10. Elizabeth, yay to all of us L'oreal makeup remover user! :) More affordable and the best part? It works!

    Anonymous, hi, no..nail art pens are not sold in SM malls, I have mine ordered pa talaga. If you want to order too, leave me an email coz I have friends who are ordering too!

    Lily, another Clinique 3 step program user! *high 10!*

    Alyssa, NO NO NO I am not using all expensive products, everytime I buy products, I calculate base on the quantity of the product. Like my CLinique 3 step program, it is more expensive compared to other "cheaper brands" but this one is huge and it lasts 6 mos (facial wash) and the a year for the toner and moisturizer :)

  11. Yay, I use the same L'Oreal makeup remover. I quite like it myself but I am always switching things up. And yay for the same lip balm.

  12. when i was younger, i would get use skincare and m/u from clinique. that's only because my aunts and all my mom's friends use that line, and they give me the freebies. *sigh* you've been raving aboout P&J, makes me wanna try em out. but to my wallet's luck, no counters around.

  13. psychoexgf, oohh you like kiehls too? I love it! but I'm not consistently using my bad !

    Jiejie, I have been raving so much about P&J right? sorry :( can't help it! their products are really good..just pricey wait for sales! I always buy when they are on sale! I'm a cheapo who won't buy full priced items! :P

  14. oh wow! you have very good (and expensive) taste! hahahah!

    imma do this soon! :)

  15. Sab, nah! you haven't seen other people's stuffs pa! hahaha I am just yours! can't wait to check yours and tell you that you have expensive taste too :P

  16. Hi twin, how did you like the Clinique's Muisture Surge Extra Thirsty Skin Relief??

  17. Hi Twin, Clinique's MOisture Surge Extra Thirsty SkiN Relief is THE BOMB for me!!! I had worst case of dry skin before I used this and I've read rants and reviews about it. My aunt came back from Canada and she gave me a trial size, would you believe the first night I used it ? I woke up with better skin??? (NO JOKE). So I went to the mall and bought full SIZE ASAP! The packaging isn't great though coz it's like a HUGE mouth and grabbing a couple with your fingers isn't hygienic, so I have this mini spoon, transfer it to my "sample sized" bottle to make it more hygienic. It works so well for me. NOT oily at all! and the finish is just great!!!

    Thanks tracy! :D

  18. I love Clinique's Moisture Surge Extra Thirsty Skin Relief! :D the Clarifying lotion doesnt work on me anymore :(

  19. Nic Nic, i have heard stories about the Clinique 3-step program working so well but after you finish the first batch, the 2nd time you use the set just don't work like the first time no more....OH NO!!! I wish that won't happen to me coz I hate to hunt for new facial products AGAIN! lol


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
