Beauty: I'm lovin'...

Just some of the things, beauty-wise, that I've been using lately that have been making me happy. Let's start with some:

Japan Swag

When my dad said he was going to vacation in Japan and would I like anything I immediately pulled out a list of beauty stuff...most of which I became interested in because of Xiaxue. Say what you will but girl's a beauty addict and I trust her recs! Here's what my dad managed to get:
Hada Labo 
Here's what Xiaxue has to say about Hada Labo. It's a toner but instead of being astringent like old-school Ate Vi Eskinol it's mild and is supposed to help retain moisture. I use this after facial wash and before applying Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture. It works nice but occasionally if it's too humid I tend to break out, so I only use this when the weather is quite dry. Speaking of facial wash...

Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash
Again, another Xiaxue recommendation...and I can't resist something called Marshmallow Whip! It's a nice, mild foam that cleanses gently without drying out my skin. Just in time as my Celeteque facial wash ran out and this is a nice alternative.

Biore Cleansing Oil
This came free with the marshmallow whip and is a nice way to remove make up. Here's a nice review.

Proudly Pinoy

Leyende sells proudly Philippine handmade natural and organic beauty products.

I got this La Dolce Natural Muscovado Sugar Exfoliant as a gift and it's a great facial scrub once or twice a week, just for sloughing off dead skin cells and getting a deep cleanse. (Review)

Best thing? It smells absolutely yummy, like lemon squares or calamansi tarts. Seriously have to stop myself from eating this every time I use it!
