How I cleanse my face

Just to let you know I have dry to normal,sensitive skin with a slight tendency of pimples/acne around my jaw area and sometimes on my cheeks and forehead. Dry areas usually on my cheeks.

When I'm really sleepy, tired and lazy to take my makeup off I usually just use some Makeup Remover Towelettes these two are my favorite ones (Ponds and Simple) it doesn't irritate my face and it's very gentle,smooth and gets rid of all my makeup.I feel so clean and refreshed afterwards. I usually buy them at walmart I think they're much more affordable over there.




*Side note: this is my attempt to do a double cleanse routine*

Now if I'm really really up for it and if ever I have some waterproof makeup like mascara or eyeliners on I use Jojoba Oil as a cleansing oil it's very safe and effective for me to get rid of the makeup that's really hard to come off (even if I used a towelette in the first place) and then I wash my face with water then use a dry paper towel or simply just use a wet papertowel.
bought this at amazon 

I mainly use this jojoba oil for cleansing although it has so many uses since it tends to break me out around my face if I use it as a moisturizer.



And then cleansing foam I have two at the moment to thoroughly cleanse my face!

Missha Citron Cleansing foam (day time)

This one I bought at koreadepart it has a nice citrus scent,refreshing but it can be a bit tight and drying afterwards.


St. Ives Green tea scrub (night time)



Clears blackheads and calms redness.
Oil-free salicylic acne medication.
100% natural exfoliants.
Sulfate free and paraben free.
Hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, and non-comedogenic.

I think this is a new product they just released I'm not sure but it's a new product to me I bought mine at walmart but you can also purchase it from amazon. At first I only tried to use it on my nose to see if it will get rid of my blackheads,massage it in for a couple of minutes with my fingers then washed off with water... it somewhat helped..my blackheads are less visible,my nose a little bit clear and the next day the blackheads aren't as bad as before but they're not at all gone either but when I used my cleansing brush during my next attempt it definitely helped and made a whole lot of difference! my nose is much more cleaner,blackheads almost gone!

I also bought this one at amazon it's super soft,gentle on the skin and affordable too!


I think as an anti acne and exfoliating cleansing foam it works better since it does contain salicylic acne medication so I used it all over my face the following night.A little bit goes a long way,a bit grainy (mayhaps due to the green tea) it's also very gentle on the skin, after washing it off with water my skin felt soft and not dry I guess the 100% natural exfoliants works. The smell is actually very clean and fresh the matcha(green tea) plus the salicylic is quite a good match with each other.

Overall I highly recommend all these products!

Fantastic 4 (2015) | Movie Review

Information Source: Imbd

Fantastic Four (2015)
PG-13 | 100 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi | 7 August 2015 (USA)

Four young outsiders teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe which alters their physical form in shocking ways. The four must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

Director: Josh Trank
Writers: Jeremy Slater (screenplay), Simon Kinberg(screenplay), 3 more credits »
Stars: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan |See full cast and crew »




My thoughts:

I like this one more than the other fantastic four (2005) movie because it's much more relateable their individual character stories,development,how they all met and came together as a team is nice. The cast itself they're pretty okay..not my favorite but they did pretty well doing their part.

Spoiler alert!

 And it's pretty weird for the main character to just go off somewhere and after one year still wearing the same clothes like seriously? there's not much progress in his part but the others are doing pretty well since they're in the facility. anyway...

I didn't really like Doom in the first place since he's the jealous type and think so highly of himself that's why I'm glad the fantastic four beat him pwahaha! I like Miles Teller as Reed  he's very smart and humble also have an awesome friendship with Jamie Bell as BenThe Thing.which I thought was unlikely in the beginning but totally great duo overall! as for Kate Mara as Sue  well I still quite have some mix feelings like her vs. Jessica Alba you know but Kate did her own version of Sue and I think it worked pretty well I like the music and pattern system of hers makes sense really haha! Kate's character now that I thought about it even more reminded me of Violet from the incredibles practicing her powers. Oh and Michael B. Jordan as Johnny (Torch) I still like Chris Evans but Michael did well trying to be a rebel and all that haha!

All in all 4 out of 5 stars I really liked this movie more than I thought I would. It's pretty good! I love this story even better than the first two old movies (2005-ish) I hope they'd follow up this series with much more bigger and better storylines/enemies!

My thoughts:

I've never heard of ant man til this movie haha the way his costume works is pretty cool along with some of the avenger story clash cameo role put together it was actually pretty sweet! the fight scenes are funny and awesome in a way especially the battle between ant man and the yellow jacket. Shrinking back and forth was truly fun to watch. The sub atomic theory was crazy and I wonder if he just pretended not to remember. As always I looked forward to Stan Lee's cameo and was really happy and surprised to see one of my favorite youtuber Anna Akana finally landed a role on the big screen! woohoo! Overall 4 out of 5 stars! it was funny,enjoyable to watch and I learned so many things about ant man he's awesome! the story's really nice! ^^

Rimmel Provocalips (730 Make your move) Vs Revlon super lustrous lipstick (460 Blushing Mauve) | Comparison #Dupe


Can you tell the difference?

At first I didn't and it took me a couple of months to notice and realized that they're almost the same color!

From the middle picture (wrist swatch)
-they color looked the same! the rimmel just a bit wet but not runny it also seems to have a slight shimmer like the Revlon below but on the lips there's no glitter whatsoever maybe just the light reflection

The Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick (460 Blushing Mauve)
has a more pinky tone color and I love this pearl finish it's not to shiny/shimmery and the formula is creamy and hydrating unlike the Rimmel Provocalips (730 Make your move) which is kinda lipgloss matte and a little bit drying on the lips over time also it is quite sticky!

With my lip swatch I didn't put the top gloss part on the rimmel that came along with it  just so I can see how similar they are on its own.

so the left side of my lips is actually Revlon while the right is Rimmel.From afar there seems to be no difference but when you look upclose you'll notice the slight pink tone on the left side (Revlon) while Rimmel quite shiny/glossy looking and neutral color. Both of them really can pass up as a natural look. With Rimmel though like what I said on my previous review it feels like paint.

So nowadays what I'd like to do with both of these I put the Rimmel first and then afterwards the Revlon so I can utelize both since they're kinda like the same especially when I feel like my lips are getting dry and don't want to put the gloss coz it doesn't really offer much help...I like to put the revlon since lipbalm like eos doesn't really work well with Rimmel paint like texture on the lips haha or sometime I put the Revlon then Rimmel to make it more long lasting either way I love both colors but if I were to pick only one I'd choose Revlon simply because of the finish and formula plus it doesn't make my lips dry although it doesn't last very long probably four hours max. then I have to reapply especially after eating.

Pricing:

They're both affordable and  of course the price varies where you buy them but they only differ slightly like a dollar or a couple of cents away from each other.

There you have it! I hope you find this helpful. Let me know in the comment section below if you have any questions and tell me what you like or hate about this post or what's your favorite lip product and all that jazz also don't forget to follow me on my social media sites so we can keep each other posted! ciao for now ^^

Nature Republic Snail Solution Mask Sheet| Skincare Review

The free sample I from my last purchase at Koreadepart looks like this but only contains 2,000ppm  


My thoughts: 

I love it! The mask fits my face quite well just one fingerbreath gap on my forehead since I have a large forehead haha anyway, I had it on my face for 15 minutes or so.I'm happy and surprised that there's a lot of essence soaked in the mask and essence remainders in the container that I practically put all over my hands,neck,arms and legs it's very hydrating,not sticky at all and it smells really clean,fresh and a bit nature like for me. It soothes my skin real good! I'd like to checkout their snail set line next since I feel like it would really suit my needs. Overall 5 out of 5 stars! Thanks for the sample Koreadepart!

One Punch Man | Manga & Anime Review


To be honest I don't really know how to describe this series haha I hope that video above would suffice for that is the reason why I tuned in and got hooked to this series in the first place it's so funny! I actually watched the anime first and then read the manga afterwards since there's only a few episodes out...either way I love both mediums.

I'll try to explain what this series is all about so...The main protagonist is Saitama (the one in the yellow outfit and cape) he manages to win all battles with only one punch.(hence one punch man get it? haha) This ability frustrates him since he can no longer feel the thrill and adrenaline of fighting a tough battle, which leads to him questioning his past desire of being strong. Along his hero journey he'll meet all sorts of characters and hopefully tough opponents that will revitalize him in which this story portray what it's like being a hero,what it takes to be one and so on... I hope you get what I mean that's just the gist of it haha ^^

My favorite character by far is Saitama he seems/looks average but he's definitely the real deal! he's so strong it's mind boggling!  and you'll know if an opponent is really strong if it can take Saitama's punches.At first I thought this series would be really lame with cliche/ironic jokes and characters that look a like from another anime series (aka bleach,don't get me wrong I love bleach) you'll definitely notice the resemblance :))


but this anime is such a huge reversal of all hero anime it's so badass in itself! not only Saitama seems average looking and strong he's also very nice,down to earth humble! that makes him super duper awesome!

I also like Genos he's good looking,strong,funny and a great disciple! as for Sonic well just like Genos said Sonic's name is so redundant (Sonic is the ninja from the video above) Sonic speed of sound sonic it's like calling the ball round circle ball or something like that it's hilarious! and there are so many other different characters I don't want to spoil you so make sure you check this series out!

Overall I'll give this series 5 out of 5 stars it's epic! pulled me out of my reading slump and it introduces me to all sorts of heroic characters and the storyline is pretty much amazing! I highly recommend it especially if you want a good laugh,something new and refreshing to enjoy!

My favorite Saitama look xD

Heneral Luna + some spoilers | Movie Review




Heneral Luna (2015)
Information Source: Imbd
R | 118 min | Action, History | 30 October 2015 (USA)
Set during the Philippine-American war, a short-tempered Filipino general faces an enemy more formidable than the American army: his own treacherous countrymen.





My thoughts:

The moment this came out I want to watch it so bad but it took awhile for it to be shown in different cinemas across the U.S.I really appreciated my friends for not posting any spoilers in any of their social media. All I heard before I watched this was all praise so I know it's gonna be good and I have really high expectations for this one.

 Anyway, I finally watched it last November 8,2015 and I have mixed feelings about it. I like how it's very well thought out, there's english subtitles available and whenever you're introduce to a character there's a mini name label  besides them so you'll know who they are. I love how funny it is, loaded with uncensored curses (filipino & spanish) , tons of words of wisdom and shows different sides of Antonio Luna along with other characters.  To be honest I have no idea who he is expect for the fact that he's a general that lead the army way back in the day so I find this film very enlightening and refreshing! I really enjoyed how this featured and highlighted Heneral Luna's good and bad side along with other characters and future heroes.

After watching this film I felt so irritated! mainly because of what happened to him!


Spoiler Alert!
I have this what ifs moment like...I think if he's a charismastic leader he can easily overthrow Aguinaldo or any adversaries also control his temper to avoid unnecessary things rumors just make it clean you know although he's not really a political guy just like Mabini said. And if only the soldiers just walked besides him instead of riding those carts that got stuck in the river I think 1 or 2 soldiers will suffice to push and help the cart come across while the others accompany Heneral Luna and the gang.


It took me quite awhile to move on actually I felt so sad for him and it's really nice to know his story.Overall it was definitely worth the watch! I'd like to give it 5 out of 5 stars it has been awhile since I watched such historical filipino film,great quality although if you don't have any background about the Philippine  history you might or might not get some of the happenings and who are the people involved there it can be a little be confusing for some like that part where Rizal got shot you know where the soldiers are almost made out of ink in flashback mode stuff like that but yeah It was very inspiring, mind opening and glad to see this is the Philippine's official entry to the Oscars I really hope and pray for it to win! looking forward to the other installment of this heroic series ^_^

Opposites Attract

I met a guy that looked like you
I know it's too good to be true
but he's like the exact opposite of you

I guess the saying's true
that there are people who look a like
Living in a different country and life

I feel like these sort of things only happens on TV/Movies
some doubts crossed my mind not gonna lie
I liked him way better as time pass by.

Endless Love

I wish you were here with me
as I lie wide awake
in the middle of the night

I miss our endless conversations
your presence
I miss you a lot!

Remembering how we met
and fell in love
that scene on repeat in my mind

I really wish you were truly here
and not just inside my head
to feel your warmth once again.
