Mario Badescu Facial Spray Review

I have a new guy... His name's Mario. 

I've always been on a hunt for a perfect face mist. And I think the hunt is over because I have finally found the one. It's Mario Badescu's Facial Spray with aloe, herbs, and rose water. Retails for Php445 at Rustans Shang-rila Mall. Mario Badescu's skincare range has been around for ages and ages ago.. Since 1967 to be precise. It became popular because of it's simple and natural ingredients and when other celebrities went gaga over it.

I've been using this for like over a month now and I use it as my 'booster spray' at night and in the morning after I wash my face.. This relives the dryness and brings back the moisture into my skin! This works wonders.. I have never found a facial mist that can plump up my skin in an instant! It says that it can also be used as a setting spray for makeup which I sometimes do.. And it gives a more natural dewy healthy looking skin. This is very versatile and always comes in handy.

Mr. Park's Bread and Cake Cafe (The first visit impression)

At one fine morning, I decided to try this little korean bread and cake cafe at ortigas (near sapphire condo) after my bank appointment. I've always seen this as I am currently handling The Sapphire West account. The cafe was small and cozy looking so I gave it a try..
I was so amazed by their cake selections! It was so many and I really really admire the cake decorations. Kinda reminds of the Tous Les Jours but their cake (Mr. park's) was more elegant looking and just pretty eats!
One thing though, they didn't put prices on their cakes which is kind of a bummer.
My favorite one!! So cute this cake!!! Gah!

Teasome date with Andi! :)

I've tried this new Teasome place at Sta. Lucia last night with my friend Andi. The thing that attracted us to this place was their classy and inviting interior. It was very cozy and classy looking.  At first, we thought they probably serve High end tea or really hardcore ones that comes as loose tea leaves because the vibe was kind of like that. I didn't bother taking pics of the place itself as I went there for purely chatting.. but then I think the place was worth of a blog post so let's just give it a whirl.

The TEA Menu:
I personally think that their Teas are fairly priced. 

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer (First Impression Review)

I have finally jumped into the bandwagon and actually bought the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer! I've always been skeptical about this product but the same time really really curious. 

I've seen this a thousand times through beauty youtuber before but it got really popular here in the Philippines recently. I couldn't get my hands on it as I find some of the online shops sell this ridiculously expensive! I almost bought it at my recent trip to bazaar but I still couldn't justify the price Php480-650.. So I waited and waited.. And finally! I have found an online shop that sells this for a really cheap price!!!  See, there is beauty in waiting. Haha
It says on the packaging that this instantly erases dark circles and fine lines. Also visibly diminishes puffiness! I also heard that this doesn't sit on their crease line or fine lines.
I am not sure how many shades they offer but I opt for the brightener with pink undertone as I have fair skin. I was kind of discerning between getting the light or the brightener one at first but I decided to get this. Maybe I'll get the light shade next time.. Who knows? Maybe next week! 
I love that it's a twist thing to dispence the product. Also, it's so fluffy I'm gunna die!! lol
