Review: Beautycounter Rejuvenating Set Skincare & No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask

Reading Time: 6 minutes

Hi everyone! 😀

If you follow me on Instagram, perhaps you’re already familiar with Beautycounter as I’ve mentioned about it several times. So yessss, it’s about time to introduce you to this brand and the products through a complete review! 😉

I received the sample products from Crystal last month, but as I was also in the process to try on some new products from a local skincare, it took time for me to finally try out the Rejuvenating set skincare from Beautycounter that she sent me. As it turned out, the skincare that I tried out didn’t work so well on my skin and I had some breakout a few weeks ago from using it.

So after that, I decided to get back to the previous skincare set that I normally used just to neutralize the breakout before trying on the set from Beautycounter. Thank God it actually worked! 😀

And the reason why I finally tried the rejuvenating set recently was that as you probably know, I was traveling to Singapore last week. The sample size is so travel-friendly, so I figured that’d be easier to try on while traveling and so I did!

How To Travel Smart in ASEAN Countries

Reading Time: 8 minutes

As you know, it’s pretty rare to find me writing a post with such a short title like this, but here I am. This time, I want to share some tips about how to travel smart in ASEAN countries because, who’s a better person to tell you if not me, someone who’s a part of the tribes?

And for those who are not familiar with ASEAN, then let me tell you a piece of my knowledge. ASEAN stands for the Association of South East Asian Nation, an intergovernmental organization in this part of the world. And no matter how our people say otherwise, we’re pretty much similar from one and another.

I mean, if we’re so different, then why the heck people looked at me as if I was a trashy Filipino who could barely speak Tagalog in Manila?

5 Dresses to Avoid the “When’s Your Turn?” Question on the Next Wedding You’re Going to Attend

Reading Time: 7 minutes

Hello everyone!

Did you manage to watch the Royal Wedding on this gloomy Saturday? By gloomy, it wasn’t really referring to my broken heart knowing that Prince Harry is no longer available, but it is actually gloomy in this part of the world. Although to be fair, I’m not complaining as the weather is quite nice to stay in and take a nap like there’s no tomorrow. 😛

Did any of you get invited to the Royal Wedding? If so, you need to hit me up because I heard even the now-Duke and Duchess of Sussex got introduced through a mutual friend. If you got invited to the wedding, it only means that you probably know some other royal family members and who knows? Maybe the bride for the next Royal Wedding would be me?! *lol*

Anyway, speaking of the wedding, if you’re like me and in the age of everyone around you getting married if not getting pregnant, then rest assured you’re probably familiar with this very question: “When’s your turn?”

Well, I suppose if you’ve got a partner already, you’ll get on that question together, you know… Get awkward together.

But, if you’re single like me, it’s not rare to get such response in a way they feel sorry for you or some other kind of negativity just because you’ve got no man beside you. You think I’m exaggerating? Try living in an Asian country for once, being almost 30 and unmarried.
