Oryspa Beauty Oil Review #MustHave

Oryspa is love. I'm an avid fan and patron of this local brand. #ProudlyPinoy

Oryspa patronage is totally rewarding, I buy the products that I like, enjoy their benefits, and enjoy freebies (discounts or free products) to boot. Some of its products, I already couldn't live without, and the list just keeps getting longer. Included now in my list of must-haves is the Rice Bran Beauty Oil.

Oryspa Rice Bran Beauty Oil is a multi-functional face/body/hair oil that works as a makeup remover, skin lightening and as a beauty oil with reinforced anti-aging benefits. Oryspa Beauty Oil sells for Php 185/60 ml bottle.
So many good stuff in Oryspa Rice Bran Oil.  #Love #MustHave 
Oryspa Rice Bran Beauty Oil contains combination of oryzanol rich rice brand oil that helps even out skin tone and lightens dark spots even dark under eye circles and discolarion on underarms. It contains Vitamin E rich grapeseed  that moisturizes face and body, smoothens and lightens, minimizes strechmarks. It contains evening primrose oil that is best for sensitive problematic skin. It even adds shine to dull hair to give fresher and healthier look. 
Since I already have a dedicated skincare regimen in place, meantime, I use the beauty oil as a makeup remover. It's my go-to waterproof eye makeup remover. It cleanses gently, without the cloudiness. Plus, I actually feel and see that it also nourishes my eye lashes, keeps them falling out and it hastens regrowth for thicker and fuller lashes.

Take a look at how it works effortlessly in removing eye makeup.

Oryspa Beauty Oil gently removes mascara, eyeliner and heavy eyeshadows too. 
Side story on my funky eye makeup. Yesterday was my company's 50th anniversary #RMK50, I was one of the performers, we did a 90's dance medley (oh yes, Macarena, Shalala, Barbie Girl, Can't Touch This, Mambo No. 5 and more). We had a matching hair and makeup. I will try to do a post on it too, it's so much fun!

Back to Orypa Beauty Oil, for removing eye mascara and eyeliner, I use a cotton swab. It works like a wand and it's more targeted, plus it's more economical. What I do is I dispense a little oil on my palm and dab the swabs.

At times, I use it also to remove bb creams, foundations and what have you, cleanses squeaky clean and no break outs.

Although I have yet to see how it will fare on the minimizing-the-stretchmarks-part, because with so much (countless, as in mass nouns) stretchmarks to remove (so bad! so sad!), I will need a whole lot more of it. A litre-pack, perhaps! Aissh!

Fall in love with Oryspa, drop by one of its mall kiosks and make sure not to miss sniffing the Meditation balm and the latest SNIFF Balm (go for the small tub, because the scent differs from the big tub). For spa-ish scent and experience at home, check out their massage oils too. Let's fangirl over Oryspa. Cheers! ^_^

Holistic Skin Care Routine with Myra E #TuloyangGanda

Beautiful Sunday! ^_^ Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. Well, mine, yesterday was so-so. The not-so-good part, some of it, I couldn't help but vent out on Twitter, plus I had a terrible headache to boot. Worst, son is still not feeling well! Oh of a drama-filled supermom, aja, aja, fighting! ^_^ #Sundate later.

Anyhow, yesterday was not all that bad. After doing my errands, I had good staycation, and I slept early and long (earliest and longest in yearsss...Yay!^_*). Icing on a happy weekend is a beautiful package from Myra E. Thank you! So now, I'm recharged! Let's talk about beautiful stuff.

While I'm on to a good start of having a devoted skin care routine, studies show that facial creams and lotions are not enough to keep your skin look beautiful.  For that healthy, young-looking and glowing skin, the holistic skin care also comes with having enough sleep (beauty rest), exercise (my biggest challenge!), lots of water (super love the Kor water bottle, which is perfect for infused water, thank you! ;-D), eating well (aha!) and taking Vitamin E.

Take Myra Vitamin E. #MyraHolistic
Take Vitamin E. This is where the heart of Holistic Skin Care is. As you go about your usual work day, you get exposed to bad and uncontrollable free radicals that damage your cells. The result: tired-looking skin that looks dull, dry, and aging. Help your skin bounce back and recoup easily by adding a daily dose of Vitamin E to your diet. Since this vitamin isn’t produced by the body, taking a powerful Vitamin E supplement like Myra, can help. It’s rich in anti-oxidants to help boost your skin from within and also stops skin-damaging, free radicals from stealing life from your cells. The best part is, it also repairs damaged cells and works hard to protect the healthy ones. And with more healthy cells in your body, you’ll be able to have beautiful, glowing and younger-looking skin throughout the years to come.
Beautiful skin starts from within. Enjoy the goodness of Vitamin E with Myra E. 
I'm almost on the right track, minus exercising and some bad habits. (I will try to break those bad habits soon, promise!)

Mine and Hubby's...our dose of nutraceuticals everyday (D3, Biotin, Flaxseed Oil (Omega 3-6-9), Multi-Vitamins, and now with Myra Vitamin E). 
Joining the esteemed rosters of Myra E brand ambassadors are Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo and Sarah Geronimo.
Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo and Sarah Geronimo for Myra E Holistic Skincare.
For someone about my age group, Judy Ann looks truly looks beautiful. So inspiring. Oh well, I have my creams and lotions and Myra E for the healthy cells, I just lack some of the elements of healthy lifestyle. Hah. Soon...Hello, healthy, youthful-looking, and glowing skin! Let's do this! Cheers! ^_^

Myra 300E contains 300IU of Synthetic Vitamin E for Php 241.50 per bottle of 30s. Myra 400E contains 400IU of Natural Vitamin E for Php 354.90 per bottle of 30s. Myra E is available on leading drugstores, supermarkets, and department stores nationwide.

Innisfree Haul {Skincare Must-Haves}

Annyeong! ^_^ Yay! Oh goodie, another Lee Min Ho Innisfree post.

My Skin care Must Haves and Must Buy in Korea. Innisfree Bija Anti-Trouble Facial Foam, Skin, Lotion, Perfect 9 Repair Serum, Eco Safety Perfect Sunblock and some freebies #Perfection #Happiness ^_^
Here's another Seoul-ful haul of my basic skincare must haves, which are from the Innisfree Bija (formerly Jejubija) Anti-Trouble Skin Care line. I devoted so much to it lengthily here and here too.

Innisfree Perfect 9 Repair Serum. After finishing dozens of trial packs/samples, I'm sold. I just had to get the full size (58000 KRW or Php 2450+) 
I'm loving the Innisfree Perfect 9 Repair Serum. It's lightweight, plus it leaves a silky feel and finish. It boasts of precious 9 plants from Jeju Island (Oh Jeju, I hope to visit soon!), which offers aplenty of age-defying benefits. Love it!

Just in case you're new here, before it's Skinfood, Skinfood, Skinfood, then I met Lee Min Ho err Innisfree, and fell head over heels in love.  Fangirl aside, Innisfree skin care lines are well suited to my skin type, plus are generally well priced (when in Seoul). I stick by the Bija Anti-Trouble Line, and add a serum or cream for reinforcement, the more, the merrier! I will try my very best to do a full review of the Perfect 9.

Innisfree Eco Safety Perfect Sunblock SPF 50+ PA +++ for 12000 KRW. 
I'm well aware of the need to apply sunscreen, while most of the bb creams offer protection, it's still best to reinforce it. I was also able to try out sample packs of this. I like it because it's not as greasy plus it doesn't leave a white cast. It doesn't feel heavy to layer it with makeups afterwards. Plus it offers a good full spectrum protection. More importantly, it didn't give me breakouts, so a full size replenishment was in order. Oh yes, I hope to be back to do a full review. ^_*

I usually asked friends to get them for me in Seoul. Last time, I got them in Hong Kong (lucky them, Innisfree is in Hong Kong). Or it's via my fave Korean e-Bay seller, BHappywithme. This recent haul was c/o my friend who went to Seoul. Kamsahamnida chingu!

Innisfree, please come to the Philippines (and bring Lee Min Ho along). Cheers! ^_^

If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
