What's not to love about a shirt dress? This is fast becoming a wardrobe staple and a mommy uniform. I've said it before but I will say it again-- a shirt dress is versatile, comfortable and easy-to-wear. Something that you can wear as a casual day look and take it to cocktails with friends after by switching accessories and shoes. However you want to style it, no matter where you want to wear it to, a shirt dress is anything but boring.

For a weekend at my Uncle's place and my lola's ancestral place, opted to wear this striped shirt dress for ease and paired it with my Flossy plimsolls for maximum comfort. Nothing spells easy-wear styling than with all things comfortable. Finished off the look with my favorite hat and voila! Casual everyday mommy uniform with just three items.

Sometimes, you don't need a whole lot of clothes for layering (tropical heat = sweaty armpits. eek! ) to look like a "legit" blogger. All you need is the right kind of attitude and your personal style to pull off any look. And by attitude I mean genuine and unpretentious, not overbearing and arrogant.

Shopping for luxury items in Cebu means ordering online and dealing with customs and shipping fees that almost equals the amount of the item you're buying. It is a luxury in and of itself and that makes the buying experience a wee bit more troublesome. With all the unnecessary fees and the waiting game, the excitement in buying your first or second or 10th luxury bag, would've died down by the time it is finally in your hands. So wouldn't it be nice if we had luxury shops in Cebu that are not only accessible but has items that are made affordable as well?

Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion: How to Use and Mini Review

Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs

When your skin begs for a little more hydration, and your moisturizers just don't make the cut, you turn to treatment lotions that do exactly just that-- boost your skin's hydration for a more supple and better-looking skin.

A few months ago, I attended a one-on-one Bobbi Brown lesson by Bobbi-trained Tamara Pineda and she demonstrated how to achieve a fresh no make-up look with just the basics. This of course covered the how-to's in applying your concealer and foundation. The very highlight of this workshop that stuck with me was the pre-makeup preparation which included the Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion.

Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs, Tamara Pineda

I went home with a full-size bottle of this treatment lotion for me to incorporate in my everyday makeup routine and nightly regimen. I've been using this lotion for 3 months now and I'm happy to report that I finally found a product that addresses my skin concern regarding hydration.

Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion is a preparative lotion that you apply first before your skincare routine to maximize skin's moisture. It is a water-based lotion perfect for anyone who needs an extra moisture boost and who likes their skin soothed, calm and more even looking.

For someone who grew up with a lot of skin issues ( I started using moisturizer when I was in 3rd grade ), it is imperative for me to find a product that targets all my problem areas without prominent downsides i.e. heavy feeling, stickiness, excess oil that leads to clogged pores. With the Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, I have noticed significant change in my skin's suppleness in just 3 weeks of use but because I wanted to make sure that it wan't just a temporary result, I used it for the next 3 months hoping to see optimum results. 

So this is me after shower- no moisturizer, no concealer, no sunblock, NO KILAY!
Just the treatment lotion.

Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs, Tamara Pineda

I use the treatment lotion in the morning after applying my toner and before makeup, and at night after my toner and before my serum and moisturizer. While it does not promise acne-free and clearer skin ( you will need a different product to address these concerns ), it however promotes hydration making your skin more supple, more plump and better looking with that youthful glow. And because it is water-based, it is easily absorbed by the skin without giving you a heavy sticky feeling.

Typically, this is how I use my BB Extra Treatment Lotion in the morning and at night:

MORNING: Cleansing • Toner • BB Extra Treatment Lotion • Moisturizer • Makeup

AT NIGHT: Cleanse/Exfoliate • Toner • BB Extra Treatment Lotion • Serum • Moisturizer

I normally use 2 drops of the lotion but on days when I feel like my skin needs more boost and at night when the AC gives your face that drying feeling, I use 3 drops and massage it slowly and evenly on my face using my fingers.Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs, Tamara Pineda
While it looks complicated and takes a whole lot of time, trust me, your skin will actually thank you for it.

Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion has Glycerin and Hyaluronate that binds moisture to skin for a plumped, more radiant appearance. Finally, Trelahose, a sugar-derived ingredient, promotes long term hydration without the sticky feeling.

This treatment lotion is one of my highly recommended buys if you're looking for a product to help you boost skin hydration. Expect better skin texture, lesser fine lines and a more youthful glow with continued use.

Maxi-mizing Summer

I can't believe Summer's coming to a close. It seems only yesterday when I went legit crazy hoarding one-piece swimwear only to realise that Summer's nearly over and it's now time for my 3-year-old to start school this June. How time flies!

Cebu Bloggers, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Lifestyle Blogger, Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Mommy Blogger, Travel, Beach, Cebu beaches, Costabella Beach Resort, Philippine Blogger, Asian, Beach outfit, maxi dress, How to wear maxi dress to the beach, what to wear to the beach, beach party outfit, beachside outfit,

The Summer months flew by so quickly, I didn't have enough time to frolic and bake and toast but I'm not complaining. Cebu badly needs rain what with dams and rivers drying up, and there's just no point praying for more Summer heat just to hit the beach. Besides, Summer is just a state of mind, right?

But let's all be honest.. it's much better to visit your favorite beach when it's hot out and not raining, amiright? So please excuse me while go on a little sepanx spiel and post Summer photos here on the blog. Haha! Having said that, here's a beach outfit taken a few days before the summer months officially started and before my sister left for the US. Quite possibly the most appropriate sendoff for her because, 10°C NJ weather.

If white is the color that is synonymous to Summer in my vocabulary, maxi dresses are fast becoming my go-to beach outfit. Not only are they chic and comfortable, they're also very easy to wear, easy to pull off and easier to get out of. Ha! Whether you're wearing one as a beach coverup or a dress in itself, maxi dresses are must-haves that every woman needs to own. From pretty florals to minimalist solid colors to vibrant aztec prints, maxi dresses are anything but boring, so the next time you pack for another beach getaway, don't forget to throw in one together with your wide-brimmed hat and oversized sunnies ;)

So.. I will just leave this here to tide me over until my next beach adventure when the husband comes home ;) Counting the days!

Naturactor Cover Face Concealer: How to Use, Photos and Mini Review

Beauty, Blog, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Makeup Haul, How to Use Naturactor Cover Face Concealer, Silky Lucent Loose Powder, Philippine Beauty Blogger, Cebu Beauty Bloggers, Makeup, Tutorial, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Asian, Let's Stylize Cosmetics, Toni Pino-Oca

Every girl needs a good concealer in her beauty arsenal. Whether you have dark circles, red blemishes or acne scars, a good concealer can camouflage all these without having to pile on so much product thus allowing you to achieve that pore-less and flawless complexion without leaving a heavy feeling.

For someone who has sensitive skin, I always stick to products that I really swear by and those that I’ve used for quite some time. I am not one to test each and every new discovery in the market but if I see something promising, I, of course, make a conscious effort to go through the product description, list of ingredients and read reviews before I give in and road test it. It’s best to get to know the products you want to try by researching than by viva voce. 

Beauty, Blog, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Makeup Haul, How to Use Naturactor Cover Face Concealer, Silky Lucent Loose Powder, Philippine Beauty Blogger, Cebu Beauty Blogger, Makeup, Tutorial, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Blogger, Asian, Let's Stylize Cosmetics, Toni Pino-Oca

I’ve heard a lot of good reviews of Naturactor’s product line; from their concealer, to their pressed powder, down to their silky lucent loose powder. Beauty gurus and enthusiasts alike have, at one point, raved about how good Naturactor products are. The chances of reading bad reviews are slim to none, but the dead giveaway? The tag, Made in Japan. If products are from the Land of the Rising, trust that I would consider trying it 60-70 percent of the time.

Naturactor Cover Face Concealer Foundation can be used as a concealer or a full coverage foundation. It has a smooth, workable texture, is light and is perfect for days when you don't want to wear too much face products. It provides good coverage, is easy to apply and in my case, offers 6-hour wear without caking.

The Cover Face comes in 5 different shades.

130 Very light shade. Gives vibrance to pale skin creating a rosy, youthful look. Suitable for very fair skin tone.
140 Light shade. Slightly deeper in color than 130 suitable for fair skin tone.
141 Medium shade. The translucence of this shade makes it suitable for fair to medium skin tone. Suitable for a natural look.
151 Dark shade. Suitable for creating coverage over scars and other major skin imperfection. Translucence of this shade makes it suitable for medium to dark skin tone. Best for brown skin tone.
171 Green shade. Neutralizes redness, superficial blood vessels, acne, blemishes, allergies, irritation and skin redness in general.

In this post, I will show you guys how i use my Naturactor Cover Face Concealer in Shade 140.

I like to start my makeup routine with a treatment lotion before anything else (separate post to follow). It hydrates and prepares my skin for an even and smooth application of my makeup base and concealer. And because UVA and UVB are so unforgiving, one must not forget the sunblock. 

This is me with just sunblock and eyebrow makeup on (to make me look more human. ha!)

Using a flat foundation brush, pick up a small amount of product and tap it gently under your eye.

Make sure to use a light hand in picking up the product because a little goes a long way!

Using a beauty blender or a wedge, smoothen out the application even more by tapping gently onto the areas where you've applied the concealer.

Continue covering your problematic areas (sides of the nose and lips) using the same tapping technique of the foundation brush and beauty blender.

Continue blurring out the blemishes on the other side (under eye, around the nose and lip area.) Using what little product left on the beauty blender, I applied onto the rest of my face.

To keep the product from caking, spray on a little Evian water all over your face and continue blurring out uneven application using your blender.

For the finishing touch, always apply powder. Applying loose powder, often known as baking, is essential in achieving line-free and smooth concealer and helps lock everything in. To do this, use a loose powder and large powder brush to sweep the product all over your face. I am using Naturactor Silky Lucent Loose Powder in 41.

You can and may use a tapered kabuki brush to set your under eye concealer using the same loose powder and sweep off the excess using the large powder brush.

The Naturactor Cover Face Concealer did an exceptional job in covering the redness on my cheeks, nose and lip area as well as perfectly camouflaging my dark under eye. It's light, making you feel like you're not wearing anything at all. Just keep in mind to use a light hand when applying the product :)
