Mineral Make-up

25 Oct

I’ve always wanted to put on a little make-up whenever I go out but unfortunately, I have sensitive skin. It’s hard for me to find a product that will not cause pimple breakouts even with the slightest brush of the powder. That is why I got interested with mineral make-ups, or MMUs. I have read that since these make-ups are made from minerals, they shouldn’t cause any irritation to the skin. So maybe these are the kind that I should try.

The Body Shop has come up with the Extra Virgin line of mineral make-ups. I bought the loose powder one in 302, that’s the natural color. I also bought a kabuki brush for it.

First time I tried it? I got a pimple on my forehead. 😦 But, I was thinking maybe the pimple came out because I’ll be having my period soon. So I’ll just stop using it for now and just had another go at it after. Will just give another update then. Wish me luck! 😀


Vanity Room

6 Jul

I had another manicure/pedicure at Vanity Room in Makati.  It’s my 2nd time to have my nails done by them and I must say that I am really loving their service. 

I have tried the same service at Let’s Face It in Greenbelt 1, CANS in dela Rosa, and Nail-a-holics at SM Southmall. But Vanity Room is the one that passed my expectations.  LFI and Nail-a-holics were okay, but in CANS I was really disappointed. I was not satisfied at all with the French tip mani/pedi I had, and their charges were expensive that I really felt I didn’t get my money’s worth.

With VR, I have clean and pretty-looking fingers and toes.  See for yourself:

Oh, did I say that they have a 50% off promo in their services until the end of this month? Yeah, that’s right! 50% off, baby! 😀
