Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer (REVIEW & GIVEAWAY)

I just came back from my first trip this summer and had a blast! The sun, sea and sand felt so goooood! You can check out the photos on Instagram using the hashtag #OSZambales! Definitely a trip worth remembering. I can't wait for the next ones!

Speaking of the beach, as much as I love soaking up the sun, it is no doubt that this causes dryness on the skin. You have to take necessary measures to make sure that you bring back the moisture else suffer from itchy and flaky skin all over.


Vaseline sent over one of their latest products and I couldn't be any happier--it's the Vaseline Spray & Go Spray Moisturizer! At PHP250.00, you get a 184g bottle, good for 40 long sprays. It comes in different variants, Essential Healing (the one I've tried), Cocoa Radiant (brown--perfect for getting that sunkissed glow), and Aloe Soothe (green).

WHAT IS IT?
The Vaseline Spray and Go Spray Moisturizer has:
  • A balanced formula of thin, lightweight lotion with droplets of Vaseline jelly that absorbs and moisturizes in seconds to heal dry skin, without the sticky or greasy feel
  • Comes in a convenient spray bottle and without using any harmful substances, but instead dispenses the product using compressed air.
  • Provides an all-over spray for quick and easy application
WHY I LOVE IT?
  • It is so convenient to use - spraying is the way to go! I literally just spray, pat, and leave it on my skin
  • It doesn't leave a sticky, icky feeling - something NO ONE wants especially given the extreme heat this season
  • I love how it smells! Light yet fragrant.
  • It gets easily absorbed by the skin
  • You may 'lock' the container by just twisting the cap, no messy spills during travel
I highly recommend this product especially this summertime! Get it from your favorite personal stores now!

Bring Your Skin to Light! (No.1 Kojic Acid Soap in Philippines)

We are definitely feeling the intense summer heat in Manila, and I know not even that will make you cancel your beach trips! I have a couple of vacation adventures lined up and I just can't wait to take those photos!

If you watch my vlogs on YouTube, you'd know how I shared about having problems making my skintone look even. Uneven skintone became a problem for me late last year as a result of regular sun exposure and not wearing sunblock on a daily. The effects started showing after a few months and I told myself I really should take a step and do something about it. Especially that summer is here, and uneven skintone can be a cause of a decrease in one's confidence!

The main problem area? My arms. I've developed brown spots over time and they are not a good sight. I've recently started giving Kojie San products a try (I've heard from friends that this brand's products really DO work, and I wanted to test it out!)


Kojie San has a whole range of lightening products that include a soap, body lotion, a cleanser+toner, and a face cream.

Here's a little background for you -
Kojie San Lightening Soap first entered the market in 2007 as a flagship product from Beauty Elements Ventures, Inc. (BEVI). Kojic Acid formulation turned out to be the key ingredient in convincing whitening fans to become true believers. Today, Kojie San is the #1 Kojic soap in the country.
To tell you honestly, I thought Kojie San was a JAPANESE BRAND! But nope, it's purely and proudly Pinoy! How awesome is that?

Kojic Acid was discovered in Japan. It is a by-product of Koji or Malted Rice and used in the production of rice wine. Kojic acid is popularly known for its remarkable whitening effect and antioxidant properties.

Here are the products from the range and their uses:

KOJIE SAN LIGHTENING SOAP 135g: PhP 68

- this soap has high grade Kojic Acid the prevents melanin production for lighter, clearer skin

- it also effectively diminishes dark spots, freckles, acne, plus stretch marks and uneven skin tone

*Why I love it - I love how it did not leave my skin feeling flaky and dry. To prevent this from happening for first time users, it is actually recommended to use the soap every other day (or adjust it accordingly) so as not to 'shock' your skin. The soap lathers rather quickly, and a little goes a long way!

After using the soap, I make sure I moisturize and apply sunblock and I use the:

Kojie San Body Lightening Lotion 200ml: PhP 262 

-this lotion contains an advanced formula or Kojic Acid plus rosehip oil that whitens the skin as it heals -it is made for faster absorption to lighten skin in less time

-it also contains collagen + vitamin E that increases youthfulness and skin health

*Why I love it - oh I just LOVE the smell ans feel of this lotion. It actually doesn't even feel like lotion on the skin! Once you spread it, bam! The skin drinks it all up and you are left with a supple skin texture without that icky, sticky feeling. Who wouldn't want that?

Kojie San also has face products:

Kojie San Cleanser + Toner 100ml: PhP 75 

-is equipped with Ginseng Extract and Rosehip Oil to revive tired skin

-gets rid of excessive oil while repairing skin damage.

*Why I love it - I expected it to sting on the face, but it did not sting AT ALL. I love how light the formula is and how gentle it is on the skin. I have combination skin type, and this has definitely helped a lot with controlling excess sebum.

Lastly, we have the:

Kojie San Lightening Face Cream 30g: PhP 120 

- it has a combination of natural extracts and high-grade Kojic Acid that lightens as it nourishes the skin

-it restores the skin suppleness for a healthy, rosy look

*Why I love it - just like the cleanser+toner, this face cream feels really light on the skin. No sticky after-feel as it is quickly absorbed by the skin leaving it hydrated and supple!

It has only been a few weeks since I started using these, and I am loving all of them! Can't wait to share my beach OOTD's baring skin that is brought to light!

Are YOU ready to bring your skin to light with the country’s No.1 Kojic Acid Soap? Getting a face so fair, a back worth baring and legs so alluring can be achieved with continuous use of Kojie San Lightening range (soap, lotion, cleanser + toner and face cream)

Get them now at all leading supermarkets, drug stores, and sari-sari stores nationwide.

Follow them on Facebook and Instagram and let them know how you like the products! (Hopefully as much as I am loving them!) #bringyourskintolight #kojiesan

How I Evened Out My Weird Tan Line (SNOW SKIN WHITENING LOTION)


Hi guys!
If you watch my vlogs, you'd know how I developed a weird tan line from a beach trip about a month ago. I didn't think it would bother me that much, but it did--especially when I had to go out and wear, say for example, an off shoulder top/low neckline top.
I knew I needed to even out my skin tone, because it wasn't flattering at all.





I've always stayed away from whitening products, but when this happened, I found myself giving them a try. You guys know how companies send over stuff for reviewing, so then I gave this brand a try-- SNOW SKIN.
They sent over (2) products and the main one I tested out for my uneven skin tone is the Snow Skin Whitening Lotion. PHP799.00

  • First impression: it smells so good! 
  • Lotion feels light on the skin and not sticky at all
  • A little goes a long way - I use about 2 pumps each time on my chest area
  • Unlike other expensive skin whitening creams and lotions​, only​ Snow has 7 Active ingredients that are all Clinically Proven to Whiten Skin that's also effective in Anti Ageing
  1. IBRTCLC (Tomato Colorless Carotenoids
  2. IBR-Snowflake
  3. 7 Plant Extracts from the Swiss Alps
  4. Bearberry Extract
  5. Alpha Arbutin
  6. Beta Glucan
  7. Phenylethyl Resorcinol
And according to them, the:
Snow Whitening Cream and Lotion contains ​a ​High % of concentration of all these​ active​ ingredients. This is crucial because manufacturers only use a very small % of  Whitening Actives​.​ ​Usually ​they only ​use ​one​ main​ expensive active then they mixed it with cheaper actives like papaine or Kojic Acid. Most manufacturers only use 0.01% of Alpha Arbutin to gain higher profit margins. But because Snow Skin Whitening aims to provide quick and effective results, they use 2% which is the recommended % for faster whitening effect.
I tried using the lotion, and believe me not, in about only 8 days, my uneven tan LIGHTENED and now you can barely see it!


It's a bonggang product for me, and I can say that it worked on me!
It also comes in a CREAM form (Snow Skin Whitening Cream - Php 1,499.00) that you can use on your face for dark spots, old acne marks, uneven skin tone...etc. I haven't tried it on my face just yet, but will let you guys know how it works!

Don't forget to watch my video on this:

Enjoy watching! :)
