ULTIMATE SKIN HYDRATOR!

DSC_0010

Cinema Secrets Moisture Spray (59ml) ₱575.00

Made with the same top-quality ingredients found in heavy creams but applied via a fine, refreshing mist, Cinema Secrets Moisture Spray absorbs excess powder for a natural-looking finish--and rejuvenates skin. The moisturizing formula contains NAPCA, elastin, collagen, and sodium hyaluronate in a pure iodized water base.

This all purpose MOISTURE SPRAY is designed to add moisture to the skin, help Cinema Secrets FOundation spread thinner, smoother, and set powder as well as provide a dewy, fresh look. Continued use can slow down wrinkling process of the skin. To prevent dehydration of skin in dry climates and artificial environments such as offices and airplanes—spray every hour or two.

Directions:

  1. To apply makeup using a sponge—Spray 1 or 2 times onto sponge to dampen slightly, then dip sponge into makeup
  2. To set makeup—after powdering the face, hold 10 to 12 inches away from face and spray
  3. To refresh and revitalize skin—spray 2 or 3 times a day

I’ve been frequently flying the past weeks and I have learned to hate air inside the plane especially with makeup on my face. My skin just feels SO TIGHT and YUCKY. I can still remember the time I flew back from Cebu with full makeup on. I felt so sorry for my skin.

This is where the Cinema Secrets Moisture Spray comes in. My ultimate skin hydrator!!! Well, you can obviously tell from the product itself how often I’ve been using it. I only have about 1/4 left!!!

DSC_0018

Upon spraying onto the face, my skin instantly feel moisturized! It’s very refreshing and rejuvenating! Tightness on the face fades, and it seems like my skin can “breathe” again.

This moisture spray is also a perfect tool to refresh a full face of makeup. It revives “old makeup” on the skin—like having full makeup on for hours without retouching.

When I use foundations that are too thick, I spritz this on my face first and then apply the foundation, and application gets instantly easier!

I highly recommend this product. It gets an A+ for me!

Also available in 118ml (PHP795.00), order here.

bb cream loreal

Hydrates, Primes, Perfects, Corrects.
Flawless bare skin finish.

Meet the Magic all-in-one skin BB cream, with Beautifying Beads; encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C&E. This mullti-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 beautifying actions in 1: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. Instantly transforms to your perfect shade for a flawless, bare skin finish. Over time, more beautiful skin.

Comes in 4 different shades to fit almost all skin tones!

shades

In this review I used the shade “Medium”. I also think that going a shade lighter will still suit me! Make sure you choose the closest shade for your skin tone before ordering!

  • This BB cream wowed me with its beautifying beads. The BB cream is white in color and contains bead-like particles that break down upon contact with skin (through blending) transforming its shade into your skintone!
  • I love how LIGHT this BB cream feels on the skin! It’s definitely something you can use every day
  • I love how easily it blends onto the skin! It gives a very radiant, fresh finish giving you a healthy skin glow

In terms of coverage and longevity, I have photos to show you to back up this BB Cream’s positive performance on myself.

loreal bb

BEFORE AND AFTER | Absolutely no makeup on, no primer, visible acne, dark spots, oily t-zone >>> evened out skin tone, acne marks disappeared, dark spots no longer visible, dry patches around the nose area, healthy skin finish

***NO PRIMER/SETTING POWDER USED***

3 hrs

AFTER THREE (3) HOURS | Coverage still intact, insignificant shine/oil on the T-zone, no melting

8 hrs

AFTER MORE OR LESS 8 HOURS | Visible shine on T-zone, coverage still intact!

THE VERDICT:

One of the best BB Creams I’ve tried.

  1. I did not use setting powder for the sake of trying out the bb cream alone. Had I set it with powder, this BB cream would TOTALLY last for more than 12 hours without shine!
  2. This is perfect for people with oily-combination skin! Use primer and setting powder to keep oiliness at bay.
  3. This BB Cream DOES NOT have an overly dewy finish! Which is perfect for us with combination and oily skin type
  4. I love the healthy skin glow I gives me

This definitely goes on my “BEST BB CREAM I’VE TRIED” list!

PRICE: ONLY PHP500.00 from Chedelyn’s Cosmetics Collection (US price, 100% authentic, straight from the U.S.A., cheaper price compared to when bought from Department Stores)

CEBU’S Makeup Heaven NOW OPEN!

I was invited over to do FREE makeovers as well as meet my beautiful Cebuana readers together with my gorgeous friend, Noe of Colorismyweapon! Of course, it was yet another blessed opportunity that I couldn’t say “no” to.

I wasn’t able to take photos with my viewers due to the very BUSY situation, but here is a photo of myself with Jhoye, her husband, and their baby girl. Jhoye is very dear to my heart as I met her 2 years ago here in Cebu. Since then, we’ve always kept in touch. She is a wonderful person with a wonderful family. I am happy to see their baby girl all grown up!
