REVIEW : The Saem's Saemmul Real Tint 01

Welcome back to my blog. Finally I've joined the bandwagon and decided a good lip tint. It's better late than never guys. Once again, I'm guilty. The mere reason why I bought this one few months ago was it was on sale and literally 50% off. You know your girl love me some sale and saving at the same time. Well, let's continue this review before it gets somewhere.

What's it about?
The Saem's Saemmul Real Tint is infused with marine collagen and white birch extract to keep our lips hydrated. This pigmented lip stain glides on easily and makes application a breeze. Whether you're making a full lip effect or a gradient lip look, then this product helps you achieve that with style and comfort.

I have here 01 which is the red tint.

I put some running water on the swatches of my hand

Then you have this faded color left on my arm.
This is how the lip tint looks on me.

PACKAGING: It's a plastic designed tub with a cap. It also has a doe-foot applicator . Overall, it's pretty simple I guess. 

PRICE: It originally costs P190 on Althea website. Check it HERE

COLOR: Mine is the 01 which comes out like a dark cherry color. The color pay off is pretty good I must say.

TEXTURE: The tint isn't too runny. It's just the right amount of consistency. It actually feels nothing on the lips.

My Overall Thoughts
Well, even if bought this on impulse because it was on sale, I'm pretty proud that it did give me good results. First, I have to mention it is quite long lasting. I like that the color fades to this hint of red which makes the lips pretty if that makes sense. Second, it's not very drying on the lips as long as you put on a good lip balm, Lastly, it's cheap and very handy especially if you're on the beach. My only complain about this is its taste. It has this bitter taste and it also easily smudge on the teeth which is pretty ugly. 

TRICKS I've learned from YOUTUBE  about Lip Tints
**How to avoid the lip tint from scattering all over?
 After I put this on the lips, I get a facial tissue and blot the extra tint so no lip tint goes inside my mouth and teeth. It actually works better that way.  

**How to make the lip tint as a natural blush?
Naturally, I use this as a lip tint and  it can also double as a blush. I mix my fave foundation with a single drop or two of the  tint and make it as my blush for that natural flush on the cheeks.

Well, that's wrap for me. Hope you find this helpful. Thanks for visiting my blog. See you next time. Always be curious and be inspired.

VLOGGING : Lambug Beach in Badian Cebu

Welcome back to my blog everyone. I'm greeting this new month of July with a random vlog about our beach trip. It was in Lambug Beach which is in Badian located in the southern part of Cebu. The main purpose of that trip was like a company outing and I just accompanied him by the way. How lucky.

Actually, it was my first time there and I didn't have any expectations whatsover because I was running short of sleep and your girl right here was like grouchy and not in the mood. But wait, lo and behold, when I took a walk down to the beach, I was greeted with a long stretch of fine white sand. Also, it was the right time to witness the romantic sunset. How nice it was. Looking at it was like a breath of fresh air. Overall, that weekend getaway was truly what I needed. Something new, relaxing and filled with new memories and new found friends. 

Here's my VLOG about our experience there

Here are the top 5 activities to do there
1. Play games to strengthen your bond as a team
2. Walk barefoot on the sand
3. Swim like nobody's watching
4. Watch the picturesque sunset and cloud formations
5. Slow down and just take it all in

Random snapshots

That's it for us. Thanks for reading this blog entry. As always, stay hungry. See you in my next adventure.

REVIEW : Whitening Milky Soft Cream by Onsaemeein

Hello guys. I'm back to do another quick review about a product I've been loving the past few days. Actually, this soft cream is part of the skin care gift set that I purchased months ago because it's pretty much discounted. Raise your hands if you do the same thing too. Yes?  Well, let's continue this review right here.

What's it about?
This is basically a soft cream with milk-like consistency. According to Althea Korea's website, it is meant for people who want an instant whitening effect, an elegant base make up and those who want to make their skin tone naturally lighter and smoother.

How to Use this?
As part of your make up, use this in between your skin care routine and your foundation. It serves like a primer that tones the skin prepping it for the makeup process.
As part of your skin care routine, I suggest putting this after your moisturizer to create an  instant whitening effect and at the same time cares for the inner skin blemishes likes scars and other skin pigmentation.

SIZE : The white tub contains 50 ml.

Just drawing a line here. No product applied yet.

On the right side, this is how the product looks on my hand.

The product needs time to apply to be fully absorbed in the skin.

Viola. Notice the right side of my hand. Lines and skin texture looks better and brightened.

PACKAGING: The product comes in white plastic tub that also has a white lid cover. Very straightforward and nothing fancy.

TEXTURE : From the name itself, it has this milk-like consistency that is also very similar to a cream used for baking. Since this is on the heavy side, I suggest to apply this gradually.

PRICE: This costs P390 on Althea's website.

My Final Thoughts
I have to be honest that I really didn't like this soft cream at first. I was somehow confused if it's meant as a whitening cream or a moisturizer. Besides, I had some difficulty because the consistency was on the heavy side so it really felt uncomfortable on the skin literally. I needed some minutes to evenly apply this on the skin and waited again for the cream to be fully absorbed. How stressful. (True story)

After months of trying this again, I discovered good ways how to make it work. First, I use this like a primer combined with my moisturizer. This soft cream just gives an even base before putting on makeup. Second, I use this as my night cream to boost hydration and brightening especially if I have some events to attend to soon. It does help with brightening the skin instantly. Third, I use this as a whitening cream from my elbows and knees and other parts of the skin that need whitening somehow.

Overall, I'm happy and satisfied with this product. Good thing I gave it a go again. I'm amazed how it delivers and how it makes my skin glowing, radiant and smooth. Anyhow hope you find this helpful guys. That's it for me. As I always say, choose to be happy. Till next time. See you in my next review entry again.
