My Latest Althea Haul Gift Set ( Althea X Chica Y Chico)

Hello guys! Who among you here love shopping? Hmm Raise your hands if you do? Well, I've managed to grab some good deals here. Let's cut this chase and head on to this haul-ing. I must admit that this one was quite an impulse purchase. Never mind. Good deals always make me giddy and happy. I will introduce them and at the same time get to know the nature and benefits of the products. Let's begin.

My Althea Haul Gift Box  ( Althea X Chica Y Chico)
This gift box is named as 10-Minute Miracle. Interesting. It's curated to be used for day and night use to achieve that beautiful a no makeup look. Here are items that come with it.

1. Dr. Color Effect Red Serum

This potent drop of essence gives the best skin condition. It has good anti-oxidants and contains ingredients for skin firming, brightening and balancing oil moisture.

2. Skin & Lab Red Cream

This cream contains Damascan roses extracts to help rejuvenate the skin. It also has whitening and anti-aging benefits.

3. Chica Y Chica Matte Cushion # 23  in Semi-matte

I've used the matte version of this before and I believe that they are somewhat similar to each other. Anyhow, the cushion claims to provide a soft satin finish without caking. 

4.Skin & Lab Vitamin C Cream
This is a good cream with vitamin c benefits. It promises to brighten the face, improve skin tone condition, control the melanin on the skin, and helps with anti-aging also.

5. Chica Y Chico Beta-Sallic 2.0

This is actually a wonder product surprisingly. It has multiple benefits like acne relief, making the skin smooth,  mild exfoliation, clear skin tone,clearing the black head and rejuvenating tired skin. 

6. Chica Y Chico Urban Princess Mask in Snow White

This sheet mask has a special formula that contains white flower complex, apple extract water and niacin amide that brighten skin complexion.

7. 3 Random Samples for skincare

There you have it. Those were the items in that Althea box. Unfortunately, they are all sold out already but fret not. Just stay tuned and always be in the look out for some good deals in the future. Once again, thank you Althea for bringing good stuffs for us skincare and make up junkee.

That's it for me. As always, thanks for reading this blog entry guys. Stay beautiful inside and out.

Travel Vlog : Things to do In Odaiba

Hello everyone. Today, I'll bring you to Odaiba. It's the largest artificial island in Tokyo Bay, Japan. It's just across the Rainbow bridge from central Tokyo. Through the years, it's becoming more popular for many tourists as they go shopping and sightseeing. :) Let me count the ways how to enjoy this place. 

Top 5 Things To Do In Odaiba
1. Gundam Front Tokyo

All Gundam fans will surely love it here. You can watch the live show of the the Gundam statue everyday. Do check the schedule.
** You can also play the Gundam capsule station and make it your souvenir as well. In addition, you can visit their store and find some good Gundam collectible items. Prices are pretty reasonable also.

2. Palette Town Ferris Wheel

This is surely quite an experience for anyone to be up there witnessing the fantastic view of Tokyo.

3. Oedo Onsen Monogatari

This is basically an onsen theme park. Everything in one place makes any tourist so happy and giddy. 

  • Enjoy the sauna 
  • Try to experience their version of onsen ( hot spring)
  • Eat and savor the foods you can buy in the traditional food restaurants
  • Try and experience their outdoor foot bath
  • Don't forget to visit their souvenir shops for some good finds

4. Venus Fort

This place feels like you are easily transported to Europe. With its beautiful architecture and ceiling design, it makes you feel you are in another world already. You can enjoy shopping there and find some stuffs there too.

5. National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation

This is a good place to be if you want to learn and discover the other side of Japan. With its futuristic design, you can have a glimpse of Japanese technology. Plus, you can get to experience what our future society will look like and get to see real robots there.

That's it for me. By the way, I have here a short clip of our experience in Odaiba. Have fun watching and see you in my next travel series. 

Always stay hungry and continue to explore the world.
