Pisceanrat Eyeshadow Collection

Hello po! Here is my humble collection of eyeshadows. I actually posted this as something to - uhm - look back on... Hehehe, ika nga happy memories...

eyeshadow collection

Of course, there are eyeshadows not in this picture. I don't have them anymore, probably I already disposed of or had given away.

For some reason, I am quite fixated on the assortment of colors on an eyeshadow palette. The rainbow colors mesmerize me. That is why I prefer palettes over single pans. Also, this fascination started when I was a child.

With regards to shades, I usually go for Nude and Earth tones.

I have not been using eyeshadows for the longest time. Only recently have I really been serious on applying them.

As to the reason why not? Here, let me list it down:

1. Afraid for eyelids to sag and droop
2. Messy or hard to remove
3. Always in a hurry; no time to apply
4. Not a master, terrible in blending
5. Afraid to ruin the smooth perfection of the untouched pan (surface will not be smooth anymore)

I am lucky that I got most of them as freebies, prizes, while some are bought. My eyeshadow singles and palettes collection-

Etude House VIP Princess Fantasy, Revlon Not Just Nudes, Lancome Absolu Voyage Travel Palette,  A.Concept Eye Light Daily Kit, BCL x Althea Sunrise Moonrise Palette, Quattro Eyeshadow by Christian Faye in Brown, Sixteen Brand Brickit Shadow Hit 10 in Choco, W. Lab Pocket Shadow Palette in Blooming, Pink Sugar Eye Candy in EC-02, Son & Park All That Shadow Kit, Pixi by Petra Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Mineral Contour, Rire Twinkle Dual Metallic in 01 Coral, Maybelline Open Eye Look in Gray, W.Lab Twinkle Eye Glam in Glam Chocolat, Dearberry Bling it On in 7 Ice Mist, from Browhaus/Strip is Jade eyeshadow, Etude House Look at my Eyes in PK 007, Catrice in Choc'Late Night Show, from FS Cosmetics (if I remember correctly) is this Clay ultra pearl shadow, Inglot Freedom Shine Square in 152, Ellana Minerals in Wish, Shawill Premium Mineral 3D Diamond in 06 Pink, Avon True Color in Purple Pop.

So hard to choose huh but my Top 3 Faves would have to be W.Lab Blooming, BCL x Althea and Son & Park!

Well only now did I realize that one was covered; only the tip (color) of Witch's Pouch Fit Stick Shadow in 05 can be seen. So, here is a better pic along with remaining pics of shadows that I think I've put in a giveaway; from eb Advance, BYS and Revlon.

Most of these eye shadows are made in China or Korea.

I do realize that this collection may be petty as compared to others (like top beauty bloggers and makeup artists) who have a mega stash, while for some this is already too many.

And I know, I should probably toss out those shadows that are already too old, hee hee...

There, eyeshadows bring a lot of joy and color therapy, don't you think? Thanks for reading! :)

Female Lower Genital Tract - 5 Common Infections to Know STAT!

Hello po! As girls, we know that we should be extra careful and hygienic in our sensitive area! Here are valuable information straight from a reputable Ob-Gyne to help us be aware of and prevent nasty infections!

5 common lower genital tract infection

When it comes to reproductive health, many of us are guilty of not giving it the proper TLC.  While we all know that it’s one of the aspects that we should never neglect, most women tend to forget the importance of regular checkup, proper hygiene, and the right products that won’t disturb its microbial balance. You see, when this happens, not only will it cause pain and discomfort down there, it can also pose greater problems in the long run. 

We have consulted an Obstetrician-Gynecologist, Bernadette Ong-Sumo, M.D. and here are the five common vulvovaginal infections and how to avoid them.

1.     Candidiasis

Commonly known as vaginal yeast infection, candidiasis is recognized to affect 3 out of 4 women at least once in their lifetime. This happens when a change in the natural microflora of the body affects the number of good bacteria leading to the overgrowth of a type of fungus called Candida which is normally found inside the human gut, throat, mouth, and even vagina. Symptoms include vaginal itching or soreness (burning sensation), pain during sexual intercourse or urinating, and changes in normal vaginal discharge described as curd-like or cottage cheese-type.  According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, women who are pregnant, using contraceptives, have diabetes, impaired immune system, or even those who are taking broad-spectrum antibiotics are much more likely to develop Candidiasis.

Wearing cotton underwear and non-tight-fitting clothes might help reduce the chances of getting a yeast infection.  Because taking antibiotics can lead to vaginal candidiasis, take these medicines only when prescribed and exactly as your physician tells you.  Often times, a vaginal yeast infection will clear up on its own, but over the counter, anti-fungal creams or tablets are available for treatment. “For those who choose self-treatment, please see a Gynecologist if symptoms persisted”, advised by Dr. Ong-Sumo.

2.     Vaginosis

Vaginosis, much like Candidiasis, is a type of vaginal inflammation caused by an upset vaginal balance, from lactobacilli-dominant to mixed flora. If you’re noticing a thin, frothy, gray-white vaginal discharge and a foul-smelling vaginal odor described as “musty” or “fishy”, make sure to get checked by your Gynecologist. Sometimes, women with this infection may experience vaginal itching or burning sensation when urinating.  Although it is more common among women in their reproductive years, a couple of factors are known to increase the risk of developing this infection such as smoking, multiple sexual partners, and douching or the practice of washing out the vagina with a mixture of water and vinegar or baking soda. “Frequent douching for hygiene is unnecessary as the vagina does an excellent job of keeping the PH balanced and of cleansing itself,” revealed by Dr. Ong-Sumo.

3. Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Women’s risk of acquiring at least one incidence of UTI during their lifetime is 50%.   UTI is caused by bacteria entering through the urethra and invading the bladder and kidneys. Because women have a shorter urethra than males, bacteria can easily travel to the bladder thus they are known to develop a greater risk of acquiring this infection.  And anyone who had this before knows that it can feel like the worst thing in the whole world: a burning sensation when urinating, strong-smelling urine, urine that appears to be cloudy or red, and pelvic pain that may linger around the center of the pelvis or around the pubic bone. Moreover, sexual activity, the use of diaphragms for birth control measure, and menopause are some of the other risk factors associated with UTI.

Drinking a ton of water helps to dilute the urine and will flush away bacteria even before the infection begins. Additionally, as a part of keeping down there “dry and happy”, wipe from front to back after urinating or defecating. This way, bacteria from the feces or anus will not spread towards the vagina and urethra. Additionally, emptying the bladder after intercourse is also a must so you don’t introduce more bacteria.

4. Folliculitis

According to Dr. Ong-Sumo, “This is becoming more common nowadays as a lot of women in this day and age are into extensive pubic hair removal, whether waxing or shaving”.  Hair removal causes minute skin injuries, with inoculation of pathogens and subsequent spread of infection.  Folliculitis happens when bacteria, normally present in the skin or vagina, get inside a cut or opening.  It exhibits itself as groups of red bumps with white heads and pus or oozing blisters.  “These women just need to be informed of the risks and of the safe methods and best practices for hair removal”, added by Dr. Ong-Sumo.

If shaving cannot at all be prevented, do so every other day with warm water, a shaving cream, and new razors, while making sure to apply moisturizing lotion afterward. Wearing breathable clothes, using clean towels, and avoiding sharing personal items are other precautionary steps we can take to prevent this infection from invading our personal space. It’s best to wash the infected area with warm water and antibacterial soap. Dry thoroughly with a fresh towel and apply antibiotic creams or gels.  Women who fail to respond to topical antibiotics should consult with a physician.

5. Bartholin’s Gland Abscess

A Bartholin’s abscess is caused by a fluid buildup in the Bartholin gland (responsible for secreting fluids to lubricate the vestibule and vagina) due to an obstruction caused by infection or injury.  The pus often shows polymicrobial infection and contain a wide range of bacteria homogeneous to the normal flora of the vagina.  Symptoms include acute vulvar pain, pain during intercourse, difficulty in walking or sitting and sometimes, fever.  Safer sex practices and good hygiene habits may help to prevent infection of a cyst and the formation of an abscess.

The good news is that these five-common infection-related reproductive diseases are completely avoidable and treatable. Because these diseases should be taken seriously, Dr. Ong-Sumo’s final recommendation is to consistently practice good personal hygiene from wearing a cotton underwear for better absorption of moisture and perspiration, keeping yourself dry and clean, avoiding scented feminine wash, pads or tampons, to tight-fitting pants and jeans, will reduce the risk of developing these infections. 

And according to the words of our discerning doctor, “Making yogurt with live cultures a regular part of your diet might help to restore a healthful yeast balance in the vagina.”

On top of these best practices, opt for an unscented and 100 percent sterilized virgin cotton material for your sanitary pad like Jeunesse Anion.  In a laboratory test conducted by the Institute of Chemistry, UP Diliman in correlation with previously published scientific studies and journals, it validates that Jeunesse Anion pad’s specifically modified cellulose-based hydrogels are not only super-absorbent, hypoallergenic, and non-toxic, but also exhibits anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and odor-reducing benefits! 

The positive ions embedded in the material attracts the negatively charged bacterial cells, which dramatically results to cell death thus declining bacterial population by 99.9 percent. However, remember that a regular visit to your OB-Gyn will ensure your reproductive health is in tip-top shape!

Available at Watsons, Mercury Drug Stores, and other leading supermarkets and groceries nationwide, Jeunesse Anion also offers ultra day non-wing, ultra day pad, ultra night pad, all-night pad, and panty liner to help every woman to go through their period with ease and comfort.  For hassle-free shopping with the convenience of delivery straight to your doorstep, visit www.lazada.com.ph and www.shopee.ph.

Why Glutathione is Necessary for Survival!!!

Hello po! As a blogger, I have been lucky enough to get some glutathione supplements for review or as a token.

shiseido pure white, sky collagen complex, daiso beauty white, ingredients,

But gosh, eversince I stopped taking glutathione, my period became irregular again. :( Not only that, I've had major zitfest, huhuhu...

They erupted severe on my forehead, jawline, couple on the cheeks and nose. Now I am not 100% sure that stopping gluta was the cause, could be the different new skin care products that I am always trying out (can't stick to one brand due to review requirements).

I was actually asked what I need gluta for since I have fair skin even though I stopped taking gluta for months (well I was born with white skin due to Chinese/Spanish blood). But now after this rest period, I am consuming again this "Master Anti-Oxidant" for its health benefits.

glutathione, whitening,
Shiseido is whiter and bigger than Daiso. Capsules are Sky.

Now here are the 3 recent ones I took.

1. Sky Collagen Complex

Now we see in big words, COLLAGEN and not necessarily glutathione, but I still included this here. One of its ingredients is Methionine, which is an amino acid. Methionine and cysteine affect glutathione levels. Also it has the precursor glycine.

Sky Collagen Complex

My bottle of Sky Collagen Complex is complimentary. Its effect on me was firmer skin, felt healthier (almost everyone around is sick with flu), also stronger joints. But it did not clear pimples.

Sky by Nurse Pharma also has their own glutathione supplement, see my review HERE

2. Daiso Select Beauty White

At Php 77 a pack good for 15 days, Daiso Beauty White was the cheapest gluta, I think.
Made in Japan.

Instructions for use: Take 2 tabs a day.

Contains:
Vitamin C - 2000 mg
L -Cystine - 1000 mg

I cant say if this is effective for sure coz I only took this for 3 days, and then I gave this to my hubby.

Daiso Select Beauty White


3. Shiseido Pure White

Price Php 1700 per bottle (240 pills) good for 1 month.
Made in Japan.

Instructions for use - 8 pills per day.

Was actually buying gluta, but the seller insists that this is gluta (tho I can't find it in the ingredients list, after all it was written in Japanese). This was highly recommended, seller said she and her fam takes this so I bought it.

It has outer plastic shrink wrap covering the box. Instead of cotton, there was crumpled plastic inside the bottle at the top, and also a dessicant at the bottom. This does not look cheap at all. Packaging looks classy.

Shiseido Pure White ingredients

Ingredients, formulated amount:

  • Goji Berry Extract- Enriched in ingredients that support radiance and beauty. 1,500 mg/equivalent to approximately 2,550 mg of goji berries.
  • Palm Oil / Tocotrienol- Rich in tocotrienols, or also known as next generation's vitamin E, it does not lose to the glare of the sun and helps to support every day's beauty. 7.5 mg (as tocotrienols).
  • Lychee Seed Extract- This fruit was favored by Yokihi (Princess Yang Guifei), it is an indispensible ingredient for those aiming for a higher class of beauty. 50 mg.
  • Coix Seed Extract- Enriched in amino acids and beneficial for beauty and health. 25 mg.
  • Chrysanthemum Extract- Enriched in flavonoids, a type of polyphenol, it is an ingredient to make every day bright and clear. 5 mg.
  • Vitamin C- 500 mg.

Shiseido Pure White review
Oriental beauty, radiant and clear.

Now I am taking Shiseido Pure White just today. I will update this blog if there is any significant improvement with this, after all this was pretty expensive. I am using this along with Althea Skin Relief Spot Film Gel to clear the acne in my jawline.

Well okay I admit the title may sound exag!!! But it makes sense for me. City life- with all its stressors and pollutants-  makes it necessary for us to take care of both outside and inside to survive.

To keep my sanity intact- and away from the pangs of depression- it may sound shallow but I want to look my best. Words can and do cut deep, and when some cruel people say mean things it can lead to a downward spiral of despair... It's nice that I found gluta as a somehow aid to help me by. :)

Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser


Officially, how to use:

Dampen the skin and apply on a small amount. Gently massage onto the skin in circular motions for 5-10 seconds before rinsing off with water.

But personally, these are my 2 methods in using Althea Korea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser:

1. With dry hands, massage it on dry face for 60 seconds then rinse off, just like in using cleansing oils. But this one does not blur the vision as much. Also, it hardly emulsifies or turns milky upon contact with water when rinsing.

2. Massage it on dry face then tissue off. Particularly useful when there is no water available.

top filipina beauty blogger, best beauty blogger philippines,
Half face test, wiped off with tissue.

My thoughts:

  • Love the refreshing green tea scent.
  • Sealed twice for protection (shrink plastic plus seal in opening).
  • Gentle, did not irritate or cause allergic reaction or pimples.
  • Removes stubborn makeup.
  • I double cleanse my face even without using makeup because of the extreme pollution. This is my first step then I follow with regular face wash.
  • This is like a facial cleanser in that it's light and face does not feel sticky after rinsing, but it does not bubble up or lather.
  • I can also use this to clean foundation brushes of hard to remove oily / cream residue.
