Review: Pond’s Flawless White Brightening Night Cream

Getting enough sleep at night is essential in keeping your skin healthy and radiant. This is because your whole body, including your skin, goes into repair mode during your sleep. This is the time when the skin cell regeneration is high and makes you look fresh and recharged the next day.

Well, as we grow older, that might not be enough as our sleep routine would need more backup to do its job. This is where a night cream comes into place. What can a night cream do for our skin? Here is the list as stated in the StyleCraze website:

  1. Night cream supplies moisture to the dry parts of your face. Therefore, your face is kept hydrated.
  2. It soothes your face.
  3. It also ensures that your skin has an even complexion along with having a finer skin texture.
  4. Your night cream boosts collagen in your skin.
  5. The cream also helps in better blood circulation.
  6. The wrinkles and other lines on your face get reduced.
  7. One major role that a night cream plays is that it prevents your skin from sagging.
  8. It makes your skin soft and supple.
  9. Your aging skin may not look old anymore.
  10. It helps your skin to restore its elasticity.
  11. Helps in renewal of the cells and nourishes your skin.

Luckily, I have found a suitable night cream for my skin. It is the Pond’s Flawless White Brightening Night Cream that I got from my March 2015 BDJ Box: Pond’s. 😀

Beautifully designed Grendha sandals are on 15% discount

If you are looking for durable yet stylish sandals, Grendha would always be my top recommendation. I have always loved their designs and I like that they last long due to the quality of the materials used.  I have been wearing Grendha sandals even before I got interested in blogging. Until now, I am still in love with this brand.

Last week, I visited the SM Store Shoe Department in Makati to reward myself with a new pair of sandals. I went straight to see the available designs of Grendha. Luckily, all pairs are on 15% discount so I decided to pick two pairs. 😉

Here are the pairs that I bought. The intricate details are just nicely done! 🙂

My Chic Tomato Wallet

A friend of mine (Caryl) told me that she wanted to buy a wallet that she saw from another friend. I got interested since I would also like to replace my old wallet. I have been looking for a nice-looking wallet for some time now but they are so pricey. Those that I saw range from Php1,500+ to Php2,500+. I actually like the style but not really the price for just a wallet.

Going back… 🙂 My friend referred to this Tomato online shop where the Tomato Mod Spirit Wallet is being sold. I loved it in an instant! For the price of only Php500, it is such a good deal!!! 😀

Product Description (taken from the Tomato website):

Keep every cent and bill intact with this faux leather wallet in beige with textured black complements and gold accents. Opens to a coin purse and an extra zipper pouch for storage. Also has storage for credit cards, ID and cash. Clasp closure protection.

Length: 19cm
Width: 3.5cm
Height: 10cm

There are actually four colors available (Beige, Gray, Green and Red). Also, our other friend (Ela) joined us and we had this chaotic yet super fun conversation of what color to get. Priceless moment! 😀

In the end, the three of us decided to go for the beige one. Haha! 😛


What I initially liked in this wallet is that it somehow looks like a clutch bag. It does not look like the typical style of wallets. It looks simple yet very chic and stylish. 😉
