Sample Room: Review of Safeguard Derma Sense Gently Cleanses Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser

I have been using Safeguard bar soaps since I was a kid and even until now. It is our top brand in choosing which bar soap to buy whenever we do our grocery shopping. When I found out that Safeguard has released their Derma Sense product line along with body washes and facial cleansers, I knew that they would be good. Well, I was right. These products are getting good reviews online. 😀

I have tried the Safeguard Derma Sense Gently Cleanses Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser which I got from Sample Room. By the way, the large Sample Room paper bag now have the nice printed art just like their small ones. Cute! 😉

I am lucky I was still able to get a sample of this product from Sample Room. When they initially had this in their website, I was not able to get one since a lot of people got way ahead of me until I got the In Stock: 0 status. They got restocked one day and, finally, I got mine!!! Yey! 😀

Review: FS Cosmetics Powder Blush

Since I love blushes, I got so excited when I saw the FS Cosmetics Powder Blush in Warm Chiffon in my May 2015 BDJ Box: Kiss Dry Goodbye! Another blush to try out!!! 😀

Well, not as a blush. Read on why…

Product Description (taken from the FS Cosmetics website):

Silky-soft powder blush blends smoothly and easily for a streak-free, natural finish look.

Given that this is a blush, I would love to see the shade from the outside. If it has a transparent top cover, it would be better. Mirror dilemma? It could be placed underneath the powder where you flip it up to see the mirror.

When I saw the shade name, I thought that Warm Chiffon would be a rosy type of color. Well, it’s not. Upon opening the compact, I saw that the color is a medium, skin-toned like shade. I immediately thought that this would not work well as a blush. It can work for contouring.

With that, I think that blushes should have shades that could really be used as a blush. For me, it is kind of confusing to see blush shades that should rather be used as a contour powder.

The compact also includes a brush inside. Since this is intended to be used as a blush, I think that this is fine. However, given that the shade is not so much for that purpose, I cannot use this. I will rather go for the usual contour brushes.

Bow Sandals from Aly’s Wonderland

Just like how we ended up getting our own Tomato wallets, it was almost the same story with that of our bow sandals from Aly’s Wonderland. Haha! 😛 My friend (Caryl) saw this post in alyswonderland888’s instagram account.


She suggested that the three of us (including our other friend, Ela) get our own pairs in black color. This time, I really insisted that we get our own pairs in different colors. Oh my! It was the same chaotic and headaching discussion. *Yup, friends can get so crazy…* In the end, I won! Haha! Yey! 😛

Here’s mine!!! 😀 I got it in light blue.

It actually reminds me of the color of Cinderella’s ball gown in the movie.

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. 😀
