Review: Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes

This is the second time that I was able to try makeup remover wipes from Nivea. The first one that I tried was the Nivea 3-in-1 Daily Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes. This time, I am going to give a review for the Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes which I got from my May 2015 BDJ Box: Kiss Dry Goodbye!

Product Description (taken from the Nivea website):

Gently cleanse and tone the face, neck and eye area, for soft, soothed skin.

Product Description (printed on the product packaging):


  • Gently cleanses, removing make-up and waterproof mascara.
  • Leaves skin feeling hydrated & soft.
  • The formula with Almond Oil is mild and nourishing and is suitable for dry and sensitive skin.

The skin is gently cleanses, hydrated and soothed, looking healthy and beautiful.

Upon lifting the flap, the mild scent of the wipes is already noticeable. It smells nice but, given that this is said to be suitable for sensitive skin, this might be better if it is unscented. This is because those with sensitive skin might have some issues using products that are scented.

This is actually my second time to use My Choice products since I also got products from the said brand in a previous BDJ Box. These were the My Choice Carrot Spa Salt and the My Choice Carrot Hand and Body Lotion. This time, I will give the review for the Goat Milk variant.

First off, the review for the My Choice Goat Milk Pure Herbal Soap.

So far, this is the most unique bar soap that I have ever tried. As you can see, there are white chunks inside the bar soap. I am assuming these are chunks of goat milk.

This plastic container has also been used to mold the soap along with the goat milk chunks in it. This is to ensure that the chunks would stay in place.

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: 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. 😀

Review: Sunkiller Cool Perfect Strong SPF50+ PA+++

Beat the summer heat with Sunkiller Cool Perfect Strong SPF50+ PA+++!!! 😀

It is a good thing that I have discovered this product through BDJ Box. It is actually included in my January-February 2015 BDJ Box: Kawaii Must-Haves. This has been my skin’s best friend this summer season and, so far, I am loving it. This is the most interesting sunblock that I have tried. It has that fresh, slightly minty feel when you apply it on your skin. Aside from that, it has a high level of sun protection (SPF 50+ and PA+++).

Review: Pond’s White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel

I just love the feeling of fresh and clean skin. This is why I always make sure to cleanse twice a day: at morning and at night. It is also important that the cleanser you use does not dry up your skin. I could recommend a new product from Pond’s that could do just that. It is the Pond’s White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel which I got from my March 2015 BDJ Box: Pond’s. This is actually my current favorite facial wash. 😀
