Haru’s Quarantine Skin Care

Haru's ECQ Skin Care

It’s day 63 of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in my country due to COVID-9. While the whole world waits for the vaccine, a grand majority of us is in our homes, trying our best not to overwhelm our health care system more. With this comes with work arrangements for us to be working from home. Being work from home has its perks:

  • Savings in time from my daily drive. Nope, didn’t miss the traffic – not even one bit. Imagine, 1.5-2hrs of rush hour traffic, one-way for 9-12 km! It’s insane.
  • I get to sleep longer since I don’t need to wake up so early – like 4:30AM early for work. My daily drive and prep adds to my sleep time which is awesome.
  • Savings from gas. I think I saved around $23.53 per week, or that’s been around $211.76 in total
  • I get to eat meals with my family. In fact, I also get to eat meals on-time regularly and healthy snacks.
  • I don’t have to think what to wear daily – except when I have video conferences.
  • With gaining time, I managed to clear out my closet, drawers, and room.
  • Also, I get to consistently do my skin care routine. I get to regularly do facial masks now!

Speaking of skin care, my holy grail quarantine skin care are:

Benefit: the POREfessional Primer Review

Good Day! And a belated Happy New Year to you! I missed posting for say…. 4-5 months? I’ve been busy with a lot of stuff like work, personal life, and gaming. Come to think of it, I’ve been going out a whole lot less lately due to gaming. Hehehe.

So to start of with the my first post of the year right, I’d go to the product I love dearly. It’s Benefit’s the POREfessional Primer.


I came across this over my fave make-up blogger years back. I got so curious so I asked a friend of mine to get me a set with this primer and their popular tint in the US. And the rest is history.


Note to reader: This is a picture-heavy post.

Haru’s Thoughts: My Guild Wars 2 Adventure (So Far)

Hi Everyone!

I had been busy with gaming work for months already. I guess it’s my way of an escape (aside from all sorts of stuff I’ve been doing). Why do I exactly play online games? Isn’t it a bit contradicting to expectations – girl ❤ make-up (and spend tons over it) and MMORPG? Let me count the ways.

I’ve been playing Guild Wars 2 since… October 2012 (NA Server – Blackgate). BUT! My account got banned since they thought my card, the one I used to pay for my account, was a stolen card (WHAT!?!?!). It got reversed so totally fine. I recreated my character last week of December 2012, still in NA Server, Blackgate, and the rest is history. So you might think I might be a pro at this point. NAH! I only get to play Friday and Saturday nights (not even every week), sometimes Sunday, and no-work-next-day nights (or no work day). I haven’t been consistently online – just casual… Extremely casual.

After 3 years since game launch, they finally released their major patch yet – Heart of Thorns – last October 23, 2015. And I did pre-purchase it a week before launch.


More on my Guild Wars 2 Adventure right after the jump! Welcome to my alternate world – Tyria!

NOTE TO READER: This is a text and picture heavy post. This is also lengthy. This has nothing to do with reviews (sort of). If you are looking for one, kindly refer to the post previous to this or, utilize the search bar on the right, and type “Review”.

Anime: Uta no Prince-Sama: Maji 1000% Review

So over the holidays, I did absolutely NOTHING but play Guild Wars 2. I finally was able to finish all chapters of the Living Story Season 2 so far. I think there is a patch by Jan 13, so I better check it out by then.


This weekend, I watched STRAIGHT Uta no Prince-Sama: Maji 1000% (known as UtaPri). I loved it so much that there was intensity 4-ish earthquake that early morning (I watched from 10PM-4:30AM), around 3AM, I didn’t feel it!


 Picture grabbed from Google. I don’t own this.

Check out why I loved it!

Nagomi Japanese Restaurant: A Tribute Review

For the longest time I have been reviewing make-up and skin care. I’ve always wanted to show my foodie side.

And this will be the start.  Meet my favorite Japanese restaurant in the Metro – Nagomi Japanese Restaurant.

Ok, used to be. As of this writing, it is already closed I think since late last year. This is a tribute review.

Sunplay: Super Block SPF 130 PA +++ Review

How are you everyone? I know, I know I haven’t been posting much reviews lately. My paying job is requiring more from me. But I’ve been trying a lot of stuff that will interest you behind the scenes. All good!


Since it’s still cold in the northern hemisphere, I bet most of you are thinking of your summer getaway – beaches, sun and tan. Add coconut trees in the background too. But before you hit the beach, ensure that your skin is protected.


And this is what I brought with me when I went to the beach last December. Look at that SPF and PA value!

Random Thoughts: And because I want to share to you the beautiful Boracay

Just because I want to share to you the beautiful white sand beach of Boracay. This is were I went to with my family last Dec. 7-10.


I finally got my white dress and hat on the beach during a sunset photo!

Peripera: Peri’s Tint Milk in #02 Milky Peach Review

I have this Milky Tint craze going on. I get my hands on milk tints whenever I can. I’ve been controlling myself from hauling Tony Moly’s while  I haven’t used the ones from The Face Shop and Etude House.

But when I saw Peripera’s Peri’s Tint Milk go on sale from a reseller, I just had to get it.

And it arrived in my house 2 days after.

They say this is one of the items that made Peripera famous even if it’s a new company. I wonder if it’s true.
