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:

Skinfood: Good Afternoon Berry Berry Tea BB SPF 35PA++ Review

Gah!!!! I’m really sorry for slacking off for blog posts. I’m basically rushing over everything. I know, I know. One can never run out of stuff to do at work, but one can also drown in work. XD


Right now, I’m at home, waiting for my colleague to be in the train station.I will pick her up and we’d go to our location for pilot test.  Why not convert my idle time to something productive, right?


I will review today one of my make-up kit staples – Good Afternoon Berry Berry Tea BB SPF 35PA++ from Skinfood!

See? Such nice nice packaging ❤ Jump to see more of the product!

Skinfood: Milk Mania Cleansing Foam Review

Hi everyone! I missed you so much! April and May had been crazy! There was so much heat in my country that even if you sit still , you’d perspire! It’s the horribly high temp (35-27 degrees) plus 100% humidity. >.> The downside in living in a tropical country.


So it’s rather important that you should assess your make-up and skin care arsenal – to ensure they match your weather,wherever you may be right now. For hot and humid weather (like here!) it’s good that you keep light warpaint make-up on, and a nice cleanser and light moisturizer at night.


With this, I introduce to you one of my HG facial foams – Milk Mania Cleansing Foam from Skinfood!

Haru’s Product Haul: February – March 2014 (The Body Shop, Tony Moly, Missha, Etude House, Skinfood, EOS, Stilla and Victoria’s Secret)

A gloomy summer day everyone! It’s been EXTREMELY HOT here on my side of the planet for the last few weeks. And today, as I came home from work, it’s very gloomy – for summer, at least. It’s been raining like cats and dogs on the other parts of the country. But here in one of the CBD’s, it’s been scorching. So it’s very nice to have a cloudy/gloomy morning, once in a while. I know a lot of yo would trade in your Gotham City for my city. Summer’s such a perfect beach weather, except that you’re not in the beach. Aww. 😦


And another way to brighten up one’s make-up fan day is with a haul!

Skinfood: Fruits Brunch Lip Box – #3 Cafe Cinnamon Review

I love Cinnamon. And Coffee. And nude to brown colored lippies. So should Fruits Brunch Lip Box in #3 Cafe Cinnamon be lovely as swell given that it combines all 3 into 1? Would it have a coffee and cinnamon scent? Would it?


I have previously reviewed the #2 Tomato from the same line, so now I finally had the chance to review the  #3 Cafe Cinnamon!


Another item from my make-up box storage.

Haru’s Product Haul: December 30, 2013 (Skinfood)

We went to Marquee Mall in Angeles City yesterday to buy some stuff for family. Happy! I know Skinfood has a sale since they informed me via text message weeks back. All of their items in store are marked down. By how much? It depends per product.


And yet again, they have this promo that if you reach this value (P1,000 at least), you’d get freebies. Each amount has different offers. And since I am a member and their loyal customer, they gave me the privilege to choose the freebie. Ha!

Skinfood: Vita Tok Lipstick – #OR02 GrapeFruit Tok Tok Review

I haven’t been discussing much on my favorite brand when it comes to Korean Skin Care and make-up. So let me put up one.


Meet my Vita Tok Lipstick from Skinfood!



And I bought it at 50% off from the mall too! 🙂

Product Haul: February – March 5, 2013 (Missha, Nature Republic, Etude House and Skinfood)

I know I haven’t been posting lately – work, personal life, and health issues. Been sick for the past few days, and such a horrible timing too!

Since I’m sick, I don’t normally try new items. Most of my skin care is currently at HG items (except for facial wash, hehe!). Likewise to some make-up.


However, what I was busy to for the past few days was hauling items. Yes, hauling. And almost every week, I would get something off the store.


See what are my recent hauls!

Skinfood: Sweet Almond Eyeliner in #1 Almond Black Review

So sorry readers! My posts had been irregular since October. It’s been crazy lately! Aside from me recovering my pocket/credit card from my non-cosmetic splurges (that means you, Starbucks Promo!)  and saving up for the Christmas Season x iPhone 5 x car maintenance, work had been eating up much of my non-work time (time allocated for my personal/family life, blogging, writing, researching and buying make-up, etc). Even sleep time! I had been sleeping for 2-4 hours a day on an average weekday. >.> It’s insane! So my dark circles are more prominent on my pale, anemic skin. :))) And I’m getting bruises all over. Don’t know how I got that.


So while I was looking at my backlogs, I decided to talk about Skinfood’s Sweet Almond Eyeliner in #1 Almond Black.


I never had appreciated eyeliners. I don’t know how to use them, and it gives more emphasis on my dark circles (and I don’t need more of that).


When the mall store of Skinfood had a sale, I picked up Sweet Almond Eyeliner in #1 Almond Black. Why? Because I didn’t have ANY eyeliners in my make-up arsenal.

This was at 50%, so what have I got to lose?

Skinfood: Milk Shake Point Make-up Remover Review

I was out the entire day yesterday so I wasn’t able to post. It was so insightful but very, very tiring. I’ll try to make it up for the lost day.


It’s been raining hard here lately. And I bet a lot of people would wear heavy-duty, waterproof make-up. Isn’t it such a bother to remove at night? It normally takes me ages with my regular facial wash to remove it, so it got me convinced to buy those make-up removers. Yes, I then went again to my favorite Skinfood mall store and picked up this most peculiar looking make-up remover.

Doesn’t look so peculiar? 2 colored make-up remover!

*Note: This post will be more picture heavy than normal. You have been warned.
