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:

The Face Shop: Face it 4D Perfection Concealer Kit SPF30 in NB23 Review

Hi Everyone! I’ve been absent yet again into blogging. Work life had been really trecherous that it’s taking  toll on my health and on my family life. There are just too damn many soulless being here and all they care about is themselves. Sad reality of the work force. I never knew negativity of some people are like a disease – it gets on to you. I really need a break. And I’ve been gaining a LOT of weight too just because of it! Noooo! ~

Enough of these depressing matters, on with the review!

 

The Face Shop in my country NEVER (at least, to the 5-7 stores I visited) had the product I’m about to review sold. So I got it from my online reseller when she had a sale.

???????????????????????????????

It’s The Face Shop’s Face it 4D Perfection Concealer Kit SPF30 in NB23!

The Face Shop: Cherry Blossom Shampoo Review


It’s been very dry and cold here lately. And it’s making my allergies way worse at night (itchy eyes!). I’ve also swatched a great product just over the weekend, but it’s not what I’m going to post now.

 

Part of my Korean product experience was to actually try out some of their shampoo.

The Face Shop: Lovely ME:EX Milky Tint in 01 Baby Pink Review

There was a phase in my make-up life that I simply loved milky tints. I loved them so much that I bought colors from various brands such as Peripera, Etude House and The Face Shop. It didn’t matter if I had duplicate colors across the brands (example: peach from Peripera, The Face Shop and Etude House). I absolutely love them.

 

Since I’ve reviewed on my Peripera Milky Tint, let’s move to The Face Shop.Do note that this is one of the 2 colors I bought from them. Meet The Face Shop’s Lovely ME:EX Milky Tint in 01 Baby Pink.

The Face Shop: Clean Face Oil Free Sun Cream SPF 35 PA++ Review

So you thought I’d end the week without a post. You’re wrong.

 

One thing about holidays is that my projects seem to kill me when holidays are about to come, so I’d be too busy doing work. Too busy not to buy or do something holiday-related. Yes, I am part of the group who did a mad Christmas rush in bazaars and malls just because I haven’t got anyone anything 2 weeks before Christmas.

 

Enough with the holiday talk, let’s get to the review!

 

One of the things I brought with me on my 4-day birthday vacation was 3 items that protect me from the sun. One of them was The Face Shop’s Clean Face Oil Free Sun Cream.

Does this look familiar to you? This seems closely resembles their discontinued Quick & Clean Oil Free Sun Cream. They even carry the same SPF and PA category.

 

Will this be a good replacement to its elder sister?

Product Haul: November 18, 2012

Hi everyone! I know this is a very, very delayed post. But hey, better late than never. 😀

 

Since I’ve been busy with work and been saving up some money for the trip, I haven’t been buying as much like my last haul.

And yes, it’s mostly related to my incoming beach trip.

Product Comparison: Difference between The Face Shop’s Brightening Rice Water Cleansing Foam Migamisu and Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam

The Face Shop released 2 lines with almost the same name: Brightening Rice Water Migamisu and Rice Water Bright. The former is a line they replaced with the latter. Now, I’ve heard that they’ve just “repacked” the older version into the new one. I doubt about that.

 

This post is to give you a brief comparison on the 2 lines, using their cleansing foams.

Yes, I actually have both of them. Hahaha!
