Headed to Watson’s last night to get some supplies (and by supplies I mean hair dye and a foundation sponge which I forgot to buy) and came home with these.
Left to right: Daggett and Ramsdell Knee and Elbow Lightening Cream (PHP295), Olay Total Effects(PHP700ish), Kolours in Toasted Anise (PHP230ish), Sensa Tea Tree Oil foaming facial wash (PHP138), and Sally Hansen facial hair bleach (PHP365).
This was an impulse buy and this should teach me not to do it again. While people obsess about lightening their underarms, I look at my knees and go “meh.” I dislike them: they’re fat and my childhood scars make them look dark. I googled and read that dark knees are caused by dryness and dead skin cells; I guess I need to make a conscious effort to moisturize my legs everyday and not just when I’m going out wearing shorts, skirts, and short dresses.
Anyway, I googled for product reviews when I got home and boy, what a disappointment: it doesn’t work, according to those who bought this from Amazon! I’ll still keep using it, though, because it just might work for me.
One thing I don’t like about this: it smells a bit like stale saliva (ewwww, I know). I’m thinking they were going for a cinnamon scent but they did a half-ass job of it.
Due to perpetual pimples, I went back to using good old Ivory soap for my face. It doesn’t seem to do anything for my face (still have pimples!) so I’m testing different facial cleansers. I love the minty (I think) smell of this. It’s very gentle, though, which kinda sucks for me because I like feeling a little cold sting on my face, heh.
If this works, I’ll be getting the toner.
This one is for bleaching/lightening my eyebrows. I haven’t tried it yet, will do later today or this weekend.
Aaaand we all know what Olay Total Effects and Kolours hair dye look like.
This is my second time using Olay TE; the first was about two years ago and it did nothing for my skin. I’m kind of an idiot, I know. I plan to use it as my nighttime moisturizer because I tend to oil up during the day (I used to have normal skin but then the insane summer heat played all sorts of funny stuff on me). I know I should’ve gotten the one for oily/acne-prone skin but I think we’ve already established that I am, indeed, an idiot.
I’m still looking for the perfect daytime moisturizer. Currently, I am trying out Garnier’s Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream but I don’t think I’ll be using this after I use up the little sachet because the last thing I want is my face to be lighter/whiter than the rest of me. It’s thick, matte, and a bit hard to spread.
What moisturizer do you use? =)
