IMG_6916Today is Budget Buy Special, My picks for October Budget Buy Special are Ponds White Beauty Toner and Myra Vita Glow BB Cream. Not everyone of us are in budget to purchase expensive beauty products like Clinique, Clarins, Lancome, Body Shop and many more, but the good news is there is a lot of inexpensive brands in the Philippines that are available almost everywhere—Glam works, Myra, Ponds, Olay, Clean n Clear and more. So Budget Buy October Special is for Ponds White Beauty and Myra Vitaglow BB Cream.

My experience on using the product I used this Ponds White Beauty Pore Refining when I was a few years younger for about 1-2 months just to see if it could solve my no.1 skin problemーoily and unsightly pores. After each application there are a little bit stinging effect and red patchess on my face since my skin is very sensitive, setting this aside, it also has benefits on my skin, it manages well the oil production resulting to lesser oil and it refines my pores, after all I switched to other brands like Shiseido Skin Care and Burts Bees hoping to find the best product that would compliment the sensitivity of my skinーit is a none stop journey but right now I am happily engaged on my Clinique line. This product is a bit harsh for sensitive skin because of its alcohol content, but nevertheless a promising, product.

Pros Inexpensive Facial Toner. Easy to purchase, available at every store. Attractive packaging and bottle shape. Effective in continouos use. Cons Not suitable for sensitive skin because it is an alcohol-base toner. Nothing more.
My final recommendation I am no dermatologist, Im speaking based on my experience. If your skin type could tolerate such alcohol-base toners and in a tight budget then you might want to try this product. Ponds has a brand and popular in Philippines and other asian countries, no wonder why they are still in the market.

My impression in using this product first of all I got really disappointed bigtimeーIt has a shiny shimmery splendid and is a bit visible when applied, just think of it like a tiny glitters sprinkled on your bb cream (oh-no!) Not again! I thought this Myra BB cream is the better version of their tinted moisturizer that has shiny shimmery splendidーShout with me: (Not again!). I got very sad to found out that this Myra Vitaglow BB Cream is just like their tinted moisturizerーerr!. I love Myra products especially their lotions, It is a very versatile product for me because of its very lightweight lotion, that my skin could easily absorb, but with their tinted moisturizer and bb cream is such a fail one, I am sorry but I do really hate itーproduct details are such a big deal for me. Setting the shiny shimmery splendid thingy aside, without it this MyRa Vitaglow BB cream would be an awesome product, because it is indeed a great moisturizer and sunscreen. Sorry Myra BB cream I couldnt use you anymore not even at homeーhuhubells


IMG_6931My final recommendations if you dont mind the shiny shimmery and looking for inexpensive BB cream that has a sunscreen and has a lot of benefits, then this product is for you. It only has a slight coverage on the dark spots but excellent on keeping dry skin at the bay.

Pros Inexpensive BB Cream. The tube packaging is very hygienic. Comes with a slim and small tube. Very handy. Contains minerals and Vitamin E. It has SPF 15. A little goes a long way.Cons It has tiny bits of glitters. A bit oily on face when applied too much product. Minimum effect of sunscreen.
