I had my nails done! Ok, I know, it’s mundane, but hear me out. I do the dishes, do hand wash laundry every now and then on delicates, I cook, I clean, so nails are usually just cleaned but not polished. I clip my nails but I seldom get manicures. So seldom that it feels like a treat for myself when I do. And this sure is a treat to myself because as soon as I can leave my house, that first thing I plotted to do was go to Dior and get myself these two awesome blue shades from the Dior Summer 2018 collection.
It’s the last week of January already! Time sure flies, I haven’t even greeted our readers a happy new year. So while January hasn’t ended, happy new year, my pretties! 😁 I hope you all had a great new year celebration and no injuries due to firecrackers — that are already banned, by the way!– and I hope there was an abundance of great food, bottomless booze, and awesome company.
What’s in store for Glam Love this year?
Last August 17, I tagged along Shabby to this Rustan’s Beauty Addict Beautiful You convention in Makati. In all honesty, I came for the drinks (haha!) and checking the goods was second priority. At some point that night, I ended up in Chanel, swatching their Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour, boy oh boy, I fell in love with one particular shade: 154 Experimente.
What I’m going to share this time aren’t products that I currently have, but more of a wishlist than anything else. I have experienced using the products shown in this article a few times since last year through facial services offered by Dior Skincare Suite in Makati. And since I really liked the products used on ma face, I might as well share my experience.
The Clinique’s Clinical Clearing Gel is something that I use at night, after I’ve cleansed my face and right before I use a moisturizer, and on occasions (which is often) that I can feel a swell on my face that indicates an upcoming pimple.
Claim to fame: Daily treatment gel provden to give you clearer skin. Fast-drying, oil-free formula goes to work immediately to help clean blemishes, promote healing, prevent breakouts.
Directions: Apply a thin layer to entire face twice a day after cleansing. Or spot-apply if you are using another leave-on blemish treatment.
Taking over for day two of Skin Care week, let me introduce you to my new best friend, the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Cleansing Bar for Face and Body. Setting aside that the name of the soap is quite a mouthful, you might ask, why a soap bar? Isn’t there a cleansing gel or liquid cleanser that can work on your acne? To be honest, I have tried the cleansing foam, the cleansing gel, the liquid cleanser… I’ve tried them all but it’s just not working well enough for me.
