Biore UV Perfect Bright Face Milk: My Holy Grail Sunscreen

After what seemed to be an endless hunt for the perfect sunscreen for the face, I have finally found my HG! A close friend who is a fellow skin care enthusiast recommended Biore to me because it’s really good… so I decided to check it out at the nearest Watsons. There were two kinds on display- a pink one and a blue one. I decided to go for the pink one because of the word bright (and because pink caught my attention). True enough, the Biore UV Perfect Bright Face Milk turns out to be an amazing product. It’s made in Japan, and we all know that means high quality. I think it’s even better than Clinique’s City Block SPF 45.

PROS:

  1. It’s lightweight, so it doesn’t leave a sticky feeling on the face. Its texture is similar to Shiseido‘s liquid foundation.
  2. It can act as a makeup base, and it gives my skin this light pinkish glow. It also does not leave an ugly white cast on your face. It’s also good for covering pores! It mixes well with my CosRx CC Cushion (another amazing product that I will blog about later).
  3. It is light-scented, and it doesn’t smell like the usual sunblock.
  4. It has SPF 50+, which is pretty high!
  5. It helps make my skin less oily even after a hot and sweaty day.

CON:

It’s a bit pricey at Php380 for 30ml, but then again, you get what you pay for! On Amazon, it’s $7.86 for 30ml.

I have yet to try the blue and white variants. Have you tried any Biore products? What do you think of them?

Scripture Swaddles: LukieBear Baby

I received a beautiful present from a very good friend, and it’s called the LukieBear Baby Scripture Swaddle. I am a fan of muslin cloth for babies because it’s made of 100% cotton. My one-month-old loves to be swaddled, and this was the perfect welcome gift for him.

“Oh how wide and long and high and deep is the love of God.”

He doesn’t seem to be very happy in this picture but I swear he was in a better mood after being swaddled:

Enjoy hugging and swaddling your little one! 🙂

7 Food Art Creations by Mrs. Domesticated

I met Mrs. Domesticated way back in college when she was still Ms. Tina Langit. She was one of the most popular faces (and voices) on campus. I admired her a lot because as a student leader in UP Diliman, she was always on top of her game! Now that she is a wife and certified alpha mom, Mrs. Christina Langit-Bagro (@mrsdomesticated) continues to soar high by taking motherhood to a whole new level. She makes food art creations for her kids!

I seriously feel like I do not have the time (nor the talent) to create carefully crafted meals for my children, but I got inspired after seeing Mrs. Domesticated’s Instagram feed (#momgoals).

So what did I learn from Mrs. Domesticated when it comes to making food art?

1. You need to plan ahead. Know which food you plan on making and list the ingredients for the meal. Cheese is super essential.

2. Think of how you will arrange the food. You can check out Pinterest, YouTube, or Google for inspiration.

3. Do it for your kids. Seeing your kids happy with their food is worth the time and the effort.

Check out some of her creations:
