Jinju White Soap REVIEW

by 7:27 PM
This Korean whitening soap is being over advertised on Facebook as I see it on my news feed very often. My curiosity tingled me again and told me to give this product a try. I am really impressed by the way their social media team promote this product online so they got me! :D

Jinju White Soap


So this soap promises to deeply cleanse, unclog and minimize pores, lighten dark areas, clear acne blemishes, remove acne scars and brighten over all complexion. Now that's big honey! Let's see! ;)

​Ingredients: Pearl Extract, Salycylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Camellia Japonica, Flower Extract, Oxalis Triangularis Extract (Love Plant), Camellia Sinesis Leaf Extract (Green Tea), Niacinamide, N-Acetyl-D-Glucosmine, Madecassoside (From Gotu Kota),Morus Alba Bark Extract (Mulberry Extract), Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Tricholoma Matsutake Extract, Broussoneta Papyrifera Bark Extract (Paper Mulberry).

P180


The product is properly boxed in a pink carton with super cool prints. I also like the texture of this soap because it feels heavy and premium. Contrary to its beautiful packaging, the soap itself looks super simple printed with the word "Jinju White".



I finished one bar of this soap for almost a month. Yes, the product lasts that long because it doesn't melt easily. With that span of time, I can tell if the product works for me or not. To be honest with you, I didn't see significant improvement on my skin's condition and complexion. I noticed a little glow on my arms and legs though. However, it is not enough for me to say that this product is super worth of our P180. I feel that this product can deliver amazing result in long term use.

On a lighter note, I really like the moisturizing effect of this soap. I can actually compare it to Dove beauty bar because my skin feels so soft and bouncy every after use. Another thing that I like about the Jinju White Soap is its fresh smell. The fragrance gives a little boost of happiness whenever I'm using it.

All in all, I can still recommend this soap to you because for me, it is the type of soap that will give you beautiful skin months after months of religiously using the product. It is not as fast as the other brand but the good thing about this soap is it is not harsh. In fact, it's moisturizing. I will still consider using this soap again if I want to rest my skin from strong whitening products. This is a good maintenance soap I must say. :)

I also made a video review for this product. You may watch it on my YouTube channel. Don't forget to subscribe.

Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid Lotion Review

by 12:05 PM
In today's blog post, I am going to share you another review of the whitening lotion that I have tried long time ago. The product that I am talking about is the Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid Lotion. If you are following this blog, you probably read my review about the partner of this lotion. The Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid Soap. I recently published my detailed review about the soap and to be honest, I am really impressed how the soap can lighten our skin fast! Can this lotion do that as well?

Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid Lotion


The perfect complement to the Kojic Bar, the new Belo Intensive Whitening Body Cream (Lotion), with Kojic Acid & Tranexamic Acid that intensively whitens skin. It has SPF 30 that protects skin against harmful UV rays.

Belo Intensive Whitening Body Cream SPF 30 is hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested.

P199.75


I am so in love with the smell of this product. It has this fresh perfume-like fragrance that makes me wanna apply this lotion more often. The cream is housed in a squeezable tube making it perfect to dispense the product hygienically. However, the excess product spills around its nozzle. I hate seeing it because it looks very unpleasant.  Look at this:


Despite the messy nozzle, I still love using this product because to be honest, it really does the job in making my skin fairer. Just like the soap, I am really amazed with the idea of combining Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid in one whitening product. Those two ingredients prevent melanin production and reduce the appearance of stubborn dark spots that do not respond to other skin lightening ingredients.

The Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid Lotion is packed with SPF 30 to help us protect from the harmful rays of the sun while our skin is still in whitening process. Hearing the word "SPF 30" makes me shiver because lotions with high SPF are usually sticky and heavy, but not this amazing cream from Belo. It is not sticky at all!



So there! I highly recommend this whitening cream because it is true to its promise and it has the ability to protect our skin while it is on its way to a better complexion. If you are looking for a whitening lotion that is not sticky, with sun protection, effective and easy to find, the Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid Lotion is the one! It is a bit pricey though but it is super worth every single centavo. :)

I also have a video review of this product on my YouTube channel. Please watch and don't forget to subscribe!

Althea Bare Essentials: A 3-Step Korean Skincare Routine

by 7:14 PM
My dermatologist once told me that skincare routine is a very personal thing. We really need to take time to know our skin better and what it truly needs. Just like my personality, I like my skincare to be so simple and easy. I hate complicating things especially that my skin is highly sensitive and acne-prone. If you have the same skin condition as mine, I bet you understand the dilemma of choosing the right product for our fragile skin.

I felt genuine happiness when I heard the news that Althea Korea has finally released their very first skincare products. I personally love the Althea's pioneer product called Althea Velvet Powder which I reviewed here. So I am expecting these products to work well too. 

Althea Bare Essentials


Complicated skincare steps block the pores and make your skin tired. Bare Essentials simplifies skincare to what your skin really needs. Infused with hydrating ingredients from the depths of nature. The set includes:

Contour Cleanser



Step 1 is the Contour Cleanser, a rich and foaming cleanser that removes impurities while improving blood circulation for that V-shaped look. It contains micro capsules to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and leaves the skin feeling cool and refreshed too!

Primer Water



Step 2 is the Primer Water. Smooth, hydrating and ever so slightly balm-like, this bottle of wonder penetrates into the layers of the skin to plump them up, prepping the skin and making it a smooth canvas for products to come.

Fixer Cream



Step 3 is the Fixer Cream. Powerful moisturizing properties are packed into this little jar that provides the skin with hydration for up to 24 hours for a fresh, revitalized complexion.



As you can see, the products are housed in a very simple containers yet they look perfectly awesome. That's the same principle this kit promises to give. An uncomplicated beauty regimen that will deliver perfection for all skin types.

I am really excited to try these amazing products and share you my full detailed review about them. Please keep posted and follow me on my social media channels: @MJAMESPEREZ on Instagram and Vanity Room Philippines on Facebook. Kamsahamnida! :)

REVIEW: Sparkling Green Grape Hand Cream by Esfolio

by 12:28 PM
If you will conduct a bag raid with me at any given time, you'll find a jar or a tube of hand cream in the pockets of my bag. I am super obsessed with hand creams because my hands are naturally dry and unrelieved. I can't imagine life without hand cream and no, I'm not exaggerating. :D I am not blessed with soft hands so a moisturizer is a must for me. In today's blog post, I am going to share you one of my favorite hand creams.

Sparkling Green Grape Hand Cream by Esfolio



This scented hand cream makes your hand more moisturized and silky smooth!

Hand creams will not only make our hands soft and moisturize, it can also serve as a hand perfume. I always want my hands to smell good especially when I'm meeting new people. I would like to leave a good impression during our first skin contact (shake hands). Having soft and good smelling hands really boosts my confidence.

I am recently loving the Sparkling Green Grape Hand Cream by Esfolio. By the way, Esfolio is one of my favorite Korean brands. I am really impressed with the packaging of this hand cream because it is housed in a tube container that can perfectly fit my bag's small pocket. I also like its leak-proof nozzle because I hate seeing my other stuff swimming with cream. No please!!



What I like the most about the Sparkling Green Grape Hand Cream by Esfolio is the moisture it gives without giving me that sticky or heavy feeling. That's actually my first criteria when buying a hand cream. It should be lightweight! Aside from making my skin super soft all day long with minimal application, I also love the lasting fragrance this amazing hand cream can provide. I am really hooked by its fresh fruity smell as it serves as a quick mood and energy booster.



If you are looking for a hand cream that works amazingly, I highly recommend the Sparkling Green Grape Hand Cream by Esfolio. I just super love it and I hope you guys can try it as well. I can't wait to hear you guys say that you are obsessed with it too. :D

Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid Soap REVIEW

by 7:10 PM
It has been a long time since I tried this product but I can still remember my experience using this most raved kojic acid soap from Belo. I recently tried the soap again so I am excited to share you my detailed review about the Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid Soap. I gave my short review about this product on my blog post about whitening soaps in the Philippines few years ago. Click here to read the said blog.

What?
Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid Soap


Belo’s most intensive whitening bar yet that boasts of the unique combination of today’s two most powerful whitening actives.

Kojic Acid is an organic compound that effectively inhibits the production of melanin giving skin a visibly lighter appearance.

Tranexamic Acid is a peptide proven to inhibit inflammation and melanin formation. It is ideal for stubborn dark spots that do not respond to other skin lightening ingredients.


Where to buy?
Watsons, Supermarket, Mercury Drugstores

How much?
P59.75 (65g)



First of all, I am super impressed on the fragrance of this soap because it has this very pleasant smell that makes me feel fresh every after bath. I also want to commend the detailed packaging of this product because everything you need to know about the soap is clearly printed on the box. Another thing that I like about this product is the ingredients. The kojic acid and tranexamic acid are brilliantly combined together. Those two are very powerful whitening ingredients.



The soap produces a generous amount of bubbles which I super like because it makes my bathing time enjoyable and not so boring. I also like the fact that it really makes my skin whiter. It is not super fast but at least, I can confidently say that this product works. I noticed a whiter complexion after finishing 4 bars of this kojic acid soap.

I experienced tingling sensation and excessive dryness using the Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid Soap so I don't recommend this product if you have sensitive and dry skin. That's actually a down side for me because I have hypersensitive skin and it makes my skin looks like a chalkboard. Yes, it is effective in terms of skin lightening but I don't want to compromise my skin's overall health just to make it fairer.

All in all, I can still recommend this soap if you have a normal skin type. This can really whiten the skin but make sure to still moisturize your entire body after bath to maintain the moisture level on your skin. Will I repurchase again? Hmmm... Maybe!

I created a video version of this review on my YouTube Channel. Please watch here:



Affordable but Awesome Summer Destination near Manila: Amana Waterpark

by 5:21 PM
Amana, ooh na-na. Half of my heart is in Amana, ooh-na-na.. I bet you sang while reading my intro haha. Seriously, my heart is still in Amana Waterpark because of so many things. In this blog post, I am going to share you few of the many reasons why I enjoyed my visit in this amazing waterpark.




Very near to Metro Manila



Amana Waterpark will surely be your favorite quick summer getaway because it is only 45 minutes away from the metro. The 13 hectare pool resort is beautifully located at Bagong Barrio, Pandi, Bulacan. Now you don't have to file a vacation leave just to experience summer because this amazing waterpark is just one tumbling away. :D


Themed Pools










Amana Waterpark is having some of the best attractions that a pool resort can offer to their guests. I can actually name it as the Universal Studios of the Philippines. They have different themed pools that will surely resurrect the kiddie spirit in you. The themed pools are big enough to accommodate a lot of swimmers. I hate crowded pools and I bet you'll like the ones in Amana.



Inflatable Pool




Now this is their newest attraction. Adrenaline junkies will surely enjoy conquering the slippery and wobbly obstacle and fulfill their ninja adventure dreams because of the Amana's wide inflatable pool. Yes, you don't need to travel to Zambales to experience this kind of adventure because there is one in Bulacan. In Amana Waterpark. :)

13 Wave Pool






Amana Waterpark hosts a 3,500 square meter wave pool that can mimic a tsunami wave (just kidding but yeah, their pool can produce 13 waves). To date, they are the biggest in the Philippines. The thrill of splashing into these artificial pool waves will surely make you wanna ask for more.


Comfortable Rooms











Aside from beautiful cottages, Amana also offers different types of rooms for family, couples, and soul searchers. I personally like the feel-at-home vibes their rooms can offer. Perfect if you just want to relax and have an overnight stay.



Affordable Rates

I literally dropped my jaw when I saw their rates. Be the judge. Look at the rates below:



You must be kidding me!! No, I'm not kidding. They really offer a very affordable rate for a beautiful big resort.



Very Clean Environment










Me and my blogger friends walked around the resort and to be honest, we all agreed that every corner of the resort is clean and organized. I hate going to a resort with a lot of garbage and wastes around the vicinity. Amana Waterpark did not disappoint me because of their very pleasant environment. Thumbs up!


Security


It is very important that you and your love ones are secured and protected within the vicinity. In Amana Waterpark, there are life guards and security roaming around 24-7 so you can enjoy a worry-free vacation.


Foods










These super sarap foods are from their in-house restaurant. :) 

You may forget your favorite swimming attire but I bet, you can never forget to bring your favorite foods! Yes, foods are allowed inside Amana Waterpark with no extra cost. You can bring them inside for free. There are also food stalls and restaurants available for those who don't have time to cook. Amazing isn't it?

Other Amenities








Aside from their themed pools, you can also enjoy other activities like zip line, experience the 4D virtual reality ride, have picture taking and enjoy their mini zoo.




So there! Those are just some of the reasons why half of my heart is still in Amana. :D I highly recommend this wonderful resort to anyone looking for a perfect yet affordable summer vacation. I am giving you my word for  this amazing resort. It is truly a treasure that Bulacan can boast. :)
