Godiva Natural Skin Care

I’ve heard of Godiva Natural Skin Care before. I’ve seen it on shelves, but I honestly never gave much attention to it. I thought it’s practically the same as other whitening products in the market. Recently, I was introduced to the brand and I was pretty much sold from what I learned! How? Why? Read on… I won’t waste your time. I’ll go straight to the point and answer the common questions of everyone. What makes Godiva Natural Skin Care unique from other whitening products? It has licorice root extract and its active ingredient called glabridin, which is widely recognized all over the world as the most potent, naturally-derived whitening ingredient. Licorice or Glycyrrhiza glabra is a plant widely used commercially as a sweetening agent. However, its root has been used for many years from as far back as 3000 B.C. in Ancient China and Egypt as an herb with many medicinal properties. How does licorice and glabridin work? Glabridin inhibits the production of melanin and the same time nourishes and protects the skin due to its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. If this unique ingredient actually works, why is it uncommon among other whitening products? Licorice is not widely used in most whitening products because of its high premium price. Licorice (plant) is not endemic to the Philippines and glabridin as a raw material component to Godiva Natural Skincare...

Laura Mercier Tone Perfecting Creme Review

It’s not enough that you’ve got clear skin. You may have discovered your HG skincare to stop pimples, but what about the marks left from your breakout stage? We all want even skin tone and that’s what Laura Mercier Tone Perfecting Creme targets. Here’s my review. Product Information This luxurious crème leaves skin brighter, luminous and visible even toned. Tone Perfecting Crème helps diminish the look of discolorations, sun damage and age spots and protects against environmental stresses with Quercetin. I love it because… it hydrates my skin. I use it as my night moisturizer and I wake up to baby soft skin. it has rich consistency, perfect for normal to dry skin. it didn’t cause me breakouts or any irritations. it doesn’t feel heavy on skin. for a rich moisturzier, it absorbs pretty quick. it has very mild scent. I wish… I can use it during the day. I have oily skin, therefore I only use rich moisturziers, such as Laura Mercier Tone Perfecting Creme, only at night. Those with normal to dry skin can use it both day and night. it has different packaging, like tube or pump dispenser, for sanitation purposes. it’s less expensive. It’s priced at PHP 3,650 (USD 95), but it’s expected from a luxury brand. Tips After cleansing and toning, apply Laura Mercier Tone Perfecting Cream thinly all over the face. You can also...
