tony moly egg pore shiny skin soap

Good morning, hearties!
Today, I'll be attempting to review a skincare product.
Maggie of A Beautiful Rhapsody has asked if I could do a review of the Tony Moly Egg Pore Shiny Skin soap (whew, such a long product name!) from this post. 

So now, I am here, challenging myself to do a good product review haha.
By the way, there will be a series of face pictures ahead. Please don't be scared

Egg Pore Shiny Skin Soap
  50g per egg
  448 Php at Tony Moly SM Manila Branch

"Effective pore purifying products that clears out blackheads and impurities with egg."

Instructions: Use the white egg first. Latter with warm water and massage on face. Then leave on for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with water. Do the same procedure for the brown egg except leave it on for 5 minutes less than the time it took on the white one. Use it 2 to 3 times a week.
There is a strong smell from the eggs that might be disturbing for others. It smells good for me, kinda reminds me of a hair salon. Haha.
This is my face before washing. Nasty breakouts on the T-zone, I know
 A lot of oiliness here and there, big eyebags. Hahaha, talk about haggard.

Anywaaaays, I washed my face with the white egg and waited for 15 minutes because I'm really impatient with these things. The white egg was really, really itchy on certain spots.

Now, I'm finished with the white egg and waited 10 minutes for the brown egg. Unlike the white egg, I didn't feel much itchiness on my face. Though there are certainly red spots.

 Tadaaah! Now my face is squeaky clean and slightly filled with red spots. My face feels really refreshed and it looks so pale! XD. 
This has been my second time to use this product. Now, I can tell that I think it has helped me with the whiteheads on my nose area before. It doesn't do much on oil control. It only took about 2 1/2 hours for my face to feel sticky again. As for the promise on removing blackheads, I really can't tell because I don't have much and I've used a nose pore strip recently (sorry). Also, I haven't been using it religiously because it is sooo time-consuming. 
I hope I have helped you (in some tiny way) with this review. Please do correct me if I'm wrong with something :) And if you have any questions, I'll answer it with all that I can haha.

Thanks for reading!

nailed with love || bobbie black shadow

Good evening, dearies!
I am back with yet another nail post :)

 Can somebody give me tips on taking care of cuticles? 
I was cutting them before but I think it's not really advisable to do so.
Right now, I'm just pushing them back. 
But after a day or two, they are so visible again

Can you see the glitters in the bottle? 
So pretty. Like stars in the night sky

Bobbie Black Shadow

This is my first Bobbie nail polish and it has been my favorite ever since!
I think it looks so good on short nails which made me love it more haha.

remington fish

Hello lovelies!!!
Oh dear, it's been a long time since I've typed on my address bar.
I'm sorry I've been away for awhile. Exams all around. And birthdays, too!

This is just a quick visit here in my blog. 
I still have a lot to do. Gaaah. Seems like the to do list won't end  

But I'll be back real soon. Maybe one or two posts these days.
And by the way...

Meet Remington, my dear blue fighting fish. 
He is actually in a darker blue color but the flash kinda took some of the color away XD (Am I making sense..)

I bought him when a friend asked me to accompany her buy a hamster at Cartimar.

At first we didn't know its gender so we chose Remington as its name, in accordance to the movie with the gay "Remington".

But two days ago, I saw a LOT of bubbles on top of the water so I had to Google why there were such. And so I found out that once the males are ready to mate, they make the "bubble nest" for the eggs. Unfortunately, my Remington doesn't have a partner so the there's no use for the bubbles. Well at least now I know that he's a male :)
