Neutrogena Deep Clean Ultra Foam Cleanser in Revitalizing Pink Grapefruit

Skin type:

Product price: 307.50
Place of bought: SM Centerpoint/Watson

Hi Everyone! This review is about the Revitalizing Pink Grapefruit of Neutrogena Deep Clean Ultra Foam Cleanser.

The Neutrogena deep clean ultra foam cleanser comes in two (2) variants: Revitalizing Pink Grapefruits and Brightening Mulberry. I am really torn between the two and having a difficulty to decide what to buy. At first, I was about to pick the Brightening Mulberry because of its brightening effect, as the product says; but I choose to try out the revitalizing pink grapefruits, simply because at that moment I felt so stressed and thinking that I need a cell renewal effect. I’ve been using this product for a month now.

Revitalizing pink grapefruits says...

Developed with dermatologists, the innovative new formula contains leading Neutrogena Deep Clean Technology that effectively removes 99% of dullness-causing dirt, oil, impurities and dead skin cells from the skin with a velvety fine foam, as well as an Anti-Oxidant Pink Grapefruit Extracts that helps stimulate healthy cell renewal.

  • non-comodegenic
  • oil-free
  • dermatology tested
  • alcohol free
What I Like:
  • No sting harsh feeling while using;
  • My skin feels so clean and fresh after using;
  • I love the citrus scent;
  • It doesn't dry up my skin;
  • The bottle comes-up with a pump that makes it easy to dispense;
  • Locally available;
  • Can easily remove light make-up;
  • The most important is my skin doesn't break out!
What I don't like:
  • Nothing!
Final Verdict:

I so love this product 100%! --As what I always said, I have a very sensitive and acne prone skin; that is why, it is very crucial for me to find a product that can suit my skin sensitivity. This revitalizing pink grapefruits from Neutrogena did not fail me. Another hooray for Neutrogena!♥♥♥
Check out their fan page ---> Nuetrogena Philippines

Of course, but I would like to try the other one, which is the Brightening Mulberry.

Recommend it?
100 percent YES!

See you all on my next review! Take care and Godbless! ♥

Nichido- Mineral Kohl Pencil in ONYX (review)

Skin Type: Oily/Combination
Place of bought: SM Centerpoint/Watson
Price: 138php

Hi Everyone! My first ever review; the Nichido eyeliner pencil in Onyx. I remembered back in high school, whenever I came to visit my aunt's house I always ask her to put an eyeliner on my waterline and when it's done, I felt so dalaga na (arte lang)  ! hehe. Anyway, going back to the Nichido black eyeliner in Onyx; I first saw it on YouTube with Ms. Say Channel,. Being so curious on how pigmented it is, I decided to buy one  

Here's a video of Ms. Say using this the eyeliner to line her upper eyelash.
Isn't she's pretty and uhgmeizing (amazing) ? Diba? I ♥ watching her videos.   

Here's a picture of a Nichido- Mineral Khol pencil in Onyx:
It stated on the right picture that this pencil is a water resistant.

 You can see in the first picture how pigmented it is.
At the center of the picture, you notice that I sprayed a little amount of water to test if it's really what this eyeliner claimed to be. Unfortunately, on the last picture as you will see, it smudges a bit.

Here's a sample picture of my eyes. Sorry for the eye-bags guys, I was still up till 2:30am last night and wake up at around 7am, I am not really feeling well. Truly, the eyes are the mirror of your soul. They are too honest in aught to disguise whenever how you feel or what you really feel.
I applied it on my upper and lower eyelash

  • Very affordable and locally available;
  • Very pigmented and very rich in color;
  • Can easily apply it on your eyelid to make a pin-up look and even on your lower lash line to make your eyes look bigger;
  • Has a pretty good lasting power.
  • Be careful not to touch your eyes for it has a tendency to smudge;
  • It is not that water resistant as what the product claimed;
  • When washing your face, it has a tendency to leave your eyes like you have a (black eye) so be sure to remove it perfectly.

Final Verdict:

I love how pigmented the product is even with just one glide. I don't really mind if it can easily rub off for i can handle it. 

Repurchase and Recommend it?
Definitely Yes!

See you all on my next review! Take care and Godbless! ♥

Hi Everyone! Good day! As you would all know, this is my first ever blog waaaaaaah finally! Well, first, for an introduction of myself; my name is Joanna Marian, my friends and relatives used to call me Joanna or Jonna for short. But here in my blog I prefer to be called Marian  for a change (wink)  . I will be turning 27 in over a week from now; yeah I’m not getting younger anymore. I have a fair complexion, 5’3 in height, my skin type is oily-combination and very sensitive.

In terms of make-ups, honestly, I’m a newbie. That is why; I decided to look for a review of a different product or make-ups before I put anything on my face. In doing this almost every day, I just found myself getting obsessed in different make-ups and wanting to do a review also on what am I using. With this, I can help my co-beauty junkee to find products that are worth a penny.

Also, I want to give credit to our local blogger who never stop searching for a good product and always giving us their honest opinion/reviews. Indeed, they are really aahhhmaaazing!

Anyway, it’s already 1:30am and its time for me to rest. See you on my first product review! It is about Nichido-Mineral Kohl pencil in ONYX. Have a good night sleep everyone! Godbless!

Marian ♥
