Quick 2-in-1 Review: Ellana Make up Remover & EB make up brushes

Ellana Make Up remover

Its great! It made my brushes really soft but I'm not really fond of the smell and when you first try it out its kinda oily maybe because of the coconut oil... but it works well I mean for the price of it you do get your money's worth. It comes in a spray tube which makes it easier to clean your brushes. You just spray it and then wipe it off until all the colors are transferred into the cloth/tissue/cotton.

EB Make up brushes

Errr I hated this... When you first buy these brushes it seems so soft and strong.. But when you use it, its really harsh for the skin and the "hairs" Fall off and it sometimes sticks to your face... Most of all, when you use it for a month or two, the dark color of the "hairs" of the brush sticks on your face. and it looks like a bronzer gone bad or an eyeliner turned bronzer.Its really a big downer. Its really good to invest on good make up brushes like Mac, Bobbi Brown and others that are in excellent quality.

All these crazy people around me..(Make my life difficult)

YES. The title says it all.

Lately my life hasn't been a walk in the park.

Problems with every part of my life especially in academics.

I feel like I'm failing 1 or 2 or 3 subjects and I'm definitely not happy with it cause I know I don't deserve to have a grade like that.

My summer is messed up. I don't know if they will let me have my OJT or they'll force me to take a summer class so I can take the research class next term which is required for my thesis. Its really crazy... its enrollment time and they still haven't confirmed anything yet so I really don't know what to do.

I really hate working with incompetent people. Stupid freeloaders who just sit back and do whatever , not caring whether we need their help or not. I've been sleeping late and sometimes i don't sleep at all just to finish a group work. And its frustrating cause when you try to tell them to do something, they give it to you but they never get it right so in the end you have to do it all by yourself.

So my mantra is "3 more terms" cause after this I'd make sure it won't happen to me again... and I'm gonna get my luck and happiness back no matter what it takes.

Quick Review: Maybelline's Eye & Lip Make up Remover

This is just another product I purchased earlier and impulsively just cause I was so excited that my credit card is working again :))

I've always loved products from maybelline and lately I have been looking for a decent make-up remover since I find that using facial cleansers, foams and scrubs doesn't necessarily take off all the make-up and dirt acquired during the day. So I bought a small bottle just to try it out, the packaging looked nice nothing too complicated just a clear white plastic bottle with a white label. You can see from the outside its color, blue on top and white liquid below it so definitely, you have to shake this before you use it. And I didn't really use this for the eyes and lips alone.. I actually used it to clean my whole face and it worked really well :))

so yeah just a quick review on it cause its really helpful and I wanted to make a note on it so I wouldn't forget to buy again if it runs out :P

Review: Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Pack

WOOOOOOTT sooo after going to the gym I went to Watson's to shop for some stuff for my face... Bought the usual olay night & day cream and then out of the corner of my eye I saw a new section inside the store... It was the Himalaya herbals line. Frankly when I first saw it, to me it looked cheap and I was hesitant to try out the product. The packaging was just a white tube with a green cap. It was pretty big and it only costs around 200php for 150 ml of Neem Face Pack.But well since I was soo happy that my credit card was working again, I did but it.. and when I got home I was so excited to try it and soo I did when I first had it in my hand it didn't really feel right cause it looked like mud and it had a really rough texture. The smell was well "herbal-ly" as expected it wasn't really that bad for me atleast.. The first 2 minutes was irritatingly painful. It stung a lot and then when it was starting to dry the pain was replaced with tingly feeling and my skin felt really tight. After 10 mins I looked in the mirror and I saw that the pack dried completely and you can see the dirt in the face that was taken out by the mud. And then I washed my face with water and scrubbed off the mud using a wet cotton/tissue and after my skin felt firm and soft... I loved it and I can't wait to use it again. will definitely try the rest of their product line :) As for its claim on treating oily and pimple prone skin, specifically "clears skin and prevents outbreak and recurrence of pimples" I couldn't tell yet... I do hope it works though. Oh and did i already say that it contains NEEM and Turmeric? which is really good for the skin.

"Neem is a powerful antibacterial herb and it can indeed be very helpful with acne."

Turmeric is an antiseptic and anti oxidant.

From: http://www.indiaparenting.com/babys-diet/20_152/benefits-of-turmeric.html

"Here are just a few of the various benefits of turmeric:

Reduces Pigmentation

Plagued with pigmentation? Turmeric can help even out your skin tone and colour. Simply apply a little turmeric mixed with cucumber juice or lemon to the affected area. Leave on for fifteen minutes or more, and wash off. Do this everyday, and gradually you will notice your skin colour returning to normal.


Strengthens Bones

Drink a quarter glass turmeric juice every night, with milk. The best way to have this is to take a 1/2 inch piece of turmeric and boil it with half a glass of milk. Once the milk has turned yellow, remove from fire, let it cool slightly, and sip this. This will cure numerous ailments. Women especially should drink this every night, as it strengthens bones and reduces the risk of developing osteoporosis.


Softens the Body

Turmeric is a wonderful body scrub, which is why Indian brides apply a turmeric and gram flour (besan) mix to their entire body, the morning of the wedding. It leaves your skin soft, smooth and glowing. Of course, a single application will not really make that much of a difference. Do this regularly, and watch your skin change for the better - much better.


Makes the Skin Supple

If you are planning a pregnancy, apply a mixture of turmeric and malai or turmeric and curd to your stomach and waist before going for a bath. Leave it on for fifteen minutes, and wash off. If desired, you could even apply this mixture after bathing. After you have washed off the soap, apply the malai and haldi mixture, leave it on for five minutes, and wash off only with water. Gently, wipe your stomach with the towel. The sooner you start this routine, the more supple and elastic your skin will become, and after giving birth, you will not be left with unsightly stretch marks.


Inhibits Cell Damage

Turmeric is an excellent anti-oxidant, which essentially means that it stabilizes unstable oxygen molecules. These are known as free radicals, and are what cause damage to cells, leading to ageing and various other diseases such as cancer. "


YES I'M ADDICTED TO BEAUTY REGIMENS :))

SPONGEBOB IS NOT EVIL!

Right now I'm reading random blogs online and I came across a certain blog which will of course remain nameless which claimed that spongebob has tons of subliminal messages. like squidward's name reversed and played sounds like Satan, The entrance song says "children of satan" yadda yadda...and this is the reason why the show is popular for both children and adults (from a christian blog)

"In one episode, SpongeBob pulls down his squarepants and reveals his square buttocks.
An underage SpongeBob is shown driving a car while receiving morally questionable guidance from a dumb Starfish named Patrick.
SpongeBob frequently lies and cheats to get out of trouble.
Many of the sea creatures shown in these episodes are not wearing pants of any kind (square, or otherwise).
The show promotes a belief in Neptune, god of the sea – a clear message to children that they should be polytheists.
SpongeBob talks in a high, falsetto voice (do I need to say more about the homosexual threat to America?).
All of these sea creatures are depicted as single and available for reproduction.
None of these shows depicts an underwater church or house of worship.
None of these shows make any clear reference to Jesus Christ as the Savior of the World – and this includes the sea and all that is in it." - a dude selling a dvd "revealing" the evils of spongebob squarepants

---Lemme just say that this is just crap. People love the show because IT IS A GREAT SHOW. IT'S FUNNY AND NOT AT ALL A BAD INFLUENCE OR A WAY OF SATAN'S INFILTRATION TO SOCIETY. idiot.

I dunno why you stupid people have to make stuff up just to destroy the reputation of the things or people that you don't like. If you don't like it, leave it alone. No one's forcing you to follow the "trend" stupid people who sees a simple star, or a triangle and immediately you say its ILLUMINATI or the work of the devil or whatever.. That's just crap.crap.crap.crap. The bad publicity you people pin of Jay-z , Lady Gaga and others are just to much that maybe you should look at yourselves and see who's brainwashing and who's really ruining lives.

I AM AN AGNOSTIC... A SATANIC ENTHUSIAST

"Satanists are atheists who use reason as our means for understanding the universe around us, we consider any who believe themselves to be directly in touch with entities beyond nature to be irrational and untrustworthy. " PHG

so... a brief explanation on how i became to be what i am now.

When I was in high school I was very god-fearing... everything that I do was really for my family, myself and god. I joined Youth For Christ which had worship session and just time to praise the Lord before classes start. Everytime I go to church and I listen to the homily, I felt so enlightened and burden-free.. It was like nothing could go wrong and I was so blessed. Until I got into college and started studying about Philosophy when my professor was starting to question about god I was really furious and i immediately thought that he was a crazy person. But then as days wore on and I started reading about it, my beliefs started to crash. Its like I feel that all this time I was tricked. and I had no freedom... and I was only sure of god and christ and mary because that was the only thing that I learned since I was a child. They always tell me that Satan was evil yadda yadda... but then in philosophy it questioned if Satan was really evil as she seemed since God created everything good and with purpose then he must have also created satan which makes satan good and with purpose...So how can that be god's worst enemy? And the questions kept piling up like word vomit. So I did a lot of research on my own.. different books and sites about other religion. And i found it to be very interesting... that I never knew that such other sides existed and where as good as what I believed in and maybe even better. So i decided to weigh in and see which fits my personality and preferences.. it turned out that it was Satanism, or having no religion, or being neutral.. those were the choices that remained. So a year or more after... here I am... an agnostic and a satanic philosophy enthusiast...


Okay today when I came home I immediately went to my mother's room just to say that I am home... sooo she suddenly spoke up and said " I saw your facebook earlier.. Why did you write that you are an agnostic and is inclined to the satanic philosophy?" and I said "Its not that I am inclined to your definition of evil, its cause I do agree with their philosophy more than that of the catholics" and then she said "So you don't believe in god?" sounding so concern that I almost felt sorry that I told her the truth... I said "Its not that I don't believe I just have doubts" and then she replied "edit your profile. You don't want anyone to misinterpret what you believe in because people will not understand your side because they don't know what it truly meant to be agnostic or worse satanic"and I just mumbled cause I really didn't know what to say.. I didn't want to tell her "yeah I will" cause I really think that I should express myself in any way that I could. I do not want to be barred by what society dictates just because satanism does seem like a minority group. Facebook is a way for people to connect and get to know each other. And i think that changing that statement would only make my profile fake... more importantly, it would portray that I WAS A FAKE. I would be lying to myself if i wrote that I was a christian and I love god and yadda yadda like a lot of people do just to gain adoration from others. I don't care if people would see me differently just because I have different beliefs. What is important is i don't hide it... and I don't lie...People are being hypocrites for saying that they love god and they are the good people in this world. These ignorant people are usually the real sinners.. They do a lot of bad things.. and just say sorry afterwards as if that could erase what they did.. Atleast even though I have admitted that I have a different stand, i still choose to do what feels right for me.. If i feel good helping people then thats what I will do.. regardless of how other may perceive me to be..

I seriously don't want to be labeled or to be a part of any religion. If given a chance to change how things are in this world... the first thing I will do is eliminate all of it... I think that it leads to the great divide which separates people and bring them into a never ending dispute. What we should really have is an authentic freedom which gives us the right to do what we think is right and follow what we want to believe in. Not some snotty religion who dictates what's wrong or right for you, because to be honest, your chosen religion basically commands you and instill in you their beliefs.. and you will never have any original beliefs of your own.

Cause if the dominant religion really tries to understand and be open about all this, there is nothing wrong with choosing to not believe or to believe in something else.. It is the right of every human being. Parents should not try to teach their kids at a very young age to go to a church and listen to homilies that they will never understand with that level of intelligence.. They should teach them how to make the right decisions, without imposing their own biases. And when the right time comes and a child becomes mature enough to choose how to live his/her life, then they will choose their own path and they could proudly say that they do own their lives. Because in the end, it all boils down to one's self.
