Dasom Oil Control Cream 2 in 1: The Cream Dream for Oily Skin

For as low as P30.00, who could have known that there is such an affordable product that might be considered as a holy grail for us who have oily and combination skin type? Being a bit late in the game, I accidentally spotted this product while browsing along 7/11 and stumbled upon this beauty product. I was skeptical at first whether or not I should try it, not really knowing that DASOM Beauty Korea is an already established brand in the Philippines. So out of curiosity, I gave it a shot and tried it myself for over a month. And well over a month, the results are not what I expected it to do for my face, considering the incredibly affordable price, I highly believe that this truly deserves to be called the "dream cream." How so? You might ask.

Firstly, the Dasom Oil Control Cream is a 2 in 1 cream that will help in lessening excess oil in the face that causes acne, and will additionally provide a powdery matte finish and texture on the face, which is a sure definite go to cream if you need to look neat and fresh all throughout the day during a hot and humid day. 

Secondly, it comes at an affordable price, being sold and packed in a 4g sachet, the recommended pea-size application will approximately last you for a week or so, depending on the amount and frequency of your usage. But considering the price and effectiveness of the product, you couldn’t complain. 

And thirdly, it is FDA approved, paraben free, and made free from harmful chemicals.

Elite Premium Marine Collagen: A Trusted Collagen that Works!

A name befitting of its claims, Elite Premium Marine Collagen by Cosmo Skin works! Ought and about and while going about my daily errands, I happened to come across this product at Watsons and bought myself one bottle to try. For lately I’ve been receiving comments and feedback to review products that are easily accessible, and conveniently sold in department stores, and drugstores nationwide. Hence, this came to mind. 

I can never emphasize enough the importance of understanding the three main important things to consider, namely your Need, Budget, and in being informed about the Formulation that will be necessary for your concern. And this time, we’ll be examining whether Elite Premium Marine Collagen by Skin Cosmo’ might be the one for your skin’s concern. 


Right out of the bat, this product is a Marine Collagen that focuses on helping improve skin elasticity, supplety, and prevent fine line and wrinkles. If your concern may be of skin elasticity, perhaps this product may be for you. Do bear in mind that this product may not give skin lightening effects.



For the budget, I got mine from Watsons at around P680.00. Which I think is not bad and rightly priced considering the pure form of collagen the product is packed with, the simple and informative packaging, and the trust that the brand has achieved from their years of service. 


This I think is where it shines. Elite Premium Marine Collagen contains only 500mg of Marine Collagen and with no other added ingredient. A bottle of this contains 30 capsules that is recommended to be taken 4x times a day, giving you a total of 2000mg of Marine collagen for a day. Which actually falls into the amount to see significant changes in the skin.

Rest assured with Oxecure: Oxecure’s Acne Clear Potion & Prebiotic Serum Review

Looking for an instant cure for your instantly blooming acne that came out of the blue? I for one despair these kinds of situations, of instant breakouts popping out from nowhere. As an influencer I too try my best to take care of my skin and look my best when facing the camera. Being around it for a long time I often get too self-conscious when my face breaks out. But lo and behold I have found a holy grail! I tried and bought myself Oxecure’s Prebio Serum, and partnered it with Oxerure’s Acne Clear Potion as spot treatment.

Both products claim to treat acne breakouts, lighten acne marks, and prevent further acne breakouts. But how does each product stand out? Going further a little deeper, let’s examine each product, the ingredients, and whether it's worth trying.

For the serum, Oxecure’s Prebio (Probiotic) Serum has several ingredients such as Botanical Extract Complex B, Dragons Blood, encapsulated prebiotics, Aloevera Extract, and 8 Hyaluronic acids that will help your skin in healing acne breakouts, and help fade acne scars. 5 ml of this costs only P129.00, which is not bad at all considering the powerful ingredients that it comes with. You’ll only need a pea size for day and night application. And it works wonders over the long run.

Whereas for their spot treatment, the Oxecure’s Acne Clear Potion may be a little on the pricey side, from P349.00 pesos, the product is packed with potent ingredients that is specifically formulated and designed to target acne breakouts. It has salicylic acid, aloe vera leaf juice, zinc oxide, and camphor. For a spot treatment, Oxecure’s Acne Clear Potion is a promising product that will help in lessening inflamed acne breakouts. Just remember not to use this SPOT TREATMENT all over your face at night. HAHA. :)

Updated 2021 list: BEST LOCAL Sunscreen Brands

I can never emphasize the importance of applying sunscreen when going out and about under the sun. Yes you might think that you’re protected under the shade of your umbrella, or the tinted windows of your car but in fact, those are not enough to protect your face and from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB which in the long run can lead to skin aging, hyperpigmentation, or worse skin cancer. Even when indoors, sunlight can still pass through the openings of a building or structure. However, many of you are weary of using sunscreen perhaps due to the sticky feeling, or perhaps the overly expensive cost of buying a sunblock or sunscreen.

With this, I have come up with an updated list of affordable and local sunscreen brands to help you start including sunscreen or sunblock in your skin care regimen. This list is compatible with dry to oily skin combinations. 

Here are my list for the best local affordable sunscreens:

  • Light weight with coverage

  1. Pretty Secret Snail Magic Tinted Sunscreen SPF 50+++ UVA/UVB protection 10 ml (P159.00)

Xiaomi BeBird R1: An Affordable Entry-level Earwax Remover

This may be perhaps one of the most unusual reviews that I’ve done so far. HAHA. Digressing a bit from skin care and beauty products, I'll be reviewing the infamous tool that will let you see, examine, and even clean the insides of your ear! Shocking right? Personally, I’m not really a big fan of digital ear cleaners, but out of curiosity I decided to grab myself one and see for myself what it would feel like and perhaps think of ways how it could be useful, and also the pros and cons that comes along with using similar devices. 

The retail starting price of Xiaomi’s BeBird R1 is as low as P650.00, by far this is the only affordable entry-level digital ear cleaning device out there. From the box, you’ll be able to get the actual cleaning device, a USB cable, and an extra cleaning tip. Judging by the looks of it, the tool is sturdy, portable, and handy.

The Xiaomi BeBird R1 works through a wireless wifi connection that can be accessed by the BeBird app from the apple or google play store. Powered by a 250mAh battery, it features a 3 megapixels lens that is IP67 waterproof; a CMOS sensor for clear magnification and viewing angles, 6 LED Lights; and a 3 axis smart directional gyroscope.

Ishin C Plus Review: A Redemptive Comeback

As many of you all know, I have made quite a commotion after reviewing Ishin Glutathione or Collagen Advance White Japan Formula supplement. Many of you Kamukha have been contacting me and commenting about my honest review of the product, and it was quite the controversy. But I’m surprised that they’re making a comeback and made improvements as a brand overall, and have now made a comeback with their FDA approved vitamin C supplement called Ishin C Plus

I came across Ishin C Plus and got curious about testing it out when I had contracted COVID-19. Because I was prescribed by my physician to take at least a minimum of 500mg of vitamin C a day. Trying out this product came into my mind and immediately grabbed a hold of one bottle. 

A bottle of Ishin C Plus costs P350.00 and contains 60 capsules. With this, each capsule has a total of 500mg Vitamin C derived from Rose Hip fruit, Sodium Ascorbate, Probiotics, and Beta Glucan. Costing only P6.00 per tablet, the key ingredients that makes this product standout is Ishin's emphasis on deriving their formulations from natural products such as vitamin C from rose hip, and the inclusion of probiotics and beta glucan in their formulation.

This is indeed not your typical vitamin C. For Ishin C plus cares also for your overall health and skin, helping you with digestion, skin regeneration, and in eliminating free radicals by acting as an antioxidant, all the while as it also strengthens your immune system.

Road to clear skin! Goodbye to Rejuvenating sets with Garden Lab PH’s Rosehip and Tamanu Oil

Long are the days of breakouts! Well, not thanks to rejuvenating sets, you all know how much I resent Rejuvenating sets and how ruinous it could be on the skin. Thus, Garden Lab PH took care of that issue and helped me achieve clear skin. For well over a year I’ve ditch the sets, and gradually made my way with using oils to help my skin. Although, I must say as a warning, don’t get too excited, but carefully assess your needs, your budget, the formulation, and most of all, your skin type before even trying oils in a frenzy!

As being known to be as a solid user of oils, one of you suggested this brand called Garden Lab Ph, and told me to give this brand a shot. You also recommended my all time favorite Rose hip oil to be combined with Tamanu oil. I too honestly never heard of this oil before, but when I looked into it, it’s actually a good oil to help with acne. 

And thanks to Garden Lab Ph, the majority of their products are packaged in a very informative way. Descriptions, directions, and the formulation as well as the type of oil they are made of, are clearly written in each bottle, not only that but what comes in handy is also the way in which the main use and function of the oil is put in front of the bottle.

Upon my research, Tamanu Oil has been widely used across the Polynesian region and some parts of Asia. It has properties that are anti inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, and is even known to have properties that will repair UV Skin damage. Just like Turmeric oil, which Garden Lab Ph has combined, seems a good combination to treat wound, scars, rashes, insect bites, and acne.

Whitelight for Your Skin’s Delight: A review of Aim’s Global Whitelight Sublingual L-Glutathione

Perhaps Aim’s Global Whitelight may be the solution to your desire to have that fair glow. With an affordable starting price of P300, your desire for a fairer skin has never been this reachable! If you’re interested in planning to try and grab a hold of this product, perhaps this might be helpful in considering your options. 

To begin with, and with certainty, one can never miss the eye-catching, elegant demure that Whitelight has been packaged into. Packaged in a black box with gold font color, the product comes in a classy and reflective gold-colored cylindrical bottle spray. The box, and as well as the spray bottle, contains all the necessary labels, descriptions, and formulations.

For an affordable price of P300.00, a bottle of Whitelight Sublingual L-Glutathione contains 2,500mg of L-Glutathione and 1,000mg of Vitamin C. The formulation is sufficiently enough considering the very affordable price that it comes with. The product directions prescribes it to be taken/sprayed twice (2x) sublingually (under the tongue) for 2x a day. 

Putting it to the test, I took Whitelight’s Sublingual L-Glutathione for 3 weeks. In my first week of trying it out, I followed the directions and took 2 sprays day and night. To my surprise, it did leave me with a glow, I had quite a noticeable glow to my skin and face. However, I’m not quite sure whether it's due to a supplement that I was taking that week, or combined with the product, makes it more robust. As such, in my second week, I mainly focused on taking Whitelight’s alone and decided to increase my dosage by taking 3 sprays per day. Yet again, it’s quite the same, not much has changed, I didn’t notice much change compared to the first week. And finally in my last week of trying, I now decided to increase it to 4 sprays a day. 

After three weeks of trying, I was only able to finally see a noticeable difference in my skin when I increased my dosage of taking 4 sprays day and night (8 sprays in total).

A Lawbanan Primer: NuWhite S-Acetyl Glutathione vs. Eslite S-Acetyl Glutathione

Back at it again with the Lawbanan of two of the most well requested S-Acetyl oral glutathione pills! Many of you have been requesting to make a review about Nuwhite S Acetyl Glutathione and Eslight S - Acetyl Glutathione. And since both products remain to be somewhat of a hot topic, what better way to review them by comparing them side by side, and to properly demonstrate the three simple steps that I usually do in trying products namely N (need), B (Budget), and F (Form). I haven’t personally tried each yet, but this review will serve as primer for both products, stay tuned and I’ll keep you updated for the second round of this Lawbanan of NuWhite vs. Eslite! 

Eslight S - Acetyl Glutathione (Need, Budget, and Form)

With the starting price of P1,680, a bottle of Eslite S - Acetyl Glutathione comes with 30 capsules that will give you 250mg of product per capsule which is advised to be taken 1 capsule per day. One of the biggest standouts of this product is the claim that it promises to deliver, in as  little as three weeks they claim that you’ll be able to notice the difference, evenmore, each capsule is packed with 200mg of S-acetyl glutathione combined with 10 mg of Superoxide dismutase (SOD) from Cantaloupe Melon Extract, eslight claims to give you health benefits such as, younger and fairer looking skin; strong immunity; liver protection; increase in energy production; for SOD and S-acetyl glutathione combined together will act as a powerful antioxidant that will help you with whitening and maintaining healthy collagen levels.

Nuwhite (Need, Budget, and Form) 

Whereas with Nuwhite, it is priced a little higher than Eslite with the starting price of P1,880 (only P200 pesos price difference), it comes packed with 500 mg per capsule of its active ingredients namely S-acetyl glutathione (200mg), marine collagen (100mg). Vitamin E (50mg), and Ascorbic Acid (150mg). Recommended to be taken 1 capsule per day, you’ll not only get s-acetyl glutathione, but plus the marine collage, vitamin E, and C. 

Final thoughts and Conclusion

To be honest with you, this is a tight and close fight. Both products practically do the same effect to your skin and to your overall wellness, but the only differences between these two is the pricing, and formulation that will suit your very personalized need and goal. If you’re looking for a product that’s potent, simple, and effective, eslight may be a good bet. But if you’re more concerned about ensuring the overall wellness of your health and wants additional vitamins and collagen, then perhaps Nuwhite is the one for you.

But if you’d ask me, I personally prefer Nuwhite. With just a couple of additional pesos, you’ll also have the additional marine collagen and vitamins E and C. Yet of course, products may react differently to each of us, and at the end of the day, it is still your very own assessment of your budget, need, and formulation that will help you in choosing the best one for you. 

Here are legitimate links on where to get both products:

The Truth about Kamuka Japanese L-Glutathione Complex

Before I even begin with my review, I’d just want to address and clarify the assumption that you have about this product, since a lot of you my Kamukha have been contacting me and asking me about this particular product regarding if I’m affiliated with it somehow or whether if I’m the owner or co-owner of the brand  hahaha. But to be honest with you… I am not. I am not in any way affiliated or connected with the Kamuka brand and their product namely the Kamuka Japanese L-Glutathione Complex. Although I only came to know about this due to the multiple questions that were hurled right at me without ceasing hahahaha. Thus with passion and curiosity, let’s begin with our review.

Now, what can we say about Kamuka L-Glutathione? This product is from a local brand called NDGP Cosmetics, and the most notable aspect of the product is that it is FDA approved! Before trying out any product that concerns your health, being FDA approved is one of the most important things that you should consider, and this product has done and passed all the necessary requirements that ensures your safety as a consumer, yet it is still wise to consult a physician if you happen to experience any signs and symptoms of discomfort. 

This product showcases 5 powerful ingredients namely, 1) Japanese L-Glutathione (300 mg); 2) Collagen (100mg); 3) Vitamin C (100 mg); 4) Rosehip (25 mg); 5) Camu camu (25 mg); all of which promise to brighten your skin, help with skin aging, and provide you with antioxidants that will aid in preventing skin damage. Additionally, two of the highlights of this product are the Rosehip and Camu camu that is said to benefit the heart, the liver, and mood too! 

Moving on with our Needs, Budget, and Formulation analysis, I personally think that Kamuka L-Glutathione will help you maintain your already fair skin along with the other health benefits that it promises to give. However, if your main concern and need is for skin whitening, perhaps there are other products out there in the market containing higher dosage of Glutathione to help you achieve that kind of need. The starting price starts around P390.00 pesos and breaking it down further costs P39.00 pesos per pill. The pricing is decent considering that they offer you a little less than 30 capsules to try first if it works for you.

Hunch no more with Anlan Smart Posture Corrector

Tired of hunching but yet keep on forgetting to maintain your posture? Worry no more with a little less than a thousand pesos you can now finally avail a smart posture corrector that surely will not make you forget, and remind you to straighten up that hunchback of yours! Haha. :)

Personally, I myself also struggle with keeping my posture straight at all times. Being an educator, part-time vlogger, and blogger, there is a lot of instances that require me to be in front of the computer for long hours, either to edit a vlog or blog, or perhaps do paperwork, lessons, conduct online classes, and attend to the concerns of my students, I often forget about my posture and concentrate in doing my job and what’s required of my at that particular moment. And worse, even if I’m not working I too tend to neglect my posture. Hence, when I got the chance and learned about this product when I reviewed Anlan V-face lifting machine, I immediately did not slip the opportunity away and tried it for myself.

The box comes with the product itself, a user manual, and a usb cable for charging. The box is very minimalistic with detailed information at the back. Regarding the product itself, it sure doesn’t look cheap I’ll tell you that! With less than a thousand pesos (P559.00)  I’ll definitely say that you will not regret your purchase. It actually looks sturdy and built with high quality materials from the sensor to the straps, a sure bang for the buck. 


A Skin Care for Filipino Youths: An Honest Review on Careline's Skin Hero Set

 Back at it again with another honest review! 

This time it might surprise you to hear that Careline, which is known to be one of the most well known cosmetic companies in the country,  has finally started to invest in skin care products releasing several products and sets that are well suited for every young Filipina and Filipino in mind. Perhaps let’s put their newly launched Skin Care hero set to the test whether, if truly it is as they claim to be, “better than basic.”

The Skin Hero Set comes in four products beginning with the Captain Cleanser, followed by the Power toner, Super Serum, and then finally the Wonder Moisturizer that are powered by active ingredients such as their AHA, BHA, and PHA cleanser and toner that is followed through by their Niacinamide serum and moisturizer, skin hero set is designed to fight acne, maintain elasticity of the skin as well as brighten, and smoothen uneven skin tone. But, what’s wonderful about this is that it comes at an affordable starting price of P395.00, and can be purchased in department stores such as Watsons and also online through Lazada and Shopee.

It is indeed a very promising set that contains products that are aimed and targeted on young Filipinas and Filipinos that are new to skin care. However it could have been better if they also added a sunscreen in the set in order to fully not just maintain and repair the skin, but also add protection for the skin.

Venus Fine Pure White Or just Venus, fine? An Honest Review on Fine Pure White

It’s been a while, hi there! I’m back on it again with another honest review, and this time I’ll be reviewing this product that you’ve been suggesting/requesting - Venus Fine Pure White. It is within my knowledge and awareness that numerous vloggers or influencers have been raving about this product and so the majority of you have! Haha, but in all honesty, this product really seems to be promising! The price for this supplement astonishingly starts at only P295.00, and it’s also FDA approved. Wow! However, we should hold our horses and always first consider and ask ourselves three main things, namely what our needs are, the budget that we have, and the formulation that is necessary in order for us to meet our goal, and also don’t forget, the very most important of all is to first consult your physician before taking any supplements.

In this case, let us now move on with our review of Venus Fine Pure White. Initially, I too am a bit confused as to what it actually claims to give. Nevertheless, it all boils down again to your own goal and what you want to achieve.

Now, looking at the packaging, the front facade already presents four of the main ingredients that it champions namely L-Glutathione in free-form (200gm); Collagen (Bavine 200mg); N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC, 50 mg) and; Ascorbic Acid (50mg). And the most remarkable aspect of the packaging is the inclusion of all the information and details of the product and what each capsule might contain. All the information that can be found at the back are the nutritional facts, formulation or ingredients list and seal from the FDA. But you might ask, what does this product claim to do? Is it mainly for whitening or for or for skin repair and elasticity?

Well, in my honest opinion and how I observed it, I believe it focuses mainly on both, it somehow lies in the middle or soft spot between helping you maintain a fair skin and also help aid in skin regeneration and repair. It kind of acts as a supplement or rather a multivitamin if you’d ask me, it may not do much if you’re looking for drastic changes, but it might help you maintain your already glowing skin, and not to mention that this is very affordable with the starting price of P295.00, what could you ask for more? A packet contains 30 capsules that might last you 15 days if you opt in taking 2 capsules a day. Which seems decent.


Putting it into light: A Revelation of Jane’s Secret Glutathione Pills

Like most of you, you might be wondering what wonders Jane Secret might hold in helping you achieve that glow that you might be dreaming of. To find out, I am here to help you unravel Jane’s Secret and see for myself whether or not this product contains the oh-lala ingredient for a fairer looking skin. Nevertheless, one should still be sure of one’s goal and ask oneself the three crucial words that are necessary for your glow up journey, namely Need, Budget, and Formulation. 

From the PR package, Jane’s Secret sent me two bottles of their glutathione pills containing 30 capsules in one bottle. Packaging from both products are simplistically attractive. However the only downside that I’ve noticed from the packaging of their glutathione pills, is the lack of indication for the exact dosage for the formulation of each ingredient, the only thing that was indicated was the first and primary ingredient which is the 250 mg content of Glutathione. On the bright side, they also did state the other 5 remaining ingredients of Jane’s secret, namely Marine Collagen, Salmon Extract, Grape Seed Extract, CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C which also makes up the remaining 250 mg of the overall formulation of Jane’s secret’s Glutathione. 

All these along with Glutathione are said to not just lighten your skin tone, but serve as an antioxidant and also to help with skin regeneration. Thus, without hesitation, I immediately put it to the test and tried it out myself. Being prescribed to take it 1-4 times a day, I did so religiously and as far as I can say, it did well on my skin and did not break me out. Although, the only concern that I personally experienced was it made my heart rate increase a little more than its average resting level after each time I took a pill, I palpitated a bit, but luckily my official ECG results are normal.
