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.
