This is why I was so thrilled when BeautyMNL handpicked me to try shopping on their website. Of course, I agreed! This isn't my first time to shop through their website. Last December, my trusty Nichido Red Lipstick broke and knowing that the only makeup that's consistent in my stash is a lipstick, I knew I had to get another
I heard so much raves about Maybelline Lippies plus they had a sale back in December so I took advantage and got myself Maybelline's Color Sensational Creamy Matte in Touch of Spice, Creamy Matte Brown Nude Lipstick in Clay Crush, and Skin Genie's Lip and Cheek Stain Alive in Christmas Red.
Every time I wash my face using this cleanser, I feel like I'm refreshed and completely clean. It's perfect for everyday cleansing so you can definitely use it after a day full of adventures.
I know I can always use those free cleansers that hotels provide or I can always buy from a nearby store, but naahh ahh, I don't, lol. I really have to bring my own when I travel.
I think it's obvious how skin care is very important. The bad effect/s of the harsh light of the sun may not take effect right away but it may take its toll on your skin as you age. Whenever I go out and wander the streets, I always consider putting on sun protection especially on my face.
This BB cream is perfect for traveling because aside from sun protection, it also has mineral guard that protects your skin from pollution, dust, and dirt. It also evens out your skin tone without looking like you've just applied a heavy makeup. It looks natural. I got one in medium shade since it's closer to my skin color.
Since it's a small tube, you can definitely just put it inside your beauty kit. No excess baggage at all! ;)
Bringing a facial mist is a life saver! You don't have to pour or splash water to your face while walking, haha! You can simple spray or spritz it onto your face and you'll get that cool and refreshing feeling in the middle of a hot summer day when you're feeling too sticky. The sweet, mild scent is a bonus!
Bam Balm works as a lip moisturizer and lip scrub to me. I always have this around especially when the weather's too cold and my lips start to chap. I can just put it in my pocket and grab it conveniently when needed.
I tell you #PimplesAreForever and I guess even with the best skin care, sometimes there will really be zits and breakouts we can't stop. So sad that it's a normal part of life, lol! But this works for spot corrections only. It's not a magic patch for recurring acne trouble so best to see a dermatologist if that's your case.
And there you have it! Those are 5 of my favorite essentials that you may want to add to your beauty kit too, especially when traveling or going out on adventures.
Shopping via BeautyMNL is just a breeze and easy peasy. I like that they give you an idea of what to expect about the product, the brand, as well as an idea on how to use it, plus there are so many helpful reviews too.
Since I'm shopping online, reading honest reviews from certified buyers is crucial to me because I don't like regretting what I purchase or worse, returning it because it's such a hassle. You can just hop on to their Reviews or Beauty by You section (also available when you're browsing the product itself) to help you decide if the product is good for you.
Another thing that helped me in deciding which to buy and try is the award that's shown along with the photo of the product. This way I'd know that a lot of people love this product too.
BeautyMNL even has its own in-house magazine called Bloom where you can read expert beauty, makeup, and skincare tips for your daily needs. I find this really helpful because when I was deciding which shade of Maybelline lipstick to buy, I read this article from them, 6 Brownish Matte Lipsticks That Are Perfect for Filipinas and that's where I found out that Touch of Spice & Clay Crush are best for me. ;)
You don't have to worry about shipping too because they guarantee next day delivery to Metro Manila addresses and 5 to 7 working days for the rest of the Philippines. But since I live in Cebu, I'm not eligible for next day delivery but I still received my package in a reasonable time period which is 5 working days.
They will also email to confirm your purchases and to update you with the status of the delivery. Plus I really love the "welcome remarks" on their email. ♥
