Skincare isn’t easy. I’d know.

Last year, after months of what I could only explain as adult acne, I went on an enlightening journey towards clearer skin. In other words, I took time to learn about skincare. Dear reader, I, too, like you, did not know squat about how to take care of my face. But, after countless YouTube videos, articles, and consultations with friends, I finally developed a skincare routine that works for me.


To break it down, there are three main steps: Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. In this video, I’ve modified each step to things that suit my needs and products that work with my skin type. I’ve mentioned just some of the products that have worked for me in the video, but always remember that what works for me might not work for you.

I start off with cleansing using a two-step technique that uses an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser. This is followed by an alcohol-free facial toner and topped off by some products that help moisturize my face. Below is a list of the products that I used:

  • Banilla Co. Zero Clean It Cleanser
  • Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash
  • V&M Naturals Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner
  • Klair’s Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum
  • Foreo Matte Maniac Charcoal Mask and the Foreo UFO
  • BaeBody Eye Gel
  • Himalaya Herbals Intensive Moisturizing Cream
  • Vaseline

Wishing you well on your own skincare adventure!

Honor 20 Pro Moschino edition unveiled

There are Moschino cases, too!

Published

on

With Honor’s announcement of their Honor 20 series came a fashion collaboration that definitely excites me. The Honor 20 Pro Moschino edition was just announced and I love how extra it is.

The phone itself has the worlds “This is not a Moschino phone” stamped on the back in true Moschino fashion. Of course, there’s a matching wallpaper that says, what else: “This is not a Moschino wallpaper.”


There are also cases that follow that design lead…

My favorite, a case that features similar bold text for that Moschino flair and straps that you can even hook to your bag.

Though all designs are fresh, the partnership isn’t surprising. Moschino’s Jeremy Scott is known for collaboration; not to mention, Honor also teamed up with the Italian fashion brand for the Honor View 20’s design.

No details on pricing and availability for this particular version of the Honor 20 Pro is out yet but one thing’s for sure: I’m loving the fashion-tech partnership and I’m definitely hoping for more!

Still very cute!

The cutest 90s pet is back and it’s in full color!

The Tamagotchi Go is a refreshed version of our favorite digital pet. Available in glitter cases and now fitted with colored screens, the 2019 Tamagotchi hopes to capture this new generation the same way they did ours: Through adorable virtual critters!


You still take care of an incessantly needy pet but this device now allows you to connect with other users via Bluetooth so that your Tamagotchi can make friends, marry, and even have more Tama babies. And, good news, there will even be a new Tamagotchi Hotel feature which will babysit your pet on days you can’t just deal — that means less dead pets! (90s kids would know. 😅)

Additionally, there’s an app, to be released later on, that will allow users to connect to other Tamagotchi worldwide.

Despite the advancements, the Tamagotchi Go will still be a straightforward device which runs on AAA batteries and needs no connection to your smartphone or the internet to run. The new Bandai toys will be on sale starting July 28 and it will retail for US$ 60 a piece.
