shiseido love + new online orders

I got these babies from my February BDJ box, and can I just say that they work?


Here I am wearing the Shiseido Brightening Mask and trying very hard to smile.

Shiseido mask!

Loving my skin now.

I have a problem with dryness. My legs look horrible (I have a feeling I have atopic dermatitis, which I’m treating with generic hydrocortisone), and my lips need constant application of lip balm.

I ordered these from Multiply:


The Vain Jane got me interested in Carmex (PhP 150), while Soap & Glory’s The Righteous Butter (PhP 450, but I got a 20 percent discount from the seller) was available in the same online store so I got it.

What it is:
An award-winning body moisturizing butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera.

What it does:
This body butter was formulated for very dry skin with a new dynamic moisture trap matrix to help hold hydration in longer. Its alluring scent of Soap & Glory’s signature Pink Fragrance combines fresh bergamot and mandarin, rose, jasmine, peach, strawberry, oakmoss, amber, woody notes and amber and warm vanilla notes on the bottom.

The scent perks me up! It is also lighter than The Body Shop’s body butter products, and heavier than Human Nature’s Mango Butter. I think this one’s right for me.

  1. Yay! Cherry carmex smells super nice. I still prefer the original one, though! Bought four last night from Landmark haha. Addict lang ako.

    Re atopic dermatitis aka eczema: I find Mustela, Steam Cream, and Kiehl’s useful. Cetaphil lotion is okay, too, but it’s kind of greasy. You might want to change your soap to something less drying.

    1. I don’t use soap, haven’t for years, I use body wash. I also stopped scrubbing my lower legs; instead I just rub on the body wash. I also have my legs waxed regularly, do you think waxing is making it worse? :/ Hay akala ko kasi noong una cold hives lang.

      Thanks for the recos!

  2. I still use a scrub (yun parang brush thing with handle) but it helps to use oil or super thick lotions after para di dry. Look for products with minimal fragrance. PS I shave, so it makes things worse for my legs hahaha.

  3. Hi Eliza! I clicked on this post because I thought online orders meant those not in PI can now order Apocalypses online :)

    My daughter has eczema and I tried manuka honey. I knew it would have worked better if she were older and could stand the grease! I must admit I am totally clueless about beauty products – I’ve been using only water to wash my face these last eight years and then moisturise with Nivea, which I am sometimes even lazy to do if it’s not winter :-D

    Hope you’re having a good week!

    1. Oh no! I’m sorry to disappoint you with my weird face. :/ Haha. It’ll be available before the end of March, thanks for the interest!

      Sorry to hear about your daughter; eczema is annoying! I wish it would just go away.

      To be honest, I just got interested with beauty products fairly recently. Lucky you to have great skin; I would have had cold hives if I lived where you are living right now. I belong to a tropical country hehe.
