Skin Correct PH Emollient Cream

SkinCorrect PH: Hypoallergenic Skin Goodies

When it comes to skincare, it’s always better to err on the safe side and avoid unnecessary ingredients from touching your skin. I suspect that’s one of the reasons why constant hydration–drinking simple water as often as possible–is already a mantra when it comes to healthy and beautiful skin. The simpler, the better. And with the hot, humid weather and the dirt and pollution that we come in contact every day, don’t you think our skin deserves to recover too every night?

SkinCorrect PH offers just that–good stuff for the face (and you know how the skin on our faces tend to be more sensitive than the rest of our body!)
No perfume, just the basics plus nutrients to keep our facial skin clean and in tip top condition against the harsh elements in the Philippines.

Thanks, by the way, to my Happy Days Club family for sending this power duo! #sponsored

M Gentle Cleanse Emollient Cream

I got the M gentle cleanser and M emollient cream to test, and I found that this pair is an affordable option for ladies who are on a budget. Both products together help clean and moisturize. For background, I’ve got generally dry skin that tends to be sensitive to changing weather, hormones and harsh chemicals.

Here are my thoughts on the pair after twenty days of use:

M Gentle Cleanse – 125ml

I love the simple white pump bottle as packaging. It’s opaque to protect the ingredients, plus hygienic since it comes with a pump. I love that I can control the amount of product I use every day because of it!

Plus all the ingredients can easily be found on the label.

Skin Correct PH Gentle Cleanser

The cleanser has a somewhat oily scent, which I assume come from the sunflower oil. The consistency is smooth, and it doesn’t lather as I would expect from oil-stripping cleansers.

In my opinion, just a pea-sized (single pump) amount is enough to clean the entire face. Once rinsed, the cleanser leaves the scent on my skin, even on my hands after washing! It also feels like an oily film covers my skin afterwards.

M Emollient Cream – 125ml

Compared with the gentle cleanser, the emollient cream features a slightly stronger scent and creamier consistency. Also, I found that two pumps are needed to get enough product to cover my face, from forehead to neck area.

There’s no sticky feeling after each application, and my skin feels more supple after three hours or so. I like that my skin never reacted to the ingredients, at all!

Even during days that have bee more stressful than normal, my skin remained moisturized. I’ve also forgotten to moisturize my face one day and seen the difference between skin that’s dry and flaky and skin that’s protected with SkinCorrect!

Results Say It All

Ever since I got a baby I’ve been incredibly cautious when it comes to skincare, since I don’t want any chemical from affecting my baby, from fetus to newborn. Before SkinCorrect I usally only cleanse my face with water or expensive hypoallergenic products like Physiogel or Cetaphil.

As smooth as baby

At least now, based on these pictures, I can have good skin that’s almost like my baby’s, using products that are locally made and far less expensive than the heavily marketed brands.


My only issue would be the oily scent. Other than that, I’m happy I could still make selfies even though I’m losyang, because of how my skin remains looking good.


No makeup necessary!


Asian Secrets Whitening Body Scrub Review

Skin whitening has always been an obsession for many Asian women. It’s strange, really: Whilst Caucasians envy tan skin, Asians find lighter and whiter skin very alluring. And vanity so consumes us women that the market is filled with various whitening body scrubs.

Personally, though, I’m really just after even skin tone.

So when I got a hold of a couple of tubs from Asian Secrets, I went ahead and tried it right away. Nothing wrong with taking a bath again in the morning, right?

After getting awesome lightening results from a bodycare regimen using the cool package from SkinWhite and Ocean Potion, I have grown antsy just waiting for that beautiful skin the Media has promised us Filipinas. But then I realized, hey, I can’t really get that Georgina Wilson puti now can I? I mean, genetically speaking, I have a higher rate of skin pigmentation.

Now I’m just curious to find out if I could still get my skin a tad bit lighter, thankyouverymuch.
Let me share with you the two tubs I got from Asian Secrets:

Licorice and Mulberry Leaf Extract variant on left;
Seaweed Extract and Vitamin E on right

The Licorice and Mulberry Leaf Extract variant offers a very faint, almost sweet and fruity scent. I prefer the Seaweed Extract variety because it reminds me of blue slurpee from 7 Eleven.

Each tub’s winning ingredients? Tocopheryl acetate (a.k.a. Vitamin E) , Mineral Oil, Camellia Sinensis extract, Olive Oil, Glycerin, Squalene, Dimethicone, and Titanium Dioxide.

Since UNILAB is a trusted name in prescription and consumer health products, I’m confident that I can rely on the information on the packaging. When it clearly says “Dermatologist-tested” AND “Hypoallergenic”, then it IS safe for my sensitive skin!


PRO TIP: Use the product on DRY SKIN!

Stuff I love about Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub

  • Effectively removes dead skin cells through gentle exfoliation
  • Evens skin tone on elbows, knees, armpits and the area between the thighs.
  • Product contains Vitamin E and Green Tea extract—powerful antioxidants that help protect skin from free radicals.
  • Emollients Squalene and Olive Oil help lock down skin’s needed moisture.


The only downside I see about the product is that it takes some meticulous rinsing to get rid of the exfoliating beads.

The results are worth the trouble, because I noticed soft and supple skin right after first use. I like that the product leaves almost no scent at all, because otherwise it would clash with my favorite perfume.

Price: Php90 – 150 depending on location and tub size
Rating: Five out of five stars (Especially because it’s affordable!)
