Flawless Rejuvelite Mask Facial + Skin Update

A lot of people ask me about my current skin care routine. To be honest, not a lot has changed since the last time I gave an update. However, I did try a new facial treatment at Flawless - the Flawless Rejuvelite Mask Facial!

Here is my skin BEFORE the facial. My skin has been cooperating with me lately, not a lot of acne breakout and it has seemed to control the production of oil, therefore reducing the risk of acne breakout. The only concern I have with my skin these days are still the ice-pick scars and open and visible pores.




Flawless introduces a technologically advanced aesthetic treatment that sheds light to all skin concerns! The Rejuvelite Mask Facial is powered by LED technology that activates collagen production and boosts skin rejuvenation for total beauty. This treatment works by allowing the skin to absorb light energy to produce cellular fuel and increase activity of the body's natural healing and regeneration processes. Rejuvelight Mask Facial offers 7 different colors of visible light and infrared light to produce various benefits to the skin, such as firming lines, soothing skin, repairing damages, clearing acne and blemishes, reducing redness and balancing complexion.


Since you guys also know that I DO NOT belong in the "Forever Alone" zone anymore, I decided to go to Flawless with my boyfriend. (Why I do not want to show his face will be answered in another blog post.) My BF doesn't have acne like I do, but I am concerned about his skin because of the field of his work. He often gets exposed to heat, dust and sunlight and I noticed that his skin is dark, oily and has some spots. I thought the Flawless Rejuvelite Mask Facial could help improve his skin condition, too.



Apparently, it was his first time to ever have "pricking" facial. He has some spots that needed to be pricked. He suddenly gasped, "Love, is this Fractional Needling Therapy I'm having??!" LOL! 


At first, my BF thought it was awkward for him to be inside a room that is filled with so much PINK. But while we were inside the clinic, he told me he was shocked when he saw some other men having facial treatments as well.


He got to try the Rejuvelite first before I did. He was so excited and I was excited for him as well! In my mind, I was excited because this is one of the newest treatments at Flawless. However, I am sure my BF was excited because the mask looks like Iron Man or something. 


Ahhh, it looks so cool! I can't wait to try it!


While Bf was enjoying his Rejuvelite a.k.a. IRON MAN mask, I had my usual facial and pimple pricking. Before the Rejuvelite mask, Anti-septic mask was first applied on my skin to close the pores from the pricking and to prevent irritation. That is why my face looks glossy in the picture.


After years and years of going to Flawless alone, there HE is, a man beside me, laying on a pink bed, having facial treatment to support me and the things I enjoy. Aww. 


The last time I went to Flawless for a facial was 2 months ago. Every attendant in Flawless is knowledgeable and has gone through proper training. However, I have a few known attendants that handle me and have been handling my skin since my first few sessions at Flawless. Most of them have delicate hands, especially when it comes to the "pricking" part. My attendants, Lance(Flawless SM North) and Andy(Flawless Cubao), have unbelievable light hands even when pricking! Whenever these 2 girls would prick my pimples, it won't hurt and I could even sleep while they prick my acne culprits. 


But since a new attendant pricked my pimples, it felt different and painful that I cried and almost asked her to stop. I have high pain tolerance so when I say it hurts, it really hurts!


Anyway. Flawless offers Rejuvelite Mask Facials in 4 Full variants : Rejuvelite Oil Control Mask Facial, Rejuvelite Acne Control Mask Facial, Rejuvelite Age Defy Mask Facial and Rejuvelite Whitening Mask Facial. All variants cost Php 1,100 per session.


These gorgeous effects depend on the wavelengths of light used, which is determined by color. Red and Purple lights promote youthful beauty, red combats wrinkles and increases collagen production for a smoother, younger-looking skin, while purple increases cell regeneration and renewal. For damaged and irritated skin, cyan and yellow lights are useful for healing as cyan calms and soothes irritated skin and reduces swollen capillaries, and yellow alleviates redness and heals skin from inflammation, sunburn, windburn and other environmental damages.


#RelationshipGoals. If you have a significant other and you want to treat him, why don't you take him to Flawless? I am sure he would appreciate some pricking and an "Iron Mask" facial, too!

Here is my skin BEFORE and AFTER the Rejuvelite Mask Facial. Both with no powder nor foundation. Normally, my face would be swollen and pimples spots would be red right after a facial treatment. But because of the new Rejuvelite Mask, my face looks fresh and smooth, as if I never had pimple pricking! After the facial, we watched a movie and had dinner. It was my first time to ever go around the mall without powder or foundation on yet I was able to walk around confidently. 



MY THOUGHTS

PROs:
*No pain
*Reduces swelling of face after facial
*Minimizes the redness of pricked pimple
*Makes skin glow and supple

CONs:
*Expensive
*Light is a bit blinding
*Has no direct effect on pores and ice-pick scars


Here's my Mystery Man checking his skin after his Flawless Rejuvelite Mask a.k.a. "Iron Mask" mask. He was delighted to see his renewed, better-looking skin!

How much FREE PRODUCTS do bloggers get? | Part 2

One of the perks of being a YouTuber and a Blogger is that you get free products such as makeup, skin care items, clothes, shoes and even food! These stuff you could try, feature on your site, keep to yourself or even giveaway to loyal followers! If you recall, last time I did a video where I showed the products that I got in just 1 week. This time, I will show you all the sponsored a.k.a. free products I got in just 2 months!

Watch the video below to see ALL the products! 


The raw video took 1 hour in total! I was worried I wouldn't be able to shorten it to at least 20 minutes because I didn't want to bore you with a 1 hour long video. With much effort and a lot of cut and deleted talking scenes, I was able to successfully save it as a 19-minutes video! Whew!

I did this video not because I want to brag or to show-off the things that I get. This video is for people that actually enjoy watching haul videos. To be honest, I enjoy watching other people's haul videos, too! It makes me feel excited as well! It's like I also went shopping! 

Here are the brands and products I mentioned in the video:

Sephora featuring Too Faced products

 Every woman, especially those that are into makeup, love Sephora! I was so excited when I got an e-mail from them saying they want to send me some items! I also did another unboxing featuring only the products that I got from Sephora. Watch my Sephora Unboxing video HERE


Gift from Japan
These products were given to me by my Japanese friend, Akane! She gave me perfumes, Japanese snacks and authentic green tea! I am excited to wear the perfume and to make my own matcha ice shave! Yum!


Flawless
This box came as a surprise because I wasn't really expecting any package from Flawless. What's inside it surprised me even more! I love personalized gifts! It has my portrait which I really love and have already displayed in my room!


Sleek Makeup

I love Sleek Makeup because they are inexpensive yet they work really well! I find the Whimsical collection really cute! One of my favorite items from Sleek is their Matte Me Lip Creams!!! It is inexpensive yet stays on lips for hours! My favorites are Bittersweet and Birthday Suit.


BDJ Box and Elizabeth Arden
BDJ or Belle De Jour has been my partner for years already! They always come up with exciting and worth-waiting-for beauty boxes! One of their amazing boxes is this Elizabeth Arden exclusive box! My favorite from this box would be the Green Tea perfume! it smells so refreshing!


Ever Bilena

Ever Bilena is a local, Filipino brand of cosmetics. I also love this brand because the price of their items is really affordable without sacrificing quality! They have great products that are worth buying!


Sally Hansen
This parcel was sent to me by Rustan's marketing. I just love nail polishes so I was really delighted when I saw this box from them filled with Sally Hansen nail polishes, in my favorite shade of color, nonetheless!

Physiogel

These  products are new to me since I haven't really haven't tried Physiogel before. But because it is meant for sensitive and troubled skin like mine, I can't wait 'til I finish the products I am currently using so I could proceed to opening and trying these Physiogel goodies!


Maxfactor
This parcel was also from Rustan's marketing. I am happy they sent me basic makeup items like powder and mascara. I also like the brown pouch that they sent! Perfect as makeup bag when I travel!


Althea Korea


Althea Korea is one of my favorites, everrr! I mean, authentic and inexpensive Korean makeup and skin care products delivered right at your doorstep just a few days after you ordered it? How cool is that? You won't have to travel all the way to Seoul just for some Korean goodies! If you've tried for Korea, you already know how strict their embassy is when it comes to granting you permission to step their land, right? No? Oh well, maybe it's just me and my Korean dream that always doesn't push through. Hehe ^_^


Vitress
Hair products to help me tame my lifeless and frizzy hair! Thanks to Vitress for sending these!


Caronia
Caronia is one of my faovorite brand of nail products. They have nail polishes in delectable colors, especially perfect for Summer, Though, this time, they sent me nail care products to prep my nails before coloring.


Vitapack
Aside from my natural skin color, I got even darker when I recently went on a trip to Palawan. I know, there is nothing wrong with being dark, but I am basically a walking camouflage now as my skin color is uneven and patchy. I am excited to try these whitening products to help me even my skin tone and lighten my complexion.


Banish
Ahhhh, Banish! You guys always ask me about this! It's a DIY dermaroller than you can do on your own, right at the comfort of your home. Before, they would only send me the usual dermarollers. But this time, I am excited because they sent me skin care products as well as a new, gigantic pore roller! I can't wait to review these new items for you guys!


Olay
One Wash Wonder by Olay! I'll find out soon if it can really lighten my skin after just 1 wash!


from @BargainStudioPh
Yehey! Dry shampoo!!! If you haven't tried this yet, then you have no idea how happy I am that I discovered dry shampoo that only costs P200 each bottle! The ones that I have tried cost around Php 500 per bottle!!! That is $10 out of your wallet!! And the best part about this Hair Fairy dry shampoo? It smells and works just like the Php500 product I used before!


Palmolive
One of the things I can't live without is hair conditioner! I must have it! I must use it! i can't live without it! I was so happy when I received 9 bottles of Palmolive Naturals Conditioner! That's almost equivalent to 1 year supply of hair conditioner right there! Yay!


BDJ Box and Revlon

BDJ Box and Shiseido
These 2 boxes were also from Belle De Jour! I am so happy to be one of the blogger ambassadors of BDJ! Their beauty boxes never disappoint! Also worth waiting for and always worth the money!


Stylecon Asia loot bag
These products are from Stylehaul when I attended the Stylecon Asia here in Manila. Everything in the bag will surely make one drool as they are known brands and products!


ORLY
Yay for another set of nail polishes! This time, it's Orly! I am in love with this line called Pacific Coast Highway because the colors just screams "Kristine"!! I am a person who loves bold, vibrant colors!


L'oreal
One of my skin concerns, aside from open pores and acne marks, is my undeniably starting-to-age skin, I feel relieved when I received these products from L'oreal. Now, I know I will have something to thank myself for 10 or 20 years from now because I started using anti-aging products as early as now.


from @EdensParadise
These products were sent by an online shop. I love that they came up with own name of their products, that is just so creative! I mean, lip custard to refer to your lip products??



Maybelline
These are freebies given to me by GMA when I joined their Blogger's Style Camp 2016. I also love Maybelline but since I have too much products that I don't use anymore, I will be giving away most of these Maybelline items.


Banila Co.
This is one of my favorite Korean brands! I tried other Korean brands that focus on cute packaging but have mediocre products when it comes to quality. Banila Co. is worth your money because the products really work. I can't name a Banila Co. product that I didn't like upon initial use. Some of my favorites are the Prime Primer powder, Clean It Zero makeup remover and the Triple Wonder Gel Liner!


GMA Bloggers Style Camp
Some more products from GMA when I joined the Blogger's Style Camp 2016. I like that they gave away items that are very useful such as tumbler, selfie stick and power bank.

Canon
Last set is from Canon, care of GMA Blogger's Style Camp. These products were given to us on the awarding night of Blogger's Style Camp!


I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed taking photos of the products and writing this blog post. I really do apologize for the lack of blog posts lately. Happy start of the week, everyone! Stay safe, love people around you and always be grateful. Mwah!

Nail Art Workshop with Kristine! (Hey, that's me!)

After 3 months of keeping this blog post under my "drafts" list, it is now time to give it it's much deserved spotlight. Sharing with you guys what happened at my first-ever nail art workshop!

This Selfie and Nail Art Workshop was in partnership with some of my favorite brands : Casio and Caronia!



The workshop was held last May 28, 2016 at the Bonifacio High Street Park Central Square. I posted about this on my YouTube, Facebook and on Instagram and invited everyone to come! As expected, those loyal followers that were available on that day came to see and support me! Yay!

I was so nervous nobody would come to my event. Believe it or not, but I always find it overwhelming to say the word "FANS". Because I really do not consider any of you as my fan. Rather, I consider each and everyone of you as my friend. So, I was thinking all my friends would be busy that day. 

I was so glad when my real-life friend, Flora, came with me to give some support. Flora was one of my officemate/photographer back when I used to post #OOTD's. Now, we just occasionally meet whenever I ask her to come with me to events! Hehe


The first comer of the day award goes to my baby girl, Shane! She was the first to arrive the venue! Thanks for coming, Shane! I know you traveled far and had to skip work just to be able to make it to my event! Aww!

Anyway, since the 3 of us were to early (Casio staff were still setting up the tables and chairs), we decided to kill time by going to the grocery store. Hehe What a very Tita way for Flora and I to kill time. Shane is not yet a Tita so...


Here's my simple OOTD! Photo taken by my friend-slash-photographer, Flora!

I knew the venue was going to be in an open area so I wanted to dress comfortably. My shoes may look uncomfortable because of the heels but those are actually one of my comfiest heels ever!

Okay, time to set up! We went back to "my tent" so I could calm down and prepare for my (MY. Please repeat, MYYYYY) event! 

Attendees of this workshop already know how amazing the Casio Exilim TR60 is because they were able to try it and were able to take selfies with it. But for my readers that haven't experienced the magical camera yet, you guys can check out any Camerahaus stores. You could ask one of their friendly staff to demo the camera for you. If you are not from the Philippines and is from Malaysia, Singapore, Hong-Kong or Thailand, please check your local store.

Me taking a picture of the Casio Exilim TR60 camera using my Casio Exilim TR60. 


BTW, do you guys prefer the Purple or the Pink? My favorite color is PINK but it wasn't available then so I had to settle with Purple. But the Pink TR60 is like a love I never had. (lol) I always look at it and wonder how I would have felt if it was the one that I got. #hugot


The pretty and early birds of my event! Girls, thank you so much for coming despite the complicated location and hot Summer weather! I really appreciate each and everyone for coming!

The first picture posted was taken by Flora using my DSLR. This one was taken using my Casio TR60!

My future bloggers, YouTubers and online influencers! Hehe

Okay, so the venue of the workshop wasn't something grand or fancy. it was situated right in the middle of the park. It wasn't air-conditioned either. I was okay with the hot weather but I was worried my attendees would leave once they feel hot. I'm so glad none of them left and stayed until the end of the workshop and until our "Selfie session"!


Since it was my first time, I was a bit clueless how I would conduct the workshop. I had a lot of speech fillers, dead-airs and mishaps! Hehehe 

What I taught at the workshop was how to do 5 basic mail art designs such as water marbling, ombre design, animal print and more!

Here are all of the attendees of the event! Most of them are my loyal followers on YouTube and on Instagram. These girls are the first set of people that hit the like button and leave a comment whenever I post something. Truly supportive! I love these girls so much! (And YOU, too! I know you also wanted to be there with us but couldn't make it due to time unavailability or because you live outside my country. But I love YOU, too!)


I was not able to prepare slide presentation for them to show the step-by-step process on how to achieve each nail art design. I had to do it manually by showing them and doing a live nail art tutorial. The nail polishes were sponsored by Caronia, by the way. My girls tried to recreate my designs on their nails using the colorful Caronia polishes.



Such pretty hand and nails, don't you think? Of course, they are not mine! I have ugly hands in real life!! Hehehe 

If you were wondering why I have ugly hands, though, it because when I was young, my Mom and I had to survive living in small bedrooms for rent. To cut it short, we were poor. While my Mom went to work, I had to clean the place, do the dishes, wash and iron clothes, cook dinner, etc. I was too young then to know that I needed to wear gloves and that I should avoid washing my hands after cooking or ironing. The result, these ugly hands. But I am not ashamed of them. My ugly hands are reminder of my humble life as a kid and whenever I look back, I would always feel grateful because I have so much blessings now!

*cue Michael Jackson's Have You Seen My Childhood...?*

Okay, enough of my sad childhood! Here are some photos with my doting attendees.





The workshop ended at around 5PM. The end of my workshop marked the beginning of Michelle Dy's makeup workshop. I urged some of them to attend Michelle's workshop as she is also a good friend of mine. But before they head to her, I asked them for a group picture first!

Yay!! Monique is not in the photo because she had to leave early with her husband. But she is also one of the followers that I treasure the most because she is loving and dedicated. 

It's amazing how my readers and viewers would always tell me that I inspire them. But you guys just don't know that you inspire me more! I told you already that I wasn't considered pretty nor popular in elementary and high-school. But YouTube is a place where I met new friends and a found my deep passion. It's a place where I could share my talent and use my life stories to be able to give someone hope. Meeting you guys gives me more reasons to continue this journey on the internet. I am and will always be grateful to each and everyone of you. I would have stopped years ago if not for people that kept watching my uploads and kept reading my posts. You are the reason I am here on the internet sharing my life for the world to see. YOU INSPIRE ME.


By the way, here is my squad that day. My cousin, Justine, who woke up early on her day-off just to be able to witness my first event. And then, Flora. I told you about her already, Please scroll up! Hehe

The last picture is a collage of my "selfies" with some of the attendees. Or course, we used the Casio Exilim TR60! Notice how we all managed to look fresh and flawless in the pictures despite the hot, Summer day!


Thanks, girls, for attending my first-ever event! It took me 3 months to post this because that's how overwhelmed I was with your love and support! Hehe Kidding aside, thank you and I love you!

Thanks to Casio and to Caronia for sponsoring this Selfie and Nail Art Workshop! I am positive this won't be my last project with you. As I love both of the brands, I am sure I'll be working with you again! Thank you for organizing and setting up Kristine's first-ever workshop!

* * *

And, that is what happened at my event. MY EVENT! Hehehe I cringe at words like MY (My channel, My fans, etc.) I almost never use those phrases. But for the word EVENT, I'm giving an exemption!

Thank you for reading today! Have a nice weekend and stay safe, everyone! Always pray before bedtime and smile when you wake up in the morning!
