BeautyMNL Haul | Elella Ginseng Therapy + Dove Hair Therapy

Bonjour! It's been a while (again) since my last blog update. Regardless of my inactivity these past months, I'm still receiving comments and views, especially to my Cathy Doll Ready 2 White product review.
Just this month, BeautyMNL handpicked me to test run their site. Of course, the testing won't be complete if there's no purchasing occurs. Lol. I added to my cart the Elella Ginseng Therapy (Travel Kit) which includes a Toner, Refreshing Gel, Deep Cleansing Foam, Emulsion (30 ml each), the CC Cream and Clarifying Essence (both 10 ml each) and a cute little orange pouch to complete its convenience experience. I also added the  Dove Straight Silky Shampoo + Conditioner, where I included a quick review later on this post.
Without further ado, let me introduce to you what I got from the BeautyMNL site.

A little background about Elella Cosmetics, this skin care line is originally from South Korea. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, another Korean product review?! Yup! Haha. 
"Elella claims to help customers achieve natural beauty and maintain youthful skin. They vow to offer its customers the most satisfying experience in skin care and aging prevention."
Its main ingredient, Ginseng, is known as an anti-aging ingredient and helps tone and brighten skin. Ginseng is considered a strong anti-aging skin care treatment because of its ability to rejuvenate the skin.
More benefits of Ginseng to your skin are:
  •  Reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Anti-aging to help firm and tighten your look.
  • Great for sensitive and oily skin. 
  • Brightens skin tone.
  • Protects the skin from environmental stressors (e.g radiation, pollution).
 1.) Ginseng Therapy Deep Cleansing Foam. I use this twice a day, and my favorite part is using it after a long tiring day because I love how it refreshes my face especially when I apply heavy makeup. It also claims to gently exfoliate dead skin cells to unclog pores and leaves skin glowing and soft to the touch.
2.) Ginseng Therapy Refreshing Gel. This lotion is a must-use product after showering, not only does it give moisture to my skin it also keeps my skin smooth throughout the day.
 3.) Ginseng Therapy Emulsion. Honestly, I was clueless for the purpose of this product. What does "Emulsion" do? Or What does it even mean? It comes with a special instruction to tap lightly onto your skin once the cream is applied. What I like about it is it doesn't feel heavy on my skin because of its lightweight consistency and is perfect for oily skin.
4.) Ginseng Therapy Toner. Helps restore the skin’s hydration levels after cleansing with betaine, its function is that it can temporarily decrease the depth of wrinkles, giving the face a much smoother appearance.

5.) Ginseng Therapy Clarifying Essence. This product is perfect for those who have dull, rough, exhausted skin. It concentrates on helping the skin regenerate.
6.) Ginseng Therapy Perfect Face CC Cream. What's amazing about this CC Cream is that it adapts to match your color and tone so no need to buy a specific shade to match your skin tone.

Quick Review: Dove Hair Therapy
I used to love my natural wavy black hair, but when I turned 14 and I experienced my first hair rebonding and realized straight hair suits me better, I got addicted to hair treatments especially hair coloring. I started at Copper to a more lighter color every time I visit the salon. They will always ask me if I have my hair bleached but it's just years of continuous coloring treatment. I got fond of treating my hair that I didn't realize I was gradually damaging my locks.
Good thing Dove Straight & Silky Shampoo + Conditioner is here to rescue my damaged hair! No need to spend thousands at the salon because I get to take care of my locks even at home. Now I have no problem for managing my hair every day.
My orders came 1 day before my flight to Boracay, talk about perfect timing. Even if they indicated that deliveries for provinces will take up to 5 to 7 days after ordering, they still managed to deliver my orders fast and just in time for my trip.
I got the travel kit for Php 776, it's still at 10% off and so are each of the items. If you're interested in trying Elella Cosmetics, create your account and purchase them here.
I had a fast and worry-free transaction in BeautyMNL, they have a wide range skin care, makeup products, cosmetic tools, and accessories - from the cult favorites like Benefit, Nars and L'oreal to local finds like Snoe Beauty, Suesh and Zenutrients - I bet you'll need to dedicate your whole day just by browsing their shop. I also like how you can easily navigate and explore the site so you won't be confused to find what you might be looking for! And they're on Free Shipping when your total reaches Php 1,500 and above. 

If everything is in the cart and you're just waiting for your orders to arrive, you can check their in-house magazine, Bloom where you can find a variety of articles about skin care, makeup products you have to splurge or save, and even the best hairstyle that'll suit your face!
Here are some of my favorite articles that you can check out, too!
If you’re interested to read what other people reviewed about the product you availed or a certain product you’re interested to try next time, BeautyMNL also has a section dedicated to all products reviews by real-life customers.

I guess that’s it about my BeautyMNL Haul + Site Test. Have you tried shopping on their site? What product/s did you buy? Let’s talk about their hassle-free transaction below. 👇😘

Cathy Doll Ready 2 White | Product Review

Little did we know, Korea has been slowly invading the Philippines - oh wait, let me rephrase that - WE ARE 1O1% AWARE THAT KOREA HAS ALREADY CONQUERED US AND OBVIOUSLY WE LET THEM CAPTURE US. From their foods, products, movies or tv shows, culture and not to mention, Oppas *winks*. To be honest, what's not to love about Korea?

Spending my Saturday with my Siblings at the Pet Lover's Cafe

February 4, 2017
My Saturdays usually consist of researching, blogging and going out with friends. But last Saturday I decided to spend quality time with my siblings because I think it's been months since I last bonded with them.

Korean Food Trip @ Sing Sing Meatshop

Amidst the celebration of the Chinese New Year, Fireworks and Nian Gao (tikoys), who would've thought that dining in a Korean restaurant (instead of Chinese) is an option? Haha!
