Beauty Product Review: Beauche

before Beauche (dark, pimply and oily)

after using 1 set of Beauche

I have been battling acne for ten years now. Battles have been won but the war isn’t over.

I’ve been suffering from oily skin ever since. I used powder foundations to control the shine but it only worsened my acne.

As a make-up artist, I feel that it is important to have good skin. It's part of one's branding, let alone self esteem.

A friend has introduced Beauche to me. I was apprehensive at first because of the hydroquinone content. However, I was impressed on the results so I decided to give it a shot.

The Beauche kit retails for Php 710. The kit has Kojic acid soap, 2 toners, 3 creams.

Kojic Acid Soap. This soap has an orange scent and it effectively dries out pimples

Skin Toner. Freshens the skin and prepares it for the entire regimen.

Clarifying Lotion. This contains hydroquinone and aids in revealing new skin.

Exfoliating Cream. As the term implies it helps exfoliate dead skin cells.

Rejuvinating cream. Enhances the effect of exfoliating cream.

Age eraser cream. My favorite. Acts as sunblock/foundation (spf 35)

I love this product!!! I can vouch for its effectiveness. I am on my third set now. I only use the exfoliating cream twice-thrice a week. I am currently on the maintenance stage.

Caveat: Yes, this product is stingy at first. But this works for sensitive skin. I have very sensitive skin and this product help me recover from my VMV Id disaster.

Two words: Tiis-ganda (endure the pain for the sake of beauty)

Hair Arsenal

I am the type of person who buys things in anticipation of a future need. When I entered make-up school, I saw the opportunity in learning hairstyling as well. From then on, I knew that I will venture into that beauty aspect in due time.

I started buying hairstyling tools and products. Luckily, imported brands can be bought at a cheap price here in Cubao.

I finally had my 6 hour hairstyling session with a friend who used to do my model’s hairstyle during our artistic makeup finals. It’s already October and I reckon that December, the wedding month is fast approaching.

Above are the pictures of my humble hairstyling tools and products. I know practice makes perfect and perfect practice makes permanent :)

I attended a 6-hour bridal entourage hairstyling training yesterday. It's time to convert proficiency to competence (translation: practice ;))
