Chihuahua Cosmetics Creme Lipstick in Penelope

Hi dearies!

I'm growing fond of small packaging, specially now that I realized how heavy my travel bag usually is! Hahaha! I always want my travel essentials to be complete because I easily worry whenever I forget to bring something and that includes my makeup (gotta look pretty for the travel pics!). So I really appreciate it when makeup brands have smaller versions so that it is easier to carry around. That's what made me check out Chihuahua cosmetics.

One of the products that caught my attention is the...

September (2019) Haul: Birthday Treats

Hey loves!

My birthday is in September so I usually treat myself with many beauty-related items because they make me happy. Although recently, I have been shopping a lot, but what's different now is most of the items that I got this month are free or given as gifts! Awesome right!? It's like the best birthday gift ever!!!

So without further a do, here are the new items I added in my stash last September...

First off, as an Althea Angel, I was given the privilege of shopping at their website using the rewards points amounting to 5k pesos that they gave me as a gift for my birthday. It was such a great and generous gift. I'm so thankful for this and it's really a great way to be acquainted with more kbeauty finds!

I didn't get the items in one go. I bought them in different dates because I was hoping that maybe they'll introduce new items within the month that I might want to try too. One of the packages I bought early in September, while the next order was done near the end of the said month.

Get to Know Dr. Morita Mask Sheets—One of Asia's Bestselling Mask Sheets

Hello loves!

For the longest time, I've mostly been exposed to Korean skincare sheet masks. Although I have used a few from other places, but to be honest, I wasn't really interested in them until this year. Before, I would use a sheet like once or twice a month only and I didn't even care what kind of mask it was. I have oily skin and living in a highly humid country so I never felt like my skin needed extra hydration.  I actually I just know that sheet masks hydrates my skin and pretty much acted as a moisturizer so why use it if I already have a moisturizer in my routine?

It changed when I went to countries with dryer climates and I actually felt the sting of the cold air, but I came prepared because I brought with me some mask sheets that I used every night. I really felt the difference on my skin when I walk under the dry weather. 

And then I found out that even if I have oily skin, I can still have dehydrated skin! That's when your skin doesn't get enough moisture that it needs. Having acne-prone skin, I have used skincare products such as acids that help dry up acne and peel off scars and other skin imperfections. Also, I'm guilty of not taking in the prescribed amount of drinking water daily. Let's remember that our body is made up of mostly water so we have to make sure that we replenish the moisture it needs.

Here enters Dr. Morita, a brand from Taiwan that specializes in skincare, particularly mask sheets. Their masks are the no.1 bestselling sheet masks in Hong Kong and in Taiwan. The brand is now available via Watsons and SM Beauty and they held an event to celebrate the good news. In this event, I was able to learn from Dr. Chun Hsu Jou, the brand's CEO himself, more about how our skin can improve by doing just two important things...
