BB cream and CC cream

ang dami na namang ganap lately, isa sa mga laging topic sa parlor eh what is bb cream ba and cc cream? so bigyan ko kayo ng konting information. first is ang kilala na nang lahat na si BB not Bebe Gandanghari kung hinde BB cream.

what is BB cream?
BB cream stands for blemish balm,blemish basebeauty balm or beblesh balm (apparently because of a trademark in Korea on the word "blemish"), and in Western markets, beauty balm. It is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia, although larger beauty brands are increasingly introducing BB creams to Western markets.

BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage.

So what exactly does BB Cream do?

Korean celebrities seem to be blessed with naturally flawless skin, as you've surely noted if you watch K-dramas a lot. Well now we know that they'e able to maintain their beautiful skin with the help of a secret weapon called the BB Cream.

This "public" version of BB cream is suited for all skin types and are targeted to those who have sensitive and acne-prone skin. It has the advantages of both skin care and makeup as it improves the skin's condition and evens out the skin tone while providing coverage for dark spots and other blemishes.

General products features and benefits:

*Produces a very natural. "no make-up look"

* Provides perfect coverage like a foundation would but since it's not as thick, it doesn't clog the pores

* Works pretty much like a tinted moisturizer

* Conceals all types of pigmentation, discoloration, acne and other blemishes

* Has healing properties that soften, smoothen and refine skin

* Encourages skin regeneration to create and maintain youthful skin

* Contains UV Protection for healthy skin (SPF levels differ for each brand/product)

* Anti-wrinkle and skin-lightening benefits (available for some variants)

so yan ang ganap sa BB cream I only tries and used 2 BB products one is the l'oreal bb max super bongga ito matipid gamitin at perfect dahil spf50& pa+++ pa sya.

my newest fave naman eh ang bago kong discovery ditey sa japan, ang bb mineral mouuse, I have tried before sa bangkok magpa-muk-up sa shu eumura using the mouuse type at super ganda ng outcome at very light sa face pero not in the pocket. pero nung pagpunta ko dito sa Japan ay perfect match ang maybelline BB mineral mousse is super bongga, very ultra light sa face ang feel at lakas maka-smooth ng finish ng bb mousse na ito, it will perfectly blend with uour skin tone as well, taray diba? and added factor na may spf30 & pa+++ ang ganap nito.

what is CC cream?

CC cream, also known as Color Control cream, or color correcting cream, is a refined blemish balm cream or BeautyBalm created and developed in Korea. BB (Blemish Balm) cream was originally formulated in Germany and has in recent years gained popularity in Asia, and is also gaining popularity Europe and North America.CC cream is widely used in Asia to provide natural-looking skin coverage. While BB cream was manufactured primarily as a skincare product, CC cream was developed to retain all the skincare benefits of BB cream with added nourishing ingredients and the additional aim to provide more effective skin coverage. CC cream was formulated with technology originating in Japan and further developed in Korea.

CC cream's benefits are reputed to include sun protection as well as better coverage, blending, and treatment of uneven skin tones than BB creams. Some users find it to have a lighter texture than BB cream, which allows for smoother application with a less oily finish.

so na gets nyo ba? its still a BB cream yun nga lang medyo nag-level-up kasi may mga nadagdag na nourishing something, kung ano yun, hinde ko rin alam kaya i-google nyo nalang. ang alam ko lang na CC cream brand ay chanel na super avail ako ng tester sa rustans, pero dito sa Japan may mga ilang japanese brand nadin ang nag-oofer.

1st is this CC cream ng the face shop, di ko knows kung meron nasa pinas nito pero ang perfect nito kasi ang lakas maka-baby face ng effect ma pati Mama ko napansin na ang kinis artista ng effect sa akin.

I also bought another CC cream from the golden shop naman, ito mas less ang spf factor pero nag-add naman sila ng argan oil na bongga din ang ganap sa skin.

grabe daming ganap na pampa-beauty sa Japan dun na halos napupunta ang okane ko, but its ok kung ikaka-ganda naman natin push lang ng push.

COLLAGEN for the new Generation for a more youthful glow and freshness

ihay naku, ito na naman may bago na naman akong nasagap na tsismis, kaya naman mega research agad ako kung saan ako makakabili dito sa Japan nung bagay na natsitsismis na super effective daw for more youthful glow ng skin natin. hey Glutathione your out dahil ang in na ngayon ay walang iba kung hinde ang COLLAGEN. pag naiisip ko ang Collagen isa lang ang palagi ang naiimagine ko, yan ay si La Gretta, hinde mo knows yun? kaloka si Gretchen Baretto yun. diba siya lang naman ang may commercial na collagen sa pinas at siya naman talaga ang perfect endorser nun dahil ang lola nyo ang young at fresh ng look.

oh anong say nyo? ang fresh lang diba? 

Q & A muna tayo ah para pasok sa banga...

What is Collagen?

Collagen is a protein that occurs naturally in the body. It plays a major role in maintaining tissue suppleness and elasticity. It's a beauty essential, key to maintaining a youthful appearance.

Why take Collagen supplements?
Starting around the age of 20, the amount of collagen in your body starts to decline. You can replenish collagen through diet to some extent, but the effects of diet alone are limited. That's why collagen in drinks is attracting so much attention. 
Readily dissolved in liquids, powdered Amino Collagen is designed to be consumed in drinks, making it easy to get all the collagen you need to build the foundations for beauty. The suggested daily dose is 5,000 mg.

oh ito pa check nyo pics below para sa mga FAQ nyo...

so ok naba sa inyo yun? naintindihan nyo ba? 

anyhow syempre ang lola nyo hindi magpapahuli sa mga ganyang ganap alam nyo naman na pag mga ganyan na youthfulness at pampa-fresh eh best foot forward tayo palagi, kaya naman since nag-avail nadin naman ako ng tokyo love soap edi avail nadin ako ng collagen which is by the way perfect partner sila para mas fast forward ang result.

dito sa Japan ang daming collagen na ganap, pero tatlo lang talaga ang best brand dito; in particular order 3 Shiseido, 2 Lotte and 1 Meiji. yes Meiji talaga akala ko din nung una is chocolate brand lang siya yun pala #1 din ang brand nayan interms of pampa-beauty sa Japan, oh hinde nyo alam yun noh, may natutunan kayo sakin na trivia. 

SHISEIDO - The Shiseido Collagen Powder is made from 100% low molecular fish collage, which offers higher levels absorption than pig-deprives collagen. Just 1 spoon will meet out daily requirement of 5000mg collagen, you can drink with tea, coffee, juice and yogurt. You can add into your soup as well. It don't have any awful fishy smell. It smells like a milk powder but it does not contain any taste so you can mix with any type of beverages because it wont affect the original taste. 

daming variety ng collagen ng shiseido ayaw paawat may powder in a form of sachet para easy to use or yung nasa pouch pwede ring can it comes with a scooper na, may capsule and tablet din at meron ding ready to drink na sa botelya na parang yakult ang ganap kaso may kamahalan.

LOTTE - The beauty secret of Japanese & Korean Celebrities, LOTTE Collagen, is now in IMPROVED FORMULA!
As one of the most reputable Collagen foods, it offers high quality ingredients & effective result with low molecule & high absorption. The result is very promising and lasting after consuming it constantly for a certain period.
The TOP SELLER, LOTTE Collagen Food Powder, is in newly improved formula with added Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Placenta Extract, Lotus Embryo Extract and Pearl Barley.

How to use: Please mix a 1 spoon amount (about 6.7g) per day, into your favorite drink or food.

eh syempre kanya-kanyang market yan para makabenta kaya naman si lotte di nagpapigil may mga add-ons pa like vit.C, pearl barley at kung ano-ano pa.

MEIJI - Collagen holds the key to “youthfulness and beauty”. The amount of collagen in your skin starts to drop sharply after the age of 20. Collagen helps to restore skin elasticity and diminish fine lines. Therefore, replenishing generous amounts of collagen is a shortcut to maintaining a youthful appearance. Meiji Amino Collagen is made by high quality of fish collagen peptide, it contains very low calories.

The benchmark amount is 5000 mg, because about one-third of the amount of protein we need per day, one spoon (7g) per day is strongly recommended.

HOW TO USE : Take one spoon of powder into cup and mix with juice or water.

ito talaga ang inavail ko kasi bga ito ang top brand, I dont settle for quantity I go for quality, taray ng motto ko diba? may dalawang ganap ang meiji isang regular lang like the pics below which is siya ang ginagamit ko together with my tokyo love soap.

at meron ding meiji premium na medyo may kamahalan from the word premium alam na agad na mahalia fuentes ng very light.

MEIJI PREMIUM - Amino Collagen Premium is a superb combination of the latest trend of most needed beauty ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid (for daily moisture) and Coenzyme Q10 (to support energy for easy absorption). Highly recommended for women who is seeking firmer, more elastic and radiant skin. Embark on an early anti-aging regime by taking Amino Collagen Premium today!

life in Japan...

its my 1st week of here in Japan already and I am totally loving it. oh well siguro dahil hinde pa ako bored. sobrang bilis ng araw dito, walang time to have some social life, oh well wala pa naman akong friend so wala talaga. ang kausap ko lang palagi is si Mama and yung ka-work namin na si tita Tess. 

yes I am working already in a farm, hinde madali pero kailangan kayanin since the pay is really good compared to the job I used to have. dito nakaya at kinakaya ko ang maghapon na nakatayo, mag-seal, mag-repack, mag-weight ay kung ano-ano pa.

hinde pala talagang madali kumita ng pera, mahirap at nakakapagod. bawal ako mag-complaint since ito yung way para mas maabot ko pa ang mga pangarap ko at mabili ang mga gusto kong bilhin, puntahan ang mga lugar na gusto kong bisitahin. hinde totoong porke't nasa abroad ka eh mayaman ka.

I love how Japanese people are very workaholic, dito bawal ang tamad kahit 70y/o yata eh work padin ang peg, like mai san yung ka work namin sa farm his age is around 60-70 pero keri padin nya magbuhat ng mabibigat may slightly kabagalan nga lang but then ang lolo nyo naka-rolex na hold with stones pa, san kapa diba? bawal din ang petiks dito, kung wala ka ng gagawen pwes maghanap ka ng gagawen at wag kang basta tumunganga jan, dito productivity is the best policy. 

sa bahay ang gulo ng balur ni mudak, oh well I understand naman since cya lang din naman ang gumagawa at minsan di na ma-keri maglinis sa pagod sa work eh hinde naman uso ang kasambahay dito noh, sariling sikap lang palagi. kaya naman best in tambak ang ganap sa balur, buti nga nakapag-linis ako ng kwarto dahil best in alikabok naman ang ganap dito, I am occupying na kasi yung room ng kapatid kong lalaki which is now renting his own appt somewhere near lang naman sa balur since april, kaya simula nun namahay na ang alikabok sa kwarto nya.

usually we ate outside or buy ng bento meals since wala ng time para nga makapag-luto, at hinde din ako basta-basta makaka-rampa since may kalayuan ang mga bilihan ng bagay-bagay sa balur. kaya naman kailangan my kuruma buti nalang best in drive si okaasan at imoto pag gusto kong umalis like sight seeing sa grocery, drugstore at kung saan saan pa. yung mga mall kasi na bongga malayo kaya in the mean time nakukuntento na ako sa grocery muna.

update ko pa kayo sa ibang ganap sa buhay japan japan...

isa sa mga eksena sa farm ang mag-pack ng blueberries...

cute bento sushi and sashimi...pag around 7pm nagsasale sila kaya best in avail kami pambaon sa work kinabukasan.

the many bags of Kate Moss

Today’s the first official day of New York Fashion Week, and while Megs and I are out and about doing the whole NYFW thing, we though it only appropriate that we give you an opportunity to spend some time looking through the considerable handbag hoard of a real, capital-F fashion icon, not just some celeb. The only choice, of course, was Kate Moss. Before the “model off duty” look was a thing, Kate was dressing in skinny pants, animal prints and lots of great handbags.

As you might expect, Kate’s collection skews largely neutral, and within that, largely black. In that way, she’s a girl after my own heart, and likely after many of yours. She’s designed several lines of bags for Longchamp, of course, but her whole personal collection was a joy to sift through, all the way from one of the first Balenciaga Motorcycle Bags ever made to the latest from Saint Laurent. Check out the full show below and wish us luck at Fashion Week!

Kate’s collection is so vast and varied that I’m not sure where to begin, except to say that she has a serious and long-running love of bags that are black and simple, like this Yves Saint Laurent Easy Tote

Moss has carried quite a bit of neutral YSL over the years – check out her taupe ostrich Yves Saint Laurent Downtown Tote

Of course, Kate also has the original YSL It Bag, a cream-colored Yves Saint Laurent Muse Tote. one of my dream ba akin nalang ito teh...

Kate even uses her Bayswaters as travel bags, although at this size, it’s actually called a Mulberry Piccadilly Leather Holdall. Bet ko ito as a weekend bag perfect pang escapade ng very light.

Kate carried this Prada Antik Bowler to the first day of school with her daughter. syempre hinde pwedeng walang prada paandar ang lola nyo.

ganito dapat ang emote pag nasisindi ng yosi para clazz.. walang konek.

si ate rumaket pala sa longchamp this time she's carrying her own design kate moss x longchamp gloucester duffel...woah hitap i-spell ah

oh isa pang kate moss x longchamp line ni ate...di talaga papa-awat eh

oh ito daw favorite nya sa longchamp brand...okay perfect sakin ang animal print..kaya 100 ang grade mo sakin.

isa pang weekender bag ni ate gucci gucci din daw pag may time...

syempre hinde pwdeng walang louis vuitton ang lola mo eh nakatatak kaya ang face nya sa brand na iyon...pahiram nga ako nito.

at bilang new face ng givenchy si ate...ikaw na talaga! eto givenchy antigona naman ang carry nya...kainggit.

eh syempre hinde pwdeng walang chanel bag ang lola edi na-award xa kay lola karl ko...

hay naku tama na...mamigay ka naman ng isang bag jan...hagis mo sakin.
