I want to make this announcement a little bit more personal so I can thank you guys for supporting me since day one.
I was inspired to do blogging and video blogging in 2015 because I did nothing but watch Youtube videos. In 2016, I started to learn more about blogging/vlogging. The first ever blogs I posted was in July 2016. And today, 2017 will come to an end (welcome 2018! Yay!) and I will have my own website! I'm super excited because I might have my own domain, merchandise, etc.

I will re-upload and repost all the blog articles I posted here on my new website.

OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH, which is an annual campaign to increase the awareness of this disease.
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
WHAT IS BREAST CANCER? Breast cancer is a group of cancer cells (malignant tumor) that starts in the cell of the breast. Cancer grows when cell's DNA is damaged. "HOW" and "WHY" is a cell's DNA gets damaged is still unknown.
All people, whether male or female, are born with some breast cells and tissue that have the possibility to develop into cancer. However, breast cancer in men is rare, with only about 2,190 diagnosed each year.
The sooner breast cancer gets diagnosed, the better your odds of getting a successful treatment for it. Now, how do we "self-exams"?
It is better to wait 3-5 days after your period ends before you self-exam. That's because hormonal changes before your period can cause a temporary thickening in your breast that goes away after your period. Fi…

my updated skincare routine

I’ve been posting my updated skincare routine blogs recently. By now, you should know that it is pretty much the same thing. Double cleansing, Clay mask/Exfoliating, Toning, Sheet mask, Essence, Serum, Moisturizer, Eye and lip cream, and Sunscreen. I guess the only things that are changing are the products. But nonetheless, everything's the same. (Except, of course, it depends on what my skin needs during those times)

So, this post would be more on a review of products side and why do I love them (since they are in my skincare routine).

o n e  makeup removerI just emptied out the bottle of L'occitane Pivione Sublime Perfecting makeup remover (I love that one) so I switch to my current solid balm that transforms into silky oil cleanser, Banila Co. Clean It Zero Classic. I got it from Pepe & Ko. I love it because of it's sorbet-soft, lightweight texture that effortlessly removes stubborn makeup without stripping down natural skin oils. It has papaya extract that works to…

[Thank you Farmer] True Water Deep Serum review!


I got this one recently and let us get straight to the point—I have no regrets. The night before using this product, my skin was so dull and dehydrated. It gets so tired from all the works and stress I've been up to. Then the morning after I woke up, my skin looks so moist (not in a sticky way), hydrated and replenished. I would definitely keep on using this product until it empties out! Would even buy another bottle. 

True Water Deep Serum is also an anti-wrinkle product. If you have been following my social media accounts, you know that I always say that you should apply on anti-wrinkle products as early as now because once you already have wrinkles, even though you used all the anti-wrinkle products in the world, it will not go away. The only solution is, of course, injections.

  The product comes with a pump. I like that kind of packaging because it promotes cleanliness and avoids contamination.

Now, moving on …


Hello, guys! I am super excited for my upcoming #MinimalismGiveAwayContest! I will be going to post the mechanics and T&C’s on that giveaway post itself so you don’t have to read this. But this post will help you understand the purpose of my #MinimalismGiveAwayContest and what it is all about.

First things first, what is Minimalism? According to Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus from The Minimalist — “Minimalism is a tool that can assist you in finding freedom. Freedom from fear. Freedom from worry. Freedom from overwhelming. Freedom from guilt. Freedom from depression. Freedom from the trappings of the consumer culture we’ve built our lives around. Real freedom.”
I wanted to share the same thought with you guys because I know a lot of people that take things they don’t need and ends up in a pretty bad situation. I will make myself as an example. Before, I thought that in order to be pretty I need to have tons of makeup. Though it’s good to have a collection but I can’t r…

APRIL SKIN: PinkyPiggy Collagen Pack Review by Crimson Chrysanths

Hello, everyone!
I’ve been testing out and using this product for a past couple of weeks.
If you want to know what my thoughts, then please keep on reading! 😍📖
I got this collagen cream from Pepe and Ko and it retails for 80 dirhams. It’s pretty pricey for me knowing that I am only a student and at the same time there are a lot of good moisturizers out there that retails for only 25-50 dirhams. So, this product must better work! 
PRODUCT CLAIMS: ✔️ Good for all skin types ✔️ Contains 60% (600,000ppm) hydrolyzed collagen along with Tremella Fuciformis extract and Opuntia Coccinellifera extract to provide intense hydration and enhanced complexion. (WHAT?)
Hydrolyzed (hydrolysed) collagen is composed of amino acids, which help form a new collagen in the body. Technically, we already have collagen on our body. Now, what it really is and why people are obsessed with it? Collagen claims that it diminishes wrinkles and fine lines. Although it is not true that your wrinkles can truly disappear …


Understanding the importance of your skin barrier is essential for you to have a healthy skin. WHAT IS SKIN BARRIER?
The skin barrier, also known as permeability barrier; moisture barrier; or lipid barrier, is the outermost layer of our skin's surface that consists of cells and lipids (fats). Skin barrier is responsible to make sure moisture does not evaporate from our skin. It also serves as a protective shield against pollution, harmful microorganisms, etc by producing antimicrobial peptides and proteins.
When we take care of our skin barrier, our complexion appears smooth, clear, even-toned and balanced. Hence, it explains if you are experiencing redness, irritation, breakouts, rashes, etc that your skin barrier is damaged.

To further understand, let us use the famous Brick Wall Analogy by Dr. Peter Elias of the University of California. Barrier function refers to the stratum corneum layer of skin (outermost layer of the epidermis) which is analogous to a brick wall. The bricks ar…
