Having a very busy schedule packed with shoots, beach trips, city excursions and lots of time under the sun takes it toll on my skin. Imagine all of the make up that’s layered on to you for hours in a day + all of the dust and dirt from your surroundings that stick to it. (Ew) I always make sure to cleanse and moisturize properly because bad skin can make you look like you’ve aged so much faster. Girls, I highly recommend that you never go to bed with make up (more on this soon), and always always shower before you sleep and before you start your day. You don’t want smelly sheets and smelly clothes right? Anywayyy, I always love trying new products, especially when they’re natural and organic- and especially when they have cute packaging! My recent haul comes from Happy Skin and includes a variety of soaps, lotions and SPFs (my all time must haves). I loooove skin products so much, I even once considered doing a beauty blog! But it entails so much more work (and time that I don’t have!) So today, since I am still stress-free, I will try my best to do a decent skin care post for you, featuring Happy Skin products!
I know some of y’all are totally against skin whitening (as am I- how much whiter can I get??!), but I do like whitening products because they address discoloration issues like scars and uneven skin tone. I prefer whitening over tanning because even though my ultimate dream is to have beautifully bronze Brazilian skin, I don’t think it suits my very asian facade! Plus, I also know a lot of my Filipina readers are in love with whitening products (based on comments about my kili kili lol), so for those of you out there, this one is for you!
The photo above is Happy Skin’s Extreme Bright body set which includes:
Extreme bright night lotion 120ml
Extreme bright day lotion w/ SPF 70 120ml
Extreme bright soap 150g
Extreme bright scrub 100g
Extreme bright body compound 100g
The extreme bright products are infused with grape seed extract that keeps the skin young and naturally light with double acting anti-aging properties. Alpha arbutin doubles the whitening property and kojic acid enzyme that gently exfoliates & rejuvenated the skin, thus preventing cellular damage, premature aging and prevents skin discoloration.
Also up there is the Day Elixir w/ SPF 45 -a concealer/serum for day use that’s infused with mulberry, citrus fruits and glutathione. It lightens, smoothens and gives skin a flawless finish while nourishing skin and protecting it from ageing. I love products that give coverage and have positive benefits for the skin at the same time! Super sulit sa time!
I also love giving away soaps as presents or part of giveaways just because they are so cute and fun! Happy Skin has these available for you:
Flawless gluta soap which inhibits melanin production, detoxifies, moisturizes and hydrates the skin while targeting uneven skin tone.
Kojic Papaya soap which has 2 of the popular whitening ingredients in Asia-kojic and papaya. This prevents age spots and hyper pigmentation. It can also dry up pimples, rejuvenate and brighten skin with skin firming and exfoliating effects.
Black bleaching soap
which I was so interested in, just because- hey! It’s black soap! Surprisingly, it’s also good for facial whitening, removing pimples, freckles and other skin blemishes. Though I like my freckles, so I don’t use this on my face! It also has singkamas which resists free radicals in cells, accelerates skin’ metabolism and moisturizes skin.
Pimple-Away soap which eliminates pimples (DUH), blackheads and white heads. It treats moderate acne, wrinkles and sun damaged skin.
+ the Extreme Bright I was talking about earlier.
Last but not the least is the Skin Essentials set for combination skin which includes:
Skin essentials for combination skin day cream w/ SPF 45
Skin essentials for combination skin toner
Skin essentials for combination skin night serum
Happy Skin essentials soap
This set looks gross on my photo because it got wet (lol) but it’s supposed to detoxify and balance the Skins PH levels as well as prevents cellular damage and formation of free radicals while brightening the skin. The ingredients that make up this pack include the antioxidants Seaweed which is good source of vitamin e, and Acai berry which has a wide range of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids good for the skin.
Phew! That was a lot of research up there. But I’m so happy to use products that are made of natural ingredients, and of course, that are proudly Pinoy made! If you’re a sucker for all things organic like me, you can find Happy Skin on Facebook
