Product Review: Nescafe Mocha Bottle Shaker

Nescafe Mocha Bottle Shaker

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I haven’t posted a blog entry for product reviews. Right now, I’ll be writing a product review about Nescafe Mocha Bottle Shaker. We’ve seen this a lot of times in TV ads or commercials with a girl handing out bottle shakers to guests or beach goers.

So, out of curiosity, I also bought one for my own that I could carry outside with me wherever I go or just to use at home. Being a coffee lover, I make sure that I have at least a cup or glass of iced coffee.

Cautions:
* Fill coffee only up to the brim of the lower bottle.
* Be sure that the upper bottle is returned properly to the bottle to avoid leak.
* This product is not intended to be spill-proof and is not guaranteed against minor leakage.
* This item is not a toy. Handle with care.
* Breakage and cracks may appear if used improperly. Stop use immediately when crack or breakage is found.
* Item is non-microwaveable.
* Do not expose to open flames or high temperature.
* Do not put boiling water.
* Please consume prepared coffee immediately.

Cleaning With Instruction:
* Wash thoroughly with soap and water before and after each use.
* Do not use a harsh chemical or abrasive cleaner when washing.
* This is NOT dishwasher safe.
* Keep in safe, dry and clean place.

You can find this instruction written in a small paper being placed in the bottle shaker itself the first time you open it. Nescafe Mocha Bottle Shaker is available in groceries or you may also order them through online at a price of Php 70.80 along with 12 sachets of Nescafe Mocha (6 sachets of Coco Mocha and 6 sachets of Berry Mocha).

Shake and Share!

Flawless Tea Tree Soap
Flawless Tea Tree Soap (Php 140)

Hi, Bellas! What’s up? So, here’s my product review for Tea Tree Soap which I bought from Flawless through their online shop. One of the reasons why I ordered this product is that it’s one of the soap that the in-house doctor recommended for me with regards to my skin concern which is acne.

For the first part, I’d be writing the product description, direction for use and ingredients.

Flawless Tea Tree Soap (Product Description)
Flawless Tea Tree Soap (Product Description)

 

Product Description: Flawless Tea Tree Soap contains Tea Tree extract, a substance which is scientifically proven to be effective in controlling symptoms of acne. This product is mostly recommended for individuals with oily and acne-prone skin.

This soap is light blue or bluish green in color and somewhat has a scent of menthol when you use it.

Second part will be about what I like and dislike about the product, its verdict (will I buy it again?) and my rating.

What I Like: Its menthol scent. I love its mild effect on my face as well even though I’m trying this for the first time.

What I Don’t Like: Not much that I can think of except that it’s a bit pricey or costly. (Php 140/90 gram)

Verdict: This product is cool to use. Tea Tree Soap is more recommended for those with oily skin and acne problems. This is good for morning and evening use and I will definitely be using this as my daily regimen.

Will I Buy This Again? Yes. This is one product that I need for my skin concerns, regardless of its price.

Product Review: Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream

Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream (Php 340)
Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream (Php 340)

Hi there, Bellas! So, I’m writing a review on another product that I bought from Flawless which is the Skin White Therapy Cream. This product is more suitable or recommended for evening use and for those who have skin concerns like acne and hyper-pigmentation and it helps exfoliate your dead skin cells.

As a Bella whose skin concern is acne, I decided to purchase another product for them that’s suitable for my skin problems which is this product, aside from the SAS Soap, Tea Tree Soap, Skin Protect Gel and other Flawless products I’ve previously purchased.

Using my Flawless Pink Peso Voucher, I was able to get a discounted price of Php 100 so I paid Php 530 instead of its regular price.

So, I’ll be writing first about the product description, ingredients, direction for use , some precautions before using this product and so on.

Product Description: Skin White Therapy Cream is a lightening moisturizer which targets pigmentations from acnes and other skin blemishes. This product helps exfoliate skin which results to a brighter and more even skin tone.

IMG_9580.JPG

Ingredients: Water, Hydroxethyl Acrylate, Sodium Acryloydmethyl Taurate Copolymer & Squalene & Polysorbate 60 Psidium Guajava Extract , Propylene Glycol , Emulsifying Wax , Cethyl Alcohol, etc.

Directions For Use: Apply this product evenly over the entire face. This product is recommended for evening use.

Pre-cautions: Use sun-block cream/gel before the sun exposure. This product is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women.

Storage: Store this product at room temperatures not exceeding 25◦C.

Second part of my discussion for this product will be what I like and dislike about this product, as well as my verdict or rating.

What I Like:  It’s whitish texture and the smooth feeling or texture of this cream.

What I Dislike: It’s a bit too pricey for a 15 gram canister of this cream.

Verdict : This Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream may be useful for evening use , only that it’s a bit too pricey. With regards to the possibility of buying this product again depends on whether I have enough budget.

Rating: 3/5

Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream is manufactured by Refinette Cosmetic Industry and exclusively distributed by Forever Flawless Face and Body Center, Inc.

That’s all for my product review on Skin White Therapy Cream, Bellas. Stay tuned for more.
