Get Pixy-fied: A Kawaii Experience
I was lucky I scored an invite from the 4th BDJ Box Soiree sponsored by BDJ Box and Pixy Philippines because I dared to post a selfie on Instagram with the hashtags #BDJBoxSoiree and #Pixified.
I also got the April BDJ Box which I wasn’t able to keep the photos, but you can backread on my Instagram account if you want. It was full of Pixy exclusive cosmetics in full sizes.
This was the first ever BDJ Box Soiree that I have attended, and I’m hoping to have another chance to score an invite to the upcoming events.
So the event was held at The Blackboard by Chef Michel, The Podium Mall, and everything was pink and kawaii. Although I was so tired to climb up to the 5th floor because the escalators were not functioning, I still made it to the top.
Make up expert Ms. Charm Suerte discussed and showed how to to cop the Tokyo-inspired look in simple and smoky eyes, using Pixy Cosmetics. I’m not really fond of using make ups, —foundation and lipsticks are enough,— but this workshop allowed me to explore something new in my life.
I’m really not into eye shadows but still, I already have an idea how to apply one! Haha. This workshop is really helpful, besides it’s free. I met new friends and I’m really thankful that I became a part of this event.
Here’s my look:

And the loot bag:
I can’t wait to attend the next BDJ Box Soiree! Looking forward. Hihi.
It’s been a while since I bought my domain name (shyieesolove.com) but it’s still not working on my blog I don’t know why. I wanted to start going back to blogging but this domain name really frustrates me. :(
Anyways, I will be posting some product reviews tomorrow and saving them on queue. I hope the domain name will start to work any moment now.
Make the most out of the moment you are in now. :)
Review: Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion
I’m a fan of whitening products though my skin is close to being light. Whatever it is that can make my skin fairer than what I have, be it moisturizer or age-defying creams, I would spend money just to take care of my skin, of course, only to those trusted brands in the market.
It’s been years since I used Vaseline products, and it’s good to try it again. The impression of “this-might-be-another-hopeless-case” on whitening products stopped when I tried on this product.
Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion is the newest member of Vaseline’s extensive line of products. It is an instant whitening lotion that allows for fairer and even-toned skin in just one application. Vaseline is able to ensure the effectiveness of their product not only because of the careful research, and testing that all Vaseline products go through, but also because Vaseline knows their consumers’ skin best. The main ingredients to the success of this product are Microreflectors that allow for instant fairer skin. Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion also has the renowned Vitamin B3 that give long term and healthy whitening and has triple sunscreens for protection against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Sample size I received: 100ml
I love the fragrance of this lotion. It smells like a sweet perfume. Aside from the smooth skin effect, I always get the feeling of moisturized skin especially when I apply it after shower or before going to bed. It also blends into my skin. I’m not sure if it will blend to darker skin tones since I have a semi-light and semi-medium skin tones.
The price is affordable and good for me
What I don’t like with this product is that, the instant fair effect is just visible for about an hour after application, then he color of my skin goes back to normal. It also becomes greasy especially when I commute. I don’t like the feeling of getting my hands and legs all sweaty because I put on a lotion.
However, I will still rate this lotion 4 out of five stars and will definitely grab another bottle once this one runs out.
Sampleroom.ph: Try Before You Buy
The first time I noticed someone on my Instagram feed posted about Sample Room, I got curious. What is this online shopping website that gives free items as samples? When I checked the website, I got amazed finding a lot of health and beauty products to choose from.
To give you a brief description, Sample Room is a sampling site that banks on the power of free product sampling. It is an online community that changes your beauty-shopping pattern; and an interactive community where your opinions matter and where all beauty lovers are valued. That is according to their website.
I like the idea and concept of the website “Try before you buy” not because it’s totally free,but because this allows consumers to testthe products and know if it’s effective, before actually buying full-sized items and get disappointed after.
So I registered to Sample room and got 100 points instantly. I was wondering how it works since it’s for free. Then upon discovering, Sample Room offers points that can be used to buy the available sample items. All for free! The only thing you have to pay is the shipping fee at minimal cost, depending on your location and I’m telling you, it’s all worth it! I paid for the shipping fee in the morning and it arrived the next morning.
I am extremely amazed by the legitimacy of the company and how hassle-free the transaction is.
Here’s the first loot I got from them:
I love the packaging, I also loved the samples I got. I would definitely have another transaction with them as soon as my points are refreshed!
