BEAUTIFUL Moisturizer and Revitalizer + GIVEAWAY!

Hello Blogosphere! It's been a while. I'm not supposed to blog anymore, but when I got hooked to this new skin care system, I couldn't let it pass and I just have to share with you guys.

To begin with, I was a pretty active blogger. Let's say for years I was sent sent several make-up and skin care items from companies for me to try out, and I guess it took a toll on my skin. From December of last year up to March of this year was the worst phase of my facial skin EVER. Pimples and oil were all over the place, and no matter which product I try nothing seems to work! People started to notice and I was given unsolicited advice here and there (even from guys!) and it affected my self-esteem terribly.

And then last March I discovered Trusted Health Products and what may be the solution to this long-term agony.

Beautiful is made with 100% botanical extracts from live fruit and nuts. It comes in morning (moisturizer) and evening (revitalizer) variants to suit your skin's needs for different parts of the day. Each bottle of Beautiful contains only 6 natural ingredients, which are follows:

Moisturizer – almond, orange, lemon, avocado and olive.

Revitalizer – almond, orange, lemon, primrose and apricot.

In both products, the orange scent is the most dominant and it's soooo good! Almost like food - which it is, but for our skin.

Now, take out your current cleanser, see the back labels and what do you see?  Come on now. If triethanolamine sounds bad that's because it is. Would you really put those chemicals, alcohols and parabens on your face? Absolutely NOT. Sooner or later, those chemicals will take clog your pores and take a toll on your skin. I've already regretted it and ever since I met Beautiful I'm not willing to look back.

So let your skin breathe. Rid all of your chemically-infused products. It may seem hard at first – I didn't do it all at once! One by one, I disposed products from my previous skin care routine until it boiled down to just ONE PRODUCT – Beautiful

First product I stopped using was my moisturizer, and I used Beautiful as a substitute for that. Then when I ran out of my target spot treatment for my pimples, I didn't repurchase it. And then my toner. The last one I said goodbye to was my cleanser – which I was skeptical at first because I put on make-up everyday. So how do I go through without cleanser when I have makeup to remove at night? Here's what I do:

I use the “7 times” rule. Gently splash your face with water 7 times. Then, take a damp cloth and go through it all over your face. This will take more time than just using cleanser but it's worth it. Make sure you've removed everything before rinsing it again 7 times with water.

After that I only apply Beautiful and let it do all the work. 

2 drops of Beautiful, as you can see consistency is quite thick

Here's the 3-Step Complexion Perfection System I learned from Trusted Health Products:

Step 1. Apply

Your skin recognizes Beautiful as food and therefore will be hungry for it and may require more drops initially.

Place 2 – 3 drops on each cheek 1-2 times daily and gently spread over the entire face including neck and forehead with your middle finger in a circular motion. Do not rub in. (You will need more than 2-3 drops for the first few weeks.) Put the cap back on immediately after use to preserve potency. Extended exposure to air weakens the botanical oils'  effectiveness.  If there is any excess after 3 minutes, blot your face with a tissue or damp cloth. There shouldn't be any excess, so if this happens you may be using too much product.
When used as a make-up remover, place 1-2 drops on a Q-tip or cloth and wipe away make-up.

Step 2. Detox

Your skin is probably used to name-brand products made from creams, chemicals, and other toxic ingredients that give your skin results, but by shocking your skin into submission.

If you've used makeup or commercial skin care products for any length of tim, your skin is probably clogged and burdened with the build-up of excess oils and environmental junk that comes from the ingredients in these products. Beautiful takes about 30 days to detoxify your skin from these chemicals and ingredients so that your skin can thrive naturally. Results vary for each person.

What to expect during detoxification...

Within the first 30 days of using Beautiful, you may experience a brief blemish breakout. This typically lasts 1-2 days, possibly up to a week. The botanical oils in in Beautiful gently and naturally remove toxins and build up that have accumuated over time from the use of chemical-laden skincare products and cosmetics. These botanical ingredients also help remove the cause behind excessive oil prouduction. If a breakout does occur, this is actually a really good sign, as your skin will be ridding itself of toxins that have built up. It's important not to get discouraged during this brief detoxifying period, because once it ends, your skin will emerge with a more beautiful, young looking, radiant appearance.

Step 3. Thrive

While most people experience noticeable changes within a few days, even greater benefits are achieved in the first 3 months, and then with continued use after. Beautiful will take the place of anti-aging creams, cleansers, firming creams, exfoliators, moisturizers, day/night creams, make-up removers, body lotions and more.

Trusted Health Products has a good news to my readers - they are giving away a bottle of Beautiful  moisturizer to THREE of you! Yes, there will be 3 winners and it's open internationally!

GEO Honey Brown (Toric) from EYECANDYS

Lately, I got quite obsessed with natural circle lenses. Remember what I said about collecting different color circle lenses? Well, I take that back. I've ditched all my colored ones last year, and natural is what I'm aiming for this year. 

And here's my first review to spearhead many more natural-looking circle lenses I'll be having this year. EyeCandys gave me the opportunity to choose one pair of circle lenses from their website, and I grabbed the chance to pick the best one I could find, and it's the GEO Honey Brown (Toric)

GEO now holds Toric circle lenses which are made to order, and according to their website will take about 1 - 2 months of waiting time. However, I feel mine didn't take that long, I think I got the package in 1 month at the most.

GEO lenses are probably the most comfortable circle lenses I've owned. I've had GEO in the past and it never disappoints. Careful though, coz lots of shops carry fake GEOs, but at Eyecandys you can be assured you get only the real thing.

Yes, I got -2.5 power for both my eyes. It's always important to get prescription to protect your eyes. Of course, they also came with a lens case.

Look, it also carries a wear and care guide which has very cute illustrations. I thought I knew everything I should about circle lenses until I read this. Found out I was a noob! So you might wanna go over it too!


I cannot stress out more how important natural-looking eyes are for everyday. Circle lenses have a tendency to freak other people out, so make sure you pick the right color and diameter. Since my eyes are a natural brown, brown circle lenses are the one for me.

I also like that the diameter of this GEO Honey Brown (Toric) is only 14.00mm so it enlarges my eyes without making me look like a weirdo.

Here is an I.D. photo of me wearing GEO Honey Brown (Toric) One can hardly tell I'm wearing any circle lenses!

I just love it! It's comfortable, natural and pretty. It enhances but not overpower the natural look of my eyes.

EMPTIES: November 2013

Hello everyone! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I had an amazing month! It's my favorite season and my birth month - so many reasons to celebrate! And I'm not going to let this year pass without posting my last empties post. And when I say last, I mean I'm not ever going to do it again. Or maybe I will, but definitely not in the near future. You know when something starts to feel like an obligation, you start to shy away from it? I've been doing empties post all-year round and it came to a point where I just grew a little tired of doing it, which is wrong because blogging should relieve me of stress and not be a source of it. It's sad because I know that my empties posts are the most viewed entries in my blog, but when I think about it again, this way I could give room to several backlogs which I ought to have done ages ago.

Last November, most of my circle lenses reached their 1 year expiry. In addition, I also accidentally tore one of my circle lenses which I've had for only a couple of weeks. I feel so sorry about it because it was a very pretty one. It's the GEO Magic Brown Circle Lenses from Angel Contacts which I did a review of only days before I tore it apart.

I have been using the Etude House Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss for so long I'm so glad to finally  get rid of it. The cap broke off on the first month of buying it, so I had to endure leaking everytime I had to use it. Etude House packaging is hands down the cutest but to be honest I don't trust its quality.

The Mary Kay Eye Love It! Mascara served me very well. It's one of the best mascaras I've tried and I still don't get how it's not popular. Review here.

I don't have that many bumps on my back but this Celeteque Back Acne Spray got rid of what's in there. I recommend trying it if you have an acne-prone back area.

I got this Snoe Beso Balm in my December 2012 BDJ Box. I love how minty and cool it is and how it just glides on my lips. Amazingly enough, it freshens the breath too. So much better than Burt's Bees.

The Face Shop Supreme Cereal Brown Rice Mask is probably the best of the bunch of Face Shop masks haul I did a while back. It gave a sort of radiance the morning after, albeit temporary.

The Redskin Clear Nose Pack is sooo disappointing! Or maybe because it's long past expiry. I wasn't able to even make use of it. I couldn't separate the vinyl sheet. This is one of the stuff from a giveaway I won which contained a few expired products. Come on, bloggers! If you have expired products don't give them away! Toss them to the trash where they belong. Ugggh.

The Gluta-C Body Scrub is something I'm happy about. It smells really good and gives an almost instant glow. Thanks, Sample Room!

I'm sad Fairness and Flawless Collagen Elastin Cream finished quite fast. I'm loving all my Fairness and Flawless products so far.

This sample of Tony Moly Broccoly Sprout Cleansing Cream is also from my December 2012 BDJ Box. It reminded me of Pold's Cold Cream with a delish scent.

If you've been reading my previous empties post, you've probably seen this Qatar Airways and Hello Kitty Wet Wipes because I just love using them in removing make-up in the middle of the day.

The Celeteque Moisturizering Gel is one of the products that Unilab sent me along with the back acne spray and several others. Gel products are best for oily skin however I don't think it inhibited the growth of acne. It kept my skin away from oil but in terms of acne, it's not as good as its facial wash, spot corrector and back acne spray counterparts. 

I really enjoyed using the White Result Exfoliating Gel! It's mild and left my skin super fresh. I'm happy that it didn't break me out!

There's nothing special about the Dove Intense Repair Shampoo but I do love how the conditioner version of this smells. If ever I repurchase a Dove hair product, it's the conditioner, not shampoo.

That's all, folks! 'Til my next hit pan post in who-knows-when, haha! I'll try to post a Secret Santa unboxing this week! For the mean time, enjoy the rest of the holidays! Follow me on Instagram @nadinediamante
