Team White! Smizingmica's first-ever OOTD

at 7:58 PM 9 comments
Hello Lovelies! I just started working last July 3, hence, the inactivity of this blog. But now I'm back with this quick fashion post :)

My family and relatives (dad's side) had a pictorial for the whole clan and each family were made to choose colors to be worn. Our family initially chose red, but it was already taken, so we went for white. Aaaand, this is what I wore:

V-neck shirt from Elements
Gypsy skirt from Kamiseta

Dreamcatcher necklace from bestfriend
Bangles from aunt

Sequined Wedge from Rialto

Belt and Bag from my gorgeous Ninang
Hope you guys liked my first-ever OOTD! :)
Any suggestions on how I can improve doing OOTDs?

Review: Pure Beauty Cleansing Water

at 3:37 PM 6 comments
Hello lovelies! As proud as I am of my new blog layout (of course, thanks to Steph whom I will never get tired of saying thank you to), I wanna share with you some photos of the day we worked on it.

Get ready to see how amazing and talented my friend is :)

And now, on to the review :)

Pure Beauty, now becoming a common brand among beauty enthusiasts like myself, introduced a makeup remover line composed of three variants: Cleansing Liquid (for normal to oily skin), Cleansing Water (for sensitive skin and all skin types), and Cleansing Oil (for dry to normal skin). For more info, check out their website:

My face is gearing towards the oily side, but is sensitive at the same time so I opted to try out the Cleansing Water.

Claims to: be enriched with a natural herbal complex to help gently cleanse and remove makeup and impurities from the face. The alcohol and dermatologically tested formula is designed for sensitive skin. It also contains natural moisturisers to provide a soothing effect and prevent skin dryness after use.

Price: Php150-200 but I got mine on sale for less than Php50!!

Weighs: 190ml

Comes in a nozzle-type container which makes it easier to spritz out. However, since this is the water variant, pressing the top too much may draw out excess product, leaving it dripping. I just catch it with the cotton pad, but sometimes there's too much product already, it's annoying.

Yep, it really is water

Applying it to my skin felt greasy though, despite its watery consistency, but nothing unbearable. It leaves no tace of makeup, and does not sting my skin. However, even if it said to avoid contact with eyes, I still tried to use it to remove my mascara. What happened? I got instant conjuctivitis (sore eyes :D).

It may not look as horrible in the photo, but trust me, it is. And it stung so bad I couldn't open my eye. I still do it though. Haha. I don't know if I just like how it hurts, or if I think I'm getting the hang of it and not sting and the pain lessens once you get used to it. I don't know. XD

I wash my face after with water and cleanser. No soreness (except for my eyes), nor allergic reactions. Also, I only use this when I apply heavy makeup, otherwise, I just do my usual routine and use baby oil for eye makeup.

Will I repurchase? Yes

Have you tried the other variants? How'd it go? :)
