How Much Do Himalaya Herbals Products Cost?

A lot of people are curious about Himalaya Herbals because it's very new to the market. Compared to brands like Pond's or those of L'Oréal that have been in the country for decades, Himalaya Herbals has just been in the country for a little over a year.

So this is just a PSA post to show you how much their products sell for.

Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette Review

I now realize that it's been a long time since I got into color makeup. I apologize if there have been too much skincare and base makeup reviews on this blog, but well, I'm making up for it with a new color makeup review! 

Say hello (again) to Maybelline's The Nudes! Yes I think you've already seen this coming because of my beauty news post and first look post about this. 

I'm not sure where I first saw this... I'm not sure if it's the internet or in a department store here, but I do remember thinking to myself that "Wow. I'm sure so many people will like this." And here I am to also talk about how much I like it.

The best and most affordable hand and body cream has finally come to me. Finally, Ariel Himalaya Herbals cream happened to me! And yes, if you're looking for a cream right now, be sure to put Himalaya Herbals' Nourishing Skin Cream on the top of your list.

Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash Review

In yet another post in Himalaya Herbals Appreciation month (which I totally made up by the way), today's review is about their Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash Review.

This dffers from the previous two facal washes I've reviewed because it's a different kind of formula. It may not be down right foamy, but the formula is creamier than the other facial washes in their roster. This is meant to be their more gentle cleanser for whiter and brighter skin, and it's a more moisturizing formula than their other products.

L'Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation Review

I've finally #FoundMyTrueMatch! I think you've seen my blog post about the True Match event recently, and the True Match issue they gave us, but now is my time to review the product. I am really excited to be talking to you guys about this because I am sure that there are shades for all Pinays out there.

Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream Review

Hooray for more day cream choices in life! 

I was really excited to try Himalaya Herbals' take on the very basic day cream because I'm very interested as to how the product will fare in the hot Philippine weather. As I've been discussing in my previous posts, Himalaya Herbals is an Indian brand which is why if there's a brand that understands the concerns of people who live in hot countries, it's them.

Beauty News: Maybelline White Superfresh Sale Ongoing!

Last January, I was one of the people who witnessed the launch of Maybelline White Superfresh, and you’ve seen me talk about the miracles it does already. And you know that it’s a gamechanger. The weather is so humid, and the stress we get from the traffic conditions in the metro is sooooo bad that we frequently have to retouch our. But with each touch-up comes thicker, cakier makeup. That’s why Maybelline White Superfresh is a game changer. Thousands of Filipinas love it!

Beauty News: Maybelline The Nudes Is Here!

Beauty news time! Remember those days when all the eyeshadow palettes were filled with crazy neon colors, akin to the 70’s? Or when you had to compile all the brown shades in all the funky eyeshadow palettes you got just to have a palette worth using everyday? Well, thank heavens it’s already 2015, and those days are over.

Maybelline New York is proud to unveil to Manila its own take on the neutral look. Make way for The Nudes palette – Maybelline’s first ever 12-shade powerhouse palette that brings all the best from the neutral spectrum to every Pinay’s fingertips (or brush tips, if I may). Dare to go nude for that bold attitude.

Artistry Inner Radiance Line Review

Need a product line to make your skin bright and glowing without making it pale? This is the right product line for you. 

I thank our friends for letting me try out Artistry's Ideal Radiance trial set. The trial set lasted me about three weeks or so. This set is, sadly, not for sale! I really wish that it were because it was a good way to let me see how the products worked without having to commit to the full sized products of the product line.

Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Daily Face Wash Review

In another episode of Himalaya Herbals appreciation month (no I just made that myself I don't know when their anniversary actually is hahahah), I'm gonna do a review of their Gentle Exfoliating Face Wash for you guys! 

As with the Neem Face Wash, this is also a very good wash in cleansing and getting rid of dirt. But this one has a boost because of its scrub component.

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash Review

Let us all rejoice because there are facial washes nowadays that please not only women but also men! 

I am really happy about Himalaya Herbals' Purifying Neem Facial wash because it's got the right balance for the Philippine climate. It's good at removing oil, purifying the skin, and keeping the skin clean and fresh.
