Summer is long over and blogging about a sunscreen seems untimely but since protecting the skin against the harmful rays of the sun should be done on a daily basis regardless of the season, I think this post is still ok. :D Today, I am talking about the last sunscreen I have tried, the Sunkiller Super Lasting Base. This product is from a Japanese company called Isehan. And since Japan is known for its great sun protection products, does this one live up to people’s, or at least to mine’s, expectations?

The baking bug is still on! We’ve been trying some recipes almost every weekend and though baking is tiring and can be expensive, I love the satisfaction I get each time something “edible” comes out of the oven. It is even more rewarding when picky eaters such as my nephews get to appreciate what I baked.

When you visit beauty forums frequently. you are more likely to discover all sorts of beauty products with corresponding reviews or comments from users. Some are great for budget-savvy like me while some are so high-end I just can’t stomach to buy although sometimes I am tempted to click the buy button. :D This St. Ives Collagen Elastin Moisturizer is one of the products I discovered thru such forum. Actually, before reading about the product, I sometimes see this when I’m in the toiletries section but never thought of buying since the tub is big and I’m not sure if it’ll work for me. But then, it’s been getting rave reviews so I got curious and finally cave in.
So how this moisturizer fares? Is this a good buy?
This moisturizer, with collagen elastin proteins, hydrates for visibly softer, smoother skin.

- Dermatologist Tested
Packaging and Appeal. St. Ives Collagen Elastin Moisturizer comes in a big white tub. There are two things I do not really like about its packaging. One, it is prone to contamination since you need to dip your finger into the tub to get the product. The hands, therefore, must be clean. But then, you do not touch your face with your unclean hands so this shouldn’t be a problem. Two, the tub is not sealed. Nivea Creme and Glysolid Cream are secured with a tin foil aside from the lid so the product remains unopened until someone buys it. But this one doesn’t have that. It isn’t even sealed from the outside.
Being the only girl in the family as a kid, my folks would usually let me wear dresses in various styles, length and color. They find joy in seeing me wear frilly clothes in soft pink, blue, white and other light colors. I remember having to beg them to buy me a pair of denim jeans when I was a bit older since all I had were dresses and skirts. I may have gotten what I wanted but still, dresses remain a staple. Amidst the girly stuff they got me acquainted to, what stuck the most are short dresses, those which hemlines fall just above the knee. Even until now, I’m still obsessed with short dresses, aptly called cocktail dresses in adult terms. :D
For every occasion that doesn’t call for long gowns or dresses, I rely on my ever favorite cocktail dresses for many reasons. One, I think a short dress/skirts it enhances the legs. Two, I can move easily. For me, the cocktail dress is the perfect fit when you intend to dance the night away or if you expect lots of moving around to mingle with guests. Third, you can “show a bit of skin yet remain decent” in it. Fourth, it gives my shoes equal exposure.

Sweep Me Off My Feet
My two favorite things - lace and chiffon. Dresses with chiffon sweep train are flowy yet comfortable. With it, I do not feel like my movement is limited. Perhaps I can even run and not trip at all. The appliques lace, on the other hand, adds a touch of elegance and sophistication. With these two elements for my dress, my mood to socialize and party is definitely on alert mode.
