Me Factory Pig Collagen 3 Step Nose Pack

I don't usually incorporate nose packs into my skincare routine, but my colleague is an advocate of this particular skincare item. One day, she stared at my nose, and the next day she gave me this cute Me Factory Pig Collagen 3 Step Nose Pack which she got from Watsons. (Looked like I needed some help!) 😂
 

This is the third nose pack I've used in my life, but this one I really enjoyed doing since it's my first time to try a 3-step version of it. Hihi. 🐽 The first one I've tried was Tony Moly Egg Pore Nose Pack and the second was Cathy Doll White Heads Cleansing Black Clay Mask, which is not technically just a nose pack.

Before

I can see small dots all over my nose but I think I have more whiteheads than blackheads. Also, I'm not sure if they're blackheads or just huge pores. The only way to find out is to use this product!

Step 01: Pore Heating Sheet (15-20 minutes)


After washing your face, stick the sheet on your nose. Remove it after 15-20 minutes. Wipe out the melted wastes gently.

The material and feel of the serum in this packet resembled a regular sheet mask. There was no strong/detectable fragrance the entire time. I thought that they were just pulling my leg with regards to the "heating" claim, but my nose felt warm minutes after I used this. It helped open up my pores, so the gunk could come out easier on the next step.

Step 02: Blackhead Clear Sheet (10-15 minutes)


Apply enough water on the nose, then remove the clear film with dry hands. Attach the white sheet and wait for 10-15 minutes until the sheet is completely dry. Remove the dry sheet slowly from the edge.


Ahhh my favorite! Since my nose was prepped in Step 01, it was refreshingly not that painful to pull this away from my skin. It's either I have really high pain tolerance, or this one's the least painful among the 3 nose packs I've used before. The result was grossly satisfying. EWW! 🙈 Goodbye, blackheads and whiteheads! This nose pack is amazing!!! I love it already.

Step 03: Pore Tightening Sheet (5-10 minutes)


Attach the final sheet on your nose and leave it for 5-10 minutes. Tap the remaining essence to let it absorb into the skin.
 
After! 👃
 
My nose looks and feels so smooth!!! This Pig Collagen Nose Pack from Me Factory is legit. I still had a few stubborn whiteheads left, but it was able to take out a lot, I didn't even know I had that many. Ugh 😵 Now I'm tempted to use it where my face feels rough, but I'm not sure if I can really do that. I will definitely repurchase! 👍

Price: approximately P150-P200 (not sure of the exact price)
Available at Watsons
Also available at ph.althea.kr for only P80! 🐽

Are you also fond of nose packs? Which one can you recommend? 💝

Love,
Helen

SilkyGirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream

Stay MATTELY in love with SilkyGirl's new Matte Junkie Lip Creams! 💋

My previous SilkyGirl review was about the Matte Fever Lipcolor Balm, and now we have their liquid lipsticks! Most, if not all, beauty brands have their own version of liquid lipsticks nowadays, and I'm glad SilkyGirl came out with theirs as well. Knowing the brand, it's bound to be wearable and affordable.


This kissproof and transfer resistant lipcolor applies like a liquid lipstick that dries to a matte finish. It stays on your lips through day and night activities requiring minimal touch-ups. Available in 5 rich and highly pigmented shades; 01 Retro, 02 Glamour, 03 Rebel, 04 Vintage and 05 Vixen. Introducing 4 new shades; 06 Darling, 07 Dolly, 08 Artsy and 09 Rouge to complete your matte looks!

  • Lightweight
  • Fragrance-free
  • Carmine-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Not tested on animals


I have with me the first 5 shades that was released, and I'm not sure if we already have the 4 new shades here in the Philippines. I love that it's a mix of nude and vivid shades! The packaging is really simple and straightforward. Each tube contains 5.8ml worth of product, and I like how lightweight and slim each tube is - no unnecessary packaging "illusions" or bulk to make it seem to have more product in it.


Also, you can see the ingredients and manufacturing date on the plastic shrink wrap. (I'm taking note of the dates via this blog post, since I threw the wrappers away after opening. 😉) Based on the ingredients, these lippies contains evening primrose oil, shea butter extract, and argan oil. 👍


It comes with a regular doe foot applicator.

Swatches:
 
01 Retro, 02 Glamour, 03 Rebel, 04 Vintage, 05 Vixen

01 Retro

02 Glamour

03 Rebel

04 Vintage

05 Vixen

SilkyGirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream goes on initially shiny but dries down to a completely matte finish in seconds. Once it sets, it's totally budge-proof - no transferring to cups, ever. I like how it doesn't enhance my lip lines unlike other matte liquid lipsticks I've tried. On my arm, the formula goes on smoothly, but it's quite tricky to get it to spread evenly on my lips. The formula is a bit on the watery side, and while it's pigmented enough, the application can get a bit streaky so you'd have to act fast. (I had a hard time with shade 02 Glamour, but the rest were easier to work with.)

My favorites from this range are 04 Vintage and 01 Retro. These two shades almost look similar on the tube, but 01 Retro is orange-brown, and 04 Vintage is pink-brown (which makes it the perfect everyday shade). Both shades are very flattering on my pale skin! 😍

Up next are the two bright shades: 05 Vixen has a unique red-orange shade that goes on nicely against my pale skin. I'm liking the contrast, but I would have loved it more if it had a blue base. Yellow-based lipsticks make my teeth look more yellow than it already is. 03 Rebel should be named 03 Barbie instead. It's a bright bubblegum pink shade, and it's also a keeper.

I didn't like shade 02 Glamour. It's a cutesy nude pink on the tube, but peachy when worn. It has bright peachy tones, but it still managed to look pale on my lips. It could work for other skin tones though.

SilkyGirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream is indeed long-lasting, and it will only come off with an oil-based makeup remover. It's nice to not have to retouch often. 😗

05 Vixen, 04 Vintage, 03 Rebel, 02 Glamour, 01 Retro
Loving the contrast of 05 Vixen against my skin 💋

Price: P299 -> P249
Available at Landmark, Cash & Carry, and selected Robinsons Department Stores (Galleria, Metroeast, Tutuban, and Cebu)
