How I Evened Out My Weird Tan Line (SNOW SKIN WHITENING LOTION)

Hi guys!
If you watch my vlogs, you'd know how I developed a weird tan line from a beach trip about a month ago. I didn't think it would bother me that much, but it did--especially when I had to go out and wear, say for example, an off shoulder top/low neckline top.
I knew I needed to even out my skin tone, because it wasn't flattering at all.

I've always stayed away from whitening products, but when this happened, I found myself giving them a try. You guys know how companies send over stuff for reviewing, so then I gave this brand a try-- SNOW SKIN.
They sent over (2) products and the main one I tested out for my uneven skin tone is the Snow Skin Whitening Lotion. PHP799.00

  • First impression: it smells so good! 
  • Lotion feels light on the skin and not sticky at all
  • A little goes a long way - I use about 2 pumps each time on my chest area
  • Unlike other expensive skin whitening creams and lotions​, only​ Snow has 7 Active ingredients that are all Clinically Proven to Whiten Skin that's also effective in Anti Ageing
  1. IBRTCLC (Tomato Colorless Carotenoids
  2. IBR-Snowflake
  3. 7 Plant Extracts from the Swiss Alps
  4. Bearberry Extract
  5. Alpha Arbutin
  6. Beta Glucan
  7. Phenylethyl Resorcinol
And according to them, the:
Snow Whitening Cream and Lotion contains ​a ​High % of concentration of all these​ active​ ingredients. This is crucial because manufacturers only use a very small % of  Whitening Actives​.​ ​Usually ​they only ​use ​one​ main​ expensive active then they mixed it with cheaper actives like papaine or Kojic Acid. Most manufacturers only use 0.01% of Alpha Arbutin to gain higher profit margins. But because Snow Skin Whitening aims to provide quick and effective results, they use 2% which is the recommended % for faster whitening effect.
I tried using the lotion, and believe me not, in about only 8 days, my uneven tan LIGHTENED and now you can barely see it!

It's a bonggang product for me, and I can say that it worked on me!
It also comes in a CREAM form (Snow Skin Whitening Cream - Php 1,499.00) that you can use on your face for dark spots, old acne marks, uneven skin tone...etc. I haven't tried it on my face just yet, but will let you guys know how it works!

Don't forget to watch my video on this:

Enjoy watching! :)

I Was Part of the Youtube Panel + UPDATES

Hi everyone! I've been in bed for the past 4 days nursing a really bad flu. I am feeling a lot better but that was one of the worst--the headaches and joint pain were unbelievable. Kalurks! But I am out of bed now and doing work little by little. Hence a new post for you guys! 

YOUTUBE DAY happened last March 1! And I am extremely honored to be part of the panel who spoke in front of the country's top ad agencies alongside Erwan Heussaff and Jako de Leon. It was really fun doing the panel! I am definitely excited with the thought of having more and more brands work with YouTubers like myself who are 100% dedicated and passionate with creating content online. 5 years ago, I would've never imagined being part of a YouTube panel--ever. My deepest thanks to Google PH for the opportunity! 

Watch the vlog here if you haven't seen it yet:

The event was held at Shooting Gallery Studios in Makati. Here I am inside the cozy dressing room! Bongga the lights, and of course, I had to take a selfie! Camera I am using is the CANON G7X from Lazada Philippines.

Thanking God for giving me a job I love so much. Never stop chasing your dreams!
