January 2013 Beauty Products Hits and Misses

Hello, lovelies~ I usually do a monthly favorites beauty items, but this time I thought it would be more fun if I include a couple of items that disappoint me.


Those who aren't familiar with HITS, it's the things that I love and works for my skin. Always remember that people have different skin types and skin in general, so what works for me may not work on you and vice versa. 

Pantene Lively Clean Shampoo

As of late, this has been my go to shampoo as it is silicone-free. You can check out the full review right here. 

NYX Round Lipstick in Tea Rose

I like the color so much as it may be included as a nude color category, but gives a slight peachy pink color on my lips. This lipstick is the one I go to ever since I got it. It is slightly drying, though.

Face On Face Nourishing Blush On in Blooming Rose

One of the local brand that never ceased to amaze me with affordable prices and good quality. The blush is quite pigmented and stays on my cheeks for quite some time. The only down side to this blush is the color options. It only has two shades, pink and peachy orange.

Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer in Winter Candy Apple

I know that this is the packaging that came out in 2011, but I have lots of hand sanitizer that this one got left at the back of the drawer. I found this early January and started using it again. It smells like ripe apples mix with a hint of cinnamon.

LUX Body Wash in Wake Me Up

I love the scent of menthol in the morning when I shower. I was so excited when I found this in Jakarta because it wasn't there earlier in 2012. So, yeaaay! This body wash just gives me an instant mood boost in the morning. It is one the things that makes me enjoy my shower!


Being the opposite of hits, these are the things that (sadly) doesn't work for me. I've tried these for two weeks, but I can't seem to make them work for me and my skin/hair/body.

Moo Goo Shampoo

It doesn't lather up as nicely as I would want it too and it made my hair all tangled, both during the shower and after I dried it with a towel. Quite sad since I had high hopes for this shampoo.

SKIN79 Snail BB Cream

The shade is too light for my current skin tone. Also, it has a sticky finish on my face. Gonna keep trying to find ways to apply this BB cream on my face. Hopefully, it'll turn into a hit.

Maybelline Color Bloom

I like the fact that it changes color by the temperature, but it doesn't feel moisturizing for my lips. I can't stand dry lips. ^_^;;

Hada Labo Tamago Hada Face Wash

Yes, sadly, this item doesn't work for my face. I've used it for two weeks and four pimples showed up on the sides of my nose.

Pure Lips Bergamot

The scent is such a turn-off for me! I cannot stand it at all, unfortunately. Plus, it is moisturizing on my lips for a short hour, then after that it just disappear, leaving me with dry lips.

Those are the beauty products that I enjoy using this month, along with a few others that didn't work for my skin. What is/are your beauty faves this month? Let me know by leaving a comment below~

Until then, I'll see you later~
