IT Candle Bee | Lifestyle Home Decor

Cebu City, Philippines

The story behind our collaboration with IT Candle Bee is that it started when I was shopping at Pop District Bazaar. I was browsing on Pop District's IG profile and found out that there's a store selling scented candles so I decided to drop by and check them out. I fell in love when I first saw it, especially the peach one with a flower in the middle.

Pretty Angel Shoppe Hair Care Products | Review

"Invest in your hair, it is the crown that you never take off."
With my color-treated hair, I often touch it up when my natural roots starts showing up and it is really hard to maintain it healthy without damaging it. I tested so many hair care products but there's one product that made my hair so straight and smooth. I was so desperate and worried about my hair because it was really damaged due to the hair color products that I've used. The product which I'm talking about is "Keratin Hair Reconstructor", a do-it-yourself Brazilian Blow out that makes hair healthier and shinier.



This is ideal for rebonded, color treated hair, dry and damaged hair. It is formulated with keratin extracts that is proven to repair dry, rebonded, damaged hair, color-treated hair and other thermal styling tools

Baremnl Warm Sugar Vanilla Soy Candle and Linen Spray | Review

Nothing is more memorable than a smell of the scented candle. It invites cozy memories and transforms your room into a welcoming retreat.


I received a scented candle and linen spray from Baremnl Essentials. Their candles are made from natural soy candle which is good and the powder fresh & linen spray smelled heavenly.

I got the Warm Sugar Vanilla Natural Candle, it made my entire room smell like the fragrance of vanilla orchid flowers. When I first smelled the warm vanilla candle it reminded me of something that I just couldn't remember. Haha! 


I absolutely love the Warm Sugar Vanilla! I can certainly tell it is vanilla while burning, unlike other vanilla scented candles I've tried.


The Powder Fresh and Linen Spray helped me a lot especially having so many pets in my room. I tried spraying my pillows and the scent reminds me of Avon Sweet Honesty perfume. It helps me relax
and get a good night sleep. It lasts long too! Love it so much. ❤️️

I'm very pleased and thankful with Baremnl for sending these to me. Also, Baremnl is very affordable as you can see in the price list below.

Rucys Vanity Product Review

I love watching korean dramas as well as korean beauty products! I always wondered why koreans have flawless skin and makes me think what they're using. Thankfully, Rucys Vanity sent me their products to test out and also to share it with you. ❤️️



"Rucys Vanity is a 100% Korean cosmetics brand offering high quality cosmetics in a more reasonable price to create a beautiful life. They initially targets budget-conscious Filipino consumers, which value both affordability and quality of their skincare and cosmetic products."

They sent me foam cleansing, lip and cheek red, liquid eyeliner and mascara. I know some of the high end korean products are expensive and I'm quite surprised that Rucys products are quite affordable.

Lets go through to my beauty goodies! ❤️️

-----

Green Tea Foam Cleansing


When I first tried this foam cleansing, I thought this was lotion! I didn't read the label and just quickly tried the product. *silly me*

  

Product Claims:

Removes make-up, dirt, impurities and excess oil. Leaves skin perfectly clean with deep cleansing action. Contains collagen with Aloe moisturizing and soothing effect. Deep cleansing action to leave skin refreshed & purified. It contains collagen with aloe and deep cleansing action.

My thoughts for this Green Tea Foam Cleansing is it does the job of removing my make up and its very foamy even if i pump a small amount. After washing my face, i rubbed the dead skin all over my face and felt more cleaner. Thumbs up! ❤️️

Price: Php 130.00

I rate 5 star for Aloe Foam Cleansing


-----

Lip and Cheek Red


I'm not really a fan of sticky cheeks and lip stains because i have oily skin. It makes my face more stickier and feels uncomfortable.


Product Claims:

This dual-purpose liquid stain gives lips and cheeks a hint of natural-looking colour. Can be used under gloss for added intensity. It contains green tea and collagen. Dermatology tested.

My thoughts for this lip and cheek red tint is it's moisturizing but sticky at the same time. It has a cherry smell onto it. Overall, this product is very affordable and great for dry and chapped lips.

Price: Php 80.00

I rate 3 star for Lip and Cheek Red


-----

Gleamy Lavish Waterproof Mascara


I was excited seeing this product in the paper bag goodie because i never had a mascara in ages. I really like that this is a waterproof and sweat resistant.




Product Claims:

Water-proof mascara that natural coats each lash making it appear longer and volumized. Protects lashes and lock in moisture.

My thoughts for this mascara is it really lengthens my eyelashes! It exceeded my expectations because it does not smudge and clump and it coats very well to my eyelashes. Worth a buy and affordable! ❤️️

Price: Php 180.00

I rate 5 star for Gleamy Lavish Waterproof Mascara
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

-----

Rucys Vanity Liquid Eyeliner


The applicator of this eyeliner is thin which is good but the handle is too long which is hard for me to hold while doing my eyeliner.



Product Claims:

Water-proof eyeliner with deep black pigmentation that last whole day without smudging and long lasting.

My thoughts for this Rucys Liquid Eyeliner is its great for everyday use and affordable. It would be more convenient if they shortened the handle of this eyeliner. ❤️️

Price: Php 160.00

I rate 4 star for Rucys Vanity Liquid Eyeliner
⭐⭐⭐⭐

-----

Two Way Cake SPF 35 PA ++ 12g


I like how girly the packaging is and the transparent separator for the face puff.



Product Claims:

Combines the goodness of foundation and powder in one with added protection from UV rays with whitening effect. Whitening, Stay matte all day, Non-cakey, UV Protection and Non-clogging.

My thoughts for this Two Way Cake is it makes my face radiant and protects my face from UV rays because it has SPF 35. I wish they sent me the dark beige shade because natural beige is lighter of my skin tone. Two Way Cake is available in Natural Beige and Dark Beige.

Price: Php 160.00

I rate 4 star for Two Way Cake
⭐⭐⭐⭐

My trip to Camp Sawi

Bantayan Island, Philippines

"Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be." - Gossip Girl


Giving yourself a break is the very thing you need. A break from a busy tiring work, problem or even a heartbreak. Today's blog post is the place where you can pause all the stress in your life. Give yourself a break girl. ❤️️🌊

Kota Beach is a well-known resort in Bantayan Island where the movie of Camp Sawi film was produced. Camp Sawi movie was focused of how women should deal with moving on from a heartbreak. Probably your go-to destination this year if you want to enjoy the relaxing view of the resort day and night. ☀️️✨

If you have questions regarding the places that you might want to go, the staff and tricycle drivers will assist you. You can rent bicycles for 150.00 pesos for the whole day but you can bargain for 120.00 pesos. You can get over in the Ogtong Cave Resort, anywhere in Bantayan as long as you return the bike safely at the resort. 😉

American Breakfast worth 188.00 pesos

 slice bread | sunny side up egg | juice | coffee | banana | bacon | jam & butter | tomato & cucumber

The Kadlawon Restobar in Kota Beach Resort has plenty choices of food. I only ate breakfast in the restaurant because i wanted to try their servings and for dinner, i went outside of the resort because it's more cheaper.

-----

I also went to Ogtong Cave Resort with my friends and the place is magnificent. The entrance fee is 100.00 pesos inclusive of taking a dip in the pool and in the cave also. You have to wear swimming attire or else the staff of the resort wont let you swim in the pool.





-----

How to get here in Kota Beach Resort

1. Think of the best time that you want to go in Bantayan Island. We choose the 3 am departure going to Hagnaya Port from the North Bus Terminal in Cebu City. Three hours long journey going to Hagnaya Port. We chose an air-con bus which cost 200.00 pesos.

Take note: You have to go early in North Bus Terminal to reserve a seat. Maybe three hours early. You will be prioritized if they have your name on the list.

2. When we arrived at the Hagnaya Port, we took the Super Shuttle Ferry which cost 170.00 Pesos and terminal fee 10.00 pesos. It will be a one hour and thirty-minutes journey going to Bantayan Island.

3. After we arrived in the Bantayan Port, we didn't receive a text message from Kota Beach Resort so we took a tricycle going there, 20 pesos fare each person. Btw, they have a free transport van going to the resort but if you didn't catch the van they will refund you 20.00 pesos each and it will be deducted on your food in the resort.

4. The check-in time is 2 pm. We waited long hours because we arrived early. So take the time to indulged the view and take some good pictures.

Take Note: You can sit in the lobby while waiting and you can leave your things too.
