The MAGIC of Blur (Revitalift Magic Blur by L’Oreal)


All the stress of driving, looking for directions, and finding a parking space yesterday in BGC was taken away by a relaxing 30-minute facial at Neo Day Spa with L’Oreal Paris Philippines.

I was very intrigued about the newest addition to the the number one anti-aging franchise Revitalift by L’Oréal Paris. It launches its first instant anti-aging skincare cream, “Magic Blur”. A critical step that follows regular cleansing, toning, and moisturizing, Magic Blur perfects every woman’s daily regimen for younger looking skin by instantly blurring away pores, dullness, and facial lines of early aging.

The name itself got me excited as I knew it would somehow be similar to that of a makeup primer…and I was correct!

I vlogged about this day on my YouTube Channel – will have the video embedded here as soon as it goes live!

The facial consisted of the following steps with, of course, products from the Revitalift line:

STEP 1. CLEANSE – The Revitalift Foam instantly removes makeup residue and thoroughly eliminates impurities. It has Glycerin that gently smooth roughness, for a visibly revived skin.


My experience: It was my first time using this product, and I must admit it stung my face a tiny bit. But it did go away after a few minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed its scent—very mabango!


STEP 2. TONE – Make your skin feel softer, smoother, freshened up and retightened with L’Oreal Anti-Aging + Firming Milky Toner. Powerful Dermalift conceived to help retighten skin and Pro-Retinol A, known to reduce wrinkles.


My experience: This toner felt really light as opposed to its ‘lotion-y’ look from the bottle. It’s actually very milky! Slight tingling sensation, but went away after a few minutes!


STEP THREE. MOISTURIZE – Moisturize face and neck in gentle, circular motion and intensely nourish and restore youthful appearance with the Revitalift Day Cream with SPF 23 PA+++. Dermalift and Pro-Retinol A stimulate your skin’s natural lifters and work on the eight facial lines for restored elasticity and firmness.


My experience: I love how this moisturizer ISN’T thick. It left my skin really plump—which is a sign that it was thoroughly moisturized!


STEP FOUR. PERFECT – Perfect your 4-Step Regimen with Revitalift  Magic Blur! Magically blur lines, pores, and imperfections in a flash! Opti-blur Technology, Pro-Retinol A, and Dermalift leave skin feeling and looking younger and velvety, INSTANTLY!




My experience: This has got to be my FAVORITE step. I am so in love with makeup primers as it does so many wonderful things to the skin and the makeup. And now the Revitalift Magic Blur made me fall in love since it has features that of a makeup primer + it has other skincare benefits! SKINCARE+MAKEUP in one = PERFECTION!


I really enjoyed the facial massage, it almost sent me to sleep! I tell you, therapists at Neo Day Spa have magic, massaging hands. I could get used to these kinds of facials EVERY DAY!


The Revitalift Magic Blur definitely delivers INSTANT results.

It magically blurs away facial lines in seconds. With a unique non-greasy, non-sticky and weightless cushiony texture, Magic Blur works like magic on the skin reducing facial lines visibility, pore visibility, and skin roughness in just a matter of seconds.

And here’s more good news!

…more than just temporarily erasing facial lines, Magic Blur also reduces appearance of lines and enlarged pores over time with regular use!

Products are exclusively imported and distributed by L’Oréal Philippines and exclusively available in L’Oréal Paris counters at select Watsons stores nationwide.

A Must-Have this Summer Season! (Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes)


This summer season, one thing you MUST definitely have in your bag is the Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes! (P140.00, Watsons)



I’ve been a user of Nivea products for the longest time, and this has got to be my favorite amongst the newest products they have!

Not only is this a makeup remover, it also is, primarily, a facial cleansing wipe!

If you watched our recent trip in Balesin Island, you’d know how DIRTY we got from all the gold cart rides around the island—dirt and grime all over the face, for sure!!! No need to panic, since the Nivea Gentle Cleansing Wipes got it all handled!

“The Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes – enriched with natural Almond Oil & Hydra IQ:

  • Gently cleanses, removing makeup and waterproof mascara
  • Leaves skin feeling hydrated and soft
  • The formula with Almond Oil is mild & nourishing and is suitable for dry and sensitive skin”


1 pack contains 25 wipes and I honestly only need 2 wipes to remove full makeup off my face.


What I love about this Nivea Cleansing Wipes?

  1. It thoroughly cleanses and refreshes your skin, giving you a fresh finish!
  2. It is really hydrating, but does not feel grimy/sticky on the skin. It leaves a squeaky clean feel!
  3. It smells pleasant!
  4. It removes makeup easily!
  5. It’s very convenient to use, bring it wherever you want to!
  6. It’s really affordable! Only P140.00 at Watsons


This will come in handy this SUMMER TIME—tag it along with you to the beach and effortlessly remove makeup at the end of a fun day/cleanse your skin from all the dirt and grime—no matter how tired you are!

Top 5 Beauty Essentials I Need (When Going Out of Town)

unnamed (1)

The worst thing that could probably happen when you’re going out of town is your bottle of makeup remover spilling/leaking everywhere in your bag. That leaves you with NOTHING to remove your makeup with (considering you did not bring a back up, most probably)

This is why I  would suggest you use makeup remover wipes, instead. They come in packs, and you get more than enough to clean your makeup off! The Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes is perfect for out of town trips (especially places where convenience stores are far away/lack variety of skincare products available) It comes with 25 wipes which is truly more than enough wipes you will need to remove a day’s worth of makeup. I usually use 1-2 wipes and I’m good to go!

Feeling lazy to wash your face? Nothing to worry about! The Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes will remove all traces of makeup—even waterproof mascara! Leaving you with a fresh feeling on the face, and allowing you to sleep right after without worrying waking up with a pimple.

It is suitable for dry and sensitive skin as it says on the pack, but I really think it’s also perfect for people with combo (ME!) oily skin!

Not only does it cleanse, it also tones and hydrates the skin. I love that it doesn’t have an oily residue, too! Alcohol free, so you don’t have to worry about it stinging your eyes or whatnot.

Never leave for  trip without the Nivea Facial Cleansing Wipes! Get yours now from Watsons for only P140.00 :)


I will never forget my red lipstick. You’ll never know when you’ll need it! Say, for example, an impromptu date night! Every girl needs a red lipstick—even if it’s all that she has on (and brows, of course), it’ll look perfect and made up!


ALL AROUND MOISTURIZER! I love the Nivea Crème because you can put it anywhere—your face, rough spots, skin…etc! It is what I go for when my skin gets dry because of the weather. You need this baby.


You need your eyebrow kit, girl!!! As I mentioned earlier, even if all you got was your brows and red lipstick on, you’d look perfect! Never forget this stuff, unless you are on a makeup fasting!


Eyelash curler! Even if you forget your mascara, just curling your lashes would totally make a difference with your look! Lash curlers open up your eyes and make them look prettier! I’ve always been a fan of curled lashes! (Say Eyelash Curler, P399, order from 09179870285)

Those are my TOP 5 Beauty Essentials for out of town trips!
