Garnier, Matrix & Maybelline’s Fab, Fresh, Fun Summer Picnic

Garnier, Matrix & Maybelline's Fab, Fresh, Fun Summer Picnic

A few weeks ago, I had a wonderful time getting all primped and pampered (at long last[!]), thanks to Fab, Fresh, Fun Summer Picnic Event held at The Grove in Rockwell! 🙂

After so many months of taking a blogging hiatus and toiling in my day job, I’ve finally had the chance to relax and de-stress myself, starting off with painting my used-and-abused manos pink! Nail Spa‘s nail tech used Essie nail polish of what it seems to be of natural pink color (failed to get the exact color name) which looks very much neat and simple. 🙂

I’ve always hankered for a big change especially when it comes to my eternally unkempt locks. Finally, my not-so-tiara-worthy crowning glory had undergone some luscious hair treatment using Matrix Sensoria.Care products. The hair spa, coupled with soothing back massage, was my absolute favorite as it instantly softened and untangled my locks while removing the tension away from my back area.  I also enjoyed taking a whiff of my hair every now and then, all because of the conditioner’s yummy fruity scent that relaxed my senses. 😛

Archie of Maybelline once again obliged to do my makeup, giving me an effortless, makeup no-makeup look the way I like it! He simply put some Clear Smooth Face Powder on my face to help nix the extra shine, curled my lashes and applied Volum’ Express Magnum Mascara for that instant vavavoom touch, and painted my pucker with Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Bonbon Pink. I especially love the mascara as it gave my lashes an extra oomph in just a quick swipe!

My friend M whom I tagged along also tried getting a facial from Garnier. I don’t really bring someone along with me when it comes to such events. But being a woman on-the-go that she is, I believe my BFF deserves a breather like this! She told me that it was quite an experience she definitely enjoyed to bits. 🙂

I also got to meet L’Oreal peeps, fellow bloggers, editors from Queue Magazine and Manila Bulletin’s Sense&Style.

Review: Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll On

As promised, here’s my review on Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll On. 🙂

Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll On

I’ve always been curious on the raves I’ve been hearing from this product, so I gave Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll On a try.

Not that I’m already bugged with my dark undereyes, but it’s more of fretting whenever they “puff” out of nowhere. To be honest, I wasn’t really at all oblivious why it happens. 😛 I believe that “puffy eyes” usually happens when I’m stressed out pulling an all-nighter, and/or when I didn’t have enough sleep. So there, my unrested peepers react violently to the abuse, which usually shows the day after.

So, upon hearing the alleged “wonders” of this product, I immediately grab ahold of it and tried it myself for a week or two. Here’s what the product has to say:

– Immediate cooling effect to freshen up fatigue eye area
– In 14 days, skin is much brighter and radiant
– In 28 days, eye bags and dark circles reduced by 11-12% respectively.*

And yes, it seems like this eye product heed my prayers! I’ll let you know why.

Easy to Use & Takes away the puffiness instantly!

Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll On

Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll On is so easy to use, thanks to its ball point tip which obviates the need to dip your hand into the product. I felt the cooling, somewhat tingling sensation, as soon as applied. The puffiness around my eyes just disappeared instantly after seconds of application. It also made them less tensed and more relaxed, as the product nixes the heavy feeling mainly due to stress. That may be because of the Caffeine, which is its primary ingredient. This is why application can be very addictive!

More importantly, it is dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested.


I mean literally and figuratively. This magic wand comes in handy so you can stash it easily in your makeup kit. The price is also very reasonable, as compared to other eye products.

Didn’t Fade Dark Undereyes

Upon weeks of use, I didn’t notice any difference in the color of my undereye area. But, I guess no product works overnight! I hafta try it longer and see what happens.

On the other hand, I can’t attest if it minimizes fine lines around the eyes ‘coz I don’t have one [yet]. 😉

Price: Php 299/ around $ 6.40

*Evaluation on 50 women with dark circles and eye bags, all skin types.

Happy Holidays from Garnier!

As you notice, I haven’t done any updates for quite a while, since I deliberately set my hibernate mode on for the holidays. But, to start the New Year right, Garnier gave me this very generous beauty gift that will keep my skin “light and radiant” all year ’round! 🙂

Tada! Garnier Light Brightening Scrub Wash, Garnier Light Day Cream with SPF 15, Garnier Light Overnight Whitening Peeling Cream and Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-On

I used the scrub wash before, and I’ve been religiously using the Overnight Whitening Peeling Cream ever since. I’m not sure if I’m gonna opt for the day cream though, since my skin barely needs heavy creams especially during daytime (when my skin’s oiliness is at its peak 😛 ). On the other hand, I’ve been meaning to have my review on Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-On very soon. To clue you in:  so far, I’m really lovin’ it!

Have a wonderful 2010 everyone! More post to follow. 😉
