Trying Out a Local Pressed Powder


I should say that T.LeClerc in Banane so far is the best face powder for me. But being the adventurous me and a cheapskate at that, I chanced upon this

Ever Bilena Pro Translucent Face Powder in Ivory Lite, when I was doing my grocery shopping the other day. I just thought it was just around $4 (give or take), and with my T. LeClerc compact getting more than halfway empty, I should really be looking for a replacement.  (a cheaper one as a mental note). If you would swing around so it goes… you will understand why.  It so looks like a local Clinique loose powder which is translucent as well.  I have been using Clinique for years until I used Le Clerc.  I couldn’t wait to get home to try this.  First application turned me off.  The scent is that of a strong cheap face powder (as expected).  Nothing of the pricey brands have that kind of scent.  Okay,  the first turn off can be negotiable.  I am actually willing to try it further if it does what it says it does.  Translucent finish, check.  I will let you know how it delivers.  

A Polished Canvass

This is basically what every woman wants. A clear, blemish free skin. Here is an alternative to the not so brave to go under the knife like myself. A non-invasive diamond peel right from your very own home.

The Polishing Peel by NuSkin will give you that smooth lift without the sting. It is an extract from pumpkin that is designed to lift out dead cells giving your face that bright and glowing peel. It banishes the dullness and leave skin smooth as silk. Ideally, this should be used three times a day. I used to but I personally have used this just once a week. It is gentle to the skin unlike the more popular facial scrubs. This is not a paid advertisement.

I know I would be maximizing the benefits if only I use it three times a week. But to be honest, my face feels revitalized, translucent every single time I use this. It can be pricey, though. But it would be worth the try, rather than going through invasive procedure, which I will not go through, if I can help it. As “kikay” as I think I am, I am not that brave yet and would still consider myself towards the more “conservative” league. Maybe when I hit midlife or something. But that would be another story. 🙂

T. LeClerc Has Got You Covered

Why would I even be surprised when the mother of all face powders turns out to be the best in the market? T. LeClerc history dates back to 1881. A pharmacist concocted the formulation that suited all kinds of complexion of women the world over.


This face powder really has you covered. I have mine in Yellow Banane. That’s as weird as it gets, the name that is. When you get your face covered – it’s texture is incredibly light and silky. The seamless matte finish is just to behold. This is really a biggie for “kikays” from our humid land. You will always get that amazing glow as it controls the oilies like no other face powder can. For that porcelain, flawless look it will be T. LeClerc for me and no other.
