Introducing Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub to my weekly routine

It has been more than a year since Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub was first introduced to my bath routine. I love that the makers have come up with its counterpart specially formulated for the face.

I posted the above photo on Instagram (follow me! @jenaspacio) a couple of weeks back. 🙂

Asian Secrets Lulur scrubs are inspired by a most luxurious ritual used by Indonesian royalty called Lulur, originally intended for the bride-to-be to beautify, smoothen, and whiten her skin before her wedding day. Lulur originated from the royal palaces of Java, Indonesia and products inspired by this traditional treatment are still used by Indonesian women, and in specialty spas today.

Garnier Face Powder Review

Get fairness that doesn’t shine, this is Garnier face powder’s tag line.  I got mine in 01-Ivory tone.

After the reviews that I have read about Garnier’s anti-eye bags roll on, I got curious about how well their face powder would deliver.  When I saw how cheap it was, this one time I was in the mall in search of some pretty discount rugs (swinging by a mall’s beauty section is almost always a given :-P), I couldn’t resist wanting to try it out.  By that time, my ever favorite T.LeClerc in Yellow Banane was officially going to say goodbye in a few touch ups.  I thought it would not hurt to try a cheaper brand that has received a few good reviews, right?  Plus, T.LeClerc is only available in Rustan’s and I was totally in the wrong mall to go look for one. I think I like Garnier’s face powder more than Palladio’s Natural Rice Powder, which is a little more expensive than the former.
