How the Summer Heat Burned my Pocket

It’s summer! And it’s pretty much obvious here in the Philippines because of the tremendous heat. Better load up on water if you don’t want to dehydrate yourself.
Since summer is here, it’s time for short clothes. I am pretty much reinventing myself, trying stuffs I’ve never tried.
So I bought myself board shorts! I love these things. Really. I think it would come really good this summer.
I am very much a loiter in this mall near our office. I go there everyday. I was at SM Hypermarket last Monday and I was able to see these cute boardshorts for the price of 150Php each! It’s 50 pesos cheaper than the ones in Surplus Shop. They just took my heart away. I can even see them in my sleep. So, the next day, using my Sodexo, I decided to buy a couple of boardshorts and buy a pair of shoes.
Plans were suddenly messed up because my friend kept throwing me all these cute designs and I can literally cry there. It’s so hard to be poor. :(
Anyway, I ended up buying these. :)

Product Test: Eskinol

Since I am pretty much frustrated with all these pimple marks,I've been trying several products lately. I do believe that Pond's is not doing the job anymore. Anyway. I bought these. These are local products from the Philippines. I used to think that they are really strong for the skin and because of it's cheap price, I've come to believe that they are ineffective. But I guess they are really not. 

 ESKINOL Pimple Fighting Facial Scrub and Eskinol Spot-less White Facial Deep Cleanser.

The sachet is just for P5.00. At first I really thought it was effective. I think I used it for a week but then a pimple started showing up. I know it's kind of shallow of me to judge the product based on that pimple showing. It's not that bad though. It was able to dry up my pimple that was on my nose last week.

I keep reading stuff about Calamansi and I think this product is a bit effective. It was able to let the pimple marks on my face fade. Or maybe it's just in my head. But I do like this product, I really felt like my face is clean after using this. I do apply this on my elbows,too. I can't quite put my full two cents in since I just started using the product but I'll eventually get good results. I'd still buy this next time.
