It’s never too late to take care of yourself and feel and look gorgeous while doing so! Hello Gorgeous has opened shop at SM North EDSA making their naturally beautiful products even more accessible. From the packaging to the ingredients, these naturally handmade products are a new alternative to traditional cosmetics and body care.
The Hello Gorgeous shop can be found near Cinnabon on the 2nd floor. Though the shop is a bit tight there’s a sink and mirrors are available if you want to try the products. The pretty colors and mantras gave me a pick up and I’m sure will cheer others up as they shop.
I had to get my hands on a few of their products. Of course, this was a chance for Kianna and I to try new make up and skin care products. Since I went shopping during their launch I was able to take advantage of their opening day sale. I got some really great deals and to be honest I found some of the items to be less expensive than I thought they’d be.
Girl Powder ₱480.00
Got this Girl Powder for Kianna since she had run out at Php450. There are three types of powder in the prettiest colors. You just turn the dial to dispense and it turns to non-color powder when mixed together.
- Yellow Powder brightens and diminish redness.
- Lavender Powder brightens yellow tones.
- Green Powder diffuses redness.
Rainbow Dash Highlighter and Eyeshadow Compact (₱350.00)
Okay, this one’s for me. It was just too pretty not to get! I also got it on sale at Php280! I didn’t want to be bothered with applying eye shadow before. A palette sends me into a confused state to be honest because the choice of color and all that is too much pressure! They made it much easier for me because I can now just sweep my finger across and simply apply to my eyelids. I did a swipe through the middle and got the effect that you see below. Next time I’ll try to be more adventurous and experiment but for now I’m more than content using this compact. It’s also a highlighter that you can use for your cheeks. I’ll have to see if I have the guts to be that adventurous!
Faux Blush ₱280.00
One of my new favorites that I only got at Php250! It’s smooth application was the draw for me and the concept of it being similar to a pen was interesting as well. Just click the bottom like you would a pen to dispense the gel. Just don’t click to much! It’s a 2 in 1 Lip and Cheek Gel made from Natural Fruit Pigment. For the cheeks just apply small dots to the cheek then spread with fingers.
Kianna has asked for the Pink shade and I’m after the Coral one when I next visit.
Available shades: Red, Red Violet, Orange, Pink, Coral
Coffee Scrub ₱300.00
I had a hard time choosing which body scrub to get. I went for their bestseller though, the Coffee scrub which has exfoliating and anti-inflammatory properties. The draw for me was that it could reduce cellulite and improve blood circulation which I badly need! Being a work at home mom in front of the computer everyday I need things like this to help me.
Once you open it you can instantly smell the Organic Arabica Coffee and it also has Dead Sea Salt, Mineral Salt, Essential Oils, VCO, and Vitamin E.
Ideally this should be applied 2 to 3 times a week but with my schedule? Good luck! So I’m reserving this for weekends when I can lounge and relax.
Brightening Soap ₱150.00
I got an awesome bargain with these soaps as they were buy 1 take 1. I opted for brightening soaps since the teens are into that kind of thing.
It contains natural whitening elements that lightens skin so I feel safe that the teens are using this. I’m really wary when it comes to whitening soaps because there are some that just use harsh elements to achieve the effect but since Hello Gorgeous products are all natural I have no worries.
Honey Lip Scrub (₱150.00)
Another Buy 1 Take 1 item! Thanks to fellow blogger, Rowena of animetric.com I discovered the wonderful use of lip scrubs. I’m one of those people that constantly have chapped lips. I’ve often experienced wearing lipstick only to have it dry up and become chapped. Now I know the secret is to apply this lip scrub for a smoother lippie look.
I’ve been able to try it a couple of times and it does work!
A couple of other items I got were the Matte Foundation Pump in Fair (₱380.00) and Micellar Water (₱180.00). Both things I’ve never used but have wondered about.
There are so many more products to check out at their shop.
