Quick Outfit Update

Hey! :) It's me again. Well, today I'm just updating the outfits I used this week. Very simple coordinates cause I've been pretty busy with my studies to come up with something great. Sorry for that.

The first one is just a butterflies and ribbons pink t-shirt (Estilos), black leggings and oxfords shoes. And the thing in my head is my bunny-ear headband (Do It). I love those, if I could have the money I would buy tons of those lol 

The second one is my sister's sweater BOY (she got it from E-bay), some plain jeans, oxfords and also a headband (it used to be my mom's, not anymore lol). 

The third one is a blue flower corset, jeans and oxfords. I use my oxfords most of the time. I got no so many more shoes OTL

The fourth one is actually my favorite. It's a blue flower bustier I bought few months ago, jeans with brown belt (The City Mode), pumps (Marquis) and headband (Do it). I'm feeling more comfortable using this bustier since I could reduce my belly with gym lol

The fifth one is my black star-dotted blouse (Sybilla), with a belt (The City Mode) around my waist, jeans and oxfords.

And the last one I used it on a cold day. A sweater, belt, leggings and oxfords. Most offbrand. I hardly have something of a particular brand. I actually only buy from stores I find randomly... That's why I have no savings OTL.

Anyway, these days' weather have been pretty annoying. I really don't know what to where cause it's cool in the morning, then it becomes sunny and really hot at midday, then freaking cold at night. And I'm out the whole day, so sometimes I just have no option but to carry some jacket -_- Also, most of the pictures were taken at night, so my hair was pretty messy and I was so tired so I censored my face with a skull lol

Well, that's it for this week. I would lie if I say I would update in the week. I got so many tests this week so I won't be able to update until weekend. So see you until next Sunday :)

Review: Pond's Clarant B3

Hi! Here it's me again with another beauty review. This time I'm reviewing Pond's Clarant B3. I'm going to tell you about my long expierence with this cream since this is the second time I buy this. Well, let's start with the statements of this cream:

- Dermatologicaly tested. Hipoallergenic.

- Whitens in six weeks. With UV filter.

- Instruccions: Use daily in face, neck and body parts exposed to the sun (legs, arms, hands). Use it twice a day for better results.

- Ingredients: Water, Niacinamide, Stearic Acid, isopropyl Myristate, Mineral Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Glycerin, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Cetyl Alcohol, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Dimethicone, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Sodium PCA, Glutamic Acid, Propylparaben, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate.

My personal experience: 

The first time I bought this cream was last year, early January. I bought it because I wanted to whiten some dark spots in my face and also because I wanted to even my body skin color (my arms were too tanned in comparison with my face). So I bought this cream for around $8 in the closest supermarket. Very cheap for the whole content (100g). So I tried it out, and in order to succeed in my whitening proccess, I also used sunshade and sunblock during the whole summer. And the results were amazing! I almost recovered my natural skin color. I used this cream only in arms and face because I used jeans or leggings during summer (in order to avoid using creams in my legs too, lol).

But, this cream didn't whiten my dark spot. Instead, every new pimple I got, it left a spot. AGH! It never happened that way, even if I had touched them, they used to vanished; but after using this cream my pimples started to leave spots all over my face. So, I never used it in my face again. Plus, it doesn't work as a primer either (like it says). It makes my face more oily and makes my makeup last shorter. I have oily skin by the way.

Well, after I had a good experience with this product, my sister bought the cream, too. And it did work good on her, too. Just that she didn't get the full results because she didn't protect herself from the sun, besides using the cream.

And the pictures below is the record of my second time using this cream. The before and after. The light is not exactly the same. The first one was taken in the morning and the second one at night, but you can still notice the improvement. Plus, this second time I've been lazy to finish the whole treatment and to protect me wisely, but it still worked. I think I will buy my third dose for this winter, too. And of course, this time didn't put anything on my face, in order to avoid problems lol.

Score: 4/5

- Whitens body (to reach your natural skin tone), but you need to also use sunblock and protect from the sun exposure.
- Moisturize skin.
- Last looong time if you only use it on your face. But, even if you used it in your whole body (arms, hands, neck and legs) it will last for 6 weeks, used twice daily.

- Do not erase dark spots
- Not recommended for people with acne problems

Repurchase? Yup, this is a must have. At least for me because I want to mantain my natural skin tone.

Just some final thoughts. There is a new version of this cream. Two new types, actually: for normal to oily skin and for normal to dry skin. My sister bought these "updated" version and also worked on her. So I'm just stating that you might not find this package anymore (The baby pink one. I guess they are not producing it anymore), but you can find the other version according to your skin type. I might review that too in the future.

Thanks for reading!
