    Trixia Salonga

    Hi! I'm Trixia and welcome to my slice of life. I'm not your average blogger, I'm a hybrid of multi-dimensional shoujo, a rare breed of legal loli and a unique original producer of ideas and inspiration. My path goes on the other side of the road which is less traveled, where thrill and excitement rests. This blog holds my inner thoughts, experiences, opinions and out-of-the-ordinary theories which I keep as a journal of my life's highlights. Contact me at reshadaseamaiden@gmail.com for collaboration





    Last August 23, 2018, I've been surprised to receive a package, this is the Skinwerx essentials by BBCP skin care products. I can't contain my thrill and excitement to test out the new products, it was exactly at the right time because on these weeks, I'm having hormonal breakouts. I would usually go to a certain skincare hub to solve these issues, but since I was sent the gift package to try out, I decided to give it a solo shot in my face and see if it does wonders. These are FDA approved and was also tested by others as well, these products are homemade and organic, a perfect chance for you, dear girls and guys to see if these products are effective, and why did I say so? because I've never tried homemade products before and this is my first time to do so, I've always been pampered in the clinics but I would be here to test this out and see if the products do work. I see my skin as dry type, has certain conditions of sensitivity, there are products that don't work on my face and some do. We'll see if this does.

    I haven't used any other products than my usual soaps for the past 2 months. Yes, you might be wondering why. It's because when I tend to get indulged with what I'm doing most self-care are sacrificed. I'm also human and a dreamer, who tends to neglect on herself when engrossed, that's why when it comes down to the point that my face has suffered from my neglect, yeah I definitely need an expert and these are God sent on time! I hope~cross fingers. Ok, so moving on let's get to testing!


    The products I was sent are:

    Skinwerx essentials Tomatox Foaming Cleanser,
    Glutamansi Baking Soda Soap with Shea Butter and Tea Tree Oil
    Bentonite clay mask
    Tomatox AHA Serum
    Vegan Blush Balm in Summer


    I've started using on August 27, 2018. I  started with the Glutamansi Baking Soda Soap with Shea Butter and Tea Tree Oil to cleanse my face, then applied the Skinwerx essentials Tomatox Foaming Cleanser. At this Point though I stopped because I accidentally placed the cleanser on my eyes, it reddened, so I lastly only applied the Vegan blush balm on my lips. Gladly, after a few minutes, the redness subsided and no more pain felt in the eyes.

    My experience in using the cleanser

    Day 1:

    The sweet tomato smell oozes just right after I remove the plastic, it took a few pushes down to get the cleanser but it was handy to have a brush on the bottle itself, plus it's easy to wash.
