Because I haven’t found a beauty regimen that is suitable for me, I am in a constant search for beauty products. While browsing my facebook, I stumbled upon the sponsored post of the Beauty Recipe Philippines. So I ordered their toner, day and night moisturizer.
It has been weeks since I have used it and here are my reviews on each.
It was taken by courier to my home. It came with a box and a rafia ribbon with a gratitude note. The toner was packed with a bubble wrap which I appreciate but the product had some spill.Each moisturizer had a separate box. The prints were adorable. I appreciate the details.
But the one I noticed is that it is bulky. When you need to bring it for traveling or an overnight, it consumes lots of space. It is also not flexible because you have to organize it properly in your regimen bag so that it won’t spill or cause a mess after opening.
APPLE PORE MINIMIZER TONER
From their facebook post
Beauty Recipe’s Apple Pore Minimizer removes the deep seated dirt trapped inside pores. Let’s face it, your facial wash or face soap can only do so much. And when you don’t use a toner before going to bed, you’ll be spending the next 4 days with a bump on your face.
When used regularly, it can minimize pores and balance the skin’s PH level. If in case you snoozed through PH day in chemistry class, the ideal PH level is 5.5. If the skin’s PH level is far from 5.5, it will be dry or oily. This toner however, helps in making the skin’s PH as near to 5.5 as possible. YES! Balancing your skin’s PH is easier than balancing your life!
It also contains apple extract that is rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C, both important properties in keeping the skin youtful and energized. Retail Price is P330 for a 250 ML bottle.
I love this product. Among the three I bought, this one is my favorite.
- It can really clean your face even after washing.
- It smells good.
- It has some cooling effect when you apply it to your skin.
- It doesn’t dry out your skin like other toners.
- It was successful in minimizing my pores.
The drawback includes the packaging and the stinging that it leaves on certain areas of your face. The bottle is actually aesthetically pleasing but it is not handy and the bottle cap is prone for spillage.
TOMATO DD DAY CREAM WITH SPF 30
From their facebook post
Our revolutionary DD cream contains tomato extract and sunscreen – crucial ingredients needed to bring out your skin’s natural pinkish glow, hide blemishes and other imperfections while protecting your skin from intense sun damage. Its dewy finish makes it suitable for dry skin. DD cream blends well with any skin tone and can be used as an excellent make up base. 15 grams. Price: P340
This a very moisturizing product with a dewy finish. Dewy doesn’t sit well with my skin though because I am naturally oily.
- It makes my skin very shiny even after I powdered.
- It doesn’t have a good coverage, is not buildable and when I wear for the day, it makes my skin blotchy.
- It gives me breakout.
- The color is in the pinky tone and it is not flexible for other skin tones.
- The packaging is nice but I would prefer a pump type because it is more hygenic and handy to bring.

At night, no matter how oily I get through the day, my skin tend to dry out. This product might just the solution for me.
- This is hydrating and moisturizing.

The one drawback is again the packaging. It is really hygenic if they use the pump.
