It\’s bikini season here in the Philippines, we went to Boracay Island for a summer escape and I brought 2 variants (Peach & Lemon) of mask sheet that I used at night to help my skin relaxed and hydrated.

Bringing mask sheets on a vacay was definitely a good idea! It\’s a way of recharging your skin with vitamins while providing a good oil and water balance. The cooling effect added a more relaxing soak.
Out of the 4 variants, Lemon lime mask perfectly meets my skincare needs as the moment. I needed that Vitamin C to help repair and protect my skin from UV damage.
Four days at this beautiful Island… to make sure to be well prepared for the aftermath of getting sun-kissed, I took advantage of A\’Bloom\’s 10+10 mask sheets promotion and taddaaaaa!
Sparkle-Me-Bright Lemon Mask to the rescue to boost melanin production and skincare after sun exposure.


A good steal for 180 pesos for 20 sheets… so, 9 pesos each was a best offer that I wouldn\’t want to missed out. Offer is valid until out of stock, so you know the drill. 😊
What makes me choose this variant?
This Lemon Brightening Mask Sheet is  like a powerbank for skin, it recharges skin’s glow from within and also helps build a strong moisture barrier to lock in all the good stuff. 💦🍋 Brightening mask clarifies and brighten dull skin to unveil the natural glow from within.

The double dose of Vitamin C from lemon and lime extracts banishes dark spots and green tea boosts brightening while calming skin.

It\’s Simply the Zest! 💕

Blackhead out without the ouch!

The BHA Blackhead Blaster is formulated with a mixture of BHA (derived from willow bark) and apricot seed powder, using both manual and chemical exfoliation methods to give you a gentle but effective cleanse. This helps wedge those blackheads free and minimize enlarged pores, preventing future black and whiteheads from forming.

Using this product is easy peasy, all you have to do is massage the product onto the targeted areas in a circular motion. Do this for about a minute before rinsing off, and ta-da! You’ll be left with clean, smooth skin, just like that!
