Raves on My Blogapalooza Loot

Having attended Blogapalooza at Fully Booked BHS, Taguig last September 17, I was one of the lucky bloggers who received those big loot bags after the event. And I’ll let you in on a secret: I already knew what’s inside the bag since I was one of those who packed the items lol. But I haven’t used most of them before so I’m gonna review them.
(BTW this isn’t my loot, it’s Azrael’s but I just copied this photo from him since we almost have the same items received anyway.)



Items I liked from my loot:

  • Oryspa Rice Bran Baby Powder in Lavender Scent – It smells like Angel’s Breath, if you’re familiar with the brand. I’ve heard that rice powder is a good absorber, great for people with oily skin like me. And it’s got less ingredients being organic. My only problem with it is that it feels a bit rough against the skin, especially on the face. It’s like getting a gentle microdermabrasion each time I apply it lol.
  • Oryspa Meditation Balm – This is a great alternative if you don’t want the lingering smell of al camphor (like Efficascent oil). It has an aromatherapeutic citrusy-minty scent which I like. It also comes in a very small jar so I can lug it on my bag.
  • Easy-Phamax Wheatgrass with Honey – I’ve been drinking wheatgrass even before I got to receive a sample of this great drink. I’ve no problems drinking it at all since honey neutralizes the grassy taste and it is surprisingly good even on the first try (for me at least). Best served cold. Actually, I’m about to drink one right now.
  • Farmer John’s Cheddar and Sour Cream – I love it’s tart, cheesy taste plus the chips have the right crisp to it. I wish they could have added more contents on their small packs kasi bitin lol
  • Wild Willy’s Real American Chicharon in Plain Salted – It’s just like your regular chicharon, except that its on a foil packaging which makes it fresher and crunchier.
  • Memo Wallet – Sleek and classy, it’s nice as a credit card and bills holder.
  • Regatta Polo shirt – I haven’t worn it yet but I like its material. You can tell it’s not one of those cheap polo shirts you can buy at tiangges. I could have swapped mine for another color though. Khaki doesn’t flatter me much; it’s like my second skin lol!
  • Human Nature Spray Sanitizer Citrus Burst – I like its citrusy scent on my skin and it’s non-drying. It’s organic too! Lesser ingredients=more skin love. I’ve set aside all my other antibac sprays for the meantime lol.
  • Forme Body Spray in Magnolia – It’s nice as a daily scent, something you can wear at home or office.
  • Tree Hugger Pens – The pens’ exterior is made out of recycled corn and carton. Anything eco-friendly is definitely a winner for me!
  • Sparkle Spa Giveaways and GC  – Some samples I gave to mom, some I used (take note, they’re from an imported brand, Babor.   For the GCs, I’m definitely gonna use them on a weekend (their spa is from Paranaque pa). I could use a massage!
  • Aquabest SHIFT HAPPENS Shirt – Nice fitting, cute statement at the front. But because there’s a brand logo at the back, I think I prefer to wear it at home X ).
  • 360 Fitness GC – I’ll use it when I finally get inspired to drag my lazy *ss off, which is uncertain yet lol
  •  Aesthetic Science Kojic Soap – Unlike other brands, this soap goes on smoothly on the skin and it rinses easily. I also found out that it isn’t as drying and irritating as other brands.
  • Lay Bare GC and Soothing Cream – I shave sometimes so it’s perfect for me. Waxing I haven’t tried yet but I think it'd be interesting since they use cold wax which is painless upon application.
  • Shopinas mouse pad – It’s great since we don’t have one for our laptop at home.
  • Lipton Yellow Label Tea – There are days when I’m a tea person so it’s good. Just thought it’d better if it was green tea lol joking
  • Jap-ok GCs I’m thinking of who I’m going to bring to Jap-ok for a karaoke session. I have three more free passes. Karl? Nah, it’s going to be disastrous lol
  • Papa Johns Complimentary GC – Hello, it’s Papa John’s! ‘Nuff said.
  •  Avira Antivirus 3 months Complimentary Card – Our current antivirus expires in 7 Days so I’m definitely gonna use it soon.
