Cathy Doll Picks!

Lately, I've been discovering more and more products that I love from Cathy Doll. I always loved using Korean products because they probably give the best results for my skin. Whether we admit it or not, Koreans (atleast, most of whom I've seen) has amazing skin, so why not try out products that are Korean inspired?

To start things off, I am in no way sponsored or have been sent these products to review or test out. I purchased all of them with my own money due to curiosity and in need of a new skin care product and makeup.

  • Acne Solution Serum Foam Cleanser
PHP 299 at SM Megamall 

I've been using this product the longest out of all of these so I could definitely say that it has worked wonders for me. I started out using the sachet version because a) I wanted to test out the product first if it would irritate my skin or not and b) because they didn't sell the larger or tube version at first. I bought like 3 of the sachets to use for 2 and a half weeks just to see a hint of results, by then I felt that my skin has been feeling and looking okay with this and at the same time, they started selling the bigger version so, I immediately bought it. The saleslady that was assisting me at that time told me that this is a cleanser and toner in one, so I wouldn't have to worry about using an additional product as a toner after using this.   

  • So Happy Berry Yogurt Peeling Gel
PHP 499 at Robinsons Department Store in Robinsons Antipolo 

This was actually a product that I was kind of iffy about buying due to its price and how fast I'll probably go through it. So again, I tried using the sachet version which I bought from the same place, it costed about PHP 49 (more or less) for a single one. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the sachet is good for one use only since it doesn't exactly have a seal and it doesn't contain a whole lot of product inside. 
So, when using it, you apply it all over your face by doing a circular motion with your hands. This tends to remove some inactive skin cells from your face (you will actually see and feel it falling), and this happens quite quickly so I'd rather you do it on the sink in your bathroom to avoid the mess it's going to make. After that, you just rinse it and your done. After using it, you would notice that your skin looks brighter and feels smoother. I would say that it is worth the price since you only need a small amount every time and I only use it twice or a maximum of 3 times a week depending on how my skin feels.

  • 99% Aloe Vera & Snail Serum Soothing Gel
PHP 199 at Robinsons Department Store in Robinsons Antipolo 
I'm not exactly sure if this is a new release, but I haven't really seen this before. If I did, I probably skipped it due to the fact that snails actually give me the creeps but hey, curiosity lead me into buying this when I first saw it. But anyway, my skin has been going through a weird phase wherein sometimes I have really oily skin, but then a few weeks later, I'll suffer from very dry skin. To be honest, I don't know why, probably due to my diet or lack of sleep, I've yet to find out. Due to my experience with the 2 skin care products from this line, I decided to browse through the Cathy doll stall again and I saw this which wasn't really there when I last visited. It says that this product can be used as a skin moisturizer anytime your skin is feeling dry. So, that's what got me interested, since I needed a decent moisturizer and my skin was definitely feeling dry at that time. Also, the price isn't all that bad compared to the last 2 that I bought. I now use this for my face all the time because I could actually feel that it's working, like my skin is definitely moisturized and the stickiness of this product after putting it on your face lasts only a few minutes until it sets in and gives a smooth finish. I only use about 2 pea size amounts on my face so, I guess this would last me a little bit longer than expected.

  • AA Matte Powder Cushion Oil Control SPF 50 PA +++
PHP 449 at SM Megamall
*Price not exactly sure since I keep seeing different prices online, but yes I only bought it for 449 a few weeks ago.  

This is the newest product that I decided to try on their line. If you're a beauty junkie like I am, you've probably heard of this cushion foundation that almost everybody is trying out. Seriously though, it is quite a trend since it's practically a foundation, concealer and powder all in one because it has coverage and sets by itself. Also, it has SPF which means you don't have to worry about putting on sunscreen especially when you're a person who is practically always on the go. I have been researching about good cushion foundations and have decided on trying out some other brand, though I was going back and forth if I should buy it or not especially when the price range is above a thousand pesos (what if I won't like it right?). I again, browsed through the Cathy Doll stall to see more products that they have and I stumbled upon this. First of all, I like that it said Matte on it because my skin honestly handles being dewy on its own most of the time so, matte has been a perfect choice for me. It also says that it is an AA Powder cushion. On the box, it says that this product includes the 9 effects of AA which are auto aura, whitening, moisturizing, covering blemish, cooling, sun protection, oil control, quick step using, tone correcting, that are all of which, what most of us are looking for when buying products similar to this. Second, the price was what I considered reasonable since comparing it to the other brand that I first saw, it is a lot cheaper.  
Top: No makeup, Bottom: With AA Cushion Powder (Just used my Cathy Doll Eyelash Curler, more details below)

So, I tried it and I have to say that it covered all of my insecurities and problems on my face. I have spent less time doing my makeup due to this because it means less time for blending, concealing and setting. It didn't fade throughout the day as I feared that it would, but even if it did, I wouldn't really have a problem of reapplying it since it doesn't crease or have signs of product build up. I also noticed that I don't feel my face getting all greased up in the middle of the day when I use this, so I could definitely say that this is perfect for people who has oily skin. 

  • Eyelash Curler

PHP 179 at Robinsons Department Store in Robinsons Antipolo.

Okay, I get it, some of you may think that Eyelash curlers are easy to find since they're practically everywhere which are much cheaper or more expensive. Hear me out, I've been using cheap eyelash curlers for awhile and I always experience pressing into my eyelashes too much that my lashes either breaks or falls out. I never really looked into that too much, but I decided to pick this one up since I thought that I may need a new one since I lost my extra curler a few weeks ago. I could definitely tell the difference from my PHP 18 eyelash curler that I got at a store near my place. This one from Cathy Doll felt like I wasn't pressing into my lashes too hard and I didn't need to do it over and over again for my lashes to follow. Another addition to that is, I haven't experienced my lashes falling out like I've witnessed from using my cheap curlers. This also includes one replacement rubber pad for when you want to change the ones that are already placed into the curler. 

What are your favorite products from Cathy Doll that you would recommend me to try out? Don't forget to tell me what other lines of products that you're interested for me to give my top picks on down on the comment box.

Disclaimer: These are my personal picks from this brand that are based on what I've tried so far and what I would actually recommend people to test out themselves. But please do remember that our skins are different, some things will work for me and maybe not so much for you and vice versa, so I would also advise you to do your research first if you are curious about a certain product.
