Announcement: Commenter of the Month winner, and a cute May gift

Konnichiwa! Were you able to visit Japan in time for the cherry blossom festival this year? That’s personally on my bucket list of things to do when I travel but until then, I’m quite content with all the goodies that J-beauty offers! But before I go into that, we have an important announcement:

Congratulations to Alyana Mariz Perez whose comments we’ve enjoyed reading (and answering)! You are our March Commenter of the Month, and you’ve won some goodies to help you glow this summer! Please email den [at] for details on how you can claim your prize.


Back to dreaming about Japan and sakura, we can’t afford to fly anyone there (yet) but we’re more than happy to bring a little piece of their gazillion beauty offerings to you! Our May Commenter of the Month will get a sweet treat from Canmake, which includes:

Juicy Glow Skin Base SPF40 PA++, 1-Day Eyebrow Tint Jelly, Perfect Stylist Eyes Palette, Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50+ PA++++ sample, Canmake mirror, Canmake towel, Canmake pouch

We loved these products when we gave Stacie a gyaru makeover and now you can get to try them for yourself, using brand new and sealed products, of course!

So, it’s still the same mechanics as before. This giveaway is open to all residents of the Philippines. We'll pick one commenter who leaves useful or insightful comments, such as sharing feedback about a product we reviewed or responding to the discussion prompt at the end of each article. It can even be a really good question - we love getting those as they’re helpful for other readers as well! Of course, we’ll also consider the frequency of the reader's comments. Do they always visit? Do they read through the site? At the end of the day though, we always value quality more than quantity.

We’re looking forward to hearing more from you!
