Giveaway: Make Your Skin Care Wish Come True with HBC -CLOSED-

****This giveaway is now CLOSED. Click *HERE* to see who won :)*****

Hi, starshines! Let's talk skin today. 

Why do you wear makeup? Well, let me tell you why I do. I believe that makeup can do wonders. Wearing makeup makes me feel better about myself. It's my confidence-booster. Call me vain but of course I want to look good in front of other people, and makeup can help me achieve just that. Now the next question that arises is this: Why is there a need for me to wear makeup? 

My skin is far from perfect. I have already told you my skin history when I posted about my *skin care routine* (which needs updating, btw) before. I had a lot of pimples during my late elementary and early high school days, and that made me feel really insecure about my face. Then after what felt like forever, thanks to the different products I used, the pimples started disappearing and my face started clearing up. 

Now, these are some of my main skin concerns: uneven skin tone, oiliness, redness esp. around the nose area, blemishes here and there. This is why I like to wear makeup. It temporarily addresses my skin concerns. Emphasis on 'temporarily.' I've come to realize that although makeup does well in concealing my imperfections, I still should not forget to take care of my skin. I should be doing something to keep my skin clear and healthy and not just be covering it up with thick layers of foundation all the time. I can't just wear makeup every time, you know. Sino ba naman ang hindi gusto ng super gandang skin, na parang naka-makeup ka na kahit wala ka namang makeup? 

There are now so many products out there that can help us take better care of our skin. We just need to be careful in choosing which ones to use. We first have to know what we need to fix for us to know how to fix it. 

HBC wants to help you address your skin concerns through one of their skin care lines, Hortaleza, M.D. Their facial soaps were designed to target your specific skin care concerns. HBC is giving two lucky readers of this blog four (4) variants of the Hortaleza, M.D. clear soaps and Beauty Certificates for three (3) free diamond peel sessions each.

  7. My biggest skin concern are these blackheads all over my nose that just don't go away! I scrape all the gunk out (gross, I know, sorry), but they'll just come back within a few hours and are so annoying and ugly :( Pore strips + acne medicine do nothing for them. Beauty Fairy please help me, what I'm gonna do? Some advice please. Cant take it anymore.

  8. What skin concern would you like to address at this moment?
    I'd like to lighten my dark spots please! I've had a recent bout with pimples (I suspect it's because I didn't wash my brush for two weeks straight LOL) and now I have to lighten the souvenir that the pesky zits left behind.
    If you were to write a wish to a Beauty Fairy, what will it be?Dear Beauty Fairy, I ain't gonna lie. I hope you grant my wish of owning all the lipsticks of all brands in all shades all over the world (and please begin with all shades that HBC San San has ;P). I hope you felt the intensity of my need with my excessive use of the word "all". Thank you very much in advance.

  10. Dear Beauty Fairy,


    I've got a problem with white/black heads sitting over my nose area! I just know that the main cause of this is my oily skin especially on that part of my face. I definitely wish for a pore minimizing product.. What product would you recommend to eliminate this freakin' dirt on my nose? As much as possible I really don't want to have facial treatments because it's really painful... :(

  13. My skin dilemma includes blackheads on my nose and sometimes my face gets dry. I know this is just usual problem most of us is experiencing, but I think the price at stake in this giveaway specially the diamond peel session is what I really need for my upcoming wedding come November. I hope beauty fairy will help me in looking my best at that day. :)

  16. Dear Beauty Fairy Aya,
    I have oily but not so pimple prone skin. I also have blackheads around my nose. I seldom have time for extraction of blackheads. Make up is hard to keep because of my oily face. I also have uneven skin tone because of previous acne marks.


    I often get intimidated with these imperfections and I sincerely want to address them. Who doesn't want a flawless skin like a princess? But I cannot afford to go to derma every month.


    I hope you can help me.


    Love,
    Hazel

  26. My biggest concern at the moment is my post pimple marks and freckles. If I were to wish to a beauty fairy, I just want to lighten it so that I can have more self-esteem. Having dark spots on my face somehow lessens my confidence to face other people without heavy concealer or makeup.

    My main skin concern is always have breakouts along my chin. I've read so many articles about it and apply most of the regimen that they recommended but nothing seems to cure my breakouts. I try using pimple ointment, it works for a time but with a great cause, it darkens the area where you put the ointment. And now i have two concerns in my face, pimples and uneven skin. Pls. pls. help me with my skin dilemma... :)

    Dear Beauty Fairy,


    I need your help big time. Are there ways to at least reduce fine lines and wrinkles? I'm in my mid-30s and signs of wrinkles, age spots and sagging is already showing. I hope so because these can make me look older.


    Hoping for solutions,

  41. Dear Beauty Fairy,


    Last year I had acne vulgaris and consulted my dermatologist and had a light fruit-based peeling and had to take medicines for it, now that I have recovered and the breakouts stopped, I wish the pimple scars it left will lessen. A little exfoliation would help. Hope to win this giveaway! :)

  45. Dearest Beauty Fairy,


    Skin is one of the parts of our body which is most essential especially among women. It truly needs to be taken care of especially our face which is very prone to pimples. As a college student taking up BS Accountancy, it gave me so much stress. I’m used to staying up ’till the wee hours of night, trying to get my school works done. Because of sleeping late and not eating on time, I got pimples & blackheads and I admit I lose time for myself. It lessens my self-confidence, thinking I’ll look better without these pimples and blackheads on my face. But time is not only the problem. I honestly can’t afford to pay those facial services since they’re a bit expensive. Nowadays, I’d rather be practical and spend my little allowance on fare, food and projects. I know there are facial services out there for a low cost but I don’t wanna take a risk because I’m afraid it might damage my skin. So as soon as I heard about your giveaway contest sponsored by HBC which is highly trusted, I completely grabbed the opportunity to join this contest. They say, opportunity knocks only once & I can’t let this opportunity to pass by. I’m crossing my fingers on this one. Hoping you could help me with this skin problem for it will definitely be of great help to instill the kind of confidence I need. Thank you, beauty fairy! ;)
