Going Gaga Over VMV

This is not a review. I guess you can say I'm just a fan raving about my new favorite skin care brand, VMV Hypoallergenics.

This is actually not the first time I tried their product. I was able to get myself a pressed powder before and mind you, it was not that expensive.

Anyway, I've been a long time user of Ponds, Olay, and Garnier products. I have a sensitive skin but I never had any major breakout with these. So why change? As they say, why fix something if it's not broken - or something to that effect. Fast forward to motherhood stage, I felt ugly and old. It's either I try other skin care or start using makeup again to get that boost. I've been frequently checking the web for an effective products that won't irritate my skin. Lo and behold, I stumbled upon VMV Hypoallergenics!

I initially got the Armada lip balm and I looove it! 2 days after using it, my lips became so soft - no more dry lips! I thought, if my lips could be this soft, could it also improve my dull and dry skin? So I got myself another product, illuminants and skin saving soap. Everyweek, I would get myself a new product to try and everyweek I also notice my weekly allowance thining out. Yes, it is a bit pricey, comparable to imported brands. And yes again, it's a local brand! Wicked isn't?

The illuminants line and Superskin care are now part of my beauty staple. My friends also noticed a significant improvement and have gotten curious with VMV. I'll let them try it themselves. I don't limit my love for VMV Hypoallergenics to myself because I've just started using their mom and baby line (Grandma Minnie's) for my baby boy and so far so good. Next in line is the Armada Line. If I can only stretch my weekly allowance... ;P
