A few days ago, our ever reliable (I'm saying this in my most sarcastic tone) frontdesk handed me a package (dated November 10, good job)--a black box wrapped in a cute pink ribbon.

What's inside?

It's a gift pack from Purederm to be reviewed by me. :) I'm not a beauty expert like Shen or Liz or Lauren, BUT I do know how to take care of my skin especially my face. I am very particular when it comes to my undereye circles and I literally freak out whenever I grow a zit or 2.  I am also trying to take care of my hands and feet more so this is just perfect. I had a meeting the next morning so I decided to try one of the items in the box. Can you guess what it is?

I decided to try their Hydro Gel mask to see if my face would brighten a little with just a few hours of sleep. I've always used Garnier's Light Whitening Infusion Tissue mask for some quick facial fixuppers and it always work. So I was curious if Purederm would do the same for me.

Unlike Garnier, the content was a little more wet and slimey (since it's made of gel). It was also scented. And often you can get Kmart coupons for Garnier products. I had it on for just 15 minutes (not the usual 30) because as time passed I felt my face getting more itchy. I had to remove it before I develop some kinda allergy. It did work a little in moisturizing and brightening my face a little. I noticed that it was easier to apply make-up especially my concealer after usage. I will try the others soon and will update you with the results. :)

Anyway, I braved the streets today and went to Depot Fashion Mag's office at Greenhills. As usual, traffic greeted me with open arms. But thank you Kuya Andy for picking me up again! I met with our web programmer Roville, the lovely General Manager Sam and our lovely graphic artist Jericka. I'm excited to see our improved website very soon! Before I left, Sam also gave me a gift--a Depot planner (yey) and a complimentary copy of our newest issue.Yey.

And lookie!
