SCOUTED! Facial Libagger from OkayOkay and Zalora finds

Last time I did a Scouted post, I was pretty sad that I did it too late. I got the product and it turned out great but people had no way of getting it by then because the deal has expired. This time I'm doing it different. I'll be sharing all the things I'm looking at. I've already bought 1 out of 5 and budget-wise, I really don't want to buy more.

Shopaholics beware, please turn back right now because even I am having a hard time trying to hold back from blind-clicking the checkout button and leaving financial regrets for later.

Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel (30ml) and Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream (25ml)

Price: Php 500
Status: Bought

Contents: Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel (30ml) and Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream (25ml)

I'm not particularly searching for another bb cream but I actually already bought this tester kit because of the GEL.

If you're one of the nastier kids like me, you probably used to spread white glue all over your hands. Then you would wait for it to dry and peel it off. Sometimes you would sniff it before it dried, and you would giggle at how much it smelled like sweaty feet. No? Huh. Well the point is, sometimes you'd get too excited and try to peel it off before it completely dried up. To quickly get rid of the messed up glue, you just rub all over and come up with these blackened (or still white, depending on your hygiene level) bits of boogers.

That's basically the idea of the gel. Word on the street is, it's pretty good for blackheads. At Php 500, it's a little pricey for a tester set but if I get the gel with a bb cream to boot, it's pretty worth it. (That's what I'll keep telling myself.)

VMV Hypoallergenics VMVacation Kit

Price: Php 735
Status: Pending

Contents: Armada Sport 70 (15g,) Armada Lip Balm 60+ (10g,) Essence Skin-Saving Clark Wash Hair + Body "Big Softie" Shampoo (20ml) and Id Sweat Acne + Overall Antibacterial Monolaurin gel (50ml)

VMV is not yet tried and tested by Tellie, so I'd really love to have a starter kit to build a feel of the brand. So far, I've only tried the Subtle Shine lipstick and for being dermatologically-formulated, I found it weird that my lips would peel badly at this. It's not even the moist peeling I experience with overly oily glosses but a sort of peeling with a little bit of an itch and a sting.

Still, this is a huge industry favorite so I'd really love to see what all the fuss is about.

Oryspa Travel Kit

Price: Php 900
Status: Pending

Contents: Rice Bran Solid Perfume, Rice Bran Meditation Balm (15g,)  Rice Bran Chili Oil (50ml,) Rice Bran Face and Body Wash (120ml,) Rice Bran Shampoo with Olive Oil (50ml,) Rice Bran Conditioner with Olive Oil (50ml) and Rice Bran Beauty Oil (60ml)

I don't know anything about Oryspa. But will you look at that kit?! Gigil. What's holding me back, again, is the price. I'm not willing to pay such a huge price if I'm being experimental. Although that is quite a lot of items.. TEMPTATION, STAY AWAY!!!

VMV Hypoallergenics Skintangible "Faint"ation Skin-Refining Non-Makeup SPF 30 (12g)

Price: Php 600
Status: Pending

Php 600 is pretty cheap for a foundation coming from such a brand, but let's not lie here, "Faint"ation is what really got to me. I'm holding back because I don't really have much faith in American bb creams.
