Independence Day x Garnier OilClear Sauna Mask

Happy Independence Day Pilipinas!

I’m so happy this day has arrived because it’s the 114th anniversary of our freedom plus I get to psychologically fool myself that it’s a FREE day which only means one thing: I get to do what I want today. HAH! Fooled you, Tracy! I initially planned on doing something else for my free day but my spontaneity got me to better places. 🙂 So here’s how I spent my Independence “FREE” Day:

I rode a jeepney to the city and sat there for almost an hour. I switched jeepneys then after so that manong driver wouldn’t catch me having a joyride. Haha. In our daily life, we rush a lot of things. We want to get things done fast for the day and 80% of the time mind our own business with work or school. Sometimes, we forget the little things like a stranger greeting you a pleasant morning with that huge grin on his face. Honestly, that made my day. 🙂 We should learn to appreciate the little but important things in our life and the jeepney ride taught me that. Btw, I’ve been dying to do this since I graduated. I used to ride random jeepneys all the time in college. Sometimes it would reach the corners of Jaro or Villa.

I also went to the city to look at some stores. “Look” became “buy” and I bought lots of arm candies, a ring, a bracelet bead kit and a roman jotpad from my favorite accessories store. It did cost me half of the money I had but they were actually very cheap!

Hafta say my favorites are the ones in the mid bottom. I love their beads! 🙂

I’ve been watching TV (so not me) for the past weeks and a particular commercial would always glue my eyes to the screen. I told myself if it’s really big ‘n’ tasty, then why isn’t it in my mouth yet? So for my free day I opted to finally taste the mysterious burger from Mcdonalds!

Just look at the ooooooooozing cheese O_O I didn’t regret spending 165 php for this heavenly burger. And I love how they only name it Big ‘N Tasty and nothing more. It’s the perfect title for a burger like this! I’m starting to love you again Mcdo! Keep it up! 🙂

Lastly, I treated myself to a sauna mask para relax 😀 I’m not a Garnier girl but I seem to have a liking of their masks and eye brightening products because they’re the only ones who really work for me. The Garnier Skin Naturals OilClear Zinc Self-Heating Sauna Mask (ang haba) is specifically for those who have oily to combination skin which is the one and only reason why I bought it instantly. I like how they make products for different skin types. It’s like you bought a pair of jeans that fits you just right. 🙂 So as not to bore you with more reading, I’ll give you a rundown instead of how it works:

1. Wash your face and pat dry. If you’re the type of person who uses heavy make-up, I suggest you use make-up remover first then proceed with washing your face.

2. Apply gently on the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin). Because I have a huge forehead, I used most of the product on that area. Hahaha!

And here’s where I break the rules, as usual. In a really hot day just like everyday here in Iloilo, I sweat a lot and with sweat comes oil. So I also applied an ample amount of the mask to where I would initially sweat. Not the armpits! It’s the area above my upper lip and right under my nose. 🙂

Say hello to my happy mask face! 😀

3. Leave on for 3 minutes. The moment I put a dab of the mask on my skin, I felt it tighten immediately which is a great sign that it’s working! But after a few minutes I could feel the heat. Sauna mask gani. It was not so intense but if felt like a hot towel was sitting on my face. When I breathe (which humans involuntarily do) the air coming from my nostrils feels like a hot air blower to the skin above my upper lip.

Here’s me trying to relieve myself from the heat of the mask. Like that would help. LOL 🙂
While waiting I turned to my laptop and pressed play on the Ellen Show snippet I’ve been endlessly watching all day.

It’s a short video of Ellen with the “T-Pain Mic” and T-Pain in the middle part singing with her. Wanna watch too? Link here:

4. Time to rinse it off!

You can now proceed to your CTM ritual. Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize! Use 2-3 times a week for best results! 🙂
Cheers to an oil-free face!

How did you spend your Independence Day? I’d love to know! 🙂
