Swan Dance International Product Launch: Meishoku, Girlactik & Chacott are now in the Philippines!

Contrary to popular belief, not because a beauty product worked wonders on others necessarily means it would do you well. Just a few weeks ago, my friend who had an acne breakout asked me to recommend a good facial cleanser. Since my skin type is predominantly oily, it's normal for me to recommend a mattifying product. To which she replied "I already tried that and it dried me up." From there she told me that her skin type was normal. Different skin types have different needs. Some people who have combination skin type even go to an extent of using different products to spot-treat their face. 

Now why am I telling you all of this? My point is it doesn't only apply to skin care but to almost everything else. Makeup, fragrances, hair care, fashion and many many more. That's why you have to know yourself more, figure out your needs and preferences. Explore your choices. Then that's how you find your own HG product. Right?

Last Friday night I got invited to the exclusive product launching of Swan Dance International held at the Celebrity Hall of Swire Elan Hotel. I WAS OVERWHELMED. When I got there I didn't know where to start since everything was so cute! You'll be excited as I was when you get to see what they have in store for 2016! Without further ado, let me introduce some of the products from Swan Dance International...

Meishoku DET Clear Bright & Peel Series

DET Clear Bright & Peel Peeling Jelly (180mL)

DET Clear Bright & Peel Peeling Jelly is a watery gel type peeling gel that softens and gently exfoliates dead skin (old keratin) with fruit-derived AHA and plant-derived BHA. The fruit-derived AHA promises to make dull skin look brighter for a more clear complexion while the plant-derived BHA is recommended for skin with blocked pores and acne. DET Clear Bright & Peel Peeling Jelly is also available in Mixed Berries Fragrance, Mixed Fruit Fragrance and Unscented. I believe the Unscented type is recommended for people with dry sensitive skin. Given the price, I'd give it a go since it's a lot cheaper than most peeling gels / creams in the market.

DET Clear Bright & Peel Oil Cut Cleansing Liquid (180mL)

DET Clear Bright & Peel Oil Free Cleansing Liquid is also made from AHA and BHA. It is best used for removing heavy makeup like waterproof eyeliners and mascaras. No need for the usual cleansing as this makeup remover is also your facial cleanser. Awesome. Perfect for lazy people like me! I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE! What I also like about it is made oil-free and silicon free so it's gentle on the skin and won't dry you out. I heard that it's so gentle that it wouldn't harm your eyelash extensions... but I still wouldn't recommend doing that yet.

DET Clear Bright & Peel Peeling Soap (100g)

DET Clear Bright & Peel Peeling Soap has limonene in its orange oil that lifts dirt from the pores to keep the skin soft and clear at the same time. I absolutely adore the packaging of this product! It really looks like a gem in person. So cute! Not only does it look good, but it will make you look good too! It is said that it lathers into a airy bubbly whip that will leave your skin smooth without any feeling of tightness that you usually get from drying soaps. This soap also enhances the permeability of lotions used after this product.

Meishoku Organic Rose Series

The Meishoku Organic Rose Series contains the finest organic Damask roses from Bulgaria to produce a more soft beautiful skin. It is said that Damask Rose Water Extract has the effect of keeping the skin hydrated leaving it more resilient and plump. The whole series includes the Meishoku Moisture Lotion, Meishoku Skin Conditioner, Meishoku Beauty Serum, Meishoku Conditioning Gel, Meishoku Moisture Cream, Meishoku Soda Mist and Meishoku Moisture Emulsion. I've personally tested some of these and they smell so lovely. If you are into light and non-sticky beauty products, you will want this! No joke!

Meishoku BIGANSUI Series

The Meishoku Bigansui Series is a popular lotion with 130 years of history. It is a hot-selling item for most Japanese junior and senior high school students because of its anti-acne properties. It works by controlling excessive sebum that causes acne. The whole series includes the Meishoku Bigansui Skin Lotion for Women, Meishoku Bigansui Skin Lotion for Men, Meishoku Bigansui Soap, Meishoku Face Wash, Meishoku Bigansui Acne Essence.

Chacott for Professionals

Chacott originally started out as a manufacturer and retailer of ballet products in Japan until they saw the demand for stage makeup and ventured into launching their own HD makeup. Stage makeup is known for being long lasting, highly pigmented and vivid in color. That's what I love about Chacott when they did my makeover. I got stuck at EDSA due to traffic on my way home and I'm surprised that it's still there!

Girlactik Beauty

Girlactik Beauty started out with Hollywood Makeup Artist Galit Strugano and her frustrations in dealing with the mess that usually comes with glitter makeup and eventually developed her own no-budge sparkle makeup. Pigmented shadows, blushes, glosses, shimmer dusts, tinted moisturizers they have it in several shades. And it doesn't end there, they even have matte products. I absolutely cannot wait for their Matte Lip Paint! Need to get my hands on one!

Girlactik Star Gloss is available in Just Sexy, Be Pink, Smooch, Oh La La Red, Bella, Sheer Bone, Orange Twist, Burlesque Red, Rockstar Gold, Pout, Flirty, Prettiest, So Pretty, Innocent Pink, Pin Up, So Lush, Just Nude and Baby Doll.

Here are some of the swatches for the Girlactik Star Gloss. See how these glosses vary from sheer to shimmer finish. They are long lasting with a little tack, and stay on with a good shine to keep your lips moist and sparkling. I've tried the Burlesque Red and it stayed put even when I got home. It even left a pretty pink tint when I removed it.

Girlactik Star Shadow is a pressed eyeshadow compact that delivers long-wearing color with vibrant mineral pigments. It may be applied dry for a sheer look or wet for an amplified effect. Available in pearl finish and matte finish.

Girlactik Heaven's Dust is your bestfriend when it comes to highlighting! Just apply some of this shimmering sparkling dust all over your shoulders, nose bridge, brow bone, d├ęcolletage (and whatever you could think of) to give your skin a lustrous, sparkling shine!

Of course the night wouldn't be possible without the very gorgeous founder of Swan Dance International, Ms. Dursula Ito. It was indeed the passion and dedication of Ms. Dursula to offer the highest quality products at the best value. She believes that cosmetics help to make every woman feel more confident and appealing. And that you could bring out the inner beauty of every woman through enhancing her outer beauty. I totally love her, she's very friendly and accommodating!

As for the very random makeover that night. I absolutely love it! The model for the night, Alina did a good job on my brows! I had no idea which specific products they used for the whole look but all I know is that they used a combination of Chacott and Girlactik products on my face.

Right after the makeover...

Look at THAT coverage, I couldn't even see my dark circles anymore!

Here's a better shot for the eye makeup. My hooded eyelids keeps on eating my eyeshadows!

This is what I look like after 2 hours of commuting... Not bad, right?
