How to Make Your Legs Shiny

You guys know I love glow.. most especially on the legs.. this is why for shoefies.. I make sure my legs look golden πŸ’«

This is why I got addicted to Fenty Beauty
Look how shiny and sparkly my legs are

When MAC came up with a strobe body lotion, I was hesitant. I know MAC can come up with a good glow knowing their strobe and highlighters.. but for body lotion? My skin might get irritated.

MAC Strobe Body Lotion

Well I was wrong.. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ It is lightweight (as if nothing’s on you), not sticky and it doesn’t irritate my skin at all. If I have to compare it with Fenty’s Body Lava, MAC definitely has a subtle glow and less pigment.. but! I love that BUT..

It hydrates the skin way better than Fenty

It is creamy but turns into a lightweight moisturizer once applied. It has a bronze pearlescent particles and optics that are very subtle — you won’t even see or feel that it’s there. It’s like your legs with extra oomph. 🦡

It definitely is subtle, hydrating to the skin and advisable to use all over the body without the sticky, itchy and heavy feeling

I need a real glow.. honestly. To the point that I still need a Fenty Body Lava; but for someone who also needs hydration and less irritation whenever I use a product.. there goes MAC!

Technically, all we need is a lotion or body cream to hydrate our skin.. but always remember that extra-glow means so much more.

Recently, I stopped applying lotion or body creams daily because my skin is well-hydrated already. Thanks to POTEN-CEE +C WITH COLLAGEN.

I grew up knowing aunts who live in the US and love to be tan. Ever since, my dream to have fair skin is gone with the wind. My ideal color is more like Riri’s and Naya’s. Thus, when I learned to do my own makeup, I make my bronzer DARKER than ever.

I want to take collagen for years now (because I’m aging and all) but Doctors prohibit me because I take A BUNCH of medicines already.. Eh kaso no choice naman na ako but to take vitamins daily due to COVID, so after gaining a lot of weight because of taking vitamins, I checked Poten-cee with collagen as well. Though the plan is to take it ONLY when Im tired or had a busy day, I’m taking it daily for a month now.

Take note that Vitamin C (70mg) is at a very low dosage since collagen has 650mg already. This is why when I feel sick and weak, I take Potencee Forte (1000mg Vit C) instead.

Now why take collagen when I dont want to have fairer skin? These are my reasons :

  1. I have a major breakout lately because I misbehaved, tried a skincare product with SPF and ate tons of sweets and carbs πŸ˜… Collagen helps in making my skin look firmer and brighter. Pinapaliit niya ang huge acne ko
  2. Ever since I took collagen, hindi na ako naglolotion everyday 😭 Maliban sa tamad.. talagang hindi ko na nakikitang dry ang skin ko or makapal ang dry skin sa toes/nails!
  3. With collagen, I lose more weight. (Though minimal lang)
  4. Mas inaantok ako at maayos ang tulog ko pag nagtitake ako ng collagen.
  5. Also, mas naging strong ako and hindi ko na kinakailangan nang pain reliever to ease my joint pains.
  6. Kumonti ang nalalagas na buhok sa ulo ko 😭😭😭
  7. I don’t palpitate anymore – di ko na nararamdaman ang pagskip ng heartbeat ko
  8. Though malaking tulong ang Estee Lauder skincare, achieve ang glowing skin with Poten-cee Collagen. No need to apply skincare 2x a day!

Collagen is important to skin vitality. Several studies have shown that collagen supplements can help improve skin hydration, reduce skin dryness, skin scaling and even formation of wrinkles.

Collagen is absorbed faster with Vit C that’s why they are paired together. Madalas ang mga skincare products may Vit C which helps produce collagen.. but taking collagen DAILY makes absorption and results faster. Though I don’t like to have fair skin, sobrang plus plus ang mga benefits ng collagen na hindi ko in-expect. In fact, mararamdaman mo ang difference pag one day di ka uminom nito. Ultimo dandruff ko tanggal eh 😭

Inaral ko siya for 2 months bago ko i-share sa inyo. Inaral ko talaga kung ano ang epekto pag walang collagen at meron. And I must say, na-move ang foundation ko nang 2 shades! Ganon kabilis! As in sayang lang yung makeups ko na mas maitim na sa akin πŸ₯΄πŸ₯΄πŸ₯΄

Umabot na nga sa point na ayoko na sana uminom kasi ang puti ko na pero talagang pag lumaki ang pimple ko at nakakakita ako ng dry skin tapos naglalagas nanaman buhok ko .. napapainom ako agad agad.

I’m not saying na ito ang best vitamins kung may sakit ka o need mo ng bitamina pampalakas, I’m saying na kung malakas ka naman and not exposed outside, ito ang best alternative kung problema mo rin ang problema ko. Pwede rin siguro siyang i-alternate with Potencee Forte na may 1000mg (pero watch out for weight gain).

Meron pong nabibiling collagen drink, collagen lotion etc. Pero dahil di ko naman po sadyang madiskubre na TOTOO pala ang magic ng collagen, mas nagustuhan ko na po ang Poten-cee with collagen (faster absorption). Sila po kasi talaga ang pair. In 3 to 5 days, makikita niyo po ang difference. Kung achieve na ang fairer skin, i-STOP niyo na po.. unless clearer skin ang hanap niyo like me 😊

  1. Super love the legs Ms. Japs. And ako din po I’ll go for clear skin any time of the day. Lalo ngayon sobrang dami ng breakouts ko because of my pregnancy. My mom has been a fan pf collagen na po for years, and I’ve been eager to try din po. Okay lang po ba to take potencee + collagen kahit preggy and nagpapabreastfeed? Pag yes po papabili na ako agad agad, mamaya. 😍 Happy Friday Ms. Japs. ❀️


  2. Yay ! gusto ko yung benefits talaga like no hair fall, palpitations, getting stronger and of course losing weight ❀️
    Balik loob ako kay Potencee and this time wd collagen na though i wonder if okay kahit na i still bfeed ng toddler? really want tlaga that kind of change .

    and thank you dahil may living proof talaga, feels convincing talaga for some to try if products were tested na.

    I don’t like sticky feeling Ng lotion sa skin, mainit kasi sa bahay kaya i don’t actually put any huhu.


    1. Agree. Kaya nga kakabilib na pag may collagen.. pwde na pala ang lotion-free skin pag weekdays 😁 and yes sa hair na less fall out. Pero sa breastfeeding.. ask doctor talaga πŸ€— thanks for dropping by
