Welcome to The Fruit Compote, the place where I’ll be putting my thoughts in, mainly beauty-related. Although, anything is possible at this moment, really.

Why the name, you say? Aside from being a complete hard-head not wanting anything literal, I thought this was very fitting. The word “compote” itself simply means a mixture. The fruit represents myriad of objects, including the color of my lipsticks and my skincare stash.

I love skincare and makeup. Clearly, skin first. I curate my skincare routine to suit my skin’s needs that can change in a blink of an eye. Seriously, I can grow a blemish in a few hours within the day. Hence, the mass amount of products with different purposes and levels of potency. I’m taking every detail to the T. I do believe skincare is an investment intertwined with heck a lot of commitment. If you’re looking for instant results, then look somewhere else. But if you’re in it for the long run, let’s walk together.

Most of the time, I source out my selection overseas, because the local offerings still aren’t good enough. It’s tough when you’re being offered pretty much the same thing for years. I don’t want my hands to be tied that way, so I go out to different lengths at getting them. I need to have a chemistry with a product before making a purchase and it’s not the easiest thing, but it’s always fun. I like having standards and that’s how I acquire a “taste” in sifting through millions of products to procure what I want.

I created this blog as an outlet, fruit of my thoughts. And yes, that is a major-pun intended. Taking care of my skin has changed my life and the way I appreciate myself. By sharing it, I have also found new friends and opportunities along the way. So it’s only natural if I received PR samples from time-to-time. But I give you my word that it will not affect the way I write. My opinions will always be honest.

You can read my previous writings over here at FemaleDaily.com. Do check it out though, so you can prepare yourself about what’s to come.

Grab a bowl!

P.S. I’d describe my skin as combination/sensitive, oilier in T-zone + cheeks and normal everywhere else. Lots of hyperpigmentation. Prone to dehydration. Redness and sudden tiny blemishes are a common scene. More often than not, hormones and environment play a big hand in the way my skin behaves.

    1. Hi,

      Thank you for reading my blog.

      Please keep in mind that I am not a dermatologist or an expert. I share reviews and insights based on my own experiences using products on my own skin.

      Since you’re on a pregnancy program, I highly suggest to consult with your own doctor before using any skincare products as there are several ingredients that are off limits.You can also do your own research as well and prep yourself. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

      Hope that helps :)
