CBTL's Swirl Rewards Card

I don’t exactly know why I like Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CBTL) better than other coffee shops. It may be the homey ambiance, feel-good music or simply the excellent coffee and tea concoctions.

I love coffee. And I feel like I’m starting to fall in love with tea. That’s why I decided to get a Swirl Rewards Card. For P195, I think the perks that come with the card were worth it – free WiFi access at any CBTL branch and merchant discounts (I just hope they will get more participating merchants).

I joined the BB cream bandwagon

I am not a fan of make-ups especially foundations and other creams that make me look and feel heavily made-up. I am a white shirt-jeans-slippers girl wearing moisturizer-powder-blush-lip gloss on a typical day (you get the picture). So when I first heard of BB cream from my sister, I had second thoughts on trying it out. The thought of “cream” alone makes me think of whiteheads and breakouts.

So, I did a little research first and found out that BB cream actually stands for “blemish balm cream.” According to online sources, this cream is originally used in Germany by laser skin surgery patients as a medical, not cosmetic, product to heal their skin imperfections. The Koreans turned the cream into a cosmetic product known today as “ the secret” of Korean celebrities.
