Watsons Haul: QuickFX Beauty Essentials

I've been visiting Watsons every week looking out for products to use on my face and then weighing out if it's worth trying or not. At first, I was hesitant to try the QuickFX products because it is cheaper and only have sachets. But it is great though if you want to try it at first without costing too much on your beauty budget. Still, I need to see reviews first. Searching on youtube, I stumble upon vlogs of Anne Klutz which is useful enough since she's using the products live! She has a review of QuickFX No Shine Mattifier.

QuickFX Haul at Watsons

On my next visit, I grab these three products of QuickFX: No Shine Mattifier, Pimple Erase and the latest one, CC Cream (yay! I don't have to buy the Shawill CC Cream!)

QuickFX No Shine Mattifier
  • Dewy like gel that smoothens my face leaving a powder like finish
  • Easy to blend and easily dry up
  • Lasts up to 5 hours
  • Soft and supple face upon application
  • Affordable and available on Watsons (easily sold out since it's really perfect primer on the go!)

Upon watching Ann Klutz video, she said that it works as a primer which is only new to me. I don't usually use primer when applying make up on my face and maybe that is one of the reasons I ended up retouching from time to time.

So this No Shine Mattifier is a great primer and I achieved my No Make Up Make Up look everyday!

QuickFX CC Cream
  • Grayish white in appearance
  • Has yellowish pigments when blended
  • Separating little oil substance
  • Smells goods

I learned that having a primer first has really it's pros and cons before applying cream or make up on your face. Here's my comparison.

Using QuickFX CC Cream without No Shine Mattifier
  • Does not dry up easily and a little bit sticky
  • Blends well on skintone but not leaving a smooth finish
  • Does not work well with pressed powder
  • Photo-ready but oily

with QuickFX No Shine Mattifier + CC Cream

Using QuickFX CC Cream with No Shine Mattifier First
  • Adds smooth finish and doesn't crack up
  • Dries up easily, blends well and not oily
  • It doesn't crack up or messed up even if I applied powder or even sunblock afterwards
  • Super smooth and supple face upon application
  • Super Photo ready leaving your face with a No Make Up Make Up look
  • Great for everyday use
  • After 5 hours of exposing to sunlight or daylight, I have to apply pressed powder for retouching of re-apply sunblock if the sun's still up

QuickFX Pimple Eraser
Although I am on my Maxipeel Journey, there are dark spots from time to time and a little pimple breaking out so I decided to use the Pimple Eraser to see if I can rely on it for emergency purposes or can help me out on eliminating the dark spots on my face.

  • It has no smell and white in color
  • Has a little stinging sensation and cool effect
  • It dries up easily and easy to blend on affected areas
  • Use it twice a day for effectiveness

Here's my before and after photos of using the Pimple Eraser after having 2 big zits before my menstruation period. I actually pop it out (yes, I can't resist of popping them from time to time) that's why you can see that it has appeared reddish on the next picture. But what I really notice is it helps me
to eliminate the dark spots on my chin.
Can you see the difference?

I hope that you guys are satisfied with my review. I am definitely keeping this stash on my beauty kit and recommend it to my friends! There are still other products of QuickFX (Tinted Moisturizer and EyeLift Cream) that I would like to try but I am sticking to this first haul first or who knows, maybe on my next visit or after Anne Klutz review of those products.

  1. Haven't tried it yet. But I'd love to try a CC cream. I've used up my Celeteque BB cream, I'm now using Dermcare Sunblock Foundation and ditched BB cream for now. Hehe

    1. It's a little tricky to blend the CC Cream though :)

  2. Wow, the pimple erases looks effective! Must try it!

    1. I recently discover that it is more effective to use the NO SHINE MATTIFIER for pimples. I just dab a little on pimples after washing my face at night. It works much better compare to Pimple Eraser plus it lightens pimple marks too.


Thanks for reading my blog! I'd love to hear from you!
