Uniqlo U 2018 Fall/Winter Collection

by 2:02 PM
UNIQLO announces that it will roll out the Uniqlo U 2018 Fall/Winter collection. The collection represents a commitment to reinventing basics as the future of LifeWear. Last August 8, 2018, me and my blogger friends witnessed the collection and tried them.

The Christophe Lemaire-led design team at the UNIQLO Paris R&D Center is constantly evolving its advanced ideas for the Uniqlo U designs, patterns, fabric development, and sewing techniques. Since the line’s debut two years ago, its mainstay items have become even more attractive, with its innovations transforming into contemporary essentials. 

The latest collection features a vivid fall and winter color palette and designs with in-trend volumes. It is elegantly timeless while showcasing diverse ideas that symbolize the future of LifeWear.

The collection features brilliant reds and fuchsias as rich and warm accents that symbolize the coming of fall. The styling for this season emphasizes volume through dolman sleeves for women’s fleece blousons and boxy silhouettes for men’s fleece jackets. Women’s items exude comfort and confidence, while men’s pieces convey unpretentious relaxation.

The range includes men’s and women’s BLOCKTECH coats that is water repellent and wind proofed. Women’s coats wick away inside moisture and have snap-on hoods, with hem slits that enhance comfort when walking or seated. This season sees 3D knits employing advanced WHOLEGARMENT technology for beautiful silhouettes that are also comfortable. There are two dress and three sweater designs for women. A special spinning technique has resulted in raised looks and soft textures in mélange sweaters. There are also sweaters with vintage-style link knitting and items in comfortable ponte fabrics. The availability of items in-stores will be announced at a later date.

The Paris R&D Center complements UNIQLO’s other research and development offices in Tokyo, Shanghai, New York, and Los Angeles. While functioning as product design centers that work collaboratively across the world, these offices also gather information on local fashion trends, lifestyles and new materials.

Profile of Christophe Lemaire 

Christophe Lemaire has been designing his namesake collection since 1991 and has served as Artistic Director of Lacoste and Artistic Director of women’s ready-to-wear at Hermès. In 2015 he partnered with UNIQLO resulting in the UNIQLO AND LEMAIRE collaboration collections for Fall/Winter 2015 and Spring/Summer 2016. Christophe Lemaire was appointed Artistic Director of the UNIQLO Paris R&D Center in 2016, where he and his handpicked team of designers create the Uniqlo U collection.

I personally think that the Fall/Winter Collection of Uniqlo is super trendy and comfy. I enjoyed trying them out during the event and spotted my personal favorites! How about you? What would you wear from this collection?

World-class Natural Remedy for Filipina Beauty & Wellness Expert’s Crowning Glory

by 9:15 PM

Hair loss is a concern for both men and women. It can have a devastating effect to anyone who experiences it. 

According to Web MD, the average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair and loses up to 100 of them a day, which is normal. As people age, their rate of hair growth slows, and they can experience losing more than hundreds of strands which is quite alarming. So what can you do to prevent it? 

For beauty and wellness expert, Cory Quirino, embracing wellness is the first step to help improve the hair’s condition and make people look younger. “If you choose to have a wellness lifestyle, then expect wonderful changes such as radiant skin, energy, and a general sense of well-being,” she emphasizes. “In time, you will realize that you have successfully delayed the aging process.”

The beauty and wellness expert says that choosing wellness as a lifestyle includes eating nutritious food, exercising, getting a good sleep, drinking generous amounts of water, managing stress, getting enough sunshine, and above all, staying positive. 

On top of a daily healthy regimen, a supplement is necessary to maintain a healthy hair and scalp. Many people opt to use chemical-based products. But for her, the use of natural products is a must and the best solution for hair loss.

“There are hair treatment products in the market today that claim to be effective but their ingredients could contain chemicals that may prove harmful with long-term use,” she enthuses. “Choose natural. Say NO to harsh chemicals and let nature do the makeover,” she emphasizes.

Natural ingredients such as virgin coconut oil (VCO) and aloe vera are loaded with beneficial properties, which boost the health of the scalp and hair. These and much more natural herbs and essential oils can be found in NOVUHAIR, a topical scalp lotion with 19 natural ingredients that work in synergy to help prevent hair loss, which the beauty and wellness expert approves of.

“Even if I have been blessed with thick hair, I know that it has to be cared for,” she maintains. “I use NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion once daily in the evening before bedtime. Next morning, I apply it on my scalp again, then a shampoo after 30 minutes. Those who wish to further thicken the hair, it is a must to also use the shampoo and conditioner daily.”  
Eventually, she noticed impressive effects after using this breakthrough product: significant lessening of hair fall, abundant growth of tress, and the return of locks’ luster.

Apart from being effective, it’s a very safe solution, too. A local clinical study has proven that NOVUHAIR has no adverse side effects with continuous use. 
Moreover, NOVUHAIR is not just for those who experience hair loss. Younger people, especially the millennials, can use it for maintenance or prevention if hair loss runs in the family.

Cory recommends NOVUHAIR to everyone, especially to those who want to maintain their hair the best way they can. For her, this globally-competitive natural product answers the needs of a discriminating, health-conscious public.

Born on August 11, the granddaughter of the late Philippine President Elpidio Quirino is an author, and television and radio host. She has been a strong advocate for natural health, beauty, and wellness for more than two decades.

“Twenty years ago, it was as simple a goal as weight loss. But when I saw the dramatic effect it had on my vitality and complexion, I knew that this was the good path to take. For those who wish the same things I wanted then, this would be just as easy to embrace,” Cory recalls.

She wrote a series of best-seller books entitled “Forever Young”, which feature beauty and health tips as well as her own workout programs. Likewise, she also made a fitness video called “Cory Quirino’s Celebrity Workout for Beginners”.

For her, living in the 21st century has its challenges. She says: “The best way to live long and be well is to live a natural life.” 

Truly, for a natural woman like Cory, her crowning glory deserves nothing but a world-class natural remedy that is NOVUHAIR.

NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. You may also have the product delivered right at your doorstep through Lazada at https://bit.ly/2Jc92Vk

J. Cat’s New Campaign Wants You To Turn Up The Volume and Be Bolder

by 8:05 PM

Makeup has always been a form of self-expression. Whether you use makeup for your profession, as a hobby, or even as therapy, makeup lets you show off your personality and uniqueness in a way that nothing else truly can. So, with everything that makeup can offer—why not dial up the boldness of your look and turn up the volume?

Feel Good, Look Good, and Break the Rules

Since its founding in 2012, J. Cat has bewitched beauty enthusiasts worldwide with its rich color pay-off, fun products, and vegan and cruelty-free lines that encourage both newbies and pros to break the mold and create their own fearless looks. All of J. Cat’s products are free of phthalates, sulfates, GMO’s, Triclosan (a preservative) and other toxic chemicals. Its nail polishes are also free from formaldehyde and toluene, while also being cruelty-free and budget friendly.

J. Cat knows that real beauty comes from within, but what sets J. Cat apart is its ability to help makeup junkies and newbies transform and express all their many facetsInfluencers and celebrities from all over the world have continued to rave about J. Cat and its inventive campaigns. Online stars like Desi Perkins, Michelle Phan, and Tati Westbrook plus big-time celebs like our very own Arci Munoz are fans who love how J. Cat has finally found the perfect way to give high-quality product without breaking the bank.

Amplify Your Makeup and Switch Up the Dial on Beauty

Since being introduced to the Philippine market in 2017, Filipino beauty enthusiasts (including me) have been privy to a massive slew of products that cater to every look from the Rock Maiden to the Rainbow Reign.

This year, though, J. Cat invites a bigger and more fearless approach to makeup with its newest campaign called Turn Up the Volume. While their staple products still enable you to nail every and any look that fits your fancy, J. Cat wants you to make 2018 the year you start your new makeup adventure as they give you the tools and inspiration to take charge and have the choice to be as bold as you want.

Turn Up the Volume invites makeup lovers from all walks of life to take a step out of their comfort zone by making their everyday bolder. Whether that’s a new addition of a pop of color on your neutral-shaded lids, a full-blown rainbow lip for your evening out, or a versatile look that will easily transform and take you from day to night with just a few strokes and dabs of daring hues—J. Cat can elevate your go-to looks and dial up the boldness.

J. Cat’s newest campaign underscores the uniqueness within us all and encourages users to let out their inner J. Cat kitten—the undeniable club chic life-of-the-party who isn’t afraid to explore the different volumes of bold beauty that J. Cat beauty can take them to.

Take Risks and Turn Up

That’s why last July 19, 2018 at Poblacion’s Dulo MNL, five of the biggest and most innovative MUAs came together to amp up the volume to show how to break makeup rules and, instead, make your own! It’s a multi-sensory experience that showcases various areas, each with its own distinct look and persona that’ll transport you into J. Cat’s loud and proud world.

J. Cat’s Turn Up the Volume campaign launch was an immersive activity at every corner that just begs to be Instagrammed. This retro club-esque event was filled with holo, neon lights, plush chill-out spots, specially-curated food and cocktails, pumped-up music, addictive games, exclusive giveaways, and of course, tons of makeup, that’ll turn up the volume from timid and tame to audacious and unapologetic. Me and my closest blogger and online content creator friends had a night full of colors, boldness, and music!

Turn Up the Dial with Five Volumes of Beauty

Each of our five MUAs have their own stations. Within these five stations, you’ll get millions of colors, and countless makeup inspirations as a live model gets the full treatment with each makeup artist.

Volume 1- "Pop of Color": At Teena Arches’ (one of my besties in the industry) station see how you can control the dial on your everyday makeup by learning how to play with those colors that you might normally intimidate you. This look can take you from day to night and will make brown and hazel eyes pop!

Volume 2- "Dare to Sparkle": The 2nd featured MUA, Hanna Pechon will demonstrate how to incorporate glitter into your go-to look. With inspo coming straight from cats with eyes of different hues, this’ll give the windows to your soul a whole new spirit.

Volume 3- "Color Me Bold": With Jherome Ramos will showcase a look based off the J.Cat girls’ essence: the fearless, loud, and bustling life of the party. A play on the some of J.Cat’s greatest hits; a medley of smoky burgundy colors and deep lip shades that’ll be perfect for every night out on the town and out of your comfort zone.

Volume 4- "Hologlam": Katchie Mejias will be dedicated to all things holo! As a nod to the early 70s, this look combines the past with a futuristic twist that is also partly inspired by the multi-dimensional iridescence of the sea.

Volume 5- "Full On Club Chic": Last but not the least, Min Ortiz, see how to nab that mermaid-inspired look that’s been all over the Net, with edgy holographic accents and dark seductive lips that will have you looking beat to the gods!

Enter the J.Cat Experience

Each station placed the spotlight on how to use some of J. Cat’s most popular products like; Lipfinity Matte Lipsticks, Eyeshadow Palettes, Liquid Highlighters, Flash Metal, Holo Toppers, Rock Glitz Eyeliners, and many more. We had fun trying out the products, doing our own look and be bold!

“Forget that makeup is meant to disguise flaws, instead start looking at makeup as a way to highlight your unique personality and creativity,” said Bwelle Madera, president of Bwelle Store Enterprise, Inc., the official distributor of J. Cat in the Philippines. “Why stay stuck in your comfort zone when you can turn up the volume and enter a whole new world of color and self-expression?”

The Glutathione that I'm Currently Using

by 1:56 PM
A lot of people are asking me if it is okay to try different brands of glutathione. Well, that's the hardest part of being a beauty b/vlogger that I really enjoy! I love trying out new products and to be honest, it is not always Christmas when it comes to reviewing products. There are products that can do harm on our skin especially if you are not "hiyang" with the product that you are currently testing out. What can I do? I love sharing you my experiences whether it is good or bad. I am always transparent to you in every product reviews because you deserve it guys! And you know for sure that I am enjoying this whole thing that I am doing. Yes, I am willing to sacrifice my own skin just so you can have a guide in trying different skincare or makeup products.

I would like to express my sweet thanks to everyone who's contentiously trusting me and who's there with me in my journey of trying different things. I recently reached 50,000 subscribers in my YouTube Channel. In case you are not aware, each and everyone of you matters to me so thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. If you are not yet subscribed to my channel, "Click here".

Going back, I am receiving a lot of requests to try a specific brand and stick to it for a long time so I can see its fullest effect, if that specific product can deliver amazing result in the long run. So I thought, hmm.. why not! I want to give it a go since I haven't done it yet. The longest period that I stayed to one brand of glutathione was 2 months if I am not mistaken.

After thorough thinking what glutathione to try and stick to it for at least half a year, I have finally decided to try Glutaredox! Glutaredox is a groundbreaking supplement that gives the same effect of a glutathione injection in a simple sublingual tablet. Its patented formulation of a high concentration of reduced Glutathione, Vitamin C, Selenium and L-Cysteine along with its Oro-FS-Release technology assures a 100% absorption rate which makes it superior.

This is not a new product to me because I already finished two boxes of this amazing product. Why did I choose it? Well, I super love the effect of this product on me because after finishing two boxes, it whitened my complexion. If you haven't watched my first review about Glutaredox, just "click here" so you'll understand why I am so in love with this glutathione pill.

I am inviting all of you to please join me and support me in my journey of taking Glutaredox. This is also a challenge to me since it is really my first time to stick to one brand of oral glutathione. My heart is full of excitement and I am looking forward to see amazing results in the next months. I will definitely keep you updated regarding the progress of this challenge so make sure to follow me on all of my social media handles and subscribe to my YouTube channel.

I created a video wherein I am explaining more about this challenge. If you are interested to watch, just play the video below and subscribe. :)

By the way, Glutaredox is available in Lazada (click here) for only P2,380. To know more about Glutaredox, visit http://www.skitty.com.ph/

Red Tomato Skincare Set Review by Jay Jay

by 7:02 PM
I asked Jay Jay—member of our group (#VanityFriends) to review the Red Tomato Skincare Set. I asked them to share their skincare concerns on one of my posts and I chose Jay's comment so I sent him the Red Tomato Skincare Set. And now, after finishing the entire set, Jay sent back to me his write-up (review) so I can share it here in our awesome blog.


First of all, I would like to grab this opportunity to thank Bes MJ for choosing me to do a product review for the month. :) I am really thrilled to try out this Red Tomato Set since I am very cautious and picky when it comes to choosing the right skin care product for my delicate skin. For everyone’s knowledge, I would like to share that my skin type is oily and very sensitive. That is why when I received the Red Tomato Set, I tried it immediately without any hesitation because I know the benefits of the Tomato in our body and I cannot wait to see its actual effects on my skin. Without further ado, I am going to share with you all an in-depth review of the Red Tomato by Venice within 2 weeks of using it.


If you are an avid fan of using soap as a facial wash, then this Soap is the best for you. What makes this soap excellent is that its primary ingredient is Real Tomato Extract which means it contains Vitamins A, C, E, Lycopene and Zea-xanthin, all of which contributes to make your skin brighter, glowing, and protects you from unwanted free radicals. On top of that it also has several other ingredients to maximize and further its nutritional benefits on your skin. The other ingredients are Coconut Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Coffee bits (which helps exfoliate dead skin cells). The soap promises to instantly brighten your skin, lighten scars, melasma, and dark spots. It also addresses your skin break-outs.

Upon opening the box, I have noticed that it is neatly packaged in a transparent wrapper. It also has a fruity aroma that is quite addictive. The color of the soap is combination of pink and red. I use the soap twice a day, in the morning and evening since it is very gentle on the skin. It provides an immediate clean smooth feeling after every wash. By using the soap within two weeks, I have noticed a big improvement on my skin: it lightened my existing pimple scars and dark spots, my skin looks brighter and glowing, and finally it minimized my pores (This is very important since men in general has larger pores than women)


The Red Tomato Toner has a handful of promising benefits on the skin. Among its benefits are the following: it removes deep-seated dirt, eliminates pimples, effectively whitens, fights skin aging, eliminates wrinkles and fine lines, tightens pores, restores skin’s PH balance, moisturizes and refreshes your skin, and it containes Lycopene, water, collagen and glutathione. However, it is not indicated on the label of the Toner. It would have been better if they have included it since most consumers are meticulous when it comes to the contents of the products they are using. Gladly, there is information available on the web about the Toner.

The first time I used the toner, my skin reacted to it since it is a new product. For the first few days, there are red patches scattered on my face (possibly allergic reactions) after every application. There is a disclaimer in the label though that when allergic reaction appears, discontinue using it. However, I am confident that this is normal for me since I have tried various products before and it takes a while before my skin gets used to a new product. The toner comes in a 250ml bottle just like any other toners in the market. As per instruction in the label, you let the toner dry up on your skin for a minute before applying the Red Tomato Serum. This will allow for the absorption of the toner on your skin. It has a natural floral aroma that is soothing to the senses. The fluid is clear with tiny red bits that most likely resemble tomato extracts since it is made up of Tomato.

It took almost two weeks before my skin got used to this product. I use the toner with a cotton ball and gently pat it on my face in circular motion focusing on the cheeks, hairline, and dark spots on my face. Right now, my skin is already compatible with the Toner. No more red patches. And the results are visible. My skin is evidently glowing and whiter than before. The toner has also helped minimize my pores. Also, the best thing about this product is that it is organic. I use it twice a day after washing my face off with the Red Tomato Soap.


The Red Tomato Serum is actually the first serum that I have used on my face. I have tried several moisturizers before but I am ecstatic about trying out this Serum since just like the Soap and the Toner, it is pretty much made up of the same ingredients.

The Serum comes in an elegant small plastic pump bottle tightly sealed which is impressive since it preserves the quality of the product. However, when I opened it up and tried to pump out the serum, nothing came out. I ended up opening the bottle only to find out that the serum appeared to be like a dormant cooking oil. The serum became so viscous that it cannot be dispensed through the dip tube. Look at the picture below.

Since I cannot pump out the serum, I just scoop it out from the bottle using the dip tube and apply an ample amount on my face. In a circular motion, I spread it gently on my face. What I like most about this serum is that it has a menthol and soothing effect on the skin and it serves as a moisturizer. I apply it twice a day after using the Red Tomato Toner. Within 2 weeks, its effects on my skin are already visible.

Overall, the Red Tomato Set by Venice is a great product for everyday use. What sets it apart from other cosmetic kits is that is is organic which means it not harmful to the skin. Furthermore, it efficiently and effectively delivers its promises provided that you are religiously using it day and night. It surely gives its contemporaries a run for their money.

What Are Timeless’ Best Products That Prevent Breakouts?

by 3:24 PM

Preventing acne breakouts is an essential criterion for skin care products made for teenagers.  Adolescents are not the only people who look for skin care products that will prevent breakouts, though.  Timeless Skin Care has recently added Pure Squalane Oil to its inventory of anti-aging skin care products.  This way, customers who want to prevent wrinkles and fine lines can also keep acne pimples away.

What Is Squalane?

Squalane is a lubricating substance produced in small quantities by the sebaceous glands in the skin.  Cosmetic products that contain squalane have enhanced moisturizing ability without being prohibitively expensive.  Adding squalane oil to your skin care routine can help moisturize and protect your skin from acne breakouts.

How Do You Use Squalane Oil?

Squalane oil is part of the Pure line of Timeless skin care products.  In other words, the only ingredient is squalane oil; there are no fillers.  The squalane oil sold by Timeless is derived from olives, so it is 100 percent vegan.

You can use just three drops a day as a daily moisturizer.  Simply rub the squalane oil into the skin of your face; it will not leave an oily residue.  Timeless Squalane Oil is also an effective moisturizer when used in combination with other Timeless products.  Many customers like to use it in combination with Timeless Hyaluronic Acid Serum.  You can even add a few drops of Timeless Pure Squalane Oil to your favorite anti-aging skin care products.

Beyond Squalane

Squalane oil is not the only pure botanical ingredient you can find at the Timeless site.  You can also find Pure Argan Oil.  Even the combination products have only the ingredients you need.  Therefore, you can always trust Timeless products to be light and efficient.  Explore the Timeless product line to find the right skin care routine for you.
