Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

by 3:26 PM
Facial cleansers are super trendy this season, but if you're really looking to take proper care of your skin, micellar water is a real game-changer. However, not all micellar waters are created equal so it's crucial to find one that is really suitable to your skin type.

Since I have combination skin type, I am currently loving the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (Blue) because this one is intended for oily to combination skin types. There's also a pink variant for normal to dry skin types.

What?
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review


All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover. Cleanses + removes even waterproof makeup + refreshes. No rinse, no harsh rubbing. For face, lips, and eyes.



How to Use:

Shake Well 

TO REMOVE EYE MAKEUP:
Hold pad over closed eyes for a few seconds, then gently wipe without harsh rubbing. 

TO CLEAN SKIN & REMOVE FACE MAKEUP:

Gently wipe all over until skin is completely clean from makeup and impurities. Use daily, AM/PM. No need to rinse.

Where to buy?
Watsons and supermarkets nationwide

How much?
P149.00 (125ml)

I don't wear much makeup and as much as possible, I'm avoiding wearing one. But due to my nature of work, I need to wear makeup whenever I'm attending events and press conferences for me to look more presentable and professional.



Though it's true that I don't wear much makeup compared to girls, I still need a good makeup remover to help me get rid of any trace of cosmetics on my face, especially most of the guys have oily skin and we need thicker or matte foundation to get a nice shine-free look all throughout the day. As we all know, matte foundations are really hard to remove and it penetrates deep to the skin so a facial soap or cleanser is surely not enough.

What I like about Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is its ability to remove my foundation completely in just one swipe so I won't have to rub my face many times just to get rid of the foundation. Doing so can also lead to skin irritation and acne breakout.

It's a fragrance free cleanser and it feels just like your regular water but better. It has no cooling or stinging effect on the skin which I super duper love. I also like the fact that this product has the ability to matiffy the skin after use. True enough, there's no trace of oil after using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.

The selling point of this product for me is it didn't cause me acne breakout. Since I have a sensitive skin, I'm always on a hunt for a product that does not cause acne and I'm glad I found this Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.

I actually featured this product on my Skincare routine video in my YouTube channel. Please watch here:



What about you? What is your favorite makeup remover? I wanna know so please share it in the comment box below. :)

Uratex Promotes the Value of Sharing Moments Together

by 10:57 AM
Filipinos enjoy cherishing the times we share with family, friends, and loved ones especially during the holiday season. For the majority, the best memories are created inside the bedroom where family members bond or catch up with each other before they call it a day. 

Giving salute to the importance of family traditions, Uratex, who is celebrating 50 years this 2018 unveiled a Christmas-themed video to celebrate family memories made inside the bedroom, their common area of solitude, and the bed, a central and key witness to that celebration.




The video starts by showing a young man longing for the love and company of their mother, supposedly an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW). He has not seen her as she has not come home for the past three years working overseas. Not a day passes that the young man misses his mother, where he shared many fun and memorable moments with her while at his bedroom during his childhood. And now that Christmas is near, the longing is felt more than ever. 

Meanwhile, the young man’s elder brother also does his best to overcome his yearning for their mother’s presence by focusing all his strength on his job. He silently cares for his brother’s needs and sees to it that his younger brother continues to strive to be the best individual that he can be. But like his younger brother, he misses his mother as well. 

Alas, their wish was granted on Christmas Day when, as they try to celebrate Christmas just like in the previous years without their mother, they were pleasantly surprised with her arrival. The joy in the younger brother’s eyes was evident with their mother’s presence in a special time such as Christmas, finally, as one family. 

For the elder brother, the arrival of their mother was the perfect time to tell her that he is now ready to take on the responsibility of caring for the family’s needs. With their mother’s long-awaited homecoming, it will be the perfect opportunity to create new memories again together—as one family.

Uratex Philippines, the undisputed leader in the foam manufacturing industry believes that family love and comfort are always at the forefront in the tradition of selfless care and service to the Filipinos. Uratex believes that family love, caring and looking out for the welfare and greater comfort of each other is vital.  Each Uratex bed provides ultimate comfort to promote a healthful and relaxed sleep night after night. This helps invigorate the body so it will remain fit and fully charged to make each family member ready to face life’s daily challenges. 



For Uratex founders Robert and Natividad Y. Cheng, the products that they’ve developed over the past five decades have been uncompromising when it comes to celebrating the beauty of love and life. Each mattress that rolls out of the company’s manufacturing facilities is the result of the Chengs’ vision to share comfort with every Filipino. With constant innovation, Uratex products remain synonymous to rest and relaxation, love and comfort. 

After their mother’s arrival, what special Yuletide celebration awaits the two sons? Watch this special video courtesy of Uratex Philippines produced by Mode Devi Media Group in collaboration with Project Geekid Productions and Wonderlast Film:

Snow Skin Whitening Cream/Lotion/Toner/Soap Review

by 6:07 PM
I have been wanting to try this product since last year (2016) because I have been hearing a lot of positive feedback about this set. However, because I have so much whitening products sent by PR companies, I didn't get the chance to purchase this product because I felt that there were too much in my plate already and spending money for another whitening product wasn't a good idea at all.

Last October 2017, I had the chance to use these products because I really can't help but to try them because a lot of my blogger friends are raving about it. So yeah, I gave in and surrendered whatever it is that I'm using during that time to give way to this famous Snow Skin Whitening line.



What?
Snow Skin Whitening Cream/Lotion/Toner/Soap Review



Snow Skin Whitening Products contain 7 Skin Whitening Actives that whiten and lighten the skin while reversing skin problems such as dark spots, age spots, acne marks, old scars, uneven skin tone and melasma.

Where to buy?
It is more affordable in Lazada "Click here"

Before we start, I just wanna let you know that I won't be focusing on the ingredients and benefits of each products. You can find those in their Lazada shop by clicking "here". I want this review to be focused on what I like and I don't like about each products.


Snow Skin Whitening Soap


What I like: It's really a mild whitening soap. I rarely use whitening soap on my face and if you guys are following me ever since, you probably know that already. I like how it actually makes my face squeaky clean every after wash without sucking all the moisture on my face. My face looks glowing after washing with Snow Skin Whitening Soap.


What I don't like: It's not producing generous amount of bubbles. I mean there is, but for me it's not enough hahaha. I know, I'm weird AF. ^_^


Snow Skin Whitening Toner


What I like: This is an ice cold liquid toner fresh from the fridge! Literally, it's the coolest toner I have ever tried. Its coldness is in extreme level! As we all know, even just a cold water has the ability to close our open pores and this product just does that. I feel that my face is smoother and better to touch after a month of using the Snow Skin Whitening Toner.

What I don't like: Because it's so damn cold and it has that minty feel whenever I'm applying this product, I get tears until the product is fully absorbed by my skin.




Snow Skin Whitening Cream


What I like: First of all, I so love the packaging of this product because it comes in a small airless dispenser. Its pump and transparent plastic crown makes the product undeniably hygienic. This is actually my most favorite from the Snow Skin Whitening set because it's very lightweight and not sticky at all. It doesn't cause me acne and most importantly, it brightened up my skin.

What I don't like: NONE


Snow Skin Whitening Lotion


What I like: This has the same packaging as the Snow Skin Whitening Cream the only difference is that, this one is taller, of course. And just like the cream, this lotion is very lightweight and not sticky at all. I love its smell because it relaxes me every time I'm applying this lotion specially during night time. I noticed that my skin is lighter and more glowing compared before. I think it was able to make my skin a shade lighter after finishing one big bottle.

What I don't like: Bottle is too big but I don't mind it at all.

All in all, this Snow Skin Whitening line is superb! It's the skincare line that is true to its claims and I'm really willing to repurchase it. I highly recommend these products to you my #VanityFriends most importantly to those who are looking for some whitening products that is suitable for acne-prone skin. This is a must try skincare line!

I actually featured these products on my skincare routine video in my YouTube channel. Please watch it here:

Philippines sheds off nearly 1 million lbs with the help of FitFil National Weight Loss Challenge

by 9:05 PM
In May 2017, the Fit Filipino Movement (FitFil) spearheaded by celebrity fitness coaches Jim and Toni Saret (“Biggest Loser Philippines Season 2”) sought to achieve their most challenging goal: to rally the entire Philippines to shift to an active lifestyle and collectively lose one million pounds.

Now, six (6) months later, the FitFil National Weight Loss Challenge has come to a close and the verdict is out: the Philippines has collectively shed nearly one million pounds in just half a year!


The announcement was made during the movement’s culminating event, FWD’s Live to Move fitness party, held on December 3 at the Central Park, SM By the Bay, Mall of Asia.  The centerpiece of the event was the "Campaign Achievement Celebration," which highlighted the campaign's collective achievements and recognized the more than a hundred organizations, institutions, LGU partners, and companies which took part in the project. Present during the occasion were representatives from these partner-organizations including the Philippine Medical Association, Philippine National Police, National Youth Commission, among others.



Celebrity fitness coaches Jim and Toni proudly shared how the movement was able to achieve its objective of achieving its target in six months' time.


"It was a combined effort from everyone—individuals, groups, and partner organizations who pledged to lose weight by deciding it was time to adapt a more active lifestyle,” says Coach Jim. "But the mission has just started. We hope to see at least one million Filipinos more fit in three years' time.”

For her part, Coach Toni says, “Through the FitFil weight loss challenge, we hope to spread the message that being fit and well starts with a simple commitment and that includes taking ownership of your health.”

FWD Life Philippines, one of the country’s fastest growing insurance companies, is a proud partner of the FitFil movement.



“We at FWD fully support FitFilipino’s humble advocacy of getting everyone fit and well so Filipinos can really celebrate life. We will continue to encourage everyone to take part in a more active lifestyle and as our brand tagline goes, Get ready to live!” shares FWD Life Philippines Head of Marketing Rochelle Vandenberghe.


As an insurance industry pioneer in the space of health and wellness, FWD Life Philippines has been at the forefront of pushing more Filipinos to lead a healthier lifestyle. The company spearheaded the “Live to Move” movement in 2015, a nationwide wellness project inspired by the virtue that achieving better health is key in getting ready to live life to the fullest.

My First Ever Meet & Greet at Dong Juan Mother Ignacia

by 3:04 PM
Not so long ago, I decided to level up my personality as a talkative person so I launched my own blog so I can share more of my life experiences about anything under the sun. I didn't expect that people will love the quirky personality that I show on my blog posts and YouTube videos. Thank you guys for supporting me since 2014 and I am looking forward for more years of product reviews, daily vlogs and more kulitan with you guys. :)



Celebrating my third blogging anniversary wouldn't be complete without the delicious foods and amazing ambiance from Dong Juan Mother Ignacia branch. The restaurant was originated from Cebu, and is located in front of St. Mary's College.


DONG JUAN MOTHER IGNACIA



72 Mother Ignacia Ave. cor. Scout Reyes, Quezon City
Contact: 0956 958 7796 or 02 374 0265
They are open Monday to Sunday from 11AM to 11PM

I first tasted their famous Burger Steak during the launch of their Marikina branch where I was invited. I was really impressed with the way they serve their burger steak and I said to myself that my #VanityFriends should try it so I decided to celebrate my 3rd blogging anniversary at their Quezon City branch.

Upon entering the place, you can sense how passionate they are to make their guests feel at home. The restaurant's splendid interior design will surely bring back old memories where our grannies cook for us during special holidays. Seriously, that was the first thing that came in my mind when I saw the place. I felt like I wanna go back to the province to our ancestral house and ask my lola to cook for me. I felt comfortable and welcomed specially when their friendly staff greeted us. Take a look at these photos of their restaurant:












During our celebration, I ask the waiter to serve the pizza first as our appetizer. To be honest, this is one of the best pizzas I have ever tasted. It's not your regular pizza I must say.




Of course, I chose their famous burger steak as our main dish. Everyone enjoyed the juicy and huge serving of this special dish topped with Potato chips. I actually vlog about it, asking my #VanityFriends about the food. Please watch the video that I will embed at the latter part of this blog post.


The place is huge enough to accommodate us or even other special events. They have enough space and function rooms that can cater many people.

The best thing about Dong Juan (except from the food, of course) is their exceptional customer service and the passion they put in every dish they're serving. I highly recommend Dong Juan to everyone looking for a new place to dine. The foods and excellent service will surely give the best value for your money that will make your tummies very happy. :)


To know more about what happened during our celebration, please watch this fun vlog:

Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and Topical Scalp Solution First Impressions

by 2:32 PM
I wanna tell you a secret. I'm experiencing hair loss already! What? You might be thinking I'm too young for that but it's true! It may not be so obvious because I have naturally thick hair strands but you can notice it on my front head. It starting to have empty spaces and it's making me look like an E.T. Hahaha! ^_^



Since I don't wanna go totally bald, I'm really on a hunt for a product that can help me prevent hair loss. I found these Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and Topical Scalp Solution and I have been using them for almost two weeks now. In this blog post, allow me to share you my first impressions about these products.

What?
Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and Topical Scalp Solution



NOVUHAIR® HERBAL SHAMPOO has been specially developed to prepare your scalp in an optimal way for the application of NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion to enhance its effect and bring back the vibrancy and luster of your hair.

NOVUHAIR® TOPICAL SCALP LOTION is a unique combination of 19 natural ingredients and essential oils formulated to stop hair loss, proudly Philippine-made, developed by expert scientists and researchers, clinically proven safe and effective, produced in accordance to the highest quality specifications of the industry, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) registered, certified Halal by the Islamic Da’wah Council of the Philippines, Inc. (IDCP) and 100% compliant to the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive (ACD).

Where to buy?
Leading Drugstores nationwide

How much?
P4,980 (set of 2 Shampoos and 1 Scalp Solution)




I am suspecting that stress is causing me hair loss. To be honest, being a Blogger, Social Media Manager, YouTuber, and Head Technical Writer of the leading Online School for future programmers in the USA is not easy and it's causing me work stress very often. To make it clear, I'm not complaining, in fact, I love what I am doing because it's making me a living. However, you cannot avoid stress so it's important that you know how to control it.

As I have said, I have been using the Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and Topical Scalp Solution for more than 10 days now and so far, I am enjoying the products. I love the shampoo's organic smell because it energizes me every bath. The Scalp Solution on the other hand smells like an Acetone and I'm honestly not a fan of its fragrance but I don't mind it!

I noticed that I get less hair fall whenever I'm combing my hair (I would normally see a lot of hair falling) and it makes me wanna use the product more. I also notice that my hair strand is getting thicker compared before. I mean it was thick but it's really thicker now and shiny.



I will continue using these products for the coming days or months and I will surely keep you updated with the result. I will write another blog post regarding the progress of my semi-bald front head hehe. Please also cross your fingers for me for these products to work on my bald spots haha.
