How I Cleared My Acne in just 20 Days?

by 2:31 PM
I have been receiving a lot of compliments recently that my face is getting flawless, it makes me happy because I had been battling for acne for the longest time. I rarely see my face acne-free and to be honest, I am not sure how long the effect will last. I'm just enjoying this moment though because who knows I might get acne breakout soon right? But I'm crossing my fingers very tightly for that not to happen. Please NO!! :D

What?
How I Cleared My Acne in just 20 Days?

Product used?
Finessa Regimen Set

Finessa Regimen Set is made from the purest and finest ingredients that effectively helps to achieve a younger and lighter complexion. The Regimen Set includes: Gentle Soap, Gentle Toner, Radiance Cream, Blemish free cream and Sun Protect with SPF 30. Its active ingredients are: Hydroquinone and Tretinoin.

Where to buy?

How much?
P3,000




At first, I was thinking twice if I should give this product a go because I have tried different anti-acne sets and some of them gave me temporary but decent enough results. I was thinking if this product will make a difference and turn my face from sandpaper into a clean canvas. Another thing that I was considering is the ingredients. It contains hydroquinone and tretinoin which aren't good for long term use. Why? Because excessive usage of hydroquinone can result to skin burning, black discoloration, and many more.

Since I know my skin type and condition, I braved myself and gave this product a shot! Here's a tip: make sure that you know the ingredients and possible effects of each products you're using to avoid getting your skin into bigger trouble. Another thing that you must know is your skin type, sensitivity and condition. It is still better to consult your dermatologist if you want to undergo any treatment for your face. In my case, I consulted the resident dermatologist of Finessa Aesthetica Timog branch.



The Finessa Regimen Set contains: Kojic Acid soap, Gentle toner, Blemish-free cream (Hydroquinone), Radiance Cream (1% Tretinoin), and sunblock with SPF 30.

I documented my journey using the Finessa Regimen Set for 20 days. Please watch this video:

GMA Bloggers' Style Camp 2017

by 3:55 PM
Bloggers’ Style Camp is an artist building fashion photography competition which involves GMA Networks artists along with the country’s top entertainment, lifestyle, fashion and beauty bloggers. It also aims to strengthen the relationship of GMA with its online influencers through campaigning socially relevant advocacies. Each team had a roster of stylists, fashion and entertainment bloggers, as well as hair and makeup artists to come up with the campaign.


Last year, I was part of the winning team so this year's a little bit heavy for me and my teammates (Raiza Contawi, Princess Angeles, Raf Juane, Nina Rayos, John Michael Bueno, Michael Byx Almacen, Kate Adajar, Gracee Bongolan, and Rocky Chua Batara.




We brainstormed and conceptualized our campaign based on this year's theme which is about being a hero and fight against bullying—not only online but bullying in general. We decided to make our campaign simple yet very expressive, just like you and me, we are just a simple citizen of this nation but little did we know, there's a hero inside us and we can actually do something to eradicate bullying and spread love and heroism online and offline.



Here are some snippets of what happened behind the scene:

















After that daylong pictorial and conceptualization we can now finally taste the juice of our creativity as GMA releases the final outcome of both team's concepts. By the way, I belong to team Rainbow and here's our work:




The image symbolizes heroism and bravery in every individual no matter what your current economic and social status.


Together, we can use our voices to be a hero and fight against bullying. Vote for Team Rainbow now be visiting: "Click here". Let us spread love, positivity, and happiness, let's choose #HeartOverHate!

SkinWhite PowerWhitening Glutathione + Vitamin C Soap REVIEW

by 1:35 PM
I tried this whitening soap last year and I forgot to blog my review about it so here I am fulfilling that broken vow to myself haha. SkinWhite soaps are selling like hotcakes because of its broad advertisements, positive reviews from trusted blogs, and its availability—you can actually buy SkinWhite soap in your favorite sari-sari store (kay aling Nena) haha.

What?
SkinWhite PowerWhitening Glutathione + Vitamin C Soap REVIEW


Product claims:
Discover your brightest with the 2x power of glutathione and whitening of SkinWhite PowerWhitening Glutathione + Vitamin C Soap! It has anti-oxidant properties that work from the inside of your skin for that radiantly glowing skin on the outside.




Where to buy?
Supermarkets nationwide

How much?
P40-P50


I take a bath two times a day religiously and sometimes three depending on schedule and events for a specific day. So to sum it up, I'm using the SkinWhite PowerWhitening Glutathione + Vitamin C Soap two times a day. I really like the fragrance of this soap because it's almost like a perfume that's why it refreshes me after a long tiring day. It can also be an energy booster when you use it in the morning because of its smell.


I also like its packaging because everything you need to know about the product is clearly printed on the sachet/box. I like reading the details, ingredients, and claims of each products before buying them and I know some of you can relate to that—I can actually stay inside Watsons for  couple of hours without getting bored haha.



To be honest, I super like this soap because it really whitened my skin during the first time (last year) I used it and until now, it gives me the same result. I experienced micro-peeling while using this soap which is an indication that the soap is working its way to give me whiter and glowing skin. The soap can sometimes be harsh specially if you're having a dry-skin-day or if you're sensitive in too much fragrances.


The soap melts easily and it's actually small for its price. I hope they can make the soap a little bigger because for the price of P50, I can score an effective whitening soap weighing 90-100g. If they can do that, this will give the best value for our money.

All in all, I recommend this soap to the people with normal skin as it will really deliver good result. For the people with dry skin, this might still work but make sure to put on lotion right after taking a shower because this can be too harsh that it may turn your skin into walking chalkboard. Anyway, this is still effective for me and I can say that it really works. You may watch my video review about the SkinWhite PowerWhitening Glutathione + Vitamin C Soap here:

Head & Shoulders launches its Suprême Series with Mario Maurer and Sandara Park

by 1:48 PM
Most of us think that soft and dandruff-free hair is an impossible combination to have. For the longest time, it was widely accepted that having a healthy scalp also meant living with dry hair—that anti-dandruff shampoos were harsh for your hair. Admittedly, I've tried different anti-dandruff shampoos that make my scalp as dry as a chalkboard.



Now, all that is in the past with a scientific breakthrough from Head & Shoulders, a pioneer in scalp health development and the world’s number one anti-dandruff shampoo brand, as they launch the new premium Head & Shoulders Suprême Series Shampoo and Conditioner with Moroccan Argan Crème in the Philippines—a first of its kind.



Head & Shoulders’ latest innovation fuses its scalp-to-tip know-how with brand new ingredients to create a product that answers what women want and need—beautiful, deeply moisturized, soft AND dandruff-free hair. The Head & Shoulders Suprême  Series with Moroccan Argan Crème comes in two variants: Head & Shoulders Suprême Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner infused with orchid perfume; and Head & Shoulders Suprême  Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner, made with honey.




Head & Shoulders Suprême Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner leaves the hair touchably soft and intensely moisturized from root to tip. On the other hand, Head & Shoulders Suprême Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner leaves hair feeling super soft and smooth leaving locks perfectly polished all day. Both variants are infused with Argan crème and made with micro zinc technology that makes lusciously soft and 100% flake-free* hair a reality.


Designed to be used with the shampoo, the new Head & Shoulders Suprême Conditioner, contains Behentrimonium Chloride (BTMAC) or Better Targeting Magnetic Attraction Compound which targets damaged areas on the hair fibre for better conditioning. BTMAC is a dual-functional molecule that helps restore the cuticle, gives softness to the hair, and enables ease of combing while retaining moisture for up to 24 hours. The conditioner is also blended with rich alcohols for enhanced conditioning benefits, and 0.5% ZPT for enhanced scalp benefits.




Head & Shoulders’ scientists have long known that an unhealthy scalp leads to unhealthy hair. In fact, scratching alone can cause damage to the hair fibre resulting to dull, lack-lustre strands. Specifically, it was shown that oxidative stress leads to having an unhealthy scalp which then grows unhealthy hair. The best thing is that the new Head & Shoulders Suprême Series’ formula combines micro zinc technology and argan crème to effectively combat oxidative stress.


Saint Tiu, Principal Scientist, P&G Hair Care Asia Pacific comments; “Research from Head & Shoulders reveals that an unhealthy scalp compromises the hair surface and effects how hair develop, meaning unhealthy hair is born from an unhealthy scalp.  An unhealthy scalp will breed unhealthy new hair with damaged cuticles from the point at which the hair emerges, causing hair to be dry, dull and rough.  With new Head & Shoulders Suprême with Argan Crème, scientists are able to give women beautiful, nourished and smooth hair, while at the same time caring for their scalp.”



Displaying my dandruff-free hair. :)

The Head & Shoulders Suprême Moisture Series has a blend of floral and fruity notes for a great scent right from opening the bottle. Its brand new packaging design includes its iconic swan-shaped shampoo bottle and never-been-see-before new tube-shaped conditioner bottle holds a lot of promise for users.




No less than Sandara Park, Chie Filomeno, Janina Manipol, An Estrada, En Estrada, Michelle Dy, Cha Ocampo, Haley Dasovich, and Kianna Dy have been named as the new Head and Shoulders Suprême Ambassadors. These women show everyone that lusciously soft, dandruff-free hair is now possible. Equally proud of their dandruff-free hair are fellow ambassadors Mario Maurer, Nico Bolzico, Jeron Teng.



“I’ve always wanted to keep my hair flake-free, but anti-dandruff shampoos could be harsh on the hair. I’m so happy with Head & Shoulders Suprême! It’s given me super-soft, beautiful and clean hair while leaving my scalp healthy,” said Sandara.



“I’m amazed at how my hair is so clean, without being dry and stringy. I didn’t know this was possible,” concluded Sandara.



Purchase Head & Shoulders Suprême is available in all major supermarkets, sari-sari stores, drugstores, and convenience stores nationwide, as well as on ecommerce at http://www.lazada.com.ph/head-and-shoulders-official-store/

5 Amazing Places We Visited in Malaysia

by 11:24 AM

Me and my friends (Joan, Kevin, and Denver), visited our good friend Lyn who is currently working in Malaysia. We planned our trip ahead of time because we have very conflict schedules. We booked our tickets two months before our desired date.


To be honest, I wasn't expecting much about the country not until the beauty unfolded before my eyes when we arrived. Malaysia is such a beautiful country with a rich cultural heritage that shows Asian and European influence. That first thing that I noticed when we were in the car going to our friend's condominium was their wide road system. Unlike here in the Philippines, they have less traffic even though they have lots of cars too.


In this Photoblog, I will show you the amazing places we visited during our stay in Malaysia.



The Petronas Twin Towers




In a country with a rich and beautiful natural landscape, Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers stand out as an unusual example of Malaysia’s urban design excellence. We were really captivated by the beauty of this amazing twins. Again, I thought it was just an ordinary building but no! It's extra!

Central Market



Kuala Lumpur’s Central Market is a bustling, colorful market packed with stalls. The stalls are grouped in lanes based on the main ethnic races in Malaysia (Malay, Chinese and Indian). They sell souvenirs, a myriad handmade crafts, from clothes to wooden carvings and jewelry to batik fabrics; all alongside plenty of street food options. We bought some of the souvenirs like ref magnets and t-shirts here. We also got the chance to taste their famous Puto Bambu which is so delicious.


Batu Caves



A limestone outcrop located just north of Kuala Lumpur, Batu Caves has three main caves featuring temples and Hindu shrines. Its main attraction is the large statue of the Hindu God at the entrance, besides a steep 272 climb up its steps to finally view the stunning skyline of the city center. Unfortunately, we weren't able to climb the said stairs because we were wearing shorts. It's a holy place so they are requiring the tourist to at least wear jeans.

Merdeka Square




Merdeka Square is a historical site where Malaysia declared its independence. Very timely, we visited Malaysia during their Hari Merdeka (National Day) so we were able to feel their culture and patriotism even deeper. Within the colonial core of Kuala Lumpur, where the remnants of the British empire are especially evident (as you can see in the photos), Merdeka Square seems to be nothing more than a giant field with perfectly manicured green lawns and a centrepiece of the tallest flagpole in the world.

Mydin Subang Jaya




Wait, this is serious! Mydin is a wholesale hypermarket and the world's leading distributor of competitive "Halal" goods and services. Why this place is amazing? Dang! They offer very affordable chocolates, noodles, coffee, and basically everything you can find in a hypermarket. This is where we bought most of our pasalubongs haha. My friend even said that Mydin was his favorite place in Malaysia and of course, that was a joke! But jokes are half meant right? Hahaha.

All in all, we really enjoyed our visit in Malaysia and we will surely visit again because we know there's so much more we can do and discover in this beautiful country. If you wanna watch my travel vlog about this Truly Asia trip, you may watch the said video here:
