SK-II now available at Sephora Philippines: Haul + Initial Review

Sephora is the crème de la crème of beauty stores. It started out in France that offers classic and emerging brands across a broad range of product categories including skincare, makeup, fragrance, body and hair care, in addition to Sephora’s own private label. It’s not a surprise that Sephora carries prestige and luxury brands too when it comes with skin care just like SK-II. SK-II is considered one of the best in anti-aging skin care and its most raved product is their SK-II Facial Treatment Essence or SK-II FTE. My friends are raving about this product and I almost bought this when I went to HK. But my friend talked me out of buying because when I run out of supply, where will I buy my stash?

That was a dilemma 2 years ago, but now problem is solved because SK-II is now available in Sephora Philippines!!!

Why wear wigs?

This is a sponsored post but all opinions are mine.

Hair is our crowning glory, it can make or break your overall look. This is why we should take care of our hair such as use of hair conditioners and having weekly treatments like hair spa and hot oil. You may have noticed that there one of the hair trends right now is having colored hair. This is not just an ordinary hair coloring, this is more drastic like from black hair to blonde hair. These hair trends might look good on photos but in reality, our hair suffers from those bleaching, coloring, blow-drying and other treatments.

So what if you want to go blonde but doesn’t want to undergo hair bleaching? Wear wigs!

Wigs are the most versatile way to change your looks in an instant. You can also try on some wigs if you’re unsure how a certain haircut and hair color will look good on you.

I like browsing for African American wigs because they have over 500 products for all things hair. Whether straight or curly, short or long hair, blonde or brunette, you can change your looks everyday.

I like that the wigs are being shown online and just choose whatever you’d like to try. After choosing, pay for your item/s and wait for it to arrive in your doorstep.

Achieve your #HairGoals on Watsons Color Your Hair Day on May 27, 2017!

Back in college, I was adventurous with my hair. I would grow it long, or cut it really really short. I also took the hot oil weekly by heart since I’ve got all the time in the world when I was young. Now that I’m a mom, I often go for a low-maintenance no-frills hairstyle… aka rebonded hair with a boring hair color and then tied into a ponytail afterwards. As for hair care…. what hair care? Who has time for that when you’re a mom? :p

The latest celebrity who Switched & Saved at Watsons

The Watsons Switch & Save campaign was a smashing success since it was launched 5 years ago. Watsons customers all across the country made the switch, changing out their toothbrushes, tissues, lotions and more for the affordable, high quality Watsons alternative. With such great momentum behind the movement, they decided to expand the campaign to the pharmacy. Launching Watsons Generics in 2014, Watsons was able to bring that same promise of affordable quality to Filipinos everywhere. Improving the state of nation’s healthcare was a huge win.

The gift of healthy ‘crowning glory’ fit for the queen this Mother’s Day

Cliche it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanay, inay, ‘nay, mama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority. No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Celeteque DermoCosmetics: Skin care and make-up in one

When I reached my 30s, I became more conscious about skin care. The first skin care I used was Celeteque Anti-wrinkle Power Serum Break-off Capsules. I swear by this product, unfortunately they discontinued this one but they still have a great line-up of anti-aging products. When it comes to make-up, I use it sparingly and only wear them on special occasions because I wanted my skin to breathe. We are also often warned about the way makeup can dry out and grease up the skin, working against the effects of good skin care.

Laneige White Plus Renew Bubble Cleanser review

Laneige is one of my fave Korean skin care brand ever since I tried their Snow BB Cream. Laneige products are not as affordable like Etude House, Tony Moly, etc. but based on reviews, it’s one of best Korean brand especially when it comes to skin care. So when my friend Czjai held a pre-order when she went to Seoul a few months ago, I ordered the Perfect Renew line which I will review on my succeeding post.
