Loving yourself through proper health care

We only have one body, and we owe it to ourselves to take care of it. Self-love and self-care is a must.  To some, prowling over fitness gyms in the neighborhood, raiding vegetarian restaurants at the corner of the street, and looting for the most effective herbal supplement over the counter is loving and caring for oneself. For others, self-care and self-love comes through indulgent skincare. Yes, you read it right. Skincare.

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.

Flawless All-Natural Ultimate White Facial

My face has uneven skin tone, some parts on the side of my face are darker. Maybe it’s the way how I apply my skin care products. When I learned about All-Natural Ultimate White Facial from Flawless, I knew I just have to try it. I usually avail their Advanced Facials or the Cell Booster Infusion Mask, both are good so I’m sure the All-Natural Ultimate White Facial will be beneficial to my skin too, it’s not called “ultimate” for nothing.

Nanay and I went to Flawless SM San Lazaro branch. Before the facial procedure started, my therapist, Rachel, explained to me that since this is a natural facial, she will skip the pricking part since I have clear skin. I got a bit disappointed because I really like the pricking part and I find joy seeing all the dirt (whiteheads and blackheads) on my face removed.

Human Heart Nature Balancing Face Toner – a review

I love Human Heart Nature products! I love HHN mostly because it’s proudly Pinoy and it uses natural ingredients. I’m a fan of their shampoo and conditioner so I gave their facial washes and toner a try. I love all their facial washes, I enjoyed using them so much that I emptied the bottle that fast without making a review, hihi, maybe next time.

For now, here’s a review of Human Heart Nature Balancing Face Toner.

Nourishing skin care for moms and kids from Johnson’s Baby

Being a mommy 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is truly a demanding yet fulfilling and rewarding role. There are difficult days for sure but the joys of motherhood surmount it all. Aside from having a mommy role, you have to fill in the wifely duties too. Oh, and a career woman too if you’re like me. You divide your time to your kid/s, to your husband, and to your career, do you still have time for yourself?

The Benefits of All-Natural Beauty Products

Let’s face it, with the number of cosmetics out in the market today how can you be sure that you are about to make the right choice? Some people commit the mistake of joining the fad, rushing to join the bandwagon and buying the latest craze in cosmetics only to find out that it is not good for their skin. Yes, a lot of people are guilty of that. Before you start buying everything on the skin counter aisle, it is better to determine first the type of your skin and what it really needs.

I first encountered a Lulur-based product from Venus & Mars with their Lulur soap. Lulur is an ancient beauty secret originated from Central Java that’s said to effectively whiten skin and leaving it soft and smooth. Luckily, Lauren hosted a giveaway last year and I won this along with the Celeteque Facial Wash.

Watsons haul

I’m on an anything-beauty-related-buying-mode lately, blame it to Etude House hehe. I don’t hoard make-ups though, more on skin care like facial masks, organic soaps, BB creams, hair products and also perfumes and fragrances. A recent visit to Watsons at Mall of Asia made me discover that there are already a lot of facial masks available, mostly made from Korea, this is facial lovin’.

The most talked about brand in Femalenetwork.com is Purederm so I looked for the Strawberry Yogurt Pack, unfortunately they don’t have stocks. I decided to sample other sheet masks and wash-off masks also from Purederm.

Etude House haul

Etude House opened its first branch in the Philippines at SM Megamall Bldg. A. Korean beauty product fanatics trooped to Megamall since its first opening day. Megamall is too far from my place that’s why I only get to visit the store last Saturday. Finding the store is easy, it’s located at the ground floor near Toy Kingdom. The moment I entered the store, I was awed, it’s like entering a princess’ bedroom, with insanely pink and blue interiors and girly ornaments and decorations. A princess indeed, upon entering the store, I was greeted by sales assistants clad in their pink/white uniforms with “Hello princess!”.
