Gifted my Skin a Holiday with Burt's Bees

Days passed by and and another year is fast approaching. So before 2015 ends, I want to complete my beauty goals that I listed on my planner last January. Actually there's only a few goals left and hopefully I can accomplish them before this year ends.

One of the goals I included is to invest more on skincare products. As a beauty junkee, it's so important to me to have a flawless and glowing skin so I don't need to put too much makeup in order to hide blemishes and skin problems. Also, this season is the best way to spend and have a gift for yourself that's why I got myself a little present from Burt's Bees.

I plan to change my daily skincare routine into 100% natural and organic products and this brand - Burt's Bees is always be my first choice. Another reason is their products are safe to use on pregnant woman like me.

Let's do some recap first. If you still didn't know, Burt's Bees launched their "Bee Merry" Christmas Gift Sets this season. From their wide selection of beauty bundles, you can choose a set according to you or to your love ones daily needs such as hydrating, radiating, classics, lip care, and many more. What's great about this is they are super budget-friendly that even students can afford to buy them. Another thing is you can save for at least 20-30% on their bundles rather than buying each product individually. Plus, they are ready with a usable bag/pouch already that you may use on travels and other important matters.

Blue Magic Scent Collection: Patricia (Part 1)

Perfumes are one of my guilty pleasures. One of the things I do before leaving the house is to spritz an ample amount of perfume on my body. It boosts my morning routine as well as making me energetic and alive for the whole day. Without it, I feel like there is something missing.

Just in time that the one I'm currently using is nearly empty, I got this new bottle of perfume from Blue Magic for free. Been known for their wide range selection of stuffed toys, this surprised me because I didn't knew that they even have perfumes too! For being so curious about it, I searched the product on google to know more about its origin and other informative info but it seems like I'm the first one who will be doing a review about their  perfume.

Have A Vanilla Scent With Snoe

Most of you (my readers) knew that Snoe is one of my favorite brand right? I'm sad to say that I currently stopped using some of their products since I get pregnant especially when I was on my first trimester. I was told by my OB to stop using products with whitening as well as those who have a peeling effect because it is bad for the fetus. Products that contains salicyc acid and retinol are a big no no too!

But hey, wait! This doesn't mean that I stash all Snoe products I have on my vanity. That is a big big impossible. haha. If you are a follower of my Instagram, is it so obvious on my feed that I love giveaways. Remember the beauty kit I'd won on Snoe's giveaway a month ago? Aah! Snoe was so generous to include one of their best selling perfume that I'll be reviewing today. Ready?

Have a Healthy Lifestyle with Herbalife

Good evening Dearies,

Before you go to sleep I want to share something with you.

MANILA, Philippines - Nine in 10 Filipino consumers surveyed by global nutrition company Herbalife are “highly concerned” about the potential diseases that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause them, with the same number believing that simple lifestyle changes can help improve their overall well-being
A good number of the respondents expressed willingness to adopt a healthy lifestyle; 79 percent said that they would cut down on unhealthy foods, 78 percent expressed their willingness to exercise more regularly, and 72 percent said they would make better nutrition choices.
“We welcome the results of the survey.It gives an understanding of Filipinos becoming even more health concious and self-aware that they need to make some lifestyle changes to improve their overall well-being. It also gives Herbalife an idea where we are needed, because as the survey revealed only four out of 10 would spend 10 to 30 minutes a day to make simple lifestyle changes,” said Rosalio Valenzuela, Herbalife Philippines General Manager.
The respondents, however, cited the following as the top obstacles to achieving a healthy lifestyle: lack of time for exercise (75 percent), lack of time to make proper nutrition choices (64 percent), and high cost of healthy food (62 percent).
The same health poll likewise showed that the top three aging-related concerns in the country were heart, brain, and eye health.

Better Knowledge and Understanding

“The findings from the Herbalife survey clearly show that the majority of people in Asia Pacific that we questioned believe in the value of good nutrition and exercise as contributing to their overall well-being. We aim to play a greater role in providing practical tips and information to people to help them understand that the journey to a healthier, more active lifestyle is not difficult to achieve. With as little as 10 minutes a day, consumers can take positive steps to improve their nutrition and be more active, which will improve their overall well-being,” said William M. Rahn, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Herbalife Asia Pacific.
Herbalife conducted the survey in September 2015 in the lead-up to its Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour. It surveyed 1,200 respondents across six countries, including the Philippines, on perceptions towards their health and current lifestyle. Respondents from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, and Thailand were likewise included in the survey.

Product Review: Snoe Here Comes The Sunblock Instant Rosy White SPF45 with Singakmas & Arbutin

Hello fellas!

Are you wearing sunscreen everyday? You should be. As a beauty blogger for almost a year I've learned so much about the importance of sun protection. It helps us to prevent facial brown spots and skin discolorations (which I have) as well as it slows down the development of wrinkled, premature aging skin. To be honest, sunblock isn't my thing. I skipped applying sunblock during my high school and college days because I did not want to feel how sticky and greasy it felt on my skin (Ugh!). I'm also too lazy enough for it. But there's this one sunblock that changes everything - the Snoe Here Comes The Sunblock Instant Rosy White SPF45 Sun Lotion with Singkamas and Arbutin. So before I finished this sunblock I will share how good this product is. 

Snoe Here Comes The Sunblock Instant Rosy White SPF45 Sun Lotion with Singkamas and Arbutin - Php299.00

Product Description: Moisturizes, Whitens, Damage protection, Anti-oxidants (free radical scavenger), Non-greasy and Paraben-free. Bengkoang contains Vitamin C, Flavonoids, Saponins and Phenolic compounds which is a natural sunscreen to prevent skin damage brought about by free radicals.It effectively inhibits the formation of melanin and pigmentation due to hormonal changes, acne scars and harmful UV rays of the Sun. This lotion will immediately transform your skin with a rosy white complexion. While Arbutin is a powerful, yet gentle whitening agent derived from the bear berry shrub.

My past years in the blogging world was super fun and challenging. Fun because I have my own blog, finally! haha. Challenging because I don't know and I don't have ideas what to write on it. You know that feeling when you have so much ideas on your head but don't know where to start?! That's practically me. haha. Also, it's hard for me to construct a perfect sentence that is written on English. LOL

Up to date now, my blogging skills are quite improving, I guess? I get to know and meet some fellow bloggers, I got invites on events, received emails about sponsorship, affiliated on some brands and most of all I even got an award which is overwhelmed me every time I receive one. The first award I got is the Sunshine Blogger Award which I got nominated by the gorgeous Genzel of Genzel Kisses Blog last year.

Project Vanity 7th Anniversary Event

Last Saturday, March 7,2015 was one of  my greatest experience. Me along with my co-bloggers and readers was invited at Ms. Liz Lanuzo's 7th Blog Anniversary - Project Vanity. The event was held at the newly open branch of Beauty Bar in Central Square Mall, BGC. The place was bigger than the other Beauty Bar branches I'd been but in spite of that, all their staff was super nice and approachable naman. Back to the even, Me and my new friend Stacie arrived at the said place at exactly 2:00pm. To tell you we both didn't know each other yet. I met Stacie on Ms. Liz blog, one of her blog reader who also got invited at the event. We both didn't know how to go to Central Square so we decided to come together. And that's where our friendship begun. hihi. (Hi Stacie!)

 My first picture with Ms. Liz. Thanks for the opportunity.

Anyway, back again to what I'm talking about, there's still few people at the event when we got inside the Beauty Bar so we got a chance to talked and introduced ourselves to Ms. Liz. We even took a picture with her. You know, souvenir! LOL.

My First Sample Room Purchase

Yesterday was such a great day! I was so happy that I finally received my first Sample Room product. Yes you read it right! It was my first so please allow me to share my thoughts about it.

For the past years I'd known Sample Room, I'd never got a chance to buy sample products from them. One of the main reason is my points isn't enough for the product I want. Although they offer a VIP membership which you can have a lot of points, 1000 points for 799php only, it can be used for two months to be exact, I can't afford it that time because I'd been saving for my personal purposes. But this year, I've been planning to have a VIP membership from them.

Pond's Acne Clear White Multi Action Facial Foam + Scrub Review

Hello there fellas' How are you? After being hiatus for about a month, finally I'm back on the blogging world again. And I promise to make it up to you. I have plenty product reviews prepared for you. Let's start!

For my first blog post this year, I will write a review about Pond's Complete Solution Acne Clear White Facial Foam + Scrub. It's not my first time to use Pond's. I'd known this brand since high school because my classmates were an avid user of their facial wash. That time I got curious and tried it too. Sadly, after using the product  for how many days, my pimples started to popped out one by one. I was disappointed that time and chose not use Ponds products again.

Pond's Acne Clear White Multi Action Facial Foam + Scrub - Php85.00
Until I won Zalora's Beauty Box last December which contains Ponds facial wash and moisturizer (both in sample pack only) but I opted to gave it to my cousin since she really likes it. But lately, I just realized that it's one of the Pond's newest product and read good feedback about it. Then boom! for the second time I'd got curious AGAIN and bought its full size. Yes! Agad-agad! hehe. Well you can't blame me, its promise to have a pimple-free and whiter skin caught my eyes.

Will  Pond's Acne Clear White Multi Action Facial Foam + Scrub effective on me? Read more and let's see the results.
