While it is true that I so appreciate I took after a gene that did not have me suffer an acne-laden face growing up, there is still a time of the month that I am most vulnerable to having one. Yes, that’s the week before aunt flow comes. It totally adds up to an already hormonally influenced season of my month.
Truth be told, what I go through is nothing from what I witnessed for myself, the ordeal of teeners when they break both arm and leg, spending fortune to see dermatologists to get their acne problems solved.
For my “seasonal” acne episodes, what totally works for me is Proactiv. I have yet to find a brand that comes close in preventing breakouts and blemishes, the Proactiv Solution 3-Step System has always been a default choice for me. I tried some acne gels in the past but nothing was as effective as Proactiv.

For some reason, even if I am a reseller of Sutla and Flawless beauty products, I only feature those products that I have tried and tested myself. I have lined up a handful lot of Flawless products but I haven’t find the time to publish just yet. One of the more recent Sutla Flawless products I have tried is the Flawless Whitening Solution.
To start with, I am not dark-skinned. So before you wonder why I’d bother with Flawless Whitening Solution, there are some parts of my body that have uneven skin tone. In preparation of last month’s Davao family vacation, I just had to get this done, just in case I’d go swimming. I’m a little self-conscious about this dark spot on my right leg. So there.
A pre-mixed of Sutla Flawless Whitening powder form that helps eliminate dark spots other skin pigmentations and discolorations, pimple scars, stretch marks and rejuvenates skin. Ingredients are all safe too. Nothing to worry about cancer causing chemical agents too. I would definitely won’t even think of trying this myself if it does.

It has been more that three years since I took the Personal Beauty Make Up Course Maquillage Professionnel by Make Up Forever. I intended to blog about it but life got in the way.
Above is a collage of a few of the photos I took in the 15 hour Personal Make Up Course that I enrolled in with the pretty girls I am with in the above photos. I can’t believe this was three years ago! Time flies. I was meaning to level up but I had my priorities right in line. I would still love to learn more about make up artistry still. Maybe later when I get the chance.

It was sometime last month when I first caught a glimpse of Hello Kitty items inside the flagship store of Lock & Lock in Eastwood Mall. I was naturally gravitated inside the store to check them out! Lock & Lock has turned into one pink Hello Kitty heaven. The hubby ever so sweetly indulged me as I went from one stand to the next. Truly an eye-candy for any Hello Kitty follower.
Purrty Lock & Lock Hello Kitty thingies
Imagine my delight when I received an invite to the launch of the Hello Kitty Collection of Lock & Lock at Edsa Shangri-la. No, I wouldn’t pass this up for anything. I may not have a girl for a child but this Hello Kitty-loving little girl in me is giddy over the Sanrio character nonetheless.
Hello Kitty, the world’s most iconic cat-like character, brings a new, cute experience every meal time as Lock&Lock launches its newest LockLock Hello Kitty Collection of food containers and tumblers in the Philippines.

Like it or not, we Filipinas are bombarded with whitening products left and right. It’s as if our life depended on being as fair skinned as possible. They say the caucasians who have colonized our country have left, but guess what, the mentality of fair being “beautiful” has kind of stuck. This is true even for someone who is considerably fair. It’s inevitable. It is kind of the norm. Thus, I more than just find myself hiding under the sun as I slather through thick sunscreen protection but I have also enjoyed using quite a bunch of whitening products.
Who does not love clear, translucent, clean and fair skin, right? Those are essentially my reasons why I play favorites and here’s my list of Top Whitening Products:
1. Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Scrub
When I go to a spa, it was never for a massage that I go for. My hubby is more skilled than any spa therapist who’s ever given me a massage. I go to a spa for the scrub treatment. Ever since Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Scrub, I have practically stopped going to the spa for my longed for body scrub.
2. Flawless Underarm Whitening with Milk Extract
I did not expect laser hair removal was going to cause underarm darkening, so it startled me quite a bit when it did. This product is a wonder product in that I gained my fair skin back in under a week. I love that it has all-natural ingredients and there was no sting in the whitening process.

It is always fun to get first dibs to new things. Before we flew down South last weekend, I got a hold of Maybelline’s Dream Liquid Mousse with its Duo Fibre makeup brush! I love the Perfect Airbrush coverage that it claims to be able to deliver. I have never tried airbrush makeup before because of the hefty amount that came with it. Understandably, this new makeup innovation got me all curious.

There is nothing I love more that personalized stuff. If you have been following this blog for a while, you’ll know this for a fact. This is why it was a delight to know that Tomato Time SWAP has come up with such exciting concept, they call SWAP DIY.
SWAP DIY is so much fun!
SWAP Design-It-Yourself is Tomato Time SWAP’s latest offering where we can have our personal photo and design turned into a SWAP Watch. I used to order my personalized stuff from Hongkong. SWAP’s quality is a whole tad better.
Our SWAP DIY with our Family Photo
Since I was looking into giving the SWAP Watch to my son, I asked him what color he wants it in. His favorite color is red, so red it is. He was also the one who chose which family picture he’ll have the design in.
