Transform Your Look With Hair Extensions

  • Posted on October 31, 2014 at 8:53 am

One of the fastest and easiest ways to transform or update your look is with hair extensions. Whether you are growing out a bob hairstyle, looking to celebrate a major life achievement with a new look or suffering from a medical condition that affects your hair, extensions can give your style and confidence a huge boost. You can transform your look with hair extensions in as little as an hour.

When it comes to hair extensions, there are many different application processes and types of hair to choose from. Synthetics are a more cost-effective choice, but for a completely natural and flawless look, human hair extensions are worth the investment. Keratin infusions are a newer extension application technology and are applied with a fusion iron; i-tip extensions are applied using micro beads and rings; tape-in extensions are fast, cost-effective and easy, but they are meant for quick-change uses.

17th @UniqloPH Store Opens at the Power Plant Mall

  • Posted on October 24, 2014 at 12:24 pm

UNIQLO, Japan’s leading global apparel brand, recently opened its 17th store in the Philippines at the Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City. The store launch showcased UNIQLO’s Kids and Babies expanded collection for the 2014 Fall/Winter season.

Uniqlo Kids

I love that Uniqlo believes that “kids should be free to be kids.” As opposed to  a handful lot of brands that stretch kids to dress up like adults, I am so for kids’ and babies clothes – freedom of movement, comfort, easier removal, fun designs and safety features to promote kids’ growth and health.

My 9 year old little man and I got to swing by the 17th Uniqlo store opening last Monday at the Powerplant Mall.

The Power Plant Mall location is strategic as Uniqlo chose it primarily to cater to Makati residents and the south of Metro Manila. Makati City is the Philippines’ financial/business district with a growing reputation as an entertainment and lifestyle and makes it an ideal location for UNIQLO’s new store, which is envisioned to become a place for the family to shop for their clothes.

The kids who walked the ramp looked really adorbs in their Uniqlo pieces. I saw for myself what Uniqlo professes they believe for the kids – freedom of movement, comfort, easier removal and fun designs. And did I mention the kids and babies were just plain adorable? I was gushing the whole time! :-)

Why @ProactivWorks is the Superior Anti-Acne Solution

  • Posted on October 17, 2014 at 4:11 pm

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.

Beauty Product Feature: Sutla Flawless Whitening Solution

  • Posted on October 16, 2014 at 11:14 am

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.

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.

Flawless Whitening Powder and Solution

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. 

#ShoweredWithCoco: Dial Coconut Water Hydrating Body Wash

  • Posted on October 7, 2014 at 10:46 am

If you have been following me on IG | Twitter | Tumblr (@jenaspacio), you must’ve been plenty curious about my #ShoweredWithCoco posts last month. The big reveal is here. :-)

Showered with Coco

 Soap products come and go, each brand claiming a uniqueness that sets it apart from its competitors, be it an extra ingredient for cleansing or a supposed cutting-edge solution for certain benefits. However, in the end, perhaps the true test of a winner is time, a brand that has lasted for a long time, been relished by many generations, and yet keeps reinventing itself in the process.

Dial is one such brand. The very name itself brings up powerful and poignant images of a soap that has been used consistently by one family member after another, and has come with the best recommendations of parent, sibling, and friend alike. Besides excellence and quality, it is strongly associated with high-grade cleansing that only Dial can deliver, speaking of results that have satisfied – and continue to satisfy – consumers.

Cosmix School of Makeup Artistry

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.

Lock & Lock launches latest Hello Kitty Collection

  • Posted on September 29, 2014 at 5:18 pm

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. :-)

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.

Mention-Worthy Whitening Products

  • Posted on September 29, 2014 at 3:16 pm

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.

#AirbrushedLookEveryday with @MaybellinePH Dream Liquid Mousse

  • Posted on September 26, 2014 at 12:00 pm

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.
