No More Summer Acne

I don’t know about you, but as fun as the summer is, the unforgiving summer heat has the makings of giving us the worse complexion as compared to any other time of the year. The beach visits can be a factor, the exposure to the sun has its countless trade off. But even if you don’t hit the road to a beach destination this summer break, the challenge of keeping skin clear may very well be emphasized at this time because of such extreme weather. *flicks a sweat off my brow*

Step 3: Repairing Treatment
The repairing acne treatment is a feather-light medicated treatment that Gets deep into clogged pores faster but is designed to be gentler on the skin. It’s an oil-free formula that’s safe for your entire face.

7 Tips for Hosting a Delicious Fondue Night

Love fondue? You don’t have to pay a hefty tab at a trendy restaurant to enjoy the sticky treat. Put that fondue maker to good use! Read on for seven ways to make – and enjoy – fondue at home and visit GirlyTwirly.com for more gift ideas.

1. You don’t need a fancy fondue pot. A basic ceramic pot will work great for chocolate fondue. It should come with fondue forks and a tea light that heats slowly.

2. If you’re making cheese fondue, a chocolate fondue pot isn’t ideal. A cheese fondue pot is larger and lower than a chocolate pot. This makes the cheese melt faster without burning.

3. Separate dippers onto different plates. Nobody wants their cheddar cheese mixing with their Twinkie! If you’re having friends over, use a tiered plate set to be extra fancy. (more…)

I don’t know about you but I treat it like a gold mine when I find something that really works. I not only go back to the product but I also make sure that I have it within reach, “in case of emergency.” If there’s one holy grail for acne control, it’s definitely Proactiv Renewing Cleanser for me.

Celebrating Chinese New year at the Sky Ranch

Good fortune and a blessed year – these are the things that the Chinese New Year heralds, and why Filipinos have taken this holiday to heart and celebrated it along with our Tsinoy brothers and sisters. The Chinese New Year is not just about the fireworks (which can be and are always spectacular), but is about learning to attract the good things in life by letting go of the negative attitude to acquire a more positive one.

What better way to attain a high-minded perspective that will set the tone for the new Chinese New Year than by reveling in all the thrills that are offered by the Sky Ranch? Sky Ranch, an amusement park popular among children and the young-at-heart, celebrates the ties that bind the Filipino-Chinese community in the country and features the richness of the Chinese culture. Located beside the Taal Vista Hotel along Aguinaldo Highway, Sky Ranch showcased 19 fun rides and other attractions such as horseback riding and its 300-meter zip line.

Beauty Product Feature: The 3 Minute #PanteneMiracle Conditioner

I love that once in a while I still get those eureka moments when it comes to beauty products. With all the innovation we have witnessed by far, I would tend to just nod with the usual superlative claims of brand new products. Yes, I would be impressed but not the “eureka” impressed kind. If you know what I mean. ;-)

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle

When P&G sent this Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner last week, I wasn’t really expecting much. I thought it was just another hyper conditioning agent being launched. But then again, it literally only took me one use and I was convinced. It is so good that I instantly concluded that it was comparable to the high end Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax trio shampoo, conditioner and anti-frizz spray that I use, only this comes in a more affordable, one-step-does-it-all conditioning. I love everything one step! It didn’t matter what shampoo I used with it, it right away achieved the hair that I’ve always wanted.

While I’m not exactly shooting to achieve a Bea Alonzo Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner magazine-perfect look, I did manage to let my hair down (and actually liked it) – something I haven’t done in ages! (more…)
