The Brow Studio Experience

  • Posted on July 23, 2014 at 11:02 am

“If the eyes are the window to the soul, then the brows are the window frame.”

As with my ever sparse lashes, my brows understandably have the same fate, not a very convenient thing, I must say. Because this means I am to perpetually fill them in, unlike if it were bushy, I can always shape them to my liking. Since I am a firm believer that brows are what frame the face. How we shape them, or fill them in can be critical in one’s over all look. The very reason I can leave the house without powder, lipstick or any other makeup on, but you can’t make me leave the house without (filling) my “brows” in. “If the eyes are the window to the soul, then the brows are the window frame.”

The Brow Studio

 I had a lovely and interesting time with The Brow Studio owner, Teng Tobillo and other bloggers a couple of weeks back. It was my first time to get some decent brow treatment, since the place I used to go to for waxing have always told me off from getting my brows shaped or threaded, because “I had no brows to start with.” I know, that may sound I little harsh. But I don’t really mind the rejection since I’ve known for a fact that I’ve always had little brows to work with anyway. And I just learned to make do of what I have. This is why I appreciated that The Brow Studio welcomed me and my very sparse brows. I love the brushing up on how I should have my brows shaped. I have learned quite a bit since I attended MakeUp Forever’s Personal Makeup Course in 2011.

Emy of The Brow Studio

 

The brow designer who take care of me was Ate Emy. As with any other salon I go to, I have kind of made it a habit to ask them how long they’ve been with the company. Ate Emy has been with The Brow Studio since it was launched at its very first location in Eastwood City in 2010. I love that. For my first brow-grooming experience, I wouldn’t want to just entrust my already problematic brows to a noob.

The Brow Studio brow designers go through rigorous classroom and hands-on training sessions. They are trained to master thread handling and eyebrow arch creation and facial shape assessment. What I totally dig is how The Brow Studio have every brow designer thread over 100 pairs of eyebrows before releasing them on the floor to work on actual clients. How’s that for quality control? It was my first time ever to experience having my wayward brows threaded and I did not once flinch! And all the while I thought it was painful.

Acne Solution: Benzoyl Peroxide

  • Posted on July 10, 2014 at 11:32 am

It is a blessing that I took after my folks’ good genes when it came to my skin not being prone to acne or pimples. Sure, breakouts happen from time to time but no more than thrice in a year. And most of them are either triggered by sleepless nights or a facial bump that got irritated because I can’t keep my hands off of it.

However, for some girls, especially those in their teenage years, the battle with acne can be long, traumatic and difficult. In some cases, it even leaves long-lasting marks and skin damage. While moisturizers, toners, and other beauty products can help clean, soften and clear up skin, sometimes acne scar treatments may be necessary to address such problems.

Truth be told, a handful lot of acne treatments have introduced themselves in the market, but the question has always been which is one really works. For some years now, benzoyl peroxide has been proven to be the gold standard for treating mild to moderate acne. Proactiv knows this to be true. In a form of topical antimicrobial medicine, an oxidizing agent that specifically kills P. acnes, the bacteria that cause acne breakouts. Benzoyl peroxide also helps to unblock pores and has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Fact:
Benzoyl Peroxide, unlike some acne treatments, is not an antibiotic. In its 50 years of effective use for treatment, there has been no case of its bacterial resistance. Meaning, this is safe to use.

@AbbottNews: Resolving #Undernutrition and Reducing Hospital Stays

  • Posted on July 5, 2014 at 9:25 am

Whether we are shooting to have our beauty last or maintain a healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition should always be a priority. I had the privilege to listen to a talk by Dra. Marianna Sioson, a medical nutrition physician and Dr. Rodolfo Dimaano, Medical Director of Abbott Nutrition Philippines last week on a new study that demonstrates oral nutrition supplements are associated with significant reductions in length of hospital stay and cost.

A new health economics outcomes study, conducted by leading health economists and supported by Abbott, found that oral nutritional supplements provided to patients during hospitalization are associated with significant reductions in length of stay and hospitalization cost. Additionally, the 30-day readmission risk was significantly reduced for patients with at least one known subsequent readmission.

Undernutrition

The ″Impact of Oral Nutritional Supplementation on Hospital Outcomes” study is a retrospective data analysis on the effect of oral nutritional supplements on hospital economic outcomes. The study compared hospital stays where oral nutritional supplements were provided with similar hospital stays that did not provide oral nutritional supplements. The difference between length of hospital stay and cost of treatment (including supplies, labor, depreciation of equipment, etc.) were measured.

Wen Cleansing Conditioner: 2 Months in and Still Loving it!

  • Posted on June 27, 2014 at 2:11 pm

As I have previously announced last April, Wen Cleansing Conditioner is officially out in the market. Yay! Gotta love SLS/SLES-Free Shampoos, or for this matter, Cleansing Conditioner, which is essentially similar to what we got used to calling Shampoo and Conditioner in one. But then again, Wen is a league entirely different since this is the kick-ass type, with its 5-in-1 formula that includes:

  1. Shampoo
  2. Conditioner
  3. Deep Conditioner
  4. Detangler
  5. Leave-in Conditioner

Our Wen Cleansing Conditioner just claimed its rightful spot on our tub. :-)

Wen Shampoo

 Wen Cleansing Conditioner Pomegranate right off the box

It is a good thing that ever since I started making my own Castile Soap and Shampoo, I have kinda sorta psyched my family to not fall dependent on the fallacy that lather translates to cleansing. Truth be told, lather almost always equals to harsh ingredients. I kid you not! The stripping of our hairs natural oils is what our usual commercial shampoos do. Wen Cleansing Conditioner does not merely do deep conditioning and all the nice things to your hair, it also keeps the hair color intact.

Product Feature: Myra VitaGlow BB Cream

  • Posted on June 18, 2014 at 1:27 pm

A BB Cream for only P99 a tube? Now, this for me makes Myra VitaGlow BB Cream is check out-worthy. I have tried a handful of BB Cream brands and have yet to find one this affordable. I have learned a long time ago that more affordable does not necessarily translate to low quality. In fact, a whole bunch of affordable brands can very well compete with contemporaries that are sold several times more.

Myra Vita Glow BB Cream

Don’t you just love personalized stuff? I love my  Myra VitaGlow BB Cream Travel Makeup Kit. Thank you, Myra for sending this. :-)

What’s I love about Myra VitaGlow BB Cream:

1. I love that Myra VitaGlow BB Cream is lightweight and moisturizing enough, it keeps my skin hydrated.
2. Vitamin E. The kick beauty products get when it contains Vitamin E, will always be a plus. Vitamin E keep the skin younger looking and healthy.
3. VitaGlow BB Cream doubles a foundation. Not full coverage all right. But good for everyday use. It comes in Ivory and Beige.
