Diana Stalder’s DermaLift: Advanced Anti-Aging Technology

dermalift

It was when I turned 40 in September that I started noticing what used to be fine lines, begin to look more prominent than I would want my random facial lines to be. Then my husband dragged me to potential places where we can have our renewal of vows done on our 15th anniversary – it could have easily set me on to panic mode.

It was right around that time when I first tried Diana Stalder’s Dermalift. I haven’t tried anything like it before, so I really didn’t know what to expect. All I knew was I was set to look my best on our renewal of vows but there is no way I am going to do anything drastic or invasive.

What is Dermalift?

Dermalift systems are manufactured to British, European and International standards.They are all fully guaranteed by Silhouette International , and backed by 32 years of expert research and development in the world of advanced anti ageing technology, and are recognised as market leaders.

Diana Stalder Laser Treatment for Sunspots and Spider Veins Review

Beauty Treatment Review: Diana Stalder Laser Treatment for sun spots and spider veins.

Sun spot, age spot, melasma, however it gets called, it has the makings of us being self-conscious or just plain annoyed. I honestly switch from former to the latter. Who wants a blotchy skin anyway?!

Finally took that step to get my sunspots taken cared of at Diana Stalder in Megamall towards the end of June.

Skin Consultation

As soon as Dra. Anne took note of my sun spot skin concern, she headed on towards a series of questions on my lifestyle. Mainly pertaining to the frequency of sun exposure in my daily grind. I later appreciated how thorough she was before she jumped right on to a solution. I had a few options, one of which is chemical peeling, which provides the fastest result. But because I had a client call happening the next couple of days, there was no way it was feasible, since chemical peel will mean that I’m to visibly peel and I have to practically stay indoors and stay out of the sun. I’ve done this years ago and I know what it’s like. That takes it out of the question. After some deliberations, we agreed on laser treatment for my sun spots with TyRo White line to support the treatment. (more…)

Beauty Product Feature: TyRo White “A Natural Alternative to Hydroquinone”

TyRo White “A Natural Alternative to Hydroquinone”

Truth be told, we Filipinas are suckers for white complexion. Truth be told, we Filipinas are suckers for white complexion. This explains why this beauty department isn’t going extinct anytime soon. The question has gone beyond just whitening products being effective, the influence of the wellness generation and with more and more people embracing “green” and “natural,” our leaning towards the “better” product and nature-derived alternative has become inevitable for us to explore.


I recently discovered TyRo White, a line of whitening products available at Diana Stalder. It claims to be a natural Alternative to Hydroquinone. My pretty Dermatologist at Diana Stalder prescribed TyRo White to support the laser treatment for my sun spots.  (more…)

Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics Ortigas Launch

My first encounter with Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics was when I accompanied my good friend, Iris of PinayAds.com, to have her eyes screened for Lasik with Dra. Samson in 2012.  I’ve seen for myself the relief the lasik surgery has been to my friend since. It wasn’t until last year did I come to discover that aside from being known to deliver no less than top-notch lasik service, Shinagawa also has a line of excellent beauty products. I’ve come to love their BB cream, but that’s another post altogether. 🙂

I’m really not surprised that Shinagawa has made a name in our local shores since it was introduced here in Manila in 2010. While it has 44 branches in Japan and has practically been a brand synonymous to “beauty,”  Manila has got to witness for herself that the celebrated lasik and aesthetic center really delivers.

Congratulations @shinagawaclinic on the grand opening of #ShinagawaOrtigas ☺

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.

Bea Alonzo

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…)

Mention-Worthy Whitening Products

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. (more…)
