Save on Sephora Beauty Loot with Groupon Coupons!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Frugality is something I’ve embraced a long time ago. While I don’t scrimp on the priorities, I make sure that I always get the best deal there is. Like for instance, my first groupon purchase in 2011 where I paid for half the price of a 15 hour Maquillage Professionel make up class. It was’t cheap even with the discount. But 50% is 50% and since I wasn’t going to settle for mere You Tube tutorials, I cannot be more glad that I got schooled in a reputable make up school and I got it for cheap using one of those nifty Groupon Coupons!

Happy 10th, Kojiesan!

Kikay Corner recently celebrated with Kojiesan their 10th year in the skin lightening industry.

Kojiesan’s manufacturer, Beauty Elements Venture’s Inc. (BEVI)’s success story is a witness to its owner’s determination. They started out with a few dozen orders and to its current millions of bars sold, the soap has been a favorite among the Filipino household. It started making waves locally and like every good news, it was bound to break out. Kojiesan is now known all across the globe.

BEVI started in a humble office in a residential area of Makati. Now, the company operates from an entire building. It also owns 6 hectares of manufacturing facilities in San Pablo, Laguna, providing employment to more than 500 employees.

BEVI is the first to introduce kojic acid soap in the Philippine market, initially as a supplier to dermatologists, who prescribed it to patients with skin pigmentation and darkening problems. Realizing its potential, BEVI launched the original kojic acid soap formulated the traditional Japanese way and made it even better by adding high-grade virgin coconut oil into the mix.

I love success stories like this, they create a foreground for people like us to never stop striving to reach for our dreams. My first encounter with Kojiesan was when I learned from our helper some 6 years back that it was the brand of soap that she used. I had to ask because the transition from dull skin to a bright and flawless one was amazing. Yes, it was inevitable for me to stock up on it myself. 🙂

#KissAgingGoodbye with Watsons

Watsons summons all to Kiss Aging Goodbye through their latest anti-aging campaign.

20160804_154227

Aging is inevitable, true. But with all the latest in product innovations, I’m all for delaying it for as long as possible. Because of free radicals that come with today’s lifestyle, the signs of aging are more pronounced than they were decades ago. Truth be told, fine lines come as early as 20s. (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…)

10 Years Of #DermoBeautiful Skin with #CeletequeDermo

Kikay Corner is one with Deleteque Dermo, as it celebrates 10 years of making us Dermo Beautiful!

With prolly over a thousand beauty brands all over the world, what would actually make a lady stick? I’d say it’s the brand’s sheer ability to deliver. Celeteque Dermo is grounded in its products being co-created by dermatologists and beauty experts. And over the years, more and more people are seeing for themselves that Celeteque Dermo truly delivers.

Celeteque Dermo with Beauty Bloggers

At the Celeteque Dermo 10 year celebration with fellow beauty bloggers.

I believe one of the key factors that make Celeteque Dermo ring is their customized skin care solutions for specific skin types. Because we have to be realistic, it can’t be one for all. Because our skins are built differently, products that are for our specific skin type will be more effective. (more…)

Maxi-Peel Gandang Career Launch: Discover The Beauty of Success

Maxi-Peel Gandang Career champions working women to gain fresh confidence and have renewed drive as their concerns are addressed in the workplace.

I love how the inspiring talks went about. As a freelancing woman since I dropped my job in the bank so many years back, this as well may very well apply to me as I juggle so many tasks. No place for mediocrity, I should say, for us women who want our lives to count. And I believe that no feminine being desires less. Some may need a boost here or there but the innate need for us, in our very design to have the ability to nurture life in our very beings tells a lot about our deep desire to matter to the people around our circle of influence.

Have You Tried Sample Room Yet?

Sample Room

I’d be the first to tell you that I’ve had had a lot of beauty product curiosity over the years. I may have been able to suppress and maybe wait out until a decent review is up that convinced me that it’s worth the try but there are a handful of product (and then some), that has got my EQ tested and I failed. Haha!
