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…)

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…)

#HealWithVaseline this Summer: Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion and Deep Restore Lotion

The summer heat has gone beyond unbearable these past days. Unbearable enough that I was under the weather the week after my son was. Tandem it with one of summer’s most common diseases, sore eyes, and I just about welcomed myself into misery land. But as I am feeling better today, I’m more than ever convinced that we should be more vigilant in making sure our bodies are well hydrated, especially this summer.

Heal with Vaseline

That said, did you know that this wild summer heat has the makings of dehydrating your skin? I know this all too well since my cracked lips are such give away.  As our skin is exposed to factors that can damage and dry it out. From hot showers, air-conditioned rooms, to the heat and pollution during one’s daily commute, skin is stripped off of its natural hydration and moisture. Check out the difference between leaves with and and without Vaseline. That’s pretty much the case for my lip when I fail to dab Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on it – one touch and it’s likely to crack.

This tub of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly did not merely protect my lips but it has practically healed my cracked lips. No more achy and bruised lips from all the cracks. We all know how lips tend to crack when we are sick, so this has been my go-to-tub since I got the flu. (more…)

Thiocell: Not Your Ordinary Glutathione Supplement

I’ve tried a few Glutathione Supplement brand since it started to gain buzz in the market a few years back. While most people are shooting for its whitening effect, I was out for its liver cleansing function when I was regularly taking some medication. I got to try Thiocell back in 2013 and I haven’t tried another brand since.

Thiocell is the first and only glutathione supplement in lozenge form, formulated to give whiter, brighter and more radiant skin.

Wanting to have fairer and brighter complexion must have something to do with our country’s history of being colonized by foreigners. Our standard for beauty has since become predominantly that of fairer skin. This explains why Filipinas use beauty products and take oral supplements for whitening. But the thing is not all glutathione products are created equal. A lot  simply don’t deliver as dramatically as they promise.

Proven to be the more superior product in the market, Thiocell is the firstand only oral glutathione in lozenge form. It is clinically proven to reduce pigmentation and achieve healthier, brighter and more beautiful skin in as early as 2 weeks.

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 ☺
