Over the weekend, I was delighted to find myself in a skin care clinic, after a while of being in hiatus. I knew I was in dire need of pampering but I also felt bogged down by the crazy metro traffic. What finally got me to give pampering a go again was the proximity of my new found beauty place – Kutis Filipina.
Kutis Filipina Wellness and Skin Care Clinic’s receiving area ushered me back to a familiar place of “me time,” I never thought I missed until I got there. I know, I’ve been awfully busy these days. (more…)
My first encounter with Gloww was in 2012. I was pretty impressed how my skin stayed fair despite the summer trotting I did with my family back then – including a week long tour along the streets (and river – Mekong) of Vietnam and Cambodia. I was almost sure that I was going to be a notch darker since the heat of Manila was considerably more forgiving than that of Cambodia’s! Truth be told, I would’ve stayed in the hotel if it were up to me. I loved that I stayed just as fair! 🙂
Five years since, and I am getting reacquainted with Gloww Collagen Capsules.
Gloww helps feed skin’s CLBT. CLBT being Color, Luminosity, Brightness and Transparency. Its one of a kind SKHN (Skin, Health and Nutrient) Complex reinforces collagen, detoxifies your skin, upgrades blood dissemination, shields it from unsafe UV beams and free radicals.
Gloww Capsules include these following natural ingredients: Marine Protein, Horsetail Extract ,Lycopene, Green Tea Extract, Lemon Bioflavonoids, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Vitamin C , Grape Seed Extract, Natural Betacarotene, Pine Bark Extract,Vitamin E.
Recommended dosage is 2 capsules per day for two months, and 1 capsule per day after two months.
Gloww Collagen Capsules retails for P960 per box, with 30 capsules.
Gloww Collagen Powdered Drink
When a product is already good, and am pretty satisfied in its overall benefits, I don’t exactly expect for it to go another extra mile by coming up with yet another awesome product. But this is exactly what Gloww has done and I cannot be more thrilled! 🙂
I initially wondered what the difference is from my old favorite Gloww capsules. Apparently, Gloww Collagen is powered by Verisol. Verisol is a product of advanced German technology that makes the collagen more bioavailable as it is absorbed by the gut, and allows for the repair of damaged skin to be more efficient. The efficient absorption helps the skin to get the most out of your collagen.
After around two months of taking Gloww Collagen Capsules and Gloww Collagen Drink
My skin is noticeably more supple. I don’t need to slather on as much moisturizer as I used to. I’m 40 and I was wearing very light make up in this photo. Of course, I wouldn’t get caught without my brows, but on the face, no primer, just a regular BB cream (which explains the shine haha!) and lipstick. 🙂
Although I did mention that I remained fair with the constant taking of Gloww supplement, I have long corrected in my mind the misconception that it is a whitening agent. It actually is not, the skin remains fair essentially because of the detoxification action of the chemical breakdown of all the ingredients combined. It helps keep the skin sustain its youthful glow.
The recommended dosage for Gloww Collagen is 1 sachet per day. This food supplement is sold for P90 per sachet or P2,700 per box of 30 sachets.
Gloww Collagen Powdered Drink Ingredients include: Collagen hydrolysate (Verisol), mixed fruit dry flavour, citric acide anhydrous, sucralose and carmine (coloring agent)
My love affair with #GlowwCapsules goes back to 2012. Explains the multiple write-ups on the blog ➡ KikayCorner.net I was won over by its all-natural ingredients right on: Marine Protein, Horsetail Extract, Green Tea Extract, Lemon Bioflavanoids, Collagen, Ascorbic Acid, Tomato and Grape Seed Extract Some of the other benefits: Gloww cleanses & detoxifies the skin, improves micro circulation of the skin and nourishes it for a healthy & glowing look, protects the skin from free radical damage and prevents aging & provides strength and elasticity to the skin for a smoother and firmer skin.
Another undeniable and pleasant side effect of Gloww Collagen on me is the non-incidence of dry eyes. I’m not surprised, actually. Since I’ve learned that collagen helps lubricate joints and eye tissues, resulting to dry eyes prevention. “Dry eyes” has been an incessant problem that has bugged me for some years now. My years of freelancing and virtual assistant tasks have taken their toll on my poor eyes. I love that I no longer have to deal with it for as long as I’m taking my Gloww Collagen supplement.
Based on studies, after two months of continued use of Gloww Collagen, the following effects are observed:
- Improved skin elasticity
- Improved skin moisture
- Wrinkle reduction
- Even after a 4week washout phase, effects are still evident.
Gloww Collagen is also BFAD approved, which for me, is a non-negotiable when I’m looking into a long-term supplement. I’ve been won over by the product from 2012, and I am even more pleased with Gloww now that it comes in this delightfully-flavored powdered drink.

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.
After a couple of weeks of back to back out of town events, I'm back to have my 6th #DermaLift session here at @dianastalder. 😍 Preparation includes: basic facial cleansing, facial massage using toning foam, big and small brushes. 💆 Dermalift benefits: • Reduced lines and wrinkles • Facial muscles lifted and toned • Firmer facial contours • A more youthful appearance • Finer pores due to increased elasticity • Fresher, improved circulation • Younger skin texture • Released expression and stress lines • Improved moisture retention • ADLA (Advanced Dermalift Lymphatic Activation)

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?!
Diana Stalder, 5/F Megamall Building A
Finally took that step to get my sunspots taken cared of at Diana Stalder in Megamall towards the end of June.
Consult with Diana Stalder in-house Dermatologist, Dra. Anne Capistrano
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…)
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.

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.
Calyxta just turned 1 and I got to celebrate of this go-to beauty e-shop and community. Calyxta’s party celebration was every girl’s dream of a makeover party with friends!
Everyone loves parties. Everyone also loves to be pampered. Put the two together, and you’ve got an experience that is sure to make everyone feel special.
Among the brands that guests got to try were Ciaté London, Toni&Guy, Maybelline, Browhaus, Strip, My Amazing Blow Dry Secret, and Enza Nail Spa. (more…)
