Lamoiyan Corporation, Makers of Hapee Toothpaste, Continues to be Pinoys’ Pride

Fully Filipino-owned Lamoiyan Corporation has more reasons to smile as it continues to bring world-class quality yet affordable products that never fail to earn the peoples’ trust and loyalty, especially now that the company is in its 25thyear of existence. In perfect time with its Silver anniversary this year, the company now has more than 30,000 fans in leading social network site Facebook, and still continuously growing – a feat that only proves the unstoppable patronage it gains from the local market.

Hapee’s Facebook page served as a venue to connect with the brand’s market, most of them Filipino moms. Not only that the site served as a tool for Hapee to reach out to its market, but also it served as a page where fans can get practical household tips and useful parenting advice for everyday. And when the page reached its 10,000 mark, Hapee took the chance to hear more from their fans and asked them: “Bakit Hapee ang toothpaste mo?”

Apart from its world-class quality that is comparable to other more expensive brands, what’s also keeping consumers loyal to Hapee toothpaste is its reasonable price. According to Michelle Talaboc, while prices of some commodities continue to go up, it’s good to know that Lamoiyan remains affordable, especially for those who have less in life. This, in turn, gives her a reason to smile amid life’s challenges.


The Convenience of Swish Breath Spray

It has been years since our family last used an alcohol-based mouthwash. It was this one painful night when the hubby gargled this undiluted mouthwash that stung his throat and tongue for hours! It was the most horrible feeling, he still remembers it to this day. The dutiful wife that I am, ever since got hold of Swish mouthwash and nothing else. Swish was the very first brand we got hold of that time that’s alcohol-free. We have not thought of switching since we find the other alcohol-free brand too mild for our taste, like you have not washed your mouth at all. Kind of defeating the purpose of mouth washing, really.

Arctic Chill and Peppermint Fresh variants have since been staples in our toiletries supply cabinet.

Swish Mangosteen Mint, Swish Cinnamon Blast

I am so happy to have learned that there are two other Swish variants available in the marketMangosteen Mint and Cinnamon Blast. I have always loved mangosteen, this is a winner at first swish. While the hubby, being big on anything cinnamon, that’s clearly his.

Swish Minty Meter

And in the event that you have no clue which variant of mouthwash to pick, check out Swish’s Minty Meter. Sweet! I really am loving the mild Mangosteen Mint! Aside from the fact that it’s pink! 🙂 It has since become my default mouthwash of choice.  (more…)

A Sparkling Smile with Oral-B Pro Health

No matter how all made and dressed up you are, when dental health is taken for granted, it can totally demerit your overall look. Here is something I have been using for a whole month now – Oral-B Pro-Heath Clinical Pro-Flex toothbrush and Crest Pro-Health toothpaste. Oral-B Essential floss, I have been using for decades but had to stop to make way for interdental brushes because of my oral braces, (which I can’t wait to get off of).

Oral hygiene should always take priority, even as medical experts agree that poor dental health can actually lead to a handful of serious diseasesDepartment of Health’s study that “92% of Filipinos are suffering from dental caries while 78% suffer from gum disease,” we are far from totally saying goodbye to the most common dental health problems such as bad breath, tooth decay, gum problems, and unattractive smile.

Vouching for Mariano Dental Clinic

There was no way I would have thought that after more than a decade of having my braces removed, I was gonna have it back on! Blame it on my impacted wisdom tooth that made its way to crash on adjacent molars. One of which I lost during the odontectomy procedure that I had done in April.  Surgery was more than an hour and I went home with 7 bloody stitches! Before I scare off anyone who is undergoing odontectomy procedure, know that it was something that has to be done. Else, I’d end up losing all the molars on that side where the impacted wisdom tooth was.
