Maine Mendoza for Betadine Fresh Bliss

Phenomenal star, Maine Mendoza, talks about self-love and self-care as she renews her contract with Mundipharma for Betadine Fresh Bliss. 

Maine Mendoza for Betadine Fresh Bliss“We always say that we can only give what we have, and I guess this is the same with love. If only we learn to love ourselves more, only then will we be able to experience true confidence. It is amazing when we start to love ourselves more each day-we feel contentment and inexplicable joy, and it starts with making the right decisions for ourselves,” Mendoza said. (more…)

Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins and Liner Advocates PCOS Awareness

Did you know that 1 out of 10 Filipina is diagnosed daily with PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome? An imbalance of the hormones estrogen and progesterone that lead to forming of tiny, benign masses on the ovaries, this condition is one of the reasons why most women experience irregular periods, infertility, inexplicable weight gain, harsh breakouts, and insomnia. While there’s still no treatment and the cause is still unknown, PCOS is manageable with the help of an OB-Gyn and a licensed dietitian. With this in mind, here are some practical tips from Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins and Liner on how to conquer PCOS:

  1. Catch it early. A regular visit to your OB-Gyn will prevent bigger problems. “Follow the old adage prevention is better than cure. “Schedule an annual gynecologic examination with blood sugar test to ensure your hormones are in check”, advises Dr. Faith Suluen
  2. Stay in shape. “Most of the women who are diagnosed with PCOS are usually overweight, but even if you weigh just right doesn’t mean you’re not prone to developing one”, says Dr. Faith Suluen. “However, since records show that there are numerous cases of PCOS on obese women, it’s strongly recommended to live up a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and balance diet. Quit smoking immediately and stop other vices if there’s any”, adds Dr. Faith.

Girl Talk: Why TLC on our Red Days? #GynePro

Did you know that menstrual blood, once discharged from the uterus, gets naturally contaminated with the body’s innate organisms, normally lurking in the vagina? The contaminated blood will then find its way from the vagina to the vulva or external genitalia. Gross but true. I’d rather go discussing these for those who actually need these lady tips. 🙂

Take Care of Your Underarms and Get a Chance to Win a Dove Deo Getaway to El Nido with #DoveGoShave

The struggle to keep our pits hair free is real. Sure, this may be one of those posts that you might just about tag with, “Too Much Information, (TMI)” but hey, it is one of those things we women have to constantly battle with. So why not get the word out on it. I have, in fact, mustered the courage to go through a few sessions of underarm laser hair removal treatment but I chickened out when I experienced darkening on the third or fourth session. But the good news is, from every couple of days shaving, it’s now down to once a week. 🙂

Because I’m back to shaving my unwanted pit hair, like 70% of Filipinas, it’s always good to arm myself with facts. Like, did you know that 1/3 of what you remove when shaving is actually skin, which leads to underarm darkening? Along with your hair, shaving takes away the top-most layer of your skin, leaving it irritated. And with continued shaving, skin is unable to heal itself and becomes bumpy, dry and dark. Yikes!

Product Feature: Priva® Perfect Care 2-in-1 Intimate Wash

I don’t know about you but I’ve always been very particular about hygiene. I guess this is typical of us, Filipinas. It may have also helped a lot that we are from the tropics, which means we have to put considerable effort on not getting too sweaty for comfort. It’s way too easy to feel icky in a rather humid weather.

After recently receiving this package from Priva and Toni Gonzaga-Soriano, I got curious what the newly-wed bride is endorsing. Intimate care is something we, ladies, have prioritized since our very first visit from Aunt Flo. 🙂

Priva® Perfect Care 2-in-1 Intimate Wash is Privia’s premium feminine wash used for everyday care of the intimate area with added benefits that specifically address their leveled-up needs. A fairer, smoother, more perfect nether region? Check. Priva® is the superior choice when it comes to meaningful intimate care benefits such as these, needs that go beyond cleansing.

Thank you, @celestinegonzaga for the belated #VDay present 💓 Soon on the blog! #priva

Beauty Product Feature: Nivea Deo Whitening Range and #NiveaFairandFirm

First off, thanks to Nivea for allowing me first dibs of their latest products. Something that I appreciate and never gets old on me. I love discovering products that raise the bar up a notch or two (or more, really). With research, development and science breakthroughs come after another, there’s no other way but for brands to level up their game and it’s always good for us consumers because a healthy competition will inevitably give us products that are superior – which for the most part, give us value for our money (with concerned issues addressed). It’s a win-win, really. The brands get their following and us consumers get our issues addressed.

Thank you to my Nivea family for sending this gift. Soon on the blog. #NiveaFairandFirm #bloggermail

@pHCarePhilippines Introduces Intimate #NaturalCare #pHCareNaturals

The awareness and importance of going natural continues to expand its reach by the day. The Wellness Generation sure has gotten its message across that more and more people are embracing the “natural lifestyle,” whether that’s by virtue of shifting to organic food or using products that are derived naturally.

phcare naturals

Its always a delight when I discover brands “go natural.” So when pH Care sent this package over the weekend, I was all smile. pH Care bottled up nature’s wonders through two popularly used ingredients, papaya and guava leaves, to come up with their all-new pH Care Naturals line in pH Care Naturals Papaya and pH Care Naturals Guava. The folks behind best-selling feminine wash pH Care have an intimate understanding of the importance of caring for your feminine area, and they expertly combine the properties of these winning natural ingredients with their mild and effective intimate care products.  (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…)
