My November SaladBox

Behold, Kikay Corner’s first ever Beauty Box Sample Subscription – SaladBox! This post is a sneak peek of my November SaladBox. While most beauty box subscriptions would deliver only samples of products, my SaladBox has full sizes of products save for one.

November 2012 SaladBox | From Hair to Heels

From SaladBox:

Hey there!

November is coming to an end, and with all the rush that the upcoming holidays bring, we know how stressed you may be at this time of the year. Work and personal stuff (READ: holiday shopping) can be too tiresome and time-consuming to give us even just a short while to relax and pamper ourselves.   Allow us to treat you with some fun products from our featured brands this month.

Whole body pampering has been a beauty junkie’s life-long wish (or at least starting college), and we’ve handpicked samples (and some treats!) that will definitely soothe and beautify your body —from hair to heels.

All treats and no tricks,

SaladBox team 


All treat and no tricks, indeed! SaladBox’s beauty box is loaded with full sized beauty products!


TOMS’ Advocacy: One for One

With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give  pair of new shoes to a child in need.  One for One.  —-> www.TOMS.com

I am beyond impressed. While I know that a lot of brands are tapping into different advocacies, this One for One is something else entirely. Most brands will just give a minute amount of their sales. But TOMS is at it One for One. That’s more than just zero guilt when buying their product. I love, love, love it! I haven’t bought a pair of TOMS yet. But this is definitely giving me the go signal. Especially after seeing the wedges in TOMS Holiday Collection.

TOMS has given away 1,000,000 pairs of shoes as of September 2011! This is with the help of TOMS NGO partners which are quite a few. This is understandable for the company to sustain their advocacy.

Above are TOMS NGO Partners in the Philippines. It is lovely to see familiar Christian organizations in the list like GCF and YWAM. 🙂

As I was downloading videos from youtube, here is what I saw –> a sneak peek on how TOMS go about their task.


My Coppola Keratin Smoothing Treatment Experience at Henri Calayag

It was more than a month ago when I decided to have my hair undergo Keratin Smoothing Treatment or what is more commonly called nowadays as Brazilian or Express Blow Out or Permanent Blow Dry at Henri Calayag Salon.

Before the treatment

As what I would usually do with my previous reviews, I had to sit this Keratin Smoothing Treatment out for a month at least just so I know I will be providing an accurate review. This was a birthday treat for my brittle and unmanageable hair.

My visit to Henri Calayag prior to this, I was told several times over by Richard (Junior Creative Director-above photo) how dead my hair was and there is no way on earth it can survive another rebonding treatment and not fall off on me. Digital Perming is also out of the question. No more harmful chemicals from there on out. All I really needed was sort of revive my hair back to “normal” and I was willing to try anything.  I have had badly damaged hair for as long as I can remember and brushing has been a chore if not for the anti-frizz serums that I used.

The Permanent Blow Dry/Brazilian Blow Out/Express Blow Out procedure was way simpler than that of rebonding.

1. My hair was shampooed with Coppola Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Clarifying Shampoo twice.

2. Hair was blown dry 100%.

3. Coppola Hair Treatment Solution was applied all over my hair. (more…)
