Packaged in a beautiful bento wrap, a box of the Dr. Morita Whitening & Moisturizing Essence Facial Mask was sent to me the other day. I am thrilled because the two main ingredients of this mask is Hyaluronic Acid from Japan and Mandelic Acid from Germany. Since I have sensitive and dry skin, wow! I feel like these mask was perfectly made for me and for other girls with the same skin condition as mine.

DIY Bridal Shower Gift Idea

– Curate your love 

IMG_3549

I recently attended a friend’s bridal shower which we planned weeks ahead. Usually, when I attend occasions likes this, what I buy for the bride-to-be are sexy and kinky things. This time though, I thought of giving my friend something personalized and things that she can really use. I googled for personalized gift ideas until I came across Pinterest and became inspired with the bridal survival kit

A bridal survival kit basically contains little things that can possibly need by the bride before, during and after her wedding day. Since I coordinated weddings before, I pretty much have an idea on the stuff that might save the bride’s life.

My Digital Perming Disaster and What I did to Revive my Hair

– Grab yourself a bowl of pop corn or any snacks because this is gonna be a pretty long story time hehe! 🙂

IMG_3495Okay so, finally …  after years of contemplating, I finally decided to turn my straight hair into curls. Well, I had my reservations because when you have unnatural curls, you will need to do extra care to maintain your locks. It means extra products and extra effort. But anyway I said to myself that I will give it a go just for a change, you know what I mean girls *wink. 

First things first, I wanted to check if my one year old rebonded and colored hair is healthy enough to be permed and endure more chemicals. So I went to Tony and Jackey last May 11. They asked me if there are other treatments done to my hair before like keratin treatment, brazilian blowout or if I have my hair bleached. I said no with certainty. Alas! after my stylist approved that my hair can be digitally permed plus made me aware about their ongoing promotional discount for their services, I decided to push with the perming on that same day.

They offered me the ultimate package for digital perm that includes hair coloring, a hair treatment they called rescue 911 and a hair cut for P5,000.00, originally priced at P9,300.00, pretty good deal! We started the service at 4:30 PM and ended at around 8:15 PM so that’s almost four hours long – tiis ganda besh! :p

THE DISASTER!

Cleansing in Tandem! Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water & Sanicare Compact Cotton Pads Review

– Current favorite duo! –

I’m such a big fan of micellar cleansing waters. In fact, I already tried micellar cleansing waters from brands such as: Maybelline, L’oreal, Garnier (pink cap-for sensitive skin), Simple, Nivea, Ponds, La Roche Posay and Benton Cosmetics. They all did the job of effectively cleansing my face and some of them can even remove waterproof makeup. But if you’ll ask me what’s my top favorite, that would be my latest discovery… the Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water from Garnier. Want to know why? Let me break down the reasons.

A’BLOOM FRUIT SHEET MASKS  

A’Bloom released four “fruity” sheet mask variants tagged as recipe for sparkling skin. The packaging is just so happy and pretty to look at. Even the names are well-thought of really, really nice! Each mask retails for only P20.00 (yes, you read it right!) but since I got them by 10’s, I only paid P18.00 a piece. On the duration of the launch, Althea had a 10+10 promotion, sadly I got confused with the mechanics and wasn’t able to avail it. But it’s okay, some of my blogger friends got confused too (and that makes me feel good in a way haha!).
