Game Changer For A Whiter and Younger You - Luminous Glutathione Patch

I am serious when I say I'm trypanophobic. Injection has been one of my biggest fears up until now (I still scream and freak out on blood test and simple vaccine procedures). So when I heard straight from my boss that there is another way of taking gluta whitening that doesn't involve injection or pills, I suddenly got giddy and excited! A product not just for whitening but also works as an anti-aging supplement, who wouldn't?

Photoblog: SuperSale Bazaar Day 3

The good thing about being involved with Marketing is that you get to meet a lot of people and go to lots of places. 

I went to SuperSale Bazaar on their 3rd day to purposely expand my network of contacts for a project I'm working on. Surprisingly, I found different online stores owned by young Filipino entrepreneurs  that sells quality products with reasonable prices. Here are some of my favorite stores:

There are so many Fab Finds here in the Philippines, isn't it?


Fab Find - Venus and Mars Naturals

I recently attended a bazaar at Rockwell Tent Makati called Fashion Palooza - A Trendsetter's Bazaar. I don't regularly go to bazaars to shop but when I heard that my favorite botanical shop will be there, I decided to drop by and grab myself a few stuff.

I'm a huge fan of natural skin care products, these are just some of my guilty pleasures. Before trying out new  brands and items, I read forums first and I search for products with good and positive feedback. And as always, I consider the price - I don't invest on anything that would only put my money to waste.

I came across this page on Facebook last July - Venus and Mars Naturals. And from then on, I regularly check on their page for updates.

Venus and Mars Summer Package
This was the very first package that I availed from Venus and Mars Naturals. They call it their "Summer Package" (Php 675 - all in!). It consists of a bottle of Spa Milk Salt, a bar of Lulur soap, the CPC+G "It" whitener, and the super famous Bare It All Cream - everything made from natural ingredients.

V&M Lulur Soap
My most loved product is their Lulur soap. When I first tried it, I was totally amazed. The effect was like "parang nawala ang pores" and it leaves the skin soft and smooth, perfect for people who have problems on rough, chicken-like skin.No wonder the feedback for this soap is really really good. Majority of the users use this to whiten and smoothen underarms. This is best used with the products included in the Summer Package.

I like cutting the Lulur soap into several pieces so I can maximize my usage
Other natural soaps from Venus and Mars are their Jagermeister Suit PORE Soap and Rewinding Stems.  

V&M Minerals - Blush and Eyeshadow
They also have their line of mineral make-up. I just got their Pretty Bliss Mineral Blush (Php 215) because of its matte finish and their Pure Pearl Mineral Eyeshadow (Php 145). And very true, their make-up can stay on the skin for long hours without retouching (I tried putting on the Pure Pearl Mineral Eyeshadow and it lasted for more than 7 hours). 

Have I mentioned their owners are very accommodating? The Tan sisters ( Jamie and Mary Justin) even helped me pick the right blush that I should put on my cheeks. :)

I can't get enough of V&M Naturals and can't wait to use their goodies too!

Visit Venus and Mars Naturals on Facebook or order items on their Multiply Site.

Thrift Tip: Choose Thrifty Clothes ;)

One reason why I love shopping at Tiendesitas is that they have a variety of pretty and trendy tops that never go out of style. Let me share what I wore yesterday (Sept. 18, 2011) when big sister and I went to ADMU for little brother's ACET:

Earlier this year, I've been filling-up my closet with tons of floral tops. I don't know why.

I got my top at Muffin Clothing for less than php 200 (they are always on sale) and my denim bottoms for only php 150. The only thing that don't belong here is the pair of red wedges I got from Milk and Co. (php 800 +), my office colleague has tons of brochures for shoes etc for orders and payable in credit terms. Hohoho~

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Christmas is almost near, have you noticed my color palette here? Haha.  


Wax-A-Way Your Summer :)

Summer is my favorite time of the year. Though I really am not a fan of the salty waters (I always end up having red rashes on my back, itchy rashes to be exact), I enjoy having long walks along the seashore of white beaches pickin' up beach stones and collecting sea shells. And of course, this is the time of the year when girls needs to show a little of their skin. ^__^ Hello summer sun!

My friends and I planned to go to Puerto Galera (Mindoro) this summer. As early as March, we've been preparing for the trip. I scouted out some colorful swimsuits (which are, of course, fashionable but not that expensive) then suddenly, *ting* waxing just suddenly popped out into my head!

For a first timer like me, I'm quite hesitant with the idea of waxing the hair out of my legs. Ouch. Masakit (painful). But with the help of (c) Google and (c) Multiply, I found the perfect product. 

Wax-A-Way Hair Removal Kit

From Happythreegirls Manila, this hair removal kit is very convenient to use. You just simply have to follow the instructions provided in the kit and in less than 30mins, you will achieve the smooth flawless legs you'll never thought you'll have.

But of course you have to test it first. 

(I tested it on my toes, hohoho~)

This only cost less than php 400 and is good for 3-4months use. Compare it to a waxing service which will cost you for about php 250-800 in one store visit, this one is actually cheaper. And is cheaper than branded wax strips that you can buy at the malls. And mind you, the seller is REALLY REALLY accommodating and friendly (she's actually a high school batchmate).

(Alyssa and me enjoying the white sand beach of Puerto Galera)

And so if you guys have plans of trying out waxing your legs, just visit their website and order this product or for faster transactions, call +639175136383 and look for Desiree. :) (This is a mega plug Des, LOL.)

Happy Summer 2011! <3
