Lay's NEWEST Flavor, "Salted Egg" is Finally HERE! #LaysBringTheFlavor | Philippines



What will you do if a large, yellow, luggage-inspired box hit your doorstep one stormy afternoon? Then as you look at the front part, you'll find a bold print which says "The Snack Surprise", surrounded with the logos of some popular snack brands...


Well you gotta do what you gotta do---UNBOX IT RIGHT AWAY because it is from FRITOLAY!! Yeah!




Hahaha! I hope you liked the intro guys! :)

And TADAAH! I didn't expected that Lay's will come up with a new flavor, and it's something that we all crave for: SALTED EGG!!! 


For a quick first impression: The Lay's logo here, as well as most of the product information are written in  foreign letters. Which made me conclude that it was purposely created for a certain market. Regardless of that being said, I still love the packaging and the overall feel of this product. I think it shall be well-received by the Filipinos :)





But the question is: "How was the taste?" Did I lived for it? How was it compared to the good 'ol flavors of Lay's? 


Mmm...well they somehow nailed this one, because I totally LOVE IT! The delicate flavor of salted egg was carefully infused in every potato chip, making it deliciously addicting! I also noticed that it has this controlled amount of 'spicyness' which helps a lot to make it not so "nakaka-umay" at all. And yeah, I finished a bag in just a snap. Thank you very much!




Lay's Salted Egg is now exclusively available at ALL 7-11 stores nationwide! So grab some and enjoy the salted egg craze with your family and friends! Don't forget to share your photos and use the hashtags: #LaysBringTheFlavor #LaysSaltedEgg

WIN over PHP 220,000 worth of PRIZES from Super Delights Brownie Bites!



The first time I tasted this brownie was way back 2018, when my sister brought home a bag. I can still remember that we consumed everything down to the last bits because it was so heavenly delicious! 


Just recently, I received a package from Super Delights and was surprised to see that my favorite brownie bites has a new look---and a very exciting offer!






Before we jump to the "exciting offer", I will first share a few thoughts...

My busy lifestyle consistently demands for a snack that is quick, yummy, and at the same time pack with energy-boosting ingredients! Good thing a bar only contributes to 60 calories, so I'll never be too guilty to indulge in one or two bites daily.  




And did you know that you can experiment with brownie bites? You can either heat in the microwave or chill inside the fridge. But if you want to impress your house guests, you can serve it to them with ice cream on top (instant brownie ala mode!) or with a cup of milk or hot chocolate. You'll be the best host for sure!


Yet the most awesome thing here is the fact that you no longer need to bake whenever you are craving for brownies! Easy and affordable :)




Are you now craving for some brownie bites? Oh here's another awesome news! Super Delights will be giving away PHP 220,000 worth of prizes on Instagram! All you have to do is following the mechanics below to join:

I Had my Facial and Diamond Peel at Slimmers World Face and Skin Clinic (Bacoor Center) | REVIEW


I have a fair knowledge about Slimmers World as one of the top fitness brands in the country (Philippines). Though to be honest, I haven't seen or been to a branch in my twenty-plus years of existence, not until a few months ago. 



For the record, they already have 23 centers strategically scattered around Metro Manila, 2 in Subic, and another 2 in Cebu. Now if you'll visit Thailand, they also have 3 centers situated in Bangkok. And it was only this year when Slimmers World opened its door to CaviteƱos, and to the rest of the Filipinos living in South Luzon. This made me so excited because I've been longing to hit the gym again and get back in shape (as if, hahaha!). 



Image may contain: text



But to my surprise, Slimmers World is not just about health and fitness all along, because they have also committed themselves in making the "skin" beautiful. And of course, I can't let this opportunity pass---I have to try their skin services ASAP! 


Now here's the full video of my Facial and Diamond Ultra Peel session at Slimmers World Face and Skin Clinic - Bacoor Center:






To sum it up, I generally enjoyed the experience.  Though I must say that there was nothing super special on the way they did my facial and diamond peel (expect for being really gentle during cleansing and pricking), good thing it was kind of "extensive". Why? Because they gave me a 'mask' as part of the treatment, and not an add on. It is a complete treatment for the price of one. Yasss!


Will I have my facial / diamond peel again? YES.

Will I recommend it to my family and friends? YES. 

Definitely YES because the service is great. Let me enumerate the reasons:

  • I had my FREE initial consultation
  • I was treated in a clean, sanitized, and cozy room
  • I was handled with utmost care and courtesy
  • I was spared from the painful picking
  • I was given a chance to provide some feed backs
  • I love the result! 


So if you are looking for a skin clinic, allow me to recommend SWFSC-Bacoor Center. The doctors, skin consultants and technicians are ALL well-mannered and very accommodating. 


I'll drop this digital coupon as well, which you may present upon visiting their clinic to avail FREE facial and 10% discount on all their skin treatments. Hooray!




Hoping to see you on my next visit! Leave a comment below if your have further queries, and I'll try my best to answer them. You may also follow SWFSC-Bacoor Center on their socials:

Lay's Philippines "Snack Overload' Promo 2019: Buy 2 bags, Get a free snack!



Who doesn't love FREE stuff? No one of course! Especially if it's a FREE SNACK?! 




Another reason to hoard our favorite FritoLay snacks is their newest and hottest "snack overload" promo! Just by simply buying two (2) stickered bags, you'll get to enjoy a FREE snack! And you have three choices: 

a. A box of 3 glazed doughnuts from Krispy Kreme
b. A dessert pizza courtesy of Yellowcab
c. A chicken burger with cheese by Max's Restaurant

Participating products are Lay's, Doritos, and Cheetos---you can mix and match any flavors! Yay!


#LaysSnackOverload




And of course, I have to experience this for myself; so after finishing a bag of Lay's and Cheetos, I head over to Krispy Kreme (at SM City Bacoor) and exchanged them for some yummy glazed doughnuts. To my surprise, I was asked to pay 60 pesos before I can claim my supposedly "FREE" snacks. Hmmm, that only proves the saying "There's no such thing as free lunch (or snack?!)"





Do I have hard feelings about that? Nu-uh. At least I got the other two doughnuts literally for FREE (haha!). To be honest, I don't consider LAY'S as one of my "daily" snacks. Given its pricey nature, I would still go for the local ones. But let us also be real with the fact that the former has more flavor in it, and is made with premium ingredients; thus justifies the high price point. And promos like this gives us an opportunity to indulge without too much guilt, since we are getting a bit more of what we actually paid for. Agree?





I still have a bag of Lay's sour cream and Doritos here, so I think I'll be getting the dessert pizza next! :) Hopping I won't be asked to pay for it again hahaha! *fingers crossed* 


The promo period is from May 1 to June 30, 2019. You can redeem your FREE snacks until August 31, 2019. Make sure to cut out the stickers and visit the participating branches before that date! Let me know your experiences by leaving a comment below :)



And she snack happily ever after...

Althea Korea launched their newest in-house brand, A'BLOOM | Review


There's no stopping Althea Korea from expanding their own skincare and makeup line, and I am nothing but excited to see more from them! They already amazed us with the first wave of their tints, eyeshadow palette, and concealers. And now, they  have just launched their very own in-house brand called A'BLOOM. 





A'Bloom is visualize as Althea's beauty playground, wherein all the fun, quirky, and fresh k-beauty products can be found. It first kicked off with the cutest  (and i bet tastiest, haha!) makeup sponges ever, a much-needed blackhead remover stick, and sweet fruit masks.
I received the items two weeks ago, and here are my thoughts about them (plus some useful info). Are you ready to 'PLAY UP'?


MERINGUE PUFFS




The Product: The first Althea-made beauty tool, that come in two sizes: Giant puff and Baby puffs. Both are made of latex-free and toxic-free materials. Can be used either damp or dry, and expands up to 1.5x in size when wet. 

GIANT PUFF | 100 php


BABY PUFFS | 140 php



The Verdict: Aesthetically speaking, these puffs are one of the most attractive makeup sponges in the market. The appearance and "feel" of the puffs tells me so much of its quality. However, the Giant puff is not that soft even when damp, unlike the Baby puffs. Both expands, or increase in size, but not too much. 

As to makeup application: I tried the Giant puff in applying BB cream and foundation and I noticed that it does absorbs a lot of the product (which is common with makeup sponges). Moreover, I find it a little challenging to blend my base using it, though it resulted to a light, dewy finish which I like. Now with the Baby puffs, I adore them so much because they are actually great for blending concealers, and for covering the hard to reach areas (eg. sides of the nose). 

I think they are not the best makeup sponges that I've tried so far. But for the price point, quality and safety, I will highly suggest that you pick these cute puffs over the regular ones.   


FRUIT MASK SHEETS



The Product: Comes in four variants, each contains natural fruit extract along with some skin-loving ingredients. These masks aim to address the common skin dilemmas: dullness, uneven skin tone, blemishes, and aging. Each mask boasts a whole bottle of essence in it (25 g), that is highly concentrated. 

The tencel sheets are eco-friendly, and are made using 100% Eucalyptus tree; No formaldehyde, no heavy metal, and no optical whiteners. Moreover, these masks has a slightly acidic pH balance, which aim to rebalance the pH level of the skin after washing. 

20 php. Contains lemon, lime and green tea extracts

20 php | contains watermelon and lavender extract

20 php | contains peach and tea tree extracts

20 php | contains avocado and hibiscus extracts


The Verdict: I love sheet masks and I've tried a lot of different brands for the past years. But these fruit masks are my new favorites! They are very affordable to begin with, but most importantly, they actually work on my skin. Too bad that they are currently sold out on Althea's website, because I've consumed all four  (plus the second batch that I ordered) already. 

The good stuff that I like about these masks are: (1) the sheet is so thin, and has several cuts on it; making it very easy for me to adjust/lay on my face. (2) the "juice" or essence is overflowing; meaning I get so much product in just one sheet mask, that I can even cover my neck! (3) each has its own main ingredient that literally addresses my skin's needs at a particular moment. Overall, they are super worth it, and one of the cutest masks ever!


BHA BLACKHEAD BLASTER

200 php | contains white willow, charcoal, apricot seeds, and tea tree leaf extracts



The Product: A natural BHA stick that promises no pain removal of blackheads and whiteheads. It deeply cleanses and and prevents future formation of comedones. 



The Verdict: It is actually my first time to try this kind of product, but i'm expecting a lot since I would want to replace my painful nose strips. I used it only on my nose and noticed improvements after a couple of days. Yup, the result is not instant tho, but it does help in gently removing blackheads. Just don't expect your pores to be squeaky clean on the first wash. 



I like that it contains BHA, since I'm a fan of this amazing ingredient for gentle exfoliation. Plus, it also contains some pore-friendly ingredients too. 

I hope you could visit the following links so you can get to know these products better. Althea Korea is very responsible in keeping their "angels" informed about their products. So go check them out!

Meringue puffs: 

Fruit Masks:

Blackhead Blaster Stick:

Alright! So that's all for now, we just have to wait for more products to come out, and I'm sure they'll be cute and fun to use as well :) 





Beauty is fun, make sure to enjoy it!

BRA TALK: Comfort and Confidence | Avon Fashions NEW Body Illusion 2019 Review



Okay, these new products shook me. I mean, are they for REAL??!


Well for someone who is trying to perform several roles in her late twenties; from being a blogger and content creative, to an online girl boss with a 9-5 job in a casino, it is surely one hell of a ride every single day---and I should always keep up! Like nothing can stop me from accomplishing my duties, as well as pursuing my passion, not unless something keeps on bothering me. And most of the time, *whispers* "It's what I wear inside"






Alright, I'm talking about undergarments here, ladies! Yup, our ever-dependable bras and panties of course! And who among you will agree with me that these two can definitely make or break our day too? Come on, no matter how beautiful your blouse or dress is, if your bra gives you a very uneasy feeling, you can't simply be confident while wearing it. I know the feeling, because I often experience the "struggle".


#StruggleIsRealwithmyUndies



But who would have thought that such day would come, and I'll be so lucky enough to try these new products from AVON Philippines! Do you think I already found my soul mates?



AVON Fashions recently launched their ALL NEW BRAS and PANTIES under their Body Illusion innerwear line, which promise to give Filipina women seamless comfort and flexibility. The Body Illusion underwear, made with AVON's very own Invisilite material,  comes in two pairs: CHARLENE (underwire seamless bra and laser-cut panty) and SONIA (non-wire seamless pull-on bra and laser-cut panty). You can watch the short video below:




Though what's important here is to know if my own pair of Body Illusion underwear delivered what was expected. 

Oh my, I still want to delay this, but...YES, THEY DID! 


Now I'll try to give you a detailed review of CHARLENE. So what I got was a 34B underwire bra and a medium size hipster panty, both in Tuscany color. For the first impression (when I was not yet wearing them), I must say that:

1. Both appeared to be ordinary for me, in terms of design / style, and nothing really special. But I do appreciate the simplicity and functionality of the overall appearance. The thickness of the cups' foam is just right, and the width of the straps are just perfect for sleeveless tops. And for the panty, I pretty much like the cut. 

2. As I hold them, I was very impressed with the actual weight and 'feel' of both innerwear. They are super light (as in crazy light, and I can't believe it's actually possible for a bra with underwire), and feels very, very smooth on the skin (like where in the world did they got those kind of materials?)

3. Looking closely, I can say that both products are of high-quality. There are no seams on the fabric, yet the parts where the edges meet were sealed nicely. Plus, I was able to stretch both garments really hard, but they still manage to go back to their original form.


Here's a closer look:


Charlene Seamless Hipster Panty (Medium)

Can stretch up to twice it's original size

Laser-cut edges

Seamless, thus won't show through tight clothing



Charlene Seamless Underwire Bra (34B)


Eyeglass silhouette with ultra-soft foam cups

Underwires are not stiff nor heavy

Laser-cut edges

Foams are not too thick

Straps are soft and not too wide


The bra costs 899PHP, while the panty is sold at 299PHP. Quite pricey for me, but with the above impressions, I must say that I'm already half convinced to purchase another set. 


Of course, I also tried wearing both innerwear. Worn the Charlene bra and panty for three (3) alternate days, now here are my full thoughts about them:


1. They are my perfect fit. It has been a decade of struggle for me to find a comfortable cut for my undies, but I always end up with the "almost perfect" (either the bra cups are too big, or the straps are a few centimeters short). Now, I just look into the mirror with full pleasure. I just feel good in them. 


2. They are the most comfortable pair. When I slip on my corporate uniform on the first day, it was an odd yet great feeling to NOT really notice my undies! I can't see traces of them, and can't actually feel them underneath! No more pulling up and down, keeping my bra and panty in place---I was able to move all day in peace.


3. They never lose their form and are easy to maintain. I washed them for three times, and noticed that they are easy to clean and dries up pretty fast. Both retained their shapes perfectly even after washing. 



The perfect partner of a #girlboss


When it feels so light as air...


Indeed, I was even more confident to move around, accomplish tasks and go beyond my goals set for each day. All thanks to my new partners-in-crime! I will definitely switch to these bras and panties that can support my daily activities and will never get in the way. By the way, Body Illusion bras and panties are available in wide range of sizes, so you don't have to own the society's standard body size just to enjoy comfort.


#ForAllBodyShapesandSizes


Truly, every good thing starts from the inside. And with a pair of comfortable underwear, you can do anything and achieve everything as a WOMAN. Now that is FREEDOM.





Cheers to the unstoppable women!

Bye-Bye Double Cleansing! Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser | REVIEW


Alright, so Althea released another skincare product. And this time, it's another multi-function item! (Remember their Petal Velvet Sunaway? It's not just an ordinary sunscreen, but can also control sebum and serve as a good makeup base) They are slowly building their own skincare line! 


Actually, I have already tried the Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser, and if I am to describe the experience, it will simply be: "UNEXPECTEDLY AWESOME".




So in this blog post, I'll provide the detailed review of the product (though you already have a hint that I love it, hehe). And if you want to see it's actual effect on my skin, watch the video that I uploaded on my YouTube channel below:





Now let's jump to my review:


THE PRODUCT


The Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser comes in a 150 ml, slightly tinted plastic bottle. And since the container is somehow transparent, you can easily see the consistency of the liquid inside. When dispensed, the liquid's texture is similar to a cleansing oil (though it's less oily), and smells like mint (though not that strong). 


As I applied the liquid on my damp face, I noticed that it do not form lather (at all). It's like massaging your face with light serum, and honestly, it did not convinced me enough that I'm actually cleansing my face. However, I immediately noticed that it melts my makeup really quick. And as I rinsed my face, my skin felt so tight, clear and clean.


The complete ingredients list:

Water, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Cyclomethicone, Isononyl Isononanoate, Dipropylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Mentha Arvensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Citric Acid, Hydroxyacetophenone, Disodium Edta, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Citrate, Butylene Glycol, Fragrance

The key ingredients are:

Mint leaf extract
Jojoba seed oil
Tea tree leaf extract





According to Althea Korea's website, the product incorporates the "Dual Moisture System". It is a combination of water and oil, in overlapping layers, that gently yet effectively remove makeup and dirt residue. Also, it is suitable for ALL skin types, especially those with sensitive skin, since it can create a protective moisture barrier on the skin and has a pH level of 5.5 ~ 6.5. 


THE VERDICT

Okay, this is another genius product from Althea. I was not head-over-heels during the first use, but after the second, third, and so on, I never washed my face with any cleanser anymore. Here are the reasons why:

  • It cleanses deep down my pores, for real. My T-zone area never felt so clean (with normal cleansing), unless I exfoliate (which normally dries out the skin). 
  • It serves as a double-cleansing product (I can now skip my cleansing oil and facial wash). Perfect whenever I'm in a hurry, or just tired of my complex skincare routine.
  • It retains moisture excellently. No dry feeling after washing, plus, it always makes my skin look so plump and hydrated.
  • Its price is not that economical, yet can be justified by its quality. Well a little amount can cleanse the entire face already, so I guess a bottle can go for a month or two (which is pretty long).


Well it is so gentle, yet act so strong...am so confused! All I can say is that you have to TRY this product, because it works like magic! You may check out Althea's website: https://ph.althea.kr/pore-purifying-serum-cleanser for more details.



Hope you enjoyed this review! Let me know your thoughts, just leave a comment below! Thank you for dropping by, will see you again :)
