Vitress Hair Solutions

I have begun taking care of my hair more ever since I received my loot from Vitress. I'm honestly lazy when it comes to y hair because I'm blessed with manageable hair. I usually just brush it and I'm good to go. No styling necessary. But after tying it in ponytails, I see dents in my hair and sometimes, I even see frizz. So Vitress Hair Solutions really help tame my hair. You can also get your free samples at SampleRoom.

Here are the different variants to choose from:

Vitress Strengthening Hair Polish (100ml= P56.00, 50ml = P35.00)
This light cream uses Vita Strength Formula to help prevent split ends and breakage for strong, shiny hair.

Vitress Long-Lasting Fragrance Hair Polish (100ml= P56.00, 50ml = P35.00)
Thanks to its Scent-Infinity Complex, this non-greasy cream keeps your hair smelling fresh, fragrant, and looking shiny throughout the day.

Vitress Sun Protect Hair Polish (100ml= P56.00, 50ml = P35.00)
If you’re always under the sun, use this cream that’s spiked with a unique Sun-Defense System to shield your strands from the hair-damaging UV rays. 

Vitress Hair Cuticle Coat (50ml= P87.00, 15ml= P38.00, 30ml= P67.00) 
This special serum contains a blend of silicone that wraps and seals each strand to protect it from damage and breaking. It gives your hair instant and intense shine, softness, smoothness, protection, and manageability.

Vitress Instant Relax Cuticle Coat (30ml= P75.00, 20ml= P49.00)
Can’t tame stubborn curls or wavy hair? This hair oil uses Vita-Relax Technology to help flatten unruly, wavy hair for a naturally straighter look.

Vitress Hair Repair Cuticle Coat (30ml= P75.00, 20ml= P49.00)
If you’ve been abusing your strands with constant coloring or chemical treatments like perms or rebonding, this cuticle coat uses a Hydro-Restore System to reverse the damage. The results? Healthy-looking, satin-smooth hair!

Vitress Heat Protect Cuticle Coat (30ml= P75.00, 20ml= P49.00)
This protective hair oil uses a unique Thermo-Shield Complex to shield your hair from the harmful effects of frequent blow-drying, ironing, curling. This way, you can wear the style you want without worrying about the damage.

Vitress Solenn Cuticle Coat (30ml= P80.00)
Designed and co-created by Solenn Heussaff, this hair cuticle coat tames curls and waves so you can rock smooth, silky, and shiny hair. Tress trivia: Even the powdery scent and the artwork on the bottle were designed by Solenn!

Tips On How To Use Hair Cuticle Coat:
  • Can be used on dry or damp hair.
  • Place a pea-sized amount of product only on your palm and rub together palms together. (Amount relative to length and thickness of hair).
  • Finger comb through strands.
  • Reapply and retouch as needed to continuously address the different conditions your hair will encounter—from the cold blast of your aircon to the crazy humid weather.
I personally love the Vitress Solenn Cuticle Coat and Heat Protect Cuticle Coat. And for the polish, I like the Vitress Strengthening Hair Polish. :) Let me know what your favorite is!

Hooray for Cheap Thrills!

I am not much of a spender, I really am not. I choose to spend my money wisely. ;) So you can just imagine how happy it makes me when I find cheap thrills! It excites me to the nth level. I went to Pooch Park the other day and saw this Pet Brush. I remember seeing it years back and I believe we actually used it for our husky because he sheds like crazy. Little did I know this will work great for my brushes too!

And so I decided to get it and try it out. I put a little bit of shampoo and swirled my brush around it and voila, squeaky clean brush! I used it for all of my brushes, face and eyes. It worked so well, cut my brush cleaning in half! If you're like me who owns tons of brushes and hate brush cleaning, this may be your next best friend.

Do I recommend it? Yes! It's less than P100 and it's pretty similar concept with branded ones that cost more than double. :)

FOTD: Mocha Day

Here's another FOTD post. I went out with my girl friends and they're not "that" into makeup like me so I needed to tone down my look but I still wanted to put on something. I rarely put on makeup anymore because I'm usually just home as I work from home. And so at times that I can whip out my makeup, I do! :p

So since I knew that my friends won't be wearing any makeup (or if so, very very minimal), I wanted to keep it simple and neutral. I decided to use my Lingering Mocha lipstick. When you look at it in the tube, it looks like a scary shade of brown, but as you can see in my photos below, it's not so bad. :) I'll probably do a full review on this next time so I can show you more photos and talk more about it.

Products Used:
Loreal Base Magique
Majolia Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover BO10
Krave Ultra Bright HD Concealer in Strufolli
K-Palette 1 Day Magic 3D Palette
Colour Collection Sexy Silk Blush and Contour Duo in Sweetheart

Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
LuLu Makeup Morocco Palette
Maybelline Lasting Gel Liner in Brown

LuLu Makeup Denim Blue Liner

There are times when I'm just too lazy to do my eye makeup yet I want to look somewhat made up. Ano raw? Possible ba yun? Of course! I just choose to use a colored eyeliner to give that pop of color and voila, you'll look like you spent more time doing your makeup than you actually did. Nice trick right?

I decided to whip out my LuLu Makeup Denim Blue Gel Eyeliner. This stays on the whole day (with eye primer) on my really oily lids. It's so easy to apply to!

I kept the entire face light and simple. I chose to wear light pink blush for the cheeks and nudish pink lip color just to emphasize the tint of blue on my eyes.

Why blue, you ask? Blue actually compliments brown eyes really well. And it gives more character to the eyes, don't you think? So when I want to break away from the usual black and browns, I prefer this shade as it looks very flattering on just about everyone.

I don't know about you but I think that this is a fun way of looking a little more made up without spending too much time prettifying yourself! :)

Mustela, Skin Protection for Moms and Babies

For more than 60 years, Mustela has successfully developed products to nourish and protect both babies and mothers throughout the world.  With exceptional formulation for comfort and protection, Mustela products have been proudly handed down from mothers to their children for more than three generations.

Carrying out new research in an on-going effort to better understand the needs of 
babies’delicate skin, Mustela has always been a pioneer in natural skincare solutions, and constantly innovates and integrates the latest scientific breakthroughs to best meet the needs of new parents. 

Little by little, all of these innovations have changed the daily lives of babies and their mothers, just as new concepts, new formula, new textures and increasingly practical products and packages have been introduced.

Today, Mustela has 4 product lines—Mustela 9 Months for pregnant and breastfeeding moms, MustelaBebe for daily baby care of babies and children with normal skin, MustelaDermo-Pediatrics for babies and children with problem skin, and Mustela Sun Care for safe and effective UV rays protection. These innovations have resulted in 635 patents (registered by Expanscience Laboratories) throughout the world. 

A few weeks ago (before Robyn got sick) I was able to attend Mustela's event. I was really excited because Robyn's been using Mustela since birth.

Robyn used Mustela's Newborn Shampoo (similar to the one below), though hers was the Foaming Shampoo.

And then we moved to using the 2in1 Hair and Body Wash.

Now that she's bigger, we've already tried and are using Dermo Cleansing Gel as her body wash.

And because she loves eating by herself nowadays, Physiobebe No-Rinse Cleansing Fluid has become one of our must haves!

Lexi Schulze hosted the event and she introduced the brand. But honestly, who hasn't heard of Mustela, right?

I also learned more about baby's skin. Did you know that baby's skin actually heals really fast? So if you see a wound or rash, once treated, scars don't usually form. I also learned that I should start putting sunscreen on Robyn especially now that she's already a toddler and we bring her out a lot.

3 beautiful moms, fashion blogger Christine Dychiao, fellow beauty blogger Shen Cala-or and celebrity mom Nicole Hernandez shared their motherhood experiences and also their favorite Mustela products. 

It became quite emotional and I couldn't help but feel sentimental listening to them. I missed Robyn! Haha!

Sharleen CuUnjieng, co-owner of Mustela Philippines, also shared with us how they started. Imagine, there was a point when they joined over 10 bazaars in a year. For some, this maybe nothing but I have joined several bazaars before and the hard work that comes with it, whew! I was impressed how she and her partner Tammy Chua Tancinco, consider Mustela as their baby.

I do believe in their products and I always recommend this to my peers. As moms, we want nothing but the best for our babies. And it's always a trial and error sort of thing. But I haven't been wrong about Mustela and I'm glad that with the event, I was able to educate myself more about the brand.

Mustela offers a wide range of products both for mom and baby. Here are the products that they focused on during the event:

Vitamin Barrier Cream 

It’s ideal for soothing and preventing diaper rash as its barrier effect protects and insulates thefragile skin of infants. The vitamins that the Vitamin Barrier Cream contain provide instant relief, reduce development of bacteria that they often get from urine and feces, thus, leaving the skin smooth and soft.

 Sun Protection Line

The products included in this line are also further enhanced to preserve the natural defences and the wealth of cells that are present deep down the baby’s skin. Mustela’s Sun Protection Line are also highly resistant to water, sweat, and rubbing from towels and clothing, thus, parents can allow their children to bask, play, and enjoy the getaway without having to worry about the harsh sun’s rays. 

 Stretch Marks Oil

Increases the elasticity and softness of every mom’s skin. It is specially formulated with lupeol—a natural, patented active ingredient that produces fibers that strengthen the skin to help it cope better when stretching. Furthermore, the mishmash of mush rose, baobab oils, avocado oil, sunflower oil, and the luxurious pomegranate seed to its formulation guarantee the kind of nourishment and protection that every woman dealing with the glory of motherhood deserves.

Spot your favorite Mustela product!

Thank you Mustela for the very informative afternoon! And thank you to ARC PR for the invitation! :D

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Cleansing Oil

Blogging about this baby while taking care of  my real baby. She's still currently recovering so I'm still looking after her with eyes wide open. But I wanted to use my time wisely so I'm going to share a great affordable find to removing makeup.

I have been a cleansing oil user for the longest time. I have seen the power of cleansing oils in removing even the most waterproof and bullet proof makeup.

I was given the new and improved Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Cleansing Oil. I have already used the older version few years ago and honestly, didn't think it was THAT good. That's why I never really blogged about it. I just felt like it wasn't anything special. So I was happy to find out that they have an improved version now.

Cleansing oils are better at removing oil-based makeup and cleaning out sebum from your pores. That's simply a fact. They can cleanse deeper, without damaging the skin barrier. It will get in there and blend with the oil-based makeup and excess sebum in your pores. 

Use some water to emulsify the cleansing oil – it will turn into a white liquid.  Then rinse off!  All of the makeup, dirt, and impurities on your skin will be instantly washed away, leaving you with clean, soft, and moisture-balanced skin.

Céleteque Cleansing Oil has great ingredients for the skin, like vitamin E and Phytosqualane, so that you don’t just get clean skin, you get better skin too.  It has actually been clinically tested to lessen fine lines by 77% in just 4 weeks!

Since I had low expectations, I was surprised to discover that this new version is REALLY GOOD. The packaging's different from the old one although I would have preferred a flip cap just because it's easier to open and close with oily hands. But that's the least of my concern. The quality is just so much better. It can compete with the really expensive, high end cleansing oils.

Here's how it worked on my waterproof eye makeup:

You can also see that it was able to remove my face makeup really well too. ;)

What I LIKE:
  • removes all traces of makeup
  • not greasy even though it's a cleansing oil
  • non drying
  • no stinging feeling
  • moisturizes the face well
  • only P249.00
  • widely available in the market
  • only comes in a 50ml bottle
  • bottle cover is twist type, I prefer a flip cover.

I completely fell in love with this and actually look forward to massaging it onto my face as I remove my makeup. It just leaves my face feeling soft afterwards and the best part is there's no greasy feeling. Obviously, since it's a cleansing oil, there'll be some sort of oiliness to it but it gets removed right away with toner. I don't feel the need to use a facial cleanser on top of the cleansing oil as it removes every inch of dirt on my face. I'm so happy that they came up with an improved one because this has become my bestfriend when it comes to removing tough waterproof mascaras! Do I still have to say it? Sige na nga. :p I highly recommend this product to everyone who puts on makeup.

Heroine Make Quick Eyebrow Review

I'm a big believer that eyebrows frame the face. It just brings the whole look together. I would usually go out without any eye makeup on, just filled and shaped brows. Try this, fill in and draw one of your brows- just one brow and then look in the mirror. You'll see that the side with filled brow looks more lifted and more complete. I've done this so many times before and it baffles me everytime.

 Heroine Make Quick Eyebrow 01

I was given the Heroine Make Quick Eyebrow during their press launch and I was quite excited to try it out. I remember Liz telling us that it's a great product and that she swears by it. Liz gave me #01 Dark Brown since my hair is naturally dark brown-black.

Here's my first swatch. Loved the color right away! It's not reddish, some of the eyebrow products that I see are usually reddish brown and that just doesn't look as nice for natural "virgin" hair like mine. I have always preferred greyish brown shades.

So here's how it looks on me, without any brow wax or gels.

What I LIKE:
  • easy to use
  • no need to sharpen
  • stiff, so it doesn't break easily
  • still blendable. As I mentioned, it's stiff. But I was surprised that I can still blend the product with my eyebrow brush (which is how I usually like to distribute the color evenly)
  • love the color!
  • sweat and oil proof! I don't have to worry about it moving or disappearing
  • only P345!
  • If you're used to creamy eyebrow pencils, this will take a little bit of getting used to because of its stiff end.
  • It's very fine (1.5mm) so it takes longer to fill your brows.

I have been reaching for this almost every single time I put on makeup.It's just so easy to use. The only thing is that it's pretty slim so it usually takes me longer to finish my eyebrow makeup. But I love the color, the color payoff and that it withstands my sweat and oiliness! Also, I don't really have to put on any brow gel when I use this anymore.

Remember my fresh faced post? This definitely makes me look so fresh and just completes my look! :) If you want to purchase, it's already available at Watsons! And do check out their other amazing products as well! :)
