Colour Collection Lip Perfection in Amore Review

Colour Collection Lip Perfection in Amore
Natural Light and With Flash

Red is very sensational color. Wearing it is like showing you're a woman grown and not that innocent young lady anymore. It gives a professional look and the feel of superiority. 

Lipstick with Argan Oil and Squalene

Price: P 399.00

There a times during my teenage years where I argued with mom on lipstick she insisted me to wear. She likes attention grabbing colors that somehow really complements her. Back then I wanted something safe and natural looking. The kind of lipstick that goes well with my complexion but won't give a hint that I am wearing one. Being so na├»ve during those days, I wore a red lipstick in one school occasion and a concern friend told me, “You don't look well in red”. Since then, a red lipstick is a no-no for me.

Loreal Anti Frizz Conditioner Review

For me, using different products is more frightening when it comes to hair than on face. It’s better to have breakouts than to experience hair loss and baldness. Maybe it’s because pimples are common and has cheaper and easier solution in case of the occurrence of problem. Our hair is our crowning glory and it’s always the hair that has this big part on my mood swings

Loreal Smooth Intense Anti-Frizz Conditioner Review

Despite hair loss concerns, there’s still the birth of new shampoos and conditioners in the market. Sometimes I wonder if the loss of hair is just the consequences of the enormous chemicals we are exposing ourselves. Can it be that the different formulation of shampoos has its hidden toll on us? Does it make our hair perfectly glossy and straight but it actually causes irritation on our scalp and disrupts its natural oil production? Shouldn’t we take care of the roots of our hair first?

Awkwardness of Applying for an Internet Connection

This second telecommunication company is my last option if I wanted a stable and monthly paid internet connection. My first attempt from a different company was rejected since the signal perhaps couldn't reach the area. And that's a different story.

My experience and my second attempt in availing an internet connection.

A Call from an Agent

An agent called to verify if I wanted to avail their internet plan. After confirming it's true, he only said to report to their office and call them if necessary. There is insufficient information starting here, the agent didn't say the process that a client will undergo nor did he say what necessary requirements to bring.

In the Company

Right after I sat, my ID was asked and a form was given for me to fill up. Suddenly, I just heard about the 3000 bill to be paid every month. Ooops... Everything just felt so wrong. I wasn't even aware if there is a cash in. I am deprived with necessary information (orientation and explanation) and felt trapped into submission. Good thing I have a background knowledge and a bit of experience in this area.

First VIP Experience in Sample Room (Part 2)

VIP hauls such as Digestics and Perfection Lipstick

This is just my second VIP experience and it seems that I didn't hoarded that much. I'm almost done with the first month. I ignore some products thrice hoping to have a better deal. Last time, it was all lipstick and lotions and I am not into anti-aging products. I am hesitant to avail a single product as I want to save shipping fee. I wish I was able to get some sample of Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie.

Other Expenses/Changes

From P130.00 shipping fee, the price increased and its already P140.00.

I also paid P20.00 for the transaction fee in Gcash. I was asked about the area of the receiver and I was clueless, I can't remember finding those details in the payment instruction of Sample Room. I thought they're not going to accept my from and I wouldn't be able to pay. I felt the awkwardness and the forming annoyance of the attendant. In the end, she just ignored it and personally gave me the address. What a hassle when you do things over the counter! Good thing I don’t have to pay another for fare.

Lovestruck Love Mo Siya, Sure Ka ba? by Ronald Molmisa (Book Review)

I was asking for a book as pasalubong and Geez... He gave me none.. >_< So I bugged my friend to borrow his book even though he is not done reading.

Lovestruck Love Mo Siya, Sure Ka ba? book

About the Book

“Love mo siya, Sure ka ba?” is another book of the Lovestruck series. It has a white cover design compared to the darker covering of the “Sexy Edition”. The latter has more impact and is entertaining while this one has a milder approach and serves as an introductory and a beginner guide for Filipino youth especially in the phase where a child starts to consider entering a relationship. “Should I wait a little longer?”

Hygienix Anti-Bacterial Hand Spray Review

We’re promoting a healthy lifestyle by keeping and using a hand sanitizer. It is known that hand contact is the common cause of the spreading of unwanted microorganisms. It’s a portable alternative whenever soap and water is not available as it can prevent the transmission of germs. It is also believed that alcohol-based sanitizer is more moisturizing in the skin than washing hands with harsh and drying soap. But for hands that have visible dirt, washing is recommended.

The Burial at the Cemetery of Naguilian

Balloons for Burial

They’re asking if I felt the spirit of my late Uncle for it was his 3rd day after his burial. What’s with the 3rd day ba? Sssh.. Don’t tell anyone I was so scared to sleep alone that I slipped from bed and bugged my Aunt and Lola and sleep beside them.

It’s just hard to believe that a person is done of his living days. It seems like it was just yesterday when conversations and jokes are shared. You can see life in every breath then, and now is a 'like it or not' but it’s game over. Can we possibly meet each other again? Or maybe you’re just waiting for us there in a different dimension until all our path crosses again?

Life is short so make each day fulfilling and special…

OraCare Cool Mouthrinse Review

Bottle of OraCare Cool Mouthrinse

Brushing and flossing teeth is a regimen I do to make my teeth clean and healthy. I tried using Listerine before, but I realized that flossing will do the trick to make the breath smell better. Using a soft brittle toothbrush to reach the part where dental floss cannot get through is also a good technique. Avoid brushing your teeth too hard, I saw some people do that. Besides we are only trying to remove the food residue, scrubbing hard will not make it whiter instead it can hurt the enamel of our teeth.


There are different formulations of mouthwashes and each addresses different needs. It can provide different benefits depending on the ingredients it has. It may have fluoride that helps prevent cavities, agent that fight gum diseases, freshens breath or whitens teeth. Alcohol-free are good for those who have dry mouth. To know better which mouthwash is best for you, consult your dentist.

Vaseline SPF30 Serum Review with 3x Fairness Protection Factor

SP30 serum tube

What is Serum?
Serum is a skin care product that is more concentrated with active ingredients and is water-based. It’s typically clear, light and easily absorb by the skin. It’s not as moisturizing as a cream and lotion that has oil or both water and oil.

It is good for oily skin because it doesn’t have too much moisturizing and thickening agent but still has the ingredients that our skin need. A tiny pea size of it penetrates the skin. Serum products typically have a small opening to allow pouring a lesser amount.

Seal cover of Vaseline

Having a large sample would surely give a smile on a face but the size of this tube is strange. The bottle of my last body wash is smaller when it's 200ml and this one is larger and only 180ml. I like the idea that the cap is sealed. Good thing that the font is easy for my eyes to read. The sticker on the back of the tube is intriguing.

Your Memory

Your memory will forever be kept and loved by all of us whom you have touched.”

There is an instant heavy feeling when entering a chapel especially if it's the burial of a person you have grown with. What's more heart-breaking is to see how lonely the person that is left behind. Being alone is the worst thing unimaginable, and that's what I am afraid too; the hard part of detaching yourself and missing all those happy memories.

You always know when a person is genuinely humble and kind and that's surely a regrettable death. Sometimes, those people you're not blood related with are those who are more capable of greater affection and concern.

Loaded Weekend, Blog Update

I've gotten quite busy due to the dull tasks I need to finish. I have no choice but to submit myself. Nevertheless I tried my best to catch up with blogging. I have many pending posts to make uh-oh. And I also cannot keep myself from knocking out in bed.

Here are some of the stories within that fortnight:

Promdi meets Probinsiyana

As promised. It's our anniversary and there's a sudden unplanned celebration. The simplicity is almost a perfect bliss if only an ill luck didn't happen. There are still highlights of this special day such as seeing priceless joy right through the eyes of my better half and then followed by tears I found flowing in his eyes. How often would you see a guy cry?

The Loss of Phone

This is how I spoiled everything and is the ill luck I am referring. This loss has paralyzed me and took me days before the nightmare subsided then finally found the acceptance. The sim has a sentimental value for it's a bridge of the big events and breaks in my life. It's a remembrance of the fruit of my labors and it has accompanied me for a long span of years. This loyal sim had been with me like a silent friend in the best and hardest days in my life. Goodbye sim...nothing is permanent with gadgets.

The Death

The cancer has finally taken his last breath. What's hurt most is the years that was stolen and the pain that he has to endure. The last word “Babalik ako Nay ha” is unforgettable. I took a nap and heard him say near me “Don't tell them, I'm here”. I woke up and said I heard him in my dreams, too late I spilled the beans before I realize. That's the day he died.


How I love to brainstorm and learn. How nice to make my brain working again. I love to work with people and especially with enthusiasts. I wanted to be trained and see how far I can reach. I wanted to work in a team who can confidently share their knowledge. The big problem is unstable internet connection and learning the basics alone.

Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash Review

A long soak in a tub of milk seems a wonderful experience to indulge with. It’s a luxury of wealthy woman of the past and a way to relax ourselves while we get out of the buzz of our busy world.

I learn about Dove because of the old book I used to read. It has different suggestions for mild cleansers such as Cetaphil and Dove although it’s really the commercial that push me further. There is this Dove bar soap which claims to have no preservatives and is packed in a white and green box that I use before. I only stopped because of the myth that moisturizers are bad for oily type of skin.

Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash Bottle

Milk baths benefits dry or sensitive skin. The milk helps moisturize the skin because of its fats and proteins. However, vitamins in milk are not really absorbed by the skin if topically applied. These vitamins are either intended to be consumed orally and would benefit inside instead. Some ingredient needs to be altered first to become compatible to our skin.

Lovestruck Sexy Edition by Ronald Molmisa, Book Review

Sex Education has never been successful. It’s more of a matter of debate than really educating the youth. Does telling about the reproductive parts of both male and female enough to orient the kids in the school or each need a comprehensive counseling? Or the insufficiencies belong to the old education system?

It’s mostly the awkwardness than the conservative manner of Filipinos that hinders the awareness of children at home. Our parents are not typically trained especially in this part. Being a good guardian/parent is not a part of academe, so we usually devise our own way, mimic others or impart what was taught to us by our own parents. As of now, can you picture yourself teaching sex education to your kids? Do you know how or are you properly equipped?

The Sad Truth about Commuting Life

The normal day to day activities found in our community serve as a mirror of our present values. It may sound silly but it’s usually in jeepneys and other medium of transportation that a great part of population meets. We admittedly ignore each other and become witness of our own reflection and those good and best forgotten deeds.

Traveling at Night in aTricycle

Things have change that you have to remember the plate number of tricycle you are riding and text it at home. One night, I asked a tricycle driver what the fare is and said P50. I didn't know it costs like that.

No One Moves

You know that the jeep still occupies 5-6 persons but no one seems to like you as their seatmates. Then you have to really say "Excuse me" to get someone move. Older folks differ, they're the own who moves to get you occupied, they also sometimes let there little kids sit in their laps.

First VIP Experience in Sample Room

Sample Room Products in bubble wrap

Aside from temporary distraction, sample room is a once in a while pampering for every woman to look forward. There is also those subscription boxes that caters this kind of free sampling, the only difference is you cannot choose what you get. The mysterious box will arrive in your doorstep with just the right amount of surprise to tickle your heart. Sounds like I am advertising >_<. As of now, going through that experience can wait.

Though still sad due to the loss of my phone even it's just an ordinary one, it was a very nice tap in the shoulder to receive my parcel quickly. Thanks Sample Room for this great job and for accommodating me well especially after that ill luck. The queries in email were answered quickly and that's a plus point for them.

New Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion with Microreflectors Review

Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion Review

I got this Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion from sample room right after I exhaust my last lotion. I’m quite skeptical about the product but I want to know what the fuss is all about. I was surprised when I saw the size; it’s bigger than the 100ml I was expecting and I’m happy for that.

Consistency of Vaseline

My initial impression was, “Why pink?” and “Why is that it almost has a watery consistency?” I am expecting some glittery particles but it was like a liquid pink foundation applied in the skin. I didn't find myself glowing on my first use, I even felt my arms is a shade darker as if I was fresh from sun burn. I only applied 1 layer on my skin that time. It was like a real life blurry effect of a Photoshop. I didn't notice the effect of pink shade in my legs where I have a whiter complexion.

It's a Shame That There is Still That Double Standard

It's a Shame That There is Still That Double Standard

There are still conservative type of kin relationship despite the continuing liberation of our beliefs and preferences. Finding new activities adds up to another distraction and increase of gap. We forget about the borrowed time, that we will soon have to say goodbye with the people around us. We focus on the pleasure of material thing, swayed in the lust and ecstasy of less important desires that we forget that it's still the living relationship that completes us.

It's always the wise saying, “Live like it's the last day of your life” that I embrace when it comes to any relationship. Being older now and have tasted what's life outside the zone make me fail to remember once in a while what I hold as an ideal when I was a kid.

Bench Daily Scent Refreshing Oil Control Powder

Bench Daily Scent Refreshing Oil Control Powder

I just wanted to change my brand once in a while and then I found this Bench Daily Scent Powder. I was hoping that the “oil control” thingy will work. I didn't find a very noticeable change in my face within my usage. I still apply as frequent as how I apply other powders. Smells like one of their perfumes.

When full, there is a tendency of getting more than what you needed. Whenever I sleep and miss removing it, I always have breakout of around 1-5 pimples, even when its only an afternoon nap. That's the case when I use Eskinol, I get more sensitive with talc or some ingredients of loose powder. Though it rarely happen when I removed Eskinol in my regimen, something that I have observed.

New Palmolive Naturals Body Wash Milk and Olive Review

Palmolive Naturals Body Wash with Sponge
The free puff is for limited edition only.
It's the bottle that hooked me and yes... curiosity. The green and white combination is like a neon light that blinks freshness in every angle. It claims to have milk and olive oil that just compliments to the gleaming word “Naturals”. How often would you fine a brand that invests in bottle's aesthetic? It still causes me confusion about why some famous brand still makes aesthetically unappealing container. Maybe it's still “don't judge the book by its cover” and because they're already common, established or massively produced. And they don't need to have to improve their physical appearance to tempt their consumers

Colgate Charcoal Bristles Toothbrush Slim Soft

Colgate Charcoal Bristles Toothbrush Slim Soft

Charcoal has been known to use in refrigerators and in sack of rices to deodorize. It's primarily used as a fuel for cooking and in food poisoning cases to neutralize and prevent its progress. It acts as a filtering agent because of its ability to absorb different chemicals. This absorbing and detoxifying power makes the charcoal popular in different beauty products. However, it can also absorb good elements such as nutrients, vitamins and mineral. It doesn't have a profound effect to stronger acids and bases and may even interfere in improperly used.

Charcoal becomes activated when its surface area become became bigger due to the mixture of another agent or when heated with a gas, making it different than ordinary charcoal.
