The Gap the Age Creates...

Some elders still genuinely exert effort to show themselves as our role model. They constantly remind us of what are good and bad and always in oppose with disgraceful, evil or morally wrong pursuit of the younger. But it’s impossible to question them in their personal damaging activities and habits. That is regarded as impolite. Their generation also believes that the young don’t have the right to question.

For them, being blind is better like pretending having a happy world. Choosing to believe makes the world easier and perhaps happier for them. The rest is ignored. That makes the confrontation awkward and usually unwelcome. We make ourselves a fool of hypocrisy.

Don’t share your problems. It’s voodoo. Their cup is already full to carry another load. Have you asked yourself “When did their cup ever emptied?” They don’t want to face their own fears… the truth… the reality. They let the time pass… but the time makes them bitter while they sulk in the prison they’ve built around them.

Himalaya Complete Care Toothpaste Review

Himalaya Toothpaste Box

When it comes to natural products, they have their own way of working differently. This Himalaya surprised me in this part. This is the first toothpaste I've tried that contains a lot of natural ingredients but it works and feels like a regular toothpaste. It lathers well. It also has the same minty/coolness of plain toothpaste.

What makes it different is the light gray color of its paste. The toothpaste also has a faint rubbery/plastic/gas-like taste that possibly comes from the mixture of different herbal actives. It's not that bothering and it's easy get used to. Though there are times I wonder why they didn't totally mask the after taste. What specific herbal ingredient do you think contributes to the taste?

5th Avenue Moisturizing Body Lotion Review

5th Avenue Moisturizing Body Lotion

There is no extra or new claims. Fifth avenue just works fine for a dry skin. It's a straightforward lotion with a scent that lasts the whole day. It's okay for every day use but it doesn't have SPF.

It works well with my body chemistry and blends well with my sweat. Even if it last long, the strong scent becomes subtle once you perspire. I like this than using the perfume alone. It's like wearing the real perfume. It's a good coincidence that the scent is just okay to me compared to the other highly fragrance lotions I encountered before.

20 Capsules of Belo Glutathione with Collagen

Pack of Belo Glutathione Capsules

My daily dose
1 capsule is already expensive yet you need to take 2 every day. The experience I had with weight gain pills gave me horrible migraines after. A quick result with sudden end of intake is a huge adjustment for my body. I don’t want another migraine so I decided to take one capsules a day (always at 8:30pm). Besides, I only have 20 capsules. I’m comfortable with this than taking larger dosage per day. I’m not sure if that’s just fine though.

Initial result
The change is slow. I didn’t get fairer yet it feels that my skin is still in the process for that. Perhaps it will take months but the 2 weeks experience was enough to see some change.

Pretend You Don't See Her Book Review

It would be better if the title of this book is related to the most thrilling part just like how it is with the other book of Mary Higgins Clark where the title is connected to the real murderer.

This is a page turner. I finished the rest of the book last saturday. I could have finished this on weekdays if only I was not sleepy due to the supplement I was taking. I rarely took a break that day until I came to a point I cannot stop with all the action and suspense rolling. I delay dinner and sacrificed the MMK show just to finish this.

The killer and the clues
The killer here doesn't hold a deep grudge. There was no underlying explanation like what tempted him/her to do it. The person was so random and has no conscience. This can be very dangerous if it exists in real life. Hiding secrets is the equivalent of sacrificed human life.

How did the killer knew that the victim was informed of his/her secret anyway? Who was his or her informant?

Book Cover

The only evidence which is the journal is impossible to crack alone (even if it's repeated multiple times in the book). It doesn't really divulge quick answers so the reader is left with the choice of turning the page to know who the real culprit is.

Himalaya Whitening Face Wash Review

Tube of Himalaya with saffron

Seeing a lone tube of this whitening face wash was unexpected since I'm looking forward for 2 samples like how it came with Himalaya Purifying Neem Wash. Also, the tube only contains half of the product but nonetheless a little goes a long way. I didn't use it instantly and was in the bottom of my list since I thought it was really a creamy type cleanser.

Reviewers from sample room mostly describe this as creamy. For me, it's not creamy in the sense that it has an oil or leaves a similar feeling.

This Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash has:
  • Saffron
  • Licorice
  • White Dammer
  • Pomegranate
  • Cucumber

It has some plant extracts along with huge list of unfamiliar ingredients that is either chemical or synthetic (correct me if I'm wrong). I'm into organic product but I have qualms and unanswered questions regarding the potentials and possible side effect of organic ingredients.

Friends & Change


All of our friend will change. It's either because of the distance or a change of interest. But to totally ignore is fair weather.

Uncertainties of forever
Friendship is still a kind of a relationship. There's trust involved but the level of commitment is more on optional. They can be gone in a sudden and it makes us realize that our family is the one that really stays. Our family is our family and that will never change whether we like it or not. Your friends? They have different lives. They are raised differently and they are continuously influenced by the people around them (some of the things you would probably miss when you both stop being together).

Having a friend is still different
It's either they have forgotten you first or you have forgotten them. Then you came back and everything has changed. We don't have that much choice but to ride with the flow. We left our friends behind searching for replacement. Finding a same female buddy gets hard as we get older too. Our priorities in life changes and we seek for partners rather than friends. When will you miss that kind of friendship?

In this short journey of life, sometimes a friend can complete the ride.

Book Review | While My Pretty One Sleeps by Mary Higgins Clark

I still have 2 other books to read. One of them is still a book of Marry Higgins Clark. I've already made a review of the first book of her that I've read which is the “We'll Meet Again”. It's a better read than this book but it seems that the previous review I made fall a bit short in showing my appreciation.

This book has a label “#1 New York Times Bestselling Author” instead of “The #1 New York Times Bestseller” which gave me the impression that it's not that best compared to “We'll Meet Again”. The last book I will read doesn't have a label at all but hopefully I can bear it. After getting done with this book, it seems that suspense will now have a space in my heart (especially if it's a book written by a female author). I like her books. They're easy to read and good for beginners. It has a woman touch and I prefer that over too boring and serious approach.

Book Cover

It consists of 318 pages yet the last 75 pages are the real page turners. It took me a lot of days to finish the first 2/3 of it. Those parts were mostly introductions and didn't hook me. The last 1/3 is the best part and where the real action starts.

Bench Magic Brown Powder Review (in Natural)

Bench Magic Powder

Loose powder is a quick remedy for oiliness. It's not very awkward to use in a typical environment unlike pressed powder that can get uncomfortable to use  every hour when you know you are surrounded with people who doesn't bother to pamper their face. There's no enough break to retouch in work and we cannot avoid what other people thinks when we openly use make up (especially with guys). They will think it's too trying hard and very unnatural.

Controlling oiliness is more effective if given an internal approach. I have tried taking some tablets that regulated the oiliness in my face. When it comes to cosmetics, I gave up. They're mostly false claims though I am curious with high end products which I can't afford.

Belo Intensive Whitening Bar Review (Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid)

Belo Kojic Soap

The term “intensive” made me wary and kept me from buying the product. However, I'm glad to try a free sample of this (yet still costs me shipping fee) to challenge my impression.

This intensive whitening bar can be used for the face and body yet I used this in my body only. The skin in my face is already thinner for me to abuse it more. When a product is multipurpose such as this, I expect it to only work best in one area. My face is already exposed in whitening products than the rest of my body parts, so why would I still use a heavy duty whitening soap for that?

I still need whitening products for my arms though. Even if there's an umbrella, I still end up with dark and uneven skin tone.
