Moringa O2 Toner | The MultiVitamin Toner

16 Apr Moringa O2 toner

I can’t remember the number of purchases I’ve made in Sample Room, but around December last year, I got this one together with the Moringa Therapy Oil.

It has the same bottle as that of the Gluta-C toner, except that this one has a green cap and the other has orange. The scent is very refreshing, like green tea, which is the signature scent of the Moringa O2 line. For only ₱89, you get 100ml of product. It lasts for a month or two, depending on your usage.

Unboxing April 2014 BDJ Box | Exclusive Pixy (Truly Asian Beauty) Box

15 Apr April 2014 Pixy BDJ Box

I attended a Baccalaureate mass last Saturday and commuting home left me lightheaded. It somehow disappeared when I saw this in our living room, waiting for me. Actually I got 2 packages yesterday – one from Sample Room and one from BDJ Box.

I lifted the April BDJ Box and became giddy when it felt heavy again! YAY! Became excited when I saw an Exclusive BDJ Box from a new makeup brand in the Philippines, PIXY. No doubt BDJ Box is the first to let us Bellas try the said brand. This new brand is an Indonesian cosmetics line which is formulated using Japanese technology and ingredients. Truly made for Asian skin, agree?

Moving Out and Moving On

10 Apr

Leaving the house I lived in for 13 years was such a heartbreak for me. We moved there April 1, 2001 – I was still a freshman in high school. Though it tugs my heart to leave such a place, I have nothing else to do. We were just renting the apartment and the owner of that place was selling the whole lot (and quite probably going to build a townhouse) so all us tenants were forced to vacate the area.

For the past 4 months, every night I had became sleepless. Waves of worries washed me… Where will we move? Is the place we’re going to move in as safe, accessible and within budget? Can I still have the life I used to have in the new place we’re moving? What will happen to me, to our family? Glad I have my hubby to talk to and somehow he keeps everything pacified. We are exact opposites, really. Being the worrier that I am, stressing over every detail, hubby on the other hand is the laid back, what-will-happen-will-happen kind of person. He just tells me to continue doing what I do best – and that is to pray. It helped that I am part of CFC and LECCOM which somehow helped me in prayer.

For days, I asked every one in my contacts and those who live nearby if they know any house we can inquire. We walked around our area, searched for available houses, and BAM! A block away (exactly three houses) from my parents’ house was for lease. I prayed that God let us move in that place if that new house is really meant for us. Yes, there were troubles but nothing hubby and I can’t surpass.

We moved in to our new place last March 30, 2014 (Sunday). Hubby and I gave our house a soft blessing wherein I used Holy Water, a drop of oil of Miraculous Infant Jesus de Providencia. We prayed over our house to be a safe home filled with happiness, love and good memories.

Only yesterday we had our house blessed by Fr. Chito Bartolo, OFM Capuchin. He is the parish priest of National Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes (NSOLL). He was very accomodating and witty!

Bittersweet and all, this new chapter in my life is definitely a milestone for our family. This gave me the realization that even if life is filled with changes and situations that will keep us moving forward, there is only one thing that will remain constantGod’s love for us. With God’s love always present with us, we just need to keep living a life filled with goodness and love.

 

Unboxing March 2014 BDJ Box | Exclusive BENEFIT Cosmetics Box

9 Mar March 2014 BDJ Box (Exclusive BENEFIT Cosmetics Box)

I got giddy when BDJ Box uploaded a teaser photo of what will be inside the March 2014 Box. I was guessing one includes Porefessional PRO Balm…and it did!

For the first time, BDJ Box was able to release an EXCLUSIVE BENEFIT BDJ Box!

March 2014 BDJ Box (Exclusive BENEFIT Cosmetics Box)

I was happy to receive the box personally but I got a wee bit disappointed when I got hold of it. It did not seem heavy compared to the previous boxes they released. When I opened the box I felt happy to see samples of Benefit’s famous products. I looked for one full-sized product but there was none.  This box was just like the August 2013 BDJ Box where the  exclusive Shiseido box contained only sample sizes of products.

Nevertheless, it is still BENEFIT and we get to try and own their products for only ₱580.

Here are the products inside:

1 Porefessional PRO Balm

2 Stay Don’t Stray

3 Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow

4 Stay Flawless

Ellana Lip and Cheek Gel in Ruby | Are you Red-y?!

8 Mar Ellana Lip and Cheek Gel in Ruby

Ellana Cosmetics is another brand which is proudly Pinoy made. It recently made a comeback, which caters improved and new products. I haven’t tried any of them yet until BDJ Box included one of its bestsellers in the January-February BDJ Box.

The shade I got was Ruby and from the bottle, it looks bloody red with blue undertone. I love the functionality of the packaging. It is a pump plastic bottle which can withstand falls. The pump, on the other hand, has no cover but it locks as you twist it – making it very travel friendly! The drawing / label design looks very sophisticated and feminine!

AVON Anew 360 White CC Cream SPF 30 PA+++ 15-in-1 | BDJ Box 7-day Challenge

25 Feb AVON Anew 360 White CC Cream SPF 30 PA+++ 15-in-1

Avon Philippines just joined the CC Cream bandwagon as they released their latest product – AVON Anew 360 White CC Cream SPF 30 PA+++ 15-in-1. That’s quite a mouthful isn’t it? The bottomline is that this is more of a skincare product than a makeup. More on the moisturizer side but with high SPF content.
