Human Nature 100% Natural Body Butter Cream in Berry Bliss | Oh so Yummy for my Body!

31 Jul

It has been raining most days this July and I find myself grabbing this every night. What makes me want to use it is its very thick and creamy consistency. I think that my skin feels dehydrated whenever its cold and to keep it from feeling that way, I have to use something thicker than what I usually apply.

Here comes another product from a company I truly love — Human Nature!

Human Nature 100% Natural Body Butter Cream

Product Description

Have you always stayed away from butter and cream because they’re so sinful? Indulge in rich, buttery cream without the guilt. Made with a fusion of nature’s best, ultra-succulent and potent ingredients, our antioxidant packed, deeply moisturizing Body Butter Cream will transform your thirsty, dry skin into velvety soft, supple skin. And because our Natural Care Labs made sure it’s 100% Natural with 0% calories, luxurious indulgence can now be guilt-free.

Did you know:

Most if not all available body butters and creams in the market right now use synthetic feel modifiers.

Feel modifiers is a term used for petroleum by-product ingredients usually ending in “-one” likesilicone and dimethicone. These sit in a layer on top of your skin keeping the moisture in but at the same time, clogging your pores and trapping in sebum, dirt, and bacteria. It’s like applying a layer of plastic wrap all over your body, suffocating it, and not allowing your skin to breathe. What’s even more disturbing is that according to, there is insufficient toxicity data to know if dimethicone and silicone are safe for use in personal care products. So why use them at all?

Our Body Butter Cream contains none of these modifiers. Instead, we use premium all-natural plant oils to give your skin the deep moisturization it needs.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake | As Sweet as its Name

29 Jul

Revlon Colorburst lip butters have been in the market for more than a year.  I have tried swatching them when we are out and I would love to own one but I really can’t seem to have the strength to buy one for myself. I think it is a bit expensive since it is more like a tinted lip balm which is very much widely available in different brands with a very high price of 525php for only 2.5g of product.

Thankfully, this was included in the massive July BDJ Box and I finally have one for myself!

100th Post: How Motherhood Changed Me + Giveaway Winner

26 Jul

Little did I know what would await me as a mother that moment my little girl was conceived. I just knew one thing and that is trust — Trust in the Lord that I could do it because He entrusted this privilege and honor to bear the child.

Fast forward to February 2011, we were blessed with a healthy baby girl. And once this little stranger came into our lives, I knew that my life would never be the same — ever. I have never felt a love so strong and so complex at the same time. The more I get to be with her, the more I love her. Yes I am her mother and I ought to teach her and guide her, but actually, it is the other way around. I learn from her, and continuously learning with her. Motherhood improved me holistically. I became stronger — physically, emotionally, spiritually. I learned to be better for myself and for my family. The role of motherhood forced me into being a jill-of-all-trades, a woman who does so many yet summing up to one — a nurturer who fulfills my family’s needs.

Maybelline Clearsmooth All-in-One Shine Free Cake Powder | Pretty Powerful Compact

14 Jul

This came in the May BDJ Box and I was very happy that I got the perfect match for my skin tone. The Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-One Foundation has been in the market for a year already. I actually have the refill even before I got the travel sized one. I think the case is very cute with its pastel pink packaging and the label in front.

Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-OneThe refill, which is only 2×2 inches in size, retails for only 149php and I chose it over the 249php palm-sized compact with a mirror and a sponge case. The SA told me that there had been complaints about the powder being easily “broken” if it is in the palm sized compact so it’s better to purchase the refill. Unfortunately, even the powder inside the refill broke — the middle part fell as if it’s only filled with air. But before that happened, I brought it with me everywhere I went. Now I just bring with me the one I got from BDJ Box.

Céleteque Dermoscience Brightening Multi-benefit BB Cream | BB Cream with Benefits

11 Jul

I’ve seen this before in watsons and I swatched it. I didn’t get it then because it has a pink undertone. I have a yellow to neutral undertone so I thought it wouldn’t suit me well. Thankfully, I saw this in Sampleroom and got myself a sample.

Complete Information on the box

It has this plastic squeeze type tube that has a very small hole which dispenses enough product. It also locks it in place so no product will be wasted and spilled.

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Ultra-Hydrating Cleansing Oil| Double Up as a Moisturizer

4 Jul

The first makeup remover I’ve had is the one from Human Nature, the Human Nature Sunflower Cleansing Oil. So as not to put this to waste, I alternately use them both.

I am kind of putting my loyalty now to makeup removers which are in an oil form. I think they just melt the makeup away and keep skin moisturized.

CÉLETEQUE DermoScience™ Advanced Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Ultra-Hydrating Cleansing Oil

I actually had this in my February BDJ Box, the Shiseido Special Box. I know it has been with me for quite a bit and I haven’t written a review about it yet — until now.

CÉLETEQUE DermoScience™ Advanced Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Ultra-Hydrating Cleansing Oil


I like the simplicity of the packaging. The bottle is a little hard to use since the oil gets stuck up and does not come out quickly. I like the cap because it prevents mess.

As directed, soak a cotton ball with this and apply directly to face and neck. I tried applying the cleansing oil on my face directly and wipe it with a cotton ball. Same results in dissolving and removing makeup but I think the latter is better since I tend to save more of the product.

Since it is oil based, it did well in removing makeup and dirt and doubles up as a moisturizer too. It also easily removes the stubborn waterproof mascaras and eyeliners and I don’t have to tug the delicate skin around the eyes. And when all the makeup, dirt and grime was wiped away, it doesn’t feel like my face has been stripped of its natural moisture. Thumbs up to that! I’ve tried using the product as a leave on moisturizer a couple of times in the evening  too and I love how my skin felt the day after.

With just one use of an almost soaked cotton pad, all the makeup and dirt are cleansed away!

CÉLETEQUE DermoScience™ Advanced Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Ultra-Hydrating Cleansing Oil

Regarding the price, I think it is a bit pricey than most cleansing oils in the market. But with the anti-aging benefits this product claims, I think it will suffice.

Movie Review: Monsters University

2 Jul

We recently watched “Monsters University” (courtesy of AXA Life Philippines) and we had a blast watching it! Even my little girl was laughing while she was watching it.

Monsters University

I loved “Monsters Inc” especially Boo! I never thought that this prequel will be so much better than the first. The graphics used is amazing and it almost looked “real”. Colors filled the screen so the audience is visually and audibly entertained.
