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

25 Feb

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.

I got this particular one from the January-February BDJ Box. This was the first thing I noticed and loved among the rest of what’s inside the box. Anything with SPF tickles my fancy so I tried this at once… and I love it! Oh, if you want to subscribe for a BDJ Box, you can go to http://bdjbox.com/register.

The Cream Factory Bath Cream | Give in to Skindulgence

13 Feb

It seemed that the change of climate has affected our country and we experienced cool weather until early February. Now, we’re back to feeling a bit of summer.

Back to those days when cold weather was on, I like keeping my skin hydrated and moisturized by using The Cream Factory Bath Cream. The season was the perfect excuse to use warm water for bathing. Add in some creamy goodness of this and it feels like heaven after every shower.

The Cream Factory Bath Cream

Product Description:

THE CREAM FACTORY begins with goat’s milk which is packed with vitamins, minerals, and probiotics which moisturize, exfoliate, heal, and promote collagen growth. But THE CREAM FACTORY didn’t settle for just any goat’s milk – it uses real Netherlands goat’s milk which is known for its purity and quality.

But THE CREAM FACTORY didn’t stop there! It went around the world to find high quality active botanical extracts to add to the creamy goat’s milk. Imagine luxurious Spanish almond oil and exotic Brazilian acai berry. These make each concoction of THE CREAM FACTORY especially delicious.

Occupation: MOM 24/7

5 Feb

Looking at my planner, I find that there is no date that I have nothing to do. For each day of every week, there are chores and errands to do – cook, clean, wash, mend, the likes. When you become a mom, you surrender yourself to the fact that you work overtime without pay, everyday including holidays. You will be a mother, manager, nurse, teacher, chef, doctor, friend, playmate, planner, artist.

The tasks never seem to finish and somehow they keep piling up. For example, after homeschooling my daughter, I let her play so she can have a break. I was preparing dinner so I let her do her worksheets that I prepared, too. When everything is set for dinner, I find her surrounded with blocks, dolls, cooking sets and teacup sets. She did her worksheets quickly, but got bored so she played with her toys. Before we get to eat dinner, we tidy up the house a little. The little girl will excuse herself because she will read books or do her puzzles. Hubby and I will get to chitchat a little during dinner. By the time we’re done, the house is a mess again! I tidy up a little by picking the stuff and keeping them together, skipping the vacuum and broom, which will be added to tomorrow’s list of to-dos. I leave it that way so I can have at least 5 hours of sleep.

One day, I saw my little one putting on her bag after filling it with trinkets, carrying her laptop on her right hand and a foldable umbrella on her left, holding her toy cellphone and talking to someone.

I asked her, “What are you doing, sweetie?”

She answered giddily, “I have plenty of things to do. I am dressing up like you, Mom!”

I replied, “Do I dress up like that?”

She told me, “No… But you do everything for us. Thank you, Mom. Thank you for taking care of me and papa and the house.”

“You’re very much welcome, sweetheart.”

I hugged her tight, still unbelieving her thought that she appreciates what I’m doing for them.

No amount of salary can pay as high as my daughter’s love for my 24/7 job.

Unboxing the Special Edition SNOE Glamourbox

4 Feb

Glamourbox had tied up with SNOE Beauty, Inc. late last year and this partnership blossomed into something wonderful. They were able to come up with a Special Edition SNOE Glamourbox.

There were very limited boxes and I was not able to get one on the first batch. Luckily, they were able to open more slots and I made sure that I get to subscribe on the second batch.

It came around the third week of January and I was amazed to find that the box felt heavier than usual. Though somehow, I expected it to be one. Giddily, I opened the box immediately and this is what I found:
