Happy Skin’s Zit Zapper Cream | My answered prayer in a tube

31 Mar

Happy Skin has this instagram contest with hashtags #HappySkinHaul and #HappySkinGiveaway to which I was not able to join because I am on a makeup ban for three months. I was struggling to move my makeup ban to start for the month of April but then again, I assured myself that there will be more contests to join in next time. Actually, I am a feeling a little bitter about it.  I saw instagram photos of huge collections of Happy Skin products and I didn’t think I’ll get the chance even if I did a haul. So there, I just thought of posting a review on the first ever product I purchased from Happy Skin — The Zit Zapper Cream!

Unboxing the March 2015 BDJ Box | Pond’s Exclusive

17 Mar

I have gotten used to getting a monthly treat thanks to BDJ Box! They always come up with great mix of products to their every box — there are themed boxes (ie. Skin Savers) and exclusive boxes (ie. Benefit, Shiseido). For March 2015, they have an exclusive Pond’s box!

You might have seen this around in other bloggers by now. I got this a week ago but since we were busy with exams and checking, I only got the time to post this now.

Pond’s, of course, is not new to any of us. I have used the other ranges way back and my particular favorite is the Pond’s Detox White one (the yellow one). It works nicely and has a matte finish so I was loyal to it when I was in College.

So for this month, I was happy to be reunited again with Pond’s and their new products. YAY!

March 2015 BDJ Box

Here are the full sized products:

Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel

Pond’s Flawless White Ultra Luminous Serum

Pond’s Flawless White Dewy Rose Gel

Pond’s Flawless White BB+ Cream

Pond’s Flawless White Re-Brightening Night Cream

My Daughter’s Very First Haircut

5 Mar

One of the big changes that we were looking forward to the day my daughter turns 4 years old is her very first haircut!!! Take note, VERY. FIRST. Whew! (She did not get any trim, ever.)

Her hair is until her thighs already. (That long!) She even pretends to be Rapunzel in Tangled because of her long hair. The thing is, this long hair of her is what makes her stand out in a crowd. Wherever we went, people would always comment like, “Ang haba ng buhok ng bata. Ang ganda.” Yes even I envy her hair. It’s straight but with waves at the ends (her buhok sa tiyan, in Filipino terms!). It looks gorgeous when I take time to comb it through and style it. But her daily routine hinders us, she was always a sleepyhead and didn’t want to wake up. She wakes up, takes a bath and brush her teeth, dress up, and we’re out of the house in 10 minutes! You see, there is no combing in this routine. I comb her hair and fix it on the way to school.

As with everything else, I do conditioning. I talk to her months before the big day on our plans about her hair when she turns 4. I also brought her with me when I got a haircut so she would see that it’s just the hair that is being cut and I didn’t get hurt at all. Sometimes, kids associate certain words to an emotion, so I made sure that I used a more gentle, specific term for hair“cut”.

Weeks before, I was constantly having conversations with her on what she will expect, what will happen, the likes. I always assure her that her Papa and I are there for her.

A week before the haircut, we were making the most of her long hair. I styled her hair more often. I comb it through and through until she feels sleepy.
