Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion | Great for Moms too!

6 Jun

I want to teach my daughter how to take care of her body as early as now. She already knows that after bath, we apply products like nappy cream, powder, baby lotion, baby oil and insect repellent.

Among the baby products she has been using, I love products from Human Nature and Cetaphil the most. I use Cetaphil Cleanser when she takes a bath and follow-up with Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. These two products I share with her since we both have sensitive skin that reacts to almost all products!

The Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion keeps my baby’s skin hydrated, soft, supple and irresistible to touch! It disappears into your skin as you lather it on, which means it absorbs quickly. It leaves skin moisturized for the rest of the day (12 hours or more). Great for the hands, too! No sticky feel and no greassy feel!

Product Empties: MAY 2013

30 May

This is my first “product empties” post ever…because I hardly ever finish a product. I don’t get to empty them because, well, I like to keep them when they are 1/4 empty. I hardly ever throw products [even though they are expired!] because no matter how silly it may seem or how crazy I am, I’d like to keep them.

There’s going to be only one photo for this, though.

1.   Clindamycin Phosphate S.O.S.(Save Our Skin)

I am already using my third bottle as of the moment. For almost 100php, this product works! I don’t have any blackheads around my nose anymore and it prevents big breakouts. For a detailed review, check here. 

2. Human Nature Strengthening Shampoo

I used this months ago but just emptied it recently. It is an all-natural shampoo without SLS.  This does not lather like other shampoos but it cleans just the same. I also loved the fresh aloe vera scent it leaves my hair. Most of the time, it makes my hair look damp straight and at times it makes my hair stiff and dry. That is why I use it only twice a week and on days when my hair feels like it is so much chemically-laden.

3. Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator

I did not really finish this up. I dropped it — accidentally. I was in shock when it happened because it was still almost new. The tub is still filled. It works well in preventing oiliness and smoothing out the face. Instead of crying over spilled milk, I moved on already and started again using the new Oil Eliminator HD from Krave.

4. J&J Milk Lotion

This product is actually used up by my little girl. I included it here because I undeniably share this with her. She loves applying lotion on her skin and on my skin as well!

5. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

I swear by this product and have used this ever since my little girl was an infant. I have two of this [one at my parent’s house, one at home]. The one we have at home is the empty one. I also have a little bottle of this in her baby bag. It is gentle, dermatologist tested, and may be used even without water. I also get to borrow this when we are out and I wanted to wash my face. What’s great is that you only have to use a little amount and a 250ml can last you a year or two.

DIY: How to Make Cream Blush

7 Feb

    Here I am with another DIY 🙂

    Cream blushes stay longer than a powder blush. Unfortunately, I don’t have any cream blushes right now  so I just made one myself.
    Please check this out if you want to know how.
    STEPS:
    1. Prepare the things you will need:
    • empty container
    • any moisturizer
    • pigments (different shades of blushes or eyeshadow, highllighter, bronaer)
    • toothpick (for mixing and scooping)
    • tissue (for cleaning/wiping mess)
    • makeup setting spray
    used Human Nature blush case

    blushes (from Human Nature, Avon, Krave) highlighter (from Avon), bronzer (fromnElianto)

    2. In an empty container, use a toothpick to scrape and scoop your chosen pigments. I chose Human Nature Blush in Petal Bloom, Elianto Bronzer, Krave Blush Krush in Pink Muffin. You can use any kind of powder blush (loose or pressed, mineral or not). You can use multiple colors so you can mix them and get a new blush
