Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair

 

image

 

I have been a long time Vaseline lotion user and taking care of my skin is always a must. I can say that I have used several Vaseline lotions (yes, I tried them all) and I was so happy when I was chosen by Vaseline and Influenster to test the new Vaseline product. I received a bottle of the new Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair. It is ideal for those with dry, scaly skin which most so us experience during winter!

The new Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair is fragrance-free which is good because it won’t clash with any cologne or perfume you may be using afterwards. It has micro-droplets of Vaseline jelly and it is clinically proven to heal very dry skin in 5 days. I do have combination skin so I tried it first on my elbow and the effect is instant. It leaves the skin really smooth and it dries very quickly too. There’s no greasy or sticky after-feel. Unlike other lotions, you do not have to wait for your skin to dry up before you can put your clothes on. I have tried it on a daily basis and I can say that in this very cold weather, my skin (especially my hands and feet) are always smooth. It keeps my skin smooth and there was even one time when I was such in a hurry that I got no time to put lotion on but my skin was still smooth the entire day!

I have received his bottle for free and I will definitely purchase this product when this one runs out!

“I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.”

Happy birthday, Trees!

My colleague once said that women can leave three lasting legacies: write a book, give birth, and plant a tree.

Today, the trees I planted turned 6 years old. 🙂

Yes, I brought Doraemon with me 🙂 *Some of the photos were taken by buhaykalsada.multiply.com (website no longer active)

When I was still working for IBM in 2008, I joined a company-wide tree planting activity.  We all hiked to Ipo Dam in Norzagaray, Bulacan, Philippines. It took us hours to get to the tree planting site and it just felt great to give back to Mother Nature. At the time, there is an alarming rate of deforestation in the area and several mountaineers also did their part in planting trees.

It is one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. The trees are now 6 years old and I couldn’t imagine how tall they are. Anytime is the best time to plant a tree. In this ever-changing world, where only a small portion of the world are caring about trees, it doesn’t hurt to take the initiative to plant even just one tree. You can start leaving a legacy and making your mark in saving the Earth.

When will you start? 🙂

Instanatural Vitamin C Facial Toner

I don’t normally put too much stuff on my face. I’m a water-facial wash-moisturizer type of girl and sticking to the essentials is what I am used to. When I shop, I get overwhelmed with so many facial products that I really can’t figure out which ones are better than the rest. I know this is a problem for a lot of girls. The golden rule is: Always stick to natural ingredients and carefully choose the products that is best for your skin type.

I have combination skin and I consider myself quite lucky to have healthy facial skin. Never had acne but I usually get one big flashy pimple (gross I know) during my periods and even if it breaks, it doesn’t scar at all. That is one of the reasons why I don’t put too much stuff on my face for fear that it might trigger something really bad. After researching, I found out that a facial toner is really good in order for our face to keep its PH balance before we put moisturizers etc. So when I was given InstaNatural Vitamin C Facial Toner for testing, I gave it a go to see what it can do for my skin. This product is in a spray bottle so you can just spray it on after you clean your face. I tried to spray it first at the back of my wrist to test if I’m allergic to it and good thing, my skin had no reactions to it. I sprayed it on my face and It dried very quickly. Then you can follow through with moisturizer or makeup.

The instant effect is refreshing. It also has a citrusy smell. I had been using the product for 7 days as I’m writing this and the effect on my skin is really good. It balances out my skin. My face is clearer and looks healthier. 🙂

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Read and Book a Flight

 

IMG_0887.JPG

This is me with my travel companion at Incheon International Airport 🙂

“I beg young people to travel. If you don’t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown, eat interesting food, dig some interesting people, have an adventure, be careful. Come back and you’re going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You’re going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It’s not what Tom Friedman writes about, I’m sorry. You’re going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking twelve miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can’t get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people — Americans and Europeans — come back and go, “Ohhhh.” And the lightbulb goes on.” – Henry Rollins

Okay.

So here I am lying in my bed and trying to sleep. Suddenly, the thought of blogging again crossed my mind. AGAIN. Yes. The problem with me is that I get so excited when I start a new blog but then that enthusiasm just kinda fades out until I just end up getting so lazy to just even login to my online journal/blog? In doing that, I have created more than ten blogs! I had accounts with Live Journal, Blogger, Multiply, Tumblr etc. I can say that I have reached that point where you can label me as a “trying hard” and I won’t even hate you for it. Well, truth be told, I wanted to have followers of course. Because if you have followers, it only means you’re posting something that is so interesting which makes you a likable person. I still can’t comprehend how famous bloggers are able to do that. I mean, come on, they can just talk about the dust falling from their ceiling and people will still follow them and like their post and share it.

Is it about grammar? I guess no. I’ve seen famous bloggers who are not-so-perfect with their grammar and yet they have a million followers. Whhyyyy…. Is it about layout? No. I’ve seen a blogger whose page looks like a standard legal sized white paper and still had 700k followers. So what is it then?

I have tried it all… music blog, photo blog, travel blog.. But I just end up getting tired of posting. Now, I am trying again. The only difference is now I’m not gonna try for the sake of trying. I guess it’s better when you can just be yourself when you blog and not to think of other bloggers. No pressure this time on followers too. I mean, I can blog all my life and talk to myself for all I care.

I kid you yes.
