Everyday Sunblock

P1080005

So, it’s true. As another year adds to that age, one becomes more conscious with her skin and what she puts on it. I don’t know when I started to look at my skin at a different light, no pun intended, but I do know that there is no better time to start taking care of […]

Shine-free Morena

P1060779

Shine. It’s one of the most unwanted occurrences that we don’t want to happen on our faces as Morenas. We want the glow, not the shine. There’s a thin line between those two but, let’s admit it, we usually cross the line towards being shiny. Fine, not usually. Almost always. I’m sure that you’ve tried […]

All is fair in love and war, an old adage sings. Taking calculated risks, hoping for a more controlled outcome, or Murphy’s Law in effect, regardless, things happen — good or bad. Playing the blame game is a waste of time; swimming against the tide may prove futile. In most instances, it’s best to expect […]

Plate’s been full since beginning of last week and there are still a few more important errands to run for the next couple of weeks. It’s funny how these things seemingly conspire to happen all at the same time, sometimes. Leaving you no spare time and quite exhausted on some days. So, before the backlog […]

Do you know how to care for dry chapped lips?

A few weeks prior my trip, I’ve been complaining about dry chapped lips. I noticed that mine has been unusually dry and seriously chapped esp the top lip. I blame the poor intake of a proper amount of liquid, e.g. water, and mostly the weather. What perplexes me is the notion that it’s normally cold […]

Neutrogena’s solution to our blackhead problem?

Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub - Skincare | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub and Cooling Toner Truth be told, I approach skincare products with a little skepticism since there hasn’t been any science that can fully rectify or reverse seemingly unpleasant effects of nature or what imbalance we’d notice or go through. However, I do hope on the bit that it […]

What’s your Skincare Regimen?

Dry skin. Blemishes. Age spots. Wrinkles. Growing old. Stuff that nibbles at the edge of my consciousness. Is it vanity? Perhaps. “It’s something that I can’t stop,” I uttered with a sigh. Wheels of time will continue turning and it truly is something that’s not within my power to control. Yea, I will age, shrivel […]

Hello, Hydration: How I Got Over Mr. Sun

Paranaque City-20120427-00798

[Post by Eena Acuña] Its almost 37 degrees out and I can already feel my heat rashes frowning. “Too much sun is not fun”, I can imagine them call out. Belonging to probably 10% of the population that gets heat rash has been a living nightmare. With soccer practice, beach trips, and random daytime getaways, […]

When I wrote about the skincare regimen I’m currently on early this year, I mentioned having chosen to go for OLAY Total Effects. With only my experience with their Regenerist line to back up this choice, I’m satisfied enough to say now that this skincare line has proven itself to me. PLUS it doesn’t hurt […]

I have a weakness for bath products. Yes, I’m strangely drawn to bar soaps (mostly organic ones) and the rest of the bath and body products. Most of my friends and family are familiar with this sort of gifts esp during Christmas time. And for the past few years, I’ve preferred gifting products from the […]
