Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion 7-day challenge

I am a bit curios with my BDJ coupon from Jergens it says they give a free gift pack when you take the Jergens 7-day challenge. So I one time I’m in the supermarket I went to get one, honestly just so I can do the challenge and get my free gift pack. Well I’m glad I did because now I am also a believer with this lotion.

To tell you honestly I am not a fan of lotions. I am so lazy to slather thick smooth liquid all over my body hence I having dry skin. More likely I hate the sticky feeling after putting it.

Then comes Jergens. I never thought that Jergens has improved so much. It has lots off variants already which tackles different kinds of skin problems. My titas and titos abroad would always gave us Jergens lotion as pasalubong.

Since I am suffering with dry hands now from the super cold airconditioning of our office I tried this super handy pocket size variant of Jergens in Ultra healing and I am so hooked.

It just not give me smooth and moisturized hands its also smells so good but not too overpowering. It immediately made my dry hands super soft. I love that its not sticky even if I get out of the office for client visits. Other brands tend to be feel sticky at the end of the day. I am trying it now on my dry callused feet and its giving me the best results its making it super soft.

Definitely a staple now in my dresser and one of my favorites again.

After posting this review in Jergens facebook page. I get a message from them to get my shipping details and after 1 day I got my free gift set. But now more than the gift set I am so glad I found Jergens again.

My Tress Hero – Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner

I have a love hate relationship with my hair. I mostly pull it up in a bun when we have a lover’s quarrel which is most of the time. It becomes more often now after the pregnancy hair which is super full and lustrous but after the baby come out and started toggling my hair becomes a nightmare. Finally something came to my rescue. Thanks to BDJ and Sample Room I got to meet this wonderful new product that everyone is raving about. It is voted  Beauty Crush of Cosmopolitan and now it is here.

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner

My New Tress Hero! Thanks BDJ and Sampleroom

Here is the product description:

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner (Total Damage Care)

Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Conditioner (Total Damage Care)

With up to 80% more key conditioning ingredient vs. Pantene’s regular conditioner, Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner contains the highest ever level of advanced Terminal Amino-Silicones (TAS), which flatten and smoothen the outer layer or the cuticle cells on the hair surface. This helps protect the hair’s inner structure or cortex, preventing future damage and moisture loss from styling. By protecting the moisture balance of hair, Pantene 3 Minute Miracle transforms brittle, rigid and damaged hair to touchable, soft and beautiful hair.

See the improvement from the first time you try it: Stronger, shinier hair inside out in just 3 minutes.

Damaged hair tips, like split ends, lose more protein than the roots. This protein loss leads to a cycle of damage as it hollows the hair.

Pantene Pro-V formula

• Helps repair and seal every strand of hair – reduce protein loss to stop the damage progression

• Helps prevent future split ends even in 3 months with regular use

• Specially designed for daily use

Full Size: 70ml / 180ml / 340ml

Price: PHP 59 / PHP 159 / PHP 259

It has a fancy gold packaging, it looks very special specially with the pouch that comes with it.

The product well its not too runny that it runs to your hand when you squeeze it out of the tube nor its not too creamy that it will way your hair down. It has just the right texture and it doesn’t leave any stick feeling on my hair.

The consistency

The smell is so wonderful with fruity floral note and last a long long time even until the next day. If not for the smoke and dirt when I travel (all commuters problem) it could have lasted longer on me, but it does if I’m just at home.

I just dyed my hair last month and the damaged it cost was so obvious my hair becomes brittle and unruly and the frizz was so frustrating.

In just 4 easy steps and in just 3 minutes it gave me that smooth soft touchable hair that I always dream of.

Just squeeze, massage, leave and rinse.

Sadly it is not yet available in our near by supermarket but it will be soon and when it does it will be a main stay in my grocery list.

BDJ Special Edition Pixy Box

Hi beauties! This will be my first time to write  a review about makeups.  I’m not an authority for rating such kind since I still consider myself as noob with using makeup but I’m going to try my best in giving an honest impression with this product. I’m going to talk about lipsticks from a new product line here in the Philippines, Pixy brought to us by Mandom Philippines. Made with Japanese quality standards and is tailored for Asian skin. I got this product from April subscription of BDJ box. They have included 9 products all from  Pixy.  I will review first 3 of these products which are all lipsticks from Silky Fit Collection. In their site they have 7 kinds of lipsticks with different finish.

The Cream Factory Scrub-in-a-Tub

Being a mom is one of the most tough job in the world.  Countless of sleepless nights, tiring daily chores and loving your kids and partner 24/7 nonstop are some of the many things a mom has to do. That’s why a few minutes of quiet, blissful and peaceful me time is very special for a mom like me.  A well deserve me time must be well spent. My me time is mostly spent in the shower. Since I’m working from Monday till Saturday and am a full time mom on Sundays taking care of two kids, my few minutes in the shower is the most of the time I can spend for myself. I recently enjoyed my time off because of my new partner in the shower The Cream Factory SCRUB-in-a-TUB Yummy.

The Cream Factory SCRUB-in-a-TUB

I got this beauty from the dear people of Because Inc. distributor of The Cream Factory and Saforelle. They let me try this new baby of their product line before it was out in the market (Sorry guys for the late review. >_<).  The variant I picked is Yummy in Goats milk and almonds. It is said to be made with real goat’s milk, cocoa bean bits and almond oil that strips the dirt away and nourish the skin to a silky smooth . It instantly became my favorite scrub. It was love-at-first-scrub.

A little introduction

A little introduction

It’s creamy and rich which at first looks like chocolate spread. It smells really good and sweet,  a bit strong when sniffed right from the tub but onced applied and massaged on skin it only leaves just a hint of the scent.

See the cocoa bean bits its size is advisably for scrubbing the body but may be too harsh for the face. See the pictures below for my first scrubbing impression:

Sampling the Scrub

I love this scrub for its able to remove grim, dirt and all from my skin and leaves me refreshed and smells good. It has the same benefit for Goat’s milk and the cocoa bits scrubs the impurities away.  Cocoa also has the property to energies our skin and the almond oil moisturizes.

Direction and Ingredients

The Scrub-in-a-Tub is a bit pricey but I tell you it is so worth the price with all its benefit plus it beats the quality of the scrubs use in famous spas.  For Php799.00 you can have your own spa session at home for as many times as you want. Heck you can even share it with someone special.  Now that gives me an idea (R-18 thoughts LOL!). You may grab your own tub at Trinoma, Robinsons mall, Wellworth, BDJ.com and Glamourbox.ph.

Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner

Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner

Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner

Here’s another product review for skincare, my second ever review post here in my blog. I know I know I’m not an authority in reviewing products just want to share my opinions on things that we can buy in the market that we might have neglected because we usually go to well known product names when buying stuffs at the groceries or mall. I was once like that but after I become a mom and a home-maker I valued every peso I spent so I try to find alternatives that works without costing me too much.

Moringga O2 Toner From Sampleroom

Moringga O2 Toner From Sampleroom

I have blogged before about a site that gave free samples which is the Sample Room and now I’ll be writing my review about one of the products that I got from them. I had also written a review on their site to earns points which I can use again to avail other samples. I’m going to talk about Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner. This toner claims to be a herbal toner because it’s made of Moringa (malunggay) extract, Olive oil and Omega (sunflower oil). This toner claims to have anti-aging and anti-oxidant properties. It is a gentle  toner that rejuvenates, nourishes and protects the skin. It has several key benefits including:

  • Gently cleanses residual dirt without drying
  • May help reduce pimples
  • Stimulates cell regeneration and skin renewal
  • Deeply nourishes, moisturizes and smoothens dry skin
  • Minimizes pores
  • Improves skin elasticity and suppleness
  • Skin lightening

Moringa-O2 is best recommended for dry and sensitive skin, itchy skin, aging skin and skin conditions like skin asthma and Keratosis Pilaris.

I know I have combination to oily skin but I still want to try a herbal toner so I availed this product in Sample Room. I followed the instruction on the back of the bottle. So after I wash my face with my favorite facial wash now Garnier’s brightening oil control scrub. I soak a cotton ball with Moringa-O2 toner and gently apply  it on my face and neck in circular motion.

So after the application my face feels clean and not dry at all it has this refreshing feeling. The smell is not that strong and doesn’t sting due to being alcohol-free  and it’s able to pick up dirt that is left after washing. As you can see with the last picture my face looks like it’s moisturized already. I didn’t put any moisturizer after so I know what will happen to my face after a few hours. As expected my face starts to oil up after 2 hours and I guess the toner really is for dry skin because I got oilier than usual. The next day after I wake up I get a small zit on my forehead. So I gave my toner to my sister which complains of having a dry skin. She didn’t breakout from it and it improves her dry skin. She use it regularly now. After a month I try to use it again now because the cold air makes my skin dry and after using it makes my skin moisturized and didn’t turn out to be to oily now.

I wouldn’t personally use it as my daily toner for sure but I would recommend it to those people with dry and sensitive skin. Being a herbal product I can trust this to be very gentle and wouldn’t harm the skin. Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner comes in 100 ml bottle and cost Php 89.75 at leading drugstores and groceries. A very cheap unique local product.

There you go another review is done. See you again guys.

The Cream Factory Bath Cream

The Cream Factory Bath Cream

The Cream Factory Bath Cream

Oh my gosh I know I promised to post more often after the holidays but because of some false labor alerts and much needed bed rest it took me a while before I made this review post. So for my first product review, I’m going to rave about The Cream Factory Bath Cream I got from my Secret Santa Glamourbox last December.

A little description

A little description

This product is totally new for me since I’ve been a long time user of different hard soaps. I love sweet smelling stuffs so its love at first smell when I had my hands on it. Cream Factory works as a liquid soap but it’s much creamier than any other liquid soap. It is said that it’s made of Goat milk so I presume it has nourishing and moisturizing properties. Cream Factory list up all the good stuffs that the cream is made off and also they list all the bad stuffs that they leave, so we know what goes on to our skin.

The Cream Factory Bath Cream Milk and Acai Berry

The Cream Factory Bath Cream Milk and Acai Berry

There are different variants to choose from that targets different skin needs. I got the Milk and Acai berry variant. Acai berries are known as one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world and is mainly located at the Amazon rainforest. This dark-purple berries have lots of anti-oxidants and age-defying properties.

Though I’m still young to use anti-aging products it’s never too early to use products that can prevent wrinkles specially I have a very stressful work as a programmer. I’m lucky to try this variant because it smells like my favorite dessert froyo with berries.

I like the thick and rich consistency of the product, a small amount on a loofah or sponge goes a long way. It create lots suds and smells so sweet. I use the product first with a loofah all over my body then I rinse it and I use it again on my pulse points (i.e. inner arm, back of knees, back of ears) like applying perfume, just rubbing the product without the loofah to make the scent last longer.

Here are the pics of how I use the product with and without loofah:

After the application my skin feels soft and supple. I tried the scratch test and there are no white marks on my skin so I know its moisturized. It smells so good and sweet like I’m wearing perfume.

The Cream Factory comes in 768 ml which cost Php 699.00 and Bundled pack (3 bottles of 221 ml) which cost Php 799. Different Variants are:

  • Goat’s Milk & Almond: The Detoxifying Soap
  • Goat’s Milk & Jojoba: The Clarifying Soap
  • Goat’s Milk & Yogurt: The Soothing Soap
  • Goat’s Milk & Seaweed: The Revitalizing Soap
  • Goat’s Milk & Cinnamon: The Purifying Soap
  • Goat’s Milk & Avocado: The Radiating Soap
  • Goat’s Milk & Acai Berry: The Age-Defying Soap
  • Goat’s Milk & Witch Hazel: The Rejuvenating Soap
  • Goat’s Milk & Honey: The Germ Killing Soap

So I hope I gave justice with my review with this product. I love it so much after I finish the sample I’ll surely get the bigger bottle or the bundle pack so I could try also their other variants. By the way The Cream Factory also launch a new product line the SCRUB-in-TUB that is also so good it looks and smells dessert. I would love to try those also.  So there you go, that’s for my first review. Hope you enjoy and ’till next time.

XOXO,
