Combat Skin Aging Round the Clock with Kojie.san’s Dreamwhite Line

What if I tell you that there’s a way to combat skin aging more effectively without requiring you to work harder?

The secret lies in boosting our skin’s regenerative process while you sleep. Our bodies need sleep in order to regenerate. Hence, sleep-deprived women who tend to work hard, party hard, and sleep less show early signs of skin aging. These include the skin looking sallow, and the appearance of undereye puffiness and dark circles...

REVIEW: False Eyeliner??? Eyeliner Sticker Tapes are here!

The truth is, not everyone is gifted with a steady hand required to apply that perfectly winged liner. As for myself, I wish I could apply eyeliner every day, but it’s too time-consuming, which is why I choose to forego the eyeliner when I do my makeup. There has been more than one occasion when I wished for a faster way to line my eyes...

REVIEW: L’Oreal Color Riche Gold Obsession Collection

When metallic lipsticks came into the scene again last year, I wasn’t sold. And even when Colourpop and Colourette were really making it easy to own a metallic lippie by dropping their prices really low for these, I still couldn’t bring myself to find it appealing. It was just too loud and shiny, and a bit tacky for my taste. I didn’t want to walk around looking like I ate lechon and had greasy lips left to tell the truth.

So when I received this in my mail, I was kind of skeptical at first...

5 Things You Need to Know Before Getting Gel Nail Polish

I was clueless about the miracle that was Gel nail polish until about two months ago, when I started planning for our annual company Christmas party. It was also very fortunate for me to find that a local salon near my place offers a promo for an ORLY Gel Mani-Pedi for only Php 600. Normally, other salons offer it at Php 600 for a gel mani, or a gel pedi, but never both. I couldn’t pass up on the chance to finally try it out, and so I did!

REVIEW: Mauve Hair by Azta Urban Salon

Last December 27, just a day after the long Christmas break started, I visited Azta for another hair coloring session. It’s always fun to have my hair colored at Azta. I had pink hair then, and the roots were already getting too long for comfort. For that particular hair coloring session, we chose to go with the Mauve hair color, a newly introduced color in their Funky Shades line.

To be honest, I was really scared to try it out. I loved my pink hair...
