The Naked Fusion’s Organic Soaps to Quench your Thirsty Skin

A lot of things can change in a woman’s body during pregnancy, and one of the most affected if I may say is the skin.

I have always taken pride on how my Mom took care my sister’s and I’s skin through the years, and that’s what I envision in doing to my son now that I am a mother.

That is why it is very timely that I got to know The Naked Fusion.

Ever since I got pregnant, I have been obsessed with organic and natural products. I wondered if I actually lived under a rock for so long for not opting to use vegan and cruelty-free products, but hey, it’s not too late, is it?

The Naked Fusion is an organic brand of beautifully handcrafted soaps that are beverage-inspired. They have a wide array of soaps for all skin types. They are 100% natural, made with certified organics, cruelty-free and vegan.

GLAMOR

Best for: Normal | Sensitive | Dry |Irritated Baby Skin (6 months above) | Children

Glamor is a mild blend of chamomile extract, lavender, and goat’s milk that are bound to keep your skin sophisticated like a glass of champagne. With continued use, it promises healing of irritated skin and other minor skin conditions. If you have extra sensitive skin, this is the perfect soap for you.

I also love how this soap can also be used for babies. I can’t wait to try this on Calum once he’s 6 months or older.

PLUSH

Best for: Normal | Oily | Acne-prone skin

Plush is a sweet concoction of sage flower, bearberry and licorice extract. It delicately prevents aging and skin pigmentations while ensuring skin remains supple, fair, and moisturized. The lavish feeling upon regular use will seep through like that of the red wine.

DANDY

Best for: Normal | Oily | Acne-prone skin

As soaring as a sip of vodka, Dandy brightens up the skin while keeping it soft and hydrated all throughout. Infused with lavender, peppermint, and rice milk, your skin will definitely thank you for a calming bliss together with your senses.

BUOYANT

Best for: Normal | Sensitive | All Skin Types

Taking inspiration from the youthful character of rum, Buoyant is here to help you achieve young-looking skin. Enriched with aloe vera leaf extract, sweet almond oil and oat, this beauty will leave your skin extra moisturized and hydrated with regular use.

LUCENT

Best for: Normal | Sensitive | Mature and Dry

Like the wild tequila, Lucent will leave no trace of dryness. Empowered with the healing extracts of shea butter, aloe vera gel, and Himalayan pink salt, Lucent is bound to help you purify your skin with much moisture, while inhibiting sagging.

SAVVY

Best for: Normal | Sensitive | Mature and Dry | With Skin Conditions

Just like the refined whiskey-like skin, Savvy is fuelled with Acapulco extract, cocoa butter, and sandalwood essential oils that are great ingredients in healing minor skin diseases, fade out dark marks, and improve the elasticity of the skin.

I think this will greatly help my belly skin in recovering post-pregnancy.

ENIGMA

Best for: Normal | Oily | Acne-prone skin

Just like the mysterious classic gimlet, Enigma is combined with the purifying benefits of activated charcoal, tea tree extract and aloe vera gel to help combat pimples, heal acne scars, and promote cell regeneration naturally.

FUSSY

Best for: Normal | Oily | Acne-prone skin

Carefully concocted as craft beer, Fussy prides itself with empowering ingredients such as goat’s milk, Himalayan pink salt, and bearberry extract that promise to lighten skin and improve its elasticity.

Just by writing I can already feel how thirsty my skin is. I cannot wait to use them and share with you the results. And did I mention that they all smell refreshing too?

Ha? 28 ka na? : Anti-aging with Novuskin Lift

When I was 21, I never wanted to age. How I wish I could stop time, and fulfill and be the first “Forever 21”!

Haha 🙂 That age has just so many possibilities going on with it. I was a fresh graduate. I just got my first job. Everything was just a first; I could hardly choose which one to begin!

19 years old

(Left – 20 years old    |   Right – 21 years old)

22 years old

24 years old

Fast forward to 7 years, I was able to climb up a career ladder, started a blog, became a brand ambassador of some brands, hosted my own talks, spoke to workshops and seminars, got featured in 2 TV shows, dyed my hair orange, got engaged, and getting married real soon!

OMG! Time sure flies so fast!

28 years old

As I look back, I know there were a lot of things I could have corrected, and wished I had done more than what I had, but then again what else can I do right?

All we need to do is to focus on the now, and what we can still control.

I am 28, and I think my efforts pay off whenever I get shocked reactions about my age. Golly, my fiancé even thought I was 18 when he first met me! I was 26 at the time.

But seriously, I think everyone feels the same way whenever other people think that they are younger than their original age.

There could be a lot of factors that can contribute to aging: diet, sleep patterns, exercise, stress, bodily responses and adaptation techniques to stimuli, environmental conditions, preferences, etc.

Recently, I took a chance and tried to use Novuskin Lift. It’s an anti-aging product that helps restore the skin’s natural elasticity through its scientific formulation that combines nature’s finest rejuvenating extracts with marine fish collagen, L-glutathione plus vitamins, and minerals.

For my one month’s use, I have seen how my hairfall significantly decreased. My skin feels smoother too, considering that I am not much of a lotion-user.

My sleep cycle improved too. Before, it takes me some time to get sleepy, but ever since I took NovuskinLift, it is now easier for me to get zzzzzzzs.

I will keep you updated in the coming months, as I take on this #NovuskinLiftJourney.

NovuskinLift is now available in Mercury Drug Stores and other leading drugstores.

How to Get Beautiful Underarms for P250

It’s always every girl’s dream to have the perfect underarms. The kind of pits you would always want to show off and parade whenever, wherever. The kind which does not dictate your fashion as when you can or cannot wear sleeveless.

But busy schedules get in the way, especially when you cannot properly allot the time to go to a waxing salon and hair removal clinics.

Believe me, my planner gets too colorful being jotted down by work and events, that I barely have time to go and receive my well-deserved waxing treatments. 

Next thing you know, my monthly visitor is here already! Waaah! Another week to endure waxing delay.

Given that hair removal is just one step to beautiful underarms, I would just like to share some other tips that we can do to achieve the perfect pits we’ve always been craving for.

 

  1. Don’t shave. Ever.

I have known this before I even grew hair in my underarms. Having such a vain and beauty-conscious mother is such a blessing! Hehe :p

underarm_shaving_happy

Shaving takes away the outermost layer of one of the most sensitive skin in our body, and prompts the underlying tissues to react and produce a tougher and darker skin.

“When skin is irritated, an inflammatory reaction ensues, which stimulates pigment-making cells (melanocytes) to generate more pigment, causing the skin to become darker,” says Baton Rouge, LA, dermatologist Ann C. Zedlitz, MD.

 

  1. Avoid wearing tight clothes, especially if you just had your underarm hair removed.

Tight clothes inhibits the natural growth of hair follicles causing them to go back to the skin and harbor bacteria. This is one of the reasons of painful ingrown hair.

Wearing body-fitting clothes, especially those under your arms can cause irritation, sweating, and skin friction.

 

  1. Exfoliate underarms with natural ingredients.

Lemon and Sugar

sugar lemon

Take a bowl, mix 2 teaspoon of granulated sugar and 1 squeezed lemon juice. Apply the mixture to your underarms, and wait for 10 minutes until it dries.

Gently scrub your armpits for around 2minutes then rinse with lukewarm water.

This home-made exfoliant rids your underarms from dead skin cells, smoothens texture, and removes dark-skin-causing bacteria, leaving a more supple and bright pits

 

Potato Slices

potato slices

Soak potato slices in a bowl of water for 2 minutes. Rub them to your underarms after.

Potatoes have natural bleaching properties that helps in promoting bright underarm skin.

 

Yoghurt and Orange Peel

Yogurt-With-Orange-PeelIn a bowl mix 2 tablespoon of fresh yoghurt and some dried orange peel powder.

Apply the concoction to your underarms and let it to dry for about 15 minutes. Wait for it to dry completely, then rinse with cold water and apply some moisturizer.

This brightens your underarm keeping it moisturized and supple. Yoghurt’s lactic acid eliminates the skin discoloration.

 

  1. Avoid aluminum and parabens in your deodorant and antiperspirant.

If your underarms have become a bit red, swollen, bumpy and irritated, kindly check your antiperspirant to see if there are any aluminum ingredients in it; because it is one of the ingredients available in most underarm products that highly causes breast cancer among its users.

antiperspirant

Antiperspirants basically block your sweat, which is the unnatural thing to do. We need to sweat to rid off bacteria and toxins from the body. The aluminum salt in most antiperspirants block your pores and keep you dry, but this could also irritate your skin.

The yellowing of our shirts in the underarm area is actually the stain left by the reaction of the aluminum contents with the urea (waste products from the body) in our sweat.

Antiperspirants that contain alcohol may also be too drying for some people’s skin, which can lead to irritation, as can any ingredient that ends in “-paraben” (such as methylparaben).

  1. Use natural or organic underarm skin care.

To be honest, I really had a hard time finding a natural deodorant before, but I recently saw this wittily named product that can be the answer to our underarm woes.

Pits Perfect is an all-natural deodorant spray. It whitens, fights odor-causing bacteria, leaving you fresh, cool and clean.

Don’t even start with its fragrance. It reminds me of the scent of citrus fruits and flowers combined.

I have been using Pits Perfect for a month now, and my underarm skin condition improved greatly. My chicken skin is actually smoother now, compared before.

They have clearly settled that Pits Perfect is not an antiperspirant, because the brand actually adheres to sweating, reasoning that it’s healthier and natural. 

And the best thing about this is it doesn’t have parabens and aluminum content!
I just apply 2-3 sprays per underarm, and I’m smelling fresh all day! I don’t even need to use perfume! 😀

And can you believe that this is just P250.00?

Organic Beauty by Herbal Soap Philippines

Ever since I learned how some ingredients in beauty products can be dangerous, I tried to begin a quest in search for the best organic alternatives in the land.

It’s like finding vegan spritz in a sea of a pork market. Pretty difficult, huh? Not to mention they come in real pricey tags! So what does a girl got to do?

Good fortune I call it. I happen to meet the founder of Herbal Soap Philippines, and you could imagine how happy my invisible fins were, knowing they have a huge arsenal of organic cosmetics!

IMG_20170825_174924

One of my big hurdles in beauty is maintaining my mermaid red-orange hair. The strands have faded quite a bit, and my natural roots are starting to show. Looks like sunset and darkness in one field, but mostly I just look like a choco-butternut doughnut! Hehe 😛

Combing a freshly washed bleached hair is a nightmare. My hair is unruly, and they rebel by means of falling. 😦

IMG_20170825_174919

IMG_20170825_174553-01

Good thing I found these!  Herbal Soap Philippines’ Natural Shampoo and Conditioner feels mild on my hair, and they make it very easy to comb!

I use my fingers in combing my hair, and surprisingly, the strands are very easy to manipulate now!

Ingredients include aloe vera extract, tea tree extract, argan oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, and virgin coconut oil. 

These special carrier oils are naturally produced and are perfect in maintaining manageable, soft and silky locks! Their moisture-inducing properties help make our mane their best versions ever!

I also had the chance to try their soaps, and so far this is my favorite! It is the Natural Whitening Soap, made of papaya, arbutin, licorice and bearberry, essential ingredients to restore my natural color, and fade dark spots on my skin!

IMG_20170825_174223-01

Their Natural-Antibacterial Soap is made of tea tree, lemon grass, acapulco and guava. My little pimples started to dry with continuous use!

The Natural Mosturising Soap out of goat’s milk, shea butter, aloe vera and cucumber is perfect for our dry skin. You can even leave the house without putting on lotion anymore.

I am amazed how the Natural Slimming Soap is making me sweat more than usual. I believe this is ideal to use before working out so that you are dreaded to burn more calories! It is made of seaweed and snail cream!

IMG_20170822_150802-01IMG_20170822_150659-01

My locks are more manageable now! And I get to enjoy the sun without worrying too much about my hair’s health!

They smell very natural as well! So occasional floral and grass scents are to be expected merfriends!

I absolutely love Herbal Soap Philippines’ products! And I will always swear by the organic! 😀

Miss PERi Ambassador 2017

In pageants, I am usually invited as either one of the hosts or as a sponsor representative. That is why it is fleeting to go and experience one, as the kind of person I am now – a blogger.


I came from a skin care event that day too. You can judge the outfit in this post. Haha 😀

IMG_20170718_192956

Cart J, an organic skincare company is hosting a beauty pageant to search for PERi, their organic soap line’s brand ambassador. I think it is an intelligent move because the users get to see the models and it also provides a venue for us to learn more about the products.

IMG_20170718_191009

CARTJ.com.ph is a 100% Filipino owned company operating in the Philippines. It was created on July 24, 2015 by young visionary entrepreneurs. It is an online shopping mall that provides a wide variety of products available for the general market nationwide.

The company is now aiming to widen its product assortment by opening its platform to partner merchants. Thus, making CARTJ a one-stop online shopping center.

In 2017, the company created PERi All Natural brand to be a part of its online products under CARTJ exclusives. The company is an advocate of all natural products in bringing out the natural beauty to every woman.

The product line includes but not limited to:

Skin care, hair care, beauty improvement, and personal care products.

IMG_20170718_191056

The pageant started with a dance, and they were all lovely in their pretty dresses!

IMG_20170718_192411IMG_20170718_192519IMG_20170718_192554

IMG_20170718_194105

I had a wonderful time watching them! Everybody was such a beauty; their grace and poise were commendable! I actually had ideas on which gowns I want to wear during my prenup and for my future bridesmaids! 😀

IMG_20170718_213732

The following are the new Miss PERi Ambassadors 2017.

El Fel Sharae R Banay-banay – Miss Peri Ambassador 2017

Andrea Nicole Duran – 1st Runner up

Julieta D. Adalim – 2nd runner up

Lady Franzelah D. Tabuzo – 3rd runner up

Sherlyn S. Pacu-an – 4th runner up

IMG_20170718_213648

Goodie, I had the chance to take a photo with Ms. Fel Banaybanay, the new Miss PERi Ambassador 2017.

I got so excited because I am currently in love and in search for the best organic products out there, and PERi All Natural soaps seem very promising!

I am yet to review their soaps and other products, so stay tuned for that my merfriends!

The company envisions a strong presence in the industry of e-commerce by improving its technology. Project S-commerce (social commerce) commenced in June 2017 and expected to launch in November this year.

This is going to be something to look forward to! 😀

“Don’t Panic. It’s Organic!”: 5 Things You Should Know about Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon’s Beauty Arsenal

The last time I plucked the pits was probably… hmmm.. Never!

Seriously, I never plucked them because I was such a coward to hurt myself in that manner, let alone that one-time unrequited love way back. Oops!

I actually resorted to hot wax and hair removal creams before; the hair removal cream I can manage, but not the hot wax! I was literally in tears with two arms flipped up in the air because the “meeting place” of my arms and torso were too busy being copiously wax-spread. They were too painful to remove!

So I really tried to find other means to keep the skin supple, smooth and non-chicken-ish.

IMG_20170714_113244IMG_20170714_113311

Most tend to forget that the skin is indeed the body’s biggest organ.

And just like any organ, it needs a certain amount of care for it to stay healthy and function properly. The thing is, people think that they are doing their skin good by applying certain products or having certain services done on regular basis. This, in some degree, can be true. However, the fact of the matter is, most beauty products—including those used in some of the most regular beauty services you get—contain chemicals that do more harm to the skin (and the rest of the body) than good.

IMG_20170714_113725

It is not uncommon knowledge that anything we apply on our skin eventually ends up in our bloodstream. And for this reason, more and more people are now opting for all-natural and organic beauty options.

On an average, four out of ten people readily seek out organic products. But if you’re part of the six still on the fence, here are the top reasons why you should make the switch:

  1. Less health risks

As said before, most of the beauty products available in the market today contain a standard cocktail of chemicals, which do more harm your skin than good. This, combined with exposure to harmful pesticides and preservatives used on the food sold in supermarkets, can give rise to a number of diseases.

  1. Lower exposure to allergens

IMG_20170714_114706

The chemicals commonly used in beauty products, whether to strengthen its effects or extend shelf life, can cause skin irritation and trigger allergies, particularly for those with sensitive skin.

Organic products may seem less effective compared to their chemical counterparts, but are gentler on the skin and has no side effects.

  1. Helps nourish your skin

Organic and all-natural beauty products are all plant-based. Meaning, the main ingredients used in these products come from directly from plants or parts of plants and come with nourishing power. In the same way that you are advised to eat your fruits and vegetables regularly to keep the rest of your body healthy, putting on all-natural products on the skin will definitely help supply it with much-needed vitamins and minerals to boost its health.

  1. Better quality products

IMG_20170714_114725

There’s a lot of effort and detail that goes into the production of an all-organic, product, if only because they want to encourage more people to see the benefits of going chemical-free.

  1. (Almost) Painless Regimen

IMG_20170714_113909

Waxing is arguably one of the most tedious and painful beauty regimens anyone has to go through, but through organic options—particularly sugar wax, which wraps thoroughly around the hair and allow for a cleaner pull, pain is greatly reduced.

This is where Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon comes in to save the day! Using only 100%naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax— you get a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.

With its recent opening in the newly renovated Unimart in Greenhills Shopping Center – Hey Sugar keeps on sharing the “organic way of life” to more and more people in the Metro.

Drop by Hey Sugar Unimart and expect a clean and inviting waxing haven and leave it all to the hands of expert aestheticians trained to deliver the best sugar waxing services.

IMG_20170714_115331

My eyebrows only needed a little retouch since I had them threaded about a week and a half ago, surprisingly it wasn’t that painful, and the redness ebbed faster than it used to.

Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon currently has 25 locations nationwide, including in UP Town Center, Festival Supermall, SM Bicutan, SM Sta. Rosa, SM Bacolod, SM Calamba, Harbor Point, and our newest branch Hey Sugar Unimart Greenhills.
