Happy International Self-Care Day!

Happy International Self-Care Day!


Having a good skincare routine is one of the best self-care you can give to yourself. Just because we are always staying at home during these trying times, doesn't mean that we stop taking care of ourselves.

As for me, I always use Bio-Oil to moisturize my skin, I love that it's not greasy when I apply it on my face and I love its scent. Over the years, I have seen how it works on my skin. Bio-Oil somehow lightens my uneven skin tone and minimizes the appearance of dark spots and stretch marks brought by my pregnancy before.

I am not getting any younger so, I don't take skin-care for granted. I try to be gentle on my skin too by using products that make me feel good and beautiful inside and out.

By the way, you can also check out my Bio-Oil Review from 5 years ago. :) And you can also purchase the Bio-Oil 200ml here.

Stay strong, stay beautiful!

Ward off Mosquitos Naturally with Moringa-O² Herbal Insect Repellent Lotion

August 26, 2019 0 Comments
With the rise of dengue cases in our country, a lot of parents are worried especially for our little ones. Most mosquito repellent products are sold out in the market, maybe because a lot of parents bought some to protect their kids and family.

I am just lucky my sister-in-law found this in one of the Malls here in Davao. It's the only one left on the rack at that time, so she immediately buy it.

I personally haven't tried the Moringa-O² Herbal Insect Repellent but based on my Sister-in-law's review, it was great and effective in warding off mosquitos. And I agree with her when we tested the lotion, so far we haven't been bitten by mosquitos after using it and leaves our skin moisturized. The fact that it is deet-free, paraben-free and made from natural ingredients makes me happy, so I feel assured and confident to use it on my daughter and my family.

Ward off Mosquitos Naturally with Moringa-O² Herbal Insect Repellent Lotion

Moringa-O² Naturals Citronella Insect Repellent Lotion contains a rare blend of extracts & oils from moringa (“malunggay”), olive, and omega (sunflower) that feed your skin with rich anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. It contains aloe vera to moisturize skin, paraben-free so it's safe for kids and pregnant women. It is deet-free, but contains citronella to naturally ward off dengue mosquitoes and other pests.

Bio-Oil Review

September 27, 2015 0 Comments
When I was still pregnant (the year 2011) and on my 3rd trimester, I started to have stretch marks and dark marks on my belly. I don't know why or what caused it and I am not so happy about it. A few months after giving birth to my baby girl, my sister gave me this product, Bio-Oil, and said that I should try this on my stretch marks

I wasn't regularly using Bio-Oil because I got busy being a newbie mom, but whenever I get the chance,  I would diligently put some on the areas where I have a lot of stretch marks; in my belly. Anyways, months and years had passed and I forgot about using this product. But what I noticed is that my skin had lighten and my stretch marks aren't that visible in some areas of my body. I didn't use anything except  Bio-Oil. Now, I believe this brand is really effective and so I started using it again. 

Aside from using Bio-oil on my stretch marks, I also use it in my face. Yes, I even use Bio-Oil before applying make-up, its a very good moisturizer and won't leave an oily residue on my face and doesn't clog my pores.

I didn't notice it for a long time but my acne scars had lightened over the years and I believe it's because of Bio-Oil since it is the only product that I've been religiously using for years.

Bio-Oil contains numerous ingredients that help the skin, become softer and smoother thereby improving the appearance of aging and wrinkled skin. With regular application, Bio-Oil helps to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone. It also prevents the formation and improves the appearance of existing stretch marks formed during pregnancy, teenage growth spurts, or periods of rapid weight gain.

Here are the Key Ingredients in Bio-Oil:

Vitamin A: Promotes the formation of new collagen and assists in skin renewal, helping to increase elasticity and improve skin’s texture and tone.

Vitamin E: Helps maintain healthy-looking skin, protecting it from the effects of free radicals which cause skin damage and premature aging. Vitamin E is also a fantastic moisturizer.

PurCellin Oil: Improves smoothness and ease of application, making Bio-Oil readily absorbed by the skin. It also acts as an emollient, leaving the skin soft, smooth, and supple.

What I liked about this product is that it absorbs quickly into my skin and it doesn't feel greasy after using it. And it smelled good too, maybe it's because of the plant extracts like the lavender oil, rosemary oil, chamomile oil and calendula oil that has been added into this product. By the way, it's hypoallergenic and ideal for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. So far, I haven't had any problems using this product. ;)

You can buy Bio-Oil at Amazon or if you're in the Philippines, you can buy it any Watsons stores nationwide and at Lazada, click here: https://invol.co/cl141lz. :)
