Guess who got her Althea Beauty Box?!

Last Friday, I was busily tinkering around the Althea PH Website. I found shopping for Korean beauty products really easy because I can easily navigate or just search for the beauty products I want.

Now I won’t act like an expert in Korean Beauty products because I am not. I just am a fan for some of their products and I know that they are really big nowadays in the beauty/cosmetics industry. So when I saw the wide array of products I was like “Whoa what does this do?!” I felt like a little girl in the candy store. I just didn’t know which to check!

The beauty of their site is that the products were grouped according to use, like SKINCARE, MAKEUP, CLEANSER(I think cleansers are a big thing there that it has it’s own tab), PACK & MASK(Koreans love their Facemasks), NEW ARRIVALS and TRENDY ITEMS(Best Sellers). You can also sort their products according to relevance, price or manufacturer. I honestly sorted mine by price because I am running on a budget. Hihihihi

  • They offer free shipping DIRECTLY TO YOUR DOORSTEP for orders Php1500.00 and above – You don’t have to worry about going to the post office and being charged. And as a Filipino I found this very relieving. That’s actually my main concern when it comes to online shopping.

OPI Funny Bunny for My Tips and Toes

I’ve been a good girl this week. Gotta reward myself with some pampering because it will be an extremely busy 3 weeks ahead of me.

image

If you still haven’t noticed, the holidays is upon us. Just last night I experienced heavy traffic and I’m sure there’d be more of that in the coming days.

So brace yourself because the holidays is coming!

I felt stressed this week so I decided to reward myself by trying this 24 hour salon along Aurora Boulevard. I think it worked its magic.

I chose OPI’s Funny Bunny.  Because the color is nice without being too bold and I think it looks elegant. Just the right shade for going out and it doesn’t look cheap so I can wear it in the office.

I might get my mom a bottle for Christmas. I know she’s been looking for this shade and well it’s one of our favorite brands. ^-^

Heads up! Gary V on Novuhair: Putting Energy Into Prevention

Nothing describes Gary Valenciano quite like his moniker “Mr. Pure Energy,” Heis the very image of youthful vibrance, whether onstage or not. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he values the way he looks the same way that he values the core of who he is: a prayerful, faithful husband, dependable father, and a part of what makes Gary stay young looking is his head of hair. 

Gary V for Novuhair.jpg

What many people don’t know is that, like all other men his age, Gary once worried about hair thinning and hair loss. That’s why, at the first signs of the problem, Gary sought to find ways to prevent it from becoming worse. 

“I first noticed the hair loss in the shower, after I toweled my hair dry. Then one day, my team of hairstylists noticed that my hair was thinning, too. That’s when they told me to look for the product that Fanny Serrano was using, a product called NOVUHAIR,” remarked Gary on his journey to regaining control over his hair loss.

NOVUHAIR is a topical scalp lotion that is a unique combination of 14 different natural ingredients and essential oils for a healthier hair and scalp. One of the factors of hair loss, according to studies, is stress, something that Gary experiences on almost a daily basis. Other factors include hereditary disorders, a persistent illness, major surgery, hormonal problems, childbirth & delivery, medications, infections, pollutants, and even excessive exposure to sunlight. 

Novuhair

Contrary to popular belief, hair loss is as much a problem for women as it is for men. In many cases, hair loss may be prevented or alleviated through early detection. In the case of Gary, his decision to try NOVUHAIR to prevent his symptoms from worsening made a big difference, and within a few months, he saw remarkable results.

Gary shares his experience with NOVUHAIR as he tells the story of their family hair history: “Hair loss runs in our family, too, even if it sometimes skips a generation. My brother and grandfather both lost their hair, but my dad still has a full head of hair at 87. I just wanted to make sure I take control of my symptoms. 

Now, I use NOVUHAIR everyday, and I’ve noticed that I don’t shed as much hair as I did before, especially after toweling my hair dry. And my hairstylists noticed it, too. I love using NOVUHAIR because it has this minty, cool effect that makes me feel like my hair is always clean and fresh.”

  “In less than a month and half, I already saw results even if I was told to wait three to four months before I can see a difference. The effects on me were much faster. There were fewer strands on my white towel, which basically was within the normal boundaries of hair loss for an average person. Before using NOVUHAIR, I used to shed more.” This is due to the fact that NOVUHAIR penetrates deep to help rejuvenate, nourish, & maintain moisture in the scalp and hair. By improving the blood circulation in the scalp, NOVUHAIR helps stimulate hair growth and aid in preventing further, excessive hair fall, while also improving the overall appearance of the hair.

“I never endorse a product that I did not experience first. I have to make sure it is really effective. With Novuhair, I can say that it has really contributed to my peace of mind and overall well-being. And, heads up, as Novuhair is now part of my daily routine, which includes prayer, diet, and medication. God has truly lived up to his promise in my life, and as he says in Psalm 92:14 ‘I will keep you fruitful even in old age. Fresh and green.’ I am very happy now that Novuhair is a part of that.”

NOVUHAIR, Nature’s Answer to Hair Loss is available in all Mercury Drug outlets, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, South Star Drug & Manson Drug, Metro Gaisano Pharmacy, The Landmark (Makati & TriNoma), J Centre Mall (Cebu), KCC Malls (Gen.

Review for Up and Up Skin Lifting Serum

So I’ve recently posted about Up & Up cream and with the help of #MetroBuzzBloggers, #Ocigroup, #Beautique and Lady Luck I was able to win an Up & Up cream.

For those who have yet to read about Up &Up here is my post.

UpandUp

It is supposed to add to the Filipinas’ options on a non-surgical skincare solution that is both safe and easy on the pocket. Up&Up Cream is one product that you can trust to enhance beauty and restore youthful glow in an instant without the need for surgery.

My friends I’m not that old, but I’m not that young too. I’m in my late 20s and I don’t have wrinkles. In the last few weeks I’ve noticed one thing, my eyebags. Now my eyebags have always been a concern before. My brother even compared it to traveling bags because of its sheer size. But before with proper sleep they go back to normal. Well not anymore! I guess that’s when age comes in.

So without further ado they will be the problem spot I will try to fix.

12308201_1261248437226060_3309869152242493517_o

Please take note that I’m wearing concealer for the first two pics and I’m bare-faced with the after pics as I’m already planning to sleep.

Gosh no wonder this product costs a pretty penny! Within 10mins it vanished my humongous eyebags! The 1st after pic is while I’m moderately smiling and the last one was while I am wearing ng biggest smile. Thanks ‪#‎metrobuzzbloggers‬,  ‪#‎upandup‬ and ‪#‎ocigroup‬ ^-^

I would also like to let you know that I was up the entire day last Sunday and slept at 1:30 AM! I woke up at 5:30 AM Because one of our dogs want to go the yard and the effect is still there even after I’ve cooked brunch at 10:30 AM.

So yes I’m confident that with consistent use, your target areas will look more useful. This is definitely something I would recommend at Php 799.00 from Beautique.Ph

Beauty Lane brings Milan’s hair master Elgon, to the PH

Italy’s most sought after master educator in hair and coloring, Alessandro Cavazzini is in the Philippines to conduct a series of trainings for local hair stylists and colorists, courtesy of Elgon Professional Hair Color. The Milan-based brand is exclusively distributed in the country by Beauty Lane Philippines, Incorporated, headed by its President and CEO, Dina de Villa-Tobojka.

Elgon 2

Through the trainings, local salon specialists will learn the ever-evolving science and art of hair color, get a deeper insight into the brand, Elgon, and learn how to maximize its products. “The trainings will be more on using Elgon products in new ways. It’s something we can pass on to our customers here because stylists are constantly looking for something new”. Just recently, Tobojka, along with Beauty Lane Philippines, Inc. General Manager Rebecca Lopez and Jude Hipolito and Rose Velasco of JURO Salon Exclusif, the brand’s Philippine ambassadors had recently undergone the same training under Cavazzini in Milan.

Elgon is one of the most preferred brands of hair color solutions in Italy as it is well known for its reputation as leaders and experts of innovation when it comes to hair color.

Elgon

In its 45 years in business, Elgon was able to create products that can serve and treat different needs of various salon owners and goers. It’s a brand that guarantees quality, and is dedicated in putting the health and safety of its customers first, before anything else. “A testament to their dedication towards health and safety is their Elgon Color Remover, because you can remove color safely, without bleach. Elgon is a brand that is very conscious about health and safety, absolutely, it’s one of the things I absolutely loved about them. It’s just not, sell, sell, sell. It’s selling with a heart. Selling with concern. Selling with a soul. You can see what the company stands for just by looking at the product line. Elgon’s products have characteristics directed to health, safety, and the environment as well, which says a lot about the company.”

Elgon 10min

To prove its dedication and concern towards its customers, Elgon has a solution for people who want a certain look, but don’t have all day to spend in a salon to achieve it. “Salons don’t have to turn-down customers who are in a hurry. There are people who come to salons and say, ‘I only have thirty minutes, can you dye my gray hair?” Lopez said. “Actually, if you answer a salon asking for that kind of service and tell them you only have ten minutes, the stylists will probably laugh at you. With Elgon’s 10 Minute Color, time won’t be an issue. Not only will you be able to make a hurrying customer satisfied, but you can also service more customers in less time. This significantly increases your salon’s performance.” Tobojka said. Now, a product like this has to come at a high price, right? The good news is it doesn’t! It’s actually cheaper compared to the Philippine’s current leading brand of hair color.

To many salon owners, Elgon products are competitively priced considering that it is better performing compared to many brands out in the market. Businesswise, all these characteristics in Elgon products can definitely help boost the productivity of salons.

Beauty Lane Philippines, Incorporated, the premier salon and beauty solutions provider in the country, is the exclusive Philippine distributor of Elgon Professional Hair Color. The company is also known for its success in bringing world-renowned brands of salon and beauty products in the country, including Brazilian Blowout, China Glaze, Gigi Wax, and Ardell, to name a few.
