Review: Aloe Vera Soothing Gel from

When it comes to skincare and beauty products, ofcourse, we wanted to make sure that what we are getting is 100% authentic and effective.
As for me, I am buying skincare products shipped directly from Korea thru the Althea website to ensure having authentic, safe and high quality products to use. The best thing is that it is cheaper online compared to mall prices. The purchase was always convenient, saves time and money!
One of my best buy is the Aloe Vera Soothing Gel that\’s popularly considered as  holy grail product because of its many uses and affordability. I have known the goodness of aloe vera decades ago as I witnessed my older cousins pick up aloe vera plants to use as natural hair treatment. And yes, I have tried it too…

I am now more committed to skincare, that is why I have this  authentic aloe gel as my essential product. 

My first  Aloe Gel is from Nature Republic. It says 92% Aloe and sold at 335 pesos while  I got the chance to try this 100% Aloe from, sold at 20% Off the original price for 219 pesos only.

This product acts as topical treatment for sores, minor burns, including sunburns making it a must have item for emergency burns and wounds due to its rich anti-inflammatory compound.

It’s enriched with natural aloe vera and mild to the skin. It can be used to moisturize the face, arms, legs and hair.

Compared to the aloe gel from Nature Republic, this one is less sticky and doesn’t leave a feeling of gel residue behind. It is odorless; doesn\’t t have the aloe scent unlike the other brand.

I got the chance to put it to test when I suffered from boiling water burn and find it equally effective.

Here’s the Top 10 Uses and Benefits of Aloe Vera Gel:

1. Prevent pesky pimple and treat acne.

2. It acts as a moisturizer.

3. Treats cold sores.

4. Soothes irritated skin and treats sunburns.

5. As a shaving cream or after shave.

6. It fights aging.

7. It lessens the visibility of stretchmarks and lightens skin.

8. Take the sting or itch out from insect bites.

9. As a hair conditioner replacement.

10. As an all natural make-up remover.

My Thoughts?

This one\’s a good buy because it is cheaper but equally effective. I\’m also using it on my daughter\’s hypersensitive skin  for instant relief due to insect bites and dry skin.  I use my contact lens case to have it on the go for emergency uses. Truly a must have item!

Review: NutriWhite Glutathione + Vitamin C from

I have been on and off taking a Glutathione supplement. Not that I don\’t fully recognized its benefits but mostly for the reason of getting tight on budget sometimes that I have to cut it off my list. 
Last month, I got the chance to get back on using this powerful antioxidant from I received this NutriWhite (60 Caps) Glutathione + Vitamin C for review, what excites me the most is when I learned that it\’s on promotional SALE of 997 pesos from its regular price of 1,500! A good chance to be back on regular use not only due to its discounted price but on promo of buying more to save. They have this promo as follows:
Buy 2 Get 50% OFF your 3rd (Add 3 Total To Cart To Apply)
Buy 3 Get 1 FREE (Add 4-6)
Buy 6 Get 2 FREE (Add 7-11)
Buy 9 Get 3 FREE (Add 12 or more)
Recommended dose is 1 or 2 capsules per day

  • Formulation: 500mg L-glutathione, 100mg non-acidic Vitamin C
  • Contains 30,000,000 micrograms gluta
  • Premium Quality of Glutathione
  • Money Back Guarantee If You See No Results in 14 days
  • Take 1-2 Capsules Everyday For Great Results
  • 60 Capsules Bottles
  • 100% Authentic
Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants and is  is naturally produced by our liver. It is found in many of the healthy foods you eat on such as spinach, tomatoes, oranges, broccoli, and some meats.
Here\’s the reasons why you should take Glutathione:
  • It has free radical and toxin busting powers and it is often called the master antioxidant because of this. Glutathione also repairs the cells in our body and get rid of harmful toxins caused by stress, lifestyle choices, and aging.
  • Helps fight off illnesses. Research has shown promising results on wide range of illness and health conditions such as autism, cancer, cataracts, asthma, liver problems, HIV and Parkinson’s Disease.
  • Helps Boost Your Immune System
Good thing it is combined with Vitamin C, so there\’s no need for separate intake. Vitamin C improves the efficiency of Glutathione as it retain its active components so this one\’s a tandem for guaranteed results.
My Thoughts?
I have been experiencing a gooood night sleep and felt more energized than before while taking these capsules. The guaranteed result of visibly lighter skin was just an added bonus. You know when you\’re near to forty, a calm peaceful mind, healthy body and a good sleep is everything… agree?
I have done numerous collaborations from brands and this one is added to my faves. I think I\’m a converted regular customer as I can clearly found another trusted brand especially now that they are on SALE 😃.

Althea\’s New Make Up Collection!

Althea Korea recently launched its own line of Make-Up products! And, as one of Althea\’s Angels, this is a call for a new beauty inspiration and a chance for me to learn and create a make-up look \’coz I honestly don\’t know how to. 😅
I receive these make-up  products as a Lunar New Year\’s gift from Althea Korea and it does give me the impression of welcoming the year filled with inspiration and a reminder that everyone\’s not too old to start learning and trying new stuff!
This Make-Up box contains:
4 shades of Concealer
4 shades of Lip Tints
2 shades Eye Glitter
Eye Shadow Palette
& a bonus Spot Film Gel (for acne/ spots before make-up!)
To begin, I watched several make-up tuts on youtube and I love how it seems so perfectly easy to apply eye shadow while filming. Hah! On my second try, I finally decided that my vid is okay for posting as \”Beginner\’s Make-up\” using Althea Make-up products.
So here\’s my dolled-up look of using this Exclusive products! I love how the Spotlight Eye Glitter highlights the eyes for a subtle glow. You can also go full-on glitter look for a sultry night glam.

As per Google, as I searched:
\”How to Apply Eye Shadow for beginners\” 😅

Step 1: Prime your lids.

Step 2: Pick an eye shadow palette. 

Step 3: Paint your entire lid with the lightest color.

Step 4: Apply the medium shade.

Step 5: Use the darkest shade in your crease.

Step 6: Add eyeliner.

Step 7: Coat your lashes with mascara.

Step 8: Finish the rest of your makeup.

Here goes my video as the start of my Make-Up Journey:

I created that make-up look using the following products:

I also add up other products from Althea: The Petal Velvet Powder in #PinkLavender and Air Fit Cushion Blusher (Rilakkuma Edition) in BR01 ~ brown shade, considered to be more suitable for contouring/shading.
And, brushes from Suesh that I got from an event as blogger\’s take-away 3 years ago! yep, never been use until now.

To conceal, I used Flawless Creamy Concealer #02 Ginger. Dotting on the targeted areas to whisk away blemishes and panda eyes is the way to go. This time, I went on full application not just dots to cover those dark under eye circles.

This  Sunrise & Moonrise Eye Shadow Palette was made in collaboration with Bunga Citra Lestari, an Indonesian pop star and actress known for her glamorous fem style.

These 8 shades will take you from gorgeous daytime to perfect sultry night time look. The pigmented shadows glide easily onto the skin and blends out nicely.

I am used to having a  simple look, so I opted for a light to dark shade of brown. The rich brown with golden shimmer becomes my instant fave as it adds up glamour. And, a touch of sparkly shimmery with this  Spotlight Eye Glitter in #01 Gold Light that can be use as eye shadow or liner for a perky glamorous peepers!

And as a final touch, I use this long-wearing Watercolor Cream Tint in Strawberry Cream. It has a moisturizing formula of a gloss that makes a bold deliciously juicy lips.

I\’d always go for a simple yet vibrant look and this new make-up products from Althea perfectly matches my dolled-up style.

Final thoughts?

I love that Althea came up with these products that is long-wearing! The eyeshadow palette and lippie has more staying power, and even the eye glitter is budge-proof, making less time for retouch!

These products is definitely worth the price.  I found the Eye shadow Palette too costly, though; but the rest of the products is budget friendly.

Latisha\’s Niacinamide, Vitamin B3 Serum: Review

Sure, aging is truly unavoidable but we don\’t have to be left defenseless and needs to act fast to help minimize the first sign of skin aging 😉. They say that the best time to start using anti-aging products can be as early as 21… but regardless, the most important thing to consider is finding the right product for your skin type.

I personally choose to fight skin aging before I hit the 30\’s. Now, 6 years later I\’m still on the roll and have develop a good skincare habit that requires discipline and determination. Hah! Yes, discipline. While putting on night creams, sunscreens, moisturizing creams etc., or incorporating a 3 to 10- step Korean skin care routine can be a tedious task, keep in mind that it is worth investing.

Weeks ago, I received an invite to try this Skin Lightening and Anti-Aging product, the Latisha Niacinamide Serum. I\’m familiar about the goodness of Niacinamide or Vitamin B3, so I immediately agreed and happy to discover a product that I can add up to my skin care regimen.


  • Lightens Skin
Niacinamide is a first-rate solution to pigmentation control without the harmful side effects commonly associated with many other skin lightening agents.
  • Reduces Dark Spots
As a skin lightening agent, niacinamide effectively reduces areas of jagged pigmentation and age spots.
  • Diminishes Fine Lines
Niacinamide increases hydration levels. The end result is skin that is softer, smoother, and less prone to irritation, redness, and sensitivity. 

I have normal skin type and doesn\’t have much of skin issues such as blemishes or acne. My only concern was to fight skin aging, improve skin texture through hydration plus skin lightening.

I \’m currently on my 3-Step Korean Skin care routine that aims to have translucent, poreless, and more youthful looking skin and somehow  learned that layering skin care products in correct order is the key to maximize its effectiveness.

So here goes my ideal order:
  1. Cleanser
  2. Toner (Althea Primer Water for me!)
  3. Serum – Enters  Niacinamide
  4. Eye Cream
  5. Moisturizer – (Fixer Cream)
  6. SPF

I actually have other fave cleansers, luxurious cream mask, and massage pack,  that I occasionally use depending on my skin needs at the moment. Knowing what ingredients that can best soothes my skin at a particular time serves as my guide on what and when to use it.

As for Niacinamide, this one\’s uniquely compatible with any of the products in my skincare routine, including those that contain retinol, peptides, hyaluronic acid, AHAs BHA, and all types of antioxidants. That is why having this product with excellent ingredient I know can give a high boost on moisture effect and keeping the skin smooth.

This is designed for everyday use underneath moisturizer and sunscreen.

The most helpful benefit of Niacinamide is that it can help renew and restore the surface of skin against moisture loss and dehydration. 

My Thoughts?

I\’m beginning to love this product because it\’s fast absorbing, lightweight and non-sticky. It doesn\’t have a luxurious scent though but still okay because I will still lock it with moisturizer and my ever staying BB cream with SPF.

This is recommended for long term use and a  permanent must have for healthy looking skin. I think this 60ml pump bottle can last up to 2-3 months. Enough to visibly notice improvement on appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness, and a weakened skin surface.

Get Softer & Clearer Skin with Althea\’s Milk Peel Cream Mask (Review!)

I received this Althea\’s Milk Peel Cream Mask for review as part of  the Beauty Ambassador program, six weeks ago. Came Holiday Season and I only got until  today to sit and write up my honest to goodness take on this product.
This product is one of Althea Exclusives that is \”made with the belief that you deserve the best quality, at affordable price\”. Designed and made in Korea, directly shipped here in PH with Free shipping on orders above Php999.

 ✔️ It has refreshing peeling powers containing both AHA and BHA extracts that gently yet effectively whisk away dead skin cells to prevent flakiness.

Dead skin cell care with AHA+BHA

  • Remove external impurities in pores and on the skin surface

 ✔️ Formulated with casein protein from milk to revitalize and moisturize the skin. 
 ✔️ A self-bubbling clay texture creates a dense lather to remove dead skin cells.

This is a 50ml pump bottle with simple packaging. 
A peeling mask that promises to provide the skin smoothness and clarity with daily use.

Clarity! so as instructed, I used it daily for a hope to get clearer skin. And it did! I used it for a month and notices skin improvement. The rich and luxurious milk foam bubbles is a plus to convinced me of keeping it on my skincare routine. 💕

So yes, I personally purchased a second bottle  to continue the good results that I am having. I ordered along with the Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist on a 1+1 promo that arrived 4 days before Christmas, perfect timing for gifting.


  • An exfoliating mask that transforms from a clay texture to a whipped cream lather.
  • Contains milk protein extract to moisturize and revitalize.
  • Formulated with AHA & BHA to gently but effectively remove dead skin cells.


Dampen the skin and apply an even layer onto the skin, massaging till a rich lather forms. Leave on for 30-60 seconds before rinsing away with warm water.


Milk protein extract – Moisturizes and strengthens the skin
AHA & BHA – Gently exfoliates away dead skin cells for a smooth complexion
Kaolin – Detoxifies and pulls out impurities from the pores


  • Combination Skin Types
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Rough, sensitive skin that needs gentle exfoliation
  • Dry skin that needs to stay moisturized even after peeling

I have normal skin type and doesn\’t have much of concern except for my panda eyes 😵 but this product that promises a gulp of  skin hydration with daily triple care is for keeps.


Highly recommended as one of investment product piece for your skincare regimen that\’s definitely worth the money. Get yours here.

An Honest Review at Althea\’s Petal Velvet Sunaway

There are many known benefits of using sunscreen protection and it is a must to apply when heading outdoors! but I recently discovered that sunscreen should be wear even when spending the day indoors for UV exposure?!
Oh well, I have been faithfully using my Total Age Repair wrinkle reduce BB cream that has SPF45/PA+++. I am wearing it daily as I love how it provides perfect coverage, anti-wrinkle and sun protection, at once. So, this counts as an everyday sunscreen protection for regular days. It is only during pool or beach trips, that I turn to advanced sun protection creams for face and body.
That\’s basically my when and where preference of using sunscreens. I have normal skin type, so I am open on discovering new products to try until I found something that I can actually use.
Last month, Althea Korea  launch a brand new product under the Petal Velvet line, and send over the \”Petal Velvet Sunaway\” sunscreen kit for me to try.
It\’s super lightweight and quick to absorb and provides high level of  protection from UV rays with a petal-like finish. It surprisingly blends well without white residue, and has high protection grade of SPF50+ PA++++ for maximum sun protection. It’s floral scented and without sticky and oily feels, but  it has rich kind of floral scent that I\’m actually not a fan of (sorry…).

The kit comes with 3 variants of Petal Velvet powders in #0 translucent#23 warm beige, and the special edition  #PinkLavender.

This is a perfect skin smoothing powder to set a fresh and matte radiant finish. I have been using the pink lavender powder already before I received this set so I tried the translucent powder and intend to give the warm beige to my SIL as a Christmas gift while I\’m keeping the pink lavender as my stock 😉.

Now back to the Petal Velvet Sunaway, I tried using this for a week and let go of my usual morning skincare routine to give way for this product.

True to its claim, it does provide a petal-like finish or poreless coverage and easy to blend. It\’s like magically transforms a liquid into powder. I\’m almost inlove with this product as I fully understand the need to have daily sun protection but I\’m torn to sticking to my ever reliable BB cream (with SPF45/PA+++)  for heavy coverage of my dark circles (as seen below 😳).

Overall, the Althea Petal Velvet Set is highly recommended for daily use to help minimize skin aging, unless you have other skin concerns to prioritize.

Althea\’s launch offer of this New PETAL VELVET SET -Moisture filled Sun and Sebum Control at 10% OFF the Sunaway + your choice of powder is still up. Get yours from this link to try if this affordable duo is a perfect fit for your skincare needs.

Just a gentle reminder on sunscreen: wear it daily and  re-apply as needed! ❤️

Simple and High Quality Clothing from Zan.Style

With the rapid growth of e-commerce featuring safe and convenient online shopping, we can now shop with confidence even for fashion clothing considering the customer support that an online shop can provide. Delivering customers expectation, being true to what is advertised, and providing good quality items is what turning the consumers\’  doubt into  trust.

When shopping online, it becomes a must to carefully look on customer\’s feedback with regards to quality and expected delivery time.

So, when ZAN.STYLE was introduced to me as an apparel brand that aim to bring all the fashion and beauty lovers with premium daily wear clothing which can highlight personality; ofcourse, I have to take a look on real feedback, from real customers!

Here goes the customers\’ review from Amazon:

Take note, \”Premium Quality Clothing\”! Now who wouldn\’t want to have a high quality items to wear? I was tasked to have my own review to actually see, touch, and feel Zan.Style\’s claim of \”Simple but not monotonous, high-quality items but with reasonable price.\”

When the items for review arrived, I was surprised on its packaging! This is the first time I received clothing items carefully packaged in a box. Each item was neatly placed in a ziplock bag with cardboard and plastic pins to keep in place.

Zan.Style items from Singapore! Wow…😏

The promised of carrying out strict quality controls to ensure delivery with utmost care was met. For every item, they assure three quality checks: Factory, Local Warehouse and Pre-delivery. This results to receiving a high satisfaction rate from the customers.

Now, here\’s my Top Three Choices from ZAN.STYLE:

1. Stripe A-line Dress – Gray

This time, I went from my usual size of \”Small\” to Extra Small\”, carefully considering the size chart and the model\’s stats vs. mine. I altered this one on shoulder strap and sides because its a bit loose on the chest part. I never realized that on model\’s photo, but still loved this dress as it creates a fun and younger looking style.

Now it\’s a perfect fit, agree?

2. Loose  Strap Tank Top – White

Enter the coupon code to enjoy a huge discount on this Loose Strap Tank Top. I got this on \”small\” size. I love the classy strap and can easily tell that it was made of  high quality polyester that holds its shape well.

This was actually my first time to choose from \’bottoms\’ category from an online clothing site! The described material of 97 percent cotton and 3 percent spandex was pretty much accurate.

My overall remarks?

If you are on the look for simple and high quality items, then this is the recommended online shop for you. I honestly think that the price was higher compared to other shopping site, but then again, \”ITEMS of high quality, doesn\’t come cheap\”.

It\’s good that they have an on-going promotion where everyone can enjoy 75% OFF for some of the clothes in the website. Always the best time to shop, is when there\’s a big SALE, right?
Well, this is another shopping site that\’s  recommendable for its high quality material and being true from what it advertised. I am very much pleased with ZAN.STYLE\’s durable, well-crafted and high clothing pieces. It is also the best site to shop on quality basics women\’s and men\’s wear collection.

Why Do Smart Moms Choose Merries Diapers?

MERRIES, Japan\’s #1 Diaper Brand, is now in the Philippines!
Finding the perfect diaper for your baby\’s needs can be a frustrating – and sometimes painful process, as a wrong choice can lead to your baby\’s discomfort, leakages, and even health concerns.
Babies’ skin has only about ½ the thickness of adults\’ and is very delicate, which is why they need a diaper thatprovides extra care and comfort. It\’s a good thing that Merries Diapers, Japan\’s #1 baby diaper brand for 10consecutive years, are now available in the Philippines!
Why do smart moms choose Merries Diapers? Because it offers seven (7) features and benefits:
*Tape type features
  1. · Soft Poo Leak Guard
  2. · Color changing wetness indicators
  3. · Excellent Absorbency and Long Lasting Dryness
  4. · Exceptional Breathability
  5. · Ultra Soft and Fluffy Surface that is gentle to baby\’s delicate skin
  6. · Soft reusable magic seal
  7. · Merries Bunnies cute designs
Merries diaper is gentle to the babies sensitive skin as the material is so soft from the inside and out while quickly absorbing urine before the skin gets wet, thus preventing rashes and leakage. With a triple layer air-through system (tape type) and airy waist channel (pants type) that releases the heat and moisture inside the diaper, Merries diaper keeps babies’ skin dry and comfortable as they play and sleep.
Last week, I received a sample pack from Merries for review. Unfortunately, they don\’t carry XXL size of diaper here in the Philippines.
The biggest size that was sent to me was Medium, so I never get to try it on my 3 year old daughter. I was curious to see its quality, so I opened this one to check out if  it can truly gives exceptional breathability. 
True enough, it has pluffy surface and I can easily tell that it was made of highest quality material that can provide gentle care for baby\’s delicate skin. I just take a quick look and put it back to its packaging because I will send  it to a friend for his 3mos. old baby and so I can ask for honest feedback.
Here it goes:
Plus, I asked a close friend living in Nagoya-shi Aichi Japan, if she\’s familiar with the brand. I was surprised to know that its their trusted brand for their baby.
Well, with that I can say that this brand is worth the try to see if you can depend on its strong absorbency and offers comfort that your baby needs. It\’s a bit pricey compared to other brand, but that\’s how it goes! Items of highest quality doesn\’t come cheap.
