The Body Shop Gives Back To Nature

December 1, 2018
I cannot believe it's already December! Last Christmas felt just like months ago. It's gift-giving season once again and the stress of ticking off check marks on my very long list has been bothering me for quite some time now. The Body Shop is one of my favorite go-to brands for gift sets that are easily appreciated by friends and family. Every year, they have a wide selection of gift sets to choose from -- so wide that it makes it harder to choose which is for whom. 

This year is no different as there are 50 variation of gift selts just for this year's Christmas! Their gift collection this year is not just inspired by nature's most invigorating scents and textures, but also gives back to the wild and our Mother Earth. Every purchase with The Body Shop this holiday helps support the World Land Trust and the Woodland Trust as part of their World Bio-Bridges Mission.

I've got an early Christmas gift from The Body Shop Philippines, about 12 of these gift sets! Despite these, I can't wait to rush back to their store to shop more.

Here are just some of my favorite gift sets from this year's catalogue:

They have limited edition makeup too in metallic finishes and a star-stamp eyeliner! 

You also can opt to customize your own Christmas gift package with a handcrafted sack, or a gift card for that friend whom you just can't read!

Project Vanity x Ellana Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel

November 28, 2018
Whenever I'm asked by my readers and clients what brand of cosmetics I'd suggest if they're on a budget, I only have less than five brands I can confidently recommend to them. And one of those would be Ellana. I've always been a fan of their powders and refill my own pot twice a year. And that's just for my own personal use!

Last week, Ellana got me excited with their new collaboration with Project Vanity -- the Ellana Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel. Infused with marula oil to help nourish the brows and encourage hair growth, the water-proof and smudge-proof pomade tames and shapes brow hairs for a long-lasting hold.

There are three shades we can all choose from to match our hair color: Light Brown, Red Brown and Dark Brown

This brow gel is quick and easy to use. I used my own angled brow brush to apply this to my brows. I wore this since 4:00pm it lasted me all afternoon and night. To really test it, I took a photo of me back home after 7 hours of wearing the brow gel. It still looked fresh and natural.

As with all Ellana makeup, this Life-proof Eyebrow Gel is made with vegan, cruelty-free, and natural ingredients. They're safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mommies, as well as those with delicate skin. Being waterproof, sweatproof, and lifeproof, this is something you'd want to get (at just P599 a pot!) if you don't want to worry about your look while keeping a busy schedule.

These babies already rolled out online two weeks ago at the Ellana cosmetics website, Lazada and Shoppee and was made available at select Ellana counters (Trinoma, SM Makati, SM Megamall Department Store and SM Megamall Watsons) since November 21. By  Decemeber 10, it will be available at all Ellana counters nationwide.


Custom Brows By Browhaus

August 15, 2018
I've never really trusted anyone to do my brows until last week. Can you believe I've never had my brows threaded or waxed before? The fear of having it over-plucked, or infected by unsanitary tools made me trust no one by myself and stay away from brow salons. But upon attending Browhaus' event and hearing how professional, well-trained and sanitary they are, I immediately felt confident to finally let someone touch my brows. 

Browhaus is your one-stop brow and lash grooming salon, built for the image-conscious urbanite who demands not just function, but function and style. That’s why Browhaus has specialists who are well-equipped with knowledge towards the perfect arch. Browhaus uses a precise Blueprint System designed to create the perfect brow, employing grid technology to structure a brow creation of perfect form and symmetry.

At Browhaus, they see every face as a unique terrain with differing bone and muscle definition. Any face shape - whether round, oval, heart-shaped or square - is taken into consideration. Your eye shape, how it is set and unique concerns such as a prominent nose, chin or lip are all factored into the equation. The natural effects of aging, slackening skin and the loss of facial muscle tone are rebalanced. Even your skin type - oily, dry or combination - is considered!

The launch event last week was for their newest service Brow Resurrection. Developed and perfected by Browhaus’ dedicated research and develop team, Brow Resurrection creates realistic hair strands from root to tip to give the perfect brows. Unique only to Browhaus, this treatment uses an advance embroidery technique to create natural-looking strokes, resulting in a finer finish compared to other semi-permanent brow treatments that simply weave in parallel hair strands.

The finest multi-pins to craft out intricate life-like brow strands are used for the procedure and never reused. Each tool comes individually sealed, sterilized and will be disposed off after the treatment.

I wasn't able to try Brow Resurrection myself. I have a full brow naturally and needed almost no addition of hair strands to my brow hair. I only needed grooming and went for a session of threading. But for some of the girls at the event, they were perfect candidates for Brow Resurrection.

Here are some information you'd want to know about Brow Resurrection straight from Browhaus' management itself:

How painless is BR?

We go that extra mile to ensure a comfortable experience from start to finish. To minimisediscomfort, the therapist will apply a superior numbing cream to the treatment area. Nine out of 10 customers feedback that they don’t experience any discomfort and for those who do, the discomfort is #NoBigDealand likened to eyebrow tweezing.

How long is the treatment duration?

The entire procedure takes 90 minutes for Brow Resurrection Classic, Soft and Full and 120 minutes for Brow Resurrection Ombreto complete, consisting of consultation and the treatment itself.

Are there any after effects?

After treatment effects varies with every individual. Post-treatment, there might be slight swelling and tenderness on the treated area. Don’t immediately freak out if you think the colourof your brows are too dark after the treatment –the colouris meant to fade over the next 6 to 10 days, leaving you with the desired shade that you initially agreed on with your therapist.

How long does BR last ?

A year and a half.

Since the service was offered, already 150,000 brows were resurrected. You can visit one of their branches to know if you're a good candidate for Brow Resurrection. 

Brow Resurrection is available in all Browhaus branches nationwide: Serendra BGC, Mega Fashion Hall SM Megamall, Powerplant Mall Rockwell, Lucky Chinatown, Abreeza Davao.
