Dove's Most Skin-caring Formula

May 29, 2017
When I was a teen, I think I've tried a couple of deodorants, local and imported, just because that was the thing teens try out a lot at a certain phase. And man, have my underarm suffered! The fragrances in those formulas were harsh that my underarm skin got really irritated to the point that I swore off deos. Fast-forward ten years and Dove came along. I was hesitant to try first because of my past experiences with deos but after one try of the Original Dove deodorant, I never looked back.

Dove has been one of few the brands that has never failed me yet. I have highly recommended most of their products, from their moisturizing soap that saved me when I run out of facial wash to their gentle shampoos and conditioners that truly helped manage my damaged hair. This year, Dove, the number one brand recommended by dermatologists, takes underarm care a step higher by launching their most skin-caring formula ever. The improved formulation promises to deliver superior care and mildness to underarm skin, all while maintaining the same level of sweat and odor protection as the previous one.

The new Dove deodorants also have an improved fragrance: softer and less harsh, but maintaining the signature clean and calming Dove scent.

If you're a new to deodorants, go for Dove Original deodorant for basic care and protection. It contains Dove’s signature ¼ moisturizing cream to deliver gentle care, and to repair your underarm skin. Enriched with Vitamins E and F, it is specially formulated to take care of skin that’s constantly exposed to shaving, and waxing, giving you lighter, smoother underarms.

Stubborn dark spots? Dove Ultimate White is made with face care serum ingredients like Omega 6 and hydrating glycerol, Dove Ultimate White lightens underarm skin from within.

Sensitive underarms? Dove introduces its new variant, Dove Sensitive, that's formulated with hypoallergenic and fragrance-free ingredients and has no alcohol or colorants. It’s paraben-free, fragrance-free, and is made to nourish and calm the skin.

Dove is championing the need for enhanced care for this delicate and sensitive area of the body, and believes underarm care should be an extension of one’s beauty regime. I do too!

Experience Dove’s most skin-caring formula yet and achieve the beautiful underarms you’ve always wanted. That’s #TheBeautifulTruth. Dove Deodorants are available in all leading supermarkets, department stores, and drugstores nationwide.


Maternity Shoot: Dazzling Mom Shaine

May 24, 2017
My first post after giving birth is to share with you guys the first makeup booking I accepted after giving birth, two months post-partum. It was bittersweet leaving my baby girl for a couple of hours as I missed her terribly (and worried for no reason) but at the same time got really excited to be part of the universe again! I was ecstatic that my first job would be for Shaine's maternity shoot. She had our shoot at 35 weeks pregnant, just like I did last January. Besides all the pregnancy and mommy talks, what made the shoot more fun was working with the creative team of Boudoir Dolls lead by Madoka Tomas & the ever talented Jeff Galang. In the end, I was grateful I forced myself to get back to working and not have missed this shoot.

Strip Mama

February 18, 2017
I can't believe we've entered our ninth month into this pregnancy! And that means preparations, preparations, preparations for the coming of our baby AND the dreaded labor! I honestly don't know what to expect when I deliver, but I sure am going to prepare for it. One of the priorities I've listed is an appointment with Strip Manila to clean me up 'down there' in preparation for labor.

I've been drying to try Strip's limited edition Mulled Wine Wax since it debuted last year December. Following the same well-loved formula that Strip has been known for, the premium Mulled Wine Wax is perfect for those who are thinking of getting Brazilian or Boyzilian for the first time or for those who have sensitive skin (which pregnancy does to you!) Infused with the warm and festive scent of red wine, orange, cloves, and cinnamon, it's still is packed with the healing effects of aloe vera and chamomile. Just what an uncomfortable mama in her third trimester needs! 

Why did I choose to get striped in Strip? One, because of their no doubling dipping policy, which I think we all agree should be the standard. And two, because their waxes are known for significantly reducing any discomfort that is often associated with waxing, making it ideal for use on sensitive areas. And true enough, though not pain-free, the gentle touch of their highly-trained therapist made this process tolerable for me. It took me fifteen minutes to finish my session. I must say, I feel so much more confident to rush into the delivery room knowing the hospital staff won't need to use a razor on my lady parts anymore. I wouldn't want to worry about ingrown hair while recovering and taking care of a newborn!

With these cute pillow talkers, your uncertainties will diminish the moment you enter the room. 

I got the Strip Mama package — a special promotion of three brazilian sessions for pregnant women. Or you may also want to try one session of Mulled Wine Wax or any of their wax services first. 

STRIP currently has three locations in the Philippines, including Serendra, Greenbelt 5 and Mega Fashion Hall. For more information, you may visit their website.
