My Hair's Daily Defense

September 7, 2017
Despite being challenging and difficult, there's a few things I liked about my pregnancy and wish I have kept. For one, my skin was luminous and blemish-free! I also had luscious shiny hair that I barely needed to manage. That was, until last month when my hair began falling. It's not as bad as some women, but still!

So I've contacted my resident hairstylist to give my hair the much needed treatment it needs and she suggested that I get myself hairstyling products that are sulfate-free. I'm not new to this as I also used sulfate-free shampoos during the time when brazilian blowdry was all the hype. For those new to this, you need to use sulfate-free products to optimize the effect of your treatments or else you'll shorten the lifespan of the effect. 

Fortunately, Healthy Innovation Distribution, a family owned business of healthcare professionals sent me a couple of their personal care products. And the first I've tried is their Daily Defense hair care line.

I was glad to receive the Keratin variant as it's what I've always eyed on. Here's what I've got to say:

Daily Defense Shampoo & Conditioner | P139.75 for 16oz

After seven days of use, my hair felt thicker in texture and I had less hair fall. My hair also was easier to manage, and felt less coarse.

Daily Defense 3 Minute Conditioning Treatment | P139.75 for 5oz

Upon first use, my hair was tangle-free, as if all the damage was healed in one use. Of course, the effect would be maintained with regular use of 2-3x a week. I highly recommend this to those who have color-treated hair.

For the price points, the results are impressive and comparable to what you'd get from salon quality brands. Daily Defense may just be the most affordable sulfate-free haircare line I've come across with. 

Daily Defense is available in all leading groceries and department stores nationwide.

Review: BeauuGreen Eye Patch

July 7, 2017
Oh, sleep, how I missed you! And what I miss equally is my bright eyes sans eyebags and undereye circles! Thanks to BeauuGreen Hydrogel Eye Patch, I have a shot to getting rid of these bags and circles.

BeauuGreen is a Korean brand specializing in skincare masks and eye patches. They are known for their Hydrogel Eye Patches that are enriched with essences that penetrate deep inside the skin to supply nutrients to the sensitive eye rims. It's said to restore hydration and elasticity.

 I've got to try their Sea Cucumber & Black Hydrogel Eyepatch variant that is said to be firming. The other two variants are Coral & Aqua (hydrating) and Collagen & Gold (anti-wrinkle). There are a couple of eye patches in the pot soaked in nourishing essence that provides moisturizing and calming effects to the skin around the eyes. As this eye patch provides superior skin adhesion, it allowed me to be productive even while wearing it. 

How to use:
1. After washing face, tone the skin around eyes up with a toner. 
2. Take the patch out of the pot using a spoon and apply the eye patch to desired area of your face. 
3. Leave on for 20~30 minutes and let remaining essence absorb into the skin with gentle patting. 

I can't speak much about the moisturizing effect of this patch but I definitely instantly felt some calming effect on my eye area. I also saw not much of a difference on my eye bags. A couple more of wearing these and it might just do the job.

BeauuGreen Eye Patch can be purchased at BSKOS Philippines Facebook page at P1,680.00.
