5 Reasons Why I Highly Recommend Beauty MNL

Thursday, October 01, 2015

     Shopping online is one of the most accessible form of shopping these days as almost everyone is now online. Admit it or not, we are all busy. Even though we have time to drop by our favorite malls and department stores, there are times that we only shop for every day essentials. For beauty aficionado like me who live North of the metro, I find it hard to shop some mid and high end brands that I've been using or would love to try. Because of this dilemma, I've found two solutions to my problem: travel all the way from North to South just to go to the nearest mall carrying the brands I'm looking or find an online shop that carries the brand. NARS and Davines are two brands that's on my beauty wish list and I don't have immediate access to the stores that carries both.

     Fortunately, I've stumbled upon BeautyMNL. It's one of the up-and-coming beauty sites in the country. A major part of BeautyMNL is its Shop, where you can buy various skin care and beauty products and have it delivered to your doorstep within 24 hours. Sounds a truly promising shopping site for all our beauty and skin care needs. I visited the site, browsed their shop, and enjoyed my shopping experience. I was in skin care, makeup, and everything-cosmetics heaven! Scroll down to see what's inside my Beauty MNL haul below :)

What is Beauty MNL?
   
     Beauty MNL is an online shop for the best skin care, makeup, tools and other beauty related stuff. It's a one-stop-shop that I highly recommend because they want you to feel your most beautiful. Every. Single. Day. Here are other reasons why in your next beauty shopping online, the best destination is Beauty MNL.com

1. They have more than 300 brands and counting. There are hard-to-find brands that you can only score at Beauty MNL. Yes, there are other online shops who can offer those but sometimes the question is authenticity. With Beauty MNL, you are sure that you're getting the real product in a very reasonable price.

3. Learn from the gurus. Hello, Liz Lanuzo of The Project Vanity :) Read their stories, get inspiration from their experiences and learn from their beauty advice. So while doing this, you can now assess what products you'll buy at Beauty MNL. It's like having a virtual assistant because they are giving recommendations so you don't need to worry about an impulse buy online.

4. The prices are affordable and reasonable. Shopping at their website is a breeze. No complicated tasks to do while shopping. Just pick a product and place them in your cart. They offer discounted prices too. As for the payment, they offer different modes that are so convenient for online shoppers. Ask me about the shipping? THE FASTEST I've experienced so far! I ordered my items around 10 p.m. and boy they arrived the next day before afternoon. The packaging is simple, with a delivery receipt that's itemized and very easy to understand. For Metro Manila addresses, expect delivery within 24 hours on weekdays (and Monday delivery for weekend orders). Meanwhile, it will take 3-5 working days for the rest of the country.

     Now let's go to my simple haul. These are the products on my wish list that I found in Beauty MNL. I considered three items in my haul not easily accessible so yeah, I can say I found what I need under one roof. I will just say a little information about my haul and will just give full details on my product reviews.

     I've been lusting over NARS cosmetics for more than five years now. When I saw NARS Schiap swatches from beauty bloggers all over the world, I said to myself that I will buy a tube in the future. My dream came true! I wasn't able to buy the shade that I'm lemming but I found another love in NARS Audacious Lipstick in Michiyo :)

     Second that I've been dreaming of all these years is NARS Blush in Orgasm. I saw this blush shade from the makeup kit of celebrities like Lucy Torres. I fell in love with the shade years ago and I said to myself that I will save up to buy a pan in the future. Now, I already have this. Thanks to Beauty MNL :)

     The following beauty products you'll see below are the products that I dubbed as not easily accessible. I can't say it's hard to find because there are online shops who also sell these brands BUT the only problem I always encounter is it's either the shade is out of stock, the product hasn't arrived yet or simply it available in selected shops. First is Naturactor Cover Face Foundation. This shade is always OOS or hard to find, good thing Beauty MNL offers a wide selection of shades. So when I saw the shade 130, I immediately placed it in my shopping cart.

     Another product that I can't find in stores, malls and local online shops is Davines Oi Oil. This is my favorite high-end hair product. When I emptied one bottle, I had a hard time finding a new one as I need to look for selected salons carrying the brand. It took me months to restock on this but to no avail. The only answer is Beauty MNL. I bought a new bottle that will last me a long time!

     And lastly, a new lip balm from Shiseido. I'm not sure if this is available in Shiseido counters. I picked this because I'm running out of lip balm the time I'm shopping at Beauty MNL. Out of curiosity, I bought one. Well, it's something new for me and since the brand is Shiseido no need for me to ask why.

David's Salon x Honda Biker Beauty Event

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

    Last Friday, I was invited to experience an afternoon of pampering sesh by David's Salon and Honda Philippines Inc.  The Biker Beauty: David's Salon x Honda Pampering Day was a collaboration by two of the country's best in transportation and salon industry. David's Salon is the default slash go-to salon of my family. We made frequent trips to their SM City Fairview branch for our much needed hair cut. My sister also had her hair rebonded there once.

     So when I received a short notice invite, I got so excited and asked the hubby to allow me to attend the event. He's persistent because we have agreed upon that no more events for the rest of that week. Since I also need a new hair color because the color of my roots were so noticeable already, I insisted him that I want to try the salon's hair coloring service. I'm so happy that I never doubted David's Salon's hair color service because in our experience with their hair cut, it's always a thumbs up!

Product Review: Davines Nounou Pak Nourishing Repairing Mask

Friday, January 30, 2015

     Having color-treated hair is not easy at all. Once the roots start to show, I'm getting conscious because of the uneven color. Aside from this dilemma, I also consider the texture and the state of my hair strands after a month of hair dye application. Color-treated hair are considered 'abused' hair because most of the health-stripping nutrients are found in these chemicals. The more we color our hair, the more it is susceptible to damages like breakage, split-ends, coarseness, dryness and stiffness. Other kinds of after coloring effects may include scalp irritation and hair fall. 

     I've been sporting color-treated hair for the longest time now. It's been 4 years and sometimes I feel 'naked' when the roots start to show.  My last hair color (Balayage Ombre by Azta Urban Salon) and hair treatment (Oi Oil) were from Davines. Their products are specifically crafted from nature to meet your hair's every need and based from my experience, my hair is still in good shape after the last hair color and treatment I've had. Anyhoo, Davines gave me one of their best-selling hair treatment as a gift last Christmas. I'm so excited to use the product because I've read positive reviews about this hair mask. So without further ado, here's my honest to goodness review of Davines Nounou Pak. The name may sound funny but it's serious in nourishing my hair from roots to tips!

Absolute Beauty Pamper Day at Davines Oi Oil Launch

Thursday, November 13, 2014

     When it comes to hair treatment, I always make sure that the product/s applied to my hair during the process will make my color-treated hair shinier, smooth and healthy looking. I can say that my hair had been through a lot of chemical treatments in the past. The abuse from hair coloring, hair styling tools and the simple combing and drying made my hair prone to dryness, dullness and breakage. Regular hair treatment products made my hair beautiful for only a short span of time that's why I need to invest in a revolutionary product that will give my locks not only in the external aspect of my hair strand needs (like shine, softness and color vibrancy) but also the restoring of internal structure to prevent ageing and breakage.

    A few weeks ago, I received an exclusive invitation from Davines Philippines- Davines Absolute Beauty Pamper Day. This event is for the launching of their latest hair care line Davines Oi Oil. I was intrigued because of the word "oil" and the claim. "worldwide cult favorite of international beauty editors and hair specialists. If you're a frequent visitor of this blog, I presume you've seen that I just had my Balyage Ombre hair color and my hair had been bleached in the process to achieve the Ombre style I chose. I said to myself that I must see and try that Davines Oi Oil because the product's claim sounds enticing, right? So without further ado, here's the feature of Davines Oi Oil and see the highlights of the event. Click CONTINUE READING and smile!
