Watsons Kiss Aging Goodbye Campaign Launch

Friday, August 12, 2016

     Aging is inevitable, but signs can be reversible because of different skin care products that we have today. In search for the fountain of youth, women ages 30 years old and above resort to anti-aging products to pro-long the effects of aging in the skin. If you're into anti-aging, I presume that you are using creams, serums, and even supplements that diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and pigmentation. 

     Did you know that 20 is the new 30? Yes, you read that right. With all the stress and bad habits that come with our hectic, modern lives, women are aging faster than ever before. And the signs- both internal and external, visible and invisible, start to manifest as early as your 20s.  I was shocked when I heard this during Watsons Kiss Aging Goodbye campaign. Does that mean  I'm already late in terms of when to incorporate anti-aging products in my skin care regimen? Sharing some insights on anti-aging and highlights of the event below :)
Watsons Kiss Aging Goodbye Campaign Launch
     Last August 4, 2016, Watsons launched their Kiss Aging Goodbye event at Watsons Podium Mall with Patty Laurel as their host. Watsons is helping thousands of women to Kiss Aging Goodbye in its latest anti-aging campaign. During the event, we busted the myths about anti-aging and learned more on the facts why it is important to invest on skin care products that target aging.

     Watsons Marketing Director, Ms. Viki Encarnacion, explains, “The Kiss Aging Goodbye campaign is what Watsons is all about. It’s an educational effort with a two-pronged approach, teaching our customers how to prevent the negative effects of aging by taking care of themselves inside and out. We are literally helping people ‘Look good. Feel great.’ And it’s a wonderful thing.” Here’s how the two-pronged approach works.

     Watsons offers different anti-aging skin care products from cheap, cost-effective and high-end ones. Of course these products range from creams, serums, lotions, and supplements. Here are the products that I've spotted inside the store and are available in leading Watsons stores nationwide:

1. Topicals, creams, lotions, serums

  • To help you kiss those wrinkles goodbye, try L’Oreal Dermo Expertise Revitalift Range—a skin care solution inspired by laser, that promises younger looking skin in 4 weeks! 
  • Or bring back your baby skin with Collagen by Watsons Intensive Nourishing Facial Mask, enriched with Collagen and Vitamin E to repair dryness and enhance skin’s elasticity.

2. Anti-aging supplements

  • A lot of the signs of aging we see on the outside is caused by the body breaking down on the inside. 
  • Calcium deficiency and lack of collagen are two common culprits. 
  • To help prevent a haggard look, you should give yourself the added nutrition you need in the form of food supplements and ingestible beauty aids. 
  • One of Watsons’ favorites is the iVi Collagen Ready-To-Drink, with 10,000 mg of Collagen that helps smoothen fine lines, and lighten dark spots for that forever-young glow.

Here are some tips from the experts and from yours truly:

1. If you want to keep your beauty longer, keep your beauty bases covered from nutrition to skincare, inside and out. 
2. You’re never too young to start looking old. Start preventive maintenance in your early 20s. If that ship has sailed, start as early as now. 
3. Always drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. Hydration is the key to maintain skin elasticity and moisture thus preventing it from dryness.
4. Use sunblock and sunscreen everyday. Re-apply every 4 hours. Bring umbrella, wear shades, to protect you from the damaging rays of the sun. Avoid sun exposure in the afternoon where the UVA/UVB rays are at its peak.
5. Stop smoking! Drink moderately. Eat healthy and exercise. 
6. Start your anti-aging regimen by investing on products that will help lessen or diminish wrinkles, fine lines, crow's feet, sagging skin, and hyper pigmentation. You can score anti-aging products at Watsons Stores nationwide.
7. Start hoarding anti-aging products now because Watsons is having a great sale on anti-aging products until September 21, 2016.

Product Review: Japonesa Face and Body Bar Soap

Monday, October 26, 2015

     Hi dearies! I'm excited to reveal the latest whitening soap that I'm using as of the moment. I've been using this face and body bar for more than a month now. For my long time readers, you know me already when it comes to product reviews. I make sure that I use a whitening product for at least three to four weeks before sharing my experience. For the nth time, I have fair skin but it's uneven and I guess lacks nutrition. Yes, using whitening products makes the skin "oh so good" to look at but the question "is your white skin healthy?" will arise.

     With this realization, I think I've stripped off some nutrients present on my skin because some of the whitening soap that I've used before will just whiten my skin and that's the end. What if there's a soap that will help maintain or achieve fair, bright, young skin and healthy at the same time. We need to nourish our skin and that nourishment is something Japonesa Face and Body Bar can offer. This face and body bar is a SKIN FOOD! Intrigued? See the ingredients below and learn more why I highly recommended this promising product. Something that will be a mainstay in my bath essentials :)
Product Review: Japonesa Face and Body Bar Soap
What is Japonesa Face and Body BarJaponesa is a unique blend of:

  • LACTOFERRIN that heals, repairs and regenerates the skin.
  • GLUTATHIONE that provides pinkish and flawless complexion.
  • COLLAGEN that makes the skin smooth and young looking.
  • PROBIOTIC is an active ingredient which nourishes, exfoliates naturally and adds nutrients to our skin.
  • ST. JOHN'S WORT an anti-inflammatory and protection for sensitive skin.
  • OLIVE OIL provides extra protection and moisture in our skin.
  • GLYCERIN helps improve the texture of the skin.
  • COCONUT OIL gives the soap a creamy and more lather.
  • SWEET VANILLA a mild scent infused to enhanced relaxing mood when the soap touches your skin.
Product Review: Japonesa Face and Body Bar Soap
  • Japonesa bar soap is a Japanese soap that has different benefits from head to toe. 
  • It is a SKIN FOOD- it nourishes the skin to help remove impurities and infused the outer later of the skin with probiotics and lactoferrin. Can I say it's like a yakult for the skin!
  • It is a whitening and anti-aging soap. 
  • It can be used as shampoo for hair and scalp care, and as feminine wash.
  • It has ingredients that's a first in organic whitening soap. 

Product Review: Japonesa Face and Body Bar Soap
     After more than a month of using this creamy face and body bar religiously, I'm impressed with the results. I decided to stop using other skin care products related to whitening like whitening lotion and cream. I can attest to the effectiveness of this creamy bar because in a span of thirty days, my skin maintained its color, looks healthier than before and there's a pinkish undertone when I'm outside the house. At first I though I'm getting dark but my sisters told me that I'm still fair and there's a certain brightness.

Product Review: Japonesa Face and Body Bar Soap
The soap is wrapped in a special Japanese paper. You can see the engraved brand name and logo of the soap once you open the wrapper.

What I like:

  • It's made of organic ingredients.
  • Japonesa Face and Body Bar is infused with lactoferrin and probiotics, first in the organic whitening soap department. 
  • It's a lightening, anti-aging face and body bar that's also great for sensitive skin.
  • The scent- smells so DIVINE! It's so luxurious, first time to try a soap that smells like vanilla. 
  • The packaging is attractive and has a luxurious feel because of the engraved logo.
  • Aside from the box packaging, the soap inside the box is wrapped in Japanese paper.
  • The soap produces a very rich creamy lather.
  • I don't need to worry if I left the soap in my soap dish despite the hot weather. Even if this is hand made, no signs of melting happened. I was able to use the bar until the very last shape. It's amazing how it can withstand the weather.
  • The price- if I'll do the math it's affordable as one bar will really last more than a month with daily use.  
  • It's multi-purpose- can be used from head to toe. Face and body bar, shampoo for hair and scalp, and feminine wash too.
  • My skin feels soft and velvety smooth after every wash. 
  • It maintained my skin tone despite the hot weather.
  • Made my skin glowing and bright.
  • Exfoliates really well! I can see dead skin big time every time I scrub my body.
  • Japonesa Face and Body Bar is available in two sizes: 120 g and 70 g. I can say that the later is great for travelling. No need to bring bulky soap with you when you go on a trip.
  • Made some dark spots and blemishes caused by pimples appear lighter after a month of everyday use. 
  • Though I'm not sure on the anti-aging effect, I noticed that my skin became supple. I thought I'm getting dark but there's this "namumula" (rosy/healthy tinge) on my skin.
  • Complete batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the box.

What I don't like:

  • Not easily accessible. It's available at UNIMART Greenhills and in their physical store only as of the moment.

Will I repurchase? YES, definitely! This soap is back-up worthy.

     I give this soap a 5/5 rating. Another organic soap that I'll include on my top list, another holy grail material as I'm very much impressed on the performance.  I have very sensitive skin that's prone to redness and irritation. I'm glad that no negative reactions arise on my skin from the very first use. I highly recommend this Japonesa Face and Body Bar if you like to have healthy-white and young skin.  Japonesa Face and Body Bar is proud to be an organic and all natural Pinoy brand! Made from high quality raw materials, not tested on animals (cruelty free) and made in the Philippines.

     I know that there are so many whitening and anti-aging soaps in the market today. Read the ingredients carefully and see what it can do to your skin. This is my honest opinion about the product. The ingredients in this soap are promising and I think the first to offer Lactoferrin and Probiotic in one bar. Would you like to  Japonesa Face and Body Bar a try?

Good Times!~

Product Review: Skin Beautanicals Organic Arbutin Soap with Argan Oil

Monday, January 19, 2015

     I've been suffering from dry and flaky skin for months now. It started last December because of the cold weather. I'm used to this condition and I'm sure that I'm not alone. The colder the weather, the drier the skin because the humidity level (moisture in the air) tends to be lower than the usual during cold months. So it's not an excuse to ditch the moisturizers even if you have normal skin/oily skin types during cold months cause your skin will be needing it too.

     Aside from creams and lotions that contain moisturizers, we also need to look for a soap or body wash that will help lock in moisture in our skin after taking a bath. Beauty oils are in the limelight of skin care nowadays. From rosehips-tea tree-grapeseed-olive-jojoba-sunflower-camellia-marula to argan oil, name it and I'm sure beauty gurus around the globe have tried a couple of them. Morrocan Argain Oil is the "liquid gold" for dry hair and dry skin. Skin Beautanicals by Jianne Skin Essentials sent me their Organic Arbutin Soap with Argan Oil to try and after using the soap for more than a month, I'm ready to share my thoughts about it.

Product Review: Natura Organics Himalayan Mud 21-in-1 Soap

Monday, July 21, 2014

     If my memory serves me right, three years ago I had a hatred feeling against a certain black soap. It's not the black bleaching bar that I've tried from one of the famous brand of organic skin care products in our country today. Yes, it's a face and body soap that left a terrible effect on my face. The thing that irks me most is that it's organic. I have high expectations on that soap because before I get hold of it, I've seen positive reviews on their website and some beauty blogs. I really never expected that the "good" would turn so bad as in so so bad in my case. 

    So to end a long story short, after that experience I veered away from that brand. If you're adventurous with soaps I'm sure you can guess what kind of soap I'm saying here. I will not mention the brand, past is past and I've buried that sad experience. But today, I want to share a good news  :) I never thought that my fear of using a black-colored soap with ingredients that I'm not familiar with will turn into a delight. I think I want to rejoice because I've tried a black soap that didn't burn my face (this was the terrible effect that I have mentioned above) and made my skin healthy looking. Excited to find out why I'm raving a black soap today? Click CONTINUE READING to see my thoughts on Natura Organics Himalayan Mud 21-in-1 Soap :)

Product Review: Be Organic Papaya Bearberry Soap

Friday, October 11, 2013

     Hello dearies! Have you joined my 2nd Year Anniversary Giveaway yet? If not join HERE! I’m very excited to share this review because it’s one of the organic brands in the market today that offers promising natural products for the hair, skin, face and body. I already reviewed one of their soap- The Papaya Kojic and I highly recommend this organic whitening soap for individuals with sensitive skin. If you missed the review just click HERE. Now I’m going to share my thoughts on another variant of soap from Be Organic Bath and Body, this time it’s their whitening and anti-aging soap- The Papaya Bearberry. Does one of the ingredients sound new to you? I guess you’ll answer yes. Actually the bearberry is not that new to me, I already tried another brand of soap with bearberry extract but it is combined with other fruit extracts too. This time it’s combined only with Papaya so the combination is new to me. What exactly is Bearberry extract?
Bearberry extract is made from the leaves of the bearberry plant. It is commonly used as an astringent in cosmetic preparations and skin care products. Astringents are cleansers that remove dirt and oil from the skin's pores. It is also used as a lightening agent to fade freckles or skin discoloration which may be caused by sun damage or hormonal conditions.
     And because I’m already 30 years old, I give more importance to anti-aging. I’m already fair to begin with so it’s less of importance for me to get fairer, just even skin tone will do. This variant of soap is another lemming from the brand because when I saw it at Sesou I told myself to buy it next time I'll visit the store. But to my surprise Ms. Cheryl of Be Organic Bath and Body send samples of their products. I'm one happy kid! The moment I received the package, I opened the soap and used it right away. Excited to know my experience about the soap? Here it is, my honest to goodness review of Be Organic Papaya Bearberry Soap
Be Organic Papaya Bearberry Soap
This handmade soap has the highest and purest ingredients that whiten and nourish skin. Contains papaya enzyme which reduces dark spots from acne, blackheads and pimples. Combined with Bearberry extract, one of the most powerful skin lighteners.
