     Mothers are simply extraordinary. We have multiple roles at home, at work, and other tasks in between. We have lots of energy, right?! But sometimes you may ask, from where do we really get all the strength and energy every day. Sometimes we forgot that being busy takes a toll on our emotional and mental wellness.⁣
     I remember that it's more challenging when I was breastfeeding my son. It lasted only for a month because I can’t produce enough breastmilk to feed my baby. I was frustrated and disappointed during that time. My mother told me that there are ways to enhance the supply of breast milk and one of them is by taking a moringa supplement.⁣ Years ago, only a few brands are available in the market and we are not sure if those non-organic sources came from pure ingredients. Fast forward today, I’m glad to know that there’s a European Union certified organic moringa from Sekaya.⁣ Know more about this brand after the jump!

Sunday, January 12, 2014

     Are you afraid of using oils on your face and body? I guess the answer would be yes and no. We are all afraid of bad oils inside our system because we all know that fats and cholesterol can cause serious illnesses that may lead to death. But fret not because our topic today is about beauty oils :) It's not fatal and it does only good for our skin. Have you tried using beauty oils in your face and body? If yes, I'm sure you've encountered not only one but more than two kinds of beauty oils in the market today. I'm not new to oils because I've tried more than three so far- sunflower, emu and argan oil. From my experience, these three oils are very effective in addressing certain skin and hair problems that's why I'm very excited to try other kinds of beauty oils because I believe that it can make wonders not only for a certain part of the body but from head to toe!

     Today, let me introduce you to another miracle oil in a bottle. The Moringa-O2 Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil. This product contains not only one beautifying oil but three oils that can heal and prevent skin problems- moringa, olive, and sunflower oil! We all know that moringa/malunggay oil has a lot of skincare benefits, add olive and sunflower oil that's also known to aid skin ailments with regular use.

     If you're still skeptical in using beautifying oils in your skin and body here's an excerpt from Ashton Kaidi, MD, co-founder of Marula: The Leakey Collection. "Oils are essential to your skin’s health because they keep your outer protective layer of skin cells together, making you look younger while protecting against future damage,”

     So without further ado, here's my honest to goodness review of the product. I'm also proud to tell you that I let my sister use this oil as a treatment for hair fall and she swears that it's effective after three consecutive use. As for my observations, click CONTINUE READING to find out!

Moringa-O² Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil is a rare blend of oils from moringa (malunggay), olive and omega (sunflower) oils. These three powerful oils are very rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. They are natural cleansers, have high emollient properties and are all naturally antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Together, they cover a wide spectrum of benefits rooted in nature providing a healthier, gentler, and more skin-hair-scalp-compatible from babies to more mature individuals.

Product Review: Beauty and Bright Facial and Body Lightening Moringa Soap

Monday, April 01, 2013

     Hello dearies! Happy Easter to everyone :) Today I'm going to share my thoughts on Beauty and Bright Facial and Body Lightening Moringa soap. I know this review took almost 2 months but I'm confident and happy to share it to you because it's not only me who used the soap religiously. I convinced my husband to try soap because I noticed his left arm has uneven skin tone because of driving without any protection around 10 a.m. everyday. He's not using sunblock or any kind of clothing to protect his skin. Before I decided to use this soap, he's already using it for more than 2 weeks. I'm very impressed because I really saw the improvement and told him his arm was getting lighter everyday. If I can only post his before and now photos, I will but his very shy and didn't want to take part in my blog post. I hope it's okay for you, his a very private person and I understand his reasons for that. Anyhoo, I noticed some changes on the intensity of dark mosquito bites on my legs after 3 weeks of using the soap religiously. I also have a blister on my right ankle that's very dark and now it looks soft and a bit lightened. 

     So will not blabber too much and let me share my honest to goodness review of Beauty and Bright  Facial and Body Lightening Moringa Soap. If you're a bit skeptical on Beauty and Bright, you can also view another review of their Skin Lightening and Anti-Aging Serum bar that I love to bits! 
    Your skin has to endure daily stress caused by your busy schedule, pollution and unhealthy habits. relieve your skin with Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap. The moment you apply the soap to your wet skin, you will feel the relaxation coming from the essential oils and beautifying extracts.

What I like:
  • It's organic!
  • The price- it's affordable for 100php + that will not melt even if it's soft and took almost two months to finish.
  • It's amazing how it can withstand the weather. It's summer and the heat is insane. There's no sign of melting or changes in size and shape. 
  • The scent- it's minty, love the smell of this soap because everytime I use it I feel very relaxed.
  • Produces a thick and creamy lather that applies very smooth on skin.
  • My skin feels soft and squeaky clean after every wash. There's a tight feeling on my face but not too tight. 
  • I can see a glow on my face and smaller pores when I looked in the mirror.
  • Exfoliates well.
  • Contains 7 LIGHTENING/BEAUTIFYING agents in 1 bar. 
  • Doesn't made my skin dry after bath. If you're a long time user of whitening soaps, natural, organic or not you'll notice there's a bit of drying after use.
  • Made some dark spots and blemishes caused by pimples appear lighter after a month of everyday use. 
  • The packaging is very neat and simple. The box is loaded with information. Everything you need to know about the soap is printed on the box. 
  • Complete batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the box.
  • Did I mention it's affordable? I'll just make it cheap- after a month of using the soap on my face and body, there's an approximate of 1/3 bar left on my soap dish. 
What I don't like:
  • None!
Will I repurchase? YES, definitely!

     I give this soap a 4.75/5 rating. If you ask me why not 5/5, I have to be honest that I'm not a fan of soaps that has cooling sensation. The minty feel is a plus for now because it's summer but if I'm going to use this during cold months, methinks will not let the lather stay on my skin for 5 minutes. But nonetheless, this soap performs great and same as the Beauty and Bright Skin Lightening and Anti-Agin Serum Bar. You can use the soap as is, no need to cut into half. Don't worry, it's very soft to touch but it will not melt unlike other organic soaps that I've tried. I highly recommend this specially now the heat is insane. If you want to lighten your skin and relax while taking a bath at the same time, I highly recommend this soap. Le hubby loves it too, it's the first time he asked me where to buy this kind of soap :)

     What's your current skin lightening soap? Any thoughts on Beauty and Bright? Thanks guys!

Good Times!~
