My Personal Review:

Snapseed

Maxx Hotel simply created a memorable weekend for me and Fris. The staff were very nice. They attended all our needs on time. Cozy rooms. Foods served were sumptuous (not an ordinary meal), big serving (per order is good for two people with an affordable price) and my breakfast in bed was delivered by their chef. He wants to check personally how was the food he prepared.

The only problem I encountered was the view from my room which is on the second floor. View was not that good because of the neighborhood but the roof deck was lit because of the jacuzzi.

I highly recommend this hotel for a weekend staycation if you’re heading to Makati for some shopping or to chill. Your friends and family will surely be pampered.

Expertique 01

Aside from the formal launch of Palmolive Expertique in the Philippines, we also welcomed its brand ambassador, the first Filipina winner of Asia’s Next Top Model, Maureen Wroblewitz.

Women encounter different hair problems and most of them require professional care, so they would often go to salon to get expert results.

Emily Fong Mitchell, Marketing Director for Colgate-Palmolive Philippines underlines, “New Palmolive EXPERTIQUE  is a full hair care regimen inspired by and crafted with experts to deliver salon-beautiful hair from the comfort of one’s home. It offers a complete range of hair solutions for those struggling with dull, damaged, and frizz-prone or flyaway hair.”

The Palmolive EXPERTIQUE makes it possible for Filipino women to step out of their homes with salon-beautiful on a daily basis, giving them that added boost of confidence and making them more empowered to take charge of their goals, their achievements, and their beauty. 

New Palmolive EXPERTIQUE premium hair care range is available in all leading supermarkets nationwide and online (http://bit.ly/BUYPalmoliveExpertiqueTODAY).

Dark Spots No More With Pynocare?

IMG_4436

Dark spots has always been a common problem for women especially for Filipinas like us who often find ourselves under the sun and use harsh chemicals from cosmetics. Good thing there’s Pynocare – the first ever, safe and effective anti melasma capsule for skin pigmentation and capable in combating pigmentation, dark patches and uneven skin tone at its roots.

PRODUCT INFO

IMG_4432

What is Pynocare?

Pynocare is an OTC medicine for Melasma or dark spots, which is made by Mega Lifesciences, a renowned Thai pharmaceutical company. It is an anti melasma capsule  and dermatologist-tested proven to lighten dark spots or Melasma. It also has MSCC complex (Melasma Skin Clear Complexion) which is a patented combination of powerful antioxidants such as Procyanidin and Vitamins A, C and E that can lighten dark spots.

Recommended Dosage

Take one capsule twice daily after meals for two months. After two months, just take 1 capsule per day as maintenance Price and Availability: Price is PHP1,355/box and PHP 67.75 per capsule. It is available in Mercury Drugstores, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, South Drug, St. Joseph Pharmacy and all leading drugstores nationwide.

IMG_4441

Will I recommend this product?

I am still in the process of doing a review on this product since I just started taking it last week because to be honest I’m really afraid taking oral medicines without consulting my derma and there are tons of supplements around the market and sometimes it’s just hard to trust that product easily but upon reading the reviews of others online, I decided to try it on. After a week of trying Pynocare, I can’t still see my dark spots lighten but what I noticed, it moisturizes my skin resulting to better skin texture and smoothness.

Hopefully I will see better results because I believe that with Pynocare, dark spots are lightened from within.
