Benefit in Salad Box!

I honestly don't splurge that much on makeup, unless it's a really good product and it's worth every peso that could seal the real deal! Benefit is on the edge of a high-end makeup brand here in the Philippines because hey who want's to buy a Php 1000 worth of primer and the likes? *laugh*
BUT THEN, we always ended up buying our Hoola Dew, Benetint and yuuup their POREfessional primer. Who can blame us, their products are just so good. Benefit is known for their cute packaging and the quality of their makeups as well!

If you've been thinking to buy some Benefit products, still undecided to splurge that much and wants to try them first before purchasing the full sized products. Then Saladbox got you covered! I got the SET B of their #BetterTogether box that comes with sample sizes of They're Real Mascara, Goof Proof Brow pencil, They're Real Double Lip, The POREfessional (Matte Rescue) and The POREfessional Pore Minimizing Makeup!

They're Real Mascara
They're so good that you won't be needing falsies anymore.
The wand is perfect to brush off not let your eyelashes clump.

Goof Proof Brow Pencil
The least that I liked in the box.
It's quite hard to apply because it is really small.

They'Re Real Double Lip
This is genius! You don't need a lip liner for this!
It accentuate your lip and make it more defined.

The POREfessional Matte Rescue
I've been using this for months and it's so perfect.
It mattifies your skin but the foundation will glide
smoothly on your face as you apply it.

The POREfessional Pore Minimizing Makeup
Perfect as a primer or you can wear it alone
and just add some powder for an instant lift on
your no makeup makeup look.

I've always been a fan of Benefit! 
And all I have to say is it's really worth the splurge at Saladbox for all of these items! ;)

Cream-O Flix Fest gathers CreamOholics for a fun outdoor movie marathon!

CreamOholics enjoyed a unique bonding experience as Cream-O hosted an afternoon of 
outdoor movie watching and cookie munching with the Cream-O Flix Fest, held recently at the Quezon City Memorial Circle.

Family movie marathon
The Cream-O Flix Fest kept everyone entertained throughout the exciting day with three movies in a row. Kids and kids-at-heart watched “Minions” while teens sang their heart out with “Pitch Perfect 1.” Capping-off Cream-O’s first-ever outdoor movie marathon event was the well-loved romantic-comedy “50 First Dates.”
More than watching the family-oriented flicks, CreamOholics indulged in their favorite Cream-O cookies and even made their own personalized cookies in the “Cream-Ofied Creations” booth.

Personalize your Cream-O
The Cream-Ofied Creations booth let Creamoholics jazz-up their well-loved cookies in four easy steps: choose, dip, sprinkle and drizzle. First, they chose their favorite Cream-O variant (Vanilla, Choco Fudge, Deluxe, Crinkles, Chocolate Chip, Cookies ‘n Cream and Choco ‘n Berries) and dipped it in rich chocolate (milk, dark or white), peanut butter or whipped cream. They added extra color, texture and flavor to their creations with a wide variety of toppings, and even drizzled on some delicious chocolate, caramel or strawberry syrup.

Aside from the flicks, guests participated in other fun activities, such as the “Unlock the Popcorn Stash” and “Guess the Movie” trivia game. They also captured moments and personalized their images through the “I Love Cream-O” photo booth. Furthering the excitement were live acoustic band performances and raffle draws, where lucky winners won Fujifilm Instax mini cameras and Robinsons gift certificates.

PONDS: Change Is Beautiful

Pond’s Launches New & Improved Formulas For The Modern Pinay

Change Is Beautiful

Are you ready for a beautiful change? If you think about your skincare rituals from 5 to 10 years ago, the basics were able to keep your skin clear and well-hydrated. But if you take a closer look at our environment now and analyze what our skin faces each day—like pollution, harsher UV rays, and stress—you’ll realize that these basics are no longer enough. Today’s Filipina is in need of modern-day skincare solutions that can keep up with her ever-evolving skin needs and on-the-go lifestyle. "This is why the Pond’s Institute’s recent innovations revolved around developing and improving our formulas," says Apples Aberin, Unilever Head of PR. "Pond’s wants to evolve with the modern-day Filipina. We want to show her that there is no need to be afraid of the ever-changing environment, because Pond’s is rising up to the challenge and changing with the times."

Everything Beautiful Begins With Change

With the NEW Pond’s formulations, the power to change your skin into something beautiful is always in your hands. The secret lies in looking for the ingredients and technology that your complexion needs at each stage of your life. Take a look at the NEW and improved Pond’s Acne Clear, Pond’s White Beauty, and Pond’s Age Miracle ranges, especially formulated for today’s modern woman.

For The Blooming Teen

She’s stepping out into the world on her own, and of course, with her besties. The skin challenge? Pimples, oily skin, and stubborn blemishes caused by stress, hormones, and pollution makes her feel self-conscious.

Her Pond’s Solution: Pond’s Acne Clear
is clinically proven to clear acne in just three days. It contains the breakthrough Lock & Clear Technology, which is the first in the world to lock bacteria cells and clear it from the inside for beautiful, acne-clear skin. "Having clear skin helps me feel confident, so I always use the Pond’s Acne Clear Facial Wash and Acne Clear Leave-on Gel combo to keep pimples and oil away," shares new Pond’s girl Sofia Andres. "I love how it helps my breakouts clear up a lot faster, too."

For The Girlboss-In-Progress

Whether she’s climbing the corporate ladder or making waves as a successful millennial, this hardworking woman is eager to show the world what she’s got. She lives an on-the-go lifestyle and commutes constantly for work, leaving her skin vulnerable to the sun’s damaging rays and pollution. Her Pond’s Solution: Just 10 minutes under the sun can trigger the toughest skin problems. That’s why NEW Pond’s White Beauty uses the all-new, patented ingredient called Vitamin B3+, which works by lessening the production of melanin that causes skin darkening, and preventing the melanin from surfacing. "I noticed that I started getting dark spots from old acne marks and from being under the sun," reveals Pond’s girl Kathryn Bernardo. "To protect my skin, I started using Pond’s White Beauty since it has SPF that protects it on the outside, and Vitamin B3+ that whitens from the inside. Using it twice daily really helped me get a rosy, white glow."

For The Empowered Woman

Years of experience—including triumphs and failures—have allowed her to know who she is and what she wants. She’s found her stride and now she’s working on letting go of her anxiety and stress, so she can enjoy her time with the ones who matter. Her Pond’s Solution: NEW Pond’s Age Miracle helps reduce worry lines, wrinkles, skin sagging, and age spots. It has Retinol-C Complex that works 24 hours non-stop, helping to reduce wrinkles to give you a youthful glow. "As a new mom, I noticed that the late nights were starting to take a toll on my skin," shares Pond’s Brand Ambassador Toni Gonzaga. "I tried the new formula, and after just 7 days, I noticed that I look a lot fresher and I even got my glow back!"

Making Beautiful Changes With Pond’s

The All-New Pond’s seeks to inspire women and show them that the power to make change beautiful is in her hands. "They say that the most beautiful faces in the Philippines use Pond’s—and I’m proud to be one of them," shares new Pond’s brand ambassador, Joey Mead. "As women, it’s important that we strive to inspire and empower one another. We all have the strength and grace to transform the toughest changes into something beautiful."

At the forefront of skincare science and innovation since 1846, Pond’s continues to show why it is still a leader when it comes to providing superior solutions for cleansing, anti-aging, and lightening. And now, with the NEW and improved Pond’s Acne Clear, Pond’s White Beauty, and Pond’s Age Miracle ranges, the modern Filipina can feel confident knowing that she has what she needs to face the beautiful changes in her life with beautiful skin.

Are You an Open Road Hero? Join the Wrangler True Wanderer 2017!

Traveling has always been a right and a privilege. It's a right because hey, everyone is allowed to travel unless enforced by law and it is a privilege because not everyone can do it or let's say they are constricted with their budget. BUT!

Now on its third year, the True Wanderer competition will select 20 finalists to embark on a 3-day journey to finish four different challenges that will test their skills and wits as an Open Road Hero. Afterwards, the finalists will participate in a photo competition that will be divided into different themes per week. The photos are to be posted weekly on Wrangler’s Facebook page along with a story as to how travelling inspires their inner Open Road Hero.

One grand winner, chosen by a panel of judges including Wrangler ambassador Jericho Rosales, will win an all-expense-paid trip to Batanes for two, P100,000 worth of Wrangler gear, and the title of an Open Road Hero.

Adventurers who’d like to join must post on Facebook a travel photo captioned with your story of why you are an Open Road Hero and the hashtags #TrueWanderer and #Live2Wander.

Mossimo Brings Coachella To You!

"Our Spring/Summer 2017 collection is all about the celebration of fashion found in music festivals and in the lusciously cool beaches around the globe," tells Alex Bautista, Mossimo's VP for Product. At Mossimo, we reinforce the belief of following your personal fashion style, be it laid back, edgy or both. We celebrate individuality and we make sure that all the pieces and collections we offer are not only high quality, wearable, and work with and around your personal style, but are also on-trend, cool, and exciting."

For the first half of the collection, it's all about the "Coachella" vibe which revolves around relaxed, laid back pieces that are perfect for that almost-bohemian, Coachella-inspired look and lifestyle. Get inspired from the music festival looks and take your pick from this collection.

With a dynamic range of pieces and an interesting texture play on weaves and cotton knits, it is incredibly easy to cop the looks of the always-stylish who populate the crowded festival grounds. From sexy off-shoulder tops, comfortable yet trendy maxi-dresses, funky space dyed polo tops, and your favorite closet staple of denims, the collection, while never compromising quality and wearability, personifies the burst of colors that can only be found in festive music extravaganzas.

The second half of Mossimo's Spring/Summer 2017 collection is all about the island life, which is named "La Isla." Laid back, easy-breezy, and highly-reminiscent of the Caribbean scene and vibes, the collection focuses on tropical elements, the abundance of flora and fauna, and the romance found in dusky sunsets by the shore.

With a unique and striking color palette of sand and peach tones, combined with the light and deep blue hues of the sea, key pieces feature dip-dyed cotton shirts, one-shoulder ruffled tops, on-trend stripe and floral prints, and lightweight destructed denim items that will remind one of the enviously chill life beside the oceans.

Since it's almost summer and the scorching heat of Manila is always present, I took my personal twist on their collection. So here are the looks they I went for. Always remember that don't let the brand define you but rather, define the brand with your own style.

The new Spring/Summer 2017 collection will be available in all Mossimo stores nationwide. For more information on Mossimo and their latest collections, you may follow Mossimo on Facebook and on Instagram.
