Something New: NEKKID products

More than 3 years ago, NEKKID Beauty was launched by good friend Sabs.  I shared my initial thoughts on their skincare products (read HERE)

My favorite from that line was the Creamy Body Scrub - I finished that tub in a month as I was addicted to the scent and the quality!

Fast forward to 2019, I got a message from Sabs telling me how excited she was with the new product offering.  I thought, maybe, more skincare and body products?  Upon receiving the box, I was surprised and giddy to learn that she included MORE!  

New product offering from Nekkid Beauty ---

  • Nekkid Beauty Big Hair Sea Salt Texturizing Spray
  • Nekkid Beauty Creamy Tomato Natural Soap (Php90.00)
  • Nekkid Beauty Skin Rescue Salve (Php390.00)
  • Nekkid Beauty Grapefruit scent (Php360.00)
  • Nekkid Beauty Pocket Perfrumes (Jo Malone Collection 2) (Php400.00)

I have already tried their fragrance line and aside from smelling great, it was a wonderful surprise to announce that they are long-wearing!  I actually apply some on key pressure points and it lasts the whole day!

I am also loving the Skin Rescue Salve which I use whenever I have my brows and upper lip waxed at Benefit, it just gives me a nice sensation and it does reduce redness big time!

I can't wait to try Big Hair Texturizing Spray as hairstyling is something I really love to do!  I'll report back to you some noted products to purchase soon!  Watch out for Nekkid Beauty in my small space!

Remington Air3D + Php1000 OFF PROMO CODE!

My love affair with hair started as early as gradeschool days!  During first grade summer, I insisted to join my mom in a salon and had my hair permed!  (Yes, I had minimal kulot at that age!)  I was such a good daughter my mom can't resist me!  *laugh* 

Comes highschool, the first hair straightening treatment was introduced in the Philippines and I actually went for that treatment with my bestfriend and ended up with unnatural STICK STRAIGHT hair!  

When I started earning my own, I invested on hairstyling tools - from blowdryer to curling iron, steamer, flat iron and a whole lot more!  I practice everything on my own head then decided to move up a notch and studied hairstyling.  

The rest was history --- ask me anything hair tools related, I will have my say!  

One of the few brands that I highly recommend includes - REMINGTON!  
Did you know that my mom and mom-in-law actually own a Remington hairdryer from the 80's pa and it's still working at present?

So back to my story, I knew about this brand way back and actually invested on my first 2-inch curling iron from the brand - I bring it with me on my makeup and hairstyling gigs and it gives me nothing but GOOD memories!  

So when the brand invited me for an intimate dinner for the launch of their newest styling tool - even on a weekend (Sunday pa!)  I knew I had to be there.

Remington Philippines introduced Remington AIR3D.

Our next generation of dryers is here, the AIR3D - with a new structure to hair drying and designed for ultimate styling, you won't have to worry too much about heat damage.
Engineered by a team of experts bringing together years of experience and research, the lightweight AIR3D is leading the way in performance.
AIR3D combines two key features needed for effective hair drying - a unique 3D airflow and temperatures that are ideal for achieving optimised styling results quickly.  
Depending on your preference, three styling attachments with 360 degrees in-use rotation allows for concentrated drying or a diffused flow to help create stunning curls.  All combining to  mean you can achieve a salon worthy blow dry without leaving your home.

"Ang Fresh mo naman!"
"Di naman halatang kulang ka sa tulog!"


I stick to my phrase, the right concealer can make you look FRESH and YOUNGER than your real age!  *laughs*

Check out how much concealer I apply!  And check out my 'excess baggage' on the other eye.

Glossier Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick Review

Good morning AMW Friends!
Shouting to the world how busy March was and I am NOT complaining!  Thank you Lord for keeping me busy each day doing the things I love to do so I am extremely grateful.

So, I shared unboxing stories on my Instagram account last month and one of the most requested review is the Glossier product.  I got 2 Glossier products and I am sharing my thoughts on the Glossier Generation Sheer Matte Lipstick in ZIP.

Price available upon request as they add shipping fee

Generation G is a new kind of lip color that gives the look and finish of just-blotted lipstick, without the blot. We’ve created a short list of the six most important shades, with dialed-down pigment loads for a casual look. They’re lipsticks that adapt to you, not the other way around, so they'll appear a bit different on everyone as your natural lip color shows through. The effect? Diffused, matte goodness—just swipe it on.

Tough Mama - that's us mommies!

I used to think my mama is so tough nothing can make her tired!  After turning into a mom myself, I realized my mom is not just tired (taking care 4 of us + 2 bedridden grandparents) - SHE WAS EXHAUSTED!

But because of her extreme love for the family, she is turning herself into a TOUGH MAMA because she wanted the best for us.

Up until today, I still call my mom to tell her I miss her, love her and appreciate her!  I know NOTHING CAN REPAY her unconditional love but its' the least I can do!  Mommy work is NO JOKE! 

So when I got an invite to attend a Tough Mama event, I knew I had to clear up my schedule because I want to meet fellow tough mommies and learn ways to make life easier!

I wish my mom has these means to make her life easier back then - aren't we lucky?

The event was held at Flossom Kitchen last February 19, I met a lot of cool mommas!  I had a great afternoon with loads of laughter!

It was hosted by Ms. Karen Kabuhat and Chef Jam Melchor was there to do a cooking demo!  I actually did his Pork Chop recipe and it was a huge success!
