Achieving Healthy Skin With Cetaphil



Skincare is non-negotiable for me, I spend thousands of pesos testing and trying out different skincare brands just to help my dry, sensitive and sallow skin.

You've seen my journey, my beauty routine has always been an open book.  You've probably commented and DM'd me and I've told you so many times how investing and spending on good skincare products is the best investment you can give to yourself.

Does skincare products really have to be expensive for it to work on you?  Definitely NOT.

Through the years, I've tested various brands with different price range and one thing I learned is that your skin's bestfriend is not the most expensive products, instead, the skincare products that contain ingredients gentle to your skin is your best friend in helping you achieve that natural healthy and glowing skin!

I have really active lifestyle in a sense that I'm always out and about.  My daily routine consists of taking my son to and from school, go to the supermarket for groceries, go to meetings and events at various places in the Metro, do training on the side while I need to cook at home and help my son study!  You've seen that all on #AMWIGStories for sure!


In between the day, I have this habit of washing my face after coming home before bonding time with my son as he is such a sweet child who loves to hug, cuddle and kiss!  Aside from wanting my skin to be client-ready, I also make sure my skin is clean and ready for my son's hundreds hugs and kisses!

Yves Rocher "Gris Profound" Look



Who would've thought I can create an eyeshadow look from a brand that is known for Botanical ingredients?

Well, to see is to believe, the brand actually creates good eyeshadow palettes I am so confused why I left it sitting on my vanity for the longest time!  One day, I wanted to create a daytime smoky eye makeup look and I saw the Yves Rocher Quad Sumptuous Color Palette in Gris Profound, this palette consists of Black, Gray and White which is a perfect quad for smoky eye makeup.

By the way, they have other shades available, they have blues, browns and purples.

Cathy Doll Soft Brow Pencil & Spoon Brush Review



I am so in love with Cathy Doll's Skinny Eyebrow Pencil and I have been recommending them to my friends on and offline for a while now!  I finished a pen in less than a month and is currently using the second one --- yes, that's the ONLY downside, it is so skinny and wonderful I finished it so quickly!

I was surprised to see Cathy Doll getting into the brow game!  After the success of Skinny Eyebrow Pencil, they came up with another unique brow product.

Nail Art Tutorial: Sweet Fimo Nails (For Kids and Kids At Heart!)




Fimo nails started in the AMW household quite early!  It was year 2009 when I ordered online and had Mr. AMW manually cut them for me (Read FIMO CLAY HERE)

I've done several nail art designs featuring the Post Cut Fimo Clay here ---

And expect me to share more because, Girlstuff came up with pre-cut Fimo Polymer Clay and they are even cuter than ever!  So my nail art design is inspired by the cute clay and Kyle can't get enough of these!

Lustrous Lip & Cheek Tint Raw Review



Let's start by setting this straight : I have perpetually dry lips, the driest of all dry lips (I'm claiming that!) in the Beauty Blogging industry!  Because my lips chap and crack and bleed on some mornings whenever I yawn, let me know if you have the same I'll put you up on the top 3 list :P

When I chanced upon Nadine Lustre's Lustrous Lip & Cheek Tint, I have to test and use it right away because --- why not?  It's a collaboration with the country's top actress and for you to put your name to it, it must be good!

Unfortunately, not for this particular product --- don't get me wrong, I haven't tried ANY of the Nadine Lustre x BYS makeup so I'm just speaking on this particular product.

The color is beautiful on photos and I can actually achieve a fierce look with the shade RAW, but judging by the look on photo, you can see uneven patches on how the product clings on to my dear dry lips!  

But before that, I'm not stating this as a BAD product, it isn't --- if you have nice, hydrated lips!  Maybe, if you are into Korean gradient lips, this will also work because it does give a nice-looking stain!
