AMW Reports + Contest: Nourishing Night Oil (NNO) Event --- Contest CLOSED!!!

**Winner picked via Fruit Machine. Congratulations to ----

Norissa Chavez!
I will email you for mailing information!

I got an invite to a small gathering last Tuesday for a light dinner, spa treatment at Blue Water Day Spa and get to know a product called Nourishing Night Oil (NNO). 

This event feels like shooting 3 birds in one stone!
  1. I'd love to try spa treatment at Blue Water Day Spa for quite some time but just didn't have the time!
  2. After reading product information on Nourishing Night Oil (NNO), I got intrigued and want to learn more on its advantages!
  3. Dinner - need I say more?  *laughs*
I'm just joking on number 3 but I'm serious in trying to learn more about NNO, its functions  and usage!

I arrived a bit worried when I saw how "busy" the parking space was but thank goodness the event organizers thought about it and have someone do valet parking! 

I thought I was a bit early to be arriving at 5:30pm when the event calls for 6:00pm time!  Look how ready everyone was and I got comfortable right away!

Food table! :)

And the reason for our existence in the said event *grins*

Both Shen and I were the early birds so we gave the skin analyzer machine a try before other people could overhear the condition of our skin! *shudders*

First, the skin around the inner arm area was tested

It was further explained that this area is the least exposed to the harsh environment.

Then the skin around my face was also tested! 

Here are the results!  (Don't judge me!  Let me explain!  *laughs*)

The right hand side of the photo shows the skin as seen by naked eye.  The left side is the "zoomed in" version.

As expected, the skin around my body are considered healthy BUT dry!  (Shown on first 2 photos on top).

On the other hand, the skin on my face is on the healthy side, I learned that night that my skin is a combination skin!  Oily on the t-zone and normal on the rest of my face!  (Ah, the skincare regimen must be working as I used to be super dry!).

P.S. I did not tell the lady my age and I asked what was the age of my skin, and guess what?  She said the condition of my skin states that I am 25 years old below!  (Hey! I did not invent that!  I just quoted her! *defensive mode*) hahaha

So yes, I'm a living proof that taking care of your skin as early as NOW will bear good results! :)

Since we were quite early for the event, we were able to chat with the super friendly, down-to-earth and funny host of the night Divine Lee.  She loved the skin analyzer so much she wants to buy one!

We talked a lot about beauty products and even shared laughs on how we love Japanese do their makeup!  She was also in Japan during those times I was in Tokyo!

If I may have to add, it was a relaxing venue at the Foot Spa Room of Blue Water Day Spa!

Here are the rest of the bloggers who attended the special event with me!

The event started as we were introduced to Mega Philippines Managing Director Mr. Rishi Pradhan.
Mr. Pradhan took us to the Mega Journey.  How Mega cares by ---
  • Building a thinking organization that also includes respect, freedom, truth and trust.
  • Providing Right Products with the right quality that is safe for human consumption.
  • Choosing developing countries in selling and marketing medicines for sustainable growth.
Mega is present in 21 countries which proves their stability!

To continue our learning experience about the star product for the night, NNO Brand Manager Ms. Maria Cristina Paloma further discussed to us information about the human skin, of course, different skin types will always be present in skin discussions and the participants were asked on their present skin condition! 

I can see different skin types in one room!  Definitely a nice bunch!

What is Nourishing Night Oil (NNO)?  Now I can help you understand after attending this event!
NNO is an all natural moisturizer that treats skin dryness due to loss of moisture.  

How about oily-skinned individuals?
Don't fret, we asked that question in an instant and we learned that NNO will never feel greasy on your skin and it works for ALL skin types as NNO resembles the natural skin oil, it acts like the natural oil in your skin making your skin supple and young-looking minus the oily feel!

We were even challenged to test our skin again after 2 weeks of usage! 

Did you know that?
  • NNO has the non-cosmetic combination of Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil. 
  • NNO never has greasy feel after application.
  • NNO comes in applicap to prevent oxidation and to retain its freshness.  It's also a big plus as you get to use the "exact" amount of product needed for your face and neck!  Or if you may, even dry parts of your body!
  • NNO is all natural.  Each capsule contains 4.70mg of Natural Vitamin E and 85.80 mg of Jojoba oil.
  • NNO is best applied at night as it is the best time for skin cells to regenerate.
  • NNO can be used together with your current skin care regimen.
As most of us were clueless on how application is done. We were shown on the how-tos via slide

and in person!  A live model was used to show application and everyone can't help but go up and try out the product to feel if it's greasy or not!  I guess in our minds...we were all thinking: "Come on!  It's OIL, how could it be NOT greasy?" (I'm not sure about the rest but I sure did think that way!)

Here's the model several minutes after application, we touched her face and her skin, indeed, is not oily and she looks refreshed!

Nourishing Night Oil (NNO) in box of 30s soft gel applicaps costs Php450.00 (approx $10.50)  available at Mercury Drug Store and South Star drugstores.
Feel free to add NNO Philippines on Facebook to get to know more about the company and the products they offer!  (P.S. They are also the maker of Gloww which I gave away last year!)

    Why do you need NNO in your life?

    I need it in my life because I want to have healthy skin. I want to establish my own skin care regimen that will keep me looking young like you. Right now, I am into moisturizers. I want to try NNO and see if it's worth it. Besides, who wouldn't want an all-natural product? ^__^

  18. I need NNO because I have been stressed with work these past few days and I need something to make my skin fresh and smooth. Plus, this is perfect for me if it is non-greasy :)

    I need NNO in my life because I'm still looking for my HG night regimen and I'm the kind of person who is so lazy to put different creams and layer them. Wouldn't hurt to try NNO.
