The Sweetest Christmas Tree Lighting in Makati

     
     Whenever there's a Christmas tree lighting event. We always think about white and green Christmas trees with big blue balls and yellow Christmas lights. Didn't I imagine I’ll be able to see a giant pink Christmas tree with ginger bread, candy canes, cotton candies and other sweet treats that will give you a sugar rush feeling just by looking at it.

This year, the mall makes this holiday season more colorful and sweet.  From the entrance and hallways up to the al fresco area of the mall, pink Christmas decors reminiscent of those special candy treats for children deck the halls and serve as a feast for the eyes of shoppers and guests.

FAIR AND HONEST REVIEW: SHYN WHITENING SET

       I'm a fan of whitening products since 2007. I tried almost everything from soap to lotion to whitening capsules and injectables. When I stop injecting glutathione last March of 2016, I said to myself that I have to find a cheaper alternative to improve my skin complexion. After more than a year of searching, I found my new holy grail in whitening. 









      ShyN International Beauty Products offers a range of highly-effective skincare products that will make your everyday beauty routine more simplified for your busy schedule. They have this "3 easy steps to truly glowing skin." 
1. RADIATING SOAP (135g) - it deeply cleans pores for smoother and fresher skin
2. RADIATING TONER (60ml) - it nourishes and hydrates skin and prevents moisture loss.
3. RADIATING NIGHT CREAM AND SUNBLOCK (10g) - it promotes moisture retention and protects your face from the harmful sun rays and environmental  pollution. 

And the most awaited part of every product review is its PROS AND CONS. 
PRO'S 
If your budget is tight and you can't afford an expensive dermatological treatments, this whitening set is what you need in your life. The price is Php 850.00. You save more if you buy it in SET. 

I saw my face glowing after 3 days. But you have to use all the products to make it work. 

When given a chance to meet the owner of ShyN, I asked her why their products are fragrance free. She told me that the ingredients are very concentrated and has no fragrance chemicals. So if you have perfume intolerance, this product is meant for you. 

Its sunblock has SPF 50 and you can use it as makeup base as well. A friend of mine told me that she doesn't need to use makeup foundation after applying sunblock. Before, she needs to apply foundation on her face. Now, she's just using a face powder. 



The soap lasts long. We all know that other kojic soaps easily melt in the shower but this soap is different. It may have the same color like other kojic soap brands but this one doesn't easily melt. It can compete with ordinary soaps for longevity. 

Recommended for all skin types. But I'll recommend it more to people who have pimples and dark spots.

CONS 

I find the toner too strong for my skin. Since I don't have pimples, I guess it suits more for people who have pimps issue. I don't use it regularly. I'm using it also on my elbows and knees. 

The content of sunblock and night cream are just 10g each. Sunblock is very important to me so I use this everyday. I think it only lasts for 3 weeks. 

You can't buy this products at drug stores. You have to visit their website www.shynwhite.com or their FACEBOOK page to order. 


After  more than a month of using SHYN. 

Comment down below your questions and I'll be happy  to answer it.
Thanks for reading! :)

HOLY GRAIL ALERT: MAKE UP FOR EVER EXCESSIVE LASH MASCARA

Want to splurge into a mascara that won't clump, flake or even smudge? I recommend Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Arresting Volume Mascara. I bough mine at Makeupstoriesph on Instagram. It was a steal for me because she sold it for a low price since I got the 0.08 oz. When the parcel arrived, to my surprise I also got a lip mask and a sticker with my name on it as freebies. 




 The reseller told me that she bought it on Sephora USA website. The price for its full size (0.15 oz) is $25. You guys are now thinking that it's pretty expensive because you'll pay $25. In Philippine peso it's 1255.80 for a 15 oz. mascara. But I won't mind splurging if this mascara wouldn't end up smudging under my eyes by midday.



According to it's product info, this mascara can give your lashes an alluring volume and bold definition with its exclusive, small brush. Don't underestimate its small brush like what I did the first time I saw it. It's like a magic wand that can award you with a dramatic volume of lashes. It's because the brush was designed with hard and soft fibers that work together to create definition and great volume. Mascaras with larger brush can be messy if you're careless or in a hurry. I admit it. I'm such a mess everytime I apply my mascara. Small brush like this makes my mascara application easy as pie. Another star for this brand.



While applying it, I can see that it's easy to glide and unlike other mascaras that I used, my lashes remained separated and defined. It doesn't smudge even though I'm sweating under the sun. It dries up easily as well. What I love about it is it doesn't smell awful and my eyes don't feel irritated. I don't know if my eyes are just sensitive since I'm wearing contact lenses or it's just the formulas of other brands are too strong that gave my eyes an itchy burny feeling. The downside of this product is it can't do too much curling and lifting. You have to use an eyelash curler if you have straight lashes like mine. All in all it was good. I can give 4.5 out of 5 stars. Am I going to repurchase this again though it's quite a bit expensive? Definitely!

Why GSH is the Best Injectable Glutathione Brand?

              Filipinas now-a-days are getting addicted to skin whitening products. Before, they were just using soaps and lotions, until capsules came. However, some women wanted a faster result, so they’ve decided to undergo IV drip. So what is an IV drip to those who aren’t familiar? According to Medicine.net.com, intravenous drip (IV) is a device for administering a fluid drop-by-drop into a vein via an intravenous (IV) route. IV Drip was just for an artist before, but since there were cheap Glutathione injectables that were sold in the market, it became a hype.
              Since I was one of those women who wanted to have a fairer skin complexion, I’ve decided to make a blog and help my fellow women in choosing the best product for Gluta drip.

Glutax 5gs

            Glutax are popularly known in the market because of its cheap price. Before I used this product, I already had 5 session of gluta drip with 1200mg glutathione content from a famous hospital because my auntie was one of the doctors there. My consultation is free but the session is expensive though I have 50% discount. So I’ve decided to contact a friend of mine who knows someone that can do a gluta drip for an affordable price. The seller  gave me a package worth 6,500 for 12 sessions of Glutax 5gs.  I was so surprised because the content is 5000mg and I got it for a very cheap price. After 8 sessions of using Glutax 5gs, I saw minimal result. I was expecting a better and faster result since the content is 5,000mg. I asked the seller why the result isn’t noticeable compared to the 5 sessions that I had before.  So I’ve decided to conduct a background check regarding this product and most of the blog posts tell that it is fake. So I did more research and according to Pipac (Philippine Institute of Pure and Applied Chemistry), Glutax has only .25g or 250mg per vial. It’s not actually fake, it only has lesser content of glutathione giving false claims to the consumers. Another thing, this product is not really made in Italy but from China.

Content:

GLUTAX 5GS Micro :
Glutathione 5000mg
Ascorbic Acid 2000mg
Alpha Lipoic Acid 300mg
Collagen Extract 400mg
Vitamin E 300mg
Vitamin B3 250mg
Vitamin B5 100mg

Saluta 600mg

            The moment that I’ve discovered the false claims of Glutax 5gs, I asked the supplier if she can change my injectables into Saluta. So what’s my reason why I choose Saluta. According to The Philippine Magazine, according to Ateneo Assay Test Commissioned by the American Press stated that Saluta is one of the products that have 100% glutathione. Though it was manufactured in China, this product is considered as legit. For a reasonable price of 1,900-2,100 pesos, you can purchase a box of 600mg of Saluta. You can inject 600mg every 3 days or for a faster result, you can double its dosage. During my first session, the nurse injected 2 vials of 600mg of Saluta Glutathione and 1 500mg of vitamin C. I was amazed because I didn't expect my complexion will get a little bit lighter. After I finished my first box, I saw an improvement, and of course way much better than the result that Glutax 5gs gave me. However, I didn't achieve the glow that I want. It gave me a pale white complexion. I'm looking for a blooming effect. 

Set Includes:

10 vials Saluta Glutathione 600mg
1 tray Vitamin C
10 Syringe
10 butterfly needles

GSH L600

              While I was having a background check for Glutax, I  accidentally clicked Magic Potions website. It gave me some information about fake glutathione and at the same time it introduced me to a brand that is made from France, the GSH Lumineux. GSH Lumineux is a glutathione injectable made by Laboratoires Biopharmacie S.A. in Paris, France. I checked their Instagram account and I saw two GSH, the one with 600mg for Php 3,000 and 1, 200mg for Php 4,500. They sent me a box of 600mg GSH Lumineux the day after I gave my address. My transaction with them was very smooth and fast.  When I open the box, it contains 8 vials of glutathione, vitamin C beauty shots plus an oral booster to maintain high levels of glutathione in the body. If you don’t know how to inject it to your veins, you can visit their shop located at Unit 3 G/f Eight one Eight Bldg.., 818 A Arnaiz Avenue San Lorenzo Makati City from 9am-6pm (Monday-Friday). They also have affordable packages for Gluta drip. I started intaking their glutathone booster capsule (once a day) and injecting 1 vial of 600mg of their pure glutathione together with 1000mg of vitamin C every 3 days. My nurse adviced me that it would be better to inject 1 vial of glutathione since the vitamin C is already 1000mg to avoid wastage. After the first session, I saw my fist becomes whiter. I was thinking maybe it's because of the high dosage of vitamin C or the glutathione booster that I'm taking everyday. The best about its result is my neighbors, relatives and friends are noticing the changes in my complexion. They're telling me that I'm blooming and my skin becomes fairer. The dark spots on my upper arms lighten and I don't easily get coughs and colds because of the high dosage of its vitamin C. 


8 Vials Glutathione 600mg
8 Amps Vitamin C 1000mg
30 Caps Glutathione Booster (N-acetyl L-cysteine 200mg, 
Alpha Lipoic Acid 150mg, L-Methionine 100mg Vit E 100Ui, 
Vit B2 5mg, and  Selenomethionine 200mcg)


              So what's next for me after trying these products? Since GSH gave me the best results among these three, I'll continue using it but this time I'm going to try the GSH Ultima 1500 from Magic Potions Online Beauty and Wellness for 2,300 pesos. I'll write a different blog for this after 2 months for the result.
