#GerifiedPH: De-age yourself with Celeteque!

Which do you prefer beauty or brains?2.jpg

We can’t have everything, but with the help of Celeteque we can have both the beauty and the brains!

Hosted by Ms. Bianca Valerio, Celeteque launched something that is beautiful and timeless – the Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging line! The Mozaic Living was filled with beauty and skincare enthusiasts and media friends who gather around to see what ageless is all about.

An in-depth discussion about fighting the signs of aging with Celeteque’s very own dermatologist, Dra. Heidi Chan and how Celeteque gives the specific solutions based on your skin type! Apparently, yes, knowing your skin type is crucial in fighting the visible sign of aging!

Aging is a natural process that determines the length of a living thing’s existence extending to the beginning to any given period of time. In humans, aging can be visibly seen through the largest organ of the body, the skin. It is a dynamic organ that shows the most obvious sign of ageing because of the fact that it is under direct contact to the environment – also known as the wear and tear effect. Although we cannot stop aging and there are many factors that we cannot control or do anything about, there are those that we could delay. The one that we couldn’t stop is the Intrinsic Ageing which is the chronological aging that is genetically determined and a continuous process even for photo-protected skin. The one that we could do something about is the Extrisic Ageing – this is the environment-induced factors, usually most influential but definitely controllable such as exposure to the UV light or direct sunlight and cigarette smoking.

Dra. Heida Chan differentiate the aging in 20s, 30s and 40s. Read more. Continue reading “#GerifiedPH: De-age yourself with Celeteque!”

Empties: May 2015

I thought that I’ll be leaving the month of May with my Bambam on my arms, but I guess he is taking his time and still is enjoying his luxury suite inside my tummy. Nevertheless, I am so happy that he is going full term – as I am 38 weeks last Friday!

Off! Soft & Scented – effective and safe mosquito repellent with soothing chamomile.

Vitress Instant Relax Cuticle Coat – there are actually five variants of Vitress specified to create different hair styles and care for specific type of tresses. This product contains special serum that wraps and seals strands to protect hair from damage while giving hair that extra shine and smoothness for instant straight hair.

Vitress Heat Protect – a must use hair product if you’re planning to soak under the sun or at least use hair tools like straighteners, blowers and curlers.

Celeteque Brightening Anti-Aging with SPF 16 – another sample tub from BDJ Bpx. I love to use this as a day moisturizer just before applying make up

ELF Gel Liner in Black – smooth and glides on easily until it dried out. :O The plastic container wasn’t that reliable.

Maybelline MasterLiner in Brown – you just have to be very careful in using this as hard hands may break the pencil. :/

Maybelline HyperCurl Volume Express – my non-existent lashes became visible and thicker. Pain in the *ss to remove if you don’t have proper makeup remover. Celeteque cleansing oil does the job (removing mascara) well.

ELF Eye Primer & Liner Sealer – I didn’t enjoy this product, not in a bit. The eye primer is too thick and it doesn’t help on keeping my eye makeup in place, it melts away. IDK if it is because of the humid weather or because I put too much, I tried putting as little as possible with failed result. The container itself is not very sturdy because it’s made with plastic – I dropped and break the liner sealer spilling the liquid. Sad.

Nature Republic Lemon Balm and Aritaum Fresh Essence Mask in Hydraulic Acid – some of my goodies that I got from Korea! 🙂 In instantly makes my face softer and smoother.

MJ Morning Glory Parfum – unisex perfume that last for a day.

Cycles Sensitive Diaper Cream – Just like any other Cycles Sensitive product, it is fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and paraben-free. This got my back whenever baby pass a hard stool that irritate his skin, and it is also good on irritated genitals that was soaked in urine – sometimes we tend to forget to change/check diaper in time hence this happens. A thin layer is all I need when it comes to my baby, a swipe of thin layer of this and the redness will disappear after a while.

Victoria’s Secret Body Splash – in Sweet Temptation is a lush sensual fragrance with a hint of sweetness.

Ever Bilena Daily Sunblock Whitening Lotion – I didn’t see any whitening effect and it’s a bit heavy on my skin so this is better used when you’re inside an air-conditioned room with a some errands outside.

Avon Solutions Sun – has SPF 30. It’s in a spray bottle for easier use and is in liquid/water form hence easily absorbed by skin, lightweight but makes your skin look oily/shiny which is a good/bad thing depending on your preference. Definitely not for photo ops.

Skin White Whitening Facial Cleanser – good makeup remover and cleanser in one on days when I’m too tired to have a decent face wash before going to bed.

Natasha Shimmer Cologne in Paradiso Maui – perfectly used as a cologne and body glitter in one. Shimmer will stay the whole day while you have to reapply at least once to keep the fragrance strong enough. Glitters and scent to accessorize!

Kojie San Lolita in Fantasy – a cologne spray perfect for summer. Not too strong and gives a sweet scent of freshness.

United Homes Ferusulfate Iron – cheap iron supplement in preventing and treating iron deficiency anemia and also safe for pregnant and lactating women.

Vidal Sassoon Shampoo and Conditioner – first off, thank you so much BDJ Box for sending this over. It leaves hair feeling silky smooth without feeling heavy on my scalp. Manageable hair – clean and conditioned.

Physiogel Cleanser – more about this here.

Happy to abide my adieu to these useful products so that I could get my hands on new ones that are worth to try. Hello June! Please rain my way with more blessings! 🙂

Empties: April to June 2014

My empties could have been a monthly post as intended but life got me busy it made my bag unorganized and empties unposted.

Bag, schedule, life. One word. Mess.And I like it!  #optimist #bringiton All Inclusive by Judy Astley will keep me company.

Of course, I wanna get on track and move on, cleaning my vanity by emptying products that lives there like forever is a good detoxifying habit! 🙂

Taya Beauty Amazon White Clay Thickening Conditioner – more of this here.

Pond’s Anti-Bacterial Facial Scrub with Herbal Clay – I love the smell and it’s refreshing after wash feel. Does the job well too.

Block & White Natural Pearl – that I used as a hand cream. It has UV protection and whitens skin at the same time.

Splash Hair Polish Hairdressing cream – finally, I’m ready to get my hands on my other

Taya Beauty goodies.

Anew Vitalizing Cream – again. It did break me out so I just used this as a makeup remover mostly. The sale tag kept me buying this, I always give in! Temptation, temptation! lol

L’Oreal Youth Code – Alas! This is a bittersweet goodbye. Why empty out on me? Why now that I’m used on using your dropper? (I tilt the jar as I’m typing this, hoping to get the last juicy drop! I did! And oh it smells a-mazing still!) Well, maybe because it done its part. I think I’ll be saying hi to another bottle of Youth Code AFTER I finish all of my serums in my stash.

Ever Bilena BB Cream in Oriental shade – I used my Too Cool for School BB Cream as highlight with this as contour. Great match! But I think it would be awhile if ever I decided to try this out again. I’m now on my first bottle of Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation in 360 Golden Caramel which I cannot see on Revlon’s kiosk at SM Aura! Boo! [but not really, if you know what I mean? 😉 ]

Johnson’s Baby Lotion in Milk – do I have to say more?

Johnson’s Baby Lotion in Pink – classic.

Myra-E Shine-Free Face Powder in Light – Packed with Vitamin E with SPF 15 and hypoallergenic!

ELF Two-Way Cake Foundation – has SPF 15 but seriously, the packaging needs an upgrade it looks cheaper than other cheaper local two-way cake foundation out there!

Slimmers World Gentaflou cream – perfect for just got burned facial warts and zits. 🙂

Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara – 2nd tube. I think I’ll skip using mascaras for now, since I’m using Lavish Lashes for the second time around. I decided to give this a try again despite of my not-so-good first time try. Talk about SECOND CHANCES! Ha! (If we are as close as lovers are, you’ll laugh so hard you could skip your crunches!)

Sebamed Liquid Face & Body Wash – this is one in my list of snatch-from-the-cradle products! Sorry Clyde! 😛

Yves Rocher UVBeauty Shield – SPF50, PA++, lightweight. Does the job like a Mafia boss.

Celeteque Tri-Benefit Power Cream – first off, thank you so much BDJ Box and BDJ Power Planner for these cute samples. Now on my last sample tub and ready to buy the regular size. (Looking for my BDJ Lifestyle card! :P)

Hygienix Hand Sanitizer – this is a bag resident. Keeps you your hand clean. Door knob clean. Toilet bowl clean. Just clean. and smells wonderful too.

 Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Scar Serum – I use this on my pregnancy tiger stripes and heart surgery scar. It does lightens the area and tightens the skin as well. It also reminds me of Willy Wonka and his Chocolate Factory.

That’s it! Let’s wish more products to go so that more will come! Haha! Love all, trust a few and do bad to no one because you sure will reap what you sow!

P.S. Karma will get you where it hurts the most. 😉

Celeteque Anti-Wrinkle Ultra Hydrating Cleansing Oil

Prevention is way better than cure. With that said, we should take care of our skin’s youthful glow and elasticity and maintain it. The earlier we make it a habit the better. One way of taking good care of our skin is by washing it regularly with mild emollient soap, putting moisturizers and removing makeup before going to bed… and one of the latest finds I had had this…

DSC00481I got several of these as samples to try and I’m now on to my last sample size bottle, which reminds me, I need to get my hand on a regular size!

Celeteque Anti-Wrinkle Ultra Hydrating Cleansing Oil is a mouthful, of words and of action! Yep, that’s right. This cleansing oil is one the products in their line: Advanced Anti-Aging. So if you are above 30. This is for you. I’m 26 aotm, and I did enjoy using this especially at night. What I do is, I remove my makeup with my regular makeup remover and then apply this. This removes the dirt that my makeup remover didn’t get while leaving my skin smoother and moisturized.

Advanced Anti-Aging products from Celeteque promises 92% reduction of fine line in 6 weeks of regular use – amazing!

Celeteque Anti-Wrinkle Ultra Hydrating Cleansing Oil has dual vitamin regenerating complex that promotes healthy tissue, elastic and moisturized skin. It helps in firming skin hence reducing fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation – a lady’s bestfriend indeed!

I love how specific Celeteque caters to what women needs, be it with ladies hitting 30’s, 40’s and acne-prone. They even got a line called Sun Care for outdoorish bellas.

I will definitely look out for this when I go out and try other Celeteque goodness!

Ditch the wrinkles,
