My Korean Facial Therapy Experience at O2 Laser Skin Center

Annyeong!

I have always admired Koreans’ skin. They are poreless, youthful, and undoubtedly flawless! 🙂

It is no wonder that most of the skincare products I use are made from their country. And Korean skin clinics and salons have already established themselves as a credible skincare and beauty provider.

That is why I was soooo stoked when I was invited to try O2 Korean Facial Therapy! 😀

IMG_20170718_122345IMG_20170718_123017IMG_20170718_123011

Their signature facial is a therapeutic treatment formulated to deeply cleanse, rejuvenate and hydrate leaving you a more radiant and revitalized skin.

This 90 minutes facial therapy comes with a relaxing and firming face and shoulder massage which reinvigorates the skin and relieves stress.

Perfect for people who want to be refreshed and relaxed at the same time, just like me!

IMG_20170718_123259

This should be exciting because the last facial treatment I had was almost 7 years ago! Haha 😛 I was just so scared that these treatments will cause more damage than good! But my braveheart and beauty instinct told me that this is something I shouldn’t miss!

So here are the things you should expect when you have your O2 Korean Facial Therapy:

1st Step: Cleanse.

Cleansing the face with their Cleansing Milk and Cleansing Gel. This step will involve removal of makeup (if patient has any on) and dirt from the environment.

IMG_20170718_123913

2nd Step: Scrubber.

Using a machine, they will scrub off deep seated dirt for a more thorough cleansing.

IMG_20170718_154317

3rd Step: Ultrasonic.

Using a special gel, a flat device emitting heat is made to go around the whole face. This helps open and soften the pores to prepare it for extraction.

I was so used with overhead steam in opening pores to allow impurities’ extraction. so this was new to me. Or am I too outdated already after my 7-year hiatus from facial treatments?

Nevertheless, I was advised that the ultrasonic machine is more upscale and healthier for the skin!

IMG_20170718_124649IMG_20170718_124831IMG_20170718_125344

4th Step: Extraction/Pricking of Whiteheads, Blackheads, Pimples.

Now, this is the one I was dreading! As I made my way to the clinic, I was so oblivious that this is part of what’s going to happen to me that day!

I mean, I had facials before but I was only thinking that today’s treatment was more of like a cream-spreading activity only, and no pricking!

I was a bit anxious because a friend actually had a bad experience with one skin salon, and I don’t want my skin to have accidental dents like she had!

IMG_20170718_125515

IMG_20170718_125724

IMG_20170718_125851

Surprisingly, they weren’t that painful! And I didn’t shed a tear! My facial therapist was really good, and she’s very careful and strategizes effectively to ease the pain whenever she attempts to stick the needle!

IMG_20170718_131246

5th Step: Destressing.

This is done through a relaxing face, shoulder and back massage using their special Korean massage oil for 10-15 minutes.

I know, this is a skin care salon, but you have to give them additional brownie points for giving a rejuvenating massage! As in, super narelax talaga ako!

I know I was drifting to sleep already!

IMG_20170718_131442

6th Step: Antioxidant Infusion.

Using another machine, they infused a high-end Vitamin C from Korea which helps lighten the skin as well as slow down the aging process. In this treatment, you will feel a mild stinging sensation, especially in the bony areas. This is the machine infusing the Vitamin C inside your skin.

IMG_20170718_134553

I felt the tinge and electrifying sensation, but nothing to worry! It was too mild, you’ll only feel a tickle!

7th Step: Calming and Anti aging.

Cold Collagen mask is applied and left on the face for 10-15 minutes. This is another anti-aging procedure and the cool sensation of the mask will help reduce the redness from the extraction done prior.

IMG_20170718_135521

I know, I look like a mummy! Haha 😀 But as claustrophobic it may seem, it is my favorite part! I can really feel the rich mask seeping down my skin to make it look healthier and more radiant!

8th Step: Removal of mask and application of Moisturizer and Sun protection Korean creams.

This procedure settled everything, and I was happy they already put sunblock, because I will be going to another event after.

IMG_20170718_141706IMG_20170718_141742IMG_20170718_141942IMG_20170718_142714

A nice selfie with Dr. Cherry Ann Co, the Resident Dermatologist sealed this great deal! I even had the most opportune moment to consult her about my skin dilemmas! Thank you so much for being gracious and patient with my questions! 😀

IMG_20170718_142747

I’ve been trying their Cleansing Milk, Moisturizing Toner and Sunblock for almost a month now! 🙂 And my skin feels more youthful everyday! 😀

This beautiful change is a kickstart into my journey of achieving a smoother, healthier and more radiant skin!

I will definitely come back for my next session! 🙂 Can you believe that this amazing treatment only costs P1,200? It’s super sulit, and totally worth it! No need for you to fly to Korea just to experience Korean skin care! 🙂

“Don’t Panic. It’s Organic!”: 5 Things You Should Know about Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon’s Beauty Arsenal

The last time I plucked the pits was probably… hmmm.. Never!

Seriously, I never plucked them because I was such a coward to hurt myself in that manner, let alone that one-time unrequited love way back. Oops!

I actually resorted to hot wax and hair removal creams before; the hair removal cream I can manage, but not the hot wax! I was literally in tears with two arms flipped up in the air because the “meeting place” of my arms and torso were too busy being copiously wax-spread. They were too painful to remove!

So I really tried to find other means to keep the skin supple, smooth and non-chicken-ish.

IMG_20170714_113244IMG_20170714_113311

Most tend to forget that the skin is indeed the body’s biggest organ.

And just like any organ, it needs a certain amount of care for it to stay healthy and function properly. The thing is, people think that they are doing their skin good by applying certain products or having certain services done on regular basis. This, in some degree, can be true. However, the fact of the matter is, most beauty products—including those used in some of the most regular beauty services you get—contain chemicals that do more harm to the skin (and the rest of the body) than good.

IMG_20170714_113725

It is not uncommon knowledge that anything we apply on our skin eventually ends up in our bloodstream. And for this reason, more and more people are now opting for all-natural and organic beauty options.

On an average, four out of ten people readily seek out organic products. But if you’re part of the six still on the fence, here are the top reasons why you should make the switch:

  1. Less health risks

As said before, most of the beauty products available in the market today contain a standard cocktail of chemicals, which do more harm your skin than good. This, combined with exposure to harmful pesticides and preservatives used on the food sold in supermarkets, can give rise to a number of diseases.

  1. Lower exposure to allergens

IMG_20170714_114706

The chemicals commonly used in beauty products, whether to strengthen its effects or extend shelf life, can cause skin irritation and trigger allergies, particularly for those with sensitive skin.

Organic products may seem less effective compared to their chemical counterparts, but are gentler on the skin and has no side effects.

  1. Helps nourish your skin

Organic and all-natural beauty products are all plant-based. Meaning, the main ingredients used in these products come from directly from plants or parts of plants and come with nourishing power. In the same way that you are advised to eat your fruits and vegetables regularly to keep the rest of your body healthy, putting on all-natural products on the skin will definitely help supply it with much-needed vitamins and minerals to boost its health.

  1. Better quality products

IMG_20170714_114725

There’s a lot of effort and detail that goes into the production of an all-organic, product, if only because they want to encourage more people to see the benefits of going chemical-free.

  1. (Almost) Painless Regimen

IMG_20170714_113909

Waxing is arguably one of the most tedious and painful beauty regimens anyone has to go through, but through organic options—particularly sugar wax, which wraps thoroughly around the hair and allow for a cleaner pull, pain is greatly reduced.

This is where Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon comes in to save the day! Using only 100%naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax— you get a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.

With its recent opening in the newly renovated Unimart in Greenhills Shopping Center – Hey Sugar keeps on sharing the “organic way of life” to more and more people in the Metro.

Drop by Hey Sugar Unimart and expect a clean and inviting waxing haven and leave it all to the hands of expert aestheticians trained to deliver the best sugar waxing services.

IMG_20170714_115331

My eyebrows only needed a little retouch since I had them threaded about a week and a half ago, surprisingly it wasn’t that painful, and the redness ebbed faster than it used to.

11 Ways to Extend the Life of Your Nail Polish – Nailaholics, Unimart Greenhills

 Nothing spells “high-maintenance” than having well-groomed and polished nails. I learned this way back in my training about power grooming and business etiquette.

Having nicely painted digits is a must especially if you always find yourself meeting a lot of people and exchanging more handshakes than cards.

With all the talks I am conducting and the presentation preps, I rarely have the time to visit a salon. Good thing I learned that Nailaholics will open its newest branch to date at the new Unimart Greenhills! Of course, I wouldn’t miss being there for the world!

IMG_20170714_112535

IMG_20170714_130113

Alongside with the nail pampering, I’d like to share with you some tips I took away from the Nail Experts of Nailaholics Unimart at Greenhills in extending the life of our mani and pedis!

IMG_20170714_113046IMG_20170714_112753

  1. Make sure your nails are moisturized before getting your manicure. Hydrated nail beds cause less nail breakage and chips.

IMG_20170714_120927

IMG_20170714_121503

2. Always use a base coat before painting colour on. This protects your nails from staining and also acts as a great adhesive for the polish ensuring lasting colour.

IMG_20170714_123111IMG_20170714_123231

3. Apply thin coats of polish with every stroke. It dries quickly and doesn’t cause bubbles.

4. Wait a couple of minutes between each coat to make sure the nail polish adheres properly to its base.

IMG_20170714_125025

5. A horizontal swipe across the tip of your nails after your final coat, along the edge, seals the colour in and protects your nails against chipping.

6. If you’re rushing, dip your tips in ice cold water to harden the nail polish quicker.

7. To extend the life (and shine) of your manicure, apply really thin coats of topcoat every other day.

IMG_20170714_130039

8. Be sure to wear gloves while doing the dishes—water expands the nail bed and causes the nail polish to chip.

IMG_20170714_124826

9. Cuticle oil helps freshen up your manicure and moisturize your hand.

10. Don’t bite your nails!

11. Be careful when applying skin care products. Certain types can cause the nail polish to dull and discolour like sunscreen and mosquito repellents.

IMG_20170714_125203IMG_20170714_125216

Make sure to keep in mind these very helpful insider tips from Nailaholics’ expert nail technicians or better yet, get them first-hand when you visit Nailaholics Unimart located on the Mezzanine Level of Unimart Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan City.

Koragem Premium Japanese Collagen Review

Have you ever watched “Death Becomes Her”?

Death Becomes Her

It is an old movie featuring Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn wherein they battle and struggle to look eternally beautiful by drinking a Youth-Inducing Potion.

I have watched it when I was 8 years old, and that was probably a trigger for me to know that physical beauty fades, and there is nothing you can do about it – unless you find that potion.

IMG_20170412_230554

But fast forward to now, I realized that you CAN actually do something. You can eat healthy, exercise, complete sleeping hours, drink lots of water, go to the doctor, and even drink beauty pills to help restore your natural beauty.

I am in my late-20s, and I can say that there are a lot of changes happening to my face and body. My face has visible wrinkles now, and my back aches more than it used to. I blame it to the poor posture I have, which my mom kept on reminding me.

Consequently, I happen to stumble upon Koragem Premium. It’s a food-supplement that aids collagen production.

Collagen is naturally produced in our bodies. It is responsible for the elasticity and strength of our hair, nails, bones, and skin. However, as we age, amounts of it tend to diminish as well, that is why old-aged adults have tendencies to have weaker bones and are predisposed to concerns regarding the integumentary system.

I remember learning it in Nursing School too, that is why I was a bit afraid of menopause because estrogen and collagen are sure to decrease big time.

With all these knowledge, I was quite grateful to try this product,  checking if these will fare well in the skin rejuvenating department.

I took Koragem for a month, and surprisingly here are the results I gained.

IMG_20170408_135031

  1. Skin looks clearer and smoother.

I am quite devastated with all the pimple marks left after the busy days and sleepless nights. Koragem helped my pimples heal faster. Plus, my skin felt softer and smoother, even without lotion!

IMG_20170714_124826

  1. Stronger nails

My left thumb nail usually cracks when it grows longer, and tends to cut all the way through. This didn’t happen in during the month I was taking the supplements.

IMG_20170708_163107

  1. Less hair fall

Hair fall is a big problem for me, especially when I have to dry and comb them after a bath. Taking these helped my hair to be strong, and easy to manage.

  1. More energy

I also observed that I don’t get tired easily, and it’s easy for me to do things in a more efficient manner. I got to finish my tasks and errands right away without feeling too worn-out.

  1. No headaches

There are a lot of things causing headaches, few of which are stress, low intake of water, and poor blood supply. Collagen is also present in the blood vessels, as they assist in the vasoconstriction and vasodilation. I believe my blood pressure was well regulated, and more blood is perfused to my brain. OMG. I think this will help those who often suffer from head aches.

There are a lot of health improvements I observed, but these were the most apparent! I highly recommend Koragem Premium Japanese Collagen to all my friends!

My Vivere Salon Glorietta Experience with Hairstylist JC Espiritu

Two months ago I decided to dye my hair rose gold but got out with ginger hair instead. If you happen to read my post about it, you might get a flashback. 🙂

But what seemed to be a mistake, turned out to be a unexpected blessing! Because with this new hair color, people recognize me more!

(April 2017)

I remember one time when I was eating in Trinoma, a friend passed by the glass window and immediately caught sight of my hair. She wondered if it was really me! Haha It was! 😀

In Gateway, I was walking on the grounds surrounding the coliseum, when a friend got out of a nearby restaurant and approached me. Whenever there’s a blog event or a speaking engagement, people call me “Via” already, without asking for my name! It’s crazy! 😀

Via Galang 2

(April 2017)

So I guess ginger hair helped me in more ways than I expected. I haven’t even thought of it as a part of my branding. 😀

My publicist actually advised me to maintain it, because it has provided me an extension of my brand as a blogger and as a shoe designer.

IMG_20170430_090632

(April 2017)

And of course, we know that a lot of things don’t lasts forever, especially hair color and length. As my hair grew longer (as if it’s not long enough),  the roots are starting to show, and the once highly pigmented strands is beginning to fade.

IMG_20170708_112126

That is why it was so timely that I got to visit Vivere Salon in Glorietta, and have my much-awaited hair retouch and makeover!

I booked an Uber to Glorietta 2, and surprisingly I found the salon too soon than I thought I would. It’s on the  3rd floor, in front of Electro World.

I love how posh their salon is. It even has this geometric design I am so crazy about! 😀

IMG_20170708_120436-01IMG_20170708_120426-01

IMG_20170708_121438-01

Since my hair color was actually just an accident, it may be difficult to duplicate. The original hue wasn’t red, or orange, or pink, it seems like a fusion of all 3. The tint changes magnificently in different levels of lighting.

IMG_20170427_202127

My favorite was the one under a yellow misty light in Francis Libiran’s Fashion Show. It had a rich, romantic and regal tinge to it.

So this is my hair that needs all the love it can get!

IMG_20170708_121352

IMG_20170708_121259

JC Espiritu, the resident Senior Hair Stylist in Vivere Salon Glorietta worked his magic in creating the color I wanted. He posed some techniques about the duration of the bleaching cream on my crowning glory, and some hairstyling words that sounded alien to me.

IMG_20170708_120938

I specifically told and showed him that I have to achieve THAT certain color because it’s part of my self-branding. People recognize me to have that red-orange hair color.

IMG_20170708_122500

Ms Eveb (Junior Hair Stylist) helped me bleach my hair roots until they turned corn yellow. The rest of my mane has already been bleached previously, so there was no need for additional creams.

IMG_20170708_123447

IMG_20170708_131231

The concoction was painful as expected, but I didn’t mind. All for beauty!

IMG_20170708_131808

I got my hair washed, and I swear I look like an easter egg here! I was actually in doubt whether I should upload this, but hey, we all got flaws! Haha 🙂

IMG_20170708_132116

IMG_20170708_132122

After an hour or less, my hair was ridden off the cream, and had to be blow dried. Honestly, I didn’t mind going out of the salon with a gradient yellow to orange hair!

IMG_20170708_133328.jpg

IMG_20170708_132421.jpg

I look like a total walking sunset in this! But, the process isn’t finished yet, so I have to stay seated.

This was the time Sir JC showed me the hair dye emulsion. They particularly look like the pigment I wanted, so I was so excited!

He said, “Ms Via, nag-magic ako!”

IMG_20170708_135025

IMG_20170708_134636IMG_20170708_134702

IMG_20170708_145822

(Redeeming my egg face with this tilted lying-shower-pose! Haha 😀 )

It was Sir JC’s idea to have my eyebrows dyed as well. They turned shades lighter as in! 

My “kilay is life” game looks more appealing, and suiting for my raspberry hair!

True enough, his potion-skills were excellent!

IMG_20170708_155638-01

IMG_20170708_162248

I didn’t just get the color I wanted, it was even better! 😀

I have never wanted a hair color so much in my life! Not to mention, that finally, there is a salon that exists that can actually make your hair color dreams come true!

My signature hair is BAAAAAAACK!

And it’s better, red-oranger, gingerer, mermaid-ier and Ariel-er! 😀

IMG_20170708_163518-01IMG_20170708_164802-01

IMG_20170708_163014I can’t contain my happiness, this is even better than having legs! That is why I can’t help but splash out hugs and flipping fins to the best hair experts in the land!

Via Galang for Vivere Salon Glorietta

Thank you Sir JC and Ms Eveb for bringing back the life and luster of my hair, and making it more beautiful! 😀

IMG_20170708_164104

It looks very cotton candy on this side of the salon! Took a snappy with Rayrose Samson, a fellow blogger!

IMG_20170708_164240

My hair makeover is valued as follows:

Haircut: P390 / Hair Color: P5,000 / Hair Treatment: P1,500

Nailaholics Clears Floo Network to Transport You to London

“Wingardium Leviosa!” “Expelliarmus!” “Ridikkulus!”

These are just some of the spells I grew up with while being engrossed in the wizarding world of Harry Potter. I usually read the books, with a made-up wand at hand, while chanting the spells cast by the characters in the series.

I have never been more animated by a book.

I’ve read all the books, and watched the movies. Saying that I am a fan is an understatement. Muggle-born or a Squib might be the better term.

Golly. I hate being a Muggle! That is why, it has always been my dream to visit London, and experience the magic in the world of wizards and witches!

Harry Potter

I am pretty sure, that you’d want to visit London too! Either you’re a fellow Potterhead, a traveler, or someone who’d like to visit some friends or family there, this may come a bit of a shock <insert Prof. McGonagall’s tone in Chamber of Secrets>

Haha “Don’t worry, you don’t need a Mandrake root to heal! 😀

Dinner with Miss Philippines Earth at Yoshinoya

There was once a time when I dreamt of becoming a beauty queen. I know it’s a long shot, but I think having a dream at a very young age pushes a child to choose and work on a path she knows she will soon reign.

I have joined pageants in high school, and I highly urge girls to go and experience this kind of activity (maybe at least once in their lives). There is just something about beauty pageants that prompts you to be at your best; brew confidence, exude poise and class.; and always be more than just a pretty face.

Back at work, I used to be part of the hosting team to Bb. Pilipinas candidates, that is why meeting empowered women seems like a second nature to me. I love talking to dreamchasers and women of substance. I get so high and happy!

That is why I got really excited when I was invited to meet some of the Miss Philippines Earth 2017 candidates.

Last June 24, I found my Snaky Reed Somerhalder Sky heels prancing in the marble floors of Greenbelt 3. The dinner was held in Yoshinoya.

While waiting, I got served by these delicious entrees from the restaurant.

It was just my second time visiting a Yoshinoya branch, and I was so surprised how lovely and courteous the staff were. The food tasted healthy and were cooked just right. I am obsessed in their red tea by the way! 🙂

Nine candidates arrived that day, and they were exceptionally smart, quick-of-tongue, commanding in presence and beautiful.

They performed, and introduced themselves, and I was left in awe about how young and empowered they are. I highly applaud these girls for chasing their dreams, and for being ambassadors of environmental awareness and preservation of our nature.

I also got the chance to chat and mingle with them. It was fulfilling and amazing because I got to bond and made new friends! Beautiful friends! 🙂

How My Shopaholic Tendencies Landed Me in the Shopee Birthday Bash and its Video Collaboration

I have a confession to make. I never thought I’d like this. I was just trying it for a little bit, you know, testing it for a little while. But then, little whiles became days, weeks, months, years – and there was nothing I could do to stop.

Forgive me please, but I am a shopping addict. 

IMG_5684

I remember visiting the nearby mall in our university back in college every after school. I used to sneak my shopping goodies inside my bedroom window first, before finally going inside the house’s main door.

I was afraid my Mom will scold me again. But I was terminal. :/ Haha

Too ill to heal. 😀

IMG_20170621_213325

You see, looking back I never really regret shopping much. Wanting nicer things actually pushed me to go pursue a business, so I can afford the things I want.

Little did I know, these “shopaholic tendencies” would pave the way for some opportunities, aside from Versaheel.

Last night, I went to the Shopee’s Birthday Bash!

It was wonderful, and even though it took me forever to arrive because damn, the traffic was treacherous; I was still able to come in one piece.

Ibiza Beach Club was stupendous! I have seen one that’s similar in Cebu, and it is such a genius to have something like that here in Manila!

The place was in an all-white-theme, and that spells the extra class of the venue! We were situated in arc sofas and the little platforms served as pathways. The water in the little pools on the sides made everything more magical!

I am really grateful for being part of this year’s Shopee’s anniversary party. Not only did I meet new people, I was also given the chance to participate in its video collaboration with Manila Mash.

We had the shoot in Café Libertad in Amorsolo, Makati. You’ve got to visit them! They have the most flavorful sandwiches in Makati, I tell you!

In here we talked about how convenient shopping became because of this app. I never have to go out just to canvass and buy something. Looking for a product became a lot easier through Shoppee!

You can watch the full video here, as produced by Manila Mash in collaboration with Shoppee!

It also helps me market Versaheel more. I can say that Shopee’s features come in real handy for entrepreneurs like me, because it allows us to have a medium to sell our products and get searched in the most suitable and convincing way!

Plus, the Shopee Guarantee makes it more genuine and safer, because the app becomes your gateway in buying online. And a seller will only collect the payment, once you, the buyer receives the product.

Trust issues are even addressed directly!
