Unboxing Althea X Chica-Y-Chico

Months has passed since I got this box from Althea. I was really interested to try Chica Y Chico products because I read and watched good reviews about the brand. Those reviews helped me in deciding if I'll purchase this particular box. Since I’ve been very much busy during those months when I received this, I didn't got time to blog and headed on opening it. So now, despite being late, let me share with you the haul I had.

My current skincare and other makeup were almost empty now so I rummaged again on my series of products from the cabinet and found these. Suddenly I remembered what I needed to do. So here now, I am sharing with you the products inside this box.

As the box mentioned, it's a 10-minute miracle. I don't have any impressions yet because I haven't used any of it. Will definitely post an individual review of these soon. Inclusives in the box are the following:

1. Red serum
2. Red cream
3. Semi-matte cushion #23
4. C Cream
5. Urban Princess Mask (Snow White)
6. Beta-Salic 2.0


Right now, my toner can be used for one more time and my essence is almost empty. These products will be the next in line to use for my daily routine. 
Price: P1,153. 00 from P6,411.00.
Bought from: Althea website
 Size: 6 full-sized items in a box

I am really excited to use this. Starting tomorrow, I will start using this and will update all my readers for the review soon!

Where to Get the Right Car?

This is a sponsored post.

Getting a car nowadays is more likely a necessity than a want. After writing that line, I'm pretty sure people have thoughts in their mind that I'm completely wrong. Of course, it's pretty challenging to get a car especially if you are a mere wage-earner like us. But the first line on this post refers exactly in our case. We got our car because we needed it and not because we want (oh well, a part of me want it also)

Considering the price, every individual is careful in buying their car. We got a second-hand but we made sure that every cent spent will be worth it. It is not just something that you can buy anytime you want.

Finding a car has to be done with careful research. Good thing there are great resources to exactly learn about your potential car purchase. I discovered that Cars.com has a huge selection of information that will provide you with everything you need to make an informative purchase. They have in depth reviews and testimonials from clients who are way satisfied with their service. They also give very essential information about a wide variety of different cars. But the best part is, they are honest with what they are offering to their clients. No sugarcoating whatsoever.

I am highly recommending this site for you. Aside from the honest thoughts, they also have great and friendly staff that  will assist you. Definitely worth checking out.

Review: Revlon Brow Fantasy in Dark Brown

When kilay is life, one will practice on fleek application or the straight-type inspired by Korean style. I admit, I can’t master kilay goals yet but I always make sure to apply everyday as it is also my way of practicing my skills in eye makeup, if there’s any.

I remember getting this Revlon Brow Fantasy in Dark Brown when I subscribed in one of BDJ's beauty boxes. BDJ currently put on hold on their beauty boxes and I feel kinda sad not getting updates on their boxes. Good thing there’s Althea where I get my beauty fix every month. Even if I do not shop, I always let my eyes feast on their beauty products.

Two weeks ago, I started using this product from Revlon and I am pretty amazed on the results. I seldom use brow gel because the last one I got is not in my shade and I ended up giving it to my sister.

I like that it’s 2-in-1; the eyebrow pencil and the brow gel in one. As much as it is convenient to use, I feel that the pencil part can only be used in a little time because it’s only half of the whole product and once it’s sharpened, only a few will be left. Given with that idea, I think the pencil part will only last me a month. As for the brow gel, no questions since the wand can reach the end of the tube. I can fully use it to its end.

It is included in the beauty box so it is cheaper. But if sold individually, it is P575.00. It is indeed cheaper getting the box and trying out this product. 

I like that it’s dark brown because it works great on my skin. But if given the choice, I would prefer for the color to be a little bit lighter. 

PENCIL – I’m not really a fan of pencils because it needs to be sharpened. I think I was just familiar with using my The Face Shop Design My Brow because its tip is slanted so it’s easier to apply.

BROW GEL – I feel that the brow gel is quite sticky because whenever I apply it on my brows after the pencil, it has a tendency to harden and it’s difficult to blend. However, once given some time, it goes back to its soft state.

With Pencil

With Pencil then Gel
Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • It's convenient to use. 
  • I like the color that I got
  • It stays longer than I thought, especially when used with the gel. 

Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • The pencil is only half the product and when sharpened, it gets too short. 
  • Can only be used for a short period of time. 
  • Expensive when sold individually. I got more affordable eyebrow products than this and works just as well. 
PriceGot it from BDJ Box
Bought from: BDJ Box Subscription
 Size: 1.18ml.

I like the product for its convenience. No need to bring a separate brow gel if you want to perfect and achieve your kilay goals. I was just a little sad with the pencil because after a few days, I already sharpened it and a very little amount remained. 😞 

This product is something that I like but won't purchase it by myself. I find it a little expensive for it's purpose. Hoping the brand will launch an affordable version of this. Let's see after a year or two. 

What are your thoughts? Let me know what do you think about the product. 

Shop Alert: Black Hair Spray

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

When it comes to hair-related products, an online store to watch out for is Black Hair Spray which caters different wigs from synthetic to human hair They also have those lace front wigs and weaves. Not to mention that they also sell beauty and hair care products for you and even for your kids. 

When I was young, I always liked playing with my hair because I have long locks then. Now that I'm a new mom, I chopped off my hair because I feel that it's another thing to maintain. After chopping it off however, I wished that I can have it long again because I seldom play with it into braid or any kind of hair art. 

Black Hair Spray is an online shop about all things hair. The website believed that they are different than other stores because their passion is to provide the best service to their valued customers who are looking for help in anything hair-related. They will surely got you covered whatever your hair concern is. 

This website is also a proud authorized dealer of many top brands such as Milky Way, Isis Collection, Velvet, Zury to name a few. 

What is also great is that they offer 30-day return policy, price-matching guarantee and live chat customer service. They offer very convenient options so you will always have an option to shop online. 

This online shop will totally give you the experience you are looking for in a shop. I like that they have very affordable products too. 

Food Getaway: Roberto’s Coffee and Tea in SM Pampanga

Once again, Pampanga Digital Influencers were invited to another series of food review from one of the best steak house in the province. Roberto’s presented a different variety of food this time as we explored their different branch. It is also cool to witness a different set of collection from Mr. Roberto’s trips abroad. For Roberto's SM Pampanga branch, they have the owl collection. 

By the way, for those who didn’t get the chance to read my post on our first food experience on their Roberto’s SM Clark branch, you can check it out on the link provided.

I liked how wide Roberto’s food choices are. Only one food was the same and the rest were a new set from what they presented to us when we were in their SM Clark’s branch. Their drinks were also different from those on the first branch.

They also had a lot of desserts that were presented this time but I find their cakes a little too sweet for my taste. But I love their steak!! It’s simply the best! Actually, Mr. Roberto travels to look for the best steak. He is now trying to build the restaurant as the best steak house. They used to focus on their coffee and tea and I think the move that they are trying to lean as the best steak house is actually a good idea because I prefer his steak more than the dessert.

Resto Name: Roberto's Coffee and Tea
Address: SM Pampanga
Type of Food: American and European cuisine
WIFI: Yes. And a fast one. 

No doubt that Roberto's is one of the best place for steak. Plus all their Cobonpue pieces are truly a work of art. I think it is every branch favorite spot except for the area where the collections were placed. I love this branch because I love the cute owls. What shocking was the price underneath each owl! Go check for yourself :)

Review: OMG (Oh My Girl) One Dip-Instant Nail Lacquer Remover

I used to be an avid fan of nail polishes and nail arts. I still am now. However, I don’t have much time in doing my nails because for one, I have a baby to take care of and I have a full-time job with loads of work that also needs to be taken care of even at home. In short, I’m totally busy because I also have blogging and kdrama in between.  Kdrama is life so don’t ask haha.

Anyway, I found this OMG One Dip Instant Nail Lacquer Remover when we were at the mall couple of months ago. I just used it recently to check if it’s worth using than the traditional nail polish remover. Even if I’m not polishing my nails as often as before, I also want to discover new things about beauty and stuff. If only I can purchase all beauty-related products I would do so but I could only get those I can afford and within my budget.

This product is just easy to use. No need for cotton or swab and what-not. You’ll just have to dip it and you’re good to go.

It’s just a small plastic bottle that can fit one finger. The label and other details were in the bottle already.

It smells like the typical nail polish remover. A little trong for me. I encountered different nail polish remover and there are some that has sweet smell especially those Korean products that I usually purchase in Korean stores.

It is P50. It is a little expensive compare to the nail polish remover in bottles. However, if you replace the lid, you can use it over and over again. Or if you feel that the sponge is getting drier, you can simply buy a nail polish remover and pour it in the sponge so that you will have instant nail lacquer remover again minus the cotton.

My nail polish was removed easily but contrary to their statement on their label that it’s non-drying, I feel that my nails became really dry afterwards. I like though that there’s no acetone in the ingredient. There’s no smearing as well which makes the removing of the polish clean.

Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • No need for cotton m=balls and nail polish remover. 2-in-1.
  • Watsons has this and it's easy to find Watsons in malls. 
  • Very easy to use and removes polish easily.
  • It doesn't smear so it removes the polish cleanly. 
  • Can be reuse when content were all used up. Just put on nail polish remover.
  • Serves a great idea for a DIY. 

Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • Can't be use in toenails 'cause it won't fit in the container. 
  • Drying! My nails turned out super dry which is kinda disappointing.
Bought from: Watsons
 Size: 75 ml.

The downside though is that you can’t clean your toenails in it. Unlike our nails in the hand, our toe nails can’t be separated much hence it would be difficult to fit one toenail on the bottle. It is just good for the hand.    

Overall, I think this is nice. Though you can save P50 if you DIY something like this. You just need a small container which can fit the sponge and one finger. This is nice when you are in a rush and wants to finish ASAP or you can also bring this anywhere and save bringing cotton.

Event: Zoe’s Digital Media Launch

I am privileged to be invited during Zoe’s Digital Media Launch which happened last July 7, 2017. The restaurant formally opened on the 8th and they invited bloggers and influencers ahead than most media people. Pampanga Digital Influencers  feel so honored to be part of it.

The owners Rodolfo "Sonny" Santos and her daughter, Patricia Fae Santos-Cayanan started Zoe as a family business. It is a KTV - Events Place which aims to serve delicious food and wonderful ambiance to Kapampangans. What Zoe has that other restaurants don’t have is that they can be flexible with their events. If you’re tight on the budget, you can call the owners and you can make a request to them to customize the event for you according to your finances. I think this option is something that restaurant should offer so that people won’t hesitate to hold functions in such places.

Anyway, the event started in the afternoon and it’s great that it’s after work time. It is an intimate gathering and the launch started with the introduction of the place and the food they are offering. There were also games before tasting the food and a lot of us won GCs. Watch out on my announcement as I will be giving away GCs soon on my Instagram.

The food that they served were some of the bestsellers of the restaurant. 

Since they are also a KTV place, you can bring your friends if you want to have fun while dining out. Posted are rates on their KTV rooms and even VIP rooms. The media launch was actually held at the VIP room and it can accommodate around 12-15 persons.

For functions and reservations, you can call (0917)795-5576 or at (045) 409-7864. Watch out for my Instagram and Facebook page for the giveaway soon.

‘Till my next foo adventure. Ciao!
