6 Reasons Why You Should Switch to Jeunesse Anion

Menstruation is a fundamental function of our reproductive system. A reproductive system that is well taken care of leads to a fit sexual and reproductive condition. It keeps us away from diseases such as reproductive and urinary tract infections and bacterial vaginosis. Menstrual health practices that contribute to infections include poor personal hygiene and the use of a low-quality sanitary pad.

It is our right to be able to manage our menstrual health with adequate knowledge and safety. And part of it is to be able to choose a superior pad we can entrust our sexual and reproductive health with. Jeunesse makes a variety of anion pads available for any situation, whether night or day, or light or heavy, for a hassle-free monthly period. And here are a multitude of reasons why you should pick Jeunesse Anion Pads:

  1. Extra Boost of Softness – Jeunesse Anion Pads are made of super soft virgin pulp and non-recycled cotton material that guarantee an extra boost of softness. It is free from the plastic top that makes chafe and rashes into nonexistence. It is also dirt-free and sterilized which is a huge plus!

  1.  Non-Toxic – It is free from synthetic materials rayon and polyester, as well as potent chemicals such as fragrances, chloromethane, chloroethane, chloroform, acetone, and toxic industrial adhesives. While perfume might smell nice, they are more dangerous than you think. We don’t want any of them near our privates.

  1. Breathable – Plastic suffocates your pad. Jeunesse cares about your health by creating a pad that can breathe. You know well that bacteria multiply more rapidly in an environment that has less oxygen. Jeunesse pads allow maximum airflow that takes away that icky, wet feeling. Air permeability eliminates unpleasant odor too.

  1. Thin but Highly Absorbent – It turns liquid into gel to ensure that no leakage and stains occur even at full capacity. This brand simply does not disappoint because for Jeunesse, thin means superior liquid retention anytime of the day.

  1. Built-in with Anion Strip – Its special anion chip releases negative ions once it contacts with moisture. This negative ions’ interaction with bacteria and fungi, whose job is to release the pungent smell and cause rashes, effectively weakens and destroys them. Stinky odor will never be an issue for you because anion is a natural deodorizer. Negative ions also attach themselves to bacteria in large numbers, making it too heavy to be transported by air.

  1. Resealable Packaging – Its packaging is one of its kind. It is made of resealable aluminum foil for double protection from contamination. And added to that, it is resealable.

There you have it. The reasons why you will love Jeunesse Anion Pads. What makes it perfect is it starts with high-quality materials. It is comfortable and most importantly, it is safe. Jeunesse is a brand that cares about our menstrual health not only during the time of the month and it’s in it for the long haul!

Lip Pop: A BDJ Box - Pink Sugar Exclusive

This box has been on my possession for more than a year already and haven't fully reviewed it yet. I opened it couple of months back and have been using some of it for several times now.

This box is an exclusive Pink Sugar Box so I was excited to receive it as this was my very first try on the brand. I have been hearing and reading about it for the longest time but I wasn't able to get my hands on them, until the day I got this box. This was definitely a steal because I got this box for only P1000. Yup, you read that right! All ten lippies for only a thousand bucks! I think it was the lowest price they offered during the duration of the sale and it was only for 24 hrs. I immediately grabbed it because it was originally priced at P1999.00.

It took me a long time to finally post a review on these because to be honest, I had a lot of opened lippies and I don't want to have more opened lippies around waiting for it to expire. I really managed to keep these lippies sealed for long so as not to shortened its lifespan. 

Anyway, here are the shades of the lippies in the box. I managed to make some swatches before I gave some away to family and friends. I am actually decluttering our home and I learned to minimize our things, beauty products like lippies included. In the end, I just kept few for myself but here are the swatches of the lippies in the box. 





I gave away more than half of the lippies in this box to my family and friends. I have too many in stock and since I only have one lips, I need to give them away so that they won't sit in my vanity for a long time. Also, I need to give space for the new ones on the way. No, I don't have new ones though, I'm just attracting more blessings to come. 😊

I hope BDJ will still come up with beauty boxes in the future. They somehow stopped producing boxes which is sad tbh. I started my blog because there were like them where I can purchase curated boxes with new product releases to update me on what's new in the beauty industry. It's also a good startup for new bloggers or anyone who wants to review beauty products from those boxes so that they can have more content. That's what I did when I first started writing blog reviews. Now, I have more products on my sleeve and still thankful for all the opportunities now and the days to come.

Review: Legend Age Lipstick

Few months back, I got an email asking me to review this natural lip balm. When they sent me the description of the product, I became so interested to try it because of all the positive words defining it. Of course I said yes immediately. I wanted to see and try if it's really that great. 

I am so excited and all but it took a little while to receive the product because of some customs mishaps. However, it arrived in good condition despite the hot weather here in the Philippines. I was worried that the weather might make the product melt since we know that balms are made of wax and there's a tendency that it might be damaged if not packaged properly. 

I was in awe when I saw the product. From the packaging down to the effect of the product itself, I say it's completely worth it! 

What is it?!

The Legend Age Lipstick is a 4-in-1 lipstick that can be used as a moisturising lip balm, natural colour lipstick, hydrating lip mask and sunscreen with SPF. Made with beneficial natural ingredients including beeswax, Vitamin E oil and titanium oxide, this lipstick can heal cracked, chapped and dull lips. It is perfect for any gender and age and is also safe for kids and pregnant women to use.

PACKAGING - The product has a box and it's a very sophisticated bullet type lipstick packaging. It has the logo in it and a minimalist design yet very classy.

SCENT - It is totally unscented which is great. 

PRICE - From the email I got, it was mentioned that it's $30 which is available at the following websites. Legend Age Singapore | Legend Age Malaysia | Legend Age Amazon 

EFFECT - First of all, it doesn't feel sticky on my lips. No waxy feeling or what not. The effect was easily shown. From dry and pale lips to instant moisturized and pinkish lips. I love it! It is just the best balm I ever had. True to what it claims that it serves all 4 uses. Whenever I use it, my lips look like had natural tint on it. Now, I do not worry kissing my baby whenever I had this on because it is totally safe even for kids. 

Normal look of my lips

With Legend Age

Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Got it for FREE.
  • Has a lot of different uses.
  • Very safe for pregnant and lactating mothers. Safe for babies as well. 
  • Housed in a very sophisticated packaging

Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • None. I would highly recommend this to everyone.
Price: $30
Bought from: Got it for FREE.
Size: 100 ml.

As you can see, my lips was moisturized and hydrated from the after photo. It looked pinkish too! I just love the effect it gives my lips. I wear this almost everyday especially that it has SPF. I can even use this throughout the day not concerning myself in wearing lipstick anymore. I can go with my day with this alone or whenever I want my lips to breathe from other chemicals, this is my go-to. 

If you want to get one, you can purchase on these website Legend Age Singapore | Legend Age Malaysia | Legend Age Amazon. Or you can also follow me on Instagram as I will be hosting a giveaway soon with this as the prize. Amazing right? :)

For more details on how to get their product, visit their website or check their Instagram account at Legend Age. I am totally sure you will love all the good stuff on this product! 

Review: Deonat Mineral Deodorant Spray

It's been a while since I last posted a review from my purchases at Sample Room. To be honest, I've been leaving my reviews on Instagram recently and been neglecting my blog because mom life was just so busy for me. This just deserved a space on the blog because I honestly wanted to share to my readers that there are these products that are just so good. 

I got these products from Sample Room months and months ago and I honesty can't remember when. I even delayed using them because I have lots of opened product yet that I need to review so I skipped it for a while and that's my regret because I didn't found out how great it was sooner. 

These was made from ammonium alum (tawas) and natural mineral salts claiming to provide an all-day protection against sweat and odor-causing bacteria. 

PACKAGING - These products are housed in a spray type container and has 100 ml worth of product. I like spray type products because they're easy to use but I am so disappointed with these because it got stuck and doesn't want to spray at all. I had to transfer the content on a different spray to use it. 

SCENT - This is unscented which I really like. I don't know if it's adulting but the more I age, the more I didn't like scented products. Or I just prefer those light-scented ones.  

PRICE - Got this at Sample Room for free but it retails at the market for P159.00. I got the Deo Spray and the Foot Spray is free when you add it to cart. 

EFFECT - I like the deo spray as it feels so clean on my skin. It also removed some dark spots from burns and itch. I just gave birth and it gave a light effect on my skin. It also gave odor protection. My pits turned dark because of pregnancy and this really helped diminished it. 

As for the foot spray, it helps my cracked skin and made my wounds heal faster. It didn't gave off that expected sting but rather healed it more. 

Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Got it for FREE.
  • Alcohol, paraben and aluminum chlorohydrate-free
  • It gave odor-protection
  • Doesn't stain on the clothes
  • It isn't sticky

Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • Disappointed with the spray. After a few spray, it got stuck and doesn't want to spray anymore. 
Price: P159.00
Bought from: Got it for FREE. (Can be bought at Watsons)
Size: 100 ml.

Despite not having alum chlorohydrate, this still protects me from sweat and odor which is great. Plus it's very affordable too so it's definitely worth the purchase. If not for the spray, this is already perfect!

I still recommend this despite the downside on the spray because it can easily be changed. I hope you can discover the greatness of this product. 

I hope there are more products like these that's safe and affordable to use. 

Review: Colourpop's Out and About (Mixed Finish Bundle)

Long ago before I got pregnant on my second child, I bought tons of lippies from Colourpoop because it was love at first use when I bought one of their products locally. I knew then that I need to do some shopping at their website and hit the free shipping amount to make myself happy. I even chanced on free palette when I hit the free shipping amount mark. Glad I did. It was never a regret.

I bought a lot of nudes since I'm a big fan of it. From those I purchased, I got one collection which is the Out and About that has 3 different shades - Viper, Times Square and Baracuda.

From the three lippies, Viper and Times Square are matte while Baracuda has a satin fnish.

Viper - This one has a doe-foot applicator and the consistency is nice. It has a purple shade and it easily glides on the lips even if it's ultra-matte. It is long wearing too!

Times Square - This is in a nude shade and makes my lips boldly matte. This is long wearing too!

Baracuda - My fave among all three. This has a satin finish. It has an added moisture that makes my lips looking fresh and light. It's a mix of pink and red shade. The color looks great on me. However, it is not completely transfer-proof.

I love everything to be honest, but recently I declutered some of my used and unused stuff where I ended up giving a lot away. I gave away the matte ones to friends and kept the Baracuda for myself since I love the color and the finish.

I still have Colourpop lippies to share with you guys so keep on checking my post every now and then. 

Also, you can follow me on Instagram (@thecuteanddainty) for story updates and more beauty finds. 

Review: The Face Shop CC Ultra Moist Cushion

I'm not a foundie person. Ever since I liked Korean skincare and makeup, I always use cushion since then. So whenever there's a good deal on cushions, I always grab the chance to get them. So when The Face Shop had a sale on their CC Ultra Moist Cushion way waaaaay back, I just had to grab one. It came with a refill so I had more reason to get it.

I always like cushion for it is compact and very convenient to use. I can use it easily whenever I want to do touch-up at the middle of the day, even without bringing brushes or makeup sponges. 

PACKAGING - The product is housed in a box and it is in a sophisticated compact that has embossed gold details in it. The SPF was shown on the box and good thing there's an English translation on how to do the refill.

SCENT - There's no particular obvious scent but the product has a good scent once opened. 

PRICE - I remember getting it at the store. If you know me, I always score good deals online but the time I bought this, I feel a little generous to myself. HAHA. If I remember it correctly, it is priced at P1195. It already comes with a refill. 

EFFECT - I like that this has a dewy/glowy finish without the oily feel to it. The shade I got was Apricot Beige and it is the perfect shade for my skin tone. I like that it is easy to blend and hides away my imperfection such as dark spots and dark circles. It also lasted for a good couple of hours.

Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Sophisticated packaging. 
  • Compact and easy to use.
  • Has dewy/glowy finish.
  • Has a free refill.
  • Hides imperfections pretty well.

Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • A little expensive.
Price: P1195.00
Bought from: The Face Shop
Size: 15 g.

This is one of my holy grail when it comes to makeup. Korean makeup for me is really a bit expensive, compare to Western products. But I think it is all worth it because apart from getting the skin I want, there's this Korean skin feels as well. 

You? What are your favorite cushion to date? 

How Wigs Help Gain Back Confidence

They say that our hair is our crowning glory. It may be true for some but for people battling with alopecia, it's hard. 

Few months back, I remember my husband had few spots of hair loss on his head. At first, we didn't thought that it meant something. Time went by and it became bigger and bigger. It was also scattered around his head. From then on, his self-esteem went down and almost didn't want to go to work anymore. 

We found out from research that majority of the effect of it was because of stress. He seek medical help and we spent thousands for his treatment. 

My husband's case was just a simple case but I found out that a friend of a friend suffered from intense hair loss and they didn't know what to do. Also, the person can't cover the expenses for treatment and medicine. Good thing, a group of concerned people donated wigs to her. That's why she uses wigs instead. 

Different wigs are available at different online stores. From the website of Unice, front lace wigs are popular. There offer various types of wigs. There are bob wigcurly wig and some straight wigs. These are beautiful wigs that even I would want to try. But more than showcasing beauty, these wigs helps boost self-confidence to those people who have hair problems.

To be honest, I, myself would love to wear a wig too. Haven't tried it yet but I am very open in doing so in the future. More than beauty, these are tools that brings back self-confidence to people who might need help. 

Wardrobe Pieces After Pregnancy

Weeks before going back to work from my maternity leave, I tried to do Konmari on our home. It is a term about Marie Kondo's cleaning. Marie Kondo was known for her books regarding cleaning and organizing and Konmari was popularized recently as she shows how to fold clothes the proper way. While I don't do perfectly the same like hers, I just copied some parts on her technique like putting all the clothes in one place. All the types of clothing from my head covers, scarves, crop tops, my sexy rompers, dresses, jeans, shoes and basically almost everything should be put in one place. In decluttering it, I categorized each from what we want to keep, to sell secondhand, to giveaway or to trash.

So after piling all the clothes from the closet, I sorted them by getting a piece of the clothing while asking myself if it still sparks joy for me. For those clothes that has no spark at all, I toss them on the last three option, either to sell, to giveaway or to trash. I ended up keeping a little amount to myself and found a lot of items to let go. 

My reason why I did this is because we have a little to no space left and we need to make room for the new ones. I noticed that there are a lot of stuff on our closet that aren't fit for us anymore and they stayed on the closet for a couple of years already. I know that now's the time to get new ones for the people at home. For husband, the children and me. Just in time that I wanted to purchase new tops for women because we are mostly girls in the family.

And since I already cleaned and organized most of the things in our closet (even my husband's and children's), I am then trying to update our wardrobe. But of course, we'll limit our purchases to only those we need.

Here are some pieces I am considering in getting once I'm prepared to upgrade our wardrobe.

1. Tops - I need few tops to compliment my look whenever I use jeans during Friday at work since it's our wash day. It is also the most accessible option for breastfeeding or collecting milk just in case I need to collect milk stash.

2. Dresses - I am a dress-person and I like to use dresses since it's the easiest to wear for mamas like me especially if it has breastfeeding access.

3. Scarves - I like bringing a scarf because it protects me from cold, rain, sun and it can also be a great accessory in upgrading up my wardrobe.

4. Shoes / Sandals - Because I gave birth recently, I felt that my feet are bigger this time compared before I got pregnant. So it's a must for me to get another pair or two.

... and I'm thinking of a whole lot more but to be honest, I only  stick with these four because I just gave birth and it will take time for my body to go back. 

Things to Consider in Cosplaying

Few days ago, I was back to work from my maternity leave after giving birth. I gave birth last May and we had 105 days of leave before returning to work. It was an expanded leave because I only got 60 days on my firstborn. I am so thankful for the long rest days I had to cherish with my newborn because I get to spend more time with her and nurse her. A lot of my readers know that I advocate breastfeeding and you can check more of my pregnancy and parenting story on my other blog, Much Love, Mommy. 

Anyway, I prepared myself in returning to work last week. As I returned to school (I work as a junior high school teacher for those who didn't know), I met the substitute teacher for my spot who happens to be a cosplayer and a vlogger. I somehow pondered how difficult it is to start vlogging and/or cosplaying. 

I have been contemplating to try vlogging too but without the right equipment and enough time, I think it will be difficult. I will still try to gather more knowledge and time to study video editing if I wish to pursue vlogging in the future. Since I also got interested in cosplaying, I did a little research on what to do and how to start the act of cosplaying. Here are some of the first things to consider if you wish to pursue a different hobby like cosplaying.

1. Start who you want to cosplay

I am a big kpop fan and being a part of it, I attended lots of kpop functions, meetups, concerts and a whole lot more. As I attended those gatherings, I noticed that there are lots of fans who copy their idols or even the whole group they idolize from their hairstyle down to their shoes. They use natural hair wigs, or they have weave hairstyles to copy the looks they wish to copy. Some uses short lace front wigs to match the latest hair trend of the idols. Just the same in cosplaying, you have to use the same thing for that. They buy the same clothes, accessories, and shoes like the character they want to portray. In short, they copy almost everything to the character they want to cosplay. For that, some has the means to buy their costumes while others try to DIY their own.

2. Assess how much you are willing to invest

If fangirling/fanboying or cosplaying is your passion, then it is understood that you are willing to shed off cash on your stash. Buying tickets, merch, and other materials needed is a given in this field. You may also wish or need to spend on whatever materials your group endorses which requires a lot of cash. So you have to know if this is really the hobby you are willing to invest in.

3. Attend gatherings, group events that are related to fangirling/cosplaying

Broaden your experience by attending events related to what you wish to pursue. Just like what I do in blogging about beauty, I keep on attending workshops and events related to beauty which provides more learning about the field. There are those paid and unpaid workshops from different brands where I try to attend. For cosplaying, there are meetups and gathering of other cosplayers where you can attend to mingle with other people and other group. The key is to socialize with the people you have the same interest with.

Adding a hobby or two is good to add more spice in our life. Just like what I do, I write blog because it keeps me sane with motherhood. It is like an avenue for me to express myself. I also feel that someone is listening to me whenever I try to write my musings and there are people who visit my blog so than you all.
