The first time that I learned about Nature Essentials was from one of the bloggers that I followed. I was curious with their products that I wanted to them to be part of my upcoming birthday give-away.

When I asked if they can be one of the sponsors, they gladly said yes and they even let me tried some of their lovely products!

Nature Glow Emu Soap

I was suffering from dry skin for weeks already. The very friendly Ms. Charm, owner of Nature Essentials, told me to try their Nature Glow Emu Soap. I was hesitant because I always have a problem of using soap with my face. Miss Charm then assured me that the soap won’t peel my skin.

When I get home and used it, there was no painful reaction. Usually, my skin gets irritated with facial soap. I love the smell of the soap! I’m such a fan of products with Emu and I’m happy that most of Nature Essentials items contain Emu.

I have been washing my face with this soap for a week already and it hasn’t drying since then. Hooray!

Pores Confidence

Sadly, I have big pores issue on my face. This serum from Nature Essentials makes pores look smaller (which what I need!) and it prevents pimple break outs.

My face enjoys the cooling effect after applying the serum. It’s not sticky and it easily absorbs in my skin. Highly recommended!

Lip and Cheek Tint

If you want a long lasting blush on, definitely this cheek tint is a must have! I was in the office when I first put this tint on my cheek and I had high hopes of removing it with wet wipes but it didn’t vanish! Awesome!
However, if you are looking for a long lasting colored lip, this tint won’t guarantee you. It brings life to your lips but only for few hours. What’s nice with this lip tint though is it made from tomato that every time you taste it, you won’t stop!

Thank you to Miss Charm of Nature Essentials!

When the news went out that Gloc 9, Yeng Constatino and Rico Blanco will be having a concert, I jumped for joy. Yes I should watch it and no I won’t miss it!

A week before the concert (November 21, 2014 at Araneta Coliseum), I was already had a doubt that I will see it because of insufficient money. I joined several contests and luckily I won tickets. Yay!

Thank you to Yahoo.Ph for the opportunity! I expected to get only two tickets but I received five concert tickets, awesome right?

Tickets!!!

My friend and I entered in Araneta Coliseum by seven in the evening because tickets were intended for the upper box section.

It was almost nine when the concert began. The three started the show with their wonderful opening performance with the mash up of Time In, Antukin at Sumayaw Ka.

Gloc 9 and Rico Blanco sang ‘Magda’ afterwards.

Yeng Constatino’s solo performance set the mood of the concert goers.

Her famous songs like Jeepney, Chinito, Habang Buhay and newest single ‘Ikaw’ made the people sang their heart out.

I love Yeng’s new hair style and color; it fitted her and her cute outfits!

Yeng and Gloc 9 collaborated with ‘TakipSilim’ which I enjoyed a lot because Yeng belted so well.

Gloc 9 then owned the spotlight with Upuan, Heartless and he even sang some of Francis M hits like Kaleidoscope World and Meron Akong Ano.

The audience bangs their head when Rico Blanco took the stage with his songs like Posible, Yugto, My Universe and we sang together with Rivermaya’s known singles like Elisi, 214, Kisapmata and You’ll Be Safe.

Yeng and Rico serenaded the people with their rendition of ‘Stay’ originally sung by Rihanna.

‘Salamat’ was their farewell song to their fans that had an epic night watching the three of the most sought after singers today!

Whoever thought of having Yeng, Gloc-9 and Rico Blanco in one concert was amazing! I’m happy that I didn’t miss their performance; it is my favorite concert for this year!


I seldom buy cosmetic products. Most of the times, I got it for free or my mother and sister just gave something to me.

If you take a peek with my make-up bag, they are several items that you will find yet there are only five that stands out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My Top 5 favorite make-up brands and items today:
*Revlon Serenite Color Stay Eye Shadow
I simply love the colors of this palette! My eyes look classy whenever I use it!
*Canmake Creamcheek (CL03)
This is the only blush-on that I enjoy using so far. It blends so well with my cheek and stays long!
*Estee Lauder Pure Color (Blackened Sapphire)
My all time favorite make-up! I’m loyal to black eyeliner but when I met this shade, I became an instant fan!
*Burt’s Bee Rose Tinted Balm
If you are quite scared like me in using lipstick, this lip balm is the one you are looking for! It is already enough to give life to my lips, no need for lipstick.
*Lancome Galateis Douceur
I highly recommended this make-up remover! It is truly gentle in cleansing my face especially my eyes.

I’m not a beauty and make-up blogger but I’d love to share the current products I’m using.

One of the latest daily prerequisite on my bathroom rack is the Macadamia Natural Oil. Thank you to Piandre Salon and Miss Sarah Tirona of Fashion Eggplant for the opportunity to try this lovely brand.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Set has Rejuvenating Shampoo, Moisturizer Rinse/Conditioner, Healing Oil Treatment and Reviving Curl Cream. I only got the travel set bag and I’ve been using it for almost a now.

What I like with the Macadamia Natural Oil:
*Color Safe, Sulfate Free and Paraben Safe
*Smells so good
*Love the packaging

*The brown color sparkling shampoo turns into black (It just shows how dirty my hair is.)
*Hair oil is not greasy and lasts long

Shampoo

What I didn’t like with the Macadamia Natural Oil:
*White flaky is still visible on my scalp
*Scent doesn’t last long
*One bottle of conditioner is insufficient (I’m using the 2nd piece now and I still haven’t open the other Shampoo bottle)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Conditioner

Will I buy it?

Perhaps not because I don’t think it is the right brand for my crowning glory.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Oil

Will I recommend it?
Yes for those who are still looking for the perfect bath essentials for them.
