Athena and Crave Healthy from Unilab

Happy New Year, everyone! I missed  sharing new discoveries with you. Migs and I have been very busy the past few months and I never got the chance to update our blog.

If you have been following us on Instagram, you already know that we are pregnant! Yay! It was the best Wedding anniversary gift.  Part of my pregnancy preparation was drinking lots and lots of milk everyday.  I choose Athena over other milk brands because of the following reasons:

*High Calcium essential for optimum bone health. It is also a source of Vitamins D and K, Magnesium and Phosphorus – nutrients to help maintain strong bones
*Low in Fat so you can enjoy this beverage without the risk of high caloric intake

*Source of Anti-oxidants such as Vitamins A & E and Zinc to help maintain healthy skin and promote optimum immune function

I felt that Athena was especially formulated to meet my special nutritional needs plus, it’s yummy (my personal favorite is their Choco flavor)!

Athena comes in two flavors – Milk (180 grams – Php 130.00; 400 grams – Php 273.00) and Choco (180 grams – Php 130.00). It’s available online at www.athena.com.ph and in-store at Mercury Drugstore, Watsons, and Southstar.

If you are also pregnant, there’s healthy way to satisfy hunger and food cravings! I have recently discovered Crave Healthy – the first snack product in the Philippines that is specifically designed for the pregnant woman by doctors and nutritionists.

It’s NUTRITIOUS because it contains essential nutrients – Folic Acid, Iron, and Calcium that are critical for both the mom and her growing baby. It also has reduced salt and just the right amount of calories that give the pregnant woman that extra energy she needs daily.
It’s DELICIOUS because it tastes just like her regular snack. Crave Healthy is currently available in Sweet Corn flavor and does not have any aftertaste of nutrient fortifications. It helps support the nutritional needs of pregnant women and our  developing fetus.

A pack of Crave is worth Php 25.00 at 30 grams each. It’s available online at www.cravehealthysnacks.com, select Med Express branches, and select Robinsons Supermarket outlets.

I have so many things that I would love to share with you guys but, I’ll just save those for my next article!

XO,

National Pampering Day 2017

Visiting a Nailaholics Salon and Spa branch is something that I always look forward to. Comfy seats, spacious salon, skilled nailed technician and excellent customer service are the perfect formula for relaxation. Who doesn’t love being pampered once in a while?

The National Pampering Day got off to a good start last year where Nailaholics offered free manicure service and a stress relieving hand massage from 10AM to 12NN on their branches nationwide. This year, everyone will be treated to a free service of their choice: a soothing manicure, calming foot spa or relaxing foot massage.

Quoting Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa, “We Filipinos are very hardworking in any given aspect of our lives and a nation of energetic and industrious people best deserves real pampering once in a while. This year, as Nailaholics celebrates the 2nd National Pampering Day, we go deeper and dedicate this to everyone and remind them to take it slow, take it easy, zone out and relax for a while”.

Nailaholics and one of the most beloved lacquer brand in the world, O.P.I., National Pampering Day 2017 will accommodate more guests with the extension of pampering time until 1PM.  The best thing about this year’s National Pampering Day is that it will support World Vision, The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and Save Philippine Seas.

Head down to any Nailaholics Nail and Salon Spa Branch on October 17, Tuesday from 10AM to 1PM and get yourself a relaxing service. Nailaholics currently have more than 50 branches nationwide, including Gateway Mall, Eastwood City Walk, Cash and Carry Makati, Harbor Point Mall Subic, SM Cebu, SM Bacolod, and SM Lanang.

Ian Veneracion takes on new role as advocate of a multivitamin brand

United Laboratories, Inc. (UNILAB) officially welcomes multifaceted celebrity Ian Veneracion as the newest addition to
their roster of brand ambassadors. Veneracion, who currently stars as the male lead in ABS-CBN’s primetime show ‘A
Love to Last,’ has been chosen to advocate for Conzace, the number one prescribed brand for multivitamin plus minerals
by general practitioners and dermatologists in the country.
“It is an honor and privilege to be part of the UNILAB family for its multivitamin brand, Conzace,” proclaims Veneracion
while adding, “I am grateful for this opportunity, and I strongly believe that the product can be beneficial to millions of
Filipinos as it has been beneficial to me.”

According to Conzace assistant product manager Mike Jimenez, the addition of Veneracion is a perfect match for the
brand. “Ian is the epitome of superior immunity and good looks,” he says.

Jimenez elaborates on the actor and the product’s connection. “Conzace’s clinically-proven ZACE formulation, an
acronym for Zinc, Vitamins A, C, and E, makes it the number one multivitamin and minerals product prescribed by
General Practitioners and Dermatologists. The same can be said about our brand ambassador, Ian, whose credibility
allows him to ace his craft with one successful teleserye and movie after another.”

THE FACE OF CONZACE

People born in the late ‘70s would remember Veneracion as the cute and charming Jeffrey Laperal, the son of Joey de Leon in the 1982 sitcom ‘Joey and Son.’ From then on, he went to appear in more television projects while simultaneously making films that range from comedy to drama to action. Among his most recent work is the internationally acclaimed psychological thriller, ‘Bliss,’ and a Filipino independent supernatural horror film, ‘Ilawod.’

Now at 42, Veneracion has again endeared himself to today’s generation as Engineer Antonio “Anton” Noble IV, the dashing, separated with three kids guy who falls in love with another broken soul. And of course before, as Eduardo Buenavista in the 2015 remake of ‘Pangako Sa Yo,’ the role that regained Veneracion’s fame and his career to leading man stature. And then there’s that totally different side of Veneracion that is separate from showbusiness. Apart from being an actor, he is also a painter, an athlete, a pilot, a chef, and a family man—the last being his favorite role to play.

But to be all that, Veneracion needs a multivitamin and minerals that will help him cope, not just with his busy schedule, but with the different roles that he has to play in life. “I need strong immunity as well as healthy skin and hair, I cannot afford to get sick, and look stressed—I am glad I have Conzace to give me all that and more.”

THE ZACE EFFECT

Compared to other multivitamins, Conzace has the highest levels of ZACE combined. All these elements play different roles in one’s well-being. “This unique formulation in Conzace creates a synergistic effect that is clinically proven to help boost immunity, promote healthy skin and hair, and assist in wound healing as it speeds up skin regeneration,” says Jimenez.

Veneracion, speaking from experience, explains it better: “It’s the little things that we don’t normally notice, like for example, stronger resistance against colds and flu, better and clearer skin, shinier and healthier hair. It will do amazing things; you can do more and be more for yourself, for your family, for your work without being disrupted.

“I believe that if you are healthy inside, it just comes out. It reflects physically—in your hair and in your skin. And in the line of job that I am in, it is quite important that I don’t just don’t look good but really be healthy,” Veneracion concludes.

Who is Sanicare’s First Brand Ambassador?

The Sanicare Hygiene Care Circle event happened yesterday, July 25, 2017 at The Makati Diamond Residences.

Sanicare gathered the country’s top Mommy Bloggers to talk about cleanliness and hygiene for the family. Attendees were also taught new household hacks using different Sanicare products. The full product line was introduced to everyone. It also paved way to the launching of the first ever brand ambassador for Sanicare, Bianca Gonzales – Intal.

Bianca has been a long time user of Sanicare and as what the Sanicare Marketing Director Ms. Lea Sio Pacis said, “Bianca represents the moms of today.”

Mommies got to enjoy different activities, headed by Three Mommy bloggers, Frances Sales, Shari Macainag, and Sarah Tirona.  Amongst the three booths, my favorite is the Kitchen where I learned that Sanicare’s Jumbo Kitchen Towel can actually be used as a Coffee filter.  It’s amazing how a soft Kitchen towel can be so durable even when wet.

My Top 5 Favorite Sanicare Products:

1. Disposable Toilet Seat Cover. I do not like seating in public toilets. So, instead of squatting which is also unhygienic, I always carry with me a pack of toilet seat covers.  It’s so convenient to use plus it’s biodegradable so, you can flush it in the toilet and it won’t clug!

2. Interfolded Hand Towel. I can’t leave without tissue and I do not use tissue rolls whenever I pee because I feel that some substances are being left out. Whether inside the car, our home office, kitchen and bathroom – you will always see a pack of Sanicare interfolded tissue. It comes in 1 ply 175 pulls and 2 ply 150 pulls. It’s made from 100% virgin pulp with no artificial whiteners and elemental chlorine.

3. Sanicare Baby Wipes. I am choosy when it comes to wipes. Some brands leave a sticky feeling after use unlike Sanicare. I even use it on my face especially during long travels. It’s so refreshing to use.  It’s also enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. It is also gentle because it’s alcohol and paraben free which makes it safe for everyday use.

4. Sanicare Jumbo Cotton Balls. I hate tiny cotton balls. I feel like I’m being tricked because they sure look many when packed but one ball isn’t enough to use. So, you end up using three balls.  These jumbo cotton balls are not just made for babies, you can even use it for your toner. Its size is perfect for covering more surface and area coverage.

5. Sanicare Baby Underpads. I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m adding this to my favorites because this will make every mom’s life so much better. Who likes to keep dirty underpads on their baby bags? NONE! Sanicare Baby Pads has silky soft surface that won’t irritate your baby’s skin and a leak proof barrier to contain all the mess from leaky diapers.

Check out Sanicare‘s official website for the complete list of their products.  With the new products presented to us on the Sanicare Hygiene Care Circle event, Sanicare again proved that they always make sure to meet the different needs of the local market while remaining uncompromising in its promise of providing excellent products.

Budget-Friendly Father’s Day Celebration

Celebrations doesn’t always have to break the bank. I remember making Father’s day cards with my sisters when we were still little. My father still kept those cards on his old attache case (briefcase). One of our super cheap gifts to him, a hand grip that we purchased using our daily allowance is still in good shape. I honestly never saw my father use those. LOL! But keeping them on his cabinet for more than 20 years meant so much to me and my sisters.

2017 will be my father’s second year of celebrating Father’s day without my mother. In times like this, I know that he would rather see us, his children than go somewhere else. He’s not the type who prefer lavish celebrations so, I plan to throw a simple BBQ party for him at his house in Antipolo. Backyard BBQ is not just an event but a way of life for him! It has always been one of his favorite activities.

But of cousre, checking in a nice hotel within the metro with a relaxing one hour massage is still an option. I am eyeing for a nearby hotel (probably in Ortigas Center or Eastwood City) since we want to avoid the hideous weekend traffic. This reminded me of my travelbook.ph membership. So many hotels to choose from and the best part is, I do not need a credit card to book a room since I have the option to pay at the hotel. Safe and convenient booking, just like what my father would prefer.

Father’s day is just on the horizon. What are your plans? This special day is the best time to show your Dad your appreciation for what he is – the best father in the whole world! A sincere thank you or even just a big hug would mean a lot to him but adding an extra effort won’t hurt…after all, our fathers had sacrificed a lot for us.

Let us know how you’d like to celebrate Father’s day with you Daddy/Tatay/Papa/Pops on the comments section below. We’d love to hear from you too!

Happy father’s day to all the amazing fathers out there!

 

Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder Review + Giveaway

We all know that Baby powder is essential in a household especially if you have kids. Not only that it helps your kids smell fresh even under the sun but it also prevents nappy rash and chafing.  As an adult, I still enjoy using baby powder before going to sleep. It makes me feel more relaxed and fresh.

I am picky when it comes to the products that we use at home. I don’t settle for affordable products that I am not 100% sure are safe to use especially on a child’s delicate skin. I only go for products that are crafted with the utmost care for the whole family. I always believe that we shouldn’t always be complacent with products that we are accustomed to use.

Here in the Philippines, most baby powders (if not all) contain TALC, an ingredient that has been the subject of debate and lawsuits in the US because of its supposed link to cancer. It has yet to be proven true but it always pays to be safe than sorry. Are you willing to take chances or, are you just as careful as I am?

BELO BABY TALC-FREE POWDER is the answer to our dilemma of finding the perfect Baby powder. The Belo Baby Guarantee ensures you of meticulous care with its Bath & Body products having all-natural ingredients and 0% harsh chemicals. It is made from certified natural and finely milled rice and maize. It’s carefully formulated without talc, gluten, phthalates, parabens, dyes, and most common allergens.

Why do I choose BELO BABY TALC-FREE powder? First off, it is always a good act to support locally made products. It comes with a very cute packaging that already includes a soft puff which makes it economical and easier to apply. If your family loves to travel, then this could be your best friend. The scent is not too strong, so your kids can still use their favorite cologne if they prefer to. It’s crafted with care for the most delicate skin and for the most meticulous mom. We all want to have peace of mind when using a product so, it’s just right to choose only a hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested powder. I am confident with the brand because they’ve been in the Skin Care industry for a long time. Even Scarlet Belo, uses BELO BABY TALC-FREE powder. That for me is enough to trust their brand. They wouldn’t allow their precious angel to use it if it’s not safe.

Are you also a fan of the super adorable Scarlet Snow Belo? Well, I bet you’ll enjoy watching her new commercial. Check it out and share away!

We also want you to be able to try the product for free. Because we are feeling generous, we are giving away BELO BABY TALC-FREE POWDER to three lucky readers. It will be delivered to your doorstep all you have to do is follow the easy steps posted on our Facebook Page!

Belo Baby Talc-free Powder is now available in leading supermarkets and department stores nationwide. Get it for only Php219.75 (65g).
You can also buy now here: https://tackthis.co/shop/Belo/category/belo-baby and enjoy FREE delivery until May 31 with a minimum purchase.
