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.

Healthy meal from Canned Mackerel + Giveaway!

We have stopped eating pork and beef at home because we are trying to lose weight at the same time, live a healthier life. Aside from chicken breasts and salmon, we also added Uni-Pak Mackerel as part of our diet.
We have tried several mackarel dishes available online but we thought of giving mackerel a little twist. Instead of making it a rice partner, we used soft tacos.
It’s healthy, easy to prepare and affordable. It’s also perfect for packed lunch or snack.

Here are the ingredients:

Onion and Chives flavored Tacos
155 grams of Uni-Pak Mackerel
Salt and Pepper
Greek Yogurt (dressing)

Here are the steps in layers:
1.Soft taco
5.Greek Yogurt
6.Cheese (optional)

Why we choose Uni-Pak Mackerel?  Aside from the yummy taste, the makers of Uni-Pak Mackerel only uses the finest mackerel available. You can tell by how their mackerel looks like – it’s in chunks.

You can follow them on their official Social Media Accounts:

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.
