GRAND OPENING OF SKINSTATION FLAGSHIP BRANCH IN SM MEGAMALL

SkinStation is a skin care company that utilizes science to give you the best value in skin and body solutions. The latest in cutting-edge technology are available at SkinStation and our discerning clientele get to enjoy the latest in skin care innovations through our treatment procedures, from slimming to anti-aging, whitening and firming, to our highly popular diode laser hair removal treatment, all at affordable prices and with guaranteed results.





Formerly known as Godiva Skin Station, the popular clinic chain has undergone rebranding to SkinStation under a new corporate ownership, My Sanctuary Wellness Center, Inc. Following the sale of their Godiva skin care business in 2010, founders Fred and Carleen Reyes have formed My Sanctuary Wellness Center, Inc. to run and manage the new and upgraded SkinStation.


Aside from state-of-the art equipment, SkinStation offers DERMAX, our exclusive professional skin care product line. DERMAX is formulated by SkinStation founder and CEO Fred Reyes, an award-wining chemist and recipient of the 2008 Achievement Award conferred by the Philippine Federation of Chemistry Societies, and 2011 Outstanding Professional Award in Chemistry from the Professional Regulations Commission.


As a professional line, DERMAX uses only the best, the latest and the safest ingredients at clinical strength, definitely at par with the world’s best skin care products. Before, we had cost limitations to contend with when formulating mass-market products. Now, with DERMAX, we have no such cost constraints as our only aim is to delight our customers,” declares Fred Reyes.


Overall design of SkinStation branches is tasteful and minimalist to promote relaxation, soothe the senses and calm the mind. It has individual treatment rooms for utmost privacy, which our discriminating clientele require. 




Courteous and friendly front desk personnel receive clients at the reception area. Doctors are available for consultation and doctor’s services. Aestheticians are well-trained and have years of experience in providing the best service every client deserves.


SkinStation held a press conference to launch its flagship branch at the SM Megamall last November 27, 2014 with special guest 2008 Bb. Pilipinas International/ TV Personality/ Actress Ms. Patricia Fernandez. PR guru Mr. Charlie Agatep, local media from ABS-CBN and Manila Bulletin, as well as lifestyle bloggers and members of the Mommy Bloggers Philippines attended the press conference. Afterwards, SkinStation’s ribbon-cutting ceremony and blessing was graced by SM Megamall mall management, among many other VIP attendees. SkinStation Megamall marks the skin care company’s 20th branch in the country. It is also the largest branch to date with 12 luxurious, private treatment rooms.




Now, urban sophisticates from the north, south, or central metro can get to experience the latest in skin care innovations through SkinStation’s advanced treatment procedures and DERMAX Professional product line – all at affordable prices and with guaranteed results.

Mega Food Tour 2.0

Mega Mall is one of our favorite Shopping destinations in the metro. Aside from the vicinity, this mall has a lot to offer. Specially for foodies like us. We’re lucky to be part of the last Mega Food tour for  the year and dining with 9 restaurants with Anton Diaz of our Awesome Planet is a bonus.
It’s great that SM Mega Mall came up with this idea because it’s a sure way to market their new restaurants. After all, who do you trust when it comes to restaurant recommendations but foodies or bloggers.


The tour started at 5:00 PM with 18 attendees that were grouped into two to maximize the time. Sharing with you some photos of the yummy dishes that we enjoyed last September 30. 


Ippudo. This is one of the most intriguing new restaurants at the Mega Fashion Hall having been dubbed as the Japanese restaurant who serves the best Ramen. We’ve always wanted to visit this Ippudo but the long line is kind of discouraging. We’re so glad that this is part of our tour. By the way, the chefs here at Ippudo are Japanese so if you’re looking for authentic Japanese food, then Ippudo is the right restaurant for you.  We love the spicy Ramen because of its rich flavor (tho we prefer it spicier).

Linguini Fini. We loved the ambiance. It’ll make you forget that you’re actually inside a Shopping Mall. Everything looks clean at Linguini Fini. We’re both pasta lovers and we’d love to try everything on their menu! Parpadelle “Nose to Tail Bolo” is worth trying.

Rosanjin. This is my favorite among the 9 restaurants that we visited.I loved everything that they served! Too bad Miguel has to leave for work and didn’t had the chance to eat at Rosanjin but we’ll definitley come back.

Cupcakes by Sonja. 

If you’re looking for the best red velvet cupcakes, then go visit Cupcakes by Sonja at the Ground floor of the Mega Fashion Hall. 


We had a short trip to Tim Ho Wan to taste their Pork Buns. I’ve tasted this before. I would say there’s nothing spectacular about this buns, or is it just me?


G/F Mega Fashion Hall

Eri Curry. This is a must try for curry lovers with big appetite! I couldn’t even finish their sampler or maybe I was just too full after visiting several restaurants. I would love to come back and challenge my self to finish a whole serving of their Katsu Curry.

Tripple O’s. I love their milk shake. I felt bad because I can no longer eat their sampler, good thing they offered a take-out. I got the chance to eat their sampler at work. I can’t believe their patties still taste good even after a few hours ( I ate the sampler during my lunch break ). They serve sweet potatoes instead of fries so it’s healthier and their burgers aren’t oily.

I was giddy when I saw different colors of Mochi lined up at Mochi Cream Cafe. It was mouth watering. I loved everything and was even lucky enough to take home some Mochi. Everything is picture perfect and yummy. I love their drink and their Matcha Dacquoise.

Our last stop – Kool Kids. I enjoyed watching them make Nitrogen Ice cream. I was like a kid waiting for my ice cream to be served. Kids and kids at heart will surely love Kool kids. To Nutella lovers out there, you shouldn’t miss Kool kids on your next visit to Mega Fashion Hall!

I was extremely happy after the Food tour! I met new friends and tried different restaurants in 4 hours! Now, I know which restaurants we should revisit on our next trip to Mega Mall.


Happy Eating!

Back to basics with Uniqlo

Hello, loves!




Ever since our first visit to Uniqlo (SM Aura) to buy a whole wardrobe for Migs, we can’t help but keep them in mind whenever we go shopping.





Migs wore his Uniqlo sweater when he performed last December at Republik Bar 

Last Sunday, while waiting for our movie to start, we strolled Mega Mall for some great finds and our feet lead us to Uniqlo. Uniqlo Mega Mall is as inviting as that of SM Aura’s. The shop was spacious and the lighting is perfect!






We checked out their under garment selection for some pairs of socks (we change socks every January and June of each year) and we were surprised when we saw the tag prices!5 pairs of socks for only P390.00! It was so affordable! 





Uniqlo do not put “loud” prints to their fabrics and everything are basics. Very classy. Their pieces are reminders of what every man and woman should have on their closest. 


You can find inside shirts (but can be worn as it is) for only Php 290.00, and basic tees for Php 590.
For yuppies, you’ll go crazy over different hues of office pants that you can take home for Php900 and above. 
For a more polished look, you can go for a coat that can be mixed and matched to any colors for only Php 2,990! 






For couples who are into matching clothes, Uniqlo is the perfect shop for you! You can match your clothes with your loved one without going over board with crazy prints. 



Happy shopping!
