Congratulations Human Heart Nature Olongapo on it's 3rd Year!

Sorry for the super late post. This was supposed to be posted hours after the event but I had problems with Blogger photo attachment + our City of Olongapo was hit by a massive flood last Monday and we are still recovering from it. 

I just got home from Human Heart Nature Olongapo September - October Magalogue turn-over plus a simple anniversary celebration.
Friends, customers and dealers of HHN Olongapo

Ms.Luisa- HHN Customer Care Specialist did a small presentation about the new line of products. 

While the presentation was on-going sample products that was introduced were being tested my attendees. 

New scent of HHN feminine wash in Powder cool scent. Their newest addition to their line of feminine wash.
They also have this HHN kids 100% Natural bath soap in chocolate scent... Kids will definitely enjoy the lavish chocolate scent of this bath soap. In fact, I bought one for my daughter and she is excited to use it tonight when she shower. 
She loves how this soap looks and specially the chocolate scent.. :)

HHN Overnight Elixir with 9 Activ Oil Nutritives (Rosehip Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Passion Fruit Seed Oil, Soybean Oil, Avocado Oil, Natural Vit.E, Lavender Oil, Elemi Oil and Rosemary Oil) 100% Natural and Clinically tested. 

Sample bottle which the guests were able to test the product.
Testing a few drops of the Elixir.
Four drops of this elixir oil is enough to work overnight. 

I check for the consistency of the oil and how the absorption was, I was surprised how it was quickly absorbed, leaving no-messy and greasy feel.

Updated iOs 7.0 done!

My iPad2 finished the update for the iOs 7.0 this morning before i left work. My son updated his iPhone5    
in synch with the time in the US. He left the WiFi on the whole night until the update was done on his iP5. 
Now it's time to check and get used to  the new updates. First I can't find my usual button i always use to adjust the screen light. I normally double click the home button and swipe it rightside and the button adjustment will appear now it's gone. Plus the background photo zoomed in and it won't fit the whole screen.
Lastly, for now i need to convert the color background. It's all white... lol.

I can see all post in social media would be about this iOs7 update, will update the iPad3 later when I get home. 

Did you update yours already? How are you loving it so far?

Human Heart Nature Olongapo 3rd Anniversary Thanksgiving Giveaway

Human Nature is a social enterprise brand of natural & organic personal care and makeup products. 
100% no harmful chemicals. 100% Philippine-made. Unbelievably affordable. 

"Human ♥ Nature was created by Anna Meloto-Wilk and Camille Meloto, two of the daughters of Tony Meloto, founder of Gawad Kalinga (GK). GK has already transformed more than 2,000 slums in the Philippines and in world into beautiful, peaceful communities that are on their way to becoming productive too....

Our vision is that as soon as GK villages are capable of producing our ingredients to the highest standards, we will equip and empower them to grow and process what we need for our products. We make sure that our ingredients can be sustainably grown in the Philippines by local farmers who are able to produce ingredients that meet international standards.

In simple terms, natural products are those whose ingredients are processed with absolutely NO synthetic chemicals. We all see the damage chemicals do to our environment. The only way to be certain that our families are 100% safe is not to use chemicals at all. So if natural products are so good, why don’t more people buy them? Because most natural and organic products are so expensive that only a few can afford them. Yet now, for the first time in the Philippines, natural and organic personal care products are affordable! 

We also want to invest in Philippine-grown products because we are firm believers in our country and our people. Filipinos are some of the most hard-working and inventive people in the world, given the right environment. Producing world-class Philippine products is our way of loving our country and lifting many Filipinos out of poverty.

Human Nature is about loving the Philippines, loving the environment and loving our families as we provide only the safest and purest world-class ingredients for them. These are effective AND affordable natural and organic personal care products that feel as good on your skin as they do in your heart. We hope that you will find a sense of peace and purpose knowing that your everyday choices have a positive impact on our country and our planet."

Nichido Eyelash Defining Mascara

Nichido Eyelash Defining Mascara

Last Tuesday I decided to grab a tube of mascara to replace the one I am using. I have been using Avon lengthening mascara for several months now, it was a gift to me from the US, it started to dry up and so hard to apply. Mostly, a tube of mascara can be use within six months time after opening and specially depends on how you use it.

After checking out products and prices of different brands at Watson's store at Harbor Point I decided to get Nichido Eyelash Defining Mascara because of the price and the brush from the tester tube. This is my first time to be using this brand and you know the feeling of first-time use, you get that excite

    Nichido Eyelash Defining Mascara

Me being so practical with every purchase I make, the amount is my main concern when buying stuff, specially with make-ups.
I needed a new tube for my daily use so I don't need a pricey one. ;)

       Not so big bristle brush in color black, just enough to cover those lashes.

Php130.00 at Watson's Harbor Point Mall

So far I have been using it for a couple of days now and I am satisfied with the after application, it lasted the whole day without smudge and clump. 
It was easily removed by using Human Heart Nature Sunflower oil that I always use as my make-up remover. 
Also an  alternative to mascara products - you can read about the latest eyelash serums such as Lash Boost, that can give you permanent lash growth. I would be willing to try this product if given a chance.
