Unilab Products I Can't Go Without!

As a medical practitioner and a Mom, I always update myself with the current medical trends to keep abreast. I always believe that prevention is the key to combat impending illnesses. 

In a tropical country like the Philippines- diseases from virus and bacterial in origin marks an increased case of sickness in all demographics. As we enter the rainy season we should be on the alert with symptoms that our family members will exhibit. We should be in a bubble where we can protect ourselves. 

In the market today, there are a lot of over the counter drugs that we can rely on when symptoms and diseases strike. I always go for the trusted brand UNILAB

Did you know that there are over 1,000 UNILAB products that are sold in the market today? And, these products were tested and checked by 3,000 experts. We can say that we are using the safest and trusted brand for our family.

Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid Review

We love to cook at home! I started to learn how to cook when I was nine years old and it became one of my hobbies. Who wouldn't want a good meal prepared and cooked at home, right?  The kitchen can be a messy corner of the house after each cooking and a good dishwashing liquid is a must-have must in every kitchen household.

I know Mommy's like me never forgets to include their favorite brand of dishwashing agent on their grocery list, whether it is in a bottle or sachet containers. The basic necessity for a kitchen to have.

As a frugal Mom experimenting and trying out products I can use that is also money-saving and economical and also best for my hand are my go-to brands. I have tried and tested different brands for dishwashing until I came up with my current brand of use. 

A couple of weeks ago I received an email for a product review. After a study of the product background, I confirmed my participation as one of the bloggers who can try and test this new dishwashing brand.

I was sent three bottles of 270ml Bubble Man Dishwashing liquid in Antibac, Kalamansi and Lemon variant for me and my family to try out.

Bubble Man Dishwashing is manufactured by Mikewell World of Household Products and claims to be a non-toxic and eco-friendly product. 

"A proudly PINOY made budget-friendly, highly effective kitchen, food premises cleaner and degreaser, safe on virtually all surfaces." 

I got curious from what I've read that Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid's Mabilis Banlawan, Banayad sa Kamay. True enough because after using it for a week I don't have that trouble of rinsing off those greasy plates including cookware. From those bubbles, it leaves a squeaky feel leaving each plate and pans clean. Also, giving my hands a soft... no more dry and flaky hands after use.

Out of the three variant Bubble Man Antibac is my favorite because of the ocean beach scent! My 11-year-old daughter who loves washing plates also gave me her two cents about the brand, and when I asked her she voted for Kalamansi scent as her favorite amongst the three.

I recommend this brand not because I got it for free, but because it is economical, budget-friendly, easy rinse and most specially bio-degradable. 

Give it a try and who knows you might switch to this brand the minute you try it.

Review on Tony Moly Tony Tint Delight

When will I learn, no matter how I try...I am not good and okay with lip tints!
I went with my impulsive self again when I purchased this tube of Tony Moly Tony Tint Delight over at Althea Korea Ph. My blogger friend asked me if I wanted some items at the site so we can purchase items in one shipping. She had some items on her cart and needed a few more to reach the minimum amount of order to get the free shipping. Since I have some items on her that she will be sending me, I decided to grab the chance and experience another beauty online shopping site. 

One of the items was this Tony Moly Tony Tint Delight tube Php150 per tube on a sale price, I thought of getting this several times because lip tints aren't my thing. But, yeah the impulsive-self made me do it haha! 
Here is my personal review for this.
Tony Moly Tony Tint Delight in clear tubing, black twistable cap. I love how chic and simple the bottle design. 
It took us a week for the package to be delivered as stated on the site it will be ship from Korea, taking note of all items are made from Korea. I was kind of excited about this one!
The head of the cap has this heart shape which is so cute!
It has a soft brush applicator which glides smoothly, but the amount of the tint is too much when applied, giving the tint a smudged look. Also, the color is so different from the websites sample color. It doesn't match my skin tone. I am the one to blame here.

When I dabbed the tint at the back of my hand it gave me this glossy bright red color. And because it is a tint lip color it needed to leave a stain color to serve its purpose. 
Rubbed off several times using a dry tissue and this is what I got. A tint mark from the tested amount applied. It looked good when this was applied at the back of my hand by on my lips it's a different thing. I will insert a photo of me using this product after I locate that selfie I took from my phone. 
The tint separated colors from my lips leaving a darker red on my outer lip line and a light shade of red in the inner lip. This is normally my issue about tints, it doesn't cover the full lips. 

After I tested the tint once I have no plans on using it again, might give it away to a friend who wants it.
Again, this is my personal take on the product Tony Moly Tony Tint Delight, the product was bought by my own money and review is 100% mine. 

I know some girls are into tints and lucky them! :)

Vitress Hair Solutions Cuticle Coat

I am into hair care products lately, I always grab chances to score some hair care products online which I can try for my self and later on stick with it. 

I purchased a bottle of Vitress Hair Solutions cuticle coat over at thinking it might work wonders for my hair. 
Although I have tried a couple of time this brand in a different preparation, I was quite confident with this one. 
Vitress hair solution bottle, it looks like a giant pill.

Removing the red cap comes the squeeze/pump plunger.

This is how the content looks like. Oil-based, clear solution.
The product's manufacturer, Splash cosmetics.

Also at the back where the instructions can be found and other details.

We go now to my review. The very first thing I noticed about this product was the scent. If you can check and see the photo with the sample at the back of my hand, the strong coconut scent was very evident. It was too strong for me to like. Also, when I applied the oil to my hair it left me a sticky feel plus the scent that I don't like. It over-powered the scent of the shampoo and conditioner I've used that day. 

I like my hair fresh and smooth when I go out of the house. I will never use the product again for this main reason. If you like a coconut scent base for hair products you will like this and also I think this is best for dry hair. 
I'm glad I only got this in a sample bottle size.

The BIG Move!

For the past several weeks I got busy with planning, preparing and BOXING our things for the BIG move that happened last Saturday. 

We stayed for more than four years from this 2-story apartment to this 2nd-floor bungalow type apartment within the City. We went to the opposite direction from where we used to live. The old place keeps on adding up to issues that I personally can't bear. I felt like the "home" was not a home anymore because it was becoming my stress factor already. 

I planned to stay there for one more year until my daughter finishes grade school, but due to some reasons, I decided for us to move and look for a better and comfortable place to live. 

House hunting was so stressful too. Trying to match our monthly budget to the house and apartments we liked and offered was kind of depressing at one point. Until we rode our bikes and landed to this place. A newer, quieter and elevated which was my biggest concern because of the City's flood problem issue which we were very much affected. Looked for trucking service a couple of days before the day of the move, a good thing for Facebook pages I found one! 
            The truck that I rented for the service for Php1,300.
                        photo grabbed from JTS Lipat Bahay Olongapo 

It took us a week of boxing all our stuff that needs to go with us and took me 3/4 of the stuff I need to give up. I was overwhelmed when I saw our things piled up. I never and couldn't imagine that we owned and had so many things at home. My kids gave up they toys and dolls, clothes and shoes and the rest that they won't be using anymore. I gave up more than half of my things, mainly clothes that I had when I was three or four sizes down...well, my hopes were so high when it comes to managing my weight. I also gave up bags, accessories, new shoes, and sandals, perfumes, and colognes that were open and tested and did not use after, also some kitchen tools and appliances.
Why have all that? The new place we got is a little bit smaller than the old one especially the bedrooms where we used to have built-in closets. I know we can manage this thing later on... the positive me always sets-in when it comes to this situation. :)

Saturday last week was the BIG day for us. We started early in the morning of that day and we finished transferring our boxes, appliances, and furniture in three-hours. The new place became crowded when the last box was placed. I was glad that everything was moved and transferred properly. Nothing was broken or damaged. I did not take any pictures of the move because my mind was so focused on my plan (sorry for this). 

It has been three days already and still unboxing things and setting it on corners that can fit. 
There were some adjustments and also some replacements of services that we looked for the next day. Such as delivery service for water supply for drinking, LPG service delivers, locating the nearest garbage bin disposal and made a set of key duplicates for all of us. Everything was managed according to what I perceived and imagine.

Yesterday, when I got home from work I was able to take some pictures of the house and some selfies too with my daughter. The house looks bright especially in the morning and the neighborhood is generally calm. A big shout-out to my youngest brother who helped us for several days until the day of moving, also to Ed and his son and to JTS trucking service who came an hour early to pick us up. 
We still have to figure out some things needed for the house and it will be ready for our friends and guests to visit soon! 

We have a bar set that the landlady used to own and we decided to borrow it for the meantime since I have bottles of wine and liquor from years back that needed a place to stay. We set-up the bar last Sunday and it looked perfect in my eyes. I need more glasses!
