Real Positivity with EcoParadise Products at Hotel H20’s Zenyu Ecospa

EcoParadise Products at Hotel H20 Zenyu EcoSpa

Positivity — an optimist’s mantra. But at Hotel H20’s Zenyu EcoSpa, there are products that promotes negative to eliminate the positive and get a positive effect. These are EcoParadise products, directly imported from Japan — cushion pads, bed sheets, pads, plastic wares, ceramics, and a detergent powder. How can one get a positive effect from these seemingly ordinary products? Through negative ions. An ion, as Wikipedia puts it is an atom or molecule. It is something that we take in everyday, from everything. Our body reacts to the air we breath, the food we eat, the place we move in and the life we live in.

NIVEA Philippines Launches NIVEA for Men Multi-Effect 8 Products

Growing in a female-dominated family, I learned to used skin care products at an early age. Astringent was one of those I applied on my face which became frequent in my adolescence in an attempt to eliminate pimples. In those days, all skin care products are marketed for women. It was only recently that we are seeing the growth of products for men. Last week, NIVEA Philippines introduced their line of products with the Multi-Effect 8 benefits to a group of bloggers. I have been using the brand’s facial wash and lotion. I was partial to their whitening variant for that extra SPF protection, plus the hope of regaining the fairness that I possess in my younger days (I wish). Last August 23rd, I joined other bloggers for the NIVEA for Men Multi-Effect 8 Challenge at the 360 Fitness Center in Makati. The event included a glimpse to the gym’s circuit ...

The Fight Against the Big C

Last night I received an email from a customer. She apologized for taking time to get back to me and pay for the remaining balance of her order. She shared that she was diagnosed with breast cysts. I was saddened by the news. These kind of information affects me greatly because my mother also went through a similar ordeal. Mom at work In the late 90s, my mom felt a lump in her right breast. As the breadwinner in our family, she ignored it for sometime then decided to have a check up at the East Avenue Medical Center. But the first time was not such a pleasant experience. She was told that she has to be re-examined. Just like everybody else, she was worried. Worried about the results, but I think even more worried that she had to skip work. The doctor’s reply scared her away and the test ...
