Splurge and Save with Proactiv Solutions

Proactiv Solution Promo

If you’re like me, I spend over a thousand pesos on skin care products. Nope, I’m no vain person, I just learned the importance of taking care of my skin at an early age. Growing up with women around me, I saw how my mom and aunts did their best to care for their skin. So when I was in my teens, they would always remind me to avoid oily foods and chocolates to avoid worsening those pimple breakouts which is normal for growing kids. I was also reminded to wash my face before I go to sleep. I remember one of my classmates in high school who had a lot of acne; everyone would tease him as “moon face” and we would all laugh. As years passed me by, the regular facial regimen was lost in the middle of the busy schedules and all. At one point I became ...

This is such an “in-your-face” declaration from the skin care company. I mean, we all have heard how chocolates causes pimples.

I’m a keloid former and I fear that if an acne would get worse it can form into a keloid. I totally don’t want that to happen so I listen to what the oldies said. Unfortunately, the link between chocolates and acne is considered a myth. I was fooled and I ...

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 ...
