Did you know that on average, people experience about 18 hours of total sun exposure per week just by doing a regular daily routine? Olay Regenerist Whips UV gives you the freedom to face the sun.

Olay Regenerist Whip now with UV protection to give you freedom to glow all out even under the sun Did you know that on average, people experience about 18 hours of total sun exposure per week just by doing a regular daily routine? Olay research says that this is equivalent to the same amount of sun exposure we get when at the beach. Unfortunately, 1 out of 3 women beg off from using SPF daily because of the sticky texture, especially in the humid Philippine weather. In case you missed out on the big news, UV rays are the cause of sun damage and you can get it whether you’re indoor or outdoor, even during sunny or rainy days. This is exactly why sunscreen is highly recommended to be used every day as there’s no escaping from these UV rays even if the sun is hidden. Olay redefines UV protection with the all-new Whips UV SPF 30 - so you can bid goodbye to your greasy sunscreen and enjoy the double benefit of a hydrated skin and sun protection. This breakthrough facial moisturizer offers the best of both worlds – protection and hydration. Olay Whip SPF 30 shields your skin against the sun’s harmful rays while giving it full, natural coverage. Its lightweight formula gives matte finish which lasts from day to night. The best part about Olay Whips is its unique formulation with Active Rush Technology, which means that this moisturizer holds 1000x its weight in hydration, transforming from cream to liquid at first contact to allow fast absorption with breathable feel. No grease, no stickiness, and no white cast left behind the skin. If you’re obsessed about skincare, then this will seal the deal for you. This moisturizer is packed with tried and tested Olay power ingredients: Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) that boosts cell turnover and strengthens skin barrier for defense against pollution and weather; Advanced Amino-peptide complex for anti-aging benefit for a firmer and a more lifted look; and Hyaluronic Acid which is responsible in retaining the water within your cells so the skin is kept hydrated all day long. Olay Regenerist Whips UV gives you the freedom to face the sun. Plus, it saves you from the longer skincare prep time in the morning. Every time you step out of the house, you don’t need to worry about premature skin aging, and you can simply focus on flaunting your smoother, younger, and shine-free skin – more reasons to glow all out even under the sun. It is perfect for everyday use, so you don't have an excuse to skip sun protection ever again.



Olay Regenerist Whip SPF 30 is available in all major supermarkets, department stores, and drugstores nationwide. Visit Olay Philippines’ Facebook page to learn more about these products.

Discover what’s standing between you and your success in preventing hair loss

There comes a time in your life that you have to stand up and say, “Enough is enough.” And that’s the day when you decide to change your life for the better. Who doesn’t want to become accomplished? Even the “gifted” and brilliant ones have to pay the price so as to realize their goals in life.

When we fail to eat on time, get enough exercise or sleep between seven to nine hours a day, we’re compromising our health and wellness as we reduce the maximum extent that our body must function. Consequently, the effects in our body may extend and manifest as early warning signs of hair loss.




Take it from celebrity beauty and salon expert Fanny “TF” Serrano, who once personally experienced such an ordeal. For him, avoiding harsh synthetic solutions and choosing to use the right products with natural ingredients is a must and still the best way to deal with mane problems like losing or thinning of the hair. 


With this in mind, embracing natural healthy lifestyle is so important to achieve optimal health, best physical condition and healthy full head of hair. Health products made out of natural ingredients are way effective for better healing and maintaining our body’s lifelong function than those of synthetic ones. Rather than investing in those branded shampoos or other hair treatments, there’s a natural way to help arrest hair loss and help remedy its four early symptoms, namely, excessive hair shedding, thinning hair, receding hair line, and bald patches. This is none other than NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss.

Philippine Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo launches ‘affordable’ makeup line.

Philippine Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo launches ‘affordable’ make-up line in an event organized by online e-commerce platform Shopee held at the Kia Theatre on May 31, 2019.




Sarah Geronimo has always envisioned herself having her own business.  She considers this launch of her own make up line as a dream come true. She personally hand-picked everything from its individual content down to its design up to its packaging.


If you'll look closely, her make-up up line has a musical note embossed on each items. Showing her love for music. One can safely conclude that music greatly influenced her make-up line designs.

One of the emcee told Sarah that he'd buy Sarah's make-up line to which Sarah G replied: "Ako ng bahala sayo, bibigyan ka lang namin. Kung pwede ko lang silang bigyan lahat. Pero guys, pabayaan niyo naman akong bumisness," Sarah Geronimo said in jest. 

Sarah Geronimo's army of Popsters showed their love and support to Sarah by purchasing her cosmetics line called Pop Studio which was being sold for Php1, 999 per set. 

“Trend kasi siya ngayon. And ever since mahilig talaga ako magmakeup. I enjoy doing my own makeup ‘pag meron akong personal na lakad. Actually ‘pag nagmi-makeup kami ng makeup artist ko medyo pakialamera ako. Palaging collaborative,” said the Kapamilya singer/actress. 



Geronimo then went on to thank the people who supported her in pursuing what she always wanted to do, saying: "I’m happy na ganun ka-supportive ang glam team ko. At ganun din ka-supportive ang manager ko si Boss Vic (Del Rosario). So ayun buti na lang meron kaming mga industry experts who helped us in producing itong makeup line namin na Pop Studio.”



Sarah revealed that she made sure she had a say in all aspects of the brand as she wanted not only her fans to enjoy it but also herself as well.

“Definitely. May consultant din kami na makeup artists so very important na hands-on ako kasi nga gusto ko ‘yung ibebenta namin na produkto ‘yung talagang ginagamit ko rin - ‘yung ma-eenjoy kong gamitin hindi lang ‘yung mga customers natin," she quips. 

BUDGET FRIENDLY



Meanwhile, the Popstar Royalty revealed what makes the products from her line of cosmetics worthy of every centavo.

“We made sure kasi na very relatable. ’Yung talagang magagamit nila for their everyday look. ‘Yung day time puwede din pang-night time. Meron pang fresh look lang. Tapos merong glam look at night. So kumbaga tinatawag namin siyang two-in-one. So dual purpose siya kumbaga," the 30-year-old singer/ actress said. 


Asked what fans can expect from her now that she’s part of the Shopee family, she said: “Marami. Maraming surprises. Abangan po ninyo. I’m happy na I’m helping Shopee promote ‘yung kanilang biggest lowest price sale. 6.6-7.7. It will start on June 3 to July 7.”



Some of the products from Sarah Geronimo’s makeup line include the following :

The Hopeful Romantic trailer goes viral; reaches 9.6 million views

The Hopeful Romantic trailer goes viral; reaches 9.6 million views



The official trailer of the upcoming sexy romantic comedy film, The Hopeful Romantic has gone viral as it has reached a remarkable 9.6 million views on Facebook in less than three weeks since it was launched.

If anything, the virality of the trailer to organic Facebook users indicates a positive reception from netizens. As of today, the trailer has now reached 108,000 shares, 14,000 positive comments on Good Time Fan Page.

"Ayos 'yo ah, basta hindi gwapong aktor tapos ganito 'yung concept na movie, siguradong papatok."

"Mas gusto ko ganitong movie. Matatawa ka na maiiyak. Mas nakaka-inlove ang ganito at nakaka-excite!"

Starring theatre/TV/movie actor, Pepe Herrera and actress Ritz Azul, The Hopeful Romantic offers not just an entertaining love story, but also aims to impart an important lesson about love.

Ritz, who gets to be launched in this film as a leading lady, beams with pride about this project.

“Sobrang proud ako sa pelikulang ito kasi lahat pinaghirapan namin: ng direktor, producers, writers, at syempre co-actors ko na pinagpuyatan.

“Nakailang revisions kami para mapaganda ang story, para maihatid yung message ng story na may matutunan sila. Tsaka maganda ang storya, kapupulutan talaga siya ng aral.
The actress had to face a lot of challengers for this movie.

Firstly, Ritz, who is more comfortable with drama, ventures into comedy in The Hopeful Romantic.

Secondly, she had to lose weight to effectively portray her role as a sexy gold digger.
“Ang mahirap lang for me, physically, dapat medyo mukhang sexy don sa screen, so nag-struggle din ako to lose weight, kasi sobrang lumaki ako for a while before gawin yung movie.

“And then nahirapan ako kasi sobrang kabaligtaran ko ang role sa totoong buhay. Naging kumportable ako sa mga katrabaho ko, kaya napa-swimsuit ako."

Meantime, Pepe, who is a very talented singer-actor, finally gets to be a lead star in this film.

The versatile actor takes pride in saying that he gets to explore comedy genre through a sexy movie.

Pepe admits that he felt pressured that he would finally be a leading man in this project.
Fortunately, Ritz made his job easier for him.
"Ang masasabi ko po ay lalaki din ako at nakakaramdam ng karupukam. Si Ritz ay very desirable 110%."

“Kasi kinabahan ako nung una dahil sinasabihan ako, ‘Leading man ka na, kailangan tutukan mo yung panunuyo o kung paano tratuhin ang leading ladies.’  Parang siya [Ritz] pa yung gumagawa non para sa kin. Cowboy si Ritz. Hindi siya tipikal na leading lady.

“Sa shooting ka, sanay kasi siya na i-maximize yung oras. Walang nasasayang na oras.”
In the meantime, Ritz is happy to learn important lessons from Pepe as an actor.

“Sobrang gaan katrabaho ni Pepe. Sobrang professional. Tsaka parang nung nagsu-shoot kami, merong connection. Habang nandon kami sa characters naming, minsan kahit mata lang, nag-uusap na ganon.

“Sobrang ang pinakanatutunan ko sa kanya, hindi siya titigil sa take, kahit paulit-ulit pa yan para mapaganda yung scene,” she says.

In the Hopeless Romantic, Pepe plays Jess, a 33 year old Valet Parking Attendant at The Manila Hotel, an honest man and most of all, a virgin. He promised himself that he will only give himself when he already found his true love.

Veronica, (played by Ritz), is a kept woman in the high society world. A victim of circumstances, but still a survivor.
Jess meets Veronica at the hotel bar. Instantly, he gets mesmerized by her presence. One thing lead to another, and Veronica gave Jess the “first time”. Jess, believing in the magic of what happened between them, decides that Veronica is his one true love.

However, there is one problem; Veronica has no idea that he is not rich. Afraid that revealing himself will make him lose Veronica, Jess starts to pretend the part. He kept on doing this until his resources spill away. The inevitable happens, and Veronica learns the truth about Jess.

Tagged as the sexy comedian, The Hopeful Romantic is the first film of Pepe in a lead role.
The Hopeful Romantic opens September 12, 2018. The funniest romantic flim of the season is directed by Topel Lee.

ZENAYA AESTHETICS: Black Carbon Laser Treatment

Hola mi amigo e amigas! 

Kumustasa? Kalabasa! I am back! It's been a while since I had any facial treatment done on my aging skin. Why? It is because I was so busy helping my brother in his business that I forgot to make time for myself. Sigh!

I just realized, everybody needs a "ME Time" tandaan mo yan day! So don't follow my footsteps. Include a "ME" time no matter how busy you are! Ha ha ha! Kesehodang karay karayin mo anakis mo, go ka day.  If there is a will there is a way! 

It is a good thing that my friend Tala invited me to a bonggang facial session at Zenaya Aesthetics in Makati City. Yehey!  Thank you Tala!  Hugz! 

Zenaya Aesthetics which recently opened last July 2018, is the newest venture of the husband and wife tandem, AA and Jamie Alviar.

What exactly is the treatment done to me at Zenaya? Well, it is called "Black Carbon Laser Treatment" also known as "Hollywood Laser Peel"

Zenaya Aesthetics are among the first ones in the Philippines to offer this unique and effective treatment. The Black Carbon Laser Treatment is said to be the next-generation laser treatment. Why? Because it is super gentle even to those with sensitive skin like mine.  Mind you, their treatment does not burn the skin, it's non-invasive and pain-free. And to top that, it doesn't need any numbing cream. There is no need to be afraid to go blind because of lasers too.  All because your precious eyes will be well protected at Zenaya. Gosh, I can't see a thing for almost an hour. Ha ha ha! Doble doble yun takip bes, kaya wiz ka dapat ma afraid!


Black Carbon Laser Treatment is often referred to as the Hollywood Laser Peel, it has become a highly coveted treatment among A-List celebrities as well as common people in the USA and UK.  The goddesses who are reportedly a die-hard fans of this treatment includes: Angelina Jolie, 
Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian and the list goes on. According to one cosmetic survey this treatment has been charted as one of the top ten aesthetic treatments requested in the UK. OMG! So, that means you and your friends who would avail of this treatment would be leveling up your beauty quotients to the likes of those Hollywood superstars! 

Treatments are real quick and super easy with absolutely no downtime.  You can resume all of your activities immediately!  Of course, with the exception of heavy sun activities.

What is a Black Carbon Laser Treatment?




This is a Next-Gen laser treatment. It is a gentle treatment that does not burn the skin, it's non-invasive and pain-free.  You don't even need numbing cream! There is no need to be afraid of Lasers anymore!

This unique, special treatment is great for treating minor skin imperfections and giving skin a glow from within. This laser treatment is delivered by a state-of the-art Q-switched Nd-Yag Laser machine producing short, rapid and high intensity pulses of light with maximum capability for destruction of debris clogged in the pores and upper layers of skin. Yet, it is a very gentle treatment.

During the gentle procedure, the face is cleansed, then a thin layer of mineral-rich black carbon lotion (as a photo-enhancer) is applied. The laser light vaporizes the black particles of carbon, along with the superficial dead layer of skin as laser light moves across the skin. The Black Carbon is a Nano- activated carbon and contains Vitamins B3, B5, Amino acid and a variety of marine minerals to help give your skin a glowing, radiant complexion.

What are the benefits of Black Carbon Laser Treatment? 

  • Reduces Pore Size - Tightens Dilated Pores
  • Stimulates Collagen Growth in the Face & Neck
  • Clears Pores - Reduces Blackheads & Whiteheads
  • Restores Skin Integrity & Radiance
  • Reduces Excess Oil Production
  • Improves skin texture
  • Reduces fine lines, Wrinkles & Crow's Feet
  • Removes Dead Skin Cells
  • Reduces Acne & Post Acne Discoloration
  • Reduces Fine Freckles, Sun Spots & Dark Age Spots (Pigmentation)
  • Reduces Melasma
  • Re-Balances Skin
  • Improves Skin Tone
  • Restores Elasticity
  • Produces Brighter, Smoother, Healthier-Looking Skin


Additionally, the laser selectively targets facial imperfections such as enlarged pores, pigmentation, Melasma, scarring, and rough texture. Pores impacted with oil and dead skin are cleared off and the rejuvenating effect of 1064nm laser causes plumping up of the skin. The whole procedure takes less than 60 minutes and best part is; there is no down-time you can go back to work or your daily life without delay.  Fast, effective and no hassle to you or to anyone.

Since the procedure is non-invasive, it doesn't burn the skin, and it is pain-free.




Please note that the photo above were taken from the internet. I only had one session. If ever Zenaya sponsor more treatments then I'll change the pictures with my own pictures. Reason? You need at least several treatments to see significant results.




Look at that wonderful effect to sagging skin.




Laser energy lightly removes the Black Caron lotion, heating dermis and lightly ablating the top layer of dead skin, which is not painful. The laser energy breaks up pigment, that is then carried away by your body, and heats the skin causing the skin to contract, which tightens you skin, and at the same time, stimulates the building of Collagen. The result; smoother brighter, rejuvenated skin and a younger looking you!








Note: Pictures use above are not mine unless stated otherwise.


How can Black Carbon Laser Treatment help you?


A Black Carbon Laser Treatment is said to be suitable for men and women of all ages and assists people with pigmentation, acne, wrinkles, dull or poor skin tone, large pores and helps to lessen the premature signs of aging. It even works on darker skin.


How does the Black Carbon Laser Treatment feel?

I can describe the "Black Carbon Laser Treatment" to give a feeling of warmth, prickly, with sounds that could jolt you, but not painful. A loud click sound is heard as the carbon particles are targeted by the laser and the light energy is absorbed by the carbon particles. No numbing cream is required.


Is there any downtime after the Black Carbon Laser Treatment?

CORY QUIRINO: Talks About Her Hair Care Secret

World-class natural remedy for Filipina beauty & wellness expert’s crowning glory


Hair loss is a concern for both men and women. It can have a devastating effect to anyone who experiences it.

According to Web MD, the average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair and loses up to 100 of them a day, which is normal. As people age, their rate of hair growth slows, and they can experience losing more than hundreds of strands which is quite alarming. So what can you do to prevent it?

For beauty and wellness expert, Cory Quirino, embracing wellness is the first step to help improve the hair’s condition and make people look younger.

“If you choose to have a wellness lifestyle, then expect wonderful changes such as radiant skin, energy, and a general sense of well-being,” she emphasizes. “In time, you will realize that you have successfully delayed the aging process.”

The beauty and wellness expert says that choosing wellness as a lifestyle includes eating nutritious food, exercising, getting a good sleep, drinking generous amounts of water, managing stress, getting enough sunshine, and above all, staying positive.

On top of a daily healthy regimen, a supplement is necessary to maintain a healthy hair and scalp. Many people opt to use chemical-based products. But for her, the use of natural products is a must and the best solution for hair loss.

“There are hair treatment products in the market today that claim to be effective but their ingredients could contain chemicals that may prove harmful with long-term use,” she enthuses. “Choose natural. Say NO to harsh chemicals and let nature do the makeover,” she emphasizes.

Natural ingredients such as virgin coconut oil (VCO) and aloe vera are loaded with beneficial properties, which boost the health of the scalp and hair. These and much more natural herbs and essential oils can be found in NOVUHAIR, a topical scalp lotion with 19 natural ingredients that work in synergy to help prevent hair loss, which the beauty and wellness expert approves of.

“Even if I have been blessed with thick hair, I know that it has to be cared for,” she maintains. “I use NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion once daily in the evening before bedtime. Next morning, I apply it on my scalp again, then a shampoo after 30 minutes. Those who wish to further thicken the hair, it is a must to also use the shampoo and conditioner daily.”

Eventually, she noticed impressive effects after using this breakthrough product: significant lessening of hair fall, abundant growth of tress, and the return of locks’ luster.

Apart from being effective, it’s a very safe solution, too. A local clinical study has proven that NOVUHAIR has no adverse side effects with continuous use.

Moreover, NOVUHAIR is not just for those who experience hair loss. Younger people, especially the millennials, can use it for maintenance or prevention if hair loss runs in the family.

Cory recommends NOVUHAIR to everyone, especially to those who want to maintain their hair the best way they can. For her, this globally-competitive natural product answers the needs of a discriminating, health-conscious public.

Born on August 11, the granddaughter of the late Philippine President Elpidio Quirino is an author, and television and radio host. She has been a strong advocate for natural health, beauty, and wellness for more than two decades.

“Twenty years ago, it was as simple a goal as weight loss. But when I saw the dramatic effect it had on my vitality and complexion, I knew that this was the good path to take. For those who wish the same things I wanted then, this would be just as easy to embrace,” Cory recalls.

She wrote a series of best-seller books entitled “Forever Young”, which feature beauty and health tips as well as her own workout programs. Likewise, she also made a fitness video called “Cory Quirino’s Celebrity Workout for Beginners”.

For her, living in the 21st century has its challenges. She says: “The best way to live long and be well is to live a natural life.”

Truly, for a natural woman like Cory, her crowning glory deserves nothing but a world-class natural remedy that is NOVUHAIR.
