Upon entering the party, I was surprised to see a lot of their sunnies where not just so fab but also affordable. With numerous designs, frames, colors and shapes to choose from, I was confused on which one to buy. Here are 4 of my personal picks, (decided to buy the bottom left shades). We really had tons of fun during the event.

[Beauty] Browhaus now in Davao

Eyebrow grooming has been part of my beauty pampering, at times I find it painful not because of the expenses I spend in threading, but with the pain I get to experience everytime I get my eyebrows threaded/pluck at the salon. Tried different salons, which offers threading services ranging from P100-350. Since its not that expensive if you do threading occassionally, I dreaded the days when I have to deal with threading pains just to get my eyebrows in shape for occassions I need to attend.

Just this month, Browhaus had just opened its doors to the Davaoenos. Its located at the 3rd Level of Abreeza Corporate center, Bajada, Davao City. I booked my appointment on a wednesday late afternoon after work. The concept of their store reminded me of a shooting range, complete with rifle guns, tarp targets and dart boards, feels like I am really inside an army themed shooting range.

Browhaus is an international brand that is based in Singapore, they had opened their first 2 branches in Manila, 1 in Greenbelt 5 and the 2nd is at Serendra, the Davao Abreeza branch is their 1st out of town branch. Recently they had just opened another at Lucky Chinatown Mall in Binondo Manila. Here are their other International Branches.

I was welcomed by the receptionist and had a quick chat with Ms Monique the head of Browhaus as to how it started, and some other questions I got to ask her. I was afraid of having my brows threaded since I have a low pain tolerance. I easily feel pain especially in pulling any facial hairs. I have to make Ms. Monique assured me that it would not be the traumatic pain I get with threading in other salons.She explained that they are using high quality threads that are especially made for brow threading. She assured me that it would be painless, since their therapist where trained for 6 months before the store was opened.  I was curious as to why it was quite expensive for us Davaoeneo’s to spend much in brow grooming, but rest assured, they use good quality materials to groom our brows.

As I sat at the chair, I requested to reshape my brows and at the same time have it darkened since my brow looks light. At first, I was afraid as the threading started, but in a few seconds I got adjusted to it, as promised, it really was not painful. I got up happy and very satisfied with the service they gave me. I got the Browgraphy service which includes: eyebrow shaping and color tweak to achieve a shaped eyebrow plus the right shade since I wanted a darker eyebrow look. Here is the result:

[Beauty] Human Nature All Natural Soap & Spray Sanitizer

Human Nature All Natural Soap

 photo 039-ed_zpsfe428732.jpg

Size: 120g

Price:  P59.75

The Verdict:

Having tried a lot of different beauty soaps in the market, I would say that  Human Natures Soap is more gentle on my skin with less drying effect. Personally, I had a hard time finding a good soap that would give my skin more moisture since I don’t have good skin. Its a clear and unscented bar soap.  Its gentle to the skin since its made from all natural ingredients. Considering that for some who are into the scented beauty soaps, I don’t mind that its unscented as long as it gives my skin good mositure. Though its a bit expensive compared to the soap in the market. I would recommend this to people who wants to improve their blemished skin or complicated skin.

Human Natures Spray Sanitizer in Tropical Burst

Size: available in 50ml & 200ml

Price: 50ml: P67.75

200ml: P189.75

Also available in: Citrus Burst & Juicy Burst

Verdict: 

The scent was refreshing after your first few sprays. I personally love the scent, its a mix of citrus with a hint of vanilla. Once you spray it to your hand, you will be smelling the different scents. But to some of my friends, they didn’t like the scent, they said that its too citrusy and strong to their smell. As for the product, I like how it makes me feel that my hands are clean after a few sprays. It is also very convenient to bring along anywhere. I’d say, I will recommend this to everyone who are planning to try a different sanitizer and since its a 100% natural product with no harmful effect to nature.

[Beauty] Godiva Skin launch

Godiva Skin Care has launched its new line of skincare last Feb1-3 at SM Annex. It was a day of pampering for the ladies who had joined the event. They had the skin analysis, hand massage, beauty make-over and the photobooth for the ladies to experience a day of fun and pampering. Way back when the popular beauty creams aren’t made available in the Philippine market, mom & I tried Godiva beauty cream. It was a nightly ritual to put creams on before going to bed.

After a few years, Godiva Skin Care has made a comeback, with their popular main ingredient the Licorice which helps whiten skin that lasts. Licorice is a plant found on the Mediterranean region. The licorice roots are used as flavorings, it also has its medicinal properties which are mixed with the beauty creams.

Godiva’s beauty journey was held at SM Annex, it was consisted of 4 booths to try out. Namely the skin analysis booth, hand massage, beauty makeover and the photobooth. I had go through the 4 booths before the event has started. I must say, it was a beauty journey that we girls would love.
