REVIEW: Sparkling Green Grape Hand Cream by Esfolio

by 12:28 PM
If you will conduct a bag raid with me at any given time, you'll find a jar or a tube of hand cream in the pockets of my bag. I am super obsessed with hand creams because my hands are naturally dry and unrelieved. I can't imagine life without hand cream and no, I'm not exaggerating. :D I am not blessed with soft hands so a moisturizer is a must for me. In today's blog post, I am going to share you one of my favorite hand creams.

Hand creams will not only make our hands soft and moisturize, it can also serve as a hand perfume. I always want my hands to smell good especially when I'm meeting new people. I would like to leave a good impression during our first skin contact (shake hands). Having soft and good smelling hands really boosts my confidence.

I am recently loving the Sparkling Green Grape Hand Cream by Esfolio. By the way, Esfolio is one of my favorite Korean brands. I am really impressed with the packaging of this hand cream because it is housed in a tube container that can perfectly fit my bag's small pocket. I also like its leak-proof nozzle because I hate seeing my other stuff swimming with cream. No please!!

What I like the most about the Sparkling Green Grape Hand Cream by Esfolio is the moisture it gives without giving me that sticky or heavy feeling. That's actually my first criteria when buying a hand cream. It should be lightweight! Aside from making my skin super soft all day long with minimal application, I also love the lasting fragrance this amazing hand cream can provide. I am really hooked by its fresh fruity smell as it serves as a quick mood and energy booster.

If you are looking for a hand cream that works amazingly, I highly recommend the Sparkling Green Grape Hand Cream by Esfolio. I just super love it and I hope you guys can try it as well. I can't wait to hear you guys say that you are obsessed with it too. :D

Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid Soap REVIEW

by 7:10 PM
It has been a long time since I tried this product but I can still remember my experience using this most raved kojic acid soap from Belo. I recently tried the soap again so I am excited to share you my detailed review about the Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid Soap. I gave my short review about this product on my blog post about whitening soaps in the Philippines few years ago. Click here to read the said blog.

Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid Soap

Belo’s most intensive whitening bar yet that boasts of the unique combination of today’s two most powerful whitening actives.

Kojic Acid is an organic compound that effectively inhibits the production of melanin giving skin a visibly lighter appearance.

Tranexamic Acid is a peptide proven to inhibit inflammation and melanin formation. It is ideal for stubborn dark spots that do not respond to other skin lightening ingredients.

Where to buy?
Watsons, Supermarket, Mercury Drugstores

How much?
P59.75 (65g)

First of all, I am super impressed on the fragrance of this soap because it has this very pleasant smell that makes me feel fresh every after bath. I also want to commend the detailed packaging of this product because everything you need to know about the soap is clearly printed on the box. Another thing that I like about this product is the ingredients. The kojic acid and tranexamic acid are brilliantly combined together. Those two are very powerful whitening ingredients.

The soap produces a generous amount of bubbles which I super like because it makes my bathing time enjoyable and not so boring. I also like the fact that it really makes my skin whiter. It is not super fast but at least, I can confidently say that this product works. I noticed a whiter complexion after finishing 4 bars of this kojic acid soap.

I experienced tingling sensation and excessive dryness using the Belo Intensive Whitening Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid Soap so I don't recommend this product if you have sensitive and dry skin. That's actually a down side for me because I have hypersensitive skin and it makes my skin looks like a chalkboard. Yes, it is effective in terms of skin lightening but I don't want to compromise my skin's overall health just to make it fairer.

All in all, I can still recommend this soap if you have a normal skin type. This can really whiten the skin but make sure to still moisturize your entire body after bath to maintain the moisture level on your skin. Will I repurchase again? Hmmm... Maybe!

Affordable but Awesome Summer Destination near Manila: Amana Waterpark

by 5:21 PM
Amana, ooh na-na. Half of my heart is in Amana, ooh-na-na.. I bet you sang while reading my intro haha. Seriously, my heart is still in Amana Waterpark because of so many things. In this blog post, I am going to share you few of the many reasons why I enjoyed my visit in this amazing waterpark.

Very near to Metro Manila

Amana Waterpark will surely be your favorite quick summer getaway because it is only 45 minutes away from the metro. The 13 hectare pool resort is beautifully located at Bagong Barrio, Pandi, Bulacan. Now you don't have to file a vacation leave just to experience summer because this amazing waterpark is just one tumbling away. :D

Themed Pools

Amana Waterpark is having some of the best attractions that a pool resort can offer to their guests. I can actually name it as the Universal Studios of the Philippines. They have different themed pools that will surely resurrect the kiddie spirit in you. The themed pools are big enough to accommodate a lot of swimmers. I hate crowded pools and I bet you'll like the ones in Amana.

Inflatable Pool

Now this is their newest attraction. Adrenaline junkies will surely enjoy conquering the slippery and wobbly obstacle and fulfill their ninja adventure dreams because of the Amana's wide inflatable pool. Yes, you don't need to travel to Zambales to experience this kind of adventure because there is one in Bulacan. In Amana Waterpark. :)

13 Wave Pool

Amana Waterpark hosts a 3,500 square meter wave pool that can mimic a tsunami wave (just kidding but yeah, their pool can produce 13 waves). To date, they are the biggest in the Philippines. The thrill of splashing into these artificial pool waves will surely make you wanna ask for more.

Comfortable Rooms

Aside from beautiful cottages, Amana also offers different types of rooms for family, couples, and soul searchers. I personally like the feel-at-home vibes their rooms can offer. Perfect if you just want to relax and have an overnight stay.

Affordable Rates

I literally dropped my jaw when I saw their rates. Be the judge. Look at the rates below:

You must be kidding me!! No, I'm not kidding. They really offer a very affordable rate for a beautiful big resort.

Very Clean Environment

Me and my blogger friends walked around the resort and to be honest, we all agreed that every corner of the resort is clean and organized. I hate going to a resort with a lot of garbage and wastes around the vicinity. Amana Waterpark did not disappoint me because of their very pleasant environment. Thumbs up!


It is very important that you and your love ones are secured and protected within the vicinity. In Amana Waterpark, there are life guards and security roaming around 24-7 so you can enjoy a worry-free vacation.


These super sarap foods are from their in-house restaurant. :) 

You may forget your favorite swimming attire but I bet, you can never forget to bring your favorite foods! Yes, foods are allowed inside Amana Waterpark with no extra cost. You can bring them inside for free. There are also food stalls and restaurants available for those who don't have time to cook. Amazing isn't it?

Other Amenities

Aside from their themed pools, you can also enjoy other activities like zip line, experience the 4D virtual reality ride, have picture taking and enjoy their mini zoo.

So there! Those are just some of the reasons why half of my heart is still in Amana. :D I highly recommend this wonderful resort to anyone looking for a perfect yet affordable summer vacation. I am giving you my word for  this amazing resort. It is truly a treasure that Bulacan can boast. :)
