Mustela Maternité Skin Care Line

Leave a Comment

Women go through a lot of changes emotionally and physically when they are pregnant. Linea Nigra comes out. The belly starts to have stretch marks as it expands. A lot say it's hereditary - if you mom had it, you'd have it too. Others go through pregnancy with ZERO stretch marks. Others (like me) suffer from itchy stretch marks and we go crazy trying different products to minimise those zebra lines on our bellies.

I decided to use Mustela Maternité because it's practically everywhere (at least on the places I go to). Scent also matters to me a lot and I love that Mustela has a very gentle scent that doesn't hurt nostrils. No coconut scent whatsoever.

I used the Mustela Maternité Stretch Marks Prevention Cream (PhP1,490) on my belly mostly to prevent stretch marks. The consistency is just like any other body lotion that isn't sticky.

The product that I was most interested to try was the Mustela Maternité Light Legs Gel. My legs were always tired and I was hopeful that the minty feeling of this gel will make me legs feel better. One liner review: It didn't. On the real tho, it was practically a useless product. You can definitely skip this product.

I used the Mustela Maternité Soothing Moisturizing Balm on my shoulder and legs at times. When I almost run out of the stretch marks cream, I used this on my belly as well just to keep my belly moisturised. This is the biggest product among the three and my tube is still not halfway empty. A little product goes a long way. This might be a nice product to have but any moisturiser (without whitening properties) can be used by any pregnant woman.

When I ran out of the stretch marks cream, I decided to try the Mustela Maternité Stretch Marks Care Oil (PhP1,050). It has a mild scent that isn't bothersome.

But yes, truth be told this skin care line did not work for me at all. I started getting stretch marks on my 28th week even with religious application of these products. Quite frustrating because I highly believed in these products as influencers have raved about these - mm-hmm. I was really hopeful I wouldn't have that much stretch marks. But oh well. Part of motherhood.

To all moms out there, what stretch marks prevention products worked for you? I'd love to know!

Taking Care of Yourself Down There With GynePro*

Leave a Comment

Feminine wash is part of my shower routine. I've never been particular about brands as they all seem to be the same for me.

However, GynePro turned out to be a game changer. I admit that I wasn't very excited (to the moon and back) to use this the first time I received it. Tried it after a few months and all I could say was "why didn't I try this sooner?"

GynePro is more gentle on the skin. I know this because I've been having UTI for the last 10 months and when I made the switch to GynePro, my lab results turned out to be negative. And this was the only thing I changed in my routine. My water intake was more or less the same.

The scent of this feminine wash is very gentle. too. No itchy feeling whatsoever. The formula is liquidy like water unlike most feminine wash that happen to be thicker in consistency like liquid soap. It says on the box to use this for not more than 14 days straight so what I do is take a break for about 2 days and use it again. This feminine wash is even recommended for post-partum care.

GynePro (150mL) retails for PhP130 per bottle.

Whether you’re hitting sizzlin’ spots or sashaying in the city this summer, we’ve got you covered.

You’ve planned and booked, rounded up your besties and filed your leaves. And while you’re saddened that the cool-clime weeks couldn’t last longer, you’re also so psyched to welcome the summer season in style. On your bucket list are new summer spots, and you’re so thrilled to fill the season with exciting new memories.

Equally as important as your summer spot or wardrobe is your summer stash. You want nothing short of the right tricks and tools to ensure that you enjoy your vacay to the max without having to worry about sore summer burns. With these highly specialized summer goodies only from Céleteque Dermoscience Sun Care, you’ve got the sun products for skin-caring sun protection that meet your tough wanderlust criteria:

When you want light, breezy but potent sun protection
Say goodbye to sticky, icky afterfeel. Céleteque Dermoscience™ Sun Care Face and Body Sun Defense Spray with SPF50 (P449 for 100mL) is a non-sticky water-proof double sun defense against UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays that can be used in dry and wet conditions. Leaving no visible white marks, it looks flawless when applied. Also, its Vitamin E and sunflower oil content mattifies when rubbed unto skin all while keeping the skin moisturized even when under the sun.

This nifty product will soon be a summer staple, because it’s so easy to use. Simply, shake well, hold the can 6-8 inches away from the body while spraying generously and evenly on skin before sun exposure. For face application, spray onto hands and apply to the face. Re-apply after swimming, perspiring, or whenever needed to maintain best protection. 

When you want to look and feel flawless in the summer
Make sure your summer selfies don’t show an oil-slicked you. With Céleteque Dermoscience™ Sun Care Matte Moisturizer with SPF30 (P299 for 50mL), you get mattified double sunscreen protection against UVA/UVB rays during prolonged sun exposure. It hydrates the skin and lends the skin an oil-free and smooth matte finish. Hypoallergenic and safe for everyday use, it is also non-comedogenic and tested for efficacy and moisturization. Apply evenly on cleansed face and neck for daily sunscreen protection. Both shore- and city-ready, this’ll be your best friend in the coming scorching months. 

When you want to soothe the after-effects of the scorching sun
Nothing saps a bright summer mood than a painful burn. Céleteque Dermoscience™ Sun Care Skin Relief After-Sun Gel (P290 for 200mL) provides immediate moisturizing and cooling relief to sunburnt skin. Its Anti-inflammatory Soothing Extracts reduce the skin’s possible inflammation after prolonged sun exposure. Plus, it also has Wheat and Aloe Vera Skin Conditioners that soothe and lessen flaking of overly dry skin. Hypoallergenic and safe for everyday use, it’s the sun remedy you need for those beach visits. Apply generously on dry and reddened skin immediately after long sun exposure for immediate soothing relief and moisture replenishment. You’ll feel insta-relieved as the cool gel glides over your skin. Re-apply as often as possible until the sensation of intense dryness and heat subsides. To supplement the healing process, it is still best to re-apply sunscreen with higher SPF level for intense sun exposure.

Get yourself geared up and ready for the summer season. Stash up on these sun goodies to ensure that you have spectacular time under the summer sun. Happy summer, sun siren!

Pond’s Launches New & Improved Formulas For The Modern Pinay*

Leave a Comment

Are you ready for a beautiful change? If you think about your skincare rituals from 5 to 10 years ago, the basics were able to keep your skin clear and well-hydrated. But if you take a closer look at our environment now and analyze what our skin faces each day—like pollution, harsher UV rays, and stress—you’ll realize that these basics are no longer enough. Today’s Filipina is in need of modern-day skincare solutions that can keep up with her ever-evolving skin needs and on-the-go lifestyle. “This is why the Pond’s Institute’s recent innovations revolved around developing and improving our formulas,” says Apples Aberin, Unilever Head of PR. “Pond’s wants to evolve with the modern-day Filipina. We want to show her that there is no need to be afraid of the ever-changing environment, because Pond’s is rising up to the challenge and changing with the times.”

Everything Beautiful Begins With Change
With the NEW Pond’s formulations, the power to change your skin into something beautiful is always in your hands. The secret lies in looking for the ingredients and technology that your complexion needs at each stage of your life. Take a look at the NEW and improved Pond’s Acne Clear, Pond’s White Beauty, and Pond’s Age Miracle ranges, especially formulated for today’s modern woman.

For The Blooming Teen
She’s stepping out into the world on her own, and of course, with her besties. The skin challenge? Pimples, oily skin, and stubborn blemishes caused by stress, hormones, and pollution makes her feel self-conscious.

Sofia Andres for Pond'sHer Pond’s Solution: Pond’s Acne Clear is clinically proven to clear acne in just three days. It contains the breakthrough Lock & Clear Technology, which is the first in the world to lock bacteria cells and clear it from the inside for beautiful, acne-clear skin. “Having clear skin helps me feel confident, so I always use the Pond’s Acne Clear Facial Wash and Acne Clear Leave-on Gel combo to keep pimples and oil away,” shares new Pond’s girl Sofia Andres. “I love how it helps my breakouts clear up a lot faster, too.”

For The Girlboss-In-Progress
Whether she’s climbing the corporate ladder or making waves as a successful millennial, this hardworking woman is eager to show the world what she’s got. She lives an on-the-go lifestyle and commutes constantly for work, leaving her skin vulnerable to the sun’s damaging rays and pollution.

KathrynHer Pond’s Solution: Just 10 minutes under the sun can trigger the toughest skin problems. That’s why NEW Pond’s White Beauty uses the all-new, patented ingredient called Vitamin B3+, which works by lessening the production of melanin that causes skin darkening, and preventing the melanin from surfacing. “I noticed that I started getting dark spots from old acne marks and from being under the sun,” reveals Pond’s girl Kathryn Bernardo. “To protect my skin, I started using Pond’s White Beauty since it has SPF that protects it on the outside, and Vitamin B3+ that whitens from the inside. Using it twice daily really helped me get a rosy, white glow.”

For The Empowered Woman
Years of experience—including triumphs and failures—have allowed her to know who she is and what she wants. She’s found her stride and now she’s working on letting go of her anxiety and stress, so she can enjoy her time with the ones who matter.

Toni Gonzaga for Pond'sHer Pond’s Solution: NEW Pond’s Age Miracle helps reduce worry lines, wrinkles, skin sagging, and age spots. It has Retinol-C Complex that works 24 hours non-stop, helping to reduce wrinkles to give you a youthful glow. “As a new mom, I noticed that the late nights were starting to take a toll on my skin,” shares Pond’s Brand Ambassador Toni Gonzaga. “I tried the new formula, and after just 7 days, I noticed that I look a lot fresher and I even got my glow back!”

Making Beautiful Changes With Pond’s
Joey Mead for Pond'sThe All-New Pond’s seeks to inspire women and show them that the power to make change beautiful is in her hands. “They say that the most beautiful faces in the Philippines use Pond’s—and I’m proud to be one of them,” shares new Pond’s brand ambassador, Joey Mead. “As women, it’s important that we strive to inspire and empower one another. We all have the strength and grace to transform the toughest changes into something beautiful.”

At the forefront of skincare science and innovation since 1846, Pond’s continues to show why it is still a leader when it comes to providing superior solutions for cleansing, anti-aging, and lightening. And now, with the NEW and improved Pond’s Acne Clear, Pond’s White Beauty, and Pond’s Age Miracle ranges, the modern Filipina can feel confident knowing that she has what she needs to face the beautiful changes in her life with beautiful skin.
