Hair Care Tips: My Current Hair Care Resolution | Mom In Style

One of the things I am very passionate about doing is maintaining a good and healthy skin as well as the hair. I have always been very skeptical about hair and skin care when I started working in the office because grooming plays a well vital essential in the workplace especially when you are facing people and co-workers almost every single day.



Spending too much on expensive shampoos and conditioners, I have tried to see some results on my hair. I have tried several hair products including Hair Conditioners to maintain the locks and smoothness of my curly hair.

I have this Thing for Makeup

August 24, 2016




Hi Dearies!!!
I am really losing myself lately. I am soo broke for like the entire year of my life. I am solely dependent on my husband now being just a stay-at-home mom. I miss my damn paycheck!

Well, truth be told I am an addict to beauty. I am easily drawn to pretty things which I don't know why. I started this blog with barely little knowledge on makeup before. I even thought to myself that what a waste of money that would have been if my hobby. But look I am still buying this freaking lipsticks. 

I am officially posting this to just tell you that I am slowly getting back to my medications. I am definitely coming back for more reviews especially with my affordable drugstore finds. I am a makeup addict on a budget so hopefully you will learn more from me. *winks!*

For now, let me sort some of my makeup tools and brushes as we go along this journey. 

Love you all and thanks for reading this post.
I can't wait to share some of the looks I will be able to create in the future.

Much Love!!!

-xx-

Mommy Ina Reviews: Sophie Magic Pink Cream

September 27, 2013

Hi mommies and fellow beauty enthusiasts!!

I've been wanting to do a review on this product for a very long time hadn't I been busy.
I left the office early today to take care of baby Adi since Nanay accidentally got sick. Nakakaawa talaga si Inay. I have no Yaya and helper at home, I am a working mom and I leave Adi to her for like the whole day.


How I wish that I could decently find myself a good helper who I can entrust Adi with. He has grown so fast and he is really very sipat (kulit) in bisaya. So to cut the story short, I was home to once and for all attend to my toddler little boy.

So much for that, let's get with the review of this product which I have been really loving since the day I got my hand on it. =) 

 (Sophie's MAGIC PINK Cream)
one minute to naturally look pink



Back
Magic Pink is formulated using plant extract. It turns skin into rosy pink within 1 minute of application. 


i love that it comes in a tube =) i can easily squeeze a pea-sized amount from it.


the consistency of the product is watery (water-based ingredient) and the color at first is white as shown above on my hand. 


 After spreading the product on my hand...

What I love:

  • it's water based.
  • it's payoff is more of a natural pink unlike other cheek tints that are too red or too obviously red on the face.
  • it stays longer. the color is there even by the next morning.
  • a little goes a long way for this product. =)
  • affordable for only PHP85.00 at Sophie
What I don't like:
  • the tube.... =)
Have you tried this product, too? Let me know your thoughts.

till then ♥

LOTD (Lipstick of the Day): Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Off Beat Pink

May 23, 2013


My second of the 12 lipsticks for my lipstick of the day posts for Ever Bilena matte lipstick is today as you can see.  I have been using this lipstck for two weeks now. Amongst the 12 colors, this one is what i liked best!
roflbot (1)

I got this lipstick as part of the complete set of matte lipstick – my prize for winning the contest hosted by Ever Bilena. The minute i held this baby and put on some on my lips was bliss! i love the color and the hue of pink on it. really what the name tells – “off beat”.

Skin Care: Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize

April 3, 2013

I have been starting to get conscious about my face since I have places my utmost closest attention on facial products especially make up. At the age of 26 and turning 27, I know I have aged and had to take care of my precious face.

I really aspire to have that flawless skin but unfortunately I don't. My face is no exception and it frustrates me sometimes to see those blackheads and oiliness that comes with it. My T-Zone is like so shiny you can swipe an oil blotting sheet and get it damped right then and there.

So, to end this misfortune that I so call, I am immensely taking this beauty ritual on a regular basis. I usually do just wash my face with just soap and water but then, I wanted to get that smooth and blemish free skin. I know sometimes I do have an unhealthy diet and I bet I should also start there. I'd like to take that opportunity to finally be conscious of what I eat. Maybe I'll do a separate challenge for that after this Skin Care 101 stabilizes and be part of my routine.

If only I have all the means to find and get a hand at all the Beauty products and facial treatments I would love to. But for now, let me just stick to these products that are affordable and somehow really work for me and my skin type. =)

First Step: Cleanse
I use the cleanser from the Tea Tree facial care set from AVON and the Eskinol Deep Cleanse Facial Cleanser. First, I wash my face with the tea tree cleanser. I love it cause it has micro beads present that will really get down on the pores of your face, but I only get a pea-sized amount. What i don't like about it is that it is quite rocky and somewhat strong on the skin but for me it just serves its purpose since I have an oily type of skin. It feels really refreshing after washing my face with it.


What I use for my face after washing and scrubbing is the Deep Cleanser from Eskinol, I love this product since it can gently clean away dirt and makeup on your face. Plus it also prevents blackheads and also whitens! =) This is what I am using as of the moment but the one in green variant is what I really love.


Second Step: Tone

After all the scrubbing and those deep cleansing on our pores, we need to apply a toner to tone down the pores of our skin. Toners help to close out the pores and get that smooth and flawless face. What I am using as the moment is the one from PONDs. It is an oil solution toner, perfect for my oily skin. What I don't like about this product is that is that stingy feel after I placed some on my face. I prefer the one from AVON though since it is much gentler and has that soothing effect on my face right after application. I can feel my skin now and has soften and is much smoother. Makes me want to purchase toners from AVON. For only 129 pesos why not.


Final Step: Moisturize

I love this moisturizer! I use it for day time and I apply it before my liquid foundation. It sits perfectly and it whitened my skin. I love this product so much! It also has SPF great for the sun's heat especially when i am out for errands.


AVON Rose and Rose hips whitening cream

And here is a look of my face after a 2 weeks of using the cleanser and toner products. For the moisturizer, i have used it for a month now and I would definitely repurchase. I can't go out without it. =)



What you think about it? What are your beauty rituals?

It's Amazing what make up can Do: A Makeover 101 at Watsons Ayala

November 26, 2012

It's Amazing really what make up can do. I was strolling by Ayala to get some cute umbrellas for the rainy season. But see what I found, myself at watsons for their great make up sale... =)

I was really hooking for the lipstick grab since I am out of stock nowadays since I gave birth to my baby boy last August. I just came back from work mid October so what can I say, i was having that "losyang" image right then and there and I just need some makeover. 

A picture taken right before the make over. =) Sooo.... ngarag! hehehe LOL!
Forgive me about the outfit, as I am really probing the losyang look. XD grin.


Repost: Make up Do's And Dont's


(VoistMagazine) Would you shake someone’s hand after just witnessing them dig up their nose? How about touching a door knob after someone sneezed then touched the knob with their germy hand? Or put your chip in the party sauce that a stranger in front of you double dipped into? Of course you wouldn’t, unless you want to end up with a cold or some kind of harmful bacterial infection.
What about sharing makeup: You run out of mascara as you’re getting ready for a party, photo shoot or just a girls’ night at home, would you use your friend’s? Sure why not, it’s harmless… isn’t it?
Absolutely NOT! The truth is, makeup (especially eye makeup like mascara) can harbor harmful bacteria and cause infection if it is not properly stored and used, especially if kept passed its expiration date.

Why Do I Wear Make-Up?

November 7, 2012



(source: Google) 

I’ve read this beauty post tag from  Sharna. I loved reading the post and as I was about to answer the question, I kept thinking really why? Well, obviously every girl loves to look pretty and attractive. That is why, for me “make up” is God’s gift to women. (“,) would you agree? It gives us that feeling of confidence about ourselves as we face other people each day especially with working moms like me.  So why not share with you this post and do my tag as well.

1. When did you begin loving make up?

As far as I can remember, my first encounter with make up was when I was still 5 years old.  well, my aunt used to place makeup on my face and dress me up like I was some sort of a doll.. back at school, I was a dancer, and you know the trick to fancy our already pretty faces , are but a dub of powder, lipstick and blush-ons... I just love looking pretty, if I was really. From that time I was a teenager I got myself quite comfortable wearing just lipgloss and a little powder on my face. I started wearing makeup occasionally when I reached college.

2. How do you feel without make-up? 

Most of the time I don’t do make ups especially at home or when I go out strolling at the mall or when I reun for errands. I just put on little powder and lipgloss just so I look presentable and to feel confident with myself.
I do wear makeup to work I dab on a little powder from AVON (ideal luminous pressed powder) in Oriental, a little lipgloss from AVON (simply pretty) in coral sparkles, blush on from AVON (simply pretty) in blooming peach and a little mascara on my eyelashes. Whenever I don’t wear them I feel naked on the face. Most of them are from AVON since I am a loyal user since I am also an AVON Dealer. (Which reminds me I will be posting a review on the products soon here).


3. What do you like about make-up?  

Yes, I agree with Sharna  I also love the fact that make up makes us look good and bring out our facial features when we apply them properly on the face.  And yeah, it also lifts up our moods most of the time and gives us that sense of completeness and confidence about ourselves.

4. Three 'Holy Grail' Products?

These three items are the things I wished I had so I can also see its effect on my face.

Etude BB foundation and concealer
AVON eyeshadow quad in smoky eyes
MAC lipstick in pink


I am also tagging every lady out there like me who also love to look pretty to share their thoughts. I enjoyed doing this tag with Sharna so if you’ll do this on your blog leave a comment so I can check them out as well.

Till Then,


Whitening is iN???

February 10, 2010

I've been really curious about the whitening effects of some beauty products nowadays.
You know, whitening stuffs, glutathione and all..

They have even come in many forms. From the usual soaps to capsules to injectibles.
At first glance, I wouldn't mind taking one since I am part of the percentage of asian women who happen to belong under the fair-skinned.
I mean, I am proud of my color. I am proud to be brown.
But just the fact I don't seem to be confident enough about my skin. I am only 23 turning 24.
I guess, I should make a move on properly caring for my wellness and inner health.

At first, I hesitated due to the fact that this intakes costs about half a 100 bucks.
I still tried, thinking it would be a good risk after all.
Anyways, I'll have to witness and see the results myself.

To my surprise, everything came into account and the process went on for a month now.
I must admit I have noticing real effects and has brought me the confidence and the inner health I pervently need even before.

My officemates noticed how my skin glew. (Soon I'll be posting my before and after pics here..LOLZ! Just so you know)..

Anyways, not only that I noticed I lose weight. And became even more fit. LOLZ! I am really surprised.
I noticed my skin became smoother and my hair grew faster now...

I feel so much bliss! The money is all worth it guyz! Try it..:-)

You Might Enjoy
