Summer Faves to Stay Cool and Fresh While in the City


I just want to live in a bathtub. 

Although I love the colors of summer, I would never get used to the humid weather. I take a bath/shower 3 times a day. The other day, I even had to crash in a friend's house to take a quick shower before I head to another meeting (thank you #D!). 

While we all wish for the beach, here are some of my current faves that help me stay cool and fresh while staying in the city.



Dove Nutritive Solutions Shampoo and Conditioner

Dove Nutritive Solutions Shampoo and Conditioner
Thank you Dove for always sending well-thought of gifts!

I am in constant battle with my hair . I oftentimes opt to keeping it in a bun. Although people say that it is not good to wash your hair everyday, I still do. I cannot imagine going to bed with dirty hair and scalp. The horror. I know I have been abusing my hair because of this; but thankfully, with the new Dove Nutritive Solutions Shampoo and Conditioner, I can blow-dry, colour, perm, or straighten my hair anyday. I love products that give instant damage repair to give me damage-free hair after every wash.


Biore UV Body Care Serum Anti-Pollution Intensive White and Biore UV Body Care Serum Anti-Pollution in Extra Moisture

My favorite sunblock brand just recently introduced the latest additions to its skin care formulas - Biore UV Anti-Pollution Care Serum. The latest skin line was formulated with the Filipina's skin in mind. It has Superior Doube UV Block with SPF 50+ and PA+++ that promises to shield the skin from UVB rays that cause dark spots, freckles and sunborn.

Easily absorbed by the skin

The Biore UV Anti-Pollution Care Serum is formulated with mineral water from Japan, making it light-weight and easily absorbed by the skin. I love that it doesn't leave any white residue or oily finish.

It comes in 2 variants   - Biore UV Body Care Serum Anti-Pollution Intensive White ( promises fairer skin in 24 days with Vitamin B3 and Yuzu Orange Extract) and Biore UV Body Care Serum Anti-Pollution in Extra Moisture (with Vitamin B3).

What I usually bring in my hand-carried pouch 😁

I got this travel kit that has all the essentials I need in a simple pouch. If you haven't tried Dentiste just yet, check out the store and shop online: http://dentistetoothpaste.com/. 


Locally Juice Drinks

The unpredictable and erratic weather is the usual suspect to the spread of viral infections. I try to stay healthy especially when I do not get my 8 hours of sleep by eating and consuming healthier food. Currently, I am loving new @locallyph's Green Mango flavor.

Magnum Hazelnut Luxe

My body would never forgive me for this - but I always find myself indulging in a bar of Magnum Hazelnut Luxe everynight. My only excuse is, it is LIMITED EDITION. So I indulge. I take pleasure seriously.

The Magnum Hazelnut Luxe is made of rich hazelnut ice cream, covered in thick Belgian chocolate and caramelized hazelnuts. It is pure bliss to hear the crackling sound of the Belgian Chocolate in every bite. You guys must try!
