REVIEW: Shisiedo Medicated Pressed Baby Powder

Hello guys. Here's a quick review and insights about this famous powder from Shisiedo. Its complete name is the Pressed Baby Powder ( Medicated ) version.  The catch? I've read something online that it also helps with oil control and can  be a powder to set makeup. Sounds interesting already.

What's it about?
It's basically a white powder that  is designed to avoid diaper rush  and help protect baby's skin from excessive sweating.

POWDER: It's really fine and powdery smooth.
PACKAGING: It comes in this plastic container but is also lightweight enough to be put inside our handbag. Also, it has a puff which is pretty decent and good quality.
SIZE: 50 g
SCENT & FRAGRANCE: It is pretty neutral. No smell and fragrance whatsoever.
TEXTURE: It can be chalky at first but the powder just melts into the skin ( especially during hot summer days)
COVERAGE: Just very light.

My Overall Thoughts
Well, it's like a love and hate relationship. I love it because it's very cheap and the size really goes a long way. At first, I didn't know how to use this well because it gave this white cast  after I put this on to set my make up. Then, after I used it for several weeks and focusing more on my T-zone and oily areas, then this powder works wonders as it did made my face look decent and oil-free somehow for about 4 to 5 hours or so. Also, it performs better when you apply this with a brush because you can control the amount of the powder you want to use only. Well, it's not bad after all.

There you have it. For those of you looking for a good powder to try, then check this out. Have you tried this already? I wonder about it and let's exchange thoughts my friends.

As always, choose happiness and put your best foot forward all the time.

Hello everyone! It's the month of December and that basically means everything gets so busy, parties here there and everywhere happen. I have here a good product recommendation that will surely remove your make-up in as easy as 1, 2 and 3. I kid you not. Let's continue this.

What is it about?
This Micellar Cleansing Wipes from SIMPLE are made with Micellar Water for a thorough yet gentle cleanse. The clever micelles gently lift away make-up, impurities and unclog pores. Skin is left feeling clean, fresh and hydrated without irritation. It's perfect for sensitive skin.

This is how the cleansing wipe looks like.

SIZE: It's a pretty decent size, just enough to cleanse the face and neck completely.

CLOTH: It feels like the softest cloth actually. It feels very mild and gentle on the skin.

  • It has Vitamins B5 and Vitamin E
  • It has no alcohol and no oil either. Meaning it's non drying and non greasy
  • It has no artificial perfume, color and no harsh chemicals 
  • Why? It's just SIMPLE.

My Overall Thoughts
Well, I'm simply blown away with these cleansing wipes. Just love love love how they work effectively and at the same time they still leave a good amount of moisture on the skin. That's what you call a WINNER for all the busy ladies out there.  I highly recommend this to everyone.

I'll just send a special shoutout to LAZADA PH for sending this as my prize. Truly appreciate your kind gesture.

Nestle Milk Tea in 3 New Exciting Flavors

Hello guys! I want to send a special shout out to my fellow food lovers here. I have a good beverage recommendation particularly the famous variants of Milk Tea. I am a self-confessed milk tea addict. Absolutely, they are very good alternatives to the ones being sold in coffee shops and milk tea  stores. The steal? You get to enjoy the same taste with only a fraction of the price.

Now, let's enumerate them one by one.
1. Nestea Milk Tea Hokkaido Style

It has a taste that is inspired by the MILKY creaminess of Hokkaido Milk Tea. It's made from the goodness of real brewed black tea leaves and only has 54 calories.

My Personal Description: It really tastes legit guys. No joke intended here. The outstanding flavor here is that creaminess and milky flavor it has. It's just a good balance of flavor.  It even tastes better to the bottled drink we tried in 7/11 convenience store in Tokyo.  

2. Nestea Milk Tea Thai Style

It has a taste that will transport you to the streets of Bangkok and Thailand in general. It's made from the goodness of real black tea leaves and only has 57 calories.

My Personal Description: Once again, this is legit. It actually tastes perfectly the same to the ones we've had in Bangkok, the same ones with the drinks being sold in milk tea stores and even coffee shops who sell this. I kid you not. You get to experience that special taste which is a combination of spices and milk but not overpowering at all. Just perfectly blended in this one drink.

3. Nestea Milk Tea Winter Melon

It has a taste of that original milk tea in winter melon flavor. It's made from the goodness of real black tea leaves combined with Nestle milk. It only has 54 calories. 

My Personal Description: Once again, this is also a winner. The taste is genuinely a carbon copy  of the ones being sold in milk tea shops. You get to have that slight hint of bitterness after drinking this which is pretty normal to any milk tea in this flavor.

PRICE: It's sold individually. In local supermakets, it costs P10 per sachet. If you buy in boxes, Lazada PH offers P 190 / box  that contains 10 sachets.

SIZE:  It has 12 g in every sachet.

SERVING SUGGESTION: It can be served hot or cold.

My Overall Thoughts
I'm so overwhelmed that Neste milk tea already offers these 3 flavors that are easily available in our local supermarkets and convenience stores. Aside from saving much because of the big price difference, that genuine taste individually isn't compromised at all. Winner! In my opinion, it's better to drink this cold with ice cubes. One sachet is enough to fill one mug with water. That way, the flavor is intact and not bland or too sweet either. 

If you're looking for a good alternative found in the market, then this is the one for you. Try it and definitely it will tickle your taste buds. Have you tried this already? Let's share ideas. That's it for now. Thanks for dropping by. Always be happy and do your best.

Family Dinner at STK Ta Bai and Coffee Time

Hi guys! How are you doing these days? Today, I'll share a family gathering this time. We were scheduled to meet a family friend who is from Manila and just came to Cebu for a short business trip. Of course, meeting family members means introducing good old Cebuano dishes. I mean going to Paolito STK Bai. Yes! You heard it right. 

Where is it located?
It is located in Sky Park, third floor,  SM Seaside City Cebu  City, SRP.

My Vlog Experience Right Here

My Top 5 Reasons to Visit This Restaurant
1. The interiors / atmosphere
Truly, they showcase vintage art pieces ranging from furniture, table set up, antique picture frames and even more. Going there somehow gives you a glimpse of how Cebu looked like back in the day.

2. Foods
Of course, the foods they serve are delicious and  truly hit the spot. They are always recommended even by tour guides in and out of the country.

3. The price point
Though they have maintained the quality of their foods, I must say they prices are technically reasonable. Just a good balance of portion and price range. Besides, most of the foods are meant for sharing.

4. The variety of dishes
Yes to this. They have all sorts of foods from serving meat, seafoods, vegetable dishes and even good desserts and beverages. Truly they cater all kinds of people from young to old and both male and female alike.

5. Cleanliness and customer service
I must say that their cleanliness is really evident.  Everything is cleaned properly and decent enough. In addition, their staff is also approachable and accommodating. Truly, it feels like a second home.

Well, if you ask me, I really had a good time having a good conversation with family and ending it with a good kind of coffee. It really completed my day. Sometimes it's good to be offline and connect with your loved ones.  Moments like this always last a lifetime I believe.

Thanks for visiting my blog guys. I appreciate your time and effort. As always, choose happiness in everything that you do.

Seafoods and Ribs Warehouse Restaurant at SM Seaside City Cebu

Welcome back to my blog. I'll bring you along with me as we explore this new restaurant in the city. The name is Seafoods and Ribs Warehouse Restaurant. It's famous for their seafoods and freshly cooked ingredients which customers can actually choose the kind of cooking according to their liking. 

Where is it located?
It's located in Skypark, 3rd floor, SM Seaside City Cebu, SRP, Cebu City .

My TOP FIVE Recommended Dishes 
1. Their house special - Their RIBS  (It comes with a side dish of veggies and mashed potato already)
2. Their sisig 
3. Chopseuy
4. Tuna Kinilaw 
5. Garlic Shrimps

My Vlog Experience Here

That's all for now my friends. I recommend this place if you fancy seafoods and good atmosphere at the same time. Just do be careful with the prices though since the seafood prices depend on its weight per grams. Always ask and confirm the total price before having the foods cooked before you get a shock of your like. Just kidding though.

As always, take care. Hope you have a wonderful day ahead.
