VLOG : Bluewater Panglao Beach Resort in Bohol

Welcome back to my blog guys. Today I'll highlight another experience featuring one of the famous beach resorts in Bohol. What I mean is the Bluewater Panglao Beach Resort in Bohol. 


Where is it located?
It's located in Danao beach, Panglao island, Bohol. The place offers restaurant, meeting facilities, room services and tours as well. They have the hotel's outdoor pool, garden and a private beach.

My Top 5 Reasons Why We Truly Enjoyed Our Stay
1. Their Hospitality and Warm Smiles
I guess this has to be the top of my list. Their staff and crew are very welcoming, helpful and courteous. It literally felt our second home and the experience was absolutely made more special having them around.


2. The Foods
Of course, this one is also included in the list. Especially when you have their discounted vouchers, the meal set / buffet meal becomes cheaper. I believe food and quality are both not compromised and their restaurant also serves local and international dishes too. Best of both worlds I guess.

3. The serenity of the place
Hands down to this. Once you enter their reception area, I felt like I'm transported into this peaceful haven making me relax and just being one with nature. The serenity of the place calms me down and helps me to meditate and recharge. It's like a reset button.

4. The rooms
We were lucky to have good room facilities that cater to our needs and at the same it was located rightt in front of their outdoor pool making it a perfect location to hang out and have some tea. I have to mention the " Hanging Bed" style which actually elevated its style and comfort.

5. The whole place itself
I like the fact that they have two kinds of swimming pool and a private access to their beach as well. All these are well appreciated by guests like me since it will give more opportunities to explore the place and have different experiences as well. Something extra added always is a good idea.

REVIEW :Jeju Aloe Ice Refreshing Soothing Gel by The Face Shop

As you all know already that I've been a fan of  their soothing aloe gel for the longest time. I was on the hunt of trying something new and one day I saw this one in their physical store. I knew I just had to get it. Why? The idea of JEJU ALOE ICE totally caught my attention. Anyhow, let's continue this review.


What is it about?
This Jeju Aloe Refreshing Soothing Gel is formulated with aloe vera extract from Jeju to soothe and moisturize the skin. It's an innovative product from the gel consistency to like ice ( when placed in the freezer) that is especially formulated to people living in hot and humid places. This product can be used both on the face and all over the body. Also, this product can be used variously for moisturizing, soothing, like a facial pack and after-sun-care. 







Here's the consistency of the product in a room temperature










TIP: For a  more  effective and  soothing  result, you may put this product refrigerated or in the freezer especially during hot summer days before actually using it to boost its effects. Here are the photos of the soothing gel after being chilled.





SIZE: It is 300 ml.
PRICE: It costs P250.
PACKAGING: It comes in this big tub that contains the product. It has a kind of lid that serves as its cover to minimize the product from spilling.
TEXTURE: It feels like a soft creamy texture in a normal room temperature. However, it turns into this slight thicker like a frozen yogurt. Something like that.



PROS
*It is quite reasonably priced in terms of its quantity and offers several uses on the skin.
*It is absorbed very quickly on the skin making the skin soft and hydrated.
* It feels gentle and is very lightweight.
* It gives this healthy texture on the skin making it glow somehow.
*Most importantly, it has many purposes so this makes it a winner in my opinion.

CONS
* It isn't travel-friendly as you can already see. 
*The hydration effect can seem to be temporary so you need to double moisturize to boost moisture.


My Overall Thoughts
Well, I'm pretty satisfied with this product right here. It is really a staple for anyone looking for a  good soothing  gel  and is living in hot tropical countries like me. I  love  the cooling  sensation it gives to  my  skin. Also, I  can  tell my skin always  loves  this  product because  it has this healthy  and  hydrated texture. One  more  thing, this  has  longer lasting effect compared to the normal aloe soothing gel so I now get it why this is priced a bit higher. Will I recommend it? Oh  yes definitely. Also, if you have a matured  skin like mine, then use  this  one with  your other moisturizer to fully boost the hydration on the skin. It works better that way too.

Well, that's about it for me. Hope you find this helpful. Have you tried this product before? What is you go-to moisturizer? I would love to know your thoughts as well. Take care everyone. Always take care of yourself especially your skin.
