Protect Your Kids Now by Striking Down Mosquitoes #KAAGAPAYMO #METROBUZZBLOGGERS #ATCHEALTHCARE #ProductReview

I am a mother of two and I know how it feels to attend sick children. There are many ways on how we can protect our kids, but the question is can we handle it without breaking our budget?

Protecting our kids its also like taking care of our clothes in our closets, we arrange and organize our clothes to avoid messy cabinets and at the same time to make our closet neat and clean. I remember, my mother will always put "Naphthalene moth balls" to keep moths out of clothing.

On the other hand, kids are very sensitive, we bath and care for them to make them healthier and clean. We always make sure that our kids will not go to mosquito filled places, but sometimes kids are very adventurous, they roam around, run everywhere, looking for something that catches their curiosity. We cannot STOP them, that is why parents especially mothers often feel worried and anxious because of the different environments kids experience, they become more prone to borne diseases such as Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya.  Don't worry mothers for we have partners when it comes to protecting our kids -  ATC Strike Patch  

STRIKE PATCH is a product of extensive research and development that guarantees top quality and excellent promising health results which makes it absolutely different from other repellents.

ATC Strike Patch is an adhesive patch or a stick-on mosquito repellent. Its simply looks like a sticker with cute designs that are made of 100% pure and natural essentials oil. It is safe as it is 100% DEET-free and the effects last for 48 hours (that is for 2 days)!

Strike Patch is available at 10’s per box
for P380.00 and 2’s for P76.00.

Just one patch on the clothes and your children are already protected from disease carrying, irritating and infectious mosquitoes!

What I like with the product is that, it is easy to use. No more hassle for mommies like me.

A stick on the child's clothing is just enough - your child is SAFE from ZIKA with Strike Patch!

And by the way, Strike Patch is for adults too!

And to keep our family away from mosquitoes in different ways possible, ATC offer other STRIKE VARIANTS.

Aromacology Sensi Magic Cushion Anti-Aging Skincare

Whew! I've been away from reviewing product line that long!? Got busy when my other sites, PAL RAINE and ANYTHING ABOUT DAVAO in posting press releases and giving information for Davao people. Time really flies when you are busy and having fun with works, that I didn't realize it was a month ago when I last posted a product review entry here in my blog. Are you still here? I hope you are!

Anyway, as an officer/member of the Davao Digital Influencers, one of our mission is to support and promote product brand from MSME's (Micro Small Medium Enterprises) here in the Philippines especially in Davao. I've been a supporter of this brand for almost a year now, and still excited to promote its product line.

One of the things that I worried about is my skin most specially my face. I love my complexion, but since I'm 40 now, I need something that can help me look better for the Holiday season.

Aromacology Sensi has been my skin and beauty partner for years now. (You can read my post here and click for more about Aromacology Sensi in my blog site). I had a quite makeover and treatment from them, what I like with the brand is that they use 98% made in raw materials like herbs, flowers, and fruit extracts plus their skin care products are best for Asian's sensitive skin and it is a BFAD approved product!


Magic Cushion become a fad via the list of awesome Korean Beauty Products, but to tell you the gist they are literally cushions soaked in BB cream ( known as "blemish balm" or "blemish base") inside a compact, paired with an applicator puff.

The formula in the Magic Cushion is apparently same as that of a bottled foundation but what makes it magic it all comes with collagen extract that restores skin elasticity, giving it a smooth, supple appearance combined with hamamelis and bamboo extract that soothe and hydrates skin.

Another thing is the blue applicator puff that comes in a compact, it is a non-absorbent.

Yes! A non-absorbent puff. Sound confusing? Right? When we used old sponge puff it absorbs the makeup and expels the content to our face with pressure is applied. And you need to blend the the puff to distribute it evenly to your face.

While the special blue puff has minimal absorption to give your face a flawless, dewy glow. Just pat onto face!

The excellent coverage leaves skin flawless, refined and photo finish, concealing the signs of time left on fine lines and discolorations with SPF 50+/PA++.


Filipinos and most of the Asians are obsessed with lightening the skin. There are many that love and embrace their natural skin color, it's just a matter of choice. Here in the Philippines, there 3 ways in lightening and making our skin to glow: the Papaya soap, IV Glutathione and Magic Cushion.

It was my first time to use a magic cushion, but I already read a lot of positive reviews from different brands. Actually, I'm planning to buy online, but because I see the poster of Aromacology Magic Cushion I have to change my plan.

I tried the magic cushion. As for the after results, I did not notice a sudden change to my face skin tone, but I did notice that wrinkles did not occur on my face, skin was smooth, moisturized and glowing! Then after 10 minutes, I've notice that my face lightens.

The result was amazing! No wonder everyone loves magic cushion!

For the price, it is very affordable compared with other products. If your thinking to buy online but you have budgeted money, why not try Aromacology Magic Cushion.

They have an Introductory Price of PHp600 this run until December 20, 2016 only.

It Starts in Paris: The Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2016 #vsfs2016 #vsparisfs2016

This is the first time I'm gonna post something different. I will not do product review but rather write something about the most talk about event of this year, especially to all Fashionista - the Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2016.

It Starts in Paris

As of this writing, we have 25 days-22 hours-06 minutes to witness the grandiose and magnificent appearance of the Victoria's Secrets Angels Line Up wearing different styles and designs of sexy lingerie and sleepwear, to be held at the Grand Palais in Paris this December 5, 2016, Monday, 10 PM EST.

A Retsospective: Exhibit their 2015 Runaway at their new 5th Avenue Store

This is the first time that Victoria's Secret Fashion Show comes to the City of Lights for their Parisian Fashion Show.


Showcasing BEAUTIFUL - the bra behind 2016 Fantasy Bra by Victoria Secret.

Jasmine Tookes try on $3 Million Bra 

Introducing the $3 Million bra "The 2016 Bright Night Fantasy Bra" designed exclusively for Victoria's Secret by Eddie Borgo. It takes 700 hours in making this bra, because of its meticulous and very precise details: 9,000 gemstones. 450 carats.

See video here, how Jasmine Tookes discover she'll have the honor of wearing the 2016 Fantasy Bra for this year runway show.

I feel sad with the news, that Janine Tugonon misses the slots as one of the Victoria's Angels. It was a nice try Janine, better luck next time.


There are 500 girls hoping to be part of the show. A tough job indeed for casting director, Mr. John Pfeiffer.

Good luck and congrats to the chosen one.

Anyway, let us meet the 12 Victoria's Secret Angels Line Up:


When we talk about VS Fashion, there is a unique and stand up artistic vision behind every look of the models wearing it. The incredible designs and styles come to life as they hit the runway.
