Hello Sunshine! If given an option, I will always go back to the basics and choose more naturally formulated beauty products at any given day. In an age where the modern Filipina is expected to balance (and overcome) the challenges of a manic workplace, the role of a good daughter, and keeping a household (as a wife, as a mother, or a breadwinner), my skin’s health is something I would like to keep in good shape through gentle choices. For this reason, the kinder the skincare, the better of a choice it is for me.

This is where THE bees come in. For 30 years now, Burt’s Bees has been the pioneer for natural skincare and boasts of a simple yet powerful heritage: all-natural ingredients straight from the source: nature. How can this not be good for you, right?


I discovered Burt's Bees through their pomegranate rejuvenating lip balm. It was the yummiest lip balm I've ever tried. It was effective but still sweet to use everyday. Since then, whenever I need a lip balm to heal my cracked lips, I will reach for a Burt's Bees lip balm.

But what is Burt’s Bees all about? I’m here to sum it up in three important pillars of natural beauty, the Burt’s Bees way. Continue reading to learn more about Burt's Bees!

Hello Sunshine! When I think of black nail polish, I think gothic. But since I met Zoya Pixie Dust in Dahlia, I now imagine glamourous when someone says black nail polish! Zoya Pixe Dust is a textured vegan nail polish that is perfectly safe to use. It is free of toluene, formaldehyde, DBP and camphor so your nails stay healthy while getting prettified! 

Zoya Pixie Dust is really interesting to wear because of the grainy effect it leaves as a surface. Personally, I prefer not wearing top coat when using my Zoya Pixie Dust polishes. This way, my #NOTD feels and looks more peculiar than usual.

Hello Sunshine! It's time for another empties post! I have to say, I feel a bit proud of myself for having sustained sharing my empties for the past few months! I really would like to keep this up because sharing what items I've used up is so much fun (than simply reviewing items I've tried).

This batch of empties are mostly bath products. As you would guess, it's so much easier to use up bath products since these products, you use generously every day (or at least I do). Unfortunately, I have no makeup empties for July, but I'm working on it, don't worry!

Oracare Cool and Merrymint Mouthwash

I tried Oracare through SampleRoom, and since then, I would always go back to it as I rotate my mouthrinse. Oracare is a very good mouthwash, especially to those sensitive to the sting. However, if you do love your menthol fizz, you might not like Oracare much. These gargles are very much like water, but the clean is superb. Read my Oracare Merrymint mouthwash review now.
