Loving my Bridal Bliss!

Like this post if you are inspired by the promise of wedding bells!

Hello Sunshine!June passed by with such a careful whisper, would you agree? To some, perhaps the month was even capped off by the sweet sound of bells ringing a promise of eternal love--ah yes, the wedding spirit was all over the place, I myself was bitten by the feeling. How, you might ask? Well, through my special Glamourbox Bridal Bliss beauty box,* a selection of premium beauty and skincare products that radiates the promise of your natural beauty, rediscovered.

My beauty box contained the following beauty treats! Personally, I got super excited because there were more skincare items than makeup! Blogging about beauty for almost three years has lead my face to hypersensitivity (after all those swatches and trying and trying and trying of products - boohoo), so yes, I am always so excited to discover gentle skincare that promotes hydration, protection and suppleness.

1. Mustela Stelatopia Cleansing Cream (10ml sample size / Full size 200ml Php 950) - I'm so excited to try this product because I love its promise of protection and hydration in one! This  soothing bath and shower cream vows to protect and hydrate dry skin to regain its suppleness. It's proven safe for babies and adults alike, especially those with eczema and atopic tendencies.

2. ISIS Pharma Dermatologie Teen Derm Gel (10ml sample size / Full size 40ml P450)- Do you have oily skin? Use a gel cleanser! Eliminate all your skin troubles away with this purifying gel cleanser! Formulated for teens and adults, it has oil control and micro-exfoliating properties that reveal brighter, oil-free skin.

3. Physiogel Intensive Cream (Full Size 50ml Php574.50) - Do you experience hyper-dry skin and sensitivity to some skincare products? That means you should be more careful in choosing your skincare for your dry skin needs. Physiogel's gently-formulated range of skincare products is a recommended line for you then. This hypoallergenic, intensive moisturizing cream provides a high level of natural lipids for long lasting hydration of extremely dry, irritated and sensitive skin. For more info, visit Physiogel.com

4. Barenaturals Skin Perfecting Primer (Full Size 30ml Php398) - Using a primer is a must especially if you have oily skin because a primer helps you keep your makeup intact. This non-pore clogging skin primer has the purest natural ingredients that mattifies the face, keeps oil at bay and helps makeup last. For more info, visit MyBareNaturals.com

5. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Moisture Sunscreen (Full size Php460) - This sunscreen provides complete, long-lasting protection against UVA/UVB rays. Its moisturizing formula spreads on smoothy and leaves an ultra-light, non-greasy finish.

6. Barenaturals Lip Stix in Butterfly Kisses (Full size 4g Php148) - Feed your lips with this highly nourishing, color-imparting lip butter! Its yummy peppermint and vanilla scent smells so good and is safe for use even by kids as it's made with all-natural food-grade ingredients. Want to know more about their Lip Stix? Check our my review here.

7. Plana Forma Voucher (Free one Plana Forma class) - In terms of exercise, I have to say Plana Forma is THE ONE! Plana Forma draws inspiration from dance, pilates, yoga, sports and Physique 57 to create a dynamic, highly-effective workout that's highly addicting, fun, intense and challenging to the core! It defines thighs, lifts seat, tones arms and strengthens abdominals to create a lean and sculpted physique that is strong and efficiently mobile.  The voucher entitles the subscriber to a free Plana Forma trial class. Visit their website at Forma-Asia.com

8. Nippon Esthetics Solutions Facial Cleansing Sponge (sample pack 2pcs / Full size 10pcs Php 325) - This hardworking cleansing sponge clears your skin of any makeup residues while letting it breathe. I'll probably reserve this for days when I have a more than the regular layer of makeup to clean off my face--such as after special events, etc.

What is bridal bliss?

To me, bridal bliss isn't about the happiness you get when you decide, get to, and finally be wed to a person who will vow to also love and care for you the rest of his life. It is that, surely, but there is more to bridal bliss than being a bride who is happy. It's about settling down to that state of happiness without fearing the arresting seconds of fear, intimidation and even overwhelming influx of emotions it would entail somewhere down the road.

Being a blissful bride means not fearing what is to come, because you can only hope for the best, now that finally you get to face life and live the life you could've only dreamed about as a kid, to reality. 

Bridal Bliss is the feeling of contentment, and the willingness to share it with your partner--even with friends and family who believes in the love that you stand for. In beauty, looking like a blissful bride is being radiant. Deciding to take care of yourself because you have a whole life ahead of you to want to live in good health and spirit. Bridal blissfulness is about being ready for everything because you are starting with a clean slate, on steady ground, and a hopeful heart. That to me is "bridal bliss". It's the promise you make to yourself where you finally decide to be happy, and live happily ever after--against all odds.
