I received an email welcoming me to their gorgeous family, HALI Angels. It was unexpected but I’m glad I was chosen to be one of the HALI Angels.

Few of the responsibilities of being a brand ambassador is to test their products, give a feedback and share the experience. So, here are my thoughts about HALI Cosmetics Lip Blurs. NO FILTERS.

The Lip Blur Tints are lip creams with a matte finish. These lip blurs kept my lips moisturized, all thanks to the well thought contents – with vitamin E and aloe Vera extract.

HALI Cosmetics have 8 shades that are different hues of red, pink and orange as shown above. My personal favorite is Skylar because of its muted pink shade that’s very close to a nude brown-pink color.

I love the fact that HALI Cosmetics isn’t doing false advertisement.

The Lip Blurs really do have a gorgeous pigment, creamy texture, lovely scent and non-dehydrating.

It is also true that the lip blurs last long. I had a hard time removing the tints on my skin while doing the swatch test as you can see on my video.

I tried to use water and soap to remove it but nothing happened. So, I tried to use an alcohol, and a little bit of tint came off. Next, I used an oil-based makeup remover but it’s still there. Lastly, I tried mixing alcohol and makeup remover (I do not recommend this step for people who have sensitive skin) but as you can see, there’s still a good amount of stain left.

According to the CEO, she carefully picked and examined as to which shade will match the names of the people who was there with her when she was at her lowest in the year 2019-2020. According to her, those people gave her the courage to continue life and manifest positivity.

The ingredients used to make their Lip Blurs include Rose Water, Vitamin E, Flavorant, Premium Colorant, Talcum, Kaolin and Food Preservative.

In a world where ideas of being a woman are often defined by stereotypes and media messages, it’s quite common to be subjected to gender stereotypes that have little to do with your abilities or appearance. While these harmful preconceptions have been ingrained in society, social media has connected millions of women who continuously inspire each other to defy gender stereotypes. 

Personal testaments from stories of how women choose to live their lives regardless of stereotypes, serve as daily inspiration for the young generation and for women that have yet to realize who they want to be. Filipinas are no exception to the powerful transformations that empowerment and confidence can give.

Here are four empowering stories from Filipinas who have not let gender labels limit them. Discover how they built up their confidence through a common denominator.

Inspired by her dad, a scuba diver, Gabbi Garcia has dreamt of seeing marine life up close as a kid and has since grown a love for the sea. “Despite hearing doubts from other people, I kept going to reach my dream. As young as 10 years old, I got my license as a junior open water diver. And just 2 years ago, I’m finally a certified advanced open water diver!” Gabbi encouraged others to go after their own dreams and shared that having confidence is important in achieving such. “Having great hair is one of the factors that help boost my confidence as a woman and it makes me feel that I can conquer anything… I can really say that being #Salontastic has helped me boost my confidence as a woman.”

 “Never underestimate the power of great hair and strong and confident women!” Nostalgic about her bustling schedules of taping from one location to another, Sofia Andres looks back on her heartwarming and humbling memories as an actress.

“Even though it was super hectic and exhausting, I did not give up and stayed extra confident in my scenes because I knew I would stay #Salontastic throughout the day! To all the girls dreaming of the same, may it be an being an actress, a mom, a content creator, businesswoman, be who you want to be! Let this be the sign to start your Salontastic journey!”

“Great hair makes empowered and confident women! Having the best version of my hair everyday makes me feel that I can conquer anything.” Kylie Verzosa shared as she looked back on her memories of filming her upcoming movie. “Some scenes required big movements, but I never backed down and stayed extra confident in my scenes because I know I stay #Salontastic throughout the day! To all the girls dreaming of the same, let this be the sign to start your Salontastic journey and be the action star in your own movie!”

Anne Curtis asked her followers on Instagram, “What’s the favourite hairstyle you’ve had that made you feel strong and empowered?” She proudly tells, “Whether short, long, coloured, or untouched. You do you. Sometimes our hair can give us that extra touch of feeling empowered! No matter my hairstyle – even fresh out of the shower I feel that way with Pantene. No matter the variant it’s always helped me have Salontastic moments!”

On days when you feel like crushing gender labels, the Pantene Collagen Miracle Intensive Serum Conditioner might just give you the confidence boost you need to power through. This conditioner is #Salontastic in a bottle. It’s formulated with a blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, miracle serum, and real collagen — sealing in nutrients and locking in moisture, turning dry, damaged, frizzy hair into shiny, smoother hair every day. 

Even the slightest ounce of confidence through smooth and #Salontastic hair can transform a woman’s outlook, freeing them from the boundaries of labels and other people’s opinions. Pantene gives you strong and Salontastic hair to redefine yourself, confidently, however you want to be.

Located in the heart of the city, visit at your convenience and immediately bask in the comfort of a luxurious environment while expecting careful and meticulous skin analyses, state-of the art technology, and individually-crafted services that provide expert treatment and improvement of your skin, body, and overall well-being.

In the age of social media, beauty may seem only skin deep. But in reality, it is not. More than taking a perfect selfie, it is creating that great first impression, having self-confidence, and feeling good that makes one truly beautiful. And sometimes, it is those scars, acne marks, rosacea, and dark spots that weigh one down. In fact, these are the main reasons for having a skin care consultation in a clinic. At last, the solution has been found to solve all of these common skin care problems, and more.

The first use of lasers in medicine was in 1962 to remove tattoos. Half a decade later, laser technology has improved drastically, expanding its use in the medical and cosmetic field to treat a myriad of skin problems. PICOPLUS™ is the latest in skin laser technology that introduces a faster, better, and safer way to remove scars, tattoos, acne marks, and even melasma. It sets itself apart from traditional lasers as it can deliver energy in a fraction of a second! This speed allows fewer treatments with less downtime. And now, world-class boutique dermatology clinic Luminisce brings the country’s first ever PICOPLUS™ platform in the country.

AUG 1, THU.jpg

PICOPLUS™ is a versatile, non-invasive, and US FDA-approved laser that can treat various skin pigmentation problems such as melasma, pigmentation and pigmented lesions, tattoos, acne and acne scars, age spots, freckles, uneven skin tone, and other difficult skin cases that do not respond to similar technologies. It is the most advanced Nd:YAG laser to date. Nd:YAG stands for Neodymium: yttrium-alumunium-garnet, and is a crystal used as a laser medium. The Nd:YAG laser is non-ablative, which means that it can heat tissue without destroying it. It can treat a wide range of skin problems such as spider veins, age spots, freckles, dark spots, and more. Compared to the current Q-switched Nd:YAG nanosecond pulse lasers that have been used for decades, the PICOPLUS™ works in high power, quick, and short 450 picosecond laser pulses instead of nanosecond pulses, as longer pulse durations mean a higher risk of damaging the surrounding tissue and less efficacy in treatment. With short pulses in high energy, the pigment is destroyed into smaller pieces, making elimination faster, producing more visible results in every treatment, and allows for shorter sessions overall. While current lasers deliver results as well, it is still limiting in terms of color density, side effects, lack of power, and pain tolerance for the patient.


With the efficacy and precision of the picosecond laser, PICOPLUS™ still stands out from the rest as it produces the highest energy (1.8GW) compared to other picosecond lasers. Moreover, it has mastered Asian skin like never before, when previous models only allowed treatment for lighter skin types. Its versatility, offering 4 wavelengths, means that it can achieve far better results as each treatment may be customized depending on the patient’s skin condition. Its effectivity, precision, and reliability make it an exceptional treatment option that meets patient expectations with guaranteed results.


Luminisce is the first dermatology clinic to bring PICOPLUS™ in the country. Its premium services not only addresses skin care needs, but the patient’s overall health across skin care, physical fitness, and psychosocial well-being. The clinic’s physician, Dr. Kaycee Cuevas Reyes-Bacani, has practiced dermatology in several areas both locally and internationally. She is one of the few in the country to have recently completed a Master of Science in Preventive Medicine at International University in Dresden, Germany that specializes in preventive and regenerative medicine.

Self-love and self-care should be everyone’s top priority. Finding a place to help you achieve that is a bit hard, but what if I told you that I found The Place. One of the best places to consult our beauty and wellness related problems. – Victoria Skin Philosophy. It is designed to help women and men address top concerns in their continuous pursuit of beauty and wellness.

With a minimal yet posh look, the beauty hub’s interiors, from the comfortable receiving area to lighting elements, scream optimum relaxation, serenity, and calm perfect to start and even cap off anyone’s exhausting week.

Victoria Skin aims to go beyond quick fixes, to understand the very core of how one can achieve true & lasting beauty and emphasize on the concept of beauty as a lifestyle and mindset.

They are determined to deliver the safest and most effective services. Victoria Skin houses state-of-the-art beauty equipment at par to global competition with its highly trained doctors and aestheticians providing genuine care and excellent service.

Among the most demanded treatments is Revlite, a non-invasive laser treatment that stimulates collagen which brightens and smoothens the skin by targeting skin pigmentation, sun damage, enlarged pores, wrinkles and lines and aging skin.


For patients struggling with tattoo regret, PicoFade is a suitable laser treatment that activates your body’s natural skin cell processes for healthy and more youthful-looking skin.


They also offer Thermage Skin Tightening is a cosmetic procedure that can effectively and safely treat fine lines and wrinkles on most visible areas including the face, neck, eyes, and hands. It can also smooth uneven, dimpled skin on the body and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.

To combat aging signs, Ulthera is an FDA-clearednon-invasive procedure to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow which uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime.

Playing a crucial part to Victoria Skin’s holistic approach to wellness is Victoria Sports, the country’s largest indoor sports complex that offers up-to-date equipment and facilities for sports, strength and conditioning, and even arts and leisure.

We all know that glowing skin is a result of a proper skin care and a healthy lifestyle. Some of the people I know don’t have time to go to the gym or even eat a full meal without rushing, like me. But there are other ways to stay fit and healthy like pacing around the house or walking to the market and back, taking advantage of the extra time you have by stretching while doing your chores. Stretching helps us stay healthy and fit, and it also slows down aging if done regularly, just like glutathione.

It is a fact that by maintaining our glutathione levels, aging individuals may prevent age-related cognitive decline. Decreased levels of glutathione in aging subjects causes oxidative stress, which can cause bone breaking and osteoporosis.

Glutathione, just like Vitamin C & E, is an important antioxidant in the body. It’s actually the most powerful antioxidant and it’s naturally produced by our liver. Glutathione prevents damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species.

I have been taking NutriWhite for more than 2 weeks now and I’m feeling good. They claimed that you can get your money back if you haven’t seen any visible results in 14 days and hey they can keep the money because for me this is a good buy! I suggest you should take these too.


My acnes are finally leaving my restless face one by one, and I’m loving it. I have noticed that I am becoming livelier and bubblier, even without my morning coffee or my hot choco.

Maybe NutriWhite is also the reason why I feel like my skin is glowing and I can see that it’s becoming lighter. Experts said that lightening of the skin is glutathione’s good side effect and I’m not going to complain because I want my skin to appear lighter.

What I love most about NutriWhite is that it has Vitamin C too. Vitamin C is also anti-aging, it improves blood circulation and can help fight cold and flu.

Glutathione, being the most powerful antioxidant has a lot of benefits such as the following:


  • Reduces oxidative stress
  • May improve psoriasis
  • Reduces cell damage in alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Improves insulin resistance in older individuals
  • Increases mobility for people with peripheral artery disease
  • Reduces symptoms of Parkinson’s disease
  • May help fight against autoimmune disease
  • May reduce oxidative damage in children with autism
  • May reduce respiratory disease symptoms
  • and many more…


I have been wanting to try gluta drip and push but I think this one is the easiest way (yet) for me, due to my busy schedule. I don’t have much time to go to a clinic or to the experts for it. I recommend you do the same, take NutriWhite or their MultiWhite.

If you are still not convinced and want to know more about the product, visit their website at nutrition.ph or their facebook page. They are on instagram too, so follow them!
