Review: Bathe with Lux

Hey There!
Thank you for Reading My Blog!

How has your day been? I hope it’s doing really fine! After a long time, I’m going to review a product! Blame it in my procrastination; I was not able to write a blog post. Thankfully, my hibernation has ended. Back to my passion again! So timely for December indeed, have you started shopping? If you ask me, nope, I didn’t. 

Last October, I received a loot bag from Lux. When I received the bag, I was excited to open it because of the over powering fragrance that comes from it. It is soothing to the nose and calming to the senses.  They have a note that encourages users to post their experiences online.

This is how this idea of making a blog post started.

Let me share to you my experience with using Lux.

Whats on the Loot?

Other Variants Available are Soft Touch, White Impress and Love Forever

My impressions: 

  •   I love the very relaxing fragrance. It gives me a calming effect.

  •   I love the packaging it has a mysterious vibe. The packaging is catchy. It did not conform, most soap packaging in the market uses light colors.

  • They stand in being unique. Even there soap is molded intricately.

My Experience Using the Product:

When I first tried Lux Body wash, I really loved the smell in my skin. It lasts; my officemate noticed the differently good smell. They even asked what soap I used. The one I got was magical spell (as shown above). My problem was, it did not compliment my skin type. It made my skin slightly dry. I still continued using it, and my skin adopted. But sometimes, the dryness got back. I just put lotion with moisturizer to back me up.

Prices in the Market:

The 110g bar are priced at 39 pesos while the Lux body wash 200ml is priced at 120-125 pesos depending on the variants

Where can you purchase?

Available at leading drug stores, grocery stores and at Lazada.

Will I recommend it?

Yes, I will recommend it but not for people with dry skin.

Will I repurchase?

Yes I will, I want to try the other variants.
Thank you for taking time to read my post. 2015 has been good to me and I would like to share the wonderful moments I have experienced. And for the year 2016, I will be more active in blogging starting 2016 with a blog post! Hope to see you again in 2016 friends!

Ready, Seat Sale!

Hey There!

Thank you for Reading My Blog!

Today’s post is about travel! I always love writing about this topic and end up procrastinating. Finally, I made one! Here’s the question, have you ever dreamed of travelling abroad? I think I know the answer. And probably, what you want to say next. I don’t have budget. Yes, every one of us says it. Budget is a big deal. Plane ticket can empty your wallet! 

Worry no more, airlines nowadays have seat sale to accommodate budget travellers, including me. I have booked two seat sales this year and I did not regret. You too can do it, just have the guts and internet connection to get the deal you wanted. You don’t want to end up envious with your pal showing their best photos on the last weekend getaway. You too can have it, book early, be watchful, seat sale is on the way.

Here is what you need to know during seat sale. (This is based on My Own Experience)

First: Airlines

The first step is to know what airlines company you want to be your air carrier. If you have decided already, it would be easier for you to start your ticket searching. Sign up for the airline website and you will receive exclusive notification for seat sales. I have signed up for Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific. I was able to tract the sales by that. Because of my registration, I knew that the plane bound for Singapore has seat sales. And I never regret that they flooded my email notifications.

Second: Remove Excess

When you book your ticket online, you have the luxuries to remove and add. You can add pre order meals to your incoming flight, assigned seat and excess baggage. You can also remove insurance to lessen your total expenses. It is up to your choice. When I travel, I make sure to add excess baggage for my return ticket due to the “pasalubong” I will bring. Its better sure than pay over the counter. I have tried paying over the counter and encountered long line.

Third: Cash or Credit?

I have tried online booking with Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines. I did not experience hassle except with internet (I will discuss that next chapter). But take note that upon pay out in your booking, the two companies have difference. Cebu Pacific lets you pay with bank or Cebuana Lhuillier the next day, after you pay, you will receive an official receipt together with your itinerary on the email you provided when you booked. But with Philippine Airlines, correct me if I’m wrong you can pay only via credit card or debit card. When I booked and proceed to payout I was asked directly if I will pay via credit or debit which made me assume you cannot booked without having the two cards.

Fourth: Solid Internet Connection

Hah, this one is really important in availing a seat sale. A lot of travellers are just waiting around the corner for seat sale to happen, so you need to be ready when that time comes. I totally can relate to this, having a solid internet connection is really essential in booking. When I booked my flight to Singapore last September, I was really annoyed every time the “connection was reset” would pop-up the screen. Who wouldn’t? You’re very excited on the next step and suddenly it would ruin your hopes? So make sure to have steady internet connection, it would lessen your booking time and give you more chances in getting that next trip you really wanted. Remember, many are on the loop to deprive you of that seat.

There you go! I’m at the end of this long overdue post. I hope this would be the beginning of being active again after months of snoring on my bed. I will be launching a giveaway anytime this month! Hope you will join! I hope that this post have given you idea on what would you do during seat sales. Feel free to comment if you have additional points to add. Advance Merry Christmas! And thank you very much for reading my blog! Until my next post!
