You Can Do It All with Pantene’s New Pro-V Core Activ Formula

I hated my thin, wavy, and difficult to understand hair. I can’t wear it down nor let it grow past my shoulders. I can’t even braid it because it becomes more unmanageable. But since I am always on the go, I settled with ironing and rebonding. My hair became straight and presentable, however; I realized that I hated ironing and rebonding even more. My hair isn’t as soft as before. Thanks to Pantene’s New Pro-V Core Active Formula, I can now forget about all that and wear my hair any way I like. Long, short, up or down, doesn’t matter anymore. Pantene’s new Pro-V Core Activ formula penetrates deeper into the core and gives you a stronger, shinier hair inside and out. So whatever hairstyle you choose won’t be a problem. You can do it all! Pantene’s new Pro-V Core Active formula is available in three products. I received all three from Belle de Jour and tried all of them for 7 days. Pantene Pro-V Shampoo and Conditioner I have a certain schedule when it …

Feel the Power of Olay

A few weeks ago, I was asked to help out with some tasks. I’m the type who can’t say “no” right on the spot. But if you ask me nicely, I’ll do what I can. And I did. Since the task can only be done after-hours, I haven’t had enough sleep. And we all know what that plus stress can do to our body. Then one day, I received a text message and an email. Tap here. Click here. Click there. Submit. A few days after, I received a package containing a cute white pouch from Viviamo Inc (Belle de Jour Planner) and the first thing I read was: “You’re at Your Best Beautiful When You Live Life to the Fullest”.

Pantene Pro-V: Your Daily 3 Minute Miracle

Got three minutes? I would like to introduce the Philippine’s first Cosmopolitan Beauty Crush – Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner. If it smoothens three months of damage in three minutes, it’s more than a conditioner. It’s a miracle! I’m a Pantene user for quite a long time and I am happy to get the first dibs on their latest hair product. (Thanks to Belle de Jour (BDJ) !!! 🙂 ILoveBDJ) I know what you’re saying. Why is it always about hair? My younger self used to be puzzled on why people (both men and women) are obsessed with their hair. Living in a tropical country (any actually), the hair suffers from the sun or the weather itself. Similar to the way we take care of our skin and health, the hair also needs special attention.

Choose to Shine with Pantene Pro-V Hair Treatment Kit

Last December, I have been receiving newsletters from Belle de Jour about the Free Pantene Pro-V Hair Treatment Kit. It was only this January that I remembered to sign up. After a few days, my Free Pantene Pro-V Hair Treatment Kit finally arrived.   Yes, you read the word “Free” right. Bellas just needed to sign up and fill in the form to claim the Pantene Pro-V Hair Treatment Kit. Condition the Hair The kit has two bottles in it. The first is the Pantene Pro-V Daily Intensive Conditioner which helps repair damaged hair tips. When we say damaged hair tips, it means split ends. There are various reasons why this occurs. It may be due to excessive use of hot styling tools, styling products or chemical treatments. It may also be caused by the weather itself or improper hair care. The Pantene Pro-V Daily Intensive Conditioner prevents this from happening because it contains 80% more conditioning ingredients than regular Pantene conditioners. It seals every strand of the hair avoiding protein loss and damage progression. …

Loving Nanny Rose’s Gugo & Lawat Anti-hairfall Shampoo

A woman’s hair is her crowning glory. Whether long or short as long as it looks perfect, then no problem. However, there is a so-called hair fall. Falling hair can be annoying. You can see strands of hair on your comb, pillow or clothes. Don’t fret because everyone experiences this. Of course, the cause of hair fall varies. But you can search for ways to control it perhaps by changing your shampoo. Last December, I decided to look for a better shampoo. Everyone knows that it’s a difficult task. Even if a friend recommends a certain brand, it does not mean it will work for you. So I went to the mall and found Nanny Rose’s Gugo & Lawat Anti-hair fall Shampoo. Gugo & Lawat These are the keywords I was looking for. My grandmothers always say that back in the old days they only use natural hair care aids. The most common are gugo and lawat. Gugo (Entada phaseoloides) is a large tree with substantial stems and barks. The plant grows in Mt. Banahaw …
