Read my follow up blog entries below and see what happened to my pampering session at Nailaholics, Ooh-La-Lash and Hey Sugar. By the way I tried their services and I'll be doing a follow up review on how to take care of your nails, your eyelash extensions and what not to do after a waxing session.

Ooh-La-Lash-Blog Nailaholics Blog Hey Sugar Blog

My last and final stop in this event was here at Ooh La Lash, they are specialized on eyelash extensions and eyelash perming. Here I choose Eyelash extension on Diva. 

Eyelash extension can help us achieve that woke up like this aura, without even putting on a make-up. Lash Extensions or some may call it ‘lash extenders’ are individual strands of synthetic lashes attached to your natural lashes one by one using special glue. They could be the best gift given to some of us who were not born lucky enough to have long, gorgeous, thick lashes. Since applying false lashes everyday can prove to be a painstaking daily beauty episode (not to mention the messy glue application) opting for a safer, more convenient and more natural looking choice is definitely the wiser move! 

On Ooh La Lash, you can choose eyelash length that fits your mood. 

I've been on lash extension salons and they only provide couches for their clients, here on Ooh La Lash clients can go sleep to their beds while doing their lashes. Usually this takes about an hour for the whole process. 

What preparations do I need to do beforehand? 

According to the lash experts at Ooh La Lash, you should: 
  1. Make sure to cleanse your eyes and remove any eye makeup or product applied as it may interfere with the adhesives and may cause reaction.
  2. Make sure you don’t have the following conditions: Conjunctivitis, Cataracts, Glaucoma, Styes, Alopecia, Blepharitis or if you are undergoing chemotherapy.
  3. You cannot have eyelash extensions if you have had an eye operation/eye surgery within the last 6 months.
  4. If you have scarring to the eye area, eyelash extension service should be performed 6 months after the scarred area has been healed.
  5. Contact lenses cannot be worn before and directly after the eyelash extension service.
  6. If you wear glasses, don’t forget to bring these with you so the lash technician can make sure there is room for your lashes to grow.

Lastly, don’t forget to inform the lash technician if you suffer with claustrophobia or have any neck problems. They are well-trained and capable of answering any concern you may have.
You’d be surprised to know that there are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to lash extensions. At Ooh La Lash, you have the freedom to choose your curl, length and thickness. Go for Light and Natural (30-50 lashes)  for natural-looking lashes that would go unnoticed,  Classic  (51-85 lashes)  that’s has the perfect length and curl to add oomph to your everyday look,  Diva (86-130 lashes) for voluminous lashes with ultimate curl and length that scream va va voom! and Vixen (Unlimited lashes) for long and beaut-full lashes to die for.  

Does it hurt? 

Based on my experience on other Lash parlor, the glue that they are using does hurt. It makes my eye tear a lot. Here on Ooh La Lash, the glue that they are using is good for sensitive eye. Frankly I didn't expect that there is no foul odor from the glue and it does not sting my eyes. 

Me and the technician busy attaching the eyelashes

How to take care of your newly vamped lashes?

1. Avoid wetting your lashes.
2. Avoid swimming or exposure to heat
3. Do not apply oil-based creams and lotions on or around your eyes.
4. Do not apply eye or lash makeup.
5. Avoid eyelash tinting, perming or chemical eyelash treatments.
6. Avoid sleeping on side or stomach.
1. Avoid excessive exposure to heat or steam when swimming, showering or exercising.
2. Avoid rubbing your eyes and do not pick or pull your extensions as it might pull off your natural lashes.
3. Avoid using oil based makeup remover as it can weaken the adhesives and might cause your lashes to fall off fast.
4. If you choose to wear mascara, strictly buy the water-based type.
5. Do not use eyelash curlers.

The eyelash extension only last to me for a week, because I wasn't able to take care of it. Sorry Ooh La Lash for it, but their services are good. If only I take good care of my lashes it will last for a month. Be careful eyelash extension is so addictive, it really add a new look to your face. Don't forget to drop by at Ooh La Lash’s newest branch at Unimart, Greenhills, San Juan at the Mezzanine Level and let their expert lash technicians do the magic! Visit for more details! 
Hello again #DashingMomSquad, here is the other part of my pampering day experience now I'm at the Hey Sugar Salon. 

Hey Sugar Salon is known for their Organic ingredients for waxing which is sugar. Upon your entrance at Hey Sugar Unimart Greenhills you will notice that it focuses on girly vintage, colorful, flowery interior that is so cute. Their staff are all accommodating too. At first I thought that Hey Sugar Salon only caters waxing services, but to my surprised they also have eyelash perming and extension.

I opted to take the service for my eyebrows which is eyebrow threading and for the stray hair on my underarm. When I'm not in the mood to pluck my stray hair on my eyebrows I usually go to a Salon to have them done. Threading may have a little bit of pain for first timers, especially on the lower part of the eye near the eyes.

Image from Yogo and Cream site
Threading is not only for eyebrows, but can be done on all of your facial hair, on your body even to your underarm.

So here is my before and after threading picture
I can see that my eyebrows now have a cleaner edges. After I'm done with my brows I go in their treatment room to have my underarm done. Yes, it is still a cozy flowery theme.

As I've said before that Hey Sugar have this 100% Organic ingredients to their sugar wax. Do you want to know what will be the benefit if you choose only the organic ingredients? Read the details below:

1. Less health risks

As said before, most of the beauty products available in the market today contain a standard cocktail of chemicals, which do more harm your skin than good. This, combined with exposure to harmful pesticides and preservatives used on the food sold in supermarkets, can give rise to a number of diseases. 

2. Lower exposure to allergens

The chemicals commonly used in beauty products, whether to strengthen its effects or extend shelf life, can cause skin irritation and trigger allergies, particularly for those with sensitive skin. 
Organic products may seem less effective compared to their chemical counterparts, but are gentler on the skin and has no side effects. 

3. Helps nourish your skin

Organic and all-natural beauty products are all plant-based. Meaning, the main ingredients used in these products come from directly from plants or parts of plants and come with nourishing power. In the same way that you are advised to eat your fruits and vegetables regularly to keep the rest of your body healthy, putting on all-natural products on the skin will definitely help supply it with much-needed vitamins and minerals to boost its health.

4. Better quality products

There’s a lot of effort and detail that goes into the production of an all-organic, product, if only because they want to encourage more people to see the benefits of going chemical-free. 

5. (Almost) Painless Regimen

Waxing is arguably one of the most tedious and painful beauty regimens anyone has to go through, but through organic options—particularly sugar wax, which wraps thoroughly around the hair and allow for a cleaner pull, pain is greatly reduced. 

From my personal experience on my underarm waxing, She first ask me If I want Cold or Hot wax. So what's the difference between them? Hot wax - is not that really hot it can be adjusted to your own preferences. It is applied by a wooden stick to the areas with hair, then a clean white cloth will be placed above it. Rubbing it softly so that the wax and hair will stick to the cloth before pulling off quickly. While to Cold wax, it is applied against the direction of your hair growth before pulling off. I remember the esthetician said that If you have a lower pain tolerance you should choose the cold wax. It is also perfect for sensitive skin.

Hey Sugar also offers some body scrub and oils
Both of the procedure cause you pain, but as long as you keep doing it, it becomes bearable to your skin and will guarantee you a hair free body area. The esthetician will also remind you that you should not take a bath or put on water to the area for about 8 hours because it have an open pores.

Drop by to their newly opened branch at Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon comes in to save the day! Using only 100%naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax— you get a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free. With its recent opening in the newly renovated Unimart in Greenhills Shopping Center – Hey Sugar keeps on sharing the “organic way of life” to more and more people in the Metro.

I'm sure that you are thrilled to know this hack and it came from the professional from Nailaholics Unimart Greenhills.

Some tips for a Healthy and Longer color Nails

  1. Always Moisturize. Like our skin, nails need to be moisturized too to prevent breakage and chips.
  2. Always use a base coat before painting color on. This is the best necessity if you cared enough for your nails, like Nailaholics mandatory service when painting a nail. This will protect your nails from staining and also acts as a great adhesive for the polish ensuring lasting color.
  3. Apply thin coats of polish with every stroke. It dries quickly and doesn't cause bubbles. To do this just run the tip of the applicator to the opening of the nail polish bottle.
  4. Don't be on hurry on putting all the layers of the nail polish. Wait a couple of minutes between each coat to make sure the nail polish adheres properly to its base.
  5. But if you are really in a hurry, you can dip your nails in an ice cold water for a quicker drying of nail polishes.
  6. To extend the life of your manicure, apply really thin coats of topcoat every other day.
  7. Like my hair, I always put a cuticle oil for my nails to moisturize the skin. These are some of the helpful tips you can do to make those beautiful colored nails last longer.

Filipino Moms exert effort on preparing their kids baon for school. It is the most special love that our kids can bring to the school and I know it is hard to decide and find the perfect healthy food choice that our kids will surely eat and enjoy. But nowadays, this combination can be challenging to find, especially in kid's beverages. So here I am again recommending my drink choice for your kids to bring. Introducing Pop Tops: Australia's Favorite Kids Juice Drink. 

Harvey was excited seeing the bottles
The design of the bottle is perfect to attract kids but it is not just the package it is the whole Pop Tops including the juice itself. Each Pop Tops comes in a handy-lunch box sized 250ml serving, perfect for little tot's drinking needs, and for our moms to carry on our purse.

Pop Tops bottle fits perfectly to the tiny hands of my #LittleSamson Harvey, don't worry mommies our little ones can't make a mess because of it's small drinking spout compared to the ordinary bottles. Harvey is loving the pop-up cap design of this bottle it makes easier for him to drink and close the bottle. With the right serving size, we moms will have a peace of mind that our kids get the most nutrients they need in the amount that they want. 

Asking where Pop Tops are made from? Pop Tops is made from real fruit juice, with 30 percent less sugar and less sodium, no artificial colors , flavors or sweeteners. Pop  Tops juices are made in Australia, with the highest quality and safety standard that our children deserve. 

There are only two flavors available at the market apple and orange flavors. 
Apple Flavor Pop Tops
Orange Flavor Pop Tops
Pop Tops also introduced some colorful characters to add fun to our kid's drink. Led by Alfi Apple and Oli Orange. Aside from being a daily kid's beverage, Pop Tops is so attractive and engaging that it can be an ideal giveaway for birthday parties and other special occasions.

"Pop Tops was developed with health and safety in mind.  It is not enough that each child is satisfied. They have to benefit from what they consume in the long run. Each drink they consume is an investment in their future health, and Pop Tops is the only kids beverage that delivers this in a way that children will love, " says director Neil Vincent Ching

"One of the main dilemmas parents have is persuading their children to eat or drink what they have prepared. Pop Tops priorities to make the beverage attractive and easy-to-use for your child, so that they can have all the nutrients in a drink they can enjoy. This makes life a lot easier for busy parents who want the best for their children," shares Atlas Global Advantage managing director Hans Nathan Ching. 

Comparing to other drinks, Harvey is loving this drink and he already recognized the bottle itself on what flavor is on it. I can say that this drink is a good replacement for a squeezed juice that I'm sure that Harvey will enjoy. So try out this Pop Tops juice and find it at the following stalls and supermarkets Sm Snack Exchange, Rustans Supermarket, Robinsons Supermarket and SM Hypermarket nationwide.
