Bacne no More

VMV Hypoallergenics id sweat acne and overall anti-bacterial monolaurin gel. A beta hydroxy and monolaurin clarifying skin care system.

Package says: Effectively helps manage sweat acne on body skin and other types of acne on the face + body. Complements other active id Toner and id Lotion. Disinfects hands + feet without irritating skin. Helps control shine - keeps skin more matte + fresh.

My Verdict: I love this blue bottle! It's in gel form. It totally eradicated those small bumps on my back ( you know the kind that's not really acne..more of white heads, eww!) I started having them this summer, maybe brought about by the intense heat and sweating. After just a few days of using it, the tiny bumps just dissappeared...amazing! Because it's mild, you can apply it as often as you like. Me, I apply it twice a day, after my morning shower and before I hit the sack. Just make sure it's dry 'tho before you put on your clothes. Tip: Apply, then turn your back from the electric fan =P, works all the time. It's reasonably priced too at P500.oo locally ($20 in their website)

Downside: Packaging is nice but it could've been better if it came with a gel pump..for hygienic reasons

Will I buy again: DEFINITELY! in fact I'm almost out

Hope this helps! =)

Love, Rosie (aka Rosie Dunn)

I am a mom of a 16 year old girl, her name is Charisse. As a mom it's my right..(hihi), and duty to check on her activities.. books she has been reading, games she has been playing...specially now that it's summer. Snooping through her things, I saw this paper back, Love, Rosie.  I leafed through it and found it interesting because of the way it is written.

It's not the typical story in essays and paragraphs but it's all in short notes, e-mail, letters, postcards, IMs exchanged by the characters in the story. I started reading the first part and I got hooked =). As the story progresses you totally forget that what you're reading are a bunch of emails and IMs.

It made me smile, laugh, cry....

It's about two kids, a girl (Rosie) and  boy (Alex), both 5 year olds who were best friends til their adult years. Maintaning the friendship, but deep inside denying that they have feelings for each other...Oh, it's so cute!! Did they end up together??..............

Read it yourself!! LOL

Love, Rosie

GIGA Baby Cold Rub

Giga Cold Rub is a healthier alternative to the good old Vicks. As you can see the contents are all natural. No harmful chemicals, therefore it's safe for our little ones. I massaged it on the chest of my (4 year old) baby and he said - "it's cold mama." Now I'm not sure if it's suppose to be really cold or warm =), nonetheless he looked relieved and went back to sleep. So I guess it's effective =)

Now, I'm not so sure about how much it cost, I lost the receipt. HAHA! If I remember it right it's P70.00. I'm quite sure it didn't go beyond a 100 bucks

It smells so good  and minty.

Will I buy again?  YES, definitely =)

Baby Balm, Baby Soap are also available

You can see Giga products in G/F Vmall Greeenhills, Crossings Dept. Store at Shangrila Mall
