Hello everyone! Here’s a quick roundup of the things that I discovered over summer. This roundup is mix of products that you can use at home, for yourself, your kids or even products you can eat! Heehee. I think I’ll be doing this whole roundup thing more often as I have a lot of products that I would like to share with all of you. Some I only discovered through friends while others, I’ve been following on social media. And because I like to spread good vibes, (and actually, naghahanap lang ako ng kadamay mag-shopping) here are my summer finds.
First, let’s start with skin and hair products. My first encounter with Souq Organics was a few weeks ago when Em, the owner sent me a box. OMG. First time to try Moroccan Argan Oil products apart from the oil! They also have soap and lotion too!
THE SOUQ ORGANICS BOUTIQUE is a premium boutique of carefully chosen products from locations off the beaten path catering to the discerning tastes of the Asia-Pacific Markets. Chosen products are not only good for you, but also organic, fairly-traded and planet-friendly.
Next I tried the Souq Organics Moroccan Argan Oil on my face and used it as my make up base. The result? Pa-dewy freshness look!
I shall try the massage oil and soap next time but as far as I know, I’m loving the brand as the products I’ve tried work well on my skin.
THE SOUQ ORGANICS products are available at the following stores:
PCX Greenbelt 4
PCX Alabang Town Center
PCX Rockwell, Powerplant Mall
PCX Robinsons Ermita
LANDMARK MAKATI Level 1 Department Store Organic Section
LANDMARK TRINOMA Level 1 Department Store Organic Section
Next is for all the kikay moms and daughters who love prettifying their nails. Have you seen the Candylicious Summer Collection of Girlstuff?
Our toes painted with Girlstuff Forever polish in Candylicious Summer Collection.
Girlstuff polish is free from the 3 harmful chemicals usually found in polishes: Formaldehyde, Toluene and Di-buytl Phtalates. They’re of high shine and color vibrance, durable, quick-dry and applies streak-free. They’re available locally and the summer collection is only at Php 100 each!
Girlstuff nail polish is located at Girlstuff Nail Polish Bar in SM Megamall, SM North Edsa and SM Mall Of Asia. It is also available at Rustans and SM Department Stores Children’s Accessories Department.
For those going to the beach or doing an activity under the sun this summer, don’t forget to lather up on sunscreen. Beach Hut has a wide range of products for you and your kids- Beach Hut. Did you know that Beach Hut is a local brand? I didn’t either. I just learned that they are during the luncheon event I attended months ago.
Beach Hut SPF 36, Beach Hut SPF 75, Beach Hut Max SPF 100, Beach Hut Face SPF 65, Beach Hut Kids Max SPF 100 and Beach Hut Hair And Scalp. All are non-greasy and protests your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays while still being safe and gentle on skin. I particularly love the hair & scalp spray as its something new to me. For someone who loves tanning, I always dislike the effect of having dry hair and flaky scalp after a few minutes under the sun. With Beach Hut Hair & Scalp spray, I need not to worry about these problems anymore. Yay!
Beach Hut is available at Mercury Drug, Watsons, S&R, PCX, R.O.X., Rustans Supermarket, Robinsons Supermarket, Cash & Carry, Hi-Top Supermarket, Petron Treats, Pioneer Supermarket, Shopwise, Unimart, Bora Budget Mart, Stoked, Chris Sports, Island Souvenirs, Planet Sports. Online they’re available at www.bdjbox.com and www.ilovekoi.com.ph
A few days ago, I received a sweet surprise from my Sunsilk Hairkada.
What’s fruity always makes me happy! So I got extra happy upon receiving these gifts from my Sunsilk Hairkada- Sarah Geronimo, Julia Montes and Jasmine Curtis-Smith gave me flowers, candy and a shawl together with a Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable pack! Yay!
I can’t wait to use the Sunsilk shampoo & conditioner and smell my fruity hair!

Ultra comfortable sleepwear is a must especially during summer. So glad I got these comfy sleepwear from NAIMA- pronounced as “Naa-iy-m-aa” is an Arabic name of a girl which connotes tranquility, comfort and peace.
NAIMA was born out of two college friends’ passion for fashion, business and belief in high quality merchandise without the hefty price tag. In one of their get-togethers, over dinner and cocktails, they realized that comfortable, stylish sleepwear & loungewear are rare to find. It was then they decided to make Naima a reality.
NAIMA advocates a comfortable night’s rest. It is very feminine, soft, and relaxed – perfect for a tranquil sleep and a refreshed morning after. It also believes in stylish comfort that is just right for the home or a nearby mall.
