Dermaroller Facts and Tips

When it comes to skin care treatments, our first thought is the spa and expensive procedures. However, skin care also involves thinning hair, wrinkles, and scars too. Even with all the options available to the public, you may not have heard about what Dermarollers can do for you. Let’s take a look at this treatment method and how it can help.

What is a Dermaroller?

Dermarollers use a process called micro-needling to treat the skin. Using a handheld device with a set of needles on one end, the roller is applied to the skin, gently puncturing the surface to reach the deeper layer of skin beneath it. It creates micro channels in the skin, making it possible for beneficial skin care ingredients to be better absorbed.

Micro-needling may be done using a Dermaroller, Dermapen, or Dermastamp. The Dermaroller uses a barrel shaped cylinder to roll the needles across the skin. The Dermapen has a small set of needles on one end that are pressed onto the skin while the Dermastamp has a larger set of needles that are stamped into the skin. Which device is used depends on the area being treated.

What are the benefits of using a Dermaroller?

One major benefit to using a Dermaroller is the cost. If you have ever used medical lasers to remove a scar, you know how expensive multiple treatments can be. Micro-needling doesn’t cost nearly as much, making it far easier to afford.

Another benefit to using Dermarollers is that the treatment can be used around the eyes and mouth. It’s a fact that lasers cannot safely treat all areas of the face. With it’s assorted sizes and designs, Dermarollers can. That is what every woman would love to have, a clean and smooth skin without the most expensive treatments.

What does the Dermaroller treat?


Dermarollers can treat a variety of skin conditions. These are some of those conditions that can greatly help woman especially those who are nearing their 40’s.

Fine lines & wrinkles – It works very well on fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead.
Scar reduction – While it does take multiple treatments to do so, it can also reduce the appearance of scars. This includes acne scars and stretch marks.
Cellulite – It can reduce or remove cellulite from arms, legs, thighs, stomach and buttocks regions.
Hair restoration – Since products can readily be absorbed, using hair growth medications in conjunction with the Dermaroller will increase hair growth while reducing hair loss.

Who can use a Dermaroller?

While anyone can use a Dermaroller, for some skin care issues, only a professional should provide treatments. Micro-needling uses different lengths of needles. For safety reasons, any treatment involving needles 1.5 mm and longer really should be done in a clinic.

Proper care and use of a Dermaroller
If you purchase a Dermaroller for personal use, it is imperative that you follow steps to properly care for both the Dermaroller and your skin. Read and follow the instructions carefully:

  • Disinfect the Dermaroller with rubbing alcohol and make certain it is clean.
  • Wash your skin with a mild cleanser.
  • Apply a numbing cream to the skin if needed. It can be uncomfortable, depending on the needle depth.
  • Roll the device over your skin back and forth. Always pick up the Dermaroller and relocate to new spot rather than scraping it across the skin. Apply left to right, up and down, diagonally to the left, and diagonally to the right for full coverage.
  • Rinse the skin again.
  • Apply vitamin enriched moisturizers to your skin.
  • Clean the Dermaroller.

Just like any treatments, it is always safe to consult your doctor first for you to learn whether dermaroller is appropriate for your skin condition.

How to get celebrity skin: best collagen in the market

Getting old should not be a dreadful experience. As years add up onto our age, what we should be gaining are experiences and happy memories. But with fine lines and dull skin developing as we age, it is an acceptable fact to fear the effects that comes with ageing. Everyday as we watched the television, we could not help but admire those pretty celebrities and how good their skin was.  There skins are glowing as if they were lucky to be born that way but then while following my favorite korean actress, she mentioned in one of her interviews that although she was born with silky white complexion, she also drink one supplements that help her to stay beautiful as she was.  She mentioned that she’s just lucky to have to many collagen in her body but later on she giggled and mentioned that she is drinking collagen to maintain her youthful look.

Collagen is one of the important structural proteins the body that keeps the skin, nails and hair of the body looking young and healthy. Unfortunately a normal health human being can only produce 10-20 amino acids, an amount less that what the body requires. Thus the importance of taking in amino acid supplements is required to provide the body with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.This is also the same case with collagen. The amino acids in the body makes up the collagen required to maintain that youthful look and the supple and young looking skin we all desire to have.


What are the benefits of collagen to the body?

Collagen are fundamental bricks of the connective tissues in the body. It also promotes weight loss by burning fats. Regular intake of collagen products helps in retaining the youthful glow and tone of the skin, improves energy levels, enhances body composition and fights against ageing and join pains. These are just a few of the benefits one can get from taking in Collagen by You Theory. It also has Vitamin C that helps in the promotion of amino acids in the body.

Low production of collagen  in the body results to sagging skin, wrinkles and age spots, a few of the things we hate about getting old. This can be prevented and the effects of ageing can be hindered and delayed with regular intake of collagen rich supplements. When we reach adulthood, the production of amino acids and proteins in the body lessens, thus taking in collagen rich supplements becomes more of a necessity than a fad or a want.

Suggested use is 3 tablets twice a day but i drink only two tablets twice a day and in a two weeks time, i can see the difference.


Keeping the skin and the body healthy, as a whole requires discipline when it comes to exercise and the food that we take in, that is no secret of celebrities.  Taking in supplements and vitamins that will help in improving our body systems is also necessary to keep a healthy youthful glow inside and out if you wanted to be like them.

Rated as one of the Top Rated Collagen Nutritional Supplements and Best Sellers in Collagen Nutritional Supplements by, YouTheory Collagen is definitely worth checking out.

Influenster VoxBox : Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara Review

disclaimer : I received this beauty product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are mine and was not influenced in anyway.  All pictures are mine unless specified otherse.


I’m definitely loving Influnster.  Ever since i started with them, they just pampering me with awesome products that I can’t help myself being amazed sometimes.  This time, i must admit that my heartbeat got faster and my excitement grew up each day until the day I was actually seeing this box. I so love Yves Saint Laurent and I guess who doesn’t so.

They are not just well known brand in Fashion but their beauty products is a top notch too.  So,  I could say that I’m so pretty lucky to try this new products of them via Influenster.


So pardon my excitement and let’s begin the serious thoughts. This Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara is very new in the market.  It only has 21 reviews on Sephora and 22 on YSL website at this time .  It has a retail value at $32 which can be considered as high end product.

Based on YSL website:

NEW improved formula does not dry out. The best gets even better, the original false lash effect mascara, now with an all new Lash Care formula. Achieve absolute dramatic lashes in a single stroke for eyes that instantly pop. Its secret is the Triple-Intensity Formula: intense volume, intense color and now intense care. The nylon fiber brush coats each lash in deep color and maximum volume from root to tip, while B5 Pro-Vitamin strengthens and protects lashes. Available in 6 signature YSL shades to compliment eye color or to create a customized look. ysl US

Since it’s a high end beauty product, the expectation is generally high.  So does it trully provides high volume and a dramatic false lash effect? Of course since I so love mascara, my answer would always be yes. So, as not to corrupt the result on this review, i also let my niece try it for herself and let me know her thoughts about it.


The shade is very nice and instantly create a dramatic effect, the effect of using a false eyelashes but never feeling that you are using one. It was easy to use and glide perfectly even on your small lashes.

I believed that it is not waterproof  and for someone like me who easily cries could be a problem. I do hope that they can create a waterproof product in the near future but so far it doesn’t seem to be a big problem since it stays in your lashes for quite a reasonable time without the hassle of removing it with the use of make up remover.

It can help your eyes pop and if you love making dramatic eyes, this would be a great way to start.

To learn more about this latest product, make sure to visit Influenster  or better yet check out YSL website. #yslmascaramadness #beautyreview

Having  pearly white teeth, that’s something we all wanted to achieve but as years goes by those once pearly teeth had become yellowish because of different circumstances and our foods intake that stains them.  Having a complete white teeth is very important to keep that smile sweet and wide.  Of course, you don’t want to limit your happiness because your a little bit shy since you don’t want  to expose that not so good teeth.

Before, one of the main reason why I could not show my teeth when pictures are taken is the fact that my front teeth are broken and stains are visible on some part. It’s to late for me to realize the value of taking care of my teeth but then there’s always hope as they say.

There are ways to maintain that pearly white teeth but then it takes a lot of patience on your part from brushing, careful cleaning, regular visits to your dentist and not eating those foods that will leave stains on your teeth.

For some, they even invest a huge amount of money and time to get their teeth whiten again by going to the dentist for  bleaching or professional teeth whitening service , a process that can cost thousand of dollars. Other toothpaste company make promises that when you used their certain product, your teeth will be whiten in a week or so but still it doesn’t work that way.

Barely There – Back Acne Free with Sutla Collagen Fruit Soap

I remember the saying that if you can flaunt it on your front and then do it with your back.   I envy those woman who was born with pretty silky smooth skin and yes, I was just a sad thing that I was not one of them.

Achieving an acne free skin is like a trivial thing for me when I was in my teens.  Honestly, I don’t have a skin regimen at that time and since I’m a working student, i barely have time to cleanse my face at night. I rarely use lotion and I have no idea about moisturizer.   Just a toothbrush and personal hygiene was enough for me but when I turned 30 and with a kid, i suddenly realized how lazy I was before to not take of my skin.  So, i thought it was already too late for me to revive my aging , dry skin.

Back acne has been a problem of many young adult and yes, I was one of those woman who experienced it.  Perhaps not just me but my sisters and brothers.  Sometimes, I even blamed our father since we inherit that blood from him.

Come to think of it, when you have some acne with your face, you can use concealer to hide them for the meantime but with back acne, it’s really hard to put some, don’t you think?

I always wanted to wear backless dresses, just seeing this pretty hollywood actress wearing backless dresses, makes me wish i could also do the same.


But having back acne would definitely prevent you from doing such.  There are some things why we usually get back acne and some of these  are;

1.  They say that when we work or stressed too much, our testosterone pump out that it produce oil that clogged our pores.

2. Perspiration, tight fitting clothes, bad hair products ingredients are just some of the causes too.

3. Stress, if you have them in your life, definitely and a big percentage that you will be having back acne not just back acne but also acne on different parts of your body.

Just like face acne, you can treat your back acne with same products you used on your face.  Recently, i found this Sutla Collagen with Multi Fruit Soap.    Originally, i guess it was intended for face since it helps whiten, moisturize and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

But it also treats pimples and skin disorder and back acne is a kind of skin disorder that we truly hate hence using this product can help you minimize or totally get rid of this acne sort of thing.

sutla soap

What I love about this collagen with multi fruit soap is it’s smell.  It smell fruity that you would be tempted to eat them.  I love how it gives smooth skin.   Although, so far, I wasn’t able to achieve the whitening effect on my skin, it gives smoother skin which is what i have been wanting for years.  If you are thinking of getting rid of acne fast, this is indeed a must try product.

This is your chance to achieve that flawless beauty like those celebrities who flaunt their back during awards ceremonies and red carpet walk.  Even though, you don’t have that chance to do that kind of thing,  just having a Back Acne Free is rewarding.

So, if you decided to give this a try,  Visit Flawless Republic and begin that journey to a flawless new you.

Disclosure:  I received free products for me to try but all opinions are mine.

A Delusional Promise of Beauty

I’m not referring to all beauty products but if you could open your eyes, you will find products that are promising that when you used them for a week or two and even for days, you can see an astonishing result but it’s really far from my perspective.

Although, i am dying to name a few I would rather not to safeguard my quite personal life but I just don’t want to sit around and take it wholeheartedly that many innocent woman are falling for this tricky advertising.

I have tried a few products and yes eventually I am still with big hope that it can give me the results I have ever wanted but it’s not surprising that until now, it’s still the same as before although i can see a difference in some products I have used before but it takes months of religiously applying them. A delusional promise of beauty, that’s what i can tell.

Nonetheless, I really admire their brilliant marketing because this helps people to believe that this actually can work.  But still, I guess it’s different for every skin type and women I guess. Perhaps, my skin is just too stubborn that it doesn’t work for me while to others it does.

I never problem my skin when I’m still on my teens because It was very rare for me to have skin break outs and acne but today, I guess i’m really growing old and my skin is indeed changing making me more prone to it.

Back to broken promises, I felt i was deceived not just by the actual product but the commercial itself.  We all know that the actresses endorsing it are already white and pretty and yet they say that it can make you whiter and prettier but then the simple answer would be, who would make an advertisement with an endorser who is not pretty unless they want their products not getting any single consumer.

But, i wish it could be more realistic.

A dosage of beauty – Gourmet Skin products from Vanilla and Co.

my new addiction

Beauty Tonic

 When I’m younger, i am not a type who cares too much on my appearance and what will other’s view about me. I can go out without a make-up or wouldn’t care much if I have used lotions or perfumes. There are many gourmet skin products in the market but this one is definitely stand out.

But when you grow older, even you like it or not, your skin will tend to  dry and break more.  That’s when I have my children that I came to a realization that I should have taken care of my skin and my health while I was still young.  Don’t misinterpret me, I’m not so vain , i thought it would only be righteous to reward myself since I have been working hard for my family.

I guess it’s not yet too late for me to look good and feel wonderful.  With the right products i can still bring back or even if not as baby like skin, i can achieve a more subtle and soft skin.

One product, i so like is witch hazel because I have heard from a friend that it was good for the skin especially those problem skins, like mine. So, imagine my delight when I got hold of this Beauty Tonic from Vanilla and Co.   Loaded with Witch Hazel, vitamin C, and tea tree oil, this Moisturizing  Witch Hazel Beauty tonic is indeed true to it’s name.  It’s currently my favorite and i always bring it wherever i go, so when the needs arises, i just splash some in my neck and face and voila, i feel so refreshed and my skin is hydrated.

vanilla and co beauty tonic

I love the mild smell of the product and since I have been using a tea tree essential oil for my break outs, this Beauty tonic  is definitely a great beauty dosage for me.  As suggested by Ms. Andrea, i’ve tried to use it before applying make-up which seems to be nice too and i have been using it before bed time as to help minimize my pores and help dry my pimples.  And the best part is, it’s organic and you know, I’m definitely a believer for all organic products thus I always prefers them over synthetic and those with heavy chemicals.

Priced at Php 199.00 or less than $5.00 , it’s very affordable .  So, no wonder their company is growing so fast, even my fave beauty box now carries Vanilla & Co. beauty products.

Make sure to check Vanilla & Co. Facebook page for their latest updates.

Tao Titanium Classic Flat Iron Review

Tao titanium classic

Honestly, I thought I have published this post and it’s been there in my draft form for quite sometime with all the kids getting sick and no house help, it was really a tedious work but It’s not that I’m complaining and not an excuse to look at my best even with the busy and stressful days.

It’s  been a while since the last time I used a hair flat iron because the last one broke my heart when it didn’t last even a year.   There’s always this notion that when you use hair iron everyday, your hair will become damage and frizzy.  I guess, the one that can really damage your hair is coloring it or staying for so long in the heat of the sun.

There are many brands that are coming in the market today all are saying that they have the best product but then when you used them you get the chance to finally see that it’s not even worth it. I am loving this Tao Titanium Classic flat iron, because it’s not just very handy and easy to use.  It’s easy to heat so you don’t need to wait for such a long period of time to use them.

About the product:

With it’s top-of-the-line heating element the TAO Titanium flat iron allows for quick heating, quick cooling and an even distribution of heat across the nano-titanium plates. In addition, they generate 6 times more ions then metal irons which helps seal the cuticles of hair to prevent split ends, reduce frizz and retain hair’s natural moisture, oil and color!


  • Nano-titanium & silver technology
  • Perfect for curls, flips & waves
  • Max temperature 450F
  • Digital temperature display
  • Adjustable heat Settings
  • Ultra-quick heat-up & recovery

  • Ion generator for smooth hair
  • 1 Year Limited Warranty from Manufacturer

It has an ion generator that can help your hair  achieve a smooth finish.  Ever since I decided to take a new hair color, my hair becomes dull and frizzy but  I’m so glad that this can help me with my recent hair problem.



Here’s a before and after.  Seeing my hair reminds me that I need to get a new hair color since the black ones are coming out again.  Aside from easy to use, i like that it can create different style from curl to wavy and the usual straight one.  If you are a regular reader, you will see me sporting my wavy hair before.

The Tao Titanium classic flat iron is a good companion for everyday use or when you are attending a  special occasion since you don’t need a stylist to create a beautiful hairdo for you.  That saves time, energy and lots of money too.

You can get Tao Titanium at Beauty Stop Online,  an online shop that offers great deals of beauty and fashionable products for all lovely girls out there.

Be Beautiful with Avon’s newest make up collection

I always believe that make up helps every woman enhance the God’s given beauty to them.  As for me and for many others, it also help hide those flaws and even the blemishes that I so hate.

Avon has been a household name of many Filipino women, i remember the first time I acquired my first Avon lipstick and ever since, I’m a great believer of their products not just their make up but also their intimate apparel.

I’m not an authority it terms of make up application nor I had a formal make up lessons but since I so love make up , i have learned through tutorials and from experienced as well.

This will be my first make up tutorial and i do hope that I can help you even in a very simple way and of course i’m in the  process of learning and will definitely wanted to upgrade my knowledge on this field.

Avon’s newest make up collection offers a true, vivid color that can really make you look pretty and fabulous.

With this look, i have used the one I have received from Glamour Box ( I was really ecstatic when I opened Glamour Box special Avon Edition Box) check out my experience on it on another post.

To begin with;  I used Avon’s Newest Skin Goodness Moisturizing BB Cream with SPF 20 and blend them in my face.

Next, i work on my eyes.  I am not really great on creating a perfect brow but I know in time, i will too ( with the right knowledge and learning, as they say, practice makes perfect)

I love this Avon’s Perfect Eyebrow pencil since it can use to apply eyeshadow on lid and eye liner.


This True colour eyeshadow quad in Purple Pop that comes in the box was really pretty.  I love pink and purples and this one is a perfect combination for day and night event.


Although, I regularly use red or pink on my blush on, this Ideal Luminous Blush in Peach is simply natural.  Honestly, i could not notice a difference at first (perhaps it’s my skin tone) but when I added some layer, I see that it was really nice and I guess, i would be using this for a while.

avon's collection

For the lips,  I have read about a rule that when your eye color is darker , use a light layer of lip color on your lips.  So, this Ultra color lipstick in Hibiscus is just right.  (you can also read my other post on how to achieve a more pouting lips)

Myra E – Keeping you beautiful inside and out

With many products that are coming in the market claiming that they can give you better result,  it’s really hard to make a choice but when you find something that works for you, then I should say that you are very lucky.

As much as I deny it, i’m getting older and sometimes my body says so and for a working mom with two kids, i need to keep myself healthy at all times.  That’s the main reason, why i need products that will keep my body and skin healthy and beautiful just like when I was younger.

It’s been months that I have been using Myra E hand and body lotion and vitamin E capsule and believe it or not, I am satisfied with it’s result. Even hubby was already using the lotion and as I have always mentioned, his rather hard to be satisfy with just anything but with months of continue using Myra E, it only means that he has just find his match.

Myra E capsule has antioxidant properties that help repairs your damaged cells and since vitamin E is already proven to give radiant skin, does continued usage will give you result  of a  beautiful healthy skin that we all wished and yearn for.

Although, i could not guarantee you that it can make your whiter since it doesn’t happened to me but what i can assure is that it can make you more fairer and the best thing is to keep your body healthy which I think matters most.

In terms of Myra E lotion,  i used it before going to bed since it has no spf but if your looking for one, they also have Myra E Daily Sun Protect facial moisturizer but i haven’t tried them yet since i am  already using another brand.

Myra E is a product from Unilab  who has been there to keep families protected and healthy through their lifetime.

Beauty Finds : Merlot Skin Care Review and Giveaway

“Merlot Skincare was founded by Wayne Beckley after he became interested in research showing that the French have lower rates of heart disease due to the fact that they consume at least one glass of red wine per day. Wayne Beckley decided to do some detailed research into the benefit of grape seed polyphenols and this research gave him the inspiration for the Merlot Skin range. All of the skin care products in the range contain grape seed polyphenols and there are a number of anti-aging products within the Merlot Skincare range.”

Natural grape seeds extract has been known for its healing power.  It was associated to have substances that protect the cells from damage and help bring back the smoothness and beauty of the skin.  Drinking a green seeds extract is generally safe based from medical studies so applying them by means of skin care product is not an exemption.

That’s what Merlot skin care can boast, there products are free of fragrance and great for sensitive skin.  Based from the site , “the procyanadolic oligimers (PCO) contained in grape seed polyphenols have been found to be 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and 25 times more powerful than Vitamin C”  which means it’s more powerful than a regular skin care products that i have used before.

Imagine my delight when i was granted  to review their products.  I choose the Merlot Microdermabrasion Body Scrub since I love to have a body scrub once in a while , so I thought it would be a nice opportunity to scrub at home.  The purple color and the light smell can definitely doze you to sleep and the smoothness it can leave your skin is something i truly needed.

On the other hand, the Merlot Divine Perfume is definitely true to its name,  divine.  It doesn’t have a fruity smell instead it’s a bit musk , might be the scent of the grapes and i feel like i’m on a fields of grapes enjoying the beautiful scenery and fragrance of the fruits.

I also love the idea of its bottle, it’s a real catch since after i finished them, i can still use the bottle as a flower vase because of it’s slim and dainty figure, that’s where recycle products came to view.

And i so love the thought that they also included a night moisturizer since the last night cream I have used doesn’t do me justice and since I have Merlot skin care , i would definitely check its further results after several usage.


So, tell me your thoughts?   Merlot products are also available at Walgreens stores and through, as well as a number of winery  and dermatologist’s gift shops. Check out Merlot Skin care today and learn about how they can give you beautiful skin.  Sign up with their newsletter to learn the latest deals and updates.  Follow them on Facebook and don’t forget to join the giveaway below to get a chance to try this wonderful skin care collection.
