Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner Review

Hello guys. Before the release of the TVC, this tube of conditioner created a noise in the internet and in the social media sites as Cosmo Beauty Crush. Pantene, released their ltest hair care product called Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner that promise to repair your damaged hair that you gained for 3 months in just 3 minutes. Sampleroom.PH offered a free samples which, unfortunately, weren't able to get one but thank God, everydayme.com.ph offered free samples, too which I got one luckily together with a pouch and some discount vouchers for selected P&G products. Even Lazada and Shopwise joined to the craze by selling it in an introductory price of 79php from the regular price of 159php.
I tried it for a week and I love the scent. I'm not sure but its like a light vanilla one. I personally recommend the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner. Even There ( IG - @thehandmadechic ) and Celine ( IG - @chubbychooo ) can attest to the effectivity of this #CosmoBeautyCrush. Since I bleached and dye my hair that is why I need to take care of it that is why I tried it and this conditioner is true to its promise. This is perfect for summer since it's lightweight so it doesn't give you a heave and sticky feel after a long day. Even if I you a hair wax, still it doesn't feel like you put a lot of stuffs in your hair.

Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Pack Review

Hello...!!!

Its been a long time since the last time that I updated my blog. I'm so sorry for that. I got lots of skin care products that I've tried for the pass months and I want to share my personal experience to help you decide. Let's start by reviewing Himalaya Herbals Facial Pack that I got from Sampleroom ( sampleroom.PH ) for free together with other Himalaya Herbals face care line.

This facial mask claims to get rid of skin problem such as pimples and oily skin. Its like a mud pack because of the color. I used it after washing my face using the Himalaya Herbals Facial Wash. I applied it after I towel-dried my skin and leave it for 15 minutes. After that, I rinse it with water. After few days of using it, I noticed that my skin becomes less oily and some of my little pimples starts to dry out.

Pro : it really controls the oil production and tightens my pores.

Cons : its a bit grainy when you apply it. It feels like you're using a scrub.

Worth To Repurchase?

Yes I'll repurchase it in the future if I need a help to get rid of my pimples.

Dannic Live At Hyve Superclub

I'm back...!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so sorry for not updating my blog coz I'm sooooooooooo busy plus I had a problem with my computer. But I don't want to abandon this blog since its my way of expressing myself. If you want, you may follow my social media accounts for some updates:

facebook.com/raynfromtheskyPH
instagram.com/raynfromthesky

Anyway, let's start telling you want happened on the last months of 2014. There's suppose to be an EDM festival called Exception Music Festival in December last year where some of the famous international DJs including my favorite Showtek and Dash Berlin but, unfortunately, it was cancelled. But one of the DJs included to that lineup is still going to perform but he's gonna perform to one of the hippest superclub in the metro which is Hyve and that was Dannic. I watched one of his livesets in Tomorrowland and I so love it esp his remix of Habits by Tove Lo.

I got even more excited when I found out that Hype will have a ticket giveaway promo on Instagram to meet and greet Dannic before he perform. Just so you know that I'm so lucky on joining contest in social media. So I posted my well-thought-out entry on my Instagram account. Well, I didn't won the meen-and-greet price but as a courtesy of joining to their contest, they gave us 2 complimentary pass for us to watch his liveset at Hyve. For me, I still won because all I want is to dance and jump to the live tracks of Dannic as well as with the coolest people. I've seen some quick videos on Instragram of what's happening inside of hippiest boutique clubs in Bonifacio Global City and it looks like its fun to be there.

Remiel and I arrived at their lobby and we were suprised by the amazing ceiling. The club was open at 11pm and they start the party the chill tracks from DJ Katsy Lee with DJ Rico Robles as an emcee. After two hours, the main show just started when Dannic slowly standing from the the desk. On the first half, the security were standing at the front to keep the party-goers from going closely to Dannic but later on, the security was leniently allow us to come closely to the deck but they still didn't leave. It was awkward seeing them in a frown face while everyone were so happy partying, hahaha. He played some of his original tracks such as Wait For You and Zenith as well as his remixes of latest hits such as Break Free by Ariana Grande and the Mashup Remix of I Love It by Icona Pop and C.U.B.A by Calvin Harris. I'm a type of raver who will try to come closer in front from the stage. I successfully get in front of Dannic as in just a meter away from him.

Hyve Superclub is a perfect venue for you say the-best-night-ever or the best-party-of-my-life. Too bad I weren't able to experience the previous events where Dvbbs and Dada Life are their headliners. Thank God, I got to experience the party at Hyve before leaving the year 2014. I'm looking forward for their upcoming events in the future.

Here are some of my fond moments of Dannic's liveset at Hyve Superclub.

DIY Two Toned Shirt

I got the inspiration while browsing some DIY inspiration from Google. I spotted one article on how to achieve a two toned jacket by cutting a sleeve from an old gym jacket and stitch it to a sleeveless denim jacket. Just scroll down to see the shots on how I did it.



What You Need:

1. Two Used Tops
2. Scissors
3. Needle and Thread



1. Grab any used top - whether a short or long sleeve its up to you. I preferred to choose a top with a plain prints but the one with a graphics on front like this is good and the other top is printed. I got this black long sleeved top from the thrift shop in Cubao for 50pesos.

2. Cut the Sleeves -  actually this one came from one of the shirt that I have it altered from long sleeved into a short sleeved one. Thank God my favorite tailor decided to keep this sleeved together with the altered one in my bag. No need to murder any top. hahaha. For the black top, I also cut the sleeve but I leave 1/4 inch portion of it for the stitching. That's the techniqe. hahaha.

3.  Put Those Pins - After cutting the sleeves, secure it with a safety pins so it won't move while you are stitching it. 



4. Do The Running Stitch in Back and Forth Motion - Make sure that the stitch is in equal size. After the first round, do it again in backward mode to achieve the look like it was stitch using a sewing machine.  TIP: try to achieve the stitch as fine as you can although it going to be a tedious work but at least by doing that, the stitch will look like it was done using a sweing machine. I learned this from my home economics project where we have to make our own pajama manually by doing a hand stitch.





5. Do The Finishing Touch - Iron the stitch part. I decided to cut the bottom part of the shirt and leave it undone since that that is the current trend.
There you have it. You can check my lookbook for this garment by clicking this link:

BB and CC Creams Review ( Pond's Flawless White, Avon Skin Goodness CC Cream, Myra VitaGlow BB Cream )

I'm back...!!!!!.Sorry for not updating my page because I've been so busy for the past months. Anyway, let me feature this three BB and CC creams. I'll make it short, simple and direct to the point since I'm currently in a state where I run out of words to use when writing. hahaha.


Pond's Flawless White BB+ Cream.
I already featured the Pond's Age Miracle BB Cream here and its one of the products that I would personally recommend because of the results and the staying power of it without retouching. When I found out that Pond's released the bb cream version of Flawless White in a small tube for 150pesos, I never had a second thought of trying it. This one has the same level of longevity compare to the Pond's Age Miracle BB Cream, only problem here is the shade because its a little too white for my complexion. I guess the remedy there is to put some powder 1 shade darker. In terms of the whitening effect, well I don't feel the effect on it but probably it will manifest the result if you use it for a month or two. Some of my friends used this I noticed the difference. It lightens their complexion without looking too odd. I guess the shade of this didnt match to my skin tone. They already released the this same bottle in a darker shade so probably I'll try that soon.

Avon Skin Goodness CC Cream
CC Creams that was launched by other brands was kind of expensive so when I found out that Avon launched their own version of CC cream in an affordable price of 299pesos ( it was on sale that time) , I never hesitated to try this. Also one of my friends got this one so I tried it  first before ordering it. I noticed that it lightens my skin tone without looking awful , hahaha. I love it honestly. Only concern for this tube is  the staying power. It only last for 4 hours then later then I need to put some loose powder. I got an oily skin type. Well, I would still buy another one of these because I'm satisfied with the results.


Myra VitaGlow BB Cream
I guess this is the most affordable bb cream in the country from the trusted company, Myra. I'm surprised to found out that this one only cost 99pesos. I selected Ivory which is their lighter shades but they also have a darker shade but the saleslady suggested to choose the lighter one since I got an acidic skin type where the bb cream will become darker after few hours. The girls will definitely like this because it has a shimmery effect but guys can still wear this because the shimmery effect is not too apparent. My only concern here is  it gets easily washed out when you sweat. Other bb creams was actually hard to remove by using water. Well, you get what you paid for. But the shimmery effect still in your face so just put some powder.

There you have it. Hope this article will help you decide on buying bb and cc creams. I'll still feature other bb and creams since I believe that these kind cream is a good choice instead of using powder because it contains skin care benefits that you need all packed into one so gone are the days of putting lots of stuffs in your face.

Latchin' On






My first post wearing latest addition to my shoe shelves.Its a leather boots in brown with fox fur details.I got it from the thrift shop 650 pesos in Fashion Delite which is in front or Eurotel and same building with the main branch of National Bookstor.Fashion Delite is a must-visit shop for buying thrifted shoes because they have wide range to choose from in an affordable price. I don't usually buy shoes from the thrift shop because first, can't find a pair that is perfect to my size and second, most of the shoes there are worn out and I don't like that because I believe that the shoes will make or break the overall outfit.I'll be posting  more looks wearing this.You can check out some of them through www.instagram.com/raynfromthesky
