Let’s face it – we Filipinos have a natural affinity for anyone that’s fair and white. And that’s why so many whitening products have come out in the market over the past years. But while there is a growing number of people buying whitening products, more and more are becoming aware that there’s a difference between artificial white – and natural white.

That’s why Splash Corporation, the all-Filipino personal care company and manufacturer of the country’s number-one skin whitening product, SkinWhite, now introduces an exciting new product line – the SkinWhite Papaya Milk line – the first to combine papaya and milk ingredients for the natural way to soft, white skin!

“The SkinWhite Papaya Milk line is expected to be a hit not only among users of the SkinWhite brand, but also among users of herbal whitening products. Now, our consumers can benefit from the unique combination of natural beauty ingredients, that of papaya and milk, and, at the same time, enjoy our complete line – from soap to lotion.” says Anna Gimenez, Marketing Manager for the Whitening Category of Splash Corporation.

Currently the leading product in its category, SkinWhite intends to maintain its leadership by constantly creating and introducing exciting new products.

The first product line ever to combine papaya and milk ingredients, Splash Corporation’s SkinWhite Papaya Milk line promises to deliver an amazing and effective combo of whitening and moisturizing of the skin. With its 100% natural whitening papain enzymes combined with milk extracts, those who wish to have white, soft skin can expect results in as little as one week! The products also contain SPF-10 to prevent skin darkening and are further infused with essential Vitamins B, C, and E to help nourish skin. Both SkinWhite Papaya Milk lotion and soap also come in a sweet, long-lasting scent, making them perfect for everyday use.
Best of all, new SkinWhite Papaya Milk line is now available in all Robinson’s Supermarkets.

And this November, the SkinWhite Papaya Milk line will be available in all leading supermarkets and drugstores nationwide.

So don’t just be white. Be naturally white – with SkinWhite Papaya Milk.

Relaxing Foot Soak

After a stressful, tiring, long day a foot soak can be just the thing to help you unwind and relax. A foot soak or foot bath is a wonderful way to repay our feet. When our feet are tired then our whole body feels tired. When our feet feels good, our whole body feels good.

Here's an easy, simple and cheap recipe for a relaxing foot soak.
  • Prepare bowl of warm water
  • Add the juice of two calamansi
  • Sit comfortably in your favorite chair.
  • Soak your feet in the warm water with calamansi juice.
  • Relax depending on how long you want.
  • Rinse off.

In addition to a relaxing and calming feeling, your feet will be softer.

Try it!

A Fun Run, A Toner and A Facial Moisturizer

Our family have decided to join another fun run. This will be the second time that all four of us will join – me, my hubby and our two teenagers. The first time we ran was the 2M run of Market! Market! Power Mile Run Year 2 last May 17, 2009.

On March 7, 2010, we will join the 5KM run of Unilab Run United For Wellness at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. It is a wellness event for the family with running as the core activity. There’s a 500m dash for kids, 3km, 5km, 10km and 21 km. It is for the benefit of the Children’s Hour and KIDS Foundation.

We have already registered so we’re all set to go. Upon registration, you will receive a race kit with singlet, timing chip, bib no, runner’s guide and Unilab freebies. We got the following Unilab freebies: a Solmux chewable tablet, a Conzace Multivitamins + Mineral softget capsule, a ColdEase Herbal food supplement softgel capsule, a 250ml Celeteque Oil Control Toner and 50ml Myra E Daily Sun Protect Facial Moisturizer.

I think all these are new products from Unilab. We have not used any of these products yet. I am particularly intrigued by the Celeteque Oil Control Toner and Myra E Daily Sun Protect Facial Moisturizer. I checked the Unilab website and these products are not yet listed there.
