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.

The Myra E Daily Sun Protect Facial Moisturizer comes in a white box with orange accents. Here is the information in the box:

I haven’t decided yet on whether I will try and use these products. I will have to check the reviews for these products. I might try to use it first in my other body parts like the arms just to have a feel of it.

Have any of you tried these products already?
