Cre8skin Salmon Oil Cream Review

I've been hearing a lot of buzz about the Cre8skin Salmon Oil Cream. 

At first, I thought it was really unusual to incorporate salmon oil into skincare, but hey, since a lot of us are already drinking fish oil capsules because of the benefits to our body, I said to myself, maybe I should give this a try?

Read on for my full experience...

Ever Bilena Naturals Hand Cream in Sweet Rose and Femme Floral

Ever Bilena Hand Cream Sweet Rose Femme Floral Review

Hand creams are something I usually pack whenever I travel to colder countries. This is sort of my little hack way back in college. Like why bother bringing that large tub of lotion when you've got a travel friendly moisturizing product that fits inside your bag?

Welcome to Makeup in Manila: A beauty, lifestyle, and interiors blog written by Maj Valencia-Rodriguez.

But as for us, (well, it's more of a "me" really) I really wanted to have a garden-breakfast-lounging-in-my-pajamas-kind-of-engagement-shoot. It's just something at the back of my mind that I really wanted to do. Of course, with our laid back and passive style, nothing could go wrong!
