Banana Boat Fun in the Sun at Pico De Loro

Who would have thought that a sunblock could be so dry you would think you're wearing nothing?  



It's the Summer season once again and we all know that the sun's scorching heat could do more harm than good on our skin.


Good thing there are several new variants of Banana Boat products that are totally mess free because they're available in dry lotion spray on packaging!  


Team 5


Team 5 & 6 after the AmazingSkin Race



Yes, darlings, we tested the new spray variants of Banana Boat Dry lotion under seven tough conditions through an Amazing Race type of adventure at Pico de loro in Batangas last April 26, 2018.


The AmazingSkin Race started off by dividing us into groups. We wanted the 7 of us to be in one group but the emcee divided us into two. But we still regroup every time we can. Ha ha ha



You could imagine our happiness when team 6 got the bronze medal with cash. My parents taught me to be happy for others when they succeed. It is the true measure of being a good person.


Armed with Banana Boat spray on dry lotion ( plus face lotion ) from head to toe we headed to Hamilo Coast at Pico De Loro in Nasugbu, Batangas. 

Ocean Water


Our group started off by swimming towards the guide then retrieved the boat shape floater from him and we brought it back to the shore.

Rating- 5 stars   πŸŒŸ  πŸŒŸ  πŸŒŸ πŸŒŸ πŸŒŸ     

The lotion stays despite my body's contact with the ocean water. Yey!

Sweat





After which, we ran to our next task, that of a paper attached to our skin for it to change color, which we easily surpassed. ( Ano ba beh! Tagaktak na pawis namin kaya yakang yaka na mag palit ng kulay ng papel kakatakbo namin paroo't pairot ineng. Isang lagay sa noo at siya ay nagbago agad ng kulay. Pak na pak! Ha ha ha! )

Rating- 5 stars 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟


In fairness, grabe pawis namin pero hindi siya humulas!

Sun


The next one probed to be a challenge because the Sun suddenly disappeared and we had to wait for the sun to shine again in all its glory so we can put a hole on the paper using a magnifying glass.

Rating- 5 stars 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

We were all baked under the heat of the sun and yet hindi ako umitim!

Pool Water




After which, we picked up sea shells at the plastic swimming pool to form the words that stands for the seven conditions.


Rating- 5 stars 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Labas masok kami sa inflatable pool pero keber kahit super init whiz natanggal ang aming sunblock!

Wind


Then we played Frisbee which is very easy because Gab has taught us the style on how to catch it properly. It pays to know the game beforehand. Thanks, Gab!

Rating- 5 stars 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Sand



This calls for group cooperation. Each one of us used a plastic cup and filled it up with sand and form the number 7 and count up to 30 seconds to pass the challenge.

Rating- 5 stars 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Kesehodang gumugulong na kami sa sand pak na pak pa rin ang aming sunblock.

100 degree heat

Directional shadow is very easy, we just pointed the shadow to the Banana Boat Dry Lotion Standee



Running back and forth and swimming under the heat of the noontime sun is quite an amazing skin challenge.




Banana Boast Dry Lotion is love!  I super love the classic spray on spf 50 dry lotion because it has no nasty smell very compatible to people with allergic reactions to smelly lotion.  And it really protected my skin from the harsh sun. And because it comes in a spray tin can, applying it on your skin is very easy. Plus it has a matte finish. So it doesn't weigh you down! 


It is available in SPF 30/50+



Formulated to absorbs excess moisture, and dry with a soft matte finish – so nice that you’ll want to reapply! Designed for ideal skin feel, Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen keeps you protected from the sun while feeling dry and fresh so you can enjoy your day – no matter where you are!



FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Provides safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection
  • Dries with a soft matte finish
  • Lightweight, non-greasy formula absorbs excess moisture while allowing skin to breathe
  • Water-resistant formula (up to 80 minutes)

  • Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation to protect against the sun’s harmful rays
BANANA BOAT® SPORT PERFORMANCE® FACES LOTION SUNSCREEN


Realization- It's true! Banana Boat Dry Lotion stays on in seven conditions –  ocean water, sun, pool water, wind, sweat, sand and even 100 degree heat.


I love Banana Boat's face lotion! It provides the SPF 30 protection I need and absorbs quickly so it won’t run into my eyes – or slow me down.


Nice to see you again my friend from my favorite Magazine!
Good news also to all mommies out there! Banana boat has spray on dry lotion for kids too!

Protect your skin and your family's skin as well by always wearing sun screen everyday even indoors.


I am grateful to the PR group who invited us to this wonderful experience with Banana Boat.  We were strangers at the beginning of the journey but we formed a new friendship when the event ended. Thank you Banana Boat!


Enjoy your summer with #BananaBoatPH !

Love,

Fashionable Wear at ATC

Perplexed on what to wear this Summer?

Rejoice and worry no more!

Fashion authorities Kat Cruz-Villanueva and Heart Evangelista can help!


Fashionistas all over the world have this elaborate dream of stepping into their own walk in closet and meeting with their sartorial confidante/fashion bestie to say “yay” or “nay” to a hundred and one gorgeous outfits until they find the perfect #OOTD to launch a thousand hearts and gushy comments on Instagram. 


That’s basically the life of stylist to the stars Kat Cruz-Villanueva and fashion icon Heart Evangelista-Escudero. And, soon, yours, too!  This summer, put an end to your endless wardrobe envy and literally shop in a closet beautifully curated by these fashion girls and style authorities. 



Starting April 12 to 15, Alabang Town Center’s (ATC) activity center takes a fashion turn and gets transformed into fashion wonderland teeming with apparel, shoes, and accessories from all the best brands like: DKNY, Anne Klein, Rustan’s Ladies Apparel, Mango, He By Mango, Marks & Spencer, Naturalizer, Hush Puppies, Sebago, Florsheim, Urbanize, Vionic, World Balance, Aojo, Mujosh, Sunglass Haven, Vision Express, Apple & Eve, Bench, Royal Gem, Metro, Florsheim, Collezione C2, Plains & Prints, Folded & Hung, Kamiseta, Maldita, Great Kids, Jockey, and Vise Versa.

“As a celebrity stylist, I believe my job is to work with my client’s own style, not to create clones of myself. I am here to help polish and make their style work according to their personality, lifestyle, and image,” Kat says.

This is why Kat worked meticulously to curate this year’s ATC Stylist Closet featuring the trends – Denim, Brights, Utilitarian, Checkered and Prints. You can find pieces that not only complement your personality but will take your personal style a notch higher.

What to wear on the beach and in the city to still look trΓ¨s chic in the sweltering heat? “A failsafe tip to look chic on the beach is to use “city” pieces as cover ups, like a light blazer or a crisp white shirt. For summer in the city, a fancy skirt topped with a light-weight t-shirt for casual days or a soft shirt for days when you need to be more dressed up.

Kat’s absolute fave trend from this collection is mixed prints. Pair a bright floral top with striped loose pants; put on a fancy pair of sparkly embellished wedge sandals; wear your cool micro sunglasses; finish the look with chandelier earrings; and you’re ready for the summer!

“There are a myriad ways to keep shopping and fashion more exciting and collaborative for our shoppers and partnering with Kat and Heart for this collection is definitely one of them. These girls know fashion,” says Christine Enriquez-Yabao, Marketing Manager of Alabang Town Center.

If there’s one fashion “rule” this veteran stylist to the stars could give to everyone, it’s to “always create visual proportion and balance the dressing up.” This top fashion rule has given birth to countless scene-stealing looks that fit the multifaceted and effortless stylish actress, artist, designer, and entrepreneur, Heart Evangelista, like a supple lambskin glove. (Case in point: Paris Fashion Week.)

“Heart’s personal style is classic peppered with eclectic. Dressing her up for everything from the SONA red carpet to Paris Fashion Week, down to her fairy-tale wedding is fun and nerve-racking at the same time,” Kat says.

How is Heart’s style in contrast with Kat’s own? “I’d say we’re simultaneously on the same and opposite side of the spectrum in terms of style and fashion. And that’s what makes our relationship really awesome! It’s never boring!” Kat enthuses. 



ATC marketing Manager Tintin Enriquez-Yabao, Kat  Cruz-Villanueva and Fashionista's favorite Actress Heart Evangelista-Escudero

So if you can’t decide whether to wear that bright floral dress with neon pink stilettos or not, you already know what Kat’s and Heart’s answers will be, a big “yes!”

Renascence of a 1000-Year-Old Tradition

Renascence of a 1000-Year-Old Tradition



For many generations, the people of Buscalan, Kalinga held onto their prized art of traditional tattooing or pagbabatok. Their tattoos were a symbol of pride earned by betrothed women and men for their valor and strength, their skins a living canvas embellished with the cultural heritage of their tribe. 

Considered as a dying art in the turn of the century, the pagbabatok now rests on the shoulders of Whang-Od Oggay, the last mambabatok of Kalinga and the Philippines’ oldest tattoo artist, and her successors, Grace Palicas and Ilyang Wigan. 

The unsung heroes of our generation, the mambabatoks will join the best craftsmen in the country in the 66th edition of Manila FAME to show the world the Philippine culture and its impact for generations to come.

Now, the time has come for you and me to add Pili to our daily beauty routine!
NATURAL BEAUTY and wellness-focused brand Pili has come up with a diverse range of products that champions the under-appreciated potential of the local pili tree.

By harnessing pili oil from the pulp of the pili fruit and the even more potent elemi oil from the resin, Pili produces oils, soaps, lotions, and other potions that maximize moisturizing and anti-aging properties. What’s more, everything is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, paraben-free, and natural.

Look positively glowing with Pili’s antioxidant-rich lotion. Fitted with pili oil that will help prevent premature aging and elemi oil that will tighten and smoothen skin, the fragrant hand and body lotion will keep you effortlessly effervescent. Or, make your skin luxuriously soft and dewy with their signature body oil that’s packed with pili’s naturally occurring vitamin E and antioxidants.

The bath soap is a quick option for the gal on the go. Not only does it live up to the same moisturizing promises (with the added benefits of coconut oil), it also cleanses and rejuvenates the skin. Thanks to its antimicrobial components, it continues to prevent the build up of body odor long after you’ve stepped out of the shower.

Finish off your beauty regimen with a spritz of the hair serum. With the same moisturizing capabilities, it keeps your scalp from drying and easily tames stubborn frizz. This bottle works overtime, perfect as a leave-on conditioner, hair mask, or even an overnight hair treatment.

But as any beauty guru will tell you, beauty comes from within. Pili has a collection of essential oils that invigorates, calms, relieves, and more. The Rise and Shine, a mix of citrus and elemi oils, focuses and bolsters energy. The Stress Away relaxes tired and tense muscles thanks to its soothing blend of eucalyptus, ginger, cypress, juniper berry, wintergreen, menthol, and camphor oils.

A good night’s rest can go a long way in your grooming ritual. The Sweet Dreams essential oil has a naturally soothing scent that will swiftly put you at ease before you sleep.

There’s also the Breathe Easy whose eucalyptus and elemi oil blend eases your nasal passages and the Bug Me Not, which repels insects with its medley of citronella, lemongrass, and neem. The latter two also come in handy natural balms and are perfect for children

Pili, the little tree that you probably only knew as a candied delicacy, has everything you need to establish a solid and sustainable beauty routine. Maybe it’s time to try it.
