What I'm loving now
: Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Nail Color
Why I'm loving it: I have mastered the art of doing my own pedicure (saves you cash, and you can do it in the comforts of your own bedroom—just be careful not spill polish on your bed sheet. It has happened, believe me.) but I still need practice when it comes to my manicure. Enter this polish with a special brush (never used anything quite like it, actually) that lets you coat your nail in one swipe (twice for my thumbnail, though). It also dries in 60 seconds flat (or even less for my tiny nails) so you won't have to worry about ruining your manicure even before you leave your room. I can't wait to put the Sonic Bloom shade on my tips this weekend! They've got 15 shades you can choose from so don't worry about being pressured to put pink on your nails.
You can also try: Their different nail polish removers according to your nails' needs. We got to try the moisturizing one and I loved that it didn't dry out my nails.


Sally Hansen products are available at Watsons, Landmark , Rustan's , Robinsons Department Store, PCX, and Metro Gaisano. Insta-Dri Nail Color is  P365 a bottle.

: Beauty & Butter's Body Lotion
Why I'm loving it
: It smells like a dream! I'm a sucker for anything Vanilla-scented and this lotion almost smells exactly like my favorite Vanilla body spray! I tried it on and was surprised to discover hours later (when I was under the sun) that it had shimmer! I joked that I was like a Cullen sparkling in the sunlight. This is perfect for when you're wearing a dress or a skirt that shows some leg. It'll give off a healthy sheen on your legs.
You can also try:
Spic and Span, a mild toner that you can use after washing your face. I like that my skin doesn't get that stinging sensation after I use this.

What I'm loving now
: Beyond Bath Organics Shampoo
Why I'm loving it
: I usually just shampoo my hair every other day as I'm prone to massive hair fall (I get scared that I'll plug my bathroom drain with so much hair and my bathroom will be filled with water, haha!). But after using this, it seems like I won't have to worry so much. I also like the fruity grapefruit scent—it makes your hair smell good but isn't that strong to cause other people to wrinkle their nose at you when you pass by. It's also paraben-free, which means it's gentle on your tresses.
You can also try: Nature Glow Lightening Soap-Free Body Wash. I like the citrus-y scent and the non-greasy feel after you've rinsed it off. Makes me feel squeaky clean!

Beyond Bath Organics products are available at all Watsons Personal Care Stores and SM Department Stores nationwide.
