GPB11: Buffala Milk Soap from Kalamilksoap Enterprise

NOTE:  The Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (GPB11) series isa number of posts regarding merchants and sellers; and their unique and unusual creations, of which I had the utmost pleasure of discovering at Yabang Pinoy's Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (read a short introduction of my bazaar experience here.)  J

My very first fashion magazine was a U.S. edition, commemorable 50th Anniververy issue of Seventeen.  A hand-me-down from a US-based tita (aunt) who was an avid subscriber then.  I was only 10 years old that time and I remember loving the pictures and the articles so much that I later on became a fan of it myself.

One of the articles in that particular issue was about how to keep skin healthy and glowing by use of natural ingredients.  And one of the tips mentioned was to add milk in your bath. 

That particular tip stayed on with me for years and you bet a portion of my very first paycheck went to a purchase of Johnson & Johnson milk bath wash.  Cheap I know, but I considered it a luxury back then.  J

I guess I've never really gotten used to liquid soap for I did outgrow my J&J brand, opting instead for the hard feel of its more solid counterpart.  But rarely could I find solid soaps that left me with that smooth, gentle feel as a milk bath wash ever did.

That is until now...

Buffala milk soap from Kalamilksoap Enterprises

One of my purchases from the Global Pinoy Bazaar included this organic soap form Kalamilksoap Enterprises.  Known as Buffala milk soap (Php100), this product is actually made from carabao's (water buffalo) milk infused with fruit extracts, oatmeal and essential oils.

Lavender+oats buffala milk soap

I love how natural it smells and the feel of it on my skin.  So smooth and silky.  So luxurious!

There is one thing I'm concerned about, though.  It dissolves rather quickly if left on a wet soap dish, although easily remedied with a cover.  (NOTE: Received word from Kalamilksoap Enterprises that this is due to the fact that they do not use chemical hardeners on their products.  It's a good thing, then.)  J

The line also comes in chamomile, tea oil, citronella oil, peppermint, eucalyptus and many others.  A great gift for your family and friends who love organic bath soaps.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
