Haru’s Quarantine Skin Care

Haru's ECQ Skin Care

It’s day 63 of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in my country due to COVID-9. While the whole world waits for the vaccine, a grand majority of us is in our homes, trying our best not to overwhelm our health care system more. With this comes with work arrangements for us to be working from home. Being work from home has its perks:

  • Savings in time from my daily drive. Nope, didn’t miss the traffic – not even one bit. Imagine, 1.5-2hrs of rush hour traffic, one-way for 9-12 km! It’s insane.
  • I get to sleep longer since I don’t need to wake up so early – like 4:30AM early for work. My daily drive and prep adds to my sleep time which is awesome.
  • Savings from gas. I think I saved around $23.53 per week, or that’s been around $211.76 in total
  • I get to eat meals with my family. In fact, I also get to eat meals on-time regularly and healthy snacks.
  • I don’t have to think what to wear daily – except when I have video conferences.
  • With gaining time, I managed to clear out my closet, drawers, and room.
  • Also, I get to consistently do my skin care routine. I get to regularly do facial masks now!

Speaking of skin care, my holy grail quarantine skin care are:

Haru’s Thoughts: Lab’i Experience

I was out today to do some adulting errands (car maintenance), so I was in Eastwood killing my time. I spent it as reading, eating (no dinner from last night, no breakfast and it was lunch), roaming around the mall and movies.

Will I was on my way to watch Alita, I came across this store:

Lab’i Lipstick Design Studio

Out of sheer curiosity, I came in and I was mind-blown! I met one of the owners herself!

Globe Broadband Internet: Customer Service Review

Normally, I give praises to good food, good restaurant, good make-up, good skin care and good customer service.

This time around, what I received was the worst-of-the-worst customer service I ever experienced so far. I pass the award to: Globe . I hyperlinked it so you can see what I’m talking about. I know it’s too early to crown that, it’s just March!

Exactly how long were we subscribed to Globe Broadband Internet? Probably around 3 years.

North Haven Spa: Ginger Body Scrub Review

 

Ginger in my food. Ginger in my cup. Now, ginger as a scrub? Strange?

Some like it hot, some like cold. Some like it in a pot, 5 days old.  I’m not sure if you’re familiar with that nursery rhyme. I think it had something to do with the porridge. In any case, that poem was running in my head as I use this: Ginger Body Scrub from North Haven Spa in Baguio!

North Haven Spa: Strawberry Jam Body Scrub Review

Hello! It’s been wild for the last few days. I did create a schedule of sorts for my day, unfortunately, it was never followed. Le sigh~

 

During one of my work-related trips, I landed in the summer capital of the Philippines – Baguio! I REALLY WANTED TO GO THERE JUST BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER. I love the cold weather, the fog, the fact that I will wear a nice jacket, be cozy under the covers, and the picturesque sight of the mountains. So when I saw Baguio was in the list of places to be assigned to, and as destiny may have put it, placed me there, I was so happy! I will definitely not trade my cold and cozy spot there over a hot, humid, view of the sea. It’s been 3 years since I last went to Baguio. As I type this, I am dreaming to go back there.

Before going back to Manila, we passed by North Haven Spa quickly (15 minutes-quick), and I hauled the scrubs they have. Ha! I wished to extend my stay, but call of duty. I headed back to Manila with the team, as scheduled.

 

Among the 4 scrubs I bought, the first scrub I tried is one of their new ones – Strawberry Jam Scrub!

Yum! Strawberry yum! But is it as yummy on the skin as well?

North Haven Spa: Green Tea Body Scrub Review

Last February, a colleague of mine went to Baguio City for their flower festival. She mentioned that they also plan to drop by this quite famous spa, North Haven Spa, and if I want something from there. I had absolutely no idea what to take so she suggested for me to get their famous body scrub and massage oil in Strawberry and Green Tea.

I requested for a Strawberry massage oil (for my mom), and Stawberry and Green Teabody scrubs (for my mom and I).

Unfortunately, there weren’t any Strawberry scrubs available, so I only got their Green Tea Body Scrub.

ONE Naturales: Shea My Lips Lip Balm Review

While I was looking over blogs for a good and affordable lip balm, I came across One Naturales. There were raves about it. But what really sealed the deal was when they had their anniversary sale.

Without any hesitation, I bought their lip balm.
