ADVERTISEMENT | Carabella Pure Collagen Skin Care Products

pEverybody loves having naturally beautiful, young-looking skin -- that's why skin care and skin whitening products and supplements remain one of the world's best-selling items. However, not all products are made equal. Top quality skin care creams and powders are often available at premium prices, with guaranteed effective and enviable results. And while there are cheaper brands available in the market today, the result is either a hit or miss.

Carabella, from the Spanish word for “face” and the Italian word for “beautiful” aims to dispel this by offering an option for Filipinas who wanted to achieve that beautiful, naturally-fair skin without burning a hole on their budget.

As the latest skin care and skin whitening brand, Carabella is differentiating itself from the many skin care brands in the market by bringing in the best ingredients from Japan while utilizing Filipino ingenuity and technology. All Carabella products, except for the best-selling Belleieshua Pure Collagen Supplement Drink, is made locally in the Philippines. The company also hopes to tap to the mid-market segment by offering their products at consumer-friendly prices.

“We noticed that there’s a dearth in the market today on reliable, effective, high-quality skin care products but at more affordable prices. Carabella wanted to change that. Our collagen is sourced directly from Japan because that's where the best skin care ingredients come from. Our goal is to assure Filipinas that they do not have to spend more just to be beautiful. Carabella is here for them," shares Reynaldo Ignes, the president and managing director of GoldenRey Marketing, the company behind Carabella.

Using the purest form of collagen as its main ingredient, Carabella is offering a diverse line of products focused on skin whitening and anti-aging: the best-selling Pure Collagen Soap with Kojic Acid (Php 160 for 90g and Php 220 for 150g); Pure Collagen Soap with Glutathione (Php 170 for 90g / Php 260 for 150g); Pure Collagen Cream to Powder (Php 680 for 15g jar / Php 1,200 for 30g jar); Pure Collagen Cream with Elastin and Alpha Arbutin (Php 280); Pure Collagen Placenta Cream with SPF30 (Php 280); Pure Collagen Bleaching Night Lotion (Php 390); Pure Collagen Day Lotion (Php390); Pure Collagen Perfecting Toner (Php 530); Deo Whitening Spray (Php 490) and Belleieshua Pure Collagen Drink (Php 3,300).

EVENT | Carabella Pure Collagen Grand Launch

Last September 24, I was invited to the launching of Carabella, the latest brand in skin care. When you get an invite hosted by Fab Functions, you know it’s an event not to be missed. The place was beautifully decorated and full of surprises. Guest bloggers were offered floral crown, boquet of flowers as well as Carabella products and gifts. Everyone was feeling pretty good about themselves. :)

The Carabella Pure Collagen launched their collection of skin care and skin whitening products and supplement with the opportunity to have a high quality brand but at more affordable prices. The product range is substantial enough to have something for every beauty buff and although I am yet to try it myself, Carabella's goal is to assure that we Filipinas' don't need to spend more just to be beautiful. Sounds good to me!

The hotspot of the event was the introduction and presentation of all Carabella's products such as the best-selling Pure Collagen Soap with Kojic Acid, Pure Collagen Soap with Glutathione, Pure Collagen Cream to Powder, Pure Collagen Cream with Elastin and Alpha Arbutin, Pure Collagen Placenta Cream with SPF30 and Pure Collagen Bleaching Night. 

...and yes, me and my friend/co-blogger Krish won a raffle. Yey! 

The launching event was held at M Cafe, Greenbelt 5. I do really enjoy the service and their food is amazing. The taste and presentation makes a huge difference.

LOOK | Taking the #PerfectOOTD with OPPO F1s

It's been quite a while since my last post and I know I've been lazy with blogging lately. The truth is, when there are so many things happening in real life you suddenly realize there is not enough time for internet. That being said, I'm not intending to stop blogging completely and will continue doing it just not very often.

We only managed to have a short walk before popping down the local cafe to have cold drinks and delicious desserts. Food in Blue bay is amazingly tasty and I'm not ashamed to admit that I was eating all the time during our photo session and it was fantastic!
As to my outfit, I just love hippie looks especially if its from Simone's Closet. Their clothing was often loose and made of natural fibers like cotton and hemp.

Anywho, posing in the wind was definitely not an option, forgive my poor posture and unbelievably messy hair but thanks to OPPO F1s, I managed to get a great shots for my OOTD.
And if you're anything like me, you occasionaly reach a point where you just get tired of carrying big camera, plus lenses all the time. I reached that point again during this shoot, and I was delighted to leave my DSLR at home and go strolling with just an OPPO F1s that fits in my pocket.

You never know when a picture perfect moment will come up, so you better had your OPPO F1s with you all the time. It is one of a new and rapidly expanding mobile camera that offer the best image quality similar to a DSLR.
