Biotulin: Bring Back Beauty Without Pain

Most people desire to always look young. And while some is still in search for the fountain of youth, they would tend to push their limits to defy aging—even if it means taking risks with needle injections. This is what happens with Botox

Although widely popular for wrinkle reduction, Botox has its drawbacks too. It reduces fine lines by invading nerve cells to temporarily paralyze the muscles. When done wrong, Botox can be damaging and you could suffer from facial freeze.

Protection at its Finest: Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway


 I have a confession to make: I don't love the idea of putting on moisturizers or lotion. You see, because the weather is so humid in the Philippines, lotions make me feel sticky and sometimes, icky. But then there's the exception of a soft and velvety finish like the Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway, and I've been a convert ever since.

Freestyle Unli BBQ: SAMGYUPSAL KING



Having been to South Korea twice, I am fond of eating Korean BBQ and noted a few places in Manila that is perfect for my liking. But recently, I have been invited at Samgyupsal King at The Lifestyle "Le Village" Park and I never realized until that time that they are located at my favorite pink themed food park. While most unli BBQ places have their own establishments, I think setting up inside a food park is also perfect, as if you're in a "pojangmacha" (street tent stall in Korea)

Halloween Hits: Spookiest Films of All Time


Claiming to be a fearless soul? We all instantaneously muster up the extensive valor to watch scary movies especially during the Halloween season. After all, it is real fun to spook your friends--including yourself, just admit it--to keep up with the chilling atmosphere. Armed with a resourceful (or otherwise) costume and a bag of mouthwatering goodies from your eventful trick or treat, let’s see if you can bare these frightening films alone or with peers during Halloween night! 


The Shining is a 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s 1977 illustrious horror novel of the same name. It focuses on a determined writer and recovering alcoholic who works as a custodian at a historic hotel during the off season. He settles in with his wife and son who is besieged by psychic visions. As his son’s premonitions become more difficult, he realizes the hotel's horrifying past and starts turning into a murderous maniac bound to torment his loved ones. The film epitomizes sublime fragments of jump scare: the captivating visuals and musical scoring, the improvisation of the memorable and startling quote: "Here's Johnny!", and the eerie young twin sisters on the corridor lingered in most people’s nightmares and significantly impressed them. The Shining is hailed by critics, and has become a core of today’s pop culture. Mathematicians at London's King's College utilized statistical figuring in a research mandated by Sky Movies to determine that The Shining was the "perfect scary movie" because of its precise harmony of different aspects such as impact, suspense, and gore. It stars the infamous method actor Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, and Danny Lloyd. The creepy movie trailer may be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S014oGZiSdI.


Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film, “The Shining” is highly regarded to be one the scariest horror films of all time.


The Ring is a 1998 Japanese paranormal and mind-altering horror film. Adapted from the 1991 novel of the same name by Koji Suzuki, as well as the Japanese folk tale Banchō Sarayashiki, a Japanese myth of fragmented faith and vows resulting to a desolate fate, the movie centers on a reporter who probes the mystery behind a cursed videotape that kills the watcher 7 days after viewing it. The movie became the highest grossing horror film in Japan, was critically praised by reviewers, and garnered immense following in the West. The unanticipated twist in the story and the never-ending goosebumps caused by “Sadako”, the vengeful ghost with her long straight black hair covering her face and dirty long white dress while crawling out of the static television screen and that spooky phone call with the screeching sound after watching the videotape paved its status as one of the most petrifying films of all time. It generated several follow-ups and started a trend of Western reprises, beginning with the 2002 American version. The haunting movie trailer may be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcgCM2FyU8s.

Get Out is a 2017 American horror film written and directed by comedian Jordan Peele in his directorial debut. It revolves on an African-American photographer who unravels a troubling secret when he meets the “liberal” family of his Caucasian girlfriend. It stars the remarkable British actor Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, and Catherine Keener. The movie is often considered as one of the greatest horror thrillers of modern American cinema. It is a brilliant allegory on racism and is a political satire on post-Obama America. It successfully triggered the trend of smart horror films (cue John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place”) with low-key but poignant and frightening narratives with a small budget that can still make you think. It instills dread on Hollywood that loves remakes and recycled superheroes. At the 2018 Academy Awards, Get Out won the celebrated Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. As Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian cleverly summarized: “[Get Out] is a mainstream feature film bold enough, tactless enough, irresponsible enough to invoke race outside the solemn confines of documentary…The point is that Get Out takes pessimism and converts it into defiance – and laughs.” The terrifying movie trailer may be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzfpyUB60YY&t=1s.

Unmask That Youthful Glow with Diana Stalder


Aging  is inevitable. Sooner or later, we will all go through this process and changes in your skin will happen as the years pass. Gravity is also the culprit that causes skin to droop downwards due to its continuous pull on our bodies and facial skin. As such, exposure to UV light or Ultraviolet radiation, breaks down our skin’s connective tissue which speeds the natural aging process and becomes the primary cause of early wrinkling. But you know, aging can be minimized if you just know how.
