Beauty + Immunity: 4Life Transfer Factor® Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body, and while it is a key component of connective tissues, we usually hear most about its skin health benefits. Collagen can do a lot more for our body than just support healthy skin, though. 4Life Transfer Factor Collagen provides total body wellness through hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidant protection, and patented 4Life Transfer Factor®.

4Life Transfer Factor Collagen improves skin moisture, tone, and elasticity, while promoting overall longevity and healthy aging. It slows down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also dermatologist-tested. Studies show improvements for skin, nails, and hair in just 8 weeks!

4Life’s collagen is sourced from Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. 4Life Transfer Factor Collagen contains hydrolyzed collagen, which breaks peptides into smaller units that are easier for our body to use. 4Life Transfer Factor Collagen contains 5,000 mg of hydrolyzed collagen per packet.

This revolutionary product from 4Life, The Immune System Company™, combines healthy skin support with 4Life Transfer Factor. 4Life Transfer Factor is extracted from cow colostrum and chicken egg yolk. It is a product made by the immune system for the immune system. 4Life Transfer Factor can boost, educate, and balance the immune system. Recent independent laboratory studies show that core 4Life Transfer Factor products bolster Natural Killer (NK) cell activity in the presence of a health threat.† This product can give consumers much-needed immune support.

4Life Transfer Factor Collagen also contains Vitamin C and E and provides additional antioxidant support. And, in addition to being IFANCA Halal Certified, it is also gluten-free and soy-free. It has a neutral taste, so you can enjoy 4Life Transfer Factor Collagen in your favorite cold drink!

Wettrust Feminine Care Product Review


 It's time we had a girl talk. Contrary to popular belief, feminine wash isn't the sole solution to take care of our intimate parts . I can't stress enough the importance of visiting your OB-Gyne at least once a year and making sure you're clear from within.

Introducing products from the leading Korean brand Wettrust. They're basically categorized as inserting and non-inserting.

4. Take out the applicator and get into a comfortable position. Then, insert the applicator approx. 5-8cm (from the tip).

Damaged Hair? You Might Be Using the Wrong Products. Treat It with the “My Collagen Miracle” Habit





Is the lack of social activities making you care less about your hair’s condition? You might want to do a quick re-check on your hair condition.

Being indoors does not necessarily mean your hair is completely free from the risks of hair damage. If your hair is showing signs of tutchang, dryness, dullness, and frizz, chances are, it’s damaged. Exposure to heat in the form of hair styling tools, humidity, and chemical treatments weakens your hair’s fibers and strips off nutrients, moisture, and color, causing more damage. Not to mention that continuous use of the wrong haircare products can also harm your strands.

Strengthen your hair’s core and keep it from further damage by using collagen-infused haircare products — the ingredient that has done wonders to the skin.


Introducing My Collagen Miracle

Collagen provides amino acids in your body that then builds proteins to help strengthen hair from root to tip. It also prevents your hair from thinning, discoloration, and more damage. This miracle ingredient has done wonders for the skin and is now making rounds for its hair strengthening benefits.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the power of collagen could be found in a haircare product? You won’t have to deal with regrets when choosing the wrong products again.

Say good riddance to damaged hair when you use the Pantene Collagen Miracle Conditioner — formulated with a blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, miracle serum, and real collagen, that moisturizes hair, targets damaged strands, and strengthens hair that’s frizz-free with salon-like results.

Unlike other conditioners that only have hydrolyzed collagen, Pantene’s Collagen Miracle Conditioner contains real collagen with a triple helix structure that gives support and structure to each hair strand, providing protection from external causes of damage.








Other Conditioners vs. Pantene Collagen Miracle Conditioner

For more information, watch Dr. Aivee Teo’s video where she shares expert advice on how effective collagen works in protecting your hair — keeping frizz, dryness, and damage at bay.

Use Pantene Collagen Miracle Conditioner daily and save yourself from the hassle of dealing with damaged and dry hair. Instead, enjoy the miraculous salon smooth hair, collagen has to offer.

You don’t need to sweat going out and exposing your hair to the extreme heat and humidity when you can conveniently shop Pantene products from the comfort of your own home and checkout through Lazada or Shopee.





Clear Skin Shield Patch By WISHTREND Review



Pimple patches are one of my go to solutions whenever I have an active breakout.

Claims:

This hydrocolloid acne patch protects the skin against dirty water, dust and physical contact. The thin, breathable fabric quickly absorbs impurities while naturally covering problem areas.

Packaging:

This acne patch comes in a resealable sleek metallic blue pouch. Inside you will get 36 patches in total. Packed in three individual peel-off plastic sheets labeled with their corresponding sizes. You will get two sheets of 12mm patches and one sheet of 14mm patches.

How Do I use it:
I clean and dry the problem area first and put on my moisturizer. I choose the correct size for the acne. Applied it directly with the sticky part of the patch.

Review:

This Patch suits sensitive skin:

I have a combination of dry/oily sensitive skin. This patch helps in sucking the spot fluid without the risk of irritation. I sometimes accidentally pop a pimple whenever I do my skincare routine and this patch protects the pimple for that type of situation.

Thin and Subtle

This patch has a transparent, breathable fabric that covers the acne spot effectively. I used this on a zoom meeting with a client and it remains undetectable.

Great for spot treatment:

This is effective for spot treatment for pimple that is ready to pop, those with a head. I have one on top of my eyebrows and this patch only took 3 days to suck all the gunk out and flatten that pimple. It will take longer for a cystic acne but you can still use the patch as a protective barrier to reduce the risk of poking or irritating the pimple further.


Sticks like glue and handy

The adhesion of this patch is like glue. It doesn't budge or glide even if I use it after I put on my moisturizer or sunscreen. It can remove dead skin as well. The patches are travel-friendly and a space-saver and perfect for those who stay in on their work area or already going to work.

How much and Where to get it:

This retails for P550 and you can get this @kbeautycafe website, Lazada and at Wishbeauty on Shopee. You can also find it here:

Celepiderme Hug your skin moisture toner


I recently switched to a simpler skincare routine coz I’m always either exhausted from work or in a hurry. One of the most basic but essential parts of my routine that I never skip is applying a toner or essence.

I always alternate between my hydrating and exfoliating toners. Since I've been having rough patches on my skin, I prefer using the exfoliating toners quite often. Due to over-exfoliation, my skin is now flaky and peeling. I was on the lookout for a toner that will help me strengthen my skin barrier whilst providing that needed hydration. Good thing I discovered Celepiderme Hug Your Skin moisture toner. 

šŸŒ·Notable ingredients:



Brightening and Anti-Aging: Niacinamide
Promotes wound healing: Centella Asiatica Extract,Madeccasoside,Sodium Hyaluronate and Panthenol
Acne-Fighting: Tea tree oil 


šŸŒ·Claims:
Whitening and relieving wrinkles
Low irritation moisturizing toner
Strengthens skin barrier and protects skin 

šŸŒ·Packaging: I love that they kept the packaging simple in a translucent bottle with the instructions at the back. 





šŸŒ·Review: I have been using this toner for two weeks and it definitely became a staple product on my skincare routine. The consistency of this toner is like water. There is no tacky feeling upon application, plus points for being alcohol-free and Paraben-free as welll.




It glides on smoothly and is easily absorbed by my skin. The toner has a mild Tea tree oil smell to it. I'm quite impressed that it helped calm down the redness and flaking of my skin. I also noticed that some acne bumps on my forehead reduced in size. The PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) on my cheeks lightened up. I also use this toner as a face mask when I need that extra boost of hydration in the morning. It makes my skin look more hydrated and gives it a subtle glow.
