Grips Hair Styling Products by SkinTec

With the rise of hip and cool hairstyles to improve your self-image, it is important to choose products that provide not only quality but also nourishment to your hair. SkinTec Advance Inc. developed  Grips hair styling products specifically made not only to style, but to also care for the hair. It is available in three forms: gel, clay, and wax. Just chose your preference, depending on your purpose and hair type.

Based on my experience, gels are best used on setting curls. Good thing the loot bag from SkinTec also included Grips Hair Gel. Whenever I curl my hair, I apply gel to fix it. I also use it to prevent frizz. So far, the product has performed well. It dries up a few minutes after application and it holds my hair in place instantly, may it be wet or dry. It smells good too! I can't tell which exactly, but the scent is one of those candies in my childhood: sweet and refreshing. Plus, Grips Hair Gel is formulated with D-Panthenol to moisturize your hair. 

Grips Hair Gel. 
Grips Hair Gel is available in Strong Hold, Strong Hold with Aloe Vera, and Extra Strong Hold. Prices, as of writing, are PhP 11.55 for a 50 gram bottle and PhP20.90 for a 130 gram bottle. Sachets (12 pieces) at 14 grams is available at PhP15.90. Let me say this: it is unbelievably cheap but the performance is of quality.

Next in the Grips line is Clay FX. Hair Clay is used when you prefer not to have that wet-look that hair waxes do. It is matte when applied and the hold is strong. Fans of Daniel Padilla know that this is what he uses to have that cool hairstyle on TV.

Grips Clay FX is easily applied on the hair. The color of the product is light gray. The smell is also similar to the candy-like scent of Grips Hair Gel. Furthermore, this hair clay has the EasyWash formula. With that, it can be easily rinsed off from your hair, unlike other hair clay brands out there. It also sa Pro-Vitamin B5 to keep the hair healthy. This is already a premium product from SkinTec! 

Grips Hair Clay FX.
Grips Hair Clay FX is available in 75 gram jar (PhP 86.90) and in 5 gram sachets (PhP4.35 per piece). 

Lastly, we have Grips Hair Wax. I let my straight-haired male colleagues to try this out and they have positive feedback about it. The product worked well in achieving those K-pop or spiky hairstyles. The smell is similar to a hair conditioner. The hold lasts until you wash it. Take note, hair waxes and hair clay need to be washed with shampoo to remove it. I got to say, the effects of hair wax are more visible and works better with short straight hair. This product is also formulated with Pro-Vitamin B5 to nourish your hair.

Grips Hair Wax.
Grips Hair Wax is available in three variants: Hard and Shiny (75 gram jar: PhP 81.75, 5 gram sachet: PhP 3.40), Xtreme Hard and Mat (75 gram jar: PhP 85.00, 5 gram sachet: PhP 3.63), and Hard and Mat (75 gram jar: PhP 81.75, 5 gram sachet: PhP 3.40).

I, on the other hand, have just discovered another use for Grips Hair Wax. I asked my fellow cosplayer friends on what they use to fix and hold the wig to get the edgy anime-look. Their answer: hair wax. I wouldn't believe it at first, until I saw some of them actually use it. Other cosplayers have high-quality wigs and putting wax on it was okay. They said that it won't damage the wig. Further, they told me not to use clay or gel on wigs as these may destroy it. 

Me, with my medium-quality wig, still tried the effect of hair wax on it. I used the Hard and Shiny variant of Grips Hair Wax. I only put little amount on the bangs to create that anime-look. Oops, I forgot to ask my friends on how to wash the wig afterwards. Anyway, I will observe the long term effects on my wig and I will update you.

Grips gives you the ease of styling your hair (and wig!), while nourishing it at the same time. It is available in affordable prices, too! Being confident has just been made easier with Grips! 

Be as confident as Daniel Padilla.
Grips and other products by SkinTec are available in Puregold Supermarket, Robinsons Supermarket, Shopwise, Rustan's Supermarket, and in other leading supermarkets and drugstores nationwide.

The 2019 Starbucks SG Planner

Happy New Year, dear readers! The year 2019 comes with new wishes, new beginnings, and of course, new planners! Yay! I'm excited for all of it. The new year for me means a fresh start for all the failures I've had for the previous year. Yep, I feel ya! 2018 was kinda rough for me, too. But anyways, I'm here to share with you a tool to help us face the days ahead.  I'm sure that some of us take life as it goes along. But there are others, like me, who have a planning personality. And lemme tell ya, it's really frustrating how things don't go according to plan. Most of the time, life doesn't make it go as planned. Ugh... But fret not! Even if life foils everything, that doesn't stop us from using planners! Wheee~ They're cute and inspirational. They give us a sense of "getting our life together" , too. Hahaha~ So for this post, I'm gonna share with you the Starbucks Singapore  2019 planner!  The 2019 Starbucks Singapore Planner

Lee Min Ho Mall Tour: SM Mall of Asia Leg

I still can't believe that it was just two nights ago (November 18, 2012), I saw Lee Min Ho in the flesh! As early as 5:30PM, I was already in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, joining the fans as we eagerly wait for his arrival. The crowd was very overwhelming. I bet some people waited there two hours earlier than I did!  Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor. His popular dramas include Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, and Faith among others. His prowess as an actor and his to-die-for looks are enough to make women go gaga over him -me included!  He is my favorite actor. I love his dramas. In the future, as I gain more skills, I plan to cosplay his characters, especially Johnny from City Hunter. He is the reason why I love Korean products like Etude House . Now, I have another brand to love... and it's a Filipino brand! I'm very happy that Lee Min Ho is the latest endorser of the clothing line, Bench .  Crowds make me uncomfortable. It was my first time to have ever attended

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
