Going organic, Sesou Nature Source

I’m starting to have a healthy affair with organic products. As far as I can remember, the first organic product that I got was a lip balm from GIGA’s kiosk in SM North EDSA a few years ago. My next organic purchase was Cyleina’s organic soaps, the Black Pearl and Tomato Soap, which I bought from a trusted online seller.

Last week, my trip to the mall to buy some office supplies led me to a kiosk that sells organic, eco-friendly products ranging from cosmetics, personal care, home care and even pet care.

The Sesou Nature Source kiosk in Trinoma.

Review: Cyleina’s Black Pearl and Tomato Soap

I was bothered by the increasing number of pimple marks on my face last month so I researched for some tips on how to lighten pimple marks, one of which is Cyleina’s Black Pearl and Tomato SoapI am scared that chemical peeling and do-it-yourself peeling products may cause more harm than good so I chose to lighten my pimple marks the organic way.

I am one of those people who can’t resist squeezing pimples, especially when they are swollen and look like they are ready to pop (I can hear my mom, sister and you shouting and telling me to stop squeezing…hehehe…). And because of my habitual scanning for pimples to pinch I got pimple marks on my face.

Review: elf Studio Eyebrow Kit

I seldom apply make-up, and when I do, I leave off the extra task of putting on eyebrow defining products since I have thick eye brow hair. But curiosity took over me so I bought my first eyebrow product, the elf Studio Eyebrow Kit (e.l.f. stands for eyes, lips, face =).

The packaging looks really nice. I was surprised when I saw the price tag; it’s only P249.75, cheaper than I thought. It’s available in four shades/colors: light, medium, dark and ash.

Payment methods for Multiply online stores

My first online store was launched about two years ago. Aside from deciding on what to name it, the other thing that really got me thinking was how I will handle payments from clients.

The payment scheme of an online store is more complex than those of regular stores. For example, when a client comes to your store at the mall, they simply pick what they want, go to the cashier and pay thru cash, gift certificate or credit card.

With just one click, your client can navigate away from your online store because she/he may find your payment methods too toilsome. An online store’s payment scheme must ensure that the clients can pay conveniently and, at the same time, protect your business from “bogus buyers”.

Making art out of air-dry and polymer clay on a whim

If you think that molding clay into cute cupcakes, miniature frappes and colorful accessories is a child’s play, you are wrong. Aside from having a child’s limitless imagination and a grown-up’s patience, you must also be armed with the right tools - a pair of hands that are strong yet gentle at the same time. 

I thought that this will be an easy project. If kids can do it, so can I, right? This was my initial thought when my sister and I bought a pound of air-dry clay, a set of polymer clay, acrylic paints and other claying essentials.

Air-dry clay creations
When I started to make my first air-dry clay creation, a miniature cupcake and a flower pushpin, all the frustrations came pouring in. The icing of my miniature cupcake seemed like poop while the petals of my flower pushpin kept falling off! (Good thing I was able put the petals together by applying air-dry clay on the gaps)
