CarbTrim and Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

One of the best ways to drink a teaspoon or a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar is to mix this with your regular drink of juice or water. In fact, one of the instructions to having this regularly is to drink a glass of warm water with a T of Apple Cider Vinegar. You can add honey to make the mix sweeter and easier to drink.

This is my way of having a tablespoon or sometimes more, of Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar: mix with CarbTrim and add a slice of lemon or navel orange. TIP: slice a lemon or navel orange and put these in the freezer so you do not need to slice every time you need to make these drinks.

CarbTrim is a carb-blocking product in a refreshing iced tea drink.  It contains Phase 2 white kidney bean, a natural extract clinically-proven to block up to 66% of carbs you eat. ~source

Two of the many benefits of Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar are the following: (Source)

  • Helps control weight
  • Promotes digestion & ph Balance

Now these two would be great together in losing the weight. We need to remember though to moderate food intake and take one or two kinds of exercise to help lose the unwanted pounds.

By the way, I won TEN BOXES of CarbTrim through this photo, so go follow CarbTrim on Twitter and who knows, you might also win boxes of CarbTrim like me 😀

Here are the boxes.

Homemade Body Scrub

My first time to make homemade body scrub or DIY body scrub.

Here was what I did:

Body Scrub



Just mix together and voila! (I deliberately added the brown sugar, that light brown part, to show how it looks like)

How to use the DIY body scrub: You can use this before bathing but be sure to wet the body parts you want to use the homemade body scrub with. Gently use the scrub on your elbows, foot and even face. Wash or rinse with your usual soap or facial/body wash.

Skin will be supple and soft after you rinse the homemade body scrub off. Wash the bathroom floor just in case there is oil residue that might cause slips to the next user.

Easy peasy. If you want to use coconut oil, you can do so. You can also opt to remove the sugar.

You can also use an electronic ph meter if you want, no one is stopping you 😀

Swish Breath Spray

I was supposed to write a review about Swish Breath Spray but I totally forgot about it. How did I remember? The small bottle in my bag has maxed out the sprays it can give, lol!

Here is a photo I took when I got the Swish Breath Spray products (along with Swish Mouthwash) for review:


Let me write down why I like this product, Swish Breath Spray:

  • alcohol-free
  • kills germs and bacteria-causing bad breath
  • convenient to bring anywhere because it is small
  • can last till 100 sprays
  • retails at around Php105 – 110 ( That’s about one peso for every spray)

Here is my Swish Breath Spray along with some Kikay essentials in my bag:

Kikay kit

Swish Breath Spray, like the Swish Mouthwash have Arctic Chill and Peppermint Fresh flavor variants.

I used to have these mint candies in my bag that I pop in my mouth when I feel the need to freshen my breath but I think these contributed to my having toothaches before because these are not exactly sugar-free.

Swish Breath Spray and Swish Mouthwash are available in supermarkets, drug stores and convenience stores nationwide.

Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash

We LOVE Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash.

Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Facial Wash

For my teen daughter who uses a certain creamy beauty bar as her facial wash for years, it was difficult to ask her to try this certain Celeteque Dermoscience product. But when she tried it, there was no going back to the beauty bar for her.

Celeteque Dermoscience+ hydration Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash is gentle. The red double vitamin (C and E) beads are gentle and these “melt” upon touching so one can not feel anything rough on the face upon usage.

Safely removes dead skin cells that may clog pores. It has DUAL VITAMIN NOURISHING BEADS infused with Vitamin C and E that gently burst to help nourish and protect the skin. Its spherical shaped microbeads exfoliate without scratching the skin.

Read more about it here.

Skin feels IS smooth. The fragrance of Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash is just right, not too fragrant (good for people with allergies like me) and not smelling like “medicine”.

Instructions says to “use every other day” but I use this daily, twice a day and my skin loves it because I don’t feel any dryness or irritation. I still have to try the other Celeteque Dermoscience Products.

Read more about Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash.

Celeteque is a product of Unilab.
