Good Dress Up Ysabel's Daughter Opening Soon at the Mega Fashion Hall!. ELENABLOG


On Jan 28, SM Mega Mall is opening its �high end� wing called Fashion Hall.  As it opens at 9:00am, new stores and kiosks shall be opening too!  One just like Ysabel�s Daughter.  This is the first locally produced bath and body line that is all 100% natural.  This means all the raw materials of each product is from nature, it is chemical-free, has no toxic materials, and no preservatives.   

In the last decade, a vast majority of Filipinos are becoming more and more convinced that they should become eco-friendly, natural consumers, both for the own sake, their family�s well-being and for the environment�s health.

This is a story about Cristina Cruz or Coty, who started her own line of bath and body products that are preservative-free, toxic-chemicals-free and cruelty-free.  She was first inspired by her husband Ricky, who decided to start his own backyard bee colony given all the wonderful natural benefits of raw and unfiltered honey.  The bees in their care generated honey so premium, it inspired her to create a line of bath and body products using this wonderful ingredient.  Also, in her desire to give only the best to her family just like how her mother did, she challenged herself to come up with an entire line of bath and body products the uses the finest, natural raw materials gathered from around the world mixed into gentle creams, soothing lotions, and luscious scrubs, giving generous portions on essential ingredients. This is what started �Ysabel�s Daughter�.

Ysabel is an actual person.  Coty�s mother is an epitome of all our mothers who raised families in endless, selfless and enduring love.  �This is the same care that we would like to share with our patrons,� declares Coty.

Ysabel�s Daughter is proud to present a line of body care products made from high quality 100% natural raw materials.  �What sets our products apart is that we use a much higher concentration of natural active ingredients, like the purest of imported essential oils.  Our products are carefully crafted with a high proportion of these quality ingredients to let your natural beauty shine from within,� Coty further reveals.

Aside from honey, here is just a sneak peak of some of the top-notch raw materials that Coty has added in her bath and body line: Jojoba Oil, Carnitine, Fine Green Luffa Shreds, Moringa, Green Tea, Walnut Scrubs, Essential Oils, L-Arginine, Olives, Lemons, Oranges, Walnut, Laminaria Saccharina Extract, CoQ10, Algae Extract and many more.

Best of all, Ysabel�s Daughter uses no preservatives or toxic chemicals which are sadly prevalent in many commercially available beauty products.

Coty further shares, �We are proud to be a Filipino-run company that can compete with what is out there in the international market.  But despite our international standards, the foundation of a Filipino family is an essential component in how we run things, as well as how we would like our customers to feel when they use what we offer � with the warmth and relaxation of home.�

Finally, Ysabel�s Daughter doesn�t only aim to make Filipinos feel beautiful, it also wants to give back to the community.  The fairly newly formed company has been supporting and contributing to causes of various foundations around the country.  �We believe in setting aside a portion of our income to benefit children in need of education and placing them in schools that provide the proper schooling that they deserve,� Coty shares.

Ysabel�s Daughter is available online on and at the Ysabel�s Daughter kiosk at the upper ground level, Mega Fashion Mall of SM Megamall.

Good Dress Up Wacoal Perfect Fit Party!. ELENABLOG

Last October 26, 2013, I attended the Wacoal Perfect Fit Party! The event sounds exciting because it's one of my favorite brands for intimates and for sure it's going to be an all girls event! It was held at Wacoal's main office in Makati. It's an intimate event, only a few bloggers were invited that's why I'm so thankful to be one of those bloggers to attend the Perfect Fit Party.

From the event title itself, "Perfect Fit" we were really measured during the event because Wacoal aims to provide us the perfect fit. 

Yummy brassiere cupcakes served during the event! I found out that it's from Sweet Patti Cakes! One of the best cupcakes I've ever tasted! :)
What did I tell you about providing the perfect fit? Wacoal gave each of us a box filled with lingerie in our sizes. They let us choose our favorite styles and colors, the best part? We get to take them home! Yay! Can you guess what did I choose?:)

We've also discovered another beauty brand, Pevonia Philippines. Pevonia provides skin care products that are available at the most prestigious destinations, resorts and hotel spas, as well as premier days spas around the world. I love my dry oil body moisturizer that I got from Pevonia. It's not icky plus it smells so good. Check out Pevonia on Facebook , Twitter and Instagram @PevoniaPH :)
We were also asked to design our own brassieres! Here's what I came up with! I wanted a bejeweled bra with purple, blue and blue green gems and a sexy black bra with striped details! I'm so glad we did this, I have my secret dreams of becoming a lingerie designer.hihi

Wacoal didn't just introduced us their stylish undergarments but they also taught us how to take care of our bodies by wearing the perfect undergarments. I think it's important for ladies to know how to wear their undergarments properly and which style to use in different types of clothing or attire.

Thank you Wacoal Philippines for this fab event! We surely had a great time!

Watch out for my next posts as I feature what I got from Wacoal ;)
