Road to Financial Freedom

  “Spendthrift” is my mom’s mantra for how she handles money. As soon as she started giving me monetary money when I was in 6th grade, she would tell me not to spend everything, especially on the things that I do not need. Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want. But being a nurse in my country, the salary is not enough to feed our family let alone live a comfortable life. I have three children and pets at home. To sustain all our needs, I need to find ways how to earn in addition to what my husband is earning. I started to find ways how to earn passive income and a steady stream of income. Growing up, I know that once you graduate from college and earn a degree, you can earn a living. But there was a shift of mindset when I was exposed to the power of social media. Admittedly, it helped me open doors to many opportunities including learning di

Review: Celeteque Facial Moisturizer

When I got pregnant with my baby boy, my face was extremely dry and it was aggravated by our travel when we went to Sagada. During the nine months of pregnancy, I didn't bother on putting on something since I was too lazy to even cook let alone do my skin care routine. I love skin care products and in fact, I have different brands on my stash but honestly, sometimes I am just too exhausted to even think about taking care of myself. I was wrong.

It worsened a week after I gave birth to my little boy. It was extremely painful and even bugged my mom to visit our derma. But lo and behold, all I ever needed was a precious moisturizer. Admittedly, I stopped using them eversince I became a SAHM, to sum it up I think it was already 5 years since the last time I put on some. 

She gave me initially Cetaphil dermablend mositurizer. It was good until I was out. So I looked for it all over the drugstores but it wasn't available in our place. I had to resort to what I used back when I was in college which is the Pond's cream plus Argan oil but unfortunately I was allergic to it. So I am back to square one. 

I had to find a similar moisturizer which is gentle to the skin and non-codomogenic. Until I came accross Celeteque moisturizer. It was a fraction of the price of Cetaphil, and I thought why not try it. After five days of religiously applying it to my face, the redness on my face magically disappeared, my skin was so soft (admittedly it has never been this soft), and my skin just looks so hydrated. I love it because it is non-sticky and feels so light when applied on my face and has also a cooling effect. 



Now I find myself a new favorite moisturizer which is readily available in drugstores. Oh, it is affordable too. If I am not mistaken, it is only P100+ per 50g tube. The packaging also is cool to the eyes and I love that it indicates the ingredients on the box. I have tried this also under my make-up and my face looks hydrated all day without being too oily (considering I have oily skin) after applying it. 

Have you tried one of these? Share your thoughts.
