Teachable Moment With Kids: Needs vs Wants

My kids and I have a lot of bonding moments at home, especially now that we are in the second year of this pandemic. They have seen its effects, the limitations, and the people that have been due to the virus. This season is also a perfect time to teach the kids financial literacy since our business is affected during this pandemic. Since they were young, I started teaching them about money. As a parent, it is one of the primary life skills children must learn at home to manage their liquid assets properly. Even in their younger years, I let them use their piggy bank. Any coin that they get changes from the food they buy. They already keep it in their piggy banks.  But how soon must we teach our kids proper money management? As soon as my kid starts to count and recognize money and when they begin receiving monetary allowances, I should start teaching them the importance of money and how to manage it wisely. Before teaching our kids proper money management, they have to learn the diffe

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.
