There is one savior for me whenever I am having a set of pimple outbreaks. Collagen Toner by Watsons with Penta Lucent system is the best facial toner that I am optimistic about my face. This toner has the best instant effect on my face, indicating the compatibility on my skin. One thing more, I can feel the freshness upon using this facial toner every after use. There is a feeling of firmness that I believe it can really minimize fine lines around my face and even on my skin.

Collagen Toner by Watsons with Penta Lucent system has five different collagen compounds that are essential to improve the skin's collagen and elastin components. One effect is to firm the face by means of rejuvenating collagen and elastin. The Penta Lucent system aims to eliminate stressed cells responsible for making the face look pale and look darker.

3 Best Tips to eliminate Acne or Pimples and Scars:

1. Wash your face with either your favorite soap or facial cleanser: For best results, it is always essential to use the Collagen Toner with a clean face. Wash your face using any soap or facial cleanser helps to eliminate excess oil, dirt, dead cells, and impurities in your skin. One thing more, washing your face removes harmful bacteria and viruses, responsible for causing infection.

2. Use a base moisturizer right after washing your face: It is important to maintain the moisture of the face after washing with soap. The rationale is to prevent the face and neck from severe dryness that can lead to irritation and discomfort. Base moisturizer restores moisture to the epidermis, which nourishes the cells after washing away all impurities.

3. Apply the toner in a circular motion: After the washing and moisturizing routine took place, it is now time to apply the toner. Use a small amount of cotton to absorb the toner and then begin the circular motion to the face. Start from the frontal area of the face in a circular motion and then around the face. Include the neck and the nape when applying the toner for the best overall results. 

Note: You can apply the toner to your face at least twice a day. For me, I apply once a day before bedtime. My face routine usually takes place before I sleep at night.

Lately, Kween Mother, the matriarch of Cadena family tackles about the Youtube Channel of late vlogger Lloyd Cafe Cadena. In her latest vlog, Kween Mother reiterates they will keep the channel to serve as digital memorabilia for the family, relatives, and to the Cadenators. Kween Mother opted to preserve the digital property of late Lloyed Cadena as it gave a memorable experience to the viewers who relate the scenes from the vlog to their real lives. 

However, in the middle of the discussion gave some viewers chills as they watch how the family decides about the fate of the channel. Starting from the 6'th minute, there are some voices that a viewer with a sharp auditory capacity can hear it. I first watched the latest vlog of Mother Kween to know how will they decide on the fate of Lloyd's channel and noticed some of the babbling words but never did I realize something weirder.

Here are the parts of the video where you can hear voices of Lloyd:
1st:  6:39: "Help"
2nd: 6:45: "Kausapin mko" (talk to me)
3rd:  6:48: "Ma!" (Mom)
4th:  7:22: "Uggh! Nahihirapan nako" (It's difficult for me)

I never thought Kween Mother will make it to the trending topic's list. Fans quickly comment on the clips they heard, where I just indicated above this paragraph, it gave me the chills and courage to rewatch the video. Upon watching, I confirmed two out of four clips where there are strange voices while Kween Mother is talking. 

The most audible voices are the 3rd ("Ma!") and the fourth voice ("Uggh! Nahihirapan nako!"). The first and second voices are hard for me to listen to. However upon replaying it again, I can finally hear the second voice ("Kausapin mko"). But it is really giving me a hard time to hear the first voice, which is "help"!

Upon posting on my Facebook page, which is The Story of Anthony, there are some comments saying the voices were uttered during the time Lloyd was fighting for his life in the hospital. Other comments suggest Lloyd's departure is something that is difficult for him to adjust in the other dimension that he is having a hard time coping with his new environment in the spiritual world. 

Anyhow, I would like to say may Lloyd Cafe Cadena Rest in Peace in his journey to the spiritual world. Condolence to the family and hoping for a brighter endeavor in the next years to come.

Acne breakout is the worst thing that can happen to your face. Pimple outbreak makes it even worse due to the appearance of papules all around your face. Whenever there is either a pimple or acne breakouts in your face, it affects your mood. The concentration on your daily routine will have a lesser focus due to the appearance of red marks on the face or neck. After having a breakout, the next concern is the appearance of dark scars. 

I bought Pond's BB cream, thinking that it can really hide visible acne and pimple breakouts. That is my main purpose why I buy bb cream and foundation to use it whenever going out during the daytime. Good thing Watson's offer this product that seeks to help individuals gain their confidence back even if they are having pimple outbreaks. I decided to choose Pond's age miracle BB+ Anti Aging BB cream. This cream seems better than the regular bb cream.

Back Story: One month ago before purchasing Pond's anti-aging BB cream, I went to Watsons and purchased their latest rejuvenating set. The price is worth Php 800 and my money got short to purchase this product. So I have to leave behind Pond's age miracle anti-aging BB cream to purchase on the next month, which I already have it now and made a review. 

Upon applying the cream, it gives an instant coverage on your face, hiding pimples and scars. One thing more is the cream's ability to hide fine lines such as wrinkles. The ingredients help to restore your skin's youthful balance due to the presence of zinc oxide, niacinamide, and linoleic acid. 

The Box contents:
  • Makeup brush: One good thing about purchasing this product is the free brush. This brush is ideal for applying face powder on top of the bb cream in your face and neck. The brush has fine strokes when you apply additional dry powder.
  • Bb cream: The main product. It contains an anti-aging ingredient that is suitable to make you look younger than your age. Upon applying the cream on my face, it can really make a difference between before and after photos on the thumbnail. 
Price: At Watsons Store, you can avail of the product for just Php 499 or roughly 500. If you prefer purchasing online, you should expect a higher value due to the courier fee and another fee for the delivery.

The detoxifying effects of this ingredient help to lower cholesterol, responsible for preventing heart diseases, stroke, and cardiovascular ailments. 

2. Vitamin C: In the form of ascorbic acid, this is the most important nutrient in our body for defending against pathogens.

Skin Reborn Rejuvenating Set is one of the newest rejuvenating sets you can find in the market. This product is locally made in the Philippines, highlighting the genes of Filipino skin from local dermatologists and chemists. One interesting thing is the use of Kojic Acid as a powerful ingredient that is suitable for making the skin looking more radiant. Here are the components of Skin Reborn Rejuvenating Set:

Each Set Contains the Following:
  • Kojic Acid Papaya Soap: Best to remove dirt in your face and body while the kojic acid and other ingredients provide a brighter effect on the skin.
  • Cleansing Toner: The perfect solution to clear out hidden oil and dirt in the face and neck.
  • Rejuvenating Cream: Contains essential nutrients that soothe the first and second layers of the skin while moisturizing and repairing collagen and elastin compounds. 
  • Sunblock: It has SPF 30 protection against the harmful UVA and UVB from the Sun.


1. Wash your face using lukewarm water. Make sure to wash your face, neck, at the back of the neck, nape, and the upper chest area. Using a circular motion, use the Kojic soap around your face, neck, ears, nape, and in the upper chest. The reason is to prevent uneven skin tone when using the product for more than one week. Rinse with water after one to two minutes.

2. Optional: Apply moisturizer immediately after use, which is my routine. You may or may not use moisturizer as an optional choice before applying the toner. The reason for this optional choice is to prevent any irritation from the face due to the strong impact of the kojic acid soap and the toner. 

3. The next step is to apply the cleansing toner for the face. Note that it is important not to apply too much toner as it can cause irritation to the face after using the kojic acid soap. Same with the Kojic Acid Soap application, brush the neck, nape, and back of the ears with the toner.

4. Apply creams. The first is the rejuvenating cream, which is my favorite part of using the rejuvenating set. This cream is very important as it helps your dermis and epidermis regenerate. Then apply sunscreen to protect your face and neck from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB from the sun when applying it during the daytime. 

Note: You may apply the rejuvenating cream either during daytime or night time, depending on your free time to pamper your face. Skin Reborn does not restrict any gender. This product is universal, regardless of your gender or sexual orientation.

The Philippines sits within the Pacific Ring of Fire. This is the reason why the country often experiences ground shaking due to the presence of fault lines scattered across the archipelago. The Philippines is currently being rattled by the movement of Eurasian and the Philippine plates. There are multiple fault lines scattered across the nation, making it susceptible to earthquakes each day. The subduction zones in the archipelago are also causing pressure for the ground to cause a burst of magma in the surface of the Earth, known as Volcanoes.

The country is home to at least 25 active volcanoes and hundreds more potentially active ones that are living in a dormant stage. In this blog, I will be discussing my own Top 10 Most Active Volcanoes in the Philippines including some potentially active volcanoes.

1. Taal Volcano: The most popular volcano as of the moment due to its eruptive activity as of the moment. Taal Volcano is currently under Alert Level 4 status according to the Philippine Volcanology and Seismology due to the ongoing eruption. The volcano has now 35 eruptions in known history by the volcanologists.

2. Mayon Volcano: This is the Philippines' most active volcano. With an elevation of 2,462 meters above sea level, it is the highest mountain in the Bicol region. Mayon accumulated at least 50 eruptions with the recent in 2018.

3. Kanlaon: Located on the island of Negros in the Philippines. The volcano has at least 26 known eruptive history, making it the third most active volcano in the country. With an elevation of 2,435, it is the highest point on the island, making it suitable for vegetable farmers to plant temperate crops.

4. Bulusan Volcano: Another volcano in the Bicol Peninsula is silently spewing ash from time to time. Bulusan Volcano is the fourth most active volcano in the Philippines with 17 known eruptions recorded by the Phivolcs.

5. Hibok Hibok: This volcano created the island of Camiguin, which is also an island province in Mindanao. I went here last November of 2019 and I am thankful no eruption happened during my visit. With 5 eruptions in history with the latest in 1952, this island is really geologically active.

6. Smith Volcano: All the way to the northernmost island group in the Philippines, Smith Volcano is noticeably new. It has an estimated height of 600 meters above sea level with at least six known eruption history.

7. Mount Pinatubo: Unknown to many until it erupted in 1991, Pinatubo unleashed its hidden power to make the second-largest eruption in the 20th century after Novarupta in Alaska. Mount Pinatubo is a sacred mountain until it showed its real color that devastated Central Luzon.

8. Mount Parker: T'Boli tribe considers this volcano as a sacred mountain. Unknown to the present-day tribesmen, this sacred mountain blew up in 1641, creating a massive eruption similar to that of Mount Pinatubo.

9. Mount Musuan:  This is a small active volcano in Bukidnon, having to erupt at least two times in the 18th century. What is unique about this volcano is the presence of an installed cellular site to provide telecommunication services for the inhabitants surrounding the mountain.

10: Cagua: In Cagayan Valley, there is an interesting volcano that is now making a new tourist attraction. The volcano made one known eruption in 1907, reminding the residents of its active condition.

Potentially Active Volcanoes
  • Mount Apo (Davao Provinces)
  • Mount Arayat (Pampanga)
  • Mount Banahaw (Quezon)
  • Mount Santo Tomas (Benguet)
  • Mount Makiling (Laguna)
  • Mount Matutum (South Cotabato)

Recently, I just received a scam e-mail, and as a familiar experience, I did what I have to with this type of activity. At first, I became scared because they are now targeting me to pose as a company in order to manipulate and get my confidential information to steal my YouTube and social media accounts. To ignore it. This is my nth time receiving such emails, attempting to acquire my login information and then all confidential files to lure me into their trap. Phishing emails such as this recent activity on my email service provider reminds me of something to be more careful with the things that I always see in the digital world.

Scam emails are risky scenarios that can trick a certain victim to hand out their confidential information. Hackers use manipulating messages and images as a way to further become more successful in their criminal intents online. Phishing emails pose as a replica of some email or social media service providers to make it look real whenever they want to persuade their victims of clicking links to their websites. Once the victim clicks the link, the hacker can now inject their adware and spyware to collect personal information.

4 Tips How to Prevent Phishing Scam in Emails

1. Ignore or delete the message: To answer the question, it is simply by ignoring the message and then delete it forever. Deleting things that give a stressful meaning in your life can prevent future problems that can give you emotional and mental stress in the future. Deleting it and then emptying your trash bin in your email will make you feel more relaxed.

2. Check the source of the Email: When you receive an email and demands something, make sure to consider it as suspicious. Determining the source of all emails coming into your inbox may always pose a threat due to the anonymity of the email. Click the source and determine if it is indeed coming from a legit source will let you realize, you are dealing with something sinister in your email.

3. Inspect the grammar: One important way to determine if the email is a scam will be all about the grammatical composition of the mail. In scam emails, there are grammatical errors you will find since hackers are not that well-versed with the composition of grammars with their choice of words used in their mails or message towards you.

4. Forcing to click a link: One way to know if you are receiving a phishing email is when the message is telling or demanding you to click the link. One thing more is when they will blackmail you such as terminating your channel or account if you will not click the link. This is simply a type of scam that lures you through the application of manipulation.

Always remember, knowledge is power. Awareness is the key to prevent yourself from becoming a victim of phishing scams like this.

If you want to have a great day ahead by regenerating the collagen and elastin formation for your skin, Belo Collagen is the best thing to consider. I became curious about this product a month ago because I saw it in Watsons, department stores, and supermarkets. I decided to purchase a box of Belo Collagen Melon Smoothie powder Drink and a sachet of Collagen powder drink with hyaluronic acid. I became excited about how it will work on my skin.

Let us discuss the first one, Belo Collagen Powder Drink Melon Smoothie. This is the larger sachet as compared to Belo Collagen Powder Drink with Hyaluronic Acid. What I love about this product is the taste of melon fruit. I am certain Belo Medical Group/ Nutraceuticals have experts to create a new way to enhance the collagen production of our bodies. It took me ten days to drink the whole product until I observed something brighter in my skin.

The second product is the Belo Collagen Powder Drink with Hyaluronic Acid. The size of this product is smaller than the melon smoothie. Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin to regenerate the cells, making it softer and smoother. However, there is one main ingredient that many are not aware of, which is the protein called arginine. People with chickenpox are known to be allergic to arginine because it can further help nourish the cyclovirus and replicate to worsen the sores. Other than that, all is well.

Things to prepare:

  • 200-250 ml glass of drinking water
  • Belo Collagen Powder Sachet
  • Spoon or stirring tool for the collagen drink and glass of water
  • A scissor to cut the sachet
  • Use the prepared glass of water, preferably at least 200 ml to 250 ml (Your choice if it is either cold or hot)
  • Open the Belo Collagen Powder Drink and then pour to the glass of water
  • Stir the collagen powder thoroughly (It will not dissolve fast so be patient mixing for five minutes)
  • Drink the collagen drink (Once a day)

Effects of Belo Collagen Powder Drink

After drinking it after ten days, I noticed something dramatic on my skin. Your face will look brighter each day as you are drinking the collagen powder. Your body will start to look less stressed and relaxed all the time. After waking up in the morning, you will feel something good in your body after drinking it at least one week. You will feel a bit lighter on an everyday basis, which is already enough to keep your day always fresh and feel positive.

Do you love the effect of this collagen powder in my body after using it for 10 days?

Which is better, Luxe Organix Aloe Vera Gel or Skin Lab Jeju Aloe Ice Moisturizer?

Testing two products at once is a way for you to determine if which is the better product you can use in the future. This is my chance to know the differences between the two products that I will prefer to buy consumed in a matter of time. As usual from my skincare routine when using moisturizer products, I finally determined this product is really better when it comes to tightening your skin and closing your pores right after making a comparison video between the two.

It is important to make a comparison of the products that you will use for your daily routine. Making such comparisons will let you identify the product that is compatible with the tone of your skin and its reaction to the chemicals or the organic compounds of the object you use. In this way, identifying products that are not compatible with the genetic integrity of your skin and the system will let you prevent allergic products in the market. Let us now start the comparison

Luxe Organix Aloe Vera Gel: This is a special moisturizer that aims to prevents dryness of the skin. The covering color is green with a transparent inside the container. With a 300 ml per piece, it is considerably large and plentiful enough to have at least one month to consume it in your face and other parts of the body. The main composition of the product is aloe vera, which makes up 98% of the gel. The recommendation is at least on a daily basis to see the best result.

Skin Lab Jeju Aloe Ice: One of the most in-demand reformulated products in the market with a new ingredient. The most interesting thing about the product is the cooling ingredient, making the skin feel more relaxed when using the gel. The shape and the amount are similar to Luxe Organix Aloe Veral except for the color of the container and the gel, which are white. One requirement before use is to refrigerate the product before applying the gel into the face.

During the procedure:

1. Applying the products: On the left side of my face is the Luxe Organix Aloe Vera Gel while on the right is Skin Lab Jeju Aloe Ice. I applied at least two tablespoonfuls of gel into each side with different products and massaged thoroughly for at least two minutes. The duration took me at least five minutes until I felt the sensation from the two products. Massaging enables the product to penetrate beneath the skin and moisturizes the layers.

2. Applying ice: Ice is an important pore minimizer with the aloe vera product on the skin. Just rub the ice cubes into the face and perform a circular motion. After applying the two products on both the left and right sides of my face, it is now time to use the ice. The ice helps the pores to shrink due to the cold temperature. The cooler temperature allows constriction to happen to all smooth muscles in the skin when the ice will have direct contact with the skin.

Optional: (Using Jade Roller) Jade roller is a special facial rolling tool to help rejuvenate the skin. The roller has a cool surface that tightens the pores. The massaging effect of the roller allows blood vessel circulation throughout the face. The upward stroke of the roller promotes facial lifting.


After performing all the procedures, it is important to rinse the face with water. A few minutes after using a dry towel to dry my face, I notice something between the two products. On the left side, while using Luxe Organix Aloe Vera Gel, there is a better firmness or tightness. On the right side with Jeju Aloe Ice, there is a lesser tightness all over my face.
