Purederm Collagen Eye Zone Mask | Review

Hello ladies!

Purederm Collagen Eye Zone Mask - Beauty and Skin Care Review - by Filipino Filipina Blogger - Top Lifestyle Blog Manila Philippines (www.TheGracefulMist.com)
Purederm Collagen Eye Zone Mask | Review by @TheGracefulMist (www.TheGracefulMist.com)

I recently found this reasonably-priced eye mask at Watsons Philippines. I often have dark circles. It could be because of genetics or just my lifestyle. Despite this, I often want to get the fresh look as if I had a lot of sleep. Our eyes play a major role in our overall look. They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, which is more of a reason to have eyes that look well-rested to represent my content and happy soul.

"I Want to Become Sample Room`s Next Beauty Insider!"

Hello Lovely Ladies and Roommates!





A few weeks ago, I was browsing around my feed on Instagram and I happen to see Sample Room Philippines` quest to find the next beauty insider. I personally believe that reviews can be extremely helpful and influential in making decisions when it comes to buying a product or availing a service. This is the reason why it`s extremely significant for a blogger like me to be careful with how I do my reviews.

Summer is in which is why we see a lot of colorful decorations in malls, schools, and public places. The summer season is often associated with fun, color, and vibrancy which is why dresses with edgy colors, designs and styles are often popular during this time.

Black tends to absorb heat which is why white or light colors tend to be the best option for hot days. Wearing black dresses in the the summer shouldn`t be a problem depending on the material and design of the clothes.

No More Dandruff and Flakes with Zenutrients` Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner

Hello ladies!

No More Dandruff and Flakes with Zenutrients` Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner | Blog Review by +The Graceful Mist (www.TheGracefulMist.com) | Product/s from www.SampleRoom.PH
No More Dandruff and Flakes with Zenutrients` Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner | Blog Review by +The Graceful Mist (www.TheGracefulMist.com)

I`ve always loved all natural and organic products. Using products that are as close as using raw ingredients from nature are great because most all natural and organic products contain nutrient-rich ingredients and doesn`t have commonly known harmful chemicals.

Zenutrients is a brand I found years ago through Sample Room Philippines. It was a blessing that I found both Sample Room Philippines and Zenutrients. Sample Room Philippines paved the way for me to try out products from Zenutrients. At the same time, it was great that I became more aware of Zenutrients products because there aren`t many accessible and reasonably priced all natural and organic products in my area. Thankfully, Zenutrients both have an online store and physical store.

Recently, I had another opportunity to try out Zenutrients` Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner through Sample Room Philippines. I`ve tried other hair products from Zenutrients before like the Gugo Strengthening Hair Shampoo and Conditioner, and Gugo Strengthening Serum. So far, I like the Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner more because this pair is targeted to take care of the scalp and reduce or eliminate dandruff.  To know more about my experience using this shampoo and conditioner, please continue reading.

4 Classically Beautiful Wedding Dresses to Pass On

Hello Ladies!

4 Classically Beautiful Wedding Dresses to Pass On | Article by +The Graceful Mist (www.TheGracefulMist.com)

June to October is usually the peak season of wedding events. Weddings usually entail long preparations for the motif, flowers, decorations, venue, food, guest list, bridesmaids' and groomsmen's attire, the groom's attire, and the bride's gown.

Besides the groom, the bride is usually the center of attention especially on that awaited moment of her walking down the aisle with her father ready to pass her to her groom. Since the bride is one of the central attractions of a wedding, many guests will also put their focus on her overall appearance like with how her hair, make-up, and gown look.

The bride's wedding dress is not just a simple clothing, it's a symbolic and significant dress that will represent her old and single life, and her new and married life. A wedding dress can give one so many memories especially because it can be passed on to the fiancee of a woman's son or to her own daughter.

Passing wedding dresses from generation to generation can be a wonderful tradition a family can do to pass memories and legacy. Most importantly, this kind of tradition will help couples save money on a dress a bride needs to wear only once.

Here are 4 relatively inexpensive and classically beautiful styles of wedding dresses a bride can later pass on to her daughter-in-law or daughter:
