My Yakult Japan Factory Tour!

This is it, the last day of the Yakult Journalist Tour 2015! We took a 2-hour bus ride to the Mt. Fuji area where the Yakult Fuji Susono Plant is located. I was very excited because I had never been anywhere near Mt. Fuji despite this being my 4th or 5th trip to Japan.

We actually slept for most part of the first hour, by the second hour we could see Mt. Fuji when we look out the bus window.

Finally we got to our destination, we were immediately ushered in the Yakult Fuji Susono Plant reception area.

All of the Yakult Beautiens (Yakult's skin care line) product lines were displayed.

There are three main Yakult skin care lines: Parabio (Anti-Aging), Revecy White (Whitening), Revecy (Basic Skin Care). Everybody on the tour got to take home Yakult Parabio, but I'll tell you more about that in another post.

Magnum Cafe Manila closes this July 26, 2015!

Yes, this month is your last chance to try the luxurious ice cream creations which have invaded our dreams the past year because Magnum Cafe Manila's last day is already on July 26, 2015. It's not because of sales, because there's still a big demand for it. It's simply because Magnum Cafes all over the world are designed as temporary pop-up stores. In fact, Magnum Cafe in SM Aura was supposed to be open for only a year but it has already been extended by a couple of months. Instead of quietly closing its doors, Magnum Cafe Manila chooses to end its stint with a bang by coming up with five (5) new Magnum desserts for your dining pleasure.

Magnum Cafe SM Aura
Campfire S'Mores (P280)
First we have the Campfire S'Mores, a vanilla Magnum bar coated with freshly torched marshmallows sitting on top of a dark chocolate ganache and graham slab. It's a little too sweet for me since I'm not too fond of marshmallows.

Magnum Cafe SM Aura
Crepe De Jour (P380)
This is my favorite among the five introduced, Crepe Du Jour. It's comprised of layers of soft and chewy French crepes, light sweet cream, fresh in-season fruits (in this case mangoes and strawberries), and a milk-chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum bar.

Magnum Cafe SM Aura
Magnum Anniversary Cake (P350)
Next up was the Magnum Anniversary Cake complete with a candle! Thanks Ira for posing with it lol. Moist honey cake with cream cheese frosting and crunchy honeycomb bits serve as a base for a dark Belgian chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum bar.

Happy Skin Eye Am The One Mascara Review

I'm one of those who feel that a look is not complete without mascara. I don't know. Even if my lashes are already long and thick without any product, I still feel incomplete and unpolished without mascara.

Happy Skin Eye Am The One Holy Grail Mascara (P899)
So anyway, the newest mascara on my vanity table is Happy Skin Eye Am The One Holy Grail Mascara. I got it back during the summer months when they launched their Happy Skin Beauty in Bloom Collection.

Finally I got to actually test drive this product.

This mascara uses Happy Skin's Maximeyes two-fiber brush which lifts and separates lashes.
