Review: Luxe Organix Aqua Daily Sunscreen

I've been hearing about Luxe Organix for a long time but only became interested recently after seeing the FB page of Senyora promote it. Yes, I've been following that page for years and the posts always make my day. Whoever is behind that page is a really smart and funny person.
Going back to the topic, Luxe Organix Aqua Daily Sunscreen is the latest sunscreen brand I have tried. I've been using it everyday for a little over a month so I think it's time that I do a review.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Luxe Organix Sunscreen is an aqua rich, lightweight, and water-resistant sunscreen provides broad spectrum protection with SPF 50 PA+++ for UVA and UVB. Its quick absorbing and non-greasy formulation makes it perfect for everyday use and even suitable for sensitive skin. Made with additional benefits of Aloe Vera extract to keep skin supple and hydrated throughout the day!


Review: Be Organic Probiotic Underarm Whitening Odor Control Deo Serum Spray

For years, I've been trying to find a reliable organic underarm protection but nothing seems to work for me. I stopped actively looking but keeps hoping that someday I'd be able to find "the one".

While ordering our organic hair care stash from Be Organic, I discovered that they released some products early this year. One of the new products is the deo-spray. Since we've been using Be Organic organic shampoos for years, I felt hopeful that this organic deodorant could work better than all the other brands I've tried before.

It contains a powerhouse of whitening and deodorizing plant extracts, along with lactobacillus ferment promoting friendly skin bacteria to fight skin problems. With consistent use, this deodorant:

  • Prevents chicken skin.

Gardening Story


For years, we've been trying our hands at organic gardening but we only got very little success because of the elevation of our lot. It used to be a rice field and would usually get submerged in water when it rains. However, our situation has greatly improved since we had it filled with soil almost a year ago. It took 20 dump trucks of earth to have it filled to the elevation we desire. It's not cheap but it's a necessary expense for us to secure our yard as well as our house. I feel truly guilty too as the method of acquiring the filling is not earth-friendly. We're just making up to the environment by planting more trees on our properties. On our home lot alone, we have planted more than 10 trees, several of them are native.


Homemade Sugar Wax Recipe


Waxing is my most favorite method to remove unwanted hair. Not only it is effective in removing those hair but I believe it also pulls out dead skin and helps smoothen it. I only use other methods, like epilating or plucking, when I ran out of my cold wax and has no way to get my hands on a reliable wax sooner. For years, I've been relying on store-bought cold wax because I didn't have the courage to make one for myself but since I promised to try to live sustainably and lessen my negative impact to the environment so making my beauty products at home is definitely a good idea.

This homemade sugar wax isn't the first one I tried making but this is the most successful and effective so I'm confident to share the recipe with others who are interested in making their own as well. It is actually very easy and doesn't take much effort.

So without further ado, here's the recipe...

Blogger Update

I can't believe how time flies by so fast. Half of 2020 is already gone! A lot has happened during the first half of the year but sometimes I feel like I also didn't do enough. Seems like time is fast but the actions aren't. Maybe because I wasn't able to accomplish what I supposedly accomplish based on the time frame I set. I haven't even updated this blog for more than eight months. There's just so much around that I barely have the opportunity to think about this hobby.

We needed to resolve several issues concerning our house construction, my husband went through surgery to remove his gallbladder, the expensive hospital expenses, the challenges of moving in to our new house, my own health scare, and the fear this Covid-19 brings. I've been paranoid since the first positive case in Iloilo and all I did was over think. There was even a time when I needed to work my ass off in the garden to divert my mind off the issue the world has been facing since the beginning of the year. It's exhausting especially during my husband's recovery period since I needed to be the runner of the family, the only person of the family authorized to leave the house during quarantine period.
