Review: Skin Genie Natural Moisturizing Water Lotion

I've been religiously using organic shampoo and on-and-off organic soaps for years now but it's the first time I laid my hands on local organic lotion - a water lotion to be exact.

I've come to know Skin Genie Natural Moisturizing Water Lotion through BeautyMNL. It has some positive reviews so I got one hoping that it'll become a favorite since it is also organic and affordable too.

What Are Your Secrets to a Long Lasting Relationship With Your Loved One?

Every woman who are in a relationship, and even those who are still looking, have one thing in common - that the one they currently have, or the one they are going to find will be their "forever". But finding someone to spend the rest of your life with may not be very easy, more so keeping the relationship last.

Love, of course, is the biggest factor in every relationship. How can you be with the person when love don't exist? Or when love is one-sided? Love should be a mutual feeling for a relationship to last. But being in a long-term relationship and now happily married, I realized that love is NOT THE ONLY element for a long lasting relationship. Couples should have...

ACCEPTANCE AND RESPECT for each other. It is important for couples to accept and respect each others beliefs, choices and even your partner's pasts. It shouldn't cause a rift when your partner's opinion is different from yours nor can your partner force you to vote for Presidential Candidate A when you believe that Presidential Candidate B is the better choice. Also, respect is earned, not forced so be the best person you can be to earn not just your partner's respect but others' around you as well. Acceptance and respect are always associated with...

Ninja Van Experience

Online shopping can be a life-saver especially if you have no time to go to the mall or if you live in the province and the products you want or need are not available near you. And since you never have to spend for your transportation, snacks, etc., online shopping can save you money as well especially if you buy in bulk. I have been shopping online for years and just recently, I made a purchase from BeautyMNL for the very first time. I know the shopping site has been around for years but I only purchased now since I have finally found the products that I like and need.

I had great shopping experience with BeautyMNL - from scouting the products, filling my virtual shopping cart and paying. Additionally, I had great experience with the courier too - Ninja Van. It was the first time I heard about the said courier and I was kinda hesitant that they will deliver on time, or if they will deliver in my area at all since I had my order shipped to our house which is outside Iloilo City. I'm glad that they did and I couldn't be more satisfied.

Below, I outlined what I like and dislike about Ninja Van.


  • They deliver on time - not the fastest courier but they deliver within the time frame they promised.
  • Shipment is guaranteed safe and ensures that you receive your parcel. In the event that you are not available to receive your parcel, your authorized recipient needs to show the code the company provided via text message in order for the delivery man to release your parcel to that person.
  • The delivery man contacts you (through text message) before they deliver to your specified address.
