What? Slimina Weight Loss Capsule
How much & Price? 30USD or 

Howdy, if you're reading this right now.... as of this moment.. it means this post was written a week earlier. LOL. I'll be reviewing Slimina Weight Loss Capsules because a lot of you are requesting to review this slimming pill. I remember it's one of my recommended pills because it's ingredients are simple and natural. I'll be featuring it's ingredients, effects, side-effects, and if it's effective. Since I've been super busy juggling work, blogging, family life, and love life. I decided to do what you call.. bulk beauty blogging. I edit photos one day, I write posts the next, then I schedule them on random days or whenever I feel like it. So that even if I'm busy, I still get to reach out and talk to you guys :)  Surprisingly, I feel more relaxed and comfortable writing here at home while my baby is sleeping. Okay, enough of the personal kwento and let's go straight to reviewing Slimina Weight Loss Capsules


  • Perilla Leaf Extract 80mg
  • Oriental Waterplaintain Rhixome Extract 50mg
  • Tuckahoe Extract 45mg
  • Cassia Seed Extract 35mg

Slimina Capsule - Green gel capsule

Slimina Before and After

My Thoughts

My mom and my aunt took this for quite a while. More than 6 months I think, and they did lose a significant amount of weight. My mom lost around 20lbs during that time, without any exercise. You really lose your appetite when taking this slimming pill, get thirsty, and sweat a lot. These might not be your typical slimming pill side-effect (oily poop, headache, diarrhea) but I still find these symptoms as side-effect.

I thikn what it does is make your heart rate faster. Faster heart rate equals faster metabolism. Faster metabolism = faster burning of fat. It also means your body needs to be hydrated at ALL TIMES. That's why this is not recommended for people who have heart problems or any sickness. It is also recommended to DRINK A LOT OF WATER and DON'T SKIP YOUR MEALS. *emphasize kung emphasize! push!*

I'm reviewing this but I'm not recommending a slimming capsule. Why? Because I still believe that the best way to lose weight and be sexy is a total lifestyle transformation. You don't need to deprive yourself of food, you don't need to workout everyday. You only need an active and balanced lifestyle. Eat when your hungry, stop when your full. Avoid snacking on sweets and salty food, and exercise at least 3x a week for an hour each. (More slimming tips on my #ProjectSexyProgram) 

I think those who needs to take this are people who are seriously obese. If you're just chubby, this can be resolved thru a healthy diet and exercise. Subscribing to a diet delivery of your choice can help you start!

I hope you enjoyed this review :) Let me know if you have any questions, I try my best to answer them as soon as I have the time!

As a blogger, some readers might think we go to every event or party that we get invited to. For someone like me, who really doesn't blog full-time believe it or not, there are some cases I'm not able to go because of the following reasons:

  • Venue is too far from where I live or where I work
  • Not within my schedule. I work on a 9-5 job *sob*
  • Not in my niche
  • PR who sent invite is very impolite. For my co-bloggers who are reading this, can you relate?

When I received an invitation to try the salon services of Creations by Lourd Ramos Salon, I was definitely pleased with how nice and personalized their invite was. *waves hands to Carthy* and told me they can accommodate my visit whenever I can. Their salon is located in Greenfields near Shaw Boulevard. Just right across Shangri-la Mall. It took more than a month before I got back to her and I really felt bad about it but thankfuly my tita gave me a ride there after my work. I'm so glad I made time! Their service rates and my experience below!

Creations Greenfield Salon by Lourd Ramos Price List

CND Shellac Gel Nail Polish

CND Shellac Gel Nail Polish Color Swatch

First up is their gel manicure using CND Shellac Gel Nail Polish

Compared to other brands of gel nail polish, CND Shellac dries fast in 7 minutes under UV light. It also feels a lot lighter. I remember the last time I tried gel polish 5 years ago and never did it again because it was heavy on the nails, took 2 hours for the manicure to finish and dry up, excessive buffing, and difficulty removing it. The nail technician didn't use any mechanical buffing on my nails and just swiped off their sort of nail cleaner.

Ta-da! I chose the color cocoa  and deep red. I like using 2 colors of nail polish, one main color and one highlight color. While I'm writing this, my nails are bare. But I'll go get another manicure tomorrow and put the highlight color on my middle finger so next time an arrogant person snobs me and acts all maldita. I can just show her my middle finger! :) 

While my nails are being treated, my hair were also pampered using Cynos Hair Repair Treatment. They offered to have my hair colored but I had to decline because I was headed out to Palawan the following day and don't want to risk my hair the extra damage from the sun and the sea. 

Combining these 2 hair treatments from Cynos, they guaranteed me extra protection for my hair! Cynos is a professional hair care brand from Canada and is used here at Creations Greenfield Salon by Lourd Ramos. My hair felt really soft and bouncy after the treatment session. It's perfect for my pre-beach trip because according to them, the Cynos hair treatment can protect my hair from sun and saltwater damage.

So if ever you're near the area, or even go out of the way like I did (worth it) do visit their salon if you want some R&R, it's not noisy compared to other salons so you're sure to get relaxed and de-stressed.

Thanks Creations Greenfield! Looking forward on my next visit!

This was my second time to be invited as a blogger friend of Sample Room. I'm not really part of the sample room family of bloggers, I'm just their nosy neighbor who's door they'd knock if they have celebrations or events such as this one! Hahaha~ way to go metaphor! The first one was the Sample Room launch of Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel

This time, it's with Shiseido! I just can't stress enough how I love Japanese makeup and skincare, compared to American Skincare. They formulate products made more for asian skin that's why it works better for our skin type. Japan also manufactures products with the best quality and luxury ingredients.

Doing my narcissistic signature hey-look-at-my-back pose! Thanks Christine for the shot (

Shiseido Brand Manager, the lovely Jen Jimenez briefs us on the latest in Shiseido Skincare and Cosmetics. The event was filled with Shiseido products you can try. I had too much fun listening to the talk and the demo that I forgot to shoot photos. Silly me! :)

This has got to be one of my funniest unboxing (for me at least). I came home from work, looking forward to surprises at home and look what greeted me that night! It's baby geof, oficially unboxing my BDJ Box for March containing loads and loads of Pond's Flawless White and Pond's White Beauty products. If you've been reading my blog long enough, you'll know that I've written several reviews on their facial wash, bb cream, creams, and even their dewy rose gel. Receiving this box only means one thing. MORE SUPPLIES! Woohoo!

For individual reviews, click the name of the product!

Pond's White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel - 155php
Their latest product. It smells heavenly and works like a dream.

Pond's Flawless White Brightening Night Cream - 340php
This one has a stronger niacinamide content versus their basic Pond's Flawless White Cream

Pond's Flawless White Dewy Rose Gel - 399php
My fave. I use this at night ala gel moisturizer/night mask. Full review on the link above you.

Pond's Flawless White Ultra Luminous Serum - 480php
It works to target dark spots. I read in other reviews that it doesn't work as a skin lightener but a targetted spot treatment.

Pond's Flawless White BB Cream in Light and Beige - 299php

My thoughts? Getting a BDJ Box is not even worth it. It's worth MORE than what you pay for. Slots run out fast so I suggest getting yours in months to come. They never disappoint and you get a bang for your buck. I mentioned in my previous post the reason why BDJ boxes come in cheap compared to purchasing the products separately in the mall. It's because companies want to promote their products so they offer it cheaper and in packaged sets such as this one.
