Revlon Professional Hair Makeover

For someone who seldom visits a salon, a hair treatment and hair cut is really a big deal! It becomes even more amazing for Revlon Professional gave me a great hair pampering experience!


Revlon Professional had its Hair Makeover Event and I'm grateful I've got to experience this opportunity courtesy of Jeman V of OrangeMagazineTV!

Arrived at Signature Style in Pasig where several others are getting their hair makeovers too!

I'm scheduled for a Scalp Treatment and Haircut. But since I was told that my hair and scalp is healthy (not dry or oily), I was given a normal hair treatment instead.

They use Revlon Professional Pro You Shampoo to cleanse my hair before the treatment.

I didn't get a major makeover and there isn't a spectacular difference, but I could feel a great difference in my hair. I can feel the softness it brings to my hair. Thanks to Revlon's Pro You hair treatment!

+I love Revlon Orofluido on my hair!

Revlon Orofluido

Happy when the owner told me that a 5ml is included in the goody bag!

It's a hair elixir that contains 3 oils: Argan oil (liquid gold for your hair), Linseed oil (instant shine) and Cyperus oil (pure silk to the touch) Yes it's oil but it doesn't add weight or leave residues. It easily glides through my hair, it feels light and not sticky. Smells like light vanilla too. :)

+This is really cool and amazing!

using Revlon Professional Style Masters Photo Finisher Hairspray!
See how you can style your hair like this is a few minutes using Revlon Professional Style Masters Photo Finisher Hairspray. Her hair is upright but it is not stiff. And you can easily comb it and hair returns back after spreading a small amount of Revlon Professional Style Masters Reset Control. Her hair returns back to its natural state.

Works like magic! :)

Linggo ng Wika Costume and Activities

"Buwan ng Wika" had been a week-long event at my kid's school.

The entire week was filled with activities that encourages everyone to appreciate our Filipino language and culture - from Filipino clothes, food, games, songs and dances.

My son joined the preschoolers in their presentation. They happily sing Filipino folk songs on stage.

The boys wore their camisa de chino, red scarf and pants; while the little girls wore their Filipiniana costumes.


My daughter's class performed Subli, a traditional Philippine folkdance.



Other Philippine folkdances presented by students.
