Yesterday when I was talking with Mom on Viber she told me she’s running out of facial toner and moisturizer and to bring it with me when I go home to Cebu this weekend. I said okay, I was really planning to drop by Healthy Options to replenish some products that I ran out of (the facial toner that she wanted is available only in Healthy Options).

Please take note that I went to Healthy Options for 2 things only. 2 things.

Here are the 2 items:

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Floral Toner (Mom’s toner)


and this product that I ran out of (which I need in my life)

Desert Essence Australian Tea Tree Oil

this is 1 product that I have to always have at all times. I use this for insect bites and if I have breakouts. But mostly for itchiness. You know when you are menopausing lahat makati! Especially at night. And this really helps me.

At this point, I should have stopped, went to the counter and check out. But not when you are sitting like this in front of the wall in Healthy Options. lol.

So basically, I went home with the following products that I don’t need but somehow I was able to convince myself that I need it in my life.

Derma E Essentials Illuminating Face Oil

This deeply hydrating facial oil is enriched with pure plant botanicals, essential oils, antioxidants and fatty acids to promote luminous, healthy-looking skin.

Brightening Rose Hip oil helps to restore tone, texture, and radiance while cranberry and organic pumpkin seed oils help to firm and tighten for a more youthful glow.

hmmm… I so need this. Who doesn’t need a firm, tight skin with youthful glow?


Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Advanced Antioxidant Moisturizer

I used almost everything in Derma E Anti-Wrinkle range. This I don’t have. I need this.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Detox Towelettes

I have been using the Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes for many years now but every now and then I use new ones that I see and fancy. Like this one. Cos volcanic clay. Hello.


All Good Lemongrass Body Lotion

I love the scent of lemongrass. The shampoo and conditioner I am using now (which I love) has lemongrass and I super love it.

Desert Essence Coconut and Body Lotion

You know me. Anything coconut.

Acure Dry Oil Body Spray

Marula+Argan+coconut? I need this too.

All Good Lip Balm


Alba Botanica Hawaiian Lip Balm

I have very, very dry lips. I need a lot of different kinds of lip balms.

So, there you are my quick Healthy Options run. lol.
