Shopback Earnings From My Althea Mini Haul

It feels so good to be back. How have you been so far? I have been uber busy with my life and a new job hence it took me almost a year to write a new post! Happy 2017! 😊

Anyway, I just like to share with you my recent purchase from Althea Korea. Mind you, while I was spending moolah by shopping, I still get cashback! How? With Shopback! To know how Shopback works, I have written a blog post about it HERE.

Shopback has partnered with a LOT of online shopping websites like Lazada, Zalora, Foodpanda, Expedia, Althea to name a few. So, why not take advantage of earning your cash back, right? Minimum amount to redeem your earnings is just P300 and so far I have cashed out twice already! (PayPal and bank transfer are the available methods)

So what's in my recent Althea haul where I earned around P50 cashback?

Nutri10 Plus Keeps My Kiddo Healthy and Strong

Aktibo't malakas with Nutri10 Plus
Now that my (not so) little Carl is in Kindergarten 2, I have to make sure that he gets all the nutrients needed to keep him healthy and strong. I have tried different multivitamins and while almost all of them are the same, one brand stood out for me- Nutri 10 Plus Multivitamins

This is packed with all the nutrients and vitamins that kids need everyday to make them strong, active and healthy; this for me is the best multivitamins in the market that I should give to my son.

So there's just pure-grade Sunflower Oil in there. Nice ^-^
And simple instructions too!

I recently suffered from breakouts when three, big, bad acne popped out on my jawline. Now being the ever impatient gal that I am, I applied Katialis on them (that's the Php20 anti-fungal cream you purchase from your suking botika, yes). Unfortunately, I overdid it resulting to some serious burn on my face. I was so dumb, I know but then I just had to accept the fact that this scar won't go away in days' time. I would have to wait it out before I can get a TCA peel on my face (which was the last of my options, really). But HHN Sunflower Beauty Oil helped a lot!

My skin, two weeks after using HHN Sunflower Beauty Oil.

The burnt marks were darker prior to using this oil. It was really gross I did not take a photo of it even if it was for this post. Kadiri talaga. It looked like I had a skin disease! Good thing, the Sunflower Beauty Oil lightened the marks and smoothened it as well.

 I guess I really have to consider minimizing the use of chemical-induced products on my face and start using more organic-based products. Don't you agree?  And apart from healing my scars, here are the other stuff I liked about it:
✔ Made my face softer and smoother
✔ Lightened my dark under eye circles
✔ It made the rough skin on my elbows softer and smoother
✔ Can be used to treat dry and chapped lips
✔ It's an effective hair serum/ polish as well
✔ An excellent makeup remover
✔ It's an oil but it doesn't feel sticky nor greasy

I would have loved to give this a perfect 10 but then its bottle hinders me because it's not spill-proof. I hope Human Heart Nature does something about it. The price may be a bargain at only P149 but still, sayang yung natatapon na oil. So it'll be a 9.50 for me.

Any thoughts on HHN Sunflower Beauty Oil? Can you also recommend other organic skin care product that I can try? Thanks for dropping by!
