Benton Story

Definition of BENTON
β€˜Benton’ is inspired by and named after the movie β€˜The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’in which Benjamin Button grows younger with time. In the movie, Benjamin has no choice but to leave his love, Daisy as he becomes younger. What if Daisy also could turn back the time of her physical appearance? Wouldn’t she be happier?

It may be just a fictional movie, but wouldn’t most people have the same desire to be young again? Likewise Benton wishes to turn back the time of your skin with healthy cosmetics. Benton cosmetics are designed to restore your skin back to its original, youthful condition with healthy recipes, rather than to give temporary effects with harmful ingredients.

Style Korean X CosRx Try Me Review Me AC Collection Line

Style Korean X CosRx Try Me Review Me AC Collection Line

My first time to be picked by Style Korean for the Try Me Review Me event. I feel so Ecstatic cause this event is collaborated with the almighty brand CosRx, one of the first brands that I’ve used when I switched into Korean SkinCare which helped me heal my major breakouts immensely. The products just came in time since I’d experienced to have white bumps on cheek, nose & forehead due to bad reactions from cosmetics that I used recently.

–Oval shaped hydrocolloid patch which is suitable for covering several acne spots at once and for covering body acne(chestne,bacne). It has 3 different size patches can cover from small pimples, whiteheads, blackheads to cystic acne and also wound healing.
–Soothing and scar management with Centella Patch that not only helps the acne disappear without a scar, but also helps soothe and calm the spot.
–Strong adhesion patch. The border of the patch is thinner to strongly adhere to curved areassuch as jaw line and hair line.

DIRECTIONS
1.Cleanse the area around troubled spot. Use after an exfoliator or before the toner step.
2. Select a bigger size patch than the spot.
3. Attach the patch on dry skin.

Thoughts: It’s a perfect covering to heal breakouts. It’s more easy to peel off with new design that slit off to the middle compare to Acne pimple master patch(the old version). What’s more it is medicated with Centella to make it more effective. This should be applied after cleansing and before toner or skincare on.

Overall, I absolutely love this Coxrx Ac Collection Line. Cosrx did an splendid job in formulating CentellAC-RX Complex. Well deserved of an applause. Thank you Style Korean for the opportunity to learn, used and review this brilliant product from CosRx.Til then!

Mang Berto’s|Lechon Manok & Crispy Kawali—Angono Eats

Are you a fan of Silog Meals like me? If you do, theres a new eating place in my area that served this appetizing favorite dish of mine. I love Silog meals for it is very hearty and filling to the tummy.

They have variety of meals to offer not only silog meals ranging from light meals snacks like(noodles,pares,lugaw,goto,burger,fries) to appetizing Sisig meals!
We had Lechonsilog 70php (2 pcs crispy lechon manok with garlic fried rice top with egg) and short order of crispy kawali 60 php. Just added 2 fried rice. You may notice that they have huge servings(heap bowl of crispy kawali and fried rice which looks like 2 cups) . We we’re wronged to ordered two fried rice when we can only have one.
Lechonmanoksilog 70php
love their Crispy Lechon manok it taste like Max’s fried Chicken to me actually!
Crispy Kawali 60php
I enjoyed this so much. This is super crispy and crunchy like Chicharon(Fried pork rind)
YUMMM!

Overall I have a great experience to this newly opened food kiosk. Im very satisfied with the taste and it’s servings. Whenever I will think of Silog meals this is my go to place from now on. The place is just too small to accomodate lots of people, good thing it’s not jampacked when we visited. I hope they improved their place in the future. I’ll come back again to try other meals and update this post for their other food menu items that I love!

We had an awesome overnight staycation here before our early morning flight for Taiwan the next day. I love the artsy feel and vibe of the hotel design and structure. Can’t help not to take selfie and photos of the place. Very instagrammable!

 

Now Let’s take a look of our Room:

I love how their rooms were built. Great idea to put up Loft type Rooms like this,it really save up space.

They have pool amenities and mini bar at the rooftop that we enjoyed.

Menus:

The food we tried tasted great. We picked Mojos pika-pika and some beer for Bef and super goooood Baileys Pinacolada cocktail for me, perfect match while enjoying the night city view!

Definitely you should check this out because it is budget-friendly too. We got one night for only less than 1k. A must for Budget Travellers!Plus its near the airport(15 minutes away drive through Grab).
