From disposable shavers (which I guiltily use 3 - 5 times before disposal) to a more heavy duty one which requires replacing its head every month, I'm proud to say that I made the final upgrade to the Philips AquaTouch Wet & Dry Electric Shaver.

The Philips AquaTouch Wet & Dry Electric Shaver is one of the brand's latest cutting-edge shavers that delivers the closest shave yet, without compromising on comfort, control, and choice. With the Aquatic Wet & Dry seal, you can either use it for a quick yet comfortable dry shave or simply bring it in the shower.

For the closest shave, I recommend using it wet. That is, with a shaving gel or foam. I somehow mastered the art of using it after my fourth try.

Here's a tip: Do not rush when shaving with the Philips AquaTouch Wet & Dry Electric Shave. Savor the moment.

Use it with a steady hand in a slow, circular motion. No need to twist your face to get to the hard areas to shave like the neck and jaw line (and even the corners of your mouth) because of the 5-direction Flex Heads with 5 independent movements that ensure close skin contact for a fast and close shave. And with its ComfortCut blades with rounded profile heads, you are protected from nicks and cuts as it glide smoothly on your skin.

The Philips AquaTouch Wet & Dry Electric Shaver is not just about having that closest shave. It also comes with a click-on trimmer to maintain your mustache and trimming your sideburns.

This shaver only operates in cordless mode. You only need to charge it for an hour for 40+ minutes of running time or about 13 shaves. The charger comes free, of course.

All of Philips shavers come with a 2-year worldwide guarantee and can adapt to any voltage. The best part? You only need to replace the blades after 2 years. Talk about long-lasting!

For every decent grown-up men, I highly recommend in including the Philips AquaTouch Wet & Dry Electric Shaver in his everyday grooming arsenal. It's that good.

Watsons' "Time To Renew" campaign speaks to me on a personal level because it basically talks about restoring the beauty of your skin and hair and recharging your health. All three of these concerns took a dive for the worse earlier this year for me due to some health reasons which got me hospitalized for more than a month. I started losing hair, I always felt weak, and I was obviously sick which was very evident on the quality of my skin.

I was hopeless. Or so, I thought.

Fast-forward to a couple of months after that incident, I started to regain my strength back albeit slowly. The next steps would be targeting my skin and hair. Watsons' "Time To Renew" campaign is literally helping me get back on track.

I was fortunate enough to get to understand the campaign more last August 22 at The Podium when Watsons launched the campaign.

The highlight for me, and unexpectedly so, were the celebrities who graced the event making it a star-studded celebration.

It's been a while since I last smiled like this. Well, not since I lost a big chunk of hair around my forehead after my month-long hospitalization late last year. I assumed that it was because of all the medicines I was taking back then (8-10 on a daily basis). Good thing the hair loss was only temporary and I happily managed to grow it back with the help of a hair product line which I'm gonna tell you more about in a bit.

I realized (on top of my other realizations) that I'm not yet ready to lose my hair. I looked old and it didn't help my self-esteem. That's why I'm taking all precautionary measures to take care of my hair and maintain it as long as possible. One of those is having the Scalp Microdermabrasion, the flagship service of the Bosley Professional Strength (Bosley Pro) Hair and Scalp Care Services, at Razor Sports.

Of course, it has to start with a good haircut.

It's that time of the year once again which I and my brothers also call our bonding time -TOYCON! But unlike the previous conventions which featured mostly toys and the opportunity to grow your collections, cosplayers, gamers, etc., 2017's TOYCON is nothing short of the usual as they partnered with Pop Life Entertainment to create the ultimate Fan experience for the Filipino pop-culture fans once again.

This year the TOYCON POP LIFE FANXPERIENCE 2017 takes it up a notch higher and promises bigger entertainment and a whole new playground for the digital generation.

Aside from seeing Liza Soberano, here are some of the event highlights which I'm excited about for this year's Toycon Pop Life FanXperience:

I know I've seen a video of these two brands showcasing their competitive spirits against each other online and my initial reaction was, "Wow! the efforts of these brands are just amazing!" It was funny (and cute at the same time) and I can't help but feel proud as a consumer that they're doing it all to promote their respective brands. At least I know the money I'll be spending on their phones will not just go for the actual phone itself but also, for their promotions. And to think both smartphone brands are not that expensive! I really have big respect for brands who advertise.

Let's put the spotlight on the Vivo V5s.

The new Vivo V5s trumps its competitors within the same price range in terms of photo quality and camera specifications, improved selfie tools, and new features like the Groufie or Group Selfie technology.
With a slew of smartphone brands vying for the patronage of tech-savvy Filipinos and inveterate selfie enthusiasts, top five premium global brand1 Vivo has sprinted past the competition with its “perfect selfie” V5 line, the latest of which is the Vivo V5s. Priced at only P14,990 but loaded with features that are not found in its competitors, the V5s is turning out to be the best smartphone deal vis-à-vis other brands in the same price range.
