Downy Hypoallergenic, a Gentle Fab Con for the Family

May 29, 2020 74 Comments

Aside from the fabric itself, the product we use to wash our clothes and linens may cause allergic reaction to sensitive skin. That’s why I am extra careful when it comes to caring for personal items used by my family. I used to refrain from using fabric conditioner for fear that the chemicals it contain might be too harsh for the sensitive skin of my family members.

I’m really glad that I learned from social media about Downy Hypoallergenic. Initially, I tried it on my children’s clothes. I’m really happy that my kids didn’t experience any skin irritation or allergic reaction after that. Finally, I found a gentle fab con that I can use to soften and freshen my kids’ clothes without me worrying about my children’s skin.


Downy Hypoallergenic is dermatologically tested with 0% dyes and preservatives. It is really formulated for sensitive skin. This hypoallergenic fab con is safe not just for kids but even for adults with sensitive skin. So I now use it for washing my husband’s clothes, my favorite dresses, our towels, and even the bedsheets. 


What I love about it is, despite having no added harmful substances, Downy Hypoallergenic leaves a long-lasting mild scent on our clothes and linens. It makes clothes smelling fresh after every wash. Plus, it effectively conditions the fabric. Aside from softening clothes, Downy Hypoallergenic protects our clothes from stretching and fading.

Downy Hypoallergenic is definitely a must-have in every household. It’s the fab con that homemakers like me need to keep our clothes and linens soft and safe for the whole family.

Stay Safe, Healthy and Strong: Immunity Tips for Your Family

May 28, 2020 2 Comments

2020 will be remembered as the year that changed our perception of health. Our global health situation has affected us critically, and required us all to make well-being a top priority. As a mom, I put utmost importance not only for my personal well-being but most especially for the health of my family.

As we now turn our attention towards making good health a new way of life, I am so happy to be able to have access to Watsons, a store that has been very dependable during this challenging time. 



Here are a few recommendations that you can do at home to help keep your immunity strong and your family healthy.

BE ACTIVE: Dance Zumba with your kids as a bonding activity and a form of exercise.
Exercising has many known benefits such as helping us get fit, improving our mood, to even helping boost the health of our internal organs. But did you know that staying active helps strengthen our immunity system too? Make sure to allot time for exercise even for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour at least 4 times a week. Go for exercises you can do with a group like dance or cardio workouts. 

EAT RIGHT: Make sure to put Go, Glow and Grow food on your plate.
A big factor that can spell the change in strengthening your family’s immunity is watching what you eat. There are plenty of immunity-boosting foods that you can incorporate easily into your daily recipes, from healthy vegetables such as carrots and broccoli, to flavorful spices like garlic and ginger. 

GET QUALITY SLEEP: Sleep when the sun is down. Wake up when the sun rises.
Did you know that getting proper sleep helps increase our defense against sickness? Now that we have more time on our hands, we can sometimes easily sacrifice rest for activities such as binge-watching or staying on up our gadgets late at night. To help avoid this, make sure to set a proper time for sleeping. Manage the household’s schedule and make room for most of your activities in the morning, so the family can sleep soundly come nighttime.

TAKE VITAMINS REGULARLY: Keep your immunity strong and your body healthy.
With our situation now, some natural sources of vitamins may be hard to come by. With trips to the grocery stores becoming more challenging, know that you can also count on taking vitamins to strengthen your family’s immunity. 

KEEP ESSENTIALS AT HAND: Fill your medicine kit and COVID19 preparedness kit.
Preparedness is key to protection, so make sure you have your health essentials to help your home stay ready for anytime sickness may strike.

Need to stock-up on health essentials, visit any of the Watsons stores nationwide. For your convenience and safety, you can also order online at watsons.com.ph or call on select branches to have your orders delivered.

Keeping my Family Germ-protected Using Downy Antibac + a GIVEAWAY

May 25, 2020 60 Comments

Thoroughly washing our hands with soap to eliminate germs is one of the unforgettable lessons we’ve learned from this pandemic. If only we can also apply the same protection when it comes to our very own clothes, we can protect our family from germs that cause musty odor and infections.

Washing clothes with detergent alone is not enough. Sometimes, clothes still smell awful even after washing because there are unseen germs left. Science tells us that we need to dry clothes under the sun to effectively get rid of germs, but just like other moms, it’s a challenge for me to dry clothes under the sun because of space limitations and the unpredictable weather in our country.

In search of a way to thoroughly disinfect clothes, I found out on social media about Downy Antibac. I used to think that Downy is just useful for softening clothes, but this new Downy product promises to also eliminate germs. Since I was curious if it could really help get rid of odor-causing germs, I decided to give it a try.

It’s the first time I’ve used a fab con that can give maximum germ protection. From the makers of Safeguard, Downy Antibac can kill 99.9% odor-causing germs on our clothes. It contains ingredients that prevent the growth of germs and minimize bacteria population, which causes bad smell on clothes.

Though I don’t see if there are really no germs left on the clothes, I’m satisfied that the clothes have no nasty smell which usually comes from germ buildup. Our clothes really smell fresh and clean.


Just like frequent washing of hands using soap, using Downy Antibac with the power of Safeguard in washing my family’s clothes gives me peace of mind. That’s why I recommend it to other moms and homemakers. Even when it comes to washing clothes, let’s use a product that can keep our families always germ-protected especially during this pandemic.



As this new normal made me to multitask more than ever: juggling work tasks, house chores and family duties. The happiness, health and safety of my family always comes first. To ensure this, I take precautionary measures to keep them away from being exposed to germs most especially the ones that can stay on clothes by using #DownyAntibac fab con.


Downy Antibac is available in leading grocery stores nationwide. You can choose from different sizes, depending on your budget — 25mL (Php 5.00.), 40mL (Php 7.50), 69mL (Php 12.75), 680mL (Php 122.00), and 1450mL (Php 255.00).

Keeping Clothes Soft and Safe for my Kids with Downy Hypoallergenic and a GIVEAWAY

May 23, 2020 52 Comments

I used to think that using fabric conditioner for my kids’ clothes is a big no-no. While I really wanted to try it to freshen and soften clothes, I was hesitant because I know that fab con is very allergenic. It contains chemicals that might be too harsh for children’s sensitive skin.

Good thing I discovered Downy Hypoallergenic through social media. The word “hypoallergenic” in this new Downy variant gave me hope. Finally, here’s a gentle fabric conditioner that can do wonders for my kids’ clothes without irritating my little ones’ skin!

Since I was really curious if this Downy is indeed “hypoallergenic”, I decided to give it a try. I used it for my girls’ clothes, towels, blankets and bedsheets.

What I like best about Downy Hypoallergenic is that it’s dermatologically tested with 0% dyes and preservatives. This stops me from worrying about chemicals that might trigger allergic reaction on my kids. But despite having no added harmful substances, it’s amazing that Downy Hypoallergenic leaves a mild scent on clothes, making them smelling fresh after every wash.


After using Downy Hypoallergenic, I’m happy that my girls haven’t had any allergic reaction to their clothes, towels and bedding. Aside from keeping my kids safe from allergens, Downy Hypoallergenic does a great job in protecting the clothes of my girls. Just like our other trusted Downy products, Downy Hypoallergenic is really effective in conditioning the fabric. It maintains the original shape of clothes and reduces color fading.

Another great news is Downy Hypoallergenic won’t hurt our household budget. You can choose from different sizes, depending on your budget — 23mL (Php 5.00.), 36mL (Php 7.50), 690mL (Php 139.00), 1380mL (Php 275.00), and 800mL (Php 187.00). It is available in leading supermarkets nationwide and in Lazada.

I definitely recommend using Downy Hypoallergenic to my fellow moms and homemakers. It’s the fab con that we need to keep clothes soft and safe for the little ones.

Meet Botbot, our Robot Vacuum Cleaner + a #GIVEAWAY

May 05, 2020 36 Comments

With so much on our plate, we moms really need all the help we can get. Many of us wish for a helper who can do some of the household chores so we can have more time for the family or for ourselves. Sadly, not everyone has the luxury of having a trusted helper nowadays.

Here’s good news! There’s a robot willing to help clean our homes anytime of the day. Meet Botbot, a smart and easy-to-use robot vacuum cleaner from Monarc Ph which is perfect for us multi-tasking parents. It may seem like a dream, but it’s real. I’ve actually tried it myself.


2-in-1 Cleaning
Vacuuming and mopping are two exhausting household tasks I wish to escape. These are not only physically tiring but also time-consuming. Thanks to Botbot for ticking these tasks off my list!


Botbot is smart enough to switch among various cleaning modes to meet different cleaning requirements. The best part is that it effectively vacuums and mops away dirt, hair, crumbs, and dust.


With little children in the house, it’s really a challenge for me to get rid of crumbs scattered on the floor. So I really appreciate having Botbot around.

Plus, you don’t have to worry about this happy helper’s schedule. Just set a cleaning schedule and it will clean automatically at your preferred time. No ifs, no buts!


Cleans hard-to-reach parts of the house 
Botbot boasts of a slim body design with smart sensor that allows it to easily navigate through small spaces without getting stuck. If I find it difficult to remove dust and dirt under the bed and sofa, Botbot can clean these hard-to-reach areas without a sweat. The lowest height it can pass under is 75mm. It also effortlessly moves on carpets, door ledges and different floor types.


Rechargeable cleaner
Of course, Botbot gets tired too. While it can clean up for as long as 100 minutes per charge, super Botbot will automatically return to the charging dock to recharge. It only takes 4-5 hours for Botbot to be back to its 100% super power.



Won’t bump hard on obstacles
At first, I was worried about little accidents that Botbot may encounter inside our home. What if Botbot hits our furniture? What if it hits my toddler’s foot? Then I noticed that Botbot slows down whenever it senses an obstacle on its way. Its smart sensor detects obstacles and prompts it to slow down and touch objects as gently as possible. Its sensor also prevents Botbot from encountering steep drops down stairs or ledges.


This robot cleaner is a home appliance that’s worth buying. It saves me a lot of time and energy. Let’s leave the cleaning to Botbot so we can spend more quality time with our family and do more of what we love.

If you want your very own Botbot, you may get one from Monarc through this link https://www.monarc.ph/products/botbot-robot-vacuum

Joy Baby Dishwashing Liquid: Made for Babies. Approved by Moms. Recommended by Pediatricians. + a GIVEWAY!!!

May 03, 2020 17 Comments

I tried to make the most of the enhanced community quarantine by teaching my 4 year old Bella to do some house chores. I taught her how to wash the dishes and involved her in washing her own utensils, her sister’s feeding bottles and some toys.

To start with our dishwashing 101, I introduced first the different cleaning tools and aids such as the bottle cleaner, sponge and Joy Baby dishwashing liquid which I also recently discovered.


I explained that for her and her sister’s feeding and drinking utensils, we will only use, Joy Baby from now on, as it is a dishwashing liquid that is 100% safe for babies since it is free from harmful chemicals specifically parabens. It is even pediatrician approved so it really is guaranteed safe for use of babies and kids.


Immediately, my daughter noticed that the Joy Baby did not have any artificial coloring at it comes in clear liquid form.

We then opened the Joy Baby bottle and let her smell it. It has no heavy perfume. My daughter said that it smells so mild. She actually enjoyed sniffing it.


Then I told my daughter that we should only put one drop of Joy Baby in the sponge. With just one drop, it already filled the sponge with bubbles. We then went on washing and rinsing the utensils we she enjoyed so much. 

Our Joy Baby Experience

Here’s what we discovered after using the new Joy Baby:

1. One drop is all you need. It actually suds fast and creates a lot of bubbles. It only requires just one drop to clean several feeding and drinking utensils. 

I like this so much because all the other dishwashing liquid for babies that I tried would actually require several drops. It will really help me save a lot of money since a Joy Baby bottle will last longer.


2. No scent left behind. You can neither smell the milk nor the Joy Baby dishwashing liquid anymore after washing and sterilizing. You won’t get to smell nor taste the dishwashing liquid when you use the utensils. 

This is very important for me as my children are very sensitive towards the smell of the dishwashing liquid. They would not want to use their utensils most especially their drinking bottles and cups that have the smell of soap.  


3. Squeaky-clean all the way. It leaves the utensils squeaky-clean after washing. You can see and feel that there is no residue of milk nor oil left on the utensils. 

I used to repeat washing the feeding bottles and utensils as it has a tendency to be greasy and oily even after washing. But with Joy Baby, the utensils do not have any greasy feel nor residue left after just one wash.


And because Joy Baby is so gentle and safe, it can also be used to wash fruits and vegetables. I just put one drop in a bowl of water and let it bubble. Then I put the fruits and vegetable there before rinsing with water. 


So if you are a mom like me, I highly recommend that you try out the new Joy Baby now! You may buy it online in Lazada and Shopee or in leading supermarkets nationwide. 
A 495ml bottle is just Php139.
