Does Taking Gingko Biloba Makes you Anemic?

at 7/16/2018 0 comments
My boyfriend and I are currently taking up Gingko Biloba as memory enhancement while reviewing for the 2018 Bar Exam. Before taking them, I precautioned him not to take it daily like any multivitamins because it has blood thinning properties. Well, he's kinda hard headed sometimes and I'm about 90% sure that the dizziness he's experiencing right now was due to Ginkgo Biloba. I suspect that he's become anemic because there's an incident where he checked the mini refrigerator, he suddenly felt dizzy after standing up. I thought he was electrocuted that time but he said he felt really dizzy getting up. The second incident was when he was already asleep then felt the urge to pee around 12 midnight then suddenly he felt dizzy again due to getting up from the lying position. Right now, I advised him not to take the Gingko Biloba until he's all well again. In his case, he drank it every day like Vitamin C. It's a disaster, right? Well, it already happened. So, for all of you reading this post, do not drink Gingko Biloba every day and if you suffer from these illness listed here. 

Moreover, in my case, since I'm not taking it up every day. I only take it twice every week or depends upon my mood. It did give me a positive effect on my menstrual period. I have not experience dysmenorrhea (menstrual pain) for the month of June 2018 (started taking up Gingko). My menstrual period is incredibly heavy in flow unlike the following months. So, if you have monthly menstrual pain problems, you may try supplementing Gingko Biloba on your diet.

If you have a bad or good positive review about Gingko Biloba, don't hesitate to comment and share with us your experience on the comment box. I'll be happy to hear from you.

Hada Labo Hyaluron Moisturizing Lotion Blemished My Face

at 7/16/2018 0 comments
I just want to discourage everyone who have sensitive skin like mine not to use the Hada Labo moisturizing lotion (Hyaluron) 'coz it will cause acne breakout. Right now, I'm back to one again to heal my face from acne and from the inevitable dark spots left by the pimples. In just a matter of 3 days of using it, my face looks awful. Anyway, I have a combination skin type. The lotion made my face really oily though supple but that's it, it worsen my face problem. The moment I stopped using the moisturizing lotion, my face recover a little but still the dark spots are still there. I'm currently using peeling toners to get rid of the scars left. I hope it will help it vanish all the spots soon. This is such a sad sad day. :(

Note that the facial cleanser is working perfectly fine for me .


Elujai Propolis Myrrh Ample Review

at 4/30/2018 0 comments

I bought this product not knowing what does the word "propolis" means. Anyway, according to Wikipedia, Propolis or bee glue is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce by mixing saliva and beeswax with exudate gathered from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. It is used as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. 

Historically speaking, Egytpian Queen Cleopatra was known to use propolis in her beauty regimen to achieve a beautiful complexion. Accordingly, she discovered propolis because it was used during the process of embalming.

Hence, it is somewhat like honey. Well, I have tried the honey acne remedy before and it did make some wonder on my skin. So, I'll give this a go even if my boss told me that when he tried it, he seems to have not felt some good results nor negative effects.
does this bee propolis effective in fighting pimple acne breakouts?

At first application, it felt really light on my skin and it absorbs pretty fast by my skin (which is good). However, the downside is I can't use it all the time because it triggers my rhinitis because of its smell. Well, I Googled it and it (propolis) does cause allergic reactions because its a product of bees and it has a connection with flowers and pollens (like that). 

First week after using the propolis, it somewhat dried up my skin and less oily. However, tiny pimples are still breaking out even though my face is no longer oily. I don't understand why. So, I ended up not using it everyday. I guess it's also good to leave a little bit of natural shine on your face too. It's not all the time when your face is not oily, it means you're no longer prone to acne breakouts. 

Since, I'm not using it everyday, I only use it when it's necessary like days that I wanted to keep a non-oily skin. I also use it as a make up base when I like to go out with foundation on my face. It somewhat helps with the foundation I'm currently using like Dermacol because this foundation is somewhat oily after a couple of hours but I'm not using this propolis as a makeup base if I'm using matte foundations. 


No. It's just a waste of money because it's not really that effective at all. Maybe there are some other brands of bee propolis that are more effective than this. Well, it's up to you to buy this or not. I primarily bought this propolis to fight my pimple breakouts which didn't live up to its claim.


A lot of website claims that aside from its pimple fighting abilities, it's also great for oral health care, antibiotic, lowering blood pressure, treat vaginal infections, treat cold sores, and many more.


7 Tips On How Not To Get Pregnant

at 2/24/2018 0 comments
Prevent what can be prevented. If you're still thinking right, please don't follow your heart all the time girls. Protect yourself before it's too late. Raising kids takes a lot of work and dedication. Before you raise a kid of your own, better be sure you are ready. Don't let another human being suffer your mistakes. Yes, it's a mistake if you're not prepared to enter the motherhood realm. I've been doing this for 18 years old and I'm 31 now. No pregnancy occurred ever! 

Tip 1

Learn self-control. Say NO FIRMLY if you're on your fertile days. Do not have sex during your fertile days. 

So how will you know you're ovulating? There are many ways to learn if you're fertile or not but I'm not going to enumerate all of it here. My tested way is the calendar method and checking your cervical mucus' consistency.
Follow this chart and read this article to learn more about this method.

Tip 3

Use a condom during fertile days. No withdrawal method whatsoever. Use protection during these days. Suffer now or suffer later. Mind over heart first girls. Buy and bring your own condom wherever you go. No condom, no sex. Make it a firm rule. Do something productive aside from making babies. Maybe give him a blowjob if you're okay with that. Take control. Don't let him take control of you.

Tip 4

Eat lots of almost ripe papaya or unripe papaya. Do you know that papaya inhibits the semen immobilization? Let your boyfriend eat papaya seeds or secretly feed him papaya seed by adding it to his shake whatsoever. Papaya is a natural spermicide and that's a fact. Check the clinical study here.

Tip 5

Drink vitamin C regularly. There's a Russian study claiming that high doses of Ascorbic Acid appeared to increase estrogen levels which contributed to the interruption of an otherwise normal pregnancy. According to the study, they measure estrogen levels before and after treatment with ascorbic acid, finding that estrogen levels were higher after taking the ascorbic acid. Of the 20 women, 16 began menstrual-type bleeding within 1 to 3 days from administration of ascorbic acid. 

In my case, I've tried this method to help my menstruation early and it works! It came 3 or 4 days earlier than expected. However, stop drinking Vitamin C if you're pretty sure you are pregnant because it is known to be abortifacient. Also, individuals who have sensitive kidneys, kidney disease, kidney stones, or kidney problems of any kind, may want to avoid large amounts of Vitamin C. High doses of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) may cause the formation of kidney stones.

Tip 6

Drink Hibiscus flower otherwise known as Gumamela as tea. Hibiscus is a kind of emmenagogue or a substance that stimulates or increases menstrual flow or a menstrual stimulus. If you are suffering from menstrual pain commonly known as dysmenorrhea, you may drink this herbal concoction to alleviate your pain.

Due to its emmenagogue effects,  I discourage pregnant women from taking hibiscus drink to avoid complications.To learn more about emmenagogues, check out this page.

Tip 7

Drink contraceptive pills or get an IUD. There's even a new kind of contraception introduced here in the Philippines but this has been long introduced in western countries. My officemate is currently using birth control implant called the Implanon or Nexplanon. It's very discreet and you'll not get pregnant for about 3 years. A flexible plastic matchstick is implanted in your arm by adoctor or a certified nurse. However, as any birth control method, some women have a bad reaction to the implant. I guess it's better to ask your doctor about this kind of birth control first plus it does not come cheap. The cost of getting a birth control implant is about 3000 to 5000 pesos up.

I have not tried Implanon yet but I've tried taking up birth control pills and have stopped it since I suffered weight gain and adult acne. My doctor prescribed to me Dianne 35 pills and I took it for 2 years and after that I realized, I will never go back to pills again. It has lots of side effects but one thing for sure you will not get pregnant.

Goree Cream and Soap Review: Can It Effectively Vanish Your Acne and Dark Spots?

at 2/17/2018 0 comments
Hello, there my dear readers. Today is the day that the Lord has made. :P I'm not kidding! The good news is finally at hand. I have found my holy grail in the beauty product category. :P For those of you who have no idea about my problem, I'm suffering from adult and hormonal acne when I was about 25 years old. During my puberty days, I have no problem with my face. If you thought having acne and pimples will only last during your teenage days, you're wrong 'coz mine is the reversed.

I have posted 5 years ago about how I first got rid of my adult acne but as the time comes, this regimen of mine no longer works for me and the products are difficult to find and some of the products I've mentioned in that blog post is phase out. Hence, in desperate times like this, I need to find an alternative to effectively get rid of my acne and it's dark remnants away from my face.

I've learned about this cream and soap while browsing Shopee and through google research. Before I test a product, I need to study it first because I'm afraid of using untested products. I've seen a blog somewhere that her super dark underarm turns white and as I've read it, the blogger made me buy this product I'm talking to you right now because the result is astounding to the point of my jaw dropped from the amazing result. Ok, here it is! This is it girls...this is it! Buy this product now, for heaven's sake, just do it! Lolz!

Beware of fake Goree products. I bought this set for 350 pesos. How to spot a fake Goree? Check below this post.

My first day of using Goree cream and soap with 30 spf sunscreen protection.

Thank God! No more recurring pimples even if I sleep at 4 in the morning because I'm very busy briefing cases.
Finally, Day 22, I have one acne spot on my chin because I'm on my period at this moment.
I have slept around 2 am consecutively this week and no recurring pimples so far.

I have a problem with my recurring pimples and my cystic hormonal acne. Because of this, it's difficult to recover. I usually prick them off because it feels so itchy and bumpy. Since using this product, my skin becomes poreless and less oily.
I have noticed that the consistency of the cream is not so creamy at all. At first, I'm very hesitant that maybe I've bought a fake Goree but that is just how it feels. Just apply a thin layer of the cream to your face while massaging it. 

In the morning, you will notice immediately that your skin becomes poreless and a little bit shiny. I think that is the effect of the lycopene and the avocado extract while the aloe vera extract heals the redness of your pimples or acne. 

As early as day 3, you will feel the difference and result of the cream while the product claims that result will be visible on the 7th day. I guess, it differs from your skin type. 

As to the soap, I also doubt at first that this soap might irritate my skin because it smells so fragrant and I have an issue with scented soaps because it usually irritates my skin but this soap did not. It glides beautifully on my face and it moisturizes my skin after it dries.

Other products give you ugly peeled off skin and the stingy feel. Goree does not have this effect on your skin. No peeling and stingy feel. Well, there's a micro-peel off during my 20th day of using it but that just it. It's astonishing AF! 

Moreover, while using Goree, there is also a secret food supplement I'm currently taking. Well, it's not really a secret because there's already a study about this specific kind of supplement to include in your beauty regimen if you have acne prone skin. Please do include ZINC on your diet. According to scientific research, people with acne have lower levels of zinc than people with clear skin, and that supplementing can reduce acne by 50%. 

According to this siteZinc has been shown to reduce almost all the known causes of acne:
  • Test tube studies show zinc kills acne causing bacteria. It’s not as effective as antibiotics, but it can still be useful. Furthermore, bacteria won’t develop resistance to zinc, so it works even for people who have antibiotic-resistant bacteria on the skin.
  • Zinc reduces inflammatory response to bacteria. When bacteria invade a blocked pore they can cause severe irritation in the area, this is one reason pimples turn red and painful. Studies have shown that acne-prone skin reacts far more strongly to bacteria than normal skin. Zinc can temper this inflammatory response and reduce the effect bacteria have on the skin.
  • Zinc reduces keratinocyte activation. Keratinocytes are cells that produce keratin, a tough protein that binds skin cells together. Too much keratin prevents cells from separating and leads to blocked pores, as is the case in acne. By reducing keratin zinc helps to keep skin pores open.
  • Zinc is a DHT blocker, meaning it reduces the effect hormones have on the skin. Other DHT blockers have been shown to reduce the amount of oil (sebum) the skin produces. Unfortunately, zinc is not a very strong DHT blocker, but every little bit helps – right?.
  • Zinc is a powerful antioxidant. Inflammatory damage to sebum is one of the root causes of acne and some studies show taking antioxidants can reduce acne.
In my case, It's been a month now that I have included zinc in my daily diet and as early as 1 week, I have no more acne appearing on my face (which is every day in my case. ) Even if I sleep at 5 in the morning consecutively, no pimples appeared on my face. Even if I eat unhealthy foods, still no pimples. Amazing right? Amazing is not even the word for it! It's a miracle! Where have this study been all of my life? This is truly heaven sent. Thank you science. :) 

Therefore, using Goree cream + taking zinc supplement everyday vanished all my face problem. Thank you, Lord, for giving me the knowledge and the chance to know these products. I'm not really the religious type but I still believe in divine interventions. Thank you for answering my prayers despite my faults.


I took this photo without filters and in natural light for you to distinguish if your Goree cream is a sham or a genuine.

  • The box has a shiny feel (holographic type) with the "Goree" text having been embossed.
  • There is also a round shape, metallic gold and blue letter G above the Goree text.
  • There is also an expiration and manufacturing date at the bottom of the box (digitally printed in black)
  • At both sides of the box, it has a printed silver colored "H Pharmacy" embedded into the box in a holographic text slantedly placed 7 times.
  • On its box, there is also a print that it's printed by SPOTLIT PRINTERS PRIVATE LTD. 
  • On opened sides, both of them have the same serial numbers.(14 numbers)
  • A small magazine like paper is also included inside the box showcasing other Goree product line.
  • Both sides of the box have an English and Arabic language text printed.
  • Holographic diagonal lines is visible 7x in every sides of the box.
  • The white plastic have an embossed "GOREE beauty cream" on it.
  • At the back of the white container, there is also an embossed written text "A product of H.Pharmacy Lahore-Pakistan"
  • Beware of the recalled Goree WHITENING CREAM. This is the fake one. The authentic is named as Goree BEAUTY CREAM. Check it out here!!!
  • I have tested the cream using GOLD also and mine didn't turned black. If you rub the cream with gold then it turns black or dark, then your Goree cream contains mercury. 

  • The box is matted with a silver colored printed flower that looks like an orchid embedded to the box.
  • An embossed color blue "Goree" text with a gold letter G logo above 
  • Upon opening the box, it also comes with printed color black serial number consist of 14 numbers. 
  • On the opposite side of each box comes with the English and Arabic translation of the product.
  • An expiration and manufacturing date is also printed outside corner of the box.
  • The soap is packed in a transparent peel off plastic inside
  • The soap itself has a logo too
  • The soap smells like orchid with a hint of rose. 

  • Wash your face with Goree soap. It is a must that you use the soap because it is a great combination with the cream.
  • After drying your face, just apply the cream thinly on your face.
  • You may use your favorite toner as well before applying the cream.
  • I only use toner if I wore makeup in the morning to take away all the dirt away from my skin.
  • In the morning, just wash your face with Goree soap again then apply the Goree cream again before wearing make-up. It's so easy. No hassle. No tiis ganda moment. No stingy feel. No peeling. Unbelievable right? 
  • During my period days, I usually get an acne , I use QuickFX Pimple Eraser cream at the acne spot then apply Goree cream later on.
  • I always drink my zinc supplement after meal because it must be taken after a meal. In my case, I always forget to drink it in the morning. That's why I drink it before I go to bed. Thus, I always eat my dinner or I eat something before going to bed. 


Shoppee and Lazada no longer sell this product because of alleged mercury content. The FDA report was posted on the year 2013. H Pharmacy recalled all their products after that. However, this newly packed Goree with "Beauty Cream" indicated is said to be the authentic product. Still, it is better for us to discontinue using this product until FDA lifted its ban. For now, stick on the zinc supplement and the QuickFX Pimple Eraser.
