Trends For Beauty and Cosmetics

Our favorite!
But of course, we’re not talking Lancome, M.A.C, or Dior here….and with good reason!
Not only are these giants highly overpriced and underperforming…but there’s also many questions and muddy waters on who exactly still tests on animals.
That’s why it’s better for your wallet, your skin, and your conscience to check out these amazing little-known brands.

 

 

lush-2

The King of Cosmetics and fresh bath and beauty products is without a doubt, Lush.
Not only are their products 100% natural, organic, vegetarian, and packed with amazing flowers, oils and herbs…but they’ve been fighting animal testing for thirty years, and have an Ethical Buying Team to find fair trade and sustainable sources for their ingredients.

That means their Vanilla Absolute from Uganda helps Mubuku farmers get the best prices and profits for their products….Their cocoa beans come from Colombia and supports a group quietly resisting political violence in the region……Their argan oil comes from Morocco, has stimulated the local economy and given local women a sustainable job.

Lush is committed to fresh handmade products, sustainable business practices, low-or-no packaging, and giving back to the communities they work with.

Anyway, back to the products!
There is so much to choose from, you have to see it all yourself…body butters, oil-free hand lotions, aluminum-free deodorants, soaps that smell so tasty that its hard not to eat them….spend a day just browsing and reading all the awesome goodies they have!
They also have a range of products exclusively for men, like the ‘Guv’ner’ deoderant, and the best shaving cream you can buy, ‘Razorantium’

For cosmetics, they have a fairly new line of color for lips, eyes, and skin.

Some of our favorites are the ‘Feeling Younger Skin Tint’, that reflects light and makes you look bright and shiny all day, the FIVE GRAM mascara t03533ube, ‘Eyes Right’ that contains wheatgrass for strengthening and smoothing your lashes, and japan wax, for extremely long day-use and no flakes or crumblies.
This stuff doesn’t go anywhere, and best of all it doesn’t hurt your eyes, like other chemical mascaras.

Visit their website Here, but be prepared to browse for days!

Similar to Lush, but much more simple is Nude Bath Products.

Still a growing local company, owner Karen Murdock offers a fresh, clean product line that includes lip balms, facial masks, scrubs, soaks and soaps. Visit their Facebook page Here, and tell them we sent you!

Staff Parties – More Fun In The Philippines!

Good Afternoon, from White Chocolate Hills Resort!

We had lots of delicious BBQ Pork, Chicken, rice, bread and mango…and we got pictures!

Our Awesome Staff!

From Left to Right:
Rosalyn, Jaid, Niecel, Anna, Bea, Londing, Jai Jai, Rod, Doming & Joker!

Our Awesome Staff


What a great-looking group of people!

It was an awesome night…lots of jokes & laughing… Anna & Niecel gave an impromptu concert with coke-bottle guitars and rice-container drums, singing silly songs about living in the mountains and going to church, complete with wild, dramatic dance moves….it was definitely a sight to see!

Pork...So Good.


Our Delicious Barbecued Pork!

After eating, everyone played in the ocean, sat around talking, and just hung out for a while before cleaning up and heading home, or to bed….It was super fun!

A Special Thank You to the owners of White Chocolate Hills Resort for giving their staff a fun barbecue night!
Everyone really enjoyed themselves, and went to sleep with full tummies!

Speaking of full, thanks to our awesome maintenance crew, our pool was drained, fully cleaned and refilled in just one day!
That means we’re back once again with the cleanest pool in Zamboanguita, ready for you to bring your swim gear & your friends to our wonderful little resort beside the sea.

We got a few pictures of the empty pool…you can really get a feel for how big our pool really is when it’s empty!

Virtue In Work And Virtue In Rest… Use Both, Overlook Neither

Good Morning, from your friends at White Chocolate Hills Resort!

We hope you had a relaxing, safe holiday weekend!
This weekend at the resort was very busy, but also very fun…everyone smiling and having a great time, relaxing and letting their stress melt away.

Today’s blog post is just a quick update, some inspiration, and a little bit of humor for fun!

We know many businesses like to treat their workers with working vacations, and White Chocolate Hills Resort is one of the best resorts you can find to cater to your employees.

Our resort is quiet, private, and ideal for productive inspiration….
Our landscape is pleasing to the eyes & imagination, soft, windy breezes rejuvenate the spirit, and the ocean’s gentle heartbeat can be heard in the distance, soothing the mind.

The rooms at White Chocolate Hills feature state of the art Plasma Ionic Air Conditioning…completely silent and excellent for your health…research shows that our air conditioning units eliminate up to 99.9% of serious airborne diseases like SARS & Influenza A.
We have an in-room safe for valuable items, a mini-bar in case you get thirsty and don’t feel like sitting at the outdoor bar, Hot & Cold modern shower for your total relaxation & comfort, Free & fast WiFi connection at the bar area, and of course, our giant pool & beachfront area in case you want to unwind and spend time away from the computer for a while.

Not to mention of course, our food nourishes you from the inside out, is totally organic and house-made, very tasty and highly affordable…our portion sizes are an amazing value for your money!

Image

For those businesses who would like to hold meetings, presentations, or events at our resort, we have some excellent news….Our Events Room is almost fully completed! Once finished, it will be able to accommodate 30-40 people.

Image

Better yet, the use of our many different outdoor areas is completely free!
You only have to pay our very affordable 150 Peso consumable entrance fee.

If you and your group get hungry… Don’t worry!
For a minimum of 30 people, we offer a very tasty buffet with four different options & price ranges to choose from….everything from pasta and salad, to seafood, chicken, pork & steak…we’ve got your hungry employees covered, so you can focus on the important stuff.

Image

Now for a little bit of humor to end today’s post.
At the bar, we love to listen to awesome dance tunes…and this summer season, we think the best song is YLVIS’s ‘What’s The Fox Say?’

We love this song for a good reason: Our Resident Resort Mascot’s name is ‘Foxy’!
To our knowledge, no one’s been able to figure out what our Foxy says…..Until now!

If you know your memes, you will know the popular trend of doge, which is how we’ve learned exactly what Foxy is saying these days!

We present to you: Cool Foxy
