As a volunteer facilitator for my Barangay, I was asked if I knew any green living advocates that could give a talk or workshop to our kasambahay or household helpers on living green. We already have a pretty strict garbage disposal segregation system that has worked to our advantage. Less flooding on our flood-prone streets.
First thing that came to mind was MESSY BESSY. I’ve known about them since 2007. All natural locally produced and sourced cleaning products. What else could you ask for? Over the years, I have tried to convince my own household to use earth-friendly biodegradable cleaning products but, sad to say it’s like trying to drill into a hard diamond-like rock which usually leaves me frustrated. I decided to use these products and other eco-friendly products on my own things, my own bathroom, room and that of my son and for my Jivey of course. If I lived alone, you know what to expect.
Here’s MESSY BESSY’s I Clean. I Green, I Educate Video. Please watch.
Despite the setback, I still promote using all natural products. There are actually a number of them in the market these days. It’s just a matter of knowing where to get them and planning when to get them. I was so happy that MESSY BESSY agreed to give a short talk and product demonstration to the facilitators and kasambahays how easy it is to have a green and healthy living environment by using natural cleaning products. Thank you @kriechoor for all your help.
I’ve said this so many times that I’m beginning to sound like a broken record. We must all make that CONSCIOUS EFFORT in choosing and using earth friendly biodegradable products in our daily lives. Simple. Economical. Good for the environment. Good for our seas and good for our health. Cheers to that!

LET’s DO OUR PART in SAVING OUR EARTH. It’s the only ONE we have.
I can’t remember when I started using HUMAN NATURE products. Two years ago perhaps? I mostly got the body, bath, and cleansing line. From shampoo, conditioner, facial wash, facial scrub, hand spray sanitizers, hand gel sanitizers, liquid hand soaps, massage oils, baby wash, sunflower oil, and even coffee. Unfortunately, the shampoo and conditioner didn’t work well with me. I was losing so much hair. Later on discovering that I had a thyroid problem, thus the hair loss. So it couldn’t have been the hair products. Just to be safe, I stopped using them. I used the tomato toner, that is no longer part of the line, but gave me excessive peeling and whatnot so I stopped using that too. I went back to my good ole Cetaphil and Olay Toner. However, being an eager beaver trying to promote and use all natural and local products, I continued using the products that worked for me.
When I heard that there was a Mineral Make-up line, I got excited because as they claim, it’s ONLY the GOOD. I was using Heliocare which my mom got me in Spain (I think) and pretty sure came with a hefty price tag as well. I was a Neutrogena Make-up fan because, having sensitive skin, I had to go with the least harmful. But how often was I able to get my stash aside from my personal travels? Body Shop had their make-up line too but truth be told, I can’t afford expensive make up anymore.
I initially got the 100% Natural Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation in Toffee. I am in between that Medium and Morena shade and not wanting to look like a “turtle espasol” (private joke). I have been using this for a month now and loving its feel and natural look. For the price of P475.00 7.5g (Special Offer) it’s not bad at all.
Today, I got my package after only ordering it yesterday. Yay! Thank you for the uber fast transaction and delivery! Yipee!
Pressed Foundation Boracay Bronze @ P295.00
Pressed Blush Pink Quartz @ P175.00
Lip Gloss Island Berry @ P175.00
Tinted Lip Balm Flame Tree @ P79.75
T O T A L P 724.75
Total is LESS than P1000.00. A pressed powder from Body Shop is more than a thousand bucks. Go figure. It boils down to this; In this day and age, we have to make smart practical choices. I am first and foremost for the uplifting of the lives of our countrymen. If by purchasing these products, I am helping the livelihoods of these farmers, which is a good thing ya? I’m making the right choice by using all natural products that good for the skin and by not harming the environment ya? When it’s all good, you feel good and radiate that good to others. The cycle of good begins. Make SMART, PRACTICAL, GOOD, CHOICES. Cheers to that!
