New Prescription Glasses c/o Firmoo

My eyesight has never really gotten better ever since I started law school. Thankfully, it did not become worse. This isn't the first time I'll be featuring Firmoo.com on my blog because they sent me my very first prescription glasses more than 2 years ago when I was still a newbie blogger. Unfortunately, I lost the pair they sent me a year ago.

This time, I'll be featuring their Unisex Full-Frame Acetate Eyeglasses in Clear and Tortoise. As usual, I had a hard time picking a pair. What I had in mind is a pair that is not any similar to any pair I have worn before and something smaller in size so that it won't fall off my face. Luckily, Firmoo's website is easy to navigate. You could limit your choices by choosing from the different categories (by shapes, by material, by frame, by size) they have come up with. 

Initially, I thought that the casing of Firmoo has improved. From what used to be a clear plastic casing, they have come up with a more chic and sturdy casing with a nice map print. I love the felt-like inner lining, as well. As usual, the glasses also came with an eyeglasses bag, micro-fiber lens cloth, and one screwdriver.

Ordering at Firmoo's website is very simple: just pick a pair that you want; choose if it is for prescription, fashion, or reading; place your prescription, if applicable; select the thickness of the lens; choose some add-ons (anti-scratch, uv coating, tint, anti-radiation); and confirm your order. Of course, you could always make use of their try-on system so you'll know how the glasses would look like on you without having to actually try them on.

I was indeed very happy with my pair. I've never had clear glasses before and I've been wanting a tortoise print glasses for so long. This pair is just the perfect combination of the two! It took around three weeks before they arrived at my local post office, though I think they actually arrived a week or two after I placed my order. Nevertheless, this pair still came in before my birthday. :)

The only thing that I didn't really like about this pair is that I thought it would be tad bigger when I ordered it. It turned out to be really small as compared to my previous glasses. I had some difficulties adjusting to this one but it didn't take that long. The nice thing about it being small is that it doesn't droop down my nose. The fit is just perfect! Anyway, here are some photos of me wearing my new glasses:

This pair costs only $39 and I could say that it is very affordable considering the design, fit, and material of the glasses. The cheapest pair I found in the mall costs around P1000 (more or less $20) and the frame isn't that appealing. At least with Firmoo, you could get the latest designs at the cheapest price without compromising quality. Visit Firmoo.com now to choose a pair from their vast collection of prescription and non-prescription glasses and sunglasses! Like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

The Skin Specialist welcomes its 12th anniversary with the Eraser Laser

It was a joyous evening for The Skin Specialist as it celebrated its 12th year anniversary. People from the press, celebrities, and loyal patients of The Skin Specialist graced the event held at the Cities Events Place last October 22nd. The Skin Specialist, which used to be a small clinic located at Timog Avenue, has grown into an elite clinic in Quezon City and is now equipped with more than 50 machine treatments. During its anniversary celebration, it launched its newest machine - the Eraser Laser.

Dr. Jean Marquez, founder and medical director of The Skin Specialist

Before the program itself started, everyone was treated to great food and drinks, nice music (by Powerhouse band and Mr. Joey G of Side A band), and awesome conversation with new friends.

The Eraser Laser, as pointed out by host Issa Litton, is an embodiment of beauty and magic into one machine. Why? Because it is able to erase dark parts of the face and the body quickly, effortlessly, and painlessly. The Eraser Laser is the latest Q-switch Nd:Yag pigment lightening laser to enter the country. Q-switch Nd:YAG laser devices are well established in aesthetic medicine as state-of-the-art skin rejuvenation tools.

Designed for Asian skin, the Eraser Laser uses the next generation technology, Rich PTP (Photo-acoustic Toning Pulse) which is able to harness, control and maintain the powerful Nd:YAG, resulting in safer and more effective treatment of pigmented lesions such as melasma, scars and freckles as well as dark areas of the body like underarms, groin area, under the eyes, lips, feet, birthmarks and tattoos. This technology selectively targets and shatters pigmented lesions.

So what makes this product differ from other pigment lightening machines? It boasts of new and upgraded technologies that make it safer and more effective, especially for Asian skin. First, its RICH PTP or Photoacoustic Toning Pulse delivers the energy into two pulses instead of one burst of power making it safer but without compromising its power. It provides easier and faster treatment that prevents burns, scarring and tissue damage.  Second, the Eraser Laser’s Top Hat technology delivers energy evenly along the surface of the skin, making the procedure safer and virtually painless for melasma and Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation. Finally, its equal beam size and energy maintains the stability of energy output regardless of the distance of the handpiece from the skin surface. The Eraser Laser’s laser energy is constant, producing consistent and accurate results.

Today, more and more people are inquiring about the treatment, largely due to word of mouth testimonies of satisfied patients. Some celebrities have this to say about the Eraser Laser:

“Only one session and my skin was renewed. Even my shave burns disappeared,” says one TV host.

“I am amazed with the instant result of Dr. Jean’s treatment for pigmentation. My sun spots were lightened and it also improved my skin texture,” says another public figure.

“It really does work like an eraser! It’s great! And the best part is that it’s painless and the procedure doesn’t take long,” attests a prominent broadcast journalist.

Uses next generation technology, designed for Asian skin, no downtime, and less painful. Think this is too good to be true? Visit The Skin Specialist now to find out yourself! Thank you, The Skin Specialist and Dr. Jean, for having me! Can't wait to try this one out soon. :)
