Photoescape Reviews: Aqua Mineral Body Scrub and Body Butter


Hey guys! I'm back with a new review~!


For today's review will be all about Aqua Mineral from the dead sea body scrub and body butter.

Just to make it clear, I am not getting paid nor advised to write these things and all opinions are solely based on my opinion. 

Okay...here goes.

I love body scrubs..who doesn't right? I especially love getting body scrubs at beauty centers because of the relaxation and free massage. But if you think about it if you add up all the cost of going to and from the beauty center, getting the scrub and such would cost you a lot annually.

I am quite a cheapskate which I remember I did a calculation on it and if I do get a body scrub professionally done it would cost me about 1,200php a month without adding the cost of going to the beauty center.

It was too painful for my wallet that is.

So checking out a cheaper alternative is great and all but usually the scrubs that are used in beauty centers have a more gritty consistency which makes exfoliating much better for my skin.


I actually found one which is similar in consistency that I can just use at home which is Aqua Mineral from the Dead Sea.

It boasts of being Dead Sea Salt that came from the Dead Sea. Its created to remove dead cells and other impurities of the body that makes our skin look dull.

Usually this happens when the weather is really cold then suddenly it becomes hot and humid. Usually our skin does that because its transitioning this at times it can't shed faster - yeah I used the word shed about our skin.

As checking the ingredients I noticed that it contained different oils like rapeseed oil, sunflower oil and also grape seed oil which has known benefits to the skin when it comes to moisturizing and regenerating cells to the body.

Thus making our skin smoother without removing too much oils in the body.

One thing though that I don't like about this is no matter how small the amount I use from the scrub it leaves my skin with a thin film of oil which is a little irritating when you wipe it off after you shower. But I will over look that because it still makes my skin really smooth after showering.

As for the body butter, it is the same scent as the scrub but I feel that if you use this you don't have to apply a separate body mist or perfume because the scent really does stay in your skin.

The body butter comes in a big tub that I think even after a year of continuous usage, you would still have enough for another year of use so its much better to use this as well as a deep moisturizing lotion for those really dry areas that you can use before you hop to bed for the night.

I actually use a small dot that is the same size as a twenty five peso coin daily so think about how much product I still have. I'm actually sharing this with my mom and she is picky with scents and luckily she likes this scent a lot.

Overall, I think Aqua Mineral from the dead sea is a great investment for your skin because it really does give you a smoother and radiant skin with continuous use. It is a little expensive but if you add up going to a professional for a monthly scrub or even a quarterly one its much more expensive in total so going for Aqua Mineral actually is a great option.

If you'd like to see more of their other products make sure to head off to their Facebook page or to any stall they have at the Malls like SM.

Much Love!

Be a Goddess with Jill Ngo and the Goddesses of Belly Dancing




Sidenote: 
Internet connection lately has been awry so this post was really really really late. But still I will be uploading new articles soon so please understand -_- I deeply apologize again. 

Belly dancing is one of those dances that would amaze you because the body is like water when you see it move. 

I am not a dancer in any way although I did try to be a ballerina when I was younger. So trying a new form of dance is something I can check off my list. 

The simple get together was held at Footworks Dance Studio. I was a bit late since most of the girls have done the pep talk and the initial stretching has started. 


Did I tell you guys that stretching is one of the most basic things you need to do in any form of dance and belly dancing hs more focused on the area that is not highlighted on other dances which is our core area. So imagine the horror in my face doing those stretching positions but luckily I pulled through haha! 


The next part was learning some moves. Its not like the simple wiggle to the side. Ms. Jill actually taught us 'isolation' from our upper body to the hips and vice versa. Its hard to explain and also to show you guys. But if you have a very imaginative brain or you have tried Belly dancing you would know what I'm talking about. 


There is also a trick she taught us which is the Goddess posture which makes us look taller. It actually is called "lengthening" which is also used by some pageant contestants and models to make themselves look taller even though they already are (I'm not bitter I swear)


Beyond from the dance lesson, Ms. Jill also shared to us that Belly Dancing is not just a simple dance but more of an empowerment for women. If you think about it Belly dancers around the world are revered not just because of their bodies but of how much of a good performer they are to any crowd. 




Belly Dancing also is a way to give us confidence no matter what size we are. Because lets be honest, most of us don't dance not because we don't know how to but because we are afraid what we look like doing it.  


By the end of the exercise, we were surprised because three of the members of Goddesses of Belly dance performed for us. It was an amazing performance and watching it live really convinces you that our body is really flexible no matter what age you are. 

Speaking of Goddesses of Belly dance, they are the largest and most in-demand professional belly dance group in the country led by no other than the gorgeous and Chief Goddess herself, Ms. Jill Ngo-Crisologo who is also a certified Zumba and Pilates instructor. 


Me looking as awkward as possible with this pose but what the heck LOL
Ms. Jill also offers a transformation package that is tailored fit for brides-to-be who wants to look like Aphrodite on her special day - don't deny, I've heard it several times.

So if you want to be a Goddess for a day or have the Goddesses of Belly
dance for your special event this summer season you can contact her with the information I'll be providing below. 

Also Ms. Jill has belly dance classes at Footworks dance studio every Monday at 7PM so make sure to book your class this Summer!

Things to Expect on a Beach themed EDM Party




I like listening to EDM but I'm never the kind that actually go to a club a lot because sometimes I prefer to dance it out on my own. I'm weird like that. 

But I actually did not pass this opportunity because its better if I try it once right?

So here are some of the things that you can expect on an EDM party at the beach.
