Bench Hand Sanitizer

BENCH hand sanitizer

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Gone are the days when we find alcohol bottles inside our bags. Innovations included a small bottle of hand sanitizers that comes out so handy we can bring them everyday.


My favorite scent in violet!

Not only that, they now come in different scents, packed beautifully in varying colors depicting each special flavor.


Strawberry flavor!


Green apple flavor!


Kiwi flavor!

The good news is it doesn’t dry my skin and the scent is lasting. =)

There was even a time, when something like this became a trend.

Short-lived trend..

Hanging on everyone’s bag and I just can’t help it I did the same. Ahahaha! Only when on more than one occasion I discovered it flowing freely and has stained one of my favorite bags so I did stop using it. And faithfully I came back to my original favorite hand sanitizer from Bench.

Thank you Bench!

Just lately, it already comes in a smaller size, the better for me. =)

I started using it 3 years ago and I panicked each time I’m running out of it. Aside from fab shirts, under wears, denims and footwear. Bench happened to be a part of every teenager’s life in the Philippines. It’s like a local version of Aeropostale or Abercrombie & Fitch. Thank you Bench for these hand sanitizers.


It’s not that expensive too..=)


Badger Sleep Balm…

BADGER sleep balm..

“No beauty shines brightest than that of a good heart.”

Travelling from one place to another causes me headaches at times. And sleeping became harder when you’re alone in your hotel room and far away from your loved ones (and there’s no internet, oh well!). My boss recommended that I might want to visit some spas from the towns I’ve visited and from this time-passing habit/ killing time/ enjoying solitude, the spas taught me to about the benefits of different balms & oils especially when you’re living a life in a suitcase. I had appreciated aroma therapy and all the other therapeutic products there could ever be.

One of my best finds is the sleep enhancer from Badger.

Certified organic.

I was just looking around inside this store, and a sales lady ardent enough to recommend it to me, had me try it. Initially, I was having second thoughts upon reading on the ingredients: (Olea Europaea (Extra Virgin Olive) Oil, *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), Essential Oils of *Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot), *Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender), *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary Verbenone), *Zingiber Officinale (Ginger), *Abies Balsamea (Balsam Fir) and CO2 Extract of Zingiber Officinale (Ginger). As I do not like the thought of ginger that much. Surprisingly, when I tried it on, the scent was so soothing, and being informed that everything on it are from natural ingredients, I had to buy it right away.

Just rub it on your forehead, under your nose, on your lips, on your temples or other pulse points. It doesn’t have a sticky feel too.

The fragrance is so relaxing it really brought me to a peaceful sleep. Sweet dreams to the makers of Badger…(–,)


It is so handy, which makes it an ideal travel companion, it easily fits inside your kit. It was good to know that it comes in smaller tins as well, boxed along with the other variants.
