Glad to discover another and great product called, Forti-D, an easy-to-swallow small gel capsule that contains 800 IU of Vitamin D3.  1 capsule a day gives you your daily requirement of Vitamin D (800 IU) and safe for daily intake.

Forti-D gives protective effects against serious diseases by keeping VITAL ORGANS functioning healthily (including the heart, bones, muscles and brain).

Unfortunately, 7 out of 10 Filipinos lack Vitamin D and you could be one of them. Studies shows there are insufficient level intake of Vitamin D among Filipinos. Many people don’t get enough Vitamin D, which can result to osteoporosis,

To make sure my children get the right amount of Vitamin D, I am preparing Vitamin D enrich foods like tuna, salmon and mackerel. Most dairy products like soy milk, cereals, cheese, yoghurt and even egg yolks.

Serious signs of Vitamin D deficiency are:

  1. Tiredness or fatigue
  2. Joint Pain
  3. Disturbed Sleep
  4. Gaining weight
  5. Muscle cramps

For only Php6.50 per capsule you can be sure that you are protected against serious chronic illnesses.

Happyganics Baby Detergent Review

Are you an expectant mom or a new mom? If yes, welcome to the world of tons of baby clothes and laundry. Much more if you will use cloth diapers like me, you have to be careful choosing baby detergent brands to use and keep away your child’s clothes from any harmful chemicals and irritants which can be found in detergents.

I was blessed to received and try Happyganics baby laundry detergent. Let me share you why this is recommended for your little one’s clothes, bedding, towel, stroller cover and more.


900 grams can be used for 60 loads


Sodium Carbonate – “soda ash”, it is a water softener and helps laundry detergents to lather more effectively. Also a mild disinfectant and PH adjuster.

Sodium Chloride – also called table salt. It is to use as viscosity increasing agent in the detergent.

Sodium Metasilicate (Soda) – as builder to enhance the cleaning efficiency of the surfactant. It helps reduce water hardness.

Alkyl Polyglycoside (non-ionic surfactant from coconut and palm kernel oils) – They are used to enhance the formation of fine and smooth foam for delicate fabrics. Most importantly, they are readily biodegradable and skin friendly.

Sodium Sulfate (Natural Glauber’s Salt) – enable the detergent powder to flow freely, so that the detergent would not stick together.

Why Happyganics is safe to use? 

It is 100% natural and bio-degradable, with no toxic chemicals. Ultra-concentrated.
No SLS – An anionic detergent and surfactant found in many personal care products such as soaps, shampoos, toothpaste etc. If expose you can have skin irritations, neurotoxicity, organ toxicity and disruption of the body’s endocrine system.
No optical brightening chemicals – dyes that are added to laundry detergent with sole intention of tricking your eyes believing that clothes are clean than they usually are, more specifically by reflecting blue light. Chances to get skin, eyes and pharynx irritation, liver damage, allergies, decreased heart rate, depressed ventilation in children and the cause of developmental effects on human.

No phosphates – chemicals found containing phosphorus. It is used to help soften water and remove soil, oil and grease. If expose to this kind of chemicals chances to experience diarrhea, skin irritations and nausea.

No chlorine bleach – known for it’s ability to keep clothes white in removing mold and mildew from shower and it’s disinfectant properties. Risks for eyes, skin and respiratory tract irritation by inhaling the gases of it.

No synthetic fragrances – derived from petrochemicals. Risks of cancer, nervous system disorders, allergies and even birth defects.
Hypoallergenic that prevents skin irritations and even perfect for sensitive skin.

Excellent cleaning power and 99.9% sterilization at the same.
Low suds, sutable for front or top loading standard and high efficiency washing machines.
Works well with cloth diapers, baby clothes, covers, rag dolls. Adults also can use it with their clothes.
Antibacterial that eliminates germs and odor. Leaves your laundry smell fresh even for indoor hanging of clothes.
Environment friendly.


1.5 kilograms P1, 390.00

900 grams – P 990.00

150 grams  – P 249.00

Comes in Lavender and Natural Unscented


  1. Use one 15g scoop for the 5kg load or 45 liters of water.
  2. Will dissolve in cold or hot water quickly.

MY FINAL SAY ABOUT THE PRODUCT: Tried this product for the cloth diapers, sweaters, even toys of my children I have, it leaves soothing smell because I used the Lavender scent. It is not foamy. If you will follow the directions well, you’ll get the result as expected. The only thing though that I noticed the product is quite expensive. But I guess  it can justify the product itself and since it is the safest baby laundry detergent in the market these days, moms won’t mind paying for the price and it can protect your child’s delicate skin and from any harmful ingredients. Yes, this is costly initially, but we should compute it based on the cost per load. Example for a 1.5kg can, it can wash 100 loads (5kls / load) @ Php 1,390. Which means per load the cost is PhP 13.90. For local brand, their price is about PhP 272 for 1KG and can only wash 22 loads (equivalent to heavy load or 5kg) this means that their cost per load is PhP 12.36. More or less, Happyganics price is competitive in the market. It is a little expensive because the raw materials is made in USA.

Product Rating: 4 out of 5, most likely to recommend the product ♥

Biobita Food Supplement Granules Review

Biobita Food supplement granules was prescribed by our Pediatrician 4 years ago when my daughter suffered from Diarrhea. She recommended this to help my child’s digestive problem. Probiotics are live bacteria that are good for our health, specifically our digestive system. Our body is full of good and bad bacteria and Probiotics are the good ones. Though we can find them in some foods.

What is Probiotic?

It literally means “for life”.By definition, a probiotic is a live microbial food supplement which beneficially affects the body by improving its intestinal microbial balance.

There is a good bacteria, beneficial bacteria along with pathogenic or bad bacteria, live on our skin, mouths and gastrointestinal tract. More than 400 different species of bacteria have been estimated to make their homes within our bodies.

Why are Probiotics good for your child?

Probiotics are important because they help combat the effects of infections, poor diet and tiredness which very often wipe out healthy bacteria. This may lead to constipation or diarrhea or more serious conditions.

Probiotics help improve their intestinal tract to nurture your child’s immune system and prevent maldigestion and under nutrition.

They make your children’s digestive healthy like after taking antibiotics, probiotics replace them. It helps balance the good bacteria over bad ones.

Let me share you about the product:

Biobita is a granulated mixed of probiotics and vitamins. It helps improves your child’s intestinal and digestive health, ecology, and their over all well being.

50g bottle
100g bottle

P350.00 (50g bottle)

Where to buy?

Biobita granules is available in selected Mercury Drug store. You may check it here. You can also check their Facebook page for promos of Biobota. Big discount you can save.

Recommended Use:

For 6 months to 7 years old. Mix 1 gram of Biobita in water, milk, or weaning baby food  2 times daily or as directed by a physician using the spoon provided.

 A flat measurement from the top of the spoon provided is equivalent to 1 gram.

Overall Impression:

Diana was 2 years old then when she started taking Biobita, her digestive system improved and recovered from diarrhea few days after. Yvan tried using it (due to constipation), after a couple of days Yvan’s poop condition somehow change, it becomes softer a bit. We are still testing it and give it like more weeks to see the improvement. I give Biobita twice a day. Breakfast and at night. Will keep this post updated.

How do I give it to my children?

I mix it with their milk or water. It is tasteless.

Will  I recommend Biobita to my fellow parents?

Yes, because Biobota helps aid digestion of my children and their immunity as well.

I hope this helps! Would love to hear your thoughts  ♥

  3. Looks like it can be use for both eyelid and eyebrows ( no need to buy separate pencil.)
  4. It does not have strong smell.

What I don’t like about Duo Eye Enhancer-Dark Copper:

  2. Very light cream but when it dries looks like a powder/eye brush finished.
  3. It lasts 6 hours on me.
  4. Cheaper than any leading eyebrow gel. Perfect sa budget ko 🙂

What I don’t like about Eyebrow Gel-Copper Brown:

  1. Copper brown does not compliment my hair color.
  2. I can’t use it alone because my brows are thin so I need to line an eye pencil first to give definition on my eyebrows.

Price: P165.00 available in all leading beauty stores nationwide

This is how they look together (sorry for my flaky skin)

Tried it and looks like just right. This is without the eye pencil.
