Playful Baby Wipes, a review.

at

Baby wipes — every mom’s life-saver when we go out with our little one.

Playful Baby Wipes

I came across this brand, Playful Baby Wipes while searching for an alternative. It is cheaper than what we are currently using and has good reviews.

Playful Baby Wipes is owned by Primero World Alliance Corp, a Philippine-based import company founded in August of 2004. It comes in two variants: Hypo-Allergenic Baby Wipes (blue packaging) and Anti-bacterial All Purpose Wipes (pink packaging).

Hypo-Allergenic Baby Wipes is alcohol and fragrance-free to gently care for baby’s sensitive skin, while Anti-bacterial All Purpose Wipes is paraben-free and has a light floral scent when used on the skin. Both are made with high-quality soft fibers and are infused with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to keep baby’s skin healthy and moisturized.

I have been using both variants for a month now and I am satisfied with the performance. My toddler’s skin is slightly sensitive, especially the bum area, but I haven’t seen any redness or rashes so far when I used it. As each sheet is thick and moisture is just enough, 1 or 2 pulls would suffice for a dirty hand or to clean up my baby’s bum when we are outdoors.

Oh, I got mine in Lazada if you are wondering where I purchased them. Hypo-Allergenic Baby Wipes: 90’s – P76.00, 55’s – P47.00, 30’s – P33.25. Anti-bacterial All Purpose Wipes: 90’s – P80.75, 30’s – P37.00, 15’s x 3 packs – P60.00 (prices listed are as of August 7, 2019). They sell these in bundles as well if you are looking to purchase in bulk. They also sell Playful Baby Diapers – magic tape, and pants – but I haven’t tried it yet on my toddler.

I am just so happy to share that I found a great and affordable product for my toddler.

Head and Shoulders helps to remove barriers so people can put their #HeadsTogether!

To know more about Head Shoulders’ #HeadsTogether Campaign watch the video here and join the conversations online on how you break barriers like dandruff.

In a world that was taught to despise crowded spaces, Head and Shoulders encourages people to find the beauty in it.

#HeadsTogether made its online debut this month with tug-at-heartstring video content; an eye-opener on what most people fail to see when they’re caught up inside crowded spaces: the birth of beautiful friendships, a helping hand from a complete stranger, the comfort of warm smiles in unexpected situations. This campaign is a reminder to continue to see the good in the bad, and that the only way this can happen, is when we start to remove the barriers between two people.

Head & Shoulders

Head and Shoulders inspires Filipinos to put their #HeadsTogether

As dandruff remains to be a main hair and scalp problem of Filipinos, exposure to crowded spaces with hot, humid weather makes scalp oilier and greasy-looking, and oily scalps tend to be more susceptible to dandruff.

Head & Shoulders

Dandruff prevents people from getting closer together. It’s an unspoken wall coming from personal discomfort, and Head and Shoulders aim to break this barrier to inspire more people to put their #HeadsTogether.
Head and Shoulders believe in a dandruff-free world; a world without the barriers of flakes and scalp odor. The world’s no. 1 shampoo celebrates closeness and inclusivity, as it inspires to build better and stronger relationships with others. So, no matter how crowded the world is – we are not afraid to be a part of it.

Dandruff-free World

About 50% of the population is prone to experience dandruff and over decades, Head and Shoulders is proven to provide cutting-edge technology and innovative products to address the world’s cry against dandruff. Clinically tested over 200 times, Head and Shoulders is the most tested and trusted anti-dandruff shampoo in the market.

Head & Shoulders

Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp and having a healthy and dandruff-free scalp could go a long way – for it does not only give you self-confidence but that peace of mind wherever you go.

Let Head and Shoulders be your best ally to be more confident to make new friends, ace that first day at your new job or even just hang out with old friends.

With the world’s no. 1 shampoo, it’s time to put our #HeadsTogether towards a dandruff-free world.

Airspeed – Soaring High Under the Wings of Women Leaders

at
Airspeed Women Leaders

In the male-dominated Philippine logistics industry, there is a company headed by a mother of four and has been successfully thriving and slugging it out with the “Big Boys” for more than 30 years. Airspeed is an end-to-end logistics solutions and express courier company founded in 1985 by Chairman and President Rosemarie P. Rafael. Through the leadership and vision of Mrs. Rafael, Airspeed has become one of the most trusted and fastest-growing logistics companies in the country today.

A closer look at Airspeed reveals why it stands out in the cargo and logistics industry and exposes the most probable reason why it continues to grow and prosper. Although it is unusual, it is not unlikely that a woman holds the top position in a highly successful logistics company. What is certainly extraordinary and significant, is that 80% of Airspeed’s top executives and 45% of Airspeed’s middle-tier managers, the people responsible for Airspeed’s achievements, are WOMEN!

Airspeed is proof that in an industry where men make most of the deals and decisions, women’s visions and perspectives are just as valued, judging by their rapid rise.

Rafael has chosen to empower women at Airspeed because women are naturally nurturing, and she believes that when people are supported and enabled, they do great and impossible things. Rafael also believes that her greatest competitive edge as a leader is being able to care deeply about her team, in fact, she considers her people as Airspeed’s biggest success.

Some of the women working under the wings of Rafael are General Manager and Senior Vice President Mariz Regis who takes care of the International team and E-Commerce Pick-Up and Delivery department; Assistant General Manager (for International) Maritoni Rey; Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Eliza Nieveras who heads the Finance and Administration; Chief Commercial Officer Grace Pascual who handles and trains the Corporate Sales team, Chief Information Technology Officer Liza Marquez who heads the Management Information System department; Chief Human Resources Officer Emilee Alfonso who handles the whole people management division; Vice President for Seafreight Thelma Manila, and Vice President for Pick-up and Delivery Josefa Susbilla.

Having a majority of women leaders makes a difference in the way Airspeed does its business. The motherly instincts that women possess transcend work at Airspeed to a personal level. Management treats employees like family, which is why employee turnover is very minimal. When the management team handles clients, they also make sure they do not focus simply on making a sale but ensure that they feel cared for by Airspeed.

Airspeed’s women leaders are not only experts in their respective fields but visionaries as well. They are determined individuals who are devoted to making things happen and are committed to foster work-life integration. Because they see the bigger picture, the women of Airspeed know that Airspeed employees must be able to adapt to the fast-changing landscape of logistics. Airspeed continuously trains and educates employees through seminars, conferences, and like activities to remain up to date and stay competitive. To find ways and means of improving existing systems and technologies, employees, especially women, with the ability to innovate and the talent for disruption are stimulated, encouraged, and rewarded at Airspeed.

Airspeed aims to be a company that is highly respected by its peers and clients, a brand which is synonymous with reliability and integrity, and the preferred corporate logistics provider in the country. In the male-dominated logistics industry, the women of Airspeed are doing their best to make it happen.
