Haiku Collection – September



A thriving beauty from a far

My sub-concious self did not miss

Not a far-cry from being amuse

I held my hands out, but it seems out of reach

A thriving beauty, surrounded by palisade

Sturdy, tall, almost they touches the sky

When sun’s luminosity comes so close

It sparkles, it glows and it’s a sight to behold

A thriving beauty, drenched in morning dews

It marks a new day, a new hope

Distinctively my lips curves lightly

It masks the tremors I’m feeling inside

A thriving beauty, sets fire in my heart

Tremendously, it swept away my soul

I’m in trance, oblivious of it’s nature

Unaware of the danger, as it broke all my defenses down


A summer of Lifelong nostalgic

Almost no niche for Felicity

Schizoid, contented in meaningless reverie

In a mind of a guff, a chef d ‘oeuvre

Few comrades, admirers sometimes adversities

Either Polaris or Canopus will guide the camaraderie

A melancholic man in midst of nocturnal life

A song of a nightingale is his Creed

A dream of a Nymph

To see falling lights, son of Andromeda

Make a wish to be granted

In absence of Athena’s cognizance

Arrow of Eros strikes a lonely heart

A sudden fervor outshines the whole World

Bliss fall down on earth in a cloud burst

Nirvana cries, shower sweet blessing to a single-blessedness.

Aphrodite, the kind Goddess.

I plead you, not to make this fondness one-sided.

Product Review: Mamonde Rose Water Toner

Rose Water is becoming popular today among beauty junkies out there. It claim to be beneficial and safe to be added on a daily beauty regimen.

Rose Water is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it can help reduce redness caused by irritated skin, eliminate acne and other skin problems such as dermatitis and eczema.

It was in October of 2017 when I was first introduced to Mamonde Rose Water Toner. My skin was so used into drugstore toner available, but because of the positive reviews I read on the internet I did not hesitate to give this product a try.

At that time I was also thinking to change the skin care products that I’d been using because I’d been breaking out badly on my forehead and left cheek.

I bought the product from Lizzybit Artsy an on-line cosmetic store.

Here are my thoughts about this toner.

All about Mamonde Rose Water Toner:

  • Contains 90.89% of Damask Rose raised in Bulgaria.
  • Others percentage consisting of Butylene Glycol (solvent, moisturizer), Plum Tree, Lotus Extract, Glycerin (solvent, moisturizer), Ethylhexylglycerin (moisturizer), Carbomer (viscocity control), Tromethamine (pH adjusters), Phenoxyethanol (preservative), Fragrance, and PEG hydrogel jeneyi Painted -60 castor oil.
  • Free of animal material, mineral oil, artificial coloring and 1, 4 dioxin.

How I use:

After washing my face I pat it dry. I pour adequate amount of the Toner on a cotton pad or sometimes with just my bare hands. I gently wipe it to my face and my neck. It is important to tone not only that it remove excess dirt but it also balance the skin PH level and retain the moisture that were strip off right after washing.


What I like:

  • Affordable price, 250ml cost Php550.00. A bottle can last from 4 to 6 months, depends on how often you use the product. It also comes in 500ml bottle.
  • Subtle Rose scent; I’m a huge fan of rose scent and I find it calming.
  • Hydrating and smooth on the skin, it has cooling effect and it doesn’t dry out my skin. I’m not sure if it helped my pimples to dry, but I’m no long breaking out on my cheeks.¬† My forehead is clearer now too.
  • Sturdy and hygienic¬† packaging with a flip top cap, and since it is translucent, you can easily tell how much product is left.
  • I’m already on my second bottle and I really love this toner.¬† I think it safe to say that I can recommend to try this product even for people with sensitive skin.
