5 Things We Love at SaladStop!
The search for shops in Cebu with healthy food is still on the run and SaladStop! just opened a second branch at Oakridge Business Park, just in time for more people to try their delicious and healthy goodies.
SaladStop! offers a variety of flavors and exciting twists to the usual salad that we make at home, and we can’t help but love them for that. That being said, here are 5 things we love at SaladStop!
Their sweet and tasty Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
The Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies from SaladStop! allows you to indulge in sweet goodness with no guilt and regrets because it tastes like your regular chocolate chip cookie but it’s vegan which makes it have healthier benefits than your usual chocolate chip cookie.
For less than a hundred pesos, you get to enjoy their flavorful and tasty whole wheat chocolate chip cookies and it’s totally worth it. The cookies are sold in 15 pieces per pack which makes it even more better than any other cookie you get to taste.
Their freshly-made salads with a variety of choices for toppings and dressings
The best thing about SaladStop! is that you get to create your own salad with a variety of toppings and dressings that you can choose from. Just tell the salad artist and they’ll make the salad right in front of you. With more than 50 choices for toppings and 18 homemade dressing, surely you’ll get to enjoy the salad flavor that suits your taste best.
Of course, SaladStop! wouldn’t settle for just that. SaladStop! also has a menu of various salad choices that they’ve put together like their bestselling Oh Crab Lah! Salad.
Their bestselling Oh Crab Lah! Salad
As mentioned, SaladStop! offers a variety of salads with exciting twists to their flavor and one of them is their Oh Crab Lah! Salad. Originally from the flavors of Singaporean cuisine, the flavors of this salad will definitely dance in your tongues with its appetizing taste of Singapore’s famous chili crab dish mixed with your greens.
Ingredients: Romaine, Crab Sticks, Grated Eggs, Vermicelli, Cherry Tomatoes, Red Onions, Croutons and Singapore Chili Crab.
Healthy all the way menu
Another thing we love about SaladStop is that we don’t get tempted into purchasing anything that makes us regret buying like soda. Yes, you read that right. SaladStop does not sell soda. There, you get to maintain your healthy diet because they only sell juices and smoothies with high nutritional values. Of course, they wouldn’t forget water above all else.
Their new “Bring It Chon” salad
With the recent opening of their new branch, SaladStop! also introduces the new variety to their healthy menu called Bring It Chon, which is exclusively available in Cebu until June 12, 2019. Bring It Chon is a mix of your favorite fresh salad ingredients with a twist of Cebu Lechon’s savory flavor.
Ingredients of the Bring It Chon salad include: Romaine Lettuce, Quinoa, Cherry Tomatoes, Pickled Green Papaya, Fried Garlic, Ripe Mango, Turnip, Mango Cilantro Dressing and Lechon
Try Out This Summer Skincare Routine from Kiehl’s
Summer may be nearly over, but for those of us who seek to soak up the last of the sun’s rays before the season ends, it’s far from it—especially with the searing heat in Cebu. Coupled with the rise of the Earth’s average climate system, we’re more likely to experience hotter days.
When going for a swim or an adventure outdoors, we’re often advised to put on sunscreen to protect ourselves from the sun, and more often than not, it’s the only time most people put on sunscreen. There’s a widespread misconception among Filipinos that they don’t need it because their skin isn’t fair like Caucasians, who are more prone to skin cancer, but we actually do need it no matter the amount of melanin we have. Moreover, we need to apply sunscreen everyday—even if it’s not sunny out, or even if we’re not going to be out all day.
Sunscreen aside, there are many other ways to take care of your skin—and Kiehl’s has the right routine for these last few days of summer. You may have heard of the company, but if not, Kiehl’s is dedicated to providing the most efficacious and personalized skincare solutions to everyone, as part of their “Healthy Skin Guarantee”. They source the highest quality natural and scientifically advanced ingredients in their formulas for skin, hair, and body. Since 1851, they’ve blended pharmaceutical, herbal, and medicinal expertise to serve the unique needs of their community.
Here’s their 5-Step Summer Skincare Routine:
Tip 1: Use a gentle daily cleanser day & night to make sure your skin remains clean but not dehydrated
Try out the Calendula Deep-Cleansing Foaming Face Wash. It’s sulfate-free, soap-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free, allowing it to cleanse skin without stripping it of moisture.
Tip 2: Prep your skin with toner for faster skincare absorption
The Calendula Herbal-Extract toner is alcohol-free, and it gently cleanses and refreshes skin without harsh synthetic agents.
Tip 3: Use a Vitamin C serum to brighten your skin and reduce the dark spots/freckles
The Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution helps boost radiance and improve skin clarity. It’s formulated with Activated C, White Birch and Peony Extracts, and helps visibly brighten skin and diminish the number and intensity of dark spots and skin discolorations over time.
Tip 4: Tip #4: Hydrate your skin with a gel-type moisturizer to keep your skin’s hydration level balanced
Try the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream. With 24-hour hydration, this non-greasy moisturizer refreshes skin with an instant cooling effect. Stay hydrated and shine-free with this lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer.
Tip 5: Always use a sunscreen during the daytime, even if you’re just staying indoors
This Ultra Light Daily UV Defense help protect skin from the early signs of aging with SPF 50+. It’s lightweight and helps defend against UV rays, pollution and free radicals.
Kiehl’s opened their Store of the Future in Ayala Center Cebu last month. Check out these products, or have your skin tested by one of their specialists to find the best skincare products suited for your skin.
