Must Have for 2017: The Dash Cam

Get your hands on these devices smarter than your basic video camera, which can prove useful in sticky road situations and keeping everything in check.

Dashboard cameras(dash cams) have become increasingly popular and essential over the past couple of years and Lazada Philippines offers you options that can fit your budget.

Think of it as the GoPro of your lovely car which records every detail that takes place both on the road and inside the car. It also provides an objective eye in driving situations that are often met with confusion. Simply mount this nifty device to the dashboard/windscreen of your car and you’re all set for the road trip.

Have a peak on its benefits and why it’s a good buy:

·        Crash for Cash
Be not afraid to be a victim of some modus operandi and protect yourself if you fall prey to these illegal money-making organizations. They try to cut in on your right of way to cause a collision and report an alleged injured passenger to extort money from you. Getting a dashcam could be the strongest proof to defend yourself and be acquitted from such circumstances.

·        Incident Recording
In case your car gets involved in a road accident that clearly is not your fault, this camera will be your most important witness to prove otherwise.

·        Avoid getting tickets
For a driving violation you did not commit, readily offer to open up and review your dash cam footage before a ticket is given.

·        Teenage Driving
Set up a regular schedule to review the dash cam footage of your kid’s driving. See what you can do to prevent him/her from getting a ticket or being involved in an accident. Best to be preventive and give them tips on what they can do better when on the road.

With the variety of dash cams currently out on the market at quite hefty prices, purchasing one might seem like a big spend and out of budget. Worry no more in finding the best dashboard cameras as LazadaPhilippines, the country’s one-stop online shopping and selling destination, gives you enough reasons to shop more and spend less. Simply visit to and browse through your dash cam options.

Birthday Blow-out!

March also marks Lazada Philippines’ anniversary month and the company is set to offer great deals on its Birthday Sale happening on March 21-23. Enjoy a birthday blowout of killer deals, massive discounts, unbeatable flash sales, and many more amazing surprises during this three-day birthday shopping extravaganza.

Review: Pixi by Petra Mascara

Lash Booster Mascara

Product Description from Pixi Website:Pixi Beauty Lash Booster Mascara is a rich, volume-enhancing mascara that curls, defines and accentuates the lashes with its glossy finish. This nourishing mascara is enriched with essential vitamins and contains long-lasting, full color that's waterproof. Blackest Black is a deep, true black shade.

The mascara comes with a box which is plus points. Customers will refrain from opening the tube immediately. The ingredients are also written on the box.

In the box it is indicated that is made in China but designed in the USA. It is Paraben free.

Texture.  It doesn't dry up very fast and doesn't leave many clumps.

Effect. It lengthens the eyelashes. The wand is not curved. You need to use a good eyelash curler before using this. It is lightweight. The product description says it has a glossy finish. Compared to a glossy liquid eyeliner you cannot easily determine if has a glossy or matte finish.

If I compare it with Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara. Maybelline mascara dries up faster, has less contents in the tube and has more clumps. Maybelline Hypercurl holds the lashes stronger than Pixi by Petra Mascara.

Thank you Glamourbox Ph for sending this. You can purchase this for P840 (full size 7g).
