Sulit.com.ph: “Ang di na ginagamit, ibenta mo na!”

Sulit.com.ph continues to dominate the online buy-and-sell category with latest campaign

An old guitar, a jacket now three sizes smaller, or an unused handbag may have been sitting at the bottom of your closet at home. What if someone is willing to pay for any of these items you have already forgotten about? This thought is what’s behind the latest campaign of Sulit.com.ph “Ang hindi na ginagamit, ibenta mo na!”.

 A follow-up on last year’s buyer-targeted campaign ‘Ano hanap mo?’, the new campaign is part of Sulit.com.ph’s bid to maintain its leadership in online buy-and-sell.

 “We hope that our latest campaign will resonate with many Filipinos who have a penchant for keeping things that are no longer being used. Instead of just taking up huge space in their house, these items can be sold to fetch earnings for the family,” said Sulit.com.ph managing director RJ David.

David was just 26 years old when he founded the company less than seven years ago in his bedroom, with only P2,400 as capital. Together with girlfriend (now wife) Arianne, he built a free platform for posting classified ads on a wide range of categories, from clothing and accessories, to tools and gadgets, furniture and appliances, and many more.

From its humble beginnings, Sulit.com.ph has evolved into a corporation called Netrepreneur Connections Enterprises, Inc., which now has 90 employees reporting to a plush two-floor office space in Ortigas.

Moreover, it now takes pride in having 2 million registered users, 2 billion pageviews last year, and an average of 10 million daily pageviews and 700,000 daily unique visitors. Their mobile pageviews and visitors are also showing remarkable strength, receiving an average of 1.8 million daily pageviews and 112,000 daily unique visitors.

Featuring the special participation of bloggers, Sulit.com.ph continues their partnership with World Vision. They have invited bloggers to bring a pre-loved item and sell it through their website. The total amount of sales will then be matched by Sulit.com.ph, and donated for World Vision’s humanitarian efforts.

 “Our company motto has always been to “pay it forward” and I’m excited that we got the chance to partner with top bloggers for this fundraising project for World Vision,” explained David.

Bioessence’s Anti-Flab Mud Treatment

Like probably most of you, I have been wanting to loose the extra pounds I gained over the holidays so I am currently back to my regular walking exercise and been controlling my carbo intake.  But then I’m afraid these aren’t doing much to my existing flabs though, if anything they just prevent me from gaining additional pounds. So you can just imagine how delighted I was when Bioessence invited me to try their Anti-Flab Mud Treatment, a non-invasive slimming treatment that aims to tone and firm the skin (target areas: tummy, thighs, arms), eliminate existing fats  and reduce cellulite formation.

I went to Bioessence Bacoor last Sunday for the treatment. There are three things I usually check out whenever I go to a spa, slimming, and skin treatment clinic:  place, staff, and service.

First thing I noticed  as soon as I entered the clinic was how welcoming and inviting the whole place is.  The treatment area is cozy and well-kept . The muted lights, soft tones, and soothing music made my body relax instantly. The common treatment area at the center is spacious and has several beds lined up beside each other, this is where the massage services and skin treatments are usually done.   They have several small private consoles as well where treatments that need to be done privately are performed.

I was assisted by Leri who has been with  Bioessence for the past nine years. The fact that she has worked that long in Bioessence for me says a lot about the company. I liked her right away especially after she gave me a heavenly massage.  I also like how the whole staff greets everyone with a smile and how attentive and accommodating they all are.

Shortly after I arrived, I was ushered in to one of the private  rooms where I was provided with a bathrobe and  fresh change of undies.  First step was a 10 minute session with the Slim Toning Machine. This machine looks a lot like the threadmill, the only difference is that instead of running or walking, you just stand on it and let yourself be literally shaken by the machine. This helps move and detach  fats from the body in preparation for the other treatments that will follow. I felt all my fats loosening up a bit during the exercise . People with vertigo and migraine problems though can opt not to take this because it can trigger an attack.

After that, I was brought to the other room for the Sauna, a heat treatment that increases metabolism, relaxes all muscles and flush out toxins in the body. I was a bit concerned with the intensity of the heat at first as this is my first time to try this. Turns out I didn’t have to worry at all as it is tolerable, my body actually welcomed the heat.  During the 15 minutes  Sauna treatment, I worked out a sweat and after that,  I felt good, relaxed, and destressed. For those persons whose blood pressure tends to shoot up easily, this treatment is highly discouraged. I appreciate the fact though that they do random blood pressure check up before the procedure.

Leri then prepared me for the cold mud treatment by first massaging my whole stomach with salt scrubs as this is the area where most of my flabs are concentrated. The salt scrub helps remove dead skin cells while the massage using anti-cellulite oil helps firm and tone up the tummy. After that, my tummy did feel a lot smoother and firmer to touch.

She then applied the Cold Fango mud on my whole tummy area. This rich mud which originated from the sea contains natural minerals and peppermint oil that helps  firm and tone the skin. It has tiny particles that cleanse and remove toxins caused by cellulite formations. It has the following ingredients: sodium, potassium, chlorine, calcium, bromine, selenium, spirulina, and St. John’s wort. All these minerals are known to aid cell metabolism and stabilize skin moisture. After the application of the cold fango mud, my torso was wrapped using plastic film for fast and easy absorption.  While we were waiting for the cold mud to work its magic on my tummy, Leri  massaged my whole body using anti-cellulite oil to relieve stress and to improve blood circulation.

After the cold fango mud, I was hooked up to the faradic machine for 30 minutes. Faradic is a spot reduction treatment used to firm and tone sagging tissues. Thirty minutes of faradic treatment is equivalent to 150-300 sit-ups. It is a form of electrical stimulation that uses a higher intensity current which is delivered through electrically conductive pads that are positioned over specific muscle groups. As the current passes through the conductive pads, it stimulates the motor points of the muscle triggering a visible muscle contraction. In my case, the conductive pads where placed along my tummy all the way to my back where toning and firming are needed most. The Faradic treatment is ideally used for body contouring as well.

Before the treatment, my waist and tummy circumferences were measured. After the two hour treatment, I lost 2 lbs. in both areas and my tummy is noticeably firmer and smaller.

I highly encouraged you to try this treatment because it is for me the safest way to loose the flabs instantly because it is non-invasive.  It also uses natural minerals and is designed not only to tone and firm muscles but to flush out the toxins and rejuvenate the whole body. Plus, it is very affordable especially now that they are on a promo till January 31.  For only 2,000 pesos you get two sessions of the Anti-Flab Treatment. So if you’re determined like me to loose those flabs, do not let this perfect opportunity pass, go the nearest Bioessence branch and try this now. Believe me, you won’t regret it. :)
