Hi, momsh!

If you're reading this, it only means that you want to be like me. A stunning work at home momma who still able to provide for her family financially and be with her kid 24/7.

Well, you're on the right platform. I've started working from home last 2016 it has nearly been more than 3 years now. The only reason I'm posting an updated one today is because the company I currently work for is looking for a lot of talents.

First things first, if you don't have any idea about how to start working from home, I suggest that you quickly browse through my old blog posts because I believe my journey will really help you a lot with transitioning, equipment, your online profiles, etc.

Tips: From 8 hour corporate job to working from home and still getting paid high salary


Things you need to know about working from home



Before we jump in on the actual job positions available at Cyberbacker. Please do your own research on what our company is all about. Sure, you can send me pm and ask me about anything but I am just not so sure if I can be able to respond to you because to be honest, I receive tons of messages everyday. If there's really something you need to ask about the company, you can browse through my old blog posts first and I suggest you send a personal message to our Cyberbacker Facebook page and I will be able to respond from there.

By the way, just a quick background. I've been working with Cyberbacker since May 2018 as their Social Media Manager and I have never been completely happy and satisfied with my work from home career. Of course, the previous companies I've remotely worked for in the past are probably much more prestigious but I never get the satisfaction of working remotely. With Cyberbacker, I can honestly say that it is the dream job that I have been waiting for and I do really see myself working for this company for a long time. And I am not just saying this to promote us, go ahead and read the reviews online. I swear, everybody wants to be part of the Cyberbacker family.

Okay, let's get down to business, as a general requirement and qualification, here's what we are looking for:
  • Must be 18 years old and above
  • Excellent in writing and speaking in English
  • Can type at least 60 words per minute (Yes, you can still try and apply if you can't meet this requiement)
  • No Virtual Assistant or BPO experience required
  • Can work graveyard shift - because we follow Mountain Time Schedule (MST)

Having a VA or BPO experience is not required before you apply but it is definitely an advantage to those who has them. We provide training to those who will be given job offers after they pass our assessment exams and interviews. We also offer a training allowance to newly hired employees.

Depending on the job opening, some required an experience and some do not.

CYBERBACKER 2019 WORK FROM HOME JOB OPENINGS:


Digital Content Producer position are perfect for those who are good with blog and content writing. It's better if you have an experience when applying for this job because we want someone who is already skilled and knowledgeable on this field.


We are in need of a lot of Growth Backers because our clients just keeps growing and growing. This is one of the positions that we are urgently looking for.


If you have a background in recruitment or HR then this Career Backer position is perfect for you to apply for. We don't require an experience because we provide training but a background will be able to help you a lot as well. We are also urgently looking to hire Career Backers because we are just swamped with so much applications everyday and we really need a lot of help so we are able to respond to everyone's job applications fast.


On applying as a part time, as a gentle reminder, we do not accept applicants who has other work commitments because we require all our employees to be 101% percent focused and dedicated with our clients.


These are the main role of a Cyberbacker, we have full time and part-time position currently open all through out the year.


We are really in need of a Graphic Artist, specifically those who know how to do caricatures and vexel art because that's what our CEO wants. If you can't do those two, no matter how good you are on this field, you won't get hired. I'm just being honest!


Cyberbacker is getting really big and we are growing really fast. When I started here last May 2018, we are only less than 50 employees, now are almost 100 employees and we are mostly Filipinos! All working remotely. So, since we are expanding, we are still in need of a Paralegal to help us out with you know, legal stuff. I believe the applicants for this needs to have a strong background on his/her field.


We are also in need of Social Media Backers since some clients requires their Cyberbackers to have an understanding of the online and social media world. We usually accept employees who doesn't have much experience on this field because I usually train them the basics before they get deployed to their clients.


Transaction Coordinator is also of the positions that we always look for but not as urgent as the other positions.

Questions you might have:

Q: What if I don't have the required equipment or internet speed or headset and camera?

Review

I kind of just went ahead and pick out Tea Tree Shampoo Bar and Lavender Conditioner Bar for myself. I do have a very thick hair, and along with that, I also have a very dry hair and I do get occasional dandruffs.


This what it looks like without the packaging,


Immediately, after taking off the wrappers, the scent of Tea Tree and Lavender is pretty strong. However, when I applied the shampoo bar on my hair the scent was not over powering as much as I expected and It's perfect for me since I do have nasal allergies. I really had fun using the shampoo bar! It's been more than a week and I am still using it. The product is not falling apart and it builds up on your hair pretty quick. I didn't have to do so much rubbing in order to get the product in on my hair. I believe this product will last a long time since it doesn't really need to get soaked on a water in order to get the bubbles on your hair. 

I loooove the Lavender Conditioner Bar so much because the scent just lasts all day on my hair. It was so soothing using this product. However, the conditioner bars are a bit thinner than the shampoo bars so they do break easily. Mine lasted for a bout 7 days, and I do have to rub it on my thick hair repeatedly to get the product in. I do wish it's more sturdier or thicker, I don't mind paying a bit more so long it lasts.

Overall, these products is something to watch out for. I've turned into a fan and I would definitely purchase when my bars have ran out.

Being a mom, I kind of just grab whatever it is convenient for us. Like grabbing bottled soaps, shampoos, etc. Because strolling at the grocery alone with a toddler is a bit hard for me to manage. But, these products are easy to get. You can purchase these through Bili App - it's an online grocery and shopping delivery app, and of course, if you happen to drop by their salon. you can purchase these products there too.

New #OOTD for your kids! PONEY Philippines is now open!

December 18, 2018

Hey, rookie mommas!

Time to get excited!

Last weekend, I was invited to attend Poney Philippines's new store launch in Trinoma mall, Quezon City. Good thing it was just a few minutes away from the house!


Poney is the leading kids apparel brand in Malaysia and I'm very much happy that they have finally opened a branch here in north QC.



Poney surprisingly has a vast selection of cute outfits ranging from babies, toddler, and kids for boys and girls that will surely make us snap that #ootd Instagram shot.






Although their branch in Trinoma is not that big, their clothing selection is really wide and you won't have any problem finding the perfect outfit for your kids because their staff is really helpful on getting and finding the sizes.

Here's Arya trying out of the overalls,


Here's a few snaps from the boy's selection of clothes,




The prices are ranging from P200 - P2,000 so it's definitely affordable for the quality and design of clothes that you will get. 

Poney Philippines is located at 3rd level of Trinoma mall beside Kids Zone. I'd like to thank Poney for giving us a chance to shop at their store. :)

[REVIEW] It's the perfect AHA/BHA product for sensitive and eczema prone skin types!

December 13, 2018

Hiya, rookie mommas and Kbeauty junkies!

It's been a while since my last skincare review but worry not. I'm back and this time, I'm actually super duper excited to share this new discovery with ya!



Althea, Philippine's fave online Korean Kbeauty store recently launched their very own AHA/BHA soft peeling mask. It is a gentle mask specifically made for stripping away dead skin cells on your skin and it is good with any skin types.

Now, you know me and my skin. Having extremely dry, overly sensitive, and eczema prone skin, I usually shy away from peeling products because they usually do more harm on my skin than good. However, I don't really have a decent exfoliating product that doesn't trigger my eczema.

The last product I have tried with AHA and BHA is the COSRX one, which I have also bought from Althea before, and even that product is quite harsh on my skin.


Let's get down to some of the details you might need to know:

Althea's Milk Peel Cream Mask,

  • Its active ingredients are AHA & BHA which help to peel off dead skin cells for smoother skin.
  • It contains Casein Protein (milk) to provide moisture and help the skin to stay moisturised all day.
  • It has a soft clay-like texture that bubbles up when massaged on damp skin to deeply cleanse the pores.
  • It is also cruelty-free!
How to use the product:
  1. Apply the product on damp skin and massage it gently until it becomes bubbly.
  2. Let it rest on your skin for 30-60 seconds before rinsing it off with warm water. 
Price:
P490.00 (USD 9) 50ML
FREE SHIPPING if you use the code PBSHIP on all ALTHEA exclusive products.

My Skin Type:
Overly sensitive skin
Dry skin
Eczema prone skin
Breakout prone skin


This cream mask is like a heavy cream that you can easily lather on your skin. But, you have to be quick because it foams and bubbles really fast.

Scent:
This cream mask smells like my baby! It smells really gentle, fresh, almost like a baby powder. Having sensitive and eczema prone skin means I have to use products with little to no scent at all because it triggers the eczema. Good thing, the scent on this one was not too much for my skin.

Texture:
Really thick, creamy but easy to spread on your skin.


The Milk Peel foams and bubbles really fast upon contact on the skin.


This is what it looks like after 30 seconds...


And this is what it looks like after 60 seconds.

How I use it:
I pre-wash my face with Althea's contour cleanser, I pat dry my face and apply the Milk Peel after. I rinse with warm water, followed immediately with the Primer Water, and then followed by my Elujai Propolis Serum. 
Once a week - every Wednesday night.

Review:
Althea's products is either a hit or miss for me and all I can really blame is my skin type. I'm so glad that I got to try this product because I can finally say that I have found The One - the one and only AHA/BHA product that will work on my skin type.

The Milk Peel is super gentle even on my dry, sensitive, and eczema prone skin. Upon contact on my skin, I did not feel any sting or itchyness. There were no redness after I rinse, and most importantly, it did not trigger any dry patches or my eczema.

After rinsing, my face felt really relieved. It's been a while since I've used any exfoliating products so I guess my skin thanked me for this. The roughness was immediately gone, it was almost as if I got an instant baby face effect. No kidding!

I received this product middle of November and I gave it a full 3 weeks so I can give my full and details review and here's a few things I want to share as well:

  • This Milk Peel is super gentle on the skin.
  • No sting, no itchyness, no redness after - However, on my second try, I do have one huge pimple on my nose that I just popped, so when I applied the Milk Peel, it did sting a little, but only on that area.
  • Follow the 30 - 60 seconds rule - On my 3rd try, I kind of went over 1 minute because I was doing some work while it was on my face and I kind of forgot so it felt like the product was sucking the moisture away from my skin. So, use a timer!
I now use this regularly with my skin care routine and I am super happy! I actually just ordered a new bottle for my aunt to try.

If this product worked it's magic with a skin type like mine, then I can honestly say that this product will also work on you! Trust me!



Grab it while it's still available! :)
