Nurture Nature

I'm lucky to currently live in a place where there's a lot of trees, plants, and space. I used to live in Makati, up until a couple of months ago when I moved into this condo at The Fort. Makati is pulsing with energy and the gears of business, but it's also cramped and almost entirely built out of concrete. The Fort, on the other hand, has a more leisurely feel to it, with an equal mix of greenery and cement. At first I didn't like it here, but I got used to it and now I can't think of living anywhere else!

Anyways. Nature is a good thing to have around us, but unless you're living or working near it, you'll be hard-pressed to commune with it. That is, until Rexona came up with a simple idea of bringing nature to you via the Internet.

Just this week the brand launched Nurture Nature, a Facebook app where you can watch a live garden in real time grow by giving commands to the cute gardeners. It's in line with their latest product called Rexona Naturals Antiperspirants, a supposedly more natural way to take care of your 'pits. It has sunflower seed oil and should not block your pores, thus allowing your skin breathe. I haven't used the products yet because quite frankly I don't need or use antiperspirants (I'm not a sweaty person), but I'll review when I get around to it!

In the meantime, check out the Rexona Facebook app. It's a stress-buster while you remotely take care of all those plants, but aside from that, you can get to ogle the gwapo and super hyper gardeners!

I don't know who this guy is, but damn does he move around a lot!

The plants are named after bloggers. Say hi to plant Liz! Water it, trim it, mist it - I don't want my namesake to die lol. I've sent the gardener some commands earlier so my plant should be okay for the meantime. I'd super appreciate it though if you help me take care of it too!

I believe that the three handsome gardeners are available for your requests from 5pm to 10pm. Watch them as they take care of the plants, answer inquiries, and occasionally dance to the music you've requested. Lol. But just a note, if you're using the Safari browser, the app may not work. I keep trying to access it for two days now till I finally got the idea to switch to Firefox. It works okay in that browser.

So what do you think of the app? Does it look like something you'll use?


PS If you want to try Rexona Naturals for free, head on over to my guessing contest to win a gift pack, along with other fun prizes! When that contest is over, I'll be giving away more Rexona packs. Still trying to figure out what contest, as I am tired of random-draw ones.
