Keeping it clean and ‘honest’
For Keeps, a local beauty brand that puts kindness first — to self, to others and to the planet — has made it a mission to create responsible and accessible #RadicallyHonestBodyCare essentials that one may indeed keep, for always.
What is clean beauty? It means all products are non-toxic, cruelty-free, GMO-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, paraffin-free, responsibly packaged and handcrafted with many ingredients locally sourced.
For Keeps launches two collections intentionally made to give people more opportunities to make better choices for themselves, the people around them and the planet.
The “Cleanse and Protect” collection (made with a mix of tea tree, peppermint and lemongrass essential oils) aims to be your all-natural everyday essentials for the new normal, while the “Arise and Unwind” collection (with skin-loving ingredients such as Arise’s mix of citrus-y essential oils and Unwind’s lavender essential oil) is the uplifting and calming aromatherapeutic treats you can use from day to night. Simple, mindfully-designed, and all well within your budget.
The Protect: Defend + Hydrate hand sanitizer, which is a refreshing combination of 70-percent ethyl alcohol and tea tree, peppermint, eucalyptus and lemongrass essential oils, completes the collection.
All For Keeps products have cold-pressed coconut, extra virgin olive oil (EVO) and a blend of 100 percent pure essential oils.
Backed with strong science and packed with good ingredients, the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel is highly recommended for the hot season. It is formulated with Patented Prebiotic technology that boosts skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid by 50 percent and penetrates skin two times deeper for
longer-lasting hydration. By using this product daily as part of your skincare routine, it hydrates your skin from deep within to help achieve glass skin.
“As the number one dermatologist-recommended brand, Neutrogena continuously innovates its products by ensuring that it is always made from scientifically proven ingredients that are effective and safe for our skin,” says Neutrogena brand manager, Patricia Rodriguez.
Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost range is available through the Johnson & Johnson PH official account in Shopee and Lazada. Make sure to add to cart this 6 June 2021 during the Shopee and Lazada mid-year sale!
Boosted top-to-toe care
Another reliable brand, Nivea, has come up with “extra” good-for-you ingredients in its whitening range.
The Nivea Extra White Lotion contains skin superfoods like Camu Camu and Acerola Cherry that works 50 times harder to brighten dull and stressed skin leaving your skin healthy, smooth and stress-free. It also has advanced UVA/B filters to protect from daily sun damage.
While other deodorants can stop sweat, they also leave underarms dark and damaged. On the flip side, some promise to whiten and help repair skin damage, but fail to keep body odor and sweat stains away. Nivea Extra White Deodorant provides 48-hour protection from sweat and body odor and is enriched with two times more licorice, vitamins and skin nutrients to help reverse underarm damage.
Nivea Extra White MicellAIR Cleanser, meanwhile, has 10 times Oxygen Boost to repair skin damage and zero alcohol, paraben, silicone, colorants and fragrance for clean, healthy and fresh skin.
Find these on Shopee, Lazada and BeautyMNL.
Three easy steps
to brighter skin
Hydrated, healthy skin responds better and faster to beauty products and treatments, says Hada Labo, the No. 1 facial lotion in Japan for 13 consecutive years.
Hada Labo was not available in the Philippines before 2019. Skin care enthusiasts had to buy their favorite Hada Labo products in Japan or ask someone to get it for them there.
Since Hada Labo’s Philippine launch in 2019, skin-conscious Filipinos have relied on the hydrating powers of the brand’s products to give them the soft, hydrated and bouncy skin of their dreams.
Finally, Hada Labo brings a second skincare collection to the country. Hada Labo Premium Whitening Range harnesses the hydrating power of the skincare product and combines it with a Brightening effect for visibly clearer and bouncier skin with a youthful glow.
The Hada Labo Premium Whitening Range combines three types of Hyaluronic Acid and natural and gentle brightening ingredients such as Arbutin and Vitamins C Phosphate and E to deeply hydrate and brighten your skin tone.
Tranexamic acid is the active ingredient in the Hada Labo Premium Whitening Range. Tranexamic acid addresses skin discoloration problems such as melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and redness.
The Premium Whitening Lotion, which is used after cleansing and before moisturizing, is the flagship product in the range. This watery lotion is formulated with Tranexamic Acid to help brighten and prevent dark spots, while Vitamins C and E offer protection against free radical damage. To help skin retain moisture, it’s also been formulated with concentrated hyaluronic acid.
The Hada Labo Arbutin Whitening Face Wash not only removes dirt from pores. It also purifies for a clearer, brighter complexion. It contains Arbutin and plant extracts to help restore and optimize skin’s evenness for visibly fair and radiant skin. This face wash is skin pH-balanced for low irritation.
If you want to try the products first, get the Premium Whitening Trial Set which includes Premium Whitening Wash (12g), Premium Whitening Lotion (30ml) and Premium Whitening Cream (14g). All products do not contain mineral oil, alcohol, colorants and fragrances.
Find Hada Labo at selected Watsons retail stores nationwide and the following e-commerce platforms: https://www.watsons.com.ph; Mentholatum Flagship Store, Lazada https://www.lazada.com.ph/shop mentholatum?from=onesearch_brand_11391; and Mentholatum Flagship Store, Shopee https://shopee.ph/mentholatum.
GynePro Ultra Protection Feminine Wash is specially formulated with Chlorhexidine digluconate which gives it twice better bacteria killing action versus other feminine wash brands. It’s also clinically tested and prescribed by OB-GYNEs to help protect against feminine area vulnerabilities aside from menstrual period concerns. Unlike daily feminine washes, GynePro Ultra Protection Feminine Wash has tri-power protection that keeps bacteria causing odor, itching and irritation away during that time of the month.
GynePro Ultra Protection Feminine Wash (P73 for 60ml; P163 for 150ml) is available in all leading drugstores and supermarkets and online via Shopee and Lazada under UL Skin Sciences Inc. Follow @gynepro on Instagram and #ConquerRedDays.
