Discover the new beauty and wellness essentials that you didn’t know you needed
The latest products that are making self-care a full-body agenda
With sexual wellness entering mainstream beauty, buying your first intimate product can be embarrassing and downright confusing. But sisters and cousins Isabelle Daza, Ava Daza, and Martine Ho are here to take out that embarrassment, and create a safe space around sex and pleasure with their latest brand JELLYTIME. The first product they launched is an all-natural water-based personal lubricant (P295) that one can enjoy alone or with a partner. Made with water, aloe vera, and hyaluronic acid, it’s not too sticky, not too thick, and gives a comfortable and cooling feel. It’s also made with citric acid for a PH-balanced formula. Plus, it comes in a chic and minimalist squeeze bottle that won’t raise eyebrows when you leave it on your nightstand.
Perfect for those who want to streamline their shower routine, SNAILWHITE’s Pink Vitamin C Micellar Soap (P119) will leave your skin clean but never tight and dry. Once wet, it has a creamy lather that you can use to double cleanse your face and body. It’s made with bamboo water and rich micellar foam that absorbs dirt and excess oil without stripping off your skin’s natural moisture. Snail mucin– the main ingredient found in their best-selling products–is also mixed into its formula to promote collagen and elastin production for a healthier skin barrier. Lastly, vitamin C brightens and evens out your skin tone, and helps protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals.
The absolute must-have make up to achieve luminous skin
Want to achieve that glass skin on your favorite Korean actresses and stars? MAC Cosmetics Lightful C3 Collection is back, and it’s bigger and brighter than ever. Fronted by their global
ambassador, Lisa of the popular K-pop band BlackPink, the revamped line is composed of skincare and makeup that focus on giving your skin a lasting, glowing radiance. The collection uses three main ingredients across the line: vitamin C, coral grass, and cherry blossom. Over time, these ingredients will help skin stay protected and hydrated, and appear smoother, plumped, and more toned and radiant. Popular favorites are the Quick Finish Cushion Compact SPF 50/PA++++ (P2550) and Coral Grass Tinted Primer SPF44/PA++++ (P2700), both of which are infused with a blend of pink pearls—for an immediate natural and rosy look.
On The Glow
You can now achieve the other-worldly glow of Gigi Hadid and Shay Mitchell. The popular celebrity makeup artist, Patrick Ta launched his namesake beauty brand in 2020. Now, the makeup line is finally available in the Philippines! With his signature style of gleaming skin that doesn’t just stop at the jawline, his products quickly made it to every makeup artist and beauty enthusiast’s arsenal, specifically the Major Headlines Double-Take Cream & Powder Blush in “She’s So LA” (P1960). It’s a silky, buttery smooth cream and powder blush that delivers beautiful color pay-off and the most incredible luminosity. Equally great is the Major Brow Shaping Wax (P1270) that can untangle and brush up the unruliest hair for that seamless, feathered look. It also comes in gorgeous rose-gold packaging for an all-around glamorous experience.
