As anticipated, December is full of presents when it comes to the beauty world.
I noticed that part of what makes a good beauty brand is how they are conscientious about the experience by doing away with the frills and giving you what’s essential.
This week, French brand Laboratoires FillMed officially launched in the Philippines. I’m proud to be among of its ambassadors, who include Rhian Ramos, Katrina Razon, Dr. Vicki Belo and Patricia Santos.
It’s one of the pioneering lines when it comes to professional skin care: “FillMed has dedicated itself to the development of antiaging products using hyaluronic acid and other powerful active ingredients. It’s made by experts for the experts: surgeons, dermatologists and aesthetic practitioners.”
I’ve long been familiar with the brand because of Belo Medical Group. I’ve previously discussed how I love the NCTF (New Cellular Treatment Factor). The formula uses the power of hyaluronic acid, vitamins, amino acids and minerals. It can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and bring back radiance while getting rid of dullness. Before, I would even get it done even before dinner sometimes, since there’s no downtime.
One of my holy grail items from Laboratoires FillMed is the Glycopeel Mask. I keep it on my nightstand, as it resurfaces, exfoliates and brightens. Key ingredients include glycolic acid, phytic acid, and a soothing complex made of provitamin B5, allantoin and polysaccharide.
My next favorite is from Strokes Beauty Lab. They introduced The Velvet Click Stick Collection. There are nine lip colors: Contessa (universal nude), Cameo (warm orange nude), Flamingo (warm pink nude), Vittoria (clay maroon shade), Teresa (classic nude mauve), Lady Luck (mid-tone pink mauve), Spice (red taupe shade), Copperhead (red cocoa brown) and Viper (intense red cherry).
What I like is how the lipsticks contain vitamin E, squalane and sunflower seed oil so your lips get some TLC, as well.
Unique to the product is the packaging. The click stick makes sure you only get the right amount of lipstick you need. Sarah Lahbati is the face of this campaign.
Time indoors has led me to focus on a few things we’ve usually missed out on, like our scalp. Innersense’s True Enlightenment Scalp Scrub gently exfoliates to give comforting hydration and soothe irritation.
This might be what you need if you’re seeking a little bit more for your hair care routine apart from shampoo, conditioner and hair mask. This scalp scrub preps you for your next steps. It preps your hair from the roots with Hawaiian red sea salt, sunflower seed oil and tea tree oil to calm any sensitivity. Celery seed extract soothes irritation, while apple fruit gives you hydration. INQ
