The Future of Phones with VIVO

When young global smartphone brand Vivo entered the mobile industry, the
market was dominated by two or three names. But in a matter of years, Vivo
changed the game.
Vivo has been determined to break barriers and introduce technology that
ushered the industry into the future. After all, it was Vivo that introduced a
20-megapixel dual front camera in V5 Plus and a 24MP front camera in V7,
V7+, and V9
The V5 is the first smartphone with a 20MP camera.
The V5 was then followed by the release of the V5Plus (left) and V5s (right), both with 20MP selfie camera. The V5Plus, meanwhile, has a 20MP+8MP dual rear camera.
Aside from the selfie camera, Vivo also paid attention to the users’ need for a bigger screen. Earlier this year, Vivo released the ultimate iteration of a concept smartphone, the APEX™ FullView™, which nearly has a 100% screen-to-body display. The V9, Vivo’s newest flagship, is getting closer to goal with its 90% screen-to-body ratio. Vivo is also the first to introduce the in-display fingerprint scanner that gives users another method to unlock their smartphones.
Vivo then introduced the first smartphones with 24MP front camera, the V7+ (left) and V7 (right).
Vivo then released the upgrade to its cameras, the V9 with a 24MP AI Selfie Camera and 16MP+5MP dual rear camera.
It is still a wonder what Vivo will do next. For instance, it wowed the tech world with its bezel-less APEX concept smartphone because of its pop-up selfie camera to achieve the 100% screen-to-body ratio. Helping the brand unlock the next best thing in the mobile industry are 2,200 dedicated research and development personnel in several R&D centers worldwide—in San Diego, United States and in China, specifically in Shenzhen, Dongguan, Nanjing, Hangzhou, and Beijing. With all its development, it is no doubt that the young smartphone brand is already leading the pack to the future.

I am #Curvalicious with Whisper

Usually when that time of the month comes, Hormones can go crazy but that comes being organically human. 

Being that girl with a crazy schedule, active lifestyle and love spontaneous trips! I dare to #ChooseCurvalicious with @whisperphilippines Cottony soft protection up to 12 hours leakage protection – Nothing holding us back girls and we can do whatever we want! 

So the cottony soft protection got an upgrade from blue to its new pink look. So I’ve tried the regular 23 cm pad (comes with 8 pads in a pack) with wings, It was comfy. Like it says, snuggly fit – you know sometimes when you place a napkin it goes eitherways. Whisper cottony soft protection has that Stick n’ secure feature and has anti leak barriers. I usually use heavy flow pads epsecially the first 2 days of my period (STRONG TIMES). When I got my whisper pack, luckily it was my 4th day so It’s perfectly fine for me to use a regular pad especially during the day. It’s “CURVALICIOUS DESIGN” fits sunggly to prevent leaks and helps soothe skin because made of Dermcare™ lotion.  

Whisper did still stick to the floral aesthetic design (wrap and strip) and the pad itself still got the basic look. I couldn’t recall the previous design because I used the other kind (whisper clean and dry). 

In all fairness upon using it for 12 hrs, It didn’t feel lumpy- you know girls what I mean. Lastly, another important thing I did not experience any skin reactions because that’s what I consider most  a GOOD pad.

. The event was even made more special since acoustic balladeer TJ Monterde, KZ’s equally talented boyfriend and fellow Vivo endorser, performed for the event. He sang his own compositions, “Tulad Mo,” “Kahit Kunwari,” and “Ikaw at Ako.” TJ also had nothing but praises for her girlfriend as she introduced her on stage and encouraged the mallgoers to cheer KZ on. “KZ deserves a loud crowd,” he said.

After the pair answered questions from the press and gave away a brand new Vivo V9, they sang their hit duet, “Ikaw at Ako Pa Rin,” which made their fans overjoyed with kilig.

KZ and TJ then went around the Perfect Shot, Perfect View Vivo V9 mall tour experience booths and greeted Vivo V9 buyers and their fans after the program. The two also surprised mallgoers when they dropped by the Vivo kiosk at the SM Cyberzone.

KZ has been a proud Vivo endorser since September 2017. She has also been active in joining Vivo in its mall tours and activities since then. TJ, on the other hand, became a Vivo endorser since May 2017.

Secrets Revealed! Carefree x Laybare

We all have our beliefs and misconceptions when it comes to using panty liners and shaving. Let me break it to you with what I have learned from #SecretsRevealedWithCarefreeXLaybare, Panty liners, girls, should be used EVERYDAY atleast change 2 times a day. For shaving It isn’t true, hair becomes thicker as it grows back. With hygiene, it is simple just keep yourself clean not only the outside but also in the inside, like what Gretchen Ho said LOVE YOURSELF is the most important thing. If you feel great in the inside, everything will follow. 

 We see women talk and share experiences about the best tips on makeup, skincare, and healthy lifestyle habits to keep themselves in tip-top shape. But behind closed doors, we find Filipinas spending many hours taking hidden rituals – intimate beauty secrets – that are undeniably integral to the foundations of their private beauty routines. It proves that for women, feeling beautiful all starts with feeling clean and fresh – especially ‘down there’. Rarely a topic of conversation, girls have been shying away from sharing, and sadly, even merely asking how and why they should take care for their most sensitive part of the body. Without enough opportunities for girls to discover and exchange their grooming secrets, women always feel that intimate hygiene is a restricted subject – but it doesn’t have to be.

This is where CAREFREE® and Lay Bare come in – two of the most trusted brands by Filipinas today that champion intimate grooming – teaming up for the first time to provide a platform that boldly allows women to get real together about their feminine hygiene needs, discover secret care tips for their private area, and ultimately, be proud of the intimate beauty secrets they keep that upgrade their beauty quotient and boost their overall confidence.

“We talked to women and found out that simply looking good is not enough to make them feel empowered and ready to take on anything. At the core of our findings is how feeling fresh and clean ‘down there’ is extremely important for all women to help her feel poised to conquer her endeavors. Just like the right outfit or makeup that makes you look good, the right feminine hygiene makes you feel even better,” said Claire Ericta, Brand Manager for CAREFREE®. “In addition to washing, adopting the daily habit of using CAREFREE® panty liners can help them feel clean and fresh down there throughout the day, everyday. You know that feeling when you have this secret source of confidence and self-assurance? It goes a long way and make women feel invincible to achieve their day-to-day hustle.”

Christine David, Lay Bare’s Senior Manager for Learning & Development and Service Delivery Champion, also echoes how intimate grooming is not just another vanity act but an integral part of hygiene rituals. “A proper intimate hygiene ritual for women does not just guarantee physical cleanliness,” shared David. “Lay Bare has been known for our Brazilian waxing services that help women not just to feel fresh, but provide the utmost hygienic benefits too. Feeling clean and fresh down there also gives you that extra boost of confidence when you feel and look your best as you set out to the world.”      

During the one-day only CAREFREE® x Lay Bare event, CAREFREE®’s Intimate Beauty Ambassador, Gretchen Ho, also took the stage to proudly reveal how her own intimate beauty secrets encourage her confidence while she navigates her transformative twenties as a volleyball star, celebrity host, and most importantly, as a woman. “I’m very happy to be here in this event where we can actually put this in the open because it is so valuable for us Filipinas to be able to take care of our intimate beauty. Because what you feel down there, is what you project to people. If there’s one thing I’ve got be sensitive about its my hygiene, especially down there,” shared Ho.

The CAREFREE® x Lay Bare Intimate Beauty Studio was designed to provide a fun, quirky but educational space for women to know more about intimate beauty grooming, and share their own intimate beauty secrets with others too. For CAREFREE® and Lay Bare, it all begins by pooling together brave and modern women to start the conversation about the personal, and sometimes, secret “rituals” and hygiene needs women deserve to realize and embrace – and today, they are finally taking it on.

Don’t miss your chance to elevate your intimate beauty rituals this February 2018 by visiting participating Lay Bare Waxing Salon branches to avail of free CAREFREE® panty liners. Visit the official Facebook page of CAREFREE® Philippines at www.facebook.com/CarefreePH for more information.
