Hello Glow is the #1 skin care set brand in the Philippines

According to the latest Beauty and Personal Care 2022 report by Euromonitor International, a London-based market research company, Hello Glow is listed as the #1 top ranking brand for skin care set for two years in a row.

The market research firm discloses Hello Glow’s market share at 51.7% and 52.7% in 2020 and 2021 respectively; overtaking multinational brands like Nu Skin, Avon, Shiseido and Loreal in this category.

Ever Bilena Cosmetics, Inc.’s Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Denice Sy-Munez founded the brand in February 2020, just before the country went into lockdown.

“We saw that there was demand for a safe and credible option for rejuvenating sets and sold the set first through direct sales dealers and resellers,” says Sy-Munez, who started the brand with only one product – the Hello Glow All-Natural Whitening Set, which sold over a million sets in its launch year.

Hello Glow has since released three additional variants under the skin care set category; namely the Advanced Rejuvenating Set, the Acne Defense Set, and the Blemish Miracle Set.

Hello Glow’s unique selling point? All of the brand’s skin care sets are dermatologist-recommended and have undergone clinical testing to ensure efficacy. “The skin sets do not contain any hidden FDA-banned ingredients, we are FDA-compliant and the label is as transparent as it can be!” adds Sy-Munez.

The brand has been recognized on multiple occasions by international award giving bodies as well. Hello Glow has won Gold from the 2021 IPRA (International Public Relations Association) Golden World Awards for an all digital campaign, while Sy-Munez was the Gold Winner at 2022 TITAN Business Awards for Beauty & Cosmetics as founder for Hello Glow.

Hello Glow is available in thousands of touch points. The brand is carried by over 20,000 registered resellers nationwide, and is distributed across 5,000+ physical retail outlets including department stores, drug stores, supermarkets, and convenience stores.

Hello Glow: Safe and easy exfoliation tips to restore skin’s healthy glow

pastedGraphic.png

Hello Glow Skin Purifying Peeling Gel

Exfoliation, or the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to make way for smoother skin cells, is one of the best ways to improve the skin’s texture and tone. What’s even better with exfoliating is it can be safely and easily done at home!

Here are some tips to help you effectively exfoliate to reveal a softer, smoother, and healthier skin:

Cleanse first before exfoliating.  Exfoliation of dry skin can scrub away the healthy skin cells. Before applying exfoliating products, it is important to cleanse the skin with lukewarm water to remove makeup and slightly open up the pores so the skin can absorb active ingredients and nutrients better.

Exfoliate in the morning. The skin repairs itself overnight, potentially leaving a layer of dead skin cells waiting to be removed. Because of this, it is ideal to exfoliate your skin in the morning to slough away remaining dead skin cells.

Exfoliate gently. Exfoliating too hard or using harsh washcloths can lead to irritation and skin dryness. To safely exfoliate your face and body, use gentle, circular motions to help pull blackheads and remove dirt.  Avoid exfoliating if you have open cuts, wounds or sunburn to prevent skin damage.

Use the right products. Make sure to use a safe and gentle exfoliating product. If you are still looking for a product that has a gentle formula but can remove dead skin cells and other pore-clogging impurities, try using the new Hello Glow Skin Purifying Peeling Gel. It is formulated with salicylic acid which unclogs pores that causes blackheads and whiteheads and helps remove red inflamed pimples. It also contains papaya extract which reduces the appearance of large pores and lightens dark spots. Hello Glow Skin Purifying Peeling Gel visibly exfoliates when massaged into the skin and can also be used to exfoliate the face and body.

Tone and moisturize. To close your pores after exfoliating, you can use a gentle oil-fighting cleanser. After cleansing, make sure you use a toner and moisturizer to help your skin regain moisture and look glowing.

Reveal that fresh glow and improve the health and texture of your skin by following these tips and by using Hello Glow Skin Purifying Peeling Gel. 

Hello Glow Skin Purifying Peeling Gel is available at Hello Glow’s official page on Lazada (www.lazada.com.ph) and Shopee (www.shopee.ph).and in leading supermarkets and department stores nationwide.

Garnier launches Green Beauty in the Philippines

  • The L’Oreal Group is advancing on its 2030 sustainability commitments with an end-to-end approach to sustainability that aims to reduce environmental impact in beauty retail.
  • Garnier leads the sustainability movement in the beauty sector as the first beauty brand to launch sustainable e-commerce packaging in the Philippines

Philippines, 23 October 2020 – Under the L’Oréal Group’s global sustainability targets geared towards fighting climate change, sustainable water management, respecting biodiversity and the preservation of natural resources, Garnier launches Green Beauty – an end-to-end approach to sustainability in beauty retail aimed at reducing its environmental impact at every stage of the value chain – from education, purchasing and recycling. 

“The past few months has been a very exciting journey for us at L’Oréal, as we accelerated our transformation to creating a more sustainable world for beauty, with a focus on environmental stewardship and social empowerment. Green Beauty is our springboard to get our partners, and most especially our consumers, involved in this important cause. We believe that through collective action, we can meet our bold ambitions faster, and give our consumers the information to make more sustainable choices,” said Supriya Singh, Country Managing Director of L’Oréal Philippines.

 Garnier is driving the wheel for L’Oréal’s sustainability endeavours, ensuring products contain more than 90% natural origin ingredients, certified organic product ranges, and vegan formulas. The green beauty brand will be championing sustainable eCommerce through Green Parcel, Green Spaces and Sachet Recycling with in-store retail partners and will continue to push for the empowerment of consumers through Green Education. 

Addressing eCommerce Packaging Waste with Green Parcel 

In partnership with Shopee, Sain Bags and Econest, Garnier is the first beauty brand to launch sustainable e-commerce packaging made of honeycomb, cassava starch and other biodegradable materials. Each purchase made from the official Garnier store on Shopee will be specially packed using eco-friendly sources and materials to reduce their overall packaging footprint. 

As an alternative to bubble wraps, Garnier has partnered with EcoNest Philippines for the use of the Geami honeycomb protective packaging solution. The patented 3D die cut paper is made from FSC certified virgin kraft paper with an interleaf tissue that provides excellent surface protection to prevent possible damages and abrasion when wrapping and handling parcels. The recycling rate of paper at 85.6% greatly outweighs the recycling rate of plastics at 42%. Not only will it take the honeycomb material 2-6 weeks to biodegrade in nature, but this eco-friendly alternative is also fully renewable which makes it one of the most sustainable solutions available in the market.

In partnership with SainBags, the packaging will be made from cassava that are made from cassava starch and other materials from renewable resources. It is biodegradable and compostable, leaving no toxic residues and causing no damage to our oceans, waterways, land and is harmless to animals and plants. It can safely return to nature in the form of H2O and CO2, and in turn feeds our agriculture, making it part of a truly sustainable lifecycle. It does not contain a trace of plastic, therefore, do not contribute to the micro-plastics problem and takes around 90 days to compost in soil or a body of water, as opposed to hundreds of years for a regular PE bag.  

“Our constant search for innovation and reinvention of consumer experience fuels us at Garnier to lead the change in creating a sustainable world of beauty. By assessing how we work and the key areas of our value chain where we can find more sustainable alternatives, we can create a positive impact on the environment and give our consumers a better and more holistic beauty experience,” shared Isabel Falco, Marketing Director of Garnier and L’Oréal Paris Philippines.

“We are deeply honored and excited to partner with the L’Oreal Group on this transformative journey. This is our first partnership with a brand to help further their goals on sustainability. We hope that their global thrust will kickstart a new culture of sustainability in beauty retail and e-tail that will inspire real change across industries. Shopee will provide our utmost support to make this Green Beauty campaign meaningful and successful. With the delivery of every Green Parcel, we also hope to inspire consumers in The Philippines to start thinking about how they can play a role in sustainability, and collectively raise awareness on this important issue,” said Ruoshan Tao, Head of Marketing of Shopee Philippines.

The growth of eCommerce has transcended consumer and industry market expectations during the first few months of lockdown in the Philippines and continues to grow in popularity. Digital consumerism has become a precedent, and with the demand for more accountability across industries, Garnier takes great responsibility in providing consumers with sustainable choices, in hopes to inspire others to act with them. 

Sustainable In-Store Experience and Recycling Initiatives 

Garnier aims to extend the sustainability experience to its retail partners and shoppers. The brand deploys hundreds of in-store modules such as product hangers and side bins every year to reduce plastic waste. With the Green Spaces initiative, Garnier has taken a sustainable approach in producing different merchandising materials and point-of-sales collaterals by using recycled and recyclable materials. These materials are found in more than 230 stores nationwide. 

Working towards incremental change in recycling habits and reducing waste, Garnier is working hand in hand with Mercury Drug and Plastic Flamingo for a sachet collection drive. Customers are encouraged to return used sachets by dropping it in Garnier stations in Mercury Drug branches in Metro Manila. Collected sachets will be recycled to build emergency houses in partnership with Plastic Flamingo 

Educating Consumers to make informed Choices with Green Education 

Committed to engaging customers, suppliers and partners in the Group’s transformation process, Garnier has taken the lead by partnering with Edukasyon PH, the largest EdTech platform for the Filipino youth, in developing modules focused on the education of sustainability, co-created for the Green Education Program. Through integrating concrete sustainability practices, Garnier aims provide a better understanding of sustainability and empower consumers to make more informed choices.

“Green Education marks the beginning of efforts to empower people with important knowledge and practices on sustainability. We will take on greater responsibility, engage our entire ecosystem and demonstrate that companies can be part of the solution to the pressing challenges the world is facing. We are looking forward to seeing more partnerships come into fruition in the next few months and be able to contribute to creating a sustainable and beautiful world for everyone,” Singh shared.

 

About L’Oréal’s sustainability commitments: we are not starting from scratch

Very early on, L’Oréal became aware of the need to respond to environmental challenges. As an industrial company, it decided that tackling the environmental impact of its plants and distribution centers was the most obvious first step, and a necessary one, to begin its transformation process. This first phase is nearly completed. 

  • Since 2005, the Group has reduced the CO2 emissions of its plants and distribution centers by 78% in absolute terms, exceeding its initial target of 60% by 2020, while production volume increased by 37% over the same period. 
  • At the end of 2019, L’Oréal had 35 carbon neutral sites (meaning they use 100% renewable energy), including 14 factories.

In 2013, L’Oréal decided to address the core of its activity: the development of beauty products, its global sustainability programme Sharing Beauty With All, announcing tangible sustainability goals towards 2020. At its core laid an innovative tool known as SPOT (for Sustainable Product Optimization Tool), made to assess and improve the environmental and social performance of products across all brands. Sustainability is now fully integrated into the design process of the Group’s new products, from the earliest stages. 

  • 85% of products created or renovated in 2019 had an improved environmental and social profile. 
  • By end of 2019, L’Oréal has helped 90,635 people from disadvantaged communities find employment through the solidarity purchasing and inclusion programs.
  • L’Oréal is the only company in the world to have achieved an “A” score in all three CDP rankings – climate protection, water management, forest preservation – for 4 years in a row.

Skinfinite Beauty Review

Skinfinite beauty just launched this year by Actress and Entrepreneur, JANNA DOMIGUEZ and it was her dream to have her own skinline. She grew up using turmeric soap and that’s how it all started. For me since I grew up in the middle east, tumeric soaps are a holy grail in the region because it has so many  benefits. A lot of people say, it lightens skin tone and other’s say it treats certain skin conditions.

SKINFINITE BEAUTY TUMERIC BLEACHING SOAP, a multifunctional soap that gently exfoliates skin to help reduce acne and skin blemishes, resulting to brighter and luminous appearance. For me compared to the other turmeric soaps that I used, this one I think you can save a lot if you cut in small cubes so it won’t melt right away but every time I step out of the shower I feel fresh and I notice my skin lightens.

 

INSTAWHITE MIRACLE CREAM WITH TURMERIC AND AHA, this looks more powdery, thicker in consistency and comes in 50 grams. It has this fruity scent that is so calming. This product claims to exfoliate skin making it brighter. It contains tumeric which prevents break outs, reduce acne scars and brighten dark circles.The MIRACLE CREAM also improves oxygen in the skin making skin look younger.

I’ve been raving to try the SKINFINITE ANTI-AGING SERUM with sparkling glass skin and botox instant effect. First, all the words in the product got me hooked. The consistency reminds me of unicorn tears in clear solution and the smell reminds me of a familiar childhood candy (melon/pomelo) scent which I love! How to apply it, You apply a sufficient amount on your fingertips then apply and massage on your face. I would even use a jade roller after for more absorption of the product.  The next day, my skin feels soft and moisturized.  This anti aging serum claims to hydrate, moisturize and lightens skin. Contains antioxidant and anti aging properties which helps reduce appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It contains – ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE (Hydration), GLYCYRRHIZA GLARBRA (LICORICE) EXTRACT (reduce appearance of dark spots), HONEY (anti bacterial and anti oxidant), NANNOCHLOROPSIS OCCULATA EXTRACT (skin tightening), MENTHOL (cooling agent), NIACINAMIDE (treat uneven skin tone), TOCOPHERYL ACETATE (anti oxidant).

INSTAWHITE MIRACLE CREAM WITH TURMERIC AND AHA, this looks more powdery, thicker in consistency and comes in 50 grams. It has this fruity scent that is so calming. This product claims to exfoliate skin making it brighter. It contains tumeric which prevents break outs, reduce acne scars and brighten dark circles.The MIRACLE CREAM also improves oxygen in the skin making skin look younger.

SKINFINITE BEAUTY RENEW SET, says RESULTS IN JUST 7 DAYS. I haven’t reached the 7 day mark yet. Hope to make a follow up when I can but so far so good. I noticed how mild the scent of the products are. It doesn’t have that annoying strong scent. I noticed that especially when I used the instawhite toner and I like how controlled the amount of product you can pour out from the container. Hope I made a point on that. The sunblock is powdery and I love the musky scent when you apply it, it feels full coverage and thick then afterwards your skin feels soft. In  the set it also comes with a instawhite cream which has a more thinner consistency compared to the instawhite miracle cream and their signature turmeric soap

HOW TO APPLY?

MORNING

  • Turmeric bleaching soap
  • Instawhite toner
  • Sunblock

NIGHT

  • Turmeric bleaching soap

Strokes was founded by Moimoi Supe and he says that “I am proud to finally introduce to you products that embody the remarkable brow artistry and precision that Strokes is known for and will now bring to the world”

I’ve personally used the products recently and I love it. It’s a given that I was born with thick brows, It enhanced my brows on another level.

In terms of price range it’s affordable less than PHP 500 each and it gives you that “luxe feeling”, lightweight and it gives your money’s worth. What makes them different, is that it contains ingredients such as Vitamin C, Hydrolyzed Rice Proteins and Hyaluronic compounds to hydrate skin, stimulate hair growth, boost collagen and protects hair.

Brow sculptor duo, PHP 379 (Shade variants: warm brown, deep brown, soft brown and ash brown).  Both ends you get a brow pencil and a spoolie. This product is thin and feels so light but it has a lot of product. The pencil creates a very thin, light and fine swatch.

Brow painter, PHP 498 (Shade ash brown). It’s smudge proof,  long-wearing and the ash brown is suitable for all skin types. I like using this filling in sparse parts of my brows. When you shake it, it feels like it’s so full of ink.

Brow colorist, PHP 358 (Shade variants: Neutral brown, coal black and lucid white). This tinting pomade builds color and volume. I personally love to apply this at the front portion of my eyebrows – tip from @jellyeugenio

Microblade Pen Perfector, PHP 498(Shade variant: Graphite and Bronzite). It’s a bleed-proof and long- wearing brow detailing pen that can mimic hair strands-thin and defined.

Brow fixer PHP 398 (Shade variant: clear) Strong-holding and long wearing invisible brow gel that instantly shapes and sets hair in place.

Creating A Sustainable and Beautiful Future for All: L’Oréal Philippines Announces Local Sustainability Roadmap Aligned with the Group’s Bold, Global 2030 Targets

Philippines, 23 July 2020 – L’Oréal Philippines today announced its roadmap in contribution to the Group’s global sustainability targets. In collaboration with local stakeholders and partners, the Group’s focus areas for the Philippines are sustainable e-commerce, consumer empowerment and education through Green Beauty, and social empowerment through the nationwide expansion of its beauty education program, Beauty For A Better Life. 

“L’Oréal has put sustainability as a fundamental priority. Our commitments towards 2030 mark the beginning of a more radical transformation and embody our view as to what a company’s vision, purpose and responsibilities should be, to meet the challenges facing the world,” said Supriya Singh, Country Managing Director of L’Oréal Philippines.

“In the Philippines we aim to make the most impact in the areas of environmental stewardship and social empowerment. Our sustainability commitment will embark our teams, our partners and our consumers – and through our collective impact, we aim to create a more sustainable world for beauty,” adds Carmel Valencia, Head of Corporate Communication of L’Oréal Philippines.

Transforming L’Oréal’s business to respect “planetary boundaries”

In the context of growing environmental and social challenges, L’Oréal is accelerating its transformation towards a model respecting planetary boundaries and reinforcing its commitments across the following specific areas: fighting climate change, sustainable water management, respecting biodiversity and the preservation of natural resources, all in accordance with what scientific experts demand and grounded on what the planet needs.  

As concrete examples of what L’Oréal wants to achieve: by 2025, all of the Group’s manufacturing, administrative and research sites will reach carbon neutrality by improving energy efficiency and using 100% renewable energy and by 2030, 100% of the plastics used in L’Oréal’s products’ packaging will be either from recycled or bio-based sources. 

Moreover, the Group will be dedicating €50 million to finance damaged natural marine and forest ecosystems restoration projects through a fund called the L’Oréal Fund for Nature Regeneration and another €50 million will be directed to financing projects linked to the circular economy

Empowering L’Oréal’s consumers to make sustainable consumption choices 

L’Oréal has also affirmed its commitments to engaging its customers, suppliers and partners in the Group’s transformation process.  To empower its consumers to make more sustainable choices, L’Oréal has launched its Product Environmental & Social Impact Labelling endorsed by independent scientific experts, which is a world-first that rates products from A (world class for sustainability) to E based on their environmental impact, for areas including carbon footprint and manufacturing processes.

The first brand to implement the new methodology as of 2020 is Garnier for its hair care products. This labelling will progressively be extended to other countries, L’Oréal’s brands and product categories. 

A Greater Commitment to Addressing Social Challenges 

Commitment to social inclusion, and the economic empowerment of women have become the bedrock of some of the most active advocacies for the L’Oréal Group – globally and in the Philippines. The expansion of their beauty education program, Beauty for a Better Life, is also part of their ongoing commitment to ensuring women in the most underprivileged circumstances are provided means to regain their confidence and self-respect, to enhance their skill-set and are empowered to reintegrate back into society and gain employment or be self-employed. “Our dedication to social empowerment will see the expansion of our livelihood and inclusion commitments and the economic empowerment of women – fundamental advocacies that remain at the heart of our nation’s biggest challenges,” Valencia added. 

Moreover, the Group will be spearheading new programs and partnerships geared towards taking even greater responsibility to address some of today’s most pressing social challenges. L’Oréal Philippines will be cementing key programs with Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), which is one of the brand’s long-standing partners for 10 years and running. 

On a global level, L’Oréal created a €50 million charitable endowment fund, which will support field organizations and local charities in their efforts to fight poverty, help women achieve social and professional integration, provide emergency assistance to refugee and disabled women, prevent violence against women, and support victims. 

Garnier and the Power of “Green Beauty”

“Garnier aims to go further and commit to Green Beauty, an end-to-end approach to sustainability that is set to transform the brand, helping to reduce their environmental impact at every stage of its value chain. We are fuelled by the vision to constantly innovate and reinvent the consumer experience and to empower every consumer to make more informed, sustainable choices,” said Isabel Falco, Marketing Director of Garnier and L’Oréal Paris Philippines.

Garnier plans to launch in the Philippines its Green Parcel and Green Spaces initiatives, and will be championing a Green Education program together with its partners.

Garnier has been at the forefront of powering L’Oréal’s sustainability endeavours. Their products contain more than 90% natural origin ingredients, certified organic product ranges, and vegan formulas. Garnier has also ensured that packaging is made from recycled plastic and is more recyclable, with an end goal to use Zero Virgin Plastic by 2025. In the pipeline are also the inauguration of their Green Stores and Green Parcel initiatives, as well as their Green Education to continue providing an opportunity for consumers to make informed and sustainable choices.

“We will take on greater responsibility, engage our entire ecosystem and demonstrate that companies can be part of the solution to the challenges the world is facing. Our goal is that through this in-depth transformation, we hope to be a catalyst of change in the beauty sector and beyond, and to inspire our partners, our customers and all people to take action with us,” Ms. Singh shares.
