Beauty vows to save the Earth

Two of the most eco-conscious and earth-friendly beauty brands celebrated Earth Day with record-breaking news:

With the success of The Body Shop’s Rainforest Hair Care range in 2010, the brand proudly brings us yet another product range called the Earth Lovers. This product line features a 100 percent biodegradable shower gel that has a non-drying formula that promises to be good to your skin and to Mother Earth. Free of sulphates, colorants and parabens, the Earth Lovers shower gel line is made from a soap-free base that gives you smooth and soft skin after every wash. Choose from seven variants: Lemon & Thyme, Mint & Cucumber, Watermelon & Eucalyptus, Fig & Rosemary, Pear & Lemongrass, Apricot & Basil, and Fragrance-Free.

Kiehl’s debuts its iconic customer representative lab coat—made from Bionic Yarn. The latest upcycling technology, Bionic Yarn boasts of premium yarns and fabrics made with fibers derived from plastic bottles. Though made from plastic, each lab coat offers the same high-quality cotton look and feel of the classic version.

Pharrell Williams, with partners Tyson Toussant and Tim Coombs, owns a New York City-based company named Returns Textiles that is responsible for the Bionic Yarn technology. “When I became a partner in Return Textiles, it was my goal to use the fabric technology to partner with other like-minded companies to find ways to do good for our planet. Kiehl’s has a long history of taking both small and big measures to reduce waste, and inspiring others to do so,” shares Pharrell Williams.

Holy Week is all about recharging our mind, body and spirit.  And this week of rest, why don't you treat yourself with a hair treatment (at a discounted price) at Azta Urban Salon? :)

Davines Nounou Pak Treatment heals dry, brittle hair and split ends—perfect for those who are always out in the sun.  Active ingredients like Olive Butter that nourishes, softens and protects hair, and Jojoba Oil that gives your hair that extra boost of shine, among others, make this an extra intensive repair mask.

How could anyone resist this tempting offer of P449+?  I just had to try it myself, so off I went to their Eastwood branch:

While waiting for the Nounou pack to work its magic:

I had my eyebrows threaded, and I must say, their attendant had superb hands. It didn't hurt one bit!

And look what I found while checking out their services menu?
You can bring in your own vials/tubs/tubes of hair color and treatments, and just pay for their application services.  How cool is that? Click on the photo to zoom in on the prices:  

After an hour and a half, I'm done with my NouNou pack treatment.

My hair feels light and refreshed after the treatment. It's just what the doctor ordered for my stressful week that time—I had these a few days before we opened F21 in SM Makati ;)

Thin, Lean and Bright

I recently had lunch with Ms. O of Samsung and her colleagues, and this is what was on my mind when they presented to me (along with Jenni Epperson and Isha Andaya of Stylebible.ph): There’s a new laptop in town. It’s sleek, sexy and powerful and it just might give that “other” laptop a run for its money.

The Samsung Philippines team proudly showed off their latest baby, the Samsung Series 9 Notebook, as the world’s thinnest measuring only 16.3mm (0.64 inches) in depth, with a screen size of 13 inches. It’s also the lightest, weighing only 1.31 kg. (2.88 lbs.), with a ‘SuperBright Plus’ display screen with LED technology to boot, making it the brightest. And the packaging? The Samsung Series 9 Notebook is encased in the most advanced duralumin metal alloy (that’s only used in specialized aircrafts) that makes it durable yet stylish and ultra light.

Along with the much-awaited release, Samsung has commissioned three of the country’s best designers in coming up with a special collection based on the brand’s latest notebook.

Randy Ortiz will be presenting a set of gowns based on the “thinnest” aspect, with the red carpet theme in mind: “Every time I choose a gadget, the first thing that attracts me is the aesthetics. The Samsung Series 9 Notebook is very fashionable and stylish. So, I was inspired to do the thinnest collection which consists of stunning silhouettes and beautiful flow of garments.”

Rhett Eala’s collection is all about feeling light. He uses soft fabrics such as tulle, lace and chiffon, obviously inspired by the multi-awarded movie, Black Swan. "Using the Samsung Series 9 Notebook is an experience itself. And I wanted to capture that experience in my collection. My collection will make you feel good, beautiful and sexy, the same experience as using the Samsung Series 9 gives," explains Eala.

Fitness is his latest obsession, which is why Rajo Laurel worked with brights for his athletic-inspired set. “The emotion that I want to evoke is FUN. I want this collection to be happy, vibrant, and energetic. We're about to hit summer so I want to be able to capture that excitement."

"Truly only the best for the best in Samsung. Samsung has focused its efforts on ensuring that its laptops offer truly comprehensive mobile experiences," said Hannah Francisco, NPC Product Manager of IT-SEPCO. "This is why we are creating not just the best in design with the country's top designers but the best in display offering our customers a complete and comprehensive notebook that meets all of their needs with one premium device with the series 9."

Too bad I wasn't able to attend this fabulous show, as I had other duties that night.  It's always a treat to see designer shows :D  It was so nice of Samsung's digital arm, Propel Manila, to send me this link below.

What do you think of the laptop and the clothes? :D

Lighter Side of Olay

A week before Forever 21 opened in SM Makati, Olay launched their latest soap bar at the same venue.  Of course, Forever 21 provided the clothes for the event, with Ms. Ana Kalaw presenting tips and the latest trends to the guests:

Childhood schoolmate Tim Yap was one of the hosts, along with Andi9 of Magic 89.9

Got to hang a bit with Meg's Peewee Reyes-Isidro and JR Isaac.  Love the bangs ;)

Food was delicious (by Epicurious catering)—I was too full though, and only got to try their truffle lasagna which was yummy!  Olay soap bars were also displayed at the event:

Along with talks by stylist Ana Kalaw and photographer Pat Dy, the main program of the event was the presentation of Olay's latest endorser, Kim Chiu

Celebs now do really know how to dress up for events ;)

I met Kim Chiu when she was about to enter PBB-Teen Edition the night before. I styled all the participants and got to know all of them for a few minutes in their rooms back then.  So touched that Kim Chiu still remembers me :)

Olay also launched a fabulous promo:
Buy Olay products worth P1,500 at any Watsons or SM Department Store Beauty Section and get a limited edition Olay X Enjoy kit for free.  The kit is worth P1,500 and it's yours for free :D

Only 2,000 pieces are produced, so better head to Watsons or SM Department Store Beauty Section NOW ;)  Congrats to the Olay team for a wonderful launch.
