Celeteque’s Own Cosmetics Line, DERMOCOSMETICS Launched

I have never been into make-up. Save from my regular use of a moisturizer and the occasional use of lipstick and eyeliner, I have never gotten used to wearing make-up at all.  That is why receiving an invite to a make-up launch is kinda new and queer to me. But since it is my favorite skin care brand – Celeteque’s new make-up line being launched, I gladly went.

batch_•CELETEQUE-all products
Celeteque’s new make-up line, the Dermocosmetics, is said to offer the best of both worlds: expert skincare solutions and superior color cosmetics that highlight one’s natural beauty, minus all the fuss.  Having been told that the products are the best make-up line for everyday use, I readily agreed to try out the full skincare regimen for the face, lips, cheeks, and eyes via a make-over courtesy of one of the make-up artists present at the launch, Benjie Angeles (Look him up in FB: Benjie Espina Angeles). 

The result of the trial was happiness! I felt different in a good way. It looks like I got a boost in the beauty department. 😉 What’s more important, the itchy feel that I always have from having a slew of products applied on my face was non-existent. Celeteque after all is a tried and tested brand that takes care of my skin. I bet my blogger friends who were at the launch have similar observations too! Here they are while they are having their own make-over experience:

Right now, I have been regularly using the lipstick (shade in cherry, gives a matte and not too red and not too pink finish)  and the dual cc matte powder (it gives a matte finish, is silky and not too powdery). I am excited to finally be able to use the other products on the line too, that is, as soon as I finish with my makeup 101 tutorial. 😉

While these are relatively new products which may need refinements and improvements down the line, I see that these products are good enough for everyday use by those like me who are just starting to get comfortable putting on and/or wearing makeup. Beauty experts might have a more detailed take on the product and that’s what I am also excited about.

Here are the various products in the Celeteque Dermocosmetics line and its corresponding standard retail price:

Now, the brand is taking it up a notch higher with another pioneering Dermo breakthrough with its new makeup line that fuses cosmetics with skincare: Céleteque DermoCosmetics.

Céleteque DermoCosmetics Takes Over Your Makeup Essentials!
Céleteque DermoCosmetics is perfect for the modern-day woman, as it offers the best of both worlds: expert skincare solutions and superior color cosmetics that highlight one’s natural beauty, minus all the fuss. Céleteque DermoCosmetics offers a full skincare regimen for the face, lips, cheeks, and eyes that protect the skin 24/7, making it the best makeup line for everyday use.

Céleteque DermoCosmetics provides anti-aging and skin nourishment in all its products. Céleteque knows that these are women’s prime concerns when it comes to caring for their skin.

The Céleteque DermoCosmetics Anti-Aging line has all the bases covered to give you a youthful look. It has the Dual CC Matte Powder, the Dark Spot Concealer Stick, and the 24-hr Photoready Foundation that promise to keep your skin young-looking.

The Céleteque DermoCosmetics Dual CC Matte Powder (P749.00) keeps oily skin at bay with its 12-hour matte finish. Cinical studies have shown a significant decrease in skin oiliness from the first and second week of product usage, and it has also been proven to reduce fine lines to up to 42.87% when used for four weeks. It also contains Glutathione, Arbutin, and Mulberry, all of which inhibit melanin production and lighten skin color with regular use. The Dual CC Matte Powder is also packed with collagen peptide, which maintains skin firmness and improves elasticity through increased collagen formation, as well as Tocopheryl Acetate, which promotes skin hydration. This multi-tasking product is also packed with color correcting pigments that even out skin tone, as well as SPF 30 to protect the skin from the sun’s harsh UVA rays, considered one of the primary culprits of aging.

The Céleteque DermoCosmetics 24-hour Photoready Foundation (P795.00) is another must-have, as it provides a smooth airbrush finish for 24 hours while concealing dark spots for all skin types. It has micro pigments and silicone elastomers that hide blemishes and dark circles. It’s also has Phytocelltec, a component harnessed from cutting-edge plant cell culture technology that has extensive anti-aging properties, making skin more supple and radiant every day. Just like the Dual CC Matte Powder, the 24-hour Photoready Foundation is also infused with Collagen Peptide, which reduces wrinkles and improves skin elasticity through regular use: Studies have shown that wrinkles were significantly reduced up to 41.31% through the fourth week of product usage. Best of all, it has color-correcting pigments and SPF 30 that shield the skin from harmful UV rays.

The Céleteque DermoCosmetics Dark Spot Concealer Stick (P595.00) offers superior coverage for skin imperfections while protecting the skin from free radicals. It has glycolic acid that lightens uneven dark spots, ranging from blemishes, sun spots, and age spots. It has Cytobiol Lumin-eye, which efficiently reduces puffy eyebags within 15 days! The Dark Spot Concealer Stick also has moisturizing properties, thanks to Tocopheryl Acetate, which promotes skin hydration and improves over-all skin texture.

The Céleteque DermoCosmetics Nourishing line, on the other hand, has products that care for and nourish even the more sensitive parts of our face. For the eyes, it has the Eyebrow Nourishing Serum as well as the 24-hour Volumizer Mascara. Also part of the line are the Cheek Color Stick, Matte Lip Stick, Blush and Face Contour Kit that livening up the face with vivid colors while bringing out the skin’s radiant glow.

Give the brows much-needed TLC with the Céleteque DermoCosmetics Eyebrow Nourishing Serum (P595.00). It has Biotinyl Tripeptide-1, which makes the brows stronger and healthier. Other ingredients like Panthenol and Pro-vitamin B5 also nourish the hair follicles, while making the skin softer and smoother.

Make your lashes the talk of the town with the Céleteque DermoCosmetics 24-hour Volumizer Mascara (P645.00). Its revolutionary formula promises fuller lashes for 24 hours. It has Acrylates Copolymer, which holds lashes longer while preventing annoying clumps and smudges. It’s also powered with Aloe Barbadensis Leaf juice, which not only promotes the skin’s water retention but also protects the eyes from bacteria. The 24-hour Volumizer Mascara also comes with an innovative retractable brush that reaches even the smallest lashes, giving an even and fuller look with a smooth finish.

The multi-tasking Céleteque DermoCosmetics Cheek Color Stick (P645.00) is a must-have in every kikay kit, as it easily highlights, brightens, illuminates, conditions, and adds color to the cheeks, lips, and even eyes. It keeps the skin hydrated, thanks to the moisturizing properties of vitamin E and sweet almond oil. Got dry skin? The Cheek Color Stick also has Bisabolol, an essential oil from the German Chamomile plant, which reduces flakiness brought about by dry skin. It also reduces fine lines to up to 49.89% upon the fourth week of usage.

The long-wearing Céleteque DermoCosmetics Matte Lip Stick (P595.00) provides easy coverage and a pop of color while providing hydration for the lips. It glides easily on the lips and does not leave a waxy finish. Just like the Cheek Color Stick, the Matte Lip Stick is packed with Vtamin E and Bisabolol that nourish the lips and reduce suppleness while getting rid of flaky skin.

Highlight the cheeks with the Céleteque DermoCosmetics Blush and Face Contour Kit (P845.00), which addresses all contouring needs while nourishing the skin. The 3-in-1 kit is composed of easy to blend blush powder, cheek luminizer, and contour blush that are packed with mineral gems (diamond, tourmaline, and sapphire) and mica that exfoliate the skin and make it glow. This key makeup kit product is slated to be a favorite between both makeup newbies and makeup pros as the palette can create subtle angles and shadows that naturally shape the face. It’ll truly help get you 2X beautiful with the proper highlighting and lowlighting—just like how our fave celebrities do it! This Blush and Face Contour Kit also has castor oil that acts as an anti-aging anti-oxidant, as well as vitamins A, E, F, H, and B, which keep the skin healthy and protect it from irritation.

With its wide variety of multi-benefit products, Céleteque DermoCosmetics is the answer to every woman’s beauty needs. Each one plays up the features while providing hydration and protection from harsh elements. Enjoy long-wearing coverage, illumination, brightening and color while taking care of the skin all throughout the day. Just like Céleteque DermoScience’s skincare favorites, Céleteque DermoCosmetics line is dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, and clinically-proven, ensuring that the skin is healthy at all times. Be twice as beautiful, with everyday makeup that cares for your skin. After all, today’s hard-working modern woman deserves nothing less.

PRESS RELEASE: ADIDAS BREAKS THE MOULD WITH 3D-PRINTED PERFORMANCE FOOTWEAR

Something new and exciting from adidas!

adidas is set to develop a unique 3D-printed running shoe midsole tailored for your needs. Read more about it via the press release below and for a glimpse of the future, you may check out the images below and the video here:

PRESS RELEASE:

ADIDAS BREAKS THE MOULD WITH 3D-PRINTED PERFORMANCE FOOTWEAR
Futurecraft creates the ultimate personalised shoe

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Herzogenaurach, October 2015 – adidas recently unveiled the future of performance footwear with Futurecraft 3D, a unique 3D-printed running shoe midsole which can be tailored to the cushioning needs of an individual’s foot. The 3D concept is part of the ‘Futurecraft series’, a forward-looking initiative that places open source collaboration and craftsmanship at the heart of design to drive innovation across all elements of production.

In its 3D concept, which provides the ultimate personalised experience for all athletes, adidas created a unique combination of material and process. The production breakthrough will take the running shoe standard to the next level, offering unprecedented individualised support and cushioning for every foot, to enable athletes to perform at their best.

Imagine walking into an adidas store, running briefly on a treadmill and instantly getting a 3D-printed running shoe – this is the ambition of the adidas 3D-printed midsole. Creating a flexible, fully breathable carbon copy of the athlete’s own footprint, matching exact contours and pressure points, it will set the athlete up for the best running experience. Linked with existing data sourcing and footscan technologies, it opens unique opportunities for immediate in-store fittings.

“Futurecraft 3D is a prototype and a statement of intent. We have used a one-of-its-kind combination of process and material in an entirely new way. Our 3D-printed midsole not only allows us to make a great running shoe, but also to use performance data to drive truly bespoke experiences, meeting the needs of any athlete,” said Eric Liedtke, Executive Board Member of adidas AG, responsible for Global Brands.

The Futurecraft 3D story is the first chapter of the adidas Futurecraft series, which demonstrates the brand’s commitment to innovating throughout all areas of production.

“Futurecraft is our sandbox. It is how we challenge ourselves every day to explore the boundaries of our craft. Driving material and process innovation, bringing the familiar into the future. Marrying the qualities of handcrafting and prototyping with the limitless potential of new manufacturing technologies. Futurecraft is stripped back – fast, raw and real – it is our approach to design,” said Paul Gaudio, Creative Director, adidas.

True to the Futurecraft vision of creative collaboration, Futurecraft 3D is possible through an open source partnership with Materialise, a pioneer and leading specialist in 3D printing. The Futurecraft initiative will announce more groundbreaking design innovations in the coming six months and further support adidas’ ambition to be the best sports brand in the world.

pH Care Naturals Line Launched

Femme care is a staple for every woman and products like pH Care have helped Filipinas develop a healthy and comfortable attitude towards feminine hygiene. I first got to try this brand via a sample given away as a race kit finisher’s freebie. I have never looked back ever since. Me and my girls are loyal users!

Imagine how excited we were upon receiving a stash of these pH Care Naturals line – the pH Care Papaya and Guava, new products that are meant to keep us naturally fresh and clean!

12165182_10153340180598757_1471430648_o

Now that pH Care has jumped into the “all-natural” bandwagon, we can not only enjoy the beauty benefits of both papaya and guava extracts via our bath soaps and lotions but in our femme care product as well! Isn’t it a winner when you have a product with the combination of the mild and intimate care that we all have been used to plus the properties of these natural ingredients?

Check out these two variants below:

pH Care Naturals Papaya – promises to give us fairer skin after 14 days!

12169857_10153340205073757_1894436149_o

There are a lot of factors that can influence a woman’s confidence when it comes to donning that swimsuit, including puson problems and cleavage consciousness. But one other common insecurity many women have is dark skin in and around the feminine area, and this is something they can feel self-conscious about even in the comfort and privacy of their own rooms and bathrooms. And, while there are many products for whitening dark skin in other parts of the body, most of these aren’t safe or suited for use in intimate areas. But now, pH Care has a new whitening feminine wash variant that uses natural ingredients, so you keep the sensitive area fresh and fair. The new pH Care Naturals Papaya is powered with papaya extract, so you get fairer skin in as early as 14 days! And since we know papaya is one of nature’s wonders when it comes to skin-whitening, you’re sure to get only the best results with the mildest ingredients.

ph Care Naturals Guava – be confident with Guava’s deodorizing properties to keep us odor-free anytime, anywhere!

12164967_10153340205118757_1751822370_o

Even if you’re not overly concerned with dark skin, you may still want a feminine wash made from natural ingredients that will still keep your intimate area fresh and clean. After all, in a hot country like ours, sweat can lead to discomfort, even body odor, and infection—and it’s worse when it involves the feminine area! But no need to worry; pH Care Naturals Guava has been specially infused with guava leaf extract, which is well-known for its cleansing and anti-bacterial properties. In fact, the use of guava leaves for intimate care is a traditionally renowned practice passed on from generation to generation. So if you’re among the 33% of Filipinas constantly seeking for natural solutions “down there,” then give pH Care Naturals Guava a try. It will naturally deodorize the area so you can feel confident regardless of outfit, activity, or even weather. It has quite a refreshing scent, too!

Now, you can be assured of natural care “down there”, para fresh and clean na, odor-free pa!

So there! Which one’s your pick?

ph Care intimate wash products are OB-Gyne tested and safe for everyday use. I always make sure I have a small bottle of it in my everyday care bag so that I am able to use it anywhere and anytime I find the need to. I always tell my two daughters to have one in theirs too!

The NEW! pH Care Naturals Intimate Wash is available for P49.50 (50mL) and P104 (150mL) at leading supermarkets, drugstores, and beauty stores.

For more information, can check out the brand’s social media accounts – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter: @phcarephilippines

UNICEF’s Heroes for Children Run: October 25

21494757012_54f7993c2b_b

UNICEF, through the initiative of Celebrity Advocate for Children Anne Curtis, is holding a running event dubbed as the “Heroes for Children Run” which is meant to achieve a very good purpose – to help fund the “1,000 Days of Life” Campaign.

The campaign, we were told, was launched to focus on the much-needed health and nutrition support in the critical first thousand days of the life of a child: from conception through pregnancy, to childbirth, and through to the child’s second year and beyond.

ANNE

This race is the first ever running event to be organized by Anne Curtis, UNICEF’s Celebrity Advocate for Children, and a running enthusiast herself. “I am very much invested in health and fitness. I thought a benefit run that demonstrates health and wellness is a great way to raise resources to support children to have the best start in life! Proceeds from the run will help fund UNICEF’s ‘1,000 Days of Life’ campaign,” Anne said. She will be joined in this run by her celebrity friends as they make running as a means to raise funds for children.

DSCF8188_rev

During the contract signing and press launch of the #HeroesforChildrenRun, Anne Curtis was there together with UNICEF Philippines Representative Lotta Sylwander. “In the Philippines, at least 3.4 million Filipino children are stunted. Undernutrition accounts for over half of the 95 daily under-five child deaths. The ‘1,000 Days’ campaign will focus on much needed health and nutrition support in the critical first thousand days of the life of a child: from conception through pregnancy, to childbirth, and through to the child’s second year and beyond,” said Ms. Sylwander.

“UNICEF greatly appreciates Anne’s initiative to raise funds to support the critical needs of young children’s health and well-being. She is personally leading this event and has mobilised her own networks and resources to make it happen.” Added Sylwander, “I accompanied Anne on her first field visit with us. She is committed not only to learn, but also to contribute in changing the lives of the Filipino children for the better. Her popularity and large fan base is an asset in drawing due attention to the needs of Filipino children.”

As a mom, I feel strongly about this campaign as I know that it is very important for children to be properly nourished especially in their formative years. This run event again gives runners the opportunity to not just go out and run but run with a purpose.

I encourage everyone to register for this event now if you have done so, and help UNICEF provide a lot of kids the proper health and nutrition they all so deserve.
