The moment my daughter Aryanna and I both saw the Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow-Pencil and Pink Cheek Palette, we gasped! Pink blushies, woohoo!

First is the Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow-Pencil in ‘Saddle.’ I mean, angled brow-pencil and a brow brush in one? Genius!


What I love: The slant tip! It’s also formulated with waterproof and sweat and humidity-resistant color up to 16 hours! Huwaw!

How-to: The slant tip offers the ultimate customized and versatile application—simply use the flat edge to create a softer look and the pointed tip for a more defined look. The attached spooly brush allows you to comb brow hairs into place, delivering a look that’s natural-looking.


Next is the Bobbi Brown Pink Cheek Palette, I love the colors! This palette is something my teenage daughter and I can share.


What I like about about it: Not only does my daughter get to share this blush with me, the pink hues also go well with our skin tone. It gives us that rose-y, naturally blushing look. Cute lang!


The Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit is one of my favorites. These products are always on rotation in my vanity tray.

The kit is a complete Murad Environmental Shield regimen designed to free skin of dullness, dark spots and wrinkles for a younger looking complexion and to protect skin from environmental damage as part of Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health System of care.


Environmental Shield Starter Kit includes: Essential-C Cleanser; Active Radiance Serum; Essential-C Eye Cream; Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA+++

Bonus: Get a FREE skin analysis from one of the skin specialists at the Murad counter on the first floor of Rustan’s Makati using the Youthcam. It analyzes your skin in terms of five skin conditions: fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, inflammation, redness and pores. Do it!


Not part of the kit but must-buy: I love using the Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel! It brightens the face and it’s easy to use: just put a small amount on your face for 10-15 minutes then rinse. Follow-up on the Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA+++.

How to use: I use one to two times weekly as a Step 2 treatment in any Murad Environmental Shield regimen. It instantly leaves skin with a luminous, radiant glow. It really works!


Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel instantly reverses environmental aging to enhance luminosity and reveal a noticeably brighter complexion. Glycolic acid exfoliates to accelerate turnover of dark, damaged cells which rids skin of dullness and improves skin texture. Myrtle extract supports natural renewal to improve youthful resilience and elasticity. Vitamin C and Indian Fig work together to protect against free radical damage while enhancing skin’s clarity and luminosity.

Shower gels are probably one of the bath products I use on a daily basis (but I also use soap bars as an alternative). I’ve been using the Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Shower Gel for a week now and the scent is unexpected and velvety.

What I like about it: The silky shower gel gently cleanses and leaves my skin delicately fragranced.

After showering, I spritz the Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Eau De Toilette to make the scent last longer.


Inspired by and named after the world perfume capital in the south of France, La Collection de Grasse includes stunning fragrances that combine precious ingredients from lands near and far: Jasmine & Bergamote, Magnolia & Mure, Vanille & Narcisse and Thé Vert & Bigarade. Each eau de toilette of the Collection is made with natural extracts, which yield the purest and clearest notes.

I started using Crème de la Mer in my 30’s. It’s my go-to moisturizer when I travel.

What I like about it: Its rich formula helps hydrate my skin on the plane or when traveling to cold-climate countries.


To commemorate World Oceans Day and La Mer’s Blue Heart, a 100ml jar of Crème de la Mer with a new limited-edition design.

What I like about it: Even the driest complexions are renewed and rejuvenated. Skin looks virtually ageless! It’s a must-have in your travel kit and during cool-weather months.

How to use: Warm the cream between fingers until it becomes translucent then press gently into the skin.


Updating my beauty routine with a few simple tweaks and trying new products helps my skin to be at its best whatever the season is.
