If you haven't heard of Hello Gorgeous, let us tell you a little about this Bulacan-borne, day spa-turned-skincare brand. They've been around since '98 and has since offered facial and body care treatments using their own homemade products, which they later decided to offer for purchase. The products are so good, it gained a loyal following and, as they say, the rest is history. Today Hello Gorgeous bestsellers and favorites include their brush cleaners, face mists and the facial detox masks.
Pasadya has been quite a hit among the fellas since its inception in 2017. The one-style-custom-print-and-fit-for-all seem to work for their fuss-free but style-conscious market that guys like Nico Bolzico, Alex Diaz and Carlo Guevera have been seen sporting their threads. From solid shades to classic stripes to abstract prints, the sky's the limit when it comes to design.
