Just for Y.O.U

Innovative beauty for clean, bright and healthy skin


In case you missed it, Y.O.U beauty launched earlier this year. Known for its commitment to making innovative beauty accessible to women, Y.O.U offers a varied portfolio of products for all your needs. They have everything, from makeup, bodycare to skincare and cosmetics accessories.


This month, we’re spotlighting their skincare products that promise clean, bright and healthy skin. First is Y.O.U’s Radiance White Purifying Facial Foam, a freshly-scented facial foam enriched with Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Tremella Extract and Glycolic Acid (AHA) to remove impurities and makeup residue, leaving skin clean and smooth. Next, exfoliate and brighten skin with the Radiance White Essential Toner. It’s a refreshing toner formulated with Snow Mushroom Extract, Vitamin C, and Niacinamide to remove dead skin cells and hydrates for a brighter, fresher look. Last but not least is Y.O.U’s Radiance White Nourishing+ Serum, a serum enriched with Tremella Extract, 5% Niacinamide, 50X* Vitamin C, and Probiotics to deeply nourish skin. It also helps reduce dark spots, brightens, and strengthens the skin’s barrier.

Your best holiday skin right this way


For many, the holiday season makes us want to dress up and put on a cute face. After all, it’s the time of the year where we gather with friends and family to celebrate Christmas and the year that was. But while all that is wonderful, the extra food and drinks, as well as late nights can take a toll on our bodies and skin.


The good news is, Nivea’s MicellAIR Cleanser 0% Alcohol is tough on makeup and soft on skin. It’s the perfect companion for holiday parties that require some serious face. With Advanced Micellar Technology, it helps remove dirt, oil and eyelash glue—even face paint! And because it has 0% alcohol, it brings back moisture for baby soft and smooth skin.



Shop Nivea in leading department stores and online via Shopee and Lazada.


Vaseline Lip Care

Smooth-as-butter application to give you a soft, nourished kiss


Since mask-wearing has become the norm, many of us tend to neglect the part of our face we keep hidden: our lips. This oversight in one’s skincare routine can lead to a chapped and cracked kiss–adjectives you don’t want anywhere near your lips. But don’t fret, Vaseline Lip Care is here. Made with 100% Vaseline Jelly, Vaseline Lip Care promises a non-stick, non-greasy but smooth-as-butter application. It protects lips from the drying effects of mask-wearing and lip-licking, giving you soft and smooth lips all day. 


Moisturized and nourished lips in a natural, glossy finish or a healthy, rosy stain? We’ll say yes to that.



The all-new Vaseline Lip Care retails for P109 and is available through e-commerce platforms Watsons Online, Lazada, and Shopee.



The global soap brand reminds us that proper handwashing is the easiest way to stay safe


As the holidays draw near, we anticipate more face to face gatherings for work and play. But this doesn’t mean we should let our guards down. If anything, we should stay vigilant in making sure we and our loved ones are safe. How? By remembering the basics: proper hygiene.


Global soap brand Lifebuoy together with the Philippine Red Cross continues to educate consumers on the must-not-forget steps for proper handwashing.



To strengthen their cause, Lifebuoy is calling on today’s youth to be part of the Lifebuoy Ambassador Program. Being an ambassador means actively communicating Do The Lifebuoy #4TheFuture online and offline. What’s more, taking part in the program will entitle you to a one-year supply of Lifebuoy products, which will help reinforce the message on proper hygiene.

The Snow Fairy is here!


This year, the Lush Christmas range takes inspiration from the idea of togetherness and spreading joy. 


For the first time, Lush’s beloved Snow Fairy debuts on screen with the help of London-based duo FeralChild. The resulting cheery animation brings the brand’s magic to life while the sweet scent sparks a journey through a snow-laden forest to the enchanted world of the Snow Fairy.



What’s more, the Lush Christmas 2021 collection features gift packaging made from 100% recycled paper and ribbons made from 100% recycled polyester from recycled drinking bottles. Favor a reusable wrapping option? Opt for Knot Wraps. One of the hero wraps for the season is the iconic It’s Christmas Deer made from 100% organic cotton grown in Pradesh, India.


A sensorial experience with little to no impact to the environment? That’s a gift we, too, would love to receive this Christmas!


In the Philippines, Lush is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio High Street, Estancia in Capitol Commons, Glorietta 4, Greenbelt 3, Robinsons Magnolia, Shangri-La Plaza, SM Mall of Asia, and TriNoma.
