Wonder Beauty Counter: You Are What You Use On Your Body
Here’s to better, happy, healthy days ahead
Hot summer days are almost over and we’re just starting to feel the cool (okay, sometimes humid), rainy season upon us. This transition is a good reminder to revisit routines and habits that may need to be updated as we hit the half-year mark.
Personal care might feel different, oral health might need an upgrade, especially as many still hold off on trips outside their homes, and clean beauty habits might need to be reconsidered. So we’re sharing tips and exciting news from our go-to brands in beauty and grooming, health and wellness this month of June.
Vaseline Sun Care
Protect, hydrate and heal
We’ve said this once, we’ll say it again: you’ll regret skipping sunscreen years from now so better get into the habit, stat! While we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to sun protection, we’re always on the lookout for products that work just as hard as we do.
Introducing Vaseline’s first ever sun care product, Vaseline Daily Sun Care. It not only protects skin but keeps it hydrated and has healing properties that can help address scars, dry skin and redness. The latest from the skincare brand also features a non-sticky, non-greasy formulation and boasts WaterFlux texture and Double Layering System for easy absorption and light moisturization. It comes in two variants: Vaseline Daily Sun Cream with SPF50, which has signature moisturizing jelly that nourishes from the inside and protects skin from the sun’s harmful rays on the outside; and Vaseline Daily Tone Up Sun Cream with SPF40, which brightens skin, giving it a naturally toned look with a coveted matte finish.
Perfect for everyday use, whether indoor or outdoor, Vaseline Daily Sun Care Sun Cream with SPF50 and Tone-up Cream with SPF40 are available in 50mL bottles for P329 via Watsons, Lazada, and Shopee.
Red days? No problem
ICYMI, it was International Menstrual Hygiene Day last month and GynePro celebrated by conquering red day miseducation and raising awareness on red day care. During the brand’s #RedTalks virtual event on Facebook, we learned that “12% of women have no one to talk to about their period and that 47% of women find it harder to access menstrual materials during the pandemic?” The event featured Dr. Marie Michelle Dado, OB-GYN to help give viewers a better understanding of menstrual hygiene and to answer questions from the audience. Also present during the event were Angel Dei and Nina Ellaine Dizon who took part in the conversation on topics like dysmenorrhea, common red day threats and how proper hygiene can help alleviate or prevent these symptoms. With a specific red day care product like GynePro, which has Chlorhexidine, you get tri-protection against vaginal odor, itching, and irritation.
Menstrual health is part of your health and wellness. It’s important to talk about it, ask questions and practice proper feminine hygiene (as recommended by your OB-GYN).
GynePro Ultra Protection Feminine Wash (P73 for 60ml; P163 for 150ml) is available in leading drugstores and supermarkets and online via Shopee and Lazada under UL Skin Sciences Inc. Follow @gynepro on Instagram and #ConquerRedDays.
Have a happy, healthy mouth
Taking care of oneself means taking care of every part of your body and that includes oral health. Just as our bodies need a detox, so do our mouths. Listerine not only gives you fresh breath, but helps achieve total mouth defense by killing 99.9% of germs—minus the sting! That’s right, earlier this month Listerine launched two new botanically-inspired limited edition flavors that will definitely enhance your brushing experience: Aloe & Cucumber and Pomelo & Passion Fruit.
Always remember to brush, floss and rinse with Listerine for a happy, healthy mouth!
Starting June 7, 2021, you can get your hands on these two new limited edition flavors on Shopee. Both flavors come in two sizes: 250ml for P115 and 500ml for P209.

You are what you eat, but also what you put on your skin. While it’s true that at the core of great skin are healthy diet and hydration, the right product can help you achieve glowing results. Enter: Purganics, a skincare brand that knows the good stuff your skin needs. The brand uses natural extracts from fruits and vegetables as key ingredients. These are combined with botanical extracts that help nourish and moisturize the skin, leaving it smooth and supple to the touch.
As an advocate of clean beauty, Pureganics products are safe, natural and affordably priced to ensure it’s accessible by everyone. Don’t know what to get? To calm, revitalize and moisturize skin, try Pureganics Ginger-infused lotion and soap. Ginger is known to contain 40 antioxidants that help stop free radicals from feeding off our natural collagen and help combat hyperpigmentation and a dull complexion. Meanwhile, to hydrate, refresh and rejuvenate, the Cucumber lotion and soap are a must. Cucumber is full of amino acids that help skin retain water more effectively, keeping skin hydrated longer. Then to brighten, nourish and exfoliate skin, add the Calamansi line to your routine. Calamansi has natural brightening properties, which lightens dark spots and blemishes, and evens out skin tone. Last but not least, the Papaya line, which is made from papaya extracts rich in vitamins A and C. It’s also packed with an enzyme called Papain that helps remove impurities, sloughs off dead skin, and helps brighten and moisturize the skin.
