Beauty Month is upon us!
We definitely started Beauty Month with a bang over at Wonder, with our October cover star and Issy & Co. ambassador Alex Gonzaga. With weeks left (and the holiday season nearing), we still have more beauty-related content to look forward to, so keep your eyes peeled!
For our monthly curation of new beauty releases, we’re heroing do-it-yourself beauty and good-for-your-skin products from both homegrown and global brands we love and trust. From Colourette’s foray into the hair category to TRIZIE’s first-ever beauty product and Neutrogena’s new and improved cleanser line, there’s much in store this October.
Ahead, our Wonder Beauty Counter: October edition.
Introducing Colourette’s Bleach Cloud and Sky Dye
Get your mane character moment
Homegrown beauty brand Colourette, committed to unapologetic beauty, is finally entering the hair category. With their recent revelation with respect to the closing down of sister brand Fresh Formula—highlighting healthy skin that feels like you—we’re crushed but looking forward to a new chapter.
With quarantine giving us more time for do-it-yourself beauty, we’re exploring different types of self-care on our own. Introducing the game-changing duo for your mane character moment: Bleach Cloud (P599), a hair-lightening kit that lifts and lightens hair color up to three to four levels in one go, and Sky Dye (P599), a nourishing semi-permanent hair dye available in eight bold, fun shades.
The Bleach Cloud Kit contains 30-volume developer and powder bleach, with free Colourette hair tools to get you started. Complement the experience with Sky Dye, a nourishing hair color, which leaves locks with shiny, vivid color; plus we’re not complaining about the refreshing coconut scent! Mad props, too, for the brand’s take on inclusivity—an instruction manual written in different Filipino dialects (making rounds on social media!).
