BFF Beauty Bonding With Matrix Philippines | Clozette
Clozette is all about creating a community who share the same love for fashion and beauty. It's fulfilling to know that over the course of five years, our community has became a place where friendships are built and strengthened.

That's why in line with this year's National Bestfriend's Day, we decided to treat selected Clozette Ambassadors, Star Clozetters, and their BFFs to a hair repair makeover courtesy of Matrix Philippines. The event aims to make their crowning glory as strong, healthy, and beautiful as the unbreakable bonds they have with their BFFs.



The event featured Matrix’s Biolage hair treatments: Pelicure, which helps repair weak and fragile hair from the inside; Fill & Seal, which is perfect for those who have coloured hair to keep hair vibrant and shiny; and Scalp Rejuvenation, which cleanses the scalp to prevent dandruff, excess oils, and dirt that can make the strands weak and easily damaged.

Scroll down to find out more about what our Clozette Ambassadors and Star Clozetters have to say about their personal hair care routines, their BFFs, and their hair makeovers!

"Having a BFF is like having a sister outside your home. Bonding with them is more than a leisure and a chore. It's like taking your heart out for a good date. I was overly excited when I was told I could bring a BFF. It makes any event a lot more fun." - Clozette Ambassador Tina Cruz


Tina and Nina couldn't get enough of their softer, smoother hair after the makeover

"It's funny because both of us have dry and dull hair so we got the same hair treatment. After the hair makeover, we were both so happy to the point that we couldn't stop talking about how our hair got really smooth and healthy in just an hour. We even took a lot of hair selfies and snaps because we were that in love with our new hair!" - Clozette Ambassador Nina Nuguid


"I understand that the hair is a woman's crowning glory. But to be honest, I didn't have a particular hair care routine. I simply use shampoo and conditioner [before]. Sometimes, when it's extremely frizzy and uncooperative for brushing, I apply oil-based leave-on. 


Pampering day! Sisters Dianne Resurreccion and Clozette Ambassador Angel Andrade show off their shinier locks with Jamaica 

It's a good thing that I was a part of this event [because] I became more aware with my hair and how to take care of it. My hair was bleached and dyed more than twice this year, resulting it [to be] extremely dry. I've been dealing with it for months now! But Matrix educators told me that I can reconstruct it without cutting and instead [repair my hair using] Matrix's Biolage [treatment]." - Star Clozette Jamaica Agbisit




"Sometimes, we overlook how we take care of our hair. [We don't make] time for it, making it dry, frizzy, and weak. But [our hair being damaged] doesn't mean we have to completely give up. All you need is a little treatment and it can bring your dry weak hair to life. 


Ruth bonded with her vlogger BFF Helen Payawal at the event

Just like [any] friendship, not spending time with each other can make your relationship [with your BFF] weak and dry. But all you need is to spend a little more time catching up and I'm sure you'll return to your normal, happy, alive friendship." - Star Clozetter Ruth Jimenez

Travelling is a wonderful and exciting experience. But to get to new places, usually you have to fly via a plane. Now it’s no secret that flying can be bad for your skin, especially long haul flights, since all that circulating, recycled air can dehydrate your complexion.

So if you want to nourish your skin while flying and reach your destination sporting a radiant glow, here are our skincare tips on how you can turn your long haul flights into special spa sessions!

--------------------------


Sip tea to calm your senses

Before you start your skincare routine, start by relaxing with a hot cup of tea! This aromatic and soothing drink will not only calm your mind and body, but it will give your skin a boost of anti-oxidants that will protect it from the dry air as well!

Cleanse your skin with a cleansing wipe

Cleansing wipes are amazing to have during long haul flights because they’re easy to pack and can remove every bit of makeup you’re wearing, preventing future breakouts from happening! So invest in quality cleansing wipes, ones that are soft, moisturising, and with excellent cleansing ingredients to gently remove all the dirt and grime on your face.


Spritz on a hydrating face mist

If you feel like your skin has been stripped of all its moisture, don’t worry! Spray your face with a mist and in a few minutes, your skin will feel soft and hydrated again -- ready to drink in the other skincare products you'll be using!


Use a sheet mask (or two)

Who doesn’t love sheet masks? These thin cotton pieces drenched in essences and serums are perfect for long haul flights because not only will they plump up your skin, but they can also exfoliate and lift dead skin cells off to make way for a brighter complexion.


Apply a rich moisturiser

Long haul flights are neither the time nor the place to skimp on hydration, so after your sheet mask(s), layer on that rich cream to lock in your skin’s moisture!


Don’t forget your eyes and lips

Your eyes and lips have the thinnest skin, making them more prone to wrinkling and cracking. So if you want to keep both hydrated, don’t forget to apply a generous amount of eye cream and lip balm to soothe them! If you forgot to bring a lip balm with you, though, your eye cream can be used as one. Amazing, right?


Slather on the hand cream

Just like your eye area and lips, your hands are one of the places where signs of aging first begin to appear. Which is why a hand cream is a must, especially during flights which can drain the moisture out of our skin. You don’t have to apply hand cream every hour, but whenever your hands are feeling particularly dry or tight, take a drop and massage it over your hands for instant plumpness and hydration!

What makes a lipstick more than a lipstick? Attitude. With Givenchy’s brand new lipstick, Rouge Interdit Vinyl, wearing it isn’t just about enhancing your beauty – it’s an accessory and a weapon.


Housed in a sleek black case that reveals nothing, each shade is hidden away from prying eyes, adding a layer of mystery to this gorgeous product! The best part about this new line of lipsticks is, of course, its formula. Extraordinary shine, opaque colours, and an astounding plumping effect round up the 3 major components of this collection.



The secret to its unique formula is black rose oil, a rare and precious ingredient that delivers extreme moisture and comfort for hours. Combined with silicone resin to form a second-skin sensation on the lips, Rouge Interdit Vinyl gives a fuller and denser finish, blurring away the tiniest imperfections for a radiant and dazzling pout from any angle.

But if you truly want to make a statement, the shade to check out is Noir Révélateur. This black lipstick takes on a different colour each time by reacting to your lips’ pH. So whether you layer it over bright hues to create winter shades, or nudes to create a customised evening look, the options are endless - making this a true must-have for all beauty addicts and lovers. Heads up though: we heard it’s sold out everywhere!
