Origins is known for its botanical skincare offerings, but they've broken into the makeup scene through a line of lipsticks. Their Blooming Bold lipsticks are made with flowers — crushed petals, repurposed buttery flower waxes from perfumeries and flower honeys.

Filipino actress Angel Locsin has collaborated with Avon Fashions on a collection of bags. With the modern Filipina in mind, she designed styles that can be used from day to night.

Look back at what happened last week here.



In life, there are things that remain constant — family, passions, and sunscreen. Yes, you read that right. We may opt to forego moisturising or exfoliating from time to time, but putting on sunscreen should be non-negotiable – no matter where you are in life, physically or mentally. So whether you're doing fun activities at the beach or enjoying the foreign but delightful coldness of winter, a sunscreen is necessary.

Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk

The question now is: which sunscreen should you pick? With tons of choices in the market, it's truly hard to choose. But we say go for the one that works in all types of weather condition: the Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk. It's been on Japanese women's top shelves for the past 17 years — and for good reason. Not only does it protect your skin from sun damage but it also gives wonderful skincare benefits. Here's why it's the perfect travel companion no matter your destination. P.S. it comes in a 20ml travel-friendly size!

Out and about in Summer

There's a good chance you'll take a plunge and do all sorts of water activities when you're at the beach. Aside from getting a sunburn that can weaken the skin and make it more prone to bruises and injuries, you'll also be hassled by the need to reapply every so often if the sunscreen you're using isn't created to last when in contact with water. The Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk promises to deliver even when you're in the water or sweating profusely while you're busy having fun. Formulated with ground-breaking Aqua Booster Technology, this sunscreen's UV protection veil actually gets enhanced when in contact with water and sweat! Plus, it's also sand-resistant.

It’s also formulated with 360° Protect Technology that forms an even veil from every angle of your skin, including pores and lines, to protect it from UV rays.

Chilling in the Winter

While the sun's rays may be hidden and not as seemingly harsh in the winter than during the summer at the beach, they can still cause damage to the skin. You may not get sunburnt, but you can still get dark spots, wrinkles and uneven skin tone, among others. So make sure you use a sunscreen that doesn't just protect but also nourishes the skin. The Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk contains 50% skincare ingredients — super hyaluronic acid, glycerin, collagen, rose extract, aloe extract, green tea extract, Sakura leaf extract and Tormentilla extract — that will nurture the skin and make sure it's moisturised.

The Anessa Perfect UV Milk and other Anessa Sunblock variants are now available at Lazada. Head there now for a special discount of 16% when you buy a pack of two Anessa Perfect UV Milk bottles.



They say there’s a time for everything. It’s only a matter of choosing which ones we put on top of the list. This October, we implore you to give time to yourself and other women. The month has, for years, been attributed to spreading awareness about breast cancer. But this year, The Estée Lauder Companies want not only to share the knowledge about the disease but also to finally make this declaration: it’s time to end breast cancer. 

We spend our time primping ourselves as a means of self-care, and rightfully so. But wouldn’t it feel even better if you know that you’ve helped a cause while caring for yourself? Be in solidarity with women who are fighting a serious battle with each application of these iconic beauty products — part of the profits will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
