Clothes, makeup, accessories—all of these things say something about our personality and we tend to change it up based on the occasion or just to suit what we’re feeling for the day. That also goes the same with our choice of perfume. 

Being a woman means that we all get to live different roles throughout our lifetime. This means stepping up your game and trying your best to live, laugh, and love more with the people you care about the most. Because of this, Avon, the number one fragrance company in the Philippines, decided to pay tribute to all the women--whether you’re a daughter, mom, sister, friend, or partner—through their new scent. 


The Avon Cherish Eau de Parfum is a tender floral scent with a heart of Jasmin that is known to be one of the finest ingredients used in perfumery which provides a unique and intense aroma. This is combined with creamy sandalwood that exudes both strength and fluidity paramount to every women’s persona. A concoction that gives both softness and allure, the charm of Avon Cherish promises to last all day long.

To compliment this, Avon also release Black Suede for your significant other, which has five different variants to suit any style, mood, or occasion.




The Black Suede Eau De Cologne has a strong alluring scent that captures the essence of genuine masculinity and is sure to charm any woman with its sophisticated, warm woody musk.




The Black Leather Cologne Spray, on the other hand, has a dangerously seductive fragrance that suits every man with an inner rebel. The irresistible scents of leather and wood exudes warmth and coolness.



For men who are casual yet classic, they have the Black Suede Essential Eau de Toilette that gives a carefree charm with its woody oriental scent.



Perfect for sensual and relaxed men, the Touch by Black Suede Eau de Toilette gives a warm an inviting scent that is sure to lure in any woman.




And last but not the least, the Black Suede Sport Eau de Toilette give a whiff of woody citrus fragrance that is perfect for the adventurous and sporty guys.

While you can purchase your entire skincare routine at the grocery aisles, it’s important to check their labels and ingredients too. Make sure that whatever you purchase is 100% organic or raw to fully reap in the benefits of the products, otherwise, they will just be filled with as much chemicals as your old skincare products.

Oil cleansing is the way to go

Whatever your skin type is, oil cleansing will suit you (especially if you have oily skin)! There are a ton of raw oils out there that you can use to cleanse your skin with such as coconut and sunflower. Find your right combination of oils and before you know it, your skin is purging out all those impurities, leaving you with clear, supple skin!


Honey will be your BFF

Want a product that can act as a face mask, a spot treatment, a cleanser, and a moisturiser? Then honey will be your new best friend in your DIY skincare routine -- its anti-bacterial and hydrating properties are excellent for nourishing skin and clearing out your pores!


Combine face oils

Just like the oil cleansing method, face oils make excellent moisturisers too; they can even be used as hair treatments, to soothe irritated skin, and so much more! Substitute your expensive moisturiser for a few drops of any face oil mixture to gently hydrate, protect, and nourish your skin for a perfectly balanced complexion!


Ice will zap your acne away

In case you didn’t know, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are know to cause skin dryness, which can lead to more irritation and acne on your skin. So if you want a healthier way of calming down your acne, just rub a few ice cubes all over the area for a few minutes at a time. It might look red and scary at first, but once it calms down, it will be smaller and less visible!
