Skincare Love: Estée Lauder Crescent White | Clozette
Estée Lauder has recently released their latest skincare line, the new Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening; and we are absolutely in love with it! As a full cycle skincare system, it's perfect for those who are looking to give their skin a brighter, luminous, and flawless complexion all through the breakthrough approach of working in-sync with the skin's natural circadian rhythm. 

Created for and tested on Asian women, the regimen includes seven all-new products such as: Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Cleanser, Moisture Treatment Lotion, Spot Correcting Essence, Moisture Creme, UV Protector SPF 50/PA++++, BB Creme SPF 50/PA++++, and Brightening Balm and Brightening Powder Makeup SPF 25/PA+++.

Want to know more? Here are the 5 reasons why it's our new skincare love!


#1: It Syncs To The Skin's Rhythm

It features a new breakthrough approach in skin brightening by working in-sync with the skin's circadian rhythm to address not only existing dark spots and pigmentation but also the key causes of light loss and discolouration. This means that the potent-yet-gentle regimen works around the clock to target your skin's key concerns, granting you a fairer and more flawless complexion. 

#2: Daytime Protection & Prevention

Sun damage is the worst. So one of the best things about this line is how it has been designed to give optimal protection during the day when the UVA and UVB rays are most intense and can cause further hyperpigmentation. Through a combination of its advance SIRT-Technology, powerful Baicalin, potent anti-oxidants, and broad spectrum sunscreen, the Crescent White skincare line protects and repairs your skin through the day to reduce pigment darkening. The result: fairer, brighter, and healthier skin that is free from sun damage.

#3: Night-time Repair and Correction

Still in-sync with the skin's natural repair rhythms, the Crescent White system works at night to correct the look of existing spots and protect against future spots all while you sleep. This is done though a potent combination of Vitamin C, Molasses, and Sea Fern extracts that breaks up visible accumulated pigments to dramatically reduce the look of spots. These also inhibit cellular responses that contribute to excess pigmentation, allowing your skin to correct itself while you sleep.

#4: Soothes Skin

Nothing beats the feeling of having soothed, calm skin when you wake up the next day. With its intensive anti-irritants such as anti-inflammatory Licorice, the Crescent White system help minimize the skin's irritation responses that peak at night. This leaves the skin calm, comforted, and soothed. The result: no more skin dullness and discolouration! You'll wake up every morning looking fresh and bright.



Summer is just around the corner and that means bright, sunny, warm days ahead---the perfect time to head to the beach for that much-needed Summer getaway. Here at Clozette, we've already started packing our beach essentials months ago; but that doesn't mean we don't have space for our new summer must-have: Vaseline's Water-Based Serum.

Because while we all may love the feeling of the sun against our skin and the warm summer breeze as we run around outdoors enjoying the Summer season, the one thing we hate is skin damage and that sticky feeling from thick sunscreens. With Vaseline's new Water-Based Serum, our skin is protected from the harsh rays of the sun while still feeling fresh and light.

Vaseline's Water-Based Serum has a non-sticky formula that is easily absorbed by the skin; has SPF30 that provides up to 96%protection from UVB rays that cause skin damage & sunburn; has PA++ that protects against UVA rays of the sun that cause ageing & skin darkening; and lastly, it has Vitamin B3 that whitens skin with continued use.

The NEW Vaseline Water-Based Whitening Serum is now available in all stores in the Philippines and retails at PHP 249.00 for 180mL and PHP 99.00 for 70mL.

Spring is the season for bold and bright colours and what better way to celebrate it than to put it on your lips? Lucky for us women, Make Up For Ever has given us the gift of their latest makeup addition--the Artist Plexi-Gloss, a collection packed with colour variations with a glossy finish like no other. 

Tested by makeup artists from the fashion and entertainment industry, Artist Plexi-Gloss pushes the limits of shine and colour. It is a formula purer than ever with a translucent and second skin-like base. For a mirror lip finish, the gloss also contains Prizmalite spherical micro-beads that outshines the gloss effect that other typical tubes of lipgloss offer. 

In addition to how flawless the formula is, the Artist Plexi-Gloss is also equipped with a Superflex applicator. It's a carefully constructed wand shaped to fill the curves and dimensions of the lips so that the formula can roll across flawlessly. The new hold-fast polymer and a silica powder also ensures that the pigments are evenly distributed which lacquers the smile for 5 hours. 

We were able to see this in person during their media preview in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and oh, how it glides and contours with precision! We also saw new lip looks we can sport this season such as the tie dye lips (by using two colours), rock lips (by using several colours on the lips applied vertically); and the classic nude lips. 

The Artist Plexi-Gloss comes in 35 intense shades, from the softest to the most show-stopping, divided into 5 categories: nudes, corals, pinks, reds and artsy shades. Each tube has a very high percentage of pigments, thus giving a vibrant colour similar to what you see on the bottle. You can choose two kinds of glosses: pearl for a shine peppered with fine pearlizers; or pure for colour that's more intense than ever.

What more can you ask for? Make Up For Ever's Artist Plexi-Gloss is perfect from packaging to formula--and we can't wait to get our hands on one.
