The House Of LUX Experience | Clozette

On October 6, the House of LUX opened its doors to the Philippines’ most beautiful and fabulous faces, as the globally iconic brand was finally introduced to the local market. LUX is a brand adorned by women all over the world over for its perfumed body wash and bar soap collection which has alluring fragrances, fine ingredients, and exotic flowers.


Crafted by master perfumers from New York, London, and Paris, the New LUX Perfumed Bath Collection is finally here in the Philippines to give the modern day Filipina the luxury of bathing with perfume every day.

This star-studded event of media and VIP guests was held in Valkyrie at The Palace, and for the special event this prestigious bar took on a new look.




We were captivated as we experienced bathing with perfume through a multi-sensorial evening that featured gorgeous deep purple flower walls and the magical fragrance of Lux. 




The Clozette team also explored the different vignettes and creative setups that served as colourful Instagram backdrops!




What took centre stage was the illuminated stage of LUX-- filled with more deep purple flowers, lights, and the fragrant smell of LUX's Magical Spell--an alluring scent that enveloped the guests in luxury.  



The event commenced as host Apples Aberin conversed with the guest of the night, Perfume Expert from New York Nicole Mancini, about fragrances and how it creates certain emotional experiences in a person’s life. As the woman behind scents for Rihanna, Victoria’s Secret, Juicy Couture and St. Regis Hotels, Nicole Mancini took us through a fragrance masterclass. She revealed the art behind crafting fine fragrance as we re-created LUX’s signature variant, Magical Spell. 


  


Within the statement fragrance lies key notes of the rare Black Orchid, with opening notes of Juniper Oil, amidst a captivating blend of dark woods, golden amber, and vanilla bean. 




The Clozette team had fun as we dipped, dropped, and sniffed our way to creating our own versions of the scent and got to take it home in personalised glass bottles!





Clozette also witnessed Unilever Philippines’ Marketing Director for Skin, Mian Datu-David, as she talked about how Unilever created the magic behind Bathing with Perfume Every Day with LUX. 




She says “Scents play an important role in the lives of Filipina women. A whiff of a familiar fragrance can take a person back to days thought to be forgotten, or to remembering precious moments. Fine fragrances that evoke such emotions have been captured so well in the Lux bottle, and has never before been seen in a body wash, which is why Unilever Philippines believed that now is the perfect time for LUX.”




To cap off the night,  LUX unveiled their roster of Ambassadors that included famous names from Manila's entertainment industry such as Isabelle Daza, Solenn Heussaf, Kelsey Meritt, Mikaela Lagdameo-Martinez, Vanessa Matsunaga, and Phoemela Baranda. They also got influencers such as Krys Uy, Nicole Andersson, Janina Manipol, and Jessica Yang.  




With a spectacular showcase that delighted and engaged all our senses, we truly experienced how Bathing With Perfume Every Day with LUX can make women feel fabulously feminine everyday. 




The new LUX Perfumed Bath Collection is available in both perfumed body washes and bar soaps. Take your pick from Magical Spell, White Impress, Soft Touch and Love Forever.

Just when you thought your makeup brands couldn't get any better--they do. Aside from producing items that immediately become part of your holy-grail list, having cute packaging, and exciting collaborations, they give you one more reason to fall in love with them even more. Two words: Membership Perks.  


Here are 4 more reasons why you’ll fall deeper in love with your favourite makeup brands and stores! 


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


Discounts




Wanna make your wallet a bit happier every time you buy makeup? Get a membership card and score discounts! The best time to utilise those member discounts is on your birthday month. Missha, for one, gives you 25% discount while Laneige gives 20% on your first purchase during birthday month. Etude House goes via points system that when accumulated, you can use to offset on your purchases. Sephora, on the other hand, entitles you to a 10% discount once you have purchased $250 in a year, which won’t be that difficult since there are so many things you can buy there.

Free Makeovers




You may be an expert when it comes to makeup or skin care, but when Etude House gives a free personal beauty class with two of your friends on your birthday month, give it a go. Make it your intimate birthday makeup party! YSL also offers the same makeover but make sure to schedule an appointment early on.



Free Gifts




Upon signing up for membership, some beauty brands give welcome packs that include samples of their best selling items. Or, if you go to Sephora and TheFaceShop on your birthday month, members can enjoy gifts without needing to purchase any item. Other brands like Guerlain and Bobbi Brown have point systems where, once you reach the specified points, you can get a full-sized sample. You can also get freebies when you spend a certain amount. 



Exclusive Invites




While industry insiders usually get a VIP pass to events, those of us who belong to the other side of the spectrum can just hope for those exclusive invites to be sent to our emails c/o our membership. However, at Sephora Singapore, if you are a black card member, it entitles you exclusive invites to product launches. Just make sure to RSVP as soon as you receive the email blast!

No amount of skincare can be effective without the help of a proper cleansing routine. With the latest Eye & Lip Makeup Remover, Water Power Cleansing Pads, and Facial Scrub from DHC, you can be sure that all your cleansing dilemmas are solved effectively, with the result of radiant, bright and youthful-looking skin!


The DHC Eye & Lip Makeup Remover conveniently and gently removes waterproof makeup without stinging while caring for delicate eye and lip areas with its moisture-rich cleansing ingredients and conditioning ingredients – Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract and Vitamin E to protect skin moisture.


Another must-buy from this line is the DHC Facial Scrub, a low stimulus medicated scrub that gently but effectively removes all impurities in pores and promotes skin turnover and blood circulation. For cleansing on the go there is the DHC Water Power Cleansing Sheet that effectively removes even the toughest water-proof makeup without stripping the skin dry of moisture.



Other products that also launched from in 2015 from DHC that are also worth trying are the DHC Face Wash and the DHC Water-friendly Cleansing Oil F1. The face wash features purifying rosemary and various plant-derived moisturizing ingredients with low stimulus cleansing components which condition the skin to a smooth and moisturising texture. The mildly acidic and milky medicated face wash has a pH balance that is close to that of regular healthy skin. The cleansing oil acts as both a makeup remover and facial cleanser that removes makeup and cleanses pores while preventing dryness and roughness of the skin.
