It's summer! It's probably the best time of the year to go on adventures, try new things, and create new memories. Needless to say, it's the perfect time to just go out there and literally do anything under the sun.

With all the promise of fun and good times, the one thing most of us consider as a drawback when summer comes is the sun and the potential harm that it can cause. We don't have to let this stop us though. Watsons has lined up a wide selection of featured products to allow you to just go out there and enjoy. No need to avoid the sun, because at Watsons, we "Love The Sun".

Or just kick it back on a staycation weekend? Whatever it is, you know you've got to have the right sun protection products in tow. Then after that long day under the sun, give your skin a recovery treat with soothing after-sun products. Of course, skin isn't the only thing that gets those rays and is prone to damage. That's why Watsons also has a range of hair care products available. Plus, vitamins and other health supplements are also on the shelves to help get you that "summer-ready" body.

Gasp!!! I'm shookt!

Who knew? The very affordable Nivea Soft Cream was hailed to be even better than its expensive counterparts as a moisturizer! BBC's 'The Truth About Looking Good" did a test on which moisturizers worked best, by measuring which one actually lifted up the moisture levels the most of a test group. 


Nivea's Soft Cream was pitted against Clinique's Dramatically Different moisturizing lotion and Embryolisse's Lait-Crème Concentré. Participants were split into three groups and were asked to apply moisturizer on one half of their faces for three weeks. The participants were not told about the brands of moisturizers they used, and were just sent home with plain containers, with the creams concealed as cream A, B, and C. When they came back and had their moisturized sides measured, Nivea emerged as the true winner! In terms of injecting water to the skin, only Nivea and Clinique managed to do so. The two also managed to change how the skin felt like. To everyone's shock, the most expensive one, Embryolisse, came in last in this test!

Y'all can check out the findings in this video!


And now, what spelled the difference? Humectants. Humectants are the ingredients that hold onto water in our skin. One of the most common ones, of course, is glycerin. The more glycerin there is in a product, the more hydrating it will turn out to be. Instead of being distracted by price tags, consumers can get better value for money by seeing the rank of glycerin in the ingredients list.

Surprisingly, none of the three products tested improved skin health, or the overall barrier of the skin against dryness and irritation. This finding, to me, just shows that skincare should really be done on a daily basis because your skin only benefits when you constantly nourish it with the right ingredients. I like to personally tell people that skincare works a lot like how vitamin supplements do. The moment you stop taking vitamins, you stop benefiting from them. We all know that we cannot drink one whole bottle of vitamin capsules in one day because our body will end up expelling the excess within days (or a day), and that once we expel it, we need to take it again to be nourished again.

So to sum it all up, wow, just wow! Who knew the best moisturizer was this affordable? Nivea Soft Cream only costs Php251 for a generous 200mL tub that will last the consumer several months.

And, I also learned the difference between Nivea Creme and Nivea Soft Cream! Turns out, Nivea Creme, the one in the tin cans, is a water-in-oil emulsion. What this means is that they embedded water droplets in oil, such that your skin is nourished first by the oil, then hydrated by the water. Nivea Soft Cream, on the other hand, is an oil-in-water emulsion. What this means is that there are oil droplets in water, such that your skin immediately is able to absorb the product through the lightweight water phase, and gets nourished later on by the oil content. What a discovery for me!

Manila, Philippines – For many couples, nothing can be more inspiring than to plan for that special day. Equally, nothing can be more heart-breaking than continuing to face challenges to keep those dreams beyond reach. In a heart-warming video released on February 14, HSBC makes a dream come true for an extraordinary couple who triumphed and overcame all odds to walk down the aisle.

Moises and Shara’s story is one of great perseverance and faith. The couple had been together for seven years, and as with any other, nothing could be more exciting than the prospect of finally being able to tie the knot. Throughout the years, the couple attempted to plan their wedding multiple times, but what with Shara’s growing financial responsibilities with her family and Moises needing to resign from his job due to an accident, the special day always remained elusive. 

Despite all this, the couple persevered and finally set their wedding to happen on December 2017. Before joy could fully settle in, the couple faced yet another set-back: Shara was diagnosed with a tumor in her neck. Most of the couple’s resources were pooled together to begin Shara’s treatment and yet again, their special day seemed beyond grasp.

Committed to helping people succeed and see their dreams come to life, HSBC made the dream wedding of Moises and Shara possible, and on February 3, the couple finally became Mr. and Mrs. Santos. “At HSBC, our ultimate goal is to empower people like Moises and Shara to realize their ambitions and dreams. We are driven by our long-term commitment to seeing people prosper despite any of life’s challenges and our promise is to always be there to help our customers succeed. It was our privilege to be able to help a couple that had such an inspiring story, and to continue building relationships with our customers and seeing them thrive,” shares Kris Werner, SVP and Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management for HSBC.

Watch how HSBC has turned this couple’s dream wedding into reality and empowers people to thrive above life’s challenges, visit: https://www.facebook.com/HSBCPhilippines.

A tradition in almost all of Ballet Manila’s performance seasons, Ballet & Ballads, once again returns to the stage to bring music and lyrics to life. And in an effort to bring ballet to the people and the people to the ballet, the country’s premier classical dance company plans to close its current season with a star-studded affair.

Ballet Manila CEO and Artistic Director Lisa Macuja-Elizalde muses about the latest installment, “It combines a singer with ballet numbers—an interesting concept that we’ve been experimenting with for quite some time now. It’s an entertaining way to enjoy ballet, especially for first-time audiences.”
Heartthrob crooner Christian Bautista is set to lead the roster of singers as a guest performer. He’ll sing some of his greatest theater hits, as well as songs from his latest album.

Joining Christian are artists from the Klassikal Musical Foundation (KMF) such as Andrew Fernando (Baritone), Jade Riccio (Soprano), Stephanie Aguilar (Soprano), Krisann Manikan Tan (Mezzo Soprano), Leo Angelo Lanuza (Tenor), and with the special participation of Dr. George T. Yang (Tenor). This marks the first-ever creative partnership between the country’s premier classical dance company and KMF.

The ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra, no less, will serenade the audience during the entire night. The acclaimed group has also prepared a very special Teleserye suitefeaturing a selection of classic hits from the ABS-CBN primetime repertoire. The show will surely trigger some nostalgia, especially among fans of Filipino pop culture.

Ballet & Ballads will also mark the world premiere of Martin Lawrance’s Aria, which will feature five acts covering classical operas. The British choreographer previously partnered with Ballet Manila for the highly acclaimed Rebel and Amid Shadows. Lisa shares, “He really is a genius when it comes to weaving a ballet together and exploring movement with different kinds of music. The idea was first to combine musical theater and ballet. But when he proposed the classical arias instead, I told him to go for it!”

With such a powerhouse lineup for Ballet & Ballads, the audience is set for pure enjoyment when the curtains go up in Aliw Theater. As the Prima Ballerina sums it up best, “Dancing creates a visual representation of music, and when that music is played live by the ABS-CBN Philharmonic and sung by Christian Bautista and the KMF classical singers, it complements Ballet Manila’s mastery of the Vaganova technique. It is really a concert like no other.”

Show Schedules
The newest installment of “Ballet & Ballads” will premiere on February 10, 2018 at 6:00PM at the Aliw Theater. There will be three other shows: February 11, (3:00PM), February 17 (6:00PM), and February 18 (3:00PM).
For more information about the shows, including ticket prices and schedules, you may visit www.balletmanila.com.ph or follow Ballet Manila on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Tickets are also available through all TicketWorld outlets. Please call 891-9999 or visit www.ticketworld.com.ph for more information. In addition, those who are planning to watch all the shows may take advantage of the company’s Season Subscription Programs, which offer up to 50% discount on ticket prices.

Women around the globe show that once they hit their 30s, age lines, dark spots, and uneven complexion start to surface on their skin. While global studies show that signs of aging appear at various ages, it is at this age when skincare becomes critical as accumulated exposure to UV light, pollution, and stress have caused their skin to show these signs of aging. Ladies, now is the best time to invest on your skin.as the World’s No.1 Anti-Aging Brand and a trendsetter for beauty innovations, L’Oréal Skincare Expert/Paris invites every Filipina to unlock the secret to timeless beauty with REVITALIFT LASER X3. 

What Filipinas need to know about skin health and anti-aging: 

  • As early as 20s, natural aging already begins. Once women hit their 30’s, skin health processes slow down and the need to upgrade to anti-aging regimen becomes imperative. 
  • Sunscreen is one of most important anti-aging essentials. If you’re currently not wearing anti-aging product packed with SPF every day, now is the best time to start. The sun causes 90% of wrinkles with intense and frequent sun exposure lessening the ability of the skin to heal on its own. Preventing this by wearing sunscreen is easier than smoothing lines and other signs of aging later on. 
  • Address the neck, chest and backs of the hands as you would your face. These areas can give away your true age! Choose your cleansers carefully. Don’t use bar soap for facial cleansing, it causes skin to get very dry. 
  • Skin around the eyes is the most sensitive part of the face, it’s time to get serious about taking care of your eye area to prevent future crow’s feet. 
  • Reconsidering lifestyle choices such us giving up smoking cigarettes, limiting alcohol intake, and curbing how much processed sugar you intake. 


  • Achieving perfect skin is not complete without a proper and effective skincare regimen. Get that youthful glow with the no. 1 anti-aging line from L’Oréal Paris, Revitalift Laser X3.
