The Skin Magical Caravan: Helping Communities

Friday, February 28, 2020

I saw Ghie Pangilinan on the cover of Experience Travel Living mag a couple weeks ago (which I also happen to have an article about Antipolo), the woman who owns Skin Magical, a very successful beauty brand in the Philippines. The young CEO has already made a success out of her brainchild in 4 years and wanted to actually share her success with other people.

As Filipinos still look for the easiest and most affordable way to stay and look nice, it is evident that this market segment is growing because everybody wants to take care of themselves. Recently, the beauty magnate started 2020 with the Skin Magical Learn and Earn Caravan + Skin Magical Cares (as part of her CSR efforts). A total of 150 individuals from her own community in Morong, Rizal where she taught how they too could start their businesses and a little brief on how to do online selling. This includes regular joes, mothers, just about anyone who wanted to make a living. 

Ms. Ghie Pangilinan says “My goal is to share my business to a lot of people. I give them advice on how to succeed in this field and how to treat clients like friends. I also shared my story and how this wife of an OFW made it in the beauty industry. It takes a lot of patience, hard work and honesty.”

The caravan also went on in other places like Bulacan, Quezon City, Pampanga, Caloocan, Laguna and also featured a live selling “Gandang Palaban Reseller” game where participants won reseller packages. This February, they will conduct more in Nueva Ecija, Zambales, Tarlac and Bataan. They have also conducted relief operations during the Batangas crisis where a lot of people were displaced by the Taal Volcano eruption. They helped 400 families and continue to do so in the weeks after. 

Aside from these activities, Ghie Pangilinan is going to have her Skin Magical book and brochure published via ABS-CBN Publishing within the year. She will be sharing her success story to more people in hopes to inspire them to work hard and achieve what she has had in the last few years. That’s just awesome to see her help and lead by example, I’m gonna try the products this month and hope it does wonders!


Red Carpet Photos + Review of US AGAIN

It was a nice evening to see stars and watch much talked about US AGAIN, the film starred by Jane Oineza and RK Bagatsing. This is one of Jane's biggest break as lead actress and her character isn't easy to do because one twist in the end would spell spoil to the whole movie. Jane's fans would find her a little more mature than usual, as she delves on relationships, liking a guy for appearance amidst existing ones, destroying friendships. It made her reflect because of the norms of society, of what is right, and made her choose what her heart desires. She prayed for a man in her life and she got it, this all happened inside churches which we all know our friends do.

Although it was a little predictable story wise, you will still feel for the character of Jane and RK. The twist shouldn't be told as it will spoil it all. That particular reason would destroy you, it did that to Jane's character a bit but as with all movies, it will end in a nice note. You kinda hope and pray it does with what they went through. You're bound to root for them, for the wrong or right reasons. Is it a good watch? I guess so, more so if you are a fan of Jane. She's shining her own star (like the hard work she does) and you can see how she carries herself in her movie roles, you can expect her good portrayal here than her other movies. Regal is her boat and she's sailing. RK also didn't look awkward even if he looked (shall I say) slightly older than Jane, that got blurred right from the start.

Anyway, here are shots from the red carpet, enjoy!

Make sure you watch US AGAIN as it has officially started showing on theaters yesterday. Do it for the story, do it for Jane Oineza.
