L'oreal Luxe: Summer Essentials and Must-try's

L'oreal Luxe gatheres some of Manila's finest beauty bloggers one afternoon at the stylish Romula Cafe for sweets and mocktails to introduce their last products. From Lancome, Kiehl's, Shu Uemura, and their fragrance, Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren.  

Lancome Philippines Summer 2012

Lancome has got you covered this Summer with their UV Expert GN-Shield BB Complete, Blance Expert, Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara and Tresor Midnight Rose. Keep your skin flawless and fair with Blanc Expert, even and protected from the sun with BB Complete, your eyes more open with Hypnose Doll Eyes and your skin sensual with Midnight Rose. If you prefer higher coverage and a brightening foundation, opt for Teint Miracle Foundation.

Although I much prefer whitening products for the colder months (I find to be more effective during cooler season), Blanc Expert seems to be a good maintenance for thsoe who refuse to tan. I still want to reserve my thought on the BB Complete until I've fully road-tested it. I am, however, head over heels over Hypnose and Midnight Rose.

All of these are not available at your favorite Lancome boutique and counters.

Raplh Lauren Big Pony Collection 
With  the success of Ralph Lauren's , it has released its female counter part, Big Pony Collection. It comes in 4 sporty chic scents that can match almost all female personas. Number 1 being sporty, 2 as Sensual, 3 as Sporty and 4, stylish. My pick? Number 4. The mix of wild cherry and amber has that soft oriental sweet scent.

Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia and Acqua Di Gio

I've spoken of Giorgio Armani's annual efforts to provide clean water for places who lack of it with every purchase of their number 1 fragrance, Acqua di Gio and Aqua Di Gioia. Talk about giving back while you get to take home something in return.

Acqua Di Gioia Essenza

Thi also includes their latest fragrance, Acqua di Gioia Essenza. It has some of my favorite notes, bloom lemons, pink pepper and jasmine. I admit I prefer this over the signature original, Acqua di Gioia.

Shu Uemura x Mamechiyo Skin Purifier and UV Base

Shu Uemura gives their famous high-grade cleansing oils Skin Purifier and UV Base a stylish makeover through the deisgns of contemporary Japanese Kimono designer, Mamechiyo. With each variant having a style and character of its own, you now not only have an effective cleansing oil but also a piece of art standing in vanity. As always, these designs are limited.

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Ultime 8

Another thing to look forward to in Shu Uemura is their newest addition, Ultime 8 Surpreme Beauty. It boasts of 8 ingredients (camellia, ginger root, shea butter, jojoba, soy, sunflower, corn and olive) that will talk cleansing your skin into a whole different level. It will be released this May.

Kiehl's Philippines Summer 2012

Summer calls for more attention to the skin than any other season. For 161 years, Kiehl's at the forefront of making it its business to give the best the skin the most natural and most effective products. This season, Kiehl's Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate that targets wrinkles and (of course!) fine lines. Protect your skin from the harsh sun with the UV Light Daily Defense with SPF 50 PA+++. For more seious anti-aging needs, visit the nearest Kiehl's boutique near you?

Kiehl's Philippines is also in the process of opening more stores at the Metro's popular malls to ease the burden of travel for Kiehl's fans. How exciting right?
