beauty blog: jeunesse

late last month, we attended a press con to introduce beauty products not available on supermarket shelves or fancy shops. these are available only in dermatologists' offices (which we have never seen the inside of—pramis!). the launch/lunch was held at mr. jones (which deserves a separate post. oh, the food!). we were not familiar with the brands introduced that day, but these potent products from europe and the US are distributed in the philippines by a company called jeunesse dermaceutical distributors—and they have been for years now, but only decided to promote it heavily now. we were given a few samples to try at home. we must confess, we haven't tried any of them yet, but we'll get there (kami pa!).

these come in capsule form and must be taken twice daily, 30 minutes before a meal. we keep forgetting to take them—after meals is so much easier to remember! this is supposed to maintain healthy skin from the inside and is highly recommended for acne-prone skin. (but doesn't the box remind you of condom packaging? ;-)

we're always on the lookout for daily sun protection for the face and this is ideal because it's tinted. can replace your everyday foundation, especially during summer

oily skin stopped being a problem for us a long time ago, so this one goes to the hubby. guys are always complaining about their oily T-zones (and they'll never admit to a little pressed powder now and again!)

dark under-eye circles are not caused by lack of sleep or too much wine or too much caffeine (who keeps spreading these myths??). it's our dad's fault!! (as in, it's hereditary, just to make it clear ha)

if you like to keep your nails long or abuse them with weekly manicures, it might be a good idea to take this. once a day

anti-wrinkle and anti-ageing? helloooo. no brainer
