World-class Artwork in Kipling’s Fall 2016 and Alex in Bloom Collection is LOVE!
October 16, 2016
Art and fashion put into one is elegance. And when elegance meets Kipling, you’ll get style and versatility.
I was totally stoked when I got invited to their SM Mall of Asia store re-opening and Alex in Bloom collection launch. My mom and I love Kipling for the longest time. I remember she has quite a beautiful variety. I personally adore this set of highly-anticipated exclusive bags because of the visual artworks that became Kipling’s backdrops. The Fall 2016 selection is all about great emotions and glamour.
What, or should I say “Who”, made this fall collection so special is Alexandra Lasseur. She’s a Canadian painter and illustrator, known for her mishmash designs reminding memories of the season. She’s well-known in the Facebook community BerlinArt Parasites, and her creations have been highlighted in different international scenes, including the exhibit of her illustrations during Fashion Week in Milan where her pieces were featured by the famous Italian designers Prada, Gucci and Versace.
For Alessandra, her designs are inspired by flora and fauna, the natural habitat of the Kipling monkey. Deep blues with hints of perky red hues are perfect to welcome the cold weather.
Alex in Bloom consists of functional and chic shoulder bags, sling bag and backpack. I love how simultaneously sophisticated and fun they are! Aside from the inspiring colors in the artworks, Kipling made sure that the textures will be fresh and unique as well.
There are mini backpacks for little girls, which are super cute in plums and floral patterns.
I must tell you though it’s a lot better to see them with your own eyes. Fall will indeed come alive in this new world-class and premium set.
Come and visit the new location of Kipling at the 2nd floor, Main Mall, SM Mall Of Asia, and be mesmerized with the store’s bigger and revamped interior.
What really happens to skin when we get pimples or acne?
October 09, 2016
I recently received these winning products from Céleteque DERMOSCIENCE ACNE SOLUTIONS line. These products are a specialized line of Dermo-created products that aim to clear up acne and control oily skin.
I consider myself lucky but I'm still human and still get one or two from time to time because even the freshest face still get plagued by pimples. While these pimples and blemishes can cause unsightly redness and bumps, it can also affect your confidence. To stave off pimples and consequently boost confidence, Céleteque DERMOSCIENCE™has come up with its ACNE SOLUTIONS line that specifically targets pimples.This is a line of highly specialized Dermatologist-created products that aim to clear up acne and control oily skin.With regular use, studies have shown a substantial improvement of 80% clearer skin in as early as one week.
What really happens to skin when we get pimples or acne?
Oil, sweat, and dead skin cells from the dermis go out to the epidermis or the surface of the skin through the hair follicle. However, for acne-prone skin, oil, sweat and dead skin cells easily get trapped inside hair follicles, forming a plug. It then forms a bump (called a comedone) on the surface of the skin. This plug creates an environment where bacteria can thrive and can infect the bumps thus making it inﬂamed. Once it swells, the follicle wall breaks into the dermis, signaling white blood cells to ﬁght the infection. This results to redness, swelling, and formation of pustule, making the pimple or blemish rather unsightly.
Céleteque’s Acne Solutions
To address the concern of pimples and blemishes and attack it from the source, Céleteque offers a line of Dermo-grade acne solutions. Each product is fitted with pimple-fighting active ingredients infused into the different products in the line.
An effective anti-pimple regimen begins with proper cleansing. Céleteque DermoScience™ Acne Solutions Acne Cleansing Gel(PhP 270.00 for 50 ml or PhP 495.00 for 100 ml) is a thorough cleanser that has Hydroxy Acid (in the form of Salicylic Acid) that can penetrate hair follicles and exfoliate dead skin cells, thus removing blockage and decreasing comedones on the skin.

★ TREAT ★
A favorite in the Acne Solutions line is the Céleteque DermoScience™ Acne Solutions Acne Spot Corrector Gel(PhP 169.00 for 5 ml). It’s spot solution that is infused with Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) and Poly Hydroxy Acid (PHA) that aid in exfoliating dead skin cells and help in diminishing pimples and other acne imperfections. Aside from combating present pimples, it also contains Lilac Leaf Cell Culture Extract that helps reduce sebum production to prevent future acne breakouts.
The Céleteque DermoScience™ Acne Solutions Acne Clearing Facial Moisturizer Gel (PhP 335.00 for 50 ml) has Salicylic Acid that breaks down blockage in pores and Acnacidol™ BG that helps reduce sebum secretion and inhibits the development of acne-causing bacteria.

As it also has French Spring Water for signiﬁcant smoothening and moisturization of the skin. May these innovative Dermo breakthrough acne solutions help nourish your skin and keep you blemish-free always.
