By Camille Santiago Published Feb 18, 2022 5:17 pm Updated Feb 18, 2022 6:30 pm

Just yesterday we were counting down that days to the New Year, now we're in the middle of another month. There are so many reasons to love February—from it being the shortest month of the year, to the many holidays to celebrate this month such as the Lunar New Year and Valentine's Day.

If you think the festivities are over, just wait. This month of love, we're giving you another reason to smile: new beauty product releases. From fresh new scents to lust over to new beauty lines and to never-miss sales and promos!

Happy shopping!

Avon Sweet Honesty The One

If you're looking for a new every day scent, look no further with Avon's newest Sweet Honesty The One (P309). Made with Red berries, Jasmine sambac, and tonka beans, you'll smell fresh and sweet all day.

blk Skin

Staying true to its tagline, "uncomplicated beauty," blk releases its newest vegan, cruelty free, and ethically sourced skincare line called blk skin Brightening & Soothing Collection that targets dull skin and dark spots. This line combines Niacinamide, a powerful vitamin that lightens dark spots and acne marks, and blk's signature White Bouquet Complex, "a mix of plant extracts that soothe, brighten, and moisturize."

In this collection are the Brightening & Soothing Cream +Niacinamide (P499), a gel cream that helps brighten overall complexion, Brightening & Soothing Serum +Niacinamide (P599), a serum that visibly brighten skin and fade dark spots, Brightening & Soothing Face Mask +Niacinamide (P149), and the Cleansing & Toning Makeup Removing Wipes (P249).

TRESemmé Root Touch-Up & Keratin Smooth Shine Serum

No time to visit the salon? No problem. TRESemmé has products that let you do quick touch-ups wherever you go.

Their newest grab-and-go Root Touch-Up (P425) can easily cover roots with temporary hair color. It comes in three variants: black, dark brown, and light brown. While the Keratin Smooth Shine Serum (P455), which contains keratin and marula oil, gives you a glossy (not oily!), smooth hair.

Oh, did we mention they're going to be on sale this February? Get 30% off on Lazada from February 15 to 19 and on Shopee from February 21-25 (all products), and on Watsons stores from February 14 to 20 (dark brown and black Root Touch-Up Spray variants only).

BYS Lip Nectar

This new lippie line from BYS Cosmetics is not just for beauty addicts, but for K-drama stans as well! ICYMI: Han So-hee is the new face of BYS and she co-created a line with the brand called Lip Nectar Liquid Lipstick (P499). They're velvety soft matte liquid lipsticks that come eight shades that are named after flowers: Blossom, Cherry, Tulip, Poppy, Rose, Dragonlily, Orchid, and Poison Ivy.

Chu Chü Beauty

We don't know about chu, but we're feeling this new Filipino beauty brand, Chu Chü Beauty! Chu Chü Beauty is a Korean-inspired makeup line that coveres all bases—from brows to eyes to cheeks and lips. While its fun packaging brings us nostalgia, it certainly does its job, unlike the ones we used to play with when we were kids.

There's the The Juicy Dew Tint (P199), a hydrating, ultra-pigmented lip tint with a glossy finish; an eye and cheek palette called Color Bento Box (P349); 3-in-1 multibalm sticks called Multiuse Heart Sticks (P249); the Lipstacks (P299), a stackable 4-in-1 lip tower; and Skinny Brow Pencil (P149).

This line of "made-to-play" beauty products will not only look cute on your vanity kits, but also on yourselves—they're at pocket-friendly prices, too (nothing is above P349)!

Front Row BTS Photobook Package

Love skincare and BTS? Well, Frontrow is offering a BTS Photobook Package, which consists of the We Remember: BTS Photobook and Luxx Products.

Aside from the photobook that includes 140 pages of your favorite K-pop group, it also includes US-made supplements like the LUXXE PROTECT, which is an energy-boosting supplement with Pure Grapeseed Extract, and the LUXXE RENEW, an anti-aging supplement with 8 Berry Extract.

It also contains South Korean beauty products like three Dynamic Duo DD sticks and 2 bottles of Instabright Body Creme with SPF 25. You can get all these at P5,888 instead of P16,220—such a steal!


Say goodbye to your stinky and toxic polishes because a new nail polish brand is in town! Meet Nami, a non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, water-based, environment-friendly nail polish brand that's developed in the UK.

Unlike the traditional nail polish, Nami water-based nail polish (P499 each) is developed using eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives.

Snailwhite Pink Vitamin C Micellar Soap

It has been a long practice to use a different soap for the face and the body—until we met Snailwhite Pink Vitamin C Micellar Soap (P119/60g). It's a gentle face and body beauty bar that's specially formulated for oily and combination skin, as it helps skin achieve its glow.

Formulated with the signature Snailwhite Potion,—Snail Mucin, Vitamin C and Bamboo Water—this micellar soap helps visibly improve skin texture, skin tone, and control excess oil.
