Local beauty brand QUICKFX has come a long way since their early days. From entering the skincare market with their iconic sachet format, to expanding their cult-favorite Pimple Eraser line, to formulating conscious and sensitive skin-friendly ranges, QUICKFX excites and delights with innovative products championing effective ingredients that deliver fast results, at prices everyone loves—and it looks like they aren’t slowing down any time soon. 

In fact, it seems like they’re just getting started—and this time, they’re here to make sure that you get the glowing summer skin of your dreams all year round with their exciting, new releases.  

Enter the QUICKFX SunGlo Weekend held last June 10-11 set at Patio by Balai Norte at La Union. This gorgeous seaside hotel served as the perfect backdrop for the brand’s special guests to learn about their newest releases, including two brand new sunscreens—the QUICKFX Vita Suncreen and Super UV Sun Spray—as well as a brand new, fruit antioxidant-powered line: the QUICKFX Glo Smoothies range. Their mission: to create products that help protect, brighten and hydrate the skin for the ultimate all-year round summer glow.

Smooth, flawless, glowing skin starts off with adequate sun protection, and no one knows this better than QUICKFX themselves—and they’ve got you covered. The first new release is the QUICKFX Vita Sunscreen, which promises 3X Sun Care Action. This lightweight, fast-absorbing face and body sunscreen lotion is formulated with SPF 50 PA+++, as well as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Niacinamide, Avocado and Chamomile Extracts. For sunscreen touch-ups throughout the day—which are essential, especially in our sweltering Philippine summers—the brand new QUICKFX Super UV Sunspray will do the trick. This spray format sunscreen also promises SPF 50 PA+++, is formulated with Vitamin E, Sunflower Oil, Niacinamide, and Green Tea Extract, and comes in a spray can for a smooth, even application every time. These sunscreens promise to be reef-safe, kid-safe, and sweat-proof, and are guaranteed to be completely invisible once absorbed by the skin—goodbye, white cast!

With such innovative formulas, you’d wonder if these sun screens would make a pretty significant dent in your bank account—but don’t fret. The Vita Sunscreen retails at PHP499 with 200mL, while the Super UV Sunspray comes in a 150mL aerosol can and retails at PHP399. Price point on point, as expected.

A glowing complexion doesn’t just stop at sun protection—in fact, it should be maintained with a generous serving of fruits, so go ahead and give your skin its daily dose with the brand new QUICKFX Glo Smoothies line. This new, exciting addition to the brand is their foray into harnessing the benefits of fruit-powered antioxidants, and is designed to be like a detoxifying fruit smoothie for your face. The goal: to give your skin the most even, gorgeous glow ever.

QUICKFX Glo Smoothies made its debut with two products, starting with the QUICKFX Glo Smoothies Brightening Serum Cleanser. This gentle face cleanser features a delicious blend of Watermelon and Peach Extracts, Niacinamide, and Ascorbic Acid, and is designed to detoxify,

brighten, and even out the skin in as little as 7 days. Plus, with its hydrating serum formula, this cleanser is guaranteed to clean your skin thoroughly without stripping it dry. Next, the QUICKFX Glo Smoothies Ultra Brightening Serum. Also formulated with a cocktail of Watermelon and Peach Extracts, Niacinamide and Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, this light-as-air, easily absorbed serum doesn’t just brighten the skin—it also aims to help prevent acne and wrinkles over time.

Perhaps the only thing more exciting than the new releases themselves would be their price point. The Glo Smoothies Brightening Serum Cleanser retails at P299 for 100mL, while the Glo Smoothies Ultra Brightening Serum comes in 2 sizes: in 10g for the iconic sachet format, and in 40mL for the full size, priced at PHP109 and P399 respectively. Not bad for products that are 100% made in Korea—what a steal.

The best part: these versatile new releases aren’t just great on their own—in fact, they’re designed to work even better together to help you achieve that glowing, summer glow all year ‘round.  

What else went down at the SunGlo Weekend? The launch didn’t just provide the attendees with the opportunity to learn about and test out the brand’s new product releases—it also set their minds in airplane mode for two days. Guests had dinner and drinks at The Lark and were invited to various activities the next day to encourage mindfulness and sustainability, like outdoor yoga and a brand-initiated coastal cleanup led by the QUICKFX brand team, Angeline Agustin, Mari Baretto-Syquia, Frances Jabeguero and Marven Abat, Vice President of The La Union Surf Club. The event provided not just an educational weekend, but one filled with rest and mindfulness not just of oneself but also of the environment as well. 

Itching to get glowing with QUICKFX? The new Vita Sunscreen, Super UV Sunspray and Glo Smoothies products are officially available for you to try! Check them out exclusively in Watsons stores nationwide. Shop the new releases on the Watsons App, as well as on the official Watsons Stores on ShopeeMall and LazMall.

Embrace life every moment at Two Botanika Nature Residences

Two Botanika offers a “lanai” living experience with deep balconies, inspired by a design feature seen in tropical countries, allowing better airflow and spacious living. It promises world-class luxury living spaces with 70% of the whole development dedicated to open spaces. Families and individuals also get convenient access to business and lifestyle hubs in the south for work and leisure. But there’s more that residents can look forward to.

Imagine a quiet morning with a gentle breeze while sipping a cup of coffee. A panoramic view of lush green surroundings greets you as you wait for the sunrise. It’s the kind of life that welcomes the future occupants of the recently unveiled 1-bedroom, east-facing units at Two Botanika Nature Residences.

Two Botanika offers a “lanai” living experience with deep balconies, inspired by a design feature seen in tropical countries, allowing better airflow and spacious living. It promises world-class luxury living spaces with 70% of the whole development dedicated to open spaces. Families and individuals also get convenient access to business and lifestyle hubs in the south for work and leisure. But there’s more that residents can look forward to.

In celebration of its unveiling, an exclusive event was held at the Filigree Showsuites, styled by celebrity event stylist Robert Blancaflor, with performances by the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra. 

“We are happy to announce through this event that the east-facing 1-bedroom units at Two Botanika are now open. Mornings will be something to look forward to because the first thing residents would see are the sunrise and a beautiful view — the life they deserve,” said Daphne Sanchez, head of Filigree, the brand portfolio behind the residential masterpieces in Metro Manila and Metro Clark.

Redefining luxury with space

In charge of Two Botanika’s efficient unit space planning is New York-trained, Tina Periquet from Periquet Galicia Inc. To further upscale the lifestyle of future residents, the firm meticulously designed every space so its use can be maximized. The units are designed in a curved, well-defined shape to make residents feel safe in their sanctuary. Outside their home, the surrounding is peaceful and safe, giving residents the freedom to wander around without worries. 

Tina Periquet shared, “My ultimate task is to curate experiences in the home. So, [I designed Two Botanika in a way that] there is a nice sense of community and it’s really very much in keeping with the overall idea of being in a healthful place where you can just relax and not feel confined the way you normally would in a condo tower. There is a sense of expansiveness, openness, actual ventilation, and daylight.”

The newly-opened 1-bedroom units are 70–76 sq m in size, much bigger than the average 35–55 sq m 1-bedroom units from other properties. These sizeable abodes of Two Botanika allow residents to move around comfortably in a large space.

Experience a life of luxury in your own sanctuary

Beyond the spacious unit, residents can experience convenience and an elevated lifestyle with the amenities offered. There’s no need to go out of town for a quick dip in a swimming pool surrounded by nature as Two Botanika has tiered swimming pools and a sunbathing deck residents can use. Amenities can be found across all three towers, accessible to all residents. Residents can enjoy all of these while fostering a sense of community with the other residents. Parents can have fun and create core memories with their kids in the indoor play area and game room.

Residents can live an active lifestyle without leaving the property with its outdoor play area and a fully-fitted gym. If they want to unwind, residents can enjoy the peace and quiet while admiring the scenic view from the Line Garden, or strike up a conversation with others in the sky lounge, greenhouse, or lawn space.

For residents looking to socialize and are already members of The Palms Country Club — an accredited member club of the prestigious International Associate Clubs, Two Botanika has a gate exclusive to its residents who are members of the club, a few steps away from their unit. Residents who are members can experience an elevated lifestyle in the club. They can dine, unwind, relax, or celebrate special moments with their loved ones at The Palms Country Club.

Every waking moment opens a plethora of exciting possibilities for Two Botanika residents. Two Botanika offers a huge living space for them to comfortably lounge in and amenities where they can unwind and create more precious memories whether alone or with their loved ones.
