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.

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.

How tailored microinsurance products are key to relevance and adoption in PH

As an insurtech, Igloo and its partners have been instrumental in facilitating a wide array of microinsurance products that safeguard the unique needs of digital natives and underserved sectors.

Published

For most people, understanding insurance boils down to the four most common types: life, health, auto, and long-term disability. While awareness of insurance importance is increasing, the aforementioned traditional insurance products are failing to resonate with many people due to various reasons including affordability, accessibility, and relevance. These factors have largely contributed to the low insurance penetration in the Philippines, which stands at 1.68% as of September 2023. 

This is where microinsurance is changing the game as insurtechs and insurance companies have introduced personalized microinsurance products that cater directly to the unique lifestyles and needs of Filipinos as they go through various stages of their lives. As an insurtech, Igloo and its partners have been instrumental in facilitating a wide array of microinsurance products that safeguard the unique needs of digital natives and underserved sectors. These products run the gamut from travel insurance, to electronics protection, e-commerce purchase protection, and even protection for the gamers’ health.

“While traditional insurance products may come with high premiums and broad coverage, microinsurance products are designed to provide targeted protection against specific risks that are relevant to our daily lives. By offering affordable products that address immediate needs, microinsurance can serve as the gateway to broader insurance protection and may be key to boosting insurance penetration,” said Roberto Vea, Commercial Lead at Igloo Philippines. 

Among the most popular insurance products Igloo PH and its partners facilitated are Gadget Protection and Online Shopping Protection. In 2023, Gadget Protection sold 10.3 million policies while Online Shopping Protection sold 1.98 million policies highlighting strong customer demand for coverage against electronic device damages and online purchase risks.

“Microinsurance empowers individuals to protect themselves against risks they face today, whether it’s safeguarding their electronics from liquid damage or ensuring affordable coverage for spontaneous travel adventures. At Igloo, we believe it’s important for insurers and insurtechs like ourselves to continuously develop relevant products and make sense for our customers,” Mario added.

As of September 2023, microinsurance premiums in the Philippines have increased by 19.6% to P10.16 billion, and over 56 million Filipinos are now insured under microinsurance policies. 

“The growth of the microinsurance industry underscores how the approach to insurance awareness is no longer one size fits all–it must evolve alongside our digital-first lifestyles, safeguarding our ever-expanding virtual assets and providing peace of mind in the face of modern risks,” Vea explained. “This also means ensuring that the products are where our consumers are–online, thus making sure that the entire buyer’s journey from consideration, to purchase, and claims must be easy, accessible, and uncomplicated.”

According to a recent study conducted by Manulife, 41% of Gen Z individuals (aged 18-24 years old, according to McKinsey) plan to purchase insurance online in the next 12 months. Furthermore, the study found that 33% of millennials (aged 25-44 years old) have already bought insurance online. This indicates that younger generations are increasingly preferring and adopting online channels for purchasing insurance.

This is where the availability of embedded insurance was able to expand the channels of distribution, providing consumers with a convenient way to discover, evaluate, and purchase products in just a few clicks. Igloo does this through partnerships with major e-commerce platforms like Lazada and Shopee, leading payment platforms such as DANA in Indonesia and GCash in the Philippines, and retail chains like Circle K in Vietnam.

“As Igloo continues to play a vital role in making microinsurance accessible to millions of Filipinos, we remain committed to prioritizing products that not only raise insurance awareness and adoption but are also relevant, innovative, and customer-centric,” Vea ended.
