Here’s a little secret about me: I’m obsessed with skincare. I don’t talk about it because I’d rather let people think “I woke up like this.” But I’m becoming more vocal with my obsession because I want to trade tips and recommendations with my fellow skincare addicts, and it’s part of my personal mission to open up more.
For a rundown on what I do with my body, I cleanse, tone, and moisturize twice a day (I have a day cream and a night cream). Twice a week I exfoliate my face and body, and once a week I put on a face mask. I use an organic shaving gel lightly scented with sandalwood. I use different kinds of soaps and lotions. It’s not that I’m excessively vain, I just want to always look my best.
I use a lot of creams, liquids, and organic products, but strangely, I don’t take a lot of supplements, except for the occasional vitamin C. I have a new addition to my skincare routine, and it’s the Snow Crystal White Tomato.
Supplements are important because it heals and works on your body from within, as opposed to the topical application of creams. I love the Snow Crystal White Tomato because it’s packed with antioxidants that remove free radicals and repair skin by making it lighter, smoother, and more even. It also acts as a natural sunscreen so it will slow down the signs of aging!
The product comes in both tablet and soap form, and contains three important ingredients: Colorless Carotenoids or PhytoflORAL (from organic white tomatoes) that lightens and protects your skin, Kohjin L-Glutathione that works as an antioxidant, and Bioperine (powdered black pepper extract) to help your body absorb the first two ingredients. The Snow Crystal White Tomato is the first product to combine the three!
On the other hand, the soap has IBR Snowflakes derived from dormant summer snowflake bulbs to slow down skin aging, PhytoflORAL, Gigawhite to lighten skin tone, and the ACE-B3 complex, a combination of aloe vera, vitamins C and E, and Niacinamide B3 to moisturize and clear blemishes.
The products were recently launched in the market, along with Marian Rivera-Dantes as its ambassador. She’s the perfect face for the Snow Crystal White Tomato as she still looks young, fresh, and radiant after being in the showbiz industry for 10 years.
As for pricing, it’s more affordable compared to other products of a similar nature. A box of 30 costs P2,985, and the bar of soap costs P299. Similar products are priced P5,000 and up! You only need to take one tablet per day so a box is good for a month.
The Snow Crystal White Tomato is a great addition to my skincare routine. Some may call it vain or unnecessary, but as RuPaul keeps saying, “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
