Yesterday, I shared with you news about the ongoing Globe Online Beauty Fair, through which I got a box filled with Ellana Mineral Cosmetics, which is one of the beloved beauty brands, both local and from all over the world, that you can shop from the comforts of your own home. Until September 30, 2018, enjoy exclusive deals and discounts from your favorite beauty brands across four platforms: Amazon, Sephora, Althea, and Lazada (which is where you can shop Ellana Minerals). To enjoy a 10% discount on Lazada, just spend a minimum of P1,000 and use the voucher code GLOBEBEAUTYFAIR upon check out.
Now that I’ve shared with you this exciting beauty news, allow me to gush about my beauty haul from Ellana (pronounced Eh-lah-nah, not el-ya-na). Touted as the Philippines’ #1 mineral makeup brand, it’s manufactured locally from ingredients imported from the US, Japan, Korea, and Germany. Made of talc-free, vegan, cruelty-free ingredients, its products can be safely used by even those with sensitive skin or those with special needs such as pregnant or nursing women. This is music to my ears because I now know I can turn to its products when I finally get pregnant (hopefully soon)!
Ellana’s shade range was chosen to reflect the spectrum of Southeast Asian skin tones. The brand also has an eco-friendly refill concept: packaging is either reusable or recyclable (or both), with the pricing of refills incentivizing customers to save by reusing packaging.
