A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of being invited to the launch of Belo Essentials, a skin whitening product line created by Intelligent Skin Care Incorporated, an affiliate of the Belo Medical Group. The event was held in the private sanctuary of Dr. Vicky Belo in Makati. As soon as Cherry and I stepped out of our ride, white uniformed servers met us with hot towels and welcome drinks. I knew this was going to be an interesting event.
After everyone got their fill of the wonderful foodÃ¢â‚¬â€wagyu sirloin steak, no less, prepared by Margarita Fores of PepatoÃ¢â‚¬â€Dr. Belo and daughter Cristalle gave us a short introduction about Belo Essentials.
Dr. Belo decided to launch a whitening line because in her 17 years of clinical experience, skin whitening products and procedures are among the most requested by her patients. She also added that her dream in life Ã¢â‚¬Å“is to make the world beautiful, one person at a time.Ã¢â‚¬Â However, she is aware that not everyone can afford to go to a beauty clinic. So, she thought of bringing her clinic’s expertise out to the people, to the premium mass market.
All the products are developed with the Dermlight Skin System, a two-step whitening system that a) controls melanin production and b)prevents melanin transfer to the surface of the skin. Cristalle explains that all other whitening products available in the market today can only do either one.
After explaining all the research that went into developing the products, how Dr. Belo personally chose the scents and package design, tested the products herself over and over again, Cristalle then revealed the biggest surprise of all. The products are affordably-priced! A bar of whitening soap is less than P40, the whitening face wash less than P80! (See complete list below)
I tried out 3 of the products as soon as I got home. The Belo Smoothening Whitening Body Bar has pink micro beads for gentle exfoliation. I like it because it has a very mild scent and suds up pretty fast-hence making it very economical to use. I also felt squeaky clean after using it.
The Belo Whitening Face Wash on the other hand is a clear, gel-type facial wash. Again, the mild scent is a big plus because I get overwhelmed by facial washes that use too much perfume.
The Belo Essentials Whitening Lotion with SPF 15 comes in a nice upside-down tube that lets you clean out the container to the last drop. I love the fact that it is non-greasy and can even out your skin tone with continuous use! Say goodbye to dark elbows and knees!
After only 7 days of using the products, I noticed a slight lightening of my skin. For those who want celebrity-like luminous skin, try the Belo Essentials Whitening products. It carries the Belo name and quality without the hefty price tag.
