I have a bit of good news to share!
I am now a brand ambassador for the Global Filipino skin care and cosmetics line, VMV Hypoallergenics.
My first experience with VMV was when I was a high school student (circa 1997-98), this was the time my friends and I were starting to experiment with makeup. I was walking at the local department store in Cebu City when I spotted VMV’s counter. I was initially attracted to their packaging, it was white and rectangular. Easy to use and easy to hide in my back pack.
I lost touch with the brand over the years especially during my days as a pageant queen (read as drag queen) and when other international brands started coming into the country.

My relationship with VMV Hypoallergenics was rekindled in 2012 when I received a phone call from a friend who was at that time working for VMV. Helen told me that they had a project in the works and they wanted me to come in to talk about the said project. I went to their office and met with the marketing team, the creative team and the CEO/Creative Director, Laura. We talked about different looks, skin care, lots of makeup, icons… anything under the cosmeceutical universe. I left that meeting as if I just had dinner with good friends. Light and bubbly. Two weeks later, I was hired to be the makeup artist for their advertising materials.
This was the time when I started to get to know a wide array of skin care and makeup products that today has proven to be an integral part of my bathroom counter and makeup kit.
There was a surprise when i entered my office today! Thank you to my friends @vmvhypoallergenics for this #eye and #brow #multitasker! I can't wait to use them! I love the mini brushes (❤️ the ergonomic design!) and I love the #chic tan pouch! It keeps everything in one place! I can't wait to play with it!
Since then, VMV Hypoallergenics has supported me as my skincare sponsor for a makeup workshop that I created called FACE The Possibilities (click to learn more). In early 2015 my team and I shot once again for VMV’s in-store and online promotional materials that you can currently see today.
Today, I am humbled to be part of a group of skinthusiasts who excel in their chosen fields and inspire other to do so. Currently, there are 5 brand ambassadors for VMV Hypoallergenics. To get to know them click here, to be brought the the brand ambassadors page of VMV Hypoallergenics.

I am skinthusiastiac about continuing my journey with VMV and I am looking forward in continuing to share my joy for the brand and it’s products that I stand for. Hopefully my skinfatuation, as they put it, will boil over and will lead you to skinthusiasmly try and discover VMV Hypoallergenics for your self.
