Yesterday I attended Cosmo Skin’s The Beauty Event, a celebration of a successful 7 years in the industry. For those of you who don’t know, Cosmo Skin is a local brand that’s part of Bargn Farmaceutici Philippines Co. (BFPC), the flagship company of the Bargn Group. They offer a wide range of products that aims to beautify from within and supplement this through the use of their other skincare products. The brand is actually fairly new to me as well – I’ve seen it around (in Watson Department Stores to be exact) but haven’t really tried them. So I guess this is my chance to give them a shot and let you know how it goes for me. But before that, let’s talk about the event first.


On the original invite I received thru email, it was indicated that the event would start at 3 in the Mall of Asia Atrium. But after confirming my attendance, Ms. Cassie said in her reply that the event was moved to 1pm. I’ve had my fair share of blog events but this is probably the first time I attended an event that wasn’t exclusive to bloggers and/or media people. Well, the Cosmo Skin event was an open event in the middle of the mall. Meaning, everyone can join in. I came a little past 1 to a seemingly empty venue. I’m sure you’re thinking that events don’t usually start on time but this one started at around 4pm! They had us wait for 3 hours before the event started. I’m really sorry for complaining about this here but this was the first time I encountered something like this. My boyfriend accompanied me and we both had to reschedule all our other appointments for the afternoon because of the delay in the event’s program. It was very disappointing, to say the least. 🙁

Since it was an open event, they had several Cosmo Skin counters around the event venue to promote their new products. They had Buy 1, Take 1 Sale and fat analysis counters which were heavily crowded. The venue itself was divided into 2 parts: the table around the stage was for media people and then the red chairs (and everywhere else) were for fans. The event was jam-packed with celebrity endorsers – no wonder a lot of people were waiting. Plus, there were a lot of prizes given out during the event itself which made everyone excited.
Considering that Bargn Farmaceutici Philippines Co. (BFPC) was founded only in 2006, the company has since reaped numerous awards since its establishment by founders. Among the industry awards that it has reaped include Watson’s Health Wellness and Beauty (HWB) Award for 2010 as “Brand of the Year”, it also received the Skincare Brand of the Year Award and just recently the Gold Brand Award for 2013.

As if the witty Sam YG wasn’t enough to conquer the stage.. 2 more hotties came out along with the models to woo the impatient crowd – who, by the looks of it, were waiting for Jodi Sta. Maria a.k.a Maya of Be Careful With My Heart. Anyway, I couldn’t tell who is who but let me tell you this much, they’re both insanely gorgeous. 😉
Cosmo Cee. Cosmo Cee, sports celebrities (and twins) Anthony and David Semerad, is BFPC’s premier Vitamin C supplement that is tummy-friendly as it comes in the form of Sodium Ascorbate and is thus, not acidic.

It has citrus bioflavanoids which is also an excellent source of Vitamin C. More than just a source of Vitamin C though, Cosmo Cee also has anti-aging effects that enhance the skin’s natural collagen, resulting in a healthy glow and youthful appearance.

Cosmo Skin Reduced L-Glutathione.  As endorsed by  BFPC’s first celebrity endorser, Melissa Ricks, Cosmo Skin is the country’s premier glutathione supplement. Its unique formulation inhibits tyrosinase activity that is a main component of melanin. Melanin is the main culprit for skin darkening. Cosmo Skin also has an Advanced Skin Whitening Formula that contains a more potent form of Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C. The latter, which comes in microcrystalline form, helps the body absorb Cosmo Skin’s active ingredients.

Cosmo Skin also has amino acids that help enhance the body’s collagen levels; thus, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and signs of skin aging.
Cosmo Skin Related Products. Two new brands of soap—Cosmo Skin with Kojic Acid and Cosmo Skin with Collagen and Papaya Extract; as well as Cosmo Skin Collagen Hand and Body Cream, are now available.

Cosmo Body. Cosmo Body is the country’s premier health and weight loss supplement. It is a blend of two powerful fat burning teas—Green Tea (EGCG) and L-Carnitine. It is good for overall health but is deemed very effective in increasing metabolism and energy, that eventually leads to weight loss.
Cosmo Body works by increasing the body’s energy expenditure and the amount of energy spent during physical activity. The polyphenols in Cosmo Body suppresses and enzyme that breaks down a substance responsible for thermogenesis—a natural process in which body fat is converted to energy. Hence, users of Cosmo Body have more energy, while shedding unwanted weight. With the use of Cosmo Body, a person can, with the right diet and exercise, lose as much as 10 lbs. in just 10 days!
Euphoria Maxx. Euphoria Maxx, endorsed by celebrity couple Aubrey Miles and Troy Montero, is one of the country’s premier libido enhancer for men. It is a health supplement that helps increase stamina and appetite for sexual experience by lifting libido, energy and circulation levels; while at the same time decreasing stress. It is packed with a host of natural ingredients including L-Arginine, Tribulus Terestris (an herb used in traditional Chinese medicine), Horny Goat Weed (a nitric oxide increaser) and the popular Tongkat Ali.

A quick selfie more than 2 hours before the event started.. look at how good my mood was then. LOL!

Those are pretty interesting products, if you ask me. I got to take home some of their best sellers so I’ll try them out and share with you what I think. Don’t expect me to review the Euphoria Maxx pack though. LOL! More about my new hair on another post. 😉
