When life’s got you running from one errand to the next, we just can’t be bothered with the extra steps in our beauty routines. We all know that step-by-step skincare can work wonders, but sticking to them religiously isn’t always a reality. That said, there’s the latest innovation in beauty: skincare smoothies.

Taking inspiration from blended beverages, smoothies are a mixture of various fruits and vitamins, serving as another way to enhance skin health. Are your blenders ready? QUICKFX and NYLON Manila came together for a fruity fix! Here’s what went down at the launch of the QUICKFX Glo Smoothies skincare line.

Beauty and Baking

Thanks to social media, skincare smoothies have become a worldwide trend, and now QUICKFX has brought them to F-Beauty shelves. To celebrate this innovative introduction in the local scene, QUICKFX hosted a baking party in collaboration with NYLON Manila. Held at the cozy counters of Bakebe at SM Aura, this unique skin-loving launch brought together beauty content creators for an unforgettable Saturday, seamlessly blending beauty education with culinary creativity.

Moreover, special thanks to Likha Canvas for the tote bags – these content creators now have the cutest place to store their Glo Smoothies and cupcakes!

What’s Cooking?

The launch of the QUICKFX Glo Smoothies skincare line kicked off with a warm welcome from QUICKFX Category Lead Mari Barretto-Syquia and NYLON Manila Editor-in-Chief Ayn Bernos. As the sun streamed through the windows of the co-baking space, beauty content creators were treated to a delightful blend of skincare smoothies and the aroma of freshly baked cupcakes. Needless to say, the event was a sensory delight.

QUICKFX, known for its commitment to accessible and effective skincare, took the stage to discuss the delightful story behind their latest product line. According to the QUICKFX Team, ‘Formulating a new skincare product is truly a work of art, just like baking!’ The beauty brand’s dedication to providing carefully formulated products with skin-loving ingredients such as watermelon extract, peach extract, tranexamic acid and niacinamide was a masterpiece in itself. Just like baking, finding the perfect blend of ingredients was key in developing these fruity, brightening formulations. 

Since we’re all about the QUICKFX Glo Smoothies, we tried and tested the skincare line. Here’s what we think.

It’s A Must-Have

Just like your daily dose of blended beverage for an energy boost, the QUICKFX Glo Smoothies line has watermelon and peach extracts for hydration and that glass-like glow. It’s plumping, perfect for prepping the skin, and also hydrating for beauty rest. To top it all off, they smell extremely refreshing like watermelons and peaches! Yes, we’re definitely getting that watermelon sugar high. 

Check out the entire recipe for glowing skin with the Glo Smoothies regimen below:
