“Hindi ako high-maintenance na tao,” says Bianca Manalo who only uses two products on her face.
The first is, "Johnson & Johnson bar!”
She added, “Dati Tender Care, now I use Johnson & Johnson."
The second is, “Shu Uemura oil.”
She resumed, "Hindi ako maarte. Sa isang event nga, tinanong nila, 'What's your beauty regimen every day? What do you do before you sleep?'
"Sabi ko e sabon lang."
There were times when she would receive beauty products from various brands.
“Tinitingnan ko lang hanggang ngayon. Paano ba ‘eto gamitin?
“Hindi kasi ako naniniwala sa moisturizer, hindi ako naniniwala sa mga beauty oil na you put that one ganyan-ganyan, di ako maganoon, e."
The former beauty doesn’t also visit beauty clinics often.
"I don't do facials even though mayroon akong free services from Belo."
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) joked, “You have to throw those unwanted service to those who need it since she has really nice skin.”
The former beauty queen’s response, “Siguro, puwera usog. Thank you, Lord!"
Bianca said her good skin is also because of good genes.
"Lahat kami, actually lahat kami magkakapatid, walang maarte kasi even my mom when you ask her, until now kung paano siya nung bata kami, hanggang ngayon.”
Her mom’s beauty must-have though is “Ivory lang. Ivory na original for the face. Bar. Hindi kami liquid soap!"
Bianca related an unfortunate incident with a product for the face long ago.
"I was in high school and I tried one product, basta may isang product, inan-an [white spots] ako!"
At the Berocca party where this interview took place, we chuckled.
Bianca continued, "Oh my god, ginaya ko kasi sa TV. Ayan, arte ka ha, inan-an ako!"
Turning serious, she ended, "Never again. Stick na to your Tender Care, Johnson & Johnson or Ivory.
“Kasi yung mga ganoon, gaya-gaya ko sa TV e, wala, inan-an ako."
