Love is in the air as couples celebrate Valentine's Day today, February 14.
Although this is not officially a non-working holiday in the Philippines, many still make time to celebrate it with their significant others.
Some lovers have made it a tradition to exchange gifts—from flowers, cards, and chocolates.
But if your partner is the practical type, give him/her something useful.

For all your #kilaygoals ✔️ #Repost @revlon ・・・ “I love everything about this eyebrow pencil. The angled pencil is AMAZING - the texture of the product is smooth, not brittle or ’clumpy’ like some other brands - it fills in my brows fully and and the color is super long lasting. I will definitely be buying this product!” Thanks for the love on @jet, Jweb8689

With summer just around the corner, I’m including the new OLAY Whips in my skincare routine so I can look and feel fresh all day! This has got me walking in sunshine so I’m glad it’s finally here in the Philippines, guys! 😍 If you’re like me who doesn’t like the feeling of heavy creams on my face especially when under the sun, this moisturizer is light as air, really keeps shine at bay, and can work as a primer to keep makeup in place. ❤️ Available in all @WatsonsPH stores nationwide, and also online.
