Happy Skin’s summer 2015 collection dropped last week and it is every bit as bloomiful — oops, I meant beautiful — as I hoped it would be. The collection, called “Beauty In Bloom“, is the brand’s second summer release and I remember clearly that it was last year’s summer collection, “Turn Up The Heat“, that first enticed me into purchasing Happy Skin products. Since then I have consistently been amazed at how thorough the relatively-young and proudly-Filipino brand is when it comes to product development and conceptualisation of themes for limited edition and permanent products alike.
To say that I am a fan of Happy Skin would be 100% accurate. Those who know me know that although I don’t “fangirl” over the usual things like pop stars and handsome actors, I can “fangirl” pretty hard when I decide that I admire someone or something. Admiration is precisely what I have for Happy Skin as a brand and for its co-founders, Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez and Rissa Mananquil-Trillo. So it was with sheer and utter joy that I accepted a friend’s invitation to attend this year’s Happy Skin summer party (thank you times a billion, Iya! ♥).
Now I get to share the experience with you, my readers, as well as information about the collection that I hope will be helpful to you. Do read (or at least scroll) until the very end so that you can see all of the product shots and swatches!
