Celebrate Whiter and Firmer Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It is a special occasion every couple is excited to celebrate. But to single ladies, V-day can be very tough. So they either sulk at home to celebrate singlehood, or pamper themselves with the right skincare products and eventually snag a date.

Gluta White and Firm


Gluta White and Firm is an advanced skin-whitening and skin-firming properties that will make every man swoon over your white and firm skin.

One of Gluta White and Firm’s active ingredients is glutathione. It is called by doctors as the “mother of all antioxidants.” Glutathione works by protecting the cells from harmful toxins. Surprisingly, its side effect is to lighten the color of the skin. It acts together with Clair Blanche, a fusion of 7 active ingredients that prevents melanin formation. This revolutionary whitening and firming product is clinically tested and proven effective by dermatologists.

Because whitening can never be enough, Gluta White and Firm has L-carnitine and Lipofirm to achieve lasting firmness. Both properties are effectively blended by dermatologists to break down fatty tissues, to tone body contours, and to lift sagged portions of the skin. Gluta White and Firm’s complete skincare products range from: Facial Wash, Soap, Facial Cream and Lotion.

Now, you can get a whiter, firmer skin this Valentine’s – even the man of your dreams.

“Comet” to Hit Philippines this February

“A beautifully rendered experience that excels on nearly every level” -Awards Circuit
Following the success of the Adam Levine-Kiera Knightley starrer Begin Again, Solar Pictures brings to local cinemas “COMET”-- a cosmic love story that is sure to leave audiences with that warm February feeling.
“Comet,” stars Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum (“The Day After Tomorrow,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Mystic River”) and Justin Long (“Live Free or Die Hard,” “He’s Just Not That Into You”).
“Comet” is an original modern love story that follows Kimberly (Rossum) and Dell (Long), who first meet at the Hollywood cemetery where they’ve both come to watch a meteor shower.
Kimberly is brilliant and beautiful; Dell is nerdy and pessimistic, but with an incredibly sharp mind and direct manner. While she and he are not a natural pair, they are cosmically drawn to each other and, under a night sky, luminous with falling stars, they begin their epic love story.
As the opening title card states the events “take place over six years (a few parallel universes over).”
But what starts as a typical romance quickly turns dreamlike as viewers leap back and forth in time, examining their eventual six-year relationship through the lens of their meeting and four other pivotal moments: a monumental fight at a friend’s wedding in Paris; a break up conversation after Dell has moved to New York; a reconnection on a train ride along the California coast; and finally, when Dell pops in on Kimberly unexpectedly in her home in the Hollywood Hills.


The leaps between these moments are seamlessly woven together to create a sense that this love story transcends time and space and that Kimberly and Dell are destined to be together, if not in this universe, then maybe the next.
Content Media introduced and screened the film to international distributors for the first time at the 2014 American Film Market (AFM) last November and was then picked up by Solar Pictures, among other films.
“The universal theme and inventive storytelling in ‘Comet’ have us believing that audiences will really connect with the film,” said Content Media President of Film Jamie Carmichael. “We were drawn in immediately and are happy to have this film…”
COMET opens in cinemas nationwide on February 25, 2014 and is released by Solar Pictures.

#DinnerForCarlisle on Sept. 27

Carlisle Von Patrick was born as a healthy bouncing baby boy on the morning of March 31st, 2012. Marie Ruth Corpuz Berma, being a single mom who carried him for the whole nine months by herself, was so overwhelmed that he came out as healthy as she prayed for. Crying out loud, rosy cheeks, birthmark. Everything seems to be perfect. She make sure that he'll not be hurt, no insect will bite him. He was present on monthly check-ups, up-to-date with his vaccines.

On his fourth month, Marie Ruth world froze when they rushed him to ER due to viral meningitis. She thought that would be the end of her unexplainable happiness in life, but thank God that her boy survived.

Series of follow-ups and tests were done and since then, they were in and out of the hospital due to his inconsistent nausea, vomiting, and fever. Doctors thought that his meningitis came back, until one decided to do cranial ultrasound on him, and everything weakens Marie Ruth after that.

Carlisle Von Patrick has been diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma (brain tumor) last February 2013 after his MRI procedure and went on brain surgery to remove the tumor last June 2013 at University of Santo Tomas Hospital. His life was saved, but his eyesight wasn't. He's undergoing constant follow up checks to maintain healthy living. Last update that they had is he needs to go for another surgery because the tumor is getting bigger again.


On September 27, 2014, Buffet 101 Eastwood branch will be hosting a dinner-for-a-cause event for Carlisle. The #DinnerForCarlisle buffet is priced at Php 1,100 for adults and Php 600 for kids 3.5 ft and above. Children below the height limit is considered free of charge. Part of the sales will be for Carlisle's hospital funds. Dinner starts at 5:30 PM.
