Teen Actress Arabella Del Rosario Is the New Face of Orabella

Orabella Philippines, the beauty brand known for its affordable and quality skincare line, recently welcomed teen actress Arabella del Rosario as its new brand ambassador.

“As an up and coming brand, we wanted an endorser who is passionate and promising. We see that in Arabella, and we warmly welcome her into the Orabella family,’ said Anne Acuña, Marketing Manager of Orabella Direct Selling Inc.

The young actress, who is also into singing and figure skating, is a member of Star Magic. Arabella has appeared in the ABS-CBN series, Wild Little Love.

She was introduced as Orabella’s latest endorser during a virtual press conference attended by members of the media and the blogging community.

While she appeared in some commercials in the past, according to Del Rosario, this is the first time she will be launched as brand ambassador of a reputable skin care brand such as Orabella.

“Being a new face in show business has its advantage, too. There are trustworthy brands like Orabella that believe beautiful skin is achievable with a consistent skin care routine. Ever since a kid, I know that taking care of my skin should be a priority. It is not vanity but it’s self care, because our skin is the largest organ of the body,” said Del Rosario, who is also a college freshman taking up Veterinary Medicine in De La Salle Araneta University.

During the same event, Orabella also unveiled its Defense Factor System that includes a soap, toning gel, spot solution, specialist cream, and sun care lotion.

“Our Defense Factor System is a complete solution that is formulated to bring out the beauty in you. Our company has been in the manufacturing of skin care products for a long time, however, Orabella is our homegrown brand,” Acuña said, adding that the brand celebrates women, who make up most of their distribution network.

All the products are made with quality and natural ingredients, and are intended to be “defense factors” against skin problems like blemishes (acne,blackheads, and whiteheads); sun damage (melasma, sun spots, and uneven color); and visible signs of aging (wrinkles, dryness, and roughness).

To learn more about the Orabella Defense Factor System and its other offerings, follow Orabella Direct Selling Inc. on its official Facebook account.

Orabella skin care products are sold through independent distributors and will soon be available on Lazada and Shopee.

Moira Dela Torre, PLDT Home collaborate for Valentine’s music video

The most streamed Filipina artist on Spotify Moira Dela
collaborates with PLDT Home for the music video of her latest single “Pag-ibig ang Piliin,” composed and arranged by award-winning songwriter Jonathan Manalo. As the voice for PLDT Home’s campaign this Valentine’s Day, Moira once again captivates the hearts with a song that speaks the true meaning of love.

In its Valentine’s Campaign, PLDT Home highlights the importance of choosing to love amidst all circumstances and challenges. While the internet and social media have become important platforms for free expression and open dialogue, the #ChooseToLove campaign reminds everyone to always choose love over hate, divisiveness, fear and rejection.

This new song is a bright ray of light that is much needed today. It tells us that love is the most powerful choice through its moving lines.

“Kahit na ‘di natin alam ang bukas
Kahit ‘di sumikat ang araw at bumuhos ang ulan
Kahit hindi umayon ang tadhana
Isang tawag mo lang, pupuntahan nasaan ka man.
Ganyan ang tunay na pag-ibig ‘di takot sa mundo
Ipaglalaban kita hanggang sa dulo
Pag-ibig ang pipiliin ko.”

Moira notes that she was “honored to be chosen by PLDT Home” to sing this new song. She continues that the message of the song is what she has been trying to embody in the many years that she has been an artist.

Songwriter and music arranger Jonathan Manalo shares that the main message of the song highlights the ultimate power of love that changes and conquers all. He says, “This a love song that puts emphasis on ‘Love’ that is worth fighting for. Love against all odds, even if the world seems to disapprove, no one can question the power of a person’s great true love. When you choose to fight for love, it is the ultimate power, nothing, no one can stand in your way.” The song was also co-written by singer-songwriter Trisha Denise

Get ready to be inspired to choose love this Valentine’s season. Watch Moira’s latest music video directed by Benedict Mariategue and produced by Playback Productions for PLDT Home. Click this link.
