The Happiest Haul Of Them All

September 15, 2017
...goes to Happy Skin ♥ Sanrio Characters!

It's already been two days since its launch and I'm still over the moon seeing this collection first hand with my girl friends. Call it silly but as 80s and 90s kids, we all lived through collection after collection of Sanrio characters.


Seeing my IG posts, is it too obvious that I'm so hooked on Hello Kitty? You can even quiz me on her family, friends, and bio and I can answer them. ;-)

Did you know that Hello Kitty has a twin sister named Hello Mimmy?
Sophie is my Hello Mimmy sans the yellow bow.


The Happy Skin team put together three stations to match My Melody, Hello Kitty, and the Little Twin Stars' personality. I thought My Melody was the cutest showcasing their newest product, Happy Skin ♥ Sanrio Characters Make A Clean Sweep Micellar Makeup Wipes (Php 249) and more.
Happy Skin co-founder Rissa Mananquil Trillo explains why: “Sanrio brings back childhood memories to adult women. The brand has been present for almost 40 years in the Philippines, so many Filipinas grew up having Hello Kitty, My Melody, and Little Twin Stars as part of their everyday lives.” Rissa continues, “There are a hundred ways to have Sanrio characters in your life—through stationery, stuffed toys, little accessories and even clothes and bags—and finally now through Happy Skin, Sanrio’s first local cosmetics partner in the Philippines.”

“Sanrio is very popular in Japan and all over the world, including the Philippines. With the Happy Skin ♥ Sanrio Characters collaboration, we wanted to do something special just for Filipino fans, especially for the women who have always loved and continue to love the characters of Sanrio,” shares Caroline Tsang, Sanrio Chief Operating Officer, Asia. “Partnering with a well-loved local cosmetics brand like Happy Skin is very exciting for us, because it allows Sanrio to be part of the lives of Filipinas in a unique way.”

“This collection marks Sanrio’s first collaboration with a local cosmetics brand in the country, giving Happy Skin the honor of being Sanrio’s first local cosmetics partner,” says co-founder Jacqe Yuengtian Gutierrez. “And just like how Happy Skin spreads happiness through makeup that cares for the skin, Sanrio is also very much founded on the idea of giving gifts that bring the biggest smiles—perfect for the holidays!”
SO. MUCH. CUTENESS. I can feel my cheeks actually flushing because I'm super kilig to share these photos with you!

If you love both Hello Kitty and the Skin Perfecting Super Absorbent Charcoal Blotting Sheets (Php 175), you will love the new packaging from this collection. It's the same awesome product packed in a super cute pink paper casing. Featured in the photo above is also my favourite product from this collection -- the new Happy Skin ♥ Sanrio Characters Make A Clean Sweep Micellar Makeup Wipes (Php 249). If you love MAC's wipes, you will love this even more. Each pack has 25 super smooth and durable wipes that can take every single trace of makeup. No need for a second sheet to wipe off heavy makeup including super matte liquid lipsticks and waterproof mascaras -- tried, tested, and proven by yours truly.


Apart from the super cute Happy Skin ♥ Sanrio Characters Air Touch Sponge in Hello Kitty (punchy red) and My Melody (fun pink), how cute are these Happy Skin ♥ Sanrio Characters Air Touch Sponge Duo in Little Twin Stars (Php 499)? Each pack has two mini makeup blending sponges that can be used for the cheeks and under eye area. They come in two super pretty colours: purple and blue to remind you of Lala and Kiki.

Here are some of the items I brought home with me from the launch. I think you can tell that I had a ball putting all of my Line x Sanrio app stickers to good use. :)
