Celebrities Play Fairy Godparents For Flawless’ 12th Anniversary






On its 12th Anniversary celebration Flawless gathers together Kapuso, Kapamilya as well as Kapatid stars to spread loads of gifts and cheers this month. They are Kapuso stars Maxene Magalona, Mark Herras and Enzo Pineda; Kapamilya dancing icon Jhong Hilario and Kapatid rising stars Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Divine Lee.

The stars are all for the aesthetic clinic’s concept of empowered beauty.

“I speak for everyone when I say that one of the main reasons we love Flawless is because of its medical approach to beauty,” shares Jasmine Curtis-Smith. “Unlike with other skincare centers that I’ve been to kasi, Flawless has medical doctors in all its clinics and I love the fact that they can all explain how the treatments and products work to improve your skin.”

“And this is something that we – Flawless, Jasmine, myself and other celebrities who endorse the brand – want to share with everyone, the gift of medical-based beauty solutions,” adds Maxene Magalona.

The month-long celebration dubbed “National Flawless Month” highlights four promos that run alongside each other.

“For their 12th anniversary, Flawless wants to play the role of fairy godmother to all beauty treatment fans out there,” says Maxene. “We know that everyone wants to have a fairytale like Cinderella’s, and Flawless is giving this to them with offerings that will allow them to stay flawless for the rest of 2014. That’s the best thing about this year’s celebration. Unlike Cinderella whose fairytale ends at 12, Flawless’ clients’ will begin at 12 midnight of the 12th month of the year, and will last for the entire 12 months of next year.”
