Murad Retinol Youth: Youthful, glowing skin at any age

Murad Retinol Youth: Youthful, glowing skin at any age

“Am I too young to start using these products?” This is the question that many women, including us, ask when it comes to anti-aging products. Raised with a notion that these products are solely for women who are in their 40s or 50s, products that help reverse signs of aging are often met with wonder or confusion.

But one is never too young to start taking care of their skin. Starting an anti-aging regimen at a young age is an important preventive method to slow down the process of aging as one gets older.

Just recently, Murad launches its freshest duo: the Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum and Eye Cream. The duo is a nighttime complement to the Retinol Youth Renewal Serum that adds an extra layer of protection and prevention to your skin, no matter what your age is.

Like its daytime counterpart, the newest Murad Retinol duo is formulated with Retinol Tri-Active Technology, which improves the skin in three ways: hastened cellular turnover, lipid-encased retinol that gradually melts into the skin, and magnet-like effects to promote efficacy and absorption. The two also have Swertia Flower Extract that soothes skin and keeps irritation at bay.

Both packing a one-two punch of anti-aging properties, both formulations exhibit the power of retinol, reinvented: powerful yet gentle, effective without being overwhelming. Reminding us that it’s never too early to start our anti-aging routines, Murad keeps youth within reach at any and every age.

The Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum (15mL) retails for P4,850, while the Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream (50mL) is priced at P4,550. Both additions to the Murad Resurgence collection is available in all Rustan’s Department Stores.

Rustan’s For The Arts: Paulina Luz Sotto and Al Perez

Rustan’s For The Arts: Paulina Luz Sotto and Al Perez

To continue the legacy of Rustan’s for the Arts, Rustan’s will stage several activities and offerings dedicated to Filipino artistry for its 65th year starting March 7 onwards at the 4th Floor of Rustan’s Makati.  Discover the works of art of renowned artists Al Perez and Paulina Luz Sotto.

Al Perez, known for his inimitable style of painting “Church Portraits”, commitment, and dedication to glorify God in his every work has mastered the art of breathing life back to history through his canvas.  However, his mastery of the art is not limited to the House of God as he had traveled all over the country to capture Philippine rural scenes, houses, nipa huts, nudes, portraits, and flowers as elements of his artistry.

Surrounded by art and artists for most of her life, Paulina Luz Sotto discovered her artistic awakening at the age of 25.  With the fascination of the straight line, a one-dimensional figure sparked her passion for abstract art.  Making a name for herself in the local art scene, Paulina shows no sign of slowing down while stepping away from the shadows of her National Artist for Visual Arts grandfather and showbiz icon father.

Discover the works of art of Al Perez and Paulina Luz-Sotto at Rustan’s for the Arts, located at

the 4th floor of Rustan’s Makati and at the 3 rd floor of Rustan’s Shangri-La starting this 7th of

March 2018. Pieces on display will be for sale for interested customers.
