Melissa Ricks’ Strong Skin Story with Physiogel Reminds us to Stay Kind

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

     Inspiring more women through powerful Strong Skin Stories, Physiogel continues its FB Live Series entitled Celebrating Strength in Softness with host Bianca Valerio. The second episode went live last May 1, featuring celebrity and vlogger Melissa Ricks who took us on her journey to finding her very own superpower.

     Melissa believes that being soft but strong is a gift that allows you to be kind not just to others, but to yourself, too. It’s the power to love others while loving yourself enough to step away from things that are not meant for you. This strength from kindness guided her in making braver decisions on her own, especially when she became a single mom.

Physiogel's #FreeInMySkin Movement + My Freedom List Challenge Result

Monday, August 03, 2015

     I hate skin allergies! I can't concentrate on what I'm doing whenever I feel that my skin is itching, dry, and starting to get scaly because of fish allergy. I can say that my skin is sensitive and when one has sensitive skin, dryness comes next. Scratching here, there, and everywhere is annoying and can cause other skin problems in the long run. So in order to prevent dry and sensitive skin, using skin care products that is science-based and dermatologist-recommended should be my number 1 priority. 

     Last July 15, 2015 GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) launched their mission to help people do more, feel better and live longer. In line with this mission, GSK’s Consumer Healthcare division and Physiogel, its flagship skin health brand, aims to help Filipinas and all women across Asia, to be free from dry and sensitive skin. Physiogel believes in freeing the strength in sensitivity. To know more about the new line of Physiogel products + the result of my freedom list challenge, scroll down dearies!

Did you know that...

On good skin days:

  • women are naturally more confident presenting their best face to the world. 
  • when women love how their skin looks and feels, they want to go out and enjoy themselves, meeting people, making connections, and taking on the world. 

On bad skin days:

  • women with their skin feeling 'dry, red and itchy', they are uncomfortable and easily irritated. 
  • when their confidence dips, women feel more vulnerable. 

     “Sensitivity is a source of strength for women, not a weakness to be hidden away. This powerful consumer insight compels Physiogel to passionately advocate the #FreeInMySkin Movement in 2015. The Movement also coincides with the debut of the NEW Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy line,” reveals Justin Alejandro Lladoc, GSK Skin Health Senior Product Manager. 

     Lladoc says Physiogel’s #FreeInMySkin Movement starts with self discovery. Physiogel aims to help women to be more aware of themselves so they can uncover their full potential. It challenges Filipinas to look past their skin insecurities in the hope of helping them fulfill dreams they have always wanted to achieve.

     And this journey to self discovery starts with taking the Freedom List Challenge, Physiogel’s suggested guide in the form of a lifestyle online quiz that is a representation of what women can achieve when freed from dry and sensitive skin. 

The Freedom List Challenge starts with a 5-question quiz: 
1. Which fitness activities give your skin a post-workout glow? 
2. Your potential is limitless, so what’s your dream job? 
3. How do you like to show off your beautiful, strong sensitive skin? 
4. Everybody has a dream “to do” list. What tops yours? 
5. What is your dream holiday? 

     The result of the quiz provides a glimpse to one’s personality that ranges from being a savvy collaborator, inspiring innovator, charismatic motivator and elegant sophisticate - revealing worthwhile hints that may help you embrace and live life to the fullest. 

     The #FreeInMySkin Movement, now made more exciting by new additions with the introduction of the #FreeInMySkin website and Freedom List Challenge, is more relevant than ever because it is able to reach many Filipinas digitally across the nation. And because of its continuous success, from its conception in 2014, it has caught the attention of Mercury Drug. They too were encouraged to free many more Filipinas from dry, sensitive skin by making Physiogel products available across the country. 

     “By the end of 2016, with its continued resonance with consumers, the Movement is expected to have rolled out to the rest of Asian markets,” Lladoc shares. 
     The new Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy line continues to be a differentiated science-led solution featuring the unique Physiogel BioMimic Technology® that works to soothe and repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

Dermatologists highly-recommend Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy because: 

  • it is non-comedogenic
  • is free from soap 
  • preservative, perfumes and colourants. 
  • Physiogel is the #1 Most-Prescribed Brand by Dermatologists in the Philippines! 
  • Physiogel is made more accessible to Filipinas across the nation as it is available in Mercury Drug Stores and other leading pharmacies and supermarkets nationwide. 

     TV host, model/entrepreneur, and blogger, Patti Grandidge is one of those who suffered from dry and sensitive skin. Patti remains to be the brand’s advocate as she embodies the Physiogel woman: smart, elegant, strong and empowered because she is free from dry and sensitive skin. 

     Patti shares that she used to be more conscious and watchful of what others would think about her skin. “That was sad. I would have liked to be out and about and go for more work, but a little thought would always be at the back of my mind wondering if my skin would be an issue or a hindrance. I was not free to do what I wanted to do!” she now says.

     I joined the challenge and answered the questions found on freeinmyskin website. After answering the freedom list, the result is:
You are a mentor, a boss, a sister and a friend — and everyone’s role model. Your inner strength and sensitivity touches others, convincing them to think big and conquer bigger.

     Yay to the result because it is so me! Now, I dare you to take the challenge too and discover your personality. Share it with your relatives, friends, and families. Let's join the movement so that we can bid dry and sensitive skin goodbye! You don't need to hide and feel weak because of dry and sensitive skin, we can be free from this skin problems with the help of Physiogel Moisture Therapy Line!

     Physiogel’s #FreeInMySkin Movement provides women with helpful guides like the Freedom List Challenge so they can share and talk about their skin “journeys” in their lives.

     To fulfill its vision to help people do more and feel better, GSK is strongly encouraging Filipinas to discover their true selves by taking the New Physiogel Freedom List Challenge and join the #FreeInMySkin Movement. Log on to and take the Challenge yourself. 

Product Review: Physiogel Cleanser

Friday, February 20, 2015

     When Kenzo was still a baby, I'm delighted to touch his soft, smooth, and supple skin. He had no other skin-related problems or pediatric skin infections that some mothers always complain. I make that I use gentle, fragrance-free cleansers, soaps and body wash. I'm loyal to a famous brand of baby soap and body wash until last year when the soap and the body wash wasn't able to deliver its promise in their gently cleanses without drying the skin battle cry.

     Anyhoo, I'm not ditching that brand. I think it's because the weather is erratic and colder months made Kenzo's skin extra dry than the usual. After taking a bath, I can see him scratching his legs while complaining that it started to itch. When I touched his legs, it feels tight and looks rough. Dry skin it is! I did not worry because I have the solution on how to combat dry skin. PHYSIOGEL Cleanser to the rescue! I have stocks of this hypoallergenic skin care line. From cleansers to cream and lotions, glad that I have kept a few bottles inside my closet. The products was given as a token from previous events that I've attended. So without further ado, here's my honest to goodness review of PHYSIOGEL Cleanser as per Kenzo's experience :) Click CONTINUE READING and discover how to make skin less sensitive and dry.
