TikToker Superstar Queenay Mercado picks as the Celebrity Endorser of Jullien Skin Rejuvenating Set

BEAUTY brand Jullien Skin has formally launched its much-awaited rejuvenating set that assures Filipino consumers of healthy and radiant skin without breaking the bank.

The Jullien Skin Rejuvenating Set, which contains a Kojic cleaning soap, a rejuvenating toner, a hydrating sunscreen, and a rejuvenating night cream, promises users clear, protected, and hydrated skin in just 30 days of regular use. It is exclusively sold at Puregold for only P299. 

Jamira Magcale, president of JDM Corporation, distributor of the new skincare brand, shares her excitement about bringing Jullien Skin to the Philippine market. “Everyone wants to feel beautiful in their own skin,” says Magcale. 

“We created Jullien Skin para mailabas ang ganda ng bawat Filipino. It is all about offering quality and effective skincare at an affordable price that Filipinos everywhere can enjoy.”

During its media launch, Jullien Skin presented its celebrity endorser, the 21-year-old Tiktoker superstar and actress Queenay Mercado. Queenay, who commands over 13 million followers on the platform, represents the Jullien Skin market that aspires to have beautiful and healthy skin.

Queenay’s enthusiasm for Jullien Skin’s rejuvenating set can barely be contained. “Ang laki po ng impact ng skincare sa aking beauty routine,” says Queenay. “That’s why I’m so grateful for being chosen as an endorser for Jullien Skin. Having skin that feels and looks good on the outside helps me exude self-confidence! That’s the feeling I want to share with everyone who picks up a Jullien Skin Rejuvenating Set.”


As the latest name in the Philippine beauty industry, Jullien Skin hopes to leave a strong first impression through its initial product offering—the rejuvenating set.

Magcale speaks about what distinguishes the brand from its competition. “Unlike other skincare products, the ingredients used in Jullien Skin are gentle on the skin,” she says. “We also offer Jullien Skin at an affordable price because we want it to benefit as many people as possible without sacrificing the quality and efficacy that customers have come to expect.”

All four products in Jullien Skin’s rejuvenating set eschew ingredients that may be harsh on skin, ensuring a soothing and nurturing touch for all its customers.

The first is the Kojic cleansing soap which contains Kojic acid dipalmitate, coconut, aloe vera leaf extract, tomato fruit extract, orange peel extract, and more that moisturizes and brightens skin.

To use, simply wet the soap with water to form a lather, then apply to skin for at least 30 seconds. Then rinse thoroughly and pat dry. The next step is to use the rejuvenating toner. This contains de-ionized water, propylene glycol, glycerin, L-ascorbic acid, sodium hyaluronate, niacinamide—elements that act as primer so the skin may better absorb the next steps in the process. 

After rinsing off the Kojic soap, one may pour a small amount of the rejuvenating toner onto a cotton pad and apply this gently on the face and neck in an upward motion.

When using the rejuvenating set in the daytime, the toner should be followed by the hydrating sunscreen. With ingredients like de-ionized water, cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, carrot fruit extract and more, this sunscreen keeps the skin protected from the brutal Philippine sun. It also contains antioxidants that help combat early signs of skin aging, and helps bring out a healthy glow.

After applying the rejuvenating toner, the hydrating sunscreen can be applied liberally to the face and neck 30 minutes before sun exposure. Be sure to re-apply every 2-3 hours!

Meanwhile, when ending the day with Jullien Skin, be sure to use the rejuvenating night cream as a final step. Containing de-ionized water, glycerin, propylene glycol, sweet almond oil, and much more, this cream repairs skin blemishes like dark spots and pimples.

After using the rejuvenating toner, simply apply a small amount of the rejuvenating night cream all over the face and gently massage in an upward motion. Be sure to apply this at least 10 minutes before you go to bed!

Jullien Skin is set to be sold exclusively at Puregold, one of the country’s major retail shopping brands. With hundreds of Puregold branches nationwide, Filipinos who aspire for more vibrant skin will have easy access to the rejuvenating set.

To top it all, the affordability of Jullien Skin’s rejuvenating set ensures that Jullien Skin’s message of self-care and skin health will reach as wide an audience as possible.
