What is the one thing you cannot live without as a teenage girl (or a grown-up girl, for that matter)? Our cellphones, hairbrushes, and high heels are top contenders for our girly absolute must-haves. However, at the end of the day, it all boils down to whom we spend time with. No matter how old you are, you will always—ALWAYS—go back to your best friend. She is the one person you can call at 4AM just to make kwento to. She is the one person who will tell you the painful truth for your own good. She is the one person you will always have a blast with, even if you are just at chilling at home. And sometimes, when circumstances permit, she is also the one person you will want by your side as you two vie to become the next faces of a global beauty brand. That’s right. You and your best friend—the next models of a world-renowned brand.
That opportunity is exactly what Clean & Clear® has given long-time best friends, Mariel Bitanga and Isa Palabyab, as Clean & Clear® is on the search for the next best friends models of Clean & Clear® Asia. After winning the local round of the competition, Mariel & Isa flew to Singapore in June to compete against six other pairs of BFFs from all over the region. They were given challenges, crazy tasks, and wild shopping adventures to showcase how awesome their best friendship is. Though their physical tasks are over, the contest has only just begun! YOU can decide who the next faces of Clean & Clear® will be! From now until September 20, help make Filipinas the next faces of this global beauty brand. Vote everyday on www.cleanandclear.com.ph to help make Mariel & Isa Clean & Clear®’s newest top best friends models!
A best friend will cheer you on, pick you up when you are down, and push you to go out there and show the world your talents. Similarly, Clean & Clear® is here to make sure every teenage girl experiences life’s possibilities by fearlessly going out there and doing something amazing. That is exactly what Mariel & Isa are doing now! Let’s all help them become the next faces of Clean & Clear® so that they can show the world how gorgeous Filipina best friends are.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
