Passing on the Torch

A few months ago, I was privileged enough to be invited by Neutrogena Philippines to be one of their brand ambassadors for their Fine Fairness line. For a day, I found myself sitting with girls who I admire not only for their beauty but for the things that they’ve achieved in their respective fields as well.

I was in the midst of Patty Laurel, Isabel Roces, Georgia Schulze-del Rosario, Solenn Heusaff, and fellow bloggers Phoebe Ramos, Earth Rullan, and Jane Kingsu-Cheng. It was like a dream come true. I was beyond flattered.

I recently wrote about what happened that day, it was filled with preparations in order for us to have a bright start to our 2011.

A few days after, things took the wrong turn. With a heavy heart, I had to formally withdraw as Neutrogena Philippines’ brand ambassador due to certain rules that I have to obey. This involves the other part of my life – my professional career. I shall not dwell on the nitty-gritty of the rule but sadly, I had to bid my new found friends from Neutrogena Philippines goodbye.

On a happier note, it is my privilege to introduce to you the newest face of Neutrogena’s Fine Fairness line. She’s a fellow blogger who, despite her young age, has achieved a lot in blogging, product endorsements, and even TV show hosting. I wasn’t surprised that Neutrogena Philippines chose her to be the 8th brand ambassador as she truly deserves it. Let us all say hello to Hannah Villasis of

Hooray for Hannah! :) Read about her discoveries and adventures at the Neutrogena Philippines Facebook Page.

To Neutrogena Philippines, thank you for giving me that wonderful opportunity and I look forward to seeing you all again someday. :)

  1. heard about it. I have the same challenge as well. There are a lot of things I cannot blog about.

    Though you have passed the torch to another adorable blogger, I believe you are still a Neutrogena ambassador. Congratulations to you and Hannah! :)

  2. thanks roch!!! :) super sweet of you to say that :)

  3. Hey Fran :) I agree with Roch, I believe you still are an ambassador for Neutrogena :) At first I didn't know I was to replace anyone else and like you, I felt so privileged to be a part of this as I grew up with the brand for a long time as this has been one of my mom's favorite skin care brands. Thanks for the mention dear :)

  4. At least Fran, you became a part of them diba and you will always be. Hugs!!! :)

  5. thanks hannah! enjoy!! :)

    dyanie: thanks! *hugs*
