ICYMI: Hello Glow Just Launched a New SPF Superstar


Denice Sy, Jarische Lao-Ang, and Jan Angelo took the stage at the Hello Glow launch, dishing out suncare tips, debunking myths, and highlighting the Sun Care Stick’s standout features

The less baggage, the better—this holds especially true when you’re packing for a trip or selecting the essential items to carry in your everyday bag. A makeup primer, moisturizer, and sunscreen in one, Hello Glow’s newly launched Sun Care Stick SPF 60+ PA++ is the ultimate multitasker to move and glow through summer. Its portable and solid stick format guarantees a mess-free experience, whether it’s tucked away in your bag or used on the go.

On May 30, beauty queens Iona Gibbs, Charyzah Esparrago, Gwendolyne Fourniol, and Justine Felizarta joined beauty influencers in celebrating the launch of the Hello Glow Sun Care Stick at The Island, BGC. The event featured a suncare discussion led by founder Denice Sy, certified dermatologist Jarische Lao-Ang, and skincare influencer Jan Angelo.

Stick to the fun

Denice Sy, Jarische Lao-Ang, and Jan Angelo answered burning questions about Hello Glow’s Sun Care Stick

According to Sy, the best sunscreen is one that you genuinely enjoy using on a daily basis. “We named the event ‘Stick to the Fun’ because we believe [that applying] sunscreen should be fun. Something you can be consistent about,” the founder said.

Since launching in 2020, Hello Glow has been a staunch advocate for the importance of daily sunscreen wear. In fact, it is this commitment that served as the driving force behind the brand’s latest release—a lightweight and non-greasy formula for effortless application and reapplication throughout the day.

Sleek new format

The Sun Care Stick SPF 60+ PA++ is perfect for on-the-go SPF application

Sunscreen sticks are incredibly convenient for easy application, but the question of hygiene often comes to mind. “People are usually worried about how swiping on your sun stick throughout the day can be unhygienic,” Angelo said. “But there’s no room for bacteria to grow because [the sunscreen stick] is not water-based.” 

Guests indulged in free-flowing pink drinks

To reapply, a simple twist and glide of the Sun Care Stick will provide the desired coverage. However, reapplying sunscreen over makeup with a stick can be challenging. Ang-Lao gave a live demonstration on stage, “Since makeup is typically oil-based, there can be a slight transfer. But your makeup will remain intact.”

After reapplication, Ang-Lao recommends a finishing touch with setting powder to ensure radiant yet shine-free skin.

Sun care lineup

With top-tier protection from UV rays, these Hello Glow options do not fall short in the sunscreen category

Before introducing the Sun Care Stick SPF 60+ PA++, Hello Glow had already built an impressive lineup of suncare products. This includes the 3-in-1 Lightweight Sun Care Gel, Anti-Pollution Tinted Sunscreen, Ultralight++ Matte Sunscreen, and Sun Care Lip Balm infused with SPF 20. The 3-in-1 Lightweight Sun Care Gel has a liquid formula, while the Ultralight++ Matte Sunscreen offers a serum-gel consistency. For those seeking to even out their skin tone, the Anti-Pollution Tinted Sunscreen with its tone-adapt formula is the perfect choice.
