If you’ve been eyeing some local brands, then get your thumbs ready to hit the add-to-cart button for Lazada’s 8.8 Love Local Sale starting today!
Lazada and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) have partnered up to strengthen and grow micro, small, and medium enterprises in the country through the 8.8. Love Local Sale happening until August 12. They've also relaunched Go Lokal! on LazMall, which features local brands in a wide array of categories. Even better: expect free shipping deals and discounts!
To give you a headstart, we let you in on some local brands on our radar during the sale.
Local skincare brands have been stepping up their game the past few years. With the Filipina skin in mind and chic, classy packaging to match, LANA PH is one to watch. Check out their products for different skin concerns, like their Activated Charcoal Soap for helping treat acne-prone skin, DNA Repair Elixir for evening out the complexion, and their Deep Hydrating Rice Toner for brightening and softening the face.
The Bamboo Company has lifestyle, personal care, dining and drinking, and packaging solution products, as the name suggests, all in bamboo! Check out their unique products like bamboo watches, bamboo phone holders, bamboo french presses, bamboo tumblers, and even detoxifying bamboo charcoal soaps. These are great ways to be trendy and save Mother Earth at the same time!
If there’s a perfume you’ve always dreamed of trying, then head over to Perf & Co. Manila’s page! They can replicate your dream scents at affordable prices. Now, you can try Jo Malone Nectarine, D&G Light Blue, or Clinique Happy—basically any scent you’ve been curious about. And get this: if you’ve been missing your staycations at Shangri-la, Okada, or Solaire, Perf & Co. Manila also offers hotel-inspired room fragrances!
Gadgets straining your eyes? Eye Know Right has a range of sleek blue light filter eyeglasses to shield your peepers. Choose from styles based on the look you’re aiming for, like The Bully, The Boss, or The Burgis. You can also snatch a pair of snazzy sunglasses from their lineup for your weekend escapes. BTW, part of EKR’s proceeds goes to partner charities like Project World.
If you’re low on coffee, this coffee shop might pique your interest! Disciple Brew offers ground coffee, coffee bags, and coffee drips in various beans and flavors. Want something chocolatey? Try their Benguet coffee. Want something slightly sweet? Go for Arabica. Or, try their flavored coffees. They have butterscotch, vanilla, and mocha coffee, among others.
This up-and-coming fashion brand started when co-founder Pia Ugarte’s sister-in-law arrived from Spain with a rubber tote bag with rope straps. At the time, only straw beach bags were available in the Philippines. Now, Viajecito creates stylish, versatile bags with materials sourced from Europe, China, and Japan. You might want to check out Viajecito’s Splashkit collection. These brightly colored, sling-type rubber purses with removable straps are great for girls-on-the-go, especially now that we all want to get things done fast when we’re outside.
If the laidback, tropical girl is your vibe, then head over Sundals’ page and check out their comfy, stylish, and eco-friendly footwear. Their cute pairs are made with our tropical weather in mind, and are crafted by our artisans using locally sourced materials like abaca. These breezy pairs are the perf island-slash-summer lovers’ shoes!
The “ber” months are just around the corner. That said, it’s never too early to stock up on your Christmas notecards. Kaliwete’s cute hand-painted notecards can add that personal touch to make your presents extra special. They also have greeting cards, stickers, and metal straw sets in cute turtle-designed ecosleeves, which can be great eco-friendly presents.
