Hello Glow has officially launched the newest addition to their sun care portfolio, the Hello Glow Sun Care Stick SPF 60+ PA++ (Php 395)! Referred to as the #SPFSuperstar, this new product innovation has the highest SPF rating among stick format sunscreens in the market. And just as sun care and skin care now go hand-in-hand, it’s boosted with luxurious and nourishing active ingredients, too.

Hello Glow’s launch party entitled “Stick to the Fun” was held last May 30, 2023 at the Island in BGC. Hosted by Aiyana Perlas, the highlight of the night was a beauty talk featuring well-loved Youtuber and skincare influencer Jan Angelo and board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jaja Lao-Ang. Brand founder, Denice Sy, joined the two as well to discuss Hello Glow’s newest Sun Care Stick, as well as expounding on sun care trivia and debunking a few skin care myths.
What impressed Jan most about the product was the four UV filters present in the formula, further solidifying its SPF strength. Namely, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Zinc Oxide, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate. He loves the presence of Cica among the active skincare ingredients too, which guarantees “that the product is soothing” and suitable for those with acne-prone and oily skin like Jan.

Dr. Jaja did a live demonstration on how to re-apply the Hello Glow Sun Care Stick over her makeup on stage. The sunscreen stick effectively blotted and mattified her skin, and seamlessly glided over her face without messing her makeup. Host, Aiyana, exclaimed how there was barely any transfer on the sunscreen stick afterwards, too. Jan mentions that Hello Glow’s Sun Care Stick is lipid-based, so that in itself already prevents bacterial growth, so “no need to worry about it being unhygienic.” However, when applying over make-up, it doesn’t harm to wipe it after every use.
In line with making skincare enjoyable, Denice says, “We wanted sunscreen to be fun and something we can be consistent with. So the more often you use it throughout the day, the better.” Dr. Jaja agrees that people should “stick to the fun” when it comes to their sun care choices, because you should want to wear it daily. As a final word of advice, Dr. Jaja recommends using a traditional liquid sunscreen as base, and then layering the Hello Glow Sun Care Stick over for maximum protection.
Before the Hello Glow Sun Care Stick launch, Hello Glow’s already has a best-in-class range of superior sun care products; such as their O.G. 3-in-1 Lightweight Sun Care Gel which has a watery formula, to the Anti-Pollution Tinted Sunscreen which utilizes tone-adapt technology, to their Ultralight ++ Sunscreen which has a serum-gel consistency, as well as their early summer release, the Sun Care Lip Balm with SPF 20! All of these can be used together with the Hello Glow Sun Care Stick SPF 60+ PA++ for the ultimate sun protection.
