Blog Giveaway : WIN SkinWhite Products From Ericayub.com

“They were all telling me to go away.”

These were the uttered words of Anano, 6, a child actor who was part of an advocacy I saw on Facebook. The child's words never left my mind. It clearly shows what the "world" looks at -- only external appearance.
This is the sad truth. More people should look at the heart. I know the experiment deeply hurt the little one's heart and must have been traumatic. But this kind of experiment may also help to bring awareness to people since every one of us is being ignored, pushed aside and deprived of everything if the world doesn't accept the physical appearance.

But it doesn’t need to be this way. As beauty should never have been one or the other, as claimed by SkinWhite in their new campaign.

One would wonder why a skin whitening brand such as SkinWhite would dare to say that dark skin is beautiful. “It’s all about choice”, says Rachelle Layda, Marketing Manager for Whitening of Splash Corporation.

“SkinWhite is a brand that empowers women to choose. A choice to define their own standard of beauty. If you choose to have dark skin, you are beautiful. If you choose to have white skin, you are just as beautiful. The choice is yours, and SkinWhite respects that choice”.

It's refreshing and speak volumes, especially at a time when shaming and bullying is prevalent across social media. Haters abound online with no agenda but to shame in all forms and ways – body-shaming, hair-shaming, race-shaming, gender-shaming, and yes, also skin-shaming.

“This is precisely the stigma that we wish to change. Skin color should not be about one being better than the other”, adds Pam Sulit, Splash Corporation’s VP for Marketing.
“White and dark are both beautiful.” confirms Rachel Villanueva, Creative Director of Petch & Partners, the creative agency that created this campaign for SkinWhite. She continues, “It’s about time that dark skin and white skin get the same adoration and acknowledgment.”

There has never been an outright claim that DARK IS BEAUTIFUL. And for the statement to come from a skin whitening brand, it should be easy for others to follow suit. And for those who choose that WHITE IS BEAUTIFUL, there’s due acknowledgement that they’re simply taking control of their beauty too.
And why not?
Wear your skin, whichever way you choose. Because DARK OR WHITE, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.

So now, I ask you this : Is skin color important to you?

  1. For me hindi importante kung anu man ang kulay ng balat natin. Maputi man maitim o morena. Lahat pantay pantay Sana ganun din sa paningin ng iba. Pero nakakalungkot man may mga tao padin na pagiba ang skintone mo or hindi kagandahan e. Decline agad. Like sa trabaho na inaaplayan mo, sana hindi bumabase sa panglabas. Lahat tayo maganda na nilikha ng diyos anu man ang kulay mg balat natin. O anu pa man ang itsura natin. Kaya maging proud tayo be contented kung anung meron tayo.. Nasa pag uugali padin natin yan kung maganda ang attitude mo,You looks beautiful inside and out..

  2. No.. Kasi kahit ano pa man ang ating skin color dark or white maganda tayo in our own unique way at di lang naman sa panlabas o skin color nkikita ang ganda ng isang tao kundi pati narin sa ugali.
    Me,ilove being morena kasi ito ako,ako to .pinapaalala nito kung saan ako nag mulA pero kahit kaylan ang pagiging morena ko hindi to humadlang para maging isang mabuti tao ako o para abutin ko ang aking mga pangarap.
    Every skin color is UNIQUE and AMAZING mapa maputi ,morena o maitim man .

    Mahalin natin ang sarili natin at sa paraan nayun magiging maganda tayo dahil magiging confident tayo.

  5. Pinanganak ako dito sa Pilipinas na may natural na TAN skin. Noong bata pa ako, pinangarap ko din na magkaroon ng makinis at maputing balat tulad ng sa mga napapanood ko noon sa TV at Movies. Nag effort akong mag lotion at gumamit ng mga sabon na nakakaputi. Na achieve ko naman sa tulong ni SkinWhite noon. Yan ang brand na panalo sa skin ko dahil dyan ko lang naramdaman at napatunayan na kaya pa palang ma achieve ng isang TAN ang skin ang maputi at makinis na balat.
    Noong magkaroon ang ng sariling pamilya at ng mga anak. Hindi ko na halos mabigyan oras ang aking sarili. Mas inuuna ko muna ang pag aalaga at budget sa mga anak ko.
    Nakalimutan ko na din ang daily routine ko sa sarili ko noon pagkagising at bago matulog.
    Nakakilala ako ng iba't ibang uri ng tao at iba't ibang lahi. May maitim, may maputi at mga gaya kong kutis kayumanggi. Naiisip ko, pareparehas lang din naman kaming TAO. They treat me normally like hindi naman ako nakaramdam na iba ang turing nila sa kapwa nila at never ko naman na feel na mataas sila sakin kaya ganun din ang pag trato ko sa kanila. Siguro mayroon lang talagang mga taong mapanghusga at mapagmataas, mabuti nalang at may mabubuting puso ang aking mga nakakasalamuha.

    Kaya naman masasabi ko na hindi importante kung anong kulay mayroon ang isang tao. Maputi man, maitim o kayumanggi, lahat ay pantay pantay lang ng kalagayan sa buhay. Mas importante parin na magkaroon ng busilak at magandang kalooban ang isang tao.

  6. For me di na importante ang skin color, maputi o morena okay lang. Pero dito sa Pinas kaya Morena tayo para may paglaban tayo sa init ng araw, pero nauso satin ang magpaputi. Aminin man natin o Hindi, iba ang tingin sayo ng tao kung maputi ka. Kaya nauso yan sabon at lotion na pampaputi. Meron pang gumagastos talaga para ma achived nila ang magkaroon ng white complexion turok dito turok doon ng gluta. Mayaman e! Ika nga.
    Meron naman inborn ang pagkaputi kahit walang lahi ng foreigner blood, sila ang masuswerte.
    Kahit anong kulay ng skin complexion mo okay lang basta malinis ka sa katawan mo. Lahat ng nilikha ng Diyos ay maganda!

  7. We are is not easily defined by our color!

    Now a days color of the skin is so important because of the word discrimination! Just like me before, I'm so maitim talaga anjan pa yung moment na ayaw sau ng crush mo kasi maputi ang gusto nya. 😀 that's why nagporsige ako mkataposat kahit nag working student ako proud ako hanggang sa nkatpos ako. I did my best na pumuti khit konti lang. (This is for my own experience lang po) but always remember We are beautiful, and wild, elegant in our own ways!
    There is no one like another, and each is radiant in a special and unique way no matter what your skin tone is!

  9. Simple lang ang masasabi ko, hindi important ang kulay ng balat. Balat lang naman yan eh, pwedeng madamage, tumanda, kumulubot at kung ano ano pa. Ang mahalaga ay yung kalooban natin, kung paano tayo makisama sa iba, paano tayo magiging isang mamamayan na may silbi sa lipunan at higit sa lahat marunong tayong kilalanin ang Diyos. ☺ Sa mata ng diyos tayo ay pantay pantay, walang maputi, walang maiitim lahat tayo ay love nya. God bless

  10. Hindi naman mahalaga ang kulay ng skin dahil ito ang binigay saatin ng Diyos maganda tayo ano pa man meron tayo
    sapagkat ang ugali ang higit na mahalaga at marunong tayo makisama at may positibong pananaw sa buhay at mahalin natin kung ano meron tayo sa sarili natin dahil ang kasiyahan nagmumula sa kalooban at kaya binibigay saatin ito dahil may dahilan at nilikha niya tayo unique way.

  13. Skin color is not important for me. It's true that there are some who judge you by the color of your skin. This makes most Filipina become insecure with their complexion. However, we should not be easily discouraged by their words saying "maganda ka pag maputi ka". Like, what is that? Skin color as the basis of beauty is non-sense. What I'm trying to say here is that we are all created beautifully and uniquely. Remember that. I'm not against whitening products. Actually, they're great if they contain SPF, which protects and moisturizes our skin. To all the girls out there: be proud of your skin color. We are Filipinos and Western people love our skin color. God bless you.

  14. Hindi importante kung anong kulay ang meron ako ang importante ay kung paano kong pinahahalagahan kung ano ang binigay at meron ako. Nagiging conscious lang naman ang isang tao pag na-ja-judge na sya kung anong wala sya na meron ang iba ,kung ano ang hindi maganda sa kaniya na maganda naman sa iba. Tama choice ng isang indibidwal ang pagpili sa bawat bagay,choice niya rin naman kung pakikinggan niya ang pang-ja-judge sa kaniya, kung manggagaling lang naman sa atin na hindi pinapakinggan ang ibang tao, winiwish sana natin na kung minsan maging powerful ang mga payo natin sa iba dahil alam nating magiging mabuti yon para sa kanila, na sana matutunan din nilang hayaan ang mga mapanghusgangtao at pakinggan ang sarili dahil alam mo sa sarili mo ang fusto at makakabuti para sayo. Hindi tulad ng pakikinig sa iba na walang napala at naiambag sa pagiging tao mo dahil sa panghuhusga sayo. :)

  15. I am a filipina and I'm born with naturally beautiful morena skin �� Like other child, I grew up not concious about my appearance and skin color..I enjoyed playing under the sun.. While other always greeted me Negra..Negrita..Mocha... at kapag namatay ang ilaw.. nasaan si tin? nawawala sabay tawanan...and during teenagers life i tried to put blush on..and they teased me... wow para kang strawberry chocolate... and that is the time i decided to used skinwhite lotion ..due to curiosity...nangunguha lang ako sa ate ko.. curious ako pinanganak syang maputi pero gumagamit sya ng skin white...
    i remember nahuli nya ako..at sabi nya kaya pala nauubos yan and she teased me..hindi na tatalab sayo yan ganyan na talaga kulay mo... and i ask her bkit ikaw maputi ka na pero gumagamit ka nito ? she answered ...for sun protection at para di daw magdry ang skin and to remove some scars.. and she continued.. maganda tayo khit anong kulay naten..morena ka
    khit anong suotin mo bagay sayo ganun din ako dahil maputi ako.. from her words i was empowered and motivate to love my color and not ashamed of who i am...through this complexion some may teased me that im dark but through that darkness there is a brighter side lagi akong napapansin �� i joined pageant, fashion show and entered modelling. through this color it can make me stay in the sun, traveled, go on the beach and do everything i want ..

  16. Skin color is not important, and it's not the basis of beauty... we are all beautiful unique creatures of godHe created our skin with a different variety And we should be proud of it... beauty is not about our skin color...it's about having the purest heart

  17. Para sa akin, hindi importante ang skin color. Hindi natin pwedeng i-define ang beauty ng isang tao sa kung anong skin color niya. Lahat tayo ay may kanya kanyang pinipiling standard ng pagiging maganda at para sa akin ang sarili natin ang dapat nating piliin. May freedom tayong piliin ang ganda natin. Ang sarili dapat nating definition ng beauty ang dapat nating isinasabuhay. Maging maganda tayo sa kung anong choice natin, kahit anong hugis at kahit anong kulay pa yan. At the end of the day, ang dapat naman nating ma-impress at mapaligaya ay ang ating mga sarili at hindi ang ibang tao. Maganda ka at ako kahit anong kulay pa natin. Ako, isa akong proud morena at naniniwala akong MAGANDA AKO! ✨

  18. I would honestly say that years ago ( as a teenager) , i thought of having a white flawless skin so i can flaunt it at a young age. I am naturally born morena and being expose to environment in the province, i developed darker skin tone that i am ashamed of my own skin. Ate would use to buy whitening lotion ( SkinWhite to be exact ) and it's not effective for me at that time. When i went to college and see foreign students, i learned to embrace my morena skin. Afterall, i find myself unique. Realization came that SKIN COLOR isn't important as long as you're taking care of yourself then no matter what your skintone is, you'll glow. I find this campaign empowering , coming from a known whitening brand. We have our own choices, just never allow yourself to degrade others bec they are darker or based on their skin color. Real beauty comes from within.❤️ Learn to love our own bec God created us equal.

  19. Lahat ng Tao may angking kagandahan maputi man o maitim, may kanya kanya kapasidad at abilidad kaya naniniwala ako regardless of skin solor na unique ang bawat nilalang, maging humble tayu sapgkat ang Diyos ay hindi nagtatangi hindi saya pumipili, lahat ng kulay iniibig, laht may pagasa at may karapatang tanggapin. May mga taong sadyang gusto pumuti, para sakin wala namn problema siguraduhin lang na tama at safe ang anu mang gingawa o iniinom nila upang hindi sila mapahamak. Be Beautiful and unique na walang inaapakan ibang tao dahil mas masarap mamuhay ng payapa at malaya. 😊 GODBLESS Ms Erica 😍

  21. Q: Is skin color important to you?
    A: I grew up in the province. Bilad sa araw lagi so yung morena color ko,mas naging maitim. 😂
    In that place, lahat ng maputi maganda.
    But when I started studying and working in the city, I realized its not important. I used a lot of whitening products too from capsules,lotion and soap ect but my skin color didn't change much.
    I ask someone,what do they like about me? He said he loves my morena skin and my personality.
    He's a meztiso guy and he also want to get a tan skin.
    So its not just me who's not contented with my skin color. A lot of white people too wants to get the tan or dark skin. They are even willing to put tanning chemicals on their skin just to achieve it.
    We just need to love yourself more to be contented with what you have ❤️

    Is skin color important to you?

    Para sa akin importante ang skin color. My color is my identity na rin... Sa ibang Identification card, may nakalagay pa na color of the eye, kung may mole, skin color... Pinanganak akong maputi kaya nilalagay ko dun fair skin.
    Noong bata ako lagi akong napapansin ng mga kaklase ko hindi dahil sa matalino o magaling ako sa klase kundi dahil sa kulay ko. Ano daw yung parang guhit na maliliit sa mukha ko na kulay pula basta ganon... Wala pa kong kaalam-alam sa ugat kaya wala kong naisagot sa kanila.
    Minsan sumpa nga din ang kaputian ko mula bata hanggang kolehiyo. Naisip ko dati sana iba na lang kulay ko para di ako pansinin (iwas sipol at malayo sa kalalakihan na may masamang intensyon).
    Kapag nakakakita naman ako ng mga morena, para sa akin sila ang nagstastand out, gandang-ganda ko sa kulay nila. Opposite attract ba 😂
    Sinubukan kong magexperiment sa tan lotion nung college, sabi ko sa sarili ko... hindi bagay kasi hindi ako ito, hindi ko kulay ito.
    Simula noon, narealize ko na i-embrace ko kung anong kulay binigay sa akin ni God.

    Tungkol naman sa nabasa ko dito sa blog mo, I agree naman. Ikaw magdedesisyon kung saan ka magiging masaya, iyon ang ikulay mo. Basta love yourself 😊

  23. Sa totoo po, OO naiinggit po ako sa may mga mapuputi at makinis na balat pero hindi po ibig sabihin nun ginawa ko na siyang basehan para makilala ang isang tao.. For me, sa kasamaang palad hindi po ako nabibiyaan ng maputing balat pero I am thankful pa din po kung anu man ang kulay ng balat ko as long as I have a good heart. Char!!! Yes po! Kadalasan ng mga morena eh maganda na nga sa panlabas, maganda pa ang puso.. Kaya it's a big NO.. hindi natin pwedeng gawing basehan ang pagkakaroon ng mapuputing balat.. Kasi what white skin do, morena skin do more..
