#TheCollectiveParty Was the Quick Break We All Needed
Reading Time: 3 minutes
When was the last time you took time to enjoy your “me time”? With the hustle and bustle of work and the city, it’s almost impossible to take a pause and enjoy.
ICYMI, #TheCollectiveParty happened at Dr.Wine, BGC on August 10th. It was our first event for anything self-care. It was a time to unwind with friends. It was an event filled with meeting new friends, great conversations, and a bit of booze!
“[The party] was good, relaxing, intimate, and chill…just my kind of event!”
– Belle Rodolfo, Beauty Editor for L’Officiel PH
Co-founders Dominique and Michael also shared how The Collective started, along with the platform’s milestones including Club Collective and that time where The Collective handed out 2,000 water bottles for free during the Pride march and contributed to helping the golden LGBTQ+ community from LadLad.

The Collective for all and the planet
The co-founders also shared how The Collective is all for skin inclusivity, representing all skin colors, types, and concerns, and highlighted that skin is genderless. “We do our best to minimize carbon footprint in our daily operations by being strategic when it comes to shipping,” Michael shared on how The Collective plays its part in sustainability. Working alongside brands that use recycled packaging like Firsthand Supply, where bottles are made from recycled milk jugs or source products that are made from natural/biodegradable material like our loofa.
We’re only a call away
Do you remember those times when you would call through your phone to inquire about a product? Bringing back the nostalgia of a personal shopper, The Collective Hotline was also introduced. From asking about products to recommending and curating your skin routine, everything you might need to start your journey is all covered in just one ring.

“Aside from their impressive line of curated products, community made The Collective a true digital winner. Its approach to building conversations and real connections simply makes it diverse from any online beauty marketplace."
– Mega Magazine
The Collective Party served as a quick self-care retreat, an eye-opener, a mini-reunion of old and new friends
“This week is honestly so stressful for me, so grateful for such a well-thought-of event.”
– Elisa Aquino, Wonder Magazine
“Best afternoon ever at #TheCollectiveParty, really needed that Cryosticks energy boost + was so happy to meet with all my beauty and skincare friends both old and new!”

Your future is more than just your daily routine
Self-care is different for all of us - it can mean taking time off, a short trip, or participating in activities or events that serve as a breather from your typical routine. It’s not about being selfish; it’s about making yourself feel better to help foster a more positive outlook on life and others around you.
