The firm reports that the Number Series’ consolidated volume of 40 million units worldwide is reflective of the young brand’s growing position within the global tech industry, currently ranking fourth among “New Age Smartphone Families” in the world. realme was able to achieve this milestone in less than four years since its launch in 2018, making the Number Series one of the fastest Android smartphone product lines to have reached the 40-million mark.

As one of realme’s most well-loved lineups, the Number Series serves as a testament to the brand’s commitment to offering quality innovation at an accessible price. Headlined by the realme 8 Series launched in the Philippines in 2021, the lineup has consistently performed well in the mid-range segment year after year. In addition, according to Strategy Analytics, the Number Series has been pivotal to its scale-up to be the fastest brand ever to ship 100 million units in the entire history of the smartphone.

This achievement further proves realme’s strong and steady momentum across the globe. In the Philippines, the brand has consistently ranked no. 1 for the first three quarters of 2021, based on sell-in data by research firms Canalys and IDC.

Get Glowing This 2022 with These Skincare Tips You Shouldn’t Skip On

We’ve finally let 2021 go. But there are still things we need to keep this new year – our skincare routines!

We’re reminded time and time again to keep ourselves healthy, including our skincare. While it can be overwhelming to work on your new year goals, you can keep your glow this 2022 with these skincare tips you shouldn’t skip on:

1. Score e-comm deals for your skincare haul.
Get bigger discounts for your skincare haul when you check-out around the wee hours of the night. With almost 50% discount in Olay’s e-comm stores, stock up on your skincare essentials and enjoy the freebies for yourself, and or your loved ones!

2. Reward yourself a skincare upgrade.
For everything that you and your skin have been through this year, your skincare needs an upgrade. Reward yourself this holiday by trying on some of the biggest skincare trends, like retinol and collagen peptide.

Olay Retinol24 Serum
Welcome the new year with your youthful glow powered by Olay Retinol24 night Serum. Its powerful formulation of retinol is proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, fade dark spots, and tighten pores. It delivers anti-aging ingredients deep into your skin's surface for plumper, firmer skin — so you wake up as if the morning after is not a disaster.
Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide24 Moisturizer
If you want to achieve younger-looking skin, one skincare trend you shouldn’t skip on these holidays is collagen. collagen, which humans naturally produce, is what helps maintain the firmness and plumpness of skin. However, collagen production starts to slow down when we enter our 20s. By the time we reach our 40s, collagen production has decreased by 15 to 30%, already being visible through the skin.

While most beauty products claim to be packed with high concentration of collagen, only a few can penetrate the skin well, leaving collagen just at the surface of your face. Olay’s formula of Niacinamide and Collagen Peptide24 in each bottle of the Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptime24 moisturizer stimulates collagen production like how collagen would occur naturally. This helps make skin look firmer and maintain moisture. And with just 2 weeks of use, the skin is visibly tightened, more supple, and firmer than ever.

3. Bond with your BFFs over online skincare party
Catch-up safely with your BFFs over skincare Zoom party by trying on Olay Super Serums variants. Dealing with uneven skin tone and dark spots? The Olay White Radiance Niacinamide + Vitamin C Super Serum evens out the skin tone, reduces dark spots, and leaves skin glowing as ever.
If your skin feels dry or dehydrated from the ever-changing circumstances, the Olay White Radiance Niacinamide + Hyaluronic Super Serum is right for you. Hyaluronic is a powerful humectant, which attracts and binds water, keeping the skin fully hydrated while looking dewy and bouncy.

For skin that’s looking tired and dull, the Olay White Radiance Niacinamide + Cica Super Serum provides a healthy glow. The combination of Niacinamide and Cica soothes skin damage and leaves it with a much smoother surface. A natural extract known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-yellowness effect, Cica helps to keep your skin looking radiant.

4. Take a glowing portrait to welcome the new year!
Power through the new year with the Olay Power Duo. Giving 40% better hydration, take a portrait of your glowing look with your plump and bouncy skin!

Olay Luminous Light Perfecting Essence: Infused with Pearl Optics Technology, this serum is perfect for you who want to get that radiant glow!
Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream: This cream is used as the last step in your routine. Designed to deliver moisture 10 layers deep into the skin’s surface, it leaves your skin hydrated and firm.

Century Tuna unveils inspiring new video by top director Antoinette Jadaone

Century Tuna releases first-ever short film entitled ‘Dahilan’ directed by award-winning director Antoinette Jadaone


Everyone has reasons for staying strong and healthy. And in Century Tuna’s short film entitled ‘Dahilan’ directed by award-winning director Antoinette Jadaone, viewers will get to see the story of a young man and his fitness journey as it unfolds.

If you haven’t seen 'Dahilan’ yet, watch the full video on Century Tuna’s official Facebook page (https://bit.ly/CenturyTunaLoveStrong) before you read this entire article as there are spoilers ahead.

The two-minute video, starts with a montage of the young man working out with improvised home equipment. It then cuts to him cooking a special meal, which he brings up to the rooftop of his small apartment for a simple but heartfelt ‘date’. It is then revealed that his date is actually his mom with disability, and he has to carry her up to the rooftop. They have been doing the breakfast dates on that same rooftop ever since he was young and he wanted to continue to bring happiness to his mom by doing the same.

“Sa panahon ngayon, we must be strong - not just physically but also mentally, and not just for ourselves but also for the people we love. Humuhugot tayo ng lakas sa isa't isa,” shared Jadaone.

For Century Tuna, the country’s leading canned tuna, the short film takes on a new definition to health: “Many of our previous campaigns showcased fit and sexy bodies, which can be achieved with the help of Century Tuna. With ‘Dahilan’, we are telling the story of our consumers’ “why” – the reason for wanting to have a strong body to take on challenges. We wanted to highlight the importance of living a healthy lifestyle for the people we care about,” said Century Pacific Food Inc. (CPFI) VP and GM for Tuna Division Carlo Endaya.

Thankfully, Jadaone shares the same vision for her first project with Century Tuna, stressing that ‘Dahilan’ focuses more on the story and narrative. “Sa brief pa lang, nakita ko nang it's a different Century Tuna project - hindi naka-focus sa abs, sa katawan, sa muscles. It's about being strong pa rin - pero for the people you love.”

“Sa’yo ako humuhugot ng lakas,” narrated the son in a voice-over. “Kahit ang bigat ng mundo, kinakaya ko. Kasi ‘ma, kinaya mo.”

#CenturyTunaLoveStrong message serves as an inspiration for Filipinos to stay strong and healthy not just for ourselves but for the people we love. 


The voice-over, further complemented by the short film’s original song, was a creative touch by the esteemed director: “My editor Ben Tolentino—who's also my editor in my films like “Fan Girl” and “Never Not Love You”—and I added voice-overs of the son. So aside from the song lyrics, nakasilip tayo sa kung ano ang nararamdaman ni son while he's doing all these for his mom. I'm happy Century Tuna and the agency loved that additional touch.”

As the world continues to face the challenges of the pandemic, the short film’s “Love Strong” message serves as an inspiration for Filipinos to stay strong and healthy for themselves and for the people they love.

“Dahilan” highlights the importance of living a healthy lifestyle for the people we care about.

Given the meaningful outcome of the video, Carlo Endaya considers Antoinette Jadaone the perfect choice for the “Love Strong” short film. “We’re happy to work with Direk Tonet on this project. Through powerful storytelling, she perfectly captured the message that we wanted to convey: that we stay strong and healthy not just for ourselves but for the people we love as well.”
