Maxi-Peel Project Renewal at GMA 7’s Marian Show

Improved and completely confident versions of Maxi-Peel girls, Belle, Crystal, and Shane were featured last November 29 at GMA 7’s Marian Show. They are the three lucky girls that were chosen by Marian Rivera and Maxi-Peel Skin Care to embark on a 30-day journey to self-renewal.

As a woman, I know it very well that it takes more than strength to accept a challenge like this as you need to reveal yourself as well as your skin problems to the general public. With the hope that Maxi-Peel is the answer to their skin and beauty problems, Belle, Crystal, and Shane took the 30-day challenge.

The three girls followed Marian’s day and night Maxi-Peel beauty regimen for 30 straight days which brought them so many changes in just a month. During their interview with Marian, each girl revealed the changes that Maxi-Peel brought to their lives. Not only physical changes, but emotional and interpersonal, as well.

Belle, our bride-to-be, is now ready to face her big day with confidence. Her oily skin, which was prone to breakouts, has improved a lot after she religiously followed Marian’s day and night beauty regimen for 30 days straight. Not only does she look better, she also feels so much happier on the inside.

Crystal, fresh college graduate, has tried different products in the past, but none of those products helped with her pimple problems. With the help of Maxi-Peel products and religiously following Marian’s beauty regimen, she is now ready to face her life after school. She is also confident enough to apply for a job. “Gusto ko maka hanap ng work para maka tulong sa mga magulang ko at makapag pa-aral sa mga kapatid ko”, says Crystal.

Shane, who is a management candidate, now has the confidence to face her colleagues. She’s working in a call center, and due to the work schedule and stress, she’s been having breakouts. She even tried expensive products just to get rid of her pimples, but none of them worked for her. She’s happy that she took the Maxi- Peel 30-day to self-renewal challenge and has seen improvement in her skin.

Their journey with Maxi-Peel continues….

Maxi-Peel Project Renewal also dubbed as “Bagong Ganda, Bagong Pag-Asa” journey truly changed the lives of these three young ladies. Through Belle, Crystal, and Shane, Maxi-Peel proved to us that there is hope for whatever skin problems we are facing. Watch below the full interview of the three girls with Marian Rivera.


In all honesty, looks matter a lot in many situations - to impress people in social situations, or to look best in the work place. It is true that if you look good, you feel good. Physical appearance does affect your overall personality. Not only that, it also boosts self-confidence and self-esteem.

Taiwan Excellence- Mothers Know Best

My mother is a living proof that "Mother truly knows best". My Mom raised me on some amazingly good advice, though I never really went through a rebellious stage, I didn't completely appreciate those advice at the time. I am 28 now, when I look back, I realize how grateful I am for her insistence.

Raising me alone, my Mom is pretty much my everything – my first teacher, my nurse when I am sick, my lawyer when I get in trouble, and my superwoman. I am still amazed on how she juggles on her responsibilities masterfully, not only as a mother.

Growing up, Mom always makes sure that I get the best or we get the best things at home. Whenever she purchased something, she always checks the quality of the products and making sure that those products would last years. It’s probably because we can’t afford to buy new things all the time.

I am glad that Taiwan Excellence has launched a campaign in the Philippines that promotes high quality Taiwan-made products that meets the high expectations and requirements of the world’s most demanding consumer-- Mothers. Organized by Bureau of Foreign Trade of Taiwan (BOFT), and implemented by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), Taiwan Excellence campaign is bringing the best Taiwanese lifestyle brands with symbol of quality to the Philippines market. 

Endorsed by actress-host Iya Villania-Arellano, Taiwan Excellence campaign makes it easier for Mothers to identify what products are of good quality that can be used for her family. Mothers will not compromise the health, comfort, and safety of her loved ones, and know that high quality products are what her family needs. The seal of quality assures Mothers that the products she will be purchasing will help her family address their different wants and needs.

To date, the campaign carries 56 different brands for home and living, sports, transportation, and personal care. For the home, there are water ionizers, home appliances, cookware, bathroom and sanitary ware products from brand like HCG, Tatung, TECO and Cashido. For electronic needs, there are laptops, USBs, routers from Acer, ASUS, Transcend, MSI. To keep the family healthy, the campaign carries brands that offer foldable bikes, fitness gear and health care products such as Strida, Microlife, and Thermedic.

When choosing products for our loved ones, quality should be the first thing to consider. Visit to learn more about the campaign, or follow them at their Facebook page
