Jinkee Pacquiao has finally achieved one of her life goals: to have her own skincare line.
The wife of the presidential aspirant and senator Manny Pacquiao is entering the beauty industry with the launch of Jinkee Skin.
She hosted an intimate launch party for Jinkee Skin held at Makati Diamond Residences on Tuesday, November 16, 2021.
"Natutupad yung mga pangarap, siyempre, by God's grace," Jinkee told PEP.ph in an exclusive interview at the launch.
She continued, "Sa tulong ng Panginoon, ito naman yung pinagpe-pray ko dati pa e. Nung una, yung ano ko cosmetics, yung lipsticks, cosmetic line. Kahit na nag-pandemic, pero at least na-introduce pa rin sa market. And then, ngayon naman Jinkee Skin... It's a dream come true for me. Ayun, grateful lang talaga."
For her eponymous skin-care line, Jinkee has once again teamed up with businesswoman Maricor Flores, who is also her business partner for Jinkee Cosmetics, which was launched in August 2020.
Jinkee told PEP.ph, "Matagal na kaming magkaibigan and nagtitiwala ako sa kakayahan niya so kami yung nag-partner."
Two years in the making
Jinkee has always dreamed of having her own skin-care line. But when she first had the idea, she felt at the time that she wasn't ready.
"Actually, matagal na, e, kaso lang, parang hindi pa ako confident. Parang nahiya pa ako, baka kasi may mag-bash," the 42-year-old mompreneur said.
Jinkee wanted to make sure that the products she will offer to the public are effective and won't cause any side effects.
She explained, "Ayoko kasi yung baka may sasabihin yung ibang tao. So talagang shinu-sure ko na yung products is hindi magkakaroon ng irritation sa skin ng gagamit. Kasi dun ako takot. Kailangan mabusisi yung proseso para at least ano, walang magrereklamo. Siyempre yun yung ina-avoid ko, yung may magreklamo. Kasi siyempre, kailangan yung produkto de kalibre, saka happy yung bibili, at saka mura pa."
The celebrity mom said she was very hands-on with the whole process, and revealed that she has tried all the products they're offering.
In fact, she used the products for two years before she decided to officially launch the skin-care line.
Since she has tried them herself, Jinkee can confidently say that her products will make the skin radiant and glowing.
During the launch, it was mentioned that her skin-care products are perfect for all types of skin.
Currently, Jinkee offers the Age-Control Nano Lightening Body Serum Lotion, the Age-Control Soap, and the Hydrating & Brightening Facial Wash.
She will soon release more products in early 2022.
Jinkee said, "Actually, itong mga products na ito, matagal ko nang ginagamit. So binibigyan ako ni Maricor ng mga products before pa. So siya yung nagsu-supply sa akin.
"Sabi ko, 'Cor, why not gawin nating ano Jinkee Skin, kasi interested talaga ako.' Kasi nagamit ko na yung product at saka hindi na akong mahihiyang i-introduce siya."
She later added, "Talagang maganda siya sa skin ko. Ayun, kaya nag-come up kami ng... my own product."
