3. Caltex™ All-New Techron® Glides into Retail Stations
I'm no pro when it comes to cars and car engines, but I sure notice it when a car is performing better, which means smoother rides and better fuel efficiency. Good thing Caltex reformulated its signature Techron with the addition Clean & Glide Technology.
The ability of the new formulation to protect metal surfaces was proven in the High Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR) laboratory test. The standard diesel lubricity test was modified to safely assess the lubricating properties of gasoline. The results indicated that when compared to its predecessor in a controlled environment, Caltex’s new formulation with Clean & Glide technology was able to reduce metal wear and friction by an average of 38 percent and 41 percent respectively using gasoline from around Asia Pacific and South Africa. This is important because Caltex with Techron® is formulated to instantly reduce friction in the upper cylinder area of your engine. With continued use, Clean & Glide technology will begin to build–up in your car’s crankcase lubricant to replenish friction modifiers that are consumed during normal operation.
The new and improved Techron with Clean & Glide Technology will be available across all gasoline grades at Caltex service stations starting July 1.

6. Stand Up to Styling Damage With Tresemme Platinum Strength
For the fashion-conscious like me, it's common practice to hear the words "Tiis Ganda." After all, we're willing to sacrifice comfort for style, just to push wearing a stylish leather jacket despite the hot Manila weather. But we all know that Tiis Ganda moments doesn't just apply to clothes. Sometimes, in our desire to look good, we damage our hair with continuous styling, blow-drying, and coloring our hair. Are you guilty? Me too!
In come TRESemme Platinum Strength! It's a range of hair care products designed to help your hair #StandUpToStylingDamage. TRESemme Platinum Strength fortifies and strengthens hair like no other, repairing up to two years of damage caused by everyday hairstyling such as heat styling and coloring.

This technology’s intensive moisturizers strengthen every hair strand to prevent breakage and further signs of aggression—from coloring that dries the strands and makes them brittle to blow-drying, ironing, and curling that use heat and damage the locks.
