Another blessing was unlocked for Kapuso primetime actress Marian Rivera-Dantes as she remains solid and strong with Rei Tan’s Beautederm following her renewal of contract for being brand ambassador for fourth straight year.

Marian is the face of Reverie Line of Beautéderm Home which consists of all-natural soy candle, room and linen spray, and air purifier products.

“Marian and I developed a very close friendship over the years since she first joined the family as brand ambassador of Beautéderm Home,” says Tan. “Our relationship transcends business, as we consider each other as sisters. We regularly talk to each other not just about work, but about updates in our personal lives as well.”

Marian on the other hand is equally ecstatic with her continued partnership with Beautéderm Home. “We are really like family. Rei has been a very good and supportive friend to me, and I value our loving relationship very much. Beautéderm Home has been part of our my daily essentials in maintaining a refreshing and relaxing ambiance at home that I could really relax in with my husband and my children.”

Tan and Marian are currently collaborating in developing exciting new products under the Beautéderm Home, which is expected to be launched within the year now that the brand is gearing up with the celebration of its 12th year in the business.

“This is truly an exciting year not only for me but for Beautéderm Home as well,” says Marian. “I am looking forward to the many projects and collaborations that I will do with the brand, and I am very grateful for the wonderful friendship that Rei and I share with each other. It’s really a blessing to find true and lasting friendship in this industry, and I will always be happy to call her sister, and I am honored to represent Beautéderm Home.”


Manila Mayor Isko Moreno is making a big movie comeback as our hero Andres Bonifacio to be directed by award-winning Erik Matti with Dondon Monteverde as producer. The project’s working title “May Pagasa” is a story of hope and positivity that Dondon revealed would be a big, challenging project.

“For months, my business partner and director Erik Matti and I were trying to figure out who could best portray the role of Andres Bonifacio on our very first historical film venture, ‘May Pag-asa’ (There is hope). After months of deliberation, our hands down choice is none other than the Honorable Mayor of Manila, Isko Moreno.

“A picture shows the close resemblance of the two great men of action and not men of words when it comes to getting things done. Both Bonifacio and Yorme were born in Tondo, Manila. Both were also actors.

“These are just some natural qualities both men have in common. Erik and I are thankful that Yorme has committed to the project and is ready to go back again to his love of acting for the big screen,” Dondon said.

Meanwhile, Isko said he is excited to go back to acting. “I’m honored and humbled for this opportunity. It’s going to be very challenging, but I hope I can live up to your expectations. I will do my best. But one thing is for sure, there will be scenes similar with my early life that will make the role easier to portray.”

The movie will start shooting on the last week of June 2021.
