[PR] : The rise of e-cigarettes and RELX Technology - RELX Vape

September 23, 2019

Hiya, rookie momma and other readers!

Are you smoking, vaping, of just looking fo a way to break the habit? Let me help you with that. We've recently partnered with RELX Philippines for this Press Release and to promote the alternate way to smoking cigarettes. RELX is the leading e-cigarette brand and Asia!

I know I've recently reached out to my 16,000 Facebook group called - First Time Moms PH and I have discovered that a lot of moms within our community are wanting to switch from cigarette to e-cigarette but doesn't really know where to begin, so let me help you with that.


The use of electronic cigarettes has surged worldwide over the past decade, with the global market valued at US$10.3B in 2018 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.9% from 2019 to 2025 per multiple reports. Though there are several major players in the vaping industry, most of them owned by tobacco companies, one recent independent entrant, RELX Technology – pronounced “relax” – has stood out from the competition.

Origins: Female entrepreneurship and concern for family and friends

Founded by ex-Uber China Head Kate Wang in January 2018, RELX Technology’s products have experienced tremendous success with adult smokers globally, catapulting it to the position of the leading closed-system e-cigarette brand in Asia.
Motivated by her father’s lifelong struggle to quit cigarettes and the lack of suitable new generation products in the market, Wang took it upon herself to start a company that prioritizes innovation, safety, and product quality.

An independent e-cigarette brand that works ethically
With a mission to empower adult smokers through advanced technology and user-friendly design without sacrificing ethics, RELX Technology’s core business encompasses independent R&D, product design and development, and sales. From its inception, RELX Technology has conceptualized and put into effect its ‘Guardian Program’ - a company-wide initiative that stretches from product development to sales, ensuring that the company puts the necessary effort in preventing and discouraging the use of e-cigarettes by minors, whether this be through concerted efforts with retailers to step up on-site identification of purchasers, or launching facial-recognition vending machines in China that dispense products only to adults against their national ID cards.

Cutting-edge R&D that focuses on problems faced by adult smokers wishing to quit cigarettes
In an industry focused on top-line growth, RELX Technology has invested millions of dollars into building its own facilities and operates the first CNAS-certified lab owned by an independent vape brand. RELX Technology also holds more than 20 international patents on its groundbreaking innovations in e-cigarette technology, all geared towards improving safety, quality, and user experience that helps smokers quit cigarettes more efficiently. Its products such as the RELX Alpha and RELX i include a haptic feedback feature called SmartPace, which vibrates to let users know when they should stop vaping and put down their devices. RELX Tech’s latest product, a smart e-cigarette called RELX i, connects to the companion smartphone app that features in-depth usage statistics and a child lock that prevents unauthorised use.

RELX Technology brings its advanced e-cigarette products to Philippines
RELX is now available in the Philippines through its physical stores and online partners such as Lazada and Shoppee. The RELX starter kits are available in the variants of Classic Black, Rose Gold. Space Gray, Navy Blue, Red, and Turquoise 



and just recently they have released the Celestial series, which features the stunning variants of Sunset Glow, Solar Eclipse, and Mystic Aurora. 


RELX also has a wide range of pod flavors such as Mango, Lemon Tea, Blueberry, Grapefruit, Ludou Ice, Fresh Cucumber, Mint, Classic Tobacco, Banana, Green-tea, Peach Oolong, and Icy Slush. All RELX starter kits comes with 1 vape electronic cigarette, charger, and 1 pod priced at Php 1,599.00

My before photo:



Skin type:
Very dry skin
Eczema prone skin
Sensitive skin

Lifestyle:
Works at graveyard
I do 15 - 30 mins daily exercise
I love meat & junkfood

Current health & skin condition on my 1st week:
I was sick with fever, flu, cough and was taking other medicines as well.
I had a few pimples

1st week experience (Sept 12 - Sept 19, 2019)

I am taking 1 capsule everyday when I woke up in the morning, after 30 minutes I will eat breakfast or skip breakfast. I don't really like eating breakfast because most of the time I do my morning exercise and water would suffice. Some day, I eat cereals or oatmeals.

One thing I noticed after a week of taking one capsule daily in the morning is that my skin is more plumped than before. I do still have dry patches, especially over those areas that I get eczema on but other areas are looking really plumped and soft. 

Other than this, I didn't notice anything major yet. So, this week I'll be starting to take 2 capsules daily in the morning. The ideal capsule intake is 1 - 3 capsules daily when you're hungry and then you can eat after 30 minutes.

After week 1 photo:


Current health & skin condition after my 1st week:
Skin is looking more plump, my pimples are also gone.

2nd week experience (Sept 20 - Sept 26, 2019)

I'm taking 2 capsules every morning before breakfast. or sometimes I don't really eat breakfast because surprisingly, the collagen makes me feel really full.

New things I noticed is that my hair fall definitely lessened this week. There's less fallen hair on my pillow whenever I wake up the next time, and on my hair brush as well.

It kept my skin really supple and hydrated. I actually stopped using moisturiser as part of my night tie skin care routine because I just felt like my skin is already hydrated enough.

After week 2 photo:



3rd week experience (Sept 27 - October 5, 2019)

I'm still taking 2 capsules daily before breakfast. The fullness that I've been feeling is real. I don't get hungry as much and it will take me an hour or past 12pm before I get hungry again so for me, it helps with my clean eating and dieting.

My skin is super plump. The cold season is already here and usually around this time of the year my skin would be really dry and my eczema would flare up but so far so good. I stopped putting on heavy moisturizer on my face. But I still use serums.

Hairfall completely is less and less everyday. I only noticed them when I brush my tangled hair unlike before where there's hairfall whenever I shower or wake up in the morning.

Health wise, I don't really feel anything special or noticed anything drastic but it did improved my overall complexion. I don't go out putting on make-up for this month, I just use sunscreen. 


4th - 5th week experience (October 6 - October 20, 2019)

I changed my capsule intake from 2 capsules to 3 capsules per day just so I can see if there will be noticeable differences. This time, I continued takin them for two weeks and so far the results stayed the same.

My bottle is almost half and I'm a bit worried to stop taking them once I'm done because my hair fall might come back. For me, not worrying about my hair fall is by far the best benefit I have gained form doing this challenge.

My skin stayed the same, hydrated and plump. I do get a few breakouts here and there but they never stayed for too long.




Thank you for joining me on this journey! Hope you get to try them too!
