Kris Aquino’s praise for son Bimby on his thoughtful Christmas present turned into a defense of his clear skin.
A post on Aquino’s Instagram shows her 10-year-old posing with a book, which he surprised his mom as a Christmas gift.

He asked what Christmas gift he could give me, because he hadn’t bought me anything in Tokyo or HKG, and i was watching a British vlogger i follow & she showed this as 1 of her favorite 2017 Christmas gifts. Bimb took a picture & asked @alvingagui to look for the book. @nbsalert had it! And yesterday he surprised me w/ my new book. The cutest part is that he paid back @alvingagui w/ his allowance since inabonohan muna ni Alvin. #myheartmelted ❤️ADVERTISEMENT
She said he got the idea when she was watching a vlog and the book came as a recommendation. The book is “Handbags: A Love Story,” a compendium of the most coveted luxury handbags for the past 75 years.
“Bimby took a picture and asked [assistant] Alvin Gagui to look for it,” shared the proud mom.
“He paid back Gagui with his allowance,” she gushed.
While comments hailed Bimby’s thoughtfulness, one quipped that the picture seemed to have a filter.
The comment reads, “Nakabeauty effect ata si Bimb (The beauty effect was used on Bimb)?”
In her reply, Aquino quashed any doubt that Bimby’s flawless skin was natural.
“Have you ever considered that our home is well lit, my phone’s camera has high-quality resolution and with 3.3 million followers I’d make sure my son’s good skin was clearly evident?”
She concluded, “Maybe you and your friend would like to meet us in person to prove that he doesn’t need beauty effect because he got his mom’s DNA?”
Hours later, she posted another picture of Bimby up close with the hashtag #nofilter.
She also shared a selfie of her wearing natural-looking makeup.

Shooting at the flagship store of @nespresso🇵🇭 tomorrow. Then it’s a dinner meeting w/ the owners of our country’s biggest cosmetics company. Thank you @jacksalvador & @rochelleahorro, after Church we dropped them off @smmegamall to buy me samples. I didn’t want to go to the dinner w/o trying some of their makeup personally. We haven’t closed the contract, this is just a “getting to know you” meeting- but immediately i can say i loved their eyebrow pencil, their powder, and the pink blush. I applied them all by myself & just wanted a natural look. #kilayislife ❤️
No word yet if the Instagram user will take the offer to meet the Queen of All Media and her son in person. /ra
