Girl We Love: Jess Efenio


What do you do when you're not traveling?

I'm based in La Union so it's sort of a holiday feel for me every day but when I'm not traveling, I design swimwears for my brand pepper swim. I also manage our restaurant in La Union - seawadeeka. Of course I get to surf everyday when there's waves 🖤

What are your travel must-haves? 

A bikini, a camera, and coconut oil.


What do you like most about Wink? 

The service! How much the staff knows and explained everything about the procedure is the best!

How does Wink help you with your travels?

Wink has help me not to worry about unwanted hair when I'm out in the sun or surfing! I'm always in a bikini and I don't worry anymore in which bikini I would wear because Wink has taken care of it. 🖤


Best trip you've ever been on? 

Maldives! That place looks like it's photoshopped in real life and it's such a dream!

Do you have a travel bucket list? If so what countries/places are on it?

Yes! My bucket list has changed ever since I started surfing. I really want to visit Sri Lanka to surf!

What do you love about traveling?

Traveling has changed my perspective in life. I love how I'm able to learn with the people I meet. Also seeing beautiful places strengthens my faith and fills me with gratitude everyday.


What has been one of your favorite dishes you've eaten while traveling? 

I'm a vegan and I eat a lot!!! I recently went to Bali and almost all restaurants have vegan options even the warungs! But so far the best was the vegan burger and the local vegetable dish called Gado Gado. 🖤

If you can be anywhere right now, where would you be and why?

El Nido, Palawan! My dad has taken me to the best and secret spots around the area. We even found surf spots around our place! There are a lot of nice beaches in other countries but nothing beats the beauty of Palawan!

What's your go-to traveling hack/tip? 

Always travel light! I end up going to places last minute and carrying just 1 bag has made my life easier.
