We’ve all got problems. Oily girls struggle with acne and shine, while dry girls have to deal with flaking and redness. And if you’ve got combination skin, you’re probably juggling all of the above. No matter what your situation, maintaining smooth, clear skin is a huge commitment. Which is exactly why a miracle cream comes in handy! You know, that go-to, no-fail, makeover-in-a-bottle that makes your skin look better, stat?
If you don’t have one in rotation just yet, here are eight great creams to choose from. Vetted by our customers themselves, these formulas will have you smiling at yourself in the mirror as you inspect your skin the morning after. Promise.
COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask, P810
Ginger, 31, Combination Skin: “Prior to this product, I haven’t tried a sleeping mask that I actually liked. This product, however, is probably one of the best in the market. This will give you supple, smooth, and soft skin OVERNIGHT. Five stars.”
Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream, now on sale at P1,080 (limited time only)
Liza, 40, Combination Skin: “I love the smell but most of all I love how [my] skin looks and feels the next day. Of course, it’s the sum of all products I used the night before. After cleansing, I use Innisfree’s Volcanic Pore Toner (smells good and shrinks my pores!) followed by Innisfree’s Green Tea Serum (love this smell as well!). Then I apply this [cream]….voila! [The] next day my skin has never [looked so] great! My makeup glides and complements my skin. It’s so good I also use this in the morning before I put on my primer and makeup. Love Love Love!”
Tiam Vitamin Sleep 9 to 5 Crema Sleeping Cream, P950
Bianca, 17, Normal Skin: “I use this with the serum and let me say…. in 3 days it made my skin [look] glowing even if I only had 4 hours of sleep every night because of all-nighters. It also makes a huge difference with my post acne marks. If you’ll buy this, I suggest that you also [try] it with the serum. I swear it faded my post acne marks, made my skin glowing, and faked 12 hours of sleep! No joke. Buy this, everyone! You won’t regret it.”
DewyTree The Clean Facial Cream, P1,399
Chrissy, 27, Oily Skin: “This is the first moisturizer that I’ve purchased. I’ve been using this for almost a month now. What I like is that whenever I put this on at night, my face looks really plump in the morning. I use this with a toner, essence, serum, ampoule, and an eye cream, [using] this moisturizer for the final layer. It’s a bit thick and creamy in the face, but I guess that’s why it leaves my skin feeling very moisturized when I wake up. This didn’t cause me any irritation or breakouts so far. I’d recommend this for long term use for more youthful and healthier-looking skin.”
Mizon All in One Snail Cream, now on sale at P315 (limited time only)
Joyce, 24, Combination Skin: “I have tried various creams in my life but good God, this is literally the best cream I have ever used. I AM NOT KIDDING! The first night I applied this cream (after my usual double cleansing and toner + essence), I can feel it tightening my pores! And then, the next morning, holy wow! My skin still feels so tight! And the most amazing part is that all my pimples (and I had cystic pimples because it’s that time of the month), I SWEAR THEY BECAME FLAT! OMG? How amazing is that! My spots lightened and my eye area feels tighter. It feels so good putting on my makeup because my face is so smooth! I cannot stop with this product. And I’ve only used it for 3 days now. It’s amazing!”
J.One Hana Cream, P2,100
Dayan, 42, Dry Skin: “I consider this a miracle cream because just 1 pea-sized [amount of] cream made so much improvement on my very dry skin (my niece dubbed it as ‘El Nino’) overnight. I’ve been using this for more than 2 weeks now and my skin keeps on improving, with my wrinkles under the eye less visible. My face is 3H (Hydrated, Healthy and Happy) despite the stress I face at work every day. I’ve used a lot of anti-aging creams that are way [more] pricey but [have] no substantial change on my face, [so] that with this I have no complaint. This one’s a keeper.”
Skin Genie Apple Cider Vinegar Cream, now on sale at P263 (limited time only)
Ruby, 27, Combination Skin: “This product is amazing!!! I’m just on my third time of using it to fade my pimple scars on my cheek area and I can already see the difference. I’m using this with the Apple Cider Vinegar Toner and I’m 101% the duo works. Can’t wait to finally say goodbye to my dark marks. And yes, while some creams may cause breakouts, this one has not caused any breakout at all. I love how a small dollop of the cream goes a long way; I’m sure one tub will last me for months. Thumbs up, Skin Genie!”
