Looking for the crème de la crème from our assortment? Our customers have got you covered! For this year’s edition of Customers’ Picks, we’re going through the best-reviewed basics of 2019. From MLBB lipsticks to health-boosting supplements, these are the products that any beauty and wellness junkie would be lost without.
To some, putting on moisturizer might not seem like a big deal. (It’s basically lotion for your face—right?) But for others, finding the perfect hydrator can make a world of a difference. Maybe it’s the way it feels (weightless, soothing, gentle). Maybe it keeps breakouts at bay. And maybe, it’ll go the extra mile to do all that and more.

…Which is exactly what we’re about for the 7th episode of our Customers’ Picks series. Ahead, catch the ultimate collection of the top 20 moisturizers you’ve absolutely been loving for the past year. Whether it’s for skin that’s prone to acne, dry and parched, red and sensitive, or too oily for your liking, we’re positive you’ll find one that’ll bless yours with the TLC it deserves. Let’s get to it!

Some By Mi V10 Vitamin Tone-Up Cream, now on sale at P890 (limited time only)
Queeny, 41: “I’ve been using this product day and night for two weeks. During the morning, I apply it after a serum and before a sunblock cream. At night, I oftentimes apply it after a mask sheet. I really does brighten your skin as well as moisturize it. Even if there are days that I only have 4 hours of sleep, my skin does not look dull and tired. As for its anti-wrinkle claim, I can say that it works because people keep guessing my age. This product deserve 5 stars. I will purchase this product again.”

Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Tube (250ml), P295
Hannah, 31: “This is going to be my 2nd purchase! My skin is crazyyyy sensitive and so I’ve gone through more than a dozen moisturizers in my life. All of them failed me by making my skin break out. THIS one, though, makes my skin more supple, does not leave me with acne, does not feel heavy, “dries” itself in less than a minute so I can put on my sunscreen after, does not clash with my sunscreen, and is just so soothing to the skin.”

Esfolio Snow Whitening Cream, P369
Camille, 25: “This moisturizer is exactly what I need for my morning routine. It’s perfect for daily commute going to work because it does not feel too greasy and sticky. It’s very light on the skin and is easily absorbed upon application. This is perfect if you’re the type who’s not heavy with their makeup and wants to achieve this light and natural glowing look everyday. Will definitely reorder when I finish using my first tube container. 😊”

Muriel, 30: “Soothes skin really well. The product is very light on the skin. It is mild and gentle which makes it an all-around miracle worker. You can even use this product for kids, that’s how gentle this product is. Good for sunburns and even for insect bites. One tub goes a long a way, around three to four months if being used daily.”

Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream (60ml), now on sale at P1,539 (limited time only)
Available in different sizes.

Maree, 32: “Holy Grail! I can’t imagine my skin care routine without this. I have been using it for a year and it saved my skin from all the pain I might have experienced. The consistency is slightly thick but I love the blue color of this cream. I’ve used it for every occasion my face ended up red and stinging (like after eyebrow plucking, nose stripping or a really strong clay mask), it works within minutes. I even apply it when I can feel that a pimple is trying to come out but not really and it’s just painful and red, and when I wake up in the morning it’s gone. I love it and I thank BeautyMNL for having it!”

The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel Tube, P250
Marah, 24: ““Mauubos ko na tong product na to. Nabili ko siya last year. Eto yung ginagamit kong moisturizer sa umaga since masarap siya sa feeling yung hindi malagkit or oily sa face unlike yung ibang moisturizer na nakakailang gamitin sa umaga bago pumasok sa work. Hiyang ko din tong product na to. Hindi ako nagkaroon ng breakout yung walang mahapding feeling sa mukha. […] Super love ko yung mga products ng tfs and this is one of my favorites! 😍”

Jonalyn, 27: “Used this on my face as moisturizer. My skin was left glowing all day. The formula is not sticky and is quickly absorbed by the skin. I even used this once on my arms nung naubusan ako ng lotion! Haha! And, it did not fail me. This was even used by my husband after his hand was burned and kahit sya na picky, napa bilib din ng soothing properties nito. And to top this all, mura pa! Definitely recommendable!”

Strip It Aloe Vera Gel (50ml), P159
Available in different sizes.

Mara, 25: “I bought this product to match with the sugaring wax kasi I’ve watch sa mga vlogs na mas okay raw maglagay neto to soothe the redness after waxing. So far di naman ako binigo nang product na ‘to kasi super mild, effective and ang bango nung scent. I even tried this on my face and gusto ko yung watery-consistency niya dahil easily absorbed by my skin, hindi rin sticky sa feeling. All in all pasado sakin ang product na ‘to. Pasok sa budget, efficient gamitin and facts talafa yung ma claim. Will definitely purchase again.”

The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel, P250
Kim, 22: “My skin is as dry as a desert, so it’s prone to break outs and irritation. Ever since i started using this aloe vera gel, I barely get any huge pimples now, even during red days! All i had to do was to use it after washing my face and before putting on moisturizer in the morning and in the night. I also use it as a sleeping mask so i wake up with hydrated, juicy-looking skin. […] It’s definitely worth the price!”

Baroness Snail Soothing Gel, P199
Darlyn, 31: “Baroness’ Snail Soothing Gel is superb! It smells good. It dries fast and makes my skin soft and supple. Even my daughter loves it, she actually uses it everyday and emptied my tub in just two weeks 😅😓. Now she’s asking me to buy another one 😂. Among other brands of snail soothing gel in the market na nabili at na-try namin, this is considerably the best. ❤️”

Famida, 24: “If you wanna achieve glass skin, I think this is one of the best products you can buy on BMNL. 😭 I use it at night after toner and before my midnight serum. I’ve been using this for 2 months now and I really saw the difference. Even my fiancée said my skin looks so clear, soft, and overall “amazing”. The packaging is hygienic + I really love the smell! Seriously, this is my new holy grail. And it doesn’t run out fast too! Super sulit!”

Sugnyeo, 34: “[…]When I discovered Esfolio snail gel, my remaining aloe gel was forgotten. I totally love the mild scent of this. When it comes to moisturizing my skin, it works amazing. I have combination skin and this totally balances it. I never had breakouts since I started using it and it brightens my skin too. And for it’s price? It’s totally worth it.”

Queennie, 22: “If you want a supple and dewy skin, this is the go-to product! Works so well on my sensitive skin. No side effects like breakouts. It just leaves my skin fresh and glowing. Would def recommend this to all girls who have sensitive skin and have difficulties finding products na hiyang sa skin nila. It’s true to its label, it’s all-in-one talaga. You can have moisturizer, spa mask, essence, etc in just one tub plus it’s very worth the value for money! Will def order this again!”

Cenvi, 24: “When I had a really bad break out due to stress and eating problems, this was my life saver. After cleansing my face, I applied this product and went to sleep, so upon the next day, I noticed that the bumps were at a minimum. It also made my skin look hydrated. I gave the other one to my Mom since I bought this under a buy 1 take 1 promo, she’s really happy about it cos it helps her calm in her sleep and made her skin look healthy and glowy. The Face Shop never fails to amaze me.”

Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer, P250
Angeli, 32: “I’ve tried a looooooot of moisturizers, but this still remains to be the most reliable! I use different moisturizers/oils every now and then, but I still have this on back up. It has so far been the most lightweight and fast absorbing. It’s perfect for everyday use even on hot or busy days since it doesn’t get sticky. It also doesn’t get in the way of make up. The effect may be subtle, but really substantial. A little goes a long way. A tube usually lasts me 3 months, minimum. I recommend this as a basic part of anyone’s kikay kit :)”

Audrey, 28: “After years of searching […], I finally found products that work for me! I’ve been using the Essential Power Skin Moisture (with Essential Skin Refiner) for a month now (along with the Hydro Kit) and my face has found its natural glow! The changes are visible enough that even my workmates noticed it! I still get a few bumps from time to time since I have hormonal issues but not as GRABE as it was before I used Laneige products. […] Workmates have been asking me what products I use and I proudly promote this set of products from Laneige. […]”
