COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser, P540 Joy, 20: “This is seriously the best facial wash. One time, I got 2-3 bumps on my face.

Human Nature Balancing Facial Wash (200ml), P200 Chenyl, 31: “In action, it’s an excellent second cleanser that washes off any residue from my first oil cleanse. It smells citrusy and refreshing, and it doesn’t make my skin feel tight and dry post-cleanse. I’ve just finished the small bottle of this, will definitely place an order for the larger bottle.”

Be Organic Bath & Body Age-Defying Argan Oil Foaming Face Wash (60mL), P165 Ivanna, 26: “I bought this out of the blue due to the sale promo and the rave reviews. And it lived up to its claims, truly liquid gold for the skin. Most gentle facial cleanser doesnt get the job done due to its gentle properties, so this really took me by surprise. It gets the job done, removes all traces of makeup while being gentle at the same time.”

Esfolio Pure Skin Green Tea Facial Cleansing Tissue, now on sale at P119 (limited time only) Monica, 30: “I have used this first on my lips and it immediately removed most of the traces of lipstick in one swipe. It is an effective eye makeup remover as well. I was surprised by the amount of liquid in every wipe as it is packed with more liquid than the other makeup wipes that I have tried considering the price point of this product.”

Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Cleansing Water Pink (400ml), now on sale at P212 (limited time only) Danice, 21: “This is the best micellar water that I have tried in my life. Does not leave your face feeling sticky after applying, removes make up in a swipe and does not smell chemical-y. I tried a lot of other micellar waters from other brands but i find myself coming back to this.”

Skin Genie Yay-ger! Pore Refining Bar, P150 Nicole, 21: “This soap is 100% effective at minimizing pores. You can literally see the difference after every use! Be warned that it can sting, though, and that it dries your skin a little. Make sure to moisturize after! I cut my bar into six, and I use this soap maybe thrice a week, so I can see one bar lasting me for maybe more than three months.”

Neogen Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser, P800 Vicky, 23: “This product got me and removed all my worries away because it has natural ingredients AND it’s GREEN TEA. And it’s true! I don’t usually get breakouts anymore (except if I have monthly period) and it is not drying, in fact, it’s hydrating to the skin. I like massaging this cleanser around my eyes also, I feel like it removes the tiredness. One pump does wonders already.”

Esfolio Aloe Vera Soothing Cleansing Foam, now on sale at P245 (limited time only) Claire, 21: “I purchased this out of curiosity and I already bought their snail moisture gel, which I totally love, and the changes are AMAZING. Before, I have a really oily skin and I would usually have pimples before my mens and now, I don’t even need to monitor my face for excessive oil and I rarely have pimples.”
