Herbs of the Earth Melatonin+ Sleep Faster & Longer (50 Chewable Tablets), now on sale at P900 (limited time only)

Jasmine, 21: “I bought these because I was super jetlagged from traveling to Canada and back.

Overall, after a week of drinking these tablets, I was back to my regular sleep schedule.”

Moon Juice Dream Dust Sachet (3g), P216
Kelly, 24: “I wasn’t sure that this would work because I was very skeptical about it. I decided to get just a sachet to see the effect before committing to a full size. And oh my gosh, it works SO WELL. I didn’t feel the effect immediately but when I closed my eyes, I dozed off so easily and I woke up 7 hours later. I had the deepest sleep ever in MONTHS. The taste is kind of strong, and the smell too, but you get used to it after awhile. I mixed it in with hot chocolate, and it made it thicker. I definitely need to get the full size now. I definitely recommend this to my fellow graveyard shift workers.”

Philippine Pure Cayenne Capsules (150 Capsules), on sale at P450 (limited time only)
Jem, 26: “I use this twice a day but I only take 1 capsule per meal. I tried taking two, as recommended, but even with meals it still made my stomach feel uncomfortable. 1 capsule is enough for me. Whenever I drink this I feel like I have more energy when I hit the gym. Circuit training is hella exhausting but whenever I take this, I sweat more than the usual [and] I also have more energy in store. I also noticed that it de-bloats my stomach and even after a full meal, I don’t feel as bad as when I don’t take it. [I] would recommend as it’s super affordable naman! Locally made pa.”

Marie, 28: “[I’ve] been a melatonin user when I was in college years ago due to intense study sessions. I have to get REM sleep even if it’s just for a short period. Recently, [I] went back to using melatonin as I’ve been back at the gym. My workouts are usually scheduled at night, which keeps me up all night! I pop a capsule of this an hour or 30 minutes before bedtime and it knocks out the adrenaline caused by my night workouts! [I] will surely buy this again when it runs out. Plus points for the affordable price!”

Alyssa, 20: “I couldn’t live without this anymore! Super thankful because my mom got to discover this! It helped me regulate my period by regularly taking 1-2 soft gels per day. I have also read a lot of blogs and articles about this and how it could help women who suffer from irregular menstruation. Thankfully, naging regular na talaga ako.

LivStore Greened Happy Inhaler, P130

Kristian, 34: “This is super good for giving you a little boost to your day! If I’m really tired when I wake up, I use it when I wake up. It has a a refreshing effect in your nasal passage, which helps when your nose is clogged! I get allergies a lot and it’s been cold lately so my nose gets stuffy. I use this and it does help clear my nose a bit. I just love the citrusy smell. It says it can last up to 3 months but I have one that I used at an event around 7 months ago and it still works. The scent is just a little more faint. I find it most effective when you breathe in slowly! Will buy again.”

LivStore Greened Sleep Inhaler, P130
Kristian, 34: “I recently came across this from a coworker who told me she highly suggested it. Of course I had to see what the buzz was on this and now I know why. At first I was expecting it to be like the regular nasal inhalers but I was proven wrong. This is so relaxing and calming! Well I got these last year and I’ve been obsessed ever since! I usually use it when I’m feeling stressed and can’t sleep. I make sure I’m always carrying it around, it’s small enough to fit in your pocket or even a clutch. Plus I always love the smell of lavender. Overall I’m happy with the product and will be purchasing this again!”
