Every day, we get questions from our customers about all things beauty. It could be anything, from which products we personally swear by to exactly how to use them for best results. So this week, the BeautyMNL Editors are answering a few inquiries that came in through the mail. By that, of course, we mean our email: sos@beautymnl.com. There’s no Q too big or too small, too strange or too simplistic, so keep ‘em coming, beautiful!


Anabella: “Can you recommend a good concealer under P500?”
ANSWER: An opaque brightening concealer always comes in handy when you’re breaking out or lacking beauty sleep. The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer provides medium coverage that builds up to full. While many liquid concealers tend to cake or crease, this light-as-air formula does the opposite. It effectively hides small zits and dark circles without weighing heavily on the skin. Only P299!
For camouflaging major blemishes, you’ll need something thicker. The Imagic Pro-5 Camouflage Cream Palette contains an assortment of color-correcting creams. These concealers erase redness, counteract sallowness, brighten dark circles, and cancel out grey tones. You name it, they do it—and for only P499.

Sylvie: “What skincare product do you recommend for my blemishes? My skin type is sensitive.”
ANSWER: Since sensitive skin is prone to irritation, it’s easily triggered by the acids in most anti-acne treatments. The trick is to avoid those harsh ingredients, which include salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Instead, look for a solution made with gentle, more natural ingredients, like snail mucin and witch hazel. These formulas have soothing benefits on top of their anti-acne properties. So, not only do they clear pimples, they do so without causing an allergic reaction.
Snail mucin is a godsend for sensitive skin. Its powerful regenerative properties boost the healing process of pimples. This allows blemishes to shrink faster and leaves behind less visible damage. On the other hand, Witch hazel extract works as a natural astringent. It eliminates acne-causing bacteria and prevents future pimples from cropping up.

Now, if you’re looking for an instant fix, introduce pimple patches into your routine. These are the cure when preventive measures prove too weak for your pimples. Pimple patches, like the ones by COSRX, suck out all the gunk in active pimples to flatten those bumps. Miraculous on all skin types!
