We hear you: the V&M Naturals CPC+G Oil is pure, uncomplicated skincare at its finest. Composed only of four “miracle” ingredients and literally nothing else, this oil blend is able to transform dull, blemished skin much better than its fussier counterparts.
It’s so good, our customers can’t stop singing its praises (we’ve got 5-star ratings across 350+ reviews now!) and hoarding stock whenever they can. Unfortunately, its popularity means we can’t always restock fast enough—spelling trouble for anyone in need of its unique brand of skin-healing.

If you’re among the unlucky few who can never seem to get their hands on this, we’ve got some good news! You’ve got options. These five alternatives won’t work exactly the same, but they come pretty darn close: restoring radiance, alleviating acne, and soothing sensitivities with every drop. In a pinch, these subs are good to go!

1. Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Whitening Ampoule, P798

Still chasing those glass skin dreams? Maybe this is just what your routine needs. Already a five-star favorite among our customers, this serum is formulated with niacinamide and grape callus extract to reveal your smoothest, most luminous skin yet.

2. CosRX Mela 14 White Ampule, P1,350

A cult fave in its own right, this gel-type Korean ampule is infused with apple water for deep hydration and nourishment. The result? A radiant, lustrous complexion on the road to swift recovery from hyper-pigmentation.

3. Wildleaf Vitamin C Serum, P1,190

If you love the CPC+G oil for how quickly it disappears dark spots and acne scars, wait ‘til you hear about vitamin C. On its own, it’s already a powerful illuminator and antioxidant. But when coupled with niacinamide, it becomes an all-in-one fix for blemishes during and after a bad breakout.

4. The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%, P800

Here’s a formulation with glow-boosting powers that are beyond ordinary. Made with a 10% concentration of high-purity azelaic acid, it also effectively evens out skin texture, minimizes discoloration, and banishes breakouts. And if you’re strict about shopping green, it’s vegan and cruelty-free, too!

5. Hello Gorgeous Unicorn Elixir (15ml), P380

For an option that’s closer to the original’s ultra affordable price point, this magical oil is a bingo. Like the CPC+G, it’s also a potent blend of lightweight, skin-nurturing oils that absorb into the skin to brighten and heal damaged complexions. All that and it’s still budget-friendly? Believe it!
