1. Nippon Esthetic Solutions Patting Cotton, now on sale at P200 “I use this to remove makeup and apply toner. The size is just right. What I like about it best is that it cotton doesn’t fall apart on you. It doesn’t tear even when drenched. It’s not super soft but it’s soft enough for my sensitive skin. I also like the packaging. It’s sturdy and you are able to “lock” it closed. It’s more hygienic that way.” – Sarah

2. Leaders InSolution Snail Therapy Skin Clinic, P198 “I’ve recently started using skincare products with snail mucin as its main ingredient and I’ve been loving it! To maximize its effect, I bought this as a twice a month treatment and it really makes me love this because it amplifies the effects of my other products. This serves as a treatment and maintenance to boost all my snail products. I love how this makes my skin soft and really opens up my skin to receive/suck all the other products I’m applying.” – Denise

And since it’s in flat packaging, its so easy to take with you. This is a must have in your make-up arsenal!” – Tata

4. Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain, P575 “This balm stain is amazing! I got it in Honey Douce, which I think is good for night and day. Since I have started using the balm stain a couple of months ago, I have started to neglect my other lipsticks and lip balms. This is your go-to product if you’re always on-the-run as it is easy to apply, it combines two products, and it leaves you not worrying much about retouching as the stain actually lasts– even after eating and drinking. More importantly, this balm stain doesn’t leave your lips dry! I usually don’t spend more than 500pesos on lippies but I would define this product as a good investment.” – Giancarla

5. Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen, P740 “I’m so glad Pixi didn’t lie about the waterproof part. I went on a beach trip with my friends and I was using this. I applied this before going out of the house and it took us two hours to get there but it was still on my lids. When I finally swam, I didn’t care about it because I thought it was already erased. I was so surprised when I went to the bathroom and it really was still on my eyelids!” – Anika

6. Bioré Cleansing Oil Facial Sheets, P99 “I usually use sunflower oil, baby oil, or moringa oil to remove my waterproof eye makeup, which usually takes me several passes to get the makeup off completely, not to mention I get blurry vision afterwards due to the oil getting in my eyes. When I tried this one, to be honest, I was a bit doubtful if it was going to be effective at all since it just looks like your regular wet wipes to me. But lo and behold, it wiped off every bit of the waterproof mascara and eye liner I had on, plus it doesn’t leave your face oily at all! It actually feels as if you’ve just washed your face fresh, no kidding! It’s so convenient to carry around, so I always store one pack in my bag.” – Mary

7. Aveeno Moisturizing Bar, P165 “I LOVE this soap! I always make sure to buy two whenever I get the chance because I never want to run out of it. There are days when I’m too lazy to use a body wash and loofah, so this is just perfect. It exfoliates very gently, but just enough that it’s gotten all the gunk of the day off my body. It leaves my skin soft and smooth, and it smells delightful. Before I established a skincare routine, I would also use this on my face and absolutely loved how it felt afterwards. It’s gentle and moisturising for both my face and body. One tip I’ve learned is to keep it away from water if you aren’t using it; that is, put it in a soap dish with holes so it can “dry” in between showers. Otherwise, I find that it tends to sort of melt, wasting precious product and literally washing money down the drain (it is admittedly a little pricey for a bar of soap). Nevertheless, I see myself using this soap for years to come!” – Dana

8. Vidal Sassoon Color Care Shampoo, P192 “My go-to shampoo whenever I have my hair colored. I don’t know what’s with this product but I’ve noticed my hair color is at its most intense, almost amplifying the color and making it more beautiful. Also, this makes my hair color last longer and my hair looks healthier considering I’ve subjected my hair into a series of chemical treatments. This is a great product!” – Denise

9. Nuxe Paris Lip Moisturizing Stick, P350 “My lips love this balm. I’ve tried a great number of balms which tend to disappoint as most of them leave a petroleum-jelly-like texture on my lips as if I just downed oil. This product has a semi matte finish and feels divine on the lips. It also has a delicate scent upon initial application. It instantly soothes chapped lips at a reasonable price.” – Margaret

10. Eye of Horus Ultimate Brow Define, P950 “I was actually looking the perfect brow liner and I found it with Eye of Horus! The slim tip makes it easy to define and fill my eye brows. It also has it’s own spoolie on the other end for smudging and blending. It also gives the right color and lasts all day long. It’s recommended for beginners because it’s easy to use and gives a natural-looking defined brows.” – Cai
