It seems another month is at our door! And not just any month, mind you, but September: the beginning of the ‘Bers. In true Filipino fashion, this marks the reappearance of Christmas songs, parols, and of course, holiday wishlists. To give you a head start on your shopping, here are the 10 giftable products that made it to this week’s Top Reviews! Each one has a five-star rating, just sayin’.

1. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner, now on sale at P800 (limited time only)
“I’ve been using this toner for a month now, along with the super volcanic clay mask and foam cleanser, and oh wow – that feeling when all those minute holes (aka pores, hahaha) on your face have been freed from impurities is so refreshing!!!! I also noticed my skin looks clear after using this toner and it’s so gentle. I highly recommend this toner for those with sensitive skin. No stingy, itchy, drying effect whatsoever. You get that clean and soft skin after toning with this product. Oh and yes! It smells so nice! So refreshing! A bit pricey, but as they say, you get what you pay for, right? Will definitely repurchase once I finish my first bottle, which I think will last me until next year considering the volume of this product. This also helped me with oil control.” - Joy

2. L’Oreal Paris Infallible 10HR Lipstick, P500
“This is a great long-lasting lipstick. Although it has a satin finish, it truly holds up to its name - will not budge, smudge, or smear off easily. The shade Forever Frappe is a beautiful, brownish color with a hint of red that is suitable for both day and night. It doesn’t dry out your lips and it is so easily to apply. It’s not cheap for a drugstore brand, but the price is cheap considering the quality.” - Cae

3. Dewytree Tea Tree Powder in Toner, P989
“I like trying out new toners because I am constantly in search for one which will address my current skin issues, and I must say that my search is done because I am in love with this one. It does wonders for the skin, as it removes dirt effectively and keeps oil at bay; all done while protecting sensitive skin and providing a fresh scent, which I love. With this product, I can see my skin improve (less breakouts) in as little as two weeks of use. I would have to say that I love it more than COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner, which does remove dirt but has a slower effect in lessening breakouts and Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner, which is just as good for sensitive skin but does not seem to be as effective for me in reducing breakouts.” – Gracie

4. Dearberry Miss Monalisa Brow Pencil, now on sale at P131 (limited time only)
“I am an avid user of these products since the first time I’ve used it. I am pretty amazed by its quality. It enhances the shape of my brows and easily blends with its spoolie. I chose Choco Brown and this shade perfectly blends with my dark brown hair. This product is also very affordable, and I am happy for it because it’s worth it. I will try Coffee Brown next time.” - Aimee

5. Beauty Bakery Charcoal + Clay Scrub Mask, P199
“Yes! You’ve read it right! MIRACLE SCRUB indeed. I’ve tried several facial scrubs in the market but this one sent me to heaven. Good thing I didn’t become skeptic about Beauty Bakery’s Charcoal and Clay Scrub+ Mask. I love organic skin care products and I fell in love the first time I used it together with the Witch Hazel Facial Mist. My love for this product is growing strong! Haha yes, I really mean it! It leaves no trace of dirt and is very refreshing as it detoxifies my skin by removing the sebum and toxins from my face. I have oily and sensitive skin and it didn’t break me out! That’s a 6/5 stars grade! Haha yay! It really keeps the oiliness of my face at bay and I can’t think of any more words to describe how I’m so amazed with this product! Affordable and effective local beauty skin care products from Beauty Bakery win!” - Ciele

6. V&M Naturals Witch Hazel Toner, P335
“I’ve been suffering from acne weeks ago until my sister bought this product. I’ve used a lot of acne toners since then, but this one’s my fav. (Plus, it’s organic!) It did not cause further breakouts, rather it reduced, and helped them heal faster and diminish those pimple blemishes. It also removes dirt and reduces oiliness. Helps with dullness, too. For the scent, it smells nice. My acne’s gone but i will continue using this toner for acne prevention.” - Ruth

7. Liese Creamy Bubble Color, P449
Very easy to apply, just need to follow the instructions. My hair felt soft and it smelled nice, too. Marshmallow brown was the color I used and it’s just amaaaazing! My friends thought I went to the salon and they were surprised when I told them I colored my hair myself. Waaaay better than getting hair colored at the salon in terms of result and price. Hope you stock up on the new shades bec I would love to try them. Will definitely repurchase!!!” - Jedd

8. Human Nature Moisturizer with Lily (100ml), P300
“First of all, this smells heavenly! It’s super light and gentle on the skin. It’s also quite nourishing. It did help my skin clear up and I had hardly any major breakouts when I was using this. It’s great for someone living in Manila where the air isn’t as dry as colder places so the formulation really is for Filipinas and the local weather. If you’re looking for a light moisturizer to use during the daytime, this could be the product for you. It doesn’t leave you oily and doesn’t feel heavy under your makeup.” - Angela

9. Benton Snail Bee Content Essence, P900
“I’m a newbie with regards to skincare routines. I just read an article about the 10-steps Korean skincare and gave it a try. At first, I’m a bit confused with “essence” as the heart of Korean skincare. So I researched about it, and Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence is always popping out. I decided to give it a try and fell in love with it easily. It’s good for my sensitive skin, it doesn’t irritate my skin and heal my acne breakouts faster. It may seem a bit small for 60ml, but 1-2 pumps can already cover your whole face. Two-thumbs up for this product.” - Kristian

10. Brush Work 6-Piece Mermaid Tail Brush Set, P899
“I love these brushes! I use them everyday, particularly the fluffier powder and blush brushes. Aside from being super cute, these brushes are also great at carrying out their respective tasks. The bristles are soft, dense, and can deposit and blend product well. To be honest, I only bought these because I love mermaids and unicorns, and these looked really cute! But aside from the unique design, function-wise, these brushes are worth the money.” - Samantha
