Not all hyped-up products are life-changing. But there are some out there that are indeed worthy of their reputation. To shed light on these items, we’re counting on our loyal customers to help us out. In this week’s Top Reviews, check out these 5-star items that earned their cult-status by way of trial-and-error. Scroll!

1. Cloud Cosmetics Baby Pores, P499 “I’m in love! I use it as my daytime cream since it has SPF and it’s super mattifying. It’s like a powder that leaves a subtle white-beigey tint that looks fresh and makes my skin look dewy-not-oily. At first I found it kinda pricey for 15ml, but then I realized a little goes a long way! Been using this for almost 2 months now. Will definitely hoard!” – Justine

2. Ushas Cosmetics Smooth Blush Contour Stick, P199 “I got attracted to this because it’s super cute. Aside from being handy, I love how this gives a natural pop of color to my cheeks and lips. It’s very easy to blend. I use my fingers. But if I want a more “Korean” blush, I put three dots on my face and blend it with a silisponge. Great buy!” – Melinda

3. Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel, P485 “I have very sensitive skin, especially when it comes to sunscreen formulations. This one doesn’t make my skin react, it’s so comfortable to wear and even feels almost moisturizing. It layers well under makeup and won’t leave a white cast or give flash back. This particular sunscreen comes with quite a lot of product compared to others, even from Biore, which makes it really great value as well.” – Gabbie

4. Vegetari Healthy Bites Seacharon, P200 “Let me enumerate what’s great about this snack (aside from the health benefits): One, it’s a large bag and has A LOT of food inside. So, you definitely get what you pay for. Two, it’s super yummy and crunchy! At hindi nakakasawa. It doesn’t have a bad after taste and each bite is just so GOOD. I’m definitely buying more of this in the very near future. Good job, Vegetari Healthy Bites!” – Karen

5. Heimish All Clean Balm, P975 “I will continue buying this again and again. No doubt one of my favorite finds from 2017. Melts the make-up and excess oil right off of your skin without leaving it dry or stripping it of its moisture. I don’t even have to use Micellar Water anymore when I use this. A+!!! Definitely worth the money!” – Ginger
