Great for sensitive skin.” – Denise

2. ColourPop I Think I Love You Palette, now on sale at P1,150 (limited time only) “I love love love this palette! Very happy this is available here on BeautyMNL making it much easier for me to purchase. This has the best set of colors and again, it is highly pigmented! The colors offered by this can be used for events and for everyday use! Very versatile!” – Laumik

3. Human Nature Clarifying Shampoo (495ml), P320 “This has always been my go-to clarifying shampoo. It really cleanses the hair and scalp without drying it. I use this twice a week and my hair actually feels lighter after. The scent is very subtle yet refreshing. I also use this especially on days when my hair absorbs those ‘fried food ‘ smells from restaurants and also smoke from pollution. So will I repurchase? Most definitely!!” - April

4. Beauty Bakery Witch Hazel + Tea Tree Cream, P320 “After so many products and money spent, I can’t believe I will find my perfect match with a much lesser price! This is not sticky at all, easily absorbed by my skin, and smells so good! Like lemon frosting. :) When this lovely face cream arrived, I used it immediately and it made my skin immediately soft and hydrated. Not shiny or dewy, just healthy looking with no dry patches haha! And for 50g, this will last for months! You just need a little amount because it glides smoothly. Sulit diba? Thanks, Beauty Bakery!” – Gretchen

5. Brush Work Velcro Hair Clip, now on sale at P70 (limited time only) “During my pre-wedding preps, my make-up artist used these velcro hair clips on me to keep my hair away from my face. I got so curious that I also bought a few pieces for myself. When ever I prepare in the morning, these things save my life. I have a lot of baby hair and I am happy that I found these to keep them in place. Bobby pins never worked for me before as I have very thin and soft hair. These things are really great because they work well both on dry or wet hair.” – Kris

6. Banila Co. Prime Primer Finish Powder, P1,090 “Best for your T-Zone as it instantly mattifies your skin. Best used after your favorite BB/CC Creams or foundations as a finishing powder. I use this whenever I have to go out in the sun as this really holds my makeup very well and by experience, my makeup held on to my very oily face for 4 straight hours! Unbelieveable! What I love is the velvety-smooth feeling afterwards, and by the way, you would think that this is very tiny tub but this little tiny thing goes a long way! Worth the splurge, ladies!” - Strawberry

7. The Superfood Grocer Raw Cacao Nibs 1/2 lb., P225 “This is so good! Been wanting to try Superfood Grocer products for quite a while and stumbled upon this here. Can’t stop munching on these on its own, can’t wait to try it on smoothies! Great way to curb my sweet tooth cravings, I think I just found my new favorite snack. Yay!” – Eunice

8. Novo Cosmetics Two Tone Lipstick, now on sale at P399 (limited time only) “The application looks really nice on my lips! I love how the lipstick produces a color gradient since the dark part is more pigmented and other part is more glossy. The look is just what I was looking for. The price is also just right for when you want to try a trend but don’t want to spend too much on something that you’re not sure is going to work for you. But, this one works for me! It’s lovely! Try it!” – Joan

9. V&M Naturals Underarmour, P555 “I got Acai+Mulberry and I don’t regret one bit purchasing it! It has the nicest fresh and slightly sweet scent. It’s probably the nicest smelling deo I’ve ever had. I apply 1.5 pumps per underarm and it leaves me smelling great the whole day. Unfortunately it’s not an antiperspirant so it might not be too friendly to heavy sweaters or on summer days. Will continue using this while the weather is cool but will probably switch to a stronger deo once it gets really hot. Overall, this is a great find.” – Lesley

10. Pixi by Petra Black Lacquer Lash Primer, P790 “I never knew a primer could work wonders! I have sparse eyelashes and droopy eyes. I take time in bringing them to life! Liner, curler and mascara are very essential to me. When I saw this product, I decided I’ll give it a try. And I’m impressed! It delivers! It does what it says it’s supposed to do. My lashes look fuller, longer, blacker and more alive. When I’m in a hurry, I don’t use mascara anymore. Impressive how a primer can work this way! It does not only prep, it definitely does more! With this wonder tube, I save time and space in my kit! Im a fan!” – Mae
