1. Garnier Micellar Water + Argan Oil (400ml), now on sale at P314 (limited time only)
“This new variant is definitely my favorite. It’s the most effective one for make-up and dirt removal, hence, the higher price. I also love the smell. It’s subtle and very aromatic. It has oil content yet it does not feel oily at all. I use this instantly when I arrive home to remove my make up with a reusable cloth pad then I’ll proceed with my facial cleanser. It’s so comfortable and easy to use.” - Christine, 30, Dry Skin

2. Maybelline Lash Sensational Big Eyes Bloom Mascara, P399
“One of the best drugstore mascaras I swear by. It cleanly makes my lashes longer while adding volume. It doesn’t give you that ‘falsies’ look, but it leaves you with naturally long and thick lashes instead. It withstood all the crying I did when I found out my ex was cheating on me so I know it is waterproof. Plus, it can stand the test of time, stress, and even my law school woes. LOL.” - Sarah, 24, Combination Skin

3. Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch (24 Patches), P200
“My skin is oily and acne prone, and I tend to get instant breakouts when I forget to wash my face in the evening. But this is like magic. It reduces the red spots and flattens those bumpy pimples. I like the fact that it blends well with skin and most people won’t even notice that I’m wearing one. I recommended this to a friend at work and it worked for her breakouts, too. This is one of my favorite skincare purchases.” - Niguel, 31, Oily Skin

4. Neogen Joan Vita Duo Cream, P2,000
“Been using this product for a week and so far I love how this feels on my skin. It absorbs quickly and has helped with evening and brightening my skin tone while making my skin feel soft and smooth. I especially love the night gel because of how it leaves a beautiful healthy glow. The light lavender scent is relaxing. I will definitely repurchase this product.” - Bambi, 27, Sensitive Skin

5. Leiania House of Beauty TeaFresh Organic Face Oil Blotting Paper, P135
“I’m glad I came across this product here, it was on sale then and just wanted to try a different oil control film. But with how it works for me I don’t mind repurchasing on full price. It gives you that powder fresh effect, the paper doesn’t stick to your face and even if you get really oily it doesn’t tear unlike the others I’ve used in the past. I like that it’s organic, I’m not worried even if I use it a few times a day.” Joan, 31, Combination Skin

6. Rorec Honey Natural Skin Care Mask, now on sale at P29 (limited time only)
“I consider myself a good judge of facial masks and this is underrated! For the price and the quality it delivers? My god, it rivals my favorite Esfolio masks! And that’s saying something! Each variant is guaranteed to give you glowy and supple skin! Def must have and hoard.” - Nabi, 22, Oily Skin

7. Maybelline Volum’ Express Magnum Big Shot Waterproof Black Mascara, P399
“Been using this product for over a year and this will be my third tube. I just love it so much because I’ve been getting a lot of compliments from my friends asking if I have falsies or eyeliner on because IT’S THAT GOOD! It makes my lashes look thick and amazing. I even use it to set my eyebrows so it really is worth every cent.” - Anna, 20, Normal Skin

8. Wildleaf Hibiscus Face Cream, P990
“I was skeptic at first, but my golly how lightweight this was. It was so nourishing for my skin and it smelled unbelievably good. It’s like aromatherapy but in an organic way that I got so addicted to it. No doubt I will be purchasing again.” - Kyllah, 23, Sensitive Skin

9. Rorec Aloe Vera Natural Skin Care Mask, now on sale at P21 (limited time only)
“I bought a TON of these when they went on sale for P19! I love everything about it— the smell, the cool feeling, and let me tell you, they work wonders for my skin! When I use these at night, the bumps on my forehead would flatten by morning. It doesn’t leave that icky feeling after you use it, and I also use the leftover essence on parts of my body that need a little bit of moisture, like my elbows and knees.” - Ara, 16, Oily Skin
