While beauty is often about the glitz ‘n’ glamour, a little practicality goes a long, long way. This rings especially true for travel-friendly products. Your essentials should make your day-to-day life easier—not add to the hassle. For today’s Top Reviews, we’re all praise for staples that beautify and simplify at once. Snag these 10 top-rated gems for a dummy-proof kit even super-newbies can use!

1. Zenutrients Invigorating Epsom Salt with Coffee & Vanilla, P125 “If you are under a lot of stress or just want to pamper yourself, you need this in your life! I’ve used this in my tub, as a foot soak, and also as a foot scrub and all tries worked perfect for me! Love the relaxing scent and how this epsom salt made my skin feel after use. Definitely a good gift idea for busy bees out there too! Try this even if you do not have a tub! It is worth it!” – Dianne

2. Davines Oi / Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion, now on sale at P837 (limited time only) “I got Permanent Blowout last month and it made my hair so dry and tangles all the time. This hair oil saved me. It made my hair tangle-free, frizz-free, softer and shinier without making it greasy. It is so lightweight that no one will notice that you applied oil on your hair. I will buy this again even if it’s not on sale. Expensive yet will cut salon expenses because this product is really effective!” – Czerina

3. e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit, P270 “My first powder brow product. Although the wax hardened up much quicker than I preferred, it’s something pretty easy to remedy with a bit of heat. The color is just right to get those soft but fuller brows. If you’re into the carved Instagram brows, this might not be for you. An overall great, wearable starter set.” – Stephanie

4. Bioré UV Perfect Face Milk SPF50+ PA++++, P380 “So, just like every student in Manila, I tend to go out and eat in the afternoon and experience the HOT and HUMID weather that makes my face/skin feel sticky, sweaty, and oily. This product is a miracle. It says what it offers, you pay for what you get. I really enjoy and appreciate the product and how it offers SPF 50! Great for the sunny weather in the PH! I still wish it was in a bigger bottle, but so far… AMAZING!” – Crystal

5. Sterlite Storage Tray, P79 “I’ve recently become addicted to these little storage trays and cubes and drawers and what not, because it’s a less inexpensive way to keep clutter in one place **(although it’s still clutter, at least it’s a more presentable container. These little Sterilite trays do the trick. I think I ordered a couple in almost every size. They **fit in my shelves perfectly, and they’re relatively inexpensive too. I love the size of this regular tray, and I use them to fit my skin care lotions and toners and what not that have wide bottoms. YAY for storage!” – Janice

6. Dove Dove Advanced Hair Series Shampoo Pure Care Dry Oil, P290 “I ordered this shampoo because we will be having our summer outing. The sun and sea can really leave your hair really dry. I used this shampoo after a long hot day and my hair was really moisturized without the oiliness! I am now using it everyday since then! I really feel great about my hair when I’m using this product!” – Marijoyce

7. L’Oreal Paris La Palette Nudes, P800 “I thought it would be a waste to buy a high end palette since I only use eyeshadows on special occassions [sic]. I’m no makeup junkie as well, so I thought I can do with a good drugstore find. I recently discovered Loreal’s LA Nude Palette in Rose while I was shopping for necessities and couldn’t help myself since the colors are perfect for my liking. The pigmentation is also quite good. It’s easy to blend and no fall outs. It also lasts longer than expected without eyelid primer on, to think that I have oily lids.” – Diana

8. It’s Skin Power 10 Formula VB Effector, now on sale at P685 (limited time only) “I bought thus [sic] based on the rave reviews of amazing oil control. It really works! I walked around at lunchtime and barely needed a touch up (before using this, wala! Oil slick city!!). It’s sold out as I’m writing this review, glad I snagged one. Will definitely put myself on the waitlist to make sure I restock when it is available.” – Kat

9. Leaders InSolution Coconut Mask with Broccoli, P148 “I only bought this by accident, just so I could have my bill changed with smaller bills and coins. During that time I was using sheet masks from another brand and only used this when I ran out of mask from that particular brand. But lo and behold, I don’t know why I wasted my money from the former brand I was using when this mask is a whole lot better. The next morning after I used this, I was wowed. My skin looked healthier and more glowing. I never had such perfect skin in my life. It sounds exaggerated but you have to try this to know what I mean. The best!” – Camille

10. Ecotools Mini Essentials Set, P460 “These brushes are so soft and silky, that makeup application becomes even more of a joy than it already is! These brushes pick up just a little bit of product, so it’s [ideal] for beginners who are learning just learning how to apply with a light hand. I especially love the powder brush as it just feels so nice on your skin! The angled eyeliner brush, unlike its synthetic equivalents, can manage picking up enough gel product and yet it doesn’t require so much effort to clean. The eye shading brush is ideal for building up pigment, and its soft bristles do not tug along the sensitive skin around the eyes. At less than P500, this is a steal, and a must-have for both novice and veteran makeup lovers!” – Cielo
