1. Oile & Co. 100% Organic Marula (15ml), now on sale at P600 (limited time only) “I use this every morning and night because my skin is very dry. I noticed that it helps my skin to be well moisturized and even though it is in a form of oil, it is not greasy. I apply a drop of it to my foundation or bb cream and it makes my skin look healthier and dewy. I bought another bottle of this because I am really satisfied with it’s moisturising benefits.” – Rich

2. OMO! White WonderClear Pure Pore Beauty Toner, P299 “I tried to buy this as I saw the buy 1 take 1 promo and I said I’ll give it a go. Well after using the product, I noticed that my pores instantly became smoother and less visible. I have this acne prone and super oily skin, and guess what, finally, I can say I found the product that suits me! I am very happy with my purchase and I will continue using this product. Awesome work OMO!” – Pamela

3. Rorec Green Tea Absorbing Paper, now on sale at P134 (limited time only) “My face oils up so fast and layering on more powder makes me look cakey. I always have oil blotting paper on hand for times like this. So far, one of the best ones I’ve tried is Rorec’s Green Tea Oil Absorbing Paper. It absorbs the oil but leaves my makeup so I look fresh all day. Love it so much!” – Melinda

4. Skin Revolution Bentonite Mineral Mud Mask, now on sale at P480 (limited time only) “Basically this one is like a Bentonite Clay mask that’s already mixed and ready to apply, which is really quite convenient. I tried this mask because I was looking to detoxify my skin and clarify my skin. After my first try, this mask left my skin feeling soft, smooth and pretty clean, [my] pores seems to look smaller and my skin seemed less oily. In addition, my face felt very refreshed and the dead skin cells were taken away along with the clay mask that I washed off. Overall, I’m quite satisfied. Plus, the container is much larger than I expected so I can used this for a much longer period of time! Yey for this!” – Anna

5. COSRX Low pH First Cleansing Milk, P950 “I have been using this for more than a month now and all I can say is that this is really good! I have acne prone skin and I only wear sunscreen and powder in daytime and this does a good job in removing them. I like how milky and gentle it is to the skin, it does not irritate my face at all. I also notice that when I use this my pimples would calm down and won’t grow any bigger compared to the time I wasn’t using this product. It’s no surprise for this product contains salicylic acid and witch hazel. However, I’ve read in cosrx’s post in IG that if you are wearing heavy makeup then this won’t do a good job removing them all. This works best for removing sunscreen and light makeup only especially for those with sensitive skin which I have.” – Veronica

6. Dear Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream, P1,280 “This is the best moisturizer so far. At first I thought it would feel sticky on my face since we have a humid weather here bit surprisingly it wasn’t. I used it day and night and it moistened my face instantly. After I woke up, I can feel that I have soft skin. I used it with klairs toner, serum and sun lotion.” – Johanna

7. Stylista Hair Essentials Jetset Travel Brush, now on sale at P199 (limited time only) “The grip on this brush is just right. I like that it features a bristles cover so we are certain it doesn’t tangle into anything in the bag. I like that it feels like massaging your scalp each time you brush. I see very few trapped hair strands unlike when I use others, that seems to gather a bunch of hair after every brush. It also glided so smoothly on my daughter’s long locks. For me as personal preference and because I have short hair, if it can come in an even smaller, travel friendly size, that [would] be awesome. This is good as it is, though.” – Emile

8. Pro Studio Beauty Exclusives Sponge and Brush Cleanser, now on sale at P249 (limited time only) “This product cleans both make-up brushes and sponges better than ordinary soap. I’ve tried their liquid cleanser and the nippon liquid cleanser - this is more effective in my opinion, especially for cleaning sponges. Packaging is great too with the dryer. In terms of deep cleaning, the Beauty Blender Cleanser solid does its job a little better - but that is around 5x the price so it might not be worth it unless you only clean your brushes and sponges once every so often. I clean mine once every 1-2 weeks so I think this is more worth the price.” – Ann

9. Bare Body Essentials Vanity Mask (100g), P260 “I’ve been hearing a lot about this product so my friend bought one for me and sent it to me as a gift. This is the best face mask I’ve used.so far. I have oily skin and when I started to use this I noticed it reduced the oiliness but it didn’t dry my skin. After use my skin became soft and looked vibrant and has a refreshing feel. I also use this whenever I have breakouts and I’m very satisfied with the result. The natural ingredient is also a plus for me because I’m a fan of green tea. For me this is highly recommended and definitely will buy again. Thanks to Beautymnl!” – Elle

10. Lash Bar Inc. Mink 3D Lash in Claudia, now on sale at P349 (limited time only) “Super duper love this style of lashes. I love that it has different lenths [sic] of hair for a 3D effect, and it’s the perfect length for me. I wore this with just a winged liner and it looks gorgeous! The band is also easy to work with. Will definitely re-purchase if I need to.” – Artha

11. Skin Genie Apple Cider Vinegar Creamy Mask with Bentonite Clay, P350 “Bought this due to its promising ingredients and hey it actually delivers! Been using this for almost three months, usually once a week. Tho i remember the first time using this caused me some kind of purging? Not sure if its because of detoxification phase. But then glad that I gave it another try and it actually dried up my cystic bumps! I dont leave it overnight tho, I usually apply it for about two hours starting with my mej damp face after washing with lukewarm water to easily apply the mask. Thanks skin genie for this!” – Melle

12. Roarganics Pure Matcha Powder (250g), P1,000 “Like what the previous comment said, this is worth the money and more practical than buying in fewer grams of pure matcha powder! I had a hard time with the packaging (the powder is bagged inside the sealed package) but I know it is to avoid any leak and contamination. It has a stronger herb-y (rather than the matcha scent that I know of) smell compared to other pure matcha powder I’ve tried. If you have the money, better get this one and you can save a lot!” – Lav
