1. CosRx BHA Skin Returning A-Sol, P750 “Recently added this to my skin routine as part of the 10 step Korean skincare routine I read here in BeautyMNL. After two weeks of use, pimples and bumps on my problem areas which is my T-zone was fewer. So, for its price this is so worth it for me. Although it has a strong tea tree smell which means that you need to get used to it but this also confirms that the product uses natural ingredients! :)” – Andrea

2. Swan Facial Konjac Puff Sponge, now on sale at P90 (limited time only) “I have been reading a lot about konjac sponges and got interested to try it out. Good thing is that Swan has inexpensive options on this. Using this a few times (up to 3x only) a week with cleanser and lukewarm water helped my dry skin regain better health as I also use other skincare products. I noticed an instant brightening effect each usage so I feel that is doing ita job in clearing out dirt and dead skin cells.” – Princess

Baroness Collagen Mask, now on sale at P85 (limited time only) “I tried this collagen mask twice and it really repairs your skin, you can feel after you slept on it and you see your face in the morning. The scent is really good and calming and this is a perfect after-work mask when you’re stressed all day and you want to treat yourself. It’s also kinda cold so it soothes your tired skin. I will definitely buy this again. :)” – Ann Joelle

It does a good job in masking that unwanted smell after you do number 2. It’s like nothing happened and I love it! Initially I wanted to use this for when I need to use the bathroom when I’m away..but now I’m keeping another bottle at home so that our bathroom would always smell pleasant. :) Since I’m not a big fan of vanilla, I got grapefruit&chamomile and mint and I’m loving them so much I think I’ll hoard next payday :)” – Lesley
