1. It’s Skin Power 10 Formula CO Effector, now on sale at P685 “IT’S SKIN’s Power 10 Formula CO Effector is a serum that packs a serious punch! KAPOW. I used to have two lines on my neck that were very visible and deep. I started using these and the lines on my neck have faded a bit. Very effective. And it takes very little as well. A drop really goes a long long way.” – Janice

2. L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Blackbuster, P400 “I’m a newbie when it comes to eyeliners and though I’ve a lot already, I’ve never really mastered how to use them either for tightlining or just a nice even line. When I saw this product, I immediately gave it a go since it looks so easy to use, and I was right! the felt tip liner gives you so much precision and with eye primer, it dries in a pinch! Not to be used on your waterline though but perfect for that winged look or an everyday look. Been using it for a couple of weeks now and I think I’m getting better at it. Good value for money IMO.” – Chili

3. NYX Butter Lipstick, P390 “I bought my very first red lipstick from the NYX Butter line, in the color Big Cherry (Fire Brick in the renamed summer-themed line) and it was absolutely perfect. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to apply red lipstick properly, but this made it so easy because of the smooth texture that just glides on. Since then it’s helped me ease into using other lipsticks, but it’s still the most used lipstick in my hoard. The color I have in particular is a very versatile red; to give you an idea, I carry it around with me to retouch other red lipsticks I might be wearing, and it’s worked perfectly on everything from Covergirl to MAC Russian Red! I’d recommend NYX Butter Lipsticks for lipstick newbies or people who’ve knocked other lipsticks. Seriously, don’t knock these.” – Stefani

4. Leivy Goat’s Milk Shower Cream, P330 “I am always on the lookout for lotion or body wash products that contains goat’s milk. So, I immediately bought the Leivy Double Moisturising Shower Cream when I chanced upon it on a grocery store near my place. At first try, I was amazed how luxurious it feels and how much it lathers even with just a drop on the shower puff. Not to mention, it is easy to rinse off! It is indeed moisturizing that I do not need to apply lotion after bath like I usually do. It also fragrant without hurting the nose :) By the way, I occasionally use it for my son (who has a mild case of psoriasis on his left armpit and a bit on his belly button) and surprisingly, it helped! Those spots are now smooth and does not dry anymore. This product is now being used by the whole family! It has been 3 weeks now and it’s far from being empty. The Leivy Double Moisturising Shower Cream is a best buy; a product that delivers results without drilling a hole in your pocket. I would definitely purchase this again!” – Janiya

5. L’Oreal Paris Velvet Pinks La Vie En Rose, P400 “The color is not opaque in the first swipe, if that’s what you are expecting. But you can build up the color as you wish. And it looks beauuuutiful! I think we are always looking for that “wow shade” It instantly brightens up the face and gives you that lit-from-within warm glow. The texture is truly velvety matte. There is absolutely no tugging or pulling as the lipstick glides on your lips effortlessly.” – Michelle

6. Be Organic Bath & Body Argan Oil Foaming Face Wash, now on sale at P198 “I’ve struck gold with this facial wash! It was my first time trying out a foaming wash so that was quite enjoyable. After trying this out for a month I can say that this is by far the best product for me. Unlike the numerous facial wash products I’ve used, this one does not dry out my skin. It truly leaves the face fresh and hydrated. True to its words, it cleanses, moisturizes, and soothes the skin without drying it! My skin is now looking better. I recommend this to everyone, especially those with combination to oily skin. It’s absolutely liquid gold.” – Karen

Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Mousse Starter, P655 “landed by this and as it promise it will minimized the appearance of pores and guess what?? really claims the promise … this is so cheap! if you want to save your benefit porefessional because of the hot season then this one is your baby! really make my face matte [sic] with the healthy shine like those koreans and it holds for whole day! THIS IS A GREAT BUY AND YOU SHOULD TRY IT!” – Cristine

8. Bioré Micellar Water, P189 “This removes all my long-wearing makeup and my skincare routine hasn’t been the same since I started using this. I did notice that this left a film after I remove my makeup since I still wash my face after using this. Other than that, the affordable price tag, and the fact that it didn’t break me out during the one month period that I was testing this out are enough reasons for me to repurchase. My love for this is at the same level for Biore’s Cleansing Wipes.” – Lorraine

9. LA Colors Tinted Cheek & Lips, now on sale at P134* “I bought mine for summer time. I know that cream blush is a NO-NO during hot season, but this baby proved me wrong. I can wear this all day! Just make sure that you put enough sunscreen on your face before exposing to sunlight. But the best thing about this is I don’t have to bring my lipstick anymore because this baby can do the job! :)” – Karen B.

10. L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Night Cream-Mask, now on sale at P1,124* “Now that I’m in my 30’s, I now get concerned about aging and showing fine lines and wrinkles. It’s great that there are a lot of available anti aging product in the market, and I think Loreal revitalift line is one of those great products! [sic] I use this night cream after the power water and serum and it’s good. The night cream is much thicker than the day cream but the texture is still great. The best part is that I don’t encounter any skin allergies or bad reaction…just better skin.” – Jenifer
